    Do any of these futurologists have any kind of successful record over the last, say, 15-20 years?

    Or even foresee Brexit, Trump, Morrison?

    I’m in Oz at the moment, so trust me i am all over it.

  17. A few comments whilst i am back here on the beautiful Mornington Peninsula – the fishing is wonderful, your roads are shyte, you drive like retards and everything is expensive compared to back home except lamb and beef. Which is also dear as poison here.

  18. Annabel has Crabs is off and running

  20. Delcon

    Annabel Crabb:

    “Political leader turned thought leader, John Hewson”.

  21. 1st question answered answered by hewson, a stuttering clusterfuck who should be beaten with the jawbone of an ass.

  22. Rex Mango

    Why don’t futurists get a job at the Stock Exchange?

  27. Beertruk

    Why don’t futurists get a job at the Stock Exchange?

    Lotto predictors?

  28. Rex Mango

    What’s happening with Jordan’s hair? Can’t think of a name for that look.

  29. Delcon

    Can I have a future without the ABC?

  30. Caveman

    What’s the story is there a big cross wind in the studio?

  31. Why don’t futurists get a job at the Stock Exchange?

    They would have to work more than 2 hours before they had their 1st bong.

  32. Rex Mango

    This people starving question was more relevant 30 years ago.

  33. Delcon

    No water, no food, no rain in the future.
    I’ll take all that, as long as there is no ABC as well.

  34. Woah – getting onto the climate doom, no food early in the piece.

  35. the not very bright Marcus

    Climateproof food supply ….. yep Apple’s grown in the Simpson

  36. Rex Mango

    Third of our food in the deep oceans, where the global warming has been hiding the last twenty years, brilliant.

  37. So a guy who is not a farmer, who knows nothing about cropping, has the panacea for food shortages by gardening in the city.

    You can’t make this shyte up.

  38. Delcon

    Future… Science… Oh, yous ABC peoples are so smart. Please tell us how to vote in the next election.

  39. Rex Mango

    If the world was to lose all it’s Tibetan Glaciers tomorrow, I would not lose a minute’s sleep.

  40. This people starving question was more relevant 30 years ago.

    No, it’s the climate, it’s the constitution, it’s the vibe.

    Yeah, it’s the vibe.

  41. Delcon

    Is there anything that ABC peoples don’t know?
    Do we even need a government when we have the ABC?

  42. custard

    I’m late. 54 please Carpe.

  43. Rex Mango

    Healthy eating, healthy living, sustainability, recycling and climate change. Got it.

  44. Beertruk

    Jeeeezee…all those on the panel look like they could do with a few less Macca hambergers.

  45. the not very bright Marcus

    Is this episode a new winner in the most boring one ? Even worse than the teachers ,aboriginals invented the drone episode ?

  46. Bushkid

    Well, I’m back from the wilds of country Victoria and the lovely Bass coast, and sorry we couldn’t make our orbits coincide, Carpe.

    May I please have 3 in the lotto tonight?

  47. egg_

    you drive like retards

    Third world drivers on the increase.
    Panel beaters heaven?

  48. Rex Mango

    Geez, Tom Kenneally look alike just casually blamed the USA for giving us industrial animal system of agriculture. That was a bit harsh.

  49. Rex Mango

    Hewson is gradually morphing into Hawke.

  50. Delcon

    Someone mention AOC’s Green New Deal, please! Then this episode would be perfect.

    If the world was to lose all it’s Tibetan Glaciers tomorrow

    Are they worth bottling?

  53. Rex Mango

    Double the amount of water in the land with no more dams and also double the economy via green energy. Sounds too good to be true.

  54. Beertruk

    Bugger…thats it for me. Live stream has turned to shite. I’ll read about in tomorrow. Good luck Girls and Lads.

  55. Well, I’m back from the wilds of country Victoria and the lovely Bass coast, and sorry we couldn’t make our orbits coincide, Carpe.

    Had a wonderful time at Inverloch, stayed at the RACV Resort there. Absolute 5 star service and the food was amazing.

    If you do nothing else in life have dinner and breakfast there, just magnificent.

  56. egg_

    Is the panel Musk’s B-Ark?

  57. Rex Mango

    Once someone mentions AI you know they are a loon. Stephen Hawking was petrified of them taking over the world, unless of course aliens arrived first.

  58. Delcon

    “If you hear any doubtful claim on Q&A please let us know.”

    Wait, does that mean that they were serious about all that crap which they spewed in the show until now?!

  59. Rex Mango

    AI has produced poetry, donkeys were painting paintings with brushes in their tail in the nineteenth century.

  60. Rex Mango

    Is sideways hair saying we need to write, or read science fiction?

  61. egg_

    Is Futurologist another term for bullsh1t artist?

  62. the not very bright Marcus

    I am going to look at my father’s old popular mechanics magazines…. where is my hovercar ? Bloody futuroligists let me down again

  63. Rex Mango

    No, they are the ones who will be left behind to face their doom at the zombie apocalypse

  65. egg_

    Once someone mentions AI you know they are a loon. Stephen Hawking was petrified of them taking over the world,

    A bit rich from a virtual borg, himself.

  66. Bushkid

    I’ll keep that in mind for tucker in future Carpe, I stay with friends in Inverloch, just not on the beachfront.

  67. Delcon

    Q&A is edging ever closer to cringe-worthy territory.

  68. Hewson must be getting sponsored by a tanning salon, that or he got sodomised by tan grant and the spay tan came off.

  69. egg_

    No, they are the ones who will be left behind to face their doom at the zombie apocalypse

    Ah, the hair monster will scare the zombies?

    Is Futurologist another term for bullsh1t artist?

    Yes, but a good lark because if you “predict” far enough ahead you’ll never be held to account. A bit like climate emergency predictions, really.

  71. I’ll keep that in mind for tucker in future Carpe, I stay with friends in Inverloch, just not on the beachfront.

    I was surprised how good the food was and the view over the ocean is magnificent.

  72. Rex Mango

    Hewson’s hairdresser will never be unemployed.

  73. the not very bright Marcus

    Yep .. no interruptions… bullshitera have a professional code they don’t contradict each other

  74. Rex Mango

    Back onto waste, these people are recycling fascists posing as futurologists.

  75. Rex Mango

    Imagine the future in Australia where every second child is sitting atop enormous piles of garbage, sorting it, like in the Third World right now.

  76. Rex Mango

    How’s about we go back to the future and allow everyone to have incinerators in the backyard, like the good old days. Great fun for the kids too.

  77. Delcon

    Isn’t Q&A against the Human Rights Convention?
    Wasn’t torture outlawed by the UN?

  78. How’s about we go back to the future and allow everyone to have incinerators in the backyard, like the good old days. Great fun for the kids too.

    They were great fun on cracker night.

  79. Bushkid

    That bit of coast is beautiful indeed, lots of fossils to be found too – and I don’t just mean old shielas like me!

    Speaking of fossils, is Hewson ever going to give up?

  80. Wasn’t torture outlawed by the UN?

    Yes , but verbal diarrhoea wasn’t

  81. Rex Mango

    Please Jordan buy one of these drones from Tandy and start flying yourself about.

  82. egg_

    Looks like bad hair night – including Crabb.
    In future, we’ll all have bad haircuts?
    They sent all the hairdressers on the B-Ark?

  83. Jesus Christ they are now talking about the accuracy of lost in space.

    The Jetsons are waiting with baited breath.

  84. the not very bright Marcus

    Did he just describe Thunderbird 1 … Seats one …beats in and out fast

  85. Rex Mango

    Multiple futures now from the girl at the Australian Futures Project. We are getting value for our money out of her blue sky thinking.

  86. Some hippy talking about “crises”

    Sod.Off.Swampy.

  87. Caveman

    Ha ha can’t make predictions with 100% certainty ,but but climate emergency. These futurists are shit talkers.

  88. Rex Mango

    Fear is not a good place for us to me making decisions, or taking action from. More profundity from the Oracle of Delphi.

  89. egg_

    Jesus Christ they are now talking about the accuracy of lost in space.

    What sane family would leave their 12 y.o. kid with Dr Smith?

  90. Crabb talks to Cribb, both are clueless tosspots.

  91. Rex Mango

    What newspaper did he run, Green Left Weekly?

  92. Rex Mango

    So governments won’t solve these climate problems, then why a carbon tax?

  93. What newspaper did he run, Green Left Weekly?

    Too conservative for him.

  94. Rex Mango

    Veena doesn’t waste any vowels in her surname.

  95. egg_

    What newspaper did he run, Green Left Weekly?

    Betoota Advocate?

  96. Delcon

    Why did Q&A think diversifying from politics is a good idea?

  97. Rex Mango

    Jordan’s world view is science fiction. Just ask him his favourite movie and lets watch that.

  98. egg_

    Is Nguyen auditioning for Lion King?

  99. Delcon

    Shorter questioner: “can we overcome partisanship in our politics and become all Leftists?”

  100. Rex Mango

    Hewson is not bitter at all about that 1993 election defeat, is he?

  101. Rex Mango

    Trust and information, good data about what we want, sense of nationhood, national identity and thirdly we need courageous leadership, those are the three things to fix the joint from future gal.

  102. Caveman

    Maximum age for all scientists is 16.

  103. Rex Mango

    An implicit assumption with every question and answer is that climate is the future catastrophe. These people really think outside the square.

  104. Rex Mango

    Hewson says going green doesn’t cost you money. How about being honest and saying that there is a lot of money to be made in the climate scam?

  105. Rex Mango

    Chloe Spackmann is her name. Has a certain ring to it.

  106. the not very bright Marcus

    We are an exporter of energy John

  107. Rex Mango

    Talk about short termism in Australia, cut to scarf wearer in audience looking concerned about climate.

  108. Megan

    As bad as I thought. And Hewson a thought leader? That requires more than two brain cells whcih rules him out immediately.

  109. egg_

    Will Futurologists be replaced by AI?

  110. Rex Mango

    How about someone asks Hewson about the Ferrari he used to own and it’s impact on climate.

  111. Megan

    Is Futurologist another term for bullsh1t artist?

    Yes.

  112. As bad as I thought. And Hewson a thought leader?

    Yes if by thought leader you mean a sign on the door that says “undies go on the inside” and “Socks, then shoes.”

  113. Rex Mango

    Yep, Tom Kenneally dude is mad as march hare and now just chattering about clean green mush.

  114. Megan

    Yes if by thought leader you mean a sign on the door that says “undies go on the inside” and “Socks, then shoes.”

    Still at least three levels above his pay grade.

    It’s an effing trainwreck.

  117. Rex Mango

    Someone should tell sideways hair that automatic watches existed in the 1940s.

  118. Wow the guy with the pillow hair or glue ready head is a total fuckwit … I wish he would boil himself in recycled oil !

  119. Rex Mango

    Storing energy is always the problem. How about these future thinking types examine the fuel tank for storing energy?

  120. John Constantine

    In the old days, when a clusterfuck commo State lost the ability to feed the proles meat, it was a sign of failure.

    This time, a few bribes and memes sees the peasants demand to be meat-free, to be saved from meat by the State.

    Mass import the recycled sewrage ration bars from the chicom slave labour factories, doped up with addictive soma. Australia, the lucky country.

  121. Rex Mango

    Hewson onto the first Australians. That would be the millennials of 1901, who are all dead.

  122. Delcon

    Hard to believe that John Hewson and Malcolm Turnbull vote Liberals.

  123. Rex Mango

    Between Hewson and Turnbull, if you combined their votes, you would get a total of 3 for the liberal party.

  124. egg_

    Did Veena Swallowharder learn English from Arnold Schwarzenegger?

  125. Well that was a tragic trainwreck

    Interruptions came in at 7 Jackpot time troops.

  126. Bushkid

    Thanks Carpe, ‘nite all.

  127. the not very bright Marcus

    Thanks all

  128. Ben

    Crabb: Government can dictate what we eat? How? Where do I sign us all up? Can I make it happen now? I can like totally do that!

    Sideways hair has just reinvented the solar powered pocket calculator in 2019.

    His technological ignorance seemed to embarrass even the other panellists.
