Derives from Australian sheep stations, where men outnumber women by a significant factor.  Competition is thus so high that holding hands between Bruces and Sheilas is not so much a sign of affection as one of ownership.  Even if there were a couple more out in the bush, a wise Bruce would always try to keep a hand on his bird.

A shocking headline in a small town, when it had previously been reported that said man's wife had left him for his best friend!

CHEATERS NEVER PROSPER
"You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait, be quiet still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked, it has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet." - Kafka

...And we're back to those widely-believed myths.  Of course cheaters prosper.  It's why they do it.

To listen to Der Ring des Nibelungen whilst riding a unicycle down a never-ending corridor plastered with motivational posters.

Relaxation of the strict Communist agenda in Beijing has led to a resurgence of the traditional religions.  Around 60% of Chinese are Confucians, with 25% Buddhists, and Moslems and Taoists at 5% each.  However, in such a vast country the Pope still has some three million Roman Catholics to care for, and has found that the best way of reaching them is to post an official letter from the Vatican in as many corner shops as he can.

Leon Trotsky's summation of communism. He of course realised that wishes were not horses because there were never any hoofbeats when he blew out the candles.
