    Oh, and just for the record: an Australian Aboriginal who is a citizen is just as free as any other Australian to purchase land or buildings. The law permits rich and poor alike to purchase media outlets, donate to political...

    I thought that Australian Aboriginals did not believe in the right to own land, as distinct from property? Traditional land ownership was far more complicated than European Law can cope with. Plus whitey weren't very interested in finding out, it...

    Yeah, whatever the head in hands emojii is. Or 🖕 🙅‍♀️ 🤷‍♂️ I've kinda pulled back from refugee work because I find it pretty traumatising, and my personal focus has been climate change for a while now*. And I'm no...

    (fwiw I don't count dismissing Whitlam in Australia as war, it was merely the sort of foreign interference that all empires practice. I mean actual bombing shooting war - like the freeing of Vietnam and Cambodia, or the liberation of...

    I suspect there are quite a few governments round the world ardently defended by their people on the basis that it's better than having a government installed by the US. Or destroyed by them, since they're much better at that...

    I don't believe the "oops" part, there's been no attempt to conceal agendas on either side. It's like firing a gun... you can't just pick up a loaded gun and randomly pull the trigger then say "oops" if you kill...

    Ooops, sorry, I was mislead by reports like this (quote below) and this. Who knew the media lies? Alabama has prosecuted at least 40 cases brought under the state’s “chemical endangerment” law, which was introduced in 2006. The law, purportedly...

    Bill, on that note, here's Rolling Stone on the current war against Venezuela... Every article is seen from one angle: Venezuelans under the heel of a dictator who caused the crisis, with the only hope a “humanitarian” intervention by the...

    propaganda/training to dehumanize enemies as a means of increasing acceptance of atrocities We have that all the time, and it's very hard to fight against. Notorious events like people speaking a local language being told "speak english, we speak Australia...

    (Bill quotes an article) The logic of Alabama’s abortion law should permit you to claim a fetus on your taxes and collect insurance if you miscarry. Aren't there states that prosecute (some) women who have miscarriages for crimes against the...

    Blessed are the peacemakers, cursed are the warmongers. No exceptions. Aren't you in the USA? Doesn't that make it hard, living in a cursed land full of cursed people? IIRC the USA has been "not engaged in war" for about...

    I assumed it was a reference to a Half Man Half Biscuit song, but it turned out I remembered the lyrics wrong....

    Basically somewhat to the right of the contemporary US Republican Party To me that puts them firmly in Mein Kampf. The US Republicans are at the same time incredibly warlike and proponents of the gentle genocide. Sure, they use...

    venues with nothing to eat, period—her gut is dairy-intolerant and she has an egg allergy on top I've had that for much of my life. A lot of places I'll eat hot chips or nothing, because the default response of...

    Welders use argon a lot. It's denser than CO2 and will happily exclude the oxygen from any enclosed space. People die that way on a regular basis. I use it as a preservative because it kills pests quite effectively (plastic...

    Just in case anyone is interested in guilt by association... global warming denial is now embraced by German neo-Nazis and taken further. Perhaps they're secretly doing the old Microsoft "embrace extend and exterminate" technique? Also, I am sick of "climate...

    By scale I meant we've all seen the photos of before and after, it's the actual fire that's hard to grasp. I've been a couple of kilometres away from an unexpected excursion and I mean far enough that I could...

    Dude, are you spending too much time watching Australian politics at the moment? For those fortunate enough to be out of spewing range, the COALition is really going for it on that front, with special guest appearance by Clive "pay...

    One of the things that's very noticeable actually living in a Muslim or heavily Muslim community is that The Prophet was actually a competent civil administrator and much of his work was in trying to persuade a bunch of barbarians...

    In news that will no doubt shock the strict fundamentalists like Greg, they acknowledge that the prophet did not give direct guidance so they do what they can, when they can (which is itself according to the instructions of the...

    Which also reminds me of another bit of wonderful bullshit: Messianic Jews aren't eligible for the Israeli 'right of return' available to all Jews because their version of Judaism is not the right sort, despite being officially acknowledged as being...

    not just that there are a lot of non Arab Muslims (well obvoiusly) I think the point was that it's not "well obviously" to some people. I'm more inclined than most to categorise things, so I seem to notice/remember...

    I suspect that's less so outside of the US/Americas because the rest of the world has better access to more diverse Muslim populations. Europe is threatened by Caucasian Muslims, for example, and Australia has the teeming hordes of Indonesia immediately...

    Gold! I do think we should ban al-gebra from our schools. There's way too much of that dodgy stuff going on the in the classroom. They should teach nice, pure, European calculus. Belle has an interesting post up about daydreaming/worldbuilding...

    I wouldn't say "composting toilet" and "onsite treatment" were at all the same thing! It's all about how you look at it. The "treatment plant" is very specific and what it does is hot compost biosolids. There's a filtering system...

    What this means in practice is that duration of the fire is incredibly important Bushfires, at least here, tend to be short term. There's just not enough fuel to maintain the high temperatures for very long. An hour is a...

    If you want to get something a lot more realistic I'm amused because I thought their descriptions were unrealistic in the opposite direction. 100kph is not an especially fast bushfire, 1500m is not far to throw embers, 2100F is not...

    Most of the world lives in cities, a trend that is not likely to reverse. I think that's optimistic, except in the sense that most city dwellers will not move to the country they will die in place. I largely...
