And now something completely different


I need 2 tyres on a car
Problem is that it is in fact a very old car
An not only old, small as well
It is a rare Dinky Toy
Austin Cambridge A50

I'm scanning the net, but haven't found anything yet.
The car I own (somewhere in an aircraft between California and Amsterdam) , it only misses two tyres.

Wow. This certainly makes up for you not being able to get hold of those Australian tape guys last week. the internet has redeemed itself.

I'm still looking for that one.
Maybe there is a telephonebook for australia on line

And I am also looking for family of me in Australia.
Last thing I know was that they had a large hotel of chain of hotels. The children were mainly musicians, one of them was on australian tv many times playing the piano. The familyname should be that of my mothers Postma. Any thoughts? My mother is visiting us tomorrow and I will ask here if she nows more.
Now we have the time of internet family connections could be restored simply though?.

For a normal drain the direction of turning is different but on a toilet?

I've heard this too. Also the threads on screws and bolts are manufactured to go the other way for use in the southern hemisphere.

Haha!

I'll never forget that story my history told me about when he went to Indonesia and went on a day trip to the partition between the hemispheres. His company had brought containers with holes in it so they could play with the drain.

What happens if you're on the exact border? :puzzled:

am i now expected to go outside, get my bike, and ride 50 kilometres to the neighbours? ;-)

like ded said, the toilet doesn't display any common circular direction. it just goes down after splashing around a bit.

for drains... i'll just check.

it goes anti-clockwise.

in the north it goes clockwise
in the south hemisphere it goes to the left
it's like if you move a spoon in a glass
if you move it clockwise and you see it from the top it goes to the right
but if you look to the glass from downunder with out stoping moving it
you'll see it going to the left side...
am i clear or crasy?

I was going to say crazy, but you're right! But I'd like to see you sitting below a toilet pot checking which way the water goes from there.

I don't know about the fire in Australia, but the tempest in France is over. It didn't do as much damage as it did a few years ago (in 2000 if my memory doesn't fail me) but unfortunately a few people were killed by falling trees. :umm:

Anything happen to you or your neighborhood, or do you live way out of the way?
