    When I sent the Ministerial I copied in Senator Roberts (for his interest in climate) and Senator Burston (for his view of TheirABC) and the rest of the (allegedly) conservative senators in my home state (Hanson, Brandis, Canavan, Macdonald, McGrath and O’Sullivan) and my local MP (Katter – who is a very entertaining bloke btw). We pay for ‘em, might as well use ‘em.

    I offered my local paper a 600-word op-ed, too, but, predictably, they’d prefer my usual 150-word letter to the editor…

    I’m more than happy for any or all of it to appear wherever it might assist the cause – with or without my name at the end. Fugg ‘em. Gotta do something… If you know of any outlet that’d carry it, I’ll play the game.

    Has that got anything to do with the quantum eraser experiment?

    It’s all related, entangled quantum systems remain consistent across arbitrary space and time.

  3. I’ve read about people who suicided because the pain from a cluster headache was so intense that they couldn’t face it. Normal, otherwise perfectly functional people with families and jobs and everything to live for.

    #1 son. Every three years, regular as clockwork, March to May. He’s got them now. Talk about the Walking Dead. Only known, clinically established relief is from shrooms**.

    So the editors just identify specialists to write the entries in all fields that are included. Who decides which entries are to be included? Is it broken down into disciplines?

    That’s the process. It was Maritimea, which still sells well around the world apparently. US company.

    Dunno who decides what entries should be included. I remember seeing the list and commenting that X and Y were missing from the military history bits – promptly got asked to write them.

    There were areas such as environment of the oceans, flora and fauna, merchant shipping, law of the sea, warfare at sea – stuff like that.

  8. Top Ender

    I should have added there is a lot of piece work like that in the writing bizness.

    I know several historians who scrape a living at it. Writers get paid badly – 10% of the cover price if it’s your book is what you get from a publisher. So many eke out their wages with this sort of contract work.

    Passing kidney stones is supposed to be one of the most painful experiences one can have.

    Here is an account of what Samuel Pepys went through:

    Pepys was bothered by bladder and kidney stones from a young age. It was an ailment that also affected his mother, uncle and brother. He suffered continually from ‘fits of the stone’ until, at the age of 25, he could bear the pain no longer and resorted to the knife of skilled surgeon Thomas Hollier. In his cousin’s house on 26 March 1658, without anaesthetic, antiseptic or pain relief, Pepys was strapped down and Hollier performed a lithotomy: quickly removing a stone from his bladder the size of a billiard ball through a three inch incision between his scrotum and anus.

    Remarkably Pepys resisted shock and infection, and recovered from the operation in just five weeks. He was well aware of his fortune: he proudly kept his bladder stone as a grisly souvenir and celebrated the success of the operation with a banquet or ‘stone feast’ on its anniversary for a good few years. Although there were some associated complications – the wound never properly healed and the operation may have left him infertile – Pepys remained relatively pain- and stone-free other than sporadic bouts of soreness in his testicles which he ascribed to ‘squeezing myself in a coach’. It is interesting to think of what might have been: if Pepys had died as a result of the procedure that day there would be no diary and he would be almost forgotten to history.

    Attacking TheirABC on the climate debate front is an extension of my retirement hobby – which I call ‘relaxivism’ – effectively the opposite of ‘activism’ (the very word looks Green to me these days).

    I defined relaxivism for Urban Dictionary like this; “Relaxivism is the use of reason and logic to calm a fellow citizen who has become alarmed or agitated by prophecies put forward by special interest groups. Relaxivism strives to remove hysteria and emotion from debates and to replace it with rationality and scepticism.”

    Basically I use info taken from blogs by Watts, Spencer, Nova, Ball, Curry et al and use it to smack down greenies in the letters columns of my local papers. It’s great to see all the ‘splodey-headed responses making their side look even stupider.

    Using “proper channels” to dig out admissions of failures by our redundant and obsolete taxpayer-funded broadcaster was a logical progression.

    The call for a national emission intensity scheme will be hotly contested as will the removal of abortion from the NSW Crimes Act and an increased Syrian refugee intake.

    The policy battles highlight the generational evolution taking place within the party, which is deeply conservative at a parliamentary level but more socially and environmentally progressive among younger members.

  26. I once was foolish enough to go to a government hospital with a gallstone attack.

    Came down with lotsa pain once, in Sinagpore. Out of the hotel, walking, up & down, through shops, back to the hotel, thrashed around on the bed. Lady I was supposed to have dinner with turned up, walked with me (I couldn’t stand still) while I tried to walk off the pain, came up to the room, when I jumped on the bed and started thrashing around, instead of sitting & having a cuppa, and was sweating so much it was like I was swimming in my clothes, despite the freezing aircon, she frogmarched me around to the nearest hospital.

    This is where the story diverges from an Australian experience:

    Hospital casualty (or whatever it is called) processed me in Ten seconds flat, a lady in a white coat with clipboard appeared, asked me what was my symptoms, a few seconds later she’s back with a specimen jar for me to fill, into the dunny, provided specimen, & she took the jar.

    I sat down & noticed there was no National Geographic or anything to read. Turns out the Singaporeland medical system hasn’t yet grasped the concept of “waiting”. A slim young doc appeared before I’d finished scanning the room for the magazine rack or a poster board to read, he said the “tests were back” [..at this point I really knew I wasn’t in Oz anymore..] and that he thought I may have had a kidney stone.

    A pretty nurse beckoned me through a curtain, lay me on a bed and stood there speaking to me. Doc reappeared with a syringe and said he’d give a “a few shots right now” of “pretty strong pain medication” and was that okay with me?

    Then he stated that the stone wasn’t all that big (forget how he worked that out, I may have missed a step or two of the process – the pain was hell) and that if I hadn’t passed it by the time I got home to my country, to present to an Ozzi hospital.

    Meanwhile, would I like a handful of super-duper strong pain drugs to take away with me? (Just in case it got painful again after the needles administered by the pretty nurse wore off.)

    I wouldn’t have been in the hospital for more than about 40 minutes.
    Had to pay AUD $180 for the whole deal, including the half a tobacco tin of bluddee strong euphoric pain drugs I got to keep.

    Walked back to the hotel, calmly had dinner & lots of tea, effortlessly passed the stone before bedtime, and before any more pain returned.

    Only Doc could do it. Within 10 minutes of Dr Howard Brady starting his climate change talk tonight, he was telling Doc, “Sir, shut up! You don’t know what you’re talking about!” Snork! Even I was wishing Doc would cease and desist from asserting that Dr Brady had made a “slip of the tongue”. Doc was right; sea levels are not rising at 13 – 15 cm per year, but by century. Speaker’s slip of the tongue and Doc was not letting go. There was the token young hairy activist in the back row who kept banging on about something called “conthensis” blah blah. In fact, Dr Brady gave an extremely interesting talk and showed great breadth and depth of knowledge, particularly responding to audience questions. Everybody should buy Mirror and Mazes – A guide through the climate change debate. And I met Min, which for me, was the highlight – another kindred spirit and just around the corner. Beauty!

    I’m watching Paul Murray and now see why Fiona Scott lost at the last election to a Labor chick. She’s more left than Labor and loves Morrison’s budget which of course she would as she backed Mal in the spill. Wyatt Roy and Fiona repaid Abbott for campaigning for them by stabbing him in the back.

    But there she is large as life, being deferred to for her opinion on politics. A one term MP should be left to fade into obscurity from whence she came.

  46. Crossie

    And now Fiona Scott agrees with Clementine Ford, the shift to the far left is now complete.

  47. Infidel Tiger

    Why Murray has Fiona Scott on his show is one of life’s great mysteries.

    She’s no looker, she’s dumb and more to the point she is completely irrelevant. She will never hold office again and she only briefly held office because the ALP were as popular as a honeymoon in a Turkish prison.

    Read it a few years ago, that one beneficial result of drinking copious amount of beer is that you’re less likely to suffer from kidney stones.

    What that ‘copious amount’ in a number of cans or bottles meant, was never made clear.
    Used to brew my own beer, but since I spend such a lot of time in parts of Europe where good beer is cheap, I couldn’t be bothered.

    Appeal against $25m payout to mining magnate’s secret daughter
    Tim Clarke, PerthNow
    May 18, 2017 12:15pm

    LAWYERS for the estate of late mining magnate Michael Wright – who are appealing against the record $25m payout handed to his secret daughter Olivia Mead – have said again that the teenager’s extraordinary ‘wishlist’ revealed in court was “not grounded in reality”.

    It is almost two years year since the sensational multi-million dollar award to the PR student, who revealed herself during her courtroom battle with her half-sisters for a larger slice of her father’s massive fortune.

    The appeal against the momentous award of $25 million to the teenager was being heard in the WA Court of Appeal today, with the legal team for the executor of the estimated billion dollar Wright estate claiming that the award was too much, and had no legal basis.

    And in arguments with the three-judge appeal panel hearing the appeal, Jane Needham SC pointed to the list of items Ms Mead told the court she might require in her lifetime – which included a crystal studded grand piano, the most expensive bass guitar in the world, and 300 pairs of shoes a year for life.

    The Wrights are saying that the $3m that was left for Ms Mead in the will was enough to provide for a $1m house and an income for life.

    Ms Mead has already been given $3m from the will – but is battling to retain the rest of the fortune granted by Master Craig Sanderson – which is currently held in trust.

    Justice Michael Buss, president of the Court Appeal said in court today, that the list used during the trial was “just silly”.

    Speaking of Gen snowflake? THREE HUNDRED pairs of shoes a year for life? Imelda Marcos never had so many shoes, did she?

  72. “Why should the gay and lesbian community be merely ‘tolerated’ when the heterosexual community takes for granted ‘acceptance’ and recognition of their sexual preference as ‘the norm’?”

    It’s very instructive that Wong believes that sexual intercourse is only a preference; that it has little or nothing to do with the natural inclination of the species, given its mode of reproduction. And as DrBeauGan noted earlier, it’s news to all of us that we constitute a community to the exclusion of all other inclinations, etc.

    Cluster headaches are another. I’ve read about people who suicided because the pain from a cluster headache was so intense that they couldn’t face it. Normal, otherwise perfectly functional people with families and jobs and everything to live for.

    Botox for migraine (same continuum as cluster headaches), Medicare item if PBS criteria are met. Come on down/do a Skype consult (bulkbilled) to find out if you qualify. If you quote “Dolittle” you will get mates rates ie +10%. JOKE! Seriously though, often women, often high achievers, seriously debilitating. +70% success rate. They can get their life back, go back to work, long suffering husbands get back in the good books, kids reintroduced to mum. There will be fairly local providers for sure. I’m happy to help with that as it is such a successful treatment for many people – worth a go at least.

And so even as we mourn his death, we celebrate his life…

    For those asking, I had a long afternoon nap while the oxycodone wore off, and am feeling much better. What a day, though.

    I read a story today about the opiate Armageddon destroying The American heartland. It’s very depressing.

    They are quite happy to administer opiate pain-dullers … to a point.
    Probably told this one before …
    In hospital after surgery hooked up to one of those self-administering morphine pumps.
    Next morning a young Asian nurse comes in to do the obs …
    Nurse “Ah, Mr Lowe, you only had 3 shots of morphine during the night”.
    Me “Yeah, I’m saving it to take home.”
    Nurse “Ah, well… um … look … gee … someone will discuss pain management with you before discharge”
    Poor young bloke.
    I suspect it wasn’t the first time he had been confronted with someone wanting access to a big bottle of morphine.

    2 or 3 Dems “crossed the floor” to support Gorsuch when he was going to be affirmed on a GOP show of hands anyway.
    Two things :-
    (1) They have one eye on disgruntled electorates who voted for Trump; and
    (2) Don’t underestimate the momentus precedent it would be to impeach a President on little more than an MSM lynch mob. Politicians love a legacy but they will baulk at being among the only Senators in the history of the Republic to knock off a sitting President.

  107. You know what, you’ve actually outlined another reason why they wouldn’t convict him.

    This has got a long, long, loooong way to run. The first half of the Watergate timeline has only taken four months, which is about triple the speed, but once the special prosecutor shows up (plus the committees get seriously cracking) I expect things will slow down a bit, since they work at a different pace. Trump is going to do the GOP slowly, Keating style.

    It might actually be better for the Democrats if they don’t impeach, because that would cause an electoral rout in 2018. Given the skewed incentives for all of those Republicans in gerrymandered safe seats, impeachment is still unlikely unless and until the Democrats take back the House, in fact. As long as 35% of the public is right behind Trump all the way down into the abyss, he’s going to keep quacking in the Oval Office as the lamest of lame ducks.

    Well done, Beliaik.

    Don’t hold out too much hope with complaining to the ACMA, though.

    I once complained to the TV station, and then to the ACMA, about the loathsome televangelist Benny Hinn. The little creep was pretending to cure cancer and diabetes onstage and soliciting donations on the strength of it, in prepaid presentations on commercial TV.

    The TV station fobbed me off because it was a prepaid presentation, which was ridiculous, but I guess they knew that nothing would be done about their tacky little revenue stream. They were right, of course.

    The ACMA, after three months, sent me a three page letter which I have kept to remind me of just how indecipherable bureaucratic prose can be. As someone who was a practising bureaucrat for some years, I am probably more experienced in deciphering it than Joe or Jan Public. But I could not, and still cannot, understand what it means. It is simply bewildering, and utterly opaque. Except, of course, that the bottom line is that Benny dun nuffink wrong, so go away.

    I can understand why the TV station defended their revenue stream. But why the ACMA regard a slimeball who does fake cures and solicits money on the strength of it, in the name of Christianity, as not in breach of something or other is a mystery. Remember, they sent Alan Jones to re-education camp forwhat he said in a couple of minutes on radio. Yet, Hinn has been doing his utterly fraudulent act on TV for years.

    I wish you luck, but don’t get your hopes up!

    I have had 3 different types of kidney stones. The uric acid ones break up quite easily – basically a collection of crystals. These are the ones that are similar to gout.

    I have had the calcium based ones – round & smooth – bit like a pearl, but wasn’t.

    And my first one was triangular – 5 mm x 7 mm x 2 – 3 mm thick. It was hard like a piece of basalt off the road. And didn’t it hurt going through my system.

    So not all kidney stones are linked to gout.

    Back in my hotel room, I began to feel numbness in my face, hands, and feet. I began trembling and vomiting. My heart was racing dangerously. I spent the night in a Reykjavik hospital.

    A hospital test confirmed that I had been poisoned —

    Ritalin mixed with MDMA (Ecstasy).

    Poisoned?? Sounds more like the start of a good night out! People pay serious money for that kind of poisoning hehe

  138. No Tony. I didn’t realise it was coming out at the time, it didn’t hurt that much. The pain afterwards was worse, had to have a re-up on the drugs.

    monty – that’s a bit different to my experiences – after any stone passed out, the pain went away.
    Are you sure it’s gone?
    They’re cunning little buggers – they can move around in your kidney a bit.

    The time the surgeon missed my 9 mm stone – I had severe pain after the operation, requiring a dose of drugs to kill it. Then 2 days later, I was back in the emergency ward cos the stone was still there.

    Just be on the lookout for a recurrence – there may have been more than one.

  142. I’ve read about people who suicided because the pain from a cluster headache was so intense that they couldn’t face it.

    How could you kill yourself when you’re in that much pain? Surely functioning at all would be impossible.

  143. Fat Tony

    Good night all – off to bed.

  144. Yes Tony, no after effects. I guess the pain on the way out was just delayed, possibly because I had taken a previous dose of oxycodone which was still circulating.

    Rest assured I will be straight back to the hospital if I wake up with that sort of pain again.

  163. Top Ender

    Ark B scam designed to attract annoying people. Spaceship leaving Tasmania in five years.

    In a bid to boost its population, Tasmania will launch an innovative strategy to persuade repeat visitors to stay for good.

    Next Thursday’s Tasmanian budget will fund a migration recruitment campaign, using social media and marketing, to target the 68 per cent of visitors that surveys show to be repeat sojourners on the island.

    The state government wants to boost the population from 520,000 to 650,000 by 2050 and has been told that targeting repeat visitors is far more effective than a general pitch for migrants.

    Tourism Tasmania’s visitor survey suggest these returnees — 816,397 last year — are the kind of skilled, cashed-up migrants the state needs. More than 85 per cent of the mainlanders who visit each year are skilled, semi-skilled, professional, associate professional or business owners or managers.

    Luring just a fraction of them to settle could be a big economic fillip to a small island economy held back by slow population growth and skills shortages in medicine, trades and hospitality.

    Treasurer Peter Gutwein confirmed the measure would be funded in the budget, saying it made sense to target those who already thought highly of Tasmania and might need less of a nudge to move there.

    “We will be providing information on the range of skills we need in our growing economy, and the significant benefits of living in Tasmania, such as the lower cost of living, housing, transport and lifestyle; not to mention the most beautiful scenery in the country,” he said.

    Tasmania has shortages of occupational therapists, audiologists, sheet-metal workers, panelbeaters, vehicle painters, bricklayers, painters, plasterers, cabinet-makers, locksmiths, roof tilers, stone­masons, glaziers, tilers, telecommunications workers, bakers, pastrycooks, arbor­ists and hairdressers.

    Tasmania’s population is grow­ing at 0.5 per cent a year and ageing faster than the nation as a whole. In 2016-17, the state gained only 42 more interstate migrants than it lost, following a net loss of 528 in 2014-15.

    The money & power at stake is not only American. It’s global and a HELL of a lot of Australian power players are deeply invested in the DC Clinton/Obama/UN swamp that Trump is draining.

    Here’s the scene that most likely got Tim Allen’s show Last Man Standing cancelled.

    His character was to give an address at his daughter’s university graduation and his speech is being vetted here by his daughter as to what he can and cannot say in generation snowflake politically correct terms:

    When ABC canceled their second most-watched comedy this season, there was little doubt in conservative fans’ minds why.

    Conservative actor Tim Allen’s wholesome, blue-collar “The Last Man Standing” sitcom lacked the liberal social and political propaganda that have become expected features of most network television shows.

    As media analyst Mark Dice describes it, Allen’s “Last Man Standing” character is “an all-American, Christian, conservative guy who had traditional family values.”

    Aside from Allen’s comparison during an interview a couple months ago of being a conservative in Hollywood to being a Jew in Nazi Germany, Dice believes particular scenes from his show may have led to its cancelation.

    When he was 25, Tim Allen did a couple of years jail for being caught as a drug mule with a kilo of cocaine, luckily at a domestic american airport.

    The autobiography is worth checking out.

    I reckon he is a good guy, ‘no enemies to the right’, but he mightn’t slip through the strict filters of some.

    “Critical reception[edit]

    Last Man Standing stars Héctor Elizondo (left), Tim Allen and Christoph Sanders
    Last Man Standing received generally negative reviews from critics. Season one has an approval rating of 14% on Rotten Tomatoes[49] and a score of 33 out of 100 on Metacritic.[50] The Hollywood Reporter commented: “A predictable sitcom with a stupid premise and bad acting.”[51] Los Angeles Times: “The jokes and plots have been efficiently constructed, but most have no traction; they slide right off you, and the characters themselves seem disconnected from one another.”[52] Conversely, Entertainment Weekly wrote: “When I look at the now-rounded softness of Tim Allen, and note once again how his sandpaper voice contrasts winningly with his hopeful eyes, it’s impossible to plunge a shiv into this series.”[53]

    Season two scored 40% at Rotten Tomatoes.[54] Entertainment Weekly commented: “I think it’s time the folks involved with Last take a closer look at All in the Family, in which the prejudice was built around real jokes.”[

    The left purges the unsound without apology, the soft-gutted right go along with it to appear balanced and fair and equal and to go along to get along.

    So we have one ATO scam that has been exposed to the light.

    How many others remain hidden?

    Politicians, who say: “we can trust the ATO and there is no need for concern”, look as if they are simply running interference for their own (or friends) scam. It is a bad look.

    Will let you know what they say.

  201. Oh come on

    I’ve read about people who suicided because the pain from a cluster headache was so intense that they couldn’t face it.

    How could you kill yourself when you’re in that much pain? Surely functioning at all would be impossible.

    From what I hear (thankfully I don’t suffer the condition myself) cluster headaches can occur periodically and in a somewhat predictable fashion, as MV mentioned above. So people who get them generally know when to expect them. They also know when a headache is starting and I guess the pain ramps up from there. Apparently you can start sucking on oxygen at this point and *sometimes* that will avert the headache but not always.

    From what I understand, it’s at these periods immediately preceding a cluster headache that suicides can occur. People remember what they went through last time and decide they can’t face it again.

    And MV is right – psylocibin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) is anecdotally regarded as something of a magic bullet cure for cluster headaches.

    I used to work with a bloke who suffered from them. He went to Bali with the specific reason to find magic mushrooms to stave off his cluster headaches. And this guy was NOT a drug-dabbling hippie type, not even slightly a Bali person – he was an early 50s grey-haired balding chap in middle management. The sort you’d see spotting trains rather than chasing the dragon. He reckoned psylocibin worked like a charm. He said you use it (I guess that means trip out on magic mushrooms) just once around the time before the period you know you’re likely to have cluster headaches, and it passes without incident.

    MV, psylocibin products aren’t exactly hard to come by if you know where to look. I’m talking about online and from the comfort of your own home, not on the street or in a forest somewhere. You’re a resourceful chap. Surely you could figure this out?

    “Privileged” male students have been told to be more like women by curbing their confidence and refraining from dominating or showing off during classes, following workshops run by the University of Melbourne Student Union.

    Men should also acknowledge that being born male and white affords them certain privileges and reconsider the use of “Australian banter” during tutorials because of the risks of excluding students from other cultural backgrounds.

    Following recent workshops on “how privilege manifests itself in tutorials”, recommendations were given to university staff last week.

    A report from the sessions, tabled with the union’s student council, reveals female and coloured students complaints about “gaslighting” — a term commonly used to describe how victims of domestic violence are manipulated by perpetrators — describing how white, male students talk over them in class, “making us question whether we know anything”.

    “Ways for men not to dominate tutorials: acknowledging the race and gender problem in order to fix it,” the report says. “Questioning yourself, when you want to speak in a tutorial, as to why you want to speak. Is it to self-aggrandise or to learn and contribute.”

    The report also advises female students against the tendency of some women to cushion opinions with qualifying statements like “this is probably stupid but …”.

    “Women should stop second-guessing their intelligence,” it says.

    “But men should learn how to speak like women (and) not speak with absolute confidence when they are in fact not sure or expressing an opinion.”

    The workshops were well-­attended, according to the report, but the concept has raised concern about freedom of expression and thought in one of the country’s most prestigious educational institutions.

    It follows February reports that new University of Western Australia students were handed a 29-point “male privilege checklist” during orientation week, which detailed perceived male advantages over females in careers, sexuality, personal safety, child rearing, and even clothing.

    Critics claim these are signs that local universities are headed the way of US campuses, where extreme political correctness has spawned a so-called “snowflake generation” — young adults prone to taking offence and flinching from views that challenge theirs

    Given that most of those students from other cultural backgrounds will apply for PR, if they haven’t already got it, wouldn’t it be advantageous for them to be schooled in “Australian banter”?

    I have headaches that leave me curled up in the bed. They come and go but I’ve never found a pattern.

    I used to get similar headaches – would last for a day or two. Painkillers didn’t do too much.

    Someone suggested artificial Vitamin C may be the culprit. I have avoided anything with “added Vitamin C” for the last 20+ years and haven’t had any problems.

    It requires reading the ingredients label very carefully – it is #300 +

    I can eat 6+ oranges and have no problems – it’s only the synthesised Vit C that causes problems,
    Vit C is used as a preservative in food and an embittering agent for some wine & beer.

    I only drink German beer or beer that I have had without problems (Crown lager is ok) – and never get a hangover.

    So try and get the artificial Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) out of your diet, and the headaches may go away.
