@NicholasFryer Ta, but as I said to the illiterate @NewtonMark, it’s just joy at what that kid wrote. Fake? Meh. “Letter to Virginia” stuff.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NicholasFryer

@NewtonMark I have cracked your code, you bastard, but these are tears of joy. That kid just pwned me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

Can I admit to shedding tears right now?

It’s a simple question, really, NSW. They have all the stuff, yet we were richer. Where’d the money go? A one-sentence answer should work.

via Janetter for Mac

If NSW is the richest state in the world’s richest country, where’d the money go? Poorer places have more stuff. So where’d the money go?

So, Paris to Brussels is faster than Sydney Central to Penrith. Congratulations, NSW, you useless, corrupt bunch of arsehats.

@sherro58 As I am suddenly discovering. :) It’s a shame ComLaw doesn’t pair the explanatory memoranda with the final legislation.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ben_hr

Whatever @aaronpp’s views before “the incident”, I don’t think I could have written as measured a piece while still processing the emotions.

via Janetter for Mac

I guess I’m now “judging” (or forming an impression of) @aaronpp from one blog post. But I can see a bloke just trying to process it all.

via Janetter for Mac

Just imagine, @aaronpp getting messaged by every self-righteous urban fag, homophobe and tabloid media producer on the planet.
