A CNN reporter, while interviewing a Marine sniper, asked, "What do you feel when you shoot a terrorist?"

The marine shrugged and replied, "Recoil."

Subject: FW: Aussies lead in world technology battle
After having dug to a depth of 10 feet last year, British scientists found traces of copper wire dating back
200 years and came to the conclusion that their ancestors already had a telephone network more than
150 years ago.
Not to be outdone by the British, in the weeks that followed, an American archaeologist dug to a depth of 20 feet.
Shortly after, a story published in the New York Times said: "American archaeologists, finding traces of
250-year-old copper wire, have concluded that their ancestors already had an advanced high-tech
communications network 50 years earlier than the British".
One week later, Australia's Northern Territory Times reported the following:
"After digging as deep as 30 feet in his backyard in Tennant Creek, Northern Territory, James 'Knackers' Mitchell, a self-taught
archaeologist reported that he found absolutely bugger-all.
Knackers has therefore concluded that 250 years ago, Australia had already gone wireless."
...Makes ya bloody proud to be Australian!


Is that Aussie for "Diddly-squat"?

The obama admin put the word 'terrorist' on their politically incorrect list. Seriously!

Allan, your joke is more than just funny. It's what much of science has become today. It's getting to a place where it takes more faith to believe in much of what science is saying than it does to believe in God. Science has become political and money driven.

I've never heard the term 'bugger-all'. That's probably not a word that you would want to confuse with 'buggery' - as in "What he gave me in return for my help was buggery." (If I meant to say 'bugger-all.)



It means the same as Fanny Adams.

Keith, who worked for years with people from Australia, New Zealand, England, Wales, Scotland, and South Africa.  The one that still gets me is Cockney rhyming slang.   This is where a word or phrase gets substituted into a rhyming phrase (or name), then often the rhyming part is dropped.  If you don't know, you haven't a Scooby.

Bugger-all meand nothing or next to nothing

You have bugger-all
You have nothing
