Watch out, Australia! New Zealand's invading... Can't Post

...really, really slowly.

Marlborough's Cape Campbell has moved 18 centimetres closer to Australia since the earthquake on August 16.
The 6.6 magnitude earthquake was described by Crown research institute GNS Science as "more concentrated" than the July 19 and 21 quakes. The July quakes moved the district 5cm to the east.
The August quake reversed that, moving parts of the district back to the west.

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

18 cm! [In reply to] Can't Post

I hope that's not too fast for the Ents to get out of the way. Shocked


They that go down to the sea in ships, that do business in great waters; These see the works of the Lord, and his wonders in the deep.

Does a cursory acquantance with [In reply to] Can't Post

South African English help at all, or is that a whole 'nother animal? (Resists the temptation to speak in Tom Sawyer-ese.")

Those are fascinating and a little scary (but I still don't know what any body is really saying! BlushCrazySmile).

4) "Ta[-ta?]"

5) "Chur [sure?] cuz [cousin?]"
