    John, you post is a perfect example of why being PC or trying to be, to drum up support for a separate agenda is despicable.

    If the brick wall is rendered outside and plastered inside, You could brick it up yourself. Take your time one brick at the time. Make sure you line up the bricks and leave enough room for plaster and render. When it's all closed and set, call a plasterer that will do the inside plaster and will surely be able to patch up the sand and cement render outside. A couple of hours for him ... if he is very slow.

    I am sick of listening to Buryachicken, blaming people for "gathering" and talking and "risky behaviour" and the rest of the condescending, patronising, insulting talk down hot air she hisses out everyday. Yet not a word of the real reasons we had this two peak of infections: one, the Princess cruise fiasco, two, the flight attendant transportation fiasco. Three and most important, the vaccination fiasco, the constant changing of the misinformation parroted by ill prepared public...

    So Morrison spilled the beans. There are not enough vaccines. Lots of hot air but no vaccines, and the other states are sitting on theirs. Truly pathetic.

    The chief health officer of the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) has told residents not to talk to one another outside of the home amid a strict lockdown in Sydney. “Whilst it is human nature to engage in conversation with others, to be friendly, unfortunately, this is not the time to do that,” NSW Chief Health Officer Dr. Kerry Chant told reporters on July 20. “So even if you run into your next-door neighbour in the shopping centre … don’t start up a conversation. Now is the time...

    Is Hikoki the same as Hitachi? Oh yes, +Koki ... what chance is there to drive nails in hardwood? I had a few occasions I needed to do that and tried with an air nail gun that shoots like a bazooka and ... no luck. It drove the nail halfway and bounced or bent the nail. Maybe with a shorter steel nail or concreting nails?

    I mean 99.8 % infection FREE rate. THe only honest number to rate is percentage. If they do 100,000 test and find 100 cases, it is obvious that just by going upto 200,000 test, they will find 200 cases.What do we do then? Screw the doors shut? This morons don't have a clue and are battling it out one against the other. We should fire the lot

    This whole debacle is about blame and pretend action. The government is busy laying blame on people who "are in the community whilst infections", and at the same patronising and talking to us like disobedient kids. They missed the boat one year ago with pfizer and bought the cheapter AZ when the european started to suspend it. Parroted vagaries and nonsense about who "qualifies" for AZ, and even now with PF, you can noty walk in to get vaccinated ... no no no! you must first fill in...

    The objections to diesel engines are misdirected. It is not the engine, it is the fuel that is to blame. With H2 no CO2 from Hydrogen combustion, so that should appease all the scaremongering global warming alarmist, just water. Some NO and NO2 that can be minimized with old school catalytic convertors, no particulate emissions, way cheaper technology than hydrogen cells or battery/electric. Sure the requirements for high pressure and distribution have to be developed, no different from...

    You can use cardboard. collect some boxes from Bunnings, open them up and lay them on the ground lined up with a string. If you have old floorboards you can use them to screen the ground. There are dedicated ground line marking trolleys but they go for over $100 unless you can find a second hand one on ebay or marketplace.

    "There’s an underlying logic that’s been pushed out globally about why we have to take vaccine and how many of us have to take vaccine. It’s not actually supported by data. To my mind, that’s a problem. It’s gone all the way through this outbreak where key public health officials have felt comfortable substituting their opinion for evidence-based medicine. That always has to happen at the start of an outbreak because there’s no data. Somebody’s got to have expert opinion. We’re past that...

    Unsupported assumption ... If an assumption is defined as ... a thing that is accepted as true or as certain to happen, without proof ... Then an assumption in order to be so, needs not having proof that supports it's validity, like an hypothesis or theory. Therefore ... to say unsupported assumption is ... an oxymoron. :)
