An RAAF Boeing 707 did a ‘farewell’ flight over Sydney today as it is going to be decommissioned. It was tailed by a fighter jet that was taking photos. Apparently a whole swarm of Sydney office workers freaked out! Omg, more terrorists using the same plot as before!!
Chillax people, you’re pissing me off.
Odds are, everything!
In a recent post about Googles data storage on SeoMoz.org it is revealed just how much data is stored about you by the Internet Behemoth.
Blinky the fish has recently been spotted swimming around one of Sydney’s best suburbs where the radiation levels are somewhat Chernobyl-like.
In all seriousness, imagine buying a house that you cant live in because of the level of radioactivity from uranium mining. And in Sydney’s Hunters Hill!
I am incredibly saddened by this news. Jane and Glenn McGrath founded the McGrath foundation which continually endeavors to place breast-care nurses in more hospitals (particularly in rural areas). If nothing else, she was just another lovely woman brought down by this disease (My mother died of complications surrounding cancer when I was 18).
My thoughts go to Glenn and their two children.
In other news, Teenagers in the UK have been using google maps to locate neighbours’ swimming pools for late night dip-n-dash sessions.
Crazy video of a guy stealing his own bike in broad daylight. Make sure you watch it til at least the third 'method'.
Anybody that knows me knows that I am a bit of a procrastinator. No, no – I am, really. So in my attempt at changing some aspects of my life (namely trying to adopt GTD methodologies) I found a site on Structured Procrastinating. I read part of the first page before getting distracted and now I have just realised that it has been an open tab in Firefox since last week and every time I notice it, I think “I’ll get to that later”.
Man.. This is going to take more work than I initially expected.
For years now the Japanese have been whaling in Australian waters and for a long time our government has not done anything about it. Until Now. Kevin Rudd has threatened to take the Japanese to court over whaling issues. Or should I say ‘had’.
Kevin Rudd today has announced that he and Japan’s leader, Prime Minister Yasuo Fukuda, have “agreed to disagree” on the topic of whaling and no further action will be taken. What the hell kind of action is that?
I have to admit to you that I am not sold by economic promises by politicians. Money is not a big drive for me. But animal welfare and environmental issues do drive me and this was a campaign promise and was one of many contributing factors for me voting for the guy.
Now, before you start chuckling at me believing campaign promises, you have to admit that Kevin Rudd has seriously made a difference since coming to power. He has ratified Kyoto, he has said sorry to our indigenous people. He has made a difference. But now he has stalled.
While I am very happy about our relationship with Japan, there has been a lot of history about other countries’ relationships with japan going sour. (Not that I am expecting this to happen, just that diplomatic relationships are not all they are hyped up to be).
I know that the last Japanese whale hunt killed only two thirds of their targeted Minke whales and that the Minke Whales are not endangered, but thats only due to the direct action of some fantastic activists from Sea Shepherd (my heroes) and Greenpeace. Not because of our $1m surveillance ship that spent most of its time in port.
I think this is my first let down by our new Government. I am disappointed in you, Mr Rudd. I am sorry to say it because I do defend you a lot, but I am now afraid of what other issues you’l simply ‘agree to disagree’ on.
That's right and we don't have long to wait either. 17th of June. 5 Days away.
