milspec: I wonder if the 2030 Net zero Carbon push will be our justification to go nuclear power generation in Australia?

Tri-Polar: Apparently a tornado ripped through here last night. Nothing like being prepared. Had to get the tank and chainsaw out so wife could go to work. New things for the list. Better generator and ATS.

10hr flight home from Hawaii I read a non fiction survival book called Savage Jungle, by Iain Finlay. It recounts the true story of Arthur Shephard's 3.5 year survival in the Malayan jungle in WW2. Read this book several times before. A great account of surviving in a harsh environment whilst trying to avoid hostile forces. No gear junkies here, just real life survival with the barest of equipment.
Got this out of the library following the above description, and having just finished it I definitely recommend it. Well written and an amazing story. Interesting how most of the direct threats he faced after the first month or so were disease related rather than resulting from engagement with the enemy. Not just malaria, which is obviously bad enough, but also the less directly serious diseases like tinea and beri beri which limited his mobility and hence made life more dangerous.
Also a good reminder about the value of making alliances. And, it must be said, the importance of luck (several of his comrades did all the right things but didn't make it to August 1945).
