    Curly went hunting one day up in The Northern Territory' and bagged three ducks. He put them in the back of his Ute and was about to drive home when he was confronted by a surly Territory game warden who didn't like smart alecs. The warden ordered Curly to show his hunting license, so Curly pulled out a valid Northern Territory license.. The game warden looked at the license, then reached over and picked up one of the ducks, sniffed its bum and said, "This duck ain't from The Territory. This is a Queensland duck. You got a Queensland huntin' license?" Curly reached into his wallet and produced a Queensland license. The game warden looked at it, then reached over and grabbed the second duck, sniffed its bum, and said "This ain't a Queensland duck. This duck's from West Australia. You got a West Australian license?" Curly reached into his wallet and produced a West Australian hunting license. The warden then reached over and picked up the third duck, Sniffed its bum, and said, "This ain't a Western Australian duck. This duck's from South Australia. You got a South Australian Huntin license?" Again Curly reached into his wallet and brought out a South Australian license. The game warden was extremely frustrated at this point, and he yelled at Curly "just where the hell are you from?" Curly smiled turned around, bent over, dropped his pants, and said, "You tell me, you're the expert...

    He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, “My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?” The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say, “We can’t tell you. You’re not a monk.” The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes about his merry way. Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of the same monastery. The monks accept him, feed him, even fix his car. That night, he hears the same strange noise that he had heard years earlier. The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks reply, “We can’t tell you. You’re not a monk.” The man says, “All right, all right. I’m dying to know. If the only way I can find out what that sound was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?” The monks reply, “You must travel the earth and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers, you will become a monk.” The man sets about his task. Forty-five years later, he returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He says, “I have traveled the earth and have found what you have asked for. There are 145,236,284,232 blades of grass and 231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth.” The monks reply, “Congratulations. You are now a monk. We shall now show you the way to the sound.” The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, “The sound is right behind that door.” The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked. He says, “Real funny. May I have the key?” The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone. The man demands the key to the stone door. The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. He demands another key from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is another door, this one made of sapphire. So it went until the man had gone through doors of emerald, silver, topaz, and amethyst. Finally, the monks say, “This is the last key to the last door.” The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the door, turns the knob, and behind that door he is amazed to find the source of that strange sound. But I can’t tell you what it is because you’re not a monk

    I had an htc Trophy on Vodafone at one stage. I found out they gave you more data than anyone else at the time. They never had to back it up because it was near impossible to get it to work long enough in one month to reach the 1gb cap.

    Bar WiFi in a camp ground in Africa where a couple of dozen people were sharing a single 2G GPRS connection (about 64k) But hey, it was free at a camp ground charging about $5US per night - at a time when most accommodation in Australia would charge you $20/night extra for basic internet. And that was the month that my ISP f**ked up their webmail logon screen so that it included a 1MB+ image scaled down to thumbnail size, instead of a nice 10kB image - At least at that time they had a lightweight webpage option - I had a nice discussion with them that webmail is not just for people at home on broadband who don't want to run a mail app, and travelers in distant places need a low bandwidth option. But all was ok because I could still let my S60 symbian phone use pop mail through

    I can honestly say the worst way I've ever connected to the Internet was using the guest WiFi at the Best Western hotel in Hong Kong. My mobile had crappy reception regardless of where in the building I went, and the provided WiFi would just drop my devices randomly. Either the iPhone I had at the time, my MacBook Pro, or my Android tablet, didn't matter, it was just flaky as heck. Obviously my first Internet connection was dialup, it might have even been using a 28.8k modem, but it's not fair to say that's the "worst" because that's all there was at the time. The above experience was in 2015, and I felt it wasn't really acceptable. The WiFi in the McDonald's across the road was better, and free!

    Nothing more crazy than a 56k modem which only ran at 6kps maximum because the copper in the street was pair gained and went down when it rained.

    I'm not going to go into it; my preferences are mine. The tldr of my feelings are that with Liberal holding hands with Palmer, and the horrible leadership spill after leadership spill. AND the religious ideals in one of the least religious countries. AAANNNNDDD the hating of people marrying whom they love.... I'm Genuinely surprised Liberal got back in. Not because of what they stand for as a party, but because of who represents them.

    I'll give you a small piece of advice. If you don't even know what sexuality is, no-one is going to really take your 'opinions' seriously on it.

    Haha, this adventure has just got much more interesting. Just snagged a 2080ti at ridiculously below its market price here GeForce rtx 2080ti So a little background: I’m currently in Taipei, Taiwan (an Aussie expat here) and on their equivalent of eBay (it’s basically a yahoo branded eBay) I just won a bid on a 2080ti for 27,900nt. That’s around $1299 aud, only a little more than I purchased by 2080. Sounded too good to be true, but I’ve just come and gone from the store to pick it up! Installed and it’s working! The great thing about Taiwan is their return policy - the 2080 I bought can also be returned no questions asked within ten days too, so long the box and plastic wrap is all intact. Hopefully nothing goes wrong. Although second hand the 2080ti still has 3 years left on its warranty and a 7 day guarantee from the store I bought it from. Sweet!

    Yet you made comments here; Why are you investing effort into something you're unenthusiastic about? Over the course of multiple days; You couldn't get literally 5 minutes to walk in and tick some boxes? CLEARLY! Don't worry, your 1 vote is not powerful enough to affect a pay grade.

    as opposed to getting tony abbott ? based on that alone, we won the election cool beanz by me a hung lower house would be delicious to watch, but i'll settle for an obstructive senate - given what great negotiators the liberals have historically proven to be, they are going to have to up their game if you are after your tax break

    depopulating the centres (some) is a minor tick boats ? who knows ? certainly not the australian public.... but i'm all for them stopping the planes with equal vigor, and certainly denying squatting rights to wealthy foreign investors tax cuts are not my idea of something to applaud, although i understand that most people who can "afford" rent for their nation resent doing so - tax cuts are the wealthy citizen's equivalent to sit down money, which you so detest in those with no money free trade agreements - hmmm.... if you say so, but i don't a second airport n bumfuckistanopolis without a mandatory rail link ? near the water supply for the sydney basin ? fail ! (or fail x2 if both points are noted) abcc - okay, that's a plus no jab, no pay... vexed issue - if they were really serious they could get community services to remove unvaccinated children from the wealthy anti-vaxxers in byron and the northern beaches, to demonstrate impartial concern for the health of minors, so i'm not entirely convinced of the carrot and stick tradeoff there snowy 2.0 ? bullshit 101 so essentially we are in a agreement - there's a few things there but more of not really a thing

    Spoke to a rusted on Labor voter today. His fear is Albo is just a really nice guy like Beazley. He reckons the only one with the ticker for it is Wong but she’s a Senator so cant become PM.
