Fuck around and find out that stocking shelves for a one day event with cheap plastic crap that isn’t selling well is a bad idea?

This article could have had a number of different headlines, like:

“It’s Time to End Magical Thinking That Turning a Blind Eye to a Psychopath will Make Them See the Error of Their Ways”

Or maybe:

“We Made Fun of Communism for Years, but Those Cheeky Fucker Are A Bit Tougher Than We Thought, and I’m Bored Now”.

For fucks sake we tried ignoring the travesty of Russia annexing a chunk of Europe in 2014. Ignored Putins goons shooting passenger planes out of the sky. And we’re expected to believe This Time it Will Turn Out Different.

Fucking muppets.

Great and all, but this is a literal press release. It could be PR spruiking, it could be pump’n’dump play, it could be friggin genuinely great. No way to know from a press release.

This is one area where Apple has it pretty right. A Mac will do somethings when ‘asleep’ like download emails and texts. It also can broadcast its location if the ‘Find Me’ function is on. If it’s plugged into power then backups will also run, and background app updates will happen. It does this in a low power mode, so it won’t get hot enough to need fans. It’s worked flawlessly for 20 years. Meanwhile all our PCs are set to ‘never sleep’ and just get shutdown when not in use. I never trust a PC laptop to wake successfully from sleep just by closing the lid.

Corned beef is pretty good value. Cook low for about 6-7 hours with onion, carrot, celery and pepper. Colesworth also sell ‘gravy beef’ and ‘chuck beef’. These are usually cheaper and very tasty when slow cooked. Perfect for stews/etc. 6-7 hours on low in a stock works great.

It’s mass that holds heat. Rammed earth is great if you don’t let it get too hot (so needs shading), or if it’s insulated (the best way).

For almost all of Australia bar the tropical north, the best construction is insulated mass - ie cladding (lightweight or not), then a cavity, then loads of insulation and a Vapor membrane, then masonry.

It’s not even quite that - the article suggested they raised the commercial equivalent of the 12% through competitive auction. These allow the bidders a set price over 20 years.

So it’s cheaper than buying in fossil fuels, the suppliers get certainty, and they achieve close to complete decarbonisation using private investment.

How good is that?

Whistleblower David McBride pleads guilty after court rules to withhold evidence over ‘security’ risk (www.theguardian.com)

Whistleblower David McBride has pleaded guilty to three charges after an ACT supreme court upheld a commonwealth intervention to withhold key evidence it deemed as having the potential to jeopardise “the security and defence of Australia” if released....

This must be insanely frustrating. Only more the reason to have a decent suite of whistleblower protection laws.

Mate, come on, that’s not fair at all. Get your head out of your arse.

ABC have been covering this heaps. They broke the Afghan files story in the first place. Adele Furgheson has literally been writing articles about whistleblowers and David McBride for weeks in the lead up to this. Latest one from looking at the ABC website here: www.abc.net.au/news/2023-11-18/…/103120544

Fairfax is also literally the news link at the top of the OP post here!

There are always excellent reports coming from the ABC & Fairfax with a quality of investigative work that FJ doesn’t even come close to matching. ABC & Fairfax may have their faults, but this is not one of them.

The whole premise of ads on Twitter is that they’re targeted.

IBM don’t sell consumer crap. They sell smoke and mirrors to major governments and industry. They’re chasing jobs worth millions per pop. They want ads to target the people making those decisions.

No. Hydrogen peroxide is the best disinfectant. Beats sunlight by a long long margin.

Bleaching Nazis on the internet is basically what OP is calling for, and by your own analogy, they’re right.

It’s a big WHOOOSH, but I actually do respect all the people getting as far as reading ‘twit…’… and saying ‘fuck that’.

I’m not being facetious or unkind here, but for many 10’s of thousands of years we have been developing meaningful social circles by seeing people in person. Just give it a go!

It’s not the onion, it’s The Chaser who are based in Australia. And I guarantee they don’t give a shit.

This is literally the “This is fine” meme.

It’s entirely possible to drink lemonade on 40deg days while not being complacent. The impact of climate change isn’t ‘one day I’ll be dead’. It’s an ‘it’s going to get worse before it gets worse’ situation. It’s a future where you might not even be able to get lemonade or Bundy rum with caps you can’t put back on the bottle.

The good old Google way. I’ve no idea why so many people are so willing to hand over everything to them. Say what you like about Apple, but at least they’re not selling your personal info.

Ahhh, Port Kembla. I mean it’s already a whale graveyard what with all those massive container ships chopping them up all year and the massive sewer outfall gassing them out. A few measly pylons just adds a bit of spice to the game!

Exactly. It’s all sympathy for the devil platitudes.

It’s terrible that we’re regressing towards a pre-1850’s society, but also ridiculous is that all this does is drive more money into non-productive housing.

Say want you want about the US, but at least there the dream of wealth is underpinned by the idea that you start a business doing something useful.

The Australian dream of wealth is flipping houses.

This is a really interesting story behind the story. If you remember how much Turnbull public resisted any kind of inquiry or Royal Commission, you get a sense of how powerful an influence the bank was able to exert on any ‘fair’ process.

Future Fund exposed to dangerous Chinese investments with links to human rights abuses and national security threats, audit finds (web.archive.org)

According to an audit conducted by opposition senator James Paterson in August, the $200 billion sovereign wealth fund first forayed into Chinese markets in 2007, but its investment exposures grew as China developed into a critical financial market....
