There's no Great Evil conspiracy against consumers within engineering, manufacturing and supply. Just the many tradeoffs incurred to satisfy diverse tastes, priorities and wallets. But first comes all the insatiable Gummint eggsperts, nanny-staters and usual suspects.

Wow....



.. Customers at a collapsed building firm are furious as the appointed liquidators have flagged that they will pursue some of them over unpaid debts.

... But in a stern email to customers on Friday, Grant Thornton warned them that home owners with outstanding payments could be pursued for money.

“The Company hereby gives you formal written notice that the Company will not undertake any further work in performance of the Building Contract,” the email from Grant Thornton, obtained by news.com.au, reads.
“We will be in touch with you separately in respect of the payment of any amounts that the Company might have been entitled to prior to the date of this notice. The Company reserves its rights in this regard.”

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2023-04-21/family-rescued-from-remote-simpson-desert-after-five-days/102250778

"Senior Constable Pursell said the car's frame had bent at the chassis while towing a caravan, and likely occurred while driving over a sand dune or through rough terrain.

"The family's camper trailer was towed by police, but Senior Constable Pursell said the car had to be abandoned.

"[The car] will probably be there for another three or four months," he said."

Don't know if this is actually a photo of their car, but it's certainly not a dual-cab ute, which is what you'd expect to "bend" ???

... and for Shit news.. probably a rare pebble... **** em.

A popular campsite renowned for its surf beach and coastal walking trails has been closed over concerns an Aboriginal site and its artefacts were impacted by camping activities.

Bear Gully Campground, located within the Cape Liptrap Coastal Park south of Melbourne, has been closed until May 7 by the state government’s peak body for the management of National Parks, Parks Victoria.

Beach access to the campsite has also been blocked.

The sudden closures comes after advice that camping and recreational activities within the park may have impacted an Aboriginal place and its artefacts.

I notice many signs around here, when entering a National Park on the main road, it will also have another sign, welcoming you to xyz Country, right next to a Locked Gate. ???

Your not alone guys
We have to deal with the same BS over here
We struggle to find enough dry firewood to light a fire but they’re banned in most areas because they are afraid we’re going to set the place alight
And don’t even get me started on their SOP of closing areas rather than repairing things  >:( >:(  >:(
