Yes Dianne I agree and am amused by your comments ! I would also add that nice boy from Jacobs Creek , and Mr Wolf Blass , that naughty Johnny Walker , remember the Blue Nun ( erk ! ) and how about those nuts from Nobby ? But seriously it looks like my nearby town Mansfield Vic has had the fortitude to deny maccas entry hooray ! - Zuzi
Van - I am also the possessor of upstanding, large bosooms that arrive in a room before the rest of me. Thrusting would be the word I use now and laugh about.
Adult males focussed attention on them from 12-13 onwards was scary especially considering I was still playing with kids toys at home. It was like a 13 year old owning a Ferarri - but not knowing how to drive it! I cringed at the stares, and learned to take precautions with the outright stalkers [plural] in a time when it was not a crime for adult men to follow schoolgirls or pester us sexually.
The most brazen were those calling themselves photographers. They would bowl up to my sister and I parents, introduce themselves, flatter our naive parents and then ask permission for us to pose for them. This was the era when Roman Polanski was convincing parents to hand over their young daughters using similar techniques.
My personality and sassiness eventually caught up with the bra cup size. I enjoyed putting my index finger under the chin of the breast obsessed and tilting his eyes to look at mine and saying "they're spectacular I know but they don't talk yet." Or Similar.
I still recall the last cartoon like double take they caused - a decade ago - two male Japanese tourists exiting from a hotel in Cairns grabbing at each other like excited schoolboys, eyes popping and trying to take photos of each other near my boobs. The last time I saw them minus breast cancer surgical scar [four years ago] and which was also when they commenced losing their gravity defying pertness to size ratio. I find scars attractive and interesting so that creates its own aesthetic twist.
It took a bit of living and some dings, but I feel I finally grew into mine. - Coco
Dear Adam, how privileged are we to hear your words. Thank you. Its a fine line we all walk and being compassionate to others shouldn't be so rare I think. Your openness in sharing this part of your life is appreciated and valued, and I hope helpful to you personally. I know I'm slightly biased, but I love the new shows, especially Studio10! All beginnings are tough but Im sure the world of media is especially challenging when you add the pressure of your list of achievements. As you can see, there are many people in your corner, I hope that helps :) - Angela Eagle Waves
Adam, I'll be honest and say that I had never heard of you before reading your story, but please don't take offense. I'm now, however, very grateful to know who you are as a real person, and not just as someone who works in the media, or who enforces the stigma of mental illness.
Since I was diagnosed with anxiety/depression and PTSD late last year, after living with the undiagnosed symptoms since the mid 80's, I actually look forward to meeting more people with a mental illness; to support them, and to remind them they're not alone, because I know I'm also not alone with them around. I openly talk about my mental illness with others, to help raise awareness, and I commend you immensely for speaking out about your bipolar.
I'm sorry to know you experienced such darkness in your bipolar episodes, but if there's one thing I've learned to embrace while living with a mental illness is that there are more positives than we believe in negative circumstances. You've made your negative experiences take a positive step in the right direction to smash the mental illness stigma, and raise even more awareness! Remember, you're never alone.
Wishing you many years of light and success in your health and career. - Freddy Gulino
A friend of mine is one of the ship's engineers who supports the whole operation. He and his family haven't just volunteered their time to assist in this wonderful cause, they actually pay for the privilege. I'm very proud of them. - Andrew Rourke
Thank you for your courage. You took a step on behalf of those who can't. Now they can use your example as conversation starters with others who don't understand because they haven't had this touch their lives. - Rosemary Narhi
Hey Adam, glad you're still here and know that things will only get better. As someone who also suffers, it inspires me that you don't give up on aspirations.
Take care everybody! - Gary

For surveillance of keeping poachers out of parks to save animals maybe drones are great but for taking over people's jobs - not so good. If all this new technology keeps taking jobs away from people then how will people be able to afford to live; buy the latest technology, food, pay their mortgages/rent etc. This also puts a hamper on the Australian Government wanting people to work until 70 or whatever ... there won't be any work for people to do - the drones and other new tech machines will be taking the positions. A bit of a cutting off your nose to spite your face scenario here! - Chris
