  1. The world of ownership in general is ending. Ownership will be a concept for the elite... Classic the rich get richer scenario. Only inequality is rising far faster now.
  2. So I'm home alone as my wife and kids have gone to the zoo. I'm chilling at home. Doing housework! Went to Jumuah, and now I'm back and waiting on HQTrivia to start! Tonight I have work, which sucks.
  3. It's all so overcast and gross here.
  4. Yes.
  5. Hi guys. Working 6 night weeks and running around after the kids kind of took it out of me, but I think I'm getting back into the rhythm of things. Looking forward to being back properly!
  6. Not much, just the mundane shit. Work, family and such. No.
  7. As someone who doesn't have allergies I don't share this experience. My son has some mild ones though. Poor kid.
  8. Absolute shite. Overcast. Cold. Not good in general.
  9. Pretty gosh darn hot.
  10. YAS QUEEN! RENEWABLES FTW! SA are really doing great on this front. Then you have fossil fuels morons claiming their reliance on renewables is responsible for the mass blackout in early 2017 and it's like dude, sit down, that was a freak storm and probably wouldn't have been so intense if not for climate change FFS.
  11. As someone who's been one of those exploited Aussies, I have to say it's not fun and the strain it causes is absolutely ridiculous. My old employer can burn for what he did, honestly.
  12. The closer i'm getting to 30, the more worried I'm getting as things just seem to suck more and more. I guess getting 'default respect' from strangers is a thing. But really, are there any actual perks, or is, as they say 'all downhill from here'?
  13. If everyone was always 100% honest with each other how would the world change? No exceptions, no wiggle room. Humans literally lose the capacity to lie. My list so far - People last a lot less long in jobs. Divorce rate shoots up. Murder rate shoots up.
  14. N64

    So, upon moving into my new house I opened a box that was in our old garage that I'd not seen in years. Inside was my childhood N64 which has become something of a nostalgic addiction lately. Replaying Bsanjo-Kazooie, Gauntlet Legends, Goldeneye and Mario Kart 64 in particular. Though, I've been looking around for some new games to try out - or to find some old ones thta I had an used to play for hours on end (NBA Courtside 1999 anyone?!) So, two things: 1. Does anyone know anywhere one could pick up retro games at a reasonable price? I've heard it's best to avoid eBay. 2. Does anyone have any game recommendations? I've found some games at my local cash converters on recommendation of a guy who works at a gaming shop that I was inquiring in, but they had like three games and they all sucked.
  15. May I remind you of a little thing called iSketch?
  16. Cold and rainy. Looking out the window now...Entirely overcast. Yuck.
  17. Woke up tired. Drove the kids to their respective destinations. Came home, to my wife, who is now still sleeping at 1:30PM (almost) I really don't know how she can do that, but whatever. Oh. Also. Dreading work tonight.
  18. So far I've just gotten up and spent the morning with the kids (despite getting home from work at like 4:30AM and being tired as hell.) This afternoon I need to pay some bills and do some shopping. Oh joy.
  19. I do not. As I do not eat meat. *Awaits boos and hisses* ...I'm not a real vegetarian though. Pescatarian works for me.
  20. Finally got internet access after like, a month. God, moving house with Optus! Hopeless I tells ya!
  21. I remember in 2006, I was flying from Germany to Italy and as I was looking out the window I saw lightning strike the wing of the plane. Of course I was freaked out, and I told my family (parents, etc.) who didn't believe me... ...Until the announcement from the pilot confirming that it had happened, and that everything was fine.
  22. Has anyone here had any near death experiences!? Personally, the closest I've been was back in my rebel days (I used to drink, as a child) where I wound up being hospitalised after a high school party for consuming way too much of a straight alcoholic liquid in a miniscule time period. I was told had I not been hospitalised there is no way I'd have survived. I was 17 at the time.
  23. Personally, I have kids - though a lot of my friends don't want them for several different reasons. It's always interesting to hear why, even though I totally don't relate. This having been said, I personally always wanted kids and have since had three children. Two girls, and one boy. What are your thoughts?
  24. House worked...Then employment worked. #MyLife
  25. Oh. Go me for not even really using Email.
