Re: I just registered for a UK postal vote - will you?

Particularly in the run up to Christmas.

No idea why they couldn't sort out online voting - if it's good enough for your money, it's at least good enough to vote between two muppets, neither of...

Re: A barbie thread for the barbie

I was thinking more like the Spartan Agoge where the proto-adults are sent out into the wilderness to survive for themselves, prior to being considered adults and citizens. Might need a little...

Re: Space Space Baby

Small degree of steering, but mostly the ship has to do all the hard work.

I can see 'space surfing' being a thing in future years.

Starhopper is finally due to hop untethered, up to 20m on the...

Re: Space Space Baby

In case you haven't seen it, SpaceX have released video from the fairing they managed to catch recently, showing the reentry ionization plasma etc. and finally capture in the net of the Ms Tree.

Re: How much do I need to earn?

Actually I'm not.

What I'm saying is that in looking for jobs, if you look around the area you are interested in, you will often find high paying opportunities that you, personally, can exploit,...

Nice.

So you don't understand, but decide to throw insults anyway. Who was the one that was daft?

Re: Fund me ..... Israel Folau

There have always been limits on what you can say. You can't threaten someone with physical harm without consequence. Similarly you can go over the top in abusing them verbally. It's as much about...

Re: How much do I need to earn?

Depends. I just think that somewhere in the intersection of skills and opportunities, there's usually an answer in six figures. Might not want to do that job, but it's usually there somehow. Start by...

Re: How much do I need to earn?

I assume $40k for a starting point. So if you earn more, you should be OK, although the tax man will steal a progressively larger slice. Kids take money though.

Thing is, they aren't really extreme - it's basic dogma for the religious crowd.

Thing is, he did read the contract. Sufficiently to say that he wouldn't agree to the social media clause, which RA then accepted. They are not going to be in a good way when they get to court and...

Re: Amazon incoming ...

Yeah, but you are assuming their long term plan is to use people, rather than automation. Personally I'd say the 'job creation' is for the politicians - and they are looking to make the delivery has...

Well, they will be trying to deliver during the day, and after work, so unless their management is stupid, they shouldn't be on the road when they can get caught in traffic snarls and just burn...

Err, I think you just pointed out why autonomous delivery is going to be the future. No good saying that auspost is going to be doing it, then saying "but the postie won't".

Re: Amazon incoming ...

Well, we know the drones are already on their way. And I'd say within 5-7 years and autonomous road borne deliveries will be a thing. Unlike auspost, they will deliver in the evenings when people are...

How did they manage to screw that up?

I mean, the model was right there in front of them, and it's hardly difficult to do.

As for the delivery staff issue, I do wonder if they are waiting for...

Err, they are already delivering, to the door, at a time you select, and into the evening too.

That's the point, they are already better than auspost in the delivery stakes, and you already go to...

Most of the problem at the moment is that nobody is really buying anything, since wages growth has flatlined for a decade. And much of that is due to silly housing prices soaking up free cash for no...
