    No jupes. But reading today’s Hun makes you shake your head.

    ‘The 4 Olyroos banned for bringing the game into disrepute following an Olympic qualifying game in Cambodia can play club football this weekend.
    Melbourne City pair Lachy Wales and Nathaniel Atkinson, Adelaide United’s Riley McGree and Perth Glory’s Brandon Wilson are free to line up for their A-League sides.
    The four were all hit with lengthy national bans by FFA on Tuesday after breaking curfew on tour eight months ago.
    It is alleged one of the players invited a woman to their hotel room in Phnom Penh after making contact on Tinder.
    They are believed to have had consensual fornication.
    There was no suggestion of any assault or coercion.
    Wales, Atkinson and Wilson have been banned until August 10 and will miss the Tokyo Olympics. McGree has been suspended until April 1.
    The players have until next week to appeal.’

    Now FMD. Unless the girl was actually a ladyboy, then what on God’s green earth is the problem? Another example of rank stupidity by those purporting to run our sporting codes.

    Zulu, were the ATO contacting you regarding debt?

    How was the ATO treating the debt owed?

    It was one of those bureaucratic pieces of nonsense – if you ran a farm and had an “off farm income”, and the farm ran at a loss, you carried the loss forward, until you showed a profit, but you paid tax on the off farm income. You could apply to the Commissioner for a “special ruling” enabling you to offset the loss made, against the off farm income. If you behaved as though you were dealing with mentally deficient, small children, you had a good chance of success.

    The daughter of Britain’s “first gay dads” spoke out about her parents’ split on Monday, saying she’s happy one of her dads has found love with her ex-boyfriend.

    Saffron Drewitt-Barlow, 19, is totally fine with her dad Barrie Drewitt-Barlow taking up with 25-year-old Scott Hutchison, whom she used to be linked to, she wrote in an Instagram post.

    “Scott is one of my best mates and I am happy that he and daddy can finally feel comfortable enough to talk about their relationship,” Saffron wrote in a post shared by Barrie.

    The teenager revealed that things were never romantic with Scott, and that she was only pretending to date him to keep his sexuality secret after he came out to her years ago.

    I would say the bureaucracy often cops blame that should be laid at the feet of politicians.

    Look at the backpacker tax. Parliamentarians only show up for a few weeks a year, then finally thrash something out in December and want new rules from Jan 1. So six months of the financial year certain visa holders have their income taxed at different rates and the ATO has to explain to a 21 year old back in Tokyo why they still owe the ATO money.

    Indigenous Affairs Minister Ken Wyatt says “it’s easy to tear apart history if you have a view that is contrary to the way in which the stories have been told and re-told”.

    It comes amid doubts surrounding author Bruce Pascoe and his book ‘Dark Emu’ after evidence came out suggesting what is printed in the book is untrue.

    “If I was reading that book for analysis, I would have sought to have a discussion with the author, look at the sources and had the discussion around where were those sources, are there other alternative sources used and not cited,” Mr Wyatt told Sky News on Thursday.

    “I know Bruce and he has an incredible knowledge of that history and he would have reference sources he thought were credible.

    “We never say to a Jewish person to demonstrate your Jewishness… but we tend to do that frequently in our country with Indigenous Australians.

    News Corp executive chairman Rupert Murdoch has said “there are no climate change deniers around I can assure you” after he was asked at the corporation’s AGM why his company gives them “so much airtime” in Australia.

    Murdoch was speaking in New York on Wednesday when he received a question from a proxy for Australian activist shareholder Stephen Mayne….

    Hoolocaust not unique: eco-warrior Roger Hallam disowned

    AP
    7:37PM November 21, 2019
    No Comments

    One of the British eco-warriors who founded Extinction Rebellion has been disowned by his allies and rebuked by the German government after insisting there was nothing “unique” about the Hoolocaust.

    Roger Hallam created a schism in the radical protest movement on Wednesday with an interview with the German newspaper Die Zeit in which he described the Third Reich’s systematic murder of six million Joows as “just another f..kery in human history” and said genocide was “almost a normal occurrence”.

    The comments drew a swift rebuke from German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas, who called the industrial-scale murder of Joows “uniquely inhuman”.

    “We must always beware of this to ensure: never again!” Mr Maas wrote on Twitter.

    German Greens co-leader Robert Habeck told the newspaper Bild “there must be no place for anti-Semitism or downplaying of the Hoolocaust”.

    Mr Habeck urged Extinction Rebellion — known for its disruptive protests such as road blockades — to distance itself from Hallam.

    more startling insight from one of our publicly funded broadcasters, ie Special Broadcasting Shite; a small extract from the article
    .
    .
    Why do Australia’s bushfire defences rely on tens of thousands of volunteers?
    You might be tempted to think that the situation is clear-cut: a lack of government funding for services in rural areas. But the reality, as it turns out, is complicated — it involves the size of our country, the history of volunteer firefighting, and the unpredictable nature of bushfires.
    In fact, a number of former fire service chiefs told The Feed that relying on huge reserves of volunteers is the best way to fight bushfires. Here’s why.
    How do you fight a bushfire?
    According to Stuart Ellis, a former Chief Officer of the Country Fire Service in South Australia, there are two main reasons why the majority of Australia’s bushfire firefighters are volunteers.
    For one, even as fire seasons intensify, the need for firefighters at any one time will vary across Australia. It’s difficult to predict when and where the largest bushfires will be — even once fires start, a shift in wind direction can rapidly change things.
    “When volunteers are required, they need to be present in significant numbers and often close to the areas where the fires will occur,” Ellis explained to The Feed.
    “They bring with them local knowledge and familiarity and expertise in the local fuels, weather conditions and topography.”

    The Australian economy is “weak”, with households weighed down by slow wages growth and higher taxes, the OECD has declared in a report that backs lower interest rates, calls for more government spending and paves the way for unconventional monetary policies.

    Regarding the bribery charge, I simply don’t get it.

    Is that Trump bribed Zelensky, or that Zelensky bribed Trump?

  58. Colonel Crispin Berka

    Here’s something fun and educational and very topical.
    The plan to subvert the State’s rights of the Electoral College!

  59. 2dogs

    Oh, I see – the Democrats are alleging that Trump demanded a bribe from Zelensky.

    This requires that having a criminal investigation into one’s political opponents is of “value personally”.

    There is a big problem with such a view, to see this note that house Democrats are currently engaged in a criminal investigation into their political opponent. This is must therefore be of “value personally” to them.

    Since they are using public owned resources to do this, they are therefore using public funds to obtain that which is of “value personally” to them.

    So if Trump is guilty of bribery by this measure, then house Democrats are guilty of embezzlement.

  60. 2dogs

    I would be prepared to accept that Trump was wrong in these dealings if it could be shown that he was, in general, biased in seeking criminal investigations against Democrats.

    The charge would then be official misconduct rather than bribery.

    The Democrats in this case need more evidence: they need to show where Republicans have been as bad or worse and Trump has done nothing.

    Deval Patrick cancels presidential campaign stop after two people attend (21 Nov)

    Deval Patrick, former Massachusetts governor and a recent entry into the 2020 Democratic presidential race, canceled a campaign event on Wednesday after only two people showed up.

    Mr. Patrick was slated to speak at the historically black Morehouse College in Atlanta Wednesday, but CNN reported he axed the event when “he arrived and learned that he would not have an audience.”

    Which is fun since the following article came out Wednesday:

    Endorsement or not, Deval Patrick is Barack Obama’s guy (Boston Herald, 20 Nov)

    There is no question that Patrick is Obama’s candidate, no matter what either man says publicly. There is no way Patrick, who was working for Bain Capital, would be running if it were not for Obama and his small circle of friends pushing him. These people are also friends with Patrick.

    These include Michelle Obama, Valerie Jarrett, a close friend of both Obamas, Susan Rice, David Axelrod, Obama’s longtime strategist and adviser, and Obama himself. All have urged Patrick to run in the past.

    Doesn’t look like the golden glow is rubbing off onto Deval.

    For those with short memories (and the attention span of goldfish) – Special Counsel Robert Mueller found Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election using hacking and propaganda intended to sow discord, boost Trump’s candidacy and smear Hillary Clinton.

    Twelve criminal charges were brought against Russian intelligence officers, accusing them of covertly monitoring employee computers, planting malicious code and stealing emails and other documents.

    Now as the heat is applied, Trump and his acolytes are asserting that this stuff happened, but it was the Ukrainians, not the Russians, responsible.

    Mark A, if you bought it through EBay it is quite simple. Contact the sender through eBay telling them that it is not what you ordered and what are they going to do about it. If they say send it back ask for a return packing coupon from them or your money back. If they don’t want to know complain to eBay. EBay will look at the correspondence and sort it out. If ordered directly go through PayPal and if paid by credit card go to your provider. Done it all three ways. Get even not angry.

    Thanks Jo, been there done that.

    It’s happening more and more lately and I have been successful with PayPal once. but not other times due to the terms and conditions of the vendor. They specify the carrier usually DHL and the type of packaging they require, regardless of who or what they themselves use. Making it so expensive as to turn you off proceeding.

    I’m really fuming because the substitutes are so obvious and blatant, they think the buyer is a moron not to notice.

    Yes I sent off an email straight away, not sure about the coupon, have to read the terms.
    Buying online is very convenient to me and it used to be no hassle.
    This is the third time in a months that I’m being cheated, the first two I let go because of the small amounts involved and the difficulty dealing with the vendor.

    I still put in a complaint of course but this time it’s a reasonable amount and I’m p…sd off too, so I pursue it as far as I can.

    Apple Canceled ‘The Banker’ Premiere Amid S3xual Abuse Claims Against Real-Life Subject’s Son

    Cynthia and Sheila Garrett allege they were assaulted by their half-brother Bernard Garrett Jr., the son of the subject of the drama.

    On Nov. 5, Bernard Garrett Jr. was onstage at an entertainment industry event with George Nolfi, who directed the new Apple original movie The Banker. The film tells the story of Garrett Jr.’s. father, a black man who recruited a white man to front his growing financial business some six decades ago in a pre-Civil Rights Act America. Garrett Jr., initially billed as a co-producer of The Banker, was supposed to be one of its faces, along with stars Samuel L. Jackson and Anthony Mackie, during the film’s press tour.

    Since the Nov. 5 event, though, Garrett Jr.’s credit has disappeared from publicity materials, further appearances have been canceled, and on Wednesday the film’s Thursday night AFI Film Festival premiere was scrapped by Apple.

    Elon Musk’s father has baby with step-daughter he has known since she was four

    The father of Elon Musk, the billionaire tech entrepreneur, says it was “God’s plan” for him to have a baby with his own stepdaughter.

    Errol Musk, 72, described the 10-month-old baby boy he had with Jana Bezuidenhout, 30, as “exquisite”.

    He married her mother Heide when Jana was four but told The Sunday Times he did not consider her to be his stepdaughter because she had been raised away from the family for long periods of time.

    He had two children with Ms Bezuidenhout’s mother before divorcing after 18 years of marriage.

    He said Jana had contacted him last year after splitting up with a boyfriend.

    How The Oral Polio Vaccine Can Cause Polio

    Just last month, the World Health Organization announced that two of three strains of polio had been eradicated. It’s been one of the great success stories of modern medicine. The disease, which, of course, can lead to paralysis, has been reduced to just a handful of cases around the world. But now scientists say there’s been a troubling setback. One of the vaccines used to prevent polio has actually been causing some people to get polio.

    “If Bruce tells me he’s Indigenous, then I know he’s Indigenous.”

    Any negotiations of a ‘Treaty” are going to be funnier then a circus, if that’s what it takes to be considered “indigenous.”

    I suspect that most families long established in the bush and rural small towns are likely to have a “touch of the tarbrush” somewhere in their background. Lots of bushies should just claim to have such, and join the negotiations. That is what the fascist left would do, indeed, almost certainly are now doing, and will continue to do.

    BTW, can someone identify when stating that someone had a “touch of the tarbrush” ceased to be a grossly offensive remark, and failing to recognise claims to have such became an eeeevil waaacist act?

    Mr Dennis outlines that a key issue regarding the definition of offensive from the perspective of a criminal defence lawyer is that the word “calculated” means “intended,” as it is much harder for the prosecution to prove that offensive behaviour was intended to be so…

    The wife, then aged 36 and the husband, then aged 67 met over the internet in mid-2006. At the time that they met, the wife was not living in the country of her birth and her English language skills had been informally acquired. She had no children and no assets of any substance. The husband however was an Australian property developer with assets worth at least $18 million. He was divorced from his first wife, and had adult children

    Following their courtship, the wife travelled to Australia with the husband in February 2007 and moved into his penthouse. On 26 September 2007, with their wedding scheduled for 30 September 2007, the wife and the husband signed a Financial Agreement (“the September Agreement”). It provided that the wife was to receive a total payment of $50,000 plus CPI in the event of a separation after at least 3 years of marriage. There were some other provisions of a testamentary nature which provided for the wife to receive a penthouse worth up to $1.5M, a Mercedes and a continuing income in the event of the husband’s death “prior to either party signing a Separation Declaration following separation”.

    An investment firm linked to Hunter Biden received over $130 million in federal bailout loans while his father Joe Biden was vice president and routed profits through a subsidiary in the Cayman Islands, according to federal banking and corporate records reviewed by the Washington Examiner.

    Financial experts said the offshore corporate structure could have been used to shield earnings from U.S. taxes.

    Rosemont Capital, an investment firm at the center of Hunter Biden’s much-scrutinized financial network, was one of the companies approved to participate in the 2009 federal loan program known as the Term Asset-Backed Securities Loan Facility, or TALF.

    Imagine if Trump’s son got a lucrative board position on the most corrupt company in one of the most corrupt countries on Earth and then Trump withheld aid until the investigating prosecutor was fired, AND SAID SO ON TAPE. AND his son also took 1.5 billion from the chicoms.
    Unbelievable that this thing is even the basis for anything but Biden going away and hiding under a rock and the democrats shutting the fuck up about it and hoping it blows over.

    A new Emerson poll finds President Trump’s approval has increased in the last month with 48% approval and 47% disapproval, a bounce from 43% approval in the last Emerson National poll in October. Support for impeachment has flipped since October from 48% support with 44% opposing to now 45% opposed and 43% in support. The biggest swing is among Independents, who oppose impeachment now 49% to 34%, which is a reversal from October where they supported impeachment 48% to 39%.

    Boambee Joan-
    had an interesting talk on this with Aaaartist Mike Parr, in Perth in the 90’s.
    The tar-brush itself was hot bitumen, taken along the trenches in a double-boiler can and applied to wounds as a cauterising sealer- mentioned in dispatches from the Great War, and also Crimea and the Boer. But the original “touch of the tar-brush” only gained overgropund currency after WW2, when the medicals who had witnessed previous trauma used it as a euphemism for shell-shock, which is now recognised as PTSD- to say a patient has had a touch of the tar-brush then was to imply the distress of an older injury which might not be physically apparent. “touch” here is of a part with “tapped” – ie a light blow, but to the head, and the mind.
    I don’t know exactly when it took on it’s all-eclipsing racialist slanderous quality- long before booing an entitled mixed-race whinging stager became racist. When Parr first heard it muttered behind his back it was the 80’s, and he thought of the racial implications rather than the obvious loss of his arm.

    When I was a young man I carried my pack
    And I lived the free life of a scholar
    From the great Kedron Park to the dusty outback
    I spruiked the virtues of squalor

    Then in 1967 my country said son
    Your can finish your course, but there’s work to be done
    So they deferred me a bit, then gave me a gun
    And they sent me away to the war

    And the band played Waltzing Matilda
    As the wheels lifted into the air
    And above all the tears and the shouts and the Cheers
    You could still hear me yelling “NOT FAIR!”

    How well I remember that terrible day
    When the globe on the projector exploded
    And how in the hell could they expect me to play
    The Feature that I’d just locked and loaded
    The Q store was packed, I’d done my job well
    I’d lectured the Regulars, and taught them to spell
    But as for a globe, it’d all gone to hell
    I wished I was back in Australia

    But the band played Waltzing Matilda
    As the Diggers displayed their despair
    They’d done all this time, the dirt and the grime
    Only to sit there and stare

    Now those of the left, we did our best to survive
    In a Right Wing war founded on fear
    And for five long months I kept myself alive
    Until I snagged a job in the rear

    Then the big date arrived, knocked me arse over head
    My old path was now free to be tread
    But for the next 50 years, others wished THEY were dead
    Now THEY know there are worse things than dying

    And no more I’ll go Waltzing Matilda
    The notion itself, unrealistic
    For to wonder this land, climb a rock and just stand
    Seems to me, horribly Imperialistic

    Westpac seem to be guilty of being slack.The horror headlines initially read that the whole 23 million transactions were illegal,and that $11B was involved in these transactions.

    Now it turns out that possibly 12 people or transactions are involved, totaling some $150,000.

    The main concern is that Westpac did not install software that facilitated detection of dodgy overseas transactions.
    Westpac themselves informed Austrac of a dodgy transaction and the follow up revealed that Westpac had been slack.

    The CEO just said that they would not defend the charges and expects the fines to be in the $Billions.

  161. Johno

    Now it appears that there were 3,000 transactions over a period of three years. $500,000 all up.

    Seems like overkill.

    Indeed. But what we see is the Dems going on the attack. Marvel at the chutzpah. They are arguing that the corruption involving Hunter Biden gets a pass because his dad is a potential presidential candidate and that any investigation of Hunter would also involve Joe and that as this would ‘personally’ advantage Trump is ‘impeachable’.

    N.B. The chutzpah is mitigated because they can only engage in such a strategic feint and lie because the MSM is all-in too, but this is where we are right now, politically and culturally.

    Re Quaintarse delays.
    I have had a cursory look at some background info.
    I can’t see any Sydney Airport runway closures specifically for cross-wind over the last couple of months.
    The cross-wind component for a 737 (ie the maximum wind at 90 degrees to runway direction) is 35 kts.
    Starting to look and do some calcs. For example, if the wind is above 35 kts but not at an angle of 90 degrees to the runway, it can still be OK.

    I am not seeing any consistent winds that would warrant a delay.

    Lying xunts is my conclusion.

    I’m reposting this in case it was missed late last night. Senior Qantas retiree went out on a high note that cross-winds over the past four months are da worst evah due to da climate.

    Kudos to Leigh Lowe for doing original research and calling out this major climate lie and liar.

    Also to Beer Whisperer for adding that winds are in part a function of the earth’s rotation, and therefore not another miracle of climate change science that has rapidly come upon us.

    Yesterday in Victoriastan was a typical late-spring early-summer day – 36-39C – with a northerly wind thrown into the mix and the media hysteria was inter-planetary.

    The entire government and media fucktard industrial complex warned us that Ash Wednesday would rain down on us again. Of course, nothing happened. It was just a hot day, with a red desert dust storm in Mildura – typical when the northerly comes up.

    This morning, the rip-and-read radio news came up with the ludicrous fantasy, evidently fed to them by the political activists in the weather bureau, that yesterday was the hottest November day in Victoriastan since 1894.

    We will probably have to wait several days for the construction of this lie to be exposed by Jo Nova, who’s up to her neck in the latest climate lies of the CSIRO and the loony left.

    The news media – especially the TV networks — are the enemy of the people.

    I don’t see that ‘touch of the tar brush’ has necessarily to do with any military usage re wound cauterizing, which was used as far back as in Roman and Saxon times to deal with sword amputations in battle, or as punishment. Tar was a common substance used in building and shipbuilding and in many other ways.

    The term likely arose simply out of the reference it made to a small amount of ‘blackness’ in the gene pool. If you look at this list of ethnic slurs, the skin colour themes are many. It is an interesting terminological list, and accompanied by links to other lists. Reminds me of Hairy being asked by an old Cambridge friend to contribute some Australianisms to a collection of such terms the friend was preparing for publication. He obliged with what had clearly been some choice results of his listening ear in many an Aussie pub.

    Another day, another testimony on Capitol Hill completely destroying weak GOP defences. Fiona Hill tells Devin Nunes to his face that the Crowdstrike stuff is nonsense.

    M0nty – LOL. You really shouldn’t believe your own propaganda.

    Fiona Hill Worked with Christopher Steele, Author of Russia ‘Dossier’

    Fiona Hill, the former National Security Council (NSC) official who is testifying in Thursday’s impeachment inquiry, admitted in her closed-door deposition to having worked with Russia “dossier” author Christopher Steele.

    Fiona Hill Penned Washington Post Op-ed Against Giving Ukraine Weapons in 2015

    Dr. Fiona Hill told the impeachment inquiry Thursday that she was concerned that a hold on aid might endanger Ukraine’s security. But in a 2015 Washington Post op-ed, Hill argued against giving Ukraine any lethal weapons.

    Aaany day now…
    FISA report due 9 Dec. We’ll see what that says, given Steele and Hill are neck deep in the conspiracy.

    ROFL.

    Sondland’s ‘bombshell’ turns out to be merely his ‘presumption’

    Asked outright, “No one on this planet told you that President Trump was tying aid to investigations. Yes or no?”, he answered, “Yes.”

    The followup: “So you really have no testimony today that ties President Trump to a scheme to withhold aid from Ukraine in exchange for these investigations.”

    Sondland’s answer: “Other than my own presumption.”

    A fertile imagination! Possibly he was also imagining what might happen to his business if he said the wrong thing.

    ‘Witness Intimidation’: Democrat Ends Boycott of Sondland’s Hotels After He Testifies

    Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR) officially ended his boycott of the hotel chain owned by U.S. Ambassador to the E.U. Gordon Sondland after he testified against President Donald Trump in Wedesday’s impeachment inquiry. Blumenauer had encouraged the public to boycott Sondland’s Provenance Hotels until he testified.

    Sondland seems to have threaded the needle successfully, although I haven’t heard whether any of his hotels have burned down yet.

    Forgot to link, and forgot to say that Hairy’s friend was compiling an international listing of terms for matters sexual. Must be getting forgetful, as lately I lost two things I was supposed to be carrying. First one was my favorite black-specked very light Amarni jacket and the second one was my favorite Coles freezer bag. The jacket was lost down at Watsons Bay while I was waiting for a ferry, and I thought I would never see it again. Six hours later it turned up blown by the wind from a picnic table where I’d placed it while waiting for the ferry. It had lain unnoticed and undisturbed against a low stone wall under some bushes, remaining there whilst the crowds of visitors meandered around, thinking its Italian material must have been a bit of old rag or black plastic. What a come down for Armani!! I wore it home then, for it wasn’t even dirtied from the leaf litter it nestled amongst.

    The Coles cold bag I left on the ferry and am sure I will never see it again. It was light blue and dark blue stripes and very smart, as far as $3 Coles bags go. If you find it, consider it yours. 🙂

    Yes Lizzie, Coal tar is still used for washing and treating skin diseases. It makes the skin go brown for a while.

    That seems a far more likely origin for the modern saying of ‘a touch of the tar brush’. Brown skin will out in the ‘whitest’ of families, etc, was the thinking. There used to be a general myth that aboriginal ‘blood’ always ‘watered down’ with ‘white blood’, and thus you didn’t get genetic surprises at birth with a ‘throwback’ that it was believed could be the case with ‘Negro blood’, back to the fifth generation, the old wives would whisper.

    I haven’t a clue whether there is any genetic reality to those beliefs. I suspect not. Such fears became exaggerated too by the ‘passing’ for white that many with some African heritage did in the US, dominated by ‘colour’ memes as it was in the post-Civil War era. The old movie ‘Pinky’ expressed some of these fears and concerns.

  194. First one was my favorite black-specked very light Amarni jacket and the second one was my favorite Coles freezer bag.

    I for one don’t believe Fiona Hill’s testimony should be dismissed lightly. It simply screams honesty.

    When former National Security Council official Fiona Hill testifed before the House Intelligence Committee, she said that she could not remember the name of the Ukraine director when she joined the White House.

    That person was Eric Ciaramella, the career CIA analyst who is alleged to be the Ukraine whistleblower.

    It’s a safe assumption she’s very accomplished.

We came back on the slow ferry six hours later which by that time went via Circular Quay. It was dusk when I said to Hairy there was no point looking for the jacket and his sharp eyes spotted it! My excuse for leaving the Coles bag behind is that I had taken the opportunity to become three sheets to the wind on the host’s jug of Margueritas, because we’d taken the ferry in order to avoid driving (and I of course am always the sober driver). It is very easy to remember only one’s handbag when trying to achieve the appearance of normality going down a gangplank. 🙂

It was far far better than the day I lost the diamond ear-ring Hairy had not long before given me. Sending my Coles bag to the four winds of fate was also a not inconsiderable sadness to me. It was only six months old and had never been used for shopping, just storage.

    Yes Lizzie, Coal tar is still used for washing and treating skin diseases. It makes the skin go brown for a while.

    Coal tar contains phenol, which was the antiseptic that Lister used in his groundbreaking surgery work. Phenol has appreciable solubility in water, so using a coal tar based water wash would be a pretty good means to control bacterial infection.

    Wiki:

    Phenol was discovered in 1834 by Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge, who extracted it (in impure form) from coal tar.[38] Runge called phenol “Karbolsäure” (coal-oil-acid, carbolic acid). Coal tar remained the primary source until the development of the petrochemical industry. In 1841, the French chemist Auguste Laurent obtained phenol in pure form.[39]

    In 1836, Auguste Laurent coined the name “phène” for benzene;[40] this is the root of the word “phenol” and “phenyl”. In 1843, French chemist Charles Gerhardt coined the name “phénol”.[41]

    The antiseptic properties of phenol were used by Sir Joseph Lister (1827–1912) in his pioneering technique of antiseptic surgery. Lister decided that the wounds themselves had to be thoroughly cleaned. He then covered the wounds with a piece of rag or lint[42] covered in phenol, or carbolic acid as he called it. The skin irritation caused by continual exposure to phenol eventually led to the introduction of aseptic (germ-free) techniques in surgery.

    Phenol also kicked off the Age of Plastic with the invention of Bakelite in 1907.

    In case anyone mistakes the impeachment inquiry for due process:

    But despite speaking with 17 witnesses behind closed doors, including 12 witnesses in just a week of public testimony, Democrats have not obtained crucial documents or spoken with several key officials because the White House and State Department have refused to comply with subpoenas.

    Pelosi:

    “They keep taking it to court and no, we’re not going to wait until the courts decide,” she said. “That might be information that’s available to the Senate in terms of how far we go and when we go, but we can’t wait for that because again it’s a technique. It’s obstruction of justice, obstruction of Congress, so we cannot let their further obstruction of Congress be an impediment to our honoring our oath of office.”

    Pelosi added: “We cannot be at the mercy of the courts.”

    Shorter: “Fuck legal process, we’ve got hearsay. And lots of it.”
    Hardly scary at all.

  213. Things Nancy Pelosi cannot be at the mercy of:

    Pelosi is a dreadful old frightbat. I prefer Germaine Greer in the old frightbat stakes. Watched her recently going on about the bad time corporate men have and how no-one, especially women, should envy their lives. She’s ten football fields of goalpost shifting in any interview, but she’s still entertaining, mentally lively and her facial expressions are so good you wish she had taken more care of her skin. She distinguishes sex and gender but separates them completely, which for me is wrong as you can’t do that, although it is perfectly possible to recognize a conditioning to be feminine. She admits that some men do see her innate female/feminine side too (she can be quite cute albeit hardly logically consistent about that). At the conclusion of this interview she wanders into a reverie on androgyny which goes nowhere though.
