Darwin – home of restraint and good taste

The Twin Towers rise again. If you don’t believe it you don’t know Darwin. Back in the 1980s our principal gay nighclub was named Dix, while its main hetero competitor was called Fannies.

PS – Speaking of restraint and good taste (not to mention wit and intelligence), I see Tim Blair has finally succumbed to the irresistable temptation to blog about Margo Kingston, but not before he outlasted the predictions of every participant in TA’s contest (except Gummo, who cheated and was awarded a win as a result). A RWDB with iron willpower is not to be lightly trifled with.

LOL! “I’m not in great favour of re-inventing the wheel” is a classic. It’d be an orginal response from one of your students, nabbed for online plaigiarism, Ken.
