Qantas

QANTAS decided to put themselves first and neglect tens of thousands of passengers, including many sick and dying passengers, by grounding their entire fleet, losing more money over this pay dispute than they would've if they had done nothing.

I think QANTAS needs to just grow up and stop being so selfish. If not, then Australia will die, and the Global Financial Crisis will worsen.

5-Day Weekend

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 29 2011 · 31 views
life news
So, because of TAFE and an upcoming public holiday, I get 5 consecutive days off TAFE! :D

Friday (when I did my driving test) was a normal timetable day off TAFE for me anyway, Saturday and Sunday were the weekend, Tuesday we get off because of Melbourne Cup Day, and Monday the TAFE gave us off because of Cup Day.

After that we only get 2 days of TAFE, and then 3 days off for a normal long weekend. Then things go back to normal (kind of; watch this space).

Your Second-Grade English Lesson For Today

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 27 2011 · 76 views
life news
That's right, YOUR lesson, not YOU'RE lesson!

Okay, let's begin by learning about the words "there", "their" and "they're".
  • "There" refers to place. Eg. "I live just over there".
  • It can also be used in such context as "There is no need to worry."
  • "Their" refers to possession. Eg. "Their lawn needs mowing."
  • "They're" is a contraction. It is short for "they are". Eg. "They're not heading to school today."
Now, next up is the difference between "your" and "you're".
  • "You're" is another contraction, meaning "you are". Eg. "You're wasting my time."
  • "Your" refers to possession, just as "their" does, except the item belongs to you. Eg. "That's your problem."
  • Only use "you're" if you mean "you are". DO NOT use "your" in this case.
Next, we will learn about "to", "too" and "two".
  • "To" expresses motion regarding a destination. Eg. "We are heading to the shops."
  • "Too" means to a higher degree than someone or something can handle. Eg. "This boulder is too heavy for me to move."
  • "Two" is the number 2. Eg. "People even get this confused with the other two words sometimes."
Finally, we will learn the difference between "lose" and "loose".
  • "Lose", pronounced "LOOZ", is the opposite of "find". Eg. "I hope I don't lose my watch."
  • In some cases, it is also the opposite of "win". Eg. "Unless we do something we're going to lose the match!"
  • "Loose", pronounced "LOOSS", is the opposite of "tight" Eg. "If we don't fix this loose screw, the whole machine may fall apart!"
Thank you, and that's our second-grade English lesson for today. I hope no-one will get these simple words confused ever again. :angry:

Waiting Too Long For Dinner

life news
Well, today is my parents' anniversary, so they're out for dinner atm. My brother is also out at respite for the week, leaving me home alone for the night, so I only get to cook half the lasagne I usually cook on a Thursday. Sadly, it's taking twice as long to cook! I have to wait an hour instead of the usual half an hour! I LOVE MY LASAGNE! I CAN'T WAIT THAT LONG!! :crying:

I Think I've Stopped Growing...

I just came back from an all-you-can-eat restaurant. Normally when I go there I have 3 or 4 dishes, plus desert. This time however, I could only manage 2 and desert. It's common for a growing teen to eat heaps, but I'm beginning to think that phase is now behind me...

Shikadi

Anyone remember Commander Keen?

My fave race in that series was the Shikadi. They have to be the most unique fictional race in the history of ever!

I've actually dona a couple of pictures of them, one by hand nod one using Photoshop.

http://fc01.devianta..._Machop_Fan.png

All images posted on BZPower must be 500 kilobytes (kB) in size or smaller.

[Image Linked -Takuma Nuva]

In this pic, they are on the planet Korath III constructing their gigantic weapon of mass destruction (for lack of a better term), the Omegamatic.

I know Shikadi don't speak English, but I don't know Omnispeak, so I decided to use my imagination instead.

I tried to fix this picture using a random editing software in Windows, but failed miserably. That's why the pic looks so awful.

Why Should Age Matter?

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 24 2011 · 64 views
Bionicle and BZPower
If you really like something, you shouldn't let age or your social life stop you from enjoying it. I personally don't believe in growing out of things. Such a concept is only an excuse for trying to fit in with the social norm.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a teddy bear to cuddle with!

Well, I finished fixing every link in the list of BBBC members so they point to the new board's profile page. Thankfully, using BBCode (or whatever it's called) made it MUCH easier!

I'd like to take this time to request that all members let me know whenever they change their display name, so I can update the list.

Time For More Aussie Nostalgia!

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 23 2011 · 24 views

A posh woman is sitting at her desk looking through the Yellow Pages.

"Oh...? Jan? JAN??"

Jan begins to approach the woman's room

"Where's our ad in the Yellow Pages directory?"

Suddenly, Jan, having forgotten to place the ad, walks out of the building. The posh woman could tell, and tries in vein to hide her frustration.

"Keep calm, count to 10: 1, 2, 3... 8, 9, 10..."

She slowly gets up and walks to the window, where she sees Jan running past in the street far below. She opens the window roughly and yells:

"NOT HAPPY JAN!"

Sorry; I have a habit of being nostalgic. This time it's the owl-like Furby that was so big in the late '90s that even I had one!

Anyone else remember them?

Why Can't Bionicle Return?

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 21 2011 · 54 views
Bionicle and BZPower
I'm sure Lego would've learned from their mistakes of making brittle pieces and using the Inika and Av-Matoran builds over and over.

I'm sure they could go in trillions of directions at LEAST with the story now that everyone's together on one now-whole planet.

I'm sure Toa Helryx, Artakha, the MU Robot, Kojol, Lariska Johmak and the Sisters of the Skrall would make brilliant sets.

But why is no-one giving them a chance?

The Freedom Of Minimodding

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 21 2011 · 46 views
Bionicle and BZPower
One thing I love about BZPower is that we're allowed to point new users in the right direction when they make mistakes. We're not allowed to do that on any other forum I frequent; they all call it minimodding, and infract you for it. Here, it is actually ENCOURAGED, because the staff here know that it makes their job easier.

What I'd Like To See In Buildable Action Figures

Posted by Makuta_of_Oz , Oct 20 2011 · 22 views

I'd love to see skeletons that are the size of Skrall, armed with a variety of weapons, like swords, bows and magical staffs. I'd also love to see a lich (which is an undead sorcerer and leader of an undead army/society) that's about the size of Tuma.

And to think I was afraid of skeletons over a decade ago...
