Australian federal "border force" will be checking visas at random on the streets of Melbourne today. This is not a drill.

That’s right border force officers will be stopping people at random (I wonder what the people they stop will look like? HMMMMM probs not the British backpackers who are the biggest group breaching visa limits) in the streets to check their immigration status and visa conditions. This is a real thing that is actually happening in 2015 in Australia.

There’s a snap action against it at 2pm on the steps of Flinders st station and if you can be there, please come!

WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK

http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-08-28/border-force-to-check-visas-on-the-streets-of-melbourne/6732086

This is legit. This is not april fucking fools day.

… fuck them. My accent (upper class Australian) can sound british if I go fully posh. I’m not carrying ID this weekend.
Let’s see what they make of that.

Know your rights.

This is good information.

Further to the stuff above

http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/ma1958118/s192a.html

The Migration Act 1958.

First of all, be polite. Carry a pen and paper and write down everything they say to you.

If stopped by border force, you do not have to ID yourself unless they actually have authorisation from a Senior Authorising Officer.

Request the name, ID number and home station of any officer who speaks to you. Then request that they provide an authorisation for requesting that you ID yourself.

The authorisation cannot come from the person who is asking you for your ID.

… be very polite and very wary.

There is a difference between police and these “Border Force” operators. Police have greater powers. If Police want your ID, as above: Pen and paper, write down their name, ID number, rank and place of duty.

They cannot request your ID without reasonable suspicion that you’ve been involved with a crime. Always be polite but:

They should tell you what they suspect that you’ve done before asking for your ID.

Be safe, peeps. This is not the country that I want to live in.

White people: we all know they’re gonna be racially profiling people whatever they’re saying to the contrary. The best thing that you can do is be a witness. Get it on your phone. Don’t let them get away with it.

Star trek the next generation was great disability representation bc it didnt show an ideal future where people with disabilities were eliminated or their disabilities treated as non existant (it even had an episode that showed how horrible the eugenic breeding out of disability is), and instead had disabled characters who were given proper accomodations, shown to be equally valued as their able bodied peers, but still had their disabilities

This got even funnier when I realized that to shoot it, essentially someone had to hurl a massive rat puppet at Cary Elwes.

NO NO I HAVE SAID THIS BEFORE BUT IT’S EVEN BETTER

This is the best movie trivia EVER

Boyfriend (drabble)

arcadia1995:

@ariella884 challenged the @voyager-book-club with the prompt: “Pick one character and have them call out JC on their feelings/attraction for one another.” Thank you @devoverest and @cheile for beta work. 


“Is Commander Chakotay your boyfriend?”

“No, Naomi, we’re just friends.”

Naomi looks up at me with a puzzled expression.

“But he brings you coffee.”

“Yes, but-”

“And he gives you birthday presents.”

“True.  However-”

“And you always come to parties together.”

“That still doesn’t mean-”

“And he brings flowers to your ready room. And he worries about you when you’re off the ship.  And you have dinner together a lot.”

I open my mouth ready to articulate another denial, but I cannot find the words.

“I think he’s your boyfriend!”  Naomi triumphantly declares and flounces away with her Flotter doll.

NET NEUTRALITY ISN’T DEAD, CRA IS GOING TO HAPPEN!

mrpbubshouse:

CALL YOUR SENATORS! MAKE THIS HAPPEN! SAVE NET NEUTRALITY!

caramelalpaca:

The best thing about Kira Nerys is that she is strong and brutal, she won’t hold punches, but she’s also kind and hurt and lonely and she is allowed to be all of these things. No one thinks she’s weak because sometimes she cries, sometimes she’s sad and scared and at no point is that ever even implied to take away from her strength. On the surface she seems like the classic strong woman with a shitty background who has no emotions but the reality is that’s just not realistic, of course she feels things but it doesn’t make her less of a fighter and there is not a single moment in the whole show that makes it seem like her feelings are a girly weakness. Anyway, I could genuinely rant for weeks about how complicated and wonderful Kira Nerys as a character is but I won’t.

Whenever I see an episode where Crusher speaks seriously about romance I just want to say “You fucked a ghost, Beverly”.

I always make sure to add that it was a candle ghost.

If she really did fuck a ghost I’d be willing to listen to her advice but she fucked a fake ghost

& the fake ghost was her dead nana’s booty call. like.

A Little Friendly Encouragement

ace-aro-fandroid:

Many of Data’s first attempts at humanity go… not so well…

Like his very first attempt at spontaneous idiomatic speech

imageimageimage

mostly because of the unreceptive audience

imageimageimage

or his first attempt at comedy

image

but

image

every now and then

image

we see someone believe in him

image

and he slowly begins to improve

image

becoming more loving

image

and, consequently, more lovable

image

and it all goes to show

image

you should never underestimate the power

image

of a little

image

friendly

image

encouragement.

One thing that has changed with how I view media is I no longer have any trust for the scenes where the villain is secretly recorded and broadcasted, showing their evil plan for all to hear, and then everyone immediately turns on them.

In reality at least half the villain’s base would be like “ok but they didn’t ACTUALLY mean it, clearly fake”

Or, “He didn’t really say that it was all staged.”

“It was just locker room talk!”

Hey now, only SOME of their followers would try to call it fake. MOST of them would instead just embrace and support the evil plan wholeheartedly.

If Batman Returns was made today, the people of Gotham would probably applaud Oswald Cobblepott’s “I played this stinking city like a harp from hell!” rant that Batman recorded as proof that he Doesn’t Talk Like a Politician

It did however correctly predict that rich straight white men will happily endorse something they found covered in filth in a sewer for political office if they think that it will help them stay rich and pursue their Evil Hateful Agenda so in some ways it’s still very accurate

[PLEASE KEEP ANONYMOUS BC I DON’T WANT TO BE FIRED]

I’m a bra fitter in the UK. Won’t name the store, but it’s one that’s internationally popular so occasionally we get people from abroad coming in to bulk-buy English bras because they fit better and are cheaper.

A few months ago a German woman, who didn’t speak any English, came in for a fitting with her two daughters to translate for her. What she didn’t know was that I speak near-fluent German because I used to work in Bochum as a primary school teacher.

I fitted her for an hour (she wanted a LOT) and she slagged me off the whole time - “she doesn’t know what she’s doing / she’s so young– have they given me an intern? I want a professional / I won’t take fashion advice from a girl that heavy / she’s not using european sizing, is she stupid” - and her daughters translated VERY favourably, both of them clearly quite uncomfortable with the situation.

I put on a brave face for the whole thing, pretending not to notice, and then as I was putting in her customer info (we keep a record of all our customers) one of the daughters complimented me for pronouncing their surname correctly.

I said thanks, and casually dropped into conversation - in perfect German - that I used to live in Germany and spoke the language.

Watching all the colour drain from that woman’s face as she realised what just happened, and seeing her two daughters quietly lose their collective shit behind her, was pretty glorious. Almost made it worth it.
