@citizen_cam Well not the kill bit, obviously. But I’ve had a professional run me through some of the techniques.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to citizen_cam

@citizen_cam Very possible. Also to kill that way. Also to grab in the right spot and render complete agony with a twist. Had it done to me.

RT @bigmac: are you thinking of dropping some more in to make it worth it? [Oh I like this sort of logic!]

via Janetter for Mac

The amenity has been opened.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @WarWraith: gold or silver coins? [I don… My friend doesn’t know at this stage.]

via Janetter for Mac

So how many coins do you need to have dropped in a toilet bowl before it’s worth going after them? Asking for a friend.

via Janetter for Mac

@GardenerRob Oh excellent. I just got back to my hotel room so I’ll check it out shortly. I knew some mad Scots pipers way back. Memories.

@franksting @corduroy I have had four dumplings and multiculturalism.

via Plume for Android in reply to franksting

C & K Food and their dumplings are over there, @mat_thommo instagr.am/p/Vv2rn8CFmw/

via Instagram

The children are all ignoring the tedious band, and are launching dozens of tiny blue-LED helicopters into the air.

via Plume for Android

Most of the food stalls are already closed. They must have buses to catch. Or satellite TV to watch. Or maybe they just hate the band.

via Plume for Android

The dumplings are from C & K Food and they are fresh and yummy. Both C and K have nice smiles.

via Plume for Android

Would it be wrong to point out that not a single one of them is Chinese?

@PolemiCol I won’t copy’n’paste all the Macquarie entries, but my summary is that any subtle differences are essentially obsolete.

@PolemiCol Macquarie has first gloss for “despite”: “preposition 1. in spite of; notwithstanding”. If I were editing I’d call ‘em the same.

@franksting When I was living in Redfern, the house next door was hit by drive-by shootings a couple of times. I’m kinda used to them now.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 6:14 PM, Feb 15th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Following @franksting’s lead, I should mention that I’m currently in Parramatta and there are places where one might drink.

RT @bernietb: Jernalismists is the correct spelling. [Yeah true, sorry.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @juhasaarinen: Meterorrhoids are the worst.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @snerdish: Look, it’s easy. A Meteor is the non-supercharged version of the Merlin. The Meteorite was the 8 cylinder version of that.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @GeordieGuy: Meteorites grow down from the roof, meteors grow up from the floor. There’s a rhyme. [Exactly. But do they learn?]

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, I suppose we will, given there seems to be so much trouble even over such a basic concept as “alleged”.

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose we’ll have to explain to journalismists the difference between a meteroid, a meteor and a meteorite, right? Sigh.

“Indo-European Fascist banter”. I see.

Are there any sensible Finns? Any at all?

RT @juhasaarinen: @stilgherrian @e_kaspersky Ебать твою мать с метеоритом… [Spoken like a true Finn. Sigh.]

via Janetter for Mac

I bet these meteors turn out to be some stunt pulled by @e_kaspersky.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @snerdish: @stilgherrian Suspiciously quick denial. Quick, hold him down, search his pockets for meteors.
