    Doesn't work on Aussies, we just see supersized frozen Turkeys piled up in an open freezer, and ignore it!

    That or think, geesh, isn't Halloween enough?


    But we don't want to take this festive one on, since if we cooked turkeys on a hot day, and have the air con, on full, to compensate, we would have wide spread power blackouts.

    As it is Xmas day will probably be by candlelight?


    At least Vics, are better off than South Australians, those poor *******s, are up s***t creek with all of this nonsense.

      I opened this thread in anticipation of seeing instructions on how to set fire to Claude. Very disappointed.

      Sorry, I don't know how to roast an emu. Did you check to see if there's any videos for it on Youtube?

        No, but we prefer to just stand under wind turbines, with a bucket, (get no end of fleshly slaughtered birds that way).

          Emus get killed by wind turbines? I didn't know that...

          Shane; I know it's a joke. But I also know you think wind turbines actually kill birds.

          But birds fly far faster than a wind turbine blade. They can fly through a forest and miss every branch. They fly through a flock of birds, and they don't crash into each other.

          The "Wind turbines are bad because they kill birds" isn't the history of wind turbines.

          Now Kites, on the other hand........Wind turbines hate kites. So a flock of kites would be in real trouble.

            Geesh, l can't go on my slash and burn anywhere here, sniff, (just got my Frank Kern, Nordic hat, etc).

            But alas true, birds can break the sound barrier, so wind-turbines are no hindrance.

            Neither are jet engines, you just need an unladen swallow, UD40, the Mandela affect, and a time dilation crystal, (STD, Star Trek Discovery).

              I guess it just depends on the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow

                And whether or not it's a European or African swallow.

            A Kite is also the name of a large bird. Please clarify if you are talking about them or the human construction's that fly's on the end of a long piece of string.

              It was a dark time. I needed the money.

              Why in the world would you name a wild bird? They don't come when you call them anyway.

              Expecting a "staff" joke, weren't you?

              No, I am above such Riffle Piffle.

                If you think you can make things come by calling them, you obviously learned nothing at The Wooster Men's Bathhouse And Feather Boa Emporium.

                How you dredged that name up I'll never know. Here she is in a film with Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing, Probably one of the most boring films ever made.

    Yes, hate to get all serious, but l am not 100% sure Claude was running with a gag or being serious?



    Two minutes in an Eagle, which was flying around this monstrosity got clobbered.

    Lighting hit another and it fell down, and others catch alight, (all of that CO2).

    I won't post the solar panel ones, not pretty!

    Just because the odd bit of man made tech fails or kills the odd bird occasionally does not mean we should abandon some of our best hopes and ways at generating free, clean energy.

    Best hopes, not really, in a sick, oil targeted society like ours it probably is.

    Solar and wind cannot maintain base load power, l know batterys can back it up, but it is hideously expensive for a very small allotment of time, (1 trillion dollars for 2 hours) based on state electricity demands.

    It works better on a personal level, but it is still not the best solution.

    Enclosed, internal systems, where the core production method is not open to the weather, (wind turbines, attracts bugs, that reduce output and add to it bursting into flames, and high winds, and lighting strikes, etc).

    Solar is better, but it has its own issues, namely it works half the time, and if overcast, less than half the time.

    We should be pouring vast amounts into magnetic, vortex tech, but we won't or bury what works, since it threatens oil jobs, and stock prices.

    We could have an utopian society if we got off this oil bender, but as always the rich, can't let go, (so to speak).

    It is good in a way since it is forcing Victorians and SA'ens, to find ways around the charge 13% or more for elecricity each and every year, mainly for BS reasons.

    But we don't make cats, or more to the point produce acres of the stupid things.
