Malcolm Turnbull's TV Set-Ups Are An Abomination

Yesterday was a wonderful day for Australia. First and most importantly, Australia voted resoundingly in favour of Same Sex Marriage. The plebiscite should never have happened to begin with, and there's damage to be repaired, but the outcome was a good one.

Then later that evening, the cherry on top. After a tough first half, Australia finally broke the deadlock, then steamrolled Honduras to secure a place in the World Cup finals.

For a day it really felt good to be Australian.

Malcolm Turnbull thought so too. Look at this shit.

Okay now what the fuck is this:

A TV, inside a cupboard. Centimetres from the ground.

I was almost willing to forgive that.

Then later, spotted. Malcolm Turnbull watching Australia make it to the finals. What a patriot! What a man of the people...

What the hell is this, a student share house from 2005? I pray for Turnbull's sake he was in a hotel for this one.

Suddenly the current state of the NBN is starting to make a whole lot more sense. A pattern is beginning to emerge.

But don't worry guys. Phil is coming to the rescue.

Godspeed Phil.



    Can we please have some kind of tag on these “Opinion” pieces. I don’t care about gay marriage and to us it as a segue into an article about TVs is just pathetic.

      Grow up!

      So why did you click on the article and then comment on it?

      Today I learned that if you get a result that is less than a credit (65) it is both resounding and overwhelming.

      Just imagine if it was a distinction result (75). It might be orgasmic or unanimous.

      High distinction (85) would have journalists clutching thesauruses passed out in the streets!

        Just remember, if yes\no votes corresponded as an election, there would be no 'No' senators and 11 'No' lower house members.

        As far as votes go, 60% of a population is huge.

      I don’t care about gay marriage and to us it as a segue into an article about TVs is just pathetic.
      It’s a good thing no one cares about your opinions then.

    Nobody cares that you don't care about SSM. It is CLEARLY an opinion piece. The title is obviously making fun of our PM's trashy TV set up. What could that possibly be other than opinion?

    The guy is on $200k per year, why the hell is he watching his country's WCQ playoff on that tiny TV? Is it a tech article? No. Obviously it's an opinion piece.

      I think you might be a few $k off.

      On 1 July 2017, the Australian Government's Remuneration Tribunal adjusted the Prime Ministerial salary, raising it to its current amount of $527,852.

        The guy's worth like 200 mil, not like he needs it.

    What is he? 18? Wow...

      Perhaps he doesn't watch a lot of TV and prefers to read, go outside, work etc...Or perhaps he prefers to spend his hard earned money on other things.

        It doesn't look like it. His TV setup looks like that of an 18 year old addicted to using the TV for gaming. sports etc so that he never set it up properly, usually because they're in short tem rented accommodation.

        Most intelligent adults who buy things with their hard earned money tend to make their things look a bit nicer and neater, especially if they have better things to do than watch their TV.

    plebiscite Survey.

    And yeah, those setups are truly bizarre.

    You might find on the 1st one that its restricted due to heritage concerns.

    Not sure on the 2nd one, but it looks suspiciously like the lodge.

    Wow you guys are all useless. My uncle's TV is like this because it is set up for CCTV..not usually for actual tv.
    Do you not notice all the camera leads and the CCTV Recorder under the unit on the mantle.
    The first tv is a flashback to how things use to be and it goes with the decor of the room .

      it's not okay for a CCTV set up either, your uncle needs help.

    Yes it's an opinion piece, which is decently funny. Not the best written, but this:

    For a day it really felt good to be Australian.

    This is a problem.
    I'm always proud to be Australian. Not for a day, just when the political climate matches my opinions, or our sports teams succeed. Its extra special when we do great things, but our baseline, Australias baseline, is the best in the world. If it doesn't feel good to be an Australian, you should look into why that is. Yes we have our dark moments, as does every nation, but we hold our heads high, and always look forward.

    The TV stuff was funny though. Ergonomics much...

      our baseline, Australias baseline, is the best in the world.
      It really isn't...
