Barry O’Farrell’s draconian lockout and alcohol laws

Let me start out by outlining the key issue here. NSW Premier Barry O’Farrell is an incompetent fuckwit. This guy is seriously a completely useless piece of shit. No-body knows where he came from, and no-body likes him. It will be a good thing when this fucking deadshit gets booted out back to the shithole he came from.

Now with that said, let us explore just one of the reasons why Barry O’Farrell is a docile fuck rat.

Here are the new lockout and alcohol restriction laws that Barry O’Fuckell has put in place:

  • 1.30am lockouts. This means if you’re in a venue and you want to duck out to get some food, fresh air, a cigarette, or even some critically needed medicine from your car, you can’t go back in. That’s right, some weird old fucking man that no-one likes is telling you that you’re not allowed to go out after a bedtime he is putting in place.
  • No drinks served after 3am.
  • All bottle shops and liquor stores close at 10pm.

The reason that this fuckwit has put these laws into place is because of 2 recent unfortunate circumstances where 2 guys were “king hit” which resulted in fatalities. This is a sad thing, and the perpetrators who did this are quite simply deadbeat criminals who will never amount to anything. But it’s important to note that both of these incidents occurred between 9pm and 10pm. So anyone who isn’t severely brain damaged can immediately see that the policy isn’t actually aimed at real results, it’s just a political ploy to appear as though he’s done something. It’s a ridiculous attempt at appeasing the media rile up around 2 specific incidents, and it’s not effective. It’s aimed at the paranoid media, and preys on the fear of the population. It’s a dangerous law that removes a part of our freedom, and most people are too blind to even realise.

Now many of us are hard working citizens. We work Monday-Friday, 9-5:30. We slug it out in the rat race, we embark on the peak hour nightmare, crawling along like zombies. We do our part to make a living, to survive and to keep food on the table. On the weekend, some of us like to unwind by going out, listening to some music, having a dance and a few drinks. Why on earth does this incompetent state government want to squash us into the ground by enforcing unreasonable restrictions on our social activities? WHY should we be punished for the problems that an EXTREME minority cause? 99.99% of the population are being punished for the actions of the 0.01% trouble makers. Our entire cities nightlife is being crushed because of a few individuals. Sydney is the biggest city in Australia, we want to be recognised as a global city, we hosted the international olympics not so long ago, and now one old man has, in a single spontaneous, ill-conceived, unpremeditated act, has squashed our nightlife appeal.

The other thing that baffles the mind is that these trouble makers are very easy to spot. Anyone with two braincells to rub together can profile the type of fuckwits who are out to cause trouble, so police certainly would be capable of this. Doesn’t it make more sense to punish these criminals than punish the entire city, it’s people, it’s reputation and it’s entertainment industry?

Australia is such a nanny state now that it’s seriously becoming embarrassing. Slowly but surely our freedoms are being crushed, and people don’t even realise it’s happening.

Don’t cut corners on the NBN

I’ll admit the prospect of Tony Abbott leading Australia terrifies me. But you know what? There’s something that is far, far more frightening. There is an obnoxious, uninformed, and ignorant policy that the Liberals have put forward, and it’s their weak, crippled National Broadband Network proposal. If the liberals actually get in power and put in place their reduced, passive, degraded, sub-par NBN plan, it will be detrimental to us as a nation. It will stifle our progress with technology on more levels than most people can imagine. Our nation must vote for Labor and their full performance National Broadband Network. Read more »

Why Internet Explorer should never be forgiven

So Microsoft have recently undertaken a marketing campaign in an attempt to convince people to not hate their browser IE as much as they currently do. The campaign is called The Browser you Loved to Hate. Their whole angle is to try and be “cool” by admitting that their browser used to suck, but now they have learnt and have made this new cool product with IE 9 + 10.

Now what I’m about to say is very important. DON’T BE FOOLED. Don’t buy into this cheap, dodgy attempt at Microsoft trying to save face with IE. Microsoft should never, ever be forgiven for the monstrosity that is Internet Explorer.

The Future of Humanity

The future of civilization and humanity as we know it is without any doubt heading towards a “hive mind” or “collective consciousness” where we’re all hooked up to the one “brain”. We will become like the Borg, quite literally. This isn’t fantasy, it’s real.

Electronic Cigarettes – Research and Recommendations

So about 6 months ago after noticing a couple of friends smoking e-cigarettes, I embarked on a journey of research to find my first electronic cigarette. It seemed perfect, a safer non-carcinogenic substitute for smoking which provides nicotine, but “Vapour” (Vape) instead of toxic smoke.

Julia Gillard vs Tony Abbott

I have a major problem with society when it comes to politics. I have almost lost faith in the whole process.

After a lot of consideration, I believe it simply comes down just a few key points:

  1. Due to ignorance, when there is real change, people resist.
  2. Due to greed, if a policy ever involves people having to pay, regardless of what it’s for, people resist.
  3. The minority scream the loudest.

For the past few months, the vibe in Australian politics seems like everyone expects Labor’s Julia Gillard to lose in the upcoming September election. Read more »

WoW’s Most Blacklisted Battlegrounds – Official Statistics

So by now any World of Warcraft players will be aware of the ability to now blacklist battlegrounds. This feature lets you remove up to 2 battlegrounds from being selected when queuing for a random battleground.

I for one had been waiting for this feature ever since “queueing for random battlegrounds” was introduced. In fact a lot of people had. It was unfortunate that the feature was buggy and didn’t work for many months after being introduced. Read more »

Interfacing with Microsoft SQL Server from OSX

Just last year I got my first Macbook Pro for development, after a lifetime of Windows (and linux/unix on server environments). I was very excited to get my environment set up as many friends who work in a similar field had sworn by it. I knew that almost every element of my workspace would be easily transferrable to OSX, and in some cases more elegantly. Technologies such as Apache, PHP, ssh/shell, etc are almost more native to the *nix core than they are to windows.

There was however a single piece of the puzzle that I knew I still had to deal with. Microsoft SQL Server. Read more »

Pando Media Booster – dodgy, clever or both?

So a few months ago it was a quiet WoW maintenance Tuesday night (rant on that coming soon) and at the time I had almost completed the entire Star Trek TNG series. I decided I’d download and try out the “Star Trek Online” MMO. I wasn’t expecting anything super special but I like Star Trek, I like MMOs, some YouTube videos looked ok so I figured I’d give it a go. Somewhere through the installation process it prompted something about installing “Pando Media Booster” to help with the download. Read more »

Samsung Galaxy S4 is ugly. Just like the S3.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is ugly. I’ve never understood why so many phone manufacturers¬†consistently¬†fail when it comes to making a phone that actually LOOKS good. The Samsung S4, just like the Samsung S3 is curvy, ugly and has that tacky shiny plastic that looks like a cheap piece of shit. If they’re going to make it crappy plastic, can’t they at least make it Matte so that it looks a little more modern than something out of the 80′s? Read more »
