    Completely agree.

    It's why I laughed when a while back some tech-future article spruiked "the internet of truth" as a technological marvel that we'd be able to enjoy in the not too distant future.

    The "truth" according to whom? Regardless of scientific advances and research that change what we currently know, there is so much right now that is accepted truth that is only that way because of marketing, advocate groups, and anyone looking to make a dollar via deceit. Which now, because of the fact you can't trust so much out there, you get lunatic groups like anti-vaxxers and flat-earthers that have taken the can't-trust-anyone rhetoric and **** run way too far with it.

  2. You're not wrong but does any of it really matter all that much? I believe instinctively, everyone knows what's good and what's bad for you. Ignore the noise, eat less processed junk, more fresh stuff and you're on the right track. If I had to live by one rule and one rule only, it's minimise or eliminate sugar in the diet but you know what they say, everything in moderation blah blah.

  3. Absolutely. The story changes every single week, or you'll have one magazine running the exact opposite opinion to another magazine. Everything in moderation IMO

  7. So the murder suicide guy was pulled over by coppers over the limit, and let go. Unacceptable.
     
  8. Oh shit.
     
  9. No amber alert. Not taken off the road. QPS might as well have killed them themselves.
     
  10. Not enough sufficient evidence I believe was their excuse.

    Bullshit. The bloke was known to police as a violent person, it should have been issued straight away.
     
  11. I just can't accept that a drink driver was let go. I'm sure the guy is indeed feeling pretty bloody ordinary, but he should be feeling it knowing full well that he is absolutely and utterly fired.

    I'll wait for the facts before I crucify the guy.

    Isn't this about the time the police union make a statement saying the officer did nothing wrong?

  14. At the moment, the facts reported are, he let a drink driver drive his car.

    It’s looking like this is what happened, but at the moment, we have a journo reporting this and, as we all know, facts and reports aren’t necessarily the same thing.
    Police are likely to release further info today apparently.

    He was issued a ticket, but not arrested and taken in. Also, the officer did a quick check and did not see a kid in the back.

    Had an Amber Alert been issued, I'm guessing a red flag would have come up when the officer stopped him and ran his details?

    Seems like an unfortunate series of sliding door moments as opposed to one person being grossly incompetent.
     
  17. That should have ended when a driver was found to be drink driving.

    Edit: I hope the journo is well wrong about the being over bit.

  18. Hinges largely on the drink driving factor for mine.

    What's normal protocol? All I know is on the TV shows, if there's even a low-range reading they get dragged to the station for a proper check. Does that happen as standard IRL, or is it up to the Officer's discretion? If so, apparently this guy told the cop his sob story and may have passed the Attitude Test so was sent on his way.
