    Now that's innovation. I love the raised engine cover - it looks like a drawing from a "how things work" book.

    Pop History #5. The Leyland Brothers.

    Mike and Mal Leyland were a couple of ordinary Australian blokes who became national icons through their popular TV show. They'd load up a couple of cars with their wives and kids, go on vacation to some remote part of Australia and make a documentary about it, then narrate the resulting footage on TV. In 1976 they kicked off their weekly show, "Ask The Leyland Brothers", where viewers could write in and nominate various destinations for the brothers to visit. The show ran until 1980, then again from 1983 to 1984. Mike and Mal were a hit with the Australian audience due to their unassuming charm and easygoing manner, and their show gave the public glimpses of parts of the outback which few had ever seen.

    When Mike Leyland died in 2009, his family received thousands of condolence cards from all over Australia, and many from expats overseas.

    I can't think of anywhere better to post this. Hopefully most of the inventorphiles, steam punk lovers and fantasists who live here are familiar with Georges Méliès.
    But anyway... theatrical performance and music hall, stage magic, Jules Verne, Victorian innovation and the newly-invented science of the cinematograph unite in one of the finest science fiction films ever made.

    And for those in Australia, is this true?

    @Lemon Laser Betty - Melbourne is famous for its changeable weather. You can get flash storms like that in most of Australia's cities, though.

    Fuxake. It is 4th of April and only NOW am I noticing a new month's thread, despite pondering the lack of activity in March 2011 every time I look for new stuff. I do it at the start of every month, too.

    If anyone finds a piece about brain upgrades (experimental or not), please post as a matter of urgency. Thanks.

    Yours, living up to my name, one day at a time.
