    Some specific pics of the gear in question:

    Sometimes this stuff makes it interstate or even overseas to get sold or pawned, so keep an eye out. I've had my own archery gear stolen before, it sucks - trying to help out.

    To add to this, this guy is a left handed archer. This is rare enough that ordering in certain pieces of replacement equipment can take much more time than standard right handed kit. Really hoping this makes its way back to him.

    Someone should comment on his post, offering "no questions asked" rewards is illegal.

    Sucks, but it's to prevent people making a living stealing shit and waiting for rewards.

    I've never thought about how incredibly detailed the kit for Olympic archery is. I really hope his gear finds it's way home. It looks like he's spent a lot of time picking out the right bits for his perfect set up.

    Don't think I've ever eaten at Red Rooster. Maybe when I was at a mates house who never had take away unless he had a friend over. So they'd get Red Rooster for a treat.
    Also, they went hard into delivery, they got a fleet of branded cars about 5 minutes before these delivery companies arrived.

    My pal recently was really sad because the Russian girl he was dating turned out to be chasing a visa. That must suck so much to realize after thinking you're genuinely connecting with someone :(

    Also, entirely impractical - as of late April you now need an invitation to apply for an onshore spouse visa, and that invitation takes several months to approve. It's explicitly designed so current visas will expire before approval.

    It’s weird as fuck that when a player in the nrl gets caught out betting on his own games he’s (rightly) condemned and banned for life but when it’s an afl player then it’s the games fault and the 10 game punishment is seen as harsh.

    Players are informed that they aren’t allowed to gamble on nrl, I can’t speak for afl but if your dumb enough not to see the conflict of interest and damage to the code that this brings up then I can’t help you

    I mean three bets - but they weren't successful, $36 all up, but...mate! Mate - don't bet on your own games. Come on. Bet on Love Island in the UK, bet on politics..bet on the horses, poke some coins into the pokies.

    I mean everyone's dull at 22, I can tell you that (as a dull 22 year old).

    this is why I have a strong opinion on educating footy players/bloke sports people. They go out of sport and die.

    Their are thousands of markets that players can bet on. If the AFL banned players from gambling, then it'd be hypocritical. Blaming the gambling ads on this, is like blaming alcohol advertising on domestic violence.

    From a distance it looks like a dystopian cyberpunk metropolis, but if you get closer you find it’s actually surfers, which is worse.

    Moved here from Sydney a few years ago. I think it's a great place. I really don't get all the GC hate. I think mostly it's people conflating Surfers Paradise (which isn't great, but it's not awful) with the entire Gold Coast.

    Southern GC is pretty chill and for a bonus we get this awesome view.

    I’ve never understood the hate for the coast. People whine, complain, continuously say it’s a dump, yet every weekend when the sun is shining people flock to the beaches. If you all hate it so much then please stop coming & congesting the roads.

Graph of federal polling accuracy

Australia

COMMENTS

  • cunt_cake_
    70 points Jun 14,2019, 12:40am

    I made this graph after listening to a recent Guardian podcast on the accuracy of 2019 polling. I think this visualisation really shows what a marked deviation this year was.

    The podcasters (Katherine Murphy and Peter Lewis) concluded that there is a rising trend of disengaged voters who can’t be accurately put in one basket or the other. Previously, these people were simply excluded from polling and for whatever reason this didn’t generate any deviation, either because they were numerically negligible or because when the chips were down they went with the herd.

    In 2019 there was either a sudden increase in disengaged voters, or (more likely) the gradually increasingly number of disengaged voters were suddenly corralled into voting against the general trend. The automatic exclusion of these people is what caused the inaccurate polls. They simply couldn’t say who they would vote for, and ended up deciding at the last minute, and so it was impossible to include them.

    Peter Lewis proposes rethinking 2PP polling to include undecided voters, so as to hedge against inaccuracies. This is already commonplace in the United States, where polling has never been as accurate as they have historically been here.

    Rumour has it that internal polling in the Coalition was much more accurate than either the public polling or Labor’s internal polling, and they were making assumptions that turned out to be correct. They took account of disengaged voters and estimated roughly how many they could place in their basket based on how the campaign was shaking out: where the pollies of either party were campaigning and on what issues and how these related or didn’t relate to the presumed interests of disengaged voters. Basically, they developed a much more complicated formula that others will need to follow to increase accuracy.

    As a Bloody Leftie™ this is what has me particularly down. A big loss that I know is coming like 2013? Sure. A knife-edge loss like 2016? Sure.

    But when the polls have their worst federal 2PP failure since before I was born? Yeah. That stings a bit.

    When the highest disengagement in 100 years is involved, stuff like this is just personal ego grooming from a side unwilling to admit what actually happened.

    Edit: Reasons for disengagement. I list in a later reply.

    Many complicated parts are being ignored for results.

    • Palmer United political bullshit.

    • Media Bias(especially private networks) favour conservatives, and any bullshit that comes out of their mouths.

    • The major swing demographic hinging on political misinformation based around franking credits and negative gearing.

    • Middle to high income brackets actually shifting the other way, while being represented in the media by self congratulating conservatives.

    • Donkey Votes were higher than the difference.

    • Shifty political signs

    I can probably find more if you like.
