they did this at Cronulla leagues club in the 80/90's cant remember - they had a machine near the exit... all it became was a competition machine for who could blow the highest. Surely a few may have been legit but it didn't last long and was taken away :S

What a sad world
people go to an organised event with strippers, then complain...

Quote
Three Yarra Trams employees have been stood down pending an investigation, following complaints about a strip show hosted at the Brunswick tram depot Christmas party.

The Andrews Government has weighed into allegations about the lewd performance at the party, which was run by the employee-run social club at the depot.

"While this is a matter for Yarra Trams, it's an incredibly disappointing incident that clearly doesn't meet community expectations," a government spokeswoman said.

It is understood that Yarra Trams received two complaints from employees who attended the Christmas party at a restaurant in the inner-north for depot employees.



The entertainment is believed to have been "fat-o-gram," a name given to a plus size stripper, but Yarra Trams would not confirm this

"... doesn't meet community expectations"
I have no problems with it... do you? Been to a few fat-o-gram strip nights they are piss funny

Nothing to do with the Community at all.
It's a PRIVATE Function. If your going, you should know what's about to happen.
By going, you give your consent to it happening while your there.
If your not happy, YOU LEAVE, you don't hang around to be even further disgusted or upset.
If the people whinging remained, they have NO Grounds for their complaint.

Having a whinge and getting others in trouble is the in thing these days though...we all need to be offended by something you know.

In the news today,   http://www.smh.com.au/technology/innovation/slowdowns-expected-as-computer-industry-races-to-fix-security-flaws-20180103-p4yy8g

'Your laptop could soon be running noticeably slower, an Australian security expert says, as the world's computer industry scrambles to counteract two major flaws just discovered in the design of almost all of the world's processors.
Security researchers have disclosed a pair of security flaws, dubbed Meltdown and Spectre, that they say could let hackers steal sensitive information from nearly every modern computing device, from smartphones and laptops to the machines that power the internet.' "You may lose anywhere between 15 to 30 per cent of your [computer's] power. Things like starting software, or browsing the internet, may actually slow right down,"

Now if this is a fault from the manufacturers then we should be able to get a refund or a new unaffected computer, laptop, smart phone etc? You would think???   Kevin
