Honestly, I don't think there is going to be a huge swing in the mid terms.
The Democrats have spent the last two years pandering to their own base, so everyone thinks that there is this huge momentum swing away from Trump when in reality its just the confirmation bias of their own echo chamber.
I hope I am wrong
Hmm, not according to my info, but I hope you're wrong too?
Another 2 years of #45 will do my head in...let alone scomo.

This sport lull between the end of the AFL grand final and the start of the cricket season is just the worst. I mean I can pretend as well as anyone to enjoy the baseball and EPL, but if you can’t go to games it’s not really the same. There’s only so many times I can rewatch the grand final (7 so far).

It's strange because its not as if there isn't an abundance of sport going on right now
Soccer - A-League, EPL, UEFA etc...
MLB Playoffs
NFL
NBA, NBL
Spring Racing (if you consider Horse Racing a sport)
Cricket - Overseas Tours
F1, V8s, MotoGP, NASCAR
NHL
(some of these are who gives a fu**, but there aren't many stages of the year where this many leagues are running)

It's almost one of the most concentrated times of the year for sport, yet the most boring

You’re right happy there’s heaps to watch, but if you’re a live sport kind of guy there’s not much, apart from the Wildcats I guess?
Perth Glory too

AFLW starts soon doesn't it?

Personally I won't get behind it until the Eagles get a team, it doesn't feel right to support another team even if it's their women's version.

I'm actually going to the cricket this weekend for some reason.

I'm disappointed in myself that my first ever trip to Optus is for the cricket

What’s the deal with monthly pay? Never heard of it in my life
Monthly pay is a rollercoaster of feeling poor or oddly rich. The trick is not to spend stupidly when you get your pay each month. I know a few people who can't handle monthly pay because they just don't budget properly.

campaigners I just bought Zelda Breath of the Wild for my Wii U... and it’s basically the first video game I’ve bought for a long time, and it’s just absolutely bloody magnificent.

I wish I was 15 again so I could just get high af and play it all day and all night

I just spend it all on blow and then suffer for the next 29-30 days.

DanWCE has to budget in his blow, Crafties and baby formula.
