But guess what, lost 2 kgs in 5 days. Well on the way.

Is that 'Well on the way' or 'Well, on the way'?

May not affect me as much as previously might have, as my latest diet doesn’t recommend Banana smoothies.

I’ve also jettisoned bananas from my diet, Red. But not for weight loss reasons. I have it on good authority that mozzies won’t feast on one if one refrains from eating bananas. I’ve not indulged for over a week, yet last night I was a 20-course degustation for the [censored]ers just while putting my wheelie bin out. So my good authority may not be as good as I thought. 
He’s a fellow-Demonlander so I won’t mention names. However, his initials are @skort😁

I think the mozzies put that out there, to lull the unsuspecting into a position where they can be voraciously attacked.

A tip for you, heat a spoon in boiling water and place on bites, as warm as you can bear the spoon and it will destroy the mozzie fluid injected in their bites.

I’ve not heard this tip before.

I’ll try this tonight. If it doesn’t work, you’ll be immediately added to my list of ppl who give sh!tt advice. But if it does work… thank you!

A mosquito's main methods of detecting and approaching suitable prey include body heat and also, surprisingly, carbon dioxide emissions from breathing.

The obvious solution is to wear a full wetsuit and use snorkel. You'll be in 'Dutch vs the Predator' final battle mode.

A bit inconvenient for most of us but Uncle Bitters can just grab his usual saturday evening finest.

I'm not certain what the mozzies would make of my skin tight figure enhancing latex Goffy.

are you suggesting wcw should......

a. paint herself in black and white zebra stripes?

   or

b. she is a cow?

I guess logically it goes "if B then A."

Maybe crazy stripes just deter bitey things? There was a fashion in surfing for a while to add all kinds of stripes on boards and wetsuits as a way to confuse sharks.

Then there's all those interwar-era navies that gave it a try, presumably to deter giant octopuses. Octopi. Giantopuses.

I wouldn’t be seen dead in black and white stripes! Nor am I a cow!

However, I bought something that I’ve yet to try but really don’t hold much hope of them working …  mosquito patches. They’re like nicotine patches except they adhere to your clothing and not to your skin, and they don’t help you give up smoking. 😁

I will use one of these patches tomorrow at feeding frenzy time and report my findings here.

You're all welcome.

you should apologise, noone on here is that bad, surely

maybe on your 21st birthday, you could have done it, but once you are all old and grown,    just ask for forgiveness and hate the bstards

I do hope that the Grundy situation bites those guys on the [censored] this year,  Go Dees

I spent 20+ years masquerading as a Carlton supporter. Does that count?

Au contraire 640! It shows an undying devotion to the mighty Dees. Do you realise how hard it is to silently barrack for our beloved Dees whilst wearing your Bruce 11 Doull duffel coat?!?!

    MEANWHILE by Whispering Jack

    … meanwhile, at about the same time that Narrm was putting its feet on the accelerator to obliterate the long-suffering Euro-Yroke combination, I heard someone mention in passing that Kuwarna was leading Waalitj Marawar by a whopping 46 to 1 halfway through the second quarter of their game over in Adelaide. “What is football coming to?” I asked myself.  In front of my eyes, the Demons were smashing it through the midfield, forcing turnovers and getting the footy to their forwards who w

    HEAVEN OR HELL by The Oracle

    Clashes between Melbourne and St Kilda are often described as battles between the forces of heaven and hell. However, based on recent performances, it’s hard to get excited about the forthcoming match between these two sides. It would be fair to say that, at the moment, both of these teams are in the doldrums. The Demons have become the competition’s slow starters while the Saints are not only slow to begin, they’re not doing much of a job finishing off their games either. About the only th

    THE BLOW by Whispering Jack

    Narrm’s finals prospects took a crushing blow after the team’s insipid performance at Optus Stadium against a confident Waaljit Marawar in the first of its Doug Nicholls Round outings for 2024.  I use the description “crushing blow” advisedly because, although the season is not yet at it’s halfway mark, the Demons have now failed abysmally in two of their games against teams currently occupying bottom eight places on the ladder.  The manner in which these losing games were played out w

    HALF FULL by KC from Casey

    It was a case of the Casey Demons going into a game with a glass half full in their match up against the Brisbane Lions at Casey Fields on Saturday. As the list of injured and unavailable AFL and VFL listed players continues to grow and with Melbourne taking all three emergencies to Perth for the weekend on a “just in case” basis, its little brother was always destined to struggle. Casey was left with only eight AFL listed players from who to select their team but only two - an out-of-form
