Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

How to bury a dishwasher

Five years ago, along with a bunch of friends, I buried a dishwasher in my mother's backyard.

Those simple words normally produce a slightly incredulous reaction if I drop them casually into conversation. All the journalistic staples - how? why? where? who? - come flowing out, possibly because many of the people I work with are journalists. I haven't got time to deal with all of them now, but I will provide a core Dishwasher Burying FAQ, which will embellished in the future whenever I feel the urge:

Regardless, the photo at right is evidence for the doubters, who have suspected that the entire story is just so much teenage bravado. It shows me (on the left) and my mate Arthur, filling the dishwasher during a piece of performance art. (I'd rather not talk about the aprons if it's all the same to you.) I'll admit to the slight possibility that the whole thing could have been manipulated in Photoshop, but let's face it, even I'm not that bored.
