Re: Cricket: Australia vs India TEST SERIES

Re: New Zealand...fvcked

SO according to Blackrock Bullet, Ireland couldn't have done any more to mange the virus? Despite the fact that Ireland didn't worry about closing its border, didn't care for Hotel Quarantine, didn't have the stamina to maintain lockdowns and didn't bother with contact tracing. Nope, nothing more co...

It's weird because the other day I was shopping and I had a hankering for some spam. I hadn't eaten it for 35 years perhaps. Anyway I brought some and ate it, it was gross. Faker than I remember.

Is there a holiday that celebrates first Australians? It's going to be a long time before such a day is celebrated if ever. Aboriginal Australians were only granted citizenship and given permission to vote in the 1960's, and as late the 1970's Aboriginal farm workers were still being paid only in a...

Re: New Zealand...fvcked

Lockdowns got all the publicity, and sparked most of the debate, but the keys to Australia's success in managing the virus have been the various state based contact tracing systems and the state run hotel quarantine programs.
