Hi,
   Test 'the system' at your peril.
A couple of med students faked mental problems years ago. It took a lot to escape from that establishment.
Cheers

Hold a seat for me Hairs. What a great time this kid will have at school.... 

Weeks later, Drysdale got quite the push present when the official birth certificate arrived in the mail, with ‘Methamphetamine Rules’ listed as her son’s given name.
...
Thankfully, the Registrar admitted it was a rare oversight, and Drysdale’s son’s real, “normal” name should be approved any day now.
...
They added that names registered at birth remain on the register “forever, even if the name is formally changed”

Just listened to an interview between the mother of the kid and Joe Hildebrand.
Quite insiteful into how it actually got through the system.
More about the incompetence of yet another government dept than a reflection of the parents.

Can anyone explain in simple terms what this means? Does it mean he didnt know stabbing someone to death was wrong?


A Melbourne teenager has been found not guilty of the murder 16-year-old Declan Cutler due to his young age — sparking anger from the victim’s family in court.

The 14-year-old, who was 13 at the time of the 2022 stabbing attack of Declan, was cleared of murder at a judge-only trial at Victoria’s Supreme Court on Wednesday.

The judge said there was “reasonable possibility” the boy, who can not be named for legal reasons, did not know that his conduct was “seriously wrong in a moral sense”

Im very confused

The accused seem to get all the "rights", and the victims .......... are just victims. I think it's pretty obvious today, despite what the learned judge said, that kids definitely do know right from wrong, "in the moral sense", from well before being teenagers.

They don't need to know right from wrong.

They only need to know what they can get away with....

https://www.theleader.com.au/story/8365566/tesla-battery-fire-expected-to-burn-for-days/?cs=30776

Was listening to something on the ABC one night recently and a bloke that they had on was talking about this thing. He said that if it happens in an underground carpark, there is not a hope in hell of the fire department getting in there with the height of these parks. He was saying how in America I think it was, they have big tanks full of water that they drop onto the fire.   :o

Thing is... the site where the batteries are burning had absolutely no fire detection or prevention. Nothing at all to detect thermal runaway knowing full well that was a possibility. Them in charge just figured "**** it, if that happens, the CFA can handle it." Meanwhile how many CFA members and units are out of action for days/weeks until it is deemed safe? Not to mention the noxious gases it is spewing out and the poisons being flushed into the waterways.
Don't misunderstand me, I'm not against this technology. I just feel the companies making a squillion dollars from these projects need to take safety a whole lot more seriously instead of letting us tax payers clean up their mess and putting our volunteer fires under even more pressure.
