• Mater’s Musings #2: Why is it so?

    In line with the graph above, my figures say that the proportion of Covid cases admitted to ICUs halved between the 1st and 2nd ‘waves’. Vaccination? Nah, not even Trump worked that fast. Overwhelmed? Hardly! Guesses as to why, are now being collated. I’m open to all suggestions (except those involving nanobots).

  • Guest Post: A Bunyip Epistle

    This wonderful piece was sent to me earlier this evening and I, unfortunately, being out, missed it until now. Although it may be too late to beat that pot this evening, please give it a good going over tomorrow at 9pm, and then on until the lockdowns finish. Professor Bunyip writes: Bunyips as a broad…

  • Mater’s Musings #1: Why the difference in approach?

    This is a guest post by Mater, reposted with permission. When you hear the Premiers indicate that we will remain under house arrest until we have zero cases and no community transmission, please keep this in mind.

Also, can people let me know if they like or dislike the nested comment format. I think it saves having to quote replies to existing comments as you…

  • The shamelessness of Branch Covidian

    The drive to vaccinate by hook or by crook the entire country is entering a frenzied stage in Australia. Not only is the establishment of a second class citizenry being discussed in media for the unvaccinated without blushing, but the deaths of individuals are now cunningly exploited (h/t: C.L.) to try and install fear in…

  • Roosh interviews Milo

    A fascinating conversation between two men on different though similar religious journeys. Roosh strikes me as the more sober of the two, but I don’t think for one minute that Milo is insincere or trolling in his attempt to reject his past sins and follow the True, Good, and Beautiful. The same is true of…

  2. Please ignore the thugs who demand “why?” after your posts. I hope my “Why?” was obviously enough a joke.
