    This might be of interest - national screening programme in Australia http://www.cancer.org.au/about-cancer/early-detection/screening-programs/bowel-cancer-screening/
  3. Can I Nominate a Minnesota Senator?

    Not Minnesota "Prat of the Year" contest at https://thepointman.wordpress.com/ Australia's Prime Minister is ahead! Well ahead of Hillary. Gives us a head start in the game of "Ours are worse than yours"
  4. Pasquali tractor

    There are a few other brands of similar configuration out of Italy. Valpadana is one.
  5. Sleeper Cars.

    One from New Zealand. Ford UK Zephyr Mark 3 was a 2.6 litre straight 6 4-door of about 100 hp. There was room to replace that with Corvette running gear. Which turned it into an E-type worrier.
  6. Deer strike back

    They don't fold - only back on the bonnet area in extreme hits. They don't add a lot to the already general inconvenience. A slight positive is the extra shelf space you get for tools. A large positive is that usually the car is drivable, though I have had to use a snig chain and a signpost to get the end of the bar back out of the wheel from a hit on the extreme end. And we have to go to all this trouble because all that you've been fed about the imminent extinction of the large kangaroo species is definitely fake news. Some years ago these bars had to be made to "crumple for pedestrian protection". A vehicle we got had a nice alloy bar connected to the vehicle by not much better than tinfoil. Until the first roo damage repair. Even the insurance companies rebelled on that requirement.
  7. National anthem protests

  11. I Wish Life Wasn't So Rough

    Seen some spectacular results from seeding coffee room ashtrays with shotgun powder. It didn't look like ash on its own but camouflaged well in the ash.

  13. Anyone see the new Tesla Semi

    " Tesla's recently unveiled electric truck will require the equivalent power used by up to 4,000 homes to recharge, says Energy Live News. That's according to new analysis by an energy consultancy, which calculated it based on the range and charge time for the megacharger." http://www.smalldeadanimals.com/2017/12/we-dont-need-no-665.html and link
