LOL, track marks.

Anecdote. Mate and I were on GC for 8 hours back in 1997. Surfers, we decided at 10am after being in the wilds for 2 weeks to have a beer. Bar we chose was above/across from the main beach and buggered if I remember the name just remember it was no different to any outer suburbs tavern you would see in SEQ these days.

A lady wanders in, offers to play pool with us. She’s paying… Off her face on something was the first thing I noticed. Next offers us to buy beers, we said counter offered due to her paying pool. Na wouldn’t hear of it but a couple pots appeared.

I was still in my 20’s and had prior experience of Fortitude Valley so straight away I was thinking this chick fishing for a trick. Then I spotted the track marks up the arm when she went for a pool shot. We politely continued the game till a large handlebar mo’ed guy appeared asking what she was doing and where have you been. He didn’t care about us just her. They left.

Later in an advanced inebriation after crawling GC pubs we ended up at the Chevron in Cavil Ave. There she was at the end of the bar with others and the bloke who came looking for her.

Gah, WordPress sucks. I just linked three more articles on the 40% insurance deaths story for Faustus and it went to spam.

Ok, I’ll try just the headlines.

Life Insurance CEO Says Deaths Up 40% Among Those Aged 18-64 (4 Jan)

Insurance Companies Note Jump In Death Payouts Amid 40% Rise Among Prime-Age Americans (26 Jan)

Deaths In 18-64 Year Olds Up 40% Says Indiana life Insurance CEO (28 Jan)

You can put them in a search engine and they should come up (Goolag might not like that site though, since they’re righty).

I linked Jo Nova because that was the quickest since I was providing a fast addendum to Eyrie’s comment to Calli. The story is around in plenty places. Those three I got in about a minute. I do think insurance CEOs might know their own business landscape, it’s their job.

Perhaps you could look at the data provided by the German prof too, it’s even more clear.

Duk and others, there may be an opportunity for me to participate in the Covax-19 trial (for un-vaccinated people) at my local GP. What are the drawbacks of this vaccine?

I covered this pretty throughly here https://odysee.com/@SouthAustraliaInFocus:9/SAIF21:9

Short answer = I would prefer it over any of the genevaxes which teach you to make spike proteins in unknown numbers for an unknown period of time, but there are still problems with COVAX.

1)It doesn’t ‘teach’ your immune system to make the spike, but it still gives you a big dose of it.
2) It is modelled off an old version of the Spike, so is obsolete already
3) Its given by the wrong route (respiratory viruses invade the respiratory system, not the deltoid muscle – limiting its ability to stimulate the mucosal immunity that is really needed
4) The immune system is a ‘muscle’ that needs regular exercise to stay fit – giving it ‘free’ cover via immunisation ultimately weakens its ability to stay effective against the constantly changing strains of respiratory viruses.

puckering at Twatter HQ

Long overdue as well.

Twatter has been a blight on humanity for the duration of its existence. Fatty Trump should have shut it down the first chance he had. Typically, he was vainglorious enough to think he could use it to his own advantage and hang any future consequences. We saw how that worked out.

Banned, he was. And remains so.

When I first had the misfortune to behold a picture of dorsey, who looked like a brain damaged alcoholic drug addict that had just staggered out of a gutter next to an SF homeless encampment it struck that that he was the physical embodiment of the abomination he’d vomited onto this planet.

Anecdote time – the anti-social imbecile responsible for the commercialisation of twatter sometime in the last ten years was the cousin of one of my best mates, who I’d known since I was about seven.

To paraphrase Tom, he possessed no other earthly skills than an ability to talk in code. Never even finished his HSC. The last time I saw him, he was livin’ large in SF, describing how that online sewer had just started linking to ads and “this will allow us to rake in multi millions, man”.

I hope the Musk nukes them all, from orbit.

Anyway, in one of them there was a piece about the friendship between Jessica Rudd and Daisy Turnbull, the opening salvo is that “what drew the two women together was the how both their fathers were knifed in the back by mean, nasty political opponents”.

LOL, no mention, of course, about how Daisy’s daddy knifed a sitting PM by the name of Tony Abbott in 2015. No mention about how Jessica’s daddy spent two and a half years hunting down another sitting PM by the name of Julia Gillard, finally knifing her in 2013.

Morrison the capitulating coward gets scared by a some progressive scum in the MSM and on social media sewers screaming and screeching about rights for perverts and autogynephiliacs. It seems Morrison agrees that tranny rights are more important than women’s rights.

I think at some point we’re going to have to take a step back and gape in awe at the absolute ankle-grabbing shower the Putinist invasion of Ukraine has been: the worst military campaign in modern history, leading to the greatest strategic reversal for a permanent member of the Security Council in 30 years. It is simply astonishing how badly this has gone. Russia has:

-acquired nothing of any value that it didn’t already have
-lost its defence minister
-lost about 10 generals
-forfeited somewhere about 1/4 of its fighting strength
-lost its main battle cruiser in the Black Sea
-failed to regime change Ukraine and in fact ensured 50 years of implacably anti-Russian government in Ukraine
-lost any residual sympathy it might have had in E.Ukraine
-caused Sweden and Finland to submit formal membership applications to NATO (!!)

Hilariously, much of the anti-Bush anti-war movement in the US (including the Right), SUPPORTED this utter clusterfuck of an invasion! What the absolute hell is that about.

I seem to recall they insisted they would stay and fight, rather than pull back from the city when the rest of the Ukranian Army did.

And yet, while the fall of Mariupol was all but inevitable due to its closeness to Russian lines of communication in the Crimea and the sheer resources the Russians threw at it to obtain a disproportionate local numerical advantage, that we are some 7 weeks into the fight and the city has only been more or less pacified now* suggests to me that the Russian Army will find it a struggle to assault and occupy any other major settlement beyond Kherson in their main axis of effort. Particularly anywhere the defenders choose not to trade territory for space and time, and can reinforce their own…

*And for all the protestations about Vlad Bae’s troops going out of their way to minimise damage to civilian property, Mariupol is now a moonscape.

Davey Boy, local pleb, keeps an eye on goings-on at the local (Cumberland) council meetings. Due to recent council elections Labor has gained the majority 8-7, with a Labor Mayor, results of which may (or may not, who knows) provide insights into what could happen if the Liars win federally in May.

Below is a précis of the latest Council meeting, illustrating how Labor rolls in Cumberland (time stamps are from the summary video):

00:02 Where’s Wally? (Why is a Councilor missing?)
00:37 There he is! (Answer: he’s suspended, something to do with a race horse)
01:35 Council delves into various Foreign Affairs matters, as it often does
02:45 Council pontificates on the Australian Constitution
04:14 hooray 1,800 more units to be built in the best possible location
07:47 Labor Councilors attempt to justify increasing Council Rates
09:20 we discover that Labor Councilors then also want to increase the Grants budget tenfold (10x). I wonder why?
17:26 how much your rates will increase depends on where you live
19:07 we discover that Cumberland Council is forecasting a budget surplus ($3M to $5M) this year, even before the rates increase (so why increase rates?)
20:54 things get a bit shouty
21:44 Labor: if there’s no rates increase then we’ll all be rooned
22:17 Labor uses its majority to vote through the rates increase
23:01 aaaand then we discover there’s also already been a $1M grant to the Council from the feds (so why increase rates?)
24:25 change of subject, a Labor Councilor describes his mass surveillance by government wet dream (aka Smart City strategy)

This is one of the cities in E.Ukraine where Putin was supposed to be protecting ethnic Russians from “Ukrainian Nazis”. So that’s another strategic success for Putin – more countries rushing to join Nato, and Russian-speaking cities being bombed, raped and pillaged by Russians.

Whatever happens from now, no one in Europe outside the Irish Greens party and whoever is running Germany is going to listen to these dumb Russian propaganda talking points again. Decades of successful KGB agitprop and relationships, literally up in smoke.

Winston, the bigger ex-Soviet artillery rockets range to about 35km, and the furthest I am aware large-calibre (about 155mm or so) tube artillery is innthe vicinity 55-70km. And with that, you are doing cheeky shit like rocket-assisted or base-bleeding projectiles to get a little extra velocity once the round clears the barrel.

100km or so from Ukranian territory suggests cruise missile attack, aerial bombardment with stand-off weapons (since presumably the reports make no mention of whether any hosilt aircraft were detected and/or engaged by Russian Air Defence forces) or bullshit.

Possibly even combinations of all three…

Depending on what hit it and how hard, putting that ship into port for a while is as good as sinking it in times like these. Especially where there is no immediate replacement that can be sortied out to take over its station.

And sailing another Moskva the long way round from any other port to the Black Sea will present problems of both logistical and intelligence/political natures. As well as possibly being presented with aggressive Ukranian countermeasures the instant it clears the Dardanelles. If the Turks agree to open it.

Who cares? Whatever their progeny, they are doing a glorious job. Putin started this remember – this was entirely his choice to start this fight. Sure he did a lot of damage to Ukraine, but by fuck, Russia is done, son. It’s been exposed as a busted-ass fake superpower with the worst military in Europe (seriously, if they tried to invade Finland in a few months as revenge for joining NATO, I’d be almost tempted to put some money on the Finns taking Moscow, if they could be bothered). When Putin goes, Russia will simply disintegrate into nothing.

You look at the Russian casualty lists and one thing really stands out – more than half the troops are called “Muhammad” or some version of it. They are down to the dregs of the Stans to reinforce their ranks. If this keeps this up, Kadyrov will be pulling a reverse takeover of Russia and sending Putin to get him coffee.

DPR are also fighting in Mariupol. Apparently they have no problem fighting in the city if that’s what it takes to get UKR out of Donetsk.

Multipke Regiments of. Plus over a Brigade of Russian troops and specially deployed Chechen battalions used as shock troops and such and such and so on and so forth.

And between the lot of them, seven weeks.

Against a Regiment (i.e. 2-3 Battalions) of paramilitaries and local defence troops, apparently completely cut off and barely supplied.

My understanding of that sort of tactical and strategic calculus, and knowing that the last time Russia enjoyed such a substantial advantage over the defenders of a major city, it ended the fight and overran the entire place in 16 days, is that this is just about a Grozny-level cluster. And in that instance, the Russians’ efforts and forces were focussed solely on surrounding and capturing the one city.

And just to add insult to injury, the Chechens rolled the Russians and took Grozny back in just 2 weeks. With an attacking force disparity not dissimilar to that which the Russian Army had when it rolled over Ukraine’s borders back in February…

Bruce: I don’t doubt the Indiana life insurance dude said 40%. However I rest my case re: Trusted Bloggers casually extending random scraps of information without evidence.

Perhaps you could look at the data provided by the German prof too, it’s even more clear.

I probably won’t go searching for the original paper and data, but a quick glance at your link to NoTricksZone shows that Prof. Kuhbandner has got things wrong with the UK data – specifically his apparent assertion that the single jabbed were mis-categorised as ‘unvaccinated’ in early 2021.

Firstly, until around mid 2021, the Brits counted everyone with a single jab + 14 days as ‘vaccinated’.

Secondly: until Week 11 in 2021 almost nobody in the UK was double jabbed.

So, it appears the good Professor has been making up his own version of events when he shows a vaccinated (ie by his definition, double-jabbed) cohort from the beginning of 2021.

Add to this the UK excess deaths statistics for early 2021 show Covid slaughtering the oldies and suddenly I’m not sure how he generated his ‘data’ or what his conclusion is actually based on.

(Of course I may be wrong on all this, because I’m relying here on a Trusted Blogger’s (NoTricksZone) interpretation of a technical paper. )

Wiki (for all its faults and biases) suggests my cited order of battle is wrong, but assessments of numbers not far off.

3,500 defending troops (including 800 Azov Neo-Nazis) for the city and its surrounds, vs 14,000 Russians, Chechens and Donetskis.

4:1 advantage, plus short supply lines and total encirclement and complete supremacy of local seas and skies. This fight should never have taken the attackers 7 weeks to conclude.

Rex Anger
Rex Anger
April 15, 2022 12:51 am

A Battalion consists of ~800-1000 men, a Regiment traditionally is at least 2-3 Battalions, sometimes more. Plus logistical and administrative elements and attached supporting troops.

And a Brigade can be 3-5 Regiments or more. So 10-15,000.

You have a Brigade vs. Regiment fight. Simple numbers nearly always favours the Brigade to overcome the Regiment swiftly, particularly where their training, experience and supply situations are around parity.

Small business boom in the Alice:

ALICE Springs’ two biggest glaziers have become so overwhelmed with requests for window repairs that they have begun limiting after-hours call outs or scrapping them altogether.

Commercial and residential break-ins have surged in Alice Springs in the last year, with the latest NT Police statistics showing a 40.2 per cent spike in property crime over the 12 months ending January.

In a letter to the community, Neata Glass and Aluminium manager Paul Cilka on Wednesday announced that after 50 years, the company had scrapped its 24-hour emergency call out service, with the exception of “key clients”.

“We only have a limited amount of staff,” Mr Cilka said. “Your blokes work all day, especially in the summer … then we’re using the same men to do after hours work.

“When they get called out in the middle of the night … the minimum turnaround is two or three hours, and then they go home and then they get another call. It’s just overwhelming.”

Mr Cilka said the costs associated with the call outs meant the 24-hour service was not viable and was taking staff away from the company’s project-based work.

He said the late-night repairs were also becoming more dangerous for his staff.

“They’re down on the main street, they’re surrounded by 10, 15 or 20 youths … (who are) scouring the truck for whatever they can take,” Mr Cilka said.

“It’s just become a sport with (the youths). Then the (staffer) will leave and then they’ll break the same window just out of spite.

Then granddaughter (very pretty blue eyed blonde) began complaining about how boys were always trying to “hit on her” & she can’t walk down the road (on Sydney’s northern beaches) without comments from boys. I (stupidly) explained that this is just biology, my dearest, & it will be worse if you wear revealing clothing. All hell broke loose & she flounced off into her bedroom. Later I got lecture from daughter about the need to be a sympathetic grandmother, not a lecturer in anthropology – or words to that effect.

The rest of the evening was as expected.

I read her screeds this morning and they speak of WA and Vic and that Australia is a private company run by the UN and much more. Anyone else come across this?
