It's horrifying. They've just closed the centre (no food, no water and no protection) and our piece of shit government still won't take these poor men in, despite massive protests. Worse, they won't let anyone else take them either!

At this stage, we're just hoping that New Zealand give us the finger and just go in and TAKE them. And then initiate proceedings to charge Dutton and co. with human rights abuses.

The title had me very confused! I forgot that someone will find a way to make a profit off anything, even something as solitary as running.

I've always run alone, and my preferred distance 7-10 km doesn't fit into most events. Is group racing a good experience?

His writing feels very undisciplined to me. Events and people of greater and lesser significance are jumbled up together and what seemed to be entire plot lines are simply cut off or abandoned because (I think) the author has become distracted by something else.

Note the relevance to goats milk as well.

I've just always accepted it without thinking much about it, but now you have me interested as well! Time for some reading, I think.

I find a few drops of calcium chloride really firms up my yoghurt.

Edit: Spelling. Effing autocomplete.

I bet you're right. Isn't there already a trucker-specific brand of country music?

In Australia, being a participating member of your local rifle club is required to keep your firearms licence. They say it's to keep up to date on health and safety issues, etc. I've always thought it's so your mates will notice if you start to go funny. Maybe that would be a gentle first step?

Isolation = No guns?

Hehe, just noticed the "old news" tag.

Do I need to read the article? Because the answer to that question is obviously "Yes". I'm advising anyone I know who works in the industry to GTFO now, while they can still sell their trucks and reskill.

I think nursing homes are going to look VERY different by the time we're of an age to live in them. WiFi is going to be a must.

Video games and online activities are going to be constant, residents will have their own electronics and they won't be as dependent on staff and family members to have their needs met. If we can manage our weight and deal with any sensory issues as they come up (cataract surgery, hearing aids, etc) I believe the current crop of under forties will be the least affected by dementia so far.

I just finished Dreamland and would officially like to apologise for my complete lack of understanding regarding the US opiate epidemic. I assumed it was slightly worse than our "ice epidemic" here in Oz, which is a non-event but something that pollies love to talk about in the lead up to election time.
