Open your refrigerator and/or freezer door, erect tent with opening adjoining the open section of refrigerator, sit inside tent, and enjoy.

Here is your answer below. remember if we end up in the top 20 wildcards then we still have from February 29 to March 9 2008 to vote on the most nominated Wildcard cities. Only the top two will make it on the board! Tha...

Re: #Vision: New Inner-City Stadium

A new stadium, inner city location, should be built with the World Cup in mind, not AFL. If it has to be another oval shaped pitch, then I hope they design it so seating can be added in to make the pitch rectangular. Of course it would then need to have a roof as all seating for WC stadiums need to...

Re: #News: Sale of Adelaide Casino on Hold

I was in the Casino this weekend, and aside from the recently-developed North Terrace section and Marble Hall, most of it looks like an over-inflated RSL. The central courtyard is embarrassingly cheap. I should hope that a sale brings with it newfound interest in the upgrades. Sorry to say it, but ...

Re: TV Show: Vertical City

National Geographic Channel's 'Megastructures' is also shown on the Ten HD channel during the week at some time. Check that one out too...it focusses on constructions that are extreme, ie. the biggest, longest, tallest etc. and also project's with an element of novelty such as Dubai's Palm Islands. ...

Re: Republic of Australia?

If it's not broken don't fix it. I don't see the big deal about Charles being the Monarch of Australia either...ok, he has big ears and is married to a horse, but at the end of the day the King/Queen of England has next to no influence in the day to day matters of the country. Also, if the Republic ...
