RT @NewtonMark: Or enough get-up-and-go to jump it. [Jesus, Newton, wait up! One step at a time! These people are challenged as it is.]

I’d say that Labor had jumped the shark, but that would be implying they had the skill to organise the shark.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Oh that’s pathetic.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Wait, that Labor “one lie per day” thing is real? I’d assumed it was someone’s joke. smh.com.au/federal-politi…

The new episode of @TheRoastTV is on @abciview so you should watch it but it is not yet on YouTube so you should not watch it there.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@leslienassar What you say us true, but I can’t be seen to be agreeing with it.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to leslienassar

Note to self: Blog post explaining that live tweeting an event isn’t just rebleating the out of context sound bites you agree with.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

NewtonMark Facebook: “John Lindsay and 5 other friends like acmadotgov.” I’m expected to believe that? In what state of matter would @bigjsl like them?

RT @JohnBirmingham: Discovered you can set a potato on fire with a microwave. [Oh, we need to talk…]

Suddenly realising that the only significant thing I have to do tomorrow is head to Sydney to collect my computer.

via Plume for Android

I’m kinda wishing I’d gone to the nutjob festival that @jturner_ibrs is at tonight.

via Plume for Android

[Tweet deleted because it could be interpreted as incitement to commit a serious indictable offence.]

via Tweetbot for iΟS

RT @juhasaarinen: @stilgherrian Savant, don’t forget that. [Sorry, you’re right. I think.]

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I am ignoring @juhasaarinen because he is an idiot.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

The good thing about getting my computer back tomorrow is that I can resume my plan for flooding you with podcasts.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@JohnBirmingham Oh, I forgot to reply. Yes, great to catch up last week. Next time there shall be whiskey.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Mind you, if we’re talking about fencing off Hyde Park with razor wire, a re-education camp, and a canal for ditching failures, I’m for it.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Seriously, as soon as anyone suggests a “water feature”, it’s time to slip the strychnine into their breakfast.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

And iOS tried to correct Joe Hockey as a catamite to a calamity. Which it should be.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Look, @R_Chirgwin, can you please not talk about Joe Hockey as a catamite? I’m having enough trouble.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

And an “education centre” for the War Memorial? There already is one. It’s called the War Memorial. Which fool got the edifice complex?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Plans to build a “water feature” in Sydney’s Hyde Park? There already is one, fucktards. A reflecting pool. For quiet reflection.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@jonoabroad Explain that to your children and see what they think.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to jonoabroad

NSW politicians always look so trustworthy on TV, don’t they. The sort of people you’d leave you wallet with while taking a slash.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@jonoabroad I have no idea what you’re talking about.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to jonoabroad

I have just received word that my MacBook Pro has been repaired. Again. I shall be in Sydney tomorrow then, should anyone want me.

RT @michaelmeloni: @stilgherrian bloke is you, right? [No. I would never* swear at the television.]

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I have the sneaking suspicion this web firm has a trove of stuff, but it’s all protected by “our email address is secure”. Damn.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@gordon_j The line “our email address is secure” is hilarious though.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to gordon_j

@gordon_j Depends on the circumstances. I know everything’s email under the hood these days but I’d try to make an effort with another path.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to gordon_j

I think I might leave replying to that email until the morning, lest I tell them what I think of them.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Web dev firm taking over client from me needs the domain password. “Our email address is secure so you can sent it through to us.”

via Tweetbot for iΟS

When I get a house, I’m going to do the decor exactly like the set of “Deal or No Deal” and then spend the rest of my money on acid.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@Griffiths_John Or, if their account is locked, external researchers can’t even see if they’re tweeting or not,

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Griffiths_John

@Griffiths_John But, “engaging” is not a thing. Someone could be an active daily reader of Twitter, but sending only DMs…

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Griffiths_John

@Griffiths_John Ao, arbitrary. Real science would see what absence of tweets is needed to be a reliable indicator of abandonment.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Griffiths_John

This nap isn’t working.

@Griffiths_John Presumably that could be part of the next stage of the research. Why 28 days?
