Been whatching "Spartacus" on net flix the past few weeks and it's pretty f*cking sweet. It's filmed in New Zealand so there's heaps of C-grade Aussie actors and heavy kiwi accents. Everyone is yelling and dual weilding swords in slow motion all the time. The plot is based around litres of fake blood, decapitated heads, titties, sprayed on abdominal muscles and the director's homoerotic hang ups. You'll be hearing these dudes talk all serious about Rome and freedom and sh*t then in the next scene you'll see Max from "neighbours" get his heart ripped out by a Maori dude with that heavy a New Zealand accent that you're actually surprised the scene doesn't end with him saying "Killing that roman was choice as bro. I'm gonna put his heart in my chilly bin then go get some fish and chups and eat them sitting out on the dick".

As I said it's sweet as f*ck. That revival of "Australian Gladiators" would have went heaps better if you had to fight Derek Boyer with a trident.

Been whatching "Spartacus" on net flix

I've watched a few here and there, when others in the house have been watching.

I didn't realise till recently that the actor that played Spartacus first (Andy Whitfield) passed away back in 2011 from non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

 

When I first seen Lucy Lawless (remember Xena Warrior Princess) in the show, it was a double take, I know that face! took a bit to place her.

Any ways of getting around this? Buying from abroad seems like an option but the shipping kills the deal.

I usually just bulk buy so I can justify shipping - its outrageous. Try ordering from Canada rather than America, I've found shipping to actually be cheaper? Plus our dollar is simliar right now.

Yes.

Sad to see the junction at Flinders St. station with those sad pictures.

 

My thoughts go out to the innocent people involved.

It's not terrorism related despite what you're hearing.

 

It was a white bloke of Greek heritage performing doughies (donuts) outside Flinders Street Station in a banged up burgundy coloured 1990s Commodore, which was stolen from his neighbour, baiting the pigs while 2 Maori lads baited the Commy driver, one hitting his car with a baseball bat. He was wanted for an earlier stabbing of his brother (domestic dispute) and is well known to police. According to witnesses he appeared to be doped up to the eyeballs on drugs, most likely ice and was apparently spouting conspiracies about the government and a meteorite hitting us.

 

 

Still, unsurprisingly, despite all the facts, this didn't stop the right wingers here calling out all Muslims for this because people died so it can suit their outdated nationalist agenda/views. They're spouting misinformation just so they feel relevant.

 

 

He was apparently committing crimes last week and was let out on bail by a magistrate. This guy and said magistrate who gave him bail should serve 4 life sentences in prison. I'd be lying if I said I wouldn't be surprised if Daniel Andrews completely abolishes bail altogether in the near future.

Yeah no, I didn't hear anything other than him having mental issues couple with lots of drug abuse as well as fights with his family this week. Guy just seemed to flip out. It's just sad to see.

Not to bring political sh*t in here but hot f*cking dam this guy goes in my big red book of Political C*nts of Australia

 

https://twitter.com/DavidLeyonhjelm/status/822275984711745536

"Probably one of those semi-automatic assault cars."

 

This is in response to the accident yesterday in Bourke st Mall

Then later on he has the guts to give someone an Liberal democrat complaint form.

https://twitter.com/DavidLeyonhjelm/status/822320128532488192

Politics being Politics in Australia I expect that nothing will happen to David or if he does get called up for what he did it'll only be a slap on the wrist and back to being the C*nt he is.

And what's funny is this guy's profile is all about free speech but the people who have been having a dig at him for what he said have now been blocked from he's page. Yep call someone out on their sh*t and your reward is you get blocked from their page. Not even a sorry or apology from him.

for the curious he's also the same person who didn't want this photo of him going around.

Happy Australia day homies.

 

Australia's biggest ever fireworks worth 2 million (apparently) were cancelled because a light plane crashed into the swan river in front of Perth City and 2 died.

So, I'm thinking about moving to Australia once I get my degree.

 

Can any of you give me a run down on the cost of living, job markets, and citizenship related stuff?

Why are you from? Depending on where you live know there's a fair chance you won't be able to immigrate easily

Your best bet would probably trying to get a working visa. Its much easier if you can find an Australian employee and have them do it on your behalf but you might have a chance of being able to get one without a job lined up if you have skills in a profession that's in short supply in Australia (http://www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/Work/Skills-assessment-and-assessing-authorities/skilled-occupations-lists/SOL). Your only other real option would be to do more study here and try for a student visa. Cost of living is a fair bit higher than the US but wages are a higher here too. If your planning on moving to a capital city (especially Sydney or Melbourne) you're gonna be paying way more for property than in Colarado. House prices in Sydney are now apparently higher than San Francisco or New York. You probably would want to live in a capital city though cause there isn't much outside of them. Australia is a big country (about the same size in area as the us) but there aren't many people here so outside the strip along the eastern coast there is basically just sand. I'd recommend coming for an extended holiday here before thinking about moving. If you're still young you should be able to get a working holiday visa easy enough so you can at least subsidise your travel by picking fruit or pouring beers or something.

Word. My idea was to save up for a bit and fly out for a few weeks, check things out, see how useful a IT degree will be out there, see some costs and things. You know, really get a feel for what I'll be getting into.

IT is huge market for work at the moment. Most Australian's aren't doing courses in IT to fill the areas. Eastern States have more job opportunities than WA, unless you are looking to take your IT skills into the mining sector.

I'd pick a smaller town that is close to a major city, so you can reap the benefits of work of a capital city but not have to live there. If you have lived in major cities all your life but, pick one here as well.

Skilled visa website w/ all the different visas to choose from - www.border.gov.au/Trav/Work/Work/Skills-assessment-and-assessing-authorities/skilled-occupations-lists

Your visa will probably temp skills work - subclass 457. You will need to be sponsored by an approved business.

Website above will help out estimate your cost of visa as well.

 

And whatever you do - don't fall for fraudulent companies who advertise the "golden pass" to Australia. I've had migrants enter Australia with little money, thinking they can just walk into a job. When they realize they have been conned and have little prospect of using their trade to work (need to get your certificates recognized in austral - $2000 - $3000), they end up in retail sector earning peasant money when they could be working as a doctors. One of the gentlemen who came into my area of work is now working as a night fill stocker for a supermarket.

Okay, noted. Good to hear that my degree will be of use.

 

I also agree with small towns near big cities. Very preferable for me.

"Input", if you want to hear the perspective of a European suffering the worst case of "southernhemispherism" well....

 

...I would count the "oddball" capital cities in:

 

- Perth, as it is "close" to Australias second coral-reef and Australias first European settlement

 

- Adelaide, for it's festivals, the German villages of the Adelaide Hills and the beach at Glenelg

 

- Darwin, just for it's tropical feel and the sunsets at Mindil Beach alone.

 

- Hobart. Never been but would love to see the mixture of rural Wales, ancient Antarctic forests and Mountains.

 

 

Sydney, Canberra or Melbourne are wonderful places too. Really, really unforgettable ones !

But Australia is far more than "just a strip of green on the east coast".

 

There is a "blob of green in the southwest" too. Full with ancient forests as it apparently grew on Antarctica before Gondwanaland broke apart.

A river near Albany/Western Australia is the oldest in the world, so the locals say.

 

Australia is a special place, for a non-Aussie. No matter which town you will choose to stay. I only wanted to say that -all- of it's capital cities are worth mentioning and looking into !!

Hidden in the summer for a million years "

Cory Bernardi is a c*nt of the highest order and I bet his new ultra conservative party will be called The Homophobe Party and I think he'll be savaged in parliament 24/7 and I f*cking hope so. I won't shed a tear nor will I give a f*ck if he is shot. :) also goes for Christensen and Abetz.

 

Policies. The ultra conservative way. Taking bets now

 

-hating homosexuals is a patriotic thing to do.

-teaching LGBT tolerance in schools is a treasonous offence.

-Christianity will and must be taught at all levels of education.

-Formation of the sexuality police

-Abortion is treason

-Use coal

-Being raped and getting pregnant is God's gift. (that's the conservative/evangelical saying).

-Australia first. Until Israel is mentioned then Israel first Australia second.

-Anti Zionism is now anti semitism and is punishable by treason.

-Israeli settlements and bulldozing Palestinian homes are a good thing. Palestine being a British Mandate was a leftist hoax.

-Zero net immigration

-Use more coal

-You can now only be Australian if you are white.

-Privatise all national assets

-Develop nukes.

-Sanction New Zealand over their stance on Israel.

-Abolish 18C

-Home owners with solar panels on their roofs are criminals and will be investigated.

-Use even more coal

-Ban wind energy

-Ban solar energy

 

Not gonna lie, these do sound like very ultra conservative policies, the same policies an ultra conservative like Cory the C*nt would establish. Let's hope his party fails :)
