2. No poofdas.
Now, obviously this is a reference to a Monty Python sketch about Australians, but I read it and I began to wonder: Now Australia seems, to me at least to be pretty damn gay friendly (as a culture, obviously there are those who don't like gay people, but it seems generally open to homosexuality at least in many urban areas) so at the time of the sketch, was this mocking a real attitude or was it already beginning to be outmoded? I assume the former is loser to the truth but my grasp of Australian social history is limited to what I can glean from Brides of Christ and similar.

Assuming that was the attitude, what events are significant to the change in attitudes?

It's certainly better accepted in the larger cities, but we currently elected a right-wing government who promised no gay marriages on the campaign trail...

He may have moved my post with the link in it to the other thread, too. :)

At any rate, it is here: And then... the ship hit the fan! [mech design & anything else across SF series]

I'm probably going to make the title clearer (when I can think clearer).  It may mean taking the wordplay out (which... given the attitude of some people here towards puns and other wordplay... might be appreciated, actually ;)).

Your thoughts have been deemed insufficiently random as defined by the Randomness Act (2014).  Organized thought is prohibited.

No biggie. :)  I pity you having to read through them all again (not that there weren't interesting posts for those of us interested, just that you didn't sound into the discussion in the first place).
