He's my favourite player of all time and I do have an overpriced photo of him kissing the 2008 Norm Smith medal on my wall but, yeah, that deserves a laugh on a number of levels. Not only the obviously wrong headline (to be fair though he did "retire" at the end of 2017) but the painting itself...
Yeah, it might be coincidence but I did note in the first few episodes there was no proper intro.
And Trevor Murdoch is deadset awesome. You can picture him working in Mid-South Wrestling before doing a 10 week tour of All-Japan Pro Wrestling.
I watch it on Thursdays so tonight is wrestling night at Casa Brookes.
One thing I've noticed is they're fixing up little things that needed to fixed up as they go. I really didn't like the lack of real ring introductions but in last week's episode, they started announcing home towns and...
Playing devil's advocate. If you're above the speed limit, you are by definition, not a law abiding citizen.
While I agree it's crazy marijuana is illegal, this isn't the police's fault. That's the politicians that cling on to their "drugs are bad" mentality.
And plenty of climate change...
Here's the kicker for me. You've just described every Christian fundamentalist. And every Jewish fundamentalist. And every Hindu fundamentalist.
Maybe the pattern becomes apparent. I'll put my cards on the table. I'm atheist, so is my son. But his best friend is Muslim. I really hope in time...
And who has been attacking synagogues. Yes, some of the attacks have been perpetrated by migrants from the Middle East but the vast majority have been by right wing extremists. The current Hungarian government has been overt in its antisemitism. Politicians in Germany are overtly antisemitic...
Chief, it's a video worth watching.
I totally agree with your point re: trolls coming up with rubbish claims being a pain. But denying them the right to speak can often embolden (embiggen?) trolls. It's a two edged sword and I don't envy your job as an admin. But I'd rather the garbage be...
See the issue is, the opportunity to commit the crime at the time alleged DOES exist. As I pointed out, there are cases where Christian brothers have been found guilty and admitted to abuse in full classrooms. To me this has been one of the fundamental flaws in Pell's defence.
I'd rather people who hold terrible ideas be free to express them so those ideas can be shot down with logic and reason.
This video goes to some length to explain the difference between hate speech and incitement/harassment.
What makes you hold that view Bruce?
I wasn't at the court case but I'm sure the whole, "it couldn't have happened" defence was put to the test. I do know the jurors toured the cathedral, entered the sacristy - geez, I'm guessing the robes were brought out and tried on.
Someone with better...
Well. so much for the anti-Catholic bias some have been claiming. He now gets his third go at proving his innocence.
BTW - surely the whole "it was impossible" that it happened line of logic is now dead. There are convicted paedophiles who were abusing children in full class rooms.
Just on the Olympics. A bunch of sports no-one here gives a toss about until an Australian is a half decent chance of winning.
I'd rather my tax dollars NOT go to supporting it. If the commercial networks reckon there's money it, then go for it.
So did anyone see Media Watch last night? Paul Barry was unequivocal in his condemnation of the episode. He noted there should have been dissenting voices to shoot down the obvious bad ideas.
He also quite rightly pointed out the ABC should have left the episode up, so it could be debated.
