    What the hell is it with everything on the internet ASSUMING we have unlimited bloody cable broadband and huge download rates?

    I blame the Government. Fix the bloomin' Internet Rudd! Or we'll bloody get you! *picks up a stump* You arseclown!

    Time to fight. Who is with me? Let's get them. All the rotarians, homeschoolers, the sad-stay-at-home cretins who fix their despair with self-medication and take all the glory of having HUGE internet quotas, loading torrents that are as high as 20 BLOODY GB (yeah, heaps useful) to cover their own unhappiness.

    Order another pizza you fat bludgers! Drink some more "soda"! Get out of the basement, or we'll kick you out! You know the way to the airport, and if you don't; JE has the engine running!

    JE, your thoughts?

    Just like the bloke up the road and his BUTTER. Ridiculous.

    I say we transform the hallowed VicFF halls into a staging ground for the "shamelessly elite" militia.

    We'll take the world by storm; one cognac snifter at a time.

    You should use utorrent; it allows you to pick and choose which files within a torrent to download. :p

    Well, given that I don't engage in illegal file-sharing I wouldn't know much about torrents, but if I did hypothetically engage in such behaviour, I'd probably already use uTorrent, and mroe be ranting about the general gumption of folks who host a 20gb+ torrent of anything. And of course, how rubbish broadband is here.

    I blame telstra.

    This is not a spam thread, it is a serious discussion about the state of web play in this nation!

    Speaking of the interwebs, torrents may be all we have if this Filter of God gets through the Senate.

    Well, we knew when we traded in the Rat King for the Ruddster that he had a bit of the ol' religious nut in him. We can't all have the luxury of an Obama to elect. :p

    Yeah, the censorship bill stinks, but it'll probably die in the Senate, and if push comes to shove, I'd prever Lindsey Tanner reading through my emails than say, Tony Abbott.

    Just sayin'. ;)

    So let me get this straight, you think "fat" americans are behind your lack of unlimited broadband. Now thats probably the stupidest, most racist thing ive heard in a long time. I dont know if you meant to offend me (ive let everyone know im from the US) or it was just plain stupidity.

    1)America is not a race, it's a nation.

    2)Perhaps you'd like to re-read the first two posts again, and have another shot at characterising the tone of this thread.

    3)Remember, the internets are very serious business.

    First off all rascism is not just about color, it could be your religion, nationality-or have they not gotten that far in your education yet. Second I was making a statement about the title-i found it offensive YES! How dare you come back at me accusing me of being the one wrong here. When other posters have an issue on here they are treated with respect, why not me? Thanks alot Mixo for turning this into a joke instead of making sure all who post here feel they are treated fairly.

    Sorry, oldbenk, if you took offense to the thread, it wasn't meant that way. PoT wasn't blaming Americans for the lack of good internet here. He was merely bemoaning the fact that because the US has pretty awesome net speeds and limits, he can't download entire movies/series etc in one ginormous hit. :p I'm positive it wasn't a personal attack against you, nor was it meant as any kind of descrimination. :)

    Skate is correct to a degree. I was concerned about the title of this thread, and consulted the Admins. They said the same as Skate, but if it's going to offend, maybe the author can consider a new title ;) One that gets the idea across without the offense?

    I'm getting a good giggle from all the self-righteous indignation, to be truthful.

    EDIT: http://www.pubmedcentral.nih.gov/articlerender.fcgi?tool=pmcentrez&artid=1449406&rendertype=abstract

    Do a search for "Obesity in America" on http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/ - you'll get 10,000 hits. Fat Americans = truth.

    Many, many Americans are worryingly fat.

    I propose a theory: many of these Fat Americans are fat partly because of their FAT internet access that leaves many anchored to their over-worked chairs downloading rubbish all day.

    Is downloading slang for eating these days? Those kids with the ebonics: it just keeps evolving!

    ..and isn't that great; evolution. Taught in schools, Western Secular values, devoid of hollow superstition and homeschooled homogenity.

    I laud your empiricism. THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD J-E!!! Refuting tantrums with SCIENCE. Rationality. Systems. Industrial Process. Men and Machines, working together to PRODUCE results.

    It's got me excited. Let's share a salad and go out and get in a fight.

    C'mon Victoria; We are Australia: AND SO CAN YOU.
