33:00 – Was SUPPOSED to be discussing our Flinders Ranges trip and my new iPhone, but ended up discussing the cola wars, my dad's much needed holiday with us in Adelaide, having no energy sucks, mistakingly assuming malice instead of stupidity, the sad decline of Vodafone service in Australia, multivitamins and coffee preparation, the Aussie outback is REALLY flat, signing up with Optus, mobile phone prepaid plans are a ripoff, really humbling super old rock, good to be back home, sculling boiling water, phone calls with Elke, and some "realistic" philosophy!

Flinders Ranges trip and iPhone adventures will be released in the coming week. Heaven forbid I actually record what I'm supposed to one day :-).
