Which means visits to mum and dad are always marked with a slab of peanut butter on toast. peanut butter with anything...jam, honey, nutella, sweetened condensed milk, is really good! Hummus is also a...

    Thanks Clockwerk....ironically, I've actually just had a haircut! This is how long my hair was before: (the other dude is my dad. We're dancing at his high school reunion, whilst one of his ex classmates, who is an Elvis impersonator, performs.) Thanks :) I have them in purple too! I like...

    Formula SAE (student formula)

    what nsx_23 said. Monash seem to have everything sorted, and keeping the chassis to a simple spaceframe helps with time management. I was track marshalling endurance on Sunday morning and they looked very quick on track even in the rain. Apparently they were a little dicey in teh arvo session...

    Formula SAE (student formula)

Yesterday set up the admin tent and did shitloads...

    FG Fitness Challenge

    I'm in! My goal is to be able to run around my park without stopping by Christmas. It's not that long, only 2km, but I have never been able to run before so I think it's a goal that will actually be acheivable. My other goal is to be able to swim 1km in an indoor pool nonstop by Christmas. I...

    The "Spirit of Christmas" or "Ho, Ho, Fucking Ho!" Thread

    I love christmas! For me it's all about seeing my loved ones and eating awesome food. And christmas carols at church at midnight (one of the two times I go to church every year). I fucking love them (and mean that with no irony or sarcasm whatsoever). We don't have any family (ie aunties...
