    Maybe a silly question. But with buying BAND t-shirts where do you buy them from EBAY? other clothing websites?, Music shops? the bands actual web site? , or at the gigs? . .... I use all those , but kinda feel like dirty when I don't but off the bands directly but gee sometimes the postage and shipping costs kill me ...

    All of the above, well not so much ebay, (not for any other reason than havn't looked)
    Moslty at gigs and from their direct online sales sites.
    To me postage is just one of those things that will always be there when shopping online, I dont really think to much about it, Id always buy at a show if I can...

    Yeah I have expereinced the same, I think it's more so like that for IT related, you can get 100k+ jobs even with only a TAFE certificate. It comes down to experience and how good you are at what you do over what/where you've studied.

    I'd imagine it's not like that for many other professions though.

    Does anyone know anywhere in the UK or Europe that sells blu rays (mainly anime) with free postage?

    Why do we get the shivers when we hear someone scratching a chalk board?

    I have just en-rolled in a post grad course, Music Teaching. 10k all up, considering I am earning $32k now and a teacher can get $60k+ and 12 weeks holidays I think it's a good investment of money and time.

    It's a primal reaction to the sound. When we were still living on the plains and using sharp sticks as weapons, a noise like that was made by some kind of large hungry animal. It's basically a reaction we've never gotten rid of.

    There's another shivering phenomenon, people shivering after they piss. Some do, some don't and nobody understands why exactly.

    One theory is, as you expel urine you're losing body heat and this could cause the shiver.

    It's certainly not a fight-or-flee response like the blackboard thing, though.

    The blackboard thing for me was never about the noise, I could listen to it no problems, the issue to me was the thought of my fingernails scraping on that terrible surface and the vibration through my fingers.

    Put it this way, I wouldn't be able to do it, even if I was wearing earplugs and looking away.

    They got too fat, or too thin for their wedding band.

    Yeah, I wear my wedding ring on my necklace because it doesn't fit on my finger any more and it's too much hassle to get it resized incrementally. I now wear this other ring as a fake wedding ring, you know, to deter the hordes of horny women.

    I was in a bar on the weekend, I went up to get a drink and was standing their waiting. A random girl started talking to me as soon as she heard the Aussie accent (massive chick puller :D)

    I had my ring hand on the bar, and she suddenly leaned over, touched my wedding ring and said "Married" then stopped talking to me :lol:

    I got breath tested right before Christmas and the cop who pulled me over asked me to count to ten into the breathaliser (z?).

    It beeped at 3 and I thought it may have told her that I just had a few drinks at a Christmas party I was just at.

    Instead she asked for my drivers license, and I accidentally pulled out my credit card.

    To which she said "We take cash or cheque too".

    I said "Well, I don't think my wife will really appreciate that".

    Then she leaned down and said "Well, if you get divorced, I'm usually at Bankstown station."

    She then handed my license back to me and got on with her job, motioning me to move on by waving her pointed hand towards the traffic flow like nothing happened.

    I drove home, thinking about why this shit never happened when I was single and looking for it.

    When I'm lying alone in my double bed tonight, I will think of these stories and weep.

    That stuff never happens to me. Even when I'm holding a baby. I used to get hit on all the time when I was single. Well I say all the time, but I'm not Tom Jones or anything.
