    They are guided by the police. It was not until the next day that the police said it was a murder suicide. Before that they said they were still investigating.

    The UK and Climate Change

    If you own a car, you are not helping the environment if you sell your car and buy a Tesla. The energy required to create the new Tesla as well as batteries etc means it is just virtue signalling and achieves nothing. Batteries last a few years also and then lose their effectiveness and need dumping in landfill and replacing. The far better thing for the environment is to keep your current car and drive it responsibly. If you keep your car for a long time, over 10 years then that is the best thing for the environment. We don't need a new car every 3 or 4 years.

    I think she means men.

    Broke my heart

    Just read $200000 has been raised for him via a gofundme so he can go to Disneyland. That should cheer him and his mum up. https://www.theage.com.au/national/queensland/fundraiser-soars-past-200-000-for-bullying-victim-quaden-bayles-20200221-p5438k.html

    I'm the same. Actually hot chips from fish and chip shop is the only thing I add salt to. These potato twirly things are just like chips really so probably need a bit of salt. People always go overboard though in the shop when they are putting it on.

    How is Megan doing so far?

    Objectively there is no reason to refuse them a visa anyway. They will be paying millions a year in tax so a win for the country they live in.
  7. She is very annoying but she was the one who organised about $50M in donations so I will forgive her annoying hosting techniques.

    It was very hard to watch. But I kept wanting to yell at the mother. Stop filming your child in distress and hold him.

    You should be able to say no salt. Otherwise I think they roll it around in chicken salt or similar before they give it to you.

    I've had them at the Night Noodle Market at Birrarung Mar. They are nice but very salty.

    10 cent for an elastic band

    To give them the benefit of the doubt. Some of these charges are to discourage use and waste. Plastic drinking straws are a big problem. They are single use and end up in landfill or the ocean. If we can discourage use of these things by charging for them it makes people think twice and probably do without them.

    British say learn't more than learned but both are valid and correct English. Sic is not required and doesn't prove you to be any smarter than anyone else.

    Australia and Climate Change

    Heard them saying on the radio that for Victoria at least our temperatures in January and February 2020 have been below average for these months and our rainfall has been above average for these months. So a pretty mild summer really, although we have had a couple of hot days as you would expect at this time of year. But quite a few cool wet weeks too.
  14. Not much global warming there.

    Never have I....

    Yes of course. And I did partake of marijuana in my university days but that was over 30 years ago.
