The muthafucking Shadow knows. http://t.co/Cu43PxHo6V
As an amendment to the recent discussion on FriendFeed about USB plugs etc, I just troubleshooted a USB harddrive issue for a person in the office next door. "I plug it in both ways and nothing". Walked over to their office, looked the the laptop. They had plugged the USB cord into the LAN port.
Just last month I stuffed a Firewire 800 plug into an ethernet port and was wondering why things weren't working. I was working by feel on the back of something and thought for sure I had it in the right hole. - Brian Johns

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't the ICAC investigation that's got all the LNP members suppose to be about Labor's Obeid? #AusPol #Akward
$18b savings on the LNP's Fraudband is like buying a ute instead of a Mack. It's cheaper NOW until you realise you'll need the Mack #AusPol

58% of the state of California is in drought. Here in Queensland it's 80%... but whatever reason you need. #eyeroll
Hmm. This looks like 100% of California to me. http://droughtmonitor.unl.edu/Home... - Victor Ganata
How much of your nation's food do they grow in Queensland? - April Russo
When did droughts become a competition? - kendrak
I think this might explain why it's so upsetting to most people in the US: http://www.cdfa.ca.gov/statist... - April Russo
I don't consider it a competition. But there are legitimate reasons to be concerned about both droughts, regardless of percentages. - April Russo
April, yes, a very large percentage. I get the concerns but as THE primary reason that brings forth a multi paragraph rant which leads to calls to reject something because of it? - Johnny from iPhone
What rant are you referring to? And who/what is being rejected? I don't understand where the comparison is even coming from. I do know this: About half of all the fruits, vegetables, and nuts consumed in the US are grown in CA. While we do have plenty of locally grown produce in my small home state of NJ (on the other side of the country, where there is no drought), of those things that... more... - April Russo
An ALS/Ice Bucket Challenge. Our drought conditions are so bad here that the government gave out small timers so we could make sure our showers were under 3 minutes. We were on severe water restrictions etc. I GET the idea but as a smokescreen for just not giving or just letting the fad go by, it's weak. - Johnny from iPhone
Ok, now I see where you are coming from. Yeah, that's a bit of a lame argument, as if all the buckets dumped elsewhere in the world could have realistically helped the situation in CA (not), and therefore we should all be selfish assholes, and all the people with ALS deserve to suffer and should never have a cure. Yes, that deserves an eye-roll. Meanwhile, there are people in my home... more... - April Russo
Even being smack dab in the middle of a severe drought I find that to be one of the weakest arguments against the IBC and I'm already over hearing it. If anything, we should be more reflective of the fact that we're wasting clean water while others in the world suffer without. At least if we're dumping the water here during the challenge, it's eventually going back into our groundwater or our atmosphere. Doesn't help folks on other continents with potable water issues. - Hookuh Tinypants
My response is that if you really feel that strongly about not wasting water, then don't. There are plenty of ways one can participate in this without wasting water. Does the bucket really have to contain water? Can it contain something else, such as milk? https://www.google.com/search... Can it be all ice...reusable ice? http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/store... There is never an excuse for being an asshole, except that you want to be one. - April Russo
Tinypants, agreed, although through OxFam I have learnt how sickeningly cheap it is to address lots of water issues in those countries. It ALMOST makes me think that powerful nations (and the nations themselves) keep the situation as is because it helps suppress the population... but that's a WHOLE different conversation ;) - Johnny from iPhone
Totally. But too, in some cases it's not as simple as having money to hand over a country to pay for a solution. Some of the solutions aren't that easy to implement, and quite a bit of it hinges on science itself. Altogether it's sticky and sad and frustrating. But that is most definitely something for a different conversation altogether. - Hookuh Tinypants
(By the way, proud of you for the work you do for Oxfam. That is some awesome shit and you need to like wear a shirt telling people that.) - Hookuh Tinypants
^^ I agree! - April Russo

Enough crankiness. Here is a good news story http://www.news.com.au/lifestyle/real-life/ambulance-officer-covers-parking-ticket-bill-for-grieving-woodstock-woman/story-fnixwvgh-1227037747634
AN AMBULANCE officer's kindness has overwhelmed a Victorian woman grieving the death of her mother. National Patient Transport Services officer Marc Primrose found a parking fine in the ambulance he used to help transport Rosemary Morgan’s mother Doreen from McKenna House Palliative Care in Broadmeadows to her Woodstock home on June 17. The fine belonged to Mrs Morgan, whose mum died at the family home three days later. Mr Primrose, a trainee ambulance paramedic, sensed the grief the family would have been going through and didn’t think twice about paying the $129 fine for her. - Johnny

ALS IBC has raised 70 million. Last year ALS raised 4 million. Even if this is just a flash in the pan event, they've almost tripled their expected donation target for the next 10 years.
It's hard to explain why I like the ALS Ice Bucket stuff without comparing it to the awareness/funding/treatment of other diseases. I won't.
I dislike being right when I'm right about ultimately shitty things.

In culinary terms, when I say my dish is "rustic" I actually mean "I couldn't be fucked chopping all this stuff properly".
New Fun Game: Reading the anti-ice bucket challenge posts and working out if that person would donate to any charitable cause at all.
Expecting a person who belongs to a group who is constantly discriminated against to "just get a job" is like asking an armless man to climb a ladder. Yes, it is possible, but it's harder than you think (or would like to believe it is to suit your own prejudices).
Dear Cardinal Pell, I fixed your analogy: Rather than a trucking company, it should be school bus company #AusPol
I think we should make a clear distinction between a racist and a fuckwit. Racism can be combatted with education but a fuckwit is a fuckwit
