The bloody media.
A basket baller and others die in a helicopter  crash and every bloody news bulletin is focused on that.
People crying, their lives are shatted all over the world.

On early morning tv one reporter said that Kyrgios loves the NBA and he will have to overcome his grief to beat Nadal tonight. WTF.

The media have no idea, seariously.
On the Project just now, an interview with some Yank Neville Nobody(in my eyes)  breaking down as he talks about this bloke.
FFS,

There are fathers and Mothers, foster parents, carers doing extraordinary things every day and getting no recognition.

The bloke had coin, he do what every he wanted, there are folk without a penny making a world of difference to others.

I guess bare hands goes with the all4adventures thongs dress code

Thing is...........you can drive along most dirt tracks these days and that scenario is everywhere.

No need to go to the cape to find that.

Yep just spent 5 nights at Dead River Beach, took the dog back into the scrub 30 meters for a dump, didn't feel the least bit guilty about not picking up, his crap will be gone in a week, the human crap will be there untill a massive flood comes down   :'( :'( :'(

Who was Kobi Bryant ?
Someone’s husband, father ,son brother who just so happen to be very good at basketball which allowed him to earn multi millions of dollars and enabled him to do great work of the court using his excesses of money.

Some of the comments made here about Kobi Bryant really highlight the moronic thinking and attitudes of some of the keyboard maestros on this forum.

We ban glass on our outback trips and bag up camp rubbish and take it to next town. Unfortunately you are all right there is a lot of rubbish left in the outback these days.

No idea who New Order are, but it is all a bit crazy. Guess sales of albums don't rake in much cash anymore with downloads and piracy.

The wife loves Elton John (unlike me) so I bought tickets to his Townsville concert. $130/ticket was bad enough. Sure it made my nose bleed, but hopefully this buys me plenty of wife brownie points so when I get a lift kit later this year she won't complain ;D

Was also checking out some of the better bands playing in Brisvegas soon...
Queen is $130-$700. $600 gets you right in front of the stage. Reckon I'd pay that once in my life to watch Brian May play up close
Iron Maiden tickets are $150-$450.
Alice Cooper tickets are $125-$350
Sadly being up here in the northern colonies, any concert budget has to include flights and accommodation so gets expensive.  :'(

In 1998 my brother and I did a trip from the good end of the country down to Sydney for a few days. And as you did back in the old days, we grabbed a local news paper to see if there was any good concerts on while we were in town.

There was nothing that really interested us that night, but I still remember that Engelbert Humperdinck was in town that night and tickets were only $500 each..... ::)
$500 for a Engelbert Humperdinck concert.... ::) In 1998...... ::)

Thanks for the link. Wow. How 80's was that.
Still didn't ring any bells though. Though the song on the following video on youtube  (True Faith) I may have heard somewhere before.
Then again, I was in school during the 1980s and wanted to be Eddie Van Halen and play hair metal, so didn't listen too may other styles.   ;D

Yep,
You could, there are many that leave this world, and leave it a richer place, yet you will never hear of them.

Seems every time I go to Coles or Woolies, I find 2/3 of the aisle I want to go down taken up by staff member slowly loading up a wide cart stacked with plastic boxes full of stuff for an online shopper.  >:D
The grumpy old fart in me thinks why can't the pricks do their own shopping  ???    ;D ;D
