    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...

    It started with Ben and a great idea Probably after a wine or a beer He started a mag and a forum for all That’s when it started and its been a ball There was Mael, virt, grams and more Since day one watching door Keeping out spammers, wankers and bots And more than a few, actually lots Flouncys baby started to grow Thousands of members we got to know Some young, some old, some crazies too But all entertaining for me and for you Along with moz, chaos, morris and others We had dads, mums, sisters and brothers All types came to watch and learn As atomic grew and and we all took a turn To make the mag and site our own We punched the keyboards or even our phones The topics were wide and there were heaps We laughed and joked, complained and we weeped We saw people leave throwing ted out of bed Only to come back and start a new thread We have others that leave without a fuss But always come back because they miss us So although much quieter than we once knew Atomic still lives because of people like you Its still a place we all remember and love It seems to fit us all like a glove I’m proud to have been a part of this place Its special, its different, it is in your face It was there every time we wanted to vent We wonder were the last 18 years went Lots has changed but some stay the same Still a place where you look for a name Be it Leo or scruffy , rybags or nic Every one here is here for the kicks So please feel free to add your own verse You can type it nicely or you can curse Remembering your time with the laughs and the fears The place called atomic that’s been here for years.

    omm ... now ... early next week Walt has a cataract sorted. Now he's been remarkably patient whilst the vaseline glass he looks through steadily becomes more opaque . the worst of it over the last few years till present. One of the comments we've been getting is curiosity as to his reaction to how I will look to him ... so anyway tonight he asks me if I'm bothered , and then assures me that he will try not to throw up ...ffs ... I told him if he threw up he'd be able to see it to fucking clean it up

    I know this is an old thread, but it was bugging me too that I couldn't remember what show this was, that my searching for it brought me to your thread. So as I had nothing better to do this evening, I've just spent a good hour going through lists of old TV shows, and was about to give up, but then found it! It's "Professor Poopsnagle's Steam Zeppelin". To quote from Wikipedia "The golden salamanders had been buried long ago to indicate where each mineral could be found. After the first one was found, the cryptogram on it would lead the children and the doctor to the next one. What they had to do in each case was to decipher the cryptogram on each salamander." https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Professor_Poopsnagle's_Steam_Zeppelin Now just to find somewhere that streams the episodes!

    Such is the problem with laws that individuals are distinct entities and can be totally seperate from corporate ones which in turn can be seperate from other corporate ones. Such that a person can commit an utter cuntact and be untouchable. The thing with minor parties and independents is that they can promise the earth, be as populist as they want because even if they got 100% of the contested vote in their electorate/s they'd still be incapable of delivering their promises. As such, they can tell you they'll give you a duck that shits gold and there'll be no shortage of believers.

    The thread that that wouldn't die, on the forum that wouldn't die, answers the question that couldn't be answered, by someone out on the intartubes, who 10 years and 2 days later signs up and posts the answer. If this doesn't prove the feasibility of " Infinite Improbability Drive" nothing will. ?Is it !Atomic! .. !Yes Sir! .. It's very Atomic! ................................................................. By the way putting Professor Poopsnagle's Steam Zeppelin into Google produces strange edcuation based results... methinks there is a problem with Google's brownian motion generator. A fresh cup of tea might sort it. Anways Hello and welcome to the Atomic Forums Kel

    So, it's nothing like the Snowy Mountains Scheme - despite the name. I did not know that before, but somehow I am failing to be surprised. I've reached the point that if anyone in government announced Sunlight 2.0, I'd expect a packet of darkness. You're assuming they have some sort of self-awareness.

    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

    ocau sucked me in again my first ever set of in ear monitors (a nod to the headfi thread i stole the pic from : https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/tin-hifi-t3.23570/reviews ) i am somewhat awe struck at the sound such little things can deliver, especially using my altoids tin cmoy amp from the same forum (like the ones here : http://www.lucidlaboratories.com/shop-1/cmoy-headphone-amplifier ) all those plus the pan am tube amp were impulse buys that have been worth every dollar spent, especially at the immense discount used gear gives

    first dog nails it yet again i agree with other analysis that too much detail of potential change loses a winnable election, just like john hewson's "fightback" self goal; even dutton quoted "this is the sweetest victory of them all" with a nod to keating, and probably identified the similarity never underestimate the attraction of greed and "safety" over benefits to an entire nation my guess is that when the global recession hits any time soon, the libs will be unhappy that it's not possible to complain that "it's all labor's fault" not saying that the labor team would have any more hope of averting world financial disaster, but for the less privileged waiting for something to trickle down, it's unlikely they'll get anything that hasn't been filtered through wealthy kidneys hey! a little more time to fuck things up will make the prospect of a labor government with a suitably charismatic leader with no disturbingly fair policies a shoo in for the next democratic sausage fest

    well bestiality and necrophilia ... mmm you never going to get consent from the former and the latter are dead. I'd say those committing those acts are in need of help and guidance perhaps. A couple married / or not have sex with no actual payment crossing their palms ... a prostitute has sex and payment is paid. Both experiences leave someone fulfilled and ready to carry on their life ... that's quite fine by me

    Pretty sure that doesn't mean pun intended; it's for when you quote an error and need to make it clear it's the quotee's error and not yours.

    I'm of the opinion that nobody in a position of authority has any right to financial privacy - at least not from oversight positions. Whether that's IAD, the IRS, congress, or whatever, if your office is likely to be bribed, then any oversight body has to be able to see your records on demand. No dicking about in court giving you time to shift you ill-gotten gains to a better hiding space - right fucking now will do just fine. Yes, that's a bit heavy-handed, but I really don't see any alternative if you want to keep your authority figures accountable. And if they don't aren't prepared to be transparent in that regard, then maybe they're in the wrong job.

    Have seen that particular one before. I wonder when the rot set in over there. It's here too, though not to that extent (Wittenoom does not count). --- And now for something completely different:

    leo, you see "business" from the bubble of a niche supplier in i.t. i have a similarly luxurious gig in a boutique general practice where "bulk bill" is a non-event, although "zero gap" at my discretion is a personal choice for patients who are on hard times but have previously paid like everyone else and are my professional responsibility the difference seems to be that i have also done enough time in the public system, where even in this well heeled (and well healed) locale there are people who are screwed by the liberal protocols, and who have tony abbott to stand up for them, meaning they have no representation people like you and me will do well under (and even despite) a labor government because we have the flexibility and intelligence and chutzpah to make it happen as much as i appreciate that people generally vote for self interest, i tend to consider adverse affects of therapies, rather than the 1% cure rate if i apply a serious poison to a sick recipient the liberals are medicine for the 1%

    He is Trump Lite in a way. But, he likes to sit in the comfortable space between the two major parties, and cherry pick the policies of both.

    And the current jokers haven't? All I hear from the LNP side is how fantastic it is to have a budget surplus, the first in 12 years apparently, while conveniently ignoring the fact that for the previous 6 years they have been in government. So does that mean the LNP where useless before now or is it only bad when the ALP has a deficit. Also how much of this wonderful surplus is because they have deferred spending to the next budget, or cut or delayed other projects just to cook the current books?
