The Animal Justice Party is preferencing liberals Zed Seselja over the Greens Simon Sheikh in the Senate. They are also top of the ballot paper, which means they will get the donkey vote. If you’re voting for the libs anyway, obviously it won’t matter.
If you think you’re voting for animal welfare however, you’re actually sending [...]
Raiders players must be embarrassed putting their hands out for payment particularly over the last 3 weeks – if they are then they should be!

GPO BOX 158,
Canberra City ACT 2601
I don’t normally make a big fuss of things as I am quite a tolerant person, however the other day I had a couple run ins with ACTION BUS drivers. Both incidents occurred at the same intersection within 1 hour of each other. One face value they may [...]
Hi fellow rioters my fiancé and I are looking for an acoustic guitarist/band and mc for our wedding this year, does anyone have any recommendations?
Look forward to hearing everyone’s opinions!
I was riding home along Bindubi St bike path, Thursday night, dark, cold and raining.
Suddenly, along the roadside, I hear a loud gunshot. I look over to see a man pointing a gun towards the ground where someone was lying.
It took a second or two to make sense of the scene. It was an [...]

The first magpie attack of the season was reported on the 23rd of August last year.
Coming up to the anniversary of that date, I wanted to invite Rioters to add pins to this google map http://goo.gl/maps/SSdGr, as swooping magpies are encountered this season.

I really want to make gua bao, except that I don’t actually want to make the bao part (even David Chang of Momofuku says he buys his bao).

Trying to find a place in Canberra, preferably on the North side, to get my in-fills done.
So far the one place I tried didn’t sterilise their equipment and did a horrid job.
Given here in the ACT, we won’t have any change to the status quo when it comes to this federal election. Both lower house seats will go labor and senate will be labor first the liberal second.
For a bit more fun can you guess what the order of the minor party’s will be in [...]
