I think Terry Jones has always been my favourite of the Pythons. His documentary about The Crusades was a brilliant mix of absurdist humour and facts (often the facts were absurd too).

I learned this today too. And then spent some time trying to work out how to possibly scam this rule, but those crafty folks at the RBA are waaaay ahead of me.
 
TIL: You can cut an Australian $10 bill in half and each half will be worth $5. You can take either half to a bank and they will exchange it for $5.

More generally, if you have a piece of any Australian note between 20% and 80% of the area, it can be exchanged for that percentage of the note's value. Any less than 20% is worth nothing, and any more than 80% is worth the full value. So next time you are at dinner and everybody has $50 notes, remember, you can literally split the bill.

Is this not true elsewhere?

Friday Night Beers

Mash Brewery Challenger English IPA

No hop aroma at all, and only pretty mild bitterness after a reasonable malt base. Not great, but not outstanding.

So it's a challenger, but didn't win.

If I owned a Delorean, I'd drive it at 88mph all the time.

Friday Night Beer

Founders' All Day Session IPA. This is a bit meh. It's certainly easy enough to drink, and very floral on the first taste, but it fades really quickly to just taste like a middling Pilsener.

Apparently I'm an official AFL coach now. It's a shame this card arrived two weeks after the season finished...

Nice card! I only got a certificate for my level 1 (unless mine's still in the mail 😁)... and yes I think Dougs is right, wonder if I'll get roped in again next year...

mmmmm, looks very tasty. Yeah, I didn't think it would be a BIG MAC.

Friday Night Beers

4 Pines Double Cascadian Dark Ale. This is two beers in one - stick your nose in the glass and you'd swear it was a Cascade heavy IPA, but have a taste and it's a chocolatey Dark malt ale. Finally, the hoppy aftertaste takes you back to the first beer. It's a bit schizophrenic, but very tasty (also very strong at 8.0%).

This library looks even better than:

try {
// Something
} catch (Exception $e) {
header("location: https://stackoverflow.com/search?q=%5Bphp%5D%20".urlencode($e->getMessage()));
}

A very drinkable draught. It comes in hipstery cans, which I still don't think I'm a fan of. Apparently Colonial have opened a second brewery in the old Matilda Bay brewery site in Port Melbourne. I might have to make a visit...

A very dangerous bottle shop - so much great, but expensive, beer!

Uffizi has the best coffee within a large radius. Their food is pretty good too, and the location is great for access to Caulfield Park or to watch one of only five all-way tram intersections in the world.

Any place that offers pork belly on the breakfast menu can't be bad. The food options here are great and their coffee is superb.

We were fortunate to get a last minute booking for Tulum on a Friday night, and it was worth the effort. Every dish we ordered was great. Grilled eggplant with a delicious black sesame tahini, Jerusalem artichokes with artichoke chips and some wonderfully grilled prawns with the chef's mother's special sauce. The coffee roasted olives sounded a bit weird, but the flavours really worked. And the beef cheeks, oh so good. They just fell to pieces on the plate, and came with a wonderful corn and Tulum cheese accompaniment. The wine list was great too, including some Turkish options. The service was a bit haphazard last night, it seemed like maybe someone had called in sick, but the chef came out to greet everyone and ask how the meal was. Overall, the food was great, and for what we ate (and drank) it was great value. Highly recommended!

A gold rush themed park could easily be hokey and lame, but thankfully Sovereign Hill is not. There are tons of activities, many are performed authentically (or at least as far as I can tell) by people who really seem to enjoy what they're doing. My kids really filled in a day, and we went back the next (tip: if you get the desk staff to stamp your entry ticket, you can return the next day for free). My only reservation is that the night time sound and light show isn't that great, particularly for young kids who get alternately bored and then frightened by the effects. But for a place where you can actually pan for, and possibly find, gold, as well as holding a $150k bar of gold in the "Gold Pour" display, it is good fun.
