    As to yon video Stimpy…
    Can’t trust a video edit. I could at best assume that Hazza had introduced her as the vid progressed- still bad form not to do it straight up.
    But there was much shoulder-shrugging, eyelash-batting, and head-shaking from Meggan so I don’t reckon she brought much to the conversation.

    New thread, eh?

    Latest Twitter outrage is that actor Vince Vaughn needs to be cancelled because he was filmed having a polite chat to Trump during a national championship game.

  19. dover_beach

    From the OOT:

    The Trudeau government has accepted a court ruling that Canadians should not have to be near death to qualify for medical assistance to end their lives but it is now considering whether other hurdles should be imposed to guard against abuse.

    The possibility of new eligibility requirements was revealed Monday as the government launched a two-week public consultation on how best to respond to a September court ruling that concluded it’s unconstitutional to limit the right to assisted death to those whose natural deaths are “reasonably foreseeable.”

    No one could have ever guessed!

    He’s been well-known as a Republican, but not being rude to Trump (let alone talking to him and shaking his hand) is a bridge too far for most Lefties. He certainly hasn’t been a vocal MAGA like James Woods or Adam Baldwin.

    I believe he’s actually described himself as libertarian, but a lot of Republicans feel safer just saying that.

    Meteorite contains the oldest material on Earth: 7-billion-year-old stardust

    … in a meteorite that fell fifty years ago in Australia, scientists have now discovered stardust that formed 5 to 7 billion years ago-the oldest solid material ever found on Earth.

    “This is one of the most exciting studies I’ve worked on,” says Philipp Heck, a curator at the Field Museum, associate professor at the University of Chicago, and lead author of a paper describing the findings in PNAS. “These are the oldest solid materials ever found, and they tell us about how stars formed in our galaxy.”

    The materials Heck and his colleagues examined are called presolar grains-minerals formed before the Sun was born. “They’re solid samples of stars, real stardust,” says Heck. These bits of stardust became trapped in meteorites where they remained unchanged for billions of years, making them time capsules of the time before the solar system.

    Seven billion, seven billion, yay!
    My dad once gave me a meteorite he found on the Nullabor Plain, asking could I have it assayed? We had a full analytical lab. I didn’t because I couldn’t think of an excuse. But it was obviously a nickel-iron meteorite so not especially interesting, although a polished section would look cool. I think he’s forgotten he asked. I still have the meteorite.

    Well yes…and that is why the current monarch is so well respected….but when you have that comical couple “Ginger & Megs” and Ginger’s father Charles running around pontificating and lecturing us mere mortals…the monarchy will tumble..which is what the left want. A successful monarch has to reign by example. I think that Wills and Kate are okay but that is only because I get the impression that Kate is sensible and she hails from middle England.

    And the neo-Marxist Ginger & Megs….cartoon characters that they are….aren’t going anywhere….they just want out of the UK and all the boring bits. What they want is to become the “it” Hollywood Royals….and they will continue their sanctimonious pontificating and preaching…..hopping onto private jets, having $500,000 baby showers and so on. They will create a foundation to spruik money from various fools…governments, corporations and individuals…so they can have a font to slurp money from…because they will need to support their lavish lifestyle…and the foundation will quickly earn an unsavoury reputation. So all the good work by the Queen will go to waste. It was never going to end well.

    Channel 7 news tonight showed footage of Gavin as a political activist including his confident appearances in Sky News studios. That sounds like he was a tough cookie and smart, someone likely to turn off his phone or delete messages when lefty dickheads are telling him to kill himself.

    Oh ROFL! Numbers I’ve been a scientist for forty years.
    My expertise includes thermodynamics, statistical modelling, and a PhD in chemistry.

    I feel like I’m being schooled by a kindergarten kiddie.

    And most don’t make a habit of wishing people dead.

    “My expertise” ROFL.

    Social policy which is not based on science isn’t worth a bee’s dick.

    Now that is funny – advanced on this site.
    Policies on obesity, recognition of the health outcomes of smoking, and initiatives on road safety based on scientific analysis of statistics, are routinely caned on this site.

    Please provide a link to where Bruce of Newcastle wished you were dead. Or you coukd simply apologise for that gross slander.

    As for “Many kindergarten kiddies have a better grasp of reality..” Certainly it seems that you are getting your information on climate change from kindy kids, but while they can probably work out the reality of your scientific ignorance, that does not mean that they are themselves good scientists.

    My opinion on Harry’s and Meghan’s divorce from the Royal family *UPDATED*

    If only Harry and Meghan, whey they complete their divorce from the royal family, would follow Edward III and Wallis Simpson, and sink into deserved oblivion

    I’ve gathered that she and William have the usual Leftist politics of their class and education, but both understand that, as people who get paid to be the face of England, not of a specific political party, they need to keep their mouths shut. They do so with grace.

    Once upon a time, Harry understood this. And then he met Meghan Markle. I don’t like her. I’ve never liked her. It’s in her smile. While Kate has an open, happy smile, Meghan too often has a smug, calculating smile. I can’t explain it; I just see it. (I’d put up a photo of the smile, but I can’t find a non-copyrighted one that illustrates what I mean.)

    Meghan turned out to be a spendthrift, a malcontent, and, worst of all, a hardcore, virtue-signaling Leftist. Moreover, she wanted the perks of the Royal family, but not the work that went with it — work that includes always looking happy and keeping your nose out of politics.

    Speaking of that money she spent, think about the fact that, in less than a year, she managed to wear almost a million pounds worth of clothes (although some may have been discounted). Even worse, despite all that money, she still looked ordinary, even drab. That’s a real waste of money.

    And then there’s the virtue signaling. Meghan never saw a Leftist cause she didn’t want to embrace. That’s why I felt like Iago the parrot in Disney’s Aladdin (“Why am I not surprised?”) when I learned that the people helping Meghan and Harry extricate themselves from their job are . . . Barack and Michelle, who are offering advice heavy on pushing Progressive policies:

    Barack and Michelle Obama have advised the Sussexes on their plans for a new life outside the Royal Family.

    Harry and Meghan have become close friends with the former US president and his lawyer wife and turned to them for help.

    UPDATE: The Obamas deny that they are giving advice to Meghan and Harry. I’m sure their denial is accurate. They’re obviously providing inspiration but that’s different from meddling directly into the Royal affairs. I don’t think this changes my main point, which is that Meghan sees herself as a Michelle and I really find that distasteful

    Plea for New Zealand to house fire-threatened koalas (13 Jan)

    Thousands of people have signed a petition for koalas to be introduced to New Zealand to escape Australia’s devastating bush fires, but the proposal has been given the thumbs down by officials.

    A group calling itself the Koala Relocation Society said koalas were “functionally extinct in Australia” but could thrive in New Zealand which has nearly 30,000 hectares planted in eucalypts.

    There have been estimates of up to a billion koalas and other animals affected by the fires raging across Australia and there are concerns about how the survivors will cope given the loss of vegetation.

    A group calling itself the Koala Relocation Society said koalas were “functionally extinct in Australia” but could thrive in New Zealand which has nearly 30,000 hectares planted in eucalypts.

    A mild case of panic.

    Channel 7 news tonight showed footage of Gavin as a political activist including his confident appearances in Sky News studios. That sounds like he was a tough cookie and smart, someone likely to turn off his phone or delete messages when lefty dickheads are telling him to kill himself.

    I hope no stone is left unturned investigation his death.

    This is Australia, the investigation will be completely cocked up, or the truth buried deep.

    He believed in a cause and in his Catholic faith and tried to be true to that. It would have been very hard taking the fight up, but when you do that you need a strong support network to hold you.

    He didn’t get that from the Liberal Party. Someone should ask Morrison and the Qld branch about that. Kaysee I didn’t follow it up on the TV news because I’m very selective about what I watch on TV but I imagine some outlets gave him a hiding to nothing on it. I stated yesterday that those two drag queens should have been called out for dressing so outlandishly for a children’s encounter.

    I’m probably the exception here but I think the media will soon face a huge backlash for failing to have the guts to call out so much nonsense in our society. I find the situation intolerable. It seems in the MSM generally BS is tolerated because they are too gutless to stand up to the political correctness maniacs.

    Perhaps some of his friends should have pulled him aside and suggest given his struggles he does not go into the lion’s den. Some friends probably did do that. If we have friends struggling emotionally the better course is to steer them away from situations where they might encounter personal attacks.

    It seems he must have had a strong character. He was openly homosexual but lived by his Conservative and Catholic values. When he was just 19 he was campaigning for the NO side in the postal vote.
     
    And his group gets disaffiliated from the LNP for its Conservative values? So what does the LNP stand for?
     

    UQ’s Liberal National Club said on its Facebook Page it was making “a stand to defend LNP values against a corrosive gender ideology”.
     
    In a subsequent post, the group said: “What people do behind the closed doors of a nightclub is their business, but this event is designed to indoctrinate and sexualise young children. Our kids deserve better than this!”

     
    The LNP needs to take a long hard look at itself and decide what it stands for.

    That’s a good idea. There are huge numbers of youtube channels providing a living for people with some very basic formats and subscriptions in 6 and 7 figure sums that provide a good living. They have ads, the unavoidable ones are typically quick and the others you can click through after 5 secs.

    They are idiots are Arky because even the naive media first timer has learned how to make youtube work for them but the so-called experts don’t have a clue.

    It is an indication that they were sclerotic.
    When digital came about the main feature was the ability of the readership or audience to give immediate feedback on what was being served up.
    Instead of using that to cull the non- performers and hire people who were appealing, they closed comment sections and began lecturing everyone.
    And now they are pretty much dead.

    Mitch….that’s what drag queens do – dress outlandishly.

    The ones we see do. Eddie Izzard the Canadian comedian is a cross dresser but most don’t know it. He doesn’t hide it but he doesn’t flaunt it. As I wrote yesterday those types of drag queens are not trying to be like women they are desperate wannabe cabaret stars. They are not representative of cross dressers and gays just conspicuous examples of the desperately seeking attention types.

    I’m not on the fence, I made it obvious that the LNP needs to be called out on this issue.

    When digital came about the main feature was the ability of the readership or audience to give immediate feedback on what was being served up.

    That is not quite true.

    I don’t distinguish that cleanly. To me drag queens are the extreme end of the spectrum. We shouldn’t use extreme examples as indicative of the group. I don’t particularly care about cross dressers because human beings come in many ways(phrasing!) but, the drag queens at that event, I am very suspicious about their psychological health and am convinced they should not be presented to children as a typical cross transgender.

    The Victorian government intends to pass a law very soon that may see ordinary citizens imprisoned if they speak up against the chemical, psychological and physical mutilation of confused adolescents. Labor Attorney-General-Hennessey wants to outlaw conversion practices. They are defined in her discussion paper about the proposed Bill as

    …any practice or treatment that seeks to change, suppress or eliminate an individual’s sexual orientation or gender identity, including efforts to reduce or eliminate sexual and/or romantic attractions or feelings toward individuals of the same gender, or efforts to change gender expressions.

    Queensland already has a similar bill before its parliament. It would authorise imprisonment for those who perform what is called conversion “therapy” in that state. Such therapy is defined as a treatment or other practice that attempts to change or suppress a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity. That’s very broad. While it is directed to those who provide a health service it includes “alternative” ones, and will very arguably capture pastors, concerned family members, or other lay people who attempt to dissuade a young person they know from embarking upon a “transition” from their natal sex to its opposite.

    ZK2A, thanks just watched Warren Zevon doing Knocking on Heaven’s Door. Really good effort. Much better than Clapton, however anyone that can marry someone like this has taste and isn’t Italian television wonderful:

    Also need a name for the demon character who stabs them with pitchforks and says: “Tea times over. Back on your heads”.

    Mr Rusty, don’t know how we will stop trannies talking to kiddies. Next cab off the rank re discrimination. Whitlam lit the fuse with the Race Discrimination Act circa 75, then Hawke I think made sex discrimination illegal about ten years later. Perhaps the libs could introduce the Discrimination Discrimination Act, making discriminating against discrimination illegal.

    So far I have: Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Foucault and an armadillo. Bill Clinton will make guest appearances because he is the only famous person I can do the voice for.
    Any suggestions for another denizen?
    Best suggestion will make the cast.

    Pol Pot and/or Ho Chi Minh?

  205. Rex Mango

    Am sure Mark Latham has something to say about the current trannyfest.

    Trump might call them fake news but still lets them into his rallies and to pressers. It seems Harry and Mugface do not support a free press

    What about the Wiggle who drives the “Big Red Car”? Is that Geoff?

  209. Armadillo

    You could animate him with a pitchfork, Arky.

    Porter, yeah read that and them thinking they can manipulate the media is dumb. Trump knows he can’t control it and instead fires back. They are going to get on a very wild ride and will start missing the palace protection.

    Our journalists win Walkleys for stories about greyhounds and racehorses. Meanwhile in Iran:

    Journalists quit Iranian state broadcaster over crash cover-up
    Presenter Gellare Jabbari apologised to Iranians ‘for the 13 years I told you lies’

    At least two presenters working for the Iranian state broadcaster IRIB have announced they have quit their jobs, with a third saying she quit some time ago after having told lies on behalf of the state for 13 years.

    Gelare Jabbari apologised in an Instagram post, writing: “It was very hard for me to believe that our people have been killed. Forgive me that I got to know this late. And forgive me for the 13 years I told you lies.”

    Zahra Khatami quit her role at IRIB, saying: “Thank you for accepting me as anchor until today. I will never get back to TV. Forgive me.”

    Her fellow anchor Saba Rad said: “Thank you for your support in all years of my career. I announce that after 21 years working in radio and tv, I cannot continue my work in the media. I cannot.”

    The journalists’ statements are part of a crisis of confidence following the initial attempts by state officials to deny that Ukrainian jetliner 752 had been shot down by mistake by members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corp (IRGC) air defence force.

    The crisis is leading even some of the news agencies most closely associated with the regime to start reporting on the street protests, or a least to start addressing the allegations about a potential state cover-up.

    The Tehran-based Association of Iranian Journalists said in a statement that the country was witnessing “a funeral for public trust” that was damaging the already shaky reputation of Iran’s official media.

    Speaking candidly on BBC Radio Today, Ghanbar Naderi, a commentator on Iran’s state-run Press TV, admitted: “There is little trust in the government and people want more freedom. The lies they said about the shooting down of the aeroplane [have] lost public trust. The Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps know it very well.”

    He added: “Millions and millions took [to] the streets following the assassination of Qassem Suleimani. It was a rare moment of unity but the IRGC blew it. As a journalist you need to be able to sleep at night. I will never ever distance myself from the truth. This a great nation. It has made many mistakes that are unacceptable. If the IRGC shot down a civilian airplane, I have no choice but to condemn it.”

    The Association of Iranian Journalists said: “The publication of false information has had a severe impact on public confidence and public opinion, and more than ever shook the media’s shaky position. The situation has become so complex. We lie loudest when we lie to ourselves; and Islamic Republic of Iran state television employees acknowledge that their credibility has been lost. Unaware that the credibility of this media and most of the domestic media had long since vanished.

    “It should be noted, however, that other media outlets objected to the situation, but the Islamic Republic of Iran’s state television favoured it. This incident showed that people cannot trust official data and journalists should try to fill this gap as much as possible.”

    Many Iranian newspapers appear to be angry because they felt their readerships were turning to international media to find out the truth about the crash.

    For instance, the reformist newspaper Etemad has persistently demanded since the weekend to know for how long the IRGC knew that it had shot down the plane and whether senior figures in the government were really not informed until Friday.

    Royal Memorabillia is pretty much overrated as it’s made in its tens of thousands, if not hundreds of thousands.
