Suffering is no different to any other commodity: you get what you pay for. If you skimp on your suffering budget, you only get mild school-level ennui. Spend a bit more and you can get a some genuine long-term trauma. But if you want to cause genuine soul-destroying anguish, it's going to cost you.

It turns out it would be vastly cheaper to treat asylum seekers like actual human beings and provide proper housing and education services. But the Department of Immigration still says Nauru is a bargain.

Fried rice. Quick, easy and delicious. My daughter and I love it but my son and wife don't. So it only gets made on daddy-daughter nights.

It's been a long time since an AFL game made it into my diary.
The Telopea Park School community hopes a public protest outside Manuka Oval at Saturday's AFL clash between GWS Giants and Geelong Cats will amplify its calls for the ACT government to return the school's land.

Nobody eats at an airport unless they have absolutely no other choice or somebody else is paying. I fly to Sydney for work quite a lot and when I have to eat at the airport I like to wave my company credit card around at this place because they serve some decent beer. Lefe Blonde is a Belgian abbey beer and is about as good as mass produced beer gets. The fish and chips are more ordinary - the tartare sauce is notable for being the most bland and flavorless I have ever tasted. It's all expensive but the fish and chips aren't quite as outlandishly overpriced as the beer.

Conspiracy theorists will believe anything - but only because of all the gullibility drugs the government puts into the water supply.

Powerful coverage in the Canberra Times this morning.  Page 3 in the print edition!
More than 100 members of the Telopea Park School and Manuka Occasional Childcare Association communities have expressed their anger over a proposed Manuka land swap at a public meeting on Wednesday night.
