    Must be funny when glass gets embedded in your face too then.

    I saw 2 kangaroos while riding down a trail at Ansteys hill in Adelaide both today and yesterday. Today one came straight at me and jumped off the trail about 5 metres in front of me after i had stopped. Yesterday I was riding the same trail and spotted 2 out the corner of my eye so i stopped and watched them for a bit and after about 2 minutes they jumped up the hill.

    Many things seem very off in that kangaroo video, assuming the footage is real and not doctored the audio doesn't sound right at all. The glass breaking noise does not match the noise a front windscreen would make, equally the loudest noise in that sort of incident would be the thud of the kangaroo hitting the car. Equally that engine noise sounds fairly generic and is always accelerating during he clip which doesn't feel like it matches the clip. Then there is the topic of microphones, no dash camera or phone is going to pick up the audio of an accident like that perfectly.

    So while the video may be real, they completely replaced the original audio with their own.


    I am pretty sure this video is more true to life and accurate:

    Interesting, never thought of that. Most normal people would never accelerate and hit a kangaroo on purpose, so I suppose that's a likely option.

    It's sad how people can just not care.

    You should check out the comment sections of Yahoo News Articles. They can be an absolute cesspool.

    I love how we're still accepting refugees even after they keep constantly blowing shit up. This is why terrorism is so common, "religion of peace" my ass.

    Eh, the blowing shit up is a small part of the issue, that stuff would happen anyway as it always manages to. Its all the other problems that you need to worry about.

    Man, I told myself I wasn't going to spend any extra money this month but Steam is going to make that difficult :p. I do still have $32.99 in my Steam Wallet from a refund, so I suppose that's fair game. Has anyone played The Long Dark?

    Its funny how Steam dies multiple times every year when they put on a sale, yet they still haven't been able pre-empt the demand and put enough servers up to keep the store online at all, never mind running at reduced speed. Your would think by now they would have gotten scalability during sales down to a precise science.

    Turns out The Long Dark is pretty good, if you're into survival games. I like the fact that there are no zombies or monsters, just you vs. nature. I got attacked by a wolf and actually screamed like a little girl. Video games never scare me like that. It's kind of exhausting too. I just turned it off and realised that every muscle in my body has been tensed up for the last five hours, not because it's scary but because it's stressful. You never know if you'll live to see the next day, and it never gets easier unlike most games.

    Im kinda tempted to get an original Xbox. I had a second hand one as a kid and am pretty sure my parents threw it away at some point, but I still have all the games I had back then. Could be a neat nostalgia trip, as well as a decent living room games console if I wish to use it that way.

    I had one of those too :D
    I'd wait a bit, as Spencer hinted about the 'OG Xbox' emulation thing might be coming to PC as well.

    Probably Windows 10 only though :rolleyes:
    Although my laptop is WIn10 and should run original Xbox games fairly well if they do a good job of it, since I think the original Xbox was x86.

    I just walked into town to the local retro games store, they had PS1's and PS2's that don't read disks for £5 each. I can't imagine they would be a difficult fix (probably via adjusting the laser), but they don't come with any cables, controllers or games (I don't own any, so may be an issue, though they have a load of games for £3 each). I never had a PS2 but enjoyed the mystery of it whenever I visited my cousins once or twice a year. So that could possibly be a fun little project for a living room box too. But I can emulate all that stuff very easily on my PC.

    Either way I am going to wait it out until I have confirmation from parents as to whether they still have the Xbox somewhere, not getting my hopes up though cause I haven't seen it in 10 years :p

    Id say the ps2 is a great old machine it still looks good 15 years later, it is backwards compatible and still holds the world record for most sold console
