it’s weird watching Australian dramas on the ABC because no matter how good they are (some are quite good) there will always be an actor who was on Playschool who turns up and throws you off
this time of year is so depressing for australians on tumblr….. i don’t think u understand…. y’all r like ‘I’M GONNA WEAR ORANGE ALL MONTH LONG AND SHOVE PUMPKINS UP MY ASS AND SLEEP IN A BED OF LEAVES!!’ and australians are down here like ‘a bunch of birds are probably going to try to kill me if i attempt to go outside and i’m five seconds away from getting heatstroke’

“You know when you’re drowning you don’t actually inhale until right before you black out. It’s called voluntary apnea. It’s like no matter how much you’re freaking out, the instinct to not let any water in is so strong that you won’t open your mouth until you feel like your head’s exploding. But then when you finally do let it in, that’s when it stops hurting. It’s not scary anymore, it’s… it’s actually kinda peaceful.”
So apparently, these Draft National Security Laws were put forward in the Australian Parliament in the last 10 days. It appears to be in direct response to what happened with Snowden in the US in regards to the NSA, and will impact heavily on individual rights to whistle blow, as well as journalist’s ability to report on said whistle blowing.

This is some Orwellian level bullshit being pulled here in the name of “national security”. Make no mistake, this is an attack on our privacy and freedom of speech! Law abiding Australians should not be punished like this just to find a potential needle in a haystack!
BUT WE CAN STOP THIS!
We need to get the ALP on our side. They have the power to stop this from getting through! We need 38 votes in total, so we need ALL OF THEM TO AGREE TO OPPOSE IT BEFORE 27th October 2014!
Please SHARE THIS, whether you’re Australian or not! We need to get the word out.Talk to your friends, and family. Talk to your local member, and any Labor members so that we can get on side! We need the attention of 38 people who have the power to stop this from becoming a reality!
two things fucked up about this country:
1. the political climate
2. the actual climate
