  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    Possum/merino socks -- best things in the world! Our road would be a great place to test AIs for cars -- three species of little hoppy things, one species of bigger hoppy thing, possums, Tassie Devils, an echidna, bilbies, quolls,...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    And this is why you do not try and drive at high speed past a wedge tailed eagle on the side of the road. They will most likely take off, very slowly, just as you get close to them and...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    I'll see your wekas and raise you with what we call "little hoppy things" -- wallabies and such like. Totally random behaviour when they are confronted by a car approaching. They may: hop along the fenceline next to the road...
  • Commented on Decision Fatigue
    Neither of which started broadcasting until 1300 each day, from memory. I remember being disappointed when, returning from visits to family in Australia in the '60s and '70s, I would no longer be able to watch Kimba the White Lion...
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    "Too much thought required..." Is true. In far too many cases....
  • Commented on Strong and Stable!
    I'd just go for what I said to some American friends who were horrified when I mentioned beef vindaloo -- not all Indians are Hindu, you know, and not all Hindus are practicing Hindus....
  • Commented on I can't even
    Speaking of which I saw a headline today and TBH I don't even know where to start: "Report: Trump Considers Marjorie Taylor Greene a “Great” Pick to Lead DOJ". I.. just... can't.........
  • Commented on I can't even
    Hope for an endorsement process such as the one they used to use for people who took their test in an automatic? You would be able to get your licence but it would only be valid for driving cars without...
  • Commented on I can't even
    Hand up I do. There's a street near the big local market which is very steep but usually has parking on market days because you actually have to walk a bit to get there. While I admit my car is...
  • Commented on I can't even
    I don't buy eggs as I have chickens -- but the food I buy them recently went up 25% in one hit....
  • Commented on I can't even
    Petrol prices in the US are just astounding -- I drive a (sort of) ordinary 12 year old sedan and it has cost me more than $100 to fill up for some time now, albeit with premium petrol. I remember...
  • Commented on I can't even
    Oh wow, blast from the past -- "Damn the dam", a protest song written about the Lake Manpouri project, jumped straight into my head: Damn the dam cried the fantail as he flew into, as he flew into the sky...
  • Commented on I can't even
    I'm not the right person to answer that -- while I grew up in NZ I came back to Australia in the early '80s and a lot of the strengthening of the Treaty seem to have happened since then. Hell...
  • Commented on I can't even
    See Moz's comment @70 - I don't think it's official policy...
  • Commented on I can't even
    And this is why I prefer cats to people... I'm beginning to think "people" have just given up. Sure there are people who are trying to improve the world but they're facing so much opposition and so much disinformation and...
  • Commented on I can't even
    Well there's an idea -- let's piss off the, from memory, the only native people to ever force the British to a treaty. What could possibly go wrong... Do they not understand WHY there was a treaty??...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    lol As the human who would have to rescue the goat while not breaking anything important I think I'll give it a miss really...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Looks interesting, thanks....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Our biggest problem is bracken, so not so much of a chainsaw job -- which would be easy enough when the ground is dry. We have a lot of mudrock though so as soon as it gets wet we end...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Sadly my property is a bit too steep all over to picket goats -- the only flat part, apart from the part around the house, is at the bottom of a hill where we can't keep an eye on them....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    Not me -- I live on 13 acres and my cats are old....
  • Commented on London Bridge
    "Goats are slightly more ownable than cats" I don't know about that, but it's mostly an infrastructure issue. I have cats and would have goats -- but you need good fencing for goats. They be smart critters...
  • Commented on London Bridge
    There's an automatic cow milker at Pyengana in Tassie, no human involved: "He said that some cows would come to the robots five times a day. "They get four kilos of grain just for turning up to milk (and then)...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Sorry, I don't have an answer for that. I'm not English and was born in the '60s so have only ever known Elizabeth as Queen and Charles as Prince of Wales. My understanding extends as far as what I said...
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    I believe that the Duchy of Cornwall traditionally goes to the Prince of Wales, so he won't own Cornwall for much longer now that he's King. Could be wrong though....
  • Commented on Necroqueen!
    Is Rookwood still the only cemetery in the world with its own post code I wonder? It certainly is a lovely place to visit....
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    "...they're going to make a MAN queen..." To which my response was:"But they're all men in Queen, I don't understand."...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    "In theory that's the case with British based legal systems, "ignorance of the law is no excuse" and all that." That's sort of the problem, we are assumed to know the laws and their consequences and we really really don't,...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    In our case it comes from dealing with a culture that has Law -- everyone knows the Law and everyone knows the consequences. Everyone suffers the consequences, no matter what -- because they all the Law. An alien concept I...
  • Commented on The gathering crisis
    Ahh, the interactions between colonisers and colonised. I can highly recommend The Dystopia in the Desert, which is about the result of 200+ years of white fellas in Australia and their dealings with the oldest culture on the planet. Consider...
