    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    Ooo thanks will watch that later as my father was in RN subs for the latter part of WWII. Served in two boats, the Taurus (P399) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Taurus_(P399) and just post war the Aurochs (P426) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Aurochs_(P426) from March 1947 to June 1948.

    Most of Tassie is still treated Eucalypt power poles for the most part. I assume TasNetworks keep using them as they are a lot cheaper than Stobies and relatively quick to replace. Even Stobies can be severely damaged in fires if they get hot enough and I hate to think how long it would take to replace one of those things.

    How the hell would you know? It's not as if they would be running round with big signs declaring their beliefs whilst trying to contain the fires. Unless you personally know all the firies involved you have no basis at all for that comment.

    Post Your Latest Real Life Purchase!

    Can unlink it in accounts under settings. However still can't sell it as the key will then be tied to the hardware it was initially installed on.

    The lead graphic is rather misleading, Droneseed is dropping pucks which contain around 6 seeds of various species along with fertiliser and an animal deterrent. Would be interesting to know the propagation/survival rate using this method, but it has promise for reforesting large areas and difficult terrain. Still reforestation is only part of the solution. By itself not nearly enough to combat climate change.

    And mine. Out to about 20 years after Chemo and Radiotherapy for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. I was stage III and the doc reckoned I had only a few months left without treatment. I was down to under 60Kg (1.83 metres tall) and losing several kilos a week at the time. So obviously they didn't kill me to get me in to remission.

    So that must mean Jews are likely to be terrorists.

    Channelling Abbott & Costello are we? One of the best comedy sketches ever.

    An odd TV show called The Unicorn (not the film of the same name). Trailer Not normally my cup of tea but piqued my interest.

    In reality cattle are not even vegetarian, more sort of incidental omnivores as they eat all sorts of insects and things with their grass. They will also happily chew on any bones they find lying about even cow bones.

    About what you would expect from that total oxygen thief. Not one iota of compassion or empathy in that man.

    That's what I was thinking but they did justify the changes in this epp as far as why not just refurb the donor vehicle and scrap the old box truck.

    Need to watch some videos from Holland then, they seem obsessed with roundabouts and speed humps.

    There can be that, but if you want real jostling and overtaking you can't beat the Moto 3 races. A whole bunch of no fear teenagers slipstreaming and cutting each other up and even banging fairings and elbows. Seriously competitive racing. Often not decided between 1/2 dozen riders till the last corner and last slipstream to the finish line.

    No worries going to watch it anyway. Would have watched it live but I generally have a cousin and some friends over Mon night to watch it as they can't get FTA commercial telly. Just got advised they are piking tonight, cousin is in the USA for the birth of his second grandkid and friend has done his sciatic nerve so not feeling up to driving which I agree with, sciatica is bloody painful and debilitating.

    Ye was a nasty high side but at least he didn't tumble down the road. The bike on the other hand is, as you said, destroyed. Marquez was actually lucky not to get hit by it. Must be really really depressing for his opponents.

    Took me long enough but it finally twigged you must be a David Bowie fan. God I'm slow.
