RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Pymble Ladies College secretly converts into a landing strip. Just like Thunderbirds. [Silly me. I knew that.]

It’s great to hear ABC @RNBreakfast discussing people being found “in coitus interruptus with a dog” before 0700. Happy days!

via Janetter for Mac

I’m still trying to work out where this airport is at Pymble.

The Badgerys Creek booster was one Christopher Brown, a former member of the Sydney Second Airport Steering Committee.

This Badgerys Creek booster has spend a lot of his interview whinging about “the Hawke-Keating governments”. Yeah, move on, mate.

Badgerys Creek booster: “Tony Abbott has called himself the infrastructure prime minister and that’s music to my ears.” Sing it, mate!

Episode pencilled into the schedule: “The 9pm Western Sydney Border Patrol”.

via Janetter for Mac

Badgerys Creek booster: “It’ll mean the kids of Plumpton, Penrith and Parramatta can have the same opportunities as the kids of Pymble.”

via Janetter for Mac

Badgerys Creek Booster: “Western Sydney is the only city with more than two million people that doesn’t have its own airport.” Lulwut?

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, I’m listening to ABC @RNBreakfast, so this will end well.

@freshchilli Oh I used to devour SCOSE reports in my own ABC days. Just wondering if it lasted. It’d look like a prime cut to some.

MT @NewtonMark: Great line from @smh article: “senior ministers who matter have come to a decision”. Fuck all those other senior ministers.

via Janetter for Mac

It seems to me that The Media has been co-opted into delivering internal political messages for Cabinet’s benefit. Where’s that tweet…

via Janetter for Mac

I love that the second Sydney airport thing is being reported as “Cabinet is expected to approve today”. Who’s “expecting” this, exactly?

via Janetter for Mac

Tue plan, draft: 0915 ABC @RNLifeMatters; write for @zdnetaustralia; finish writing up (not very) SEKRIT project (yes, actually); reading.

via Janetter for Mac

Hey ABC friends and antagonists, is ABC SCOSE (Standing Committee on Spoken English) still a thing?

@SnarkyPlatypus Détruire la Lune. Nous devons détruire la Lune.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Shouldn’t ABC editorial policies prevent @RNBreakfast saying that an image was “Photoshopped”? Or do we just Hoover it up now?

@CabbagePatchCat @normanswan Here’s the context of the story. He wouldn’t have said it without her green light. abc.net.au/radionational/…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CabbagePatchCat

Hah! I just heard @normanswan refer to a female journalist as being “a long way off the fertility cliff”. He’s such a charmer.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. C’est froid. Je suis mécontent. Si les choses ne s’améliorent pas, je vais peindre le rouge de lune ce soir.

Today’s song is therefore obvious, right? youtube.com/watch?v=Oh5J33…

via Janetter for Mac

“Stratofortress”. These days, of course, the B-52 would be called the “Cyberfortress”.

via Janetter for Mac

During the first Gulf War, one USAF B-52 pilot was chuffed to be flying the very same B-52 that his father flew in Vietnam.

via Janetter for Mac

The last B-52 was built in 1962. The youngest in the air is therefore 52 years old. All possible with or without an Australian car industry.

via Janetter for Mac

The time period from the Wright brothers first powered flight to the B-52 is shorter than from the B-52’s first flight until now.

via Janetter for Mac

Tuesday. Happy birthday to the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, which first flew 62 years ago today. youtube.com/watch?v=HoevkH…
