Dogs that bark constantly at non-existent objects and cats that expect attention and then bite or scratch as repayment make really good target practice.  Small caliber high velocity ammo is better than the sub-sonic stuff.

They upset the delicate balance in most environments, roaming free in the nights, breeding and killing while their lazy arse owners sleep without care. They ate my homework, created havoc on our public transport, are responsible for the drought, started the war in Iraq and crashed my computer. Contrary to what most people will try and tell you, global warming is caused by cat farts not those lovely bovines.

"I don't mind PROPER cats"- what the hell does that mean, Rich? Are you getting a panther? You clearly don't like lions and tigers.



  I understand now Roberth..but, it was also cats that landed on the moon, discovered penicillin and invented the internet and I.T. ..think...if it wasn't for cats, we wouldn't be able to chat (uh oh !!!)

Yeah, yeah, but they had help on the internet thing from Al Gore, didn't they. He probably did most of the work, because cats are such lazy bastards.

Yeah, all you theoretical cat haters are probably like my Dad who talked about what a pain the "damned old cat" was.  But when we came back from vacation he was on the floor asking if "the lonely old puddy tat missed us".

One way to prevent the cat from missing him at all would be to stamp on it, hard. Regularly. It definitely wouldn't miss him then !

Geez, you boys should try to get on better. You'll both be pleased to hear that we had our replacement fishing trip last Saturday. It was one of the best days we have had yet. Nothing to do with me getting biggest fish, again. This time it was a 62cm king fish. Mmmmm. I ate it ( with some help) on Sunday and Monday. Mmmmm. We caught a total of about 43 fish. Apart from the king fish, we caught one good sized rock cod and about 20 of each morwong and leather jacket. We were fishing in about 100 metres, approx. 10 kms from the coast. The day was warm and sunny with a 1/2 metre choppy swell and a slight breeze. We also had a minke whale circle us for about 20 minutes and we saw a humpback about 50 metres away later in the day.

Ok Neil, I cave in to your distate of our scaley swimmers......why exactly do you hate trout so much ?....I appreciate some people hate them , you seem to have a particularly high angst towards them. I'm not trying to convert you, just interested how this loathing of them came to be.

Yes...I submit, you got me on that one !!!....but the real reasn I don't like trout is that they're too bony, and I don't like the flavour....besides that I like most fish.

Rob....Can you eat a morwong and leather jacket ?....and if you do, do they have distinct flavours ?

Morwong is sometimes referred to as deep sea bream. The flesh is white with only a few bones. We peel the skin from the leather jacket when we clean them and cut off the barbs. The flesh is also white and bone free. They both have a different taste and different textured flesh and are both good eating. They both make good bone free fillets, which is important for the kids. Out of these two, I prefer the leather jacket. I prefer king fish over these, then snapper, then barramundi would be my favourite (from what I've tried). Unfortunately, we wont catch barramundi anytime soon offshore Sydney.

I'm not too crazy about cats either. I've had friends with cats and they just give me the creeps. If you sit in the floor long enough, they will inevitably put their "pucker" right in your face! I don't want to see that! I wanna put a pencil in it! They beg you to pet 'em and rub all over you and when they're tired of it, they claw the hell out of you. They try to trip you when you're going down stairs. Hell, I'm convinced that if a dog owner died, their loyal friend would bark for help and if a cat owner died...the cat would eat them!I just don't trust them.

Are we talking about cats or my ex? I got lost for a sec.

Cats domesticated themselves! How shifty is that?! Coniving, manipulative, selfish, owner-eating weazel-esque varmints!

I loved this topic. Americans are ok, i haven't meet one that i haven't got on with, they were both very polite.

I got a bit pawed off when it went off topic and went onto cats.
[pawed off, ok not to good, i must try better]
