    So, life has happened.

    I've been living in Canberra now for 11 years. For the last five years I've also had my own off grid house near Eden, doing the weekly commute has been a real grind and I had planned on moving to the shack in about October this year. This is where life gets in the way. I've gone and fallen in love with a 35 year old redheaded woman from Kentucky, USA. We're engaged to be married in March 2019. Me, the eternal bachelor, getting married again. Hell!

    Neither am I. This chick has been fixed good and proper and if she was going to get pregnant, she'd be pregnant by now. That womb will not support life. Also, congrats on being back in Russia! ? ? Warmer all year round. And yes, she loves the area.

    So, life has happened.

    Yup, and you. I'm not sure how much I'll be around, I'm mostly on Facebook these days. I have a YouTube channel with about 6,200 subscribers these days, that generates some reasonably passive income for me. Driving to and from the shack soaks up about seven hours a week. And then there's Angela. So just how DID I get hooked up with a chick from Kentucky? Well, we've been admins in the same Facebook homesteading (farming, hobby farming, prepping, etc) for close to four years now. Turns out she's had a serious crush on me for most of that time. Earlier this year we started chatting privately every now and then as her abusive marriage continued to get worse. Then, in early April, she let me know she wasn't just flirting for the fun of it and things progressed fairly quickly from there. She had to have carpal tunnel surgery done, which meant two weeks away from work and the farm. She, somewhat jokingly, said that she could afford to go on a cruise, go to Hawaii or go to Australia. Jokingly, I said that, "Australia could be fun". Next thing you know, she's got a ticket booked for Australia and a passport application in. I've had the last three weeks off work as she arrived on the 20th of June and we've been pretty much inseparable since.

    Here to start with. Once she's got permanent residency, then maybe I'll head to Kentucky for a while.

    I've gotta say, I was saddened when I heard about the cancer, Bastard Child was one of the good guys. Vale, old friend!

    Top Gear question.

    Which episode had the off-road buggies in it? All three of the hosts drove different ones in a paddock and fair tore the place up.
  7. For a while there in the public service, I was working with this guy who gave me the total fucking irrits. Anyway, a few weeks ago it all came to a head and I said a few things that on reflection I shouldn't have said. I also did something that I really shouldn't have done and I'm glad that the police haven't been involved at this stage. I mentioned earlier that it's a long weekend here in Canberra. Well, it's an even longer weekend for me, I don't go to work at all next week. Or the week after. Or the week after that. I've still got a job with the APS, but I don't know how long for. Not for very long, is my (rather safe) assumption. In the meantime, I'm going out and getting my security license back. Looks like it's back to checking asses & passes for a living. At least there's no shortage of work for decent security guards here in Canberra. /sigh
  8. And I'm the first to admit it. Australia, where even the poor people have colour televisions. I know some people so poor that they can't even afford Foxtel. ' Get outta here! I call bullshit!

    Shotgun Tasers

    Hardly. Why not?
  11. Over here, we use a machine for that, with one bloke operating it and 100 on the dole queue saying that they can't find work.

    Something I need to get off my chest.

    They can probably help with your depression if you open your mind. Open your mind? Don't you mean wallet? It's pretty ironic that you get around with the tag" The best things in life are free" while promoting scientology. Not as ironic as the first aid officer fucking head-butting a co-worker though!

    It's only a matter of time now. Rememmber to turn safe search off.
  14. Only if you leave your Winnebago at home. And the place you camp doesn't have many useful natural resources. Like hot running water and free wireless broadband.

  16. At the point that you're able to go to sleep under a roof, in warmth, fill your stomach with food, visit the doctor. If these things don't reduce your 'struggle' in life, then why bother with them? Right. So even if they're poor and have a roof, in warmth, with food in their tummy and have access to the doctor, does that then mean that they're no longer poor? It's called cultural conditioning.
  17. I mean, I don't know if the poor of the world are better or worse off than me, either materially or spiritually. I have no spiritual beliefs, so how can they be worse off than me in that regard? I still struggle, materially. So do they. But at what point does their struggle become greater than mine?
  18. How can I answer a question when you can't tell me what the question means? I'm fucked if I know.
  19. Are they worse off than we, spiritually?

    Business groups support nuclear power

    No that's the practice. The theory is that we have a true democracy :) That's the pipe dream.
  21. Define spiritually. I can't.
  22. So poor people don't have the basics of health and comfort? What are the basics of health and comfort?

    Yeah you do. Once every 3/4 years you cast a vote. Like I said, I don't have the power to throw out any politicians. Absolute best case scenario, my vote would affect two politicians at the federal election. But it wouldn't throw them out. LOL. There's the theory again. In practice, in the real world, your vote counts to reducing or increasing the seats of a party in government. In the case that other like-minded Australians feel the same way you do (common good), your vote can either make or break the politician in your electorate and his party as a whole. Yeah, that's the theory.
  24. That's not a bad thing. It's why I give the odd dollar to street beggars here in Australia. It makes them feel good, it makes me feel better.
