Bruno was first seen in Baron Cohen's TV series, Da Ali G Show, in which his interviews with unwitting fashion designers and models proved scathingly satirical, if a little like shooting fish in a barrel. -So true.

I wonder if the gay community will get into an uproar about Bruno, like the Kazakh got into an uproar about Borat.

I haven't seen any negative/counter publicity yet...

"It's not taking him back to square one - it's square minus three,"

He's not very good at making metaphors with maths...

yes =( *wipes tears*

I haven't seen it yet, only read the SMH article.

that was a joke... did you really think schumacher had the spare time to film and drive cars around a track in the uk week after week?

I am the Stig. The illusion is ruined, I want my smoke and mirrors back...

Obviously I can't comment on operability issues (which goes for comments I make on any car other than a Mazda6 xD) but visually, I don't find any of them exciting, except the conceptual Aero. That was fking cool!

Wiki says it may make an appearance in Transformers 2! That'll make my day - an actual cool car in Transformers...

i personally thought the saabs of late look pretty cool, and their distinctiveness in convertibles is noteworthy. their turbo engines also had good rolling acceleration. pity they're always fwd, and they're reportly plagued by quality issues. saab was about the only gm brand that i liked.

but maybe i'm biased because jerry seinfeld drove one on the show.

Saab may actually create an exciting car now...they make aeroplanes, how could they not make an exciting car before...


Now this is truly cold blooded. Any halfwit down the chain would have recognised the debt was beyond limitation period but decided to turn a blind eye because they knew the old woman wouldn't/couldn't defend the proceedings. The claim therefore was not scrutinised (if it was, it would likely have been thrown out given lack of contact).

Of course now that the liquidator's had his hands in it, bills have to be paid. It's a pity she didn't do something about it earlier. The solicitors who initiated this claim may have some explaining to do...

The Chaser sketch was uniquely Australian: insensitive but not malicious.


If I change my name to Marco Pangallo it will increase my callback chance by 10%!

How is it that Peugeot can win the most grueling event of motor sports (designed for endurance) yet completely fail at normal cars?

an article i read said he attacks on indians were mostly from people with middle eastern backgrounds. it also said they used to target the elderly, but they have since moved away from the area.

Terminator is decent, obviously doesn't come close to the Glass breaking industrial symphony of T2.

But it's got quite a few solid moments and Sam Worthington's character is awesome.

Worth watching if you're a Terminator fan.

Da fark is a racialist?

More racialists

I heard a similar claim on Hack by an Indian victim. I found it incredulous that the attacks in the West predominantly come from the white community. I mean, they are vastly outnumbered in those areas that it would be unwise to start something they likely couldn't finish. That's what the shire is for.

In any case, it's probably true that the attacks are motivated by greed and not race. They just happen to pick on Indians because there is a preconception that they are soft (diminuitive, James) targets for all the reasons that Russell Peters explains. Indiano? No Indiano! Nohhh...?

Chinese are also diminuitive by nature, but conventional prejudice says that we have Kung Fu (Bruce Lee, Jet Li, Jackie Chan, Donnie Yen, Sammo) and they don't want to mess with that shit. Respective martial arts apply to other Asian countries.

What do the Indians have? They have that tractor video that Alexis sent me.


Another retarded PR exercise like when they changed TER to UAI

is the new terminator movie worth watching?

We are a pretty insensitive culture.

Despite all the racism, that single line makes me proud to be Australian! Insensitive, but not malicious. That's my vision of Australia and we are already half way there...so proud...*wipes tear*. So if any of you are still curious, my jerkness is environmental, not genetic.

With digital content, SMH is blurring the lines between tabloid and broadsheet. I started reading The Australian because SMH went down *ahem* for a period of a few weeks and have now found they have a much better layout with diverse and dedicated pages including Legal Affairs.
