Re: Now for something completely different

82 seconds. During that prac I referred to, which was 11 years ago, I could do 125 or ever 154 when hyperoxygenating (face mask oxygen) for the three breaths.

I'm definitely fitter now than I was back then, but this seemed a lot harder! :/

Re: Budget cuts

Social Welfare is a complex system. Obviously there are direct payments for certain groups, for example, single parents, that could be cut or removed. However, there is also a large number of less direct payments such as discounts for public transport for pensioners. Just wondering if you would targ...

Take your hands off you keyboard and relax. Take two deep breaths, then take a third as deep and you can and hold. Start the stopwatch. Stop t...

Re: What are you currently playing?

I finished Bioshock Infinite but will decline to go on to Burial at Sea.

I'm back to Tales of Xillia after a brief departure to The Walking Dead

Budget cuts

So currently in Australia, like many places around the world, the focus is on "budget cuts". Obviously generating a lot of debate/hysteria.

So if you were in control of your country's budget, what area would you cut and why?

Re: What are you currently playing?

I also guess with Valve starting to put in region locking for games on steam to stop people in cheaper economic area's and selling them to others via trade is going to kick Australia in the balls a bit. Valve is actually doing that?! :O Indie games are still reasonably priced, though, right? As far...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Australia is the bitch of the marketplace. It has even been raised in Australian Parliament, including hauling Apple/Adobe etc in for questioning, but no one will actually do anything about it until the public stops paying top dollar like a pack of rabid fanboys. The excuses are typical crap - small...

Re: What are you currently playing?

Did you play the previous Bioshock games? I'm thinking of playing Infinite as well but I haven't done the other two. No I haven't, I didn't hear good things about the second one but have only had a constant stream of positive reviews from sources I trust for Infinite, so at $35 (which for Australia...
