@SnarkyPlatypus @NicholasFryer See, the wonderful thing about nukes is that you really don’t need that many.

@R_Chirgwin @willozap No, they also seethe and bubble for a while after you’ve topped up the water.

I fear the coming of a world where there won’t be any more repeats of “Sea Patrol”. And then where will we be?

@SnarkyPlatypus I had some cider in Katoomba earlier, but there was a lunchtime insurge of noisy tourists avoiding the rain, so I fled.

@SnarkyPlatypus Your tastes are as exquisite as ever.

@SnarkyPlatypus Pubs in vaguely “tourist” or “youth” or “cosmopolitan” areas are likely to be open.

It is 40 minutes until the next train, but 10 minutes until the pub opens. Is this really what Jesus would have wanted?

Anyway it really isn’t good to ask too many questions about pies. Pies have secrets.

DO YOU WANT TO KNOW THE CHICKEN’S NAME WOULD THAT HELP DO YOU NEED A FORMAL INTRODUCTION.

IF YOU DO NOT KNOW HOW PIES WORK WHY ARE YOU EVEN AT THE PIE COUNTER.

FFS ALL THE PIES HAVE A SIGN SAYING WHAT IS IN THEM YOU DO NOT HAVE TO ASK THE CHICKEN AND MUSHROOM PIE HAS CHICKEN AND MUSHROOM IN IT.

All eight in this group of tourists must discuss their choice of pies with all the others as the counter staff waits. Individually.

@scottcarson1957 I won’t claim to be particularly good at it, but I have a slight appreciation of the challenges of submarine operations.

via TweetDeck in reply to scottcarson1957

@scottcarson1957 Well I’ll certainly watch that video with interest. WWII submarine warfare was something I used to game/sim rather a lot.

via TweetDeck in reply to scottcarson1957

OH: “Oh my gawd, pies! And I don’t have cash!”

via TweetDeck

@scottcarson1957 There’s a lot of emphasis on individual commanders’ tactical responsibility and improvisation, I gather.

via TweetDeck in reply to scottcarson1957

@scottcarson1957 Story is a CENTCOM officer once said that even if you have a copy of their orders, you don’t know what AU forces will do.

via TweetDeck in reply to scottcarson1957

@wobster If I say this is far from the first time I’ve been here, that might answer the question.

via TweetDeck in reply to wobster

@scottcarson1957 Ah, I’ve heard of that incident but not seen the video. Will watch when I get back to @bunjaree.

@andrewfaith I’m figuring Katoomba will have to have options because tourism. If not, I’ll just burn down the entire town.

@andrewfaith This is my fear. “Proper shopping” tomorrow, I guess, but today the larder is bare. I am at the mercy of a vengeful God.
