    As I said – cray cray!

  2. Stimpson J. Cat

    Tell us again now 30 year old Emily Ratajkiwski looks 14, None.
    It’s hilarious every time.

  3. None

    You sound a lot like Grigs.

    Bingo again. That’s all you have. You and numbers clearly are bum buddies.

  4. Stimpson J. Cat

    Perhaps it’s time for you to realise that we’re just not interested.

    What’s with all the “we” business?
    Why don’t you try speaking for yourself for a change.

    Chris, Variety ….. Wigs are expensive but I’d rather donate directly to a person who wants a wig rather than these charity programs.

    Oh absolutely, and that is why Stimpson’s appeal on behalf of his friend, touched my wallet so deeply.

  6. None

    Tell us again why you fancy women who shave so that they look like prepubescent girls, Stimpy. Clearly you are itching to tell us.

  7. Can we have some shalom at the Cat…….except to Scumbers…the Jooo hating bird shitter.

  8. None

    Male pattern baldness is not a charity case, Chris.

  9. Stimpson J. Cat

    This may be hard for you to understand None, but I actually have some principles, a subject that is clearly as foreign to you as the English language.

    Stimpson your principles did not extend to keeping your marriage together but they do extend to oggling women who look like prepubescent girls. I got that. Next.

    It’s because Stimpson is bald…he can’t cope with a woman having hair. There is probably some Freudian reason also. Maybe he needs dolls….but then these woman who are having full brazilians and lip injections end up looking like plastic gothic freaky dolls

  15. Ellie

    perverted sexual fetishes.

    Evil! Evil! I’m so evil! Such a bad bad, very bad girl.
    You reveal a lot about yourself, None. Repressed, restrained.
    Oooh, I said restrained!
    Add that to your list of my peverted fetishes you seem so interested in.

  16. feelthebern

    Change of subject.
    Does anyone else think Sinc looks like Phil Collins?

    Imagine actually being this old and still so childish.

  23. None

    Gee Ellie, ask yourself why nobody else here needs to prattle on about their sexual fetishes except for you, an almost 60 year old woman. I suspect it’s because you’re not getting any and you’ve never gotten any because you’re just a pain to be around.

  24. Stimpson J. Cat

    oggling women who look like prepubescent girls.

    A 30 year old Woman looks 14?
    How can you be this stupid?
    It’s uncanny.

  25. Ellie

    Am 52, None. And why are you so obsessed with my sex life? You don’t like the style with which I write scroll past me.

  26. None

    Imagine actually being this old and still so childish.

    Imagine being as old and bald like Stimpy and fancying women who look like prepubescent girls. We can play all day Stimpy but you’re still as boring as numbers.

  27. Tom

    Shy Ted at 3.21pm, it’s the measure of the gargantuan ego that decided to inflict itself on Australia in 2015 for reasons of pure vanity that I can’t be sure that you made up those quotes.

    Indeed, very disappointed.

  30. None

    Elle the only person obsessed with your sex life is you given you spend so much time telling us about it or lack thereof. No one has ever asked you about it – never once – but here you are day in day out telling us. On an economics blog. And of course if anyone ever challenges you on that you whinge like all your all boring and can’t cope with risque humour or something like that. So I will set the stopwatch and see how fast you descend into your usual victim trolling again.

  31. Stimpson J. Cat

    Just a few quick questions None.
    Do you shave your armpits?
    Do you shave your legs?
    Tell me why.
    😂

  32. None

    Interesting revelation on how you judge women, Stimpson. Just proves my point, thank you.

  33. Ellie

    I’m not here everyday, None.
    If you’ve wanted to hurt me by attacking me personally, you have. Well done.
    Have a good day.

  34. Ellie

    You’re a very nasty human being, None.

  35. None

    Well done, Elle. Record time.

    Oh, if you’re buying wigs, get me one. I might just get done up like Julia Gillard and march in the Mardi Gras, just so you’ll have two “perverts” to scold.

  53. Rockdoctor

    LOL, Toolshed. A mature age contract Geo I worked with on a Vale contract about a decade ago had an interesting life and as one of his jobs worked at the Toolshed in Oxford st. Other work he had done was being a Ferry driver and I think even a cadet Journalist. He claims to have known the owners of the Hellfire Club back in the day as well. As I said he had an interesting life.

    Oh and he knew of Albanese from Young Labor days, his words “Albanese had allies not friend….”

    As I said previously Izzie will have to distinguish his circumstances from Chief of the Defence Force v Gaynor [2017] FCA FC41.

  57. Nope. If you fancy yourself as pro gay you are obligated to teach your children gay sex

    Now that’s the best piece of rolled gold idiocy I’ve read in a long time.
    I guess it means that if I don’t get my knickers in a knot about tattoos, I should be dragging my kids down to the parlour, that if I’m OK with people riding motor bikes, I should shout all my kids Harleys, and if I am tolerant of smoking, I should be forcing them to go through two packs a day, and paying for it.

    He is indeed more than a little fucked up, Stimp, but in a binary (all or nothing) manner.
    The characteristics listed below are all relevant, but I’ve bolded the most significant –

    Death anxiety, system instability, dogmatism/intolerance of ambiguity, closed-mindedness, low tolerance of uncertainty, high needs for order, structure, and closure, low integrative complexity, fear of threat and loss, and low self-esteem.

    I reckon the intolerance of ambiguity is a bigger issue than his obsession with anal sex, but you’re correct, it is up there.

    Don’t let it bother you, Elle.

    As you and I learned forcibly last weekend, 90% of Cats are closet wowsers who can’t stand other people having fun when they’re not getting any. That, and the apparent epidemic of broken scroll buttons, is making this place quite tiresome.

    The Kiwis will surprise some, but not all in the World Cup. On form and with they talent they have (and bear in mind they haven’t played at their best yet) I reckon they’re dead-set finalists.

    The track for last night’s show between ourselves and the Bangers wasn’t a minefield given the rain in preceding days, but it was slow. Australia made the below-par Banger bowlers pay, but their batsmen are top-notch.

    To make 333, beating their total the other day to make the biggest run chase in CWC history and against a close to full strength Aussie bowling lineup (and their fielding quality) on a slowish deck is not to be sneezed at.

    All the Bangers need is a bit more mongrel in their bowling, and to stop fielding like a 1980s Paki team and they are dead set in the race.

It won’t be anything that I haven’t seen a million times before and barely worth an eyebrow raise compared to what I know and have seen and have had to deal with first hand.
    I’ve addressed Elle’s double standards before (as well as defending her at other times). She can’t at once drmand everyone should grow up and yet cry like a 2 year old when someone calls her out. I still think you’re a good egg. Have a nice life, Areff.

    If Grigory M was to begin speaking in a lawlerly fashion he would suggest that 1735099 should already have taken copies of some of today’s and yesterday’s comments by None and Cassie – they are clearly defamatory. Grigory M might further suggest – again, in a lawlerly fashion – that the comments made could well be actionable against not only the two persons making them, but also the blog owner himself.

    Unfortunately were the ice capital down here but what I think should happen is that rural communities should band together to drive out all dealers in the same way that they drove out the Bob Brown Adani convoy. Making ice stinks as though a lot of these ice houses are in country areas in rundown farm houses which Farmers rent out to nobody’s and don’t bother checking. I think if there was a concerted systematic sweep through a lot of these regional areas with local people reporting any suspicious activity you can clean up a lot of this stuff. The Next Step would be devising a really draconian punishment that will minimise cost to the community and frankly if you told me you were bringing back chain gangs I would say: damn fine idea.

    He’s right. The lies coming from the Left are endless lately. I’ve never seen anything like it.

    Newt Gingrich on anti-American sentiment: ‘The number of lies’ from the left is ‘astonishing’

    “The number of lies being told right now about the United States is astonishing,” he said. “But all Trump is doing is, he’s drawing to the surface the deep hatred which on-campus had certainly began by the middle of the 1960s and has grown and grown like a cancer.”

    Certainly has. It’s a spiritual cancer. If Trump has opened up all this festering evil to the light of day then he’s done a salutary service to the world just in doing that.

    Here’s the problem:

    Uni ‘revolution needed to save free speech’

    Bernard Lane The Australian June 20, 2019

    It will take a revolution to recover academic freedom from the groupthinking bureaucrats who exert control over corporate universities, says a physics professor sacked after going public with climate science criticism. Peter Ridd, whose academic freedom was upheld by a court in April, said the higher education sector’s claim of “no crisis” was disproved by its resistance to the French review of campus free speech.

    “(Nothing will change) unless we have, essentially, a revolution with the universities,” he says in an Institute of Public Affairs podcast out tomorrow.

    He backed Education Minister Dan Tehan’s campaign for a model free speech code suggested by former High Court chief justice Robert French.

    In April, peak lobby Universities Australia gave the French report a cool reception — warning against imposition of rules “aimed at solving a problem that has not been demonstrated to exist” — but since the May 18 election several institutions have trumpeted new pro-freedom statements.

    James Cook University dismissed Professor Ridd last year, saying it had nothing to do with his criticism of climate science methods but was for “denigrating the university” and talking about the disciplinary investigation against him.

    JCU found Professor Ridd in breach of a “no satire” order after he emailed a student a newspaper article on the investigation, with the comment “for your amusement”.

    Professor Ridd said the bureaucrats believed “they are on the side of the angels”…

    https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2019/jun/20/peter-dutton-says-women-using-and-abortion-claims-as-ploy-to-get-to-australia
    Peter Dutton has said women have been “trying it on” in claiming they were raped and needed an abortion as part of a ploy to get to Australia for medical treatment from refugee centres on Nauru.

    Speaking to Sky News, the home affairs minister claimed the women then changed their minds on arriving in Australia and sought a legal injunction to prevent their return to offshore detention.

    Dutton also confirmed a number of medevac cases have been rejected by the immigration minister, with some of those rejection then overturned by the independent medical panel, which includes the government’s chief medical officer.

    More than 30 people have been brought to Australia for medical treatment, under the recently introduced medevac laws, which were stridently opposed by the Coalition. Another 40 during the same time period have arrived under the original medical transfer process, which has brought about 1,000 people to Australia.

    Speaking to Sky News on Thursday, Dutton said “you could question whether people needed medical attention”, and accused them of simply seeking to get to Australia and obtain legal injunctions preventing their return.

    “Some people are trying it on,” he said. “Let’s be serious about this. There are people who have claimed that they’ve been raped and came to Australia to seek an abortion because they couldn’t get an abortion on Nauru. They arrived in Australia and then decided they were not going to have an abortion. They have the baby here and the moment they step off the plane their lawyers lodge papers in the federal court which injuncts us from sending them back.”


    Dutton told Sky News that the doctors who assessed patients for medical evacuation were not government appointed and many had “advocacy backgrounds”.

    Po faced deliberate lack of curiosity over the truth of the claims.
    They are so comfortable with lying by omission.

    Having mentioned Ho Chi Minh and Stalin earlier, it occurred to me just how lefties, or as they are more properly known communist scum, change definitions of things to suit their causes.

    Even their names.

    Ho was given the name Nguyen Sinh Cung at birth. In Franceland in the 1920s, bitten by the commo bug he changed his name to Quoc and then finally to Ho Chi Minh, which apparently means something like ‘Uncle with shining spirit’.

    Ioseb Besarionus dze Jughashvili, a Georgian bank robber changed his name to Stalin (Steel) once he started jockeying for power about the time Lenin thankfully carked it.

    Naturally, on seeing them for the first time in while you corner them and ask how they are.

    ‘Oh fuck man, my missus was roped when I was in jail.’ Further discussions reveal no injuries, no report, no intention to report, new kiddie.

    Cohenite the general case was fought around implied right to free political speech.

    That’s correct; here is a good summary of the issues:

    The Full Court here criticised his Honour’s approach to this issue. They said that his Honour had wrongly treated the “implied freedom” as a personal right enjoyed by citizens, when comments from the High Court required that instead it should be seen as a limit on legislative power. (See eg paras [47]-[52].) But the Full Court said that this was not a correct analysis. They explicitly rejected an argument put in terms that “the respondent has a constitutional right to express his political opinion, and by terminating his service in the ADF the appellant infringed that right” (see [65].)

    What, then, was the correct approach that should have been taken? The Full Court said that the focus should have been on the validity of the regulation under which Major Gaynor had been terminated, reg 85 of the Defence (Personnel) Regulations 2002 (Cth)- see [82]. In broad terms, the court said that it needed to determine (1) whether the regulation burdened the freedom of political communication; (2) if so, whether it was nevertheless justified. At this second stage, once the purpose of the law was identified, it was necessary (in accordance with the schema laid down by the plurality judgment in McCloy) to consider questions of suitability, necessity, and “adequacy in balance”. This last issue, they say at [92], quoting McCloy, is to be dealt with as follows:

    Adequacy in balance, said by the plurality to be the most important stage: “… compares the positive effect of realising the law’s proper purpose with the negative effect of the limits on constitutional rights or freedoms. It requires an ‘adequate congruence between the benefits gained by the law’s policy and the harm it may cause’, which is to say, a balance. … Logically, the greater the restriction on the freedom, the more important the public interest purpose of the legislation must be for the law to be proportionate” (at [87], footnote omitted).

    Izzie of course is or was not employed under the same constraints as Gaynor; in fact a relevant, even dominant, issue is whether his EA actually dealt with issues to do with free speech or whether same can be implied into his EA. In the case of Peter Ridd the court invested a powerful right to free speech into Ridd’s EA but that was in the context of intellectual freedom being an essential part of University employment. Izzie is not an intellectual as Ridd is so his right may be lessor.

    Anyway you look at it this could be an interesting case. Izzy is almost upto $350K.

    for KD.

    actually that isnt the whole story…

    A few years ago on some Saturday, she went shoe shopping in Myer Melbourne and I got dragged along because I had a weak moment with a hangover and couldn’t find sufficient reason to decline (also I have the Visa card)

    So, hung over with sunglasses in Myer furtively watching the sales clerk who was a 28-ish Polish hottie!
    The missus get boots etc and I didn’t think about it at all.

    Next morning was a beautiful morning and no kids around and so some rumpy-pumpy may have occurred…which was nice.

    She gets outta bed and is standing there in the nuddy and was going to make a coffee. She looks at quizzically and says, “were you thinking of that sales girl at Myer??? !!”

    So I slapped her on the arse and said, “Too right … now send the other one back with the coffee wench!”

    Anyways not long after that shes watching Federer and I’m in the kitchen knocking up something for dinner and she’s insistent … MT com’ere Roger is on. Come on she says get on the couch…its Roger time.
    Anyway, I twigged and started to say,” yeah orrite if you …”
    And with comic timing of gold she goes, “If yr gonna do it, you have to shut up…”
    She got nothing but she did get dinner

    So a year passes and the opportunity is there and she thinks I’ve forgotten … but I haven’t.

    Britain to use more clean power than fossil fuels for the first time in 2019

    Britain is on track to use more electricity from zero-carbon sources such as wind, solar and nuclear than from fossil fuel plants this year, the country’s National Grid said.

    Britain plans to phase out all coal-fired power generation by 2025 and further cuts in greenhouse emissions will be vital if the country is to meet the net-zero target, the government’s climate advisers have said.

    Imports play a part
    The National Grid data showed 9 per cent of Britain’s electricity during the first five months of the year came from imports from Europe via interconnectors with France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Ireland.

    More than half of these imports came from zero-carbon generation.

    The Grid said the growing number of power interconnectors with neighbours, such as nuclear power-dominated France, would help Britain further curb its fossil fuel use.

    An interconnector planned with Norway will give Britain access to Norway’s carbon-free hydropower, while also enabling Britain to export its growing wind capacity.

    The UK-Norway North Sea Link, at 720 kilometres, is the world’s longest interconnector and is expected to begin operation in 2021.

    There’s a place
    It’s the time of your life
    No parents allowed and no playing inside
    You can laugh, until you cry at Camp America

    So much fun, you lose count of the days
    Playing hide and go seek inside of your cage
    Daddy loves you, so he sent you away to Camp America

    I wanna have the best summer ever
    I wanna have the best summer ever
    I wanna have the best summer ever
    At Camp America

    It feels good, it feels great
    Hey where you going, you gotta say
    cant leave you cant wait
    to go to Camp America

    Get on the floor, get in your bag,
    lets have a drink on me, we’ll catch a wave
    pop a pill, don’t be sad
    you’re at camp America

    I wanna have the best summer ever
    I wanna have the best summer ever
    I wanna have the best summer ever
    At Camp America

    We’ll be living it up, not giving a fuck
    Splitting you up, then we put you in cuffs
    Then we shipping you off, yeah, you could get lost at Camp America
    Take your clothes off baby, let me see what you got
    We can have a good time if you’re legal or not
    Its an ignorant, arrogant, terrorist, heritage
    You can finally be an American

    I wanna have the best summer ever
    I wanna have the best summer ever

    HELL awaits Raelene Castle & Gay Qantas CEO Alan Joyce

    17 mins ago

    Fact check: at this stage probably true

  162. Knuckle Dragger

    On reflection, I think one of the most important things brought on by the whole Folau fireball is that through a combination of topic, circumstance and a refusal to surrender individual beliefs, both sporting and corporate giants have been made to tap dance like no-one has before.

    They must be stupefied. I can’t remember an occasion where a single player (yes, he’s good, pays his bills and all that but still a single player – it’s not as though he’s the Walter Lindrum or Bradman of rugby) has dead-set refused to renounce his personal beliefs so he can continue playing for a code that decided it wanted to be woke, and heavily backed by PoofAir, whose CEO demanded his staff wears rings symbolising their personal acceptance of a lifestyle that has nothing to do with their job.

    Cancel his contract, they said. Okay, he said. Naturally, this left them bewildered. Why, they thought, it’s almost as though his personal beliefs were more important than money. Than money! Outrageous!

    As much as I want the ultimate decision to go one particular way, it really doesn’t matter. Folau has not only won, but streeted it. RA is damaged beyond repair.

    And it’s a bit late, but I trust Mr Joyce, head shed of PoofAir (or PoofEire, if you prefer) has realised that it doesn’t matter if you yourself want to be as gay as the volleyball scene in Top Gun. Fine. But push your views on other little people, waving your chequebook as you do, will not end well.

    If the Gothic Swamp Donkey hasn’t got the Oberlin College decision tattooed on the inside of her eyeb#lls – not as a legal decision, but for the punitive damages where the public decided they’ve had enough of this shit – she’s got more sand up her than I thought.

    Commentary by Michelle Malkin on the Oberlin College disgrace

    As a right-wing alumna of far-left Oberlin College, I have four words for the administration in response to last week’s ground-breaking $11 million jury verdict in the defaming of humble Gibson’s Bakery:

    You had it coming.

    I have five more words for Oberlin as arrogant college officials continue their obstinate war on the Gibson family even after the much-deserved courtroom defeat:

    You still don’t get it.

    The liberal Left continue to push their radical agenda against American values. The good news is there is a solution. Find out more >>

    After the college sent out Vice President, General Counsel, and Secretary Donica Thomas Varner’s June 7 email to alumni disparaging the verdict and lying about the basis for the trial, the jury whacked Oberlin’s calumnious crapweasels with an additional $33 million in damages caused by their libel, intentional interference with business and intentional infliction of emotional distress.

    Ironically, thanks to Big Business GOP-sponsored tort reforms in Ohio 15 years ago, the awards may be greatly reduced to the relief of the radically liberal college, as Legal Insurrection blogger and law professor William Jacobson points out.

    Still, the jury’s message to administrators who incited hatred against Gibson’s is loud and clear: Stop the racial smears.

    Because white townies are presumed guilty until proven innocent, minority students and their mentors leaped to protest alleged institutional racism by a bakery that has nobly and peacefully served and employed people of all races and backgrounds since 1885.

    Social justice agitators attempted to turn three black student shoplifters into Rodney King-style martyrs and the white Gibsons into the Simi Valley police of Lorain County in late 2016.

    In August 2017, after the SJW noise died down, the trio of grabby-handed students pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges ranging from attempted theft and aggravated trespassing to underage purchase of alcohol.

    They acknowledged in statements that Gibson was within his right to detain shoplifters and all stated in court that Gibson’s actions were not racially motivated.

    But those admissions were small consolation to the Gibsons, whom the dean of students attacked publicly in knee-jerk protests immediately after the theft and whom other officials savaged privately in extensive, profanity-laced communications leading up to the bakery’s lawsuit and trial.

    Oberlin Dean of Students Meredith Raimondo put herself in the middle of the maelstrom, complete with bullhorn and flyers declaring Gibson’s to be a “RACIST establishment with a LONG ACCOUNT of RACIAL PROFILING and DISCRIMINATION.”

    Oberlin VP of communications Ben Jones lambasted the bakers: “F— em … they’ve made their own bed now.”

    And special assistant to the president Tito Reed condemned the Gibsons’ “combined audacity and arrogance to assume the position of victim” as the college sought to pressure the family into exempting all student shoplifters from criminal prosecution in exchange for restoring canceled cafeteria contracts.

    I received an even more defiant letter from Oberlin College President Carmen Twillie Ambar on June 14 vowing that “this is not the final outcome.” Ambar warns of a “lengthy and complex legal process.”

    Indeed, I’m now hearing from infuriated Oberlin insiders this week that the college persists in treating the Gibson family horribly and refuses to end the horror show, all while blithely assuring alumni that “we value our relationship with the town and region that are our home.”

    Bull.

    For decades, grievance-mongering Oberlin elites have bullied and defamed innocent white people without consequences in their multicultural Ohio enclave. False racial allegations and toxic identity politics are the bread and butter of Oberlin campus life.

    I’ve documented multiple hoaxes, stoked by Oberlin’s campus outrage industry, which have exploited fake hate by phantom white bigots to expand the affirmative action empire.

    —Back in the 1990s, Asian American students claimed that a mysterious racist had spray-painted anti-Asian racial epithets on a campus landmark rock; they used the incident to clamor for more departmental hiring. The culprit was a warped Asian American student.

    —Another Asian American student I knew accused a white library worker of racism after the poor staffer asked the triggered student to lower the blinds where she was studying.

    —In spring 1990, two black female students baselessly accused David Gibson of bigotry after he told them they were not allowed to sit at an outside table because they hadn’t purchased any food items from his store. The rule applied to everyone. The perpetually aggrieved students demanded an apology to the entire black student population.

    —In 2013, hyped by the administration and power-seeking minority groups, Oberlin made international headline news for a “KKK sighting” that turned out to be a person walking around campus wearing a blanket.

    Oberlin alum Beth Kontrabecki Walters summed it well for me in her reflections on campus life and the Gibson’s verdict:

    What was once considered a forward-thinking and prestigious institution has now become the poster child for intolerant, myopic crybabies. Oberlin should not appeal this decision. … The multimillion-dollar reward to Gibson’s is the public’s way of sending a message; it’s high time these insulated left-wing incubators put an end to the out-of-control politically correct culture. … They made an example of Oberlin, and while I agree with the jury completely, as an alum, it is extremely embarrassing nonetheless.

    Instead of reexamining its fundamental contempt for Midwest family values, entrepreneurship, the presumption of innocence, and the truth about its racial hucksterism, however, Oberlin recently announced the appointment of a new “Multicultural Resource Center” director focused on nominating future speakers for the college’s segregated black, Asian/Pacific Islander, Latinx, and LGBTQ+ students graduation ceremonies and advancing the “advocacy, equity, and belonging for marginalized students.”

    In other words: More of the same old toxic stew of anti-white activism masquerading as “education” that landed Oberlin in such humiliating legal trouble in the first place.

    The jury voted. Now it’s time for more parents, alumni, and donors of ideological insane asylums like Oberlin to vote with their own feet and pocketbooks.

    Defund the divisive defamers of American higher education. It’s the only way they’ll learn.

    Fascinating critique of the bullshit Chernobyl tv program:

    As a nuclear scientist, I can tell you that the fundamental story of the sequence of events during the portrayal of the Chernobyl accident was correct. Issues around governance and procedure as portrayed were essentially correct.

    But the blood and skin peeling scenes were not. Sadly the producers lied – intentionally, to gain box office income. They succeeded in the income goal.

    But they insulted us nuclear scientists and insulted the intelligence of those viewers who knew a bit more science than most.

    They also led many other viewers down a twisted path to further ignorance and confusion, which certainly should not be the objective of a history documentary.

    The series tended to show the Soviet authorities of the day as uncaring and unskilled. That was not true. Yes, that period of history was during the formality and the rigidity of the Soviet communist system of the era. Yes, the military-type hierarchy of the time did play a role.

    However, in reality, Russian nuclear scientists had been worrying for some time about that type of Chernobyl reactor design and had voiced concerns to the senior authorities. Albeit slow, a response was taking place. Tests of failure systems were being carried out.

    Chernobyl had been ordered to carry out one such test, to test the speed of response to a failure. So such a test was set up.

    Chernobyl staff was instructed to create a deliberate failure mode situation, to see how the reactor responded. This was arranged and was supposed to have been done in the daytime when the main skilled team was on duty.

    But the high district demands for electricity caused them to delay the test until around midnight when the lesser caliber night-duty team were on duty. In addition, the more senior decision makers in the line-of-command had gone home.

    To clip all the technicalities very short; when the intentional test procedure started to go wrong, worried Chernobyl technicians made some wrong moves and rapidly compounded the unfolding drama.

    As the reactor went out of control a fast line of communication via local HQ to Moscow did not function; the seniors had gone home.

    That reactor-type had been built to an out-of-date design containing a large amount of highly combustible graphite. It caught fire. Somebody correctly called the fire brigade.

    They responded as they should have and attacked the fire as if it were a burning woodworking factory. That was a mistake…

    The other thing about Folau and the “Go Fund Me” thing is that he should have offered donors a “payback” of funds raised I.e. donate and fund the legal case, and you will get back surplus funds plus whatever the legal settlement amounts to (less reasonable costs to himself).

    He would have a war chest of $20 million by Sunday, and the ARU would be shitting themselves.

    Who cares? Folau can keep it. I’ve been scrolling down the donations list just now. Almost all of them are less that $100. A very few of $500 here and there. The sheer number of people donating should turn RA’s cojones to ice, if they have any cojones.

    If you are thinking of donating $100, you might get $50 or $75 refunded if he wins. Donate what you can afford, send a message to these wankers administering the game, and you might get a few bucks back. Not a “sure bet” by any means, but at least you aren’t just throwing money at the bloke, and he pockets whatever gets raised. It gives the punters some “skin in the game”. Very hard for the administrators to ignore.

    Apropos of crikkit, and before it starts:

    There was talk overnight about the potential for Australia’s answer to Arjuna Ranatunga, Usman Khawaja yelling at the Bangers in their own language.

    A couple of weeks back I was doing a match where they had a few subcontinentals (Sri Lankans, I think) over for the season. Two very good spinners and a top-order bat. When fielding, and when one of the said spinners was bowling the other two were at first slip and short mid-wicket.

    And they were absolutely giving it to the batsmen verbally, but in Urdu or Farsi or whatever it was. Evidently it was piss funny also, as after what must have been a classic verbal jab they’d all dissolve in laughter, after which one or two would look back at me – presumably to see if I understood what they were on about.

    Slight shrug of the shoulders – from me = more jabbering and laughter from the Lankans, who would then switch seamlessly to English when necessary.

    Kudos and well played to those punters. I would do the exact same thing in the same circumstances.

    Who would Folau refund? I am betting he will be out of pocket regardless. Lawyers are ghoula.

  213. Armadillo

    I anal, but worth double checking.

    Lawyers do it incessantly. Percentage of the payout. That’s the whole point. Punters should be able to take the risk as well. You won’t ever be able to get 100% back, but with an “over subscription to costs”, you are going to get a % of your donation back. You would donate expecting 0% back. Anything over that is a bonus.

    Why can wealthy people like Soros and Co simply throw money at court cases close to their black hearts, and yet the average punter can’t?

    Waratahs coach Darryl Gibson has decided to call time (12mths earlier than expected) after four years in charge.

  215. Armadillo

    Who would Folau refund? I am betting he will be out of pocket regardless. Lawyers are ghoula.

    Agreed price with the lawyers. For example, I will charge $3 million to represent you in this case. NO percentage cut of the compensation (or a mixture of both, percentage of compensation and a lower fee).

    If Folau raises $20 million via “Go Fund Me”, all the punters are going to get a % of their donation back. It’s oversubscribed. He’s not going to spend $20 million, therefore the punters get back a % of their initial outlay.

    Remember, it’s a donation in the first place. Most people wouldn’t expect anything back. If they get something back, well that’s a bonus.

    Cactus just put your fake name in the first and second name fields and then type in a legit email ( active or otherwise).
    After you make your donation you’ll get an option to add comments (although they’re not being published) and also to choose whether you want your name to be shown or to come up as anonymous. Gofundme takes a cut of all donations plus a transaction fee for each donation so breaking it up into many small amounts will mean most of it will get taken up by the transaction fee). They also have the audacity to ask you for a tip on top of all that with a rather deceptive blurb which doesn’t mention their percentage can’t and their transaction fees and pre fill the tip amount with something exorbitant. To get around that just select other amount and overwrite the amount was 0. F****** they’re making a killing out of big campaigns like Izzy and I know that their costs are minimal.
