@ibbers Making an issue of your own personal beliefs at someone else’s time of intense emotion seems… selfish. [shrugs]

via TweetDeck in reply to Prohairetic

@ibbers Actually, if it’s a relatives’ wake, courtesy means talking part in their rituals, yes. Or don’t go. Or silently bow your head.

via TweetDeck

I know who you mean, @izevaka, folks into recreational outrage so they can feel “connected” and “superior” about the cause du jour.

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. I have pressed buttons, it seems…

via TweetDeck

@CPKHarris It’d be 21-gun saute for a head of state. Parliament (dissolution of) “only” gets a 19-gun under established protocol.

via TweetDeck in reply to CPKHarris

Oh I’ve certainly seen the “religion is the root of all evil” rhetoric, @izevaka, and it disgusts me.

via TweetDeck

Since when did “atheist” become synonymous with “intolerant cunt”? I missed that memo.

via TweetDeck

RT @Venisejb: Religion and ethics do not co-exist. [Sorry, that’s the biggest load of intolerant anti-theist bullshit I’ve seen all day.]

via TweetDeck

Oh I’d missed that the ABC had launched a Religion & Ethics portal. Bravo. http://bit.ly/doOO3e

Laughing at arsehats.

@andrewdotnich As soon as I’ve sorted out the music licensing issues, the Edict will include more musical snippets.

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

Reference for previous tweet’s disturbing visual imagery is @BernardKeane’s article http://bit.ly/bgUK6R

via TweetDeck

Oi @BerrnardKeane! “In 25 years’ time, we could be watching TV dramas featuring bedroom scenes between Julia Gillard and Craig Emerson.”

via TweetDeck

Is “barramundi” the Latin for “everyone in the world is named Barry”?

via TweetDeck

Hah! Cut off for the 1730 news! Somebody wasn’t watching the clock…

via TweetDeck

@andrewdotnich You say that as if there’s something wrong with S Club 7…

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

I have a table and chair. I have wine. I have internets. I have things to read. I have 3G reception. Alles ist in Ordnung.

via TweetDeck

Moving forward: Enmore Rd; probably to King St; find a quiet reading spot; 1720 ABC Radio Statewide NSW interview; food etc.

via TweetDeck

I should’ve put money on the possibility of someone linking election and email and erection. You people disgust me.

via TweetDeck

Why are all these people emailing me about some “election”?

via TweetDeck

Department of Defence media release re today’s 19-gun salute in Canberra: “Loud noises will be heard during the firing.” Goodness!

via TweetDeck

@Vuki If you’re referrring to the old itinerant guy I think you are, I have some of his story http://bit.ly/aLNMZa

via TweetDeck in reply to Vuki

@Vuki It’s my patch. I think I can cope with the local beggers. I see them every day.

via TweetDeck in reply to Vuki

Mon plan (additional): Cup of tea; catch up on today’s political readings; a walk thru Newtown and then…? Tempt me!

via TweetDeck

@jeamland Indeed, my Schwab rebuttal must still be sitting in a pile of copy somewhere. I shall make enquiries this afternoon.

Patch Monday podcast at @zdnetaustralia: “Software patent controversy explained” by @kim_weatherall http://bit.ly/bQLTE9

via TweetDeck

Some people just don’t take their spiritual development sufficiently seriously. They are filled with Sin.

via TweetDeck

Ah OK @jason_a_w this is Townsville ‘cos she has the candidate for Herbert standing nearby.

via TweetDeck

Oh is it Brisbane, @jason_a_w? I’m watching ABC. Someone mentioned Townsville this morning. I rely on the media for Truth.

via TweetDeck

I see that @JuliaGillard has chosen the most scenic location in all of Townsville for her media conference. Is that a public toilet?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus One’s spiritual development should never be neglected.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@izevaka Au contraire, that is THE BEST PINATA IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE! http://bit.ly/a9vuKk

via TweetDeck in reply to izevaka

“One piñata two piñata three piñata four… Five piñata six piñata sangria for all!”

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… Seeing the word “piñata” reminds me of “sangria”…

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed! Ping @engochick and break out the piñata, blindfolds and sticks!

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il est le lundi, et ma tête est pleine de bruits étranges et plusieurs voix différentes. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Crikey story filed!

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, les chats sont endormis, recroquevillé ensemble.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Tue plan: Crikeywriting; 0845 record for A Series of Tubes; 1030 interview; 1200 lunch Cockle Bay Wharf; remainder TBA, perhaps an Edict.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis remarquablement bien, compte tenu de tous les faits disponibles. En outre, entouré de chats. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Writing. But still laughing.

via TweetDeck

Laughing. Not out loud, just quietly, in the inside.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark Before the internet, was there EVER the sentence “Your narwhal is fuzzy”?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark My rebuttal of Adam Schwab is still in the queue at Crikey, bumped back by election news. I’m assured it will run. One day.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Sorry, I’m referring to this ABC Unleashed piece “The ethics of journalism” that’s ipissing me off immensely http://bit.ly/cdYZzL

via TweetDeck

The phrase “patronising cunt” comes to mind, too.

via TweetDeck

Irritated with an “ethicist” who seems to support goverment minsters lying about their beliefs. Maybe this will be an essay on Wedneday.

via TweetDeck

Dear God, I have just seen my supposed schedule for tomorrow morning. Looks hectic. Then lunch and a free afternoon. Liver ahoy!

via TweetDeck

Home, apparently.

via TweetDeck

Damn damn damn! She’s not a citizem and her opinion does not matter!

via TweetDeck

RT @GreenJ RT @RAFDuxford1940: Squadron practised pairs line astern formation http://ow.ly/2dgfV [Is that a euphemism?]

“Mystery Investor Buys Every Cocoa Bean in Europe: Who’s hoarding all that cocoa, and why?” http://bit.ly/9ffJ5j HT @GreenJ

@anthonybaxter You are finally starting to understand where I come from.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonybaxter

I am SO going to get this woman as a regular on the Edict!

via TweetDeck

OH: “Alvin’s gone? Oh no no no no no no! That’s a shame, Mary! Shit! Shit! Shit! He made the best one! I’m not going to watch it any more.”

via TweetDeck

RT @penbo: Alvin - a nation mourns.

via TweetDeck

The overheard women thinks Callum is “gorgeous”. I seriously have to interview her.

via TweetDeck

RT @deconstructo: I am going to try and not say a negative thing about Australia for a week. ;) [Good luck!]

via TweetDeck

I’ll be OK @mrsnickhodge back in the, erm, ’80s I did a vox pop EVERY DAY. It helps focus you on the reality of real people in reality.

via TweetDeck

I seriously should keep a stack of blank talent release forms with me.

via TweetDeck

RT @jasonlangenauer: Facts are a communist plot. [Agreed.]

via TweetDeck

The thing is @deconstructo facts have no relevance to this.

via TweetDeck

RT @deconstructo: They forget that interest rates were very high under Howard as treasurer as well. 21% cash rate if memory serves.

via TweetDeck

OH: “The only thing I have against a Labor government is when I went to buy a home the interest rates were 17%.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “She just kept saying ‘moving forward’, ‘moving forward’. Yeah, one step forward, two steps back, that’s what I say.”

via TweetDeck

Oh I don’t know who they are @SnarkyPlatypus @drueyjay @jonoabroad there’s no audio.

via TweetDeck

Oh God! They’re playing “Love will tear us apart”, which is clearly a signal to go home.

via TweetDeck

Are you allowed to call someone on television “an annoyingly prissy clichéd little faggot”? I’d just like to check first.

via TweetDeck

I just realised I could have watched through the streamy internet thing. Oh well. I can watch it later. Or not.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… The pu… um, the LIBRARY where I’m at is showing not so I have no idea what’s going on.

via TweetDeck

RT @aussexparty: We like it best when all 3 topics [politics, religion, sex] are combined… [Oh dear. Nicely played.]

via TweetDeck

@zerogeewhiz iPhone 4 and sex are more or less the same thing, aren’t they?

via TweetDeck in reply to zerogeewhiz

OK, I’ve offended people with talk of religion and politics so far tonight. Sex is next. [readjusts fly]

via TweetDeck

I see Channel Nine has a wonderfully innovative idea: a TV property program hosted by Michael Caton. That’s never been done before.

via TweetDeck

Yes @SnarkyPlatypus Seven showed a clip from “Hawke”, with a topless Hawke and Blanche pouncing upon him. Monday ratings win.

via TweetDeck

I think I’ve just come up with the perfect answer to most everyday irritations. [nods] Two words, easy solution.

via TweetDeck

OH: “David’s just not coming up with the goods… The last thing I’d do if a relationship was falling apart is take out another mortgage.”

via TweetDeck

Should anyone care, “A Current Affair” seems to be going with a “Hazel Hawke, wife spurned” story. Most vision sourced from the ABC.

via TweetDeck

@ibbers I suspect we’re more on the same page than not, but the medium isn’t doing us any favours.

via TweetDeck in reply to Prohairetic

@wolfcat Why should any Seven TV news stories be about ? Nothing really new happened today! They made a good call.

via TweetDeck in reply to wolfcat

Kinda @tardis_42, I’d say ethics, “a system of moral principles”, is a separate issue from religion. Twitter is not best for this tho.

via TweetDeck

Alas @R_Chirgwin while Google currently says I’m hit #1 for “recreational outrage”, I didn’t coin the term.

via TweetDeck

“A Series of Tubes” conversation recorded! Gosh, I am truly surging through today’s to-do list!

via TweetDeck

@phildobbie The world is a dangerous place. You should take more care. I wouldn’t want yopu to have an accident…

via TweetDeck in reply to phildobbie

@phildobbie Oh agreed, Reginald Farquar Prendagharst is an appalling fellow, especialy given that SkypeIn has caller ID. ;)
