    oculus rift!

    Hey all! long time no chats :) Not sure if i put this topic in the right forum, i thought for awhile but since this topic could go into Audio & Display,Portable & Mobile Tech,Gaming,Photography & Video,Design & Coding and Tech Talk i thought id just dump it here. So as yall may know, https://www.oculus.com/en-us/rift/ has released their flagship VR device and i dont know what to do! its expensive, requires a super computer and looks awesome Theres alot of hype about it but how much should we be buying into? its not beneath me to upgrade my rig to support it but will i ragret it? Whats are your thoughts on this on any level? is it for gaming? is the video amazing ? is it well designed? is it a fad? sorry for all the questions but this annoucment hit me right in the max power computing. Happy new years BTW!

    how crap is this government ?

    Dont be singling out specific religous schools,its discrimintory and agenda driven. All Religous schools who peddle false history about magic spells and super powers fall under the same banner, a secular country should not use tax payers money to fund children being taught fairy tails. i.e. The Malek Fahd Islamic School has accused the state government of breaching racial discrimination laws in ordering it to repay $8.5 million in taxpayer funding. The school, which educates about 2500 Muslim students in Sydney's south-west, is refusing to pay back the financial assistance it received between 2010 and 2011, three years after the NSW Minister for Education, Adrian Piccoli, declared that it had been unlawfully operating for profit. http://www.smh.com.au/national/education/islamic-school-refuses-to-repay-millions-to-department-of-education-20151014-gk8rrs.html
  3. now all we need is young kim to browse our forums and read this haha NK is no threat, they have nothing on the Saudi terror kings
  4. Click bait topic title aside. Has anyone brought stock in European markets before? There's a good investment opportunity in Germany at the moment. Pfefferspray (Pepper spray) is selling in very large volumes due to the new mass scale crime waves against women and very little police protection. It doesn't look like it will slow down anytime soon. Google trends shows Pfefferspray searches growing at an unprecedented rate, never seen before in this country. https://www.google.com.au/trends/explore#q=Pfefferspray "security discount Germany " seems to be a popular distributor for self defence products and probably a good investment. I invested through the Frankfurt stock exchange on commsec last year and have had a return of nearly 33% They will probably find a political solution in a few months so now is a good opportunity to capitalise in a rapid growing market. I used to get into a lot of arguments with people about the dangers of letting in large amounts of young single Islamic men from the middle east and North Africa. But it was futile and got me branded racist. I try not to engage in that conversation anymore, it's easier to just bet money on the outcome. Seriously tho, FWB is the exchange, just buy into any company who makes or distributes self defence weapons, the police even came out and said they are stretched too thin to protect their women. A whole nation is going to buy protection. #politicFail #socialexperiment
  5. I think I read from some refugee agency that of the 1.1million migrants 82% are young single males. The problem isn't refugees, it's an absolutely ridiculous gender disparity and only a small amount of children. All the women and children are left in the war zones to be taken captive. It's a real shame, but it's no surprise
  6. They have enough police resources to violently shut down any protests about lawlessness, but not enough to protect people at major train stations

    But hey, let's vote for them anyway, I'm sure they can serve society with much more efficiency and honesty..... I actually dont see anything wrong with having a party on one of our ships, its not like they are doing anything else important. All political parties who favour our defence force should be allowed to have parties on the ships, with the blessings of the Navy of course (which they got in form of vouchers)

    World War 3

    It doesnt help that we are all allied with the major bad guys behind this whole mess. Saudi Arbia are the bad guys we are looking for.. to bad they are American friends and we cant do anything. Im balls deep in the war machine atm, every year it gets more dodgy. The cause is a lie, everyone is a mercenary. Saudis are terror kings.

    oculus rift!

    a VR headset or specifically this model of oculus rift? i tried some samsung one which was a solid 6/10. Did feel the motion sickness tho which im worried the rift may induce It was about six months ago, so it was probably an Oculus DK2 Do you know if that had the same system requirements as the rift? the GFX needed to run the rift is pretty high end, i was even wondering if its worth waiting for 1 more gen of gfx to be released yeah usually thats a good idea, ive read conflicting reports as to how buggy it is tho. There doesnt seem to be that big a selection of media for it atm either. I just really really want it now but haha. but dont want to get over excited and have my first impressions ruined by bugs

Is playing on VR what i should be spending my life on.... i kinda think so haha. waiting for a few very indepth reviews might be worth it. But is this rift Gen1? they have made heaps of attempts at VR in the past. All shit, but this one seems to be "the one" Has anyone seen any places giving demo's of the equipment? im looking at buying a radeon R9 390x atm . im interested in playing starwars battlefront in 4k too oh technology, i love you :)

    The housing bubble

    So im sure everyone knows that our country is one of the most expensive countries in the world to buy a house. Every time there’s a big house on the water or something for sale theres always mention of a very large interest from overseas buyers. Now when you look at what the current Chinese pres Xi has been doing with corruption its pretty out in the open now that lots of big Chinese businessmen are putting their embezzled money into the Aus property market. So we have a situation where our property is worth ridiculous amounts of money but so many of these properties are not even owned by Australian nationals or even living here. The real estates market doesn’t care, they get a cut of it. But what about the rest of us that don’t have access to big business to embezzle money of our own? I’m not gonna pretend like I really know how all this works, but could our govt tackle this situation by saying. "To own a house and land in this country, you have to be Australian." ? Then give all the corrupt international businessmen some time to either get residency or sell. Everyone always says how we are a rich country and what not. But how many of us actually own a home? It’s a fairly humble achievement to have but its actually rare in this day and age. I have no debt, im well paid, single with no kids. I cant afford to buy in my home city. Dat shit cray

    nah i dont think its that. All Sharia countries control their people through fear and intimidation. Standard practice

    #BoycottBali

    They are saying there is "technical" issues with the delay of the execution.. Only indonesia would experience technical difficulties loading bullets into rifles lol I've heard quite a few people saying "oh we shouldnt say anything about indo, they are bigger then us and could beat us in war". Anyone else heard comments along the lines of this? Indo would never make it to Australia

    Sarcasm. Is it ever warranted.

Me: Nah man, i heard they where good, lets try one *Finish beer at pub* (its not my round, i try to get his attention for more beer) So whats this beer you where talking about? ive been waiting for it my whole life. Ya know ive never tried one hurry up

    The housing bubble

    The law requires all Australian businesses to have at least one director and one secretary to be residents. However, in my opinion, this is can be manipulated by foreign cultures with insular business ethics. so to go back to what you said before 4. It seems with this point you've concluded that foreign investment is the problem, without actually looking into the details. I'm not sure this is a logical or defendable position to take. Now that we know the details are purchase property through dodgy registered business, does that change the logic on the position? This is the first time im impressed with the work Joe Hockey is doing. They should make a very, very expensive fine for the oligarchs who use this loophole to sieze our land

    The housing bubble

    very interesting timed article on news.com today (sorry for the source lol) "THE Federal Government will consider laying criminal charges against one of China’s richest men after finding that his company had illegally bought the harbourside mansion Villa Del Mare last year for $39 million. Treasurer Joe Hockey yesterday gave the company owned by 55-year-old Hong Kong property developer Hui Ka Yan, 90 days to sell the Point Piper mansion or face having it repossessed by the Commonwealth Department of Public Prosecutions. Forbes lists Dr Hui as the 15th wealthiest person in China." "It is understood that agents for the sale, from Christie’s International and LJ Hooker Double Bay, have been interviewed by Treasury investigators. The agents have defended the sale, claiming they believed it was an Australian company they were dealing with." " The divestment order is the first legal notice handed out in six years under foreign investment rules governing residential property. But Treasurer Joe Hockey warned there were more to come, following last week’s ­announcement that the government planned to increase penalties for illegal foreign purchases, and impose fees on the legal purchase of new dwellings by foreigners." http://www.news.com.au/national/nsw-act/foreign-investment-crackdown-chinese-billionaire-hui-ka-yans-purchase-of-point-piper-mansion-is-illegal/story-fnii5s3x-1227247018678 Few interesting points to take out of this ; real estate agent thought it was an Australian company buying the house, so the loop hole to buy our property is to do it through an Aus business. This is the first time in 6 years the govt has made an action on these ppl inflating our market . So Tastywheat was spot on with the laws, But the issue lays with how easy it is to register a business in Australia and buy property through that. Had This sale not been such a land mark sale with its crazy price, it wouldnt have been flagged as sus. Now a statistic that wont be as easy to find with google. How many "Australian" business are infact owned by chinese billionaires who use the buisness as a front to to make purchases with their oligarch money?

    Sarcasm. Is it ever warranted.

    Aussies are very sarcasitic by nature, just in general chit chat not even trying to be funny or witty Its pissing down rain *nice weather* drink a really nasty beer *how good is this beer* (usually a trick to get someone else to taste its shit) a really fat guy *gday slim* really skinny guy *Mr man mountain* When im travelling and talking to other cultures, without even knowing i use so much sarcasm its hard to understand whats real or not. Sometimes when people have an issue with too much sarcasm my fav responce is "ok, il change my personality just for you then".

    The housing bubble

    Tastywheat, I have done abit of research.. but its usually whatever sensationalised article is posted on news.com about over seas people buying really awesome property in my local area. I think the bottom line, whatever the reason. Is I cant afford to buy in Sydney :( Its sad cuz i grew up here and dont want to leave. I guess the other option is to do what ChrisG is doing and just continue to rent. actually... Im gonna buy a fukn lotto ticket on the way home. That will fix it!

    The housing bubble

    its not restricted to new development. e.g multi million dollar mosman mansion for sale "Selling agent Megan Thomas was tight-lipped about the sale but said the property had already attracted significant interest, particularly from overseas buyers, since being listed less than a week ago." http://www.news.com.au/finance/real-estate/billionaire-gina-rinehart-relists-daughter-hope-welkers-former-mosman-home-for-5m/story-fnd91nhy-1227244826281 About the mining boom and wages. How come other countries with a high minimum wage dont have this untenable issue in their cities? I know there is cheap housing in the sticks in this country. Im mainly coming from the angle that i was born and raised in sydney, now i cant afford to live here outside of the rental market even tho i earn reasonable coin. Half a million will get you a appartment all the way out in rockdale! How much of sydneys property is owned by foriegn people, then leased out to Australians to rent? I really belive our govts should stop over seas buyers from growing our bubble
  25. See this is the bit that totally boggles my mind. The US has been doing the same thing for decades with the same result every time. The so called allies/freedom fighters/counter insurgents/anti-communists/whatever the fuck they want to call them this week, turn around and bite them on the arse, hard. They just don't seem to learn or don't want to learn. It worked with south Korea. Worked very well. Thats all I can think of tho Which part? The splitting of the country in two or the Korean war as the basis for M.A.S.H. ? Both haha. Instead of 1 shit country, its half good half shit. I'd like to thank south korea for samsung!!
