blueshoes: Noooooooooo.... Also, Dan is currently on a pressconf talking about how "there's no need for anyone to be stocking up on months of groceries, the grocery stores will stay open"
Aug 3, 2020 15:37:17 GMT 10
blueshoes: Also, apparently there's going to be a permit system coming soon so people can be not harrassed by cops for going to work etc.... hmm
Aug 3, 2020 16:28:53 GMT 10
blueshoes: Dan andrews mentioned permits at about an hour in to today's press conference
Aug 3, 2020 16:34:44 GMT 10
kelabar: Hmm, a politician says no need buy months of groceries. Translation: buy a heap of groceries because you are going to need them. Or maybe they are telling the truth...nah, that'll never happen!
Aug 3, 2020 22:11:50 GMT 10
SA Hunter: kelabar - in other words "I've got nothing at home, so I need to get to the supermarket before anyone else does'. Yeah, when a politician says the sky is blue, chances are it's not. Believe your gut before a Politician.

kelabar: I heard a story about one of the Aus agriculture ministers or politicians basing every decision about Aus agriculture on how it would increase the profits on their farm! Not sure if it is true, but sounds about right!

It constantly amazes me. I live a country at risk of earthquake and the number of people who have taken no precautions amazes me. I was involved in the initial response to both Christchurch earthquakes and was struck by the complete lack of preparedness. Now 8 years later and its exactly the same..... what the fu#k - even having lived through it and the level of preparedness is low.
Have convinced several work colleagues they need to prep to 7-10 days instead of the recommended 3 and that's feels like a major accomplishment. Comes back to the Ant and the Grasshopper fable. Short term disaster and I can easily and willingly support friends and neighbours - but the big one and all bets are off. Hard balance to strike with maintaining community and longevity.
Funny you say that, I recently concluded that we should add an old (carby) suzuki sierra to our collection and I'd teach my partner how to rebuild an engine in the process.
Oh and yeah, more AP70N would be nice except cant get it where I shop.
The Sierra is great, very basic but that's why it's so robust, the engine seems to be one of the last things to break in the car. I have the newer 2011 Jimny, great little thing that eats many large 4wd for breakfast. Terrible car to drive on highway especially when condition is windy or wet (in 2wd mode that is) and no comfort features, I love it. I can get AP70n but no AS30 here. AS30 is my go to powder because it's fast burning so good for low pressure loads for competitions. AP50 does work for me as a allrounder and you can sub it with AS50 if no stock.
A few years back I did 3 months rail construction in the Pilbara and a cyclone was forecast to come into the region. One guy later wrote into the local newspaper complaining that all the bread was sold out two hours prior to landfall. He simply expects all the shop keepers to be there till the cyclone comes in and keep baking bread as if they have nothing better to do.
There are no words to describe the mentality of these guys.
Prepared to most these days is having uber eats and deliver roo on speed dial! Coles and woolies delivering the dunny paper and bath cleaner, the chinese to make there clothes and plastic toys, the ses, police and army cleaning up after shtf and their insurance to cover everything else!

So, you live in a "hot" cyclone zone,and no one is prepared at all? Are people really that stupid??? The answer to your question is YES.
Up here it is a blizzard.... Like the one that hit the east coast a short while ago.. They get some sort of down wind of the Great Lakes affect snow storm every year.... The four big things the stupid ones call emergency for are bread, milk, baby formula, diapers...
A new one I heard said.... Duct tape won't fix stupid... But it will make it quiet down...
