  • I'm not a fan of over-regulation, but there should be a law against store staff talking over good songs on the P.A. "Billie Jean" especially #
  • @trentg85 That's exactly what 'Frog' from Songland told John Kerr on Sunday morning. I was never a fan, but you're right, she is worse now. in reply to trentg85 #
  • One can only assume that the Martians will take us inflicting Will I Am on them as an act of war. Prepare for Martian invasion! #

  • @TripleM_NRL It's very kind of you to offer @2GB873 shared rights to Sunday night's game. I hope the favour is repaid in rights negotiations #
  • @TripleM_NRL Among other things, it would be great to have you guys calling the other Friday night, Saturday night and Sunday arvo games. #
  • @jeffreys_mike I could say the same about Tony Jones putting himself on air. in reply to jeffreys_mike #
  • Dear @Radio2UE Fairfax Pre-Feed News. The carbon tax is not a price on pollution, but rather carbon dioxide. And "approvement" is not a word #

  • @TripleM_NRL Keep a mobile phone on standby. Sound quality is terrible, but it fills these tech gaps nicely. #

  • @TheNTNews In Canberra too. Once all the evidence is shredded, @JuliarDullard will make a statement denying responsibility for NT result. in reply to TheNTNews #
  • They like broken promises in Heffron. RT @theheraldsun: Labor easily wins Heffron NSW by-election #
  • Heffron voters duped by Kristina Keneally's promise to serve her electorate, still vote for her party after she flees. Extraordinary… #
  • Agreed! RT @timwilsoncomau If you haven't watched Boss with Kelsey Grammar, you are missing out, well worth the effort: #
  • Congratulations to Terry Mills and the Country Liberal Party for bringing the Northern Territory in to the conservative fold. #
  • @coffeyn Absolutely. This whole not-running-a-candidate thing while Labor are on the nose is downright silly. in reply to coffeyn #
  • RIP astronaut and lunar explorer Neil Armstrong. He was 82. (it's what my business card would say if I was him) #
  • Interesting article from @WSJ on the development of the human brain between the ages of 18 and 28 #
  • David Brooks is jealous RT @mirandadevine NYT's David Brooks criticises Paul Ryan for being "intellectually coherent" #
  • @CNXTim It looks like all of the ballot papers submitted at polling places have been counted, but not postal/absent votes. Bess is leading. in reply to CNXTim #

  • Sounds like @Radio2UE have introduced a new news intro. Sounds a bit like an air raid siren starting up with a remix of the late 90s intro #
  • Mass shooting outside Empire State Building. Gunman is dead. I'm starting to wonder if the recent spate of shootings is coordinated. #
  • I hope I'm way off the mark, but I do find myself wondering if the recent shootings are coordinated to make gun control an election topic. #
  • @7netsport Someone tell Pres there's two 7 bugs up on Sydney 7mate…there has been for some time. #
  • Toby has sent me some spam. Apparently he can help with my "fridge maget project". I think I'll hesitate to contact him. #
  • If we can make fake meat out of vegetables, then we should be able to make fake vegetables out of meat. #
  • Oh goody! More spam. This time for sanitary moulds and toilet seat covers. #
  • Fire alarm at Win Stadium while Dragons V Warriors. Alarm set off by Andrew Moore and Steve Roach whose commentary is on fire on @2GB873 #
  • Early indications show a landslide conservative victory in the Northern Territory. ABC computer: CLP currently lead 13-4. 15 needed to win. #
  • Typo in previous tweet. You actually only need 13 seats to win the NT election, not 15. On that note, CLP now projected to win at least 14. #
  • @coffeyn indeed. It certainly is closer now. Still looking good though. in reply to coffeyn #
  • Good to see Bess Price win a seat in the NT election. Her election surely says something about Labor's mishandling of the NT Intervention. #
  • Um, @abcmarkscott Why does our pro-diversity govt broadcaster not have a single Aboriginal person hosting the NT election coverage? #ntvotes #

  • $25M in refunds for "misleading" Ab Circle Pro. If you're dumb enough to believe this crap, you don't deserve a refund #
  • On a Woolworths staff shirt: "Self Serve – ask us how". Ummm, if I have to ask, then it's not really self service. #
  • Why is it that every time I deal with an @actgovernment shopfront, my urge to start fires returns? Yes PS people, report my "threat"! Go on! #
  • @coffeyn that's where I was actually. Got it sorted in the end, but still a frustrating experience. They are nicer in Woden though. in reply to coffeyn #
  • @coffeyn Paperwork, and conflicting information. in reply to coffeyn #

  • Well Ecuador, we're not friends any more. Although if you ensure that I never hear of Julian Assange again, I'll reconsider. #
  • @mtk777 No, I'm not on Big Brother (de ja vu, I remember saying that years ago), but there is someone in there who looks vaguely like me. in reply to mtk777 #
  • Chief Turnip Stanhope is going to run Christmas Island. I can't work out whether there will be more boat people or public artworks… #
  • RT @Barnaby_Joyce Debt up by $2 billion for week, now $241 billion. I await the stream of Labor staff tweeters saying this is a good outcome #
  • @Barnaby_Joyce For them, it is. More foreign debt = more international fiats to obey = more administrators needed = more post-politics jobs. in reply to Barnaby_Joyce #

  • @2cc, Jock's Journal reports that Fairfax are sending you 3AW overnights instead of 2UE overnights for two weeks starting Monday. True? #
  • That means I make 25%+ below average for this town. Overpaid public servants RT @jessicaconway1: The average wage in Canberra is $83,330. #
  • @VentraIP I've been meaning to ask. As a former employee, am I even eligible to enter your competitions? in reply to VentraIP #
  • RT @GL3NN0 It's impossible for Australia to reach 5% target by 2020. We'd need to stop burning coal now & build 2750 industrial solar plants #
  • @GL3NN0 And the carbon dioxide emissions from building that many solar plants would exceed the 5% target anyway. in reply to GL3NN0 #

  • It must be "national walk in the middle of the road day". There's a footpath one metre to your left, use it, or get run over! #
  • Went to bed at 3pm yesterday. Up at 10:30pm for work. Worked all night. Spent today on photography projects. Dinner now. Bed 7pm-ish. Tired! #

  • Clear Channel have bought WOR-AM New York. That makes it much more likely that Cumulus will replace Rush/Hannity with Huckabee/etc on WABC. #

  • Good, detailed article from @WSJ about Paul Ryan and the likely effects of his position as Vice Presidential candidate. #
  • The best way I can sum up my thoughts on Paul Ryan as Romney's running mate is that this has restored my confidence that Obama can be beaten #
  • @DavidLimbaugh Your brother does a good impersonation of Andrea Mitchell. Her journalistic ineptitude aside, her grating voice is torture. in reply to DavidLimbaugh #
