[US] Supreme Court rules against TV swearing. http://tr.im/jXh1 [Yes, let’s further divorce TV from The Real World. P.S. Killing still OK.]

@WoollyMittens Exactly. Accidental typos are OK. Continual carelessness with language, the Tool of Thought, is shoddy workmanship.

Police in Denmark hug bicyclists without helmets, then give them helmets. http://tr.im/jXcX (@BoingBoing, via @ecoknowgrapher.)

@WoollyMittens Heh! Well, I can think of worse people I’d want to have living in Australia. And I can list a few I’d like to deport.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WoollyMittens

I simply can’t take anyone seriously if they spell the verb “to lose” as “loose”. For me, it just shrieks “illiterate moron”.

Australia ranks #26 o world IT IQ scale, which Perceptric just made up. http://tr.im/jX6X

O’Reilly’s “The Twitter Book”: A Sneak Preview. http://tr.im/jX5x Table of contents plus chapter 3 “Hold Great Conversations”.

@nwjerseyliz Indeed, having to put down someone else’s behaviour is a symptom of one’s own insecurities about status.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@nwjerseyliz “Other”. “Oversharing”: a word to put down someone else’s behaviour. You don’t HAVE to follow if you’re not interested.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

RT @nwjerseyliz: Twitter has been called part of a new “culture of oversharing.” What’s your opinion? http://twtpoll.com/1hwhvx

Emerges. Yes, I remember this time of day. This is when they demand to be fed, and I must feed them.

Despite earlier imagery of chocolate ovaries, the presence of two sleeping cats and no energy inspires me to pretend to sleep. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders See, it’s NOT just me! The whole world is like that!

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Jen_Bennett: OMFG Chocolate ovaries would be awesome!

via Twitter Web Client

@johnhalton If you’re channelling Senator Conroy, real or fake, then you’re a braver man than me!

Mark Twain (maybe): “Censorship is telling a man he can’t have a steak just because a baby can’t chew it.”

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH At this stage, yes, there should be a “Stilgherrian Live” on Thursday night. Things are intense this week, though, so we’ll see.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@Jen_Bennett I find the thought that you have been eating your OWN eggs to be rather… disturbing. Sort of a reverse-IVF?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Jen_Bennett

@viveka Yes, where have you been, young man?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to viveka

RT @BernardKeane: WTF is “probable” swine flu death http://bit.ly/qdYwv Can’t they tell if they’re dead or not?

via Twitter Web Client

@BreakfastNews @retrogrrl Exactly! “Barack Obama: first rootable President since Jack Kennedy.” Discuss THAT, Trioli! (Joe can join in too.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

@CassieST Oh now I’ve got a craving for cheese, and I blame YOU.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CassieST

Did everyone catch the new ACMA report on the state of Internet filtering and other “cyber-safety” (ugh!) measures? http://tr.im/jTMb

via Twitter Web Client

@BreakfastNews We need to see more of Obama shirtless. What we’ve seen so far was just teasing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BreakfastNews

@nicster Oh stop your fucking whinging and GET A GUN! Sheesh! IT CAN ALL BE SOLVED IN MINUTES!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nicster

@julie_posetti You’re right, adding Swine Flu to the mix is good. Keep ‘em confused!

@SilkCharm I can say that it’s international and… well… isn’t that enough?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@SilkCharm I’m not sure what I can say about yet, I must be guided by @FiBendall. Maybe more will emerge later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@mistressmia Oh the whole concept of “debating” what something is “for” is bullshit, yes. It’s people wanting to look clever. Ho hum.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mistressmia

RT @lyndons: So far, yr involves gin, tequila, the tango & lambada, Saudi princesses & ambassadorship 2 Mexico. Sounds OK.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Hmmm… I’ll have to think of a different ‘cos is too long. I’ll decide before Friday.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@alanjlee Actually, isn’t in Sydney. Or even in this continent. And (checks map) not even in this hemisphere.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alanjlee

@trib @mpesce Why does Twitter have to be just ONE thing? Can’t it be notetaking AND dialtone AND broadcast AND a cheese grater?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@barrysaunders I think your understanding of is somewhat a’kilter.

via Twitter Web Client

I suppose I should re-read the Proposal and just remind myself what I’m in for.

via Twitter Web Client

Thanks for all the messages of “congrats” coming in, especially those who have NO idea what is. Hmmm… What can I say…?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @FiBendall:@stilgherrian is now to be officially undertaken … Go Go Go! [And my head just assploded! Yay!]

via Twitter Web Client

Continuing to plough through “paperwork”, which is less interesting than you are, but not by much. Especially when “need” is considered.

via Twitter Web Client

Tue plan (belated): Continue the never-ending stream of “paperwork” until the entire thing pops out the other end.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @ThePlasticAge: If anyone wants to RT this link to my store, I would appreciate it: http://tr.im/jS9I Yep, they’s some nice skateboards.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @kcarruthers: Had weird dream with @stilgherrian in it wearing pink washing up gloves & khakis. [I’ll ask for explanations later.]

via Twitter Web Client

@willhughes That means, however, that it’s IMPOSSIBLE to do “Stilgherrian Live” mobile with anyone except Telstra Next G.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

RT @willhughes: That’s actually not too bad a speed, considering everyone (except T) runs 3Mbit… shared per cell.

via Twitter Web Client

@ccoaster2002 Oh. They’re mostly sales and account management. I shouldn’t have RTd. I feel dirty now.

@EmperorNorton Well, the more extreme fundamentalists have (slightly?) less of a profile here in Australia. So far.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to EmperorNorton

@nwjerseyliz Yeah I’ve head “oversharing” used too. Still, it’s making a judgement, “over”, instead of an observation, “more”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

@TimNoonan I open nominations for “Cnut of the Week” at my website on Thursday mornings. If there’s a program tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TimNoonan

Virgin Mobile via my Nokia N96 in Enmore just now. 870kb/s down, 30kb/s up. For HSDPA, that’s shoddy.

via Twitter Web Client

@EmperorNorton I hear you, but as fundamentalists go, Pastor Danny Nalliah is at the weird-arse end of the spectrum. http://tr.im/jXZL

via Twitter Web Client in reply to EmperorNorton

RT @thornley: US teens watch TV 60% less than their parents and spend 600% more time online than their parents. @pgillin

via Twitter Web Client

RT @thornley: US Magazine newsstand sales fallen 22% this year. The age of the average network evening news viewer: 63! @pgillin

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Oh I’m sure Peter Costello must’ve done SOMETHING useful during his adult life? Apart from support that strange fundamentalist.

Fairfax: “How Fail Whale became a hit”, interview with @YiyingLu. http://tr.im/jXVA [Yeah, yesterday. That’s the priority I give Fairfax.]

@thetowncrier “The Australian” is sort of like a politicians’ old-folks home where they can all whinge about how the young’uns are so bad.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thetowncrier

Wed plan: Breakfast on Enmore Rd before a long, long and stressful day preparing documentation for the Tax Office. Yes, there are problems.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh non! Cela ne ressemble pas à faire appel à tous! Que faire?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Mon cerveau est comme une grande laitue, avec moins de secret escargots. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@monkeytypist OK, if you don’t like language as Tool of Thought, how about “Tool for Communicating Thought”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monkeytypist

@trib I think the Twitter book would be handy. We do now tend to criticise new folk rather sharply. Also, shows possibilities.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Previous tweet hat-tip to @eloisamiller. I didn’t have room for both a credit and my own snark. Guess which won.
