@warringa Does one really need a WHOLE console of buttons to launch fuckwittedness bait? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to warringa

Hilarious watching everyone equate anti-Sea Shepherd with pro-whaling. So funny.

@TunaCrust I think I’ve explained by views at length in that post and comments so I won’t repeat them all here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TunaCrust

I can see by by all the “but they’re saving lives” responses that so many have been sucked into “ends justify means” faux-logic.

via Twitter Web Client

Exactly @bastardsheep, I’m no fan of whaling. Far from it. But I have NO tolerance for vigilante adrenalin-junkies.

via Twitter Web Client

There. I’ve said it. But anyone who deliberately endangers lives at sea, in the deep Antarctic no less, should be jailed.

via Twitter Web Client

Sorry, Sea Shepherd are not heroes, they’re pirates. A danger to ships at sea. Yes, if in distress, they should be rescued too. But pirates.

via Twitter Web Client

I wrote up my opinion of that bunch of self-appointed vigilante pirates, Sea Shepherd, 2 years ago. http://bit.ly/8msEJ0

@fleurbrown Your comment pre-supposes there’s NOT “features” aplenty already. Usually I can find LOTS of background and analysis online.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fleurbrown

@fleurbrown I think “print pubs try to have point of difference by going deeper” is a quaint old myth no longer supported by evidence.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fleurbrown

RT @babycakesjase: I think we’re mixing math and art in new, and possibly useless, ways. [This is a GOOD thing, I think.]

“Cut This Story!” EVERY journalist and sub-editor needs to read and comprehend this, I reckon. http://bit.ly/6FhXJD

The thing about automated Internet routing is that what worked for someone but not you 80 seconds ago might be the other way around now.

@rosieryan May I recommend “Down For Everyone Or Just Me?” http://bit.ly/gWxUD as a wond’drous tool for your situation?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rosieryan

@babycakesjase I think Will Cole’s concrete TVs have been done to death now, so that devalues the equation. Some sort of RMS calculation?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to babycakesjase

Hah! In Newtown Square someone’s swiped a Will Cole concrete TV sculpture and replaced it with an actual 15” monitor.

OH: “i’m sorry about that psychic investigator, that was completely my fault.”

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; lunch (late, I know); find a quiet reading & writing spot.

You know @mab397 if I said I’d NOT been reading “Clients from Hell” for the last hour, it’d be a lie. http://bit.ly/2lMzL5

via Twitter Web Client

Oh THANK you to whoever just pointed me to “Clients from Hell” on Tumblr! http://bit.ly/2lMzL5

via Twitter Web Client

@kofeyh You are correct. We are caving in to tiny threats. But there are people who benefit from keeping everyone fearful.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kofeyh

@thisisbrad See, it’s this “supposedly” about scanners that worries me. And worries Ben Sandilands. http://bit.ly/874bAN

RT @kerryank: If some people I know had a sphincterotomy there’d be nothing left of them. [Oh never a truer word was said!]

via Twitter Web Client

Consider: X-ray everyone at airports: more deaths from cancer in frequent flyers than lives saved from extremely rare terrorism.

via Twitter Web Client

@jplonie [nods] I agree that a key to understanding security is the risk analysis…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jplonie

Graph title: “Effect of chili consumption and placebo on anal burning in the first 7 days after sphincterotomy”. http://bit.ly/74CLuW

via Twitter Web Client

@j_watt That’s classic, yes. How do you PROVE that the ID is wrong on their systems when you have no ID to match? Good luck!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to j_watt

@jplonie But, even giving you the point, ANYONE can phone Telstra with my DOB and rearrange services costing thousands. Piss-poor security.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jplonie

@jplonie I disagree. Value of transaction is not relevant. Date of birth is simply not secret knowledge known only to holder.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jplonie

@gabewong Whereas Taxis Combined’s asks clear, closed questions and can pick answers from a pre-defined list. Works well.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gabewong

@gabewong Apart from accents, the problem with Telstra’s voice system is that it’s free-form. Open-ended answers are FAR harder to parse.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gabewong

Hmmm… I think the time really has come to start mocking ANY organisation that thinks “date of birth” is any sort of authentication.

via Twitter Web Client

@Telstra Thank you, no, all’s cool. I needed to tell someone my SEKRIT birthday to rearrange some services. All done.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Telstra

@jeamland But listening to Gotye’s “Thanks For Your Time” would require listening to Gotye. Can’t I stick pins in my eyes instead?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

Elapsed time on phone to Telstra to change one redirection and cancel an unneeded landline: 14 minutes.

via Twitter Web Client

@renailemay Not only is that PR title too long, it has NO concrete words. What IS it plugging? Who can tell? http://bit.ly/4L5bQk

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

Agreed @SophieAG @Cacotopos the patience and “give it a go and “persist” aspects are important.

via Twitter Web Client

@deanlk Alas, “Twitter in Plain English” is purely personal benefit, no business or newn context. Still good tho. http://bit.ly/LcWis

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

@deanlk The “Twitter in Plain English” could work. Will have to see if i still holds up. http://bit.ly/LcWis

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deanlk

Thu plan: Work slowly through the clutter of emails and tasks that have accumulated, maybe at my desk, maybe at a SEKRIT eyrie later.

via Twitter Web Client

I agree @iDarryl you only “get” Twitter by using it, and I reckon only once the pool of your people reaches about 50. Has that been written?

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Twitterverse, if you were to show a small business owner ONE introductory piece about Twitter, which would it be?

via Twitter Web Client

Starting my morning routines about 3 hours late. This’ll improve my mood, I’m sure.

via Twitter Web Client

What I will say, though, is that I find zealots REALLY tedious to discuss things with. The Grand Mission always justifies EVERYTHING.

via Twitter Web Client

Since I’d already said ALL this about Sea Shepherd last night, and in a blog post 2 years ago, that’ll be all I say on Twitter today.

via Twitter Web Client

@NigelLeck And for a third party with no legal authority to decide to act on its own, violently, against another ship, IS piracy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NigelLeck

@NigelLeck And, Sir, if it’s “scientific research” it is legal. I’m not APPROVING of that label, just saying that the legal situation.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NigelLeck

Emerges. Kinda. In pain.

via Twitter Web Client

Since I’m having ABC iView upfuckage I think I’ll attempt sleep. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@FiveThumbsDown True, the world does indeed need to experience the Wunder Boner. http://bit.ly/HGjKF

via Twitter Web Client

Wow! This product is even moar betteror than the Snuggie! http://bit.ly/5VgiMj

via Twitter Web Client

@jason_a_w Yes, SS have been provoking incidents then doing the “they picked on us” routine. Not impressed. Anyway, enough about them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jason_a_w

@m1k3y If by “Whale Whores” you mean South Park S13E11, just calling it up now. ;) http://bit.ly/4zvaSE

Oh, and a song! “Sea Shepherd (a pirate fantasy shanty)” http://bit.ly/5N21yg My my, people just send me stuff!

Sea Shepherd founder Paul Watson’s story and beliefs are an interesting read. http://bit.ly/4UIBGu

via Twitter Web Client

@johncarneyau That’s not my iPhone. I have no iPhone. I prefer a phone that still works after 3pm.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to johncarneyau

@NigelLeck As for calling Sea Shepherd “pirates”, criminal damage to a ship on high seas is precisely piracy. They acknowledge sinkings.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NigelLeck

@NigelLeck Please read my post and comments. http://bit.ly/4nNBqd That the Japanese whaling is “illegal” is questionable.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NigelLeck

RT @qryss: Nice coincidental juxtaposition! :) http://yfrog.com/3g4f0yj [And so it is.]

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway Sea Shepherd boasts of ships they’ve sunk. http://bit.ly/4nNBqd Reap, sow, etc.

via Twitter Web Client

@sesh Do I believe that Sea Shepherd’s “cool” boat was sunk? Yes. Do I believe it was “deliberately rammed”? Dunno. Too early.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sesh

@Wolfie_Rankin I was under the impression that Greenpeace, the Australian govt and others were working against Japan’s whaling. Legally.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Wolfie_Rankin

Sea Shepherd founder advises make up facts and figures when needed, “truth is irrelevant”. http://bit.ly/88HPtd
