    This does not bode well for the fate of the world then... Come to think of it, what is a Bode anyway, and where can I get one?

    Oh the current GU SRC is going down big time, down big time. I'm afraid to say Marvin, but IGNITE , intelligently led by the enigmatic, Socialist Worker speaker Paul Jacobs , is going to romp home.

    Ignote ran a clever campaign; they used the current SRC's mistakes and publicized them throughout uni.

    Paul, anything can happen you know ;) You will never know what effect it will have until you get the votes tallied!

    And as for the UQ election - we might know by this afternoon who has President, Treasurer and Secretary. :) I am confident of a swing to us - but by how much, we shall see!!!

    I'm surprised no one ever thought to do that before! I wonder if this will catch on?

    :_|

    It looks like we don't have the presidency. On the first count, it looked like we had just under 50% of the first preference votes.

    But after preferences for the other teams were distributed, the result was:
    MOJO: 1690
    Vision: 1740

    Noooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am very upset by this. I was *this* close to tears when I heard the result.

    For other results, we retained Business, Economics and Law faculty, lost Biological And Chemical Sciences faculty, and picked up Vet Sciences faculty.

    Other results will come soon, we should have result for Treasurer today, and Secretary maybe today or tomorrow. Anything could happen with these positions. A split executive would be very interesting indeed :)

    I probably won't pick up my council seat, at this stage, which is a major disdpointment for me personally.

    I'll keep you guys posted!!

    Doesn't suprise me, students of such diciplines tend to be Liberally minded!.

    No wonder I'm depressed having to study amongst such people [face_plain].

    Personally, I find the Environmental Science/ Science girls the nicest girls, kinda accords with their voting patterns :p

    Disclaimer, just my point of view :)

    Just thought you UQ people might like to know..

    The QLD Cashflow Club has just been formed!

    The club's basic mission is to get people together interested in investing to come and socialise in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere :)

    Anyway, I'll tell you guys when the next meeting is - in the meantime, go pick up a copy of Rich Dad, Poor Dad - it could change your life...... ;)

    GOOD NEWS!!

    We picked up Secretary (by five votes) and Tresurer (by 50 votes. Go Antonio and Gemma!!!!

    This basically means that we have CONTROL of the student union, and pretty much have the new President in a bad position!!!!!!

    YEAH BABY YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Ahhh I am in such a good mood still :)

    This is the best result that has been achieved by 'racist, classist, elitist, homophobic, sexist, dangerous, violent, right-wing, liberal scum' in about seven years. And the fact that we have control of cheques, means that WE (or Gemma) decides where all the mucho dinero goes!!!!

    Who's Gemma? :confused:

    The eternal battle between the rational and irrational.....

    For example, would you risk your life to save someone else?

    ......knowing full well that both of you could be killed, so instead of one death, you have two deaths = irrational.

    On the other hand, you won't be very popular if you just stand there and watch the person die now, would you? ;)

    (let's say, in this hypothetical scenario, that someone is hanging off a precipice, and if you attempt to pull them to safety, you risk being pulled down with them, as they are quite heavy...)
