Oh man I missed it yesterday cause I was cleaning/watching NFL but the Game Done Quick Marathon that raised 2.2mil for the Prevent Cancer foundation had the regular main event, a Super Metroid Race get awkward as hell when 1 of the race commentators told the audience they are cancer and if they really wanted to prevent cancer they would kill themselves, simply because they were doing Wario impressions...

yeah they always have something horrible happen each year, its bound to happen with a 7 day straight stream of people speed running obscure games, you're bound to get a few people with poor social skills or who just aren't used to public speaking in front of an audience + thousands watching online, Usually that stuff happens in the quiet 3am slots where they put on games that won't attract as many viewers. The Metroid Race is basically a tradition at this point, its the second last game played at every event. Apparently the guys in the race and on the couch were all being super serious about it this year demanding silence like they were trying to go for legit world record runs, its a race for chairty chill out guys...

The Mario Sunshine Race they did was awesome because they when they stuffed something up they laughed and wanted the crowd to cheer them on.

Come on Matty, we all know you were down at the Crazy Horse last night with Nollsy. Everyone knows bikies hang around strip clubs with 3 time winners of a Nickelodeon Australian Kids' Choice Award.
Mate, if I knew Nollzy was gonna be there I'd have been there in a flash. I missed out on so much drama!

Is it just me, or are there are so many courier services around now? It seems like every second package I get these days gets delivered by the same person but under a different brand, and Youtube seems to be sticking ads into the middle of videos now :/

I've seen the same courier guy that often turns up at my work in different company polos on different days of the week. Wouldn't be too surprising if some of the couriers work for multiple companies if one company is unable to provide full time.

Probably a few owner drivers, The courier company in our town is an agent from TNT, Startack, Toll Express and the greyhound bus freight, they just wear their own uniforms and they passenger seat of the delivery van just holds all the different machines

I've found a courier company needs to mention how fast they are in their name its usually a sign that sucker is going to take longer than it would have Via Australia Post.

Chatting to the dental assistant this morning while we were waiting for the dentist. The assistant's going on maternity leave in a weeks time... I didn't even notice she was pregnant. I think I would best describe my observational skills as lacking.

I should go to the dentist, I haven't been in a few years now since my cracked tooth stopped hurting, I'm definitely due for a clean at the least.. although dentists are such a pain in the ass and expensive I just keep putting it off.

I know blah blah pay more now pay less later, but if a tooth has an issue they can just pull the damned thing.

You should pretty well never mention or ask if someone is pregnant anyway unless they are panting loudly and screaming "OMG THE BABY IS COMING!" and you can see an infant's head appearing from between her legs... even then, perhaps act surprised.

you don't need to shave your balls to get a woman pregnant, in fact if you mess it up your chances of getting anyone pregnant will drop significantly...

It's hard to mess up, the care scale runs from 1-10 with 10 being holding a new baby... and shaving your balls is #11 :lol:

Well, it's not illegal, but everyone does it anyway. I can't filter yet though.
