  1. My mum bought m&m's and freddo frogs today. I was wondering why until I realised that it's halloween. Nobody came.

      To be honest, I've only gone trick or treating like twice. The first time when I was like 10, and the second time when I was 16 and had to look after my younger cousin and her friend while they went.

      I've never gone. I only ever knocked on someone's door once and said 'trick or treat' as a dare. And it turned out that my school's receptionist lived there!!

      We shut the gate so no one would even come to our door :rofl:

       

  2. The papo is taking over arocalypse. Forget the spudpocalypse, the papocalypse is real. Don't think you can escape.

      I see. I have been enlightened as to the true nature of the papo.

  3. I sent my phone in over a month ago to get fixed. I finally got it back. Not only did they not fix it, the main issue I was having with it is WORSE than when I sent it in. I am fucking mad >:(.

      Update: I got a full refund. Now I just gotta pick out a new phone.

      Thank god!

      That phone was a serious mess

  4. I showed my friend THATpapo. Not many people have seen THATpapo. But those who have all agree it is a monstrosity.

      Be prepared for the absolute monstrosity that is THATpapo:

      I feel the strangles of romance repulsion

  5. Going to my first ace meet today! I'll be going with @Dodgypotato as well, so all is good.

  6. I won't be in chat from now until the 29th June. I have exams coming up and I want to do well, and chat is a massive hindrance to this. I've told the mods not to let me until chat until this date, but hopefully I have enough willpower to stay out on my own. I will still be hanging around the forums and updating everyone on the Steam group. I won't back down on my word about the Steam group just because of exams.

      Good luck! I don't want to have to kick you out of chat :P 

  7. Saw a monster of an insect at uni today. It was 2 inches long and about one and a half cm wide. Had to take a picture of it.

      Some kind of giant moth a think.

  8. Danny! You've overtaken spud for highest post count on the forums! How does this make you feel? What will you do with your newfound title?

      True. But back then I was just wondering how you guys had so many posts (I figured out how you did it since then).

      Congratulations on all that posting! :cake:

      Congrats! That's a lot of posts :icecream:

  9. At my uni there's a bookshelf where they put books which that anyone is allowed to take for free. I was walking to my first lecture for the day when I noticed that the recommended textbook for my physics course was on the bookshelf. Lucky me!

      Congrats for actually getting something usefull for free, usually when something is for free, people just want to promote themselves/their business and you get another biro that dies after a day...

    3. Louis Hypo

      Louis Hypo

      So do you go from Aihpen to just Aih?

    4. aihpen

      aihpen

      NOOOOO! There is a huge difference between biros and pens. Pens are much better and useful and awesome and great and fabulous... while biros are unnecessary and useless and annoying and stupid... I'm called aihpen and not aihbiro for a reason!

  10. Two pigeons landed on my friends arm while he was talking on the phone today. One of the greatest photos I have ever taken.

      haha they are so fearless in adelaide! You'll have to show me tomorrow. The other day mum was walking along Victoria square, and there was a pigeon in her path. She expected it to move but it just stood right in front of her and wouldn't budge. She had to walk around it.

    3. Spud

      Spud

      Wow! That's so cute!

    4. Zema

      Zema

      Well, I was eating pringles, and the pigeons were picking up the crumbs that fell out of my mouth. And so we had about 10 pigeons surrounding us. Some of them tried to land on the edge of a bench that was a sloped piece of metal, but as soon as they landed they starting slipping so they had to flap their wings to stay on. They looked pretty ridiculous.

  11. It got to 41.3°C on Christmas Day. And I had a power outage at night. Fun, fun, fun.

      I managed to avoid the power outage ;D And I don't go outside anyway, so the heat was fine ;~;

    3. Zema

      Zema

      The power outage was only in 3 areas including mine. Also my family and I were outside most of the day. 

    4. Dodgypotato

      You are a braver person than I.

  12. I seriously think we doubled the number of aussies on this site in the past two nights.

    1. RedNeko

      I was thinking that too

  13. What on earth happened on the 24/25th of August? Somehow we managed to get 332 people online O.o.

    1. RedNeko

      RedNeko

      I was wondering what had happened too O.o

      Assuming it includes Guests.. We've been noticing a lot of bots (just spider bots we think) so, guess that's all of them..

  14. Fibre optic internet is now installed. Before on ADSL2+:

    With fibre optic cables:

    I'm so happy right now :rofl:

      I'm moving in.

      I guess that a typical pickup line in Aussie is, 'I have fibre optic at home, you can come there to DL all the movies you need'.

  15. So the show "The Bachelor" just started in Australia, and my mum is watching it. It's just an awful, awful show. I make sure to tell my mum just how stupid the show is. You don't even have to be aro to know this show is stupid it's that stupid. Did I mention that I think the show is stupid?

    1. Dodgypotato

      Dodgypotato

      Dad is watching it as well. Dad decided to ask me whether I would date the main character. He was saying to mum about he was curious about 'what kind of guy' I would bring home. I was thinking 'you'll be wondering for a loong time...' He then mentioned you again, that I 'brought you home' or something.

    2. Zema

      Zema

      Oh god. I'm sorry you have to deal with that.

    3. aussiekirkland

      aussiekirkland

      My sister and her boyfriend love those shows... It's awful

  16. We decided to take our to dog to our soccer game today and while we were driving there she fell asleep and started snoring xD. I managed to record it so that all may see it.

     

  17. When you have to write a 2000 word essay, and it takes you six hours to write the first 600 words. This is going to take a while.

    1. Dodgypotato

      Dodgypotato

      Transfer to astro. None of that shit here! ;)

    2. Zema

      Zema

      But I like being able to do chemistry as well as physics.

    3. Dodgypotato

      Dodgypotato

      My friend is doing chem every year as well as astro. : P

  18. Student elections areon at the uni at the moment so there's just a whole bunch of people pestering you trying to get you to vote for them. Anyway, I really want to just point to my ace ring and tell them, "You see this ring? It means I don't give a fuck" and then just walk away.

    1. Dodgypotato

      Dodgypotato

      I've gotten super good at finding paths around them! They don't know how to take hints.

    2. Zema

      Zema

      I usually don't even acknowledge their existence when I walk past them.

  19. So, if you include arcade posts, I have just reached a grand total of 1000 posts (exactly at the time of writing). I think all this says about me is that I spend way too much time in arcade. Exactly 82.6% of my posts (at time of writing) don't contribute to post count.

    1. paporomantic

      paporomantic

      Congrats on hitting the milestone! :icecream: I hope Off Topic didn't subtract too much from your life quality.

    So i was sitting in a food court with dodgypotato, when we saw this. Is this where all the clones live?UxMyaX2.jpg

      This may or may not be the case :ph34r:

      We may have to investigate this further.

  21. I'm getting fibre optic internet installed tomorrow, so I'll be out for anywhere from a few hours to a few days. It's difficult to say at this point.

    1. paporomantic

      paporomantic

      Congrats on getting the fibre! (I've been told that internet access quality in Aussie is notoriously bad on average, and having this kind of a connection installed is already a big success.)

    2. Zema

      Zema

      Yes. I consider myself very lucky to be getting fibre optic internet this early in Australia.

  22. So my friend linked me a bot which tries to guess the content of an image. (Link here: https://www.captionbot.ai/) Anyway, this was one of the results:

    1. aussiekirkland

      aussiekirkland

      It got my dog sleeping on my lap (which it called a blanket cause I'm wearing a nightgown!)

    2. paporomantic

      paporomantic

      TYVM for letting us know about the bot! :arolovepapo:I've started a dedicated thread: http://www.arocalypse.com/forums/topic/528-the-captionbot-thread/

       

  23. Did anybody else notice that we broke the long standing record for most online yesterday?

    1. Dodgypotato

      Dodgypotato

      Oh noooo.. I was not online!

    2. owl
  24. Just failed my first test ever in my life. I didn't even know how to answer a single thing on there. Go me.

  25. Sent in my phone for repair. Just got in within the 12 month warranty so it's not going to cost a thing. Now I just gotta hope I never have to deal with all the problems I did ever again.

    1. aussiekirkland

      aussiekirkland

      Phone problems are so hard because if your phone flips out then you miss important texts, can't contact people and in my case get stranded at school some years ago, so I'm glad everything has worked out for you!
