Woah another post how presumptuous of me...LOL
Well I said there was a big one coming... Some things have happened over the last week that are all good, and need to be blogged...LOL. I got a new better paying job with Optus cable, YES....heheh. It is where Fiona is already working. Awesome. So I am moving there as one of my Mates is moving here...ah well... On to other things, one of our clients bought the website from us, and I got annual leave so that I can go to LRP, and with the new job I am more likely to have weekends off so I can go to LRP and LAN's woohoo...
Anyway, I should do as I promised and post Saturday Scruples!
1. A good friend confesses he's HIV positive. He's terrified to tell his spouse. Do you?

Hmm this is a difficult one, if I know he may endanger his wife’s life then there is no way I wouldn't tell her, if he is worried for her safety and is just scared to lose her then that is understandable, still I would pressure him to be honest as soon as possible.

2. You need one number to win the jackpot at BINGO. The stranger beside you also needs one number and its been called. Do you tell her?

Hmm I was never very good at bingo, get distracted to easily, if I have one number left to win them I am surprised there still calling the draw... I probably wouldn't notice she had one number left, let alone that I had one left... but yeah I would tell her.

3. The taxi driver you get at 2 a.m. is drunk and driving recklessly. After he gets you home shaken but in one piece, do you report him?

YES, wtf does this happen? yikes I know some of them are bad, some of them can't drive for shit and a lot of them are just the biggest ahole drivers, but some get drunk ffs, I would ask him to stop if I suspected that and call and report him the moment I saw him drive away, I don't care what his circumstances are there is no excuse to endanger his own life, my life and the lifes of pedestrians.

Well that’s another Saturday scruples done... Sorry bout the rant. More to follow, my site may go down for a bit as I move to my new job as the hosting I am currently using is at WDS (the company I currently work for) so I will either move it to free hosting or host it myself...

Weekly Website
Well I didn't have one last week so I'll have to have two this week, besides these are funny. First off the bat is

The Amazing AngelGrinderMan

Spiel: "This is the Web-Site of Angle-Grinder Man, the U.K.’s first wheel-clamp and speed camera vigilante cum subversive superhero philanthropist entertainer type personage."

Favourite Quote: "*Footnote: This, of course, does not include Tony Blair who I have seen with my own eyes, turning water into wine and healing sick children, whilst holding the finger-tips of each hand, against those of the other, in the ‘raised steeple’ gesture and smiling piously. Amen."

My Thoughts: We don't really have too many wheel clamps in Australia as far as I am aware, but his dislike of the government (some who is theoretically answerable to us) making money of us is good, and his satirical humour is very good.

Conclusion: Meh I can see the reasons for a wheel clamp and speed some cases (speaking from someone who a few weeks ago got booked) but then again using at as a revenue spinner is just plain wrong. If someone is dangerously speeding or has like parked in an ambulance spot then yeah fine book there arse to kingdom come, but speeding up to the speed limit just up the road in a safe manner that is stupid. "When will they learn the system doesn't work"

Next Website of the week:

EbaumsWorld Soundboards

Spiel: "All I can say is that it seems as though making prank phone calls are back in style. I am overwhelmed by the people who request these calls every day."

Favourite Quote: what else could I pick but "English MotherF^(
My Thoughts: Awesome sight, brilliant idea, everyone at work was joking that they wanted to use this on a call to a customer, of course the Jack Nicholson soundboard would be best for this, anyway, it is an awesome Idea...LOL

Conclusion: Not really useful for me as I would never aid or abet a prank call "how come there are no fat people in your infomercials...*uproarious laughter*", "The number you have dialled is incorrect, please check the number and dial again...*uproarious laughter again*" LOL

Well onto a bit of a post I said it was gonna be a long one...
Happy Birthday for the 22nd Mum. I had to go to tafe but went to mums Friday night to celebrate.

Fiona's birthday was on the 23rd, it was awesome, we got to sleep in ahhh sleepppp... then got up and took her to Symbio Zoo. A different kind of Zoo than most people are used to, you get a lot closer to the animals, got to feed the Kangaroos and emus... and Fiona got to hold the squirmy little wombat. Damn Seppos (USA peeps) one pointed to a Koala in a tree and went look (insert Childs name here) I think it was Dianna, but that could be the taint of what Fiona and I get called by them, how do you get Dianna from Fiona, better yet Bob from Morgan... and they don't say Di-anna, they say it anywho she said to her kid look a Wombat...I was was funny though, poor Fiona was so jumpy, a Deer sneezed and Fiona jumped about 3 feet in the air...LOL and several other incidents similar...LOL... I mercilessly made fun of her later, unfortunately I was in ribbing distance and got several jabs in the ribs, well worth it though :P
It was very cool, I'll put some photos up in the Jaunts section asap.

On tafe holiday's finally, yay, only two weeks and one of that is Optus training ah well I'll get there...
Well better rap this up before I get rsi from typing,
Peace out all.
Haven't posted in ages, so get ready for a mamoth post, got so much to catch up on.
There is a saturday scruples needs doing and a weekly website but it is late and I am not sure I should be seeing little black spots at the corner of my eye, I am just gonna post one thing, I'll let Richard think of how to title/reference it.

Peace out all.

Saturday Scruples! 1. The pregnancy has been confirmed, but you're both single and in school. You're not ready to become parents. Do you arrange an abortion?

I myself am male...der, so it would be impossible for me to say do this do that, it really depends on what she wants to do, yeah in this scenario I'm in school whoop de doo, people used to be like 14 when they had kids, I would support her either way...But not being trailer park trash (I kidd I kidd) I wouldn't get into this situation.

2. You're playing badminton with a very competitive person. You discover s/he has a disability, a blind spot. Do you take advantage?

No, heheh I can sympathise with this, I used to play squash with my dad all the time, he has a blind spot... anywhere in front of his face...LOL, no I wouldn't take advantage I wouldn't even think about it.

3. In the middle of your evaluation, your boss is called away. Your personnel file is left open. Do you glance at it?"

I don't think anyone can honestly say they wouldn't sneak a quick peek if they knew they wouldn't get caught, seriously, besides the fact that it is law in Australia that you are allowed to see your personnel feet up and have a read :P

Not much else to say, going to a LAN on Saturday...awesome...WLF here I come, trying to decide between Upgrading my home network to gigabit or changing r2d2 over to a Dual 1.3ghz machine, so difficult these choices life gives us...LOL
Peace out all.

Saturday Scruples
Firstly, why does it say on Saturday scruples website; that it was posted on the 5th of September...that isn't a Saturday. what the...? Anyway onto the post.

1. Your bicycle has been stolen. At the police station you're shown an identical bike that isn't yours. Do you claim it?

Hell no, besides my current bicycle is pretty crappy and I would have pity on the other person that lost there’s...But I have been in this situation, back in my schooling days (except then it wasn't a bike)... and I did then what I would do know, I would say yeah that is the same as mine, but that one isn't mine, that one belongs to some other unfortunate soul...LOL

2. You're standing on a corner. Someone in a car smiles and waves at you. You don't have a clue who this person is. Do you smile and wave back?

Probably I do it myself so often that I would have to the amount of times I have waved at someone or said hello to someone who I am sure was someone I knew only to realise moments later after I have got a better look at them, that I don't know them at all... do unto others..and all that... mustn't make them realise there stupidity as i would want them to do to me...heheh

3. You're buying a car from someone who has lost his job and needs to sell. Do you offer much less than it's worth?

No, no and no, obviously if they have lost there job I don't want to add to their stress levels, I would offer them what the car is worth to me, and what I can afford there losing there job would have little impact, that being said I purchased a laptop from someone online and they wanted 1500 for it I knew they he wasn't in the best of circumstances and so as to secure the auction win I emailed the guy and offered 1600, aren't I a, but that isn't the point I try and treat others as I would like to be treated and I try to be fair and equal, not much more you can ask for...

Happy fathers Day to all the Dads out there, going to see Dad tonight.
Well peace out all.
