Got myself a pack of Zooper Doopers yesterday. How f*cking great are they? i haven't had one for about 15 years but they are as good as I remember. Go and get a pack and relive your youth.

And Cut your Lips in the process.

The trick is to kinda cut it sort of diagonally at the sides.

 

Those Cruncha frozen orange juice things are pretty good too. The IGA down the road has started selling them for 99 cents each already frozen.

 

None of them beat the good old Sunny Boy though

Ah Western Australia, where the temperature will be in the mid 30's one day, then be high 10's the next day

 

Anyone seen the "hazelnut roll" ice-creams anymore? That sh*t used to be expensive but by god they were delicious.

Former Chief of Army David Morrison has been named Australian of the Year for 2016. Could not have gone towards a more deserving and well-respected individual.

Many may remember him from his speech in relation to unacceptable behaviour within the ADF.

I don't personally feel he was just doing his job as military chief and not anything particularly deserving of the Australian of the year award. He only made his speech following a series of scandals in the ADF and was reacting to external pressure. I feel if was really such a strong advocate for equality he would have acted proactively and tried to stop such scandals before they occured rather than just giving a speech in reaction to media pressure.

I only referred to his speech as a popular reference; one which many people would be familiar with.

 

While his work obviously began to be put under pressure after the scandals, he had been an advocate for equality within the Australian Army and the wider defence force since his term as Chief of Army began. He pushed for many changes - a number of which were implemented early in his term.

 

His statement was released as a directive to members of the Australian Army nation-wide, and later published by public affairs as a simple YouTube video. It was never intended to go viral - it was a simple message to his soldiers.

Your statement regarding "stopping scandals before they occured" is simply ignorant. The personnel involved were participating in these scandals long before Morrison had even been appointed as Chief of Army. To say that he is not a strong advocate for equality because he could not stop such instances from happening before he even had any form of knowledge of them is extremely naive.

 

He has left a legacy of equality and anti-discrimination that continues within the ADF (a much needed change), and continues to focus on issues such as the gender pay gap and domestic violence.

 

A very admirable man with incredible leadership qualities and ideals. I was extremely proud to serve under him and am glad that he has received recognition for his work.

 

Cheers!

Well, that's more or less the way I think with regards to these sorts of scenarios; Should we really be awarding what is supposed to be one of the more prestigious awards (whether one agrees or not) to someone who is simply doing what ultimately we expect to be done from a person of that position? My answer is no.

 

But it's whatever.

@ officer620

That's a very well written and eloquent response and you're probably right about me being naive about the cultural changes David Morrison has made however I still do not believe the Australian of the year award should be awarded to the head or any large publicly funded organisation, whether that be the ADF or say the department of human services. They might do great things but that's kind of what we as a nation should expect them to do and be disappointed if they don't. It's easy to change the culture when you can issue top down directives and IMO the Australian of the Year Award should be awarded to individuals who don't have that type of power but have still managed to make a change (or have dedicated their lives to trying) for the better in wider society.

While the changes David Morrison has made within the military are admirable in reality all they are is brining the organisation into the 21st century and more in line with the rest of society. IMO the Australian of the year award should be recognition of something for giving us all values to aspire to and for making things greater rather than playing catch up and finally starting to line up with how the rest of society treats people. As head of the army David Morrison may have changed the culture for the better but the only reason it needed changing in the first place was because of the attitudes and policies of the top brass. Head office was cleaning up the problems they created in the first place and I still honestly believe the only reason that the organisation felt the need to change was because of external pressure from the media/ wider australia (but I suppose that's true when it comes to progressive change in any large organisation).

 

All of this isn't to say that David Morrison isn't an honourable and admirable man that shouldn't be recogonised (he certainly should be in some way) but IMO his circumstances don't warrant our highest civilian honour.

 

Thank you for your service

What's your opinion on Rosie Batty's Win last year?

 

Are people like her more fitting for the Award, in your opinion?

Some fair points you have made there. Who do you think should have been awarded Australian of the Year 2016, out of interest?

 

Hope you had a good 'Straya day.

 

Cheers!

I consider myself left wing. Very left wing. However, I cannot stand what people who call themselves left wing are doing to our country.

 

Being easily offended, supporting censorship and trying to control the behaviour of others is a typically conservative/right wing approach. Why does nobody see this?

 

The Rooster's captain did something stupid, sure. But I do not think that any regular person has not partaken in at least one comparably stupid act while under the influence of alcohol, or even while completely sober. It sickens me that people who clearly see no problem with Mitchell's behaviour are merely condemning him so they don't receive the public ridicule that Mitchell has received personally.

 

Modern society is a joke. We pretend to be open and accepting while viciously condemning anyone or anything that exceeds the parameters of acceptable behaviour.

you've probably worked it out by now, but pretty much what the guy above said.. from what i can tell, pearce had had a few, went up to someone's apartment, got rejected, became a bit more douchey and then left.. and of course, someone was filming. it's all up for your viewing pleasure if you want to watch and decide for yourself.

 

the qlder in me thinks, "sucked in, idiot", but the rest of me thinks it's been blown way out of proportion.

 

jolly made a valid point earlier, something along the lines of people being commended for common human decency, and on the other end of the spectrum, it seems things get jumped on by the vilify squad in accordance with whatever agenda is currently occurring. whenever i see those dumb advertisements with the guys saying, "i swear, i swear, i swear blah blah blah", i can't help but think, "good on you mate, you're being a decent person, here's a lollipop and a medal".

 

do we really live in a country populated by so many dickheads that we need an ad to tell us how to treat people properly? apparently we do. i don't think the woman was in any danger at any point.. and i think the dog will get over it
