    Small venues vs. noise complaints

    Here in Poland, an Agent of Change policy was introduced a couple of years back, putting the onus on whoever has been there the shortest to carry out any necessary soundproofing: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2014-08-04/live-music-sound-proofing-law-change-in-victoria/5646570 Simple common sense law - should be far more commonplace than it is.

    Pet Hates!

    This. It took moving to Australia to realise my name was 'Matty' and not 'Ma-ae' as I'd always been called back home. I hate MaTTy.

    The World Cup 2014 Thread

    Frustrating game. I'm not convinced by any of our penalty shouts, but do feel Chile got so many very soft free kicks after we'd put in robust but fair tackles. Yet there were a couple of times late in the game when an Aussie was scythed at the edge of the box and nothing doing. Great save from the keeper from the Bresciano half-volley. I think if that goes in then Australia go on and win it. Ultimately, it's the terrible start that buried us. I was interested to see how the A-League players would cope at this level and the first 20 minutes they looked like rabbits in the headlights and it looked like it could get really embarrassing. Once they got to grips with things they were the better side though, especially second half. Just a pity because that was always going to be best chance at notching even a point. It'll be three straight defeats now for certain Still, the future looks bright. Matthew Leckie looked an absolute gun Looking forward to the England game tonight/tomorrow, but the time difference here in Poland is already fucking with me big time.

    Game of Thrones TV Pace (no book spoilers)

    Absolutely amazing episode. You always know what's coming when someone doesn't take their chance at finishing their opponent off, but still, what a death!

    Game of Thrones TV Pace (no book spoilers)

    I thought it was clearly Sansa, and couldn't believe when folk at work were treating it like a whodunnit. Reading some of the theories on here has made me re-think though, and I may have jumped the gun... but my money would still be on her. Although it's convenient the cup rolled over to her, it could be that she was always planning something similar but seen that as her chance and grabbed it. And why would The Fool feel the need to whisk her away if it wasn't her? I thought that bit was to show that Sansa and the Fool had concocted a plan after their meeting in the first episode. Also, Sansa saved The Fool from a death by wine at the hands of Joffrey, so it would make sense in a literary foreboding kinda way if they turned the tables on him. She obviously isn't lacking in motives either. It clearly wasn't Tyrion, he's too smart to get caught seemingly red-handed. Olenna is a possible shout though, she seems too wise to be a happy clapper whilst her daughter marries a cunt such as Joffrey. Great show, ken.

    Best/worst way you've left a job?

    Threw a football boot off the manager's head when I 'worked' at Sportsworld. Got the sack days later.

    The Running Thread

    I've signed up for a 10k taking place at the end of April. My only of competitive running was in the 2012 Inverness 10k which I managed in managed 49 minutes or so. I'd be chuffed to bits if I could get sub-50 again. I'm trying to stick to some sort of regular training schedule for it, but it's been hard to get out. 40+ degree days become the norm in Melbourne this time of year and it takes it all outta me to go just a few kilometres. Signed up to a gym recently to make use of the air-con. I've never felt all that comfortable on a treadmill but it's going well so far. Did 10ks in 69 minutes the other day whilst watching an episode of True Detective on the treadmill screen which was surprisingly easy.

    Andy murray rising tennis star?

    It's a pity Nadal won the other day. An all-Swiss final would've been great for the neutrals.

    +1 Not half as good as Bob's video for 'Must Be Santa' but it's good fun.

    Breaking Bad final episodes (contains spoilers)

    Satisfying ending .Vince Gilligan had said the obvious ending wasn't necessarily the wrong ending and I'm glad it played it safe. I'm just relieved they didn't pull an episode out their arse that may have ruined my perception of 5 seasons of genius. Walt was always going have to use his science to take down the nazis, but Gun Car was a bit of a let down for me. That aside, no complaints.

    GTA V

    Quick question for those who are good at these things... I've got a PS3 and XBOX. I prefer the controller and achievements on the 360, so I'd prefer to get it on that. However, I've got one of the first models and not sure if I've got 8gb free on the hard-drive. I could delete some of the retro games I've got installed but I'd prefer not to tbh. I've got a Toshiba Story Teller external hard-drive with a USB connection. Could I just install it on there? If so, would it then just be a case of playing it with the disc in the console as long as I had the hard-drive connected to the console? Also, are the graphics largely the same on both? If it's noticably better on the Playstation I'll probably get it on that, but if it's similar, and it's not too much hassle to install on the XBOX I'll get it for that I reckon. Thanks
