    Yeah there were a lot of Serbs and Croats who came out to Australia in similar circumstances after WW2. My dad arrived in 1949 (I think), and worked as a labourer laying railway track in WA, then as a professional rabbit shooter. I'm not sure when he moved to Melbourne, but my mum and older sisters didn't arrive in Oz until 1956.

    You fullas have had those fuckwit Canadians spouting their racist/eugenic bollocks in Oz recently. They tried in NZ as well, but both the venues they booked pulled the pin on them so they cried free speech bullshit and managed to get one interview on TV while here. Fuck off!

    Oh, I did this about 11 weeks ago, a car pulled out on me and I munted the tail light with my hand, which didn't do much good for my hand either. Comminuted compound matacarpal fracture, now plated back together. I've been riding on Zwift and only just got out in the last two weeks on my MTB again.

    Yeah that looks painful. You win.
    I've tended to use my feet against cars when the need has arisen where possible, but must admit my right fist has come into play against a cab window or fender or two.

    I had no idea, but it wasn't that long ago that the Canadians had a state sponsored eugenics program..https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compulsory_sterilization_in_Canada Australia attempted it by stealing black kids. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_eugenics#Australia

    Oh and thanks for typing that. It was actually a big chunk of my thinking while I was ranting, not that you’d know from any of the shit I actually typed.
    I fucking love youse Tanners. We’ve got each other’s backs.
    Best of luck with the healing Vette.
    I’m back at work again this week. Not fun but truly good for the mindset.

    Here we go again. Dirty's in town again. I'm not in my best form. Last time he was in town Slobodan moved in in the middle of the visit and it took months to convince both him and me that a household which I ostensibly am responsible for can't live like that day to day.
    And it's already Defcon 4 in one evening again.
    Wish me luck.

    If I were catholic I would say a rosary for your liver. As it is, I will toast your (hopefully) good health with a pilsener
