    I am as suspicious of depression as I am of people who want to “spend more time with their families”.

    Spending more time with some families can be depressing…

  6. Top Ender

    Good on Mr Inglis and i hope he copes with his depression.

    My original post however was wondering why modern TV news bombards us with “sporting stories’ all through the program. Ch 9 here have gone from 30 mins to an hour a night for their news, and there would be an average of six to ten such stories scattered through the program every night.

    Why such an obsession with “sport” – which are about not actually sport itself but the giant industry players and their transfers, pay breaches, being busted for something, whether they’ll be playing or not this week and on and on and on ad nauseam.

    I think I just figured it out. They are all tied together with the TV stations that show sport for vast sums of money, right?

    Tailgunner,

    Inglis hasn’t been the same since the Bunnies won their GF. Sure he gets up for the Origin series but I think he’s unhappy at the Bunnies. He’s not a natural fullback either, far better in the centres.

    When he is on his game he is an incredible unit. I’ve never seen a fend like his. He doesn’t just fend or brush off his attackers, he fking flattens them then runs over the top of them. On song he’s like a train.

    The Greg Inglis fend;

    I don’t want to bust your balloon here, but she’s a little on the masculine side of looks, no? But hey, don’t let me deflate your view of her. Rub away the hair and she’s a speck on the side of boyish looking.

    Me, I’ve always gone for the girl next door look. 🙂

    JC,

    Just about the entire police force I would imagine, (and hope).

    Every large organization has a Tubby Ashton. Totally and completely untalented who manages to claw his way through the order of things likely by knifing people in the back and playing politics all the time. They all look the same too.

    I’m a bit surprised myself… but the boner never lies!

  17. C.L.

    Regrettably, the stupid actions of South Sydney’s coach earlier this season meant Inglis was kept on the field with serious knee damage, and that is likely to mean his career will end prematurely. No doubt, that has much to do with his depression.

    Indeed. I said at the time that Maguire should have been sacked for that stupendous imbecility.

    Some good news on the sporting front. Tennis drug cheat, Maria Sharapova, has been refused a wild card entry to the French Open. Hopefully, she will also be refused a Wimbledon entry.

    Whether that’s a good thing or not may depend on who may have removed the cores.

    Aren’t they all thermo-nuclear jobbies? That’d mean a fissile-fusion-fission reaction, with the casing providing probably half the bang.

    3d printing of functioning mouse ovaries.

    “Incredibly, the team was able to conclude that the 3D printed ovaries both boosted hormone production, and increased the fertility of the mice – which went on to produce eggs, ovulate, give birth to healthy babies and even nurse them due to the blood vessels that formed. To apply this discovery to humans, the researchers suggest those about to undergo undergoing cancer treatment could freeze their ovaries, allowing new ones to be printed from their own in the future.

    Now, this has been done to some extent before. But what makes this research different is the materials used. They need to withstand the trauma of surgery, and be porous enough to work with other organs.

    By using gelatin (which makes up most of our soft tissue) in the 3D printing process, the team was able to make ovaries that met this criteria.

    The team will next move on to replicating the process in pigs, and says human trails will occur within the next 10 years”.

    That Quadrant piece is brilliant.

    … Commissioner Fatfoot had waddled through the door and seated himself at the table’s head. The hiss of air being driven from the upholstery beneath his considerable bulk hid her sigh of relief.

    Make no mistake, if Pell is charged, his QC will unleash a massacre the likes of which has rarely been seen in an Australian court-room. If he is not charged, Ashton and the corrupt perverts in the SANO bunker will be humiliated and professionally destroyed.
    That’s the choice. Good luck with it, you fat disgrace.

    I couldn’t work out the connection to the gun laws.

    The suggestion was that certain classes of weapons were being sealed in poly/p.v.c. piping, with end caps, and buried in your back garden, against a day of want, sure to come.

    I saw one case, where a gun owner (now dead) had two (illegal) Chinese type 56 assault rifles stashed in such a manner….

  51. johanna

    Wow, just watched the video of the “Greg Inglis fend.” It’s a long time since I followed Rugby League, but it is easy to see why this guy is such a star. He doesn’t just “fend,” he runs over them like a freight train afterwards.

    He reminds me of the great duckers and weavers of the past, like Laurie Daley (who was fairly big) and the little guys like John Raper and Billy Smith. The ability to instinctively find the weak spot in the defence before it even exists and head for it is almost supernatural.

    If, as some people have said here, he is basically a good bloke, here’s hoping he gets well soon. Talent like that doesn’t grow on trees.

    There is Nothing New Under the Sun Department.

    Scrolling through the admirable Gutenberg site’s list of new additions, I found this.

    It is a compendium of the (UK) Times’ personal columns from 1800 to1870. It contains all the things that are found on the internet today. We have: lots of ways of hiding the real identity of advertisers and responders; stalkers of both sexes; the arranging of illicit sexual liaisons; coded messages probably referring to criminal enterprises; attempts to find missing persons – etc.

    It is remarkable how recognisable these advertisements of 200 years ago are to the modern internet consumer.

    You’re willing to take Comey’s word the exhange between him and the president took place where Trump suggested the FBI ease off on Flynn. This is of course coming from Comey, who was fired and has an obvious axe to grind.

    But you’re not willing to take Putmeister’s word on anything.

    Are you acting a little partisan here? Like just a tad….

    Is Flynn accused by anyone of committing any actual crime?

    Yes there is. He spoke to a Wussian diplomat in the open at the DC function. The D’rats say this is treason.

    So asking Comey not to investigate Flynn for not committing a crime was a pretty sane and reasonable request; more or less, a “pull your head in” moment.

    Attended a conference today.
    One of the topics was UN 2030 Sustainable Develpoment Goals.

    I got the first question in and said all 6 speakers spoke highly of if it. I said that is was strange that the were no critical comments.

    I asked is this because there was some sort of regulatory or financial penalty for organisation not to fully enforce and implement it.

    I was told there was no penalty but that we couldn’t afford not to be involved.

    It was a SJW orgy of smugness.

  78. JC

    What we have, at the very moment, as accusations against Trump, are the following.

    1. He spoke to the the wussian foreign minster and the wussian ambassador and gave them highly classified, sensitive intel.

    McMaster has gone of record saying Trump did no such thing. How would Fake News MSM even know what was discussed in the room. Furthermore the President has full authority to declassify anything he wants.

    2. Comey reckons Trump asked him to go easy on Flynn.
    How can anyone prove this? Furthermore does Comey have a copy of this diary note on hand and if so why, as it’s the property of the FBI. Not his.

    He continued: “The American officials went on to say that they believed that Putin has ‘levers of pressure’ over Trump—but refrained from going into any detail.”

    The potential leverage referred to is believed to be a dossier of unverified but potentially explosive allegations against Mr Trump which was compiled by Christopher Steele, a former MI6 agent.

Five centuries ago, childhood mortality rates basically took population issues out of the equation. And more recently, as climate change has become a big deal, we’re killing millions every year.

    Her solution isn’t working. Just how many additional deaths does Steinem want?

    Very good question. It’s not an exaggeration to liken feminists like Steinem as late-modern Himmlerians.

    This seems to have been ignored:

    Australia’s five major banks have been told they must sign non-disclosure agreements before the Turnbull government hands over details of its new $6.2 billion bank levy. It’s understood the non-disclosure agreements will have to be signed by each and every individual who needs to see the legislation – which could be as many as 30 or 40 people across the country and even around the world – and will curtail the external advice banks can receive before they respond to the proposed laws in the 24 hour time frame.

    So a big new tax…and the Turnbull government is gagging everyone on the details?

    Utterly illiberal. Utterly despicable.

    And this from the so-called Liberal party.

    A big new secret-details tax. From the Liberal party.

    Hillllaryyyy is back!

    Returning from her absence from public life, Hillary Clinton has made a bold return to politics.

    After spending the months after she lost the presidential election to Donald Trump going for long walks and attending Broadway shows in her home state of New York, Mrs Clinton has started a new political group.

    She announced the new initiative, called Onward Together, via her Twitter feed, and urged supporters to get involved.

    With her new group, she hopes to encourage people from all walks of life to get involved in politics.

    Mrs Clinton wants others to get more involved in their communities and run for office.

    The slogan for her new initiative is “resist, insist, persist, enlist”.

    Her new group appears to be aimed at people who agree with Democrat politics.

    The website says it “is dedicated to advancing the vision that earned nearly 66 million votes in the last election.”

    “Citizen engagement at every level is central to a strong and vibrant democracy,” it continues.

    “In recent months, we’ve seen what’s possible when people come together to resist bullying, hate, falsehoods, and divisiveness, and stand up for a fairer, more inclusive America.”

    Unfortunately no comments at the UK Telegraph.

    Pie-shover gives Qantas ‘new form of flight risk’
    The Australian12:00AM May 18, 2017

    The same-sex marriage ­opponent who shoved a pie in ­Qantas chief executive Alan Joyce’s face last week says the company has “identified a new form of flight risk” by banning him for life from its planes.

    In a further dig at Mr Joyce and his vocal campaign for marriage equality, Tony Overheu told The Australian in an email that he believed businesses should “run healthy operations employing people while providing needed goods and services”.

    The devout Christian said people such as him were fed up with moral stands taken by business leaders.

    “Having rejected the notion CEOs are to assume the role of moral watchdog, the elderly are saying enough is enough,” he said. “Meantime, having determined a new form of flight risk, it seems Qantas are taking what they see as appropriate measures to protect their passengers and employees.”

    Mr Overheu, 67, will no longer be able to fly with Qantas and its partner airlines, including Jetstar, Cathay Pacific and ­Emirates.

    Police charged him with common assault, damage and trespass after he walked on stage at a Perth business function and pushed a lemon meringue pie into Mr Joyce’s face.

    Mr Joyce gave a statement to police and vowed he would not be “bullied” into suppressing his views on social issues.

    Mr Overheu will appear in Perth Magistrates Court on June 7.

    Katter is deluded. Wikipedia says:

    Historical evidence also points to the use of non-returning boomerangs by the Native Americans of California and Arizona, and inhabitants of southern India for killing birds and rabbits. Indeed, some boomerangs were not thrown at all, but were used in hand to hand combat by Indigenous Australians. Ancient Egyptian examples, however, have been recovered and experiments have shown that they functioned as returning boomerangs.

    And note that a ‘non-returning boomerang’ is, in fact, a stick. I am struggling to see how much ingenuity is required to ‘invent’ a stick.

    Commissioner of Forests writes WWII strategy – who knew?

    Brisbane Line no myth: chance find proves plan to sacrifice north

    A treasure trove of documents detailing how Australia was to be subjected to a scorched-earth policy if Japan had invaded 75 years ago has been uncovered in an amazing chance discovery.

    Heritage consultant Sue Rosen, researching dusty Forestry Commission files held in the NSW State Records centre in western Sydney, stumbled across the files in 2012. After two years of digging for further files, she has published them in a book, Scorched Earth, to be released next Wednesday.

    The files shed light on the controversial Brisbane Line — a reputed strategy of the wartime Menzies government to abandon most of Australia to the invaders and concentrate on defending the nation’s southeast, where most people lived and most industrial capacity was centred.

    The 1943 federal election was fought on war policy and resulted in a record majority for Labor prime minister John Curtin, who called a royal commission to investigate the Brisbane Line allegations. It was never proved that the government was prepared to abandon towns and cities outside the southeast, but a popular belief lingered that this was so. The documents discovered by Dr Rosen will add to this belief.

    Dr Rosen was researching the Murray River red gum forests of southern NSW when she came across the documents. Her job was to prepare signage and information plaques at public facilities managed by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service.

    Then she called up Forestry Commission File 3/5944. Instead of details of river red gums around Moama, she read phrases such as “Total War” and “Battle Stations for All”. “As I read on, it dawned on me I had found buried treasure,” Dr Rosen said.

    “I couldn’t believe my eyes, nor could I get the smile off my face. This sort of find sets your heart racing and I could not let it go.”

    The yellowing, tatty pages in the file were compiled by Harold Swain, the NSW Commissioner of Forests, who in 1942 chaired the scorched-earth sub-committee of the NSW government’s state war effort co-ordination committee.

    Swain was a bluff, outspoken character, “with an ego the size of the Melbourne Cricket Ground”, who loved to get involved in fights with politicians and academics, according to his biographer, Peter Holzworth.

    The files first uncovered were incomplete, so Dr Rosen set off to find the missing parts, which she did by accessing documents held by other departments.

    Soon she had the full scorchedearth plans, described by fellow historian and author Peter Grose as “a treasure trove, a goldmine, a cornucopia of rich Australian history”.

    “We know that Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra were to be defended at all costs: too bad if you lived in Darwin, Perth, Adelaide or Hobart, still worse if you lived in Alice Springs or Townsville,” Mr Grose writes in a foreword to Dr Rosen’s forthcoming book.

    Publication comes between two of the most significant dates in World War II history: the Battle of the Coral Sea and the 75th anniversary of the Japanese submarine attack on Sydney Harbour on the night of May 31, 1942.

    Twenty-one sailors were killed when Japanese torpedos sank the converted ferry HMAS Kuttabul.

    Ms Rodriguez has been studying film at Sydney’s SAE Creative Media ­Institute since the beginning of last year, and has posted photos of herself tanning on the sand, cuddling kangaroos and has also been snapped sipping cocktails on Bondi Beach.

    Brilliant – Justice Department Appoints Robert Mueller To Investigate 2016 Russian Election Interference…

    Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the Justice Department has appointed former FBI Director Robert Mueller as special counsel to justice to oversee the federal investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

    https://theconservativetreehouse.files.wordpress.com/2017/05/robert-mueller-2.jpg

    The appointment of a special counsel is excellent because it means Mueller has wide latitude to look into all of the 2016 Russian Conspiracy narratives the political opposition to Donald Trump has postulated.

    Deputy AG Rosenstein did the appointing because Attorney General Jeff Sessions recused himself from the ‘muh Russia conspiracy’. sion between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials. The results here will be splendid for the Trump administration because there is no ‘there’ there in the collusion narrative. The White House approved of Rosenstein’s decision.

    The files shed light on the controversial Brisbane Line — a reputed strategy of the wartime Menzies government to abandon most of Australia to the invaders and concentrate on defending the nation’s southeast, where most people lived and most industrial capacity was centred.

    This was all pulled apart, and comprehensively refuted, back in 1998. An idea was put forward, pre war, that a line be drawn from Brisbane to Adelaide, outside of which no reinforcements would be sent, in the event of Japanese invasion. Commanders at Townsville, Darwin or Western Australia could not expect reinforcement.

    The idea was never even considered when Ivan McKay drew up his appreciation for the defence of mainland Australia, and was later confused with a “scorched earth’ policy, and a plan for the evacuation of civilians ahead of a Japanese invasion, to produce the whole “Brisbane Line” myth.

    The best refutation of the whole story is contained in Paul Burn’s book “The Brisbane Line Controversy: Political Opportunism Versus National Security, 1942 – 45.”

    Interesting leftist take on this – those two will work together to bring him down, not to see justice served.

  173. Calli, the current theory is there is a stone stuck in the tube between the kidney and .. somewhere else.. called the ureter. Still waiting.

    Nikki Savva on fire this morning. Apparently the Australian people have finally woken up to the fact that it is their job to ensure the continuation of the TURNCOAT™ government at all costs.

    So the common folk have embraced the proposed bank tax, knowing that this will immediately be passed on to them.

    Plans for a giant statue of Truffles, to be worshipped by all citizens, are under way.

    Coptic Christians being sent back to Egypt.

    They came here on visitors visas with their elderly parents and then applied for protection visas.

    Im not surprised they were unsuccessful but it does highlight the holidaying Iranian fiasco.

    I’m sure that the UK have a rule that protection visas are forfeit if you return to the place from which you ‘fled’ within five years.

    How about an auto disqualification, no appeal, rule here?

    Get well fast, M0nty. And if they’re stones, pray that they are teeney tiny ones. For obvious reasons.

    If they are teeney tiny stones, they will pass through without to much of a problem.

    The pain happens when the stone blocks the outlet drain from the kidney – more urine builds up pressure and the pain sets in.

    A stone can roll around in the kidney for quite a while without blocking off the drain outlet, but when it does get in the right spot…… The stone can also block the tube from the kidney to the bladder – with the same results.

    Blocked off long enough can cause the kidney to (basically) die and death then follows.

    Comey diarised it at the time, three months ago, back when he had no idea he would be fired. That diary will get turned over to congressional committees and/or tendered as evidence through some channel, no doubt.

    After failing to get Bret Stephens fired from the New York Times, the nation’s leading climate scientist, Michael Mann (@MichaelEMann) has focused his vitriol on cartoonist Scott Adams, of Dilbert fame (@ScottAdamsSays).

    I can’t believe I just wrote that. (Seriously, if you are not yet blocked by Mann, go over and read his Twitter feed for a glimpse into the world view of the nation’s most important climate scientist.)

    Pro tip: If you don’t want to be viewed as analogous to a religious fundamentalist, don’t go after cartoonists.

    Interesting passage in a piece on the fracture of France resulting from globalisation, the rise in immigration & multiculturalism (a byword for Islamicisation) & the decline of the traditional French economy:

    Departures of French J e w s to Israel run to about 7,000 a year, according to the J e w i s h Agency of France. The leavers are disproportionately young…[further on, from the ethnic French perspective:] “Unlike our parents in the 1960s, we live in a multicultural society, a society in which ‘the other’ doesn’t become ‘somebody like yourself’. And when ‘the other’ doesn’t become ‘somebody like yourself’, you constantly need to ask yourself how many of the other there are – whether in your neighbourhood or your apartment building. Because nobody wants to be a minority.”

    Young French J e w s flee to Israel while the ethnic French made redundant by globalisation who ca no longer afford to live in Paris or the other major cities flee to la France périphérique where they can still afford the rents on their meagre dole or pensions and store up resentment. I take it many of these voted for Melenchon, Le Pen in the 2nd round or were among the record number who abstained from voting in disgust.

    Macron will have to work a miracle to solve France’s problems but he doesn’t seem like a miracle worker to me. France’s problems run deeper than its moribund economy and Macron’s social policies will only exacerbate the developing divisions that are fracturing France.

  189. Comey diarised it at the time, three months ago

    Since when does an unsubstantiated diary entry by one of the warring parties become evidence against the other party?
    It’s just evidence of the war between the two, not a factual statement to be relied on in court.

    However, Comey saying “It’s not happened in my experience”, under oath, in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee on FBI oversight, is a factual refutation of any interference by the Trump administration.

  190. Get well, Muttley, the only bad thing I’ve ever wished on you are rakes, but that is really a symbiotic relationship.

    Writing the WA wheatbelt, a place of radical environmental change

    This snippet will resonate with john constantine:

    What we get in both of these very different writers is a distinct picture of the dream of the wheatbelt. It is this dream — a settler-colonial ideology of farming independence — that we see refracted through the wheatbelt writers all the way through the 20th century.

    God help you all when being a settler-colonist kulak is retrospectively criminalised.

    WORLD BREAKING NEWS
    What we know about US Russia probes
    Reuters9:07AM May 18, 2017

    What is known about US investigations into Russian election meddling.

    HOW DID INVESTIGATIONS BEGIN?

    Former President Barack Obama ordered US intelligence agencies to assess whether Russia intervened in the election after a cyber attack on the Democratic National Committee in July last year and the publication of thousands of personal emails from Hillary Clinton’s campaign manager.

    WHAT DID INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES FIND?

    The CIA and FBI found Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered a campaign to undermine confidence in the US electoral system and affect the outcome with a “clear preference” for Trump to win.

    Putin’s associates hacked information, paid social media “trolls” and backed efforts by Russian government agencies and state-funded media to sway public opinion.

    So fucking what!

    So if you’re looking for “facts” you can share
    All you gotta to is taunt him, and prod him, and shove him,
    And show him that you dare.

    Show him that you dare, just for him.
    Leak some things that will put him in the poo.
    Lie your head off just to impeach him, ’cause,

    There may be a predisposition to kidney stones. A rellie had them several times, from his late 30s onward. Reckoned it was excruciatingly painful. BTW, does anyone know if women ever get them? It seems to be mainly a male thing.

    On another note, I posted last night about Nothing New Under the Sun, re the compilation of personal ads in The Times from in the 1800s, and how like the internet it is. Hidden identities, codes, sex, crime, and a fascinating cast of characters.

    One E. G. Wilson is reminiscent of our own srr. He posted and posted and posted almost daily at times, for years. He was apparently the victim of a government conspiracy, where all of his communications were intercepted. Lawyers refused to help him, even when he offered them cold hard cash. What’s more, the conspiracy extended all over the world, and he was a lonely patriot at the mercy of un-named dark forces. He lashed out viciously at individuals who dared to question his mania. Nothing new under the sun.

    One guy posted to his friend: C – 6 3/4 and R – 7 1/2. No idea what that was about. 🙂 Addresses of gay clubs and beats are thinly disguised here and there.

    Lots of posts in what look like pretty primitive letter codes. No doubt a doddle for modern cryptographers, but intriguing. Mentions of the arrival and departure of ships and people, probably something to do with tourism promotion, right?

    Plenty of pleas from abandoned lovers and families, and also assignations being arranged.

    It’s the kind of thing worth having a window open in, and reading a few in between other stuff. In a world where it is claimed that we are somehow different from our ancestors, it’s a salutory reminder that we are not at all different, really. The same problems and preoccupations, passions, vices and virtues, and even the loonies are recognisable!

    I for one cannot see the next Korean War lasting as long as the First Korean War.

    Possible course – desperate punishment or last resort gambit by ‘I So Ronery Jr‘.

    Massive artillery and rocket bombardment against Seoul and Inchon.
    Tunnels exits blow open and NoKo assault troops pour South while commando units deploy.

    And then – in roll the cruise missiles and B-1s and the SoKo and US military pour it on. Probably exhaust the NoKo artillery stocks in short order and very doubtful China would pull their fat out of the fire this time.

    Meanwhile, back in Australia – we will keep scratching our heads, tinkering with the carburettor and sending our regrets to our regional allies that, while we would love to help, we seem to be stuck here.

  227. I’ll have a go at that, TE.
    Prediction required:

    – date of Korean warfare commencement (any two or more state actors)

    December – ground will be frozen hard, and very little obstacle at rivers and marshy type ground.
    The crop will be in and therefore armed forces will be at maximum call up strength.

    – initial type of engagement

    Biological – two/three weeks previous to prevent/disrupt South Korean mobilisation. Probably bird flu variant.
    Nuclear – delivered by donkey equivalent while everyone is watching the missile program. Probably three weapons in containers/suicide subs in Seoul, Pusan, and middle of US Carrier Group.

    – duration

    Three months.

    – outcome

    Korea reunified as Chinese Protectorate.
    Japan rearms as a nuclear power,
    US loses major part of Pacific Fleet,
    Total Civilian Casualties – >20 million.
