That's a little easier than trying to figure out the sexual proclivities of an orb...

Bi(g) globe grab?

Not sure if it has to be three-dimensional, so I'm waiting for approval!

Who or what brand is that?

I've never seen it in Australia, though that is not very surprising; Australian wildlife isn't very exotic here! For example, I've seen "Koala" brand shampoo in Canada but not in Australia.

In light of a BIG sports event going on at the moment - find me a BIG screen showing the Olympic Games!

Sorry it took so long... Busy days.
The company's called TransDEM. It's a Lausanne based family business that's been doing all kinds of national and international transports since 25 years or so.
There's no conection to Australia whatsoever, they're just using the kangaroo to show how "global", international, they are. As you say - it's exotic and it's the other side of the world - always impressive.


btw - the Australian that you are, do you know Kate Peck?

That would have fitted well for the moose tag a few months back.

I'm not actually Australian; I'm one of the one in three or so of us who came from somewhere else. Should I know her; there are only 20 million plus of us here.

Only if you're into fashion or Formula1, I guess.
Never mind anyway, was just curious, as I'll spend the weekend riding with her parents.

So where are your roots then?

So the Olympics are over.

On this side of the pond they play in bars and at home mostly. Never actually in my life seen any Olympic action on the big screen.

Are we good with just a sporting event on the big screen? Don't know where to find one of those either but it'll be easier than finding the Olympics now.

I thought that it would be an easy one...
But as you say, now the Olympics are over - so go for any big screen you can find! No matter what it's showing.

If this isn't doable, let me know - we have to move on!
