I just can't get over a (presumably non-Indigenous) company calling an Aboriginal man's failure to properly execute a Welcome to Country "offensive". We think the AFL is over-the-top with its image management sometimes, but Rugby takes it to a whole different level of blue-nosery. Which is kind of funny, given it's a game played and watched by meatheads!

Whoa there.

An Acknowledgement of Country is very different to a "Welcome to Country"/ The article said he was giving the former.

A Welcome to Country has to be delivered by an Indigenous person of the language group linked to the land you're currently on. It's the equivalent of a home owner inviting you into their home and offering to share their stuff with you.

An Acknowledgement of Country can be delivered by anyone, Indigenous or not, and is the equivilent of saying "Hey, love your house, thank you for letting me in"

The Acknowledgement is about recognising the traditional owners of the land and that you're in their house.

Do NOT use the terms interchangeably, you'll seriously piss someone off.

The article said he was delivering the acknowledgement of country and I don't care how badly he mangled it, anyone could could seriously take offence at an Indigenous person accidentally blundering it needs urgent surgery to remove their head from their own arse.

Another reason not to buy drugs at a music festival Confused Shocked

Quote:
A MAN’s efforts to smuggle drugs into a music festival by hiding ecstasy tablets under his foreskin were foiled by police sniffer dogs.


I'm assuming he was planning sell them, not take them himself? Shocked

I wondered what the pill testing they did at music festivals actually looked for. I now know, it's smegma.

Austria, Australia, what's the difference?

https://www.watoday.com.au/world/africa/australian-killed-by-elephant-was-in-fact-austrian-namibian-ministry-clarifies-20191109-p538z4.html

Quote:
The Namibian Ministry of Environment and Tourism said on Friday that a 59-year-old Australian man had died while camping at the Huab River in the Kunene region.

A spokesman from Australia's Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade told The Age on Friday the department was seeking to confirm the report.

But according to an update overnight, the man killed on Thursday (local time) was actually an Austrian national.

It took me well into my 40's before my brain was writing cheques my body couldn't cash. I take some perverse pleasure from the fact that it's happening to my son in his late 20s.

There was something nice about passing out pain free and waking up next morning wondering why you weren't in an ED
