    Your supply of Guinness was never in danger!


    Here's a pic of me in 2001, outside St. James' Gate in Dublin.

  • You mean it's NATURAL? Gasp!



    All kidding aside, Australia has several species of kites and hawks that literally pick up burning twigs and brush, and spread it to new locations in order to flush out their prey from the impenetrable growth. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_kite

    As firefighters remained on high alert, police revealed 103 of the destructive fires that had lashed Queensland since September were deliberately lit,” The Brisbane Times reported. “Figures obtained by AAP revealed police had dealt with 98 people – 31 adults and 67 juveniles – for deliberately setting fires

    If politicians only got paid according to their district's economic success, there would be no more Democrats.

  • Of course Australia is hotter than it normally is. You'd feel hot too if you were on fucking fire! Good to hear from you Beet.

    "With the first link, the chain is forged. The first speech censured, the first thought forbidden, the first freedom denied, chains us all irrevocably."

  • Climate change - I've just seen Australian PM Scott Morrison publicly declare that the current bush fires in Australia are the result of climate change. Yep, Australia has had its hottest temperatures ever recorded this month, with devastating results. Nuke will claim that "it's all normal", and strangedays will point out that "only 500 people were affected"!




    More after I've had dinner...

    Sorry Beet....but temperatures in Australia were much hotter in the latter part of the 19th and early decades of the 20th century. The current "record" temperatures don't even come close...


    Coercive collective action in the name of the greater good not only is immoral—who decides who has the gun?—it also is destructive of human happiness and ruinous of human potential.

    Do not go all strangedays and confuse temperature "spikes" with the overall average.
