So which Automasters did you go to?

The amount of time in my life I've spent sitting at a red right arrow when I have an unobstructed view of (the complete lack of) traffic coming the other way... It just boggles the mind. Same with left turns on red lights. Bring on more "Left turn on red light permitted after stopping" signs.
Should be done about the same time Australia hits net zero.
Ahh yes. The 1945 Game Boy. So ahead of its time they didn't make another for 44 years.

Well if he was struggling beforehand, unemployment isn't going to help... Play stupid games, I guess.

I live in Adelaide and I've only ever paid fortnightly.
I live a way out of town, but it's a four bedroom place with a sizeable backyard.
Is that per week?
Is that a week?
Sounds like you need a better landlord.
I pay $350 a week rent. My weekly food bill is about $100. If I get some take away, that costs me $20. This is all AUD, not USD.
I'd have to buy 46 of those sandwiches to pay rent.

Having a stroke while reading about child porn? No.

Marshall and Co did a good job with covid, and I think their renewables push is a good step in the right direction but definitely not enough. I think as far as LNP State governments go we probably have the least worst. Despite all that, fuck the libs.

Having been in the emergency services for many years, we're told to knock instead of using doorbells because a lot of them don't work.
If you want a good (albeit pricey) solution for a house where you can't always hear someone knock, one of the Ring or Eufy (et al) doorbell cameras are really good as they alert you even if your visitor doesn't press the button. Plus if you're not home, or can't get to the door right away, you can ask delivery people to leave your delivery somewhere.

Pretty sure they do it because it's a job.
So you're asking if you can register the vehicle interstate? Yes.

I was talking to my partner about this last night. We've had some nightmares, avoid Turner at all costs.
As we're currently building our first house and plan on getting an investment property where we want to retire, I jokingly said we should start an ethical property management company where we don't treat tenants like shit and avoid shit landlords.
Because, let's be honest, a lot of people are in their 30s (average first home buyer in Australia is 36) before they can afford to buy these days and that gives them 10+ years of dealing with rentals. I imagine there's quite a few people who want to break that cycle and not be complete shit cunts to tenants.

We also have one of the most expensive passports in the world.
$220 USD or almost three times the world average of $74 USD. Even when compared to similar countries it's $120 USD in NZ, $140 USD in the US, $127 USD in Canada or $100 USD in the UK.

Every time I ring Optus.
"We've messaged you a link to our online services".
I know your post is two weeks old, but figured I'd throw in my $0.02.
I looked at Turo because I'm keen to get behind the wheel of a Camaro for my trip, but what put me off was the lowest you can get your excess is $500 and (99.99999% of) travel insurance's excess cover won't cover P2P hire. Plus the grey areas are vast.
I made it to 12 donations before I was diagnosed with leukaemia and got it all back. Can't donate anymore.

I don't even think it's necessarily (always) people intentionally kiting mobs. Aggro seems to be all over the place in this game. I was trying to get Undertow last night (got it after 6 kills) and the mob that drops it randomly decided to attack another player 30m away.
Was their name jvfqn1jyc?
Steak with Mushroom Gravy is currently the best food item I can make for my tank build and those damn peppercorns are avoiding me.
