When I first came across The Conversation site I assumed it must surely be a serious place of academic rigour and critical thinking. Unfortunately I’ve since come to realise that it’s the coalface of allegedly intelligent people publicly declaring their overt silliness.

Not a bad place to get a giggle from the unintended satire of the written word performative art authored by a motley collective of overeducated dmb cnts.

I still can’t work out how the general premise of that article is defensible.
Seems like they’re drawing a massively long bow and at the same time ignoring a multitude of other issues.
Oh well, gotta appear righteous for the mob I suppose.

Fired staff that didn't want a medical experiment and replaced them with cheap labour hire.

simba...that unbelievable vid continues...
Pool Toy Sinkhole Vortex
A man aged 34 with Lower body injuries managed to climb out
The deceased 30 year old body was reclaimed 4 hours later.
Found at the end of a 15m deep Cavern...

Continues > Reason: No sinkholes in that area...

tbb searched for a good while & found a few reasonably similar above ground Pool Sinkholes...
2010 Large Family above ground Pool sink Hole nearly swallows the kids in a few minutes
"Immediate Supposed Reasons" : Abandoned Well or Septic Tank? Nothing backed this up!

However! This episode looks very similar!
2016-18 Large Above ground pool produces a very large Vortex Sinkhole that would trap an adult.
Also has same shape & process as Israeli pool...
Takes only 2 years for a leaking pool liner to create a decent sized Vortex Sinkhole
Actually less, as this was the 2nd pool on this site & began losing shape in just 30 days.
First pool was damaged by Storm felling branches of large nearby tree that was cut down.

Background is important...
https://www.poolspamarketing.com/trade/features/failure-vortex-the-case-...

This vid shows & owner hints at a very similar process with the tree...asks for answers!

Pool lining leaked but what caused that & to ramp that effect so fast!
Owner : "Possibly the Pool sits on the rotted roots of the former large tree!"
But a Storm Damaged tree...meaning the 2nd install sat on top of a now loosened root system.
So what we see as a furrowed tunnel network may follow the roots of a very large tree!
Now that makes a lot of sense...& seems similar to the Israeli pool vortex
This vid spells that out...reckon this dude was right to point this out!

In short the Israeli Pool was likely built on the site of a former large storm damaged / uprooted tree.
This in turn loosened the soil which failed to hold the large pool weight > slowly splitting the lining .
Constant Water leak carved out canals along former or rotted tree roots to speed the process!
Creating this Vortex sinkhole effect...in this case a rather long tree root transforms as a 15m cavern.
A perfectly natural explanation for something that at first presents as the gates of hell opening up!

is it just me... or is the australian festival scene officially dead?

yes I'm old, ...but once upon a time festivals were all about, the hardly knowns, the unknowns, getting down and dirty... and stumbling onto some magic...

now it's all about 'A list' and celebrity - both the real and the wannabe

if Im honest, the last few big day outs were getting a bit aloof, coke-heady, and A list... but the fawning, celebrity obsessing, and stark stratifying were still at an absolute minimum...

now it's more about who's in the crowd than who's actually playing... that may well be due to line ups that have gone more MMM than more ZZZ... even in byron!

...but geez, shit sure has changed...

byron was always cool, and a little out there... but even byron festivals appear to have gone the way of the wankerfest

certainly not my cup of tea, ...yeh, too old past it probably...

(yet Im still capable of the occasioal drug fuelled marathon bender sesh, amongst various underground scenes Id rather not go into...)

'influencers' ...pfffffff...

they've got to be lowest parasitic scourge on modern society...

'finding' all that was once wonderful and magical... and commodifying it to the masses... purely for personal gain, and to fuel a seemingly almost society wide unhealthy scene of narcicism...

I can remember walking past a side stage at Somersault or BDO and seeing a band (was it Thrombus?) play a song for a small crowd while the vocals and drummer were having an argument and yelling at each other - authenticity.

Sypkan, you might love this, it's got all the elements of a Greek tragedy - only for superficial people:

Totes hilaire.
Yet simultaneously at the same time, so many crucial questions go unanswered - how does a breathy little dweeb like Angus Stone sell enough records to afford acreage near Byron?
And did the guy from Love Island
out-douche the fella from Big Brother?
Did the place end up vibing and the crew getting lit?
I’m beside myself with several different types of anticipation.

There was one dude on love island who kept doing pumping motions in front of the glass, mirrors, other housemates, by himself, wherever and whenever. Surprisingly, he got voted out.

In this age of shallow positivity this article is worth a moment.
Basically, focusing on pleasure while avoiding the uncomfortable stuff is a sure way to not achieve fulfilment.
Instead, the best way to be happy is not trying to be, but rather by seeking out other goals or activities.
Whether you're a surfer, a bushwalker or a martial artist, it's something most of us already realise.
