    The accelerator pedal.
    The view driving along the coast from Ocean Reef to Scarborough.
    Those two bouncy things on female joggers.
  1. Car should feel a little better this afternoon, dropped the car in for rear diff mount bushes, rear blade arm bushes and as I asked why I have been hearing a squishing type noise at low speed stopping, new front's as well.
  2. Hopefully not this house. http://feature.thewest.com.au/methcity/ Authorities discovered 90kg of the drug — the biggest methamphetamine bust in WA — when they raided properties in Queens Park and Cloverdale on Thursday, arresting one Singaporean and five Taiwanese in their 20s.
  3. Here's an article on the fire in question: http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/stories/s478800.htm RITA HOP: I got woken up because I thought there were kids playing with fireworks, or something. It was a firework, alright, but 44-gallon drums flying in the air. STEPHEN McDONELL: The toxic cocktail poured into the night sky. Firefighters battled to control it. Unknown chemicals combined to mutate, lethal dioxins were formed, and explosions sent the deadly material in all directions. PROFESSOR PETER DINGLE, ENVIRONMENTAL TOXICOLOGIST, MURDOCH UNIVERSITY: You're getting huge plumes of black, dirty, contaminated, very toxic smoke. For a decade, it had been licensed by the Government as a chemical and solvent recycling plant. But its main business, in reality, was stockpiling toxic waste in thousands of drums - many rusting, leaking and unlabelled. Waste produced by panel beaters, hospitals, large industrial companies was being dumped. Heavy metals, acids, sodium aluminate and percloroethylene, or dry-cleaning fluid - a known carcinogen - along with many unknown substances were all lumped in together. Yet government departments were recommending the site to industry.
  4. Obviously not from the comment I quoted in the article I linked: Jenny Boymal, from cleaning education company Jena Dyco, said without remediation, methamphetamine contamination could linger for years. "We've had customers who have gone in to do remediation and have lost track of thought for five seconds and had very minor contamination wearing full-face respirator, full suit, and been very sick afterwards," she said. "And that's walking into the property doing a quick assessment and walking out. "Living in the property - you can't even imagine the level of contamination." I've only heard from one copper mate about attending a home meth lab, he was called out to bring a trailer so they could move equipment into it for evidence storage, even standing out on the verge with the lab in the shed out the back, he got headaches and took the next day off work. Still doesn't top the story of attending a chemical factory fire though, he got a letter three weeks after attending that one to say no-one still knows what was in the barrel's that literally shot up into the air on fire and rained down, so they told him he needed new uniforms and new boots and to dispose of the others.
  5. Well you haven't seen our desks but let's just say they are the proverbial "cheapest sh1t possible for the most expensive price", so everyone has a mouse pad because laser mice don't work on the bare desks. They jump about everywhere, about the only thing these desks are good for is attracting dust and it getting ingrained into the top layer.
  6. Me for one, I don't know about you but "caustic soda, hydrochloric acid, acetone, peroxide" leaching into the environment around me and causing health problems is something I would like to avoid.
  7. I love my Razor Goliathus mouse mat's, I bought one for work after using one at home.
  8. Apparently it gets into the walls and chemicals leach out over time and cause health problems. Interestingly some articles state that even if you've never used meth, being somewhere it was used, it can leach into your body and cause you to fail drug tests. Just had a read of this article and it doesn't sound like the sort of stuff hanging around where you live, eat and sleep. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-12-22/laws-needed-to-protect-home-owners-drug-lab-contamination-police/5973256 Detective Acting Inspector Geoff Marsh, from Queensland police state drug command, said the illicit substances were being cooked using makeshift equipment and a toxic cocktail of chemicals. "They're made of acids [and] they're made of bases like a caustic soda, hydrochloric acid, acetone, peroxide - all the chemicals that you'd normally associate with industrial cleaning are utilised in the production of methamphetamine," he said. Cleaners have long recognised the potentially deadly effects of these chemicals, and many are becoming certified to clean a property after police have finalised their investigation. Jenny Boymal, from cleaning education company Jena Dyco, said without remediation, methamphetamine contamination could linger for years. "We've had customers who have gone in to do remediation and have lost track of thought for five seconds and had very minor contamination wearing full-face respirator, full suit, and been very sick afterwards," she said. "And that's walking into the property doing a quick assessment and walking out. "Living in the property - you can't even imagine the level of contamination." I'm looking at getting any places I think of buying tested, because there's a higher usage rate in the suburbs I am looking at.
  9. johnny with the hard hitting questions...
  10. Hey Dan, Are you going to get the place tested for meth? One of the staff mentioned that we are looking at doing that for any properties we take back, as apparently the long term affects of meth contamination leaking out can cause all sorts of health problems and we don't want problems down the line if some lawyer thinks they can make money suing us for selling toxic properties. I was put onto these guys http://methlabs.com.au/home-drug-lab-meth-testing-kits/
  11. Yep BP Ultimate, it's all I use. I do wonder whether Wait aWhile will go the way of some other states and start mandating more ethanol fuels, maybe that will bring in some more competition in the E85 space.
  12. I expect it's a case of gone of are the days of $1.36 BP98 in Wait aWhile, Monday's the cheapest day for us, it used to be up to 16c a litre cheaper: Type 14/01/2017 15/01/2017 16/01/2017 98 RON 154.9 152.9 150.9
  13. So is this just a B series issue?

  15. This is why the Liberal's multi technology mix is not so affectionately known as Malcolm Turnbull's Mess in IT circles. Why in god's name they decided buying Telstra's cr*ppy copper as well as forcing NBN Co' to pay for remediation works when Telstra had to pay the costs before just goes to show why bean counters should be shot if they even look in the direction of IT based projects. I am really glad I don't have to deal with the budget's any more, some of the half ars*d rules accountants come up with, I'm sure it's because they need to justify their jobs.
