@dj2mn @SBSNews @antbanister Hang on, you’re right. The first move is not a backflip. So the ODD numbers are back to where you started.

via TweetDeck in reply to dj2mn

@whiteswine Ah, I have MEL and SFO in my agenda first, ‘cos others are paying for it. Maybe a spring McLaren Vale run, and visit @coriole?

via TweetDeck in reply to whiteswine

@dj2mn @SBSNews @antbanister No, it;s even-numbered backflips that go in the same direction. Opposite, original, opposite, original…

@whiteswine “Piggy and the ‘Tiser” sounds like a bad crime-fighting duo.

@whiteswine Sorry, have I just defamed you? It was Piggy or the ‘Tiser, right? Or do you mean the wine trade press?

@whiteswine Yeah it’s a fascinating* process, right? I assume that $2 a word was back during the heady heights of The Adelaide Review?

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh, padding out the dense metal gold with lightweight ceramics, when karats are by mass not volume… this is brilliant!
