So apparently, Melbourne is going to have mandatory masks.
But... they can be home made, and just have to cover the face.
As soon as I heard about it, my first thought for it’s effectiveness was South Park



Although the volcano duck and cover is slightly more stupid than the real duck and cover and slightly less stupid than this new home made mask rule.

This mask law is making for some fucking hilarious/depressing news.
First there was that dumb bitch at the checkpoint and now this dumb bitch at Bunnings.

being in lockdown sucks for a lot of people, but at least the Internet keeps us up to date on dumb bitches. :rofl2:

I don’t consent was fucking Hilarious! :rofl: I’m sure 99.9999% of people being arrested or fined don’t consent, but it still happens.

Excuse me, but can you prove that I didn't get sick from having dream sex with a witch? You can't. So STFU with your "science".

I guess it's finally time for us to see who here at BG are true believers or not. I myself take many precautions during my day to avoid demon sperm.

How many mask debates have you gotten into? :rofl: Don't ask questions if you don't want the answer.

Fun times ahead for Victorians.

Lots of businesses are being shutdown.
The exemptions from the retail closures announced by Mr Andrews include: supermarkets, grocery, food and liquor shops; convenience stores; petrol stations; pharmacies; post offices; hardware, building and garden supplies shops retailing for trade; maternity supplies; motor vehicle parts for emergency repairs only.

Personal care services including hairdressers will be closed, as will car washes and photographic film processors. Locksmiths, laundries and dry cleaners are exempt from the closures.

Retailers will also be able to work onsite for the purposes of fulfilling online orders.

We're getting your cases in SA. My gf's work evacuated the whole building with very little notice. Apparently someone on her floor has been exposed to it, so she's back home again. I never left home so it's fine for me :olol:

That's how we have pretty much been since the end of March. You get used to it in a few months, but the first month sucks.

It should be OK. The rules are a bit all over the place at the moment though.

Biggest problem of the pandemic so far...

Is it just me or has the mobile network in Australia been Abysmal for the past few weeks.

Like I know it’s been pretty bad for most of the year and I’m in a bad area for signal strength, but I’ve had non delivered texts, dropped calls all the time, quite often a speed that resembles 56K internet, and constant complete drops of network and or signal.
It’s been bad, but for the past 2-3 weeks, across 2 phones (prepaid and postpaid) and 2 networks (Telstra and Optus) it’s borderline unusable.

Is this just me going more crazy?
I mean dropped text messages are pretty bad.

But worse, I have to copy everything before I hit post on any sort of post I make.. because who knows if I’ve been dropped out and have to log in again Losing my post in the process.

The government asked Netflix to limit bandwidth so Australia’s internet could survive...

Maybe we have to ask All of Australia that are still allowed outside at night to give Melbourne all of the countries communications resources.?
