  1. I pay $7 a schooner at my regular in Canberra.
  2. Ouch! Canberra is an awesome place to live. Many live theatre options. A thriving poetry scene. The major opera companies come here. National folk festival, National Gallery, National library, kayaking, mountain biking, wonderful restaurants, large university student population, highest average income, highest education levels etc etc. Every weekend I’m drowning in options. So many I’m usually up at 4:30am to make the most of the day. My favourite is the wilderness area on the side of Canberra that links to other National Parks that has a cumulative area roughly similar
  3. No way. That’s a really unusual view. I’ve lived in the US and have married an English woman and have spent a bit of time in England. Australians are like cousins to the English, Americans are a very distant relative. For many Australians, one way for us to realise how similar we are to the Brits is if we’re in a room with a Brit and then an American then joins in.
  4. We might not be able to leave Australia freely until next year
  5. When i visited England I went up north and to the capital. If i had to choose a place to actually live i'd pick up north every single time.
  6. It’s all context. I’ve been called “Australian [insert insult]” in the UK. Most of it is just vulgar banter which I’m fine with..... but it’s very clear when someone has genuine malicious intent. I’m still not that fussed but if it came from someone with power over people like me either currently or historically I’d be angry. but that’s more bigotry and not racism.
  7. Faggots Scotch egg chips and curry sauce I’ve never seen these in Australia.
  8. For Canberra to play in Sydney it’s a minimum of 3 hours sitting still on a bus for a professional athlete. We’d be at an advantage if we didn’t have to go to Sydney all the time. Flying elsewhere will keep us fresh for the game.
  9. It’s 3 to 4 hours travel time on a bus from Canberra to the stadium in Sydney. It’s around 1 hour travel time on a plane to Brisbane, Gold Coast or Melbourne. The players are generally always more refreshed when they travel from Canberra by plane as they aren’t sitting in a small seat for hours on end.
  10. Interesting https://www.news.com.au/sport/nrl/secret-dossier-reveals-bombshell-nrl-conference-system-revolution/news-story/a613270973716ffb8a4c8702d3d94633 The two conference system would include a Sydney-based conference and a conference made up of the teams outside Sydney. The proposal includes the nine clubs in each conference playing each other twice, and playing the clubs in the other conference once — expanding the season to a 25-game home-and-away competition. It will also result in an overhaul of the finals system with the proposal outlining plans to have the best
  11. I rewatched Se7en over the weekend. It hasn’t aged at all. It’s still a fantastic movie with great pacing.
  12. I’m down 9kg since January. Pretty happy about that!
  13. I suspect quite a few players won’t even know all the rules. I guess we all start at the beginning when we do something new and they’ll learn eventually.
  14. It would have worked. The moguls will be back eventually.
  15. It’s a variation of the US sports league culture in a European environment. Quite the culture clash. If the English clubs are banned from the EPL, I can see the TV rights value plummeting and the remaining clubs making less money. TV companies may also sue if the most watched teams are banned from playing in their current competitions.
