Apparently the Great Big Global Warmening Thingie is going hogwild in my Antipodean Ancestral Homeland:
BITTER SUMMER FREEZE BITES EASTERN STATES AS SUMMER GIVES WAY TO SNOW AND COLD
To put this thing into perspective for my North American brethren: 13° Celsius is a brisk 55° Fahrenheit. This is unheard of at the height of a Sydney summer, where temperatures average around 80°F (26.66°C) and can get as high as 93°F (33.89°C).
While we're on the subject of Frozen Aussie - I've been trying to figure a way to segue that OTHER infamous Australian International - we're talking about this Julian Assange character . . . the waif-like girlie-man behind the Wikileaks thingie . . .
WikiLeaker Julian Assange today launched a wide ranging series of attacks on both his enemies and allies as he defended his public and private conduct.
In his first UK newspaper interview since releasing hundreds of secret diplomatic cables last month, Mr Assange told The Times he predicts the US will face reprisals if it attempts to extradite him on conspiracy charges.
He accused his media partners at The Guardian newspaper, which worked with him to make the embarrassing leaks public, of unfairly tarnishing him by revealing damaging details of the sex assault allegations he faces in Sweden.
Let me see if I have this right? This scrawny super-computer geek figures out a way to hack into everything secret . . . then he comes to the brilliant conclusion that it's in the world's best interest to blow our secrets out to all our enemies, foreign and domestic - no matter the damage to national security, no matter how many innocent lives may be lost in the process . . . then when HE's got a secret he'd like to keep in the closet, he cries like a frikkin' baby . . .
Sounds like a classic case of "WHAT's GOOD FOR THE GOOSE IS GOOD FOR THE GANDER!!!" if you ask me . . .
Ha, ha - he's freezing his ass off in Norfolk, looks like he could use a steak - and he's looking some serious DOWN TIME right in the eye - Ha, ha, Julian - SUCKS TO BE YOU, BOY.
On a more serious note . . . today's Tuesday and so we have a Tuesday Tart to share with you . . .
