What doesn't give you the S&#T's, or make you Happy?

Postby noofnoof » Wed Nov 02, 2011 7:41 pm

This thread is dedicated to those things that don't anger you, or make you happy. Maybe they just made you think, made you laugh, or made you sad.
I'm concerned with the narrowing of human emotion, that's why this thread.

First up:
me and 5 mates sitting around the TV watching question time in Parliament.
was interesting that 6 teenagers would sit down, shut up, and engage in politics of their own free will.

Maybe this thread could be renamed by the OP to 'What Made Your Ponder, Today?'

Nice idea, BTW!

I remember reading somewhere that Parliament Question Time usually attracts an audience of pre schoolers watching it while they are waiting for Play School to start.

Unofficial Parliament theme song



I can just imagine Julia Gillard saying "Hello children, we are going to have a big blue in Parliament today"

This thread confuses me.

That is all.
I just wish we could all get along like we used to in Middle School, I wish that I could bake a cake made of rainbows and smiles and we'd all eat it and be happy.

Okay, so maybe we're getting a little confused here.
You're meant to mention something that's happened, and then at least a sentence on what you feel about this, and why.
As I was typing that, I realised it sounded a little gay. It's just expressive. This IS NOT "What made you laugh".

A certain member on a certain other forum, I'm getting quite stressed over a certain inaction towards member.

There's a new thread in the Perth/WA section wholly devoted to the misplacement of bus fleet numbers which quite perplexes me........... :?: :shock:

I've been pondering why a certain board member has issues with me ending my posts with the word 'Cheers!'. Is there a law against this?

Cheers! <----------------------Read that carefully!!!

Australia's population, the government really as no plan.

That and reducing carbon levels in the air, I concluded 4 things:
1. The government again have no idea
2. We could bury the problem
3. We could change how we look at the problem, plan stuff for the future's technology not today's
4. Make things more efficient
Explain your reasoning for putting the slowest, worst bus on the longest route. Surely it'd be more efficient to have a newer one. Where's my 8 speed M.A.N?

I'm pondering why my ADSL modem has disconnected itself twice today, thankfully not while surfing. Bad phone line, since it crackles a bit when using the phone????

Cheers!

P.S. Responses welcome!

Try unplugging everything except the phone off from line. If There is still crackle lodge a fault with your phone provider.
if not come back to us.

I know my neighbors had a massive crackle which indicated a line fault , that caused frequent dropouts and low sync speed.

Do you have an ADSL filter on the phone line?

It's just connected via a splitter (sorry, not a tech wizard when it comes to computers...)

Splitter should be the same as a filter, I think.

I'm not the best at Telecommunication technology either.

It is.

Dick Smith sell filters for $20... that would be the easiest way to test if that is the cause, unless you have a spare one or a friend's that you can snaffle to test.

Splitter\filter jiggers can cause problems, we had a similar issue on our phone line, a new splitter\filter jigger solved the problem.

Curse you Schweppes Australia, and your ingenious plan to make me engage with your brand, in the hope of winning T-Shirts, which also happen to be plastered with the brands of your beverages that I had to buy to enter this accursed competition.
