Welcome to the new home of the Yobbo. Please bear with me for the next couple of days as I attempt to make the layout less crappy.

Re-learning CSS after using tables for so long is going to take some time, but I’m sure this place will be a work of art in no time at all.

For those who haven’t seen my old site, you can check it out here.

I don’t think this makes a whole lot of sense:

THE Balinese Government will forbid any “inappropriate” rebuilding on the site of the Sari Club and Paddy’s bar, the scene of so much death and anguish last October.

Bali’s deputy governor, I Gusti Bagus Alit Putra, said his Government would work with the municipal authorities to prevent the owners rebuilding the nightclubs.

It is my understanding that part of the reason Paddy’s Bar and the Sari Club were bombed is because of the distaste on part of radical Islamists for drinking and debauchery in general (Along with, of course, the chance to kill a lot of Westerners). They see Bali as a kind of modern Sodom and wanted to send a message.

What better way to commemorate those who lost their lives by rebuilding the places bigger and better than before?

If it were up to me, I’d build the biggest, shiniest, seediest nightclub the world has ever seen in it’s place. The people who died in Bali were there for drinking and good times!

Just as they will rebuild the World Trade Centre with a new, improved version of the same, let’s send a message to those responsible that our way of life will continue despite their violence.

Those who died in Bali would be remembered by future generations of Australians visiting the pub built in their memory, and continuing a tradition that someone tried to destroy.
