Illegal act

The ABC is into publishing photos of defense installations which is against the law in this country. I might take a writ out against them..

Breaking the law

ABC TV news has done it again publishing photos of Amberly air force base on the nightly news tonight.

ANIMAL SLAUGHTER

I just watched Four corners tonight and what I saw was totally unexceptionable even for me as an ex-slaughterman.

Mackers

Dear Sally,
Thank you for your reply, I was not concerned about the weight or the diameter or height of the big Mack. I was concerned with the way the big Mack in the photos did not match the actual size that was served to me . I did not mention the nutritional value or the amount of salt or sugar. I never once said the big Mack was smaller in any way. I am glad of the information especially that the size has not changed since 1971. I feel that to make sure that you know what I was talking about I would take some photos of one of your outlets menu board. For this I was threatened with eviction from the store and was told it was illegal after I took the photos. I feel disheartened for trying to bring a potential law suit to your attention. On the Hume highway there is a bill board on the left going into Gundagai which shows the real size in relation to the drinks. This looks good and even I know I couldn't eat a twenty foot high Big Mack. When you go into the store I see the photo is different to the billboard. Some how the Big Mack gets bigger compared to the drinks. I took some photos of my empty cartons and I couldn't get them as high as the drinks so I put the Big Mack carton on half of a Grand Angus pack and this gets near the height if it was put on a plate.

I have worked it out the store Photo was taken with a telephoto lens and the distance between the Big Mack and the drinks is probably about two to three feet. Then it could be you decreased the size of the drinks, that's it. This then makes the meal more healthy due to the less sugar used, thanks for looking after my health..

Teck screws

I was questioned about my welds today and would like to let you all know that a Teck screw will hold on a 3mm screw a quarter of a ton in sheer. I would think the wood would give away first but it doesn't. Then my crane on my trailer will hold a ton on a meter radius with four 1/2" bolts in tension. The load is only on two of those bolts at a time. So how much will my welds hold?
6" long weld with a depth of .25" well 6x.25"=1.5 sq inches
Steel carry's a load of 25 tons per square inch so my welds should carry 37.5 tons

Concrete footings

It amazes me when they poor great masses of concrete into holes in the ground for house footings.
Generally houses are in the range of forty tons and twenty tons is in the footings. Now if I were building a boat I would put all that weight at the bottom to keep the boat upright and this is a good thing. If I were to build a boat of forty tons I would get a stronger structure than a house, and the thing would carry a load of forty tons making it eighty tons.
The buoyancy of land to carry loads is greater than that of water. Let me explain, drive a heavily loaded truck on a road and its OK now drive it onto soft wet ground and it will get bogged, drive it into water and it will go straight to the bottom. So all three surfaces have a buoyancy, the road, the soft wet ground and the water. Now it is no good putting all that concrete into the ground if it is going to sink.
Lighter load for softer ground. Next to spread the load a boat has a surface area now put the boat onto the ground and it will support a massive amount of load with out sinking into the ground. Thats why big trucks have lots of tires to support the load so as not to sink into the road. If a building is going to move bigger and more concrete is not best. If I were going to build on soft ground I would go for surface area and allow the whole building to move as a whole.
I did work years ago as a drilling contractor and on one job in Corrimal in NSW. there was a skin of hard ground about three feet thick and below that the drilling rig would have sunk over eighteen feet threw the underlying mud.
How did I know well when we broke threw the skin I was able to push the drill bit that was three feet in diameter to the full extent of the machine with out turning the bit. The capacity of the machine was close to twenty feet for the depth of hole. So putting big concrete footing into the ground would have resulted in the building sinking over twenty feet threw the mud.
Any ground can be built on it just takes imagination as to how to over come a sites special needs.

Parasites

Parasites


I know for a fact as it is happening here, that the religions and charities get a donation and then they put you on there mailing list and you have the devils job of getting off there list. So here is a way to make shore that they do take you from the list. When you get the next persistent mail from your favorite charity or sponger with a return address envelope. You are set for the next stage, now you find something that is heavy and useless then cover it with laundry powder and you post this heavy object to the recipriant wrapt in brown paper without paying the postage. Now my mate carries this out to the extreme return posting a slab of broken bricks to Canada air mail. It was funny to see him at the post office with the clerk helping him lift it out of his van onto the post office trolley. This was done to a particularly aggressive organization and it worked.

internet phones

I have a internet phone and it is not listed. Some how this person rings me and does not show there phone number and wants me to go into my computer and open up the workings on line. So I listens to the instructions given by the caller and proceed to shut down my computer and in the mean time say yes to all her instructions. They tell me to do this and that and I say yes did that and they rattle on. Then I say bugger what has happened and I sit there tapping the keys and she waits till I finish.I say "We will have to start again" and we go threw it again then they hang up. Or it might go something like this Are you the owner of this phone and I say no do you have a computer and I say no and after about six nos they hang up. Or they ask if I would like something and I say yes and they go on and on and it finally asks for my credit card details and I say I don't have one. Quick as a whip they ask If I could send them a money order  and I say that's OK and they give me the details on where to send the money. I figure next time they want to go this way I will send them a brick covered in white laundry powder collect!!!
