They basically used similar tactics the Proud and Boogaloo Boys used on January 6th (as shown by the Four Corners expose). Blend into the crowd and spread chaos.

This thread was started with the intention of being a light-hearted distraction. Can I suggest if you want to discuss the merits or otherwise of Melbourne's lockdowns, protests or the media that you take that debate elsewhere? In the meantime, the rest of us will enjoy the leadup to the most significant game in MFC history since September 1964.

Your spot on and I know that very few protesters where tradies, saying Dan Andrews know it was the union and that why he shut the construction is a big lie, he is vindictive and often punishes everybody if a few goes against him, shutting down government projects is economic vandalism.

A mate of mine passed away the night before the quake.  I reckon it was him saying Go Dees as he left this mortal coil.  The earthquake can be nothing but a good omen for us.  It is emblematic of the seismic shift in our team, our skill, our selflessness and we are hell bent on getting the big one.  When you raise hell, you have to make a lot of noise and shake things up a bit.

Looks just like an easily distracted cat to me, SB. The weird thing is that animals are particularly sensitive to impending earthquakes. I remember being amazed at the stat from the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami that no dead animals were found after the event other than those in ‘captivity’, meaning fenced, penned, caged, etc. It’s apparently well established that animals know it’s coming well ahead of time, so p***-off for high ground. Birds are the first to react, by going noisy nutty, then flying off en masse pre-earthquake. There was another story about a small island off the Indian coast, inhabited by indigenous peoples, which was in the direct path of the wave. All survived because they’d made for high ground well before the Tsunami arrived. Probably by paying attention to the birds! 

This may interest you as a member of the medical profession Webber. Last year I was caring for my father with advanced Alzheimer's. One evening he had a crazy flare-up like nothing even close to what I had experienced previously - he was completely out of control. Super anxious and rambling about death and trying to find some car keys to flee the house. I had to call another family member for support, and while I was on the phone a decent sized earthquake struck off the coast of Darwin, enough to briefly rattle the house. Afterwards he chilled right out again, like nothing had happened. I have absolutely no doubt that it wasn't a coincidence. Have you ever heard of anything like that before?

I won’t be surprised if research shows “mundane” (I.e. entirely physical) crises resolve mental episodes. The human brain is great but it’s a piece of work.

That’s extraordinary, Skuit, and your instinct about its non-coincidental nature is worth trusting. Not to get too heavy, but if you follow your thread to ‘brain filter theory’ -  based on consciousness being non-physical, and that Alzheimer’s renders his ‘filter’ dysfunctional, who’s to say it wasn’t revealing a consciousness link much like that which animals exhibit and act on naturally. His mania therefore could have been a form of pre-cognition of the earthquake. There’s a whole plethora of  ‘non-coincidences’ people have like this, most of which go unreported sadly - due to fear, shame, ridicule, etc. I can already see some here reading this with a WTF dismissal. PM me if you want to chat about it.

There is no doubt that other non-human animals have some way of knowing an event such as an earthquake is to occur before it happens. It would therefore not surprise me if humans might be able to as well. Perhaps our cognitive processes supress belief in what otherwise might be considered to be unbelievable. Any, I can understand that your experience may not have been "just" a coincidence.  

We have knowledge gained from insights over thousands of years. We didn't always understand gravity until Newton saw an apple. And whoever worked out that ocean tides were related to the phases of the moon was probably first thought to be a lunatic (pun intended).

    BLUE VIBE AT IKON by Meggs

    It was such a nice vibe at Ikon on Friday night.     Princes Park looked in excellent condition, a relaxed but modest crowd and President Kate Roffey and CEO Gary Pert in attendance, greeting fans and shaking hands.     It was an evening with little to complain about for Dees supporters, save for some drizzling rain, a few missed scoring opportunities and the fact that the Dees as raging favourites duly took the four points.   Carlton was always going to struggle to cover

    BLUES AWAY by Meggs

    This Round 5 clash against the Blues at Princes Park (officially known as Ikon Park) is a great chance for the Dees to bounce back to the winning circle following our top-of-the-table loss to Brisbane last week.     Carlton will be missing several key players with the pundits calling 10 to nil.  Raging favouritism is never a comfortable thing for Melbourne supporters but we simply must deliver on Friday night.   History has seen these teams play four times since 2017 with the Dee

    LIONS POUNCE by Meggs

    Early Sunday afternoon Meggs was coffeeing in Mornington and witnessing hail, thunder, lightning, rain, wind and feeling the freezing temperatures and knowing all these elements were heading towards Casey Fields.  Oh dear.  The Brisbane coach had said during the week that he wanted the game moved to Marvel because “if you're going to have two of the better teams in the comp playing, (it warrants) a venue and deck that suits the occasion”.  However, Casey Fields was uncharacteristi

    RAINING PREMIERS by KC from Casey

    If the threatening dark grey skies that loomed above Ikon Park before the VFL Grand Final didn’t provide a sufficiently inhospitable reception for our visitors from sunny Queensland, the rains that bucketed down after quarter time certainly did. For years, the Casey Demons have welcomed opposing teams at their home fortress with rain, hail, wind and frosty conditions and it was just Southport’s luck that they met those conditions head on in the VFL’s big dance. They suited Casey’s skillful

    PRIDE OF VICTORIA by KC from Casey

    When Casey Demons coach Mark Corrigan talks about his charges putting their “best foot forward” on Sunday when they take on the Southport Sharks in the 2022 VFL Grand Final, it’s a signal that his team is on a mission not only for themselves but in  the name of their forebears, the Springvale Scorpions, and indeed for the pride and honour of the entire State of Victoria. The VFL club now known as the Casey Demons last won a premiership flag under the name of the Springvale Scorpions but tha

    NARRM AT HOME by Meggs

    For the fourth consecutive week, and the second week as the mighty Narrm, we take on a Top 8 team. Could this match be a preview of the Season 7 Grand Final?   Our opponents this week, Brisbane, stand undefeated atop the AFLW ladder after slaying the struggling Freo, and the unrated Giants and Gold Coast.  After amassing 225 points for and only 56 against, for a percentage of 401.8%, the pundits are claiming the Lions have the best attack the competition has ever seen.   Brisbane

    CHANGES 2022 by The Oracle

    Part 1: The year we stood still (or did we?).  Premiership coach David Parkin who  coincidentally turned 80 yesterday, famously used to say that even a premiership team needs to bring at least five new players into the fold in order to advance from year to year and therefore, if this adage remains true, then the Melbourne Football Club really did stand still in 2022.  Of the players recruited after the club’s premiership in September, 2021, only Luke Dunstan (5 games) managed to provid

    NARRM BLITZES EARLY by Meggs

    The last time we played the Saints, Pride Round 3 January 2022, it was an arm wrestle for 3 quarters and a Demons highlights package for 1 quarter. Oddly familiar was our outing to Moorabbin on Sunday, except this week we are Narrm and it’s Indigenous Round.   Our highlights package was contained to a first quarter onslaught. Superior work at stoppages and our mids dominant.  We showcased our run and carry and our dynamic forward line.  With Hore, Zanker twice, Bannan, Fitzsimon and Paxy al

    THE CASEY SHOW by KC from Casey

    The Casey Demons will play in the VFL Grand Final at Ikon Park next Sunday after overturning their final round loss to the Brisbane Lions Reserves and dominating the Preliminary Final to emerge victorious by 51 points.  And while the distance in standards between the AFL and VFL at finals time is admittedly a wide one and the opposition and conditions different, there were a few Demons on display who excelled to the point where one was left to ask whether they could have made the difference
