    Are Australians Invincible?

    Apparently we are.

    After the Beaconsfield "Miner Miracle" and Mr. Hall over there at Everest, we have a new contender:

    http://www.news.com.au/story/0,10117...-29157,00.html

    Half an hour ago, when I last looked at that link on www.news.com.au, I thought, "How long will it be until they're saying she might be still alive?" Not long, apparently.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.
    - Wilkins Micawber

    Supplement:

    With all the international posters on this forum, I'd better make sure this doesn't look like more Australian horn-tooting. We are also accident-prone cockroaches who could probably survive a nuclear bomb.
