  1. so its the white patriarchal racist western colonialism to blame.....rightio, gotcha......
  2. moonie. obviously a new virus could evolve anywhere in the world even in a well regulated market and with normal regulated farmed animals but the chances are minimised and could be identified quicker but wet markets where exotics are sold live and either slaughtered at the market while you wait or taken home to slaughter all mixed up in an unhygienic environment with no health officials or any controls is just a disaster waiting to happen and largely preventable. I understand it is a long standing custom and if we didn't now live in such a connected global world i'd say it was their business, but that's not the reality of most of the world now so it becomes our concern too and no the animal sourced virus doesn't necessarily have to be eaten to be transmitted after sars china undertook to abolish the wet markets but failed to do so. And as i said it's not just china. i think (hope) this will be the death knell for such markets (wherever they are). maybe the who can stop politicking and do something about it
  3. was just talking on the phone to a friend in eildon. holiday makers are everywhere up there today. boat ramps are all closed but there are heaps of boats out on the weir. he's been involved with holiday makers in the past and today he's had heaps of them just knocking on his door asking for this and that. He's put up a sign that all enquiries must first be by phone but they all just ignore that. A friend of his has multiple sclerosis and is aged and at high risk, so her sister just drove up from melbourne and dumped her teenage kids with her to have a "holiday" and left. her sister is a nurse too. idiots everywhere
  4. ch9 just don't want to hand over any money, naturally, but i can understand being miffed if the nrl weren't in close collaboration with them re future plans for 2020 season.
  5. are you saying queenslanders eat bats? yuk, i didn't know that. but nothing surprises me about queenslanders anyway we were talking about wet markets of exotic wildlife, i'd be horrified if any existed here, even in qld
  6. but it's not just china, many (most) asian countries are big on eating/handling/butchering exotic wildlife in uncontrolled, unhygienic circumstances let's hope they too do something about it or globalisation will be death of all of us
  7. it might be from a bygone era but just cherry picking a few examples doesn't prove that it doesn't work. it certainly worked for norm smith and ron barassi and i could name many others. no doubt times have changed but it's a much more complex issue than just a question of bending to someone's will
  8. on what basis? 10 and 41 games. not obscure enough?
  9. not really, only anecdotal claims that player x said assistant coach y helped him with his z which doesn't in itself justify 10 full time highly paid assistant coaches let alone all the other specialist roles there has been this obsession in recent years (decades) about getting the extra 1% or even .1% advantage which is an inevitable consequence of increased professionalism, but somewhere along the way basic and natural football skills took a back seat
  10. even leading scientists are pulling figures out of their arrrz. there is more unknowns than knowns. it's still unchartered territory. if life or death choices are made in the future it will not just be science based......science. ethics, economics and politics will all play a part. we've all read about aktion t4 based on science and medicine with a good taste of ideology thrown in. and that went down well didn't it.
  11. nice one andy. we already knew you were a good man, this thoughtful act just reinforced it.
  12. wow, what an ideologue you are, gonzo. you can belittle an opinion without even reading it. exactly what's wrong with political discourse in this country
  13. we should get both blockbusters as it is still our turn. this years non event can't possibly count no sharing required though i don't like the way it has turned into 2 one year, zero the next year loop. So, we could share one next 2 years then revert to 1 per year so income is consistent year to year
  14. i didn't realise that socialists make every decision based on maximising profits 🥴
  15. you must remember charity, she had two knockout sisters, faith and hope.
  16. why use "we"? I can understand your personal view but don't be so presumptive of other peoples' views/conditions. You don't talk for them. and btw i usually get value from my membership, win or lose. i follow footy in general and the mfc
  17. quite agree rab, and for the latter camp it would better to argue for the benefits with a carrot rather than a big personal stick .
  18. wow, moonie, i didn't realise uncle bitters was stuck in america
  19. such a stupid statement........so judgemental and ignorant of other people's situation. some may have forked out 1,000s for a family. not your usual standard adc
  20. that's totally up to the individuals themselves and for their reasons whatever they may be and it's not up to others to even question their reasons for doing so or pass any judgement i''ll probably leave mine there, though it doesn't add up to much
