#1196348 Same-sex postal survey is a go

Posted by chrisg on 24 September 2017 - 01:38 PM

...Not pleasant, but to get back to topic we've so far had six survey forms appear in the mail, people who never updated their enrollment details I suppose.

 

I just took them back to the post office, as tempting as it was to use to boost the Yes vote.

 

It's a ridiculous debacle, could have been done on-line for a fraction of the cost and a lot less inconvenience.

 

Cheers

OH GOD SHE CALLED BACK!

 

"I'm not on the Internet"

I'm sure you are, can you google anything?

"Irrelevant, when I open email, it just keeps coming up"

What is it? and how does it come up?

"The Outlook"

Well yes, Outlook is supposed to come up

"Yes but it keeps coming up"

OK? That's good?

"I don't want it to"

But you want email?

"Yes, but I don't want to keep having to Outlook"

 

What she means is that the password prompt is coming up.

And she doesn't know what her email address is.

5 years..... manager level..... doesn't know how our company email works..... (first name dot last name)

 

I told her this is taking too long, and I needed a bathroom break, so I'll call her back, and hung up.

Went and pooped out of frustration.

 

and now here I am.

Good lord... I would not be employed for long at this place.

 

Is there something wrong with Queenslanders?

 

:)

 

Probably... spent a lot of time around them and count several as very good friends, but I tend to think the sun and or XXXX get to their brains :)

 

Cheers

Somewhere around there I'd expect Mac.

 

Personally I don't think it is any business of politicians and a complete and utter waste of money, spoken as a total heterosexual :)

#1195044 how crap is this government ?

Posted by chrisg on 18 August 2017 - 01:14 PM

Another?

A few days ago Xenophon made the dodgy citizenship news when there was some possibility he may be a Greek or Cypriot given he had parents from those countries. He did write to those countries for clarification but never heard back.

Well he forgot that Cyprus was a British colony until 1960 and it appears the records show that when his father came out to Australia it was as a British citizen.

Xenophon hasn't, until now, checked to see if he was a British citizen.

Let's see what the Brits say...

:)

 

The Brits are going to say what on earth are you mad colonials on about ? The husband of the Queen holds several nationalities, so by extension does Prince Charles - its all a load of bullshit and the constitution needs to be changed.

 

Cheers

What Rybags said !!

Being W.A. where I live is set to become a massive producer/exporter of lithium I ought to be happy but the current technology does bother me a bit :)

Pretty sure they're Lithium polymer type similar to recent Macbooks.

About the highest energy density you can get but not cheap.

 

Also, seems just about whatever consumer L-ion battery pack you buy at retail, it comes to at least double the cost of the 18650s contained inside it.

:)

 

Yeah that makes sense Ry, not too sure I'd want to be riding a bike powered by one of those given their occasionally explosive nature but Outcast is no stranger to electric bikes :)

 

Cheers




#1193342 New car time (also, ow)

Posted by chrisg on 14 July 2017 - 06:22 PM

:)

 

 CVs are a pain in the butt, but maybe they are better now, I went through a period where several mates had Minis, it was about a once a month chore spread across them :)

 

Any excuse for a few beers will do :)

 

Cheers




#1193005 What's on your mind?

Posted by chrisg on 01 July 2017 - 02:36 PM

 

Came home from work in the early hours to discover some arsewipe had smashed my daughters passenger window and ripped out her cheapo dashcam.

Stupid bastard even left the power lead behind.

 

£302 for a new window all for a (now) useless £40 dashcam

maybe they didn't need the power lead ;P such a stupid waste of your time and money ... All cars should be fitted with bullet /shatter proof windows. ... that automatically pop out when the car has been in a road accident ... and yes the vehicle is smart enough to register the diff between a road accident and a stupid tosser thief.

 

:) would be nice but the equivalent in bulletproof would run around $3k - multiply that out by the number of windows in a typical car, screens are more...

 

Sorry to hear it Outcast, we had a spate of those around here a couple of years ago, over 100 in one night, my wife and stepson included.

 

Cheers




#1192856 how crap is this government ?

Posted by chrisg on 28 June 2017 - 02:59 AM

If I remember correctly, the moronic Labor government lowered the ratio from 1 worker per 7 kids to 1 per 5 when they were in power, thereby increasing costs all round.

Really, if a grownup can't control 7 under fives, they shouldn't be in the industry.

:)

 

There speaks a single man.... 7 under 5 ? Pass the chair and whip please :)

 

Cheers

Keith is pickled - before the Stones became really famous we lived on the same street in London and used to drink at the same pub on the corner.

 

I like a drink but he used to put scotch away at about the same rate as I did Guinness and he'd still walk home without a stumble :)

 

Dunno about the drugs - not my scene, but I'm unconvinced he was ever straight but could always hold a lucid conversation :)

 

Cheers

When are you going to write a memoir? (not at all sarcastic by the way)

Just got this about an hour ago. I am a 70% man, well, used to be. After one bite of this my mouth was filled bitter insipidity, the smoothest condensed soil ever eaten.

 

Waste not! I manned up and finished the square I had broken off, and no sooner it was gone I was bringing a square of old faithful 70% to my mouth. YUCK!! What is this? Dark chocolate molasses?

 

Has 90% now forever spoiled my palate? How did it do so.. so quickly? Do I have to eat this always from now on?

 

:)

 

One of these days I guess - been thinking of it but not sure where to start :)

 

70% is about as high as we go, saw that 90% the other day, I don't think so :)

 

Cheers




#1192347 "The Australia Tax" on electronics...

Posted by chrisg on 09 June 2017 - 12:51 PM

:)

 

I was offered extended warranty on a bloody stab mixer the other day - thing cost $35, same brand as my last one that lasted over 20 years...

 

We had a little "discussion" and suddenly it was $30 and no further mention of extended warranty...

 

It's retail and apart from staples not much is selling, they are getting desperate as we move into an automated society with far fewer jobs around.

 

Cheers

Me thinks this recall isn't gonna work, people will keep their bottles!

 
Whee!  That ain't gin - that's moonshine!

2 in 1 deal I say

 

:)

 

I fail to see the problem but then again I do enjoy a G&T, less gin more tonic and the bottle will last longer :)

 

Cheers




#1191239 So far so good...

Do what I did Mac, catch glandular fever - lost 15kgs in about six months, it reached the point where my doc wrote me a "Script except it wasn't for the pharmacy it was for me, a shopping list... Interesting sense of humour has my doc :)

 

(BTW, I was not overweight in the first place :) )
