    I see the parrot is leaving skynews after they cancelled his prime time show.

    Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

    I wonder if his little discussions with craig "anti-vax sack o' shit" kelly a few weeks back was a factor.

    I admit to tearing up.

    Hey, @Miss Chicken and @Teacock, can you see the aurora named after me (:D ) from your place?

    Sorry, I did not look out of the window last night so I did not see an aurora.

    I don't get it there's train cars in NYC that have been running for decades without cracking or falling apart, yes I know bad comparison but these things are not even old yet they have cracks..... What are they made of, cardboard?

    I can't find it, but there was a great meme, Walid Ali interviewing Scummo.

    WALID: What's your favourite lie?

    SCOTT: I've never lied.

    WALID: That's my favourite too.

    It's Waleed and I remember that little spot.

    Why in the hell would you even make this a public issue?

    No snow on Mount Wellington today. I was swearing when I woke up a couple of days ago and it was so cold :( I think Hobart has only had a couple of spring days in the last few weeks. We have had a lot of rain on top of the cold.

    Why has Morrison's "I've never told a lie in office" thing become a narrative? Does anyone take that at all seriously, yet he said it with a straight face. Also he talks out both sides of his mouth condemning the rowdy antivax protests, and yet also sympathizing with them.

    some-one should tell george christiansen aka the member for manilia aka another family values hypocrite that when comparing the covid lockdowns to the nazis he should remember under such regimes he'd have met a nasty end for his comments.

    that he's able to stand up and open his stupid yap thoroughly discredits his claims.

    Yes well, and that other tactic of taking anyone that is too critical to court for defamation, but that's not so much George but a lot of the current mob.
