"Today started like the normal sort of persons day I guess... I ate a bowl of cereal out of the skull of the first nerd I ever crushed, bathed in the blood of Todd Goldstein and punched the postman. Hi vis and a helmet??? Hahaha sorry buddy!! Not on my time. Prepare to be fuckin eliminated from my life nerd.
Then after a pretty uneventful breakfast I went for a light jog from the footy club to Colac Charcoal Chicken, a nice 154k run deserves 5 chickens and a 1.25L Solo bottle, so I downed that and jogged back to make it in time for training.
Simon Goodwin was impressed with what I'd done so far in the day, and sat the entire team down and praised me for what felt like an eternity...
Then I piped up and said "listen here fuckwad... I'll take over now..."
Then I gave him a stone cold stunner in front of all the boys because fuckin hell mate... anyone that pumps up another blokes tyres too much is a fuckin N E R D and I'm not talking about Pharrel.
All the lads started chanting "FUCK THAT NERD FUCK THAT NERD FUCK THAT NERD" as I stood triumphant over a freshly beaten up nerd and skulled five Melbourne Longnecks (also known as Maxy Gawns) at the same time.
Anyone know what the lesson here is?
If you said anything other than NO you're a fuckin nerd, because learning is for nerds and I dare you to ask Goody or the Postman what happens to nerds."

We stand shoulder to shoulder with the Muslim leaders who have been threatened by ISIS. These men have been vilified because they stand for peace and for living in harmony with people of all faiths and none in the Australian community.
The threat does however highlight that the path we have chosen, that of building bridges rather than walls, is the right path to the reduction of radicalization and ensuring the safety and security of our community.
On last night’s QandA programme Senator Jackie Lambie not only demonstrated a total misunderstanding of Sharia but also revealed the impoverished arguments that leads to the marginalization of the Muslim community and prepares fertile ground for radicalization.
Those who seek to marginalize the Muslim Community do not make our society safer, they in fact make it increasingly unsafe. Hanson, Lambie, Barnardi, Christensen and their ilk contribute to the risk of a marginalized and disenfranchised young person committing a violent offense. But that of course will play into their grab for political power.
I do not always agree with these Muslim teachers, but we disagree in a way that only good friends can. Where we always agree is that engagement in community is essential for a healthy society. That is why ISIS finds their teachings so offensive.
The Australian Community needs to give these Muslim Scholars all the support and encouragement we can.

9 YEARS AGO RIGHT NOW MACKAY WAS FLOODING [Please Share]
Most of you who lived in our region on this day 9 years ago will have it etched into your memory. On this day, February 15, of 2008, at this exact time of the day, Mackay was being smashed by intense rainfall, causing major flash flooding.
On this morning, 9 years ago, Mackay was squeezed between two different low-pressure systems, with the monsoon trough sitting right over the top of the city. Knowing of the potential of this situation to cause flooding, the Bureau of Meteorology had issued a Severe Weather Warning for Heavy Rain and Flash Flooding the night before, but no one quite expected it to be as bad as it was.
As over 65 BILLION Litres of Water fell from the sky over the Mackay area, the subsequent flooding caused damage to 10% of all houses in the Mackay City and Suburbs.
That's approximately 65,000,000,000 litres of water falling from the sky to be exact.
The rate at which the rain was falling on this morning exceeded the "1 in 500-year Recurrence Interval".
Rainfall during this morning started in Mackay around 3:30am, with incredible hourly totals.
The BOM's Mackay CBD Rain Guage recorded: 3am-4am: 33.6mm 4am-5am: 41.4mm 5am-6am: 132.3mm 6am-7am: 98.6mm 7am-8am: 85.6mm 8am-9am: 180.1mm 9am-10am: 18.6mm Totalling 590.2mm of rain in just 7 hours.
Elsewhere, the BOMs gauge at East Mackay recorded a whopping 625mm during a 6-hour period that morning, with unofficial reports from just north of Mackay of up to 985mm.
