Ok so is there actually a right way to launch a boat

Method 1 back trailer down till wheels are about half submerged and then kind of push boat off

Method 2 back trailer down to wheels are under water and float boat off

This debate went on for 4 hours around the campfire last weekend

Ha Ha both wrong. Tie a long rope to the bow of the boat, the other end to the trailer, reverse down the ramp at speed, when the wheels are just in the water slam on the brakes,boat self launches , drive forward slowly untill bow of boat is grounded.Easy peasy

Question for the people from the important state:

Does anyone really give a Shit about the Melbourne cup? Or even watch it?

Or just take the Monday off to make long weekend out of it :D

It's the sport of Kings. Can't say I've ever seen any of the royal family at the TAB.

Couldn't care less about it. It's an excuse for deckheads to dress up, get pissed and fight.
I've worked at a few and know to leave immediately after the last race. Years ago my wife and her sister had the bright idea to have the day a
at the races. Last race finishes and I say "time to go" as all the other humans were leaving. But instead we stayed as "we're not in a rush" the animals remained, a fight spilled over our picnic rug, some bird threw up next to us and drinks got spilled on us.

Never again.

That’s what happens with daylight saving. You start drinking too early and it all gets messy.

The original version of this video was visible last week. Then it disappeared. Apparently they were made to blur out faces.... Seems those in the video must have not been too proud of themselves.... Can't understand why?

Why would anybody have a need for so many power sockets in every room?

I wonder if they're actual live sockets, or does someone have weird ideas about interior decorating ???

Drug lab?


I did wonder about that but all the pictures of drug labs I've seen have had about 57kW draining from a single socket through a web of dodgy extension leads. Those look professionally done.

Question:
What is the advantage of a curved monitor V flat monitor?? Google gives me 2049230489 "reviews and options" that all clash... depending who wrote em.
They seem teh flavour of the minute at the minute, just not sure why....
you can also get some bigger sizes in curved with amazing resolutions...


Thoughts??
