Deep in Thought


G'day everyone,
Long time, no entry

Here's what I've been thinking about:

Australian Monopoly
Why Sydney & Bonniedoon are not on the new Australian Monopoly Version and Adelaide takes the top spot. Ok, they decided by voting on the Monopoly website. But still, does anyone except South Australian's agree that this was the right choice?

Domino's Meat Pie Pizza

What had the marketing managers at Domino's been smoking when they came up with this? I had to download the picture because I'm sure that they meant it when they said "for a limited time". This one will linger on in the back of our minds when all traces of its existence have been destroyed, like the "Star Wars Holiday Special"

The evolution of the humble Aussie meat pie has taken a monumental leap in history, with the union of Australia's two biggest pre-game footy food rivals – meat pie and pizza.
Now the traditional Aussie meat pie isn't known for its looks, and neither is Domino’s new meat pie pizza, the result of three months of research and development as the company looked for a distinctly Australian taste. The Meat Pie Pizza comes with beef mince, onions and peas topped with thick pastry and tomato sauce – and apparently it looks about as pretty as a half-gobbled dog's eye. With an estimated 3 million Aussie dollars committed to the launch of the new pizza one has to wonder how arch rivals ‘Pizza Hut’ will respond. Marsupials with the lot anyone?

Peter Popoff's & his not so Miracle Spring Water
I came across this guy while surfing the web. Click Here to find out exactly who this guy is. I know a scam when I smell one. Oh and by the way: Popoff is another word to use when you've eaten too many baked beans. I got my own miracle water - it comes from a tap. The miracle part is that I can actually drink the stuff. Considering the highly toxic qualities Bendigo town water possesses.

Popoff appears on late-night U.S. television as a Pentecostal healing evangelist and also in infomercials. He has promoted his "Miracle Spring Water" as a "point of contact" for divine healing. He has also preached a form of prosperity theology under the slogan "Go into business with God", claiming that God will make "divine transfers" into a viewer's "divine account". One infomercial states, "A divine transfer is a supernatural event. This is not money you're going to make from your job... God is going to supernaturally put money into your account."
Within four weeks of submitting one's address to Popoff's automated phone service, subscribers receive in the mail from Popoff (now calling himself "Prophet Peter Popoff") a three-page essay filled with elaborate biblical language and red-ink imitation handwriting. Instead of the promised "Miracle Water", included is a tiny plastic "Golden Tablet" and a "Miracle Band" (a cardboard bracelet marked simply with "JIREH", Hebrew for "see" but sometimes translated "provide"). Popoff purports that the "Golden Tablet" was made by God and intended to create immense wealth for the subscriber. Popoff then insists that the subscriber wear the "Miracle Band" while posting him a check for $28.30 (related to Exodus 28:30 in some way), in order to receive further instructions on how to use the "Golden Tablet".

Well thats what I think.
Tell me what you're thinking
