Long enough I hope to write on a piece of paper "I don't believe carbon dioxide is my problem, Davo. Gimme oxyge...." (dies)

Davoh said...

That's also my understanding, Vincent. Oddly enough CO2 also helps to suppress hiccups and "hyperventilation". 'Tis a longish discussion, i guess, and not one that i want to enter into, at length, at this point. Was listening to one of Monkton's 'defences' (arguments?) about how carbon dioxide was "good for the economy" (and trees). True, buuuut ....

.. and if yer not ofay with local politics and jargon , Tony Rabbit is still repeating the ad infinitum mantra "toxic tax".

Davoh said...

.. would, frankly, like to find out who his 'scriptwriter' was; place a louis vuitton (Coles, Woolworths) plastic bag over their head .. hold it gently, but tightly, around their neck; coo in their ear - "Calm down, don't struggle; it's good for the economy".

Nah! You fink I'm simple... you try it first.

Bianchii said...

Really nice blog, interesting posts !
It would be nice if you'll visit my blog sometimes :)

Have a nice day :)

Hello Bianchii .. was initially suspicious that your comment was some sort of "spam", and almost deleted it. However, your 'blog' looks genuine, but have no idea why such a young person in Poland should be interested in what an 'elder' Australian writes.

I see where you are interested in the "USA". i might be biassed, but methinks you'd be better off in Australia ... heh.

"try it first"? Vestie, can remember 'free diving' some years ago when i had the yacht, and down about 30 feet underwater looking for a bracelet dropped overboard by the girlfriend of a friend (girlfriend of friend was married to someone else, and the bracelet was gift from husband).

Needless to say that the buildup of CO2 in the lungs only allowed me 3 minutes per dive. bracelet was never found, and have no information about what happened re the rest of the story (except that relationship between friend and female was suddenly non-existing).

Bianchii is spamming you.

Please visit my blog.

I am really nice.

I will say nice things to you if you visit my blog.

You know I love you...

John Myste said...

Gerry, you crack me up! I read Bianchi's comments on other blogs also. They were identical.

If he ever posts on my blog, I will delete the comment. I don't allow anonymous postings and I try not to allow spam.

John Myste said...

Davo,

Can you please equip my bag with oxygen, cashews and a laptop?

I would say more, but you have expressed how comments you view as pointless annoy you and I would hate to cross that line.

It is a sinister tax promoted by fear.
The trillions gathered by taxation, may be used to promote and subsidise the expansion of the solar panel industry and assist penniless persons like us. I shall exclude Gerry who is filthy rich.

Davoh said...

J. Mystie .. OK, cashews and laptop; no problem .. oops, Was just about to write .. 'do mind if i paint it yellow, as well?' but that might be misunderstood as it was intended as a wry reference to the Beatles song, and not in any way a reference to anyone's courage. Ah, the problems of wry 'quips'.

John, comments do not 'annoy me', i find great enjoyment from them, but since there is no 'camera' to reflect my big grins or, indeed, 'tongue in cheek' - anything that i write may well be viewed with extreme suspicion.

Vestie understands .. but he's a Brit.

Davoh said...

(and a correction. was kidding a bit about being able to hold my breath underwater. More like 30-40 seconds .. but aussies tend to, um, exaggerate, a bit. there seems, also, to be a marked difference between American - and/or Brit and Aussie sense of humour. Self thinks that the Americans take themselves far too seriously).
(dunno where Gerry sits, if he has a sense of humour, am still looking for it).

Which reminds me .. am putting together a syndicate to purchase a magnicent bridge. Not only of valuable historical and aesthetic value, and a continuing reliable source of income ... shares are relatively cheap, only $US1,000-00 per unit.

Wanna buy in?

John Myste said...

Am very interested in Bridge. Have found a method to acquire alternative currency, which is now deemed legal tender for all debts public and private. In order to obtain said currency, must purchase board game that includes it. We call it Parker Brother's Monopoly.

Will require a loan from you of roughly 20.00 U.S. dollars (or 5000.00 Australian Dollars), which will be repaid, along with the bridge fees, in this new currency.

Email me and I will send you my address where your check may be sent. I don’t want to post it in the comments section, because some unscrupulous hack may use it for nefarious purposes.

J. All transactions are possible. Will have to check, perhaps send a cheque; arrange something with bankers in Nigeria.
