    Only the Singaporeans could install a double bed without considering what might come next.

    Someone stands over them and whacks them with a long rattan cane if it looks suspicious?

    Firearms licensing in Straya has nothing whatsoever to do with safety of the public. It is just blatant deliberate discouragement from owning same.
    See also CASA and aviation licensing.

    True.

    In other news demorat candidate compares Trump to bin laden.

    This after ugly feminist calls Trump’s daughter a feckless c..t. And who can forget all the leftie wishes for Trump to be killed including that old bastard Attenborough.

    But hey Roseanne’s still fired.

    Could anyone here explain to me where baseload power is coming from, if they shut down all the coal fired power stations? I have been arguing with the renewables crowd on the Australian Facebook page and no one seems to have an explanation for this. I think I may have to refrain from going there in future, if I want to retain my sanity.

  7. Herodotus

    So now it’s possible to legislate that power companies give 5 years notice of closure of power stations, but not to legislate that a power station be compulsorily acquired by the government or another company when closure is threatened in the short of long term.

    We are so stuffed.

    geriatric mayfly, Amazon already forces you to shop on Amazon Australia for books.

    Eyrie, I hope you are badly mistaken on this. It will be a very shallow pool if you are correct. I have just finished an e-book, which came out of the ether in the normal manner, and am poised to find another. If I see, “Does Not Ship To Sydney” it will be chemical sleeping pills instead of crafted words that I will need to bring on the night’s repose.

    I’m sorry, but Trump’s behavior is not just beneath the dignity of the Presidency…but that of any decent man.

    Leftards have zero self-awareness. And yes, it’s real..

    The Taiwanese Navy have been in town the last couple of days. In a small place like Majuro the numbers stand out, probably every 4th person you see is ROC Navy. This gives quite an opportunity for observation.

    They seem to have assembled themselves loosely into squads of 5-6 centred about 1 woman. The women are of course not horrible fat lesbian Australian Navy types, but rather pretty normal and petite Asians. There are of course two other groups, the officers and the lower ranks who’ve assembled themselves into smaller groups of 2 or 3 who’s main mission is simply drinking beer.

    On what basis have the larger groups assembled? My guess is it is based on a each individual blokes assessment of which particular female shipmate he might have a chance of rooting. This isn’t what’s going on? Sat out the front of my bungalow at lunch having a coffee, ROC female walks past (none staying at hotel, she’s clearly on recon), 2 minutes later ROC male walks past, 1 minute later the both walk back past. No nookie spots at the end of the path!

    All this must do wonders for morale!

    Far be it for a humble bruin to question a fellow Cats comprehension but you’ll find the 2nd qualifies the number of page turns and not the page number.

    To mark the ALPFL indigenous round I will be watching the footy this weekend in possum skin underpants. I encourage others to do the same.

    This may not include tonight’s match Sydney v Carlton which has all the entertainment potential of a man kicking a dog.

    What is the story with the new ferry service to Kangaroo Island?

    Chrisl, this is a passenger service operating between Cape Jervis and Penneshaw, same route as the Sealink car/freight/passenger service which, apart from a few wannabees, has enjoyed exclusive operating rights over the years. (One difference: the last sailing of the day will berth in American River, where it will stay overnight.)

    Fares for the new ferry are considerably cheaper, from $25.00 one way, compared with Sealink $49.00, $18.00 per child. For $50.00 one can buy tickets in the wheelhouse, with complimentary drinks.

    Plenty more on their website, including car storage, transfers and Island car hire.

    20 years ago the Valerie Jane ran as a passenger service along this route. It was very popular with Islanders. This new vessel, the James Cowell, is providing a service that has been lacking for a good 15 years.

    Authorities on the ball:

    A Ballarat Indian restaurant chef who murdered a Pakistani customer, stabbing him 17 times, when a dispute concerning the spiciness of his curries erupted into violence, had been living illegally in Australia since 2000. Justice Lex Lasry today sentenced him to 23 years, eligible for parole after 17, when he will likely be deported, accepting that despite his plea of not guilty he suffered anxiety because, as a high caste Hindu Brahmin, his actions would not be condoned by his peers.

  22. Boambee John

    eligible for parole after 17, when he will likely be deported,

    I’m sure that the AAT will be able to find an excuse to justify overturning the Ministerial decision to deport him.

    Perhaps because, as an illegal resident, he did not have a visa for the Minister to cancel?

  23. Free Tommy Robinson is up to 570,000 signatures.

  24. Snoopy

    Justice Lex Lasry today sentenced him to 23 years, eligible for parole after 17, when he will likely be deported,

    Not if the AAT has anything to do with it.

  25. Roger

    I’m sure that the AAT will be able to find an excuse to justify overturning the Ministerial decision to deport him.

    In the meantime, if they put him to work in the prison kitchen best hope nobody complains about spiciness.

  26. Rae

    Good work, Bear.

    First on page 6, and again on page 7. ie Second page turn on this thread.

    But, looks like an earlier latecomer has been un-moderated and nudged you into 2nd place now on page 6.

  27. Tel

    So now it’s possible to legislate that power companies give 5 years notice of closure of power stations, but not to legislate that a power station be compulsorily acquired by the government or another company when closure is threatened in the short of long term.

    The 5 years notice is not unreasonable, after all unreliable power can be unsafe.

    Sooooo, also 5 years notice for any wind farm shutdown I would presume… in the interests of reliability you understand, think of the sick children.

    More likely not be condemned by his peers.
    Being high caste makes killing others ok.

    The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) is once again pushing the radical LGBT agenda on its 1.69 million daily commuters. The design for the June Metropass discount card features a picture of a mural from Toronto’s “Gay Village”. (This can also be seen on the TTC Twitter page.) The mural showcases “WorldPride 2014” – the shameless worldwide homos3xual and transvestite “pride” event which was held in Toronto that year.

    Can anyone recommend a good Italian or Chinese restaurant in Ballarat? I don’t think I’ll risk an Indian meal.

    the 2nd qualifies the number of page turns and not the page number.

    The number of people who realised what you’re on about would equal just one: you.

    Enjoy your triumph, Bear. I’ll toast you with another cup of coffee.

  33. Roger

    So, that excitable Indian chef had lived here for 17 years, presumably working all that time in Indian restaurants and paying no tax with the connivance of his employers who themselves would have benefited by paying him at less than award rates, until he blew his cover by murdering someone. Why is Border Force – and their predecessor agency – evidently so incurious about who staffs the Indian restaurants multiplying like rabbits across the landscape of Australia?

  34. Nick

    Zyco, it could be worse I spose, trains, tunnels, shunting and all.

  35. Rae

    the 2nd qualifies the number of page turns and not the page number.

    The number of people who realised what you’re on about would equal just one: you.

    And me. So that’s two who realized.

  36. Rae

    At least two. Probably more.

    Delta A Thanks for that I was on that ferry a few years ago and I was speaking to a local farmer who complained about it costing $2000 to put a truck full of grain on the ferry!A bit of competition might be handy.

  41. Delta A

    A bit of competition might be handy.

    It certainly would, chrisl, but the new ferry is a catamaran passenger only service.

    Two other vehicle ferries have tried in the past 20 years, and failed. Sealink has a monopoly.

    Check out all their other business interests, bought from their Island service and so, largely from the Islanders. One of – maybe the most expensive ferry route – mile for mile, in the world.

    Sealink is not held fondly by the locals.

  42. Atoms for Peace

    Because I’m Catholic and watching the indigenous round, I will wear my possum undies fur inwards.

    Arky, if you know anyone on Kangaroo Island, then we know someone in common. It’s that sort of place.

  44. Death Giraffe

    Can’t you remember where you parked the Ark Delta?
    Now list everyone you know on the island will you?

  45. Delta A

    Now list everyone you know on the island will you?

    Well, there was this lovely British sailor called Matthew Flinders, and a rather awkward Frenchman, Nicolas Baudin. Lois Freycinet, another Frenchie – any of those names ring a bell, Arky?

    Adam Goodes, Irishman of Colour, doing some pre-game grandstanding at the footy. Despite an impressive brains trust in the Channel Stokes commentary box – Basil Zempilas, BT, The Duck and Ding-a-Ling, no-one asked the question, “Why out of the dozens of Aboriginal players was Goodes the only one booed in the way he was?” It’s a complete mystery.

    “These white-owned businesses hamper the ability for POC”—people of color—“to run successful businesses of their own . . . by either consuming market share with their attempt at authenticity or by modifying foods to market to white palates.”

    I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

    Martin Luther King, Jr..

    and the problem does in fact often arise when one judges many POCs by the content of their character

    Woolies are paranoid about grapes on the floor. Them’s the slippiest things.
    They stopped insuring against slips,trips, and falls years ago.
    The process now is they investigate the Claim, if it has merit, they pay you c.$37,000, and you sign something in return.
    The alternative is going to Court vs. Woolworths.
    Best of luck.

    Getting cold in the Top End. About 18 degrees at night. Very low humidity. Fans off.

    The other night we had to get out a light doona.

    Need to keep up the warming drinks. Red wine wards off the chills.

    If it gets colder we’ll have to look out the port decanter, and go on up to Woollies for a tawny.

    Refugee mother, 55, sues Woolworths for $1.3MILLION ‘because she slipped on a shallot while distracted by a promotion for a constipation aid’

    At the beginning of the year my mother tripped and fell on a mat in the fruit area of woolworths. The manager was very solicitous, sent her flowers, follow up phone calls to see how she was doing etc. Quite long phone calls. They seemed fast friends. Mum certainly liked him. The next month she had a stroke and has passed away now. The poor manager rang up the other day and he seemed almost as upset as Dad.
    I really hope it was because he liked her.

    And the First Fleet were the first football supporters enduring months at sea and scurvy to be the first to see a genuine AFL match and learn how to make an oval leather football. They were awestruck seeing the SCG for the first time and the pre-match cheerlubras were the prettiest women they had ever seen. Unfortunately one of the 13 year old female convicts made a derogatory remark about one of the Aboriginal players and racism was born and ruined a previously entirely harmonious continent. And the First Fleet supporters liked it so much they stayed, walking across the Sydney Harbour Bridge to get to the north shore where the beaches were better. if they hadn’t been so impetuous they could have caught the ferry. White people know nothing about the history of Australia. Next week Burke and Wills hop on the Ghan to discover inland Australia.

    I’ve read studies where full moon light exposure can impact the circadian rhythms of fruit flies. I’d like to know if there is any human impact is it related to full moon light exposure or not. Even dim light at night can rapidly decrease melatonin production and perturb the sleep cycle. Mt. is a potent antioxidant and a key player in helping us sleep. Mt. also potentiates Natural Killer cell activity and those little killers are important in annihilating cancer cells. Mt. tends to fall with age. Dopamine and melatonin are mutually antagonistic so the interesting question for people like me is whether elevated dopamine combined with falling cortisol(it fades away through the night) has behavioral implications.

    While I’m here, today finished reading “Darwin’s Dilemma” by S. Meyer, and Intelligent Design advocate. He raises some very good points. For those so interested worth a look.

    The old saying ‘imitation is the finest form of flattery’ is unlikely to appease the design team that produced the Lamborghini Urus, which now has a Chinese twin – the Huansu C60 Hyosow.

    White people know nothing about the history of Australia. Next week Burke and Wills hop on the Ghan to discover inland Australia.

    Next week, the true history about how the Aborigines had sent embassies to New Zealand and Indonesia, and signed treaties with Malaysia and China, before evil Debbildebbil white fella showed up and wrecked the whole earthly paradise……

    The pages contain the memorable quotes and conversations from the Starship Troopers.

    Dizzy: My mother always told me that violence doesn’t solve anything.

    Jean Rasczak: Really? I wonder what the city founders of Hiroshima would have to say about that.

    [to Carmen]Jean Rasczak: You.

    Carmen: They wouldn’t say anything. Hiroshima was destroyed.

    Jean Rasczak: Correct. Violence has resolved more conflicts than anything else. The contrary opinion that violence doesn’t solve anything is merely wishful thinking at its worst.

    There’s another quote from “Starship Troopers” that men have been infantry soldiers, since the days of the Egyptian Pharaohs, but I can’t find it.

    Old favourite, posted on the Cat. Memsahib’s gout is bothering her. She’s self medicating with gin and tonic, to the point where she’s revealing her Lefty tendencies. I’m retreating, into my library, with a decanter of Scotland’s finest. Night, all.

    I cannot believe the unbelievably light sentences that are dished out for murder if you take somebody’s life you should forfeit your own, your entire life.

    FFS. Get to a doctor. Get prescription for chill-out. Ask the chemist for the “real” dosage. Drink heaps of water. 48 hours at most and all gone! Tonic water is a killer!

    I understand Latham joined the ldp but I would really love it if he ran for the Australian Conservatives which I see is his natural fit. I can’t see Latham supporting some of the extreme whack job ldp policies like open borders and their war on families.

    In the future we might put murderers into suspended animation:
    They don’t get to live their lives, a constant mockery to their victims, but if evidence emerges of their inocence they can simply go back about their lives, otherwise, once a century or two have gone by they can be safely turned into compost.

    It’s within my lifetime that Ronald Ryan was hanged, and I’m remembering all the uproar about “What right does the State have to take human life?”

    What right does anyone have to take another man’s life if there is no war? But right does the State have to save this man’s life was only worth 5 years and that woman’s life was only worth 17? Murder, the intentional killing of an innocent human being, is a moral outrage. If you take a life you need to forfeit your own, no ifs or buts. There is absolutely no moral impediment to capital punishment for murder. In fact it is the only just punishment under the circumstances. The only reason I oppose capital punishment is the risk of executing an innocent man which is the worst possible crime. That is the only reason. The alternative should still be that you dorfeir your life in which case if you murder you go to prison for the rest of your natural life. Anything less just means that human life is cheap.

    P, you’ve posted here, as someone who was married to a former officer? NCO? of the Netherlands Marine Korps, in the late 1950’s in New Guinea. There was a certain officer, of the Korps Mariners, who had been a prisoner of war of the Japanese, following the fall of the Netherlands East Indies to the Japanese in 1942. The Korean guards on the Burma Railway were so barbaric that, when ordered to Korea as part of the Dutch contingent in 1950, and despite being a future commandant of the Corps, he resigned his commission,and emigrated to Australia, rather then serve in Korea. His name was widely known through the Korps as late as 2001. You wouldn’t know that name, would you?

    Strictly classical here I’m afraid. With an occasional genuine folk tune.

    None, I remember you writing here when I first started reading Catallaxyfiles.
    I liked what you wrote back then at the end of 2014.

    You did not follow my instructions I gave above re “a clean url” with no “feature” in the url.
    Don’t give up.
