Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Unless the tech companies push back properly with something like a boycott, I doubt the legislation will change. Only other thing that might do it is the inevitable massive breach provided they can't blame it on something else.

We get protests out the front regularly. Fortunately we have a back entrance and the windows are well soundproofed.

Yeah the right food helps a lot. The cat stays indoors and only gets indoor cat food - minimal smells. The dog is out during the day and eats whatever, loves to snuggle and fart lots at night.

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - November 2018

It's a balance between the smell and cleanup vs kitty killing wildlife and getting into fights.

For me the cat can stay inside so I don't have to deal with vets often and whatever damage to the neighborhood birds. No smell from the litter tray in the rest of the house 99% of the time.

It was always a terrible but entertaining idea. I can't imagine trying to really move it anywhere, never mind the rivers you'd also have to bulldoze a path through trees, houses, hills... Then there is this enormous target for artillery and bombers, with the previously mentioned bulldozed path point...

Re: Headphone recommendations

Just a general suggestion, but you can get clip on mics if you like a pair of headphones but don't like the equivalent headset.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Anyway, well done Otto for reaching a key milestone. Be sure to inform the workplace (I think it's the workplace) that your HECS is paid off else, from memory, they will keep paying and you won't get that overpayment back till your next tax return. That reminds me I gotta chase up on my own tax ret...

Technically correct. If he didn't vacate the seat there wouldn't have been a by-election. Can't blame Scomo and co for the loss, they are perfect and never wrong.

Holidays depends on the teacher and the year level. If they're doing it right* they don't end up with much more than 6 weeks a year for high school after dealing with professional development, marking and prep. Plus they have to deal with about 25-30 unruly children/teenagers for most of a day. * Pl...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

I know that trophy hunting can be good (ignoring corruption and fuckups), but my main question was why? From the video posted by Disco, is it because "kablaming rare animals makes you feel like a man"? Edit: Thinking about it a bit more, is it a societal thing? Trying not to be mean or anything, but...

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Can anyone actually explain to me what the point of trophy hunting is? Seems the only purpose is to confirm that yes, shooting something does indeed tend to kill it. At least pest and food hunting serve some purpose.

That's a lot of soft drink. Might be able to save some decent cash with sodastream/sodaking, plus you get the fun of making your own flavours.
