We all need to be positive for Dan.

Man, you got to get all the stuff she left at your place, and bin it. Walk away bro. It'll make you look strong and attractive and she'll come crawling back when you move to Canberra, win the election and become PM.

Feeling positive about Australia again. Some twitter footage and some serious line breaks. Australia is back in the game.

This is positivity. This is the Aussies we once loved.

The positive is that this was not from Melbourne yesterday...

And now we can collectively laugh at you.

No you can’t.

I don’t live there and take pride that my life is busy enough to not verify each

Positively looking forward to eating. I’m in O’Mara’s Hotel, Stanthorpe with a
schooey of Toohey’s Old in front of me. I’m waiting for beef & guinness pie, at which time
I will swap to a local red.

John Elliot is dead. That is an unalloyed positive with Australian characteristics.

According to an ABC News piece: 'Former Victorian premier Jeff Kennett told 3AW that Mr Elliott had an ability to bring people together.'.

John Elliot and Jeff Kennett shared an ability to bring people together in agreement that both are / were toxic fúcks.

One of Elliott's partners in crime was Bob Cowper, former Test cricketer, and son of Wallaby Dave Cowper. Bob Cowper got out early on and spent the rest of his life in Monaco.

Another was Peter Scanlon. He was a snake, but a clever one. I had some minor dealings with him when he and another Melbourne snake mounted a takeover of a technology company of which I was General Manager. They succeeded, and I walked. It took them a couple of years to realise that the fact that they knew fark all about IT did matter after all, by which time it was too late for them. And the company.

Elliott's nickname was "Thug", allegedly based on his prowess as an enforcer playing park footy. Apparently he kept playing until he was well into his forties.

It's funny how I'm sitting reading this whilst (supposed to be) completing my yearly HR Training modules.

Sadly, there are still dinosaurs like this in businesses.

Luckily, as a contractor, I tell them where to go if they arc up

6 out of 10 adult Australians are fully vaccinated. We will have 80% of the adult population vaccinated some time in November. Hundreds of thousands of 12 to 16 years olds have also had their first jab.

Go Team Australia!

Blueberries are $1.50 a punnet at my local Woolies. They're literally cheaper than chips. I've been smashing them.

Two doses of positivity from the one source today, viz. ABC News website.

First and foremost, Fatty McFuckface Palmer has lost his High Court challenge re a WA law preventing him suing the state for up to $30 billion.

Har farcan har many times over. :thumbup:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-10-13/ ... /100534312

Second, a Sydney magistrate has waved away a NSW police application to suppress Friendly Jordies’ videos about an ongoing court case against his producer, who is accused of stalking former NSW deputy premier, John Barilaro.

Sergeant Assaad, appearing for the NSW police, insisted Mr Shanks was "leading the charge" and said the videos had the potential to influence witnesses.

"That's a charge? God, it's not even a walk through the park. It's inane," the magistrate replied.

Bad luck, boys and girls in blue. Next time, try harder or don’t bother.

We have granted a provisional determination to Pfizer Australia in relation to its #COVID19 vaccine, COMIRNATY.
Pfizer is now eligible to apply to the TGA to vary the provisional approval for the vaccine to include children aged 5 to 11 years.

I go on a fishing trip tomorrow up to Lake Borumba and in about an hour or so I'm doing a gig at a smashing new comedy club in town. The curator doesn't know me or know of me and is only giving me a 5 minute spot. I've decided to holster the "don't you know who I am" rant and just focus on dominating for 5 minutes...give or take another 3-4.
