@snurb_dot_info It’s basically Klingon rotated through a fifth dimension.

@snurb_dot_info (a) It’s a lie. (b) It’s used for swatting flies. (c) It’s all in the vibe, man.

via TweetDeck in reply to snurb_dot_info

I can explain everything.

@benwaughuk @kcarruthers Everything is for a purpose, or at least an excuse

via TweetDeck in reply to benwaughuk

@samhighley Oh yeah, that’s right, it’s like a heart attack.

via TweetDeck in reply to samhighley

slimejam Yeah the writing’s pretty good but for me it’s all about the aspect ratio.

@samhighley I have no idea. What are the other three? I’ll watch out for them.

I can smell citrus fruit.

@sylmobile @NicholasFryer You are as the clucking of so many chickens.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

Listening to a podcast explaining how to implant false memories into people’s minds. For, um, theoretical interest.

via TweetDeck

@NicholasFryer @sylmobile My vision is already pretty scattergun within its realm. Anyway, I’ve half written it today.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer I’ve got my own fuckin’ vision, FFS.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@sylmobile @NicholasFryer Something is deeply wrong with you people.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

@NicholasFryer Uhuh. Sure. If you want to do it that way, you can.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer Yes, but as previously explained, can’t be arsed.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@SnarkyPlatypus Well at least it has good dress sense then.

@toaf IT’S AN OUTRAGE DO YOU HEAR ME AN OUTRAGE.

via TweetDeck in reply to toaf

Why is it Friday?

via TweetDeck

@garthk Bear in mind that policy was decided by the other bits of the MEAA, the actors and musicians and dancers and so on.

via TweetDeck in reply to garthk

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah, but producing video is also all about attention to technical detail. I couldn’t be arsed.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Rather than record a video tonight, I have decided instead to take the more sensible step of muttering “Nah, fuck that”, and opening wine.

@R_Chirgwin @will_ock @Colvinius To be honest, a 40% markup for a trusted brand over random crap in a chipboard box seems quite reasonable.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @will_ock @Colvinius Um, Richard, your stata title apartments generally don’t take to random blokes with a drill.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@will_ock @R_Chirgwin @Colvinius Good question. That would also bring maintenance like distilled water top-ups into it.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

@R_Chirgwin @Colvinius @will_ock Another factor is what warranty is given.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @Colvinius That is to say, it’s not just the battery hardware, but the business service value to the customer.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @Colvinius One thing to think about is the integrated global supply and service chain. Compared with what we have now.

@monsieurarion I haven’t clicked yet, because I’m on the train. I guess I shan’t click, to protect your virtue.

@monsieurarion Did you do the really, really obvious thing?

@bastardsheep @kcarruthers Where would one even get kale? Pet supplies store?

Errands complete. Awaiting the next , which is in 13 minutes.

Right. One more errand to do, and then I can leave K-town.

How would you even know if you had become Gwyneth Paltrow?

Look, I’m not so sure, @BruceHore @SnarkyPlatypus. Things have been weird.

via TweetDeck

Wait. What if I’m actually Gwyneth Paltrow?

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve only ever met one dolphin, and he bit me.

Remember, Howard the Dolphin has the answers to all of your questions.

@jpwarren @5at5daily Yeah, it was rather good. I’m going to compile a few reading lists on these, my favourite topics.

@AussieJessy @NicHalley @drearyclocks @macleanbrendan @ScottRhodie Well I’ve got better things to do with my time. Like drink.

via TweetDeck in reply to AussieJessy

@macleanbrendan @NicHalley @ScottRhodie @AussieJessy @WeCrushSocia Yeah, the ol’ peril-sensitive sunglasses approach to life.

via TweetDeck in reply to macleanbrendan

@SnarkyPlatypus This is. The combined wedding cake shop, patisserie and Malaysian café.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m going beyond laksa, and the old woman approves of my decision. Hot and sour soup, then nasi lemak chicken rendang.

Arranging some Malaysian things. Nice Malaysian things.

via Plume for Android

Anyway, it’s time to head to Katoomba for a rather large number of errands.

via Plume for Android

@jplonie @smperris Yeah, but I’d intended to record and edit the video today. The first half of May has become a cashflow annoyance.

via Plume for Android in reply to jplonie

@smperris I’m thinking without pants would be the way to go here.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@mogadeet @BXGD @BruceHore Well, yeah, doing some stuff as videos is on the longer-term list.

via TweetDeck in reply to mogadeet

When I say “special”, I mean special, @BruceHore.

via TweetDeck in reply to BruceHore

Trying to think of an inducement to get people to subscribe (with money, that is) to “The 9pm Edict”. Maybe a special video just for them?

@MsLods It’s such an effective use of committee time, isn’t it, this reading aloud of s document that’s already been provided.

via TweetDeck in reply to MsLods

I see that, once more, Freedom Boy is confusing people with possessions. What a useless, useless turd.

via TweetDeck

@jplonie Oh good. I’ll take my pants off then.

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

The automotive industry should make greater use of random lengths of nylon rope. All this “welding” and “metalwork” is for softcocks.

via TweetDeck

Gosh, I used to know all of the knots, splices, and whippings featured on this site. scoutknots.biz And used them all in anger.

via TweetDeck

@GreenJ No-one wants to have to face all those numbers starting with a 6 or a 7.

via TweetDeck in reply to GreenJ

Appropriate technology was deployed. scoutknots.biz/knots/roundtur…

via TweetDeck

@Ronki Same deal for me, more or less. They knew the Scouts were a paramilitary organisation, and trained us appropriately.

via TweetDeck in reply to Ronki

@NathanaelB @bernietb @bunjaree Yeah, the lug snapped off one of the mounting brackets, so it isn’t held into the sliding track.

via TweetDeck in reply to NathanaelB

@Ronki Both groups were very fieldcraft-oriented. Given a pile of stuff and an hour to turn it into a raft before riding it 20km down river.

BXGD @stilgherrian “We used to tie all our doors on with string, hinges not having been invented yet.”

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 11:34 AM, May 1st, 2015 via TweetDeck)

The latter necessitated the former, in this instance. twitter.com/faully33/statu…

via TweetDeck

@michaelneale Terri should be right. She only has to drive 3km back home, from where it can be fixed properly. One door bracket is broken.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@bernietb @bunjaree Yep, engineering. A second pair of ropes cross-tensions it diagonally. It’s not moving. But then neither is the van yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to bernietb

Well, provided the door doesn’t pull the headrest out of the driver’s seat, fall off, and decapitate some child pedestrian.

via TweetDeck

My thanks to a farm childhood and the 1st Gawler and 1st Prince Alfred College Venturer Scout groups for their training in decades past.

It’s amazing what can be achieved with a few lengths of rope, and a round turn and two half-hitches. pic.twitter.com/UEFKKvur6H

So, the side door fell off Terri’s Tarago at @bunjaree. We have tied it back on with some rope. pic.twitter.com/GpIMvjbm6l

@jtwyman It doesn’t strike me as a very flaggy sort of day. But then I’m not in Canberra.
