    The latest one was OK, but... WTF with a $500 budget on the old bangers? You don't get much for that, and the challenges were kinda lame. I guess that they were limited seeing that they didn't seem to even have rego. The young bloke is less annoying than before, but still annoying nonetheless. The test track sucks. FFS, why didn't they just come to some arrangement with Eastern Creek Raceway or something?

    Look, here is $10.4b, now go and SPEND IT!

    There's a housing shortage. Partly due to skills shortage in that area... kids just don't want to get their hands dirty, would prefer a comfy office chair. Kinda can't blame them - shitty apprentice wage & conditions for 3 years, they'd make virtually the same money doing Uni or Tafe part time and flipping burgers for the rest of the week.

    15 years jail or pay $720 to charity?

    It's the classic situation of the female either/both thinking they're worthless or deserved it. In Carey's missus' case, possibly a case of that, and her being dependant on him for her supply of drugs.

    Obscene losses

    Cool, it's even got download links for the videos. I've seen it before (redirects) but just thought it might have been one of those countless pages that's either useless or tries to browser-hijack you.

    The bloke's just fucked in the head and has been for years. The GF is probably in the same basket for ever taking him back. Then again, the Cronulla player's GF (forget their names) went to court to try and reverse the order against him. As for "You all blindly believe the media without question"... pretty tall call coming from someone who believes in Planet X.
  6. The old style text was just eMail message headers. The new stuff... dunno, but probably near the same protocols and pathways. The delay would likely be the carriers. Likely that they'd have a FIFO and only bother sending stuff over the 'net when they have bandwidth available. Probably similar deal at the other end. They receive, then pass it on through the mobilly network when it's not under load.

    Wank Airey must have one muthafucker of a guardian angel. He's just made a mockery of the US legal system. If he was to try on the same thing, here or over there, I think they'd put the prick away for a good while.

    Just what we want. More shithole ghetto areas. We have plenty of land. Decentralisation is the key. Got me fucked why everyone wants to base HQ in capital cities.

    If they wanted to stimulate the housing market, then they should make their State buddies remove the Stamp Duties and charges that were suppoed to be gone more than 5 years ago.

    Nah. They probably don't know how to surf the InterThingy anyway.

  12. Massive crock. I bet it was a slimy legal type that pointed out the so-called similarity. And those lowlives will be the only ones to profit from any legal action.

    The Big Brain

    So, all those Pinky and The Brain episodes were unnecessary. Unknown to him, Brain was already well and truly in control of the world.

    noticed a lull

    Just Shoot Me is on TV. Mia has just hired a blonde chick with even bigger tits than hers.

    What's pissing you off today?

    Right now, that stupid puke Tim Bailey doing the weather. This stupid local election. I shit you not, we often get 3-5 political ads in the one break. For the first time ever, I'm tempted to vote informal and just write "Fuck them all!" on the ballot paper. Thank fuck it'll be over by Saturday.

    I am not a happy Wigglytuff

    What about the old employer? Maybe ask if they have a couple of weeks available. Anyhow... typical dickead Public Service. I guess you're screwed unless you have something signed and properly official that states you start on a given date. I know that way back (unsure about now) that if you got a position and someone appealed against it and you won, that you'd get back-payed for whatever $$$ difference in the time you otherwise would have been there. In this instance, looks like you've been poked with a rusty shaft.

    Your list of ignored users.

    I've got a script that sets everyone to "ignored" (takes ages to run), then randomly selects 10% of the Top 200 posters to unignore.

    SAVE me the BS.

    I think the magnetic effects won't do squat. Magnetism decreases into insignificance with distance. This thread has potential, problem is it might just become a stage for anyone who wants to pimp crackpot ideas that they've blindly subscribed to.

    SAVE me the BS.

    We have the planetary alignment happening. Some show or something also said that the planets and sun will also be aligned with the centre of the galaxy at the same time. Can anyone point to somewhere that can confirm/deny this? The spooky thing about it is the Mayan calendar. HTF all those centuries ago were they able to devise a calendar based on the movement of 9 planets, when we supposedly only knew of 7 planets up until about 100 years ago?

    2008 BATHURST 1000

    Good result. Sanity saved by timeshifting. I was able to do other stuff like a quick 30 minute shop, clean up some of the mess from last nights building session, clean up my evaporative cooler and get it going, etc and still catch most of the action. Congrats to Lowdes & Whincup... 3 in a row. Fucken pace car. You just don't get a true indication of the respective skill of the drivers and how well each team (ie the pit crews and people that build the cars) are going when the field gets bunched back together every 15 laps or so. Still, I suppose it's a "necessary evil". A better solution would be to just have a speed limiter like they use in the pits. Have a warning, then have it come on for every car 10 seconds later. Then, it can limit the cars to a specific speed. Then, a 30 second warning, and take the thing off.

    Seperated at birth #3647

    The resemblence is almost uncanny. Very similar interests and values - with Hank, at least. Both provide inane, comical humour. Although one major difference - Peggy is about three times as intelligent.

    Got all excited I did :)

    Actually, the Super Hornet did turn out to be a master stroke by McD-D. At a time when they'd (IMO wrongly) lost the fight to the YF-22, had the rug pulled from the A-12, and had various cost overruns with transports, not to mention their domestic airliners being trounced in most marketplaces, it probably kept the dogs at bay for a good couple of years.

    Just rub the head of your cock on one of her non-stick saucepans.
