  1. Besides journalists, car and property salespeople and politicians the other low life I detest are call centres: My call is invariably inconsistent with the options menu, I want to speak to a person to get the response I require. No I don't want to go to your website and look at the FAQ I want to speak to someone who's first language is English and isn't reading from a script.
  2. I'm still waiting for my Challenge Series gear

    The ones that don't work in commercial media might be ok, they don't work in advertising

    I hate journalists with a passion; their only job is to devise sensationalist headlines to sell advertising. A journalist therefore works in advertising, with the ethics and morals of the industry. In terms of credibility aren't journalists down the bottom of the pile with salesmen and politicians?
  5. I'm a Queenslander now but spent the first 25 years living in Melbourne and still have 3 sisters living in Wangaratta. I fail to understand how Dan ever got elected to Premier and how he hasn't been shown the door for all the lies he's told. Can any Victorians explain to me? Moreover who signed the order that engaged the private security firm employed to look after the Covid 19 returnees?
  6. That's disgusting. What gives a person the right to do such a thing?
  7. I'm starting to feel the effects of a long lockdown combined with winter. Missing human contact and social activities.

    Are you saying that triathletes are self-centred, irresponsible, selfish etc?

    From Alan Jones: So let me get this straight. Australia's largest triathlon set for the last week of October, the Noosa Triathlon, has been cancelled due to groups of 500 people not being allowed. But one week before that, three hours drive away at The Gabba in Brisbane, the AFL Grand Final will be held with around 30,000 fans in attendance. As Pauline Hanson would say, please explain.

    Not much in the media but apparently figures are through the roof.

    Did I read somewhere that domestic violence has dramatically increased?

    I was thinking along these lines but couldn't articulate as well as this: The Australian: Paying for an epidemic of stupidity (Steve Waterson) We’ve handed control of our lives to a clown car packed with idiots who have wasted billions trying to defeat this virus. They will never admit it was all for nothing. Back in the good old days, the average person used to take pride in having a robust grasp of basic maths: enough mental arithmetic not to be overcharged at the shops, enough skill with pen and paper to make more complex calculations. Not any
  13. Kevvie wil never get the job, the head honchos would have to admit they got it wrong with Siebold first, and just because Kevvie wants the job will be reason enough not to give it to him. Egos first, Courier Mail headlines and correct decision second.

    Coronavirus

    Bloody Brisbane south-siders contagious again; it's time to blow up the gateway and storey bridges, block the cross river tunnels, use the Army to exterminate anyone trying to cross into the golden clean north-side.
