@NuclearAnthro Well yeah that’s what I do, I go on TV and radio to scare people.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Here’s my last TV appearance. abc.net.au/lateline/conte… I’m on radio next week some time.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro I appear on radio and TV from time to time, and do my own podcasts, but nothing regular.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro @whiteswine Ah yes, I’d forgotten the term “trinitite”. No such openness with the AU nuclear tests. That’s beautiful stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro I studied computing science (topped my year) and linguistics, then so much radio, I learned so much about how people speak.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro @whiteswine A quick check of Wikipedia says that green colour of ‘cos it’s oxidised as all fuck.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro I loved studying sociolinguistics, and “y’all” is genuine Southerner. :)

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Except for the fuckers that’ll kill you, sure. :) Plus it’s adorable that you use “y’all” as a pronoun. It’s fine thing.

@NuclearAnthro Have I mentioned that @whiteswine is in possession of the triggers of the Maralinga nukes?

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro If @whiteswine is sober, or even if he’s not, he’ll have more to say I’m sure.

@NuclearAnthro I know them well ‘cos they’re a South Australian thing, thanks to John Wamsley, as the Wikipedia article says.

@NuclearAnthro Hah! Yes, the Easter Bilby is a wonderful thing, alas not widespread at all.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Easter_Bi… Bilbies are cute tho.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Oh God no, “cobber” is very much working class.

@NuclearAnthro That said, I doubt that any Australian has actually said “cobber” since the 1970s.
