I could've found plenty of better ways to spend what would've totaled $170 (granted, we were using a $100 gift voucher) for (a) a seat in the theatre, (b) 2 glasses of wine; (c) a small serve of nachos; (d) a lukewarm pizza; and (e) a bottle of fizzy water. The nachos and pizza clocked in at $24 bucks each. The seats was about $42 a pop, plus the obligatory booking fee.

For some ridiculous reason the cinema's air con was set somewhere between 'freezing' and 'wintertime in Greenland.'

Glad I've finally experienced it, but I don't know what the fuss is all about.

I prefer the West Lakes Gold Class set up and its only $20 a ticket. And the dip platters are sensational.
And you get the big screen unlike Marion.


Im a West Lakes man myself, but....

If you go to Parabanks, you get a pleather recliner in all cinemas, jumbo versions of popcorn and drinks, and a decent size screen.

The food in all Gold Classes is shit, and listening to people eating and whispering about who gets what on the plate is annoying,

Only thing about Parabanks is navigating the unlit carpark at night.....bit dicey.

We saw the 9.30pm screening of Winchester there.

The walk through the carpark afterwards was scarier than the movie.

I always check in on Facebook if I have to go there, that way the police know where to begin the search.

It wasn’t the movie though, it was sawn off shot guns out of car windows.

If I get on the piss and have a late night I still get up early and get through the day no worries.

When I do the right thing, take it easy and go to bed at a decent time I feel as flat as a pancake.

Where's the justice????

Took the kids to a Playground at Alberton yesterday. At some stage some chick came in with a little girl maybe 18-24 months old.

Chick/guardian sat in the corner on her phone while the girl was playing, on the highest apparatus and standing right on the ledge, millimeters from a 6 foot drop. I looked at the chick, then the girl then the chick again who gave zero impression she was going to intervene.

In this day and age it’s hard to know what you can and can’t do around other people’s children but I thought “F*** it” and started heading toward the little girl who was either scared or confused and clearly in need of help. As I got closer I looked again at her guardian who finally looked up, waved at me to move away and gave me a filthy look.

Thankfully she bolted in time to stop the girl from falling as I’m certain she would have. Not sure how people can pay such little attention especially to someone so young. :evil:

Working in the space of providing playground for early learning it's swinging back to risk/reward play.....but the adults still need to pay attention for this type of situations!

And I respect that approach, and the fact the somewhat padded surface helps a bit, but this little tot was tiny and could have seriously hurt herself

You did the right thing, had she fallen and done nothing you would have regretted it and felt far worse

Its really surprising how many parents take their kids to the playground and sit there on their phones.

I regularly take HH3 Jnr to Point Malcolm Reserve, and its amazing how many little kids I've had to help down from somewhere. The same thing happened a lot down at the wooden playground at Pt Noarlunga when I used to take him there. Basically just let their kids climb up 6-10ft structures with no supervision. And a lot of the time, if the kid gets hurt, the parents tee off on the kid, or kids playing with them.

Most of the parents just hang out at the tables and zone out. Or socialise with each other rather than paying attention to their own kids safety.

If anyone fires up, I'm sure I could make them look like a piece of shit in front of everyone with a few words, so not too worried.
