I think the spelling errors are intentional.

The other day a local mosque opened its doors and invited non-Muslims to visit in the spirit of their faith's willingness to be open and welcoming.

So I too decided to go to the local mosque at Lakemba in western Sydney for the first time to see what it was all about: Lakemba has a large Muslim population and the Lakemba Mosque is Australia's largest mosque.

At the time I was limping a little. I sat down and the Imam came up to me, laid his hands on my hand and said: "By the will of Allah and the prophet Muhammed - you will walk today."

I told him I wasn't paralysed, I only had a small bunion on my left foot.

He came back and laid his hands on me and looking skywards, earnestly repeated his mantra: "By the will of Allah and the prophet Muhammed - you WILL walk today."

Once again, I told him there was nothing wrong with me.

After prayers I stepped outside --- and bugger me he was right----

Anyone with connections i need two AFL GF tickets for this yrs GF will be in Melbourne that week-end for a 33.3yr reunion on the Friday so while in Melb would love to go to my first GF.

So far all i can find are package deals starting from $995.00 pp all we need are a couple of seats will to pay of cause but don't want to be reamed in the process.
Check out the Dockers website or message the club. A friend got two seats on an Auction on their club website for $700 each on the weekend. Theyre in the nosebleed section but have a 3 hour eat and drink fuction before the game at the Hyatt included as well. They had 8 doubles for auction, they all sold for opening bid price and one pair went unsold. They might still have them.

This link shows results for Auctions 5, 6 and 7 so #8 may still be available if youre ok paying that high.

Date Breach notice on the home page of the site.  :? Kind of read it but got bored very quickly.

Notice of Data Breach

You may have heard reports recently about a security issue involving VerticalScope. We would like to make sure you have the facts about what happened, what information was involved, and the steps we are taking to help protect you.

What Happened?

On June 13, 2016, we became aware that February 2016 data stolen from VerticalScope was being made available online.

What Information Was Involved?

Community member usernames, email addresses, hashed passwords, community userIDS, community website, and the IP address the username originally registered with.

What We Are Doing

We are in the process of invalidating passwords of all VerticalScope user accounts. We have posted a site security notification on each site updating users on the potential risk to certain accounts, the password reset and steps we are implementing to improve security. We are in the process of implementing stronger password rules (passwords now require a minimum of 10+ characters and a mixture of upper- and lower-case letters, numbers and symbols) along with automated account password expiries to encourage more frequent password changes. We will remind our users to use good password practices (not using the same password for multiple online accounts and using unique strong passwords). We are in the process of implementing additional safeguards to detect, alert and mitigate any future brute force attempts, and have notified our third party vendors that interact with our various forum API's of the February breach to allow their own security teams to investigate. We are continuing our investigation and will be collecting information to provide to the appropriate law enforcement authorities.

VerticalScope is taking steps to strengthen account security. We were already using encrypted passwords and salted hashes to store passwords, and our new password controls are intended to further strengthen user security. We are taking steps to investigate and test new encryption and security technologies to further protect our users.

What You Can Do

To keep your account as safe as possible, we recommend that you regularly change your VerticalScope community password, and that you use a unique password for each of your online accounts. Using the same password for multiple online accounts significantly increases your chances of being compromised. Even though the passwords stolen in February were hashed, we recommend that if you were using (or are currently using) your VerticalScope community password across multiple online accounts, that you change your password for such other online accounts. We encourage you to regularly review your accounts and report any suspicious or unrecognized activity immediately.

For More Information

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact our Community Management team by email at or on the website that you frequent. A support thread has been created on each website, and our support teams are on there to help you through the process and answer any questions you may have.

Seeing we're way off of Trump this line by Hillary was a beauty..

"Hillary Clinton tells New Zealand television in 1996 that she was named after Sir Edmund Hillary. At the time of Mrs. Clinton's birth, Hillary was an unknown beekeeper."   :D :doh:

Who would buy a 22 body mortuary truck? Scud maybe? Goober would but he buries them quickly I understand.

Goober bought a farm. ;)

This site claims a coverup of the McDonalds shooting in Germany. It shows a still from the video of the shooter that was plastered on the news. When I've seen the video I never thought the shooter looked like the little kid that was plastered on the news. At first it was said there were three shooters, that may well still be the case.
If it's correct he had lived there since 2011 and was a Syrian, not an Iraian that had been in Germany for two years. Who knows what is fact or fiction these days. You can't trust governments or the press.

What? They built a 22 body mortuary truck for Tasmania just before Port Arthur, even though we had never needed one that big anywhere in Australia before. It was never used again and they sold it a year or so later.
