    Audis and Skodas are Volkswagens by another name.
    The interesting part is the adding of the $ premium for the name (Audi) and the subtracting it for the Skoda.
    They’re produced with the aid of German taxpayer funded subsidies by the way

    Is that even true? A large number of the German badges manufacturer their cars outside of Germany…

    No. it is not true. It is more of digit’s homespun communist boilerplate.

    Worst OF ever.

    big call.

    Can somebody set up a Catallaxy Facebook page for people who want to discuss Skodas and recipes?

    That ship has sailed, CL.
    Sinc doesn’t have a problem with it, and so it will continue.
    But a lot of the commenters aren’t exactly intellectual heavyweights, and this kind of chit chat is just more at their level. Yes, I wish they’d take it to facebook too, but they’d prefer to do it here, apparently.

    “right/left hand down”. when the gps was going to take him into a wet boggy crabhole.

    I do enjoy these tales from Down on the Farm that various contributors to this blog…contribute :) .

    Interesting stuff not that I claim to understand a lot of it, for example, why does one need a gps to fertilise/condition a field? And can’t the driver see a ‘boggy crabhole’ ahead of him? And what exactly is a “crabhole”?

    If you really want a bet each way, have you considered shearing one side of the sheep so they can put the remaining woolly side into the wind on a cold day?

    Yes; Marvel, stupidly, insists that “Thor [a god] is a woman”.

    Thor? Your Thor? I’m so Thor I can hardly pith!

  9. In New Zealand, the sheep are bred specially with two legs shorter on one side, so that they can spend time comfortably grazing on hillsides.

    People nowadays understand that all these mysterious trashings of hard drives and email records are no different from making a bonfire of paper files.

    yep, no different, except that in this electronic and Cloudy data & info age, it’s even easier to hide the original, carbon, photo and other copies of the files being burned in a mocking, SHUT UP!, ritual.

  21. .

    Um yes so what Grigory – Volkswagen group does not simply rebadge VWs as Audis or Audis as Skodas. This is anti materialistic, communist crap. It’s completely false.

    I mentioned a 1.6L TDI Audi which has better fuel efficiency than any Toyota hybrid. Digits then went on to say Audis have the exact same running gear as Audis. It is similar, but it is not “exactly the same”. The output profiles may have similar peaks but the rev range etc is different. They are tuned differently. if you think that’s not a big deal, pay the dollars to retune…

    Nor is the 1.6L TDI ultra available for the Skoda and VW etc. It has more power and even better efficiency.

    Never mind suspension, aerodynamics. etc.

    Treasurer Joe Hockey has threatened to find alternative savings if the Senate blocks his budget.

    Joe continues with his program of destroying the government in the polls. Having alienated the aged, motorists, smokers, drinkers, small business owners and employees, Joe is now looking for new targets in an attempt to get the polls to 65-35 in the oppositions favour.
    Why?
    He still likes his chances in a party room spill.

    The Passat r36 was manufactured in Germany, what a car. The mighty 3.6 litre v6 was de-tuned for the top Skoda car, from 220Kw to a mere 191Kw. VW enthusiasts do like the Skodas however.

  25. .

    Digits then went on to say Audis VW/Skoda have the exact same running gear as Audis.

    The level of sharing varies by generation. The B5, and B5.5 platforms for the A4 and Passat – there is a lot of sharing.

    The B6 – not so much. The Passat of this generation has far inferior transmission, suspension and turbo models are engineered below standard. The interchangeability of parts is also reduced.

    Anyway. The real point is that digit’s boastfulness is entirely empty.

    Many turbo cars (and many naturally aspirated) are more efficient than a Camry Hybrid or a Prius. Hybrids also rest on massive CO2 emissions in the energy intensive production of rare earth metals, which have shocking land and water pollution in China.

    There really is no point to most hybrid cars.

    urea works best when rained in to the soil, if you miss a rain event, and the urea sits on the top of the dirt too long, the nitrogen component can volatalise and drift off into the atmosphere [money gone with the wind]

    this means everybody wants to topdress in the optimum conditions, and the contractors get overbooked. i can topdress myself with older clearing sale gear, but it is more efficient to get the spreader truck,and gives me time to do other stuff [like spray like blazes,before the padocks get wet and the boom tractor chops them up.]

    old mate showed up about sunset, so we bounced away with hope and optimism. [he was late, as had been bogged 3 times at his last job]. it was dark, we had a truckload of fertiliser, gps that lets you drive in straight lines, a set disatnce apart for efficient paddock coverage at nightime–and bog traps everywhere.

    the ground here isn’t worth laser levelling, it has drainage lines,creeks,puddles,big puddles,and damn deep wet crabholes. if you sit shotgun with the truck driver, and know where the traps are, it helps to skid through and get the money spent on the paddock.

    we got there. no guarantee that there will be a profitable return on investment.

    —everybody should work for one of piggy paul howes fund owned, professionally managed farms. no drama there, and every body gets a fair and equal ration of whatever food gets eventually produced.

    Prosecutors were able to cast doubt on that defence by, among other things, retrieving metadata from his phone that showed a new connection was made to a charger early on the morning of April 20th. Prosecutors argued that the new connection showed Gerard Baden-Clay had not been in bed all night but had been out attempting to hide Alison’s corpse and, on returning home, connected his phone to a charger.

    Evidence not cited in the media.

  28. Australians have a right to be proud. We no longer tolerate racist vilification in public places. Free expression exposes and humiliates it on sight.

    Sure it does. Especially if the abuser is some drunk kid, or demented aging freakout or thug on a bus or in the street or a child at a football match.

    It’s a different story when it takes some guts.

    A street level health check on the state of Australian multiculturalism and a lesson in guts.

    It’s also doubtful how much of the heavy metals in the batteries are recycled at end-of-life.

    Apropos nothing in particular, but everything in general, from Washington’s Farewell Address (1796):
    “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. The mere politician, equally with the pious man, ought to respect and to cherish them. A volume could not trace all their connections with private and public felicity. Let it simply be asked: Where is the security for property, for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined education on minds of peculiar structure, reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle.”

    Yes John, the conversation was about ‘Heywire’ which is a rural youth speaking truth to power where the ABC swampies select a young and naive champion of some issue important to the ABC swampy(what, you think they would choose a young rural person who wanted to talk about something the collective didn’t agree with?) .

    Barnaby was actually saying he would like it to be funded, but it was up to Treasury, and besides, we have to live within our means and if we don’t pretty soon we won’t just be talking about Heywire, but the ABC in toto.

    I am saddened however to note that Barnaby did not question the swampy as to why Heywire was separately funded rather than be funded from part of the ABC general allocation of $1 billion.

    “we will make lists”

    that is the basic swampie threat.

    it is also why the swampies can point to a ‘certain type’ that reject and mock the swampie herd mentality.

    if you don’t care about being put on ‘the list’ , you can hurt swampie feelings at will.

    –if you own a small business where swampies are a significant part of the trade, better be careful.

    if your kids are at a swampie dominant school, better be careful.

    if the head of your department/company human resources is a passionate swampie, better keep off the list.

    big problem is that while the stalinists are out of power, they are making lists. if swampieworld arrives after the election, the bastards will methodically execute the lists.

    Monsignor Dempsey said he had been waiting for four years to hear he had been cleared, after Bishop Hepworth sought an initial response from the Catholic Church.

    “When Nick Xenophon made it public, that was when it was totally humiliating and there was the loss of my good name,” Monsignor Dempsey said.

    The Monsignor, it turns out, was totally innocent.

    Monsignor Dempsey asked that the letter be circulated to all senators, and that Senator Xenophon apologise for his “cruel and false public condemnation.”

    Xenophon the cowardly thug has always refused to do so.
