    I may have told this one before but one of the great moments in the 70s was when some psychic predicted a massive tidal wave and the Premier of the State went down to the main pier of the State Capital on the actual day in question along with thousands of people.

    Needless to say the watery Armageddon failed to materialise and a whole bunch of…[Read more]

    “there is no policy or strategy you can implement to target 3.7 billion people”

    Yes there is. You can educate boys to be respectful of women. I did it and it’s not hard.

    • >You can educate boys to be respectful of women.

      You sound enlightened. Not like the rest of us that are taught to disrespect women … especially in context of the article which dealt with the abduction and murder of a woman.

      But OK, I’ll bite, how do you craft a global policy to “educate boys to be respectful of women”?

    Middle of para 3″ that”=”and” would make sense
    But as a dramatic moment it works well

    By the way do you know I have been following for 10 years now?
    I still regard you as an excellent journalist and a touchstone of good sense with a finger on the pulse of important news.

    Thank you for everything, Rebecca.

    Yeah wow. I could tell the exact point in the story where you really started to get angry and passionate about this.

    If it’s any consolation the situation is very bad here as well. My old man mentioned the other day about how there were so many homeless women on the streets and I pointed out that undoubtedly they were all victims of domestic…[Read more]

    Also, don’t fucking rock up to a 15 minute appointment with a shopping list of problems, schedule a longer session or see your doctor more frequently.

    It’s a great title Rebecca, the title says it all and suggests the solution.

    I generalise here.

    People have been brainwashed into regarding price as the most important criterion. Price is easy to quantify, quality is not.

    When you* are young and invulnerable or Republican and arrogant, thinking ill health is some sort of moral deficiency,…[Read more]

    “he also defended the neo-Nazi Milo Yiannopolous, arguing that he couldn’t possibly be a neo-Nazi because he’s gay and “half-Jewish.”

    LMFAO the first thing Hitler did when he marched into Austria was to search and destroy the records of his Jewish ancestry.

    Also Hitler’s rival for leadership until 1936 Ernst Roehm was known as “the Breec…[Read more]

    • It’s a possibility, but strikes me as idle speculation about Hitler. Basically, Hitler’s grandmother, Maria Schicklgruber, was a maid for a Jewish household, and the argument is that possibly she had an affair with one of the men of the household, and that man was the father of Hitler’s father, Alois Hitler, né Schicklgruber. Doesn’t sound like…[Read more]

    You are write, of course you are “write”…

    Ain’t auto correct a bitch!

    Don’t anybody ever lecture me on the glorious wonders of AI.

    Also – fukken Sprague-Dawley rats again!
    No good ever comes from experiments with those motherfuckers.

    And yes, only IONISING radiation can cause cancer, microwaves do not count (think of all the juicy…[Read more]

    In fact, you do not need to tie your post in with that reference at all, it’s strong enough and true enough to stand on its own. It’s the same stuff we were taught about population screening 50 years ago. There are actually WHO guidelines on such to avoid wasting scarce resources,

    Speaking of insurance companies, they are a new and frightening…[Read more]

    “After Jolie’s story went viral, there was an uptick in the number of women who requested genetic testing, but there wasn’t an uptick in mastectomies because the vast majority of those women didn’t have the mutation”.

    In fact if you check the original article, we do not know whether the women had the mutation or not, or whether they had a fam…[Read more]

    Coming back and looking at this after a year….

    I don’t think depression is ever really totally internal or totally external, there are some bits you can control and others you cannot.

    I can attest the best cure for your crappy job is to tell your boss to shove it and the best cure for your dog dying is a new puppy. These are some of the…[Read more]

    Has anybody checked out VR Chat?

    Talk about total immersion, people can leave the real world behind for good!

    When they get in their $3000 gear and sit around in the virtual world watching vids….but who am I to judge, the real world is ultra shitty for lots of people!

    “When I’m president, …”
    YES!

    “all unmarried conservatives will be forced into a green card marriage with a gay immigrant. That should fix things.”

    OH YEAH! Yes yes yes yes yes yes please please please please!

    Hmm maybe if NASA’s Planetary Defense Coordination Office was to frame the problem as Occupation and Weaponisation of Near Earth Objects they could get more funding?

    Needless to say this is all in breach of existing International Space treaties.

    Do you think we could convince him that the cubic kilometers of ice falling off Antarctica and Greenland are functionally equivalent to bloody big rocks?

    Just to expand on that a bit – the most significant temperature increases occur at the poles and measurement requires remote sensors and satellite data, for which mass production of cheap very large scale integrated circuits was a decade or so away.

    “Scientists in the 1970s believed that humans were causing the earth to cool”.

    Let’s see – as an undergraduate in the 70s I recall that there were indeed cooling effects and heating effects but that at that point there was insufficient data to determine which tendency dominated.

    I think that is a fair statement of the facts although I would…[Read more]

    I’m not trying to wind you up, Jon, I really like you but I’m just uncertain where you’re coming from on this one.

    Pundit class? That’s a pretty broad category – including our dear Rebecca for instance. So some subset (filthy hippies? Clinton supporters?) are being Luddites in your view?
