With all the Aussies on this list, I figured that it was more on-topic than
some recent posts...


*** Update: Rodney 'Crocodile' Ansell killed in shootout

DARWIN, Australia (AP) - A rugged Australian whose experiences
inspired the lead character in the movie "Crocodile Dundee" was
killed in a gun battle after shooting a police officer to death,
officials said Wednesday. Police named the dead gunman as Rodney
William Ansell, 44, of Urapunga ranch in the Roper River region of
the Northern Territory. Actor Paul Hogan based the lead role in the
1986 Hollywood hit on Ansell, who in the late 1970s survived for two
months alone in the Outback after becoming stranded. The story of
Ansell, a skilled bushman able to live off the land, made news and
inspired the Crocodile Dundee character, script co-author Ken Shadie
said. See

Two months is that all! Laciter survived for nearly 3. The locals survived
for their entire life

I find it quite strainge that he was shoot, being a man of the Bush one
would think that he would have dissapeared (Generally most people wonder
off into the desert and never are seen again) This leads me to think that
he may have been under the infulance and for the better term of "Peoples
safety" he was shoot.


There has not been much noise about this around here, but then again I stay
clear of the news <G>

Just be glad you live on the East coast Glen, we have had a lot of
problems with aggressive Koala bears this
year. Even though we live in an inner suburb my kids are afraid to go
outside alone!!

 You mean the sharks?  Lance is right!

 So that's what they were?  I was trying to get over the thing at 6 pm
last Friday evening (something I vowed to avoid on my next visit to
Sydney) and it sure was *real* slow.

 Koala *Bears*?  I think you just blew your alibi!  We have a Koala
(sic.) hospital in town here.  Anyone else know a town with one?

 I thought the Wombats were the *real* danger.

 The rule with Koalas though is:  Don't stand still.  Their eyesight
isn't real good, and if they accidentally mistake you for a tree, you're
a goner!

Yes, the Koala is NOT a bear !  The term "Koala Bear" is totally wrong.
We have a "Koala Ambulance" in our area !  Dead serious I am.
From August for a few months the speed limits are 20KLM lower in certain
areas around here from 7PM until 7AM to reduce the death toll on them.
Regards...
