@jeffsonstein Alas, it didn’t work. Shortly afterwards the range safety officer came over to “offer assistance”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein … and inside I was laughing because it was ME giving someone the “this is a deadly weapon” speech. So funny.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein There is a story I can’t tell you here about one such idiot. Annoyed the shit out of me. I had to give him the lecture…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Indeed. Something I learned as a kid. Firearms are for real, and deadly. Take control, take responsibility.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein … and I was quite happy to hear the neat, controlled double-taps of the police from across the road.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein I am willing to admit that some of this may be post-rationalisation. But I was over these arsehats and their gunplay…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein True, Sarge. :P But I was also behind 15cm of sandstone wall. 9mm can’t penetrate that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@semibogan @thegrugq We are all masquerading as something else. :P

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@jeffsonstein Sigh. The gunfire was aimed at next door. I knew that. I heard police returning fire. I was in no danger. I was tired. Meh.

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad I’m willing to accept that some people might not consider firebombing and drive-by shootings “kiddie stuff”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad Nah, this was just some idiot “yoof” who’d pissed off a drug dealer one notch up the chain. Kiddie stuff.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad We’d already had their car explode because it was firebombed. A bit of 9mm is no big deal. (What am I saying?)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad And yes, yes, I accept that maybe that was slightly too relaxed around gunfire but whatever.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad I was behind a sandstone wall and the police were returning fire. Not my problem. Back to bed for me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad That was the thing the kids next door got involved with. Baseball bats into car lights, drive-by, then that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad No, that was a Redfern thing. Arsehat drug dealers versus police. It’d been brewing all week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jonoabroad You remind me of the time I was half-woken by gunfire, listened, went “Meh, next door, there’s return fire,” went back to sleep.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad That’s part of it, yes. It’s about the ready-to-fire position and the engineering to support that. I’m too tired. They all bang.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad It’d make perfect sense if I had some weapons to show you. When the mechanisms are in front of you it’s obvious.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad Well, Wikipedia is very badly written, but the pros and cons of open bolt versus closed bolt are fairly outlined.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad That book is useless. No discussion of open bolt versus closed bolt design of automatic weapons. Useless.

@SnarkyPlatypus Perhaps he should be put in charge of Her Majesty’s nuclear deterrence force. He’d handle Trident responsibly.

@ben_hr It’ll be boring for the next few hours. Rest period, until the walk happened in US TV prime time.

Mon plan, draft: Finish writing for @zdnetaustralia; prepare notes for UTS course; errands, Katoomba; @5at5daily; quiet night, I hope.

@scottcarson1957 Humidity is a bastard, right? I assume that dry clothes were a rare treat?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

@purserj It was definitely an exciting time. The newspapers had reams of technical detail. Science was respected.

@scottcarson1957 Those goddam jungles, Sir, they need to be avoided.

I agree with this tweet by @SnarkyPlatypus and draw it to the attention of @702sydney and All the Media. twitter.com/SnarkyPlatypus…

@scottcarson1957 I was a little young for that sort of caper.

If course if @ReliveApollo11 happened today, most tweets about it would be a simple “Shopped.”

Seriously, @702sydney, the job is about handling information. Staff who can’t use the tools need to go to the re-education camps.

Can someone at @702sydney tell the sports presenter that jolly “Haha I don’t understand technology” stopped being acceptable a decade ago?

via Janetter for Mac

@BXGD True. But I’m being good today and not going down that rabbit hole today.

Here’s a better restoration of the Apollo 11 Moon walk TV footage. youtube.com/playlist?list=… The one I posted earlier has VHS artefacts.

@rickeyre I was at a country school, so it was the whole day off. The logistics would have been too complicated otherwise.

Here’s what the Moon walk looked like on TV to those watching live, not the crisp photos we see today. youtube.com/watch?v=CtwSgv…

@rickeyre It was at a friend’s house for me, but yes, a day off school to watch people walk on the Moon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rickeyre

By my calculations, @ReliveApollo11 should be getting to the actual Moon walk at lunchtime Sydney time. Well, from memory. Shut up.

NASA’s Apollo 11 Lunar Surface Journal, contains pretty much everything you might want. hq.nasa.gov/office/pao/His…

Yeah, so 45 years is rather a long time.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je crée un énorme bûcher fait entièrement de chatons. C’est un petit début. Et vous?

Watch out, Vladimir, we’re sending Julie Bishop.

Monday. They look down upon your pathetic planet, and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh and laugh. Monday.
