Like pop songs with modem sounds, today’s underwear on the outside brigade have short-shelf lives. Perhaps we just don’t need costumes anymore. Maybe ‘We don’t need another hero, we just need to know the wa-ay home’? Or maybe our short attention spans require not costumed monoliths, but mere splinters / fragments and tangental heroes? Let’s see…

If in doubt as to which year, the original and incredible hulk was runner up to Arnold Schwarzenegger in the World Bodybuilding Championships, don’t hestitate to borrow the quite illuminating documentary ‘Pumping Iron’.

Alan Bamford emailed this mobile_phone tip:
* To check your Mobile phone’s serial number, key in the following on your phone: star hash zero six hash as (*#06#)
* A 15 digit code will appear on the screen. This number is unique to your handset.
* Write it down and keep it somewhere safe. Should your phone get stolen, call your service provider and give them this code.
* They can then block your handset so even if the thief changes the Sim card your phone will be totally useless.
* You probably won’t get your phone back, but at least you know that whoever stole it, can’t use/sell it either.
* If everybody did this, there would be no point in stealing mobile phones.

Twenty people were sitting high in a large branched fig tree just outside the fences of beside Melbourne’s Myer Dust Bowl, as Lee Scratch Perry & Mad Professor whipped up a mighty dub_storm recently.

Just this year, in February like, 22 year old Luke Tresoglavic was snorkeling off a beach near Newcastle. Despite the town’s industrial reputation, the beaches of this coastline are quite remarkable and it’s probable that Luke enjoyed a clear view of the under_ocean spectacle. At least that is, until there was blood everywhere – caused by a ‘small’ wobbegong shark biting into his left leg. Unable to remove the feisty ‘little’ bugger, Luke swam 300metres to the beach with the shark attached to his leg. Unfortunately the two sunbathers on the beach were unable to pry the shark’s mouth open, and so Luke got into his car, wedged the shark against his gearstick and drove to the local surfclub – where the shark was drowned in freshwater and removed from Luke’s leg. True story, and most surely, supa_hero of the week.
