"There are three kinds of climbers at Arapiles; orange haired dung punchers with fake american accents, skinny punks who fall of 26's all day, and the good blokes like us who drink a six pack of piss then go climbing." -Gerry Narkowicz from an article in Screamer about a hundred years ago.

After watching myself lead a climb then lower to the ground, a tourist approaches me and asks are you finished or just starting? then asked whats harder going up or down?, I looked at him puzzled wondering if he was taking the piss

I see your hoon and raise you: I was driving along 6th St the other day and saw the world's oldest ho chuck a brown eye. My childlike innocence has been irrevocably destroyed. :-(

I just love the 'chuck a brown eye' turn of phrase. As if you throw it in some way, or aggresively point it at some one. Awesome.

It was pointed at the Win News camera, but it didn't make the evening's bulletin.

A mate and I were coming out of the surf at Phillip Island, ankle deep in the water with our boards under our arms and dripping wet. A passing dude asks "Been surfing?"

~> a legitimate question!
I saw a couple of blokes once at Bells Beach wax up their boards, go down to the surf , dive in/get wet, come back up to the cars and proceed to tell passers by how awesome it was; ... all while I looked on in disbelief while eating a late breaky due to having been out in the better waves happening all morning...
