@firstdogonmoon @benbirchall What’s tyhis about Chippendale’s lesbian robots?

@jasonlangenauer Qantas shares only dropped to where they were yesterday. Day traders are arsehats. http://arseh.at/1gz

Well today proves it. We have Twitter. We can dismantle that insanely expensive Defence Support Program. http://arseh.at/1gy

@gregwaldron The aircraft in question has already returned to Singapore on the remaining 3 engines and landed safely. Panic not.

via TweetDeck

It’s all OK, folks. The trending topics are still “Law & Order” and “Vin Diesel”. Nothing to see here.

via TweetDeck

Actually this is kinda fun, watching all the instant aviation experts roll out their theories.

via TweetDeck

@deptofinternets I’ve already written my “citizen journalism is dead” headline today. I guess I’ll have to dance on its grave now.

via TweetDeck

@duncanriley Well I’d call these Indonesian news reports “misinformation” since they appear to be, you know, wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to duncanriley

Ah well, either way, that’s people’s supply of recreational disaster-watching sorted out for this evening. Happy viewing, folks.

via TweetDeck

@natecochrane Not even confirmation ANY aircraft crashed. Explosion heard. Debris found. Aircraft emergency landing. How many incidents?

via TweetDeck in reply to natecochrane

I have fired up Twitterfall to watch the misinformation spread. And by God does it spread fast!

via TweetDeck

Statements like “fears it may have been Qantas jet” are being sourced to what, exactly? Aside from sheer speculation? WHOSE fears?

via TweetDeck

My bullshit detectors have just gone off big time.

via TweetDeck

Worse than that, @jim_croft. It’s LESS than 150 years since slave ships. But that’s OK, we’re advanced now. We have “Bondi Vet”.

True @ZebraBites students have bitched about their teachers since the beginning of time. And as 2pm approaches they head back to class.

via TweetDeck

Nearby, a group of students from Enmore TAFE are loudly complaining about the quality of their teachers.

via TweetDeck

@DavidFeng Maybe is it a grass mud slug. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidFeng

@DavidFeng I am fairly sure it is meant to be a slug. A knitted slug. A yellow knitted slug. Which is of course entirely sensible.

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidFeng

Altogether too much detail about the “10” on the door of 10 Downing St. Typonerds only. http://arseh.at/1gw

@ojkelly Thanks. I’ll watch the podcast when I’m back home with more and cheaper non-mobile bandwidth.

via TweetDeck in reply to ojkelly

Episode 1 of @ojkelly’s podcast “Parity Bit”, ‘pon which I was a guest, is now online. http://arseh.at/1gu

Do you know what I’m going to do now? I’ll tell you what I’m going to do now. I’m going to head up the street for some noodles.

via TweetDeck

@natecochrane Well there you go. As it happens, I think my best writing is my more reflective stuff. I haven’t been doing so much lately.

via TweetDeck in reply to natecochrane

Prepositions are such tricky buggers.

RT @abcnews: From the photo desk: Mount Merapi erupts again http://bit.ly/aN0Xv1 [Maybe time to move the photo desk?]

via TweetDeck

@natecochrane @Vuki Thank you, gentlemen. I filed one thing for Crikey just now. I’m still pitching a more reflective op-ed to editors.

via TweetDeck

@natecochrane No problems, Nate, I think you’ve done a great summary of yesterday’s event. My own stuff is still to emerge.

Cooks Source magazine editor plagiarises from web, reckons it’s just fine. http://arseh.at/1hr

via TweetDeck

I love websites that say you’re already logged in, but then when you click “continue” they ask you to log in. I think they’re clever.

via TweetDeck

Well well well.

RT @lyrianfleming This is handy - top 7 animated talks to help you change the world - http://bit.ly/al1868 [Yes. Animated talks solve all.]

via TweetDeck

@StephenFenech A good strategy now? Talk to a real scientist, preferably a physicist, about what “science” means then apologise to everyone.

via TweetDeck

No. Look. God. Um… Hey I love you all, obviously. But you can stop sending me links now. No, you can stop. Please.

via TweetDeck

If anyone else is in the same boat, just look for the helpful links people have sent me. “Search: The internet’s killer app!” Dog optional.

via TweetDeck

Right. So apparently I’m about the only person left in the entire universe who has not seen the not-so-alleged picture.

via TweetDeck

So has anyone actually seen this alleged photo of the alleged rugby player in the alleged “sexual activity” with the alleged dog?

@DavidFeng The only trip on my schedule is SFO in early December. I have yet to hit China, so if I can find a suitable patron…

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidFeng

@simonstanton I figure the odds of me being involved in an air crash are pretty much the same, whether or not something happened today.

via TweetDeck

@anthonycole I haven’t been given my flight details yet, so I’ve no idea if I transit LAX or go direct to SFO. Or even who I fly with.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonycole

@simonstanton Oh gawd what a drama queen! Engine problem, gets shut down, return to airport. The procedures work. No-one hurt.

via TweetDeck

@DavidFeng Well that’s a worthy challenge. Free tea at Beijing Starbucks is not the world’s biggest prize pool, but suitably symbolic.

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidFeng

I will say that if this A380 grounding affects my SFO trip I will get quite stabby.

via TweetDeck

@grum Keep that hair brush above your waist, young man!

RT @Bruff: Blue Cheese bath? [OK, that’s combining some wonderful images in a most inappropriate way. Or maybe it’s just me.]

via TweetDeck

@DavidFeng “Charles-de-Gaulle Aerogare Terminal 1 is shittiest terminal building in ze hole worlde…”? Yeah? Been to Nairobi?

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidFeng

@DavidFeng Oh I play with avatars every few days. It’s usually quite spontaneous and often private jokes.

via TweetDeck in reply to DavidFeng

I need an improved plan for this evening, and it had better involve cheese.

Ben Sandilands: “Qantas suspends A380 flights”, with full text of statement. http://arseh.at/1hf

via TweetDeck

@natecochrane Hah! Thank you. But yes Crikey still has the lunchtime email as core revenue. I’ve no idea of the balance though.

via TweetDeck in reply to natecochrane

Pure Poison has picked up the Qlink arsehattery. I’ve no problem calling the “Sympathetic Resonance Technology” a scam. http://arseh.at/1he

via TweetDeck

@natecochrane Crikey stories do emerge from the paywall after two weeks, which is a consolation.

@Nickhodge @nigelwadsworth Six Rolls-Royce Merlin engines would NOT be a “sweet” sound. It’d be like a senile badger gargling broken glass.

via TweetDeck in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Far, far worse than J-pop, @rycrozier. It’s the song Delta Goodram did at the Commonwealth Games. http://youtu.be/XNsrzw8T… Don’t ask.

via TweetDeck

God this song is shit.

via TweetDeck

No matter what / We will play our part / And now we’ve come so far / One chance to touch a star / Go higher and higher.

via TweetDeck

Here we are / Sharing our lives / We made it through / The good and bad times / And still we stand / With hope in our hearts.

via TweetDeck

So sick of politicians’ media releases waffling, “We are committed…”. Just bloody say, specifically, what tangible results were achieved.

Actually @sealfur “Dealing with Arsehats” would indeed be a wonderful self-help book title. And that’s given me an idea…

Dealing with arsehats.

@stronglatte I don’t know which instance of photo re-use you’re referring to, but I agree that frequently the credit is far from adequate.

via TweetDeck in reply to stronglatte

Try s42 of the Act @jasonlangenauer, “Fair dealing for purpose of reporting news”. A photo is an “artistic work” here. http://arseh.at/1h0

RT @jasonlangenauer: So it’s OK for news organisations to use copyrighted yfrog images is it? [Yes, actually. Copyright Act excemption.]
