  1. Helmets - Should we have to wear them

    Do you also jump in the car and not put the seat belt on cos you're only going down the milk bar and it's not very far?
  2. No one that's commented on here has actually done IM Austria but they're recommending all these other races. The 70.3 WC held at Zell am See is ~200k's away from where IM Austria held so not necessarily representative either. Go with the race that appeals the most - Austria as a holiday destination I can comment on having been there lots of times in summer and winter and I think it's great.
  3. The Politics Thread

    And I also hear we're moving the State Capital from Brisbane to Mt Isa to keep those North QLD folks happy.
  4. The Politics Thread

    But were they all born in QLD and, if not, renounced their allegiance to other States (especially NSW)??

  6. The Politics Thread

    So how long does it take to count a bunch of votes in QLD?? How hard can it really be? If ALP doesn't get a clear majority in its own right will it decline government? And it's only 2yrs 10 months until the next election here so whoever gets in will spend that time just trying to ensure they get elected again rather than doing something.
  7. Rugby Union, what's happened to Oz?

    I'd guess that league wouldn't be far off numbers wise to union in England - it's just that it's seen as the working class game and played in the Northern part of the country. In that sense you don't read of too many ex league players going into stockbroking at the end of their careers but would think they can make a living out of it. As someone who literally hasn't played a minute of any kind of rugby (grew up in a football school) I like watching the good league matches but can't stand union for the level of disjointedness and playing advantage for a ridiculous amount of time.
