No matter how complex the problem is, the answer is always straight forward. It's people's dickishness that makes the whole thing bendy.
A cricketer passing away may not be the most important news but it's still important news. Aspiration and achievement is what life is about.

The best answer to someone calling you a "Feminist" or "SJW" is "You say that like it's a bad thing." They implode while trying to explain.

This would interest me more than the new movie - Mo Kargas
Yeah. Look, the new movie interests me but not necessarily as a Jurassic Park movie. If Pratt and his #ChrisPrattRaptorPosse are going to the be the leads then it becomes a hunter movie, not an escape movie. It would be as if they're making the Robert Muldoon version of events. I'll be there opening night (as I have with the other 3) but I'm not expecting the same reaction as when I was 13 years old. - Johnny
Yeah. Fun fact: still have all the collectible Jurassic Park cards - Mo Kargas
Same. I have the gold T-Rex in one of those plastic cases ;) - Johnny
I'm almost tempted to hook up my SNES and play Jurassic Park again... then I remember the shitty non-ending and the temptation fades.

I wonder if Pratt's character in #JurassicWorld is Robert Muldoon's son. If not, it's just a cookie cutter character. http://t.co/fvGA6BhQnu

The problem with cleaning up the cheek line of my beard to a neat line is it now looks like I'm wearing a fake beard. #HirsuteLifestyle
I ... would watch that movie. Not necessarily the JW one, but one with Chris Pratt riding dinosaurs. - Jennifer Dittrich
A Dino-Riders movie would kick ass. That and a M.A.S.K. movie. - Johnny
Going to leave this hashtag here so when #JurassicWorld comes out I can see if my fears were overblown or accurate: #ChrisPrattRaptorPosse
I've mulled it over and #JurassicWorld gets a very soft "yes". Reserving judgment until something with Vincent D'Onofrio shows up.

With the events over the weekend in combination of not knowing what airsoft toys are, I went and googled them. Back in my day, our guns looked nothing like real guns. They were either space-y, western-y or uber plastic-y fake. Airsoft makes specific realistic replicas, even down to different versions of gun inside a gun model type. I'm sorry, but
that's just disturbing. - Johnny
agreed. - Big Joe Silence
"SIDEBAR: Super Soakers were invented by a Black man because Black kids were getting killed by police for holding Intertech water guns..." - https://twitter.com/Dart_Ad... , "I repeat, POLICE WERE MURDERING BLACK KIDS HOLDING WATER GUNS THAT LOOKED LIKE REAL GUNS SO OFTEN A DUDE MADE DAYGLO WATER GUNS & GOT RICH" - https://twitter.com/Dart_Ad... - Andrew C (✔)
"I'd just like to point out to anyone asking why our water guns looked so realistic, toy guns for boys were made out of METAL in the 60's..." - https://twitter.com/Dart_Ad... - Andrew C (✔)
Also, as an 80s kid, I asked my parents for Megatron or Optimus Prime one Xmas and they got me Megatron (I think Optimus was sold out), and Megatron transformed into a pretty realistic-looking pistol at the time. - Andrew C (✔)
I was a kid in Ontario in the 70s and early 80s. I was able to get a bunch of WWII toys that included webbing, a pistol, a rifle, and a plastic grenade. EDIT: and a helment. - Brent Schaus
Andrew, while not diminishing the importance of your reply, Lonnie Johnson (the black man) was a NASA engineer and realised he had a possible toy while testing his environmentally friendly heat pump that used water instead of Freon. The "Black kids were getting killed by police for holding Intertech water guns" seems to be something that is grafted onto that story. - Johnny
Fair. To my recall - though I was a kid back then - the Super Soaker selling point was the unique (?) pressure system, which outperformed most other water gun designs of the time. I did have an Entertech gun as well, though. And the Wikipedia entry for Entertech says: "The end of Entertech's short-lived success was due in part to incidents in which law enforcement officers shot and... more... - Andrew C (✔)
The Entertech Uzi (?) I had was matte black plastic, with a pretty realistic silhouette. Megatron was even more realistic...ish, with shiny and matte parts. - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, I had a Megatron as well... but given the cost of it at the time, it wasn't something I ever took outside to play cops and robbers with. - Johnny
It wasn't often that I was allowed to play with any type of gun when I was a kid, but I do remember having an "automatic" water Uzi when I was younger. Although it was really cheap plastic, it did definitely look a lot like the real thing. I remember it also made a clicking noise when you pulled the trigger (so it sounded a little like a crappy Uzi, too). Other than that, though, most of the water guns my friends & I played with were clear, neon plastic pistols, so they were very obviously not real guns. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Right. What disturbs me about the airsoft models is the extent and effort that's put into making them exact replicas of the real things. The guns of my youth were really just representations of guns but these seem to cross a line in my head into playing with as-real-as replicas. It's no longer the concept of guns but actual weapons. I admit the gun culture in Oz is different but still, weapons as toys always sits uneasy. The realer the toy weapon, the higher the unease. - Johnny

The most disconcerting aspect of all these #ABCcuts is the notion that the ABC is seen as a "government department". #auspol
To those suggesting that the ABC isn't as important due to citizen journalism may want to listen to what those citizens are saying #AusPol
