    State of Origin 2018

    A old horse trainer once told me - They can look good, train good, even warmup good but if they've got no heart in them then they're no good and won't win. Could have been describing too many NSW teams If NSW don't truely believe they can win it then Queensland will cause the upset of the century -Queensland by 1. If they do believe - NSW by 30

    Royal Wedding

    Personally I don't care what shes wearing, whos walking her down the aisle, whos going to be there (or not be there) or whether Prince Phillip will nod off during the ceremony. So in other words I've just realised I should have gone camping this weekend at one of those places where phone reception is non-existent. I'm thinking a Hot Campfire, Cold drinks, good mates and a distinct lack of political correctness would be a much more interesting prospect tonight

    World Expo 88

    Walked past the front gates almost every day on my way to/from uni. Only walked through them a couple of times but otherwise pretty much avoided it if I could. Hated crowds then, still hate crowds now.

    Loan pre approval. Really? Loan

    Possibly true depending on circumstances https://www.homeloanexperts.com.au/credit-score-home-loan/can-pre-approval-affect-credit-score/ https://www.equifax.com/personal/education/credit/score/how-is-credit-score-calculated/ are a couple of good reads.

    Work place politics and millennials

    I once applied for an IT position for a large well known company and they went down the track of insisting that all applicants do an online profiling test that had absolutely nothing to do with IT and everything to do with determining how many little blocks were in a picture. Got about 15 minutes into this test before I pulled the plug. Rang up their HR dept and told them I was withdrawing my application because I refuse to work for any company that felt the need to put their applicants through that before they would even interview them. For some reason they seemed seriously disappointed

    Password Managers

    So the way I'm reading it Lastpass will automatically enter the password and/or other details into the webpage for you? Is that correct?

    I'd be sorry too if I lost a couple of million $$$ because I didn't have the balls to stand up for what I knew was right. And another thing - "Error of Judgement" my arse. The only Error of Judgement here was a complete underestimation of the outrage of the Australian public to a blatant and premeditated attempt to cheat and what that outrage would achieve. They thought they'd only get a slap on the wrist if they got caught and were prepared to accept that. Suddenly they realise its cost them everything they once held dear. I figure we'll only see them in Australian Teams in the future is if we can't win games in their absence. In which case it should then beg the question..."Did we really learn anything from this?"

    Heres a thought How about if the Aussie cricketers did some hard manual labour in the hot sun and pouring rain for stuff all pay and got a few rough callus's on their hands. Serves 2 purposes. They might appreciate the position and benefits that they've got a little bit more and they wouldn't need the sandpaper to rough up the ball.

    Smiths DRS call on the LBW in the last game was an error of judgement. This was a deliberate and planned action to cheat. Pretty amateurish attempt at it too. Boiled lolly anybody?

    I'd suggest this is the 2nd attempt at ball tampering this game by the Aussies so a life ban for Smith, 2 years for the senior leadership team and 2 years for Bancroft + big fines all round would be suitable punishments. Then never select them for any cricket team ever again.

    Journalism and Media is shit

    The days of just telling the facts is long gone. Everything has to be sensationalised and all the media outlets have an agenda. And news.com.au should be fined for false advertising because there ain't a lot of news on there. opinionpiece.com.au would probably be a more appropriate URL.

    The Sharemarket Thread

    Bloke I know is on a drip feed share purchase scheme at Suncorp and reckons he's actually lost money over the past 5 years because they always seem to buy at the high point of the cycle. He reckon right now is a perfect example of whats happening. Suncorp share price has been lowish for the past week and shares are usually issued on the 16th but he's betting they won't be issued till the 20th or 21st when the price has had time to rise by another $1.00-$1.20. Then again, considering the problems they've had today, the share price might drop too. AJ
