  1. Wow. Biden didn’t even last 1 day.

  2. Apparently the outgoing president left a letter for Biden in the Oval Office. It has since been published... PS: For those who are not sure, this is not real.

  3. Unfortunately, it seems that there are a lot of people out there whos views shouldn't receive any more oxygen but who still get those views raised up on a regular basis by click-bait media. But just because she may have views that are not necessarily shared with the majority of people doesn't mean that she shouldn't receive an award for works done. Otherwise we get to the stage where we only hand out awards to the PC crowd who demand inclusiveness in everything except for those that don't share their views.

  5. I had a friend take his own life after years of having to live with the constant judgement of something he had no control over. Preaching that you are a creature of sin, have no place in a sport because of how you were wired and that apartheid is good, not sure how those are the qualities we wish to recognise in a person who is by their history and achievement a figure of some influence. How do you know how many young women and people of mixed race have been impacted. The statements are firmly directed against people because of what they are not what they do, based on sexuality and ethni

  15. All those things may be true, but they got to this situation through the intervention, abuse and cruelty of early “Australians”. Yep it’s complicated, it’s like unscrambling an egg, I don’t know the answers, I don’t think anyone really does, but we can’t ignore that white Australia is responsible for most of the systemic issues. Personally we don’t have to feel guilty but that doesn’t mean we ignore it either. It has taken 250 years to get to this state we can’t undo it in a year or even an electoral cycle. Yep it may cost a bit, or a lot but considering all we took from them, (

  18. I don't know how much it will change anything, but regardless, Jan-26 is a bullshit date for a national day - proclamation of British sovereignty of New Holland - I don't understand why people are so invested in it - particularly non-NSW states given they only adopted it in '35. Honestly, it smacks of being just the sort of thing Scotty from marketing would come up with. We do actually have a national date - the day we stopped being a collection of British colonies and became a nation - and I don't know why that's not our national day. For comparison, the USA national day is not the

  19. Skel, a lot going on in your life. Stepping into a lot of change and the unknown in a short space of time is extremely tough. A lot to take in and feel comfortable about. Make sure you smile each day within yourself and with that wonderful partner of yours. Be proud of what you have done and what you are going to do. Stay safe FM PS: If you lose anymore weight, be careful you don't slip down the shower drain !!

  20. While young people may not believe in god, their parents and grandparents might and having people like Margaret in their ear and preaching this stuff can and does lead to young people being ostracised from their families and that can have devastating effects. But yeah the church preaches love.

  21. I follow a number of athletes and cyclists and yet to hand over any coin for anything that they represent, so I have continually struggled to understand the "marketing hype" of followers. It's a measure of interest an athlete or celeb had at a point of time, but i'd be fascinated to see how that truly translates into $ for the company. How many actually unfollow someone after a period of time once you get bored of what they post or say, or do you just skip what appears in the feed. I got a new puppy 2 weeks ago, my daughter created an instagram and already has nearly 1000 followers. No

  22. Your daughter may well have grown up in a household that has no issue with LGBTQI people. She has grown up with self worth and has the strength of mind to see it as the ramblings of a bigoted old woman. But... For someone who has grown up in an atmosphere where LGBTQI peeps are denigrated, to have her spouting these things, and be awarded, would be tough to deal with.

  23. Its just not a great spectator sport, especially long course, so IMO, its nothing to do with racing age groupers. Sam Long might also pull his head in, as no age groupers, = no pros.

  27. If the 95% of voters in safe seats had more than two brains cells to rub together (and this goes for both sides), they would make sure that every seat was a marginal seat so every political party actually did what they said they would do for the seat otherwise they knew they would get the punt at the next election. Had this very discussion with the rather inebriated local member at a friends 30th birthday party some 18 years ago after he hit me up for a donation Said member vigorously defended his achievements (which were few and far between, apart from amassing a sizeable property

  29. I did it part of teams a few times years ago and have done most legs but not done it solo.... i would suggest its different to IM in that with IM you can sort of go into auto pilot and survive.... you would have to concentrate all day with this, not just for the hills, but even to follow the course when alone....for instance, the short mtn bike in my book is the hardest one....cruisy start to it, urban, then it goes upwards and you are carrying the bike up a washaway. The 12 leg Jyndabyne would be worth looking at aswell, agan, can't say from doing solo... the long mtn bike at jyndi whilst en

Best race in Oz I was lucky enough to win and a second in my two attempts (only cause no one any good showed up ) As there was no ultraman Hawaii it was on my list to do this year and I was going to try and be the first to do (and possibly win) on my fatbike boarder closure stops us getting into act by a week unfortunately , I wasn’t happy the solo race is by far the hardest race around , but it’s the best , funest, most enjoyable old school event don’t expect much razzmatazz, but you will get great memories arwsome bragging rights (although no bugger

  31. While I categorically do not agree with her views, I have no problem with her expressing them publicly. Nor do I have a problem with her potential award if she has done something worthy, her archaic views not withstanding In the end, It is better to remain silent and be thought of a fool, then to open you mouth and remove all doubt, so Im more than happy to let people make themselves a fool provided they aren't inciting hatred or violence. A differing opinion on same sex marriage is neither

  34. Bryan, this will be my 32 year. I started with a few mates and continued from there. It’s always good to find a club to align, even if you don’t always train/compete with them. You learn so much, gain confidence and have coaches that help. I am not sure if you have family but the clubs really focus on this. apart from this, pick a small race and train up to the distance. Sprint or enticer. Having a friend or two going eases you a little (well, maybe). Enjoy the journey. FM

  36. I specifically said "when aboriginal people, as a whole, are no longer disadvantaged" - I am not referring to individual people / families. At an individual level it is easy to talk about personal responsibility, however if a whole community are disfunctional, doesn't that community need help? And I would say that yes, to a degree we did force alcohol on the Aboriginal community - I've read about Aboriginal workers being paid in alcohol in the past... And this type of hurt takes time to heal - and it can only heal if we take to time to listen and try to help... How many times does i

  38. It's not about making you feel guilty - it's about properly acknowledging what was done to the Aboriginal people of this land and acknowledging the deep seated pain that this has caused and is still causing. Once it is properly acknowledged, we can start working on the major disadvantage that most Aboriginal people live with.
