Dave!I was looking at internet news sites this evening to see what was happening in the world, and came upon a story about the "Occupy Sydney" protest in Australia. As soon as I saw the photo, I realized "hey, that's next door to the hotel I stayed at!

If my vacation was two weeks later, I might have been mistaken as a protestor and got the shit beaten out of me by the police! How brutally cool would that have been?

Thank you Google Maps Street View!

And then later on this evening I read where an American diver was killed in a shark attack near Perth.

If my vacation was two weeks later and had taken place across the country, I might have been mistaken as an appetizer in shark-infested waters! How lethally cool would that have been?

And then.... then... even later this evening I read where a woman outside of Ballarat, Australia had drunken sex with four underage boys.

If my vacation was two weeks later and had taken place in a time paradox whereas my 12-year-old self were thrust forward to the year 2011, I might have been victimized by a piece of shit alcoholic pedophiliac sexual predator with low self-esteem problems! How disgustingly cool would that have been?

Guess I really did have the perfect vacation.

Given the alternative.

    As far as your 12 year old self is concerned- Mega Cool! I have significant problems concerning teen boys banging older women being characterized as “victimization”. I wish I could have been so mistreated.

      At twelve? Well, okay then… I’m sorry an alcoholic pedophile never abused you then.

      Umm… you DID read where she was the one doing the penetrating, right?

      • Jeff says:

        I was referring to older teen boys- I didn’t read the story you are referring to and the detail you provided certainly would change my opinion.

    I guess I know if I ever go to Australia, I know the places to “avoid”.

    You SO missed out.

    I’m certain it’s a personal issue that all I saw in that whole post was MATRIX FOUNTAIN!!!
