Freedom of speech or antagonism for the sake of it?

    Speech is the vocalised form of human communication.
    Vocalised: 1. To produce with the voice.
    2. To give voice to; articulate: vocalize popular sentiment.

    A parade (also called march or marchpast) is a procession of people, usually organized along a street, often in costume, and often accompanied by marching bands, floats or sometimes large balloons.


    You can clearly see the difference between speech and action, surely? Or are you saying that as they're both forms of communication they're the same thing?

    I believe they're both lumped under "Freedom of Expression" ...

    We don't actually have a 'Bill of Rights' here in Australia. So many Aussies think they have the right to freedom of speech, etc...
    But actually we don't. To many American movies for some kiddies growing up me thinks. Sadly a survey of high school students in 2005 showed that 1 in 10 thought that 911 was our emergency number for police, fire and ambulence.
    Allthough we have a constitution, we have no actual 'Bill of Rights' , just laws, endless piles and piles of laws...

    I really don't see the need for people to censor certain words or ideas. The idea of censorship is more dangerous than the things it is trying to stamp out. Why do people want to control the way I express myself or anyone? I mean, our ability to express ourselves the way we personally desire to on an individual basis is one of the fundamental things that make us human.

    Hey, if I ever win the lottery, I am paying for a trip to Bondi Beach and then we can spar with the guy who wanted a sparring partner after a few big beers and shrimps in the barbie....Honestly, I have met some really cool people here and would love to meet you guys!

    Cool, but here we call them prawns, Paul Hogans tourism add used shrimps so as to appeal to the American market. And you might wanna put them on the barbie, not in it:p
    Knit picking I know....

    Heh!!

    Actually I've never been to Australia. But I live in Los Angeles and a lot of Australians come out here on vacation or are ex-Pats living here in the industry. There was a married couple in the industry that I befriended because they used to come to LA every 3-4 for months or so and would always come to drink at the bar that I was always at. They had money and had a place on Gold Beach and were always inviting me to come out and stay with them (and one of the selling points was how much Aussie women love American men). I am married now, but one of my regrets is that I never took them up on the offer back when I was single.

    But fair is fair, and it is pretty clear that an Australian accent gets you pretty far in Los Angeles with American women, lol.

    Aussies know nothing about BBQ. If you want REAL BBQ, you need to go to the American South!

    :p

    This demands a cook off. Trade in your gi's for a cooking apron, and put down the fighting sticks in place of a pair of tongs.

    LETS GO! MEET ME IN THE PARKING LOT NOW!!
