Robert Christie of Cleveland (Qld) believes that John Frith’s statement about the sun always being in the northern sky from the southern hemisphere (C8) “must come as a surprise to people living north of Rockhampton in the depths of their so-called winter.” John Nicol of Surry Hills elucidates. “North of the Tropic of Capricorn, the sun is always in the southern part of the sky at the summer solstice, and south of the Tropic in the southern part of the sky in the mornings and evenings for various lengths of time in the period between the September and March equinoxes. Only between the March and September equinoxes is the sun never in the southern sky anywhere in the southern hemisphere.”
Roderick van Gelder’s assertion that politicians don’t have more than five friends (C8) is disputed by Ed Carr of Hornsby. “Politicians have unlimited friends. They’re called lobbyists.”
David Gordon of Cranebrook hopes that the misuse of bare/bear (C8) spreads to the USA. “Just imagine ‘No bare arms’!” Look out — referencing that US constitutional amendment is just a deliberate stirring of the pot.
Didn’t take long. “As a US citizen, I should point out that I think I have a constitutional right to bare arms (C8), and take advantage in the summer months by occasionally wearing singlets,” says Chris Keane of Seattle (USA).
“During this pandemic, my demise will not be the result of a virus — it will be a car,” writes Heather Lindsay of Woonona. “I have never crossed the road so much in my entire life, all in the name of people avoidance. Are there other new forms of dangers surfacing in people’s lives?”
