      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Got to laugh at the intro, but great show
  2. http://www.nme.com/news/music/grant-hart-dead-husker-du-2140564 Very sad news, I am a huge Husker Du fan and whilst his solo output hasn't been as prolific as former band mate Bob Mould, he did write some beautiful songs. My first ever place with a girlfriend was a tiny studio apartment in Rushcutters Bay. The place was so small our lounge had to double as our bed but did have great big windows to let in the sun. The first thing I unpacked and set up was my stereo and the first song I played was Grant's classic 2541. It's been a tradition that every time I have moved, since that place in 1989, I have played that song. Right up to our more recent purchase on the Bellarine this last Xmas. RIP Grant.
  3. I used to love the Barracuda run
  4. I was always going to be a doctor, from a young age I was intrigued by anatomy and physiology, and was always the first with a band aid etc when a friend was injured. Prior to starting year 11, I had enrolled in all the appropriate course for medicine; maths, physics and chemistry. I was all set. Then two weeks into the school year I became unwell and spent three days in hospital. It was then that I had an epiphany. My whole life I figured I wanted to be a Dr. because doctors are men and nurses are women, but in hospital I observed first hand what actually happens ( not what the TV says). From that point I realized I wanted to be a nurse. Well the shit hit the fan when I told my classmates. Back in the late 80's small town rural Australia male nurses were "gay". Sadly, some of you dumb fucks might still think this way. I copped a lot of grief at school, especially from one kid. He was in the year below but was in a whole different weight category to me. That kid punched me in the mouth one four separate occasions, whilst calling fag, pomfret etc. Each time I laughed at him and said that I hope my jaw didn't hurt his hand. The beatings stopped after a week or so. I figured he found someone else to pick on. Fast forward 10 years and I in charge of a cardiac surgery ward in Sydney one afternoon when a new staff member was starting. In pranced this particularly effeminate nurse with bleach blonde hair, guess who? Yep, my friendly highschool bully. I mention this LB because those stereotypes of latent homosexuality presenting as aggression are real and have merit.
  5. I have hundreds of these isapods in my fish tank, never bites me but I have clown who tries to take a chunk out of me every time I put my hand in the water.
  6. Love 'em or hate 'em? Personally I have been a fan since 1984. This isn't about their music and or politics- especially as they have always sided with the "let's get pissed" side of punk rock and have very little to do with the whole anti establishment ethos but there is seriously something wrong with the USA when artists are denied entry purely for a little piss taking.

  7. Waltzed it in! Good on ya. http://mobile.abc.net.au/news/2017-08-04/matildas-claim-tournament-of-nations-with-win-over-brazil/8775542

  9. Apologies I thought he was on the mainland in Darwin?
  10. HepB is still currently incurable and it is one of the many variables that are considered as not meeting the inclusion criteria for organ transplantation.
  11. It bygone times it was said "if you can't say something nice, say nothing at all". It would appear for you and some other drop kicks here, "if you can't say something nice take it to PA". You offered no condolences, no kind words just a picture of refuse. Nice work mate- you are a deadshit. Drug and and alcohol abuse in the indigenous and wider community is a valid discussion, but there are other issues here- self determination and euthanasia. A work colleague's husband similarly died last week in hospital from chronic renal disease. He had been receiving dialysis for years and ultimately wanted to die in his home surrounded by his friends and family. Sadly, this wasn't the case and whilst he was in a nice quiet ward with his friends and family present it wasn't the same. Apparently that is what Dr. G. Also wanted. He had enough of hospitals and dialysis and so had been hiding out at a beach camp. He wanted to die on his own terms with his friends around him, not unlike Kerry Packer. Sadly he was taken to hospital and did end up dying there. I don't know whether he would have preferred to have died at home on Elcho? I wished his he felt empowered and supported enough to just say this is what I want and didn't have to hide.
  12. ^Moderate you are a deadshit
  13. Currently only be using used for semi-trailers and buses for Australia. Although I am led to believe they aren't really being used- more as a deterrent; like a cardboard cop car, but hey what's great revenue raising scheme.
