Playing the political game
I clicked on one of those Google ads just now. You know the ones, they're tailored to the search criteria you've entered (or in my case, since I'm using an Opera browser, typed into the address bar). I was looking at the ABC election site.

Anyways, I clicked on this ad saying "play the 2004 oz election game" or something like that. I clicked thinking that it was probably some dodgy site that lists everything in the hope you'd visit them. But no... it's actually a game. You can even download a trial version for free.


I'm waiting for it to download at the moment. I hope it's fun.

And it says you can play any of the four major parties. Yes four. Liberal, Labor, National or Green. Yes that's right, a Canadian computer game company thinks the Greens are a major party. They have three members of parliament! The Nationals probably couldn't be considered a major party either but they at least form part of the government and hold more than three seats (13 in the HoR to be exact).

I wonder how many other things they've got wrong. Watch this space.

Billy Cartoons

Would you like your photo taken with Billy? Simply email me a photo of yourself (leaving enough room for Billy to be inserted). You can make it look like you're hugging him, shaking his hand, whatever. However, what Billy is doing and what he is wearing will ultimately be up to me to decide.
