Over the past few months there have been flocks of corellas in the area. Mainly been along Gardiners Creek where they have been stripping trees of foliage.

This morning they decided that the large plane trees in our neighbours front yard were their next target. Was like a scene from The Birds. You could hear them chomping through branches and leaves, making a huge mess which they will have to clean up.

Quote:
An Aboriginal man who died in Victoria's largest jail last month gained 140 kilograms over his three years in the prison system, a coronial court has been told.


What were they feeding him? Lead sandwiches? Shocked

And it's not like he was a big bloke to start with.

Quote:
he gained 140 kilograms in weight from the time he went into custody until the time of his death," she said.

She said he died weighing 200 kilograms,


So a bloke in his late 30's, weighing 60kg goes into prison and in 3 years on a prison diet, weighs 200kg Shocked How the flying fk can that happen?

That’s actually pretty fascinating – I had no idea where the song originated – but I think it goes without saying that a tune can’t actually be racist. Consider it an act of positive appropriation!

That's just ridiculous. The guy gets a dubious win with his racist cheese argument so he decides to go after a tune.

Utterly no doubt that the original lyrics of the song were horribly wrong, so much so that they were re-written in the enlightened 1940'a, but a tune can't be racist.

A Tune could trigger feelings by association but that's about it.

What I did find fascinating was the concept of a "C00n song" which I'd never heard of before. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coon_song

Interestingly there was a number of positive benefits derived from that.

Shocked

It’s always the problem with these professional activists, they get a win and move onto the next issue.

Same with the professional protestors, once they got SSM they can focus all their attention on Australia Day and if Anal gets in, they’ll move to the next issue, probably a republic.
