I love the NT News

News Story

Not very news story

Which one did the NT news decide to run with as their cover story?

Well it wouldn't be a historic court victory for traditional land owners would it.

No, man caught speeding and wanking at the same time, speed wanking if you will.

Bravo NT News, obviously there weren't any crocodile attack stories doing the rounds on the day, otherwise the lead story may have been bumped to second billing.

The only thing the story was lacking was a crocodile. Man caught wanking a crocodile while travelling at 150km/h in a beaten up old Land Rover- that's a lead story.

Ah well

"A TERRITORY man filmed himself speeding at 150km/h while masturbating at the wheel of his drug-laden car, a court heard."

Good stuff

It's so easy to

Sleeping between dreams.

Missed it by that Much


I don't know what Cadel has to do to win the Tour.

He could probably start with a team 100% committed to riding their guts out for him.

Maybe he doesn't inspire that sort of committment from his teammates?

Well if he doesn't, somebody in the team should be reading the riot act and making sure they ride themselves inside out to get him in the yellow on the Champs Elysee.

He has twice proven he's good enough to be up there.

I guess there is always next year!

Carn Cadel

Please please please
let me
get what I want
Lord knows it would be the first time.

Now grab that yellow jersey Cadel...

or next time I see you riding up Kinglake I'm going to chase you down and step on your dog.


consider yourself warned.

Onwards to victory, and a way into the hearts and mind of our nations largely ignorant sporting "experts".

For the last three weeks, all I've heard at work is "do you think he can do it".

To wit I have answered resoundingly "yes".

Now, can you please win it so I look like I know what I'm talking about.


Losing will mean office humiliation for me.

I have faith in you digger.

Saunier's secret!

Ah, you can't go past this article in Velonews for pure, unadulterated irony.

"Saunier's Secret"

I'm sure Mavic's all new lightweight rims helped a lot, but even Ricco could tell you the EPO helped a hell of a lot more.



Standing on lands edge,
staring at the deep green sea.
She falls and exhales.

What will people vote for these days

A concerning article from Gary Younge in the Guardian today regarding the rise of the BNP in the UK.

I think it touches on an interesting point: Will voters in Western democracies actually vote for a big idea or principal anymore?

"Just as there is more to racism in Britain than the BNP, the BNP's rise tells us more about Britain than just racism. It is a canary in the mine - an early warning system signalling the complacency of our political culture in which our political class has been complicit. Trapped in a hopeless spiral of negativity, people will vote against anything - immigration, the Tories, Ken Livingstone, Boris Johnson, Scottish nationalism, Gordon Brown or Europe, to name a few. But it seems a long time since large numbers of people voted for anything."

I think the obvious testing point for this hypothesis is climate change. Will people actually vote to address climate change, or will they complacently let time slip away.

I think it's also interesting from an Australian perspective in that the same people who gave John Howard a kick at the last election are lining up to give Rudd a kick at the moment.

Poo washes up at Bell's Beach

One can't help but feel that the Herald Sun missed out on an amusing byline in todays paper.

And, no, it wasn't an environmental story.

Ah to be famous, every embarassing thing that ever happens to you finds its way into the newspaper.

What a joy to behold
