    I can’t even say nice try about that explanation Doc. If he has twenty sheep in a pen and one takes off, he has 19 left whether he can count to twenty or not.

    I’m a much more practical person than you are, sdfc. I think it’s important that the shepherd actually knows he’s missing a sheep.

    A crossfire hurricane

    Yeah wtf is it with that?

    The 2012 documentary Crossfire Hurricane covers The Rolling Stones performances from the late 1960s to the mid 1970s, including performances from their US tour at the time of the Watergate scandal.
    Donald Trump reportedly had a dispute with the group over $1m losses from a tour he contracted in 1989 and later used part of “You can’t always get what you want” in his election campaign appearances, which angered the musicians- and thereby gave Trump something he wanted.

    Fuck I hope so.

    Should be a great game regardless.

    A crossfire hurricane

    According to wiki, the lyric “I was born in a crossfire hurricane” came from Keith and refers to his being born in London during the blitz.

    Makes sense. His memoir mentions his earliest memories of playing in bomb craters.

    So you agree mathematical laws just are, whether we discover them or not.

    Richmond play a good brand of footy, but they shit me. Good luck.

    Note that the system one, twe, lots doesn’t work too well. The arithmetic goes

    One plus one is two,
    One plus two is lots,
    One plus lots is lots.
    I’ll let you fill in the rest of the addition table for yourself. You can even do the multiplication table if you like.

    The problem is subtraction. If you have lots of zheep and someone steals one, you might still have lots left. So it’s not really stealing at all.

    Marxist mathematics is popular in some quarters.

    Tiges and Eagles both have the best brand of footy. It’s actually watchable compared to the rest of the comp.

    In a righteous world they will play on a Grand Final this year and the Richmond will win by 1 point.

    So we can safely stop looking for regularities and patterns, knowing they’ll still be there whether we find them or not. It’s not Zippy who is putting out whacky stuff.

  12. Oh come on

    I thought Annie and her seemingly genuine flat earth beliefs were the apex of Cat OT crankdom. But now we have Zippy questioning the veracity of negative numbers.

  13. sdfc

    You seem to be struggling Doc.

    Let’s dumb it down a bit.

    Does one plus one equal two whether we describe it or not?

  14. jupes

    They definitely do. They won a premiership with it.

    The Eagles have been lucky. They have been gifted with weak teams – either on form or through injury – to play themselves into form. But by fuck, they have made the best of it and are in superb form.

    Darling, Hurn and Shepherd are in career best All Australian form, LeCras and Masten are also in the form of their careers and in that positive environment the kids have all shown something.

    Early days but plenty to look forward to.

    The zheep might give you an argument, but it doesn’t have the leg to stand on.

    The eagles shit me too.

    The Essendon Bombers have the best off-side trap of anyone in the comp, but the linesmen never pay it.

    It’s alright it’s all Mark Neeld’s fault.

    Does one plus one equal two whether we describe it or not?

    Not under the simplest numeral system.

    Was just talking with a Syrian bloke from Aleppo.

    He thinks Australia is great, but can’t make any sense of our immigration program. To many hard working Syrian Christians being rejected and to many of “the others” being accepted.

    Australia’s immigration program is designed to destroy.

    (Now in a Taxi 3km from the airport and the driver just got lost.)

    If you don’t have the rules they taught you at school, sdfc, one plus one could easily be eleven. I am glad you have internalised a better answer. Where do you think the better answer came from? Always there?

    Or is this a philosophical question, like does a falling tree in a forest make a sound if there’s no human being around to hear it? Or would one plus one still be two after the human race is extinct and nobody is alive to check your arithmetic?

    If you say yes to either of these questions, how do you know?

    Give it away.

    I could care less what the pundits think of Candace Owens. She’s young. She has failings (don’t we all?). But she’s not a leftard and most importantly: she fights.

    Trump has them all flummoxed. The way he kept repeating ‘He is going to be very happy, very happy’ when talking about Kim was pure salesmanship. Now he introduces the EU to reality:

    It is really quite sad to see the lack of gumption by EU leaders when confronted with Donald Trump’s threats.

    The fundamental tenet of German policy will be to protect the interests of industry in general, and of the car industry specifically. That clearly sets limits to the EU’s ability to stand up to Donald Trump, and risks a major trade conflict.

    Yesterday’s EU summit in Sofia agreed a broad strategy of the neither-here-nor-there kind to deal with Trump. The leaders managed to agree that they will not enter into a trade talks if the US applies tariffs to steel and aluminium from June 1, when the current and final exemption expires.

    The leaders also agreed the implausible strategy to prepare protection for European companies against secondary US sanctions to be slapped on EU companies dealing with Iran. But they gave no details on how this can be done. As FAZ recently pointed out, the only companies willing and able to resist US pressure will be European importers of Persian carpets.

    Jean-Claude Juncker even mentioned the possibility of invoking the blocking statute. This is the ultimate bluff. The statute would allow the EU to impose sanctions on European companies that comply with US sanctions. In other words, it would give EU companies a choice between pest and cholera. Needless to say, this has not been agreed. Nor will it be. It is a sign of the helplessness and panic of EU leaders that they even talk about it.

    Windbags Juncker, Merkel, Macron
    Merkel’s role in Europe is now essentially the same as Juncker’s. Both are nothing but pathetic windbags with dwindling power.

    Macron wants to be the European savior but he is just another windbag who bows down to Trump internationally while accomplishing nothing domestically.

    Nonetheless, this story is not over yet. The EU will at some point be forced to respond and the results won’t be pretty.

    Let me put it this way. If you have three groups of three people.

    In what world don’t we have nine people? Terminology doesn’t matter.

    Oh dear …
    Leaked court transcripts show Mueller and his team in the 13 Russians case are being bashed about the head, kicked in the balls and left in the street by defence counsel. It’s just embarrassing.

    OK. Your ability to not notice the bleeding obvious, that someone has to work out the rules you seem to think came on the back of the ten commandments, makes this a waste of both our time. Stick to footy, it’s within your intellectual ambit. Thinking isn’t your thang.

  29. sdfc

    The rules were already there Doc Dopey. 1 + 2 is 3 independent of human description.

  30. sdfc

    In what world is 2x^2 not equal to 18 if x=3?

    Show your workings.

  31. DrBeauGan

    The rules were already there Doc Dopey. 1 + 2 is 3 independent of human description.

    What is this three of which you speak? 1+2 is lots. And lots times lots is lots. Well known fact.

    My aboriginal rules work and are easier to use than yours. But in another lots of years, your weird language will be forgotten and your rules with them. And all children will learn our rules in the schools. If we still have schools by then.

    Cripes, you’re dumb.

  32. sdfc

    Suit yourself Dr dipshit. I’m bored with your stupidity now.

    Dribble Bogon cannot tell anything about reality AND claims to know something about numbers than the rest of you.

    Do you buy at Aldi?

    Come on dribble guts.

    Whats a number?

    You are the one that says you know what it is so tell us dumb fucks you clever dick.

  35. Bruce in WA

    Just finishing up two weeks driving around Ireland. They have a huge referendum on 25 May on allowing a more liberal approach to abortion. The place is absolutely covered with signs for and against. I mean tens of thousands of them. My take: the country is overwhelmingly “no”, while the “yes” vote outweighs them in the city. (Note: This is purely a gut feeling based on the relative numbers of posters.)
