Fark... they just more than doubled Pistorius' sentence from 6 to 13 years (appeal lodged by the state).

 

Yeah, they can jam their subs though I'd not mind something like a brief scenic underwater type though keep the fucken tourists away as well.

On the other hand they can also jam their airborne buzzboxes like the Fokker Fellowship and the like.

Yeah I was a bit stunned by his original sentence, even this seems light for murder.

 

We do, or did, have a scenic submarine over here that ran to Rotnest -took my kids on it once one of them is like me, fear of confined spaces, they were basically running at surface depth anyway so just took here up on deck for fresh air, it was stifling in there as well.

 

I think you are probably thinking on the F-27 Friendship, turboprop and yes a bit noisy. The F-28 is the Fellowship, rear engine twin jet, flew one a few years ago, pretty quiet I thought, but I was up front :)

more likely imploded at depth

 

but either way, i'm with chris... the whole idea of being in one of those things is unappealing

Hmm,

 

Not sure the ocean is deep enough there, could be wrong.

 

I actually built the training network for the Collins here on Garden Island, it's sort of why I'm in W.A., one time they took me inside a new build, on land, two minutes and this claustrophobic wanted out. 

 

My friends sometimes get confused because I'll happily strap into a jet which I suppose could be thought of as claustrophobic but I can see out, I'm sitting on an escape seat and I'm typically alone.

 

I  think the last is what matters the most - don't like sharing confined spaces with other people :)

 

Cheers

Missing Argentine sub ... exploded. Apparently lack of maintenance!

They don't really know, the weather there is awful at the moment and sonar can be difficult to interpret in such conditions.

 

Half the world including the American deep sea rescue folks are looking for that sub it seems but with the passing of time I regret to say it is probably on the bottom with everybody lost.

 

Submarines, never have liked the things...

Thank-you so much Mr Howard for being the creator of the downfall of our political system :)

huh ? He's the fuckhead who blithely changed the law regarding the wording of a legal marriage, I don't think he's quite old enough to have helped with the S 44 of the constitution .

 Probably not although bushy brows is decidedly ancient but he messed with a pretty simple law and now we are seeing the consequences.

 

I find the entire "dual citizenship" rubbish to be just that, but it is messing with our politics in a manner that is very distracting, which I find suspicious in the first place being I trust most politicians about as much as I do street corner hookers...
