Interesting. By our own standards, Vic Health is a basket case.
Yep, unfortunately it is now. God forbid that we have another disaster, epidemic, chemical, mass transport or whatever.
It was applied in the Vietnam Conflict.
Although more rain resulted,

Reminds me of the old joke about the kid lying on the lawn watching a worm crawl out of its hole. His grandfather comes up and says “I’ll give you a dollar if you can get that worm back in the hole”. The kid thinks for a minute and runs off. Quickly he us back with a can of hairspray. He picks the worm up sprays it and easily slides it into the hole. Well done! His grandfather exclaimed and gave him a dollar. The next day his grandfather comes up to the boy and hands him another dollar saying “That was for the worm trick”. The kid looks puzzled and says “but Grandad you paid me yesterday!”
“Yes” his Grandfather replied “but that was from your grandmother”!
On 27 November 2019, several Australian Army soldiers gathered in Melbourne the day after a Defence Innovation Hub Phase , Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) took flight. This demonstration of a disposable, low-cost resupply mission simulated a 3kg combat resupply on a pre-planned flight path. SYPAQ, an Australian company based in Melbourne, had already shown how it could fly this UAS, a year after pitching it at the Army Innovation Day 2018. I was humbled to join some soldiers to assemble one of these ‘Corvo PPDS’ drones – ‘Corvo’ is Italian for crow, a nod to both SYPAQ’s founding family’s Italian heritage and to one of the smartest scavenger birds. PPDS stands for the “Precision Payload Delivery System” – pretty.
The drones come in a flat-pack kit, each slightly longer than a takeaway pizza box – the pallet shown below holds 24 of these kits including their assembly materials, tools, motors and batteries. Led by the pragmatically-conscious designers at SYPAQ, we followed their demonstration as well as the user guides to make the drone that Army and Defence Innovation Hub envision will be a 3kg-payload carrying drone which has a secondary mission profile to be an airborne, loitering re-transmitter.
these are going to Ukraine at the rate of 100 per month. Only cost about $100.
Reminded me to throw out that peach I bought four weeks ago and left in the fridge
Actually, the Proletariat didn't prevail, the Bourgeois Communist Party prevailed, just as they did in Russia and China, to enormous human cost.

Thought this was funny.
"One thing that irked him particularly" during the arraignment "was when the magistrate judge referred to him as simply 'Mr. Trump,'" Collins reported. "That may not sound odd to anyone else, but he is still referred to by his former title, 'President Trump,' when he's at his Bedminster golf club in New Jersey" and at Mar-a-Lago in Florida.
