    Mr Zhou- a cool award

    I love the ocean. Diving, Swimming and long distance running all rock. A 160 km trek get my cool vote today

    "Taiwan says it is investigating whether a man from mainland China managed to cross the highly militarised Taiwan Strait in a small rubber dinghy.


    The Chinese man, 33, told police he crossed the 100-mile (160km) stretch in search of "freedom and democracy".



    "

    Its on BBC news. A 2.6 metre rubber boat is seaworthy yet the navigation, fuel required and a few other minor issues crossed my mind
    I have often checked a slow trip in my boat to Tassie via a few island hops. I could do it IF the nice water and weather was right.

    Suspect I will do it Mr Zhou is very cool in my view.

    Once a year honest I hate pokkies despite finding it very interesting watching people who clearly do not love them but are addicts perhaps.

    Reminds me of that old George Formby song. Cleaning Windows...... "Oh Mr Zou what can you do? Mr Zou is a window cleaner now. The voyage, it didn't pay, so there are no yellow dingies down Limehouse way etc etc"

    It wasn't an accusation that you were a 'dict but a suggestion for post ANZAC Day.

    Fortune cookies weren't invented in China but rather San Francisco, the origin is a bit disputed some say originally Japanese, but Chinese restaurants popularised them the way we know them today.

    My Heart Will Go On

    What robots listen to- "Robots lift 44-pound car roofs of dark tinted glass, apply aerospace-strength glue and press them into place. Waist-high robots glide across the gray concrete floor, carrying instrument panels while playing an instrumental version of Celine Dion’s “My Heart Will Go On.” (The robots came programmed that way, company officials explained.)"
