Why do so many videos, like this one, have blurry panels on either side?

QUEEN'S CHRISTMAS MESSAGE 2015



If you cannot be bothered watching ( I quite understand ) the main
take away is that she has not changed her hair style since 1956 .

A Brisbane bicycle rider has recorded a blood alcohol content (BAC) reading more than six times the legal limit.

Police alleged he had a BAC of 0.321.
IMO if you ride a bike while drunk that is your business and anybody
who can ride a bike while that drunk deserves meritorious recognition .

'I thought it would be a laugh': Man fools authorities to get 'penis signature' on his driver's licence, passport and proof-of-age card... now he wants it legally recognised
Quote:
Jared Hyams has spent years fighting to have his signature recognised
The signature in the shape of a penis has appeared on his driver's licence
But Federal Government officials won't issue him with a passport with it
He is determined to use the signature on as many official documents as possible
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ecognised.html


But what started out as a bit of fun turned into a long battle
with government agencies to recognise his 'signature' as real.
Pictured is Mr Hyams's health care card

Indeed we do... though the race has become a status "thing" that brings in nouveau riche riff raff in recent years.

Not at all safe for work.

The mother thought she would post the video on facebook - she obviously didn't think it through as she announced her mobile phone number, name and address to the world.

The United Patriots Front , 30,000 supporters on Facebook




Quote:
Its leader Blair Cottrell has previously stated that every school in Australia
should hang a picture of Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler and every student have a
copy of his manifesto Mein Kampf.
Snort !

Quote:
In another post he wrote that women are "attracted to strength", and the
secret to keeping them faithful was to "care less about them and even crack
them around the ear every once in a while".



I am guessing you do not have a lot of Jewish women in
that party of yours Blair ?

Don't let Fartacus see this. It might be too much for him.

From snakes in toilet bowls to pythons in the rocks: The hilarious public warning signs that could only be found in Australia
Quote:
Signs regularly pop up all over the country that only make sense in Aus
A snake in a toilet bowl is one of the dangers that you may come across
Failing that, better keep a look out for the 'python in the rocks!'
But there's always the bees under the toilet seat to worry about too
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...Australia.html


At least the one good thing about this public toilet in Garie Beach
is if you find a snake in this toilet it's not venomous



In Mildura in Victoria it's not the snakes you have to worry about
it's the bees


A million tourists with their knees crossed as they carefully scrutinize *everything* in the restrooms *first*.

Another one to improve the quality of sleep for Fartacus.

Prehistoric-looking sea creature with razor sharp teeth washes up on the shore of an Australian lake - so what is it?
Quote:
Newcastle father Ethan Tipper snapped the sea creature near Swansea
The image has amassed over 1,6000 shares on social media
Commenters claimed it was photoshopped or captured somewhere else
Australian Museum fish expert Mark McGrouther believes it is a pike eel
He said it was the first time he had seen the creature wash ashore
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...Macquarie.html


Ethan Tipper snapped the mysterious creature on Lake Macquarie,
taking to social media to ask what it was

Signs of Mortgage Meltdown in Australia
Quote:
In Australia, which has the highest household debt in the world,
“homes are so expensive that nearly half of all mortgages are interest-only.”
They’re offered by the biggest banks with loosey-goosey lending standards.
And “that is a red flag for imminent disaster.”
Quote:
“It’s not a question of if but when there will be a mortgage crisis in
Australia,” explained Jonathan Tepper, CEO at research firm Variant
Perception,
Quote:
The flood of interest-only mortgages with sky-high price-to-income
ratios is “a sign of Ponzi financing,” he said. And banks are now heavily
exposed to these mortgages and any downturn in prices.
