@702sydney @KKeneally Possibly all you’re seeing there is the vastly different demographic between ABC 702 listeners and Bulldogs fans.

This is a truly glorious takedown rant, and me cherry-picking a few cute soundbites does not do it justice. newstatesman.com/blogs/laurie-p…

“She really does believe her personal problems in achieving mind-blowing orgasms to have universal application to the future of womankind.”

Dopamine is a ‘feminist’ neurotransmitter, apparently. Mere chemicals have political intent in Ms Wolf’s, erm, Vagina. newstatesman.com/blogs/laurie-p…

“I have spent a disturbing few days with my nose buried in Naomi Wolf’s Vagina.” newstatesman.com/blogs/laurie-p… HT @leighsales

Opening the amenity.

@smperris I am not in the mountains. The location field is always correct, if not accurate.

Local men are not permitted to be seen driving a car smaller than Paraguay, nor listening to music at less than 105db effective.

via Plume for Android

The local women are not allowed to wear shorts that extend below the cervix. Unless they’re Muslim, then not. There is no middle ground.

via Plume for Android

Tom yum talay and Singha will solve all the things.

via Plume for Android

Also, the fierce competition that drives down prices in Thaitown doesn’t reach this far west. Cheap temporary student labour ditto.

via Plume for Android

Ah. It would appear that for the locals this Thai food stuff is a very special and exotic treat. I shall watch with interest.

via Plume for Android

RT @glengyron Worse: People going out to dinner with half an already open bottle… [Yeson for them!]

via Plume for Android

I keep seeing it. Two people going to dinner with one bottle of wine. HOW DOES THIS EVEN IT IS A MYSTARY.

via Plume for Android

Having arranged for the much-needed amenity to be delivered to my room, I’ll take a stroll in the evening air of this oft-maligned city.

@quods “Smart Security Saves Time” is still pretty lame, no?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to quods

@Wyld Heh. Yeah it’s a bit special. Still, everything in the suitcase was put back neatly where I’d originally packed it. I think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Wyld

@jeamland @bleeters Don’t effing well drag me into this!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

“Friday, the Skrillex remix”? I don’t know what any of that means (true) but it nonetheless sounds immediately wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

“Don’t suspect your neighbor: report him!” jwz.org/blog/2012/09/d… Great “Brazil” reference. HT @natecochrane

So why aren’t our political leaders out there condemning Sydney’s Kebab Shop Riot? TABLES WERE FLIPPED! police.nsw.gov.au/news/media_rel…

@ApostrophePong We’re 3 eps into series 2 now, and it’s still consistently good. And disturbing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

A TV fan needs to update the Wikipedia page for “Rake”. Nothing on S02 yet. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rake_%28T…

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong @Prohairetic Sure, but I hear “Kath & Kimderella” is shit. You’d be better off watching series 2 of “Rake”. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong @Prohairetic Let me re-phrase that, because I watched the trailer properly. That looks like a bloody good movie!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

Welcome back to normal human society. Such that it is.

via Janetter for Mac

So “cat lover’s” is a kind of pizza?

via Plume for Android

@ApostrophePong @juhasaarinen I agree. Shoot them all. But 50 rounds fired in Bangkok and no casualties? Crap gangsters.

via Plume for Android in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong @Prohairetic Looks an interesting movie, thanks. Hope I can find a subtitled version.

via Plume for Android in reply to ApostrophePong

Still trying to understand what ludicrous arsehattery led to a rugby team based in landlocked Canberra being styled on vikings.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah. That was the Canberra Raiders’ Toyota Cup team I, erm, “encountered”. That explains why they still have faces.

via Janetter for Mac

It world also seem that automangle creates meanings all of its own. But we knew that.

via Janetter for Mac

Having examined the merchandise at close range, I may have to reassess my views.

via Janetter for Mac

It world seem I’m sharing digs with the Canberra Raiders.

@RealNickHodge The Bren is clearly the better choice for me.

via Plume for Android in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge I’ll take the Lee-Enfield, thank you. My understanding is that the Thompson gun was a temperamental creature.

There shall be pasta, and red wine. And a booklet about Mr Rabbit.

via Plume for Android

More than two hours to download this software? And it’s just part of what I have to do? Lunch beckons now, methinks. Mobile.

Software updates then lunch. Yes, that’s the go. Lots of each.

@oberonsghost All the old-style RSL clubs are fading away. Inevitable, really.

@voiceofapollo In my view, Facebook is run and continues to be run by people who are… not honourable.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to voiceofapollo

@voiceofapollo Hate’s the wrong word. Hate is emotion. My distrust of Facebook is… well, these. crikey.com.au/2010/06/02/cri… abc.net.au/unleashed/stor…

@expectproblems For reasons I don’t understand, not being a petrol-head, the Holden Torana was indeed much loved. We had one once.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@RossBlandon Then my work here is done. I thank you. [bows]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to captnrosco

@expectproblems And, while it was invented in the ’60s, the Holden Torana really was one of the highlights of the ’70s. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holden_To…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems I’m not sure why I would want to feel like I was in the ’70s. I was there the first time around and it wasn’t so flash.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems You manage to find so many ways to give me one of those little electric thrills inside. I like you very much.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@RossBlandon You seem to be indicating that I am surprised, or being sarcastic. Neither is the case. It’s magnificent, from the outside.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to captnrosco

Rooty Hill RSL is a true glory of modern architecture. I’d like to explore ir properly one day, should anyone wish to accompany me.

@D_Keating This window also had bubbles in the laminated glass. Would that mean it was bad when installed? Can bubbles form later?

@RevRichardColes @ProfBrianCox Parallel universes works for me. Happy coexistence. Mind you, I was never a many-worlds interpretation fan.

via Plume for Android in reply to RevRichardColes

Oops. No change. No pie.

via Plume for Android

Mobile: Taxi to Wentworth Falls; maybe a pie; 0932 train to Sydney; walk to weekend digs; disgorge baggage (sounds better in French); lunch.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @expectproblems: That you need a bigger sample size? [Fair point. @ProfBrianCox @RevRichardColes]

via Janetter for Mac

If you’re in D:Ream, you become a physicist (@ProfBrianCox). The Communards, a Anglican priest (@RevRichardColes). This explains… what?

via Janetter for Mac

RevRichardColes I should like to apologise to shocked and sleepless Tweeps everywhere for obliging them to imagine J Clarkson having a Magic Moment.

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 9:00 AM, Sep 22nd, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

@mspecht @coliwilso I approve of this plan, provided that Jeremy Clarkson is IN said Shuttle-Car and we FIRE IT INTO THE SUN.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mspecht

T minus 15 minutes and counting.

via Janetter for Mac

RevRichardColes There comes a point in a Bond film when I begin to be haunted by the idea of Jeremy Clarkson achieving a climax and I have to switch off.

@stufromoz Yeah, I thought I’d stick to an example from the current century. But YMMV.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stufromoz

Bugger. Misjudged. Not enough time left to do the vacuuming I’d planned. Still, I cleaned the toilet, so that’s a bit special.

via Janetter for Mac

T minus 30 minutes and counting.

via Janetter for Mac

FFS! How many “last” flights is that goddam Space Shuttle going to have? It’s worse than John Farnham.

@SnarkyPlatypus If it’s a fresh Time Machine backup, it’ll also be indexing it for Spotlight search. Inefficient disc head movement FTL.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus My last run encrypting a 1TB drive, admittedly over USB 2.0, took 22 hours.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, your first encrypted backup will take some hours, as it encrypts the entire HDD.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @Prohairetic: Recommend some Thai gangster films? [I’ll have to seek expert advice. @ApostrophePong?]

Sat plan, finalised: Finish tidying; 0932 train to Sydney; blog en route; lunch (where?); plan next week, sort of; evening TBA.
