Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Hi Thornbush
Having lived in both Sydney and Melbourne (and also Brisbane, Ballarat and now Launceston), and having lived in Melbourne for 18 years, I can assure you that it isn't boring! In many ways, its much more vibrant than Sydney.

Here's a song by Weird Al that's got my name written all over it:

I have websites, ph.d., chess team, star wars, etc. Even the hybrid prius in the video is like the one I own. :jedi:
