This is probably the best (and only?) thing Craig Thompson has managed to do to protect his former party:

Tony Abbott will be bringing his bike to the chamber from now on.

Malicious Mac malware monster movie

Digg this

By William PJ Kulich.

It's vicious.

It doesn't need your password.

It's written in its own programming language.

And best of all, it's coming to a Mac near you!

Yes, Java and Apple have piled their buckets of shit together and created a breeding environment so fertile that 600,000 computers have already been infected by the Duqu trojan.

If you're one of those terribly misguided people hipsters with a Mac, here's a guide on how to to find out if you're infected and how to fix things if you are:

Oh, and did I mention that Windows 8 has built-in antivirus?

Yep, in the PC world nothing can go wrong!

Nothing can possi-bly go wrong.

Oh yeah, don’t forget to check out my new(ish… kinda) gig at The Warragul Citizen:

No. This blog is NOT only about news and politics anymore. Stop asking and visit

I have an awesome friend called Karrin.

Karrin is the proud mother (totally not adoptive) of an awesome cat called Nala.

The human race could learn a lot from Nala; she has a love for everything, no matter what it is.

Want proof? Here it is, straight from Karrin’s camera:

Such is Nala’s love for all things, she will hug a cactus to prove we must feel the same way about the world.

For the cactus’ future.

For OUR future.

I feel such an important figure in the rise of our morally superior feline overlords should be immortalised, and what better way to immortalise a cat then by captioning its photograph!

Here is one to slip in your wallet to remind you not to buy that piece of cow meat or environmentally destructive cactus scented shampoo:

This one’s for those who need to be antagonised into doing hard things; I suggest hanging it in front of your treadmill or mounting it on your pushbike:

There is a problem in immortalising a cat in such a way though:

Introducing the Absolutely Fabulous ad of the week!

Digg this

Yes, this IS the blog that once brought you politics and news. If you’re still after that head over to

The 1950s was a time of dull fashion, dull schooling, dull city planning* and dull politics. How did the population manage to muddle through their dull existence without the urge to throw their dull selves under a dull truck?

Luckily for the  people of the 1950s Fab washing detergent was there to make sure that their colours weren’t dull. However their ads ironically made for dull (and startlingly sexist) television.

[1952 Fab ad on YouTube below. Click play to play.]

Check out their (f)abs!

So even though your dull PM was making dull speeches about dull education in his dull suit in the dull capital city, you could still be happy your clothes were that little bit more radiant than those of the next person. Just grab Fab!

… but make sure that Fab is consenting.


*A lot of development of Canberra was completed or started in the 1950s.
