  1. Fmd. When I hear of various industries putting there hand out for bailouts I get livid. Airlines that haven't paid tax in over a decade with executives making 50k a day, and now the childcare centres asking for money. Yeezus, those centres onwers have been gutting families for years. How many poorly run enterprises have been just licking their lips at the possibility of passing the buck on incompetency is amazing. Let's debate...
  2. I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say that teachers will be getting a significant pay rise after this self isolation period. If you're home schooling or remote learning right now I'm sharing your pain.
  3. Fell on Black Days.... is that the one with super heavy d tuning at the start?
  4. Ahhh. Chris Cornell..... I'm thinking maybe more Soundgarden - Jesus Christ Pose.
  5. I can't do Coldplay.... but I am willing to throw in Keane - Somewhere only we know, and maybe Snow Patrol - Run..... Coldplay reminds me of an ex, and if I'm gonna die, it aint gonna be with that bit*h in my head.
  6. Putting my Armageddon soundtrack together now for the inevitable moment I have to drive out of the city ala a scene from Escape from New York because let's face it, my wife will refuse to drive. Who wants to help complete it for me? So far I've got some eclectic choices.... REM - Orange Crush, Tool - Aenima, America - Ventura Highway, Smashing Pumpkins - 1979, Starship - We built this city, Depeche Mode - Personal Jesus, Nirvana - Milk it, Who wants to help.
  7. News from the front line. My wife got let go from her job on Thursday. She was on probation and had only been at the business 7 weeks, after making the move from a larger, more stable global brand. Yesterday she recieved an email from the business stating they didn't feel they could redistribute her work laptop, so it would be better for all if she would agree to buy it at a depreciated cost and have that deducted from her severence! That's right folks.... someone who hasn't paid out your severance entitlements trying to force a sale of their asset on you. F'n lowlifes. Emailed the CFO and told him to arrange immediate collection of their asset, and if he wants to pull another stunt like that, or without my wifes entitlements I'll notify ASIC of my suspicions that they are trading insolvent. My point. A lot of businesses will collapse during this pandemic. Be careful people as some will not have enough cash to operate for another few weeks. Good news, my wife picked up a new job yesterday with Google.
  8. Lady down the street has 5 kids - 2 of which are foster children. Her normal weekly shop is the equivalent to current panic buying. She needs to factor providing over 150 meals per week at her house. With 5 kids and 2 adults they go through 12 toilet rolls a week. She says they've had days of going through 3 loaves of bread alone. She said she's been verbally abused twice this week. She's resorted to taking all the kids shopping.
  9. Is it a coincidence that Aldi's special buys this week are camping equipment, tents and portable fridges! I think not.
  10. Mate. Things got wild when they started replacing Haas with Shepard Avocados at the metro. That made me sit up and start taking this poor people flu seriously.
  11. I envisage a lot of range rovers are gonna hit the market soon.
  12. I'm hearing the events industry is on the brink of collapse. If you're a casual employee or work for a service based industry reliant on any form of attendence you're in trouble. Creatives such as photographers, designers, etc. are starting to be sent home without pay in some cases being told to "hold out". I think we're also going to see this "entrepreneurial" bubble of business fall over overnight, as many of these models don't account for crisis.
  13. FMD. We clear the ball like 9 year olds. So frustrating..... and can we please stop heading the ball back to opposition feet.
  14. Pulling out the golden Force majeure on point 1 no doubt.
  15. Waiting for the post match comments on how the cold contributed to the loss. #jaded
