    whether it’s ok to wear shorts to work tomorrow?

    I am literally wearing denim shorts with no shirt doing chin ups right now.
    And I’m listening to Van Halen Dreams very loud.

    Shorts it is then.
    Thanks Stimpy.

    That’s what you serve head prefect; but I don’t eat it; don’t get me wrong, it’s cute you’re trying but I’m not convinced you’re not an alarmist even if what you say about this harken jerk is correct. The O2 layer and chlorofluorocarbons was a classic case of correlation trumping causation. After all the CFC’s have been banned for 30 years.

    In fact research from as far back as 2011 including from Murray Salby clearly shows cold is the culprit in O2 depletion:

    When I lobbed into Canada I couldn’t wait to ask someone how the heck their Army used a map, being as the North Pole is somewhere in the middle of Canada, and how did they deal with the variance?
    Never really got an answer, the nearest I got was going up to the flight deck of an airliner & asking the skipper, he didn’t really answer my question, or perhaps I didn’t understand the equipment he was using.

    The overall strength of the geomagnetic field also is getting weaker, which will tend to cause more cloud cover from cosmic ray seeding. So that will probably further cool the planet. Not quickly though.

    Police Shootings in Black America: The 2018 Data Is In

    There were 15 shooting deaths by police of unarmed black men in the United States in 2018, according to official data compiled by The Washington Post.

    The Baltimore Sun reported that 217 blacks were killed in Baltimore in shooting deaths, while The Los Angeles Times said that 124 black victims were shot and killed in Los Angeles in 2018, and the Chicago Tribune reported 279 blacks were shot to death last year.

    Just 0.01 percent of the murders of blacks in the United States are from officer-involved shootings. To state this more clearly, 99.99 percent of murders of blacks in the United States are non-police related.

    CNN analyst [Martin] accuses radio host [Webb] of ‘white privilege’ during on-air interview. Except he’s black.

    Webb then inquired, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”

    Seemingly a bit annoyed, Martin replied, “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege” before saying it would be “a whole long conversation I don’t have time to get into.”

    The bomb is dropped
    Sadly we couldn’t catch the expression on Martin’s face when Webb gave her the bad news.

    “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped,” the host began. “I’m black.”

    Is ‘platonic parenting’ the relationship of the future?

    As traditional notions of family get redefined, some people are choosing to raise children as platonic partners.

    In 2014, Charles Bourne, a then 43-year-old nurse living with his husband in Philadelphia in the US, started to think seriously about having kids. At first, he considered adoption. But after hearing about ‘platonic parenting’ from a colleague, he decided to set up a profile on Modamily, a website that helps connect people who want to start a family.

    In September, he was contacted by another Modamily member, Nisha Nayak, a psychologist then aged 40. Throughout the next few months, Bourne and Nayak met over coffee and pizza to explore their mutual desire to become parents.

    In November 2015, Nayak underwent in-vitro-fertilisation (IVF) and conceived fraternal twins. Bourne and Nayak are now proud co-parents of two-year-olds Ella and Vaughn.

    Platonic parenting, also referred to as ‘co-parenting’, is a term used to define people who are not romantically involved with each other who decide to raise a child together.

    Reasons to become platonic parents vary. Sometimes, it’s spurred from LGBT people who decide to get together and form a family that departs from the traditional heterosexual household, like in the case of Bourne and Nayak (who identifies as queer).

    In other cases, co-parenting arrangements come from long-time friends who decide to raise a child together. That was the case for Canadians Natasha Bakht and Lynda Collins. The two colleagues and friends successfully fought to set a legal precedent in Ontario family law to allow for Collins to be recognised as parent to Bakht’s son. Canadian law only allowed ‘conjugal partners’ to be recognised as parents, but the women convinced the jury that signing Collins as parent satisfied the legal principle of “acting in the best interest of the child”.

    This new trend has not come without criticism.

    Some point out that commuting between different homes can be stressful for children whose parents live apart. Bourne and Nayak live 20 minutes away from each other and split time with their kids equally, not unlike a divorced couple might. They work out issues including commuting and other delicate decisions that may affect kids together with the help of a family therapist.

    Rachel Hope is the author of Family By Choice: Platonic Partnered Parenting. She raised her first child with a co-parent who lived in a separate home within the same property, and thinks it is best to live independently but under the same roof or in very close proximity.

    Critics also worry that kids may miss out on witnessing romantic love between their parents. But she says that the worry is unjustified as kids can be exposed to that type of love through their parents’ romantic partners, or by witnessing other romantic couples around them.

    Evolving families

    There are no official statistics about platonic parenting yet, but throughout the past decade, participation in online communities for prospective platonic parents has been steadily growing.

    Ivan Fatovic started Modamily in 2011 after realising that many of his friends and colleagues were interested in having kids and starting a family, but didn’t have a partner with whom to do so. Today, the platform has 25,000 active members from around the world, and Fatovic estimates that 100 babies have been born out of matches on his site. He also says around 100,000 people combined are registered on co-parenting sites such as FamilyByDesign and CoParents.com.

    The law is slowly evolving to accommodate these relationships, in the US and elsewhere. In 2013, California governor Jerry Brown signed legislation that allows for more than two people to be legally recognised as parents. A handful of other US states currently allow for this option either via legislation or court proceedings. In Ontario, birth-parents can form a legal agreement to co-parent their child with up to four people.

    In the UK, the law allows for just two parents to be recognised as such, but a recent ruling allowed two people who live in separate homes to be recognised as platonic parents of their child (UK marriage law does not make co-living as a necessary pre-condition to grant parenting rights).

    ‘The next big shift’

    With a growing interest in platonic parenting, the next big shift will occur in language, says co-parenting author Hope.

    “We lack a vocabulary to match these types of families,” she explains. “People hear ‘husband’ and think he is the father of your child when that may not be the case.” Charlie and Nisha have gone around this by using ‘Daddy’ for Charlie and ‘Papa’ for his husband Lynn.

    Hope even believes the physical architecture of homes and neighbourhoods will change, too. “Right now our homes and neighbourhoods are designed for the nuclear family unit,” she says. “But going forward we may need new communal space, like compounds where platonic parents can co-exist in close proximity to collectively raise children.”

    Reading that report, a few things struck me. First, no attempt is made to explain why she did what she did. Second, the ACT magistrate (a woman) went pretty easy on her, verbally, considering the enormity she committed – only saying the false charges undermined genuine domestic violence accusations. What TF does that have to do with anything? Third, the victim spent four months remanded in jail before the charges were dropped. Finally, the evil woman got just two years before eligibility for parole – despite the fact that she showed no remorse and has not apologised. IMO, she should have been sent down for at least seven years.

    Yup:

    The four-year-olds promptly break into fits of hysterics. Falling pregnant with triplets after a punishing round of IVF treatment was Siddique’s catalyst for returning to Perth to live.

    Craig McLachlan lawyers delay defamation case after criminal charges laid

    Deborah Cornwall The Australian January 17, 2019

    The defamation action by Gold Logie winning actor Craig McLachlan against two media outlets has been indefinitely delayed following an 11th hour bid by his legal team who claimed proceeding with the defamation trial next month would lead to a serious “miscarriage of justice”. The abrupt end to the year-long McLachlan defamation saga follows a decision last week by Victorian police to charge the former Rocky Horror Show star with a string of criminal offences, including one count of common assault and eight counts of indecent assault relating to alleged incidents that occurred in 2014.

    The 53-year-old actor has been ordered to appear at Melbourne Magistrates’ Court on February 8, 2019 — just four days after the month long defamation trial was slated to begin on February 4 in the NSW Supreme Court before a four-person jury.

    ….

    Justice McCallum said the decision by Victorian Police to charge McLachlan on the eve of the defamation trial was not the fault of either party in the proceedings.

    She also speculated whether the intense media coverage over the impending defamation trial had “prompted the Victorian Police to make a decision” and lay charges after a “rather leisurely” 12 month investigation.

    They were quicker with tits and the r.pe allegation; he was off after a tête-à-tête with the wallopers and a nice cup of tea. The 2 media outlets McLachlan was suing were the abc and fairfucks. Strange innit.

    Webb then inquired, “How do I have the privilege of white privilege?”

    Seemingly a bit annoyed, Martin replied, “David, by virtue of being a white male you have white privilege” before saying it would be “a whole long conversation I don’t have time to get into.”

    The bomb is dropped
    Sadly we couldn’t catch the expression on Martin’s face when Webb gave her the bad news.

    “Areva, I hate to break it to you, but you should’ve been better prepped,” the host began. “I’m black.”

Until you demonstrate the courage of your convictions like the other side should too, you’re talking shit. I’m not interested in propaganda from either side any more until I see skin in the game – white, black, yellow, I don’t care, unlike you.

    The sceptics aren’t lying.

    Unlike the other side, a lot aren’t. I’ll grant you that, but some are clowns. Putting up charts longer than a few decades at the most is total baloney and that applies to both sides. We DO NOT have the technical means to even measure an average global temp for the oceans or the land. Moreover, the climate is extremely complex and anyone who says they understand it holistically is a bullshitter.

    Stochastic factors. Just like the stock market head prefect: educated guesses but predictions are still based on luck more than good management.

    It’s not like the stock market at all. Firstly it’s more complex and we can’t even predict that. Secondly, educated guesses can easily be wrong. So, if the gerbilists are wrong, we’re financially fucked over big time. If the sceptics are than we’re potentially fucked. But to repeat again, the Climate is too complex for us to understand even though people like you and Harksie pretend to. You don’t.

    They readily admit the weather and climate are unknowable at the current level of science.

    Actually Cohenite, much of it is fairly well known, and predictable. Climate goes in roughly 30 year cycles – 30 years of warming, followed by 30 years of cooling, with each period of warming slightly warmer than the previous. These cycles fit into a roughly 150 years of gradual warming, followed by a 150 years of gradual cooling.

    A 30 year cycle of warming finished around 2000, and a 30 year cycle of cooling began. 2000 also marked the end of 150 years of gradual warming, and the beginning of our 150 year decline into cooling. I learned this stuff back in science in the early Sixties.

    The spanner in the works of prediction comes from the fact that we are now measurably entering into a Grand Solar Minimum, which traditionally means cold. this solar cycle became apparent in 2008, qhen Watts started writing about it.

    With just over $18 billion to his name, capitalism has been good to Ray Dalio: He started his hedge fund, Bridgewater Associates, out of a two-bedroom New York City apartment in 1975 and it now manages $160 billion in assets and is the largest hedge fund in the world, according to Forbes.
    Quite literally, Dalio has built a fortune thanks to capitalism. But he’s also keenly aware that it is a deeply flawed system.

    “Capitalism basically is not working for the majority of people. That’s just the reality,” Dalio said at the 2018 Summit conference in Los Angeles in November. Monday, Dalio tweeted a video of his Summit talk.

    Yep. The corporatist system has destroyed the middle class and gutted opportunity.

    https://www.cnbc.com/amp/2019/01/16/bridgewaters-ray-dalio-capitalism-is-not-working-for-most-people.html?__twitter_impression=true

  149. Infidel Tiger

    Further, Dalio points to a survey by the Federal Reserve showing that 40 percent of adults can’t come up with $400 in the case of an emergency. “It gives you an idea of what the polarity is,” Dalio said. “That’s a real world. That’s an issue.”
    And Dalio says the income gap will only get worse.
    “We’re in a situation when the economy is at a peak, we still have this very big tension. That’s where we are today,” he said in November. “We’re in a situation where, if you have a downturn, and we will have a downturn, I believe that — I worry that that polarity will become greater.”
    In fact, Dalio said that the President of the United States should declare the current wealth gap a national emergency.
    “If I was doing it, I think that you have to call that a national emergency,” said Dalio. Then, reasoned Dalio, the President could “[take] responsibility for changing those metrics. I think there’s a lot that can be done in private-public partnerships and so on to be able to change it, but I fear that that probably will not be done by the next time we have a downturn, and I fear for what that conflict is going to be like that.”

    It always amuses me that Clementine Ford nowadays refers solely to “white men” in her daily bulletins of androphobic mania. As I’ve said before, this means she regards black and brown and yellow men (who do most of the world’s raping and monstering of women) as associate women. In other words, as boys. Which is what black men used to be called in Dixie.

  184. Armadillo

    Bollocks to that. I feel no shame regarding either of them.

    That’s one cold hearted bitch. Icy cold.

  185. Armadillo

    Shea probably the type to cry when her pet rabbit dies, and deliver the eulogy at the funeral service.

  186. Armadillo

    I’m on the verge of calling bullshit. The odds of one bloke even going there is slim. Two would be an impossibility.

  187. Armadillo

    Brain bleach required. OMG.

  188. None

    I avoid reading Clementine Ford, but someone excerpted a couple of her articles when she was pregnant I think it was and she was writing about how surprised she was to find out that girl babies were born with all the follicles they will ever have. She almost began to speak of the unborn as actual humans. Let me also say that Ford is so invested, so invested in her feminist schtick that if she ever had a twinge of remorse over her abortions she would suppress it and never dare to express it. Her dad seems like a pretty normal decent conservative bloke. And yet he and his wife managed to raise a man-hating, baby-killing fuckwit.

  189. Armadillo

    Her parents are absolute failures. They should be ashamed of themselves.

  190. Armadillo

    Clementine is a foul mouthed sloth covered in tattoos. What lays beneath is even more hideous. No soul and an icy heart.

  191. Armadillo

    It’s not as if Clem is so stupid that she doesn’t know what a contraceptive is. Not once. Twice.

    It’s like intentionally having sex with someone when you know you are HIV positive. It’s murder.

  192. struth

    Maybe schools had something to do with the brain washing of Ford???
    I’d wager the c…ts in education saw a fertile spot between her ears.

  193. struth

    None was it you that noticed my changed avatar?

    Yours now too.

  194. struth

    No mines back to purple.

  195. Armadillo

    No one will recognise either of you. Put in a complaint.

  196. struth

    It’s not true trans behavior

  197. struth

    Mine was just sort of experimenting in college.

  198. Armadillo

    I’m getting out of here before Tom arrives. Don’t “hog the thread”, Struth. He doesn’t like it.

  199. struth

    Oh I can see what’s going on here Arma………what is not being said.

    Yawn, tired tired tired…….
    Best I put the phone down now………….

    Two things I’ve noticed here in the States:

    1) far less man-buns

    2) far less tattoos. On the women they’re known derisively as “tramp-stamps”.

    Then again, we haven’t ventured much into trailer-trash territory.

    The Iranians consider themselves as the first Aryian race. Leftie Hitler fanboy mOnster would love em.

    Most people would think you’re joking, Armadillo, but I know your not.

    At once, the German Foreign Office issued a press release stating that the reports were unfounded. The Egyptian and Iranian ambassadors were assured that the Nuremberg laws targeted only Jews. Whereas the Egyptian ambassador had merely requested clarification that Egyptians were not targeted by German racial laws, Tehran’s ambassador demanded a clear statement that Iranians were considered racially related to the Germans. A year earlier, Riza Shah had ordered that his country be called “Iran” instead of “Persia” in international affairs — the name “Iran” is a cognate of “Aryan” and refers to the “Land of the Aryans” — and Iranian officials made no secret that they believed this term useful given that “some countries pride themselves on being Aryan.”

    No wonder meaningful discussions have dwindled away.

    Hehe, Mike Lester for me. Nice riff of this story:

    ‘Are we supposed to pick up the phone and then do it?’ Hilarious footage shows two teenagers completely baffled by a rotary telephone when given four minutes to make one call (10 Jan)

    I really do hope no one tries the same stunt with two 17 year olds and a straight razor.

    Two items from the BBC overnight:
    First, they took very seriously the Lancet’s loopy “no meat for you” report. It was presented as something that had to be grappled with rather than dismissed for what it is.
    Secondly they devoted an entire episode of The Inquiry to the topic of impeaching Trump, with more than a taste of “it should happen soon”.

    I’m getting really confused by the cultural appropriation thing.

    Thanks Christ for air conditioning..

    Apart from bush fire tragedies, it is
    believed that more than 200 persons
    have died as the result of the heat
    wave in which three states-Victoria,.
    New South Wales, and South Austra
    lia-have sweltered during the past
    week.

    Well if Brooke Boney can claim aboriginality, Ed Case can be an Asian, if he wants.

    This is not a heat wave, at least here on the NSW Central Coast. Cool nights and mornings at 23 deg and the weather map shows that extends up to Gunnedah at 24 deg. Then south of Sydney Bowral at 19 deg. Sure it warms up during the day but it is Summer- remember that?

  214. Biota

    Nice collection again Tom, thanks.

    Where would we be without cigarette and alcohol taxation?

    Electricity is now treated the same in the West – a ‘sin’ tax.

    How fake allegations landed an innocent man in jail

    The plan was to say that he had raped her. But Canberra prosecutors told a court on Thursday that the 28-year-old woman had begun spinning the stories she would later tell to police a month earlier.
    The couple’s relationship had ended when in February 2014 the woman’s ex partner started a court case to sell their Bonner home. The next day the woman’s mother put a caveat over the house, and the day after that the woman complained to police of domestic violence. Her ex partner was arrested in uniform and in front of his colleagues at his job as a corrections officer at the Alexander Maconochie Centre. He was given bail though the court imposed strict conditions.
    But the domestic violence allegations were only the beginning. “How it can be manipulated so easily is astonishing,” the victim said at a sentence hearing on Thursday, of a justice system that failed to detect the woman’s lies.

    Airconditioner use sends power bills skyrocketing in heatwave
    Sheradyn Holderhead, The Daily Telegraph
    January 18, 2019 12:00am
    Subscriber only

    Sweltering households in NSW are paying more than a third extra for their daily electricity needs during the heatwave as cranking airconditioners increase demand on the grid.

    The pressure was further intensified because the sweltering conditions failed to fire up wind farms, which met just 4.2 per cent of the national demand in the past three days — a 40 per cent drop on their average contribution.

    NSW was forced to import power from Queensland and Victoria to keep prices down while supply was stretched thin.

    A spokeswoman for the Australian Energy Market Operator — which runs the national grid — said sharing power across state borders helped to “ensure the ongoing secure and reliable operation” of the network.

    “We are closely monitoring the situation this week and will be proactive.”
