It’s a certain kind of geek that enjoys typography at that level. Some of us might enjoy it at the level of “oh, that looks nice”, but Frere Jones’ article goes deep into the how of “oh that looks nice”.

Yeah That'll Work Out

Obama to arm Ukraine to defend against Russia.

Yeah that’s gonna help. It could actually end up being a major disaster. It’s not like the US has a good track record on resolving conflicts or ending conflicts smoothly in the last bunch of decades or so.

It's Still Tony Abbott

Aparently it’s still Tony Abbott

Just a few minutes ago, I saw the news that the LNP leadership spill was defeated 61 to 39.

I’m surprised. It’s not what I predicted. However, I don’t think this will be the last of it. I’m sure this will come up again before the next federal election.

The news article finsihes with:

But even some of the Prime Minister’s most ardent supporters now believe he is mortally wounded and cannot survive the year.

The three major problems this world faces:

  • Religion
  • Soccer Fans

So, Who's it Gonna Be?

I predict tomorrow morning we will have a new Prime Minister. LNP and Tony Abbott got voted in because Labor were a disfunctional bunch of megalomaniacs (K Rudd, etc). Tony Abbott doesn’t have the class of past Prime Ministers. Not that we’ve seen any class in recent years – the last Prime Minister to be cut from any kinds of classy cloth was Little Johnny Howard.

There’s only one person in contemporary Australian politics who I think stands out as being of the material to be a great Prime Minister. A Prime Minister of the class or calibre of Paul Keating, Bob Hawke, Malcolm Fraser, Gough Whitlam, Harold Holt, Robert Menzies, John Curtin.

He will, tomorrow, be Australia’s new Prime Minister.

So, who’s it gonna be?

Malcolm Turnbull.

Heaven Smells of Chickens

Pope Francis decrees that all animals go to heaven.

Wow, Heaven would seriously smell of chickens.

Just the broiler hen industry alone accounts for in the order of 100 billion hens per year worldwide. So if you add a few years together you quickly realise that in heaven there are trillions and trillions of chickens already, and we add more than a 100 billion each year.

Which makes you wonder, what do they eat up there? KFC, chicken burgers? It would make sense.

My Job

It’s my job between now and polling day to remind the Australian people just what a hopeless, unreliable, untrustworthy, dishonest, deceptive Government this has been. It just doesn’t get democracy.

– Tony Abbott. Interviewed by Alan Jones, Radio 2GB, Sydney, 21 July 2010
