Subj:     Cattle Trains In Australia (S803d)

 (See 'Road Train Trucks' in Truck-Bus)

 A road train or roadtrain is a trucking concept used
 in remote areas of Argentina, Australia, Mexico, the
 United States and Canada to move freight efficiently.
 The term "road train" is most often used in Australia.
 In the U.S. and Canada the terms "triples," "turnpike
 doubles" and "Rocky Mountain doubles" are commonly
 used for longer combination vehicles (LCVs).  A road
 train consists of a relatively conventional tractor
 unit, but instead of pulling one trailer or semi-
 trailer, a road train pulls two, or more, of them.

 Cattle trains consist of large numbers of trucks, each
 pulling three, double-deck trailers full of cattle
 traveling across Australia together.

Subj:     Australian Gun Control (S436b)
          From: jbcary1on 5/31/2005

 (See 'Anti-Gun Control Statistics' in Hunting-Camping)

 WARNING -  This is a news article and NOT a joke.

 From: Ed Chenel, A police officer in Australia
 Hi friends, I thought you all would like to see the real
 figures from Down Under.  It has now been 12 months since gun
 owners in Australia were forced by a new law to surrender
 640,381 personal firearms to be destroyed by our own government,
 a program costing Australia taxpayers more than $500 million

 The first year results are now in: Australia-wide, homicides
 are up 3.2 percent, Australia-wide, assaults are up 8.6 percent;
 Australia-wide, armed robberies are up 44 percent (yes, 44
 percent)!  In the state of Victoria alone, Homicides with
 firearms are now up 300 percent.  (Note that while the law-
 abiding citizens turned them in, the criminals did not and
 criminals still possess their guns!

 While figures over the previous 25 years showed a steady
 decrease in armed robbery with firearms, this has changed
 drastically upward in the past 12 months, since the criminals
 now are guaranteed that their prey is unarmed.  There has also
 been a dramatic increase in break-ins and assaults of the

 Australian politicians are at a loss to explain how public
 safety has decreased, after such monumental effort and expense
 was expended in "successfully ridding Australian society of
 guns."  You won't see this on the Canadian evening news or hear
 your Member of Parliament disseminating this information.

 The Australian experience proves it.  Guns in the hands of
 honest citizens save lives and property and, yes, gun-control
 laws affect only the law-abiding citizens.  Take note Canadians,
 before it's too late!

Subj:     Tourist Shocked In Australia (S432b)
          From: darrell94590 on 5/6/2005

 A tourist arrived in Australia, hired a car and set off for
 the outback. On his way he saw a bloke having sex with a
 sheep.  Deeply horrified, he pulled up at the nearest pub
 and ordered a straight Scotch.

 Just as he was about to throw it back, he saw a bloke with
 one leg masturbating furiously at the bar.

 "What the hell?!" the tourist cried, "What the hell's going
 on here?  I've been here one hour and I've seen a bloke
 shagging a sheep, and now some bloke's wanking himself off
 in the bar!"

 "Fair dinkum, mate," the bartender told him, "You can't expect
 a man with only one leg to catch a sheep."

Subj:     Sean Connery Has Sex Three Times (S352b)
          From: LABLaughs.com on 10/28/2003

 Sean Connery was interviewed by Michael Parkinson,
 and bragged that despite his 72 years of age, he could
 still have sex three times a night. Kylie Minogue, who
 was also a guest, looked intrigued. After the show,
 Kyle said, "Sean, if I am not being too forward, I'd
 love to have sex with an older man.  Let's go back to
 my place."

 So they go back to her place and have great sex.
 Afterwards, Sean says, "If you think that was good,
 let me sleep for half an hour, and we can have even
 better sex. But while I'm sleeping, hold my balls
 in your left hand and my dick in your right hand."
 Kylie looks a bit perplexed, but says, "Okay".
 He sleeps for half an hour, awakens, and they have
 even better sex. Then Sean says, "Kylie, that was
 wonderful. But if you let me sleep for an hour,
 we can have the best sex yet. But again, hold my
 balls in your left hand, and my Dick in your right
 hand." Kylie is now used to the routine and
 complies. The results are mind blowing.

 Once it's all over, and the cigarettes are lit,
 Kylie asks "Sean, tell me, does my holding your
 balls in my left hand and your dick in my right
 stimulate you while you're sleeping?" Sean
 replies, "No, but the last time I slept with a
 slut from Melbourne, she stole my wallet."
