  • Hard News: How much speech does it take?,

    Eruv the dog the bit you...

    one line
    hooked and sunk
    (the whole thing)

    the line
    you have to draw it somewhere
    (all art begins here)

    straight line
    plumbed
    (with all the right angles)

    off line
    if not over the...
    (not connecting)

    what's my line
    dirty linen airing
    (and pocket lining)

    line seed
    linum - flax - old rope
    (the fibre of society)

    YOU are the line
    draw your own conclusions
    (string theory )

    Just a chalice guy?

    First and most likely is cross pollination between
    the same or related species.

    aaah! So Jesus pollinated the cross with his blood,
    thus sowing the seeds of Christianity....
    After all his dad was a carpenter!
    Or was he?
    We need some God Particles to test!

    I say, boy, play Misty for me...

    Bomber Bradbury called you a middle class fog horn

    a useful device to guide one through PC Soupers...

  • Up Front: P.A. Story, in reply to Emma Hart,

    Mains-dream media...

    I’ve worked out which bit I’ll be using for the OGB...

    Every time I see OGB I can only think of the OGB restaurant
    now in limbo in the Old Government Building in the Square...


    Where's Oor Wullie ...

    We’re at the witch’s place. Where is the Winkie of St Richie?

    ...in the Mall?
    ...recovered in the breakdown?

    St Richie is a 7*
    which could be a Sven
    (RWC rules - no Tooheys, Tui only)
    which implies Scan-Dan-avian
    ergo: get Carter the Fly Half
    to kick the winkie into touch
    touche!

    thank the Lawd it's not a Twinkie!
    'cos that would be in the pantry



    *but if he was a 9
    ya could have St Rych 9 the Alky Lord
    (derived from that Shady Knight nux vomica )

    and in keeping with the Sirenian connection
    St Richie's middle (earth?) name is Hugh - spooky!
    NB: his nickname is Fluffy!

  • Southerly: Things to be Grateful For: A…, in reply to Steve Barnes,

    Chchch re-cindered...

    Didn’t the ChCh City Council make those illegal under the clean air rules or somesuch?

    I believe they kinda rescinded that for the duration, saying that people could use fireplaces and existing log burners with impunity to keep warm as needed, it seemed a bit of a hollow offering when there seem to be hardly any viable chimneys around, though I do smell coal being burnt out there... though they have said people creating excessive smoke would get warnings...
    So the flue season is upon us...

    Junk male...

    There is no reason to even remotely believe that
    the “escape” of DNA could cause any harm...

    Just so long as that dangerous human DNA stays imprisoned
    on the planet, but I fear it has galactic ambitions - perhaps it is
    just returning home?

    The Roddenberry Gene has already paved the way...

  • Hard News: How much speech does it take?,

    Nom de grrrrr...
    I take on board the various reasons outlined above for using pseudonyms or just plain anonymity (or is that Anon-Walter-Mitty ) - but I do take particular issue with Mainstream Newspapers not allowing anonymous letters in their print editions, while creating often festering sinkholes of bile with their (allegedly moderated) web versions.
    Are there not laws against using electronic media (phones, emails, etc), or even normal mail, to intimidate or threaten others?
    So perhaps there should be a web ombudsman or investigation unit that has the right to obtain the registered email or IP addresses and other identifying information of anonymous commenters who repeatedly stoop to abuse or hate - as others have said freedom of speech is a right and privilege to be used responsibly and accountably, and people need to be mindful of the consequences of their, sometimes impulsive and other times wilful, actions
