In the Fifth Ele­ment, the lit­tle old Thai man who brings lunch con­soles the dis­grun­tled Kor­ben Dal­las (Bruce Willis) that “math­e­mat­i­cal­ly, luck must change” and that his grand­fa­ther used to say: “It nev­er rain every day!”

This wasn’t meant to be tak­en lit­er­al­ly of course, because a weath­er com­ment like that would at odds with places like Mel­bourne. Now, back to my point, if you can call it that… Sure it’s bad that George Dubya is back, stronger and more pow­er­ful than ever… and sure it’s scary that he now must achieve all of his ambi­tions in the next four years (as you know a US Pres­i­dent can serve a max­i­mum of two terms)… and sure it’s unnerv­ing that he can’t pro­nounce ‘nuclear’… Hmmm… wait… maybe we are all doomed.

Nah… I pre­dict­ed the GST would mean the end of civ­i­liza­tion, but instead I end­ed up get­ting a cheap­er telly!
