Vent. Car accidents. [message #3265875] Tue, 21 April 2015 11:04

Car got hit 2 weeks ago. Picked it up from smash repairers yesterday and while driving it straight home it got hit again! Evil or Very Mad this one worse than last I'm nice and sore this morning.
Both due to people driving too fast and not paying attention on very wet roads. Just so annoying that people don't realise the consequences of their actions Sad
Lucky no one was seriously hurt, everyone walked away both times so I know that's the most important thing it's just frustrating.
A new policy change with my insurance that confused me meant I thought I was still automatically covered for hire car but I'm not not, so luckily 1st accident hire car was covered through other person's insurance. I was then going to buy/add the comprehensive hire car back to policy as soon as I got the car home yesterday as it was suggested to me the insurance company would be weird about it if I tried to add it while it was still at a repairer's, but obviously that was a stupid idea. Guy that just hit me doesn't have insurance and it did a lot of damage so he's going to have enough problem paying for my car so I dare say he is not going to offer to pay my hire car as well (what insurance suggested I do). So I get to fork out about a grand for one as it is a requirement for work Sad

So on my new car (due to be picked up this week), it has a really old 40 channel UHF, and the factory fitted radio.

I am used to having my iphone connect via bluetooth for music/phone calls etc.

Considering I will eventually get an 80 channel digital UHF, and I need the radio to have iphone connectivity, is there a magical beast that does all of this in one?

Or recommendations about good quality head units that I can play music through/phone calls/radio, and the separate UHF.

POLICE have poured cold water on reports that a number of horses had been shot in the Yarra Valley earlier this month.
Other media outlets reported last week that a horse in Dixons Creek had been shot, after a Facebook post from the horse’s distressed owner.
The post, which was put online on Monday 6 April, featured numerous photos of the horse, with a wound resembling a gunshot, and the owner said they had heard of other horses being fatally shot at the same time.
Numerous follow-up posts appeared from outraged residents, calling for the shooter to be found.
But Yarra Ranges Criminal Investigation Unit Detective Sergeant Mark Smithwick told the Mail that there had been no shooter, with a vet-check confirming the horse had impaled itself.
“There’s nothing in it,” Det Sgt Smithwick said.
“A vet checked the horse and it had impaled itself on something.
“It had some sort of impaling-type wound, like a stick.”

I need some help, im trying to find more information on equine nursing. finding it really hard to find a job in a vet clinic, as you have to already have a job before you start the course, which to me doesnt make sense.. But if there are any vet nurses out there who can help me out, tell me what i need to do to have more luck!

Hey everyone,

I recently got a decent video camera, not the best but a good one. It has 720 HD and 20p with 16x.

It films amazing with the sun behind me with auto scene settings, but I can not figure out how to make it look good in the shade. It looks really horrible and almost purple like in the shade.

The instructions do not mention anything about a setting that helps with shade.

I would really appreciate it.

I'm bed bound for 3 days after just having had my neuromas burnt off with a high frequency radio pulse.
Neuromas are terribly common apparently so does anyone out there suffer from them?
I've had mine for 10 years but only just doing something about them now. Apparently I had two and didn't even know it.
This newest procedure was recommended over surgery as it's less invasive and just as, if not more effective. Here's hoping.

A lady goes to the bar on a cruise ship and orders a Scotch with two drops of water. As the bartender gives her the drink she says,

'I'm on this cruise to celebrate my 80th birthday and it's today....'

The bartender says, 'Well, since it's your birthday, I'll buy you a drink. In fact, this one is on me.'

As the woman finishes her drink, the woman to her right says, 'I would like to buy you a drink, too.'

The old woman says, 'Thank you. Bartender, I want a Scotch with two drops of water.'

'Coming up,' says the bartender

As she finishes that drink, the man to her left says, 'I would like to buy you one, too.'

The old woman says, 'Thank you. Bartender, I want another Scotch with two drops of water.'

'Coming right up,' the bartender says.

As he gives her the drink, he says, 'Ma'am, I'm dying of curiosity. Why the Scotch with only two drops of water?'

The old woman replies, 'Sonny, when you're my age, you've learned how to hold your liquor. Holding your water, however, is a whole other issue.'

Do not go gentle into that good night.

Bob joins a very exclusive nudist colony. On his first day he takes off his clothes and starts wandering around. A gorgeous petite blonde walks by him and the man immediately gets an erection. The woman notices his erection, comes over to him grinning sweetly and says: "Sir, did you call for me?"
Bob replies: "No, what do you mean?"
She says: "You must be new here; let me explain. It's a rule here that if I give you an erection, it implies you called for me."
Smiling, she then leads him to the side of a pool, lies down on a towel, eagerly pulls him to her and happily lets him have his way with her.
Bob continues exploring the facilities. He enters a sauna, sits down, and farts. Within a few seconds a huge, horribly corpulent, hairy man with a firm erection lumbers out of the steam towards him. The Huge Man says: "Sir, did you call for me?"
Bob replies: "No, what do you mean?"
The Huge Man: "You must be new here; it is a rule that when you fart, it implies you called for me."
The huge man then easily spins Bob around, bends him over the bench and has his way with him. Bob rushes back to the colony office. He is greeted by the smiling naked receptionist: "May I help you?"
Bob says: "Here is your card and key back. You can keep the $500 joining fee."
Receptionist: "But Sir, you've only been here a couple of hours; you only saw a small fraction of our facilities.”
Bob replies: "Listen lady, I am 58 years old, I get a hard-on twice a month, but I fart 15 times a day!

Sorry guys, yet another career question Very Happy

I'm about 2/3 through a degree with 2 years left, designed to be a total career change from what I do now. I study part time, which most of the time is good, except for the length it ends up taking! But I am chugging through it... However, as one does when change is on the horizons, every so often I get impatient, see what's out there and dream of the future opportunities.

My current job... is boring and I've no interest at all in the activities that the department does, I get given little work, so basically I spend the day waiting for something to come up. Depressing when I think of the time I've got left until the degree is over.

I want to start making the moves to get out of my current job, whether I get into something that's related to my study or not, I've no idea.

Is there anyone here who has successfully made a major career change? Have you done so before your study was complete?

Step away from the computer,
I have already shared this link, but couldn't find the old thread so I'm popping it up again as the deadline is getting close and Freda's project is still quite a way short of the amount needed to pay for the work.

Here's a link to a brief background on the project on La Trobe's website http://www.latrobe.edu.au/news/announcements/2014/crowd-fund ing-free-the-frog

Here's the link to the Pozible project page http://www.pozible.com/project/178150

Bit of background info on the project. Freda is an Honours student this year who approached Bert with this particular project in mind, because she loves frogs and had concerns about endocrine disrupters being used locally in pesticides due to their possible effects on aquatic wildlife.

Some screening work has shown that our local Melbourne waterways, in particular the Yarra River, contain higher levels of the particular endocrine-disrupting pesticide that Freda is working on, than those required to have significant negative effects on aquatic insects like Daphnia.

As is the case with all research, it's very hard to get funding for projects that don't have commercial support (and this type of work very rarely gets commercial support due to the nature of the work), so Bert has spent months working to get the first ever LTU crowd-funding project up and running. It's been a big undertaking, so this project is not only important for the frog research itself, but also because other researchers in the university, who also work on 'non-sexy' topics, are looking on to see whether crowd-funding is a possibility for their work too.

If everyone could please spread the word far and wide to try and get the word out to anyone interested in the effects of water pollution on wildlife, and if you are willing to donate all support is very greatfully received here in the lab.

"Dog owners and breeders in Melbourne, are you interested in participating in an expert panel to validate a pet dog welfare auditing system? If so, please contact Tiffani at T.Howell@latrobe.edu.au to get more information.

It will involve coming to La Trobe University, Bundoora for 3 separate meetings spaced at least 2 weeks apart, at a time that's convenient for all panel members."

Tiffani is particularly looking for breeders at the moment, so if any VH dog breeders (or trainers who have their own dogs would also be great) are interested and might be available to come to LTU for these sessions, it would be great to hear from you.

I have three dogs and I was buying a large bag of Meaty Bites at Big W, and while standing in line at the check out, the woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
On impulse, I told her than no, I was starting The Meaty Bites Diet again, although, I probably shouldn’t because I’d ended up in the hospital last time, but I had lost 20kg before I woke up in intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV’s in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way it works is to load your pants pockets with Meaty Bites, and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry and that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again. I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a guy who was behind her.
Horrified, she asked if I'd ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned ?
I told her No ! It was because I’d been sitting in the street licking my balls and a car hit me !!!
I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard, as he staggered out the door.
Silly woman……. Why else would I buy dog food ?!

I've just had an ankle reconstruction and would love to hear your experiences on recovery especially when the pain stops being so excruciating. They found the membrane (i think thats what they called it) around my ankle joint was torn and swollen and they had to do a fair bit of work on it so it was a pretty extensive reconstruction.

I want a mixture of the sports industry and the equine industry so thats why I feel physiotherapy is such a wonderful fit.
