RT @dobes: Oh shit, Hockey’s about to explain the bond market. [EVERYONE GET YOUR PENCILS OUT AND STICK THEM IN YOUR EARS! ]

Pleased to see the return of Detective Inspector Ken the Hen, gender ambiguity chicken.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh now I’m starting to understand commercial television. “Reinventing” yourself means a new shirt and a haircut. [nods]

via Janetter for Mac

@paininthenet I just read “SI unit” as “slut”. Is that wrong?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paininthenet

@lukehopewell You’ve got to admire @e_kaspersky’s ability to troll the entire planet.

@ApostrophePong I said hello from you, but they didn’t really seem to care. These are not civilised rosellas. :/

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

Uhoh. The rosellas have discovered that I’m back at Waratah Cottage. I have given in to their demands. Photos follow.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Is describing somebody as the “next Anderson Cooper” a euphemism?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Thanks, @AndySHastings, I’ve told LG that they should be at around 1,500,000,000,000,000,000 molecules. But 15 or 18, it’s a BIG whoops.

via Janetter for Mac

AndySHastings @stilgherrian Water is 18 g/mole. Say a drop is 50 uL, which would weigh 50 ug. So .00005/18*6.02E23 = 1.7E18 molecules. 15 orders of mag.

And “morming” is SO a word.

via Janetter for Mac

I HAVE FIX0RATED THE TYPINGZ SO YOU CAN STOP CRITICISING ME NAO.

via Janetter for Mac

How dare @engochick not reply to the email I wrote early this morming just because I didn’t send it. She is so… hopeless.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @bernietb: I don’t know what exactly a steam molecule is, but 1600 of them PER DROP sounds like a lot.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bernietb

Thank you, @micmcg @christopherneal @0x1C @moldor, so between 17 and 20 orders of magnitude out. Chemistry is still much as I remember it.

via Janetter for Mac

This science is brought to you by the new LG TrueSteam Dishwasher. All 1600 steam molecules. Page 2, first bullet. stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl…

via Janetter for Mac

I do suspect there’s a tad more than 1600 “steam molecules” in a drop of water. How many orders of magnitude are we out by here?

via Janetter for Mac

“Just one drop of water when heated is equivalent to 1600 steam molecules for powerful cleaning.” Equivalent to. Thanks, LG, that’s Science!

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong Thanks. They’re the biggest parrots in Australia, I think. Much bigger than the sulphur-crested. This one’s a baby.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

Sudden wave of nausea.

Thanks, @peterhau, I really did enjoy seeing the Gang-Gang that morning. This is my favourite of the shots. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to peterhau

@jonoabroad @dobes He was ~1.5m overhead. I was slowly stepping closer, chirping reassuringly, but his parents did an alarm call and ZOOM!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

So, I got a photo of the Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoo (Calyptorhynchus funereus)… flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

@xb95 Out of curiosity, did you read the T&Cs before joining? I haven’t, and my interest in @Spotify has now ended. I just wonder who reads.

@TheDanBarrett @iain_chalmers Oh if @Spotify REQUIRES Facebook then they won’t be seeing me any time soon. Not I need constant music anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheDanBarrett

@jdub @barrysaunders Hmm… And those nice people at REDACTED taught me how to build botnets too… [strokes white cat with mismatched eyes]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jdub

@bhowarth They’re going to USE BROADBAND? For SOCIAL CHANGE? And ECONOMING GROWTH? THOSE EVIL INDIAN BASTARDS WHAT WILL THEY THINK OF NEXT?!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bhowarth

So, kids, how much research did you do on @Spotify before handing them your personal details and a list of your friends? Ask the friends?

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, @barrysaunders, we need a swarm of such language-correcting robots…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @barrysaunders: Someone needs to write a ‘hear hear’ bot that auto-corrects people saying ‘here here’ [Programmers, please do this.]

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile @SnarkyPlatypus What’s even more impressive, I think, is that the operation @mikko outlined got caught. Do smarter ones exist?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

paulwallbank So reports of Chinese commodities buyers asking for deferred deliveries of iron ore and coal orders isn’t news in Australia?

@lukehopewell It’s going to be hilarious when this whole Craig Thomson thing is revealed to be the set-up for Andrew Denton’s new docudrama.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

Tue plan, unordered: Write a thing each for @zdnetaustralia @CSO_Australia; washing; dinner… where? Overall, try to pull the pace back.

via Janetter for Mac

@nanopunk @tardis_42 In other news, I’m not actually an iguana…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PitcherJenna

So, @lukehopewell, they’ve wrapped the newspaper in its own death warrant? Reassuring. instagr.am/p/K559tSJvMB/

SnarkyPlatypus Hug A Hypocritical Libertarian Day? I thought I would dress up as their nanny and paddle them instead.

@peterhau No no no, it says that yesterday it got to 10C around 1140. I should be right.

nickbilton Seeing TechCrunch writing about CrunchFund news, announced at TechCrunch Disrupt, by CrunchFund VCs, is like staring an Escher drawing.

The last DM I got contained parasites and traces of sarcasm. As usual.

@johnthelutheran @SnarkyPlatypus I was about to ask you to draw a diagram and then suddenly realised… You, Sir, are Rather Wrong.

SnarkyPlatypus I’ve always wondered what an annular eclipse of the heart would be like.

Oh dear. The happy little Vegemites will be unbearable today because they have a new toy on the internet. Watch ‘em pour their data in!

Chewsday, and for the first time in two weeks I didn’t wake up around 5am.
