    The Voice. An Australian referendum

    Her head is permanently there. That's the reason she posts so much shit - her head is blocking the customary outlet. On topic I'm more inclined to think the referendum is going to be a NO. When there are significant representative Aboriginal people against it, from all major Parties plus people...

    I still call Australia home

    Some people have no sense of humour. No doubt that includes Meli when it comes to things like this. Everyone should just have addressed her as 'Your Muppetship' and moved on. FKT

    I still call Australia home

    I don't think I need to add my own editorial comment... https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/bandt-needs-to-start-difficult-conversations-with-lidia-thorpe-20221002-p5bmj2.html Pity that Meli can't comment on this. I'm sure she'd have some incisive defence of this sort of bullying...

    Send them back. Why should they escape the consequences of a shitty religious discrimination movement? FKT

    Ukraine and Only Ukraine. If it isn't about Ukraine then fuck off

    Nope. He claims to have lived in Sydney at one point and I assure you, from what he's posted about that, he learned nothing at all. I admire your persistence but the reality is, what you're doing is like mud wrestling a pig. Both of you get filthy, but only one enjoys it. Mikey is in my ignore...

    Food, fixes and notes from the casual coastal sailor.

    Yeah we've done that on 40m steel fishing trawlers. Cut out a big hole, extract engine, do what's needed then weld it all back up again. Generally there's a 'soft patch' intended for this, unlike on f/g boats, so structurally easier. And nobody cares at all about visible weld beads on fishing...

    I still call Australia home

    She's never had a message, all she can manage is to C&P from other sites. Reflection and analysis, maybe not. And since I'm on her secret ignore list, she can't see this observation... FKT

    I still call Australia home

    Meanwhile we see high quality and accountabiity from the Greens... https://www.smh.com.au/politics/federal/lidia-thorpe-is-a-cyclone-making-landfall-in-the-greens-20220928-p5blr8.html Wonder who they'd put forward for a seat on the Voice, assuming it gets up? FKT

    Food, fixes and notes from the casual coastal sailor.

    I watched a (relatively) young woman pull a Gardner 4LW engine from her recently purchased ex-fishing boat last week. She had help and advice, but it was her responsibility and she got it done. If you've ever seen a 4LW engine you'd know it's not like pulling a Yanmar 3GM or similar. Think...

    Girl with patreon account goes sailing in hot place

    Yeah but - I kind of like Maya. In relatively small doses. I'd really, really HATE to be stuck on a small boat with her, though. Far too much fizz and bubble though might well not be like that IRL. Wouldn't take the chance. I do watch their vids, except the boat fettling ones. Those are just...

    Putin is losing his war badly, so bad he threatened nukes. What should the response be if he does?

    I feel your pain - my boat is on the hard ATM and all the white paint needs sanding back and totally re-doing. Big time paint film failure. I am not happy about it. Fortunately the epoxy primer under it is fine. And I think (hah) I've finished the hot work, so when I repaint the deck I...

    Putin and Ukraine

    That's pretty funny - 8 years for shooting the commisar, 10 years for not turning up for military service and sent off to get shot. Lemme see, what shall I do... Reminds me of a story I once read about one of the defunct Chinese Empires. They kept upping the penalties for offences so most...

    Putin is losing his war badly, so bad he threatened nukes. What should the response be if he does?

    Agree with all of that. Meli is truly, profoundly stupid and totally unwilling to read & learn. She actually thinks that Israel should be disbanded and the land returned to the 'original owners' who in this case she says are the current day Palestinians. I told her at the time, blame the...

    Holding Tanks

    Yep. Always use cheap stuff for the prototype. Especially if you're like me and get to the Mk 3 (or later) version before you're happy with it. I recently got to the Plan C Mk 3 version for my autopilot motor mounting position... FKT

    Putin is losing his war badly, so bad he threatened nukes. What should the response be if he does?

    Oh, I can distinguish the difference just fine; there's no doubt about the atmospheric CO2 level rises and who's responsible for THAT. I'm still waiting on people actually getting serious about addressing the issues. Until that happens, it's just noise. And maybe I'll get a deep waterfront place...

    Putin is losing his war badly, so bad he threatened nukes. What should the response be if he does?

    Don't try to explain shit like that to Meli, it's a total waste of time. It's like trying to explain sea level rise to people who have NFI that it's been rising for the last 20K years. FKT

    Putin is losing his war badly, so bad he threatened nukes. What should the response be if he does?

    There is one play that I've not seen discussed, because it's really, really radical. At the breakup of the USSR, Ukraine was a nuclear power. In return for security guarantees, they gave up their nukes. Well the security guarantees have turned out to be worthless, so returning to the status...

    An embarrassing first for Australia-Climate change responsibilities

    I keep pointing out that a huge percentage of humanity lives on the coastal fringes, and sea levels have been rising for the past 20K years. The *rate of change* has likely increased due to human CO2 emissions, but that's all. That's bad enough, true, but nobody globally is serious about...
