Idiots driving on country roads ( national parks ) where there isnt a white line. They seem to think thats its all theirs and just drive down the middle. Nearly  got cleaned up twice today if I hadnt gone off onto the shoulder. They both had no intention of moving over.
And.
Why do police cars have to have such bright flashing lights on them.
Came across a RBT in main street in town tonight just after dusk. The lights were so dazzling I struggled to see the 2 coppers standing in middle of roads .
Thats it. Rant over.

Why do women feel the need to fill a peaceful silence with random conversation?......

So you've met my mother in law

Flu or cold?  I had the flu shot a few months ago but picked up a cold 2 weeks ago.  Knocked the Shit out of me for a couple of days and still have the sniffles and a cough.  Hope its only a cold because the bloody flu can be deadly (specially for us old bastards).  Either way your gunna feel like Shite for a few days.....plenty of paracetamol!!  Stay in bed.

cheers.. :cheers:

Started getting it Friday.
It really kicked in by lunchtime Saturday..... I even stopped working on the mighty OzTin.
Yesterday, was just moaning, coughing, sneezing and farting in no particular order. (no work on OzTin at all)
Today, I ate for the first in 48 hours.... hah, also had my first crap in 48 hours..... nearly over baked that too.
At one point, in a 24 hour period, I slept for around 20 hours.
I think the ol girl has left my life insurance policy on the dining table too.
$550,000 vs 24 hours of mourning and she has to finish the Austin herself..... tough decision right there.


Hope I don't cark it, with only one door trim card to make up and to get the white walls done. (was to be done today too)
Oh, and Doug's dropping out the old sideplate Holden motor next Saturday for a rebuild too.

Nah, i'll be fine. I did post somewhere on here though about flu shots being a waste of time and I takes me chances.
Won't I look stooped.... more stoopiter... than I normally do.

The betting mob, re Tod Carney advertising.
Who TF thinks it is funny or clever?
I guess brain dead bogans that believe betting on sport is smart.
Buy hey, as long as at the bottom of the ad is says gamble responsibly.

Given that the Aussie's have taken to a company called Neds, I really don't hold out much hope....




Neds is owned by Ladbrokes
A Ned in Scottish is Non Educated Deliquent
I think the Brits from Ladbrokes were taking the pi$$ out of the Aussies...

Not sure if you are taking the pi§§ out us well informed swaggers.
Now I don’t bet or consider myself a gambler unless you consider the punt that I may have taken on property investments. I admit I do have a regular $50 donation to Endeavour Foundation prize home lottery so I guess I am a gambler.

I don’t consider myself a bogan, but hey I did work in Bogan shire after the great flood rebuild of 1989? and must say Bogans are fine people

I not either a vegan or a professional protestor.
But I do have a sense of humour and did have a laugh at that commercial.

Not quite sure of the issue

Hey Rags,
Carney is a piece of Shit.
In my opinion using what he did as an advertising tool  to sucker coin out of people is farked.
Considering the cost to families that gambling does.
But hey, what do I know, the nrl have drug cheats as Immortals..


Edit,
A mate lost his business through the Odd bet.
If you can see nothing wrong with Carney drinking his own piss to promote a business that thrives on deception.
Catch ya.

Todd Carney is no saint and has suffered consequences of his actions  and should be entitled to a redemption of some sort. I’m not here to defend him, but his crime is far less of an issue for me in comparison with some of the grubs that are currently playing or previously played before him especially towards women.

His crime was that someone decided to film him in a toilet ( which if I did this to you would result in me being charge with a range of offences) and then publicly release the vision

I agree with you in that they should not be allowed to broadcast gambling ads. But if they are legally allowed to, so then I’m happy for them to do it with humour.

If we waste energy on being annoyed with things like this ad then life will turn sour quickly which is not helpful for ones state of mine.

They are glorifying an act that only the market they are targeting accept.
So, why subject the rest of us to this?
If you use their app, sure, fill the users screen with it,  but at a family time of night with kids still watching the telly, they(the betting mob) are way out of line.

The whole ladbrokes thing is much the same, I’m sure those guys have made heaps of Lads Broke too...

True,

But I see it as social engineering,
Little by little marketing is changing how people think and react.

That’s how advertising has worked for years. Only option to avoid it is to stop watching tv/facebook/google/eBay/any media..

Brands and that aren’t even for kids advertise in a way to get kids attention, one theory is that 10-15years later when the kid is in the market for that product that brand will be at the forefront of their minds!

And CBA = Can't Be Arsed...

I spent a lot of time doing valuation in economics (particularly around project appraisals) and there has been a shift from CBA (cost-benefit analysis) to BCA (benefit-cost analysis)

The whole ladbrokes thing is much the same, I’m sure those guys have made heaps of Lads Broke too...

I'd not even twigged on that one - mainly because I wasn't looking at it that way; Neds has a degree of a friendly name to Aussie's (Ned Kelly) but has a subtle streak of getting a dig in at someone if people notice it.

*bollocks: Neds was in existence and then bought by Ladbrokes... there goes my idea that it was the Brits taking the pi$$...

However, it was started by an ex-Ladbrokes chief executive...

The way we communicate, keep in touch/social media, is here, how we choice to use that is a matter for the individual, but when I'm watching free to air idoit box, I'm insulted by betting ads, more so if that ad is pushed every ad break in programming.

So, obviously their marketing is working.
Why else the saturation.
Yep, the vast population has the brain power of a jelly fish.

The "bubbler"  was an illusion that  you were drinking it. But I thought it was funny ( the ad )..

They stopped alcohol advertising, so betting should also be banned..
