    how crap is this government ?

    seriously you sound like a man who thinks the world isn't trying to shake off the infestation of humans that are annoying it like the parasites we are if you think the weather isn't going to get more dynamic, you should consider entropy

    based on what predictions ? as the atmosphere heats up it becomes considerably more dynamic than previously, the previously on which they base the 1 in a millennium events - past, not future patterns i'm calling bullshit once the first category 5 "tropical" cyclone takes a left curve down the east coast and drowns brisbane, or even sydney (given our recent "east coast low" events, the insurance industry will be charging everyone crazy prices for cover

    when the first major cyclone remnant sweeps well inland off the coral sea due to atmospheric instability, i guess the levee can show its capabilities... or not and yeah, the artesian basin is not in the firing line, but the galilee basin is a self contained system that provides for local farming use, and any contamination thus will have persistent effects "locally" as for jobs.... ha! show me the money

    Ladders. They hurt

    yeah, ladders i recall a job in my youth hanging curtains at a temporary cinema (on weekends), where i would balance on the top of a 12' ladder - literally on the apex after i broke my foot in my mid-40's (slipped on the stairs in socks while porting a crt monitor - ouch ! the monitor did better than me), i now don't like jumping any height, as it was my dominant foot, and i seem to second guess and try and land on the left one, which totally wrecks any graceful attempt at return to earth thus, i really don't like ladders... even jumping from kitchen benches (changing light bulbs and stuff) is best done using a hand on the bench, where as a youth i would vault, and used to do the stairs at the hospital in 3 strides per half run get well soon, hulks

    ocau sucked me in again my first ever set of in ear monitors (a nod to the headfi thread i stole the pic from : https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/tin-hifi-t3.23570/reviews ) i am somewhat awe struck at the sound such little things can deliver, especially using my altoids tin cmoy amp from the same forum (like the ones here : http://www.lucidlaboratories.com/shop-1/cmoy-headphone-amplifier ) all those plus the pan am tube amp were impulse buys that have been worth every dollar spent, especially at the immense discount used gear gives
