    Winston, go for it! If you want the high res originals let me know. Other A2A angles that need to be covered?
    Castle Doctrine?

    I was thinking of the A2A + Castle Doctrine initially and didn’t want to scare people off.
    Castle Doctrine because the threat to people in their homes is quite real, especially in Victoria.
    I didn’t want to do the Wymminses angle because my opinion is that if you don’t do the preparatory psychological background, they will approach the self defence argument from an emotional framework.
    Yes. I’m a sexist pig.
    First, one has to convince of the need for their own protection. Only then can one start to actually talk hardware. (And that goes for about 50% of the over feminised male inhabitants of this fine nation.)
    I wasn’t thinking of recruiting others, just a toe in the water to see if it was worth while doing something.

    dear dotard.

    No one here would support a Liberal/Nat premier who was acting as Dan is.
    Most here express dismay at Morrisons capitulation and stupidity in going for elimination strategy while nuking a year of other lives and livelihoods.

    And Im 93.1% sure if a Lib run police jurisdiction was acting to prevent people searching for a lost kid people would be just as disgusted.

    Its not a “political smear” its a natural revulsion to seeing petty officials let off the leash to embrace their inner totalitarian.

    I also note you were happy to gloss over the little list of “why Victoria is shit” list i posted before, I assume because you are sanguine about the contents.

    Just a howling moral vacuum shaped like a numberwang.

    Premier ‘I’ for Inconsistent
    By Fr Marcus Goulding – September 24, 2020

    I know Fr Marcus. He’s young, 29 years old, been a priest for three years. Learned the Traditional Latin Mass as well. He is one of the holiest priests, that I’ve ever had the privilege to know, despite his formation in seminary. If you’re not displaying leftism in seminary, you are a marked man.

  15. If that happens, it will be appealed

    Let him.

    He’ll lose, what sentence would be ordered instead?

    A lengthy one nevertheless.

    He murdered at least two women and raped at least three.

    Hi Winston,

    Will take a look at it!

    I had for a long time though about being tactful, but have decided to go front on. There are a lot of mentally unwell people in Australia. You’re not going to change their perspective under any circumstances.

    I think the iron is hot on the A2A topic. Most decent people I know are quietly outraged at Vikpol. Need to get them thinking.

  41. Oh come on

    As opposed to posters here who have no compunction about using someone else’s dead child as a prop in a political smear.

    Don’t worry about them. You think you’re better than them, remember. You’re the one brandishing your dead child in the way I described. The way you’re behaving is shameful.

  42. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Having dealt with spectrum issues in a son and his son, my grandson, I did think when I heard who was missing that the case might involve a fourteen year old flying off on his bike sans phone and OD’d on whatever tablets he could find due to a build-up of stressors.

    Absolutely no reason to halt the search though, in fact every reason to get as many people together as possible to hunt for the child. Arky, your words backthread show that you were a kind and capable teacher of autistic kids. I won’t slag off at Numbers for trying with them either, and I thank him for his recognition re the death of my brother noting, in condolence I think, that sibling relationships are important in that they are not those of our choice. However, re Candy, I think she has been given a fair run here, rarely denigrated for views not widely held and sometimes applauded, including by me. I think it a shame she has remained a colourless identity on the Cat, rarely arguing her case rather than simply stating it, should she be genuine. She sometimes seems trollish.

    Sheridan is right; scomo is a fucking disgrace, he has abandoned Australia:

    Australia’s great and costly retreat from coal
    Greg Sheridan The Australian September 24, 2020
    The biggest story of the moment, the biggest structural change in our politics, is that the Morrison government has admitted comprehensive and probably permanent defeat on coal. It seems like a different era in history when Scott Morrison as treasurer proudly brandished a lump of coal in parliament to demonstrate his party’s commitment to our black gold. Still the largest source of our power, still our second biggest export, coal has been placed in the Coalition’s fantasy technology basket, to be revisited one day in the mythical future when renewables don’t need subsidies, pumped hydro creates more energy than it consumes, China’s carbon market comes into operation, and Australia wins soccer’s World Cup 6-0 against Brazil.
    The new lowest common denominator on coal is we continue to export it but there are no circumstances in which we build a coal-fired power station. This is how conservative governments embrace long-term strategic defeat. They win a thousand tactical victories as they march backwards. The Coalition has lost the coal argument. It came into office in 2013 never dreaming it would abandon coal, but that is what it has done.
    Labor and the Greens have won the argument even as they have lost the elections. The conservatives — meaning the Liberals and the Nationals — have accepted defeat. The Coalition has a good chance of retaining government by arguing that it will implement the left’s policies more carefully, cautiously, modestly, competently and with less economic damage than Labor would.

    The abandonment of coal has serious strategic implications for Australia. We will never recover a robust manufacturing industry without cheap energy and we won’t have cheap energy without coal. The day after the government announced its wish list of fantasy technologies of the future — which any Labor government would have been proud to unveil — AGL Energy dumped a plan for a discounted electricity contract for Victoria’s Portland aluminium smelter. The long and the short of it is that unless the government shells out massive subsidies we are likely to lose aluminium and then steel as we continue, suicidally, our march away from any manufacturing capability.
    Don’t think that in abandoning coal-fired power we are reflecting a global trend. The only people who think that are those whose globalism em­braces New York and Los Angeles, London and Paris, and almost no other part of the world. This year Germany has opened a new coal-fired power plant. Japan has 20-odd in the works over the next five years.
    Ultra-supercritical coal-fired plants — the so-called high-efficiency, low-emissions plants — create about 30 per cent fewer emissions than old coal and a similar amount more than new gas. Such plants are being built in many parts of the world. It is a crazy woke fantasy to think coal is being phased out. Such thinking reflects a spectacular ignorance of Asia, which is becoming an ever bigger part of the global economy.
    Not the only story about coal but by far the biggest is China. The Asia Society’s Policy Institute in New York has rounded up the figures in an extremely useful paper, China’s Response to Climate Change. Almost every climate commentator in Australia refuses ever to confront the China figures. Let me offer you a few of them.
    This year alone China has approved new coal-fired power plants that can produce 17 gigawatts of energy. That is a huge capacity. And China is accelerating its approval and construction of coal-fired power plants, for that is more than it approved in the previous two years.
    Kevin Rudd, in a recent oped in The Washington Post drawing on the Asia Society paper, pointed out that the new coal-fired power plant capacity being developed in China “is larger than the remaining fleet in the United States”.
    The Asia Society records that China has 1040GW of coal-fired energy capacity, but this will be 1100GW by the end of the year. The China Electricity Council and the China State Grid both suggest raising this to 1300GW by 2030. Coal is declining slowly as a proportion of China’s energy mix but it is continuing, as these figures show, to increase rapidly in absolute terms.
    The report also demonstrates the massive increase in coal, and other fossil fuel use, taking place as part of Beijing’s Belt and Road initiative. Specifically, Chinese finance and support is involved directly in new coal-fired power plants in The Philippines, Vietnam, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Mozambique, Malawi, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Serbia. Beyond China, Indonesia has a huge program of coal-fired power plants being built. Before COVID-19 knocked everything off balance, India was planning to increase its coal-fired electricity generation by almost a quarter over three years.
    COVID-19 will slow all this, but only temporarily. What is clear is that coal is booming in most parts of the world not ruled by The New York Times or the BBC. Our corporate leaders, or many of them, are happy to recite the mantra that coal has no future, partly because they want to avoid social media campaigns against them. In the West coal is moving away from public companies and into private equity hands, or into Asian investments directly. None of the expansion of coal outlined above has been denied finance because some Western banks now find coal politically inconvenient.
    UN projections are that Africa’s population will increase to 4.5 billion by the end of this century. If any of them want to live above subsistence level they will need cheap energy. Coal is sure to play a big part.
    If you are a friend of the environment, indeed if you want to moderate greenhouse gas emissions, you will want Australian coal to be used everywhere that’s possible because ours is the cleanest coal in the world. It’s just a geological fact. If a coal-fired power station in China or India is using Australian coal it will generate fewer greenhouse gas emissions per unit of energy produced than if it is using Chinese or Indian coal.
    And as the biggest exporter (though by no means biggest producer) of coal, we could make a contribution by doing something clever on the technology of getting ever lower emissions from ultra-supercritical coal-fired energy plants. By not doing this we make ourselves poorer economically and weaker strategically, while our competitors, economic and strategic, become richer and stronger.
    The Liberals, and even more the Nationals, know all this at some level but can no longer make a fight of it. Their political judgment is probably correct. Political parties must always deal with political reality. Gas is at least better than complete renewables madness. But the Coalition had no thought of this when it entered government. Its surrender on coal ought, though, at least be noted, given its grave implications for the national interest.

    Late to the party, PETA already call milk “rape juice”

    https://www.peta.org/features/rape-milk-pork-turkey/

    Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do: to nourish their young. In order to force them to produce as much milk as possible, farmers typically impregnate cows every year using a device that the industry calls a “rape rack.” To impregnate a cow, a person jams his or her arm far into the cow’s rectum in order to locate and position the uterus and then forces an instrument into her vagina. The cow is defenseless to stop this violation.

    And more proof giving hysterical laaaadiiiies the vote was a mistake..
    Because no feminist would consume food that’s a product of rape. When you know better, you do better. Go vegan—for mothers, for sisters, for daughters, and for all females whose bodies are exploited.

    Little mother bird is still sitting on her nest, occasionally leaving if Hairy comes out to the BBQ (which we have rolled away from near where she is nesting). She always returns and I think the nest can survive quite well in the warmth of the dappled sun she receives. I am forbidden by Hairy to try and improve her sunscreening. It’s true she seems to be coping well. Dad is rarely seen but we know he is around.

    My brother was farewelled yesterday, by about 45 family and friends. A few went off immediately so that the rest of us could enjoy a pleasant spread of nibbles with tea, wine and beer, and a good time was had by all, everyone catching up with people they haven’t seen for a couple of years or more, two little toddlers, one of them ours, being delightful in their own way. My brother was a typical sort of suburban Aussie dad, with all of the usual pictures to prove it, and stories of his legendary Norton motorbike top of the list in discussion. His family was his life and he lived it well with them and for them, as their accounts of their love for all that he did for them showed in the various orations.

    I’ve just had a fantastic remedial whole body massage which thumped and stretched out the tensions of the last two weeks made worse by walking for nearly three months now with a limp. You go lop-sided. Feeling more like myself again now and the fracture and DVT are healing well. The massage was money well spent compared to the $500 in consultation fees with a specialist who told me nothing I didn’t know already. Not his fault, he was competent and I suppose he has to cover his professional costs; but I am a great fan of remedial massage now. Similar to physio, but integrated when all over. You find out which spots really still hurt.

    ScoMo can abandon healthcare, he isn’t responsible for that … he can abandon education, that’s none of his business … but he does need to ensure a working quarantine system, because that’s his duty as outlined in the Australian Constitution which ScoMo is supposed to have at least glanced at.

    Not saying there’s a Holocaust, but…’: MSNBC analyst shames Jewish voters who back Trump, says no difference between Trump & Hitler

    Morning Joe’ regular guest Donny Deutsch has told Jewish voters planning to support the Republican ticket that they need to “wake up” because there is “no difference from what Donald Trump is preaching to what Hitler preached.”

    Reacting to Trump’s Tuesday night rally in Pennsylvania, Deutsch noted a lack of diversity in the crowd, saying it reminded him of a “rally from the early ‘30s.”

    The political pundit and longtime critic of Trump then ran with an Adolf Hitler comparison, which turned into a shaming of Jewish voters who will be supporting the president in November’s election.

    “I want to talk to my Jewish friends who are voting for Donald Trump,” Deutsch told co-host Joe Scarborough, then launching into a fiery rant. Deutsch added that Trump-supporting Jewish voters are walking “like a lemming off a cliff” and urged them to “wake up” before outright comparing Trump to Hitler, saying: “And what is the difference between Adolf Hitler and Donald Trump? I’m not saying there’s a Holocaust, but when you look at the tactics, and that is where we are right now.”

    On the contrary, if you can say the shema and keep the mitzvot you are in.

    One of the Mitzvot is “You will have other other Gods before Me”. Kind of fatal if you are a Christian. Similarly the Shema is emphatic “God is One”. Christianity has God is sort of, maybe, Three.

    Morrison totally squibbed it because he wants to be popular and doesn’t want the of the activists at the ABC – that he decided to set up a “national cabinet” is the reason the states are laughing at it and giving him the thumbed nose and a black eye.

    And the same goes with nursing homes. Under Andrews infected elderly were required to be kept in the homes, thereby causing a wildfire of infection.

    Experts urge coronavirus cases in Victoria’s aged care homes to be moved to hospital (21 Jul)

    As Covid-19 cases mount in Victorian aged care facilities, experts have questioned the state’s policy of not sending all infected residents to hospital.

    But Victoria’s chief health officer, Brett Sutton, has said not all infected residents would be moved from aged care homes.

    “Sometimes the safest place for them is to remain in that facility … it’s really done on a case-by-case basis,” he said.

    Experts have cautioned that keeping positive cases where they are risks putting other residents in danger, and that infection control is much more difficult in an aged care home than in hospital.

    I don’t know what the policy is currently but given the numbers of deaths in nursing homes I have my suspicions.

    What the fucketty fuck?!? Check this shit out in the Oz Grauniad:

    The decrease in the Covid supplement is a sentence to poverty, for me and many others’
    Aidan, Freya, Jess and Jade
    Four people on income support tell us what the supplement has meant for them, and how the planned cut will impact their lives

    I’ll just show 26yo Aidan’s:

    ‘If I needed anything, I could just buy it’

    When the supplement was announced, two things happened immediately. All my worries and concerns about bills and expenses dissipated, and I thought of all the things I could do with the money. I didn’t decide to have a piss-up with mates, or blow the money on pokies (though I express my right to make frivolous bets on sporting events as an Australian.)

    I sat at my desk the day after the announcement and wrote down all of the things I didn’t have, the things I needed, and the things that need replacing.

    The first thought: I can finally replace this sunken single mattress, and buy a bedframe too. Finally, nearing 26, and for the first time in my adult life, I got a double mattress atop an actual bedframe, not the carpet in my room. I bought new bedding. Decent quality, from the store. Everything was on sale, of course – this six month supplement isn’t going to undo intergenerational penny-pinching.

    I bought a sorely-needed oil heater. I bought some new clothing (again, always shopping on sale) and as the weeks progressed, if I needed anything, I could just buy it. No second guesses. No anxiety. And this time, I wouldn’t have to skip meals to justify the purchases!

    With the supplement reduction coming soon, I just received my final payment with the full supplement – $1,181 for the fortnight. I’m now really thinking about the future, and the possibility that we return to an old system that clearly wasn’t working: welfare payments that keep us entrenched in poverty; a jobactive system that cannot find or create jobs; and the laughable system of “mutual obligations”. I think about how I and so many other Australians have been given a break from the harsh reality of poverty and welfare policing for a few months. And I think about how hundreds of thousands may have to encounter this shambolic system for the first time, very soon. – Aidan, 25, Adelaide

    26 and already a long term Centrelink client? This dude says the system clearly wasn’t working. Yeah, he clearly wasn’t either, so a perfect match. GET A JOB, YOU DOLE-BLUDGING BUM! It really isn’t that hard to get a job. Even for a mouth-breather like this guy. I bet Aiden’s got some crappy arts degree from Whyalla U and spent the best years of his youth applying for mid level management positions in the public service but kept getting turned down. Finally he concluded that there are just no jobs! And thus a 26yo is on the dole. A Filipino with little-to-no English can easily get a (legal) job cleaning offices earning minimum wage (which is actually pretty decent) and work as many hours as they choose. Go clean some offices, Aiden. Do something, anything. Look at all of the things new migrants do to make an honest living. All of the places they will go to chase the dollar – and make good money, too. No reason why any of these four losers in this Grauniad sob story couldn’t do something similar, apart from a belief that the jobs they could get aren’t good enough for them.

    There is no denying, however, that Centrelink is shit. It’s an awful, soul destroying machine befitting the awful, soul-destroying existence of welfare dependence that it facilitates. Centrelink *should* be shit. Give people some impetus to get off its mean, dysfunctional bosom. No, let’s get rid of the Coronavirus supplement. And time-limit Jobseeker payments for young and healthy people
    Haven’t found work after 18 months, two years? Cut off the bennies.

    Hi All.

    Am a bit late for the How J is J, and the J’s for Jesus = Apostasy theological argument. But I wish to add this particular jerrycan to the bonfire, courtesy of the most Pharisee of Pharisees, eminent J lawyer, star student if Gamliel and theologian extraordinaire, the Apostle Paul himself-

    Romans 2:28-29 NLT
    For you are not a true Jew just because you were born of Jewish parents or because you have gone through the ceremony of circumcision. [29] No, a true Jew is one whose heart is right with God. And true circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by the Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people.

    And from the OT source, which J folk read from, the Prophet Micah-

    Micah 6:8 NLT
    No, O people, the LORD has told you what is good, and this is what he requires of you: to do what is right, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God.

    Every single time law-abiding shooters seem to be keeping their heads above water, this or something very much like this happens:

    ‘HUNDREDS of thousands dollars’ worth of horses have been shot at a remote Northern Territory station by members of a sporting shooters’ association. Thirty of Killarney Station’s best horses, worth about $500,000, were shot by two members of the association on Sunday.

    ‘The members did not have permission to shoot in the area from Killarney’s managers or directors.’

    29 horses, there were. It was the SSAA’s NT branch, who had an arrangement with the station to rock on down and shoot. Pigs, not horses. The shooters were shown a map with the station in the middle, in the centre of a circle with a 10km radius. Told there was to be no banging inside the circle, to which they agreed.

    They found the horses 4.4km from the station centre, shot them all and then tried to drag some of the carcasses away and hide them before giving up, going back to the station and telling them they ‘maybe shot some horses they shouldn’t have’.

    ‘Killarney Station manager Jamie Laurisson said the station’s families and employees had been left rattled and dumbfounded. “It was a mind-numbingly stupid, careless and reckless act,” he said.

    ‘“The horses were not shot in a humane or professional manner as one would expect from members of a shooters’ association. Initially (there was) shock and disbelief, then grief, anger, heartbreak and devastation.”

    ‘Mr Laurisson said the station would be seeking compensation, with years’ worth of work having been put into breeding and training the horses.’

    Nobody’s taking odds on whether they’re invited back. Half a million dollars’s worth of horseflesh. Not even dog food now.

    Well, if Aiden uses a bit of initiative, he should get his RSA (Responsible service alcohol) and his RSG (Responsible service gambling) for about $100 combined and about one hour in total doing the courses online on the internet. Print out the certificates then march off to every pub/club he can find and leave a CV and copies of those certificates.

    I see that Aiden is in Adelaide and although I don’t know the Adelaide pub scene anymore, I’ll wager that Aiden will have a few hours of work, on a try out basis, within a couple of days. Unless he is completely useless, he should be able to horse-trade that into 20+ hours a week with no difficulties.

    May not be ‘glamorous’ nor what he wants to ultimately do with his life, but some money is better than no money. Alternatively, go up to the Riverland – they are screaming out for fruit pickers. Moneys good too but you are expected to work for it.

    Italians will fire hundreds of politicians after voting in a referendum to reduce the size of the country’s parliament by a third.
    The move to cut the number of politicians will save the Italian taxpayer more than $1 billion over the next 10 years.

    Around 345 politicians will have to say goodbye to ‘la dolce vita’ on their taxpayer-funded salaries and find a real job.

    Figures show that 54 percent of Italians turned out to vote in the referendum, with 70 percent of those backing the proposal to say ‘addio’ to the politicians.

    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden’s plan to overhaul the nation’s immigration system could help bring an estimated 52 million foreign nationals to the United States, a study details.

    Researchers with the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) analyzed Biden’s immigration plan, revealing that through a series of amnesty, new visa programs, and increases to existing legal immigration levels, a potential 52 million foreign nationals could be added to the U.S. population.

    ABC tweet outrages ‘boring’ South Australia

    DAVID PENBERTHY
    SOUTH AUSTRALIA CORRESPONDENT
    @penbo

    A Sydney-based ABC news editor has been labelled a dill, desperately unfunny and “the ultimate Ultimo wanker” after he used South Australia’s decision to open its border with NSW to issue a bogus health warning that people “may die of boredom” if they travelled to SA.

    The criticism even came from former senior ABC figures in South Australia, who described NSW digital editor Riley Stuart’s tweeted gag as typical of the public broadcaster’s Sydney and Melbourne-centric view of the nation.

    Veteran ABC Adelaide radio host Matthew Abraham, who co-hosted the city’s high-rating breakfast show for more than a decade, said Stuart’s tweet shed light on the attitudes that permeated the ABC’s headquarters at Ultimo in inner-city Sydney.

    Abraham revealed that Sydney-based executives used to refer derisively to the “BAPH” cities of Brisbane, Adelaide, Perth and Hobart when discussing news.

    “It reflects the entrenched superior Sydney mindset of the ABC, which I observed inside the tent for years,” Abraham said. “We used to get sneered at and looked down on all the time.”

    Abraham made the comments in his new regular spot on Adelaide’s FiveAA breakfast show, where Stuart was labelled an “Ultimo wanker” whose idea of seeing Australia was to walk from one end of Glebe Point Rd in Sydney’s inner-west to another.

    ABC Adelaide journalist Drew Radford made a similar attack on the tweet, saying it proved a “total lack of awareness of ABC being more than just Ultimo”.

    Stuart’s full tweet read: “#BREAKING: NSW residents warned not to travel to Adelaide when SA border opens tonight as they “may die of boredom”.

    Be it a sign of Adelaide’s capacity for civic pride or tendency towards hypersensitivity, even former South Australian ministers entered the throng, with Howard government minister Amanda Vanstone simply tweeting “GFY” to Stuart, an acronym for a phrase that begins with the word “go” and concludes with “yourself”.

    Long-serving state minister Patrick Conlon gave Stuart some comic tips.

    “It’s a great line to use when you can’t think of anything original, clever or funny. Well done you.”

    Adelaide’s fiercely patriotic Advertiser newspaper sent requests to Stuart for comment but he declined to respond and the newspaper may well be publishing a special wraparound edition tomorrow condemning the journalist.

    In all seriousness it is likely his tweet will cause him strife internally, as ABC news director Gaven Morris told staff last week he did not think being on Twitter was of much value to them and only exposed them to abuse and embroiled them in controversy.

    In complete contrast to the Coward of Menziesville’s attempts to score points over somebody’s death earlier today, I’d like to raise a matter of potentially some import.

    Jones is Victorian. I believe his family resides there too, while he was away earning a crust with his yapper.

    Jones is truly a great Australian cricketer. While I’m not suggesting state funeral status, I’m very curious as to what restrictions might be lowered a tad when Deano’s body is flown back home to his loved ones.

    Every single time law-abiding shooters seem to be keeping their heads above water, this or something very much like this happens

    Very interesting how this sort of stuff always “happens”.

    A whole lot of concern groups have been very critical of SSAA’s involvement in culling of pests. Most of all because of the way it legitimises firearm ownership. SSAA members apparently shooting a whole heap of horses would seem to be a very effective way to fix this. (Although they could have just been complete morons).

    400,000 Australians could be forced to wait months for JobSeeker payments

    If you both to save some money, buy some assets, you are discriminated against. You might be forced to sell shares, your boat, or rental property etc to survive because it could months\weeks before you receive jobseeker. Forced sales usually mean loss of sale value. Meanwhile losers who spend their dosh receive the payment straight away. This policy is reckless for the young on casual\intermittent employment because if you have more than $5,000 in cash you have to wait for the dole so why bother saving money because then you’ll be penalised. It’s absurd that the people who typically have most contributed to the safety net through taxes are the ones penalised when they have to rely on that safety net.

    I watched Deano make that double ton against the Windies in 89 at Adelaide.
    To call it a purple patch doesn’t cover the sublime touch he was in at the time.
    Ambrose was bowling so fast it was hard to see the ball in flight but it was equally as hard to see the ball come off Deano’s bat as he hit it straight to the boundary time after time. The best hand eye coordination I’ve ever witnessed. That’s what makes them champs and us chumps.

  200. The dark ages was caused by geological weather events that caused cold and darkness from 536 to 542 and lingered onto around 650.

    Why 536 was ‘the worst year to be alive’

    By Ann GibbonsNov. 15, 2018 , 2:00 PM

    Ask medieval historian Michael McCormick what year was the worst to be alive, and he’s got an answer: “536.” Not 1349, when the Black Death wiped out half of Europe. Not 1918, when the flu killed 50 million to 100 million people, mostly young adults. But 536. In Europe, “It was the beginning of one of the worst periods to be alive, if not the worst year,” says McCormick, a historian and archaeologist who chairs the Harvard University Initiative for the Science of the Human Past.

    A mysterious fog plunged Europe, the Middle East, and parts of Asia into darkness, day and night—for 18 months. “For the sun gave forth its light without brightness, like the moon, during the whole year,” wrote Byzantine historian Procopius. Temperatures in the summer of 536 fell 1.5°C to 2.5°C, initiating the coldest decade in the past 2300 years. Snow fell that summer in China; crops failed; people starved. The Irish chronicles record “a failure of bread from the years 536–539.” Then, in 541, bubonic plague struck the Roman port of Pelusium, in Egypt. What came to be called the Plague of Justinian spread rapidly, wiping out one-third to one-half of the population of the eastern Roman Empire and hastening its collapse, McCormick says.

    Historians have long known that the middle of the sixth century was a dark hour in what used to be called the Dark Ages, but the source of the mysterious clouds has long been a puzzle. Now, an ultraprecise analysis of ice from a Swiss glacier by a team led by McCormick and glaciologist Paul Mayewski at the Climate Change Institute of The University of Maine (UM) in Orono has fingered a culprit. At a workshop at Harvard this week, the team reported that a cataclysmic volcanic eruption in Iceland spewed ash across the Northern Hemisphere early in 536. Two other massive eruptions followed, in 540 and 547. The repeated blows, followed by plague, plunged Europe into economic stagnation that lasted until 640, when another signal in the ice—a spike in airborne lead—marks a resurgence of silver mining, as the team reports in Antiquity this week.

    Ah yes the SNAG bull…

    Yes I was bringing along a mob of about 900 of these today and there was a lot of snag stuff happening \ off

    Every occasion was an occasion to celebrate gang bangs of the unfortunate Nancy boy bull and the conga lines were impressive. A shady tree, gang bang, oh look there is a helicopter gang bang, someone looked at me gang bang, someone is getting some gangbang on and on and on, til the rumps of the Nancies were red raw.

    We wont be able to sell them, even in two months they won’t have healed up enough. They will have to be tipped out into a paddock to recover and hopefully sell next year.

    Didn’t matter what the others wanted, what the Dutchman said was what happened.

    Favourite part of their ownership: A Filipino love movie being made there, starring.. “gasp” Angel Locsin.
    Dull plot, livened by trying to work out which part of the station various scenes were shot on (homestead internals turned out to be the Manila Polo Club)
