That was Jesus. Actually that was house not Island which is from Matthew 7:26.

But in Revelation 6:14 it says "The sky was receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from it's place".

Maybe Sandy Is. was something biblical.

Sandy was there but got pissed off at never being visited by the cruising fraternity. Moved to the Atlantic and blew the crap out of NY in retaliation for the years of neglect.

Re: South Pacific Island discovered......to not exist!

I think the "white flag" comment was intended as humor, even Robin Williams makes jokes along those lines about the French and no one could accuse him of being an idiot.

The problem may be that no Frenchman has ever heard of Robin Williams...

Re: South Pacific Island discovered......to not exist!

Thread drift, the best humour in this life is laughing at ourselves and the stuff we do, life is way too short to take the offensive, way too many battles that way.

John Cleese is a master at it, he taught the world but then again his time with Python was hilarious.

We all need to lighten up methinks!

Cheers

The British rip the French off, the French joke about the Engleesh the Irish cop it from all sides but they also rip the Poms off.

The Aussies rip everyone off including themselves whilst the Americans don't get it?

LOL Just kidding!
