    I still feel wary about it, but it must be true if there is no date on them?

    Canned goods etc. don't have to have a date on them if they have a shelf life of more than 2 years. They SHOULD have a code somewhere on them, and if you want to know what they "best before" date is, you can ring the company and tell them the code. That said, I imagine most canned foods would last a hell of a lot longer than any best before date they set for them anyway.

    Rejection is no indication of sh!teness...Harry Potter was rejected 8 time...

    Although in Twihards case, it probably was due to sh!teness.

    I just say 'moet' correctly but add a bogan accent so it appears like i'm taking the p1ss - that way i get to say it correctly but it just looks like i'm making fun rather than getting it 'wrong'. It also works as a little private joke to myself as people think i'm making fun of people who 'say it wrong' but i'm really just making fun because i think it taste like crud

    I live near there and drive through noosa nearly every day. Considering there are so many round-a-bouts you think people would know how to use them.... But they don't

    Eta- you have to indicate left when exiting the roundabout. And you can't turn right from the damn left lane so don't do it! Argh!
    I learnt to drive back on 1987 (Qld) and it was definitely law then that you had to indicate left to leave the RAB even when going straight ahead. So, when you're turning left you indicate left, when going right you indicate right until just before you exit then indicate left to show you are leaving and for straight ahead you don't indicate until you're about the leave the RAB when you indicate left.

    I wonder if it's like the inside lane, outside lane thing where there are conflicting beliefs? Inside lane to me is the left lane, outside lane is the right lane but I know not everyone will agree.

    Ha! I lived in the UK for 8 years and that RAB is nothing compared to some over there. Some of the big RABs had traffic lights on all entrances, some had 3 lanes entering and only 2 to exit and then there was my favourite with 2 RABs next to each other. I used to leave work either early or late to miss traffic. I left on time one day and at through 12 changes of traffic lights before I got out of the car park - and that was just another day, nothing special. There was a couple of times I got caught in football (soccer) match times and sat in my car for 2 hours without moving.
