@georgiew Can we assume a connection to what you refer to the 'well being industry' and the woo woo industry?

@gu3st Quote: "Your definition of 'freedom' comes from the privilege and self-centeredness allowed you by the very free society that Australia offers" End Quote


I agree with you, but I had to add. Careful now, this sounds eerily like paraphrasing Colonel Jessup in the court room drama (Jack Nicholson/Tom Cruise) in the film a Few Good Men.

"I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it!" - Col Jessup

@katp Lies and falsehood. There is no such thing as reading too many gossip magazines!

This is what happens when you play Paintball - at least that was my answer to my Mum when I was 16.


Truth be told - I don't think she bought it for one second. It saved an awkward conversation though for which I'm grateful.

@taniagardner I'm curious now. Do you find there is an age difference. For example, young people tend to get lip fillers while older people opt for botox?

@laura__palmer Well yes, but this only applies if you are from Tasmania - everyone knows it's too cold there to frown or smile without breaking something. :o)

@rush It does not - but maybe she is notoriously private and so clearly hiding something?

LOL Is throwing people under the bus the latest trend for Premiers?


Dan Andrews from Victoria did the same with his Health Minister Jenny Mikakos who was forced to resign.

One of the mysteries of the universe is whenever a couple is known as 'notoriously private' their past, dating back over 2 decades will be examined in minute detail.


I'm pretty sure celebrities do it intentionally as some sort of reverse psychology to get even more attention ;o)

@Rachel Hamlen She likes to hunt?

I'm so confused. The article appears to be related to recent events but the comments are 2 years old.


I mean, I know the whole Covid lockdown has warped time perception for everyone so 2 years seems like 2 months but this is just the proof

@an Where are all these people who are missing cancer treatments? I have a lingering suspicion you may be indulging in taking the truth for a wayward stroll, some light exercise and stretches.

@ashleighrae Yeah, it's tip-toeing through a bureaucratic minefield. I did want to ask, what does JSP stand for?

@simple simon I agree 98% but I do allow some leeway since The Blues Brothers is 2% away from being a musical.

@gu3st Perhaps it's an allusion to our resilience and ability to bounce back much like rubber. But I'm no expert, so I'll leave it to others to cover it. :o)

@snorks That was 2 years ago and much can change in that time. I prefer more recent data.


 @FieldMarshalEpic posed the same opinion, but only 5 months ago and was deemed to indeed be holding an unpopular opinion. I'm not one to question your research Snorks, but I do suspect you are indulging in cherry picking to intentionally skew the obvious - namely, no one can dislike Bohemian Rhapsody. ;o)

@cat There is some sort of provision for this with Centrelink, though it does not necessarily need a psychiatrist certification, which could be difficult to arrange for many. 


A GP can provide a temporary exemption from the job seeking requirements, but this only lasts for 3 months and a new form has to be lodged once it expires. It's not perfect, but it's at least something for the OP to consider.

random dude July 16, 2021

@snorks I've checked that sub out previously. I don't think they're ready yet for anyone dissing Bohemian Rhapsody.

@rush Good question, at first I thought air drying would do the trick, but then wouldn't putting on clothes have the same effect as towels?

Since this article was published, the Police body-cam footage has now been released and I'm wondering what the view here is from readers and the MM authors given more accurate information.
