Great Australian Firewall to censor online games

Ross Atkins

@jake (Is this any real loss?)

Yes, it certainly is. You ask "Does anyone over the age of 15 actually play computer games?" Well, I (mid-thirties) do, my housemate (also mid-thirties) does, my GF (mid-twenties), my parents (both mid-sixties) and any number of other people play games of all kinds. Just because YOU don't, you don't think anyone else needs to either? That's verging dangerously close to the kind of thinking that our dear Senator Stalin^H^H^H^H^H^HConroy is using when he thinks there's not going to be a backlash over this.

Oh, and AC(26th June 10:33): FOSTER'S a worthwhile contribution to the world?! What on earth were you drinking beforehand that Foster's actually seems like an improvement? It could all be poured straight back into the horse it came from and leave the world a better place. We only ship it out to other countries because nobody here will touch the stuff.

Frenchman spit-roasts 550kg camel

@Mountford D

I've tried camel as sausages, steaks and chops and found that it's actually pretty tasty. If you cook it rare it isn't tough, and tastes very similar to beef. Not a patch on ostrich meat though - now there's some good eating.

Down with secular ringtones

@Dillon Pyron

I have the tune from Benny Hill (it's called Yakety Sax BTW) as my ringtone. I get the strangest looks when I get a call in a public place.
