Proof that Weston Creek is the centre of Canberra

March 18th, 2008 at 09:10am

It seems that Stephen has managed to convince himself that Weston Creek is the centre of Canberra, and spent a bit too much time coming up with a theory to prove it.

The theory seems to revolve around the ACT government selling a mis-spelled and possibly discounted and uninhabited version of Gungahlin to the New South Wales government. Based on the fact that Queanbeyan is on the diagram of “important parts of Canberra”, I assume that the theory involves the ACT government purchasing Queanbeyan and turning it in to a suburb of Canberra, possibly as a straight-swap for Gungahlin.

The article is well worth a read, for entertainment value if nothing else.

It reminds me of the endless stream of studies, surveys and theories that get released by various universities, seemingly for the sole purpose of making us all ask “who paid for that, and what substance did they inhale beforehand?”.

    Yeah, Stephen is barking up the wrong tree …. the centre of Canberra is actually Woden. He’s close but not close enough!

    Thanks Samuel 🙂 Always good to see people don’t take me too seriously!

    Got any ideas for my next crazy proof?
