    Australia solves this problem – fining people who don’t vote.

    So apathetic people vote too (because apathetic or not, $20 is $20).

    Wait . . .

    Forgive me, but snowmobiles being not much of a feature of life in Sydney . . is that a lot?

    Interesting perspective:

    1) The idea that one should clean away all body odour producing substances is a relatively recent one (requiring access to a LOT of clean water, so much that one can afford to use drinkable water to scrub!). Therefore it’s only surprising to us because of our current values. It’s simply a matter of how much things have changed over hundreds of years.

    2) This ALSO doesn’t mean that the king was necessarily dirty – he probably washed with a cloth and a basin of water.

    If Cysteine is an Amino acid, you’ll be able to find it in almost anything living. It is typically extracted from protein waste material (poultry feathers, pig bristle) because that’s the simplest and cheapest way to get it.

    It’s NOT extracted from human hair, at least not for industrial purposes.

    Yet another pun ruined by the fact that in Australian English, Banana doesn’t rhyme with Savannah, Cabana or Can a. :D

    (For us, the As in Banana are long. :) )

    Oi! Comic Book Censor! Can you leave Pearls Before Swine for five minutes? You’re wanted over here! :D

    The amount of mass which could be lifted by the FORCE GENERATED by all the muscles would be 25 tons. A human still couldn’t lift anything like that much.

    Fascinating – it must be my English heritage. I just realised today that here in Australia where I’ve lived most of my life, Ferret Legging isn’t a thing!

    However, in the more . . traditional parts of England, the “Bloke what puts ferrets doon ’is trooser legs” is top class entertainment. :)

    Gotta love Dr Karl! It should be noted (for Non-Aussies) that he’s one of our best public Science communicators. He has an unerring instinct for scientific studies that bring out the weird and hilarious side of Science. His books are amazing.

    I think Zebra might be drawing a long bow. . .
