Semester 2 Booklist

July 28, 2003

I hope there’s still a library on campus…

Cost Accounting 11ED $99.85
Management Accounting 6ED $101.70
Financial Accounting in Australia 5ED $93.37
Taxpak 2 : Core Student Taxpak 2 2003 $146.15
ACC2360 Lecture Guide $28.85
LAW2410 Study Guide $15.85
ACC2250 Lecture Guide $13.70
Order Total: $499.47

Needless to say I won’t actually be buying any of these ridiculously priced books. The lecture guides may be worth the investment, but there’s no way I’m spending $450 on books that we probably won’t open at all during the semester.

One of the books is $146 for chrissakes. Even if it came with a TV it would still be overpriced.

Yobbo Idol

July 28, 2003

Due to my lack of things to blog about, I’ll take this opportunity to let all my loyal readers fight amongst themselves in the comments box. In the spirit of Australian Idol and other crap reality shows, the best performers will be given the opportunity to spruik for non prime-time lifestyle shows at the end of the series.

Suggested topics for my very original open mike post:

Why Wilson Tuckey is so great.
What new law Geoff Gallop will come up with next.
How much you’d pay to see Tim Blair and Tim Dunlop go at it in a bare-knuckle bout.
Who’s the best looking Oz Blogger. (Anyone answering “Margo” will be banned)
Good ways to annoy Greenies on the first day of Semester 2 tomorrow.

Go crazy.

Singapore Streaker

July 28, 2003

siagirl_country.jpgSingapore Airlines is by far the best carrier in our region in terms of service and value for money. Their entertainment system features 10 video feed channels and a Super Nintendo on the back of all seats, even in economy. Recently they have been experimenting with even more entertainment options:

SINGAPORE (Reuters) – An off-duty Singapore Airlines steward took off all his clothes and threw the contents of his wallet around as stunned passengers on a flight from Australia looked on, a newspaper has reported.

Singapore’s Straits Times said the 31-year-old man had been travelling as a passenger on the flight from Perth in Australia’s west to Singapore on July 11. An airline official said the man has since been placed on medical leave.

The good news is that the male steward will likely be replaced by one of the legendary “Singapore Girls” who make the SA experience all the more enjoyable. Come to think of it, if I had to spend all day surrounded by those chicks, I’d probably go crazy and tear off all my clothes too. Poor guy.
