Fu#$ you would have to be stoked to have that land in your back yard. Looks like it needs a bit of scrubbing though. Your own personal high ball from the safety of your own back yard, fantastic.

Even better if it landed on your drive way and you couldn't get to work because of it = )

Thats F#@king cool, would love to know how they move and dispose of that, it's not like they can just push it of the side of the road with the ute!

Looks like the perfect excuse to drag out the explosives to me! Sad to ruin such a nice boulder though....

I'm pretty sure I saw some footage on the news last night of it being blasted. Such a shame. Fu#$ing wild storms over there though huh, what with the floods, mudslides and all.

In LA at the moment. It hasn't really been that wild - they just don't understand the concept of drainage.

Not used to getting a week or two of rain. The place just fills up and things start to slide away.

And I thought I was going to sunny baywatch country. Thought I'd drive around with the top down and beach boys blairing..... :)

Kim and I trundled a big boulder at Lugano in suburban Sydney, about the size of a mini, and it kept going 200m down through the bush and landed on the road (near the lugano slabs) where cars used to wait for the old ferry. fortunately there were no cars there at the time and the boulder blocked the road for 2 days.

Sounds like respossible bouldering? he he he, if only you could have trained it to roll all the way back to your back yard.

Looks like that big yellow crane is winding up to take a swing at it - pinball flipper style

imagine rounding the bend with your Brittany CD on full bore and seeing that in your path. Brilliant.
