    Errr Tom the WA beaches are the best in the world, though not many who swim live to tell the tale due to sea monsters. Stay away.

    … and some of the worst beaches, Woolfe. The Pilbara coast around Dampier is rubbish and there are many, many kilometres of inaccessible coastline with nothing but vertical cliffs. But, as you more or less point out, the entire CSIRO is a greenfilth sanctuary that’s attempting to weaponize sharks against the Australian human population and goes into hysterics whenever it’s pointed out.

    Plus we don’t execute tourists like the Mexican cartels do .

    So you don’t want to be Maria’s daughter’s daddy?

    Definitely not, Cassie. For a start it would be too exhausting. I think I mentioned that she does karate classes, rather badly run ones, and we had a fight Saturday afternoon. I won, but it was close. My recapitulation of domestic bliss was brief and enervating. I still haven’t recovered.

    New York Times: ‘Social Engineering’ on Google Works

    The New York Times published an article recently outlining how Google ads can be used to influence and “socially engineer” users.

    In an article titled “I Used Google Ads for Social Engineering. It Worked,” Patrick Berlinquette the founder of the search engine marketing consulting firm Berlin SEM outlines how online advertising can be used to influence users citing a tactic known as the “redirect method.”

    Ok, not katydids. Kale only. PETA’s ads would direct you away from such species crime.

    Alison Riske is an American professional tennis player. She has won two WTA titles, eight singles titles and one doubles title on the ITF Women’s Circuit. She reached the third round of the Australian Open in 2014 and 2017, the fourth round at Wimbledon in 2019 and the fourth round of the US Open in 2013. Wikipedia

    Investors haven’t been able to get enough of Beyond Meat (NASDAQ:BYND) shares, which have continued to surge after a wildly successful — and wildly underpriced — initial public offering (IPO). As of this writing, the business sports a market cap of $5.6 billion following news that it’s building a manufacturing facility in Europe to smooth over logistics and transportation obstacles on the continent. Investors are also eagerly awaiting the announcement of first-quarter 2019 operating results on June 6.

    While the business has plenty of growth ahead of it, individual investors might want to ground themselves in reality. Barring an acquisition, Beyond Meat is trading at one heck of a premium. Shares sit at 64 times sales and nearly eight times enterprise value.

    Once it is just a vat churning out sludge that can be bulk transported on the cheap and freshness is no issue, the cheapest food will come from the place with the cheapest electricity, cheapest feedstock, cheapest workers and least expensive regulations. And no laws against copying any rival product.

    The peoples liberation army will supply soma and soylent to the world

  12. John Constantine

    The global meat market is valued at an estimated $1.4 trillion, meaning there’s plenty of market share to go around. Besides, if the upstart field is going to succeed in significantly reducing the role of animals in the food supply, then it’s going to take many companies doing their part.

    Once the big crony tech companies own sludge food factories, social media algorithms will soon hand the 1,4 trillion a year meat market to the Cronies.

    A football fan reportedly yelled “F**k you, I’m Millwall” as he single-handedly took on the three knife-wielding London terror attackers armed with nothing more than his fists.

    Roy Larner has already been hailed a hero, with a petition launched for him to be awarded the George Cross medal for his actions in the Black and Blue steakhouse on Saturday night.

    In fighting back, the 47-year-old Millwall fan gave dozens of others who were in the Borough Market restaurant the chance to escape.

    Roy Larner, 49, screamed ‘f*** you, I’m Millwall,’ as he took on knife murderers
    Has been placed on Government’s Prevent programme over fears he may become extremist
    He may have to attend de-radicalisation classes and police are monitoring him

    Why do I suspect that any actual “radicalusation” occurred a couple of years ago, when he was confronted with an actual “hate crime” in progress?

    What inflation, eyrie?
    I don’t think there’s been a year since the crisis when the Australian inflation rate has been near the target. It’s consistently been below target.

    In fact, the RBA should be criticised for being below the mandate for a very long period of time.

    Good Moaning.

    A study of a female brain.

    How fortunate for Maria that BGs fear of her STIs (and not his own genital herpes) is protecting her from having to service the flaccid smelly septagenarian.

    No fact all emotion.
    We note here that the there is general bitchiness in the statement “his own genital herpes” and apparently the young woman in question would otherwise be forced to have sex with him.
    She apparently has no choice or say in the matter.
    Obviously Dr BG has taken his zimmer frame down into the country side from the castle to bash a young maiden over the head and drag her back to his abode.

    She must be so delighted to know that she is being discussed in such terms on a foreign blog – as a potential repository for Beaugan’s dick and a source of disease.

    She has the internet as well, and using it, probably organising her thug mates to come around and do him over once she gets all he’s willing to offer for free.
    Dr BG is talking about someone we neither know nor can trace from his comments, but never let that fact get in the way of the victim scenario trying to be weaved by a sexist female.

    Bit of course only Beaugan can drmand truthfulness from his Cuban slaves while withholding it himself the two-faced coward.

    And here we were all along believing slaves were “forced”.
    Beaugan hasn’t demanded anything and isn’t withholding anything, this is purely female projection of the worst kind, slipped in amongst all the other shit written with the explicit hope of there being that much dreamed up mud thrown, some will stick.
    Pure and vile hatred, (and with very poor literacy)

    It’s not that Beaugan hasn’t given enough details to identify her either.

    He hasn’t.

    And this boys and girls is someone who likes to present himself as a gentleman. Do not wonder why no woman wanted to stay with him for life. And JC why not offer up your own mother and daughter to f*** Beaugan before you demand he f*** somebody else’s?

    This again is a sad but important example of the pure bitchiness and factless conclusion drawn by believing her own emotional bullshit before actual facts that shows us exactly why women should never be given the reigns of a nation or be in charge of much at all really.
    Especially education.

    struth,

    Word.

    And as we said yesterday, for someone who generally has a degree of common sense. The hot button issues certainly hit the hair trigger.

    I remember when she was banging on about gay porn being damaging to women. I’ve got no idea what the back story is for that belief to be formed, but it must be of Olympic standard at least.

    But yeah. Emotions.

    Normally, I’d be standing by to be called a dickless fat flaccid wrinkly no-hoper herpes-ridden bad breath-having pasty ugly vinyl belt-wearing red-headed child abuser, but I have other stuff to do today.

    Seems that Captain Cook imposed Marshall Law on Australia ,according to an Aboriginal activist who wants to take down the statues. Perhaps they can be replaced by statues of the original inhabitant who navigated the eastern coast of Australia.

    It’s 18:45 and I have just got back from trying to buy Yanet a dress, without success. Shopping with women is always a test of endurance, and this goes double for Cuban women, because the shops that sell clothes are much further apart. We shall try again on Wednesday at two o’clock.

    We walked just under two kilometres, which isn’t very far on a good surface, but that doesn’t include Cuban pavements which require one to adopt a new method of walking.

    On the way back, we stopped off at what claimed to be a Chinese restaurant. Cuban Chinese is different from English Chinese, American Chinese, Australian Chinese and in particular Chinese Chinese. Oh, and French Chinese, which was by far the best. It was ok, and much cheaper than Los Nardos. Yanet had fish and yucca and rice, I had the Hemingway plate, which was fish, shrimps and lobster. With vegetables. The last a curious mix of cabbage, beans, cabbage and cabbage. Yanet had two cans of beer and i had a revolting glass of warm white wine. Yanet also had two packets of cigarettes, which I told her was bad for her. She made a cigar smoking gesture and laughed. Somewhere I lost my moral authority on the smoking front.

    Yanet had much of her food and some of mine doggy-bagged. Maria knew the term doggy-bagged, and used it. Yanet apparently not the term but certainly the practice. Which always seems to me very sensible, and the pretence that it’s for a non-existent hound has always struck me as cowardly.

    Yanet cadged another 10 cuc for shopping for food. In Cuba, you can’t afford pride either, let alone morals.

    She told me she loved me at one point and I cheerfully repied that I didn’t believe her. This disconcerted her, but only briefly.

    I think she’d be a decent woman had she been brought up outside the poverty. She’s not bad even so. But trained to be a parasite.

    It’s a hell of a world.

    Put in $1000 in 2007. You need $1288.60 in 2018. 28.9% inflation for average annual rate of 2.3%.
    That is how we have been robbed. I was conservation in my top of the head estimate of 20%.

  27. Knuckle Dragger

    And why are people so concerned that the lady in question is identified?

    Maria. Lives in a Cuban village. Has a nose ring.

    Even on the off chance that Beaugy’s used her real name (if she’s told him her real name) that would narrow it down, to, I don’t know, 50,000 Kooba chickies?

    I suppose though, we could always ring up Cuba and tell them there’s a chick who likes wearing tracky daks with no undies and a nose ring there somewhere that’s hanging around with a bloke who like cigars and cheap ice cream.

    This international incident will no doubt be ringing in the national conscience for decades.

    Among others, the RBA inflation mandate is between 2 to 3%. Of late it’s even below the bottom of that range. Inflation is not an issue in Australia. Cash or cash deposits are not a store of wealth. Currency is a medium of exchange.

  32. Maria. Lives in a Cuban village. Has a nose ring.

    Sounds like my podiatrist is on holidays, again.

    Poached egg using soft plastic holders is dead easy.

    1. saucepan with lid – fill with 3 cm – 4cm (close to 1 inch) water, bring to boil. I like having the plastic egg bowl in at start but no egg. Don’t overfill water as egg will sink into it.

    Prior to using soft plastic bowl thingy line it with a little vegetable oil – very lightly.

    2. once boiling add egg to holder, cover lid and simmer

    3. time – 6 minutes for small egg runny. 7 minutes for large egg runny. hard – small egg 8 minutes. Large egg 9 minutes.

    Done. You can test if done by lifting egg and seeing if cooked under in middle to how you like it.

    I find it easier to remove egg holder using a small ladle and then a tea spoon to detach egg from holder.

    Toast, bacon, hash brown, tomato – and you’ve got a $15 café meal for under $5.

    I agree KD but is a government committee going to improve safety on site?

    No, but that is not the point.
    The point is that they can have a detrimental effect on safety by causing distractions.
    The first thing they do is broaden “safety” to cover all sorts of workplace culture issues.
    Toolbox meetings then end up being about NAIDOC week, multi-culti respeck with the union quota of microwaves in the crib room taking up the rest of the time.
    Real safety issues don’t get a look in.

    I hope what happened in Palmyra doesn’t happen in Sweden.

    An article in a recent Quadrant says that is pretty much what is already happening to archaeological materials in Sweden right now. The ‘lesser’ stuff is being removed from new sites or even museum holdings and unceremoniously dumped in rubbish pits. All a part of de-Viking the historical record, in deference to political correctness and the newest residents of Sweden and their own great culture.

    That said, this is an interesting find in a Vicarage near to Old Uppsala – the Vicarage placement indicating the very long duree of ‘sacred places’. Pope Gregory as early as the sixth century instructed missionaries that these sites should not be abandoned (the people wouldn’t do that) but Christianised. Horses and humans were often buried together in the European iron age, especially if they were warriors, accompanied by swords. There is at least one such grave also in Britain, containing a chariot as well.

    Combs feature in many European and British Iron Age graves. Something to do with more than adornment and ridding the hair of lice/nits. Combs seem to have had some ritual function, to do with the sanctity and the special magical nature of human hair – Rapunzel comes to mind, and beards, for Arthur’s beard was one to include in the legendary cloak made of the beards of kings. The giant Welsh Boar of legend had a special comb between his ears.

    Carts can also feature and seem to have been part of some wider belief set. Lancelot rode in a cart, there are records of carts carrying female slaves to be sacrificed in European lakes as part of some arcane ceremony, likely Druidic, archaeologists have found a miniature cart (wagon) carrying a sun disc, part of some ritual activity. Tumbrils carry on the ‘cart’ theme into medieval history and beyond to 18th century France, as does beheading (revived by Madame La Guillotine) and putting heads on a pike, which stopped in post-Elizabethan times (may have survived in a few places after that though). Beheading has a long tradition: it was popular amongst barbarian troops, and also with the Roman officer in the Riter (Rider) Stone recently found over a drain in Lancaster. He has a number of barbarian trophy heads on his saddle and is busy taking another one. Let us not forget modern times either – I’ve seen the videos of ISIS beheading captives on a river bank and throwing the bodies into the water. And signs on a Sydney Street calling for beheading of infidels in our own fair land. Atavistic indeed.

    2 to 3% gives the RBA reasonable latitude in order to avoid zero or below inflation … of the type that’s bad inflation. Zero is very problematic as it requires unconventional tools like QE. Sticky wages and prices makes this mandate important.

So I sometimes give her a pat on the bottom to show my heart is in the right place. They are rather nice girls if you can overlook their thoroughly mercenary outlook on life. I like them both.

    The want to see brown people diving cabs and when looking at throngs in the street to be able to know the mix of colours was their doing.

    Nelson, who was what you would now call, without hesitation, a white supremacist. While many around him were denouncing slavery, Nelson was vigorously defending it. Britain’s best known naval hero – so idealised that after his death in 1805 he was compared to no less than “the God who made him” – used his seat in the House of Lords and his position of huge influence to perpetuate the tyranny, serial rape and exploitation organised by West Indian planters, some of whom he counted among his closest friends.

    It is figures like Nelson who immediately spring to mind when I hear the latest news of confederate statues being pulled down in the US. These memorials – more than 700 of which still stand in states including Virginia, Georgia and Texas – have always been the subject of offence and trauma for many African Americans, who rightly see them as glorifying the slavery and then segregation of their not so distant past. But when these statues begin to fulfil their intended purpose of energising white supremacist groups, the issue periodically attracts more mainstream interest.

    The bible says murder is a crime.

    Some other things the “bible says” are prohibited (All from Leviticus) –

    Burning any yeast or honey in offerings to God (2:11)
    Failing to include salt in offerings to God (2:13)

    Cassie, what I said was that IF you comment on posts without reading half of them, THEN you can look like a pratt. This is not name calling. If your thinking is so fluffy that you can’t see the difference, we have insurmountable communication problems.

    I’m asking you to think. I did the same with Anne once, and she accused me of being creepy. I understand her reaction, from her point of view, I was trying to get her to practise an unnatural perversion.

    I hope you are at least a little smarter.

    James Grossman, the executive director of the American Historical Association, gets it right. In getting rid of the Confederate monuments, “you’re not changing history,” he said. “You’re changing how we remember history.”

    In this moment of crisis, we have an opportunity to do just that.

    Their left simply demand to change how history is remembered.

    It started in South Australia in the 1890’s and has been a gradual decline ever since.

    The hippies entering into teaching in the 1960’s really stuffed the joint from the 1970’s onwards and we are only in the last twenty odd years really feeling the effects of all this stupidity of emotion over fact.

    The answer is: none of the above. Old Testament law, as such, is not binding on Christians. It never has been. In fact, it was only ever binding on those to whom it was delivered—the Jews (Israelites). That said, some of that law contains elements of a law that is binding on all people of every place and time. Jesus and Paul provide evidence of this in the New Testament.

    Matthew’s Gospel enlightens us to Jesus’ teaching concerning Old Testament law:

    The spaminator won’t allow me to post this dreadful story of over 100 Christians murdered by is lams ists in Mali.

    Some other things the “bible says” are prohibited (All from Leviticus) –

    Some of them are actually pretty good, eg:

    Cursing the deaf or abusing the blind (19:14)
    Perverting justice, showing partiality to either the poor or the rich (19:15) [No penalty given.]

    Now if numbnuts would be good enough to put up some of the prescriptions in the fucking kor.n.

    Some funny man-made laws by way of contrast:

    When there is no urinal nearby you are allowed to urinate on the rear left tire of your vehicle

    Gold Coast bikinis must not exceed more than six square inches of material

    Conversely

    On Brighton Beach swimmers must wear a swimsuit that goes from neck to knee and covers the arms.

    No laws specifically about dickheads unfortunately so the troll can continue to bloviate.

    Just heard via the ABC that now may be the last chance to ever see a glacier in Alaska. This is because they have just had a hot summer day in Anchorage.

    The magnificent Hubbard Glacier in Alaska, one of the world’s biggest and most impressive (6 miles wide, 450 feet high and 70 miles long) is nicknamed ‘the galloping glacier’ because it is advancing at such a fast rate due to the very heavy snowfalls that have been happening in recent years as well as back in time further up its track (glaciers gain their impetus from snowfalls further up). A couple of weeks ago I was on a tin can catamaran underneath this glacier amidst an ice floe field. It was very cold and a bit scary, because as the pieces that create the ice floes fell off in great cliff-like hunks they made a sound very like thunder.

    So who is ‘fact checking’ on the ABC?

  107. struth

    your argument that women are responsible for the decline in the west is ahistorical rubbish unsupported by anything other than your feelings.

    Never said that.
    Men are responsible for the decline of the west by allowing women to bring the insanity of female feelings and hysteria into the halls of power.

  110. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    There were so many ice floes and falling hunks because the glacier is advancing so fast, faster than the floes can fall off; thus it is filling more of the bay than it used to do. The pace of the cracking is like being in the middle of a thunderstorm. That is an advancing glacier.

    Thanks Sinc.
    You’ve very neatly made my point, which is that the bible (and the Quran) are used selectively.

    Ron Pike makes that point and more in a post just now up at Quadrant, complete with three embedded Topher videos. Well worth a visit.

    Thanks for that, I’ve put it on my FB page. I started doing this as an aggregator about a year ago, and while I have few readers outside of my sister and BiL, it was mentioned to me a few weeks ago that it was appreciated and a couple of my friends encouraged me to keep putting stories up because they were never mentioned in the popular media.

    At boarding school, in Geraldton, in the early 1970’s, the indigenous students had all their boarding fees, school fees, textbooks, school uniforms, pocket money, and travel home for the holidays paid for by the taxpayer.

    A nephew mentioned this from when he was at school about twenty years ago. He said it caused more resentment among the white kids, along with the barbecues they weren’t allowed to go to, than just about any other thing going.

    They don’t care about the rights of the waterfowl of the Coorong, all they needed was a transnational treaty to sign to give them the power to do what they wanted to do.

    Donald J. Trump

    The wacky Ambassador that the U.K. foisted upon the United States is not someone we are thrilled with, a very stupid guy. He should speak to his country, and Prime Minister May, about their failed Brexit negotiation, and not be upset with my criticism of how badly it was…

    continues.

    ..handled. I told @theresa_may how to do that deal, but she went her own foolish way-was unable to get it done. A disaster! I don’t know the Ambassador but have been told he is a pompous fool. Tell him the USA now has the best Economy & Military anywhere in the World, by far…
