Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

My impression is if you were an American you'd be vehemently for one side or the other, have some fairly biased views and then completely fail to ever go and vote to do anything about it.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Just watching Scott Morrison talk about the Wentworth by-election result/loss for them - essentially Liberals are strong, Labor and Bill Shorten would be terrible for the country, we're the best. I'm not sure doubling down on your convictions after a humiliating defeat is the correct path forward th...

Re: What are you watching?

Ant Man and the Wasp. Actually really liked it. It's been a long time since I enjoyed a Marvel movie all the way from start to finish, I didn't think they had it in them to make a movie like that anymore.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Got my feedback from my lecturer finally. I ended up stacking 3 emails on top of each-other over the weekend as I thought of more things I wanted answers to.
Maybe not the best impression to be making on the person who has yet to grade my final exam. But fuck it. I didn't sign up not to learn.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Stupid, frustrating lecturer. I asked for more feedback on my assignment and he copy paste's some of what was already written and basically says "read this bit". I already read that bit. Stop trying to avoid actually teaching and do your damn job.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

My brother has a .44 magnum rifle he uses for pigging. Not the best range, but a big hunk of lead and pretty great stopping power. I'll just take that on the plane with me. Saving money left and right!

If you do plan on safari and, assuming you want advice on camera gear, let me know. All too happy to provide advice to suit any budget. You know, I'm not sure I'm going to go that route.

Was thinking about a trip to Kenya at the end of the year/start of next. Enquired at my GP about shots I'd need. $600-800 and 2 months lead time. Jesus.

Third season of Lethal Weapon has started (With Seann William Scott instead of the guy who played Riggs). I thought the first episode was pretty good.

Re: What are you watching?

Finished with BoJack. It turned out fine in the end. I enjoyed it, no real complaints.

Started on Ozark season 2. Watch 5 or 6 episodes and stopped. It's gotten too formulaic. The plot takes one step forward, then two steps back. Every single time. I got tired of it.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

NBN (fttn) available at my house now! Apparently. Blah. I really can't be arsed going through the process of working all that stuff out. I think I'll just stick with ADSL for a couple months, see if any decent deals or information filters through in the meantime.

Re: What are you watching?

Season 5 of BoJack Horseman as well. I don't actually remember the past seasons so well. But I'm pretty sure they didn't focus on the supporting characters nearly as much as they have this season. Only half way through at the moment, but it feels like a "We've run out of ideas with what to do with B...

Re: What are you watching?

The Jack Ryan series on Amazon goes alright. Only a couple episodes in, but my goodness is it some high budget stuff. Fingers crossed the story lives up to the money they seem to have spent on it.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Went for my HR driving test today. Had a good yarn with the assessor while doing it, wandered all over town, my hour of driving was up before I even realised. Passed without any problems at all.

So much less stressful than I remember my car license being.

I wish the media would stop giving Tony Abbott air time. I mean, I get why they're doing it - He's just an out and out shit stirrer and that makes for good TV. But I can't see how it's doing Australia any good.

Just got one of those spam solicitation type emails literally titled "[SPAM] Hello My Friend,"

Not entirely sure who they're targeting with that one. People who appreciate honesty but are also inexplicably trusting?

Invariably drop any vegetable I'm peeling at least once. Held onto a spud extra tight tonight to try and break the trend. Cut my finger with the peeler for the first time ever instead. Fuck.

So I always thought the Ibis (bin-chicken) had pretty much just expanded into urban areas and was simply being a bit of a pest. But for a large part it's actually been properly displaced from its original wetlands (by us) and the urban populations are now a significant part of the whole. Which is fa...

Re: Show Us Your Latest Purchase - August 2018

Do Kettle chips have flavours that just come and go? I almost never buy them, but I tried a packet a while back to see if they were still painfully hard to chew (they're not) and I've never seen that flavour again. Rosemary and sea-salt. I quite liked them.
