@einspruch I’m not sure that garter snakes would be appreciated as snail-killers in Australia. ;) http://adjix.com/yb6g

Sun plan: With @ApostrophePong to Sunday roast at Kelly’s; buy snail-killer and a bolt (apparently); writing (probably).

@greymatter78 Good morning. Stupidity is an excellent state of being. It saves a lot of bother.

@SnarkyPlatypus Actually, I would LIKE to see Julie Bishop deal with foreign affairs as she deals with the WA Liberal Party.

@SnarkyPlatypus Dès que le Sénateur Conroy a été mentionné, j’ai pensé à aller dans les trains aux tunnels. Aussi, http://tr.im/sZad

Nearly every website I’ve visited today has an advert for Microsoft Virtualisation. I think they’re trying to tell me something. Or sell.

@thewetmale Ackerman and Bolt not being “good explainers” was kinda my point. They’re wind-up combat bulls, nothing else.

@SnarkyPlatypus Mes rêves n’ont pas de licornes, ni anguilles. Ils ne contiennent des gares de chemin de fer et le Sénateur Conroy.

@jdub @Pollytics The politiscenti just use jargon to make themselves look clever, or to hide their ignorance, like a squid squirting ink.

via Twitter Web Client

@jdub @Pollytics No, I reckon ANY subject can be explained simply without dumbing-down, if someone’s good enough at explaining.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Même si j’ai très mal dormi, je suis venu avec beaucoup d’excellentes idées dans mes rêves. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Pollytics It is time, therefore, for anyone who really cares about politics to disengage from the circle-jerk and tackle actual issues.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Pollytics

@jdub Issues like Internet filtering are covered as analysis pollies’ “performance”, not the validity of their positions.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@jdub The media’s time of a few “influential commentators” is over. No-one can know everything about what politics touches.

Facebook cause “Free Peter Garrett from his alien abductors & reveal the true identity of his evil impersonator.” http://tr.im/sZ15

@jdub @Pollytics Why even bother with ? It’s a pointless ritual. The time could be better spent gaining understanding elsewhere?

@snrkl I don’t know that @SnarkyPlatypus and I have any intent or goal regarding the French. It just IS.

Mon plan: It looks like a desk-bound day, as there’s lost of administrivia, planning and communications to deal with.

@SnarkyPlatypus Si ce titre n’a pas été utilisé avant, je suis sûr que ce sera cette semaine.

@JeremyJacobs There are some questions best unasked, Sir, and that could well be one of them. Also, the other room.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Mon monde est plein de petits objets irritant. Et vous?

@Venisejb Twitter has “verified accounts” (very limited) http://tr.im/t1cK but in general there is no authentication of user IDs, no.

@SnarkyPlatypus Please do not be RTing my tweets with random tags, thank you. There is enough trouble in the world as it is.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce @nicster These two tweets reflect an inconsistent reality. http://tr.im/t0ls http://tr.im/t0lv Please explain.

@lewellyn Penguins could be mammals if they wanted to be, ‘cos penguins are totally awesome and you’re just limited in your thinking.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@lewellyn Maybe if the San Francisco Chronicle ran a story about each individual sex act by a mammal ever, that’d be The Future of News!

Tues night, anyone wanna see @ApostrophePong’s piece in the Dislocation 09 exhibition? http://tr.im/t074 He has class after, so… well…

@nazzer Did I mention that we’re at Kelly’s On King, opposite the Post Office?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nazzer

@nazzer And if you hide in a pub you can regress to the Newtown of the 70s-80s AND get drunk! Multitasking FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nazzer

@lewellyn It’s intriguing how stories can ripple around the newsverse and take weeks to emerge in new places.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@nazzer If the coffee is inadequate, you can usually substitute vodka. Just sayin’.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nazzer

@nazzer I’m the wrong person to ask about quality coffee. If it has alkaloids in it, it’ll do for me. FACE UP TO YOUR ADDICTION, PEOPLE!

Still wondering whether I should write about Apollo 11, given the small chance of saying anything new.

ABC News runs the gay penguin story http://tr.im/sZJF which was on The Colbert Report two weeks ago. Ahem.
