We are all going to die !!!!!
Sooner or later . Irrespective of some overachieving virus.
In the meantime, Life goes on. Some things will get appreciably better with the twists and turns in store for our collective futures.
I’m thinking ....
Less fishing pressure.....more fish . Healthier oceans.
Being able to rock up to Insta famous locations and not having to watch the utmost depths of vanity being plumbed before you by the vacuously photogenic .
Locally grown food.
I'd make a pretty good English or TEFL teacher. And I can tell you that with authority as I know not to make grammatical mistakes like starting a sentence with 'And'.
“If there’s one good thing which could come from this threat it’s the reassessment of the values we hold important.”
That depends on who is assessing and what values they deem important."
Who's feeling confident there? And all silver lining-ish?
One question are you Floyd/Guy smily?
WTF is with you people continually changing user names?
I honestly I originally thought Pupkin at first was a new user because he started off kind of like a normal person, but it's been quite obvious for weeks now that it's just Facto again on about his fourth user name.
Why don't you be a man and stick to one user name instead of trying to deceive people.
IMHO only reason Facto changed profile names is because he was probably sick of just posting one liners and memes and wanted to start having a decent opinion on things, but feared being called out for a change of posting style.
Because he was well known for lacking opinion, and just posting one liners, memes and just links, and we gave him crap for it.
Anyway hat's off to all the guys that stick to one user name or if they do change names they are open about it like Blindboy.
@indo. Same user name I have always used since my first ever post on SW whenever that was. Stu would probably know. Why don't you be a man and stop referring to female minors as little bitches.
2nd that. Fucking shit thing to call a 17 year old whom you've never met or seen.
Can vouch that Mattlock has, unlike some current and past commenters, used the same handle since his first post.
As for Greta: If getting enraged by a teenage girl is not an outward sign of insecurity then what is?
Yeah, we don't take offence in this age.....but I will lash out at a 16-year old girl who has a different opinion than mine.
more silver linings, more comedy gold from Spain:
+1 for music choice
Yeah Indo, how dare you:)
All together now. 1,2,3,
You really are a fascist cockhead ID. And that is in regards to your whole post and most of your previous posts. You are a total shit cunt!
Did Indo have a go at Adam Goodes for calling out a 13 year old girl that called him a monkey?
I swear I read that somewhere.
Yeah, not cool indo. You can disagree with what she has to say, but calling a disabled (autistic) minor a "little bitch" is kinda f*ked up.
The silver lining being that there’s a Swellnet shitfight and I’m not getting dung flung at me.
I don't think Indo is a bad guy at all and in fact i reckon in person he'd be a pretty good bloke. Also, sometimes it's hard to express yourself in words especially with limited space and time. It's not as if the SW forums are the place to pen your opus magnum.
Anyway Indo, if you read this, even though the young lady in question is probs a precocious little c..t, probably best to not actually come out and say it. Or at the very least have a think before you hit send.
I enjoy your posts, they've always got a little bit of everything.
Won't be long blowy, day's still young.
As sure as the sun rises in the east.
I always get a laugh from Indo's posts.
Guffaws of incredulity.
A kid has the balls to stand up and say it like it is and she’s precocious cunt. Starts a global movement and heightens the conversation that affects the whole world whilst people largely have thier heads in the sand ( up thier own arse in the case of a couple of blokes on here) and she gets abused. What have you useless cunts stood up for, put yourselves out there for, separated from the herd and started something.
Calm down soggy, twas tongue in cheek.
Roger Zen, all my comments regarding ID stand though.
Ha ha go for a surf come back and i missed the attack party.
Seriously if me calling her a bitch offended you just because she is just under 18 and not over, well good you need to be offended more (offence being a choice), you people are the perfect example of the problem with people/society today, so fucking petty with all your BS, at least we now have something serious to talk about and deal with.
Anyway i dont care much for her, but she is obviously being used by her parents and others, probably good for her own mental health that she is out of the spotlight for a while.
Anyway surfed alone at a little reef for half an hour then not long after 15 others are out most grommets now school holidays have started, sitting almost 1 metres apart chatting away, workers still doing road works down the road, five of them about 1 metres apart, everyone else seems to be doing the same as ever, going too be in the thousands of new cases per day by this time next week for sure.
Anyway im going to go do a few hours of work. (alone, far from anyone)
PS. Ok cool Mattlock is not Guy..
PSS. Thanks Zen, yeah me and Blowin have a habit of just saying what we want or think, you get shit for that, but thats just how it is, its actually not what i do in my day to day life, i think carefully about what i say and say as little as needed, but its kind of a nice change.
"Seriously if me calling her a bitch offended you just because she is just under 18 and not over, well good you need to be offended more (offence being a choice), you people are the prefect example of the problem with people/society today, so fucking petty with all your BS."
You're kidding right? People calling out a spray like that are what's wrong with society?
Sure, people pulling the "I'm offended" card to shut down a conversation is a sh*t tactic, but there's a difference between that and calling you out for being a misogynistic dickhead and attacking the messenger instead of the message.
"yeah me and Blowin have a habit of just saying what we want or think, you get shit for that, but thats just how it is, its actually not what i do in my day to day life, i think carefully about what i say and say as little as needed, but its kind of a nice change."
"you people are the prefect example of the problem with people/society today!"
Thinking, Facto......you should try it.
Back from surf (just us) and there was a bit of silver in the water surface, but I digress
Read it, all of you. Understand the forces behind the young woman.
Funny thing vj is that I can't access that link as it comes up with a malware warning. (working from home via company internet). Although I haven't seen a link blocked for years.
As for Indo, we all know he is the love child of Alan Jones and Pauline Hanson. (An observation, not an insult)
"The silver lining being that there’s a Swellnet shitfight and I’m not getting dung flung at me."
Had a laugh at that Blowin well done for staying topic.
It‘s an interesting phenomenon just how much Greta Thunberg triggered plenty of older white men. Their reactionary, defensive, gatekeeper instincts flared up like a bad allergic reaction. All it took was one teen girl speaking the uncomfortable truth.
I don't see AJ surviving 5 seconds of Pauline foreplay...I'm calling BS on that
Trump-pauline is plausible...
@Wally Um go look on social media its not just older white men that feel like i do.
The hate comes from all age's and both genders, and people of all skin colours or ethnic backgrounds, i follow Indonesian social media and the post under her articles from Indonesians is the same men and women.
I remember some social media post from i think it was WSL supporting her last year and i was blown away by the hate and things id never think lets alone say, and im sure they weren't all old white men.
She has been specially manufactured though for anyone who critiques her too look bad, kind of old enough for people to listen to her, but still young enough to be off limits to criticism in some peoples eyes, female better than male, and to make it even better has Asperger’s syndrome, only way it could get better is if she was a person of colour.
But hey few years time and she wont be off limits anymore, just like if i called Pauline Hanson a dumb bitch and nobody would blink including Pops..
@West of lake
I dont like Alan Jones and i dont agree with half the things Pauline says, only admire her as a strong women and a true battler.
You all do realise that the love child of Alan Jones and Pauline would have to be conceived by artificial insemination, right?
What a thought, Poorlean and the turkey baster.
I was a very minimal poster on another forum maybe 5 years ago and a regular poster wrote a bunch of things about a female politician (not PH)...calling her a cunt...amongst other things
I wrote something...just along the lines of being a disgusting thing to say
Man I got hammered...not just by him...at least half a dozen PM's calling me all sorts of unpleasant things...that was the last post I ever made there honestly
Sorry Id but I prefer the responses here
And maybe I wouldn't blink...but would that indicate you had a few mummy issues you would need to deal with?
Surely, it's Alan 'Gloria' Jones, Diamante Joe Hildebrand & Ol' KAK? What a bizarre, shit media-fed, love triangle!
Whatever the mix...you require a penis to reproduce...I don't see a penis in that mix
I think all genitalia related insults are covered in that despicable gang of three. And as Donnie would say, they're all YUGE ones!
Balance no you dont just need a sperm bank.
Pretty much in the long term makes the male race redundant.
I guess they may need males to be slaughtered in mass to fight wars
or lift heavy things.
Back on track I have no doubts that china released this virus deliberately
to bring down the worlds economy buy up everything of value at a
massively reduced price then control the worlds economics. All this
without firing one bullet.
Is that inside info from scientists or from racists on the internet?
A little from column a and a little from column b
"We are all going to die".Correct,life has a 100% mortality rate.So let's shut the country down because what is it now? 7 or is it 8 dead from the virus?Much,much more to this but the proles are only to happy to hand their lives over to the government.Amazing how so many people want their hand held from the cradle to the grave.FMD what a time to be alive.
Less road traffic hopefully.
More selfies :-(
VJ, ID and Horas,
" just like if i called Pauline Hanson a dumb bitch and nobody would blink including Pops.."
Yeah, I'd call you out for that too.
Attack her ideas, no worries. Question her sanity/moral compass/whatever on the basis of what she says, no worries. Call her a dumb bitch, not cool.
Same for Greta. Same for anyone.
Edit: to be fair, I'm not above reproach there either. Said my fair share of idiotic things, still do and when I do I ought to be called out too.
Sorry not buying that at all.
If someone called someone like Pauline hanson here a Bitch it wouldn't raise one eyebrow.
It's just about peoples personal bias and in Gretta's case her age, but as we know Gretta has been manufactured for these exact reasons.
My post is regarding your political/social stance.
From advocating violence against peaceful protesters. Very un-democratic.
Your beef with any female who has a more left compassionate approach to governing society.
Your lust for more dictatorial governance and social compliance.
Your refusal to recognise robust climate science and constant contrarian approach to facts and figures. Yet you believe the science surrounding the current viral threat.
And your generally fascist ideology and support of leaders who should not be in any position to lead.
I could give a fuck what you say out loud. Your comments on here reveal your ideology. The fact that the silver lining for you is that it has silenced discussion on an issue that has far longer lasting implications for the quality of life on earth than the current threat and your disdain for those that have worked hard to bring it into the realm of public awareness is what I strongly object to and find hard to understand.
Just spoke to a good mate, he has a very smart business minded brother
He got on to the government's up to 400k loan scheme for businesses.
He got 300k, put none of it into his own business...but spent it all on importing hand sanitizer. It may not have even got onto a ship yet, but he has sold it all
I was pretty happy yesterday when I went shopping. I had two shirts on my couch, but neither past the sniff test...but then I thought...who gives a shit, no one will be close enough to know I stink...so I wore the least offensive one, and was pretty happy with myself
Some blokes make a million bucks out of this...others get away with wearing a stinky shirt in public...I am the wrong fucking bloke
Well Balance , I remember clearly what an old crane rigger told me " where there is confusion there is quid to be made ." These are those times to some people .
Yeah cripple but I have done the maths...if I can replicate what I did yesterday over the next 6 months...I worked out I will save, conservatively, $3.85 on washing powder
Pretty happy with that
