@ApostrophePong There is high praise in that article. I can get most of it via Google Translate.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@R_Chirgwin The outage was PSTN, cable and NBN in Lilyfield and Rozelle etc. This is obviously something else.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Oh. Yeah, that’ll do it. Wednesday night or so? I assumed it was the Lilyfield PSTN outage listed by Telstra, but obviously not.

@NuclearAnthro Who said “testicles”? (Now there’s a sentence!)

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Yeah, you could go with that, though “highly” is a judgement call, so I wouldn’t use it in news, but might in an op-ed.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Adding “on children” is always good. Were they under 10? Then “young children”.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Accurate but catchy. “Unethical medical experiments using radioactive tracers” might do the trick. Accurate, uses the R-word.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Unethical, yes. “Radiation experiments” is a bit of a stretch though. Radioactive tracers aren’t that scary.
