Does NSA count as a word?
Jay Rosen was pretty scathing of the Newsnight Interview
He even got Ian Katz, the Editor of Newsnight, responding. Still wasn't impressed.
Bunging someone 2 hour postpartum into a car is a seriously bad idea.
Not only is it uncomfortable, it could well be seriously dangerous. A friend had a massive bleed a couple of hours after her second birth. It was life threatening even though she was in hospital at the time.
Good to hear all went well (not counting the earthquake thing).
The Lange story after we withdrew from the nuclear club is instructive. He had a ton of shit poured on him.
Me1: Something something bullying.
Me2: Realpolitik! Something something naive!
For me the instructive part of the nuclear free and Rainbow Warrior episodes was the realisation that the US had no inherent interest or allegiance to us, merely what service we could provide as a vassal state. We are forgetting that lesson. Australia has never learnt it.
We got punished for defiance. I say fuck `em!
And the main problem with the 2003 version was that we subsequently found that the GCSB was secretly ignoring its legislation.
Which seems to be the culture of these sorts of organisations, namely "A Few Good Men"-eqsue. You can't handle the truth etc.
This 1983(!) article about the NSA could have been written yesterday, and shows the organisation was always tacitly given it's head to engage in activities that were solidly illegal.
Great pic Russell!
I feel your pain. Literally. The adorable Aardman movie “Chicken Run” morphed into “Chicken Pie Machine” game. Haven’t done it much in the last few years, but when pushed into it the other day I almost killed myself – my son is now almost 12 and he is BLOODY HEAVY. I may well not be as strong as I once was …
Thunderbirds: my god they need a decent edit. Endless shots of bow-waves/vehicle wheels/plane wings (whatever is about to crack/blow out/fall off).
My youngest (girl) just wasn’t as into the rough stuff as my older two (boy & girl). When I tried twirling her round and throwing her in the air the poor thing was terrified, and through the sobs made me promise not to do that again. They all grow up with different experiences, and she gets to have a way cool older brother to watch do crazy things.

No, just simply that I’ll see something on TV I wouldn’t mind watching, from the start, but since I didn’t record it already, and will probably forget to watch again in 50 minutes on +1, I’ll just record the +1.
Oh right. I'm possibly over-thinking this a little.
