@arcadiagt5 @scottcarson1957 Thanks. I know the program vaguely, so I’ll add that to my reading list of early atomic history.

@PeteLawler Thanks. I was all set to do it last weekend, and then food poisoning happened. I think the podcast is cursed. I’ll exorcise it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PeteLawler

It may not be called Scroungetember. There have been other suggested names for the subscriber drive. Happy to hear others too.

via Janetter for Mac

Since you (didn’t) ask, I will finally get to making that episode of “The 9pm Edict” this weekend, before I kick off Scroungetember.

@MsLods @FarrellPF The determination to have a thing called “metadata” is the determination to maintain an obsolete accident of history.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MsLods

@MsLods @FarrellPF It’s what happens when you try to describe a specific technical desire without using any actual technical terminology.

A few dozen well-placed strike sorties down Parramatta Road should solve all of her problems, right @702sydney?

via Janetter for Mac

Parramatta, thanks to traffic, is now “impossible to live in”, according to a @702sydney caller. Well, F/A-18s to Iraq is the wrong choice.

Imagine if sick people had to fork over $7 instalments to cover Mr Rabbit’s military ambitions. Nah, that’d never happen.

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder whether Australia’s budget-repairing F-35 purchase is a similar flag-waving exercise. It’s certainly got fuck all mission needs.

via Janetter for Mac

Someone once suggested Australia bought M1A1 tanks so the next time the Anglo 5 rolled into Baghdad there’d be a few Aussie flags on TV.

Onward Christian soldiers.

Abbott sends in Soapy to “help” Muslims stop the mostly fantasy-threat of “radicalisation”. Helping Catholicism stop paedophiles, less so.

via Janetter for Mac

Remember, Abbott may not want to sell his arse to remain PM, but he’d be perfectly happy to sell your sons’ and daughters’ in a dodgy war.

via Janetter for Mac

Also a worry is Abbott’s apparent need to be pleasingly subservient in his “combat” and the idea that General Abbott would win in the polls.

via Janetter for Mac

Major-General Tony “Shit Happens” Abbott.

via Janetter for Mac

Mr Rabbit’s fetish for the military and kiddie-military language is a real concern as he seems ever more keen to get Australia into a war.
