Scientists in Russia have come up with a theory as to why this thread became unstickied earlier. Citing seismic data from various points around the world, the Russian geophysicists have calculated that a global geologic event occurred around 12.15am (local time) with an epicentre located somewhere in the bayside of Melbourne.

The seismic event was witnessed by several startled locals. Restaurant patron Brick Skithouse was having a late night meal with his partner when they noticed the arrival of G-Train. "He sat at the table directly beside ours." said Skithouse. "He ordered a cow, medium rare and began to drink from kegs provided by the bar staff. He was ripping the tops off them with his bare teeth, he then drained the contents of each keg and chucked the empties over his shoulder."

"The forklift arrived with his dinner," continued Skithouse "and that's when it happened... he had sat down to his meal, he reached out for the salt and pepper, well.." he hesitated before explaining further "the pepper shaker simply wasn't built to take the G-forces he applied and all of a sudden there was this cloud of pepper."

A solemn looking Skithouse continued "The build up was impressive, we all knew he was gonna sneeze...but nothing had prepared us for the blast. I lost my left arm and half my face, my girlfriend is still in critical care and well...you can see what he did to the buildings along the street here."

Another patron lucky to have been on the lee side of the sneeze - explained "now we know why they're called G-forces" he said.

The "G" in G-forces stands for Gehrig
Light travels at the speed of Gehrig
The G train can turn mountains into molehills; literally
When the G train has finished a beer he chews the bottle then spits out marbles
The G train doesn't need a can opener. He just squeezes out the contents

Saints make it 10 in a row with 108 point win

Undefeated St Kilda stretched their AFL winning run to 10 games today, slaughtering Carlton by 108 points at Telstra Dome.

The Saints were unstoppable in their 31.10 (196) to 13.10 (88) victory, with full forward Fraser Gehrig kicking nine goals and Stephen Milne six.

St Kilda's 196-point haul was the highest score of the 2004 season, with the Saints now two wins clear at the top of the table.

St Kilda set up theirs victory with a stunning second term, unleashing one of the best quarters of football in the club's history on the hapless Blues.

With captain Lenny Hayes, Aussie Jones and Nick Dal Santo picking up possessions at will, the Saints kicked 12 goals to Carlton's two as the league leaders opened up an 87-point half-time lead.


They extended that to 97 points at three-quarter time, going on to kick the biggest score against Carlton in history.

Not since the Kangaroos kicked 193 points against the Blues in 1983 have Carlton conceded as many points.

Gehrig kicked five of his nine goals in the opening quarter, playing on a surprise opponent in Carlton's regular full forward Brendan Fevola.

But while Fevola battled manfully without luck to hold Gehrig, coach Denis Pagan abandoned the experiment at the start of the second quarter and sent his leading goalkicker back up front.

Gehrig now has 50 goals for the season and maintains a clear break over his rivals as the league's leading goalkicker this year.

Oh yes!
A most wonderful afternoon at the footy it was!
Man we were damn nice on the eye during that stretch!

That and the first half of 2009 Are the times the Saints have
Been as good as I've ever seen!

I took my sister to that game.
At that stage she had been living overseas for 29 years.
Her last Saints game would have been at Moorabbin in the early seventies I guess.
She could not believe it.
Neither could I.
We both had a wow of a time.

There is a new branch of hypermathmatics, which G-Train, Himself devised. It has applications when describing
n-dimensional universes. G-Train used his formulae to traverse dimensions, whereupon he met himself.

Being a quick judge of character, G-Train assessed the other dimensional aspect of himself and decided that He, the original, was better than the other, but the other guy was cool too.

Our G-Train engaged his transdimensional self in conversation. They had a lot in common but our G-Train spotted a few differences that alerted him to disparities in the dimensions. The new G-Train was undoubtedly a special person in his universe but minor things like he said he'd been hunting recently, were telling. Our G-Train doesn't use that terminology. Hunting implies the possibility of failure. Our G-Train would simply call it killing. It occurred to him too that the new G-Train hadn't discovered transdimensional travel. He postulated that he might be the first G-Train to travel the universes. He'd have to travel to a lot more universes before he could derive enough data to establish if he were the only transdimensional G-Train. So far he hasn't found another.

We may have the very best G-Train in the universe in our dimension.

Leigh Montagna Says That Fraser Gehrig Was The Table Tennis Champion At St Kilda
The G-Train!

So it’s no surprise that St Kilda had a pretty serious table tennis competition back in the day, with a proper bracket set up to find the ultimate champion.

Speaking on his show Dead Set Legends Melbourne this morning with Jay Clark, former Saints star Leigh Montagna said that big forward Fraser “G-Train” Gehrig was the champ, beating off competition from tagger Stephen Baker.
