  1. Langer has been a disaster. Sadly he is not the only one. Under his leadership our cricketers have become politically correct and forgotten how to play cricket. More important to take a knee and embrace BLM than play cricket. Bunch of girly men. I am looking forward to a lot of resignations from the cricket board down and a completer clean out of the team. I can not remember being so angry and ashamed of an Australian cricket team.
  2. What a bunch of overpaid wankers. I hope they did not think they were representing Australia. I am beyond disgusted. Broncos are losing, our cricketers have turned into a bunch of sissy girls. I have no alternative but to get to know my kids and talk to my wife.
  3. “Well, Hitler did a lot of good things.” Well he did!!! So did Trump. Biden on the other hand is a train wreck in progress.
  4. Is there any site you recommend for trading Bitcoins - which is not a scam?
  5. Interesting that the TGA was able to give approval to the Pfizer Covid vaccine after only some superficial testing but was never able to approve Ropren which was tested and tested successfully for years. I intend to keep my worthless SLA shares. The money is not important. What is important is that Vagif successfully treated my wife's cancer with Ropren and she has been in remission ever since. Forever grateful.
  6. Rod, I was unaware. Thanks for the advice.
  7. LOL - I still have 1.5 Mill laying about going nowhere.
  8. You realize off course, that while Trump was no Einstein, Biden is going to be much worse and much more dangerous.
  9. Agree with you about the chips. But it is not only the chips, but the quality of graduates produced by the Universities. Sadly over the years I have witnessed a dumbing down of our graduates. Our education system is flawed and needs to be fixed. The quality of students coming out of our high schools is laughable. Bunch of first years starting uni in the next few weeks. Will be interesting to see how this bunch of Covid graduates stacks up with last years mob.
  10. I have always thought of Paine as a stand in captain. People said he is the captain we had to have after Smith but I think now he is past his use by date. We should have won the last test, but for mediocre captaincy and poor use of our bowlers.
  11. Got to tell you - I am starting to worry. The Indians are playing like test cricket should be played. Good on them!! Engrossing match.
  12. The selectors are not picking the best players. They seem to have fallen into the old British mentality, that unless you went to Oxford, Cambridge, Eton or Harrow you had no chance of making the team. We have a lot of good players just waiting in the wings but for some reason or other are not being picked. Seems Langer et al are not picking the best players but the players they like. "Team" men not good players. Guys who fit into the team, not the players who will make the other players uncomfortable or show them up. Camaraderie is more valued than skill. It also seems to me that once you get picked in the team it is almost impossible to be dropped. IMHO, from the captain down there are half a dozen guys in the team who should be given a long or permanent holiday. I like the look of Cameron Green. Is it too early to call him a future Australian captain?
  13. IMHO Burns will not play test cricket again. Unless off course, he is one of Langer's buddies.
  14. That would have been my grandson who demands we pay him $50 to take the rubbish bin out for the garbage truck. Lazy sod - spends most of his time playing games on the computer.
  15. bg99, You forgot to say the models do not include the massive release of methane gas in the Siberian Tundra. Methane is much more dangerous than C02. Which according to your logic means the models are under-forecasting by a further significant margin. MY point is the models are just plain wrong - whatever they include. They can't predict tomorrows weather accurately and we are supposed to accept their predictions for 10, 20,30 or more years into the future. Also I can not fathom the reasoning of people like you, who believe in the model, but also accept the simplistic assumption that a Government carbon tax will miraculously fix the problem. LOL. You realize that once that tax becomes law it will never be removed. There will always be a climate change. Climate change will be another certainty like death and taxes. Must be a generation thing. My wife and I are close to 80. We call it weather and have seen it all. Cyclones, massive flooding, beach erosion, heat, drought, bush fires and anything else you want to name. It is just weather but some young reporter or expert who has not lived for more than a few decades calls every Climate Change. Got to agree with Mork and Mags and anybody else who is a climate change skeptic. Get a few more decades of life experience before you become an expert on climate and rubbish other peoples opinions.
