    The coronavirus conspiracy

    What you're talking about is rational. What we're seeing is people loading up trolleys with months worth. SUVs and "mum vans" packed to the brim with paper. That's the bewilderment. That's what's fucking dumb.

    The coronavirus conspiracy

    IT'S CORONA TIME. It's Corona time right now. My Woolies still has some TP, thank fuck... What's the origin of the "stockpile TP" meme? I never heard advice through the radio to do so... one of those Facebook Mum things perhaps?

    Trump: The third POTUS ever to be Impeached

    "Isn't it pathetic" -- Trump, 2011. Obviously the circumstances are different, but one has to appreciate the irony.

    Trump: The third POTUS ever to be Impeached

    I don't know whether or not a far-right god-fearing population is a preferable alternative. It's swings and roundabouts though, it'll all be different in 20 years.

    The WW3 hyperbole has been pretty good for my first week of 2020... Just look at the TikToks people have made, they're hilarious!!

    NSW / QLD fires

    Even Albo, love or hate Labor, is out there spending his own personal money to make life easier for the firies. TBH I thought some of the earliest bushfire-related criticism of Scummo was perhaps misguided, but as things unfold I'm less and less impressed with our PM and his attitude toward others.

    Can I just take a moment to retract any flippant remarks I may have made over the years about the personal character of Tony Abbott? @Leonid You were right, away from parliament, he's a good guy.

    Trump: The third POTUS ever to be Impeached

    It's not Leo's "theory". Impeachment isn't the whole process of removing a president, just the first step. To compare it to an individual accused of a crime, impeachment is only the equivalent of an indictment, not a conviction and sentencing.

    Do you not think there's at the very least a difference between "Please do this thing that will benefit us both long term" and "Please help me defame and slander my opponent"?

    Trump: The third POTUS ever to be Impeached

    C'mon man, you know what I mean. If somebody did it before, and wasn't impeached over it, then at best it's implicitly OK. This instance is going to a hearing, with a "jury", the result of which will explicitly spell out, in whatever the US Senate's equivalent of Hansard is, that this is OK. I say "jury" because the "jurors" are partisan politicians with a stake in the outcome. It's impossible for this process to be impartial, regardless of your view on the merit or motive of the case.

    Trump: The third POTUS ever to be Impeached

    When the senate acquits him in January, do you think this sets a precedent that it's perfectly OK to financially pressure foreign leaders to further your election campaign? Like, the transcript is black and white.

    I misread the article then (or the article got it backwards). My bad

    Trump: The third POTUS ever to be Impeached

    It's not the pipe dream you might think, many GOP congressmen crossed the floor to indict. Time will tell, I suppose.

    Trump: The third POTUS ever to be Impeached

    It means he won't be convicted of the charges laid out, that requires a 2/3rd majority of the upper house vote. If I understand correctly, the possibility remains that even without the conviction, a simple majority of the senate could prevent him from running for office again.

    Y'all are right, I was just trying to be optimistic.

    Green Room Pics Thread

    Consolidated pics thread. This way, you don't need to create a new thread every time you get a funny cat pic, you can just dump it in here. Rules: 1. Of course, nothing that breaks Atomic's rules, so pics must be work-safe. 2. Animated GIFs are hilarious and awesome. Upload them to your webhosting and rename to .jpg to embed, or just link to them if you CBF doing all that shit. 3. Don't post stupidly high-res table-breaking images. 4. There is a thread for music videos, take that shit to AWAYLT 5. Picture content discussions are effectively derails, take that shit to WOYM. 6. Hilarious punch lines are not derails. Deliver them swiftly for max enjoyment. 7. A cat is always funny

    Vowel deeds are afoot in modern Strayan

    When they entered the Japanese market (in their pre-video-games era), they obviously pronounced it the way it looked to them: セガ (seh gah), and since the Japanese created Sonic and a lot of their first party content, Americans would continue to say seh-gah, or say-gah. Australia had a longer weaning period on to Sega, the Master System was waaayyyy more popular here than in the US, so we "grew up" without the pronunciation key given by the famous Mega Drive splash screen. Hence See-gah. Funny story though... from actual former Sega OziSoft employees: SEGA is short for Service Games, so they joked that maybe we should all be saying "Ser-gah"
  21. Tourism Australia exists, we do in other countries exactly what other countries do here. Golden rule satisfied. </thread>

    Fan arrangement

    Hey all! A few months ago I built my new gaming+streaming rig: i7 9700KF, RTX2080, NVME SSD, all the cool stuff. Well it's meant to be cool stuff, right now it's very toasty stuff. I have a NZXT H510i case, a Corsair H80i v2 AIO cooler, and 2x 120mm fans, all arranged like this (not to scale obviously, arrows indicate airflow direction): At idle and during most tasks, the system is on the warm side but OK. Fire up something demanding like CODMW with RTX enabled and the GPU gets extremely hot, close to 90 degrees. I know the air inside the case is hot too, as when I take the side off there's a gust of hot air like opening an oven. Now, I know I should add some more fans, but I'd like some input on where, and how they should be oriented. Any help? Dasa? XD

    NSW / QLD fires

    Heard on the Facetards that RFS firefighters in QLD or NSW were having their fuel cards bounce, and having to buy diesel out of their own pockets, can anybody confirm or deny? I'm imagining that if anything, it's just a "system down" type situation, rather than anything malicious or clerical.
