    Shit Towns of Australia

    TOP 10 DUMBEST REGIONAL FOODS
    Australians are famously adventurous and equally famously feral, so it’s no surprise that they eat some truly disgusting dishes. Here are some of their weirdest, dumbest and rankest regional foods.

    1. Pie floater (Adelaide)—A meat pie dumped upside down in a bowl of pea soup and topped with tomato sauce, the pie floater was almost certainly invented by accident. Why anyone would want to intentionally repeat that culinary disaster is anyone’s guess.

    2. Smiley fritz (Adelaide)—A variation of bung fritz (anus sausage) with marks resembling facial features, slices of smiley fritz are traditionally given to children in South Australian supermarkets so they can bite eye holes and wear them as a mask. Ideal for any budding Ed Gein.

    3. Balfours frog cake (Adelaide)—Sponge, cream and fondant sculpted into the shape of a frog’s head, the frog cake is the perfect dessert for people who want to pretend they’re Ozzy Osbourning an amphibian.

    4. Cheese slaw (Broken Hill)—An unholy melange of cheddar, carrot and emu semen that only the most depraved individuals would claim is food.

    5. Cheese and carrot salad (Port Pirie)—Port Pirie’s shit answer to cheese slaw.

    6. Ratbait (Port Pirie)—Cheese and bacon baked on bread. It’s called ratbait because you’d have to be vermin to eat that shit.

    7. Chiko Roll (nationwide)—Invented in Bendigo and unveiled in Wagga Wagga, the Chiko Roll has spread like nits in Nimbin to become a supposed Australian icon—despite being owned by an American company and being basically the same thing as a Chinese spring roll. ‘Chiko’ is short for ‘chicken’, even though they don’t contain any. A more accurate name would be ‘Cabbage Roll’ or ‘Calorie Tube’.

    8. Dim sim (Melbourne/nationwide)—Originating in Melbourne’s Chinatown but now a takeaway staple across Australia, the giant dumpling known as a dim sim or ‘dimmy’ is great if you’re craving a meal that resembles a boiled ballsack.

    9. Florrie (Horsham)—A flat, crumbed piece of horse steak wrapped around a slice of ham and a bit of cheese, often drowned in gravy to mask the awful taste.

    10. Bin chicken parmi (Sydney)—Sydney put its own twist on an Aussie pub grub classic by substituting chicken for the much cheaper ibis. Consisting of breaded bin chicken breast smothered in tomato sauce and grilled parmesan and served with chips, this local delicacy makes Sydney the ideal place for intrepid tourists to try some disease-riddled tip turkey.

    Ok, Portugal is not on the list this time, but in July will be in Spain. The food had better be good.

    Sometimes the little villages can be very memorable. Our neighbour in the country has (or had) a lovely stone house on the Via de Santiago in a little stone village on a hill not far from Burgosin Spain. Very very charming. We visited it some time ago. He took in travellers/pilgrims on the route and there was a good pub opposite his house. Although it was on the pilgrim foot route, it was accessible by car.

    Never get the Billy book case.

    The one we just tossed out lasted for thirty years, Dot, and a neighbour, seeing us tossing it, has nabbed it for his shed. It’s still perfectly functional.

    One is apparently still sold every five minutes worldwide.

    That’s good enough for me and the three of them together in my study hold all my books.

    McGowan’s worn out.
    A prolapsed arsehole.

    He should be in prison along with a host of other ex Premiers / CHO’s from around the country. Any falling back to the “just following W.H.O guidance” is bullsh*t because the dangers of these jabs was known; Pfizer’s own trials ( they wanted kept secret for 75 years ) which was halted early due to adverse reactions, yet they got the E.U.O and went along with the roll out anyway. The TGA and .Gov just followed whatever the FDA / CDC stipulated and then came along the criminal mandates.

    People should have had a choice coupled with a honest media highlighting the above faults with this these dodgy jabs, but Event 201 was clear in the role M$M was to play and Stokes made sure all his staff towed the line in keeping people in the dark. The same with GP’s etc. DO AS YOU ARE TOLD!

    Stokes should be in cell alongside the prick and released into general prison population come exercise time. The prolapsed bum are fitting for both.

    I doubt the little prick will remain in WA unless he can afford his own security detail. I reckon he’ll flee.

    It still amazes me a class action lawsuit is not in the works … though, having said that, any lawyers considering it would be intimidated at the TPTB behind it all.

    It’s a valid point, 2A, but we can only hope the Voice fails and it’s unborn sister self aborts.

    Dunno – there could be a certain amount of schadenfreude if it does get up – G.S.T raised to 15% to pay “compensation” and “reparations” in perpetuity, and the woke having their houses claimed in the name of “sacred sites.”

    Closing the Gap news (the NT News):

    A 26-year-old man will face court for an aggravated assault on a child in Tennant Creek at the weekend. Police said the man was intoxicated when he assaulted the child with a blunt weapon.

    The child suffered serious injuries and was transported by Royal Flying Doctor Service to the Adelaide Women’s and Children’s Hospital. The man has been charged with cause serious harm and was remanded to appear in Alice Springs court on Tuesday.

    Once again, if this had occurred in any of the bigger cities it would be front page, top of the fold for a week. The child suffered injuries so severe that the medics immediately bypassed Alice Springs Hospital, the home of blunt force trauma injuries.

    Lidia would have prevented this. Oh wait.

    I find it hilarious that those (like the Thought Leader) approve of anyone who wants the title of engineer to be called such, but the twit (along with a few others) don’t seem to be aware that you have to be licensed to carry the title of “plumber” or “electrician,” including all trades. Anyone who claims such a title could be fined and charged with fraud. However, according to this genius and others like him, it’s credentialism to recognize and respect qualified engineers. Tradies requiring lisences to operate – not so much. FMD.

    Then there’s Hallward. Every couple of weeks or so, the Aviator reminds us that he qualified in STEM, albeit on the bumpkin side of STEM, which (he said) was in the area of weather divining. In the 1970s, weather science was way at the rear of the science department—possibly the back shed. But that aside, he claims that anyone should be able to refer to themselves as engineers. So qualifying in weather science was fine, but in engineering, not so hot.

    Funny story about Indigenous Heritage inspectors as told to me by a local from the area today.
    Bridge builders were putting new wings on a bridge that had suffered flood damage. Work started with the excavator and a couple of big boulders were dug out that they put to one side. The local shire had to get the Indig crew in to assess the works but they were a few days late getting there. There was some heavy rain in between times and the formerly metre deep boulders were washed clean by the time the spirit diviners arrived.
    The boys stopped work and watched the magic unfold. One of the pale tribe went up to the crew and said “those stones there are sacred and were part of our men’s rituals”
    General laughter as the excavator driver said “Mate, I pulled them out with the bucket a few days ago. Your ancestors must have been rabbits.”

    The life of the indigenous hunter-gatherers in pre-British Australia is stuff that modern dreams are made of. Their sophisticated traditional understanding and management of resources sustained a society that was largely in sync with the earth, sea and seasons, collecting what was needed and respecting the privilege.

    More malarkey from the “West Australian.” No mention of infanticide, cannibalism, inter-tribal warfare, savage and brutal tribal punishments. Comments not allowed.

    And the hunger. Never forget the sheer biting hunger of being two days from disaster all the time and worse in times of drought, some of which was due to their long-term fire razing of the land in order to provide open hunting areas. No wonder they flocked to the sources of ready-to-eat foods on the missions and stations. They were a long long way from the Neolithic that engulfed the rest of the world and set human beings on the path to food security.

    Anywhere, hunger comes first in the scale of human needs to be satisfied.

    Sancho, life on corporate boards may not be much like Succession (except when it sometimes is, btw, from some stories Hairy tells me, he’s interacted with plenty and been on a few), but by jeez that show is still so very good. We’re watching the last episode tonight and still wondering how it will all pan out as the human drama interacts with the stage sets of high flying life, its deals and its bad turns as the kids fight for their place under the inherited sun of Rogan’s fame in a world gone ESG. Very PwC. What will the new POTUS do about regulation when sneaky information is a quality resource?

    Woof woof, says the little twerp Hugo, with a delivery that will go down in history as one of the best.

    There’s not a scrap of wasted dialogue in Succession, and the second run on each episode is always worthwhile to tease out that and to admire again the remarkable camera work which roves like eye of God honing in on the emotional fallout.

    General laughter as the excavator driver said “Mate, I pulled them out with the bucket a few days ago. Your ancestors must have been rabbits.”

    In the 1980’s , a journalist in the Northern Territory was researching a story into the issue of sacred sites.

    He divided a contingent of the local Aborigines into three groups, and approached the first.

    “You say this site is sacred to you. Why is that?”

    “It’s where the old men, used to initiate the young boys, into the tribal lore.”

    He approached the second group, and asked the same question.

    “It’s sacred to Mattaranka, the giant crocodile.”

    He approached the third group, and asked the same question.

    “Dunno, but if you whitefella’s are mug enough to believe it, you’ll believe anything.”

    The idea of the sky falling in, as in Chicken Little, stems from the old Nordic myth of the four dwarves who each hold up an edge of it. They let go when the time of Ragnarok, the death of the gods, arrives.

    As is often noted, they simply could not produce such a movie today. All the characters played up, all the plays on words, are now ‘problematic’ at best, or violence against vulnerable groups at worst.

    But Hollywood’s cachet is waning and the dystopia of progressive strongholds becoming too glaring to ignore.

    A generation growing up seeing Hollywood as a dull version of Tokyo and Souel, and the New York intellectual dandies as some modern day Versailles surrounded by (and ostentatiously aloof from) a degraded populace, will eventually rediscover past films, delighting in smashing through the neurotic and ideological taboos of their parents to hear such things as a people using the word ‘nigger’ as part of a joke.

    I am hoping that generation has already been born.

    Very unlikely, principally because someone who posts comments that he’s seen as a God oracle and that people shit themselves when he walks into a room, self describes as the fastest lip on a construction site, wouldn’t be the sort of critter to hide “its” accomplishments.

    Let’s get to a more serious discussion.
    You once explained that the advisory role of the Voice from the rear end ( please use nicer wording than arse as it’s just not lawyerly) would be problematic as it could have very serious legal implications from court decision.

    How do you reach these conclusions now. Explain.

    TV rights for horse-racing are being decided in the next few months. The Seven Network is the obvious leader in the field as the year-round broadcaster in the current rights agreement.

    But the racing industry is determined to extract maximum value, so Nein and Paramount (the corporate front for the US CBS network via the Ten Network) are in the bidding.

    I hope Seven wins because its coverage of the industry has been first-class, promoting chickie babes as commentators, jockeys and lovers of horsies.

    DEFENCE
    British Army has more big guns than heavy artillery
    George Grylls, Defence Correspondent
    Monday May 29 2023, 12.01am BST, The Times
    Armed Forces
    JAMES MANNING/PA
    Share

    The British Army has more high-ranking officers than heavy artillery, according to official MoD figures.

    There were 245 people serving in the army, navy and air force holding the rank equivalent to a one-star general or above at the end of 2021, a Freedom of Information request from The Times has found.

    In the army, there were 123 high-ranking officers compared with 89 AS-90 self-propelled artillery guns.

    In the RAF there were 56 one-star officers compared with 26 F-35 Lightning jets, while there were 66 people in the navy who held the rank of commodore or above compared with 20 principal surface ships. The figures do not include high-ranking officers who work at other military bodies such the MoD, Nato, Permanent Joint Headquarters or Defence Equipment & Support.

    Nicholas Drummond, a defence analyst in land warfare, said that the army retained so many senior officers because it still had the structure of a much larger organisation, even though troop numbers have been cut to less than 76,000. He said: “The army constantly believes it is going to be regrown to a previous level and that’s never going to happen now.”

    However he said that the navy and air force had a better balance of senior officers. “The navy and the air force tend to need the senior people because they have technical expertise,” he said.

    A Ministry of Defence spokesman said: “It is misleading to compare the number of people in a certain military rank with pieces of military equipment.

    “Defence requires senior ranks to carry out both operational and non-operational roles and our structure reflects the complexity of the roles we perform.”

    1967 referendum ‘gave us no rights’: Thorpe
    Tricia Rivera
    Tricia Rivera

    Independent senator Lidia Thorpe says the 1967 referendum did not give Indigenous people rights and that the voice “is nothing to be scared of and nothing to be excited by”.

    “[The 1967 referendum] gave us no rights. It gave the parliament the power to make decisions for us as sovereign people of these lands,” she told ABC Melbourne radio.

    “I’m questioning what the impacts of that have been for our people.”

    Senator Thorpe said she wasn’t advocating for people to vote no and that the grassroots Indigenous movement have been unable to be part of the solution.

    “I’m not saying to vote ‘no’, either. My position is to educate the people and know that the ‘yes’ campaign is not all cracked up to be,” she said.

    “They’ve never allowed the grassroots black movement to come to the table, and they’ve made us out to be troublemakers and not part of the solution when we want to be part of the solution. We’ve got good ideas.”

    She said thousands of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people for a no campaign have not benefited from a platform like the ‘racist’ no camp has.

    “And they don’t get the platform that the ‘yes’ campaign have been given they’ve got the government support, and they’ve now got every major league, and all of the people who are feeling fuzzy and heart-warmed by what the Uluru Statement says.”

    “Sovereign people of these lands?” My hairy aunt!

    I told people here. Quite openly. The number was given.

    If you can drag yourself away from the chemtrails’ grip (they made you fat, by the way, it wasn’t really your fault) you can go back and have a look.

    Alternatively, you can ask the 6PR reception staff. Lovely people. All you have to do is say the code word.

    ADF warns troops drinking alcohol on deployment won’t be tolerated

    Defence has issued a new directive warning alcohol consumption will not be tolerated on operations or exercises, after drinking by troops in Afghanistan was linked to cultural failings that allowed war crimes to be committed and covered up.

    The directive says deployed ADF personnel are banned from drinking alcohol, reiterating previous advice that was flouted by the nation’s most elite troops, with the tacit approval of commanders, during Australia’s longest war.

    Approval may be provided for personnel on “non-warlike ­operations” to consume a maximum of two alcoholic beverages each on national holidays such as Australia Day, Anzac Day and Christmas Day, but only if a risk assessment is submitted 21 days prior to the event.

    The notice was issued in ­response to the Brereton war crimes report, which found widespread drinking by Special Air Service personnel in Afghanistan was evidence of lax standards within the regiment, whose members were accused of 39 murders.

    The Chief of Joint Operations’ directive, obtained under Freedom of Information laws, warns consumption of alcohol on “warlike operations” will not be approved except in the case of communal wine used for religious services.

    Operational commanders are directed to enforce the rules through random and targeted breath testing.

    “A member who fails to maintain a zero (blood alcohol count) through random testing will have administrative action commenced against them resulting in potential removal from the operation, exercise or activity,” the directive says.

    It says ADF members who ­refuse to undergo alcohol testing must be “removed from the workplace immediately and be banned from access to weapons and ammunition, and access to vehicles”.

    The directive comes ahead of a decision later this week on a defamation case brought by Australia’s most decorated soldier, Ben Roberts-Smith, against Nine newspapers, over reports accusing him of war crimes.

    In a separate process, the Chief of the Defence Force Angus Campbell is pushing to strip honours and awards from officers who held command positions in Afghanistan when war crimes were alleged to have taken place.

    Independent senator Jacqui Lambie is demanding General Campbell – who led Australian forces in Afghanistan in 2011 – “lead by example and hand back his own medals”.

    Justice Paul Brereton’s November 2020 report for the Inspector General of the Australian Defence Force revealed the existence of a pub at the SAS base in Afghanistan, dubbed “The Fat Lady’s Arms”.

    Photos show drunken dress-up parties at the venue, and soldiers drinking there from a prosthetic leg souvenired from a dead Afghan. While alcohol was supposed to be banned, one soldier told Justice Brereton the venue was a place “where we can do certain stuff but we’re not going to get caught and it’s not going to be regarded as misconduct because that’s who we are and that’s what we do”.

    “While alcohol on deployments was linked to ‘risky or unacceptable behaviours’, it is ‘difficult to conclude that almost everyone in the (Special Operations Command) chain of command was not aware of this’,” Justice Brereton’s report said.

    He said the pub’s existence was the result of “organisational blindness”, and showed “ethical leadership was compromised”.

    A former 2nd Commando Regiment member told The Australian he and fellow soldiers were “incensed” at the level of drinking and partying by SAS counterparts.

    “We’d be out there fighting on week-long patrols, and we’d get back with just enough time to clean our gear before going out again,” the commando said.

    “Meanwhile, these guys were having dress-up parties. It was the worst-kept secret, but I don‘t think anyone really realised the full extent of it.”

    General Campbell, who was based in the United Arab Emirates in 2011 but visited Afghanistan 34 times that year, told a Senate estimates hearing in 2021 he had no idea SAS personnel had an on-base pub.

    SAS Association national president Martin Hamilton-Smith said the planned administrative action should be shelved until criminal charges were dealt with. “In our opinion this CDF has mishandled the yet-to-be-proven war crime allegations from the outset,” Mr Hamilton-Smith said.

    They probably processed a lot of grief there. They – and we as a society are lucky they could literally drug and numb themselves to some of this, talk it over, process it and have some joy in a grim theatre of war.

    The alternative is that they come back with mental issues, hurt themselves and others, have difficulty transitioning to civilian life, and endlessly talk grave matters over with fat privileged white women, who in contrast to the SAS operators, will only ever be endangered by half-price Mars bars.

    Mc Gowan would be DFRDB unless he changed over to MSBS. The fact he rolled straight into having his snout in the trough as soon as he was on the way out of the RAN that adds to whatever Parliamentary scheme he qualifies for.

    Let’s get to a more serious discussion.
    You once explained that the advisory role of the Voice from the rear end ( please use nicer wording than arse as it’s just not lawyerly) would be problematic as it could have very serious legal implications from court decision.

    Alright, you’re on the dime. I presume you read the links to the S-G’s Opinion and the Uluru Statement. This is the wording of the screech:

    In recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Peoples of Australia: (i) there shall be a body, to be called the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice; (ii) the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice may make representations to the Parliament and the Executive Government of the Commonwealth on matters relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; (iii) the Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have power to make laws with respect to matters relating to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice, including its composition, functions, powers and procedures.

    Straight away (iii) is superfluous because the 1967 referendum gave that power to the Feds when S.51 xxvi was amended. But that’s in a sane world.

    The S-G reduced the screech wording to 2 questions with question 2 applying to (iii). He says:

    Question (2): Would the power to legislate “with respect to matters relating to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice” in proposed s 129(iii) of the Constitution empower the Parliament to specify whether, and if so, how, Executive Government decision-makers are legally required to consider relevant representations of the Voice? Answer (2): Yes.

    This is cute because he’s saying the executive, ie government, must consider screech demands if the parliament makes a law saying it must. Since the government runs the parliament this is like saying you must do what you are told to do. He then goes on at paragraphs 28-30 to advise that the laws would be substantial and that no express or implied constitutional limitation will exist to them.

    Since Uluru states the 3rd nations never gave up any of the land and have equal sovereignty, land rights would progress from the Mabo definition to all land including your extensive real estate holdings. Expect a letter of demand from your local land council.

    And I was only reading on the weekend that, thanks to those evil ‘big’ pharmaceutical companies, the survival rate for childhood cancer has now risen to over 80%.

    The bush telegraph says Mark McGowan resigned, to be clear of the fiasco that the Voice referendum will bring.

    It’s the Aboriginal Heritage Act, Zulu. July 1. Once the people- it’s obvious that our press is asleep at the wheel and/or gaslighting us with the mogadon of “indigenous” empowerment- realise that MacGowan has used the WA Corporation to hand every farming property title in WA over to the First Nationses gauletiers, there’ll be eggs aimed at him everywhere outside the Smashed Avo suburbs.

    I was out for a walk the other day and I saw a host of Bible Tree Rocks arranged in letters that said ‘6PR. All rock, all day’.

    On a more serious note:
