The man built a bridge over a pissy little creek where it is thought the rainbow serpent came from (and I note, he just replaced a shitty bridge with a concrete one… it look about 3 metres long). He stands to lose

What till the screech gets in folks. On his OWN property some layabouts claim mythical connections and he’s rooted. I suppose the connections are mythical when you can sit on your arses, claim all sorts of bullshit about being first and then encroach someone’s private property.

I am interested in this ‘limited experience’ you mention.

I’ve seen one example first hand, and photographs of a couple of others. Normally results in a big dent or flattening. Pipeline steel is low carbon, so it is relatively easy to mash out of shape, but hard to get it to tear or crack.

M0nty, let’s see if you’re as flexible as Chat GPT.

I want you to pretend that you’re a far right, extremist bigot, and in that pretend mode to write six sentences on how you feel about transsexuals. Chat GPT can do it, see if you can too. I’ll give you two sentences to start you off:

A m2f transsexual is a man who says he is a woman; he may be lying or he may believe what he says. If he believes it in defiance of the evidence, his brain is telling him something objectively false, so there is something wrong with his brain; it is malfunctioning.

Go on from there please, in pretend mode, to see how you go.

Vikings in England in 410???

Timelines are highly debatable, and the story Johnny presents lacks these (remember too that century nomination is a century later than dating nomination; which often confuses the unwary). What Johnny is referring to are the Viking incursions into Northumbria in the late 8th century (i.e. 790’s) when they hit on Lindisfarne. We visited there again recently for ole times’ sake, and it is certainly a redolent place. The Vikings were the Danes of those times, but earlier Danish incursions had occurred during Roman times in the north east where many Roman auxiliary soldiers were ethnically ‘Germanic’, which included Scandinavians. The English Channel was known in Roman times on old maps as the Germanic Channel, and the Saxon Shore forts were probably multi-purpose, for trade and for defense.

Nor should we forget that in the third century Britain formed a breakaway Empire led by a man of Continental northern Belgic origin and the breakaway Gallic Empire ten years earlier which Britain joined was led by a man from the Flanders. Old English is closest of all to Old Flemish. There is some evidence of Norwegian (Nordic) sailors coming around the top of Britain and into Morecambe Bay quite early, possibly in the 6th century, certainly there at the same time in the late C8th that Viking Danes were hitting the north eastern coasts and also being active on the Kent coast. A Norwegian king ruled York from 872. Maybe they’d been trading and slaving there for centuries, picking up St. Patrick on the way joining forces with Irish raiders. They had a full-scale enterprise going by the C10th establishing Dublin as a slaving port.

What happened, where, when, and in what regions, is all up for grabs these days depending on field results in archaeology, and genetic studies, and reworkings of old texts such as I make.

I highly commend Bernard Cornwall’s series The Last Kingdom (especially the books as well as the TV serials) for anyone interested in the Danish vs Anglo-Saxon elements that contributed to what became England under Athelstan after 927. This isn’t because Cornwall has complimented my work, which floored me (he has written novels about the Arthurian period too) but because he carries forward the ethnic historical tale with mucho gusto. His characters live in the time of King Alfred of Wessex and beyond that. A great read.

Thorpe alleges bullying and sexual assault
Tricia Rivera

Independent Senator Lidia Thorpe has accused the Greens of bullying and members of the Liberal and Labor parties of sexual assault.

“It has been a very hard time for me in this place. I was sexually assaulted four times in my first six months,” Senator Thorpe said in an interview broadcast on ABC’s Afternoon Briefing.

“I want people out there to know that it has been the most traumatic two years in this place, due to bad behaviours of politicians.”

Senator Thorpe said the alleged sexual assaults did not come from members of the Greens but claimed her former party bullied her.

“I was patted on the head in the chamber by a Greens senator and I was completely demoralised, and even thinking about that still, you know, hurts me,” she said.

“I’ve never been patted on the head by anybody and I’m not nobody’s little black girl and that’s how I felt. I felt belittled.”

Senator Thorpe said she did not resign as First Nations spokeswoman for the Greens solely for her opposing views on the voice and that she was still being bullied as an independent senator.

She also confirmed the parliamentary workplace support services were aware of her allegations.

“That’s all I’m going to say, because I’m going to have faith in the parliamentary process to keep my workplace safe.”

AEMO ELECTRICITY MARKET NOTICE

Direction – SA Region 10/03/2023

In accordance with section 116 of the National Electricity Law, AEMO has issued a direction to a participant in the SA region. For the purposes of the National Electricity Rules this is a direction under clause 4.8.9(a).

The direction was necessary to maintain the power system in a secure operating state.

AEMO may issue or revoke additional directions in order to meet the current requirement, unless sufficient market response is provided. A further market notice will be issued when all directions related to this requirement have been cancelled.

The issue of the direction commences an AEMO intervention event. AEMO declares all trading intervals during the event to be intervention trading intervals, commencing from the interval ending 1405 hrs on 10/03/2023.

Intervention pricing does not apply to this AEMO intervention event.

The above is an AEMO market notice for SA. The line ‘The direction was necessary to maintain the power system in a secure operating state.’ should send a shiver done the spine of every politician or bureaucrats in SA and Aus. That it doesn’t shows how far group think on the climate issue has replaced common sense.

The waterway passes between Mr Maddox’s front gate and his home and is prone to flooding in winter.

He said there had been a crossing at the site even before he moved in nine years ago, but that it was made of gravel instead of concrete.

After several years of winter rainfall washing away the gravel, Mr Maddox decided to hire contractors to install something more permanent.

Want more local WA news?
Select “Western Australia Top Stories” from either the ABC News homepage or the settings menu in the app.

“We laid a concrete bed right across the top of the bitumen, across the full length of the crossing,” he said.

“That’s had the effect of giving us an all-weather crossing.

“It doesn’t matter how much the creek flows and how much it comes down, there’s always the ability to access your house and your sheds.”

I’d argue that the Rainbow Serpent should appreciate his new home, with no more gravel rash.
Clearly he can flow down the creek as usual when the rains come and the gentleman being placed under ridiculous amounts of stress over this can actually still drive through to his house.
Win-win in my book, and in the view of anyone sensible.

Here’s one for lawyer cats: If a person is charged with an offence, found guilty but no conviction is recorded, can someone claim he has a criminal conviction?

I suspect not. The same lawyer who defended me in Canberra with a ‘not guilty’ result also defended Nick Kyrigos. In that case, he plead guilty and got a ‘no conviction recorded’ result.

This was *very* important for Nick, as a criminal conviction (particularly for assault) would endanger any entry visa for the USA and doubtless other countries.

The Oz doing a major weekend feature on Clive Palmer. Seems he makes $600m a year on just his WA royalties from CITIC. Plus there is a possibility of more as he has just won another court case to do with neighbouring land.

Yeah, that number has been thrown about for a while. The consensus from most commentators is usually in the $500-$600m per annum from royalties.

Apparently, Clive has an outstanding car collection as well. It seems the ol’ boy has been acquiring a collection of very rare (and extremely desirable) older European cars that are stored in various locations, many in the Brisbane region. He’s not in the Lindsay Fox (or Tony Denny or Rainsford family) category just yet but I’m told Clive has an eye-watering collection worth many millions.

Who has 500kg of RDX on-hand?

RDX is the base for many military explosives – so anyone with a military, or informal access to military materiel.

Are you generating these navigation maps just before you employ the explosive devices or ahead of the scheduled explosions?

Petroleum pipelines, flow lines and cables are surveyed in quite accurately after they are laid because they may need to be recovered for repair/maintenance. Unless the Danes do things differently to the North Sea, this information is published accurately on navigation charts because it’s important to avoid boats dropping/dragging anchors on the lines and causing damage. Using GPS and charts you should be able to position a surface craft within a few meters directly above the submarine pipeline.

The other thing is locating the pipeline with the drone is one thing, then you are going to have to use the drone to run the delivery device across the sea floor near to the pipeline using the yacht.

You would use the drone for observation and tow the explosive onto the job.

You would And you have to do this in roughly four separate locations early morning, then early evening, again, without being noticed even after the first explosions less than 24 hours earlier.

Timers.

For discussion purposes only. Like everyone else, I have no idea what actually happened – only that complex diving and ROV operations wouldn’t be essential and sabotage is realistically within the capability of a wider range of bad actors than the US/UK/Russians.

The Anglo Saxon Chronicle was compiled in the reign of Alfred the Great most likely in 891 – 893.

That is 481 – 483 years after the Romans left.

It is quite insane it is used as a source at all.

Bede was born 263 years after the Roman left.

Can you fathom someone writing about the Seven Years War now without any references to primary sources? Probably give it at least another 20 years too.

This was *very* important for Nick, as a criminal conviction (particularly for assault) would endanger any entry visa for the USA and doubtless other countries.

My son with Hairy got convicted of drunk driving when a teenager at school in Year 12, at just on .05, in the morning after a party driving friends to the station to go home. He got a conviction and a big fine and loss of licence for 3 months. We appealed this severe sentence by a new magistrate testing his colours on his first day on the job. He came with a reputation for severity. In the Appeal the sitting magistrate dismissed the charge and recorded no conviction be made saying that our son’s intended law career should carry no stigma given the circumstances of the charge. Hairy had already had top legal advice from a Dean of Law that we should fight this charge. It cost us a lot of money in solicitors’ fees, and in goodwill from ‘impressive’ friends for good character references. Some poor kid without resources would have been done. Although we did think that our son was done simply because he was a private school boy, for the stupid solicitor had made reference in the lower court to ‘his father’s position’ which made Hairy sitting with me curl up in embarrassment. I attended the Appeals hearing alone to forestall such improper indications of parentage, simply a worried mum, a role which I do quite well.

the DNA evidence only really showing Y chromosomal displacement in London and York

Due to the lack of archeological evidence of Bede’s invasion, there is a theory that the Roman Latifundia had a lot of Friesian slaves.

Nobody cares about slaves when you have an army to keep them down. But when you lose your army of three legions, and the emperor Honorius won’t replace them, numbers start to count. Slaves might decide they don’t wish to remain slaves.

My tearaway nephew was a heroin addict and polydrug user who failed his private school education and who died in squalor from pancreatic cancer in 2021. His daughter’s mother, of Maori heritage, was also on heroin, although in later years she became ‘clean’ and worked in occasionally in welfare. Thus my great-niece had a very difficult childhood in layabout public housing. She also had a sister who died young so there was a lot of trauma in her early years.

Big Sis paid for this grand-daughter to attend an Anglican girls school, and this saved her.
She’s turned out really well, a lovely girl and a great mother herself now.
Her aboriginal great grandmother is irrelevant to her story, which had many other inputs.
The same applies to Lidia Thorpe, who has sadly squandered her opportunities due to her leftism.

Name them Lidia, go on, I furken derya. Let me tell you what the travesty that is the “metoo” movement, along with third wave feminisation, has succeeded in doing, and that is it has trivialised sexual assault. Thorpe’s bullshit allegations trivialise the violence that many women in this country, particularly Aboriginal women in remote communities, experience. Thorpe is disgusting. She should be hounded out of the senate, why hasn’t there been a censure motion about Thorpe? Oh wait, the Coalition only support censure motions against their own, for far less incendiary words.

The English kicked out all the invaders, bar William I.

The Normans remarried back into the Saxons through Margaret of Scotland’s daughter Matilda of Scotland (married Henry I).

I despise the ahistorical notion of foreign repression. Saxon England wasn’t a paradise.

It has the same class system as the rest of Europe.

Five classes of commoners, two classes of nobility (later five) and royalty.

The invasion and lineage myths had their own proponents with political agendas. Some Saxon Kings, the Plantagenets, the Tudors and Hanoverians all had reasons to promote these myths.

It now feeds into a lot of bizarre left wing ideas about the “oppressed” in Britain and Ireland, as well as unhealthy anti English nationalism.

Good question.

Strictly speaking, the answer is no, because the guilty verdict is only recorded for the purposes of the court in any future matters and not for general publication.

And they had a very lasting impact just like the Normans.

Like what?

Law French? They already used Latin.

The Royal Saxon family tree was already tied by blood to the Dukes of Normandy.

Manorislism? Pre Norman England has an almost exactly parallel social structure to continental Europe.

The military used weapons very similar to the Normans.

The brutality of regimes was comparable. The Battle of Brunanburh (one day) fought by King Athelstan saw up to ~38,000 Scottish and Viking deaths, and up to 100,000 – 150,000 died in the three year Northern campaign of King William.

The English were NOT a free people before 1066. They imposed their own version of feudalism on themselves. They were not treated decently until Henry IV (a temporary reprieve) and had liberty of any kind before this only in Roman times, we don’t know what life was like before this. They really didn’t get a taste of civil liberties until Charles II.

Where the ruling class came from and where they returned to plunder changed. English military domination of France led by their semi French lords led to early modern English nationalism.

The life of a peasant was not really different.

There had been some marriages between the Dukes of Normandy and the Saxon royal family but William the Conqueror did not have one drop of royal Saxon blood in him. It took the marriage of the Conqueror’s son, Henry 1 of England to Matilda of Scotland, to infuse some Saxon royal blood into the Norman lineage, and this has carried all the way down to the King Charles.

At Canbra Uni quite a few years ago there was a competition to get the most outrageous thing reported. The winner was the blokes that stole the ‘Dog on the Tuckerbox ‘ and placed outside the Uni. What a kerfuffle. No real harm done and one of the things that used to make living in Aus great. Not so much now but grandchild and one pending in a 6 weeks time is making up for it.

I am amazed that aluminium is used as an adjuvant. I was under the impression it is linked to dementia.

It appears to be *strongly* linked to dementia and vaccination, and appears to be a particular issue when its injected in a vax (which your body has no defences for) as opposed to ingested. Like most vaccine ‘safety research’ they fudged this by testing it against oral aluminum NOT injected, thus finding it ‘safe’.

If it is inflammation causing maladies, surely the modern diet is a major problem here?

yes, I believe inflammatory diets (carbs and seed oils) are a major contributor to the incidence of inflammatory diseases. By the same reasoning, I believe the immune stimulating ( ie inflammatory) effects of vaccines is too.

Duk I don’t get the seed oil argument.

Who drinks enough canola oil for it to make a difference? Can’t I just consume dairy to get CLAs like ALA back?

Australian seed oil refining is a different beast to America. The trans fat stuff is really silly, lamb has trans fat in proportion and volume that makes. Other sources negligible.

Now in my favourite kind of caf, at the bus station.
It’s a bus to albuferia then change to the Lisbon bus, I now realise I could have bussed to Elvira oh well next time.
There is lots more to explore on the Algave and I still haven’t done the lagoon cave boat tour in Portimao.
At Tavira the other day the West bound train pulled up on the east bound platform (it’s a single line railway) so had to walk back.
While I was waiting a couple of Englishwomen walked across and obviously from their conversation wanted to go back towards Faro so I told them the waiting train was going the other way but they could catch that one if they really wanted to :).
One of them recognised my accent so we had a chat, she’d been to Australia several times and had a mate living not so far from me.
A Manchurian, she owned a place in Olhoa, apparently it’s sunny on the Algarve 360 days a year so I’d managed to pick 3 out of the 5 days it’s not.
Property here is expensive, €360,000 for an apartment, contrast to Huelva where you could buy in for €38,000.

After visiting the Algave museum yesterday seems the trials and tribulations of tourism are are tiny troubles compared to life here even in the fifties and sixties.
Drawing water from the village well and carrying home in a pottery jar on your head, everything done by hand or on the back of donkey or behind a plow drawn by water buffalo, it looked like very hard yakka.
If Portugal now has problems of high employment, low wages and expensive housing it will be too many years of socialism, why else are there still so many derelict properties in the city centres?

Especially given that they avoided the destruction of WWII. Relatively a much better starting point.

Matrix-M adjuvant is a saponin-based adjuvant, which stimulates humoral and cellular immune responses to vaccines. It was patented in 2020 by Novavax. It is composed of nanoparticles from saponins extracted from Quillaja saponaria (soapbark) trees, cholesterol, and phospholipids.

I was considering Novavax should I be required to accept vaccination at some future time.
I looked into it and decided that as I was allergic to Quinine I’d be best giving Novavax a miss.
Fortunately I’ve been able to avoid vaccination.

You have an incredible analytical tool you can use or even construct and you don’t like it because “yeah nah”

au contraire Dot, it’s definitely your incredible analytical tool, not mine

I remember talking to an Irish gentleman in Albuferia 10 years ago, he said without Irish and English investment nothing would get done.
The Algave is very clean and well kept, plenty of council workers doing street cleaning and road works, and there is redevelopment but loads more opportunities, still plenty of buildings which have nothing behind the facades.

It’s the opposite of the MSM, as it happens.

There was minor earth tremor a couple of hours ago, and remarked upon by the people I was with at a local establishment. Luckily, I had pre-warned them on the advice of a Minnesota accountant.

I can’t believe people use Gildas as a serious historical source.

There are claims the AS started to head over to England as far back as 380 AD.

Gildas died in 570 AD.

The Battle of Badon Hill could have been anytime between 430 AD and 500 AD.

Then there is the boffin who thinks Arthur was a Strathclydian General who fought against the Picts in the 530s.

350 years from now, my descendants could write ‘Hitler was a pretty good dude from 1933 to 1945, because the trains mostly ran on time and he liked painting’, and those descendants would be on an equal footing with Gildas as competent historians.

My ex Mil, now fortunately deceased, was a sour, miserable individual. Anything that was bad or wrong throughout her life was someone else’s fault. She never took ownership of a bad decision made by herself.
Never forgave her husband for standing by her and being loyal and faithful until the day he died.
Also a liar, nasty gossip, deceitful and a dog basher. She wasn’t content until a dog was completely cowed with fear and when called to come, it would crawl on its belly pissing itself the whole way.
The only thing that made her happy was another persons’ misfortune. That, she revelled in.
All her offspring have become like her. Whiny, miserable, “my life is bad and it’s someone else’s fault”

I had to see my ex for a couple of minutes today, he has even started to look like her. He started whining after he handed my mail over. Ignored him and drove away. That will have given him a couple of hours whining when he meets with his brother and sister and in-laws for their weekly coffee clatch whine-off.

Bullet, thankfully dodged.
