What? No Gok?
Just like walking down the night market in Hong Kong.
And ute is an abbreviation for utility or utility vehicle - also as common as blowies on ya barbie chop.
Esky is to drinks coolers as Xerox is to photocopiers… in Aus - never a reference to Eskimo.
Epic catch? Epic “CATCH”? Who the fuck wrote this? Besides, If you’re going to show a landmark footy moment, you’ve gotta put up Jezza’s mark, or Blight’s torpedo.
I call bullshit on this project. A gigantic scheme to flog overpriced merch. The pin will be pulled on this after some issue can’t be overcome (or it “runs out of money”)
Sums it up.
Sounds like the IOC is only taking passages from their
bible rule book, that they like.
How did this classic bubble wrap monster not make the list?
Spotted in our local supermarket freezer section…. I think someone was being a little mischievous…
Seriously Epic. Just epic. Fuck Masterchef - this is mother fucking Epic Chef!
Bad. Very Bad. I have somewhat a different view of these types of blogs. I have a young family member who is going through similar problems who has decided that telling the psych anything is more trouble than it’s worth. (time to find a new psych, but frankly, her parents need to see one too). She’s not yet seen the value in counselling yet and is constantly struggling with the desire to get better, with the desire to get worse. In occasionally viewing her equally disturbing tumblr blog, as well as lots of blogs that she re-blogs from, I’m convinced that it’s a bad…. very VERY bad thing. Part of this comes from a number of observations: 1. Some young people (mostly girls) seem to obtain a sense of community from those that contribute and reblog material - this sense of community, whilst saying the words “don’t do it”, continually pour out a massive stream of destructive and depressing images - almost exclusively in black and white to increase the sense of depression. It’s this community that also has the power to draw them back in too - they don’t want to lose this community, and all “promises” to shutdown are mearly re-naming the blogs which ensures they don’t lose any “followers”. The power of the follower pulling them back to the blog is so strong that I sure that the recovery from the depression is severely stunted. 2. The owners of these blogs invariably get to a point where they want to post images of their own scars or mutilations. They get off on the idea that it’s “art” (so many blogs suggest this). The crave reblogs. The more extreme… the more reblogs… the higher the distorted sense of achievement. The first images are often “tame” and garner minimal attention, but even a few reblogs of their own image gives them the idea to go a little further… I’ve seen this progression occurring before my own eyes. I’m not necessarily suggesting that this is a conscious thought pattern - perhaps it is. 3. There are numerous threats made about suicide throughout a lot of these depression blogs. Whilst this receives a suitable amount of “don’t do it”, you’re worth it, and other positive commentary, there’s a hell of a lot of trolling that goes on too. Some blogs publish their trolls - but because the threat to suicide has been made, the blogger will “agree” with the troller - which in turn generates even more traffic. Whilst there may be some people who get a sense of venting from the blog, and it’s a relief / outlet and are convinced it’s good for them - there are thousands of these blogs practically competing for attention. The sense of community and acceptance / encouragement almost they receive from these circles cannot possibly be a nett good thing. Some of the defining aspects of depression and suicide are the sense of isolation, the loneliness and the perceived lack of understanding from those people that matter to the person suffering. These blog “rings” address a lot of this, which makes them extremely difficult to extricate themselves from. Those most vulnerable and least “creative” have to find ways to get the attention from the masses. Bloggers need help - IMHO the blogs should be kept private like a diary if they feel the need to blog like this. Exposing tens of thousands of other mentally ill people to this and practically suggesting that it’s “normal” is going to draw out recovery or potentially prevent it.
4. Tesco’s beetroot is a UK product…. although the amount of beet bunged on the average barbie burger churns my stomach. Can’t stand the stuff. 16 & @Euro: the missus and I call each other sick cunts all the time… we’re both around 40… Bewdy Neuc!
