Them's lead em dem hills. 🤔
Sydney residents and experts alike have been saying for at least the last 5 years that there are high levels of lead in the regions soil.
One of the worst areas tested was, you guessed it, Balmain.
This fallout is from decades of lead use in house paint and petrol additives that settle in the soil.
It just so happens that housing in the inner city areas of LLeichhardt and Stanmore has more old houses with leaded paint than any other district.
Children are at a greater risks because they play in the dirt and can injest this dangerous substance.
Major side effects include brain disorders, memory loss and lack of concentration.

Now we know why all you Dudes on the Balmain side of Our JV love Leichhardt Oval so much, and it's not even an oval :D
Get Our Team out to Campbelltown asap. There's no lead in the soil at Campbelltown International Stadium.
There's not even lead in the pencils out there ;) :ROFLMAO:

Not surprising.Yanks are fairly dense they think that the standard of the shit they can sell in the USA is wanted by the rest of the world.Starbucks and Krispy Kremes tried the same here with the same result
Only ever had 1 Krispy Kreme on 2 occassions and have no intention of going back for a 3rd bite.
Overpriced rubbish imo.

I have only ever eaten one and i threw it away after 2 bites as the sugar content was over the roof.Starbucks make the most awful coffee i have ever tasted and like Krispy Kreme i could not get through it.Seriously i am not health conscious and would be overweight but if i ate those products i would be ashamed of myself.

Yeah, i don't know magpie1963 and many people could say the same things about the other U.S food franchises (did somebody say KFC?) or is it that they used to taste a lot better in the old days? and it's worth remembering that in 2003, the person who introduced Krispy Kreme doughnuts to Aust. was Neil Whittaker.

Neil Whittaker (Balmain 1979-1985)
hooker and club captain


Whittaker, now is a very successful businessman and he was a key player in ending the Super League war, who then became the CEO of ARL in 1997 and then took the CEO position of the NRL the following year when it was formed.

Wouldn't it be nice now to remove those crooks at the NRL HQ and replace them with people like Neil or even Wayne Pearce?

Paul Sironen used to be a sales rep for Krispy Kreme too
