    I am quite surprised you are drowning in it. I know you can drown in two inches of water -- what about less than that?

    When your only two choices for entertainment are Stephanie Meyer and William Falkner, I will truly feel sorry for you.

    Until then.

    Do remember, that St Valantine (the Patron Saint of Australian Schoolgirls) is not the same as the other fellow.

    And Picnic at Hanging Rock was the last great Australian film. Which is something I feel inclined to repeat.

    Yes. The last great Australian film.

    Globalization will first come by media because media breaches borders where luggage cannot. Of course, media is the universal conductor of a mindset; and the outcome of the battle is first determined by the mind.

    Then again, globalization is a different beast than Americanization, though they may pull on the same leash. Perhaps they are two heads of the same beast?

    In written English we strongly prefer British English as opposed to American English

    Seriously??! That was made in 1975. You must really have it in for them. The Road Warrior was made just a few years after that. Let alone 30 years worth of cinema since the both of them. Not even sure where to begin.

    Trust me, Faulkner doesn't write in a language indentifiable as any form of English.

    So Globalization is Americanization, too?

    Wait, that might be true. Al Gore did invent the internet, after all.

    I don't know. Americans use foreign things/ideas/whatever all the time. Maybe the only difference between us and the rest of the world is that we don't care, or, even, know that they're foreign.

    Yes. Picnic At Hanging Rock. The. Last. Great. Australian. Fillum.

    And it takes place on St Valantine's Day, 1900.

    He's The Patron Saint of Quality Lingerie, as noted above.

    Edit: Ms Trombones tells me this is wrong. The Partron Saint of Quailty Lingeries are twofold, she says. St Marx and St Spencer.
