    The stuff about this on Instapundit was fun. Good old Maoist denunciation of people who Maoistically denunciated the last bunch. The US news site of record gets a run too!

    I reckon a maximum of two more mentions of the rank idiocy of the Ballarat Flying Squad on the telly, and the local District Chief will pull it.

    Tonight, instead of marinating in buttermilk, I dry brined my chicken drummies before coating in panko crumbs + spices. Sceptical to begin with, but have to admit they turned out very, very well.

    Another yummy dish to cook with the Grandies.

    Steve Jobs died of cancer Leigh Lowe. So thats a pretty stupid question. Traditionally if someone is fat they induce a heart attack. And if they are slim they induce cancer. But who knows how the technology has progressed.

    But now we know for a fact why he had to die. Because the colour revolution got and demanded total social media lock-step North Korea like obedience. Use your brain. Try not to be an idiot.

    My apologies.
    Clearly my knowledge of these things is sadly lacking.
    The “colour revolution”?
    Who is running that?
    Or is it too dangerous to say?

  11. Dot says:

    Three weeks of rocket fueled, music at 11 fun on a tropical island under a false name and complete false background.

    Then possibly plastic surgery and never even visit her home city.

    …and nuke your entire online presence.

  12. Ed Case says:

    Steve Jobs had a Whipple Procedure, that’s what killed him, not Pancreatic Cancer, which he had when he died.

  13. Leigh Lowe says:

    Now note how the Covid requirements dovetailed beautifully with the election steal. So this idiocy that this was an accidental release has to be sent to the ash-heap of ideas that were stupid right from the start.

    Wow!
    This is big!!
    Tell us more, Milano.

  14. Dot says:

    Hmmmyes.

    Surgery to remove pancreatic cancer killed him, not pancreatic cancer.

    Might have been a delicate or complex surgery.

    I wonder why, sodium free Nayzee traffic paddle man?

  15. jupes says:

    “It’s wrapped up in modern racist policies like the cashless debit card, with deaths in custody and our failure to close the gap.

    Yeah, why should the Aborigines be responsible to send their kids to school?

    I’ve got an idea: We should double the $30,000,000,000 we spend on Abo welfare every year and change the date of Australia day. That’s bound to close the gap. Surely.

    Woh, that just screwed my worldview

  28. Dot says:

    Mmyes Grigory, you are going to permanently and irreparably damage libertarians and conservatives in Australia by LARPing as an idiot who think Steve Jobs didn’t die of pancreatic cancer, his surgery killed him, which he got for the hell of it, but he may as well have been hit by a truck – which somehow requires a partial pancreatomy.

    I think there’s something in that for all of us.

    I cleaned out my study a bit today. Over a year’s back copies of the Speccie. Noted one was 18 Jan 2020, and opened it for a quick look at the usual British Week of Major World Events that they do. Last para noted a returned President in Taiwan, and Jiangsu, a province in China of 80 million now having only 18 poor people in it. Then this simple line item:

    Preliminary tests indicated that an outbreak of pneumonia in the city of Wuhan might be caused by a new kind of coronavirus

    A small outbreak in China. Nothing to see there.

  35. johanna says:

    One of my father’s oldest friends was a very bright and successful businessman who built a company that developed and manufactured advanced medical equipment – think MRI machines and stuff like that, back in the pioneering days. He had factories in France, Germany and the US. He also had very little formal education, in other words was an autodidact of impressive proportions.

    When he got bladder cancer he decided that conventional medicine was not for him, and spent a fortune on quack cures in Mexico, the Philippines and several other places. Colloidal silver, faith healing, herbal remedies, weird diets – the whole nine yards.

    He died within a year of being diagnosed. We don’t know what the outcome would have been with conventional medicine, but it is unlikely that it would have been worse.

    Maybe his self taught expertise in medical technology convinced him that he was smarter than the experts. I dunno. But, it just goes to show that being highly intelligent and self made rich is no protection against magical thinking.

    No he died from a Whipple Prmocedure.

    Australia Day: Noongar elders Ben Taylor and Mingli McGlade open up on 18 years of ‘Invasion Day’ protests
    Rangi HiriniThe West Australian
    Mon, 25 January 2021 4:20PM
    Comments

    As most people prepare the barbie or pack the car for the beach tomorrow, Noongar elders Ben Taylor and Mingli McGlade are preparing for their 18th ‘Invasion Day’ protest — vowing to continue their fight until the date is changed.

    Uncle Ben and Aunty Mingli, as they are also known, are two of Perth’s most respected Indigenous activists.

    They are front and centre at almost every ‘Invasion Day’ protest, performing the Welcome to Country and leading the marches.

    And like many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, they have faced racism and discrimination for much of their lives.

    At 81-years-old, Uncle Ben remembers needing to get a permit to avoid jail due to the former policy which barred Aboriginal people from the CBD after curfew.

    “My dad told my mum, ‘grab the kids or we’ll get locked up,” he said.

    “My dad had a good job but when he got the job, the whitefella got the house and we had to live in the bush… What a life, we lived in degrading and dehumanising conditions.”

    Aunty Mingli said her upbringing wasn’t as bad but when she began going to school, that’s when the racist policies of this nation began to affect this little girl.

    “I remember I wasn’t allowed to use the toilet because there was a sign that said ‘no natives allowed’.

    I don’t ever remember any signs in Western Australia “No Natives Allowed.”

    Online Safety Bill 2020

    This is my third call on this topic. See first comment here.
    We are 18 days away from the end of feedback submissions (14 Feb). I do not know if any one else has read the draft documents and submitted feedback.

    I read the documents (speed read) and picked up the main points. It is possible that I may have missed something important. Here are the main points:

    a/ There is to be an eSafety Commissioner.

    b/ There will be a complaints system related to cyber-bullying of a child (under 18).
    I have no problem with this. Children should not be bullied. I will also add that parents/guardians should monitor what their children are doing with the devices they buy for children/minors in their care.
    c/ There is to be a complaints system related to cyber-bullying of adults.
    This, I think, is an area that would need clarifications. What constitutes cyber-bullying of adults? On this blog, for example, can someone claim they are being bullied?
    Which in turn will require action from the blog administrator? Which then means restrictions on free speech?

    There is the activist brigade, waiting on the sidelines, for the opportunity to shut down free speech (conservative, of course). So, this is where we have to get up and do something.
    Read the draft document, see if you can pick up the areas that may affect free speech. What do we need to do? What are the points on which we submit feedback to ensure that free speech is not lost under the guise of doing “good”.

    d/ Complaints system for non consensual sharing of intimate images.
    I have no problem with that. But anyone who is foolish enough to share intimate images with someone you don’t fully trust, needs lessons in personal responsibility.
    I don’t know if this applies to, say, an Aussie Kim Kardashian who posts skimpy outfit photos on social media and then complains about abuse.
    If someone on this forum posts one of those photos will that amount to non-consensual sharing? And the blog will get warnings?

    We can decide whether we want to act now and be alert to any possibilities that this Act could turn into a Law that could affect our freedoms.

    Or we can sit back and believe that there is nothing to worry about, yet. Then, when it is Law, we’ll have all the time in the world to complain.

  49. Ed Case says:

    About 55 years ago there was this kid who lived in the next street, he was a streaky gawk, anyway he took sick at about 13 years of age, he got sent to Brisbane, where doctors inserted a camera on a stick into an upper arm vein, wriggled it around to his heart and took pictures to try to find out what was going on.
    I remember being amazed that could be done, and that was in 1965.
    Fast forward 45 years, Tech has advanced exponentially since 1965.
    Steve Jobs is a Tech guy, he’s talking to surgeons who use the most up to date Tech in 2010, these guys sell him on a Whipple Procedure.

    People might say “Why the fuck did he do that for, the survival rate is about 10% even tho they’ve been doing it since the Forties?”
    The point is, it’s not the treatment, it’s the sales pitch that people fall for.

    Cyber-bullying material targeted at an Australian child
    (not including details here)

    (1) For the purposes of this Act, if material satisfies the following 22 conditions: 23
    (a) the material is provided on: 24
    (i) a social media service; or 25
    (ii) a relevant electronic service; or 26

    (c) an ordinary reasonable person in the position of the 1 Australian adult would regard the material as being, in all the 2 circumstances, menacing, harassing or offensive; 3
    (d) such other conditions (if any) as are set out in the legislative 4 rules; 5
    then: 6
    (e) the material is cyber-abuse material targeted at the 7 Australian adult; and 8
    (f) the Australian adult is the target of the material. 9
    Note: For serious harm, see section 5. 10

    (b) the material is private sexual material;
    then, in deciding for the purposes of this Act whether an ordinary 1 reasonable person in the position of a particular Australian adult 2 would regard the material as being, in all the circumstances, 3 offensive, regard must be had to whether the subject, or each of the 4 subjects, of the private sexual material gave consent to the material 5 being provided on the service. 6
    (3) Subsection (2) does not limit subsection (1). 7
    ———————————–
    9 Abhorrent violent material 8

    (*** left out some sections relating to intimate parts )
    Depiction of person without attire of religious or cultural 1 significance 2

    (ii) in circumstances in which an ordinary reasonable 11 person would reasonably expect to be afforded privacy.

    It is the primary responsibility of the digital technology industry to create products and services that Australians can use safely. However, experience has shown that many platforms lack the built in safety features required, or fail to appropriately enforce their terms of service.
    That is why the Government established the eSafety Commissioner in 2015 to act as a safety net for when platforms fail to keep their users safe.

    Turkey pro-government media: ‘Je ws overrepresented in Biden Cabinet’ (JPost 24)

    In Biden’s Cabinet, Catholics and Je ws dominate (19 Jan)

    I don’t exactly know what to make of this, but I do know that JPost writers have been excitedly wetting their panties somewhat. JPost used to be rightie, but like the Oz has been going leftwards at a rate of knots lately. If I had to guess I’d suspect the Je wish people in Biden’s corruptocracy are on a similar wavelength to the Catholics. JINOs and CINOs.

    When the embassy move was announced, the legacy media said this would start another Middle East implosion.
    Didn’t happen.

    Well Bern….it’s a tacit acknowledgement Trump was right…but the legacy media will never ever admit it.

    Death rate from a Whipple Procedure:

    After the Whipple procedure was introduced, many surgeons were reluctant to perform it because it had a high death rate. As recently as the 1970s, up to 25% of patients either died during the surgery or shortly thereafter.

    Since then, improvements in diagnosis, staging, surgical techniques, anesthesia, and postoperative care have reduced the short-term death rate to less than 4% in patients whose operation is performed at cancer centers by experienced surgeons. At some major centers, the reported death rate is less than 1%.

    Several Super Bowl Advertisers Bow Out over Fear of Offending Viewers

    A growing number of big-name advertisers, including Coke and Hyundai, are skipping the Super Bowl this year for fear of not striking the right tone amid America’s contentious political landscape.

    Several companies have decided not to buy Super Bowl time, some for the first time in over a decade.

    The reason? According to the New York Post, the talk from insiders is that members of multiple boardrooms are finally coming to realize that they’re going to infuriate half the country no matter what they do.

    In recent years, advertisers were thrilled to push the Black Lives Matter and Antifa ideologies or to push transgenderism and the #MeToo movement. But this year, not so much.

    “Every client conversation I’ve had these days is about who is going to be offended by this ad,” Rob Schwartz, chief executive officer of ad agency TBWA\Chiat\Day, told the Post. “There’s a lot of discussion about risk mitigation. What that tends to do is that it makes things very bland and not effective, or it forces you to look at universal topics like hope or humor.

    “The country is so divided and split right down the middle that I don’t think that there’s a commercial that will appease both sides,” added Bill Oberlander, co-founder and executive creative of ad agency Oberlander.

    The result has been that the Super Bowl will not sell out of its ad spots this year, the paper reported. And some of the companies opting out have been with the NFL’s biggest game for over a decade.

Quentin got a bit under the collar when Rowan asked him to then give up his house which is on stolen land, all huffy about how it’s nothing like that. It is the only logical conclusion.

    By the way, it’s time to dismiss Ita from her job.

  98. Frank says:

    For Annie, some Jobsian AIDS conspiracy. Although the caveats that go with the docs are a bit of a letdown.

    Due to the contradictory dates, possible evidence of forgery, strong motivations for fabrication, and few motivations for a legitimate revelation, the images should not be taken at face value.

    Shit

    German district court has declared a strict lockdown imposed by the government of the central state of Thuringia last spring unconstitutional, as it acquitted a person accused of violating it.

    A trivial case about a man violating strict German lockdown rules by celebrating a birthday with his friends has ended up in a decision the German media described as “politically explosive.” A district court in the city of Weimar did not just acquit the defendant but also stated that the authorities themselves breached Germany’s basic law.

    Thuringia’s spring lockdown was a “catastrophically wrong political decision with dramatic consequences for almost all areas of people’s lives,” the court said, justifying its decision. It particularly condemned a restriction limiting private gatherings to the members of one household and one person outside of it.

    He was going to release a product called iBanana, which was going to revolutionise the market and kill Google forevermore.

    “Make it look like an accident,” we were told.

    It turns out that contriving to drop a piano on a guy is both messy and improbable. And even more so when the assassination team refuse to use the issued upright pianola on the grounds it was too cheap and did not send the right message.

    They used a Baby Grand, and we on the cleanup crew had to tell the world he died of AIDScancer.

    We had to return the rental piano the next Monday- It was painful and traumatising to clean the manflesh out of the hammers…

    By smoking I don’t mean tobacco. I mean a smoker.
    So everything must be smoked. Multiple times.

    A Labor senator has come under fire after she labelled Australia Day a celebration of “white supremacy”.

    Sue Lines, a senator for Western Australia who is also the deputy president of the senate, wrote on her Facebook page that it was time to change the date of Australia Day.

    “Australia Day celebrates white supremacy and the legacy of colonisation that is directly linked to the various ways we continue to fail First Nations people,” she wrote.

    “It’s wrapped up in modern racist policies like the cashless debit card, with deaths in custody and our failure to close the gap.

Unless I get wiped out by a colonoscopy in early February, like next week. My nephew died of pancreatic cancer in 2018. Very sad for my sister. He had the Whipple operation and it did give him six extra months.

    I’ve come to the conclusion that calling violations of human rights and suppression of freedom of speech as Orwellian is actually sanitising it.

    Speaking of Orwell.

    In 1938 the government began issuing gas marks to the entire population and most people had one when war began on 3 September 1939. The government requested that people carry their mask with them at all times in its flimsy cardboard container; there was no obligation but it was strongly recommended

    In Birmingham, the Daily Gazette noted the ‘complete indifference’ to the carrying of gas masks. Each week in the city the police retrieved hundreds that had been discarded in buses, pubs and cinemas…

    Among those in London who refused to carry a mask was George Orwell. ‘The issue of them is simply a symbol of national solidarity, the first step towards wearing a uniform,’ he wrote in his diary in June 1940. ‘As soon as war started the carrying or not carrying of a gas mask assumed social and political implications.’

    From another article:

    Philip Ziegler, the author of London at War (1995), pointed out that the authorities in London carried out a regular survey of those carrying gas-masks on Westminster Bridge during 1939: “On 6 September on Westminster Bridge 71 per cent of the men and 76 per cent of the women carried masks; by 30 October the figures were 58 and 59; by 9 November a mere 24 and 39.”

    Nota,
    The was no compulsion to carry gas masks, just as there was no compulsion to use air raid shelters. Yes, outside lights were turned off, and people had to close their curtains. The compulsions were clearly minimal.

    People need to stop using the ‘Blitz Spirit’ as some sort of justification of what’s going on now. An objective reading of what really happened in London shows the ‘Blitz Spirit’ to be just as big a myth as ‘Australian Anti-authoritarianism’. Literature abounds.

    As for calcium chloride:

    Don Juan Pond (wiki)

    Don Juan Pond is a shallow, flat-bottom, hyper-saline pond. It has the second highest total dissolved solids on record, 1.3 times greater salinity than the Dead Sea. Salinity varies over time from 200 to 474 g/L, dominated by calcium chloride. It is the only Antarctic hypersaline lake that almost never freezes.

    This salinity allows the pond to remain liquid even at temperatures as low as −50 °C (−58 °F) due to the interference of salts with the bonding of water molecules.

    I read about this critter yesterday during some wandering around the net. Remains liquid at −50 °C due to all the calcium chloride dissolved in the water! You can see why Mars fans are so interested in finding wet bits in Mars. Seems plausible.

    Alan Jones should have her prime time 6pm slot on Sky News in direct competition with the the commercial TV news services. Credlin’s continuing prime time slot just demonstrates Sky management’s ‘s commercial idiocy.

    Once upon a time it might have been a thing to distance yourself from idiots in the same space to keep your credibility, but the progressives have embraced mental disease such that even the loopiest fruit loop from the right looks like a middle aged lady librarian by comparison, and anyway, they are in the middle of the process of silencing all of us anyway.

    Some months ago Faulty made a Big Prediction of Doom for Australia Day.

    I thought it was every day lol

    Well, yes.
    Until we got Prediction Tracker 2.1.4 up and running.
    Then it got awkward.
    Making daily predictions about what might happen in two days time might work when you are grifting around the bowls club among half-pissed geriatrics.
    But once the tracking and reminding started here he just extended the horizon of the predictions, hoping it would all be forgotten over a few months.
    But the internet doesn’t forget.

    So Quentin Dempster owns property in the old Rocks, heart of Sydenee. I lived in Milton Terrace there in the 60’s when it was still a slum, rented a room and kitchen as a sub-let from a lessee of the whole terrace who had some Labor Party contacts regarding Maritime Service Board properties, later Housing Commission. Two pounds a week rent from my savings in 1963 saw me able to do matriculation studies and get a Commonwealth Scholarship to Sydenee Uni. Now properties in Milton Terrace go for $10 million. And good old Labor boys are still around, well, g’day Quent. In 1788 it was all Dawes Observatory where youthful and eager Lieutenant Dawes and a young dusky lass had an interesting relationship as they studied linguistics together. Ghosts everywhere for me these days. It happens.

    And if I see someone directing traffic on Catallaxy I can point it out.
    Which I just did.

    You made a reference to a website which tracks earthquakes, and maybe a Big One was imminent.

    Maybe …

    This guy is incredibly accurate. That forecast was mine. One minute visual of that feed was troubling. Uh oh! Look out. Add Chile to the mix.

    Catch up, LL.

    There needs to be a reckoning regarding those (not just Tasmania) who wanted to introduce the laws gagging sex abuse victims.
    Let’s be clear.
    These are shield laws, protecting peddo’s.
    Why would anyone contemplate such a law?
    This is where there needs to be a digital fingerprint for legislation so all those contributing to the framing of laws.
    And it all needs to be made over source.
