2020 Summit

My brilliant idea for the 2020 Summit, the meeting of Australia's best and brightest minds, has not had any coverage in the press this week, despite the fact that I contacted several individuals and community groups and asked them to consider it. What is my fantastically clever idea? Make standard drink sizes bigger. There is so much hoo-ha at the moment about binge drinking, and how people need to drink less for their health - well if the standard size was bigger, then I am sure most people wouldn't mind nearly as much all of a sudden only being allowed to have two standard drinks a night.

That is an excellent idea, Zosia. I wonder why it wasn't addressed? Someone's not doing their job properly I think.

Standard drinks are FAR too small. Something should be done. Immediately.

Oh and by the way...I have just tagged you. Sorry.

my bestest bestest bestest friend is in Melbourne. he really loves it. he was there...oh...about three months and he had the accent down completely. now that he's been there for 17 months, he doesn't sound remotely american anymore. it's going to be very weird when he gets home! :)
