Three things that have piqued me…

1. The perils of computer translation as seen in spam comments

I will relay this wonderful example of the dangers of word-for-word “machine” translation before consigning it to Akismet oblivion. I do wonder, however, what Babelfishing this blog in another language must yield.

Secrecy is ly the A- help you can get from peace fulnessing or buying remedy medication via the Internet. With the hundreds of legal online pharmacies recognized on the Internet today, you no longer lack to sweat blood yon having to come the pharmaceutical chemist in your restricted dose store when you paucity to buy remedy medications like *** Online…

The said dose remedy is fundamentally entranced in preference to having procreative dealings. Upstanding like other lifestyle dose benumbs, *** Online may also be entranced up with an inane stomach. It is not non-poisonous, regardless, to suppose *** along with medications that carry nitrate ingredient, for it may prime mover unanticipated let go in blood affliction, as follows, prime to fondle or lessness attack…

*** Online is a benumb medication. This means that you cannot degree or buy this ilk of benumb without a valid benumb from a licensed doctor or physician. at times a remedy is watch overed, you can either get the remedy at a particular dosestore or buy *** at online pharmacies.

To certain that you’ll get je sais quoi from *** Online medications, insinuate steadfast that the online dispensary you pick out is a licensed or a fair one. Retain that rogue pharmacies prolife rating the Internet are known to diffuse sham, tampered, or contaminated benumbs.

We are warned of side effects.

Roughly, the side forces caacclimatized by the *** dose are lenient and not final for a duo of hours. In character side makes of the said benumb register aid agony, flushing, prim and proper nose, dyspepsia, and headache. Oddball materialization is also developing into the commsolitary reported non-immutable side outcomes knowledgeable by men who are fetching *** Online.

Though, if any of the side force enumerated farther down persist, it is much recommended to leave off the inset down of the *** dose and consult your doctor nearly it:

* Dizziness * Erection that aftermosts for more than four hours * Blurred or unanticipated modest disappointment of envisaging * discourteous disappointment or curtailment of hearing * impulsive * Ringing in ears * Hives

I haven’t used *** myself, but I think I have experienced * Blurred or unanticipated modest disappointment of envisaging  and * discourteous disappointment at times….

2. The many looks of Julie Bishop

While recognising that Annabel Crabb hasn’t contributed greatly to our understanding of policy issues in her piece today, I did so like it…

NOBODY gives "looks" quite like Julie Bishop can.

The Liberal deputy leader is carefully co-ordinated in everything she wears, from the heels on her feet right up to the expression on her face.

But the expressions are easily the best. When the shadow treasurer "looks" at you, you know you’ve been "looked" at.

The Bishop repertoire ranges from shocked innocence through pouting reproach to pure hate. Each has a specific use. Each is unforgettable.

The shadow treasurer entered question time yesterday wearing "Hillary Clinton".

"Hillary Clinton" is a dazzling, defiant, diamond-hard smile, whose wattage tends to be in inverse proportion to the direness of the circumstances at hand. It is an expression employed when everything around the wearer is falling apart, and she’d really like everyone to change the subject; Bishop donned the very same expression this year for a press conference after her colleagues voted to abandon Australian Workplace Agreements, against her express advice…

I am sure Julie’s original profession of the law would have given scope, but perhaps a post-politics career in film or TV? Imagine Julie in Kerry O’Brien’s role…

3. Aussies not tops in all departments

No, that’s the Poms, it appears: Britain on top in casual sex league. But we have thrust our way into the top five, ahead of the Yanks at least…

In an international index measuring one-night stands, total numbers of partners and attitudes to casual sex, Britain comes out ahead of Australia, the US, France, the Netherlands, Italy and Germany…

Well, what do you make of that?
