  1. Hang on a second mate. The reason they are picking on him mainly is because there are no amep policies to talk about. I don't know how you can judge him already considering he had yet to face the media let alone parliament. The party had been organised in about 3 months prior to election time. I doubt they even considered winning a seat this past election. The focus now is to regroup, face the media with their policy and answer some tough questions, and they need to do it well. Soon enough, the media will forget about them until next election time. Surely 3 months is long enough to formulate some substantial policies (other than 'better roads' and general core beliefs such as 'We believe in the people of Australia').?
  2. Stupidly priced petrol

    http://www.raa.com.a...aspx?TerID=1139 The petrol station makes a 6c gross margin in this example. A 4.3% margin, then remove wage costs, transportation, insurance costs and hopefully there is some left over for a profit. You'd pay much higher mark-ups on your clothes, shoes, insurance and food.
  3. tax times fun times

    I'm with this guy ^^. Also, the perspective needs changing. There should be no "Thanks ATO" in any sense. The money that you're getting back is because they've taken too much from you to begin with. If anything, you should either be thanking yourself for earning the money to begin with, or thanking your accountant for getting it back for you. I don't know what mine is going on yet. I want some computer monitors and my standard turbo rebuilt into a 3076 + supporting mods. The monitors are a given because they're the cheapest out of the lot, but I think the rest will go on some stiffening stuff, new bushes in various places and maaaaaaaybe an fmic if I'm lucky. I got the nod on the turbo setup from the boss, but I don't think she realises how much it's going to cost. What exec got a $3bn bonus?
  4. Who's doing Tough Mudder 2013?

    I'm not epileptic. It happened during the mud mile, which was far enough from the ice bath. Felt 100% during the race until I had the seizure.
  5. Who's doing Tough Mudder 2013?

    The frustrating part is I was well prepared for it and the doctors can't work out why I had the seizure. The amount of people that came into the St Johns setup at Mudder with injuries was scary.
  6. Who's doing Tough Mudder 2013?

    I did it...well part of it. 3kms in I had a seizure out of the blue, fell into the water, suffered a concussion and almost drowned. Spent 16hrs in emergency since Saturday...
  7. INMATE talks like a true CMFEU flunky. 293,100 working days were lost during the year ending June 2012 due to industrial action. If you want to see why they want to import 457 workers, look in your own camp OP

  9. 21 Ways To Improve Australia

    offset the cost by charging what is fair and decent for the minerals and timber taken out of our ground. problem solved. hell nationalize the mining sector. Yes, nationalising the mining sector is a great idea because the government has a great financial track record and a history of efficiency...

    "Bankster" is such a stupid word popularised by the media and Occupy Wallstreet losers to criminalise people that work in the financial industry. The shit thing about super isn't the people that run the funds, the shit thing is the stupid government sticking there nose into the trough and taxing it/changing the rules when they need to balance the books. umm... superfunds use the stock market to invest etc.... so yes the financial industry do control it. thus why when the "banksters" crashed the world markets and f**ked us they are directly to blame. government control is minimal at best. Superfunds invest in equites, fixed income products, private equity etc. I don't understand how fund managers are 'banksters'. The typical use of the work 'bankster' refers to investment bankers that apparently cause famines, teenage pregnancy, el nino and global warming (and everything bad in the world). Government control is NOT minimal in the superannuation industry, to say so is naive and indicates a complete lack of understanding about the industry. Explain to people that are close to retirement how the government cutting super contribution rates is 'minimal'. If you take issue with 'banksters' investing your money in equities, change the asset allocation.

    When putting together a routine it could help to watch some videos on youtube of the race, work out what exercises will help you out the most (eg. chin ups for the Berlin Walls) and focus on those. I did the last one (Melbourne) and didn't follow a set training routine. I ran atleast 5kms 2-3 times a week and did alot of exercises with kettlebells and a weight vest. From experience the hardest part is the mental side, its tempting to stop running 15kms in when your muscles are cramping, you've been running for 13kms with rocks in your shoes and weighed down with mud.

    Took us 2 and a half hours. The line ups completely defeat the purpose in my view but alot of people didn't seem to mind.

    I did it with 3 mates on Saturday. Was good fun. We were the 3rd wave out and didn't have any issues with line-up at obstacles. Apparently the line ups were really bad later in the day.
