    I’ve made that same resolution every year since about 1970 or so, but then summer comes and wins me back. We’re all Swedes and Finns and Norwegians, so brain damage is just assumed.

    LOL. It certainly takes a unique sense of humour to survive in that climate.

    You’ve inspired me to kick off Fargo S3 tonight.

    It was an interesting cruise, although not one I’d readily repeat.

    Your 3 expositions on the Ovation of the Seas 10 nighter to NZ were a good read. But it was clear that you were containing your enthusiasm lest your words betray a difference from the Cat hive mind. Heaven forbid that you should have actually let slip that you enjoyed your Supercruising experience.

    The CDC stats reflected above cover any type of shipboard gastroenteritis outbreak, regardless of what type of stomach bug it involves, but the most common outbreaks are of norovirus, a highly contagious virus that can be contracted by eating contaminated food or touching infected surfaces.

  4. Nick

    you should have actually let slip that you enjoyed your Supercruising experience.

    Absolutely thuper

  5. Rae

    Nice try, Nick. But if you want to be clever speaking in tongues you should have said:

    Abtholutely thuper

    Seems you are not clever. Not at all.

    Bruce, just watching from one of our kitchen windows the feeding frenzy at our neighbour’s place, where they put out food for the Lorikeets. A newby fledgling Pied Currawong hopped onto the ledge and tried to grab a bit. The flock of screetching Lories chased him away quick smart; a chastened bird. When he gets bigger he’ll retaliate. Meantime, our front path, newly tiled, is his regular toilet, along with his little brother. There is a handy overhanging branch, high up, that they like to sit on for their evacuations; the Long Drop, I believe the medievals called such things. The Currawongs ignore my rubber snake put there to terrify them.

    An interesting thing about William Larnach of Larnach Castle in Dunedin, whose biography I am reading: in the 1870’s this eccentric land baron and futurist installed long drop toilets for the servants out the back, and collected methane from the results in a specially constructed system, which then lit up the gas lights in his dining and drawing rooms; a point of great interest to the local elites when they came dining. He also experimented with double glazing. Reminded me rather of Benjamin Franklin’s house that we visited in the USA, which was full of quirky inventions too, such as a double-pen that made a copy of whatever you wrote with it, and self-opening doors that worked on a sort of pulley system.

    These mad rich magnates of the period. I was talking about them today on the email to Perpetua Durack, who says I should write a comparison piece about Larnach and Durack in the early days. Maybe.

    JC, I’ve made just over $7,000 this afternoon after chickening out with a $20,000 loss yesterday. If I’d held my nerve it would have been a profit yesterday, but it failed me. Bugger it. Thats AUD vs USD. Well over 78¢ currently. It’s nice to see such optimism given the long term prospects for the local economy.

  8. Ragu

    Grigorrhea is the most socially retarded person in the world. Everyone in the world would rather go to a fireworks and open fire bbq party full of autists than the Grey Nurse Sage from Narrabeen Lakes.

    Here’s a Xmas poem for BLM courtesy of Celestia Questa commenting on Takimag. A working knowledge of Ebonics( as she is spoke) will help-

    Once upon uh time, inna far way hood……
    De Night Befoe Cremma

    Wuz de night befoe Cremma an all ovah da hood
    Er body wuz sleepin, dey wuz sleepin good
    We hung up r stockin and hope like da hek
    Dat ole Sanna Claw goan bring da welfare check
    All de family wuz lay in dey beds
    Wif Funderbert wine danc’n in dey heads
    I’d passed out on de flow right next to Ma
    When I hear such a fuss I tink it wuz de law
    I looked frew da bars dat covered ma doe
    Spectin da sheriff wif a warrant to show
    And what I seen den made me say “Look at DAT”
    Dey wuz a huge wallamelon pulled by sum wharf rats
    All ober de worl Sanna Claw be white
    But he look like us bros come dis Cremma night
    Fastah dan a poleeze car de homeboy he came
    He hollah at dem wharf rats, he call dem by name
    On Leroy, On Roosevelt, Jonterious Lee,
    On Willy and Malcolm – Dey’s a site ta see!
    He landed dat melon out dere in da street
    I newz fo sure wen I smelz his feet
    He didn’t come down no chimley
    He picked de lock on ma doe
    An I says to myself “Sheett! He dun dis befoe!”
    He hat dis big bag fulla presents I spec
    Wif Air Jordans and Golt to wear ’round ma neck
    But he lef no good presents, jus stoled all my shit
    Got ma drugs and ma guns and ma Burglar Kit
    Wif ma stuff in dat bag out da winda he flew
    I woulda chaste him but he took ma knife too!
    He hop in dat melon and whooped out a switch
    He were gone in one second – Dat Fat Sum a Bitch!
    Next year I be hopin a white Sanna we get
    Cuz de black Sanna Claw – he ain’t wurf a shit.

    Holee sheet how dem honkies get this through.

    I gonna pop me a cap in some ghost’s ass I ever come cross dis mothafukka.

    Ha! You’ll understand this after you watch, but I live in Eden Prairie and one of my sisters lives in Eden Valley.

    If I’d held my nerve it would have been a profit yesterday, but it failed me

    The thing that comes over so well about these old C19th magnates is that they held their nerve.
    There is a skill to it, a certain sort of bravado/ruthlessness. Hairy has it. JC has it. Dr. BG, be careful because you may be someone who is a more cautious type. Who doesn’t make the big plays, and loses.

    SGT Report interviews Liz Croken 28th Dec 2017

    https://youtu.be/3AQ5IJ_exb0

    At about the 10 minute mark they discuss the dozens of unmarked planes flying to Gitmo from all over the world.

    Would it be too much to expect that Julia Gillard and Julie Bishop might be on one? They’re probably not involved in the child sex trafficking themselves but they did give hundreds of millions of our money to the Clinton Foundation/Charities.

    Something big is coming. The NWO are not going to give up without a fight.

  13. Dave in Marybrook

    Good to see that we can again name Dr(Hons) Geoffrey G Yunupingu, instead of the ridiculous he-who-cannot-be-named charade.
    Even if no-one buys his records again, ever. Elevator music crap, awful nasal voice that compares only with that Anthony and the Johnsons chap- a triumph of the backing band’s ability to paper over the cracks and flesh out another dirge to six minutes.
    Funny how no-one mentioned the Gospel album during the sorry time though. It’s like it never existed.

  14. Rabz

    Anyone could replace The Edge.

    LOL. I bet BB lost a few friends after that li’l culturally inappropriate microaggression outrage.

  15. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    It was an interesting cruise, although not one I’d readily repeat.

    That’s what I said in the travelogue I wrote too. There were some points of interest, and it was a good cruise for families with children or teenagers who didn’t mind crowds and some naff entertainments. The ‘Paul Gaugin’ it was not. The variety of the passengers provided anthropological data. 🙂

    Anyone could replace The Edge.

    They could, the guy is a hack. Doesn’t take much skill to sit on top of an echo pedal and play the same riff since 1980. Watched some guitar interview with him where he proclaimed “some guys like to play a lot of notes [as in fast] but me, I just like to play the right ones.” His way of making a virtue out of a lack of dexterity.

    Mike of Marion bloody awful new – hoping the specialists have a plan, a plan for recovery. Best wishes.

  24. Bruce of Newcastle

    Lizzie – Sadly I had a rainbow lorikeet kiddie die in my hands this morning. Sick or starved I don’t know, I found it on the ground when I went out after breakfast. It accepted a little water from an eye dropper but died as I was trying to get some diluted honey ready. Which made me feel guilty so I then put out some bread, thereby causing a green and purple scrum. Doesn’t seem to be much food about for them at the moment for whatever reason.

    My reading is The History of the Thirty Years’ War by Freidrich Schiller, written in the 18thC. It’s marvellous that such books are available now at the touch of a mouse button.

    I don’t mind The Edge, though that ‘strum’ thing he has going isn’t going to make the greats quiver in awe any time soon.

    Mater and Mike, please don’t die.

    2018 is going to be a hell of a year! You wouldn’t want to miss it.

    In the meantime don’t be afraid to fast, keep your insulin levels low (NO SUGAR), load with coconut oil, high dose Vitamin C and Monatomic Gold.

    I’m not good at it but I’ll pray for you. I certainly have no faith in Big Pharma.

    Love to you both.

  28. Ragu

    Sounds like an admission that he can’t play 16th notes. Cool. Zappa couldn’t. Steve Vai can pull it off pretty fucking good.

    But you can make your two hands create poly-rhythms

    Ok Anne, but only because you asked so nicely.

    Tisk. No doubt your fellow passengers would agree.

    Indeed. I hope so. We are all different and with different life experiences. This ship throws many different types of people together. One of its advantages. I don’t disparage anthropology. A fine study, if well done.

  34. I’m not good at it but I’ll pray for you.

    You don’t have to be “good” at it, Anne, just sincere. I’m sure all Cats of goodwill are sending Mater and Mike their sincerest comfort and support, even as we speak. I know I am, and I’m an agnostic.

  35. candy

    Mike and Mater
    What awful news, such terrible battles you face. I hope very much you have spouses/family there for you, because anything can be faced when you have people who love you with you all the way.
    I’ll say a prayer for you both as others here will.

    I’m pretty sure Jesus smiles upon Catallaxians because they have such an outrageous wicked ribald sense of humour and make one laugh and that’s exactly what everyone needs these days.

    Rabz, I worry at some point your sweet heart will fail you for fear.

    Also, I clearly said: Only for the red-pilled.

    Mike and Macca, the distant rellie of mine in his fifties who was six months ago diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, in a generally poor state of health to start with because been a junkie, had the Whipple procedure, a long operation, and then some radiation and chemotherapy. It was a tough time for him, but he pulled through, and has now been declared in remission from cancer. He rang me thrilled with the news. He’d previously rung me to have a long chat about God, because I’m educated and he is not (don’t know why but he thought that mattered). I’m probably not the best person for getting God right, but we did seem to make a connection that mattered to him. I talked about love and hope. At the start, he was looking at a life span of less than three months; he’s gone from that, to thinking about what to do in the coming year, projects etc.

    Message: there is always hope and love. And keeping your sense of humour, like you just did Makka.

    Lizzie,
    I’m not afraid of dying. Everyone dies, but not everyone truely lives…and I have lived! Even at my relatively tender age, I have been fortunate enough to have ‘been and seen’ more than most do in three-score-and-ten.

    The rub in dying is that I have a wife to whom I, long ago, made a promise. I also have a couple of young boys to whom my duty, as a father, is not yet complete.

    No, I shan’t be shuffling off this mortal coil just yet. But when I do, the last memories my boys have of their Father will not include him crouching in the corner, crying about it.

  57. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    All she could talk about was equalidy, wealth distribution, re-engagement and equalidy, oh and misogynee,

    Much to my immortal shame, a certain branch of my family – University educated professionals – vote Labor, as the Party of equality and social justice. When I asked if a couple in their position with a holiday home, on the coast, and a city apartment that’s pied au terre for “weekends in town” would be prepared to give up said units so a young couple could get a foothold on the housing ladder, in the name of “redistribution of wealth” it was explained that the redistribution of wealth would be at a National level.

    I’m also trying to remember the name of the poster-girl for the Union movement who made the brilliant discovery that you had to create wealth, in order to redistribute said wealth?

    I’m not afraid of dying. Everyone dies, but not everyone truely lives…and I have lived!

    Ginsburg, the old cadaver, criticised Trump for being a faker. In the travel ban case she did not recuse herself despite her previous political comments about Trump. What a stinking old hypocrite. But then she is a leftie.

    Have you ever had a nine millimeter pistol discharged towards but barely missing your face from inches away? I have.

    6.5 x 55 Swede, muzzle in line with and about 30 cm away from my right eardrum. Felt like someone had rammed a pencil in there. Deaf for 24 hours, hearing slowly came back. Absolute screeching tinnitus ever since. Not pleasant.

    A great tweet by Trump:

    In the East, it could be the COLDEST New Year’s Eve on record. Perhaps we could use a little bit of that good old Global Warming that our Country, but not other countries, was going to pay TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS to protect against. Bundle up!

    Comments from the lefties are priceless.

    Lefties do not change, just belief system more entrenched. . Uni educated oldies where I live think Tel Aviv is Israel’s capital even after viewing U tube of Netenhayu wishing Christians Merry Xmas from our capital , Jerusalem.
    I said they better inform the history Teacher at Scotch College who had taught my grandson the wrong capital of Israel.

    Make a prediction. One that I will accept as reasonable about Trump that isn’t something like night follows day. If you get it right, I’ll take you to Mar a Lago for 18 holes… if we can get in.

    But you will have to buy suitable attire that I must firstly approve.

    That’s a deal. If Ginsberg is alive even a second after he’s left the presidency, I pay expenses to have a golf game at Mar a Lago. There’s one provision. I have to approve the golf attire too.
    I will make all attempts to have a game there. I’m being fair dinkum about this too.
    If Trumps dies, no deal though.

    All good fun for sure, but what I don’t get is why you would want to play Mar a Lago with a lesbian. You’re probably safe though.

    Ginsburg will be 91 when Trump completes his second term.

    JC, I’ve made just over $7,000 this afternoon after chickening out with a $20,000 loss yesterday. If I’d held my nerve it would have been a profit yesterday, but it failed me. Bugger it. Thats AUD vs USD. Well over 78¢ currently. It’s nice to see such optimism given the long term prospects for the local economy.

    I shorted it much lower, averaged in and took a pasting. It’s been a relentless upward move. I’m really sore at myself as I always make money during the Xmas / New Year period because the trend always follows through. It did! Upward and I missed the move.

    I bought Euro, which means I’m square P/L wise, but I should have made money this week.

    I had the market psych pegged in that the Aussie was being up on the expectation of higher global GDP, but I didn’t make any money.

    Oh yea, Emp. Thanks for reminding me. I just thought I would take a short cut and collect just over the turn of the year.

    But hey, it’s not over yet. I still have 31st Dec closing at midnight NY TIME 🙂

    I should have taken the lezzo’s proposed bet as it looks really good looking back.

    I want to say more but really don’t want to sound ghoulish after what’s been posted today.

    Life’s so freaking unfair. We read about the two blokes here and the old crow seems to be still going strong. FMD

  81. Oh come on

    I’m very sorry to hear things are far from the best, Mike and Mater. Best wishes for you both pulling through.

    Fair suck, Emp. It’s only recent that I found he’s a full blown lesbian.

    Sharan Burrow, remember her? Now head of the ITUC

    Her rancid history aside, the current body she heads up is working non-stop to highlight the brutally of the Qataris stadium building for 2022 world cup.
    According to them, approx. 2000 workers have died already working on the projects.
    Zero international coverage due to $$$ associated to the biggest event on the planet.
    If I last to 2022, I will be boycotting the event.

    But they would say that wouldn’t they.

  85. Oh come on

    What does JC get if m0nts loses the Mar-A-Lago bet? (Because I think he probably will.)

    Isn’t the whole thing about high stakes poker that you’re supposed to bet with…well…high stakes? Taking m0nts down to your local for a beer would be excruciating enough. Did m0nts wager his firstborn into indentured servitude to your family or something?

  86. JC

    The bet – escorting his Lardless to Florida… was a silly bet. I recall now. It was a one way street, as he didn’t risk anything. That’s why the bet became , Ginsburg would be gone in 17. Lezbo had nothing to lose in the first proposal and subsequently had skin in the game.

    Where is the idiot at the moment, as he hasn’t shown up since before Xmas, I think.

  87. feelthebern

    jupes, I reckon it would be more than that.
    They’ve had a few summers now, working in 55 degree heat, in media exclusion zones.
    Most of the unskilled workers are essentially slaves.

  88. Oh come on

    To be fair, JC did stipulate m0nts acquiring appropriate attire. That’s a massive probable deal breaker right there. If he’s told Dunlop KT26s and Holeproof Explorer socks pulled up to the knee wasn’t appropriate, m0nts would show up in a pink and yellow tartan beret with a matching polo shirt, sporran and kilt.

    That’s not Sharron Burrow.
    She’s far more odious on the eye.

  91. feelthebern

    Imagining getting stuck behind those four in the buffet line?
    Worse than getting stuck behind monty.

    Ha, the butterball on the right of the vid.

    FMD That thing saps me of the will to live.

    That’s not Sharron Burrow.

    The porker on the right? I once asked and was told it was her.

  94. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    That’s not Sharron Burrow.

    Joan Kirner, Jenny George, Julia Gilliard and Sharon Burrows. The whole fvcking, revolting, Left wing gang.

    Thieves, incompetents and ideologues. Pretty good cross-section of Leftists.

    Forgive me if I don’t give a fuck. Muslims always treat other Muslims badly. It’s how they roll.

    The problem is whenever we try to help them, the ungrateful pricks try and kill us, so let them sort their own shit out.

    Do not back food.
    500 to 1.

  98. Oh come on

    It’s Sharan. Sharan!

    Of course it is, Mzzzz Burrows.

    Finished the day $10,629 up, JC. I’m short on faith, so did it in small bites of two and three k a time.

    I simply don’t understand the dynamics at all. I’m treating it as a sum of three random walks at different time scales.

    Any chance of the fed raising interest rates any time soon do you think? That could bugger me big time.

  100. Oh come on

    Forgive me if I don’t give a fuck. Muslims always treat other Muslims badly. It’s how they roll.

    To be fair, this is true for the way the haves have typically treated the have-nots in just about every society in history with the exception of the West.

    The problem is whenever we try to help them, the ungrateful pricks try and kill us, so let them sort their own shit out.

    But yeah this bit is a particular quirk of the Ummah.

    I’m pretty sure it is. That vid was taken a long time ago. Obviously Burrows is much uglier now.

    I’m not one for censorship of consenting adults, but that video should be treated the same as the pizza business. There’s a whole lot of evil going on. And to think there are blokes out there, some of them sitting parliamentarians, who shipped these monsters.

  102. Empire

    Fair suck, Emp. It’s only recent that I found he’s a full blown lesbian.
