    Question Tasmania - Head Count

    Just wanted do a head count of how many Tasmanians may be considering heading up for the 2012 Global Atheist Convention | A Celebration of Reason.

    As the organiser for the Launceston Skeptics, I know that a few of us our thinking of attending.

    You may now proceed with the two-headed comments, because I know everyone has been dying to make them.

    I call foul Jin-Oh. Tasmanians are not allowed to ruin prospective "headcount" jokes by pre-announcing them.

    btw, the seats are sold on buttcount not headcount so Tasmanians will receive the same value for money that the rest of us do.

    Do South Australians count?

    I'm originally from South Australia, not sure if that's a plus or minus.

    I had my second head attached as I got off the plane.

    Hang on, if they have two heads attending they should pay twice or we should only pay half.


    Or something.....

    I will shut up now.

    A definite PLUS there. SA is the hub of the country you can tell by how all those other states try to crowd in around it and share borders just to be close. It is the god given duty of all crow eaters to spread our mission to the other states and raise them to our sacred level

    Your mission to convert the Eastern-States heathen throng is doomed to fail I'm afraid.
    Their vanity is too strong and their modified geocentric model means they'll never stop believing that the Universe revolves around them.

    I can't even recall the last time that SA won the rugby league state of origin.

    Sadly this is more evidence of an eastcoastcentric world, to put it gently there is a whole different world out there if you go more than a few degrees either side of 150°E in Australia. Full of fun, diversity and interesting things -even other sports!!
    Just so you know the guys that intituted SOG for the league did so after attending an oz rules SOG game. So if the your founding fathers can do it maybe you could give it a try

    I've heard of that SOG SAO game you guys play down there. I don't think I have the stomach for it.
