  1. It wasn't just the media that Facebook blocked. FB blocked Government websites, various State Government Health Departments (during a pandemic), the Bureau of Meteorology, Local businesses including law firms, Support pages for various people like victims of domestic abuse and so on. Facebook went mental and FB had to re-instate some of these pages. Facebook reinstating health and safety pages but government says damage to reputation has been done. https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02-18/facebook-credibility-brought-into-question-health-emergency-news/13166318
  2. If you didn't spend the money on back up generators, satellite dish for communications, built a fireplace, chopped wood and prepped for food for months on end, then it's your own damn fault. Personal responsibility folks.
  3. Some YouTube comments. Texans are now learning that water can be a solid. Knowledge is powerful. Republicans have always wanted America to return to the glory days of the 1800s. Congrats, objective achieved Q: What did Texas use before candles? A: Electricity
  4. Facebook appears to have banned it's own page. LOL. I just checked and it's true. Bwahahaha.
  5. If you're getting your news from Facebook then you're doing it wrong. This is a good thing. In reality, it's a case of Facebook having a tantrum and the Australian Government isn't budging one inch. But it is funny to see Facebook cancel a country and wipe out everything.
  6. Facebook just cancelled Australia globally with any and ALL news from Australia regardless of what that 'news' may be. Whether it be blogs, government agencies - EVERYTHING. LMAO.
  7. Monster Hunter with Milla Jovovich. Diabolical.
  8. Been doing quite a bit of research. The solar panel company that we're going with was just here running through the numbers. We didn't need a big inverter system and we don't have a lot of roof space so went with what we have. It's a $5000 system and will pay itself off in 3 1/2 years. We'll be going ahead and saving 75% off our electricity costs. Will be good to pay around $100 per quarter (approx $30 per month) instead of $450 per quarter for our electricity.
  9. Overestimated and overrated are my thoughts about this project. Don’t expect anything close to being good lol
  10. Finished watching For All Mankind. This was great. It's an alternate timeline where the Russians get to the moon first and the space race doesn't end and eventually both Americans and Russians have a moon base each. A lot of historical footage used from the likes of JFK, Nixon and Ted Kennedy. They play on how the Russians had the first man in space as well as the first woman in space. The woman aspect is well done with the Americans playing catch up. And then it turns to the race to get a base on the moon first. The science is pretty accurate, even with the ice on the moon.
  11. Wow. I just looked at our electricity bill and for the last quarter (90 days), we used 1241.8 kWh. In two months, you would use more than what we use in a year. My gf and I often think we use too much electricity and looking at solar panels to offset our electricity.
  12. You know you’re in trouble with COVID when you have to lift air quality restrictions to allow more cremations. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/covid-19-backlog-bodies-cremation-limits-suspended-california-air-quality-agency/
  13. That's right. Gross government debt is forecast to hit $1.138 trillion in June 2024. Net government debt will be $966 billion. https://au.finance.yahoo.com/news/disconcerting-australias-1-trillion-debt-explosion-exposed-200033933.html But that's okay because we're having the economy tick over with $1500 per fortnight going to employees to keep them in work and $1100 per fortnight going to the unemployed. https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/may/15/jobkeeper-payment-when-paid-eligibility-ato-tax-for-sole-traders-start-date-how-long-application-jobseeker-payments
  14. If Australia can afford 1 trillion and give people up to $1500 every two weeks, then why can't America afford 2 trillion? We don't have $1k loaves of bread. You can buy bread from the supermarket here for $1.30 https://shop.coles.com.au/a/national/product/coles-smart-buy-bread-white
