"A male crew member on the 2014 tour of the Rocky Horror Show has told police that the show's star, Craig McLachlan, indecently assaulted him."


Every day it seems that McLachlan sinks deeper into the muck!

Looks like Trump has learned quickly to be part of the Washington DC swamp ... "It's purely a state matter."

How ridiculous, the ABC is now resorting to tabloid journalism.  How many electric cars are currently on Australian roads?  Very few, I imagine.  Fossil fuels are still used largely to provide the energy to charge the batteries of these vehicles.  Governments tax the profits of these energy providers, it's just a matter of using some of those taxes to raise government revenue to maintain the roads.

Yes, it was overblown , especially in the light of this:-

"Dolores O'Riordan: Cranberries lead singer dies suddenly in London at 46"


46 is far too young.

I assume that there will be a coroner’s inquiry.

So, it is dangerous to suppress a Sneeze.

What about Farts?  :roll:

“White House doctor Ronny Jackson says he's got "absolutely no concerns" about Donald Trump's cognitive ability.”


An I.T. person would tell you that the hardware is OK but the software is corrupted !

Yes, it is dangerous. Repeated suppression of farts can cause diverticula (pouches of gas) to form in the wall of the colon.  This can lead to diverticulitis, a painful and dangerous condition that is due to bacterial infection of a diverticulum (similar to an infection of the appendix).  It can happen at any age, but is more common as one gets older.

The hardware needs more memory and a new processor.

An empathy co-processor might help as well.

US Senator Jeff Flake compares President's attacks on media to Stalin.


Stalin ? 

More like Italian dictator Benito Mussolini if you ask me.   :|
