    Feeling a bit nostalgic/wanderlusty

    What's on your mind?

    Just broke the 10000 word mark on my novella (it seems about a third of the way done). Pretty pleased with that.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    Most recently, these things: I delayed getting on the Bluetooth headphone bandwagon for a long time and stubbornly clung on to my 3.5mms, but after killing like my fifth pair of Momentum in-ears I decided that $299 would be cheaper in the long run. Time will tell.

    Atomic Origins

    High school Digital Media class - would have been around 15 or 16 at the time, which would put it in 2001. I went to school with a couple of guys who browsed the forums and ended up wanting to see what it was they were up to. The rest is history.

    The Atomic era concludes and we were magnificent

    I remember when you reached out to me when I was suffering back in the day (and I never properly thanked you for it I don't think, so believe me, I am thankful). It doesn't surprise me that you've taken that compassion and made a life's purpose out of it. You're good people.

    It's time to spill your guts

    I've done my fair share of both cringing *and* laughing, heh! Personal growth and all that. Thank you though, I appreciate it. It feels pretty good to have a much better perspective about the whole thing.

    I always assumed Virt was just Virt. Didn't seem more complicated than that.

    FWIW (admittedly I was very much an insecure and angry guy at the same time), you definitely seem happier. It's good to see!

    I have oddly mixed feelings on this. Some of my older posts I actually really liked, but man, there were some periods where I was going through an insecure angsty edgelord phase and it showed.

    Yeah, can relate. Didn't lose a marriage over it thankfully but my involvement with the place was getting quite unhealthy. Getting myself banned might have been good for me in that sense.

    Far, far too many. The Great Jafar and Xenu being my most prominent ones. The rest were kind of done on a spur of the moment kind of thing for a particular scenario, and to be honest I kind of got waaaay too carried away in hindsight.

    The Atomic era concludes and we were magnificent

    Found my way on here as a teenage youth more than half a lifetime ago. I have to admit I wondered if atomic would still be here after we all died, it was a tenacious community. Made a lot of friends here, lost a lot of them too, but the ones that I've retained to the current day are some of the best people I've ever known and I would be poorer for not having known them. In that sense I guess I couldn't have found them without being here and owe that to here. I've moved on by and large now, and probably for the best on a personal level, but there were some wonderful memories and people here, and I'll miss 'em. The Manta

    how crap is this government ?

    Maybe I'm a bit of a cynical asshole, but I'm going to laugh really really hard when those jobs get given to robots and 457 visas.

    Probably should have waited until after the election IMO. Most of Australia sees Morrison as a simple oaf rather than the venomous cunt he is, and 'assaulting' oafs never looks good.

    What a joke

    Yes we're talking figurative. Don't arrest me ASIO ;D I think it's the 'no exoneration over obstruction' that merits waiting and seeing. That makes it sound like Orange Joffrey ain't out of the woods just yet. I hope they do make the report public. It's certainly in the public interest.

    The human goonbag seems convinced Australia wants him. It's hilarious.

    What a joke

    That's how I'm taking it right now. There's a lot of stuff going on we aren't privy to, so it's way too early to oil the guillotine *or* squelch all dissent.

    I hope if I ever piss on the graves of fifty innocent people that someone *does* egg me in the head. Maybe it'll undo whatever brain damage I suffered.

    He’ll never have to pay for a beer for the rest of his life.

    There’s a certain angle - and I’ve only seen it maybe two or three times in Pyne’s career - where the man is an absolute dead ringer for Beavis from Beavis and Butthead. It’s still my prime association with him, even if most of the time it’s not there.

    how crap is this government ?

    Gotta admit I never quite knew how to take Pyne. He spent so much of the last six years dithering between fawning bootlick and loose cannon that I can't help but wonder if his whole political career was just one giant troll. Still he did give us a gift, the time he dropped the C-bomb on the House floor was pretty funny.

    This must be humiliating Morrison. Good. Karma's right fist has been headed for that cunt's nose for a long time.

    That could also fit.
