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.

I've always thought about getting one of those, but then how do I keep it cold? Definitely won't fit in the fridge.

Reminds me of that YouTube billing call where the call center doesn't know the difference between 0.02 dollars and 0.02 cents.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

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.

Re: Fleeting/Random/Thoughts

Pretty easy to spend a lot of money on those games, they are designed that way on purpose.

If you are feeling particularly vindictive you could let her know the industry term for somebody who spends a lot on those games is 'whale' :evil:

There's been a few going around like that recently. Basically they pulled your email address and password combination from a recentish dumped list of passwords and are emailing everyone on the list trying to extort them. As long as the password has been changed you should be fine. It's a step up fro...

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.

You can do a reasonable job with paintbrushes. Also a lot of hobby stores have spray cans of the appropriate colours which are fine unless you want a complicated camo pattern.

Isn't there some sort of retailer code of conduct that says they should give it for free if it rings up wrong for at least the first item?

Well if they had of kept to the original plan it would have been great, since the fibre can be upgraded to 1 gbps. As of now with the mess they've made of it plenty of people are better off on their old connections.
