Westerners need to get used to eating offal again.
It’s a modern (post WWII) thing not eating a lot more of the beast.

All this offal commentary is just tripe from people who haven’t the guts – the intestinal fortitude – to try new things, or rehash old things.

We will again. Can remember mum buying it as a kid because dad’s army JNCO pay barely made ends meet with multiple growing mouths to feed. Lambs liver & kidney was a common dish mum made.

We’ve been spoilt in recent times and IMO western people will turn their nose up at the bugs.

“Westerners need to get used to eating offal again.”

Offal has always been “frugal food” and I love frugal food. I was brought up on frugal food and there was a lot of offal, such things as liver (chicken and calves), tongue, kidneys, chicken feet, stuffed chicken neck. All delicious.

Westerners need to get used to eating offal again.

Why?
It doesn’t keep well, loses all flavour when frozen, and may have dangerous Vitamin A content.
It’s a modern (post WWII) thing not eating a lot more of the beast.

Offal is only 3%, including viscera Fat, of the edible yield from a beef carcase.
Lungs, Hearts, Spleens used to be ground up, cooked, canned and sold as Camp Pie[settle down, SpongeBob and Mr Sulu].

The real downfall was the rise of Airbus and Boeing’s failure to respond. Sitting here in 2023 and blaming management from 1995-2000 is a pathetic cop-out.

Behold Ayers Rock’s replacement (the NT News):

Hopes are high a giant Christian cross atop a mountain 220km west of Alice Springs will deliver a tourism and employment boost to the region.

You still can’t see it from the Alice Springs airport.

The cross, 14 years in the making, towers off Memory Mountain outside the nearby Haasts Bluff (Ikuntji) community.

It is the realisation of photographer Ken Duncan’s dream who has led the project since Elders first suggested the idea in 2009.

Note the capitalisation of ‘Elders’. Like ‘the Pope’.

“For them, they said it was something very important for them, because where this cross is being built, in 1923 four Indigenous Lutheran evangelists came out and spread the gospel in that area and it was quite an amazing experience out there,” he said.

Okay. But, and in a hint as to motivations:

“It was something driven by the Indigenous people, not white missionaries, so there’s a monument at the base of that mountain for those four Indigenous evangelists, and some of the Elders involved are descendants of those evangelists.”

You know where this is going.

There were plans in place to build glamping and camping facilities in the area, to accommodate multi-day trips, he said.

“People will be able to come out and do tours, at the present they’ll be guided, the only way to go up to the cross is to be guided by Aboriginal people,” he said. “And they’ll be able to tell their stories. It’s got a Christian story, and it’s got a dreamtime story.”

Ready?

“And this creates an income stream for these young people.”

Boom. Any tourism is a side hustle from the income streams generated by NT Government funding for said glamping, infrastructure to develop and maintain it along with royalties for the tens of thousands of anticipated tourists travelling to and from Haasts Bluff from Alice over ‘land that was never ceded’.

Exhibit A for this premise is the crocodile-shaped hotel in Jabiru that was handed over to local ‘Elders’ and immediately fell into disrepair, sparked by family-driven disputes to the point where it’s a massive loss. I don’t know whether it’s even open. The Memory Mountain people would be sure to have learned from this, and will demand constant government top-ups as required.

The 20 metre high cross has solar lighting, apparently, and will be switched on at Easter – along with the cash tap for the ‘Elders’.

More garbage.
The DC-8 was a great competitor for the 707. In many ways a better aircraft with more stretch potential. See 70 series.
The 737 nearly got cancelled in the late 1960’s as it was having trouble making headway against the DC-9 which Reg Ansett reckoned was an accountant’s dream.
The DC-10 and L-1011 with 3 engines were able to do trans ocean flights where the A300 was not at the time. Boeing did not have “a near monopoly”.

One observation (from the inside of both companies) is that the rot had set in long before that.

I caught a SwissAir DC10 from NYC to Geneva around 1996 or so. It was in the summer. In the summer of the very next year, a SwissAir DC10 NYC to Geneva crashed with everyone aboard deadsky. It’s likely it was the very same plane. FMD. 

The suspicion as to why it went down was that SwissAir had introduced personal entertainment screens etc. to passenger seats and the wiring caught fire. FMD.

I heard an interesting podcast about the war and Putin today.

The podcast concluded that Putin cannot risk negotiating a settlement until the Wagner Group is decimated on the front lines. The reason is that the head of Wagner could make a play for the top job and remove Putin.

The point is that the war will continue until Putin feels the Wagner group has lost enough men to make it too hard to pose a threat.

The only time the temperature on those decks reaches fifty degrees, is when those lascars take a bribe from the animal liberationists to turn off the ventilation, so they have footage of thirsty sheep.

He may have had the (c) next to his name on the team sheet, but the Peter Garrett impersonator Cheaty McSnivel (overcoming the low bar of Cummins) can only ever be described as a stand-in.

When he was captain it was a mini-Golden Age where a combination of top-order form and a series of destabilised oppositions made him look far better than he was. Indore was the pitch, which backfired on the Indians as well as the GOAT who had two backups, instead of one or none.

Nothing to do with MD, which has become a convenient scape-goat for every cock up since.
Funny thing is, when they really did bet the company on an aircraft design (737 Max), no-one seems to want to own that one.

IndyTeal Monique ‘Put your masks on!’ Ryan in the Hun:

Independent MP Monique Ryan has moved to shut down claims she has aspirations to become the Prime Minister saying it was “a joke”.

Suuure it was.

In an explosive affidavit from her chief of staff Sally Rugg, released on Friday, Ms Rugg recalled a meeting the pair had in November 2022.

“You don’t understand, I need to be the best, this is bigger than Kooyong,” Dr Ryan allegedly told Ms Rugg.

“I want to be the prime minister one day, and I need to know my staff are prepared to work hard for me. If you are not prepared to work as hard as I want, I will need to consider my options.”

Funny stuff. Obviously a pisstake. Everyone clowns around during the process of sacking their staff.

I assume.

She sure is “bigger than Kooyong”. Her large physical girth is equalled by her exaggerated hyperbole.

Episode 1:

1. Do not try and nuzzle me while I am driving;
2. Do NOT whack the gearstick with a paw when nuzzling refused;
3. You can get along famously with other dogs previously unknown to you and in their own homes;
4. It is possible to chew to bits an unchewable dog bed as a contest with the aforementioned other dogs;
5. Being in the back of the ute whilst passing loaded road trains full of stock is extremely exciting; and
6. It is possible to sleep for hours while listening to Cold Chisel and Def Leppard.

What was the show Sancho? There’s a very good book about Jim Jones and Harvey Milk, it’s called “Cult City”, excellent read, and very disturbing.

As for Holmes a Court Jnr, I’ll reserve my words however his late father was a gangster and a crook but the luvvies of the 1980s lurrved Holmes a Court Snr because he and his grotesque wife were lefties and art collectors.

When my no.2 son was 5 he asked when all my junk was going to be his. Now he doesn’t want it. I’m shattered. The good thing is my daughter wants it.

Apparently the best thing to do around here is visit the Pueblos Blancos but in the absence of a motor vehicle not an option for me.
I did catch the bus to El Monesterio de la Rabida which is where Chrisopher Columbus negotiated his deal with the Catholic Monarchs and set off on his journey of discovery.
€3.50 includes an audio guide, don’t forget to return it and retrieve your passport.
1492 was a very busy year for Spanish royalty.
It’s well worth a visit and if you have a car, easy to drive to and get parking. Take a picnic, enjoy the view.
You can also catch a ferry to the Grand Canaries from here, 30 to 36 hours, prices from €120.
Strawberries are the main export of the little town on the other side of Rabida, Palos, I really should buy some.

To get a feel for his audience, the lecturer asks “How many people here believe in ghosts?”

About 90 students raise their hands.

“Well, that’s a good start. Out of those who believe in ghosts, do any of you think you have seen a ghost?”

About 40 students raise their hands.

“That’s really good. I’m really glad you take this seriously. Has anyone here ever talked to a ghost?”

About 15 students raise their hand.

“Has anyone here ever touched a ghost?”

Three students raise their hands.

“That’s fantastic. Now let me ask you one question further… have any of you ever made love to a ghost?”

Way in the back, Ahmed raises his hand.

The professor takes off his glasses and says “Son, all the years I’ve been giving this lecture, no one has ever claimed to have made love to a ghost. You’ve got to come up here and tell us about your experience”.

The Middle Eastern student replied with a nod and a grin and began to make his way up to the podium. When he reached the front of the room, the professor asks “So, Ahmed, tell us what it’s like to have sex with a ghost?” Ahmed replied “Shit, from way back there I thought you said goats”.

Justice in Victoriastan, episode eleventy:

Key points:

Simiona Tuteru was facing charges of breaching national heavy vehicle laws over the crash in 2020 on the Eastern Freeway
His driver Mohinder Singh was jailed for 18 years and six months for ploughing his truck into four police officers
Supreme Court judge Lex Lasry criticised the prosecution for handling the case poorly

Supreme Court Justice Lex Lasry criticised Victoria’s Director of Public Prosecutions on Friday for acting “oppressively and unfairly” in the handling of the case against Simiona Tuteru, 51.

Mr Tuteru, who worked as a manager at transport company Connect Logistics, was facing charges of breaching national heavy vehicle laws over the crash in 2020 on the Eastern Freeway.

One of his drivers, Mohinder Singh, was jailed for 18 years and six months for ploughing his truck into the police officers as they stood in an emergency lane having pulled another driver over.

Singh was severely sleep-deprived and drug-affected on the day of the crash, and police allege that Mr Tuteru should have stopped him from driving.

Justice Lasry said despite two and a half years passing, the case was still not ready for trial, putting responsibility for that on the prosecution.

“To continue with this matter would be an abuse of process,” Justice Lasry said.

He put a stay on the proceedings, saying it was necessary to protect the integrity of the court.

“A stay is a rare and exceptional order to make,” he said.

His crime was annoying Vicpol. So they put him through the wringer for two and a half years, but never came up with a case.

Note that Lasry is a notoriously leftie judge. For him to do that, it must have been way, way out of line. No consequences for the wrongdoers, though.

Salvatore, Understaffed & Overworked Martyr to Govt Covid Stupidity

His crime was annoying Vicpol. So they put him through the wringer for two and a half years, but never came up with a case.

Just chewed through all his savings, & those of his family, in legal fees.
