    Why waste time remonstrating with bad faith commenters when you can hit Report Comment?

    Good point Ricg=hard Cranium, though it is a toss-up whether you or m0nty=fa are the worst faith commenters here.

    Nevertheless, I shall take your advice on board (but only for your more egregiously stupid comments).

    Went out for dinner this evening at restaurant in the west 40s. We were out with two other couples and one of other gals chose the venue.

    The dinner menu was Italian. I couldn’t figure out why the other two dudes passed the wine list to the other and then finally handed me to choose the wine. I’ve never seen a wine list with most bottles carrying plus $1000 bottles. It was obscene. I called over the waiter and told him that we had no interest in the wine list and if he didn’t have wine at a reasonable price we were leaving. He quickly introduced Chianti at 95 bucks a bottle.

    Defence Health also handing back benefits. We got a similar letter. Must be an industry wide thing.

    On the Airport firefighters, I saw the UFU was involved the other day then my idle curiosity changed to stuff ’em and give ’em nothing. Wonder how much they extorted that us passengers will ultimately stump up.

    On Bruce L, the guy sounds like a sex pest and am unsurprised at other allegations. However that doesn’t make the which hunt against him right. I am getting regrettably less surprised at the pettifogery that resembles judicial process as a result. The courts do themselves no favours when they allow the blindfold to slip or are gutless to the pressures they receive.

    Enjoy your arvo everyone. Might head down beach for a spell. Lovely humid arvo in Cairns, sea breeze is a blowing…

    Not a huge fan of Microsoft since it treats it users as beta testers. Yet I don’t think it fair to expect them to continually update an os designed for antiquated hardware.

    It’s not the antiquated hardware that’s the issue, Bespoke, it’s the trend chasing surplus of social media crap that is the problem, the continued movement of command icons from place to place and the necessity of finding functions that are no longer somewhere rational. Usually stuff is moved to where some focus group of 20 somethings think it should be because some other software they use puts it there.
    Windows !! is a great example of this – in an effort to placate the 20/30 Social Media class who want the latest and greatest, we are left with a mish mash of programs that try to take over our ‘experience’ with software that we have to get used to all over again.
    Windows media was great on XP, but insufferable on Win!!.
    I want Musk to make an OS that strips away the rubbish and allows it to be downloaded as an app or whatever. You know, an Operating System that operates the system not a lifestyle themed collection of software that deliberately makes itself incompatible with the software I want to use.

    second that.

    you can download Linux Mint and make a bootable USB stick or burn it to a CD to boot from.

    as somebody said the other day, youcan install it alongside windows and use the PC in dual boot
    dont have to install it either you could just run it from the USB until you’re satisfied

    either way, once running then you can mount yr existing windows disk and still get to all your old files

    the GUI is nice and finding and installing software is very easy compared to some other Linux flavours

    its also free

    If I’ve stopped one person taking the jab here, or brought to light the piss poor behaviour of the little gang of sneerers in doing the exact opposite, so be it.

    Struth, if you achieved this, “you are a better man than me, Gunga Din” (is that how its goes?)
    Personally, although I respect the choices of others, I really tied my best to deter those who I love. It almost never worked, sadly. Family and friends were ostensibly swayed by the usual reasons: job mandates, school & uni mandates, the desire to travel, go to the gym, concerts etc etc. It mattered not how intelligent they are… even more sadly. They simply refused to do the hard work and research, as many of us did, for two years in fields in which few were not necessarily familiar.

    I was lucky , through a friend, in making the acquaintance (& becoming friends with) Dr. Philip Altman, a retired PhD in Pharmacology who for 40 years worked in the pharma industry – the latter years running his own company which ran RCTs for the TGA! He was appalled at the abandonment of vaccine protocol and concerned from the start with the early evidence of lack of efficacy and adverse reactions. He started a local group of dissenters in our Sydney suburb which still gathers today most Sundays. It was a vital group contact when we unvaccinated were considered lepers. Of course, as many of you know, he and other medicos have formed the Australian Medical Professionals Association and are gathering professional supporters.

    So – on your point about “stopping one person from getting the jab” I really cant claim to have even done this once! Most of Altman’s group, and others I have come across, had reached their decision independently. My wild guess is that probably 30% of people were concerned about the vax program. Whether only 5% refused to comply, as the government claims, is a possibility – but may not be that high.

    I am watching with concern as some friends in my age group are experiencing sudden exacerbation of existing health conditions (maybe due to lack of attention over the last 2 years) or indeed, the emergence of curious ailments that GPs can’t totally understand, let alone fix. Many of these seem to involve joints. Easy explanation is arthritis…but who knows .. in most cases MRI shows nothing.

    The other widespread ailment is simply anxiety disorders. I reckon these are PTSD problems caused by the upturning of society in the last two years. Unfortunately, you don’t have to be vaccinated to suffer from this. Quite frankly, the Covid years, followed by the recent hacking outbreaks, roaring inflation, floods, regional bank closures, the imminent destruction of our energy & fuel security & the probable aggression of China into our neck of the woods, plus the usual crises of ageing ……has caused not a little upset in our particular household.

    Yes – I tried Linux, and it refused to unpack or install. Not sure what happened but it failed at the first hurdle.
    Over the years, I’ve tried to install Linux about 6 – 8 times and each time has been unsuccessful. So I’ve come to the conclusion that Linux is a techies toy and they want others using their toys.

    second that.

    Second that++

    Linux Mint 21 LTS (Long term support) is by far the most user-friendly version distro (distribution) of an OS that is clearly aimed at script kiddies.
    Most other distros seem aimed at obsessive tinkerers stuck in basements, rather than users.

    There’s some learning-curving required, but it’s easily manageable.
    If installed on the HDD, the GRUB multi-booter will also automatically install, it is a welcome bonus that will add flexibility to any PC system.
    Firefox 103+ browser is included in the current distro and works perfectly to replace the bloated Window$ experience.
    Free, open source software is also only a few clicks away and is often better than the commercial stuff.

    Highly recommended.

    Best if you install both on one HDD or SSD.
    The GRUB (GReat Unified Booter) multi-booter will do the work, no need to boot through the BIOS.
    Linux will easily run on partitions of 10GB or less.
    You should install Window$ first, then Linux, with GRUB, will give you the option of booting any other OSes on the HDD, or SSD, unlike the Window$ Boot Manager, which was clearly designed by vengeful coders with personality deficits.

    Arks,
    if your PC allows it jump into the BIOS and just set it to boot from USB before HDD
    you can the put the stick in and it will launch and run from the stick

    if you install alongside Windoze on the HDD then you’ll no longer need the USB stick
    then every time you boot the PC an option will appear to boot from Win or Linux
    select the one you want and away you go

    Ms Higgins’s allegations remain unproven, Mr Lehrmann maintains his innocence, and there have been no findings against him.

    Like the PM, ABC journos can barely restrain themselves. Ms Higgins’s allegations were not proven, Mr Lehrmann remains innocent, and no findings were made against him because the evidence presented at his trial created reasonable doubt of his guilt.

    And, given the fact that the prosecution didn’t have a hope of conviction without Higgins’s testimony, the clear implication from the outcome of the trial is that she lied.

    I do firm handshakes. I like them, plus eye contact. Not weaponised like Latham either. There are limits.

    If some total stranger moves in to hug me, I check them for daggers. Then, they move in and try to give me a kiss. Horrible stuff, and I try to respond empathically, but it usually ends in a weird air kiss. You end up feeling like a found out serial killer.

    At the other end of the scale, I have been known to hug the bereaved and suffering. And on one occasion sit in the gutter with a poor woman who’d just been t-boned by another driver.

    Memories on an evaluating team 1976 visiting Sperry/Unisys in Minneapolis, being taken to dinner by our Hosts to IDS Center Tower – tallest building and only tall building then in Minneapolis

    The 50th Floor contained an east-facing “Orion Room” restaurant, a north-facing bar and cocktail lounge, a private south-facing dining club (“Tower Club”), all which were converted to office space. The west-facing “University of Minnesota Alumni Club” closed to the public in 1994.

    Went for a pee, and the Toilets had Floor to Ceiling windows, with 1st stupid reaction, what if someone can see you? – Dumb, up so high not a hope.

    Hosts knew I liked wines, and gave me the Wine List to choose for Dinner – 1976 Cheapest Wine on list USD $150, going up to USD $3,000

    Not wanting to hit Hosts with ridiculous bill, chose wines around USD $175.00

    Ms Higgins’s allegations remain unproven, Mr Lehrmann maintains his innocence, and there have been no findings against him.

    If he’s speaking in his official role (which he pretty much always is), the PM has qualified immunity and the plaintiff would have to prove malice to overcome this. So it’d have to be shown he either knew the imputations that could reasonably be drawn from his statement were false, or he made the statement recklessly – without due consideration that reasonably drawn imputations would be false. I don’t see how the plaintiff gets there based on the above.

    It’s hard to imagine a defamation action succeeding against a PM commenting on a matter of public interest unless it’s absolutely slam dunk defamatory language. Very few judges would be willing to find against a public figure of his seniority given what he said.

    OCO one of the thing I have noted from the start is that even those of us skeptics have realised there have been multiple allegations prior which have resurfaced after the supression order expired. Brit was even wary of him so something that has niggled from the start is why share a cab with him?

    I’ll be honest I see smoke just not the fire. IMO pestering your workmates for dinner isn’t a crime let alone at the harassment threshold yet till informed “I consider this harassment.” If someone had actually uttered these words instead of sniping on social media behind his back then I have some doubt we’d be here.

    The punishment in this case is disproportionate to any actions he engaged in that I can see. She also seemed to calculating for my liking as well adding to my benefit of the doubt for Bruce.

    There’s a messy separation for our friends which is tee’ing off a bit of a divide. Youngish English bride, bit of a WIFO life but very down to earth hippie at heart. Groom is a bloke’s bloke, does green energy installations, hits the piss with the boys, puts the boat in, surfs.
    Bride’s had a longrunning complaint that the groom has little interest in their kids and goes out with his mates, surf trips and benders, at the expense of their date nights and any sort of community engagement. Complains he controls her spending too much, runs her household budget too tight, tho he does splurge at random on things for her like convertible mercs.
    Groom has batted away her criticism, says she needs to live a little and engage to make his friends into their mutual friends. Complains she wants to spend too much on things like remedial tutoring for kids and family outings.
    Things as they was, I liked her a lot more than him, because we had a lot more in common, but I didn’t think he was a bad bloke, just maybe a bit self-centered and bad at any conversation which doesn’t involve himself.
    I’d put them in the extremely high income for their age bracket.
    Anyway, they’ve split up-
    he’s immediately restructured the finances to lock her out-
    she’s let slip that she caught him doing some unnamed dodgy thing with their ten y o.
    It’s put the whole group of friends around them on boor war footing. Most have sided with her, and the unnamed dodgy act is a whispering campaign in her favour.
    To me, my gut feeling is it’s a malicious accusation. She’s pivoted from complaining that he has not enough personal interest with their kids to accusing him of having a long-running sexual interest in them.
    I’m carefully keeping quiet when the gossip is stirred up… but it’s an article of faith that I insist that the first and best thing she should do is go to the police immediately. It’s the only honourable and moral action, whether it’s motivated by outrage, malice, pity or anything in between.
    Of course, the “but victims are traumatised by the justice process” trope trots out on its hind trotters. I have a hard time taking that to my face.

    How many slaves in California?

    The nine-member Reparations Task Force was formed by California Governor Gavin Newsom as part of the country’s largest ever effort to address reparations for slavery.

    A reparations committee in California has suggested that descendants of slaves in the state could be compensated $223,200 each for ‘housing discrimination’.

    A focus of the California task force has been ‘housing discrimination’ – it has been estimated that it would cost around $569billion to compensate the 2.5 million Black Californians for setbacks between 1933 and 1977, according to the New York Times.

    The story of feminism, from a desire to empower women to the situation now where if a male puts his hand on your thigh at a dinner table, then that’s sexual assault.

    My God, we’re not just at the cliff, we’ve driven over it.

    Today I went down to Barangaroo to meet some family members at a restaurant, it was late afternoon. It’s been a gloriously hot and sunny day here in Sydney. Anyway, walking to the restaurant, I saw two young women walking in my direction, and it was not a pretty sight. Both young women were physically very pretty but the way they dressed degraded them. They were attired in mini mini skirts, their breasts hanging out almost to the point where you could see their nipples, they were dressed and looked like the whores you used to see on William Street Sydney. Apparently that’s now the fashion….the whore look. We now live in an age where the mantra is that it is their right to dress like this, and you must never critique them. I thought of Brittany the Knickerless. Young women have been fed such utter bullshit, it’s why Louise Perry has written a book called “The Case Against the Sexual Revolution”. The truth is that the sexual revolution has failed women and made them more miserable and most certainly more vulnerable.

    By the way, m0ntifa, what do *you* think Roth meant by “Given the severe risks here and the lessons of 2016…” ? What specific lesson did they learn from 2016, do you reckon?

    Russia spread lies through social media in 2016 to benefit Trump, that is undeniable at this point with a bipartisan report confirming it.

    Twitter is one of the companies which had a corporate responsibility to ensure that didn’t happen again. Both the Trump and Biden camps got tweets deleted.

    I would remind that at the point in time we are discussing, Trump was POTUS so if you want to talk about government bullying private companies, you are talking only about Trump.

    It is still a live possibility that when Giuliani went to Ukraine priori to the election, he bought kompromat from Russian sources which found its way into the “laptop”. That was a viable enough scenario at the time to justify suppressing the story.

    From the Oz. This is the Merck drug. Merck was the company that originally had Ivermectin and said not suitable for Covid. Gets hundreds of millions from US Govt and then releases Molnupiravir which it now turns out does not work.

    “The most widely prescribed antiviral drug in Australia, molnupiravir, should no longer be routinely given for the treatment of Covid-19, the national body that sets clinical medical guidelines has advised.

    The new advice from the National Clinical Evidence Taskforce challenges Australia’s regimen of treatment for Covid-19, with molnupiravir currently prescribed by many GPs as a first choice treatment to eligible patients due to its suitability for most people. Another antiviral, Paxlovid, is recognised as being more efficacious but is unsuitable for many people due to its large range of drug interactions.

    Doctors are not bound to follow the advice of the Taskforce, but its recommendations stand as the most authoritative guidance on Covid-19 treatments. Many GPs say they will still prescribe molnupiravir when Paxlovid is contraindicated, but the new advice will mean doctors will generally consider Paxlovid first”.

    Belgranoes 1, Schlockeroos 0 (27 minutes into extra time).

    More realistically, Belgranoes 3, Schlockeroos 0 after 99 minutes.

    Seriously, what’s with the out of control “Fergie Time“* this world cup?

    And it’s a total PR disaster for the sport, and Qatar in particular.

    Was always going to be a mutual train wreck, yet it still happened.

    The idiots in charge successfully navigate into another disaster.

    Africa is only 6% vaccinated, and bat flu has practically disappeared …
    scientists “baffled”

    I’m so fucking pissed of:

    1) It was obvious that the experts and government were in the process of executing a fuck-up of world record proportions.
    2) My call on the matter was basically right, even in the early stages of this fuck up (how can you successfully do in two years what normally takes 10?). But government decided to try and twist my arm to comply with their stupidity.
    3) I was ultimately fired for being absolutely right.

    There must have been some serious “greasing of hands” going on for that to happen

    Gee, no shit, Sherlock? I’ve been posting comments here for years about fifa’s legendary corruption – making as they do, the IOC look like a down at heel beggar lying in a gutter.

    Yet, they just blatantly blunder on, expertly utilising their thicker than rhino hides at every conceivable opportunity.

    It’s an “exclusive club” and we are not in it. Which I’m perfectly happy about. Sleeping well at night is one of the joys of life.

    Just listened to two interesting interviews on TNT radio. Episode of the Mike Ryan show on 1st DEC.
    Prof Wendy Hoy AO talking about the vax and blood and clotting issues.
    George Christensen talking about seeing the vax through microscope and vax / virus in general

    Can find TNT radio on Spotify.

    From Courier Mail. Classic BS example.

    A federal government department ordered Walkley Award-winning cartoonist Mark Knight to take down a Herald Sun cartoon of Uluru and demanded he apply for a permit to draw the rock.

    The Herald Sun received an extraordinary legal letter on Thursday afternoon from Parks Australia – which oversees the Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park – accusing Knight of breaching media guidelines with his cartoon in Wednesday’s newspaper.

    The letter from a media officer demanded the drawings be removed from the web.

    “These artworks do not have media permits and breach media guidelines,” the letter, dated December 1, said.

    “To comply with the EPBC Act, media guidelines, ICIP (Indigenous Cultural Intellectual Property) laws and show respect for Anangu land and culture, we ask that you remove any artwork breaching these conditions and showing Uluru.”

    Why does my feed only appear in German?

    Tatsächlich ist es ein Rätsel …

    err, Rick – you’re not the only one who is righteously pissed off.

    I saw the scam for what it was back in March 2020, thinking what are these monumental f*ckwits going to do next? Go full CCP?

    That was shortly after beholding the imbeciles I worked with crouched around a computer monitor watching Goose Morristeen declare that we would be confined to our dwellings for “two weeks”.

    Here we are nearly three years later and those same monumental f*ckwits are still existing on this planet. Yet to be visited with the mighty cleansing force that is HOP Time™.

    No wonder St Ruth has run out of depends.

    Quite amusing watching them skirt around events in China. Denounce the CCP and you ultimately denounce yourself. They did exactly the same fucking thing.

    China might be a spark for a world wide reset of exactly the right type.

    If they hang Xi, then why the fuck not hang Dan?

    Dinner tonight: Had arranged with the engineering manager to watch together a movie on TV in the public bar (a location to which I rarely venture).
    He opted to not dine. Being slightly peckish I chose to bring along from my fridge a few slices of chilled roast lamb, a small packet of sultanas, & an avocado. All in a rectangular takeaway container, pre-used but carefully washed & repurposed as a standby roast lamb container.
    Drinks: He opted for a can of sarsaparilla, $4, after much consideration I chose a plastic bottle of water for $3
    The sarsaparilla must have hit the spot, as during one of the commercial breaks he ordered a 2nd can.

    He, having class, poured the sarsaparilla over ice in a 15oz glass. I opted to help save the planet by saving on washing up by just swigging water direct from the bottle, taking care to first unscrew the replaceable plastic cap.

    While there are many flavours of soft drink on offer, there is only one flavour of water available.
    This is known as “water” and the $3 price point option was the only water available.
    This did not perturb me any & certainly did not detract from the enjoyable movie experience.

    Jimmy is lawyering up after the Twitter files came out.

    “I will be getting a lawyer. I will be suing the Democratic National Committee, no matter what. Whether I win or lose, I am going to stand up for the rights of every American, not a so-called celebrity, I’m not a celebrity anymore. I’m hardly recognizable anymore because my career has been destroyed by these very people. And I will sue and I’m hoping other people will sue. And if it turns out there are a lot of us on this list where the DNC targeted us, and I will quote the immortal words of Joseph Wells when he attacked Joe McCarthy for the enemy’s list he had, at long last sir, have you no shame? President Biden, all of your Stasi little operatives in the DNC who have targeted American citizens, have you, Mr. President, have all of you at last, no shame?”

    There’s a shot he could win too.
