  1. So all of Australia turned on the TV at 9:20 last night to be told we can't play football in the park or go to your Niece's 1st birthday party (Prime Minister's words not mine). What a fucking joke. 1. Kids are like rats the disease might not have a big effect on them but they can pass it on. 2. Schools are under funded and crowded. Do the math kids shouldn't be at school. 3. why was the first stimulus payment given to the un-employed and pensioners? There was no real change in the cost of living during this situation. That money should have gone to businesses to help pay holiday leave. what should have been said last night. Schools are closed to kids as of now. -Teachers to continue at school for a week to develop remote learning packages -Teachers to continue to get paid during closure to administer remote learning All non-essential shops to close as of now. -Land lords not allowed to charge rent during shut down period -mortgage holders not allowed to charge mortgages or apply interest. to loans. -hairdresser is not an essential business. Non-essential businesses to be encouraged to close down or at least minimize work by subsidizing leave payments. -Land lords not allowed to charge rent during shut down period where business has shut down -mortgage holders not allowed to charge mortgages or apply interest to loans. -social distancing to be built into worksafe laws and made an offence if not applied All loans to be made interest free for the period of the shut down. -Government to cut cash rate to -0.25 for period of shut down meaning banks and lends will be making money anyway Domestic rent to be stopped for period of shut down. Borders closed to everyone (citizen or not) in 7 days -that's enough time for people to gt home if they choose (good luck finding an airline). Business that don't shut down won't be eligible beyond loan/rent as mentioned above for assistance if COV19 appears in any part of their work force and they have to shut down later.

    Aussie Government blow it (Again)

    My favorite a few months ago was when Qld announced they had found Covid in Townsville Sewerage then two days later a Townsville resident flys into Melbourne, tests positive and the QLD government announce she must have caught it in Melbourne on arrival.....

    How can you complain about boring Tennis when we had a discussion on Cricket up thread.

    Prada Cup

    True but it does give Ineos in particular the ability to test any remaining upgrades in a race environment with minimal risk to their long term campaign.

    Prada Cup

    Given the mess we’ve seen pretty much everyone make of the start at some stage I’d be starting a dead race just for the forced timing at the start. Training where you control the watch is never the same. what we will potentially see is the teams rolling out some extra upgrades to test now they know it can’t result in them missing the final if it’s shit.

    It is no wonder people get pissed with you. Stop being a pedantic shit. Have conversations with people rather than looking to pick a fight with ever post (sorry most posts, sorry some posts) and we might all still be reading your essays and giving a shit what you have to say. A large number of people (being careful not to say most) would define 25 of 35 LGAs as most.

    To confirm, my comment was about the irony of you saying these things change daily just 10 minutes before they changed no a criticism of your post.

    that was pretty much out or date when your wrote it. Most of Sydney is now an Orange Zone. main difference between red and orange is red Dan personally decides if you're needed and welcome in Victoria, orange you can come for any reason but you have to get tested and isolate till it is processed.

    Gravity will do that without a ram holding them up.

    Maybe the kiwis will hoist their boat one up into their shoulders and March the boat around to the American base singing “Slice of Heaven”.

    I’m guessing it was a hydraulic ram sheering off it’s mounts then continuing through the side of the boat.

    Doesn’t that graph sort of ignore the fact that Victoria’s second wave was a hotel leak too?

    I don’t think ignorant bad leadership counts as treachery.

    Team NYYC

    Yesterday’s results were very much a case of the better sailers making a difference. Rita is competitive in those conditions and Ainslie and Co definitely sailed better than their competitors in terms of starts and picking sides etc.

    F1 - 2021 Longer Harder Faster

    They’re doing it with the Australian Tennis open players are flying in as we speak. They’ve even arranged training locations for the players to use in the lead up with them each being restricted to a certain number of training hours per day. The Grand Prix which is fly in and out within a week with 10 teams, media and officials would actually be easier to organise. I just don’t think the Australian promoters pushed it as hard as they would have if there wasn’t a possibility for a race later in the year.

    F1 - 2021 Longer Harder Faster

    I think there is some back room games going on with the Melbourne Grand Prix. If the teams were happy to do the bubble thing which they've done in the past they would have got permission to reduce the quarantine time. The thing is spectators would have been limited and as such so would the earnings. By delaying the event there is more chnace decent crowd numbers will be allowed helping the event make money.
  18. The main advantage of having the daggerboard on the Ama is you get an end plate on the leeward hull. With a farrier style centre daggerboard as soon as you fly two hulls you get ventilation on the dagger board.

    Careful what you wish for. The northern half of your state might decide that if the eastern coast can be split into 3 states WA could be at least 2.

    Ideal mast angle to wind

    https://taipan.asn.au/TT8.php definitely not a set and forget as your rotation not only effects the angle of attach of the sail and overall depth but also the longitudinal and transverse flexibility of the mast, particularly above the hounds. your mast is a little different to what we run on cats but there is a circle of tuning you need to go through with a cat mast where you adjust the mast angle for optimum flow but then need to adjust prebend etc to get the optimum sail shape to match which will have now changed the optimum mast rotation which will require adjustment. This is simplified quite a bit on the MG where the kite is such a dominant contributor to power off the wind that you can focus on upwind settings for the mast and main.

    that just shows they're being efficient with their spending. Left over clothing from the last cup. I don't know about you but most of my T'shirts are more than 4 years old anyway.

    The good news with closed state borders is because WA is Covid free and handling the pandemic so well and everyone is 100% happy with their policy, the Australian government can feel free to roll out vaccines in the at risk, unsafe etc etc eastern states first. Do we even need to buy vaccines for the westralians? They're fine aren't they? That is $150 million saving right there.

    I've come so close to hiding it at least once a day to piss off the heavy posters but as I don't think you can "un-hide" I've never taken the final step.

    F1 - 2021 Longer Harder Faster

    It’s definitely going to be interesting. I think Max has more natural talent and potential, but Perez like the other midfielders had been forced to race hard for every spot every week. if the Red Bull is hard to drive as many seem to think Perez is going to have to learn fast given the reduced practice days and now shorter P1 and P2 each week. which begs the question why is the red bull so hard to drive? Consensus seems to be the Merc is easy to drive and will go wherever you point it. What have Redbull done in their attempts to catch up that have left the car harder to drive than some of the others.

    do big race boats depreciate?

    If you have to ask you can’t afford it!
