@jillenelouise @JezNews I strongly suggest that you take up this issue with the UK’s NHS.

via TweetDeck in reply to jillenelouise

That’s from the UK National Health Service (NHS) Atlas of Risk. nhs.uk/Tools/Pages/NH… Try reading about it before whinging.

@neurofluff @SallyRMelb You know it’s not meant to be an exhaustive list, right? It’s just one sample chart for one person.

via TweetDeck in reply to neurofluff

Christ, who ARE all these people who think I actually give a fuck that a tweet didn’t include their pet political whinge?

@NHSWatch @PEdmondsonJones I’m glad you’ve judged the usefulness of the tool by looking at one chart. I always love* that.

@bernietb I could probably build an entire episode of “The 9pm Edict” around a journey to sample those camel balls.

@bernietb Well, I do want to do an expedition out that way some time…

@haruki_zaemon @michaelneale Well there’s only about a quarter of a billion reasons why that would be wrong.

Hey @TwitterAU, you should perhaps give @Ricky_Muir a blue tick now, because people like me are arsehats and easily confused.

It sounds a bit tinfoil, but @ManvBrain thinks MH370 was actually hijacked to Kazakhstan. Either way, good exposition of the search process.

via TweetDeck

Just read @ManvBrain’s “The Plane That Wasn’t There: Why We Haven’t Found Malaysia Airlines Flight 370” amazon.com.au/Plane-That-Was… Intriguing.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus We weren’t told the flight plan, but cabin crew said it’s possible to do 3h30 or even 3h15 hours compared with 4h30 to 4h45.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Mah. Thanks for your suggestions, everyone, but I think I’l have a relaxing sleep-in tomorrow, and visit the Albion Park Museum next week.

via TweetDeck

@pandymonium01 Indeed. And as for location, I’ve very sneakily put that in my profile, and update it as I travel. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to pandymonium01

@SnarkyPlatypus That’s why I was also sulking that we didn’t get approval to do that high-speed run PER-SYD because of the bloody curfew.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I think I’ve mentioned the time I was in a near-empty Boeing 737 that did CBR-SYD in 21 minutes?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I enjoy watching (or flying in) airliners when they’re pushed hard. They have SO much spare performance.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Yowie9644 That may help, but I suspect not on a Sunday. The landing is 0750, and I’d want to scout out a location and watch the approach.

via TweetDeck in reply to Yowie9644

@pandymonium01 Your assumption is wrong. But even so, I don’t think I want to invest this much time and money just to watch a plane land.

via TweetDeck in reply to pandymonium01

@SnarkyPlatypus I hadn’t planned on making media out of it. Just wanted to watch them land a Boeing 747 on a tiny runway.

@staticsan No big story. It’s simply a skill I don’t have.

@nz_liam I don’t think the trains “drive faster” to suit my needs, or anyone else’s.

via TweetDeck in reply to nz_liam

Or, I could catch the 2036 to Sydney tonight, then the 2329 southbound, arriving at Albion Park at 0138, and then… cry, or something.

via TweetDeck

The first train only gets to Albion Park at 0721. Even then it entails a four-hour wait at Central 0100-0500 or so. Not this weekend, mate.

via TweetDeck

Bugger. I’d wanted to get to Albion Park before 0700 tomorrow, for this. abc.net.au/local/stories/… But the logistics have proved problematic.

@R_Chirgwin @lixicat @PitcherJenna This possibly explains its irritation, since I’d thrown out the mouldy bread.

@straynjer Yeah, that fading is very 1970s. I guess the killer photo-interpretation is recognising the types of cars.

via TweetDeck in reply to straynjer

@straynjer Though your “apparently” is mistaken. The date is 18 April 1986, according to the presenter, and it’s a Titan 34D launch vehicle.

via TweetDeck in reply to straynjer

@straynjer That’s right, yes. It’s a slide from the presentation I’m listening to. Links earlier.

@tobermatt I suspect the plan was not to have a Titan III launch vehicle explode, taking its satellite payload with it.
