You lucky. My mate got hung up by his daks after rigging the high end of a flying fox out of a walnut tree. Daks eventually ripped and you coulda drawn a chalk outline of him around the dent he left in the ground That night he was meeting his then-girlfriend's parents for the first time, with an arse cheek hanging out of his daks and his wedding tackle on display when he walked away from you... she wasn't very 'impressed' but it must've worked, they're married now.

Here is a Beemer in the SI that would make a good cafe/racer.

I find they are overpriced when you already have one, but affordable if you really want it...
All I saw really were the spoked wheels and ATE front end

You're damn right. Along those lines if you want to buy something on trademe that something costs a fortune & there are never any around. You go to sell something & suddenly they're worth nothing & being imported by every bugger from china.

I'm still kicking myself for turning down that bloody R100 for $800- DOH!!!

Frozen Planet.

How come the helicopter manages to find the wolves tracking the herds of Bison/ yak things?

How does the helicopter find the school of Orca hunting a minke whale?

Photoshopped???? Set up???

Yes it is off topic.

Frozen Planet is the best thing I seen on tele for ages. Killer whales (are they not Orcas anymore?) belong on the animal wall of coolness.

If the helicopter hadn't scared the bison then the wolves could have just snuck up on them and not wasted all that energy chasing them.

How did they get into the mummy polar bears nest thing? I don't think I'd be poking around in there.

Apparently that was filmed at a Zoo, not in the Artic. There was a bit of woo-haa about that a while ago. Disappointing eh.

Yep orcas are cool alright, I've had a few real close encounters with them out here.
Just as well they dont consider us as food I guess,
Havent seen them round for a year or so.....maybe they're off on a photo shoot someplace.

Yeah, cause animals in a zoo are fake animals.

OK then. How the hell did the penguins evolve to stand there all winter, in the middle on Antarctica, with eggs on their feet. I mean, evolution is a pretty slow process, so how did they just come up with doing that shit.

They're obviously not the smartest critters around, but they must be bloody tough.
