    Big Brother House in MS Flight Sim 2020

    It came out about a week ago. I haven't played one in many years. Many many years. So I am new, but not completely alien to it all. I signed up to the Xbox game pass on PC to try this out. It's only $1 for the first month ($5 bucks after) and my PC is well specced. It's fun, very pretty...

    Big Brother House in MS Flight Sim 2020

    Some screenshots of the Big Brother house in the new Microsoft Flight Simulator. The NSW one appears to be autogenerated buildings before it was converted into the house. The Goldcoast one is photogrammetry. I assume taken from Bing maps. But who would know! I haven't quite figured out the...

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    Does anyone else have lots of friends and some family overseas and getting really jealous of their social media? As they are seemingly living life as normal, going on over seas holidays etc.

    Things That Make You Laugh

    Been watching lots of videos of "Kays Cooking" on youtube. Hilarious!

    No wonder they're trying to deflect the blame to Dan the man!

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    It's a pyramid scheme, you put more people into the economy, the economy grows. The total economy looks good on paper. Yet the GDP per captia is going down. The quality of life is going down, but we're not meant to notice this. Without addressing it, the only solution is keep pumping more and...

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    It's a complicated issue. I don't know the answer, I do however know I would absolutely hate it if they built one of those near me. It sounds like a horror show. Drug dealers now know where to sell, people can't wait and shoot up on the street leaving syringes around. The staff in the facility...

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    When Howard started bringing in migrants from certain parts of Africa, there was discussions and warnings about integration which was ignored. Which in doing so all but ensures you have issues with it. It isn't doing what is best for the immigrants or the wider community. Which directly leads to...

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    I think in the context of hiring security guards, it's just finding jobs for international students and immigrants that are low skilled, find it hard to find work. Which really means, cheap disposable labour. Social inclusion is an excuse. The state Gov didn't hire these guards, so how much...

    Post BB Housemate Antics - Part 5

    I think Chad's the kind of guy who just has a girl, wherever he is. Minimal effort, he's simple enough that he likes her, is genuine but then forgets when he moves elsewhere, finds someone else. Not sure about Sophie. To people being cynical, you can get in relationships in situations that...

    If You Were Ever Cast on Big Brother, What Strategy Would You Use To Make It To The End?

    Although from past seasons, people have seemed to like stupid humour. People making funny faces. Trevor was meant to be hilarious, yet all he did was occasionally hide behind a pot plant and jump out to scare people.

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    It will be interesting to see where this lands, if anywhere. As far as I can tell, the social inclusion may not have been dictated by the state government. Maybe that one company was hired. We'll have to see. African street gangs have been a problem for 20+ years in Victoria. Not a Dan Andrews...

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    It's just an interesting angle at how some of the hiring could have happened for these low skilled people. It's funny how, "social inclusion" and the highing of immigrants, students or whatever is painted as a social good but it's just people cheating out to screw everyone over. I didn't see...

    I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet. Interesting. Security guards hired for hotel quarantine in an attempt at social inclusion https://www.theage.com.au/politics/victoria/security-guards-hired-for-hotel-quarantine-in-an-attempt-at-social-inclusion-20200807-p55jlz.html

    If You Were Ever Cast on Big Brother, What Strategy Would You Use To Make It To The End?

    I think the key would be to go with the flow, slide under the radar for the first few weeks. Try not to be disliked, see where you land with the groups. Try to not be a threat and only start to make moves around the midpoint, but be subtle. I don't know how I'd play it for the home audience, I'm...

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    We need to give it at least two more weeks and see where we're at. If it doesn't work, we're screwed. We'll have to open up, quarantine oldies, at risk people, make people take their own precautions.

    Bill Shorten's offices are down the shops swell, I'll pop in and ask him to send a message.

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    I live in a suburb of Melbourne. The shops were a ghost town during the first lockdown, this was back to normal, not even like the late stages of the first lockdown. Yesterday I went for a run at the rive and it was also really packed. Although I'm working on figuring out what times it's...

    THE VIRUS 2020 - the good, the bad, and the ugly

    Went out today, people everywhere. Honestly, it was like a normal busy Friday down at the local shopping street. Carparks near full, people everywhere. People really don't give a shit. A lot of people lack basic hygiene or claim others are over sensitive. As I understand it, the risks of...
