    Financial planners

    My two girls got cars as soon as they could. Why, the oldest one (17 at the time) and her then boyfriend got attacked by four dark skinned girls at a Brisbane public train station, no way I was going to let them catch public transport again. They got mobiles for safety reasons as well. The poor boyfriend had been brought up not to hit women so froze not knowing what to do even when the daughter was wrestling on the platform close to the edge with a train coming. True story.

    All they want to do is sell you their product to get commission. Talked to one lately just wanting basic advice and he wanted to sign me up for over 3 grand for stuff I don't need.

    Work stuff ups.

    I did furniture removals for a bit. I got a job moving a fridge, turns out is was for a lady belonging to a bikies club. The fridge wouldn't go up the stair with the door on, as I unbolted the door I heard the inner bolts drop in the inside with no way to get at the. Told the moll I was going to get specialist tools to put the door back on. She knew I was shady but I was shit scared she was going a few of the boys to give me an incentive to get door back on.

    I dropped a $6000 musical organ off a forklift in the early 70s. I panicked and hid the crushed crate behind a bunch of others. Never got found out.

    Australian Music

    Someone will emerge, I was a teen in the late 60s and never thought anyone would replace the Twilights, Loved Ones, Groop etc or the TV shows like the Go Show, Kommotion (Molly Meldrum was a go go dancer dancing to the overseas hits), Bandstand etc.

    The Politics Thread

    Makes me sick to my stomach, I don't know what's worse, BJ's statement on if he's the father or the press for publishing the story. I mean how low and slimy is this going to get?
  9. I've ignored the hype, never watched the shows, couldn't care less. But when I open the news all I see is about one of them is loosing his dick. Seriously, is this a first world issue? And as for the big arsed females, why are they considered attractive? I like my women proportionate ,not with an arse the size of Sydney.

    Short man syndrome.

    Same as blondes are dumb, redheads are angry, asians are greedy, blacks are stupid. You're a fool

    Short man syndrome.

    Depends, does being a female, left handed, black, Muslim, red headed or gay make a difference?
