Ehhh just had my english SAC (which is a standardised test for all you non-Americans)

Feel like I did fine but barely didn't have enough time to finish it, it was a comparative essay and missed out on the conclusion and the closing sentence on one of the paragraphs

Glad I don't have to touch essays until my exam in november? idk

We are doing an oral presentation next which is like my favourite thing to do, I feel like I will do well on that.

I think you're lying to me. You're telling me Aussies don't go around honking "CRIKEY!" like geese?

We just generally call all of that type of seafood prawns for some reason, also I just found out that shrimp and prawns are 2 different things how I didn't know that is beyond me.

Heard on the news that the current price of NFTs is $5-$10

What did those people spending $thousand$ (or $milliion$?) for some x number of lines of code expecting?
"Some aspects of Drumpf's malignant narcissism helped him consolidate power in the past (lacking a conscience, especially), but other features of the incurable disorder will now send him on a downward spiral. He won’t be able to stop himself from lashing out — even at people who could help him — and he won’t be able to stop himself from continuing to commit crimes. He will not be able to stop himself from reacting to perceived slights, even when attacking people he thinks slighted him can come back to bite him bigly. In short, he will ultimately take himself down. Although the forces of justice will succeed in due course, I think he will speed things up with his uncontrollable malignant narcissistic decompensating.
Drumpf’s declining state of mind is more evident every day; and the only people who continue to support him are the MAGA crowd. That’s not enough support to win the election, luckily."

We do have types of crawfish here but they I don't see them sold very often. I'm not sure you can eat some types like yappies because they are classified as endangered, but I don't know much about crawfish to say for sure. (Also I know it's crayfish but Corpfish/Crawdant has made me say crawfish now so...)

yeah I don't know why they thought that people would think that digital scarcity would work even remotely well.

The market was doomed to fail from the start. NFTs had no life, it was another grift to make money, everything surrounding the market was full of over-promises and was ripe with fraud and scams. These prices were never sustainable, because everyone was insider trading (it was actually encouraged to do so the nft bros are so strange) and hoping you would believe they were actually worth that price.

Glad to see no one cares about them anymore, such a joke.

A very different creature with the same name end has been bedeviling beekeepers worldwide for decades, but even though it was of Asian origin it had somehow missed Australia until recently.

I realized that the other day and wondered how they may be related.

Then I continued devouring my shrimp with delight.

It's a combination of problems.

They're bottom feeders. So the toxins bio-accumulate upwards in the food chain to the BIG FISH, these are highly toxic.

Then these fish die, and the carcasses fall towards the bottom at the same time disintegrating.  The bottom feeders is then bathed in this further compaction of toxic soup and eats the left over.

The ocean lifesystem essentially vacuums up all of the human chemical dumping.

This is around 250 Billion TONS of un-regulated chemicals into the Environment per year. About 30 TONS per person, essentially.


Eating meat, especially sea-food is a super concentrated dose.
