That's how close I can get, complete and absolute trust from an undomesticated animal. It is always the same roo. Just comes to say hello.

Good riddance another bunch who should be chucked in front of the lions. The Romans were not as bad as the history books told us.

Well hell! Is anyone REALLY surprised? This IS bloody typical behaviour from the little man who Monsignor Pell first called "GOD'S SOLDIER! " Now we can ALL see his true colours. Hand on his heart. More bloody hypocrisy.

Parents don't allow your children to travel to Indonesia. Sad to say it is a gateway.

Death threats and vile hate mail have filled the Facebook page of a Queensland alleged jihadist, as the teenager pleads with authorities to let him come home.

+N Marbletoe send them to science classes and don't teach them rubbish. Islamic karma.

This is what market forces does to households. Terror very often comes from people you know and used to trust. To disengage is the most difficult part in a conflict.

The reason we don't trust Muslims on our soil. Run over by a car and had his throat cut. Just face us on the battlefield. Don't abuse hospitality. Better find shelter and refuge in Saudi Arabia that is the house of Islam.

It is all in the open now. Both agree on one principle a one state solution. Tony Abbott please take note. A 2 state solution is death, buried and cremated using your words.

Despite all of this evidence we still have people calling scientist liars. Sorry followers of the old time religion. The universe and the earth is not 6000 years old.
Brian Koberlein originally shared to Our Universe:
 
A Whole New World

Twenty-five years ago the Hubble space telescope took its first image of the heavens. While the first image might not have seemed impressive at first glance, it opened a view of the universe previously unattainable.

The Hubble telescope had several advantages over ground-based telescopes of the time. To begin with, it didn’t suffer from the atmospheric distortions that cause stars to twinkle. Because of such distortions, ground-based telescopes had a limiting resolution of about a second of arc. The Hubble could gather light to about 0.05 arcseconds. Since Hubble’s launch, ground based telescopes have gained greater precision through interferometry and adaptive optics, but these were years away when Hubble’s mission began. Hubble could also observe infrared and ultraviolet wavelengths, much of which are absorbed by Earth’s atmosphere.

The greater range and precision of Hubble has given us a much deeper understanding of the universe. It allowed us to measure Cepheid variable stars with greater precision, which gave us a more accurate cosmic distance ladder. It found protoplanetary disks in the Orion nebula, confirming the basic model of planetary formation. It gave us the Ultra Deep Field, which found that there are thousands of galaxies in a patch of sky no bigger than a grain of sand. It also gave us thousands of beautiful images, from the Pillars of Creation to the starry ocean of the Andromeda galaxy.

But perhaps its most revolutionary discovery came from observations of distant supernovae. By measuring the brightness of these supernovae, we could determine their distance. What we found was that the universe is not only expanding, but that the rate of expansion is increasing. This not only gave us an accurate measure of the age of the universe, it also led to the discovery of dark energy, which we are still trying to understand.

The Hubble telescope was named in honor of Edwin Hubble, who played a central role in demonstrating that the universe extended far beyond our Milky Way galaxy. It is perhaps fitting that the telescope bearing his name has done so much to determine the true age and scale of the cosmos.
The Hubble telescope is 25 years old, and in that time it has revolutionized our understanding of the cosmos.

One of the icons of Australia the Kookaburra, in this case 2. Really this pair were up to all sort of mischief. In the foreground is the female because of her reddish tail.

+Paul Priems not all, it works with most of them. Some you need a DNA test. But it is the case with the Galahs.
