  1. The teacher was telling the kids at a Banora Point school about the birds and bees and explained that when a man and a woman meet and fall in love, nine months later the stork usually brings them a little baby from its nest. Little Gemma at the back of the class put her hand up and says to the teacher " Are you sure about the stork miss, cause I think you’re getting your birds mixed up, cause my sister just had a baby and she said it was from a shag on the beach at Coolangatta ".

  2. This happened yesterday and is important information for our age group. Tony Axelsen had his 2nd dose of the vaccine at the vaccination center after which he began to notice blurred vision on the way home. When Tony got home, he called the vaccination center for advice and to ask if he should go see a doctor, or be hospitalized. He was told NOT to go to a doctor or a hospital, but just return to the vaccination center immediately and pick up his glasses.

  3. At my wedding (this century), I provided grog. Making a snap judgement of the guests I bought in beers for the blokes, white wine for the women, and cheap bubbly for the toasts. I hoped there wouldn't be many of those, they're usually boring. Oh, and I bought half a dozen nice reds as a treat for myself. Imaging my shock when the barperson (21st century, gotta be PC) warned me that MY red was almost all devoured and nobody was drinking the beer! I raced down to the nearest grog shop and bought a case of their cheapest red wine for the wedding guests. Asked "What, don't you like

  4. I was invited to a workmate's place to help him with a bike. We had coffee in the kitchen, his wife was out, then worked in the shed for a couple of hours. He asked me to fetch a couple of beers from the kitchen and I was at the fridge when his wife walked in from their bedroom wearing panties and nothing else. She screamed and shouted at me and I shot out the door back to the shed. I had never met her before and was never invited to meet her again.

  6. I can't see my underlying moral compass relying on any religious mantra. My basic moral system revolves around questioning my actions: - "would I like that done to me?" - "is anyone negatively affected by my actions"? Basically I try very hard to avoid hurting others by whatever I do. Basically, Be nice and play fair. I guess some of the ten commandments try to tell people to be nice and play fair but it's been the only way to live well amongst the tribe, since way before god made up her mind to favor her 'chosen ones.'

  9. Support a strong independent media. Counter lies with fact. Do your best to work out who the best candidates are and vote for them. Raise your children to have an interest in and participate in democracy. Progress is made slowly. But I don't think the current lot are any worse than years gone by - yes we can argue that we don't have great orators like Whitlam or wit like Keating, but what about Julia's "misogyny" speech? The title of this thread refers to the toxic culture of Parliament house, especially the treatment of women. But was it any better in previous days? I

  11. The simple problem is the water catchment area concentrates all the runoff into smaller areas - the creeks, then the rivers. You can get absolutely monstrous volumes of water from just one big thunderstorm. I built a 26km haul road for the Gascoyne Trading Company (a local trucking company) in 1986, between Kanowna and the Paddington Mill, North of Kalgoorlie townsite. A company had found a large open-cut gold deposit at the old Kanowna Gold Field and had arranged to have it toll-treated at the Paddington Mill. There was a substantial volume of ore to be hauled, it was g

  12. I didn't write this stuff. I'm only quoting it. You are ALL sinners and going to hell unless you have faith in the Risen Christ. and by that you will be saved. This implies the original concepts must have failed obviously. and plan "B" is now the go..When the "Gospel" (good news) is spread to the far corners of the earth we will be in the last days. Some think that TIME is NOW. Personally I think making US in the image of god is an ultimate conceit, on our part and I can't see why god would have all the faults of design WE have IF HE was that smart.. More likely we invented him in OUR

  13. I don't think that there is a connection between what people think about sending military forces into other countries for belligerent purposes, and the level of interpersonal violence within our communities. I would say that the swing against involvement in overseas conflicts is a result of our learning that we can't solve what are really internal civil wars. Vietnam was a failure. Why should our involvement in conflicts that have been bubbling along for centuries do any good? Another thing is to look at the respondents of the 1965 and 2015 surveys. They are 50 years

  14. You are not wrong about the deterioration of TV programming. It's so bad I turn off, either literally, or just ignoring what is going on in the background. It helps to drown out the tinnitus. These incessant moronic reality programs and game shows - Big Brother, I'm a Celebrity, get me out of here, Married at First Sight, The Batchelor/ette and that other Greg Norman piece of garbage - I can't remember the name. That and gambling ads - Sportsbet, Ladbrokes, et al. Should be banned like cigarette advertising. Incidentally, saw a picture of Peter Brock's Torana with the Marlboro logo blurred. Qu

'I'm 90 years old,' he says. '90?' replies the woman. 'Don't you realize you've had it?' 'Oh, sorry,' says the old man. 'How much do I owe you?'

  16. I dated a woman for a couple of years who was Catholic - or claimed to be. She only went to church for family occasions - when with me, it was christenings of nieces/nephews. She never observe any of the rules privately or publicly - e.g. lent, etc. Her mother was a practicsing Catholic and her sister observed the main events, but by all otward appearances, my girlfriend was almost as ahtiest as I am. When the M word was floated, we both agreed a simple cermony would be best. But that's where the agreement ended. I was thinking registry - she was thinking church. Well, it's all aca

  19. Sitting in the house listening to the incessant rain, and watching the TV news reports of rushing rivers, I begin to wonder - Why do rivers run? And after that - Why do rivers running at the flood damage the land? In the twelve hours to 9:00 am Sunday 21st March, Camden Airport weather station recorded 90 mm of rainfall. That equates to 90 litres of water per square metre of flat surface. Most of that rainwater is going to enter the Nepean/Hawkesbury system and eventually reach the sea. Camden Airport is 75 metres AMSL. With reference to MSL, the 90 litres of rain has a

  21. I have been to some amazing places. One is in Western Australia, where I took many pictures including these four. The location was secret, known only to an old aboriginal man who had last seen it as a young man and relocated it by helicopter. Picture 1 is a megalithic humanoid figure, my wife is standing behind it. It is maybe six metres tall and has two legs, hips, a torso and a head. It could be a natural formation, but seems to have been built up from blocks. Picture 2 Is a painting on the roof of a cavern. It seems to have 3 dimensional qualities. Pictur

Run by an idiot who discourages masks, discourages people getting vaccinated, doesn't do contact tracing, and is now trying to get judges to overturn social distancing requirements in states that have put them in place. Sound familiar?

Imagine what we could do if we took all the money, talent and energy we use on trying to kill and dominate each other, and used it in cooperating in a friendly and scientific manner.

  26. Here's an idea - there's a shortage of organ donors in Australia. Perhaps the federal government could have a funeral contribution scheme whereby if you donate your organs you have your funeral partially funded (maybe, as Octave pointed out, half the cremation fee or $750).

  27. Marty_d said that too. I doubt if you could find a civil engineering company that could complete that contract successfully. However, it would be well worth suspending these politicians for a year and make them try to live in the real world for that long. Let them try to get a job using only their proven abilities to do the job, and not being given a hand up by their cronies in Big Business. Let them learn what it is like to deal with the daily struggles the rest of us do. Make them pay for licences, their car registration, power and water, mortgage/rent. Make them do what the dece

  29. Octave, whilst you are making good points, I feel that you are missing the big points that I made about domestic violence. 1. My personal experience. I have been on the receiving end of domestic violence twice, years apart, by intelligent, nice females. I have refined my selection criteria now. Presently happily married 15 years without a disagreement. I have also been mugged - beaten unconscious and robbed on my way home from work. After my second DV event, In a workplace of about 40 people that knew of my assault by a woman, many openly ridiculed me but 5 co

  30. The simple reasons that 90% of the voters in W.A. voted for Mark McGowan are likely to be; 1. McGowan has proven himself as an able, trustworthy and competent Premier. His military (RAN) and Navy legal training show up constantly. He moved fast and very effectively to lock down the State, when the COVID-19 virus first appeared. This caused quite a few grumbles, but the vast majority understood he was doing the right thing, as regards protecting the health of the people of the State. I know he felt very keenly about the economic losses caused by his actions. 2. Peop

  32. Corinthians also says "The women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church." and "But every wife who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, since it is the same as if her head were shaven" Personally I would not be looking to the bible for relationship advice.
