@nehadk Because it’s not that you want NRMA to notice. You want others to notice you taking to NRMA. Or something.

@nehadk That said, I am a terrible human being.

@nehadk What we have here is someone who can’t drive safely on a well-built highway trying to get profile capital out of their incompetence.

@nehadk Don’t feel bad. 1. If you can take a photo, you weren’t “nearly killed”. 2. Hashtag BWM? Fuck off. 3. Single vehicle accident.

@tacticalmaid The RAAF was trying to sort a flight, but I left the ABC before we got all the ducks sorted.

@tacticalmaid Just as an aside, I’ve a tour thru the back of an AP-3C Orion.

@tacticalmaid In searching for that photo, I also came across this. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@tacticalmaid You have the immunity, though. From growing up with your father.

@tacticalmaid OK, so now I’m embarrassed to rediscover how sad and tragic my life truly is.

@tacticalmaid The air intakes over those turboprops. Is that an AP-3C?

via TweetDeck in reply to tacticalmaid

@NuclearAnthro Also, do you see the Me-109 hanging there in the background?

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@TheRealKerryG No worries. I’m pretty sure there’s a book around. She was a tough girl, up on the front line. Much respected.

via TweetDeck in reply to TheRealKerryG

@NuclearAnthro Yes, the technology did indeed improve over that century. They were good WWII tech, just stripped back to the essentials.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Oh, and re the Sydney Harbour attack, all four subs were defeated. The RAN buried the crews with full military honours.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro There’s also a Lancaster bomber hanging in one of the galleries.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Where its hull was torn open, AWM has tidied that up so you can peer inside. They were pretty basic. pic.twitter.com/wEFgGjifC7

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Sorry, AWM is the Australian War Memorial, which is also a museum like IWM in London. It’s superb. awm.gov.au

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Just as an aside, there’s one of those midget subs, from the four that entered Sydney Harbour, in the AWM in Canberra.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@NuclearAnthro Is there ever not a time to debate that?

@TheRealKerryG Lee Miller’s story is fascinating. You’ll find it with a little Google work.

via TweetDeck in reply to TheRealKerryG

@TheRealKerryG I forger which of Miller’s fellow photographers took the pic, but those are Miller’s boots. She just wanted, needed a bath.

via TweetDeck in reply to TheRealKerryG

@TheRealKerryG The woman is Lee Miller, of the WWII’s toughest combat photographers. The bathtub is Hitler’s bathtub in Munich.

@nehadk I have learned that it’s best not to argue facts with @Histreepix.

via TweetDeck in reply to nehadk

@Histreepix Nevertheless, Lee Miller was an astounding woman. As was Hitler.

I know both of these things.

“According to the source, there is a possibility that the military’s intranet may have been compromised…”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

There’s some confusion in the story about whether this server was on the intranet or not, or if and when that status changed.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

“Around 20,000 military computers are known to have been connected to the server.”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

“The server is tasked with security on computers that the military has for internet-connection purposes.”
