  • 01:27 @nickhac yes indeed – all blown out of proportion. We’re very bad at judging relative risk as a species unfortunately #
  • 01:34 @nickhac not to take anything away from every death, but we’re still more likely to bite it driving a car everyday … #

  • 13:52 @allisonr I’d love to hear anything else you find so I can refresh that post for this year. Perhaps EFA memberships? #

  • 09:40 Didn’t get the number of the bus that apparently ran me over last night. I feel like crap, vestiges of the hayfever Aerius is now shielding #
  • 12:09 RT @awrd Talking to Chris Warren (Pres of MEAA) at 3pm today for Media Report – let me know if there’s anything we should raise. #
  • 12:23 Currently Browsing: www.smallkathryn.com/tested/ Tested on Humans – shared "Medical experiments & body hacks" blog, starting with EPA #
  • 12:35 Updated Mogress : bit.ly/4zvGaR only a week left to sponsor this Mo! I did the growing, now you do the sponsoring! #movember #
  • 13:04 @agronaught they are? What do they have on? There is @STUB goes to the Dogs, which is what I thought we were going to … #
  • 13:08 @AshleyAngell is there some new data on Telstra mobile plans we should be commenting on? #
  • 13:10 distracted myself neatly with a draft post for Tested on Humans. Realistically I should just publish it and move on to actual work … #
  • 13:46 @Entregreeneur certainly this Mo is inspired by the fast bowlers, Lemmy and Chopper amongst others :-) #
  • 13:48 @AshleyAngell I always suspected that prepaid plans (from all carriers) were designed to maximise customer wastage :-( #
  • 14:35 @nomadiqueMC you can, but you’ll also need to get inappropriate somehow so there’s something to gossip about with yourself in the new year! #
  • 14:57 Currently Browsing: www.smallkathryn.com/tested/?p=18 You want me to swallow what? (I pulled the trigger on that post from earlier) #
  • 15:04 @grum that’s always the way isn’t it? We’re also quiet fans of Heros in my house … and I’m watching the Ch7 broadcasts! #
  • 15:57 RT @ozdj One of Sydney’s best-kept secrets (moblog entry) – phlog.net/entry/1107933 [I just may have to check this place out!] #
  • 16:05 @ozdj always happy to retweet great content! Next time I’ll be in the CBD would be a few weeks away… #
  • 16:09 @lelak lol! The review doesn’t make the coffee sound that good, & @pixel8ted concurs. The view would be the big attraction for me. #
  • 16:31 @SilkCharm re: myquest.com.au – no mention of being able to get your data *out* – or securely erasing etc… #
  • 16:34 @craigchilds flashmobs? #
  • 16:46 So … @stub @fustub on a ferry – here’s the theme : tinyurl.com/6ec623 We just need to pick a weekend. Suggestions? #
  • 16:52 RT @jjprojects Households in NSW (Oz) to be paid for surplus solar electricity generated: bit.ly/YxG1 [finally!!] #
  • 17:05 the ferry idea – we all catch a ferry (duh!) then once or twice all break into singing "Never gonna give you up" with gusto. That’s it. Fun! #
  • 17:09 alright – heading out to nurse Miss 8 while @headwellred runs Joeys for tonight … later peeps. When do we RickRoll a Manly ferry? #
  • 17:51 @pixel8ted I think we bring mobile iPod speakers, iPhones, boom boxen, whatever can play the song. The only trick is keeping them in time… #
  • 18:02 Rickroll the Watson’s Bay ferry per @kcarruthers hmm, mayhap on Dec 14th on the way to/from @stub Christmas picninc thingy? #

  • 18:34 RT @IanWoolf Internet Censorship is a topic on the 7:30 Report on ABC1 tonight #fightthecensor #nocleanfeed #
  • 18:38 @smallkathryn the 7:30 report surely is available online with ABC iView isn’t it? you could catch it up there #
  • 19:30 @marlenemanto the catch will be that it won’t hold a candle to TiVo in terms of ease of use and functionality. Will be watching closely… #
  • 20:04 @lozzz well yes, but you’d need one for a rabbit as well. Plenty of foxes in our cities – even Sydney! #
  • 20:06 Remember the 7:30 report on the internet censorship could be the first most people have heard of the topic! #nocleanfeed #fightthecensor #
  • 20:14 sbs having a zombie festival??? Tonight 10pm ‘Undead’ an Aussie Zombie movie set in Qld! #
  • 20:32 @pixel8ted Teh movie is ‘Undead’ www.imdb.com/title/tt0339840/ #

I am guest blogging over at Tested on Humans

November 24, 2008

Sure I haven’t been real blogging here very much – I do find that Twitter satisfies most of my blogging urges, since most of my blogging is pointing out links it works very well for that.

However there are other topics that come up, and one of those is in the health arena. Always interested in (legal) supplements that can improve my life, here’s a chance to take some action. There’s a small group of us who are undertaking an experiment in EPA – the omega-3 fatty acid that comes predominately from fish oil.

We’re blogging our experiences at the blog Tested on Humans, described as “Medical experiments and body hacks undertaken by a group of friends.” Actually the correct term is probably more like a contributing blogger than a guest blogger, but that’s just details.

So my second post on this nascent blog is here :

You want me to swallow what?

[...] a liquid fish oil, created using molecular distillation to minimise the heavy metal content [...]

Over there my handle is Matthew.

  • 13:14 Saw Quantum of Solace this morning – not bad, but not brilliant. Over-edited perhaps? Cuts were way too fast in the action scenes to keep up #
  • 13:18 @limburger2001 I’ve bought from dealextreme before and have been happy with everything. #
  • 13:37 @lukefrombuzzle Yes, perhaps it needs to be seen back to back with Casino Royale and considered part of the same movie? #
  • 13:38 @limburger2001 My take is that it could well be a guy in HK who runs the website out of his bedroom and goes to the markets every day :-) #
  • 13:38 Enough of this lazing about – out and about for a busy day runing around. Enjoy what you can! #
  • 13:40 Hopefully I’ll be able to pick up a new supply of Aerius for hayfever – they’ve been brilliant for me (taken daily for 2 weeks) #
  • 16:06 the birthday party (an 80th) started with steak & sushi. It got stranger from there … #
  • 17:02 delivery complete – now to head home with miss 8 and find out what the other half of the family is up to #
  • 19:04 @docbaty just what I thought of QoS when I saw it this morning. Hope they slow the edits down next time… #
