    I'm not dead yet- honest

    Not Dead Yet: News Site Mistakenly Runs Dozens of V.I.P. Obituaries

    Queen Elizabeth II, Pelé and Clint Eastwood were among about 100 celebrities briefly reported as dead online by French public radio. The station blamed a website upgrade. Link

    Parking- Welcome sign taken a bit to literally

    Perth wharf hit.jpg
    "In 1986, HMAS Perth visited Hobart as part of celebrations for the 75th anniversary of the Australian navy's foundation. On arriving in Hobart, the destroyer accidentally rammed a wharf damaging her bow and the two-storey CH Smith chandlers building, while narrowly missing a "Welcome" sign"

    Life is all about perspective. Two lads on the wharf on the other side of this picture were rolling around laughing at this. All the Crew and Officers on Perth looked far more serious. The Captain may have spent the rest of his career safely on a shore base

    Chatting with a mate about this yesterday. We had been Northern Hemisphere each winter for a few years. Hobart even in Spring in Summer uniform with Snow on Mt Wellington had some knocking knees as we sailed up to Hobart

    I am making money from a Kiwi company selling a cleaning product. Shhh don't tell every one.

    The Coronavirus Is Airborne Indoors. Why Are We Still Scrubbing Surfaces?

    Scientists who initially warned about contaminated surfaces now say that the virus spreads primarily through inhaled droplets, and that there is little to no evidence that deep cleaning mitigates the threat indoors. Link

    Wash your hands still gents

    Well in the Adelaide, outbreak the disease was apparently picked up from a Hard Surface. Exhaled droplets & or by physical contact landed on the surface & carried further. Great believer in washing hands & is the first thing we do as soon as we enter the house. Then I will scratch my arse & if necessary pick my nose.


    I hear some people even remove their clothes & shove them in the Washing Machine.

    All those Ratings on the fo'c'sle appear to be blaming each other "It was your fault Bluey" "Nahh **** off, Smiler it wasn't me I wasn't here" "I heard Chiefy was told about the faulty quadrant but wanted to wait until we got back to GI"
    etc etc etc.

    Just because the guy on the Wharf yelled "Come In Number 38 your time is up" he didn't really expect it to come in that quick.


    Not one of Australia's finest in action was it?

    International studies have proven that trying to fit into modern washing machines with your clothes ON can be detrimental to your health.

    If you hide it they will come

    When officials in Utah on Monday revealed they had found a shimmering, metal structure deep in the Red Rock desert, they refused to say exactly where. It took just 48 hours for the first person to get there.

    The Phantom won't be too happy with someone putting a patch over one of the Skull Cave's eyes, in the right, background.
    He who takes offense when offense was not intended is a fool, yet he who takes offense when offense is intended is an even greater fool for he has succumbed to the will of his adversary.
