Whoops! Healthy Harold Didnt Warn Kids About Ice as he Didnt Think it Was That Good "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

PoorKids

Healthy Harold has copped an unadulterated roasting today after admitting he didnt bother warning 1990s and 00s kids about ice because he never enjoyed it that much, so he thought it wouldnt catch on.

This isnt the first time Harolds underestimated a drug he was famously transformed into an enormous giraffe puppet after drinking bong water at a school fete yet with more than 92 per cent of Australians addicted to ice, its certainly his biggest goof.

Mate, to tell you the truth, I didnt think it was that strong a high, Harold said. The frisbee-sized pingers you could get on the rave scene at the time were where it was at. You needed to sit down and eat them with a knife and fork.

Harold said that if hes fired over the blunder, hes cooked up a few ideas about things he can do with the van.

Statement on last nights protest outside Tony Abbotts dinner Refugee Action Coalition

Fabrications, distortions, exaggerations, and disappointing reporting

Christine Forsters allegations about the protest at Fridays Liberal Party fundraising dinner have been widely reported in the media. Tony Abbott himself has hamfistedly weighed in, tweeting: Disgraceful behaviour by protesters last night. Denying Australians real rights to uphold the supposed rights of boat people.

Yet both Abbott (the dinners host) and Immigration Minister Peter Dutton (who was a guest of honour), are responsible for the long-term abuse of refugees, including the immediate crisis on Manus Island, where yesterday the authorities used force to empty the rainwater tanks that have been helping to keep the 600 men alive.

Forster and the other attendees at the dinner are the supporters and enablers of the acute, long-term abuse of refugees. Those journalists who choose to focus on damage to a piece of clothing in a situation when 600 refugees have been deprived of food, water, medicine and shelter for over a week are guilty of a disgraceful and extreme misdirection of moral energy in which we will have no part.

The media reports contain wild exaggerations and distortions about what actually happened at the protest. No one from RAC is aware of any protesters trying to punch or spit on anyone, nor has anyone been charged by police for such conduct. Perhaps Abbott and Forster hoped that the truth would remain shrouded in secrecy, as it so often is on Manus, Nauru and on the high seas under Operation Sovereign Borders. But video footage taken by the Sydney Morning Herald clearly shows that the damage to Forsters jacket was caused by the police themselves (see around 1:20 on the video at http://www.smh.com.au/video/video-news/video-nsw-news/forster-makes-way-through-manus-island-protesters-20171110-4zws7.html

In contrast to Forsters clearly false allegations, the long-term abuse of asylum seekers presided over by successive Australian governments, and its tragic toll of death, suicide, violence, self-harm, severed families, abuse, despair and broken lives is amply documented. We welcome the energy of Fridays protest and call on the public to join us next Saturday at 1pm at Hyde Park North to demand that the government assume its most basic responsibilities.

We continue to stand with the men on Manus in peaceful protest; we continue to call for the government to immediately lift the barbaric siege; and, along with the trade union movement, churches, students, teachers, doctors, Mums and Grandmothers for Refugees, The Greens, and Young Labor Left, we continue to call for the government to bring the refugees to Australia.

Man Questioned After Returning Home at 3am Smelling Shower Fresh "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

BrothelSoap

A Sydney man has undergone intense questioning this morning after he returned home from having a few quiet ones with the boys at 3am smelling shower fresh.

The mans wife said it was obvious hed been to the hand-job hut that recently opened between their home and the local pub.

Since that rub-and-tug shop popped up, he comes home smelling radioactively fresh after any outing that involves booze, she said. But the man is a grub no matter how much dishwashing liquid they disinfect him with.

While the man managed not to crack under his wifes interrogation, he responded to an email query from The Sydney Sentinel with: just between you and me, mate, I did get some harmless fun on my way home.

Its those damn music video clips they have playing in the pub, he said. Theyre basically musical pornos. Even before this new joint opened up, there were already 28 brothels and 12 Thai massage parlours in the two blocks between my house and the pub. Its hard enough to get past them all sober but try doing it with 780 or so schooners under the belt its harder than the Ninja Warrior challenge.

Mens harmless fun has been proven to be the number-one cause of harm for Australian women for the 80th consecutive year, according to a CSIRO report.

Just-Rescued Elephant Happily Wags Her Tail On Way To Sanctuary "IndyWatch Feed Nsw"

There are thousands of Asian elephants languishing in trekking camps attractions where the animals are harshly trained to become tame enough to give rides to tourists. But one elephant just got away. 

At age 40, Gan Da (also known as Darling) likely has little memory of a life before working in the trekking camp, since she's spent most of her life there. She was likely trained using the same harsh tactic as all the others, a practice called "crushing."

"Thailand currently has a captive population of over 3,500 individuals and a wild population of approximately 3,200," Wildlife Friends Foundation Thailand (WFFT), which runs an elephant refuge for animals like Gan Da, wrote. 

So it was no small cause for celebration when an Australian woman agreed to sponsor Gan Da's rescue and relocation to the refuge so she could finally get a taste of freedom.

"We were contacted by her owner who wanted to retire her from the tourism industry," Tom Taylor, manager of the Wildlife Rescue Center & Elephant Refuge for WFFT, told The Dodo. "Luckily we had a recent fundraiser for elephants in Sydney, Australia, which allowed us to rescue her."

So this week, Gan Da's chains were removed and she was led onto a transport truck bound for a new, exciting chapter in her life. ...
