    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Notice there is no report in our Media?

    Conspiracy or merely slack-arsed journalists?

    Further to above.

    A number of Media Outlets have a policy of not publishing anything that might contradict the Editors opinion on the matter.

    For Instance "Stuff" have a section Titled "Quick Save the Planet" and are quite clear that anything contrary to the Editors beliefs will not be published.

    Here's a copy of what I've saved.

    The editorial continued:

    This project accepts a statement that shouldn't be controversial but somehow still is: climate change is real and caused by human activity.

    Mature adults can disagree about the impact of climate change and how we should react. We'll feature a wide range of views as part of this project, but we won't include climate change "scepticism". Including denialism wouldn't be "balanced"; it'd be a dangerous waste of time. The experts have debunked denialism, so now we'll move on.


    The Guardian is another that won't tolerate debate.

    I'm sure that reporting both sides of a story is not in their best interest.

    Batteries meh....

    In Stuff today a Mosgiel woman was complaining her $98000 car had to be driven to Ch/ch for repairs, being the nearest tesla fixit place.

    Speaking of batteries my Warehouse car battery started to rr rr a bit in mornings so I bought a new one yesterday.
    Rather than wait for jumpstarting hassles.

    Supercheap were $209 and $15 to put it in. I said OK and then the drama started, checklists and plugging in of some gadget to 12v then refusing cause it has an immobiliser. (Why it mattered who knows, told them it's no big deal, have DIYed it before)


    So I went down to Repco. $170 and he carried it out and put it in for nothing, 5 mins no hassles. And took my old one for me.
    Which was nice, saved me having to dispose of old one/
