Could also ditch the ridiculous emission standards being driven by the Eurotrash as well & have no need for adblue

Last I checked, better than 80% of the rail motive power in this country does not require AdBlue. And that includes the museum pieces and chuff-chuffs that the tourists like to photograph…

Couldn’t it be distilled from sewage?

Pee. In Roman times the launderers invited passing punters to pee in their vats, since the urea was good for bleaching clothes. I’m drawing on Lindsay Davis from her Falco historical detective novels, but I suspect it’s true since she has relevant quals from Oxford and is very good at weaving in gritty history into her novels. Also I’ll add this:

Just replied to an email from Liberal candidate for Cowan, Vince Connolly. His email banged on about Labor lies and Medicare cuts and GST cuts!

My reply

Hi Vince,

I have stood for public office twice (unsuccessfully) namely the 2016 and 2019 federal elections as a senate candidate for WA.
This email from you and what it’s about, demonstrates clearly to me why I can’t vote for your party anymore.
The failure to make sure that mandatory vaccines and vaccines passports would not happen are a failure. The excuse that there was nothing you could do is BS.
My prediction is that the next federal election will result in a massive vote shift away from both Labor and Liberal.
My wish is that the minor parties on the right have the balance of power.
Finally, give yourself an uppercut.

I’m still a fan of deflecting asteroids by exploding a largish nuke nearby. Fireball transfers heat by radiation to surface which vaporises and acts as a rocket motor. This is possibly a way to move the “gravel pile” type asteroids also.
The really dangerous asteroids will be the ones in highly elliptical orbits which we fail to see until they are coming at us almost out of the sun. Tricky navigation, guidance and timing problem to do anything about them.

So where do they store three months worth of date rolls for 120 men/women/confused?

Submarines on a war patrol often store a “false floor” in many passageways; ie: tins of food all of the same height, with some sort of flooring over the top. Has to be worked out carefully, as you don’t want stuff which can break up and get into the pumps if you are trying to save the boat in a damage control situation.

Over time all of the stores get consumed, so you can get rid of the false floor. In the same way there is more room provided by firing off torpedoes, with the reloads getting used up.

A rather odd design feature in WWII and before had stores, including torpedoes, stored outside the pressure hull. The submarine was basically the watertight pressure hull, with a deck above it – the outer casing – with a framework of struts and so on to hold it up. There were hatches and the like to open up compartments. They were “free-flooding” which meant they were open to the sea overall, although some could be wateright; eg: if you had an aircraft hangar, as some WWII boats had.

So the outer deck was a series of slats which meant the seawater drained through it, and all sorts of materials stored between the outer and inner hulls. I was doing some work on the I-124 design (the Japanese 80-man sub sunk outside Darwin Harbour) the other day, and you can see the bulges in the outer casing where two torpedo reloads were stored forward of the deck gun.

That all started disappearing when sonar became more and more effective. The more weird bits you have protruding off the streamlined “albacore” hull the more noisier the boat is on sonar. Just like cars, submarines became more and more streamlined, but in their case not just for speed and fuel efficiency but to become electronically quieter as well.

Lets take over the Collie council and declare independence from McClown based on producing stuff thats useful from coal

The coal itself is still useful, too. Though slow-burning, highly friable (making it a bugger to store) and prone to sparking.

The WAGR used to admix it with imported Newcastle coal in the summer months to cut down on spark-throwing and the attendant bushfire risk.

Abolishes mandatory testing for sexually transmitted infections and allows sex workers to work with a sexually transmitted infection in order to “remove discriminatory, industry-specific public health offences” – Clause 9-10
Legalises street-based sex work in most public places – Clause 28
Prohibits property owners from refusing to rent their properties for legal sex work, in order to prevent discrimination against sex workers – Clause 36.

So that’s the reason for the spark.

Only railway organisation I’ve ever seen that went to the trouble of having draft retarders in the chimney- A mesh screen attached to a wire and counterweight that flips shut and partially chokes the fire when the firehole door is open.

The idea was to minimise the risk of slacks and coal dust on the incoming shovel load being get ignited in mid-air, sucked straight through the tubes and out the chimney as flying sparks.

Most other railways worldwide didn’t go to the trouble of having an extra device on top of the usual mesh spark arrestors and the like in the smokebox. But then again, they weren’t running Collie coal…

Geology of Collie looks interesting, nomenclature indicates the sediment deposition wasn’t entirely uniform. All sitting on a Precambrian base. Reminds me of drilling in SA, once we hit the green lithologies of the Adelaide basement that was TD, they were Cambrian era.

Errr… Hit up Bellarine Peninsula, Victorian Goldfields at Maldon, Puffing Billy or Steamrail.

Ask if you can get access to some of the dross in their coal stages. Pay if you have to.

The stuff will usually be some form of Gunnedah or other Hunter basin coal, and the dregs will probably pre-crushed. Avoid the lumps of slate if you can.

If you get glossy black lumps or greyish, powdery coated stuff, you can smack it to size with a hammer and sieve to the size you need. As this is still ‘live’ and combustible coal, you will need to burn it first.

If you are actually after the ash (call carbon and volatiles consumed) for making foundry sand, the same mobs would probably be very happy for you to make off with a few bucketfuls from their ash pits after a running day. Smokebox dustings will be your friend there- Anything out of the ashpan will be full of clinkers (fused iron pyrites), which can be sharp and will play merry hell with your gloves.

Sovereign Hill might have been the place to chase up once, but they have converted all their steam-operated machinery to compressed air or electric operation. And I don’t know if the paddle steamers at Echuca are solely oil-fired or not these days.

Astute observation, Mr. Forwheels.

Absent the worldwide revolution, Fascism is the logical advance on Socialism, with Corporatism & faux Nationalism added to the mix.

The only viable option for electoral success for Labor given that they’re no longer the party of the working class, which was in large part destroyed because of policies they adopted in the 1980s.

Since it’s the ALP & Ausfalia, however, we’ll miss out on the storied benefits of Fascism:

Cheers, something to delve into this weekend when I get bored.

If it helps, when Bennett Brook Railway imported its two South African Railways NG15s in 1983, some of the SA fuel was found still in the tenders.

Geological examination and comparison revealed that the fuel these things had been running on in Port Elizabeth was almost identical to the profile of Collie coal.

Now, I have fired some real shit in South Africa, including (presumably) Wolverkrans coal that was little more than flammable slag. It was hard to reconcile the similarities of the fuel, given that Collie coal’s friability extends even to its clinkers (You can disintegrate even a big one with a sneeze).

One I have on film. Another we were still getting above LEL CH4 readings on the gas meter at 20m from the collar a week later.

However the fluids were going somewhere and the only conclusion from both of us was a fault. He was worried the client would quibble on the usage of additives and standby to send the water truck away. I was happy to vouch for this one. Client was relaxed about it, I guess expected but we lost the rod string a couple of days later when the hole bridged trapping it solid.

Painted Dog poll shows close to half of all WA women want Tanya Plibersek as Prime Minister
Lanai Scarr
The West Australian
Fri, 3 December 2021 8:00PM
Comment

Close to half of all women in WA want Tanya Plibersek as Prime Minister following a week where the treatment of females in Parliament House was under the spotlight.

A Painted Dog poll conducted for The West Australian of 801 West Aussies found while Scott Morrison was still the most preferred Prime Minister overall, a closer look at age categories and genders revealed a different story.

In a worrying sign for Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese former Deputy Labor Leader and now Shadow Education Minister Tanya Plibersek had a higher preferred PM rating than he did.

Mr Morrison had the support of nearly half of West Aussies with 41 per cent preferring him as PM, followed by Ms Plibersek, at 32 per cent and Mr Albanese at 22 per cent.

Defence Minister Peter Dutton, who ran against Scott Morrison in the leadership ballot that ousted Malcolm Turnbull in 2018, only secured 4 per cent of the vote.

Males are significantly more likely than females to prefer Scott Morrison as the Prime Minister – 47 per cent of males prefer him compared to 36 per cent for females.

But female West Aussies are significantly more likely to prefer Ms Plibersek compared to males 41 per cent compared to 25 per cent for males.

While still behind both Mr Morrison and Ms Plibersek, Mr Albanese highest preferred rating was among younger West Aussies.

However Mr Albanese secured just 26 per cent of the vote for 18-39 year olds compared to 32 per cent for Ms Plibersek and 39 per cent for Mr Morrison.

Giving Labor more reason to use WA Premier Mark McGowan prominently in the federal election next year he is seen as the more trustworthy leader to the prime minister by more than three-quarters of voters.

Of those polled 78 per cent think Mr McGowan is the more trusted leader compared to 22 per cent for Mr Morrison.

Females are significantly more likely than males to trust Mr McGowan more as a leader compared to Morrison with 86 per cent of females seeing the WA Premier as more trustworthy compared to 71 per cent for males.

Males are significantly more likely than females to trust Mr Morrison more as a leader compared to Mr McGowan with 29 per cent of males seeing the PM as more trustworthy compared to 14 per cent for females.

Trust for Mr McGowan compared to Mr Morrison reduces among older West Aussies, with the opposite true of Morrison where trust increases with age.

The poll results highlight the importance of the female vote at the next election.

The last parliamentary sitting week of the year was dominated by the treatment of women with the release of the Kate Jenkins review on Tuesday and a statement by a former Alan Tudge staffer that the Education Minister was “abusive” during their consensual affair.

The support for Ms Plibersek will cause ripples within the Labor party who know that they need to win WA in order to win Government.

The Labor Party has its eyes set taking the WA seats of Swan, Hasluck and Pearce from the Liberal Party to help win Government.

How will Prime Minister Plibersek get on, with certain countries, who get antsy about not allowing anyone with a criminal record, into the country.

I’ve been shouting at the TV and the incompetent public service scum barracking for more lockdowns and their enablers in the journalism business who hate freedom.

Tom, it’s endemic to all sectors, ubiquitous, widespread and surging through every pore in Australian society.
To be honest, The Cat seems to be one of a very few sites in Australia where the orthodoxy is questioned.
No wonder 99.99% of my friends, family, acquaintances and sparring partners on other sites are pro lockdown, anti the non vaccinated, and pro compulsory vaccination.
The stories emerging from Howard Springs are met with “So what?”

Looks like protests, large and small, are having an effect.

Clearly, the kinds of parents that raced their 12 to 15 children in to get vaccinated want to do the same with 5 to 11s and are no doubt clamoring for that opportunity, all in all, with Dictator Dan, it’s all politics, all the time.

“The state government has given its clearest indication yet of the criteria it will use to scrap controversial vaccine mandates as criticism grows of rules forcing people to prove their vaccination status in shops and other settings.

“Premier Daniel Andrews said the rules could change in the next few weeks but only after health authorities assessed the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines for children aged between five and 11, and the booster program”

Premier hints at end to rules locking out unvaccinated, at the age might be paywalled

Love this video. There’s a great “making of” on a dvd of Fatboy’s – fun to see how it was done.
