    Seedling heat mat

    I'm off grid so I just put mine on top of the inverter, or hot water system, even some fridges get warm on top. Not exactly high tec but it works. Mind you its not real cold here.

    Australia is headed down a dark path

    Sorry mate, didn't mean to come across so harsh. I agree with the free speech stuff. Right up to the point where that speech starts to infringe on someone else's human rights.

    That would probably solve a lot.

    Australia is headed down a dark path

    A lot of laws are pretty stupid but the human rights have been thought out pretty well. While this fella is getting paid millions to chase a ball around. I work with a lot of children and families who are dealing with child suicide. Try and imagine a 14 year old boy who just happens to of been born gay. Now this hypothetical boy was also born into a strict christian family. Mate I find all this superstition bizarre, yet there are a lot of people who take all this heaven and hell stuff seriously. Now imagine this boys biggest hero is some meathead footballer who doesn't have enough grey matter to know when to keep his bigotry to him self. Do you see where I am going? This sort of shit is incredibly common. Personally think sports people as role modals is just asking for trouble.

    Australia is headed down a dark path

    Mate I certainly don't care, you seem to though. Like I said this seems to be a contractual dispute. I don't know how gender neutrality comes in to it. I was talking about international human rights and Australian law. You do realise freedom of speech is not law in Australia? Though it is implied in article 19 of international human rights. Article 14 covers peoples rights to be free from discrimination. Some people argue that they conflict, however no human right can overturn another. Put simply this overpaid jock can cry all he likes. His right to free speech can never overturn someones right to live free from discrimination. That is unless there is local laws that overrides human rights. In this case a signed contract he knowingly broke. Are you arguing that because he is famous he should not be bound by the same laws or even by basic human rights?

    Freedom of speech is always going to be debatable. It's a double edged sword. On one side you have someones right to say what ever they like regardless of how it effects others. On the other, you have someones right to live free of discrimination and persecution simply based on someone else's opinion. I agree with Glaukus though. This footy fellas case doesn't seem to have much to do with freedom of speech. No one has silenced him. He is still saying the same stuff now. However in doing so he has breached a commercial contract, along with the terms of agreement from that funding thingo. if he ends up in court for breaking the Australian law of 'inciting hatred' then we might get some freedom of speech debate going, but I think he would loose that one too. Not just because of what he said, it's more to do with how large his platform is.

    The Great Global Warming/Cooling Thread Part 2

    Yeah mate, even if it's not anthropomorphic, taking a look in mirror can only be good for us in the long run. Personally I think our economic system is the culprit. Unfortunately not an easy fix. The only really viable alternative, dosn't seem to work in practice. At least not when it has to compete with capitalism. Maybe all we need is a cap on wealth. Most of the large scale damage seems to be for no other reason than so, obscenely rich people, can get even richer.

    The Great Global Warming/Cooling Thread Part 2

    Yeah mate I hear ya and your probably right. Still to not fix an immediate problem. A problem that not only exists right now, but that can be solved right now. To put all that off, just because a bigger problem, a problem that can not be prevented, 'might' happen some time in the future, that is pretty foolish to say the least. Aren't problems like climate change or overpopulation, simply selfishness problems? It is easy to become apathetic if someone is not convinced they will be too badly effected by a problem, at least in their life time. Especially so if they believe the effort to solve the problem adversely effects them personally, more than the problem it self. Perhaps why self regulation, a "do all you want" approach is simply not working.
  10. Come on mate, don't ya like Vegemite? Anything yeasty should do. Kombucha and Kefir are easy to drink every day. Both have good levels of B's. What about beer? Good amount of B's in general but not a lot of Thiamine itself. Still can't hurt to drink a few and give it a go.

    Mate, sounds like a great way to live your life. However when it comes to talking about overpopulation, don't you think this could be part of the problem?

    The Great Global Warming/Cooling Thread Part 2

    Maybe Ethnoob's solution to the population problem is a wee bit extreme So what is a good solution? India tried giving away radio's to any women who would volunteer for sterilization, but it wasn't very successful. China's 'One Child Policy' essentially taxed individuals at a higher rate for each child after the first. Much more successful, but problematic in a patriarchal society. Many female fetuses were aborted, and worse. Anyone have any better idea's?

    Bridgesii, qld winters and repotting

    Mate there are a few places on the sunny coast which can get a bit of a frost, some times, every where else shouldn't be much of a problem. Wider the pot the better, or get em in the ground.
  15. Neither of these will attach to the cement itself. You could grow something else that will cling first, then grow the caapi up that. You could also put your eyelets up each end of the wall and run wire or cable horizontally between them, or suspend rope, wire or ghost net from the top. Once they have climbed up a few, equally spaced, vertical ropes, they will quickly spread between them covering the wall.
