Thanks to David Thompson for the introduction. Follow the link to David’s page and you might make a joyous discovery of your own.

Meet Tim Klein, the man who took someone else’s discovery

Jigsaw puzzle companies tend to use the same cut patterns for multiple puzzles

and went full Doors Of Perception on it.

One sample is all you get. There’s more at the link.

I always thought that garage-size fireplace was the weirdest thing in the room, until…

Speaking of identifying…

I had to identify as a woman yesterday. But only for a couple of minutes. The men’s room was out of order.
Felt really weird putting the seat down afterwards.


A 69-year-old entrepreneur in the Netherlands wants to legally change his age to 49 so he can go back to work and meet more women on Tinder, according to his lawsuit

That is very entrepreneurial indeed. Until he meets an 89 year old woman who identifies as 21.

Australian Senators serve it up!

From The Caldron Pool :

“The Australian people have had a gutful of The Greens and their freaky agenda… They are a closed shop of misogynists, heterophobes and reverse bigots. They are the most disgraceful political party in the history of this country.”

Senator Cory Bernardi, leader of the Australian Conservatives.

National Party Senator Barry O’Sullivan was in equally fine form.

“They attacked me for my religious basis the other day… because I had the audacity to raise issues around late-term abortion… I am going to declare my gender today, as I can, to be a woman and then you’ll no longer be able to attack me.”

Peter Jackson has moved on from Hobbits and Preciousssses.

What’s he’s done with film from World War 1 goes beyond mere restoration.

Hoping this gets a cinema run.

Remembrance Day, Perth 2018: a field of knitted poppies.

From the Lost Perth page at Facebook:

Volunteers have turned the State War Memorial in Kings Park into a sea of red with 62000 hand knitted poppies ahead of Remembrance Day.

Each poppy is a tribute to a Digger who was killed in WWI, which effectively came to an end on November 11, 1918, when the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of bloody warfare.

The war claimed 62000 young Australian lives but the mental health and well being of many more was affected after the horror of the conflict.

The Poppy Ladies go beyond poppies, producing scarves and beanies for ADF troops serving abroad.

When the news strikes close to home. RIP, sir.

One of the victims in yesterdays terrorist attack in Melbourne was Sisto Malaspina, proprietor of Pellegrini’s at the top of Bourke Street.

I spent a lot of time in Pellegrini’s back in the 1980s, and I’ve called in there for coffee and lasagna at least once any time I’ve gone back east. Sisto was always there.

He was the neckerchief king of Melbourne. Like they say in the ad, he never left home without one.

“The happiest person you could imagine.”

Damn those troublemaking Presbyterians.

A man known to Australia’s intelligence services has been shot in Bourke Street Melbourne after demonstrating knife and bomb skills.  The police, much to the surprise of all, have admitted this could be a terrorist act.

Terrorism? In Melbourne? Naaaah. The government says it doesn’t happen!

Extreme multitasking?

A suspected drunk driver has been arrested after police spiked the tyres of his BMW seconds after he allegedly urinated out of his car from the driver’s seat during a pursuit through Adelaide’s north-eastern suburbs.

Help! Help! The fragile old lady has fallen!

I’m just waiting for the Trump Shoves Ginsberg stories to start.

And of course doomsayers abound. But the doomsaying industry has rather fallen in the public confidence over the last two years.

In breaking – sorry, start again… In other news, Maxine Waters demontrates that there’s a void where her self-awareness should be.

November 4:
It is obvious that the president of the United States of America is placing a target on my back and he keeps calling my name and lying about me in order to make the target work…All of us who are targeted are simply saying that the president of the United States is taking this country in the wrong direction, that it is dangerous, that it is divisive and he continues to dog whistle to his constituency out there.

But as recently as June this year:
Let’s make sure we show up wherever we have to show up and if you see anybody from that Cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd and you push back on them, and you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.

Which rather begs the question of who is targeting who. Or is it that targeting, like homophobia, is okay when some people do it?

And while we’re on the Kavanaugh affair, I’m nominating this as the funniest meme of 2018.

Since we’re on the racing shtick let’s have a second and a third.

Expect a global oversupply of cheesburgers. Finally, from Rino Swamp:
