Weird shit

We've got some kind of weird mojo going on in Australia at the moment. Maybe it's a backlash to all those reality gameshows where we have to eliminate people and pick winners? Maybe we woke up and realised, like in primary school, everyone is a winner and everyone gets a prize?

Maybe we're just sick of picking. Maybe we're sick of picking between subpar choices?

Here's some examples:

Federal Election. Noone really won.

Aussie Hugos Novel category - tie with The City and the City and The Windup Girl. This one though was not about mediocre choices.

Aussie Rules Football Grand Final. A Tie. Third time in the 100+ history of the game. Subjecting the nation to another grand final this weekend. Yay I can shop without the hordes.

Australia's Next Top Model. Host mucks up the announcement so they both win? (The prize is only $25 000. I was quite shocked by how low that is).

I'm not sure now whether to bet on the Melbourne Cup or not.
