    Change of pace. Great work from the kids.

    Superb!

    I could hear the tiger mums purring happily in the background.

    Glad they skipped the Gigue; IMO it detracts fromthe majesty of the Canon.

    So are you on the skids now, or is everything OK?
    Good luck, mate. These are shitty days we’re going through.

    I’m ok for the moment, hanging in there. 5 minutes after they announced the Voluntary Redundancies my boss called to check I wasn’t bailing, probably a good sign. I should have leveraged that!

    Trying to put together a deal to do something in the islands, I think both the company and Australia are rooted. Things falling into place for that, will know in the next month if it has any legs.

    Might have to tap Uncle JC, he said he always wanted to own a refinery, but not sure if he had coconuts in mind!

    It’s fucking crazy and grossly irresponsible. Illegal. Do not do it with any car on the streets.

    Now with that said and done, jump in! 😎 Gunner, choose a ride.

    True, except the Judgment might be by a mob of super pissed off punters.

    In other amazing news I have the pulse rate of an elite athlete.
    When I used that line the doc laughed and said that was an ambitious differential diagnosis.

    50 bpm is admittedly a little laid back even for me.

    ” Remember that “leering” is “harassment”.

    Sometimes it really is though. I like the way this woman deals with it, worth it if you can last until the end for the punchline.”

    There is some garbage available on the internet for dills to waste time watching. That is a fine example. Ten seconds is way more time than it deserves.

    Has anyone seen a poll for the QLD election?

  12. Bruce of Newcastle

    Mole – Excellent! I’ve cracked 49 twice. But after a winter of virus and misery and gluttony currently in the sixties. Hoping to get down to 55 or so in the next month.

  13. Rockdoctor

    Frollicking, had a resting bpm at 50 about 5 years ago along with a BP at 117/71 that had a doctor freaking that I had problems. I was very fit then though carrying some weight, however BP when I don’t get white coat fever is usually about 120/70. ECG showed nil issues. Interesting how despite the differences between every human Doctors can freak out if a result doesn’t fall within the accepted parameters.

    One of the pieces TE put up this morning said the NT jacks were training 22 people called Aboriginal Liaison Officers to fix everything that’s wrong with Alice Springs, which sounds just peachy.

    Except there aren’t 22. There are ten starting a three week course on Monday. Of those ten, seven are already ALOs and are there to help the remaining three into the role. Allegedly.

    Speaking of which – they have no powers to do anything except wear a shirt with ALO written on it. They cannot enforce anything, and are there – sometimes – to help work out where a bloke who’s gone scrub might turn up. Speak to the older people in camps. Try and calm down family barneys, which they’ve been spectacularly unsuccessful at to date. Apparently.

    I have no idea why they’d say such a stupid, easily disprovable thing.

    There are over 250 jacks and jackettes in Alice Springs. This is a town the size of Horsham.

    One of the pieces TE put up this morning said the NT jacks were training 22 people called Aboriginal Liaison Officers to fix everything that’s wrong with Alice Springs, which sounds just peachy.

    Aboriginal police officer, posted to a Wheatbelt town, received a deputation from the local “tribal elders.”

    He had no authority over them. If he arrested any of “their mob”, the rest would get together, and burn his house down. How do you deal with that shit?

  38. Zyconoclast

    Red Bull’s engine partner Honda is to leave Formula 1 at the end of 2021.

    Honda said the move was a result of the transformation of the car industry away from internal combustion engines.

    They are pursuing “carbon neutrality by 2050” through “future power-unit and energy technologies, including fuel-cell vehicle and battery technologies”.

    Tasers are not an automatic home run by any stretch. If you can see it’s not working or didn’t work, don’t just fucking hang onto it, drop it and grab something else.

    I mean obviously, the best solution would have been setting up the feelings chart, followed by a kind word and then use of the air-cooled, gluten-free net gun.

    As Volkswagen Group transitions towards an electric car future, executives at the car company may be considering selling Lamborghini and Bugatti, according to a report from news outlet Reuters.

    The unnamed sources say the company is reviewing how some of its niche brands – which also includes Ducati motorcycles – can be restructured, realigned, or even sold off, as the business moves towards a future with electrified powertrains.

    Why Do So Few Tourists Visit Belarus?

    Belarus remains a blank spot on the map for many foreigners. A mere 137,000 tourists visited the country in 2013—twenty-one times fewer than the number who visited tiny Estonia.

    Onerous visa requirements, combined with an underdeveloped service industry, undermine the country’s efforts to attract foreign visitors.

    For Subway, A Ruling Not So Sweet. Irish Court Says Its Bread Isn’t Bread

    That’s because its bread has too much sugar, the court said Tuesday. The country’s Value-Added Tax Act of 1972 says tax-exempt bread can’t have sugar, fat and bread improver exceed 2% of the weight of flour.

    In Subway’s recipe, sugar makes up 10% of the weight of the flour, according to the judgment. That’s five times what the law deems acceptable.

    The law distinguishes “bread as a staple food” from other baked goods that “are, or approach, confectionery or fancy baked goods.” In other words, the court found that Subway’s bread is perhaps legally closer to cake than bread.

    True, not a lot to attract visitors to Belarus, but you have to realise those visiting Estonia are mostly actual descendants or former Estonians. The place has lost a significant number of its citizens shortly after the war and under the soviet regime.

    NYT-

    “Trump’s virus case is mild so far, with cold-like symptoms.
    President Trump is showing symptoms of the novel coronavirus, but mild ones, according to two people familiar with his condition.

    The president has had what one person described as cold-like symptoms. At a fund-raiser he attended at his golf club at Bedminster, N.J., on Thursday, where one attendee said the president came in contact with about 100 people, he seemed lethargic.

    A person briefed on the matter said that Mr. Trump fell asleep at one point on Air Force One on the way back from a rally in Minnesota on Wednesday night.

    You sir, are a much-needed valve of happiness every night. If you show up.

  73. Top Ender

    Thanks to those who commented on the movie choices:

    Around 5pm:
    Movie choices for tonight from the home storage:
    Lost in Translation – Bill Murray thing about him in Tokyo as ageing movie star talking to some young chickybabe
    Man on Fire – violent Denzil Washington revenge movie
    I am Woman – Helen Reddy biopic seeing as she’s brown bread this week. Points from the two ladies present if I choose it I suppose, but then again they’re not ultra-feminists or I wouldn’t let them in the house.
    Zero Dark Thirty – Osama Bin Laden gets brown bread too.
    Midway. Crappy looking CGI American hero drama.
    Review of all on MRQE all say they are good to excellent but what do movie critics know?
    Whatever choice I make I will get the blame for if it’s awful.
    Help me Cats!

    We went for Lost in Translation.

    Bill Murray and Scarlett Johansson did a good job, but the concept of Americans lost in Tokyo was a bit lost on all of us.

    Have you noticed the older you get the more original movies are harder to find?

  74. Dave in Marybrook

    Steve, thanks a bunch for that La La Land edit. I’m not embarrassed to say I’m longing to see that movie again, and it’s safe for kids too, which is a rarity!

    Speaking of overreaching tyrants…

    Michigan State Supreme Court strikes down Governor Whitmer’s emergency powers.

    In a landmark ruling with far-reaching implications, the Michigan Supreme Court decided Friday that Gov. Gretchen Whitmer violated her constitutional authority by continuing to issue orders to combat COVID-19 without the approval of state lawmakers.

    The court, in its 71-page ruling, found that Whitmer did not have authority after April 30 to issue or renew any executive orders related to the pandemic under the 1976 Emergency Management Act.

    The justices also found Whitmer did not possess the authority to exercise emergency powers under the 1945 Emergency Powers of the Governor Act because the act violates the Michigan Constitution.
