It’s Not Every Day An Australian Senator Threatens To Literally Finger The Prime Minister


“I threatened Tony Abbott to shirtfront him about this issue… I’m so determined to give these people a voice… I am prepared to go and squirrel grip, the prime minister,” said Lazarus, according to The Australian.

“If that doesn’t work I’ve got other things up my sleeves such as the grapple tackle, the chicken wing and even the crusher tackle. If that doesn’t work I’m prepared to use the Hopoate tackles.”

You know the cameraman was setting up our prime minister. The others are pretty good, too.

That's cool. I think it is great that sports are becoming more international. There is a down-side though - big news here when an Australian baseball player was killed in Oklahoma.

Basketball is a minor sport here but growing; Aussies will take part in practically any sport. My little suburb even has a baseball team.

We are also trying to recruit US basketball players for Australian Rules Football. Big strong blokes with good hands make good ruckmen. And the new generation who can run fast as well are changing the sport.

I heard that no human is ever more than 6 feet away from a spider.....ever!  Don't know if that is true or not, heard it on an episode of Law and Order SVU.{#Lol}

My ex gf flew a goshawk there. I'm sure she did it legally because she a professional animal trainer and wouldn't jeopardize her career. She must have had a special license. I'm sure the wildlife organizations are allowed to fly them during rehab, etc. I think the guy she was with then worked for a zoo or something. 

 
I saw a demo at a wildlife centre in Alice Springs (the Palm Springs of Australia?) so I'm sure there are options for that. I didn't think you could hunt though.

I had to look up Lake Eyre, it's a salt flat like Bonneville... I know Bonneville area has the same sort of unforgiving muck under the hard crust.

But yeah the wings. Seems like they would have thought of that, or hung it backwards or something... 

 
Lake Eyre last filled in 2011 so I can imagine it was still wet underneath. Apparently birds flock in from hundreds of miles away to breed when it has water.

There is a Lake Eyre Yacht Club: At this stage there is about a 30% chance of a regatta in 2015.  Even if there is a wind and with the shallow bottom, they apparently don't get much in the way of waves because the salinity makes the water pretty viscous.
