Not as obsessed as you seem to be with me, and my shorts. ;-)
How're your fingers by the way?
Anyone got a DSM handy so we can see if there is a condition into which Nick's perpetual need to be contrary to whatever an article says might fit? - David
David, I think you may be a little obsessed with Tony Abbott. This story is Obama. And yes, the joke is on you (you can't tell right now, but I'm laughing at you). - Nick
This was funny???
It was stilted and forced. Perhaps it needed a laugh track. - April
There is an inside joke here in W.A about how to pronounce the word "Western Australia". A fluent speaker here would know Sir Charles Court,Premier of W.A known for his expansive vision in relation to mining, and later his son, Richard, who also became Premier of WA. His main infamy was challenging the High Court's decision in Mabo's impact here. I digress.
For pronunciation in the Court style~ which some of us locals never do~ it's WESTern Australians(emphasis on the first syllable). This descriptor can get very repetitious here, probably because we are not over there, but when over there come over here, they need to keep reminding us all here, that they are here. A hint for future campaigns~ we know this already. - ro.watson
Dianne, You were right on the money - that quote was from a long-winded speech Turnbull gave at the launch of 'The Saturday paper', which would have gone down well with the guests.
I found his comments at the end interesting -
"......... I mean there is actually nothing more reckless than being a politician launching a newspaper that you have not seen. You worry the headline will be something like: “Turnbull must go”, or “Abbott in disgrace”, I mean you seem to be writing about Manus Island but it seems to be Kevin Rudd who is getting the worst serve. And Kevin, as you know, has a very thick skin…
Well that's the end of that little problem for Malc and the Coalition - death, 70 injured, throats cut etc.; no need for an inquiry when they already know it was Rudd's fault - he wont mind taking the blame.
The sooner Labor start using Andrew Leigh the better. He should have been made shadow treasurer instead of Chris Bowen. as he is more than qualified to challenge Hockey on the myth/lie, created and propagated by the Coalition and Murdoch, that the Australian economy is in the mire as a result of what they call "Labor's economic and fiscal mismanagement". - JoanneH
I gave up on commercial radio years ago - it's not just the banality and "lowest common denominator" drivel spoken by the presenters, it's also the awful advertising and inappropriate content (adds targeted at curing erectile disfunction?).
I have three simple music options when I am at home or in the car - JJJ ; and when they play stuff that a woman of a certain age such as myself doesn't like I switch to 702 Sydney for intelligent and witty banter and talkback etc. When I tire of the talk I put on m a CD or my iPod. Easy.
It amazes me that people like Kyle and Jackie can command so much money and have so many followers as i don't know ANYONE who listens to them at all, lol - dramaqueen75
ABC Radio National, I want nonsexist, non hate filled bile in the mornings, just intelligent, quiet, polite interesting radio. But I have to admit I don't do mornings, I think getting up before 11 am is dangerous to the brain, mind you I go to bed around 2 am. No radio presenter is worth the obscene amount of pay Kyle gets and the stations should be ashamed for letting this horrible person continue. Jones should have been gaoled for his incitement to kill Julia Gillard. - sue bell
Anger, like most other human emotions, is experienced on a continuum, from over in a flash to the long slow burn of anger turned inward, as in depression? - ro.watson
Measuring sexual responsiveness through a tool on or up the genitals only demonstrates curiosity by the investigators? - ro.watson
I'd have thought that soccer was as dangerous as any other football game. It exposes the head to just as many if not more impacts. They hit the ball squarely with the forehead if prepared but what if they're not. Can't be good for their necks either. Also two players going for the same ball can bang their heads together. I've often wondered if slight concussion is even reported half the time. Soccer is a tough game. I think a lot of people have the wrong idea about it. My boys played high school rugby and were never hurt but that might have been luck. - RhodaD
