    Its a long and involved story that I cant really be bothered trying to put into words but as a result of it , I am not exactly sure whether to feel like a lifetime acheivement occured or whether I am a bad person .....

    But recently I learned that a "solar panel company" unsolicited cold caller can indeed be reduced to throat wretching sobs and tears on the phone .....

    ( all of this happened without me raising my voice, swearing, or hanging up .... but amazingly by the time the 15 minute phone call had ended ... with 3-4 mins of uncontrolled sobbing on his behalf ... He had agreed to remove my details from the list and apologised profusely )

    Awwww, did FM ask sensible, detailed and persistent questions of a cold caller? Behold the f*&^s I give for the caller.
    Both the calls I've had on my voip excuse for a phone had just been both of us shouting "can you hear me? HELLO, HELLO"

    < Takes bat and ball & goes home.
    I ain't ringing you again FM nor MrG! That was my best Helstra accent too! An education in the explicit savageries of the Oztrillian langwidge for me and, a soggy hanky. I can get that affect ringing for a takeaway curry.
    I had 2 calls on the landline today from anyone one but Helstra saying that my internet was shutting down in 2 hours and I could stop it by getting my pc booted up and going to 'team viewer'. That was a new approach.

    Abbot: Climate change is good
    https://www.theguardian.com/australi...bly-doing-good

    Over 60's do have a higher death rate during winter in Aus.
    http://www.abc.net.au/news/factcheck...eating/8780588

    But how will the rate change with 50C summer days?

    Welcome to the new type of climate denier... Too lazy to contradict or discredit scientists, now they just ignore them (e.g. Finkle) and tell us the planet is too cold anyway.

    Lucky we'll have plenty of coal power to keep the heaters on, during our freezing cold summer.

    TIL that it's 8022 steps to the letter box and back, or 59 million dog steps.

    Well im just back from having spent 2 hours with a very exotic young lady in my mouth...

    In other words i learned that a visit to the dental hospital for a scrape and clean can remove almost any sign i'd ever smoked.

    Next week appointment they will rmeove the remaining stains

    One small compound filling replaced also, least bad filling experience ever...
