@Justice__Denied No worries, man, it’s been a crazy kind of day, and I was in full rant mode. :)

@bigjsl Good Fortune with your new world, BTW.

@MrCsandDs Yeah people say that every time my meds are out of balance. But thanks, obviously.

@troyhunt I reckon you’ve been rumbled, Troy.

via Plume for Android in reply to troyhunt

Enjoying watching @troyhunt’s commentary on the scammers currently doing the ol’ “We’re calling from Windows” support scam on him.

“Baby Boomers” and “elderly” are synonyms now, right? Keep up the Pilates and Sodoku, folks! Back section of the paper. The colour bits.

via Plume for Android

RT @NewtonMark Who, apart from the elderly, is listening? [Fair point.]

via Plume for Android

Politicians should probably stop using “Stalinist” as an insult. Who, apart from them and the elderly, will understand?

via Plume for Android

@Justice__Denied Um, possibly you missed the sarcastic intent of that tweet?

“Little connection between the coordinated introduction of ID scanners and reduced levels of alcohol-related assault” aic.gov.au/publications/c…

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: How are ID scanners meant to reduce alcohol-fuelled violence in Kings Cross? [They won’t. aic.gov.au/publications/c…]

@methadonna If we have forgotten that, then bring on the asteroid. (And I get the irony in me, of all people, saying that.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

I have now lost all sense of perspective, scale and reason. Just bulldoze me into the ditch. We’re done.

via Janetter for Mac

As the news is read to Auntie Jenny in the Gibson Desert, blind at just 47, she turns gratefully to her daughter and asks, “What’s ‘Aldi’?”

via Janetter for Mac

@methadonna If an act is indeed “obviously inadvertent”, then “outrage” is clearly OTT. Offence is a different thing. Calibration? [Shrug.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

@methadonna Nothing wrong with pointing it out, or even being offended, but “outrage” is a different thing, and maybe disproportionate.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

@hailants No I’m not OK with that at all, FFS. But that’s not what happened today. See tweets to others.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hailants

@methadonna … but I’ve been frustrated by (some people’s) assumption that the t-shirts all but equate to Cronulla. T-shirts are dumb, yes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

@methadonna That is, celebrating one thing “ignores” the other (needs fixing!), but doesn’t “negate” it. Hard to do the nuance here…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

@methadonna … as well as equating marking the federation of Australia (wrongly) with the assumption that it negates what came before.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

@methadonna Ah, no. (In)sincerity is not at all the issue. It’s about choosing a point on the “outrage” to “innocuous” scale…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

@methadonna I don’t understand your question, sorry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

So that Test Cricket thing that people were celebrating. Remind me again what symbology is on those floppy green caps? Do Aldi sell them?

via Janetter for Mac

I mean, fuck me, racism was almost eliminated in Australia, peace and fucking harmony, until those Krauts tried to sell some t-shirts.

via Janetter for Mac

What’s shitting me is the idea that if you’re not outraged in a particular, detailed way then you must hold the diametrically opposite view.

via Janetter for Mac

@methadonna I’m not. Far from it. But I suspect that by now no-one is really interested in any attempted explanation.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to methadonna

Note to the More Remarkably Stupid Amongst You: I AM NOT MOUNTING AN ARGUMENT IN FAVOUR OF THE T-SHIRTS, OR THAT THEY’RE FINE. IDIOTS.

via Janetter for Mac

Watching people attach their own baroquely pre-constructed
“meanings” to a handful of words like faeces to the kindergarten wall.

via Janetter for Mac

I can tell, this is going to be like arguing with a wardrobe.

via Janetter for Mac

@hailants This is exactly the confused, jumbled “thinking” I’m complaining about. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hailants

Christ, these people are so stupid they don’t even understand what it is they think they’re complaining about. Bet they live in Balmain.

via Janetter for Mac

Who are these fuckwits who reckon the Aldi t-shirts are “racist”? They’re ignorant and look cheap (surprise!) but hardly racist. Name names!

via Janetter for Mac

Probably about the same time Labor figures out how to organise a fuck in a brothel.

via Janetter for Mac

There are actually people in the Coalition who can do Strategy. I wonder when they’ll undo their ball-gags.

via Janetter for Mac

Sorry. “Abbott”. “Strategy”. OK, I see my mistake. As you were.

via Janetter for Mac

So maybe Abbott’s startegy is to let them all say whatever they want over summer, so it becomes clear to everyone who to cull.

via Janetter for Mac

@InfosecPup Excellent. My stupid ideas have become stuck in a rut. I need to broaden my horizons.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to InfosecPup

@garystark I see what you did there, but you are wrong. Be glad for this, trust me.

The Emergency Duck is now being prepared for immediate deployment.

I’d like to talk to a psychologist about why a man would want to add testicles to the back of his vehicle. Then again, do I need to?

@rycrozier It’s a shame the whole “family doctor who knows you for life” thing seems to be fading into history. PECHR is a poor substitute.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rycrozier

@rycrozier Ah yes, I know what you mean. I think I’ll stick with the guy who’s been my GP for 18 years. He knows what’s what in my world.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rycrozier

So today I am feeling pretty much the way my doctor warned me I might feel. How dare he be competent.

Maybe I should become a libertarian.

Considering deploying the Emergency Duck.

via Janetter for Mac

I think you should be more supportive of my creativity.

I still think Wang Drum is a great name for a band.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: was it anything like this? youtube.com/watch?v=oN7DFB… [No, they had AK-47s, mostly. Well-equipped, those Taliban chaps.]

via Janetter for Mac

@RealNickHodge You too, eh? So who did you end up picking for lead singer?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

Shortly after this, I had to hole up in a farmhouse because the Taliban were determined to kill me. I suspect they were not alone.

via Janetter for Mac

There was a huge discussion over whether it made any difference, musically, whether they were flaccid or erect. “Soft pop” jokes ensued.

via Janetter for Mac

I dreamt I was auditioning members for an electro-pop band, Wang Drum, who all played Syndrums with their penises.

Wednesday, post insomnia and then some very disturbing dreams and then more insomnia. Whacko.
