If the answer isn’t “global conspiracy of the Lizard People”, then the question wasn’t worth asking.

Uhoh, is there a Whitlam thing on the “television”?

@SnarkyPlatypus @engin_eer Oh sorry, that links was a bit useless. Alas, Rose’s book falls into the Analog-Copyright (Mickey Mouse) Gap.

Yeah the “science” against wind farms? Have a listen to its proponent on @RNBBing abc.net.au/radionational/…

It seems that fisting politicians can’t beat a bicycle with Nyan Cat on it. Apparently that’s progress.

Actually @Herring1967’s podcasts are quite good, except for the snooker one. Try this. comedy.co.uk/podcasts/richa… But not the “Special”.

via Janetter for Mac

See, that’s another way to do : Tweet random shit at (half-)famous people you’ve never met and generally suck up to them.

via Janetter for Mac

@Herring1967 @mrchrisaddison Looking very forward to the new series, as are these Australian politicians.

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks, @RealNickHodge. And for those new to Twitterfisting, well, there’s a history. Four years ago… stilgherrian.com/human-nature/f…

Oh I should have done that with a hashtag, right? Is that how you do the Twitters?

@chrisjrn Thanks. Scary thing is, I thought “If no-one answers I’ll use Impact. From memory it looks like Impact.” What does that say?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

What typeface are bad image macros meant to be in there days?

via Janetter for Mac

I still don’t believe @GreenJ came up with the slogan ‘Fisting the Future’. Both inspired and very wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, you should probably keep me away from psychology as well.

via Janetter for Mac

@seancarmody Excellent idea! Aso, I know how it feels. Many times. It nearly mostly won’t kill you. If that helps (probably not).

via Janetter for Mac in reply to seancarmody

@seancarmody Yeah, look the electricity thing? Pro Tip: Leave it well alone. We have tradies and proles^H^H^H^H^H^H specialists for that.

OK, somebody please take the internet away from me now.

“Historic” in that there’s a record of it that’ll never be erased. Like work Xmas party pics. Or that Snapchat vag shot when you were 14.

Oh I get it. Flickr wants to be Instagram as well. And cloud storage. And a passive slideshow. And a social network. And an anchovy.

@joshgnosis @trib Indeed, and a lot of what I write is about global issues. Maybe we should add “Australian” to my bio. But then who cares?

@R_Chirgwin Yes, but it wasn’t a doco about wind power, it was a doco about the community split on King Island (over wind power).
