Not sure if anyone has noticed recently (nor if any of you care), but its been a pretty exciting time in Australia over the last few days.

Kevin Rudd, our soon to be ex-Prime Minister has pretty much been kicked out by his second in command, Julia Gillard.

It all started after Rudd was seen losing support by the general public (because he's an asshole), and soon after that he lost the support of the Workers Union.
As soon as that happened, Rudd started losing support from all sides, even his own backers (Julia Gillard).

Rudd stared questioning the loyalty of his party members, and as soon as Gillard heard of this she took is as an insult to her loyalty to the Prime Minister and to the country.

So within the hour, Australia could have a new leader. It is also exciting because Gillard will be the first ever female Prime Minister. Not only that but Rudd will be the first Prime Minister forced out of office in his first term.

So now you guys know.

Commence Australian jokes.

Well that apparently has already been done. Although no one has heard about it, they were supposedly going to be added to the RC list and filtered out by the great firewall of Australia.

But the whole internet censorship topic is deemed politically 'toxic', as in, no MP in their right mind would run that campaign in an election year.

But while all of the conservative MP's are staying away from the topic, Steven Conroy is still being a little shit and flailing his arms around while yelling 'na na na na na i cant hear you'.

Though his lies have been called out on numerous occasions.

Well its not really a win, or a loss.

I'm quite happy to have gotten rid of Rudd, mainly because he openly addmitted to knowing nothing about Conroys internet filter and so he passed all responsibilty off to Conroy because he couldnt be bothered looking into it.

Though is the enemy we know better than the enemy we dont?

Grats.
Australians all let us rejoice,
For we are young and free;
We've golden soil and wealth for toil,
Our home is girt by sea;
Our land abounds in Nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and rare;
In history's page, let every stage
Advance Australia fair!
In joyful strains then let us sing,
"Advance Australia fair!"

When gallant Cook from Albion sail'd,
To trace wide oceans o'er,
True British courage bore him on,
Till he landed on our shore.
Then here he raised Old England's flag,
The standard of the brave;
With all her faults we love her still,
"Brittannia rules the wave!"
In joyful strains then let us sing
"Advance Australia fair!"

Beneath our radiant southern Cross,
We'll toil with hearts and hands;
To make this Commonwealth of ours
Renowned of all the lands;
For those who've come across the seas
We've boundless plains to share;
With courage let us all combine
To advance Australia fair.
In joyful strains then let us sing
"Advance Australia fair!"

While other nations of the globe
Behold us from afar,
We'll rise to high renown and shine
Like our glorious southern star;
From England, Scotia, Erin's Isle,
Who come our lot to share,
Let all combine with heart and hand
To advance Australia fair!
In joyful strains then let us sing
"Advance Australia fair!"

Shou'd foreign foe e'er sight our coast,
Or dare a foot to land,
We'll rouse to arms like sires of yore
To guard our native strand;
Brittannia then shall surely know,
Beyond wide ocean's roll,
Her sons in fair Australia's land
Still keep a British soul.
In joyful strains the let us sing
"Advance Australia fair!"

I've actually been to the equator and see the Coriolis effect in action. 5 feet on one side it spun one way, 5 feet on the other side it spun the other way, and dead on center it didn't spin.

Actually, this is a complete myth and does not work. Which way a toilet or sink drains is based on its design, the Coriolis effect is too weak on the scale of several orders of magnitude.

That's what I thought.


Until I saw it.

EDIT: Which is really weird because it shouldn't have worked. Here's a video of exactly where I saw it happen. Despite the multiple takes in the video, I can assure you that's the same basin. It baffles me.

I have heard that it is more affected by the design of a specific toilet or sink. While yes the Coriolis effect does have a factor it isn't strong enough.

I have heard? I mean there has been plenty of coverage and shows where they sent in videos and it showed how it's different no matter where it is from.

The faster they fester the quicker they muster.
