:lol: Excellent! I love that the wiki page also has a demonstration of the "billy grip," which might very well rival the various "kyuusu grips"... :lol:

LOL Futurebird!
My trained tea can eye can help you!! :P bahaha

and yeah, this is how I grew up having my tea with grandpa lol except our can was iron instead of tin/aluminium (aluminium would be dangerous I reckon.. maybe thats why some of us talk so slow :lol: )

Julia Gillard's must have been aluminium :mrgreen:

That 'kelly kettle' thing is also great. Imagine you're camping in Alaska or Norway and want to have a cuppa... :D
