well so far im finding it a good read , some real funny bits, also quite proud of the fact that i may have the only copy in the u.k because im a lucky bastard, well done to you guys that did it, im glad i managed to get a copy, when i found out it had been released in oz, i rushed down to the local book shop to enquire if they had it in stock or if they had a u.k release date, the no help arse wipe behind the counter just looked at me like id broke into fluent swaheli, anyway thanks to wedgie for getting me 1 and i didnt even have to ask for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :supz:

Hey I liked their style, total lack of any real planning or organisation, reminds me of when I used to go on camping trips:-

Equipment list:
1 x Holden Kingswood HK with 186s donk and full tank of gas
1 x Tin baked beans (giant economy size for superior farts, heated on manifold)
1 x Loaf sliced bread, (day 1 sandwich, day two toasted on manifold, day three frisbies)
1 x pack of butter
1 x slab of brown liquid (cheapest available)
1 x Pair cool shades
1 x screwdriver (for opening tin of beans)
1 x comb (for grooming, doubles as butter knife, grooming easier after used as butter knife)

Hang elbow out window and drive in the general direction of beach, any beach

Those were the days :drinkers:

The website wasn't mentioned as far as I recall but that is maybe because they used up most of the pages talking about beer. LOL :drinkers:

Finally got the book in too. Was quite dissapointed not to see a mention of our website.. Since they used this website to source alot of members and stuff i think it would of been only fair to put on the last page something like links etc.. for people who heard about the piazza for the first time know where to go to get more info and meet the people..

More than half a brain?

Anyone with half a brain would probably search the web for Piazza and hence find this site.
Besides Chris, if you want the price of Piazzas to increase as a result of PiazzaSearch, it's better people don't not see this site (else they'll see that Piazzas are worth more to Gemini owners...)

Better late than never I say. My copy arrived today. Goes to show new copies are still available, 4 years down the track. After some searching I found ABC Shop (online) were able to get one for me. The order was placed about a month ago though.

That would have been my 'plan B' m8. I actually wanted to see if it was still available. Besides it gave me a good reason to bump this subject topic from circa 2007 Stone Henge days. LOL :yawinkle:
