There’s a new episode of “The 9pm Edict” appeared last night. stilgherrian.com/edict/00030/ Also on SoundCloud. soundcloud.com/skankmedia/e00… Suffer.

via Plume for Android

@aimee_maree Either way, that’d be @RNDownload. Hence my confusion. That conversation did mention some of the uncontroversial items.

via Plume for Android in reply to aimee_maree

@geehall1 There’s surely ways to discuss the options without having to give away the details of how they’d be implemented tactically.

via Plume for Android in reply to geehall1

@geehall1 Perhaps, but there’s a political discussion before the tactical one, and I believe that should include us mug citizens.

via Plume for Android in reply to geehall1

@geehall1 We have well developed vocabularies for discussing military operations, and we should use them. Not evasive generalities.

via Plume for Android in reply to geehall1

@geehall1 Yes, you have missed my point. Which is that the phrase is vague political hard-waving used to escape specific discussion.

via Plume for Android in reply to geehall1

Mobile. Implementing the plan.

via Janetter for Mac

@geehall1 I suspect you’ve completely missed my point.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to geehall1

In general, if you discuss international conflict in clichés like “boots on the ground”, I’ll just assume you’re an idiot. It’ll be quicker.

via Janetter for Mac

@aimee_maree Wait, are we talking about “The 9pm Edict” podcast posted last night, or ABC’s @RNDownload? I’d assumed the former.

In any reasonable kind of universe, my life would be based on a Bon Jovi music video.

@leslienassar @dobes The traditional method? Go drinking near the port, get very drunk. When you wake up, you’re bruised and in the navy.

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 9:34 AM, Oct 8th, 2014 via Janetter for Mac)

@aimee_maree Maybe it’s taking “the laws need updating” as “these specific changes are geed”? I’m guessing here.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to aimee_maree

@aimee_maree Oh I’m intrigued, ‘cos once before recently someone took one of my comments as support. I’ll re-listen when fully awake.

@terencehuynh @danilic But unless you’ve got cancer-like growth, you’re invisible in Startupland. It’s a blind spot.

@aimee_maree I disagree with that too. I’m a bit puzzled as to why you seem to think I agree with that sort of party political spin.
