  1. OK I heard A-League is coming back Keen for it Have been getting my football fix from promoting a 3.Liga club into the Bundesliga now. We've just finished sixth and I've signed Raheem Sterling and Saul on a free transfer, we just lost the European International Pre-Season Cup on penalties to Manchester United which wasn't great but oh well
  2. Hmmm I’ll have to disagree I don’t think it’s a technicality, it’s just how the standard of proof works If I got accused of punching someone in the face but I had a (credible) witness say that I was at some other place and another witness that swore he also saw me at that other place too, and I still got convicted, I’d be livid. If I have two people that swore I was at some other place and that somehow does not constitute a “reasonable doubt” to the plaintiff, what is a reasonable doubt? Unfortunately because it was just so long ago people’s memories could fade. Maybe the boy attendant was sick that Sunday and doesn’t remember. Perhaps that other guy that saw Pell on the steps got the year wrong. tbh that’s really likely because I struggle to remember important dates myself and these people pinpointing dates from 20 years ago perfectly? But they swore under oath and some people just have really good memories. Who is to say who is wrong? It’s very tough.
  3. I'm 97.5% sure the defence had a witness that literally said "I remember Pell being on the steps" on one of the days because he had some sort of story where his mum yelled at him so it was like imprinted in his memory
  4. Unrelated to the above posts: as part of this course I'm doing I need to do a module on sexual consent I thought, "Yeah whatever, just answer the questions like a normal person and just get it over with". Nope. It's extremely mentally taxing and really getting me down Thankfully I'm able to say that it's not because I have been abused or anything like that. Some of the modules are very 'what would you do in this situation' and they go on to talk about going back to dorm rooms, kissing, hooking up, getting contraception out, dancing at night clubs, and taking girls home... From a purely theoretical standpoint, I understand the rationale behind such questions. For me, I read that and all the times that happened to me at uni (i.e. zero) and all the emotions and all the failures and all the crap that happened in our Singles, Dating, and Relationships Thread... it all floods back. Not a great feeling unfortunately.
  5. I read the summarised judgement The High Court's decision was more high level over the evidence. It was basically, "Victim says X happened, however this attendant says he never left Pell's side, this other guy said he saw Pell outside, and there's a Catholic tradition that Pell is never left unattended after a service. Therefore, there should be reasonable doubt". I get it from a legal perspective and I understand why. My issue is that it doesn't look good when we have a jury trial and the High Court basically says, "Nope." My main issue however is that because he is George Pell, he can afford to take appeal after appeal until the High Court. If Joe Bloggs from Woop Woop got done for something similar, he'd run out of money before the first trial even finished. That is not fair.
  6. That's not really fair If the government writes crappy tax legislation that allows companies to deduct all sorts of things, is it really a company's fault for using it? Like this recent thing on the ABC where you can get ~$2,500 tax free. All you have to do is salary sacrifice $10k into super, then tell the ATO your job has been coronavirus affected, and then you can withdraw the $10k out again. You would only pay the 15% super tax rate. Do that once next month and because no one really gave much thought to it when writing the legislation, guess what? You can do the same thing again on July 1!
  7. Next time inform the Liberal government you’re an au pair to a wealthy donor family You’ll be put in the Park Hyatt penthouse or equivalent
  8. I think it’s pretty good! As it stands now I can get up from bed at 8.40 and be “on time” for work. The way I see it, working from home retrieves 3 hours of my day I spend commuting. For the social aspect, we have been assigned to teams which catch up daily by video link just to keep us connected and talking to someone daily.
  9. On the plus side, have taken the chance to jump into the stock market while prices have fallen $500 minimum parcel for your first purchase of any security is a bit steep to the first timer but... if it’s worth doing, it’s worth overdoing! Having the charts up on my screen at work and researching tips is surprisingly quite interesting
  10. I think so A Labor stimulus package would've been closer to what Rudd did - payments to families, no questions asked. None of this, "OK we will let you claim back the PAYG instalment for income tax for your March GST return. Oh by the way, you get that money late April. You don't know if you can stay in business for that long? Too bad buddy, we've legislated it".
  11. In the end, the fact that we have dense population centres that are far apart may save us.
  12. They may do what the EPL is doing and just postpone the games. We may be finishing this season later this year and start the next season as 2021-22
  13. That sucks to hear btron, hope it gets better for you soon This virus has come about so quickly and changed life so rapidly. It was only two weeks ago when we could all just traipse around freely and just over a month ago when toilet paper was bountiful in our supermarkets...
  14. I wonder if the rhetoric against “dole bludgers” will continue now that many more are in the unemployment benefits queue
