So that's what on after Border Security, that Psychic TV rubbish. IF they were genuine, they'd should be ringing people first, as they should say "I'm a psychic & you were going to ring our show" & they should know & etc, etc. Interesting how so called psychics claim they knew XYZ was going to happen AFTER it happens.

Of course I didn't watch it.

• Opal not refunding the overcharged part of my fare. I call that theft.

Television in general has turned into rubbish, MKR in particular. Thank god for DVD's, I am enjoying DVD's of The Wonder Years (picked up from the local library)

Watching the Montague Street bridge claim another truck, is finding out the height of a vehicle too difficult

most of the garbage that passes for TV.a usual night if I AM AT HOME consists of millionaire hot seat,then I SWITCH ELSEWHERE FOR AN EPISODE OF FRIENDS(6PM TO 6:30PM,11'S NEIGHBOURS 6:30PM TO 7PM and have found myself watching either old sitcoms or food network at that time of night afterwards.the garbage that exists at 7pm leaves a lot to be desired.I don't watch nonsense like home and away or a current affair nor do I care for the project(I read a morning paper to get my news).

I never watched MKR because of these contestants arguing and picking on other people. The audience numbers will eventually drop every passing year or so due to people losing interest.
During the summer, I have been inundated with relentless I'm A Celebrity promos. This happened during the overs break of the Big Bash League season. Julia Morris was a loud mouth bully, Dr Chris Brown is painful to be on a reality show - he should stick to being a vet. These incessant sneak peaks of Underbelly Madness annoyed me too much. Every promo I see them play on TV, I cover my face up.
The Project - how is this show even on air?? Walled, Carrie and Peter were the presenters on the show. Walled Aly - a massive pain in the bum - he continued to argue towards interviewees. Carrie Bickmore - used to watch her on show but now she's gone worse - making a lot of things up. Peter helliar - cannot stand him because he tries too hard to be funny and that his voice made my ears bleed. I used to watch The Project but I've given up this show in 2014.

No wonder Australia has problems with colds & or flu on cruise ship, trains &/or planes.

Passengers that cough &.or sneeze without covering their mouth &/or nose, especially when they are right under a sign stating "Cover your cough or sneeze please". I'd hate to be passengers on the ship or plane he went going on. With that cough, a person should be prevented from going on a ship or plane.

Nuh, when he got off, I just did what he did & coughed on him!

I overheard him as did all the carriage say that he's going to New Zealand to do blah blah blah. I doubt he would have gone on a cruise ship, as he didn't have enough luggage.

Now seriously, if I was a customs or whatever official, & I heard him cough like he did, I'd question his fitness to travel & may not have let him board. I must have told him a dozen times, yet he still refused. I hope I don't get a cold due to this filthy person that sat right under a "Cover your cough or sneeze please" sign. I even showed this filthy disease carrying person the sign. This filthy person is spreading his germs over everyone else. :x

I know this may almost sound sexist, but I've noticed that the vast majority of offenders in this category are blokes (of all ages). Doesn't matter where they are, they'll still let it out with any consideration to those around them, or even folks walking through the airspace they've coughed in.

I hope this doesn't trigger a flurry of adverse reactions like one comment on another forum regarding 'nature' did not that long ago. But if it does, stiff...

Turnbull banning ministers from having relationships. How about keeping out of other people's business, or people learning to keep their professional and personal lives separate. Social media can make it hard, but people should just forget that and use their heads.

Those yellow minions would run the country better than he is.

Sorry but I agree with Turnbull's move and it is long overdue. It is obviously a kneejerk reaction to the damage this saga has done to the government, but politicians should be subject to the closest scrutiny. We want to know what sort of man is making important decisions for all of us and our futures and we don't want people getting favoured with publicly funded positions because they are sleeping with them, not to mention the potential for blackmail and conflict of interest. Nationals themselves have stated the affair has led to internal disfunction in the office. Do we want that with the day to day running of the nation? No, politicians are happy to display their family to gain votes, they should be made to fully disclose their betrayal of that family as well. Great move from Malcolm.

The weirdest Adelaide weather observation I've noticed to date. You'll only understand it if you've been on a Newton SL202 waiting for it to get to a mere 60kph. Referring to the 25th.

Louts bouncing a basketball in the middle of a shopping centre, almost smashing a shop window. Security seemed to be too busy chatting up the girls on the customer service desk. I did report it to centre management and they were to follow it up.

I don't watch a lot of these shows nowadays because it gets so monotonous when Home and Away, ACA and The Project was still on air for years now. I used to watch a lot of FTA Australian TV these days, but as time progresses by, some of my favourite shows were no longer here. I stopped watching TEN a while ago when the Big Bash League finished.
Imagine if Carrie Bickmore's constant unfunny jokes came out of her, with special comments from Waleed Aly, Peter Helliar. I stopped watching The Project years ago because of the dribble. This was surely the worst nightmare that I've had on TV.

10/11 in our home only exists for news and neighbours plus sometimes frasier these days and if lucky some will and grace.other than that i gave up on it ages ago.whoever decided in the nineties that the bold and the beautiful is suitable as after school viewing is an idiot.it is all well and good to take the kids to the playground in the summer months but for the rest of the year for those below high school level it's a farce.unless you have pay tv or watch abc me the stuff that exists between 4pm and 5pm these days leaves a lot to be desired.

Add to this those Dyson Airblade hand dryers... Not only do they spit water back at your face (YUCK!), but the opening for one's hands is much too small even for a skinny rake like me - so you get to touch a surface the rest of the great unwashed (particularly those who just rinse their hands, not WASH them) have touched and ruin your hand washing.

Thankfully a number of establishments have installed Dyson hand-dryers that take the shape of a more conventional hand dryer. Much more hygienic.

Whilst the revs can be entertaining, is it really necessary for a bus driver to do 77kph in a 60 zone, and 63kph in a 50 zone just to make up time?

Premier Madys Bera-trick-lian explaining that the selling off of Meadowbank Primary school to parasite bludger developers and transferring it to take up part of the Meadowbank TAFE site, fits in with their programme of TAFE downsizing, like there is nothing untoward about it.

What? Labor asleep or something?
