It’s probably been done before, but I’m sure one could do an amusing chart matching political beliefs to sexual proclivities.

I knew an anarchist once. Completely dud root.

Remember, kids, just because it’s on television doesn’t mean it’s important. Or true. Or sexually pleasurable.

RT @sylmobile: The optometrist thought the silver frames suited me. [Because they get a bigger commission on that brand.]

via TweetDeck

I spy with my little eye another herd of issuing self-congratulatory tweets ‘cos someone mentioned a product they think is cool.

via TweetDeck

Whoever invented that internet thing really didn’t think through the implications, did they? They must’ve been so stupid!

@BernardKeane ‘Scuse me, Sir, but what is the source for those comments from the ASIO DG? I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

via TweetDeck

@adamnelson I’ve seen @2011Census reply to tweets. That said, it’ll be interesting to see how they respond next week.

News Ltd logic: Royal Institution’s Christmas Lectures held “every year” since 1825, except when they weren’t. http://arseh.at/9jz

@BernardKeane How dare those ideas not have fetters! I’m glad we have ASIO to point out the errors of our modern ways. Ankle shackles FTW!

Mind you, the story I just linked to makes a “most people” assertion without any evidence whatsoever. Still, let’s just make shit up, right?

via TweetDeck

It’s true. @2011Census shows how a government Twitter presence can be done with wit and style. http://arseh.at/9jx

Cherries can be so complicated. http://arseh.at/9jv

Me at CSO: “High-profile hacks distract attention from serious threats: Sophos” http://arseh.at/9js

@lukehopewell Drugs only once a week? How does that work? /cc @engochick

via TweetDeck in reply to lukehopewell

RT @engochick: Luke’s having a Microsoft “to the cloud” moment, without the weird music and without Microsoft. [Luke needs better drugs.]

via TweetDeck

RT @R_Chirgwin: [Scenario redacted] Upside: entertainment. Downside: sore bum. [That applies to so much of life, really.]

via TweetDeck

RT @Pollytics: Sorry - can’t participate. Still recovering from the visions of Angry Anderson and the Veronicas. [So am I, Possum. So am I.]

via TweetDeck

@jeamland I was accused of showing my age through my cultural references last night. And now so are you. /cc @Pollytics

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

@jeamland @Pollytics No, not Angry Anderson. Last year I saw him on stage en frottage with The Veronicas. It was a bit wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

@jeamland @Pollytics Sack Peter Garrett? Who would replace him? I suggest either Julian Hamilton from The Presets, or Wolfmother as a group.

The Sydney Morning Herald explains how journalism is done, part 830. http://arseh.at/9jm

The podcast recording went just fine from my end. But then it’s not raining today, so the data link worked.

via TweetDeck

Oh hang on. This is for @phildobbie’s “BTalk” podcast. I am so confused. And old. Old and confused. Also, confused.

via TweetDeck

About to record a think for @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast with @paulwallbank. Skype over NextG. Will my bandwidth behave?

via TweetDeck

@peterjblack Apparently “administrivia” was coined some decades ago. I’ve found it to be a most serviceable word.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

Tue plan revised: The “write something” for this morning has now been replaced by “deal with rather a lot of administrivia”.

via TweetDeck

@jackienopants Oh I don’t really care either. Except that it’s interesting to see what people find unusual about different places.

via TweetDeck in reply to jackienopants

@jackienopants Well, let’s toss in privacy. To deliver the service (the road) they don’t need to know who I am. [shrugs]

via TweetDeck in reply to jackienopants

@jackienopants Anyone should be able to pay for a public service like a road by cash and without having to pre-plan, IMO.

via TweetDeck in reply to jackienopants

RT @rycrozier: It has ‘subhead’ written all over it. [It does. But most of my editors go all weak-kneed about that c-word thing. Wimps.]

via TweetDeck

And thus it turns 9.30am on a sunny Tuesday morning.

via TweetDeck

Lest I be accused of partisanship, do compare that with “But he’s too much of a cunt even for the NSW Labor Right”. See what I mean?

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: Write something; 1130 recording for @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast; lunch; write something else; relaxed evening.

via TweetDeck

@thespurofthings Thanks. But Australian naming laws are pretty relaxed. Can’t be “obscene” or “frivolous”, says SA law, anything else is OK.

@thespurofthings One-name passport, you say? Sure, I have me one of them. But I’m not about to post pictures of it anywhere, sorry.

via TweetDeck in reply to thespurofthings

@perezkelly I hadn’t seen that, ta. Sophie Mirabella shows how fundamental techniques of propaganda will always win over facts and analysis.

Hello, Tuesday, you sexy little thing, you.
