    Rubbish, as usual you have your head up your arse which is why you are another scroll by. You are just another brainless idiot on the Gold Coast, the place if full of them so at least you’ll be with intellectual equals. 

    Uh-huh.

  4. JC

    Did that happen?
    Unless you are the life insurance company, perhaps don’t go there.

    Of course it happened, because Hammy’s sister was Hammy pretending it was his sister to announce his death. And I didn’t just ask for a death certificate. I wanted to see a certified scanned copy.

    It was bullishit.

    Hammy was just before my time.
    His sister did a guest post, yeah?

    Not sure how we came to find out of Hammy departing.

    I decided it might be suss, but Hammy was an impenetrable contrarian who wouldn’t feign his own blog death to escape an awkward spot.

  9. egg_

    Hammy even entered Interruption Lotto on a Q&A thread.

    Talking of women in Leadership, ABC RN has this show on right now with Larissa Behrendt. Just one long indig/minority whingefest. Nothing they can’t find to complain about.

  11. Arky

    Not sure how we came to find out of Hammy departing.

    ..
    It was:
    “I don’t know if this is the right place, but my brother Philbert Hamilton mentioned on his deathbed a blog called cat something or other and he wanted me to tell you he had been pulling your dingus all these year”.

    I decided it might be suss, but Hammy was an impenetrable contrarian who wouldn’t feign his own blog death to escape an awkward spot.

    Hammy’s logo was an image of James Scullin – the most ineffectual Prime Minister this country has ever had.

    I blame Lockdown.

    I slowed down to make a left turn turn today when the car behind me blasted me with 30-seconds of non-stop horn. Caught a glimpse of the driver, expecting it to be some simian example of Westie woggery.

    Old guy, in his seventies at least.

    Yesterday, told the checkout chick that the rules stopping her packing my grocery bag were stupid.

    Snapped she: “Well I don’t make em. Don’t blame me.”

    Yes, indeed, Calli. Tempers are fraying all over.

  16. Leigh Lowe

    And I didn’t just ask for a death certificate. I wanted to see a certified scanned copy.

    Are you Richard Branson?
    Airlines used to offer cheap fares on compassionate grounds if you were flying interstate for a relative’s funeral.
    Except they wanted a copy of the death certificate as evidence before giving the discount.
    Sure.
    Sidle up to the next-of-kin graveside and ask for a copy of the death certificate so you can clip $200 off an airfare.

  17. calli

    Hammy’s sister emailed Sinc. Because Hammy left some sort of instruction on the event of his demise.

    Wonderful stuff. If true, it was the most perfect trolling of all time. Unsurpassed in excellence.

    One notices that the more a poster has his inadequacies shown up, the more he feels the need to post his 2 line obscure crap.

    I got busy at work and decided he needed to die.
    Maybe I should have just sent him on a cruise out of internet range for a while.

    From Mitch M. at 8:11 pm:

    If a poster offers material in the knowledge it is likely to attract a first class (and highly amusing) mocking then that is all it is – mocking. Pretending a week later that it was “insulting” is just that – a self serving pretense.

    Rubbish, as usual you have your head up your arse … you are another scroll by. … another brainless idiot on the Gold Coast, the place if (sic) full of them … with intellectual equals. Your comments … turgid and devoid of content … wasting electrons. This moment recent comment of yours [“This moment recent comment of yours” – say what?] proves the argument … completely fucked in the head.”

    Gees ya speak well for a blokette with such a huge chip on your shoulder – does the internet cause you grief? Teeth grinding? Cold sweats? Does it drive you to taking air swings at strangers? Do you find yourself being dropped on your flabby arks often?

    Time to stop taking it so seriously, grasshopper.

    Mocking maybe hurtful depends on how you take it but: Insulting=Mocking?

    A new concept?

    At a personal level the line between mocking and insulting is so thin we need an electron microscope to perceive it. Mocking someone is poking fun at them in a cruel way. If you think a great many people don’t find that insulting I suggest you try going out into the street mocking people and measure their reaction. In public life we have to play the averages and mocking someone will much more often than not be hurtful to them. Trying to distinguish mocking from insulting is splitting hairs that ignores the ambiguity of language.

    I find it odd that in a forum that triumphs Western Civilisation the linguistic association between civilisation and civility appears to be absent. An anthropologist commented that modern humans survived while other didn’t because we learned to be more co-operative rather than being more intelligent. Homo erectus brain size is not that much smaller than ours, Neandertals was bigger than ours, but we survived. The fascinating aspect of that is Erectus has a much flatter forehead than us and Neandertals brain size is to the posterior rather than the frontal regions. At the very front of our frontal lobes are the orbitofrontals. What happens when those are damaged, as happens with some sociopaths, disinhibition leading to sexual promiscuity, violent behavior, and reckless risk taking. So civility, more than mockery, more than intelligence, is what makes civilisation possible.

    Here’s an ironic mockery of me that occurred many months ago. IFK accused me being like one of his autistic staff because I “googled” some biomedical literature. He meant to insult me. I found it funny because I don’t search for biomedical literature with google, starting with pubmed is the typical guide, and Aspies have on average a 10% higher IQ than neurotypicals.

Headless dispatch rider returns & the Germs appear spouting gibberish. ‘On my signal unleash hell’ Rusty’s final order. Then ‘Hold the line’ as they charge. Combined arms assault, with cavalry, pretty serious artillery fireballs/big spikes, infantry & attack dogs. Foregone conclusion as Roman discipline mops up the barbarians in a few minutes. Slo mo sequences & mood music as the camera show’s Rusty killing savages left & right then announcing to cheers ‘Roma victor’.

    It was fucking hilarious. Election day, November 16th and the entire blog was congratulating USSR on picking Trump to win. USSR didn’t really predict Trump winning, it was basically a great example of prediction bias. USSR loved Trump so USSR predicted Trump would win. Anyway there were all these congrats and all USSR did was kick everyone in the head for those congrats and straight away began the pizza gate theories.

    Yeah that’s a big issue. Last week I was watching a video on a group from MIT that set up a Black Jack team to win against the casino. The students chosen were all rather smart but most the important the critical requirement was to remember the odds they were taught to memorise. It was a simple and clever system of card counting. I remarked to my friend: aspies are known to have excellent memories, they would be great at this. He pointed out to me that in a casino the social environment and distractions would drive them nuts. True.

    ‘At a personal level the line between mocking and insulting is so thin we need an electron microscope to perceive it. Mocking someone is poking fun at them in a cruel way.’

    No. No, its not. BUT I will say this, having reflected somewhat in between flogging weiners this arvo with Barry.

    It is entirely possible that a person, while frequently commenting on an anonymous blog somewhere in the world can give the appearance of machismo, or whatever the feminine equivalent is. And make said commentary in such a fashion that it invites mockery and so on. And gets it. Then reacts, and the manner of the reaction causes even more mockery.

    Said machismo or whatever COULD be a façade, a thin veneer masking something else behind it that might need fixing by professionals used to fixing such things. And so, because (with very few exceptions) this is an anonymous blog it is easier to a) hand out the fixin’s, and b) have no real knowledge of the impact of the aforementioned fixin’s.

    Sheesh, some people might rely on a blog as their only social interaction in life.

    There are robust and resilient punters among us. Some might present as such, but in IRL they MIGHT be anything but. And yes the Cat is Thunderdome, which I love love totes love but through no real fault of our own we MIGHT MAYBE be doing some unintentional damage. And yes I know the heat and kitchen thing, but SOME might initially think they can hack it but can’t, hand out a bit and then cop a lot and by then it’s too late.

    I don’t follow Rafiki’s anonymous suing argument, primarily because it’s stoopid. But I DO think that blog management might have a requirement to provide a conversation pit that isn’t a free-for-all, all the time, and that MAY have impacted recent decision making.

    And I suspect, but don’t know, that that’s what MAY have happened. Maybe even to more than one at the same time. I do not know. Just a theory.

    So, in summary – stop picking on me, you dorks.

    Agree with your arguments.
    You do not mock strangers to start with unless you are an idiot just asking for it.

    People who are so sensitive and vulnerable as to take offence and collapse in a heap when confronted on the internet, shouldn’t be on it in the first place or select the blogs suited to their temperament and ego.

    I admit they can’t be helped they are drawn to it like bees to flowers.

    You’re alright Twodix. I know how you feel. It’s like when you are at work as a young man, and you go in to use the toilet. Just as you walk in the door the Samoan is stepping out of the shower stall.
    That image will be with you forever, punched into your brain as if by a ten ton press stamping a hole in a metal plate. As his leg comes out of the stall, you glance at the movement, and bouncing on his knee is the knob of his gigantic cock.
    Stunned, you walk robotically to the urinal, unzip, and look down at the average-sized tool you are holding in one hand, perhaps requiring only two fingers to hold up. At that moment, everything in your life comes into astonishing focus. You are average. You reel back through your few brief years of adult life, and see, for the first time, that there is nothing at which you excel. There are some things you are quite good at, some things you are a bit useless at, but nothing about you stands out as exceptional.
    You, by design, are incapable of changing anything at all in this life of any consequence whatsoever. While the Samoan will cut a swath through life with his freakishly, comically enormous penis, gleefully showing it off to anyone who shows the slightest potential interest at all, you will go through life as a completely unremarkable non-entity.
    When you die, some people will be a bit sad for awhile, but pretty quickly life will go on as before, with nothing of importance altered to show that you made any major impact on anything at all.
    Your ghost will meekly flit off to the purgatory where men with average sized cocks keep company with unimaginative freckly lumpen middle aged ladies of a polite demeanour who like to read Agatha Christie and gossip without real rancour or insight.

    No more than universities, they are funded by the Commonwealth but the land upon which they sit is State land not Commonwealth land. Clean up your own mess dear.

    Totes different to universities, BABL. Nursing homes in Australia are mostly located in the States but not on State land. They are 95% Commonwealth funded and regulated, but largely owned and operated by the Churches and the Morans. Ministerial responsibility rests solely with the Commonwealth, currently that yuuugely competent Richard Colbeck. Once was Bronnie Bishops portfolio but she couldn’t even sort out what a kerosene bath was.

    Try to keep it real. The post is all about C.L.s dislike of women, be they politicians or police. Especially police. And now yours too. That’s nice.

    That is all.

    Leigh, Rex, no, this ‘Top of the Lake’ is a new – return – series. They have obviously learned nothing.

    Some guy gets on there (clearly a troll) pretending to be Indian and starts calling Paki cricketers cheats and homos.
    It blew up in about 48 hours.

    It took that long ?

    That is factoring in a little bit of patronising patter to start, followed by some pot-shots about skill level, then it got to cheating and sexual innuendo.
    The unhinged blow-back was something to behold.
    And they probably can’t use the “it was late, I was pissed” defence.

    Let me know how it goes.

    CL dislikes women….since when

  213. Nick

    Or my mother just died.
    It’s always fun watching Indians calling each other monkeys, laughing at those for their dark hued skin I. A relative sense

    Is this a renamed open thread?
    I came on here expecting to yell get ’em all back in the kitchen, and it just seems to be anything but a place to winge about bloody women.
    I was brought here under false pretenses.

    Well in fairness, Bird had to get his training wheels somewhere.

    JC (demand a Death Certificate), yes indeed Ollie Reead did indeed cark it mid shoot (in a bar I understand demanding more to drink on the floor) & they had to at great expense CGI him back. Blew budget by like $2M 1999 dollars.

    And what chances they got “Death, Disability and Falling of the Waggon” insurance cover on Ollie?

  217. hey are 95% Commonwealth funded and regulated, but largely owned and operated by the Churches and the Morans

    I assume the Morans meant a hitherto non-famous family of thrifty accountants and investment bankers, not THAT Melbin family of colourful dispute resolution identities.

    Or a horrific spelling error Grig’s non-sockpuppet account could never recover from.

    I would like to know more.

    Hello, Tal!

    Good to see you.

    How are you doing during T.D.T.?

    (This Difficult Time).

  219. Rex Mango

    Can I just say controls nursing homes, Commonwealth, or State Governments is of no moment to me. Women in leadership is a different matter:

  220. Tal

    Struth I’m making sandwiches
    Anything else

  221. The past 5 or 6 years haven’t been good for monst
    🤣🤣🤣
    Poor bastard.
    Now he knows what Losing feels like?

  222. Nick

    Rex, the worm that turned!!
    A classic.

  223. There you go.

    I had never heard of Moran Health Care Group before.

    The things you learn here.

  224. Perhaps there could be a great slaying of our elites at Etihad Stadium a la Gladiator. The Battle Of COVID-19.

    Same. I must confess to a certain level of disappointment. Ahh, well. Off to bed.

  226. Tal

    CL (me darlin boy) I’m doing well you ok?

  227. Top Ender

    Aaaaaaarrrrggghh Jim lad!

    Avast me hearties!

    Phrasing.

  229. I am in awe that a luminary such as Tal is back.

    What’s next, the great Soon returns on a gleaming white stallion with a chest that can bench 500 lbs, a massive two handed sword, a beard bigger than Ned Kelly’s and he whips the current blog chimp (erroneously called the *Doomykins*) into shape?

    Hands up, who wouldn’t attend Gladiator Games if they were reopened? Certainly beats Lazio v Roma.

  231. struth

    This time of night just a nice cup of tea and maybe a couple of squares of dark chocolate might be nice.
    White and one thanks.

  232. JABL

    Free Radical put down the bong

    y\You made exactly no sense.

    And you do not understand the difference between State and Commonwealth Land.

    You are ipso facto an idiot.

    Sorry Rex I can’t watch anything with Elisabeth Moss now.

    She’s a scientologist loon and she’s only in roles where white men are evil x**ts.

    I hope what she finds what she is looking for. That is a giant space alien god to cleanse her soul in a volcano that gets nuked.

    LOL

    I hoped that Scientology has long since receded into obscurity. There is very old documentary about how Hubbard started it. They were interviewing his secretary and the look on her face as she describes the souls\volcanoes thing says it all. Hilarious. Yet millions came to follow that tale … .

    Just binged on a new amazon prime show called upload. Funny, but also some deep philosophical bits about eternal life on a computer.
