@RegularClaw @damienmiller @ScottMorrisonMP Oh I’d filed it under “unproductive” at your first tweet. I’m just being unusually polite.

via TweetDeck in reply to RegularClaw

@RegularClaw @damienmiller @ScottMorrisonMP The words have plain meaning as written, whoever you are. If you’ve more knowledge, declare it.

@RegularClaw @damienmiller @ScottMorrisonMP Even if that interpretation were correct (I don’t agree) the message is still can’t trust govt.

@DDsD @johnb78 @purserj Also, a “cruise” can be a 3-day circle just off Sydney Heads with everyone on pingers, booze and rotaviruses.

@ericscheid Indeed. Correction. Abwehr was led by a naval officer, and absorbed navy intel, but was not navy. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abwehr

via TweetDeck in reply to ericscheid

@ericscheid Abwehr (German naval intelligence, old school) didn’t like the Nazis, realised invading Switzerland might screw up badly,

@Viss So you’d be looking at some building’s Pentadom control panel.

@ericscheid Nearly. Abwehr leaked the plans to the Swiss, Germany gave them some Me-109 fighters as an apology. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation…

via TweetDeck in reply to ericscheid

@ericscheid Machines were leased, and “programmed” by IBM staff. What he didn’t prove was a knowledge link back to the US (docs shredded?).

via TweetDeck in reply to ericscheid

@ericscheid Black’s argument is that IBM reorganised the EU subsidiaries to report through Switzerland, but knew what the machines were for.

@Nightwyrm FN has factories in the US (they own both Browning and Winchester too), so Jeb!’s is probably US-made.

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, Glock do make one of the widest-selling 9mm semi-auto pistols for law enforcement use. Cheap and reliable.

“OMG!” Yeah, if you recall, pretty much all of Europe was occupied by Nazi Germany in WWII. twitter.com/Will_Bunch/sta…

via TweetDeck

Dear Everyone (again), Glock is far from the only maker of square-ish looking semi-automatic pistols. Mr Jeb!’s is a design by FN Herstal.

@ChipRolley No, it’s a FN, and Belgian (except FN has factories in the US).

Writing a press release with “accelerate the journey” and execs who get “excited” and having the gall to charge money for this dross? Wow.

People who call the re-make of a movie a “reboot” should reconsider their life choices.

Furries4Corbyn @johnmcternan Stalin not only won WW2 but also doubled life expectancy and changed a broken agricultural country to an industrial superpower

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 10:25 AM, Feb 17th, 2016 via TweetDeck)

How am I expected to work under these conditions?

via TweetDeck

The client will then explain how they’re “committed” to this new strategy, and in a quote a senior executive will say that he’s “excited”.

via TweetDeck

The other thing about press releases with a “journey” is that it’s a good bet the client can “accelerate” that journey.

via TweetDeck

Assuming one needs a “gateway” at all, why wouldn’t the US just go through, say, Phillipines? Or a mainland port? twitter.com/SBSNews/status…

via TweetDeck

There’s a PhD here for a keen student of human nature. Probably also one for a sociolinguist. twitter.com/SnarkyPlatypus…

via TweetDeck

The word is “remake” or possibly just “new version”. And stop being so fucking difficult. twitter.com/PointZeroOne/s…

via TweetDeck

Dear PR People, if your press release uses the word “journey” but does not refer to travel by train, ship, aeroplane etc, I will kill you.

Oh. You should probably not point out that I described SA’s heavy metal contamination problem and then suggested we become an arms-maker.

@ozdj @SnarkyPlatypus I’m reliably informed “slider” was US Navy slang for burgers so greasy they slide across the grill as the ship rolls.

To judge from my @replies, it’s hard to find someone who HASN’T done a story on SA’s lead pollution.

@SnarkyPlatypus @portusprince @glengyron Anyway, Newington was a naval armaments depot, so nothing dangerous there.

What even is cadmium? It sounds like it’s friendly.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@SnarkyPlatypus @portusprince @glengyron Tradies aren’t toxicologists. I’m sure the water and sediment in those colours is perfectly fine.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@gemoo4 @Colvinius @4corners @JaneDoyle7 Yes, linked to it as an example. I don’t think anything has changed. Lead doesn’t vanish.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to gemoo4

@SnarkyPlatypus @portusprince @glengyron … and the short version is they said you don’t want to know.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @portusprince @glengyron I was drinking with Penrith tradies who’d been working on the Newington site post-remediation…

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Colvinius Oh you did that @4corners? I remember the story. I think I was still at what’s now @891adelaide, doing talkback after. A mess.

@SnarkyPlatypus @RealNickHodge I forget what was done about the school, but there’s been a bunch of soul remediation projects in Adelaide.

@RealNickHodge Or was that school at Thebarton, not Hindmarsh? Meh. The whole bloody area is covered in a lead particulate plume. Enjoy.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge Well your first challenge would be finding any to begin with.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge That was around the time they close that primary school at Hindmarsh for lead contamination. SA is basically lead poisoning.
