@SnarkyPlatypus I don’t know that Gallipoli had such a presence back in my day. But as I’ve said, WWI isn’t a thing that I know much about.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus It’s not a point that’s stressed in the standard narrative of Gallipoli. The schoolgirl in the clip thought it was a gap.

@BXGD @kashhill @jeamland Well, my school teachers said I was disruptive. That’s more or less the same thing, I guess.

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@monsieurarion @SnarkyPlatypus @stufromoz Yes, that’s my understanding too, from my brief stint in the sexual health sector.

via TweetDeck in reply to monsieurarion

@BXGD @kashhill @jeamland I’m not a fan of the “steal jobs” terminology. Too much like “stealing customers”. But I take your point.

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@monsieurarion @SnarkyPlatypus @stufromoz But that then gives the authorities a guesstimate of what they’d need to deal with if real.

via TweetDeck in reply to monsieurarion

@monsieurarion @SnarkyPlatypus @stufromoz So, since there wasn’t a proportion on 19% of the population in hospital, far from it… a drill.

via TweetDeck in reply to monsieurarion

@monsieurarion @SnarkyPlatypus @stufromoz Around 19% of Sydney residents, including me, took no precautions whatsoever, so surveys said.

via TweetDeck in reply to monsieurarion

@WeAreSydney Oh of course, it was only half-way through your eight-year cycle. [Slaps forehead.]

via TweetDeck in reply to WeAreSydney

@SnarkyPlatypus @monsieurarion @stufromoz I still have my theory that there was no actual contamination, and that was a drill.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@BXGD @kashhill @jeamland That said, “freelance journalists” aren’t a utility service for the whole community.

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@BXGD @kashhill @jeamland Not really. There isn’t that real-time price-setting. Tends to be on a longer cycle. But elements of it, sure.

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@WeAreSydney True. Speaking of which, I wasn’t paying close attention. You had to resign your MLC gig to content Newtown?

@logicfrenzy @bastardsheep I don’t really know much about WWI, at least compared what I know about WWII.

via TweetDeck in reply to logicfrenzy

@logicfrenzy @bastardsheep A quick scan of the Wikipedia entry suggests the Russo-Turkish War was a separate thing, earlier.

@bastardsheep Well that’s the core of @russellcrowe’s point. A more mature, complex discussion of Gallipoli and war in general.

Interesting that the X-47B refuels in-air with a drogue-and-probe system, not a boom. I assume that’s for the extra flexibility.

Of course it’s a budget emergency, @SnarkyPlatypus, because an emergency allows the Rabbit to bully everyone into deciding without thinking.

@SnarkyPlatypus @amworldtodaypm Yes, there still is rather a lot of class-ish language differentiation when talking about new media forms.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @number86: @stilgherrian @amworldtodaypm Took to it…. WITH A HAMMER! [Good idea.]

via TweetDeck

I’m thinking, @amworldtodaypm, that it implies a sense of “other” about a medium that now just normal human communication for most people.

via TweetDeck

Why is it always that people “took to social media”, @amworldtodaypm? People are already using / on social media, and a topic comes up.

via TweetDeck

The states should just be abolished anyway.

Colin Barnett, just STFU.
