RT @NewtonMark: Paleo-anal. [It’s a rich vein…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

When the world finally realises it needs the word “paleo-artisanal”, know that I was prepared.

via Janetter for Mac

@JennaPrice @ACCAN_AU @Telstra Oh. I hadn’t seen the context. In terms of “things can break”, I’d say that backup plans are end-user issues.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JennaPrice

@TrishHepworth Hah. I’ll probably just use Project Gutenberg’s own explanation.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TrishHepworth

@TrishHepworth Yes, my explanation is a bit wobbly there. I was going back to fix it and then forgot. Will expand on it tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TrishHepworth

@ACCAN_AU @JennaPrice @Telstra “Becoming”? It’s YEARS since publishing, say, T&Cs on a website has been considered adequate. We’re there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ACCAN_AU

It sounds more serious in all-caps, @marshontap. Project LEFRIGOBAR. There.

via Janetter for Mac

marshontap As it is near beer o’clock, I can reveal the internal designer codename for the FTTN cabinets: le frigo-bar.

@EX_V19 That is exactly how I’m connected NOW.

Has Warren Truss gone missing? Why are we mounting a search?

@JasonOzolins @mpesce @peterjblack @BernardKeane In the UK, yes, but AFAIK no equivalent has been passed in Australia yet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JasonOzolins

@j_hutch @mpesce @BernardKeane @peterjblack No that won’t work. And not just because Frank Thring died 20 years ago.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_hutch

@marcfennell @Colvinius @DownloadABC I think my best bet at this point is to admire your deep, deep brown eyes? It brings back memories.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcfennell

@marcfennell @Colvinius @DownloadABC I grew up on a farm. Cows don’t respond to subtlety. I’m not sure where I’m going with that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcfennell

@mpesce @BernardKeane @peterjblack Possibly not quite as many book sales, but the film would certainly be atrocious.

@mrjwo I see you’ve got the hang of his thinking.

@mpesce @peterjblack @BernardKeane I’d need to check latest revisions of anti-terrorism laws on that. Could be charged with obstruction tho.

Apparently, @1395FIVEaa, some 12 to 15% of injured Allied soldiers in WWII were saved by penicillin.

via Janetter for Mac

Best invention? I agree with @1395FIVEaa’s studio guest that penicillin is the one. I’d also add sewers.

via Janetter for Mac

And that’s my contribution to the @1395FIVEaa discussion. I think the talkback is going to be interesting. fiveaa.com.au

I do like my spots on @1395FIVEaa. They tell me that nothing has changed in Adelaide in nearly two decades. Oh. They can see this.

“Clive Palmer says” is a way of starting a news story. Any news story.

It’s “disgraceful” that South Australia’s Labor government buys its flags cheaper from neighbouring Victoria. Something something economy.

@juhasaarinen Damn actors. They can act in different roles. How dare they.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

I think I might start a think tank.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, in the @1395FIVEaa radio spot shortly, we’re also talking best and worst inventions, not just the internet. Any suggestions?
