“Although it’s not my normal genre, one of those ubiquitous message boards from the Nelson Bay Church caught my eye today,” says Seppo Ranki of Glenhaven. “It said ‘Adam and Eve were the first not to read Apple’s terms and conditions.'”

Paul Hunt of the Engadine writes: “When George Manojlovic won the first C8 contest for Most Prolific Contributor, the column featured some of his best efforts. One of them concerned the recently deceased film legend Gina Lollobrigida. George was on the same plane when she traveled from Canberra to Sydney many years ago. A baby kept crying and Gina asked the mother if she could rock and cuddle the child. Gina did just that and calmed the baby down. A prankster sitting next to George leaned forward and whispered, “Start crying.” Just a wonderful article.” Very humble of Paul when he didn’t mention missing the gong at a recount that year.

Continuing Bob Phillips’ (C8) taste of gun culture, Avalon Beach’s Ian Norrie recalls, “At the check-in desk at a regional airport in Idaho, there was a sign saying ‘Please unload your guns before boarding.’ Also a smooth flight.”

According to Carole Baxter of Woodgate Beach (Qld), some passengers deserve a bag: “I watched at Perth Airport as a man took my bag and, despite my reputation, kept speeding away, so I chased him (I’m old and unfit). Even when I told him my name was on the bag, he still insisted it was his. I grabbed it and was furious because chasing it meant my granddaughter’s shoe I was waiting for on the carousel (C8) missed and was never seen!” Hopefully she wasn’t still wearing it.

A word to Jack Dikian from Thornleigh’s Judy Jones: “On cordless extension cords (C8) – they’re called batteries.”

Dunmore’s Bryan Hayes cracked the formula: “Like many of my late middle-aged (very late) generation, I have found over a long life that the cost of most things in life doubles every eight years. If you take Carole Dawes’ $570 tuition in 1970 and double it every eight years, in 53 years you’ll find that today’s $45,000 tuition is quite reasonable. Plunge pool or no plunge pool.”

Hello Adrian Connelly! Meri Will from Northmead and Peter Neufeld from Mosman both want to know what a lift (C8) is.
