Mind you, I’m in the Blue Mountains. Have you seen the sort of loops and non-entities who run for political office up here?

via TweetDeck

I like how the Liberal candidate lists being an adviser to Joe Hockey as if that’s something you’d want to admit to.

via TweetDeck

I pity the voters of North Sydney, having to pick a candidate from that cavalcade of dross.

via TweetDeck

There’s even a “Bullet Train For Australia” candidate, so ask him how many houses get demolished to make way for the trains.

via TweetDeck

And look at the candidates you’ve got to choose from, North Sydney. What a clusterfuck of disappointment. abc.net.au/news/elections…

Meanwhile, Bad Sextoys would’ve sorted out those Japs with a few zingers about workplace relations.

Can you imagine how we’d have fared if we’d had all these Young Liberals wannabes manning the Kokoda Track. Jesus wept.

“I promise to represent the people of North Sydney until I can’t have the cabinet job I want.” There’s respect. What a softcock.

via TweetDeck

That’s right. There’s a by-election tomorrow because the Member for Being a Big Sook can’t be arsed finishing the job he was elected to do.

@PointZeroOne @Serrels Don’t they dig holes in the garden?

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@garystark I would occasionally produce or mix blues and bluegrass and jazz gigs, which means you get to listen closely.

via TweetDeck in reply to garystark

@garystark I can understand that, even though it’s not as close to my tastes as some others. I can hear why people like it though.

@Manic_Henry HAHAHAHA. Well I was dubious of @R_Chirgwin’s confidence, so it was well-founded. Thank you, Sir.

via TweetDeck in reply to Manic_Henry

@leslienassar Maybe we should delete that guy from the internet.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@zackster That’s correct. He deleted the immediately previous tweet which said he hadn’t deleted all his tweets, but he actually had done.

via TweetDeck in reply to zackster

So @corybernardi has deleted the tweet saying he hadn’t deleted all his tweets.

@ericscheid The weather has been in my favour. This pleases me.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@pascalg15 @R_Chirgwin @00101010b @jeffsonstein @semibogan The antechinus is a marsupial the size of a mouse but a hunting carnivore.

via TweetDeck in reply to pascalg15

@jeffsonstein @00101010b @semibogan Oh God, I remember seeing this research before.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@semibogan @00101010b @jeffsonstein I believe @R_Chirgwin has seen an antechinus take out a Sydney funnel-web, which is bold.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

@semibogan @00101010b @jeffsonstein The only problem is that the antechinus tend to eat the spiders.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

@semibogan @00101010b @jeffsonstein Yep, between the huntsman spiders and the antechinus, we have almost no little-critter pests.

via TweetDeck in reply to semibogan

@00101010b @semibogan @jeffsonstein Or sister, in that case, but yes. Huntsman spiders are our friends.

@jeffsonstein I’m pleased to dee that xs4all is still a thing, actually.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein The huntsman on the toilet roll is female. Fatter abdomen, chunkier build. Tho a different species from my photo, I think.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Well we used to have impala. But they’ve all been snatched by the spiders.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein There’s a few reports each year of kids being snatched from kindergartens, but Australian parents are just resigned to that.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Rabbits. Dogs. Horses. Impala. That sort of thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Yeah the bigger females, up to 15cm leg span even, tend to freak out people the first time they see them.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein They’re extremely common in AU woodland and urban areas. They are our friends.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein That’s a huntsman spider, probably male because it’s slender and has a small ~7cm leg span. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Huntsman_…
