The war of the grasses

It feels like it is more precious than natural platinum hens teeth … and thrice as rare! Spent the evening driving to the Glenaroua Landcare Meeting tonight. The session was interesting, and the side conversations are always fun, but it does take 5 hours out of your Thursday night … so by the time you drive back home, there’s not time to do much else other than the essentials. ...

This is not, in fact, me.
I was sent this by a friend asking me if I had started modelling for Drizabone and R.M.Williams … I know, I know, he looks like me … and has a similar stance … and i have the same jeans … and similar glasses … and the hat … but other than that, we’re nothing alike. I have come to the conclusion that all fat, hairy, glass wearing rural guys look the...
Well, shit, I guess I was duped ...
Well, to be more precise, I guess I was happy to believe a line about evil profiteering pharmaceuticals … After going back and doing a little bit more research about the previous post (Pharmaceuticals ignore cancer cure …) I discover a more detailed analysis and response to the situation: Unfortunately, the New Scientistarticle and articles in the Edmonton Sun featured headlines...

Pharmaceuticals ignore cancer cure ...
Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects. This drug doesn’t require a patent, so...

1 in 8.
In the 200,000 years since Homo Sapiens took her first steps across the African plains, just 57 billion people have ever lived.Astonishingly that means over 12% of all the people ever born are walking the planet at this very moment. Or to put it another way: one in eight people who have ever been born are alive today. — Source [Reposted from xntrek]
Two weeks and still no internet ...
It amazes me that this is 2011 and that I am actually in a metropolitan area. I mean, I’m moving from an outer-outer-outer suburb (55Kms from the CBD) to an inner suburb a mere (12Kms from the CBD) and they can’t sort out internet connections? I guess I shouldn’t be surprised, they can barely manage a phone line. Telstra, that once government owned monopoly of old, claimed that...

Wacky Wednesday Whine
This last week and a half has been hectic. I am in my usual situation of doing toooooooo many things and unable to give any of them up in fear that my life is very much a working reality special of a kerplunk game … Which brings up another point. I realised that my entire life is run by fear. Fear, fear, fear and fear. It may seem strange to some people, but in all aspects of my life,...

Fear the Angry Bird →
The Wall Street Journal recently tested 101 popular mobile applications on iPhone and Droid devices to understand what kind of data each app collects and shares. The study found a huge number of applications that gather and share information that looks unrelated to application functionality. I like Angry Birds. It’s simple and addicting. I had no idea that it was accessing my...

News Corp seeks $100m for Myspace →
ABOUT a half dozen private equity firms and companies are expected to submit bids for News Corp’s Myspace by the end of this week, according to people familiar with the matter. One suitor said that News Corp is seeking bids of no less than $US100 million. News Corp paid $US580m to buy Myspace in 2005. In other news, I will be keeping an eye out for the winning bidder to sell them...

That feeling of feeling simultaneously disappointed and elated by good news? You know, like getting a notice that you won a prize in lotto, and finding out it was $20 … You’re happy that you won, but disappointed it wasn’t a major prize … You know?

We packed, moved and unpacked half our house this weekend … so, that’s all we did. This week we are probably going to do the some more of the same every night as we discovered that since there is no TV, no internet and no computes at our place and while they are available at the rental place, there’s no electricity there until Thursday … that the range of pastime...
