4WD: Toyota Landcruiser Sahara Turbo 100 Series
SUV: BMW X5 4.4i, considering Porsche Cayenne Turbo S
4-Door: BMW 330i
2-Door: Aston Martin V8 Vantage
Hybrid 4-Door: Lexus GS 450h
Hybrid SUV: Lexus RX 400h, considering Porsche Cayenne Hybrid
as for those thinking i am only picking expensive cars, i'm not. i have driven nearly every vehicle on the list (not the hybrids or the vantage) and i picked them because of their drivability mainly, and how i feel when on the road with them. plus i have a passion for well crafted vehicles and i think we all know the bigger the manufacturer's budget, the better looking the car ;)...although, thats not always true, especially when it comes to pontiac *cough* aztek *cough* GTO *cough*...i mean the freakin GTO was designed by GM australia as a wannabe sport coupe, and it even failed as that! so of course they ship it over to america lol
lol this kid is really crazy about his new N64 lol, the editing makes it even funnier lol
This is a spoof of the new aussie ad campaign with the slogan "where the bloody hell are you?"...quite frankly, i use the F and S words pretty freely, but thats a personal choice of mine and i curb it when its obviously needed. i still think the term "bloody hell" is something a bit vulgar when your speaking on a worldwide scale and not something i think australia should really be coined with. but it seems they have let the ockers into the media room and somehow its acceptable to broadcast the new ads across the globe trying to bring tourism to australia. i still think these spoofs are very funny, but i dont reckon the real ads have had much good thought put into them, cos ino i certainly wouldn't be asking where the bloody hell are you to a foreigner...but then again, i guess we dont see this from other countries cos everyone else's cultures are so much more refined...

chef is dead v_v...r.i.p chef
the P plater beeped a little beep at him and he said in his matter of fact tone "i'm sorry, what do u want me to do about it?". and that's what pissed me off. what further pissed me off was that he continued to get out of his vehicle and fill his car with fuel, while his bottle blond bimbo wife sat there doing jack shit. so i walked past, and said "why dont you just move your bloody car mate?" to which he turned to me, and opened his mouth to reply but the P plater beeped again and the guy from her car started yelling at the man to move. but he didnt. he just yelled back some crap (i was in the shop by this time) and so i told the attendant (while pointing) "that guy is being an arsehole, could you please do something about it". i then left the shop, went back to my car and the shop attendant came out, and told the man he would have to move his car, or he would inform the police.
as a side note that is meant to be short but will actually be long; to those smart asses who are reading this and thinking "oh whatever he cant call the police the man doesnt have to move his car if he doesnt want to"...well actually, yeh he does. if someone claims public aggrevation, it is an offence, very similar to how you would get offended if i publicly (ie. to your face) made remarks about your race, religion or sexual preference. a refuelling station is a public place, and needs to be shared. if you deliberatly do not comply with the guidelines of the public place you are in (the guidelines for the use of a refuelling station clearly state that you may use one bowser at a time to refill one vehicle at a time) then that is both a violation of the use of that public place, and if other's require something that you have no right to be preventing them from using, then they can claim aggrevation, which is an offence.
anyway, back to my story...i really hate aussie ockers who think they own the joint. they think they can come and do what they like, treat other people like shit and that it is ok. i wanted to punch that man in the face so many times, i wanted to run him over in my car, because he simply has no respect for others. it sickened me, i stood there watching him and trying to figure out what the f*ck his problem was, he only had to move his car back 3 feet, which doesnt take effort, but he was content pissing others off. i was so out of it the attendant asked me more than once for my money, which in time i ended up taking out of my wallet and giving to him...but why?...why do aussies think they own the joint? (yes smartasses, i DO know this is australia, but just because you were born here, doesnt meant you can throw your weight around. you are no more than anybody else).
sometimes, i think i shouldnt have said anything in hindsight, because i might get my face flattened. but i really dont care. i dont have a big mouth, and i dont have to make my opinions heard, but i do get very very agitated when others are being done wrong by. *sigh* anyway...this all might seem to have been taking some time, but i just like explaining. it all took under 2 minutes. just wanted to say something bout my day.
dont mind the crappy quality, what do you expect from a cameraphone!
as i go about my day i have several different services at my disposal to make my life easier. theres google for search and their gmail service for my mail, 30boxes for my calendar, tada-lists for my lists and flickr for photos. oh and let's not forget my favourite ma.gnolia for my bookmarks. but today during my software engineering class i came across fleck...i dont know what it is so dont ask lol but it appears to be a service that has grouped a lot of that stuff together, to make it the one central place to store, find, tag...
now its not the first to attempt this, but it IS the first to attempt it while providing the services it groups together. there are web dashboards and desktops that group ur gmail with ur flickr and ur rss news...but their use of the corresponding api and integration of all those services is only at the first level, and can only get there. they dont have the power to integrate on a much more intimate level, which is something i think a service would need to truly succeed. powerful integration is the key to a central service working. the key to it succeeding is that it needs to be intuitive, easy to use and nice to look at. a perfect example is del.icio.us vs ma.gnolia. ma.gnolia isnt fully on its feet yet not having its api out there in the wild, but when it does, it will be a true contended on the basis of intuitiveness and looks. both services are already smart and easy to use, they both essentially do the same thing but with their own twists, so in my view, it comes down to the nicety of the site for me to pick one and stick with it. and so far, even with the api out of the way and hence a lot of customiseability, ma.gnolia has won hands down, on not just looks but the other successful factors.
but i digress...about fleck, i could be wrong...there is a lot of secrecy about fleck and what it will end up providing, but so far, i reckon if they provide the services they are grouping, the service will be something that a lot of people will use. true integration, intelligent matching, being able to draw on things from other parts of the service is what will make it just work. like the iLife suite for mac os x, it should be something that people use because it is easy. its a shame i dont know more about it, but i guess it just adds to the excitement ;)
