Bloke goers into his doctors and explains that he (the bloke) had been talking to his wife about the pain of childbirth. His wife was convinved that childbirth was the most unbearable pain ever, and the bloke had disagreed with her.

The doctor asks "So what have you come to me for"?

The bloke says "Well, is there any way you can let me experience the pain of childbirth"?

The doctor thinks for a moment ands then replies that he thinks there is a way, but it would require a small operation. The bloke agrees without asking exactly what that may be so they arrange to do it at the local hospital.

As the bloke was coming round after the operation, the doctor appears at his side and hands him a prescription. The bloke read it and finds out the prescription is for a vindaloo curry twice a day for a week. He looks puzzled and asks the doctor how this will let him experience the pain of childbirth?

The doctor smiles and turns away, saying "You've just had your arsehole sewn up...."

Of all of Clancy's books, Red Storm Rising is the one I keep coming back to read over and over. Being in the miitary back in the 80's it all seemed too credible to be dismissed, but saying that "The Hunt for Red October" was being handed around by the sonar guys because it made them sound important for once...



Coming from Edinburgh originally I used to read a lot of the Rebus books, mostly for the car chases. I used to read through and then think "hang on, should he not have turned left there instead of right..."?

Just finished reading the ten books of the "Chronicles of Amber" series by Roger Zelazny, not quite the easiest set of books to follow but a good fantasy story none the less.

I've just started "Passchendaele" by Lyn Macdonald. It tells the story of the third battle of Ypres in 1917, and I have a family connection with that battle it should be interesting reading

I suppose it depends on which language you are being profane in, English has the obvious swear words that everyone knows, but there are also some quite verbose curses that are not so widely known and which tend to add an air of almost sophistication to the cursee when one quotes Shakespeare.

Russian and German apparently are very good languages to swear in,

Folks,

I've just changed over computers to a new mac book and noticed that the "like" thumbs up icon is missing from a number of threads I have been part of for a while. If I open the forum on another computer the icon is still there, but not on the latest and greatest.

Any ideas?

Just put an order in for a new tripod. As the company didn't have a big social event this year they sent us all e-gift cards, which somewhat restricted which stores we could spend it in but what the heck.

I went for a cheap tripod with a ball head which was what I was really looking for, and a spare battery for the camera.

We discussed this at work, bearing in mind we are all safety engineers so our aim is to eliminate the risk wherever possible and implement whatever reasonably practicable controls we can. We don't take into account politics, feelings, budgets or timescales, someone else has to make that decision against our recommendations.

Our solution, every incoming flight from overseas lands at somewhere remote, an RAAF base out in the middle of nowhere preferably but Manus Island has a 7,000 odd foot runway.

The passengers are put up in on-base accomodation for 14 days, and are tested every three days. If after 14 days no-one has tested positive then the passengers are flown back to the mainland (or a major city) and allowed to travel to their destination.

Each batch of arrivals is kept separated and isolated from each other, so if one batch contains someone who has COVID it doesn't spread. Anyone found to be infected is treated on site, and the rest of the batch is given another 14 days quarantine until it can be proved they are not infectious.

Workable? Yes. Politically acceptable, No, not remotely. Unless the politicians have the will to do it and take the flak for it. Of course there will be a lot of claims of "human rights" etc, but it would keep the rest of the country infection free.

Whether this would be good for the country in the long run is another question, the longer we keep it out then the harder it is likely to hit if and when it does get here.

Nice! I did suggest Tunnocks Caramel Wafers a while ago but that was a little too localised. Jaffa cakes would be an alternative but they don't stack easily, so the question should be "milk chocolate or dark chocolate digestives"?

When I have some spare time over the holidays I'm going to do some DIY and make up a flash diffuser. So today I bought some foam floor tiles and a packet of opaque document wallets. I already have the plan courtesy of Alan Walls Photography
