What's Mercury got to do with vaccines?
Australia has some really old rocks alright. My favourite is this http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/E... Named after some hills in South Australia. Some weird animals there. (If they are even animals. Or plants. Both?).
The alternatives were land, or coastal waters, as the comment below. Seals and turtles among other mostly marine animals lay eggs or give birth on land, so it may have been possible for Mosasaurs. Except that these researchers are saying that it wasn't.
What I did when I was in a similar, (not exactly the same), position, was tell the boss "sure, no problem" then tell the replacement guy either nothing, or bullshit, then when the boss wanted to know why he couldn't do the job yet, I would say "I've already shown him how to do that". By the time they figured it out my notice was up and I left. It really helped that the replacement was Indian and really poorly educated. He claimed to speak three languages as well as English, (which was probably true), but if his other language skills were as poor as his English it's a wonder he could communicate with anyone at all. He was hired specifically to do my job, but there was no indication he had any experience at all. I think he lasted about 2 weeks after I left.
I stopped reading the stupid article when the third paragraph quoted F A Hayek, a fucking idiot economist, as if he ever had anything useful to say about anything. Obvious bullshit propaganda.
That is all very interesting, and no doubt true, but as Top Gear runs on BBC which does not accept advertising, and the other channels in the UK are all commercial channels, he will not be free to slag off the various cars they drive, because the advertisers will get upset. That removes about half the fun of the show, and is one of the major weaknesses of the Top Gear US and Top Gear Australia shows I've seen.
Australia has a couple of big media companies that dominate the media landscape, just as most Western economies do. Those media companies and the two big political parties make use of each, once again just like most western countries. ChunderDownunder has the right idea, but Rupert and the rest won't let the Greens, (or any other disrupters) get any power.
That's a good post, well thought out, and well put too. I think you're missing an important point here though, and that is that we are talking about power and money here, and as soon as the two incumbents see either of those put at risk the rules will change pretty damn quick. The two party system is really a one party system.
"Pounded by the Biker Rainbow Come to Life...first time gay paranormal m/m taboo" by "Max Wood". Has to be the single greatest book title ever. Ever. Shakespeare ought to be ashamed he never thought of it.
I wish I had mod points. This name is both descriptive and true.
Will Microsoft Spartan go down well in the Athenian market though?
I can't believe Nintendo is still going. I thought they went bankrupt years ago. Clueless idiots.
Well, you Americans will insist on having a Government run by family dynasties.
Jesus of Nazareth was a black jew.
I'm not convinced Jesus of Nazareth existed at all.
I wear a Citizen Quartz watch which cost me about $NZ100 in about 2006. It is a nice watch, it keeps pretty accurate time and shows the day and date. When I bought it there were lots of other watches for sale. I could have spend $20 or $8,000, but around $100 seemed the appropriate price based on my income and the quality on offer. When the time comes for me to replace my watch, I will need to consider whether a connection to my smartphone is something I need, so I will consider whatever smartwatches are available when that time comes. However $100 or so is really the most I would be prepared to spend, so the various Samsung watches I see around ($300 - $400) and now this Apple watch ($350 US which will wind up being NZ$800 or so) are just too expensive. I suspect I am reasonably typical among the watch wearing public too, based on how few of these items seem to sell.
