Time to clear some of the backlog... below
you'll find mail that you guy's have sent me over the last month
or two... maybe longer in some cases... either way it's probably
a good idea to keep that in mind - some of them refer to stuff thats
been posted on the site as far back back as December or were relevant
when the Tsunami thing happened or whatever. You guys's will figure
it out I'm sure...
Subject: Triple J's Off My List Too
Just noticed you mentioned you dont listen
to Triple J anymore. I've gone off it to, but I must admit
at night it becomes an entirely different station. When
the sun goes down they seem to concentrate on the music

great station until they got hijacked by the 'Tim and Debbie
hello orsm, you used the word pedantic
in your latest update. as per 99% of the uneducated, you
used it incorrectly. it does not mean fussy or neurotic.
it means showing one's superior knowledge for the sake of
it. this email is pedantic.
(p.s. if you feel the need
to join the gang, referring to my lack of capital letters
would certainly qualify you as pedantic. anyways - great site,
your writing is as entertaining the pics/videos. keep it up.)

Orsm, That video of the japanese

Explanation of Laura
Bush’s hand gesture in your latest RS pictures.
She is using the “hook em horns” sign in the
support of the University of Texas football team playing
in the Rose Bowl. George Bush was Governor of Texas and
resided in Austin, Texas home of the University of Texas.
Subject: rs pic
Hi Mr ORSM. Just for information for
whoever or wherever the
picture of President Bush and the First Lady came from.
Her hand is'nt a wave. It's a sign for the College football
team meaning Hook em' Horns. Not too unlike the I Love You
sign in Hawaii.
Subject: Ain't feedback a bitch...
Yo O, And u thought u may have gotten
someone blasting u in this email, lol...? The feedback is
that the site's good, and I personally like the small updates
you've been doing since you got back... hopefully that means
a lot more time for you, but I somehow doubt it.
What I thought of instead was
to offer up an idea... I may be the only one, but I like reading
what you've been up to since the last update (how Big Brotherish...),
but what I thought would be cool is if perhaps there were
some more Q and A series...you know, the time when your friend
asked you some questions and you responded to em... well I
know there's the Orsm forums and all, but how about if some
of the users who come to the site got to ask you a few questions
this time...? Might make things a bit interesting... anyway,
just an idea... site's mad anyway. Hopefully you'll be lucky
enough to catch a one day international match at the WACA,
as they certainly are a fun time if you've never been to one...
counting the people who get thrown out of the ground is a
great game itself...Ciao O.
Fire some questions
my way and I will see if I can answer them... -Orsm

Mr. Orsm, You have, without a doubt,
the coolest web site of ALL TIME! The girls in the pic are

Dear ORSM, Going through your Christmas
update I came across the following [clip]
in one of your "hidden" links. Now this reads
as Rodney Rude - Hey Santa Claus, and upon listening this
ain't Rodney Rude. Furthermore, as a good, proud WA boy,
how could you get it so wrong, and not give credit to the
correct artist, another great West Australian, Kevin Bloody
Wilson. KBW has a wonderful Christmas album full of Xmas
ditties, and I recommend that everyone should have a copy.

Hey Orsm, Could you be so kind as to
inform the guy who took the picture
of ducks in a tree... that ducks head for trees when
gators hit the pond!!!! I know what I'm talking 'bout, I've
seen it happen hundreds of time. I lived Fla. for over 10
years. Ducks and gators don't share a pond.
Subject: Deluxe Ocean Liner Pics
Good evening Mr. Orsm. I have been browsing
your site for a while now. I haven't had a reason to write
before now, but seeing the pics
that you posted in your most recent update made me write.
I have been on that ship, or
it's twin ship. The ship you posted cruises the coast of Alaska,
and it's sister cruises the Caribbean, called Adventure of
the Seas. They are the largest ships on water in the world,
or at least that is what Royal Carribean, the cruise line
that owns them says.
They are huge ships and the
pictures that you posted don't even begin to show it. There
is an onboard gym, not that many people ever used it. There
is a walking path around the outside near the pools. I believe
that they said it was a quarter of a mile around, and that
only covers the front half of the ship. There is a rock climbing
wall, a tennis court, and many other "features."
There is a full theatre where they tape their onboard entertainment
to show on their onboard channel. I have pics, but I don't
know where they are at the moment. If I can find them, I will
send them on to you.
Thanks for the great site.
I check it out weekly, if not more often than that.

The cloud formation pics sent in by Steve got
a pretty big response. I remember the day it happened quite well
- rain came out of nowhere and it was humid as hell...

Hey Orsm, Can i ask are we sure tho cloud
formations are Genuine? and not some bored pubescent

they were any chance of posing this question on your next

Subject: Clouds over Armadale 20050203
Hi Orsm, Steve sent in some terrific
photographs of Mammato
clouds over Armadale. These are not often seen - only
when there is a big thunder cloud around. Clouds normally
form when air rises, and as it cools the water vapour turns
into water droplets when the temperature gets below the
dew point. So most clouds are flattish on the bottom but
lumpy on top. In a big thunder head cloud there are very
violent updraughts and also cold downdraughts - these are
the beasts that occasionally cause air crashes by pushing
the aircraft into the ground. That's what causes the protuberances
below the base of the cloud. And Mammato means, er, well,......
tits. Who said meteorology was dull! The photos are very
good indeed, lit from the side by a setting sun I imagine.
The Oz met office might like them.
Incidentally, in your Coolpix
section there is a fine thunder cloud of great vertical extent
with the typical anvil head. This happens when the rising
air reaches the tropopause and can't rise any further. The
latin nale for the cloud at the top is the best tongue-twister
in the list - Cirrus Spissatus Cumulonimbo-genitus. All that
means is "High, Thick cloud from a thunder storm".
Great Site. Keep it up. It's
not true what they say about you - you're a genius.
Gidday, Notice that you have some pics
of some interesting
clouds on your site this week and the guy did not know
what they were called. The proper meteorological term is
Cumulus Mammatus. It is a harmless sub type of storm cloud,
that generally forms after a major storm has passed. It
is formed when air in the cloud begins to descend relative
to the other air within it.
It is often mistaken for a precursor
to Tornadoes or other "BAD" phenomena, but from
all accounts is harmless, just a bit of turbulence and down
drafts for pilots and passengers of aircraft. Hope this
helps! and as everyone else says, love your site!
Subject: Weird Clouds
Dont have anything real interesting to
say and I dont think anyone will care, but to answer Steve
on what type of clouds he snapped the pictures of, they
are called Mammatus
clouds. The clouds are rare and usually form when clouds
from a very large cumulonimbus cloud, AKA Thunder cloud,
begin to descend. The clouds are also a sign that the worse
of the weather has passed. Just thought I would share a
little of my useless weather knowledge. By the way, awesome

As the son of a weather forcaster for
over 50 years, here in the US, I can truthfully say that
those are mammatus
clouds named such as they resemble mammary glands. Not
that uncommon, but certainly nice to look at.
Subject: Mammaries? Udders? Breasts? No . . . Clouds
Orsm Clouds! In your latest update, you
have an email from Steve who enclosed 7 pictures of clouds.
He didn't know what to call them. Anyone visiting this site
would have little trouble thinking immediately of mammary
appendages and they would be perfectly correct. The proper
name for these clouds is Cumulonimbus

Subject: Political Correctness
Thought I would be good over the break
but couldn't let this go. Seems "Political Correctness"
has finally come around and bitten them on the bum. Who,
you ask, why our good mates the Yanks. "Christmas"
a word held dear by most Christians is not being used in
America for fear of offending people of different faiths,
its "have a Happy Holiday" , "Holiday Sales"
etc.etc. Imagine Xmas Carols without the offending word,
and what about Christians its got that word in it and Christening,
The mind boggles, GET A LIFE PEOPLE. Are the other religions
going to stop using their words to describe their beliefs
because they may offend someone, I think not. You may have
one of the most powerful countries in the world but if your
combined IQ was dynamite you couldn't blow the skin off
a rice pudding. Bloody scary for the rest of us mere mortals
and to those I say I hope you had a very merry CHRISTMAS
Happy New Year to Orsm and all the orsmites
out there. Couldn't agree with you more, Tsunamied to the
eyeballs and beyond. I feel for the people who have suffered
but the feeding frenzy shown by the world media is out of
control. Its as though a starving mob has been thrown a
bit of crust which they will fight over until every last
morsel has been devoured, masticated, regurgitated and devoured
again ad infinitum, or in this case ad nausium. Let it go,
let the volunteers do their work and the survivors have
some dignity in their grief.

fill them in and put them aside, dont seal them. 2nd- Start
an account with the local bottle shop and deposit $10.00

There is a company in Sweden called Locum
AB, which owns and manages Nursing homes and other medical
buildings. Locum decided to place an ad to celebrate Christmas
and the New Year. The copywriter at the ad agency suggested,
"Why not replace the "o" in Locum with a heart.
You know, all sort of cuddly and all?" The coolest thing
was the comment from Locum's boss when the papers interviewed
him about the mistake. "Ah, well. These things happen.
And if it helps to fill our maternity wards we don't mind."
