Umm, What's a "pommie"?
I'm curious, as well, if there is an actual scientific / medical reason why the accents go away.

Its the nickname that the old convicts from down under call us english!

I quite like it actually. As for accents, i've noticed that many are less evident when people sing! As for Busted, its lucky for you mate that they'll never break into the global music scene!
just look at em:

mmm they look so cool. Bet they have got really nice personalities and are great fun to chat with too ! They look like a bundle of laughs. What type of noise (can't call it music) do they aspire to making ?

"the old convicts from down under"  C'mon Exodus, I'm not that old and I can't remember being a convict either..but you seem right about Busted. I don't think they'll break the international music scene anytime soon on their looks anyway. Were they all Rhodes scholars because they look like they could have been.

Thanks, guys. I thought it was pretty funny, but I just can't let these things go by without comment. It must have been the diet of Monty Python and Blackadder when I was younger. The Life of Brian was the funniest movie I have ever seen and the current crop of high tech action and predictable comedy movies pale in comparison to some of their classic movies and shows.

I live in Sydney. Its currently the middle of winter and the weather today is fine with a maximum temperature of 18 C and a minimum of 7. It's gettin' cold here but it's all relative I guess.

Robert, we have something in common there! I'm a huge fan of Monty Python, although the Holy Grail is my favourite of the films, Brian isn't far behind...

Classic lines in Brian though such as "He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy, Now P*ss Off! SO FUNNY!

Hi Chris,

I'd like that. I'll give you my details closer to the time.

The only problem with you coming here for that long, you wont want to go home. Sydney is a great place.

Hello everyone.

I've just found this site and have enjoyed reading and learning from all your posts. I'm also an Aussie, but I live in Queensland about 1000 kms north of Sydney, near the beach.

I'm a bit of a late starter in the field of Science. It's taken me 22 years after finishing high-school to finally get to University. I'm currently a PhD student researching human disease genetics. I love my work! :D

Hi , My name is Neil....and Im...well...I'm old enough !!...I don't sleep much and therfore spend a lot of time talking crap and morose ramblings.

I am not a scientist but love science and Sci Fi. I am a layman in everything here but have an avid curiosity.  I have a couple of business interests of which one is owning a Hi Fi and AV store in london which Exodus is gonna come in and give me lots of money and he will receive lots of listening pleasure !!

I have a wifey and three Bra...err kids !!other interests are being a human obstacle course for my 21 month of daughter !!

That's about it......I'm passionate about music, listening and playing...(mainly listening)...it's the only way I can relax !!

Right then......
I'm called Toni (Montana because of Al Pacino's character in Scarface)  I studied Sociology at the University of London so normally have little contribution to make to most of the threads but enjoy reading and learning along the way.  Work in IT support for a bank, although would happily travel and live out of a ruck sack for the rest of my days.  After graduation I lived in Vancouver for a year and then Melbourne.  And am home in front of a pc on a Saturday night, lol.
