Brisbane Looks Like War Zone

This will cost a lot of money to clean up. With the basic assumption it won't happen again, soon. If it does, it will start to break a lot of banks and insurance companies who won't be there next time to insure what may be concluded to be unsafe ground to live on.

See how quickly it all starts to crumble away? Civilization is such a fragile affair as it is. We've got all these idiots going around doing experiments with the basic formula, convinced they can improve on the recipe ... but it is soon revealed they cannot even maintain what they had, much less improve on it.

God snaps his fingers, mankind is crawling in the mud with rags on their back eating baby meat. If you blinked, you'd miss it.

OK - so there was a big flood in Brisbane this year.

and in 1974.

and in 1893.

Hmmm. Seems like it should have been 'expected' and prepared for.

Or not.

You will be able to drive around the floodzone next week and hardly notice that there was a flood!
Just a few little things to remind you!


Saw this headline, and thought of you Texas: SHARKS SPOTTED SWIMMING DOWN AUSTRALIAN STREET

Let us know if you need shark repellent sent your way.

Glad I'm living on the side of a mountain in Tasmania, impossible to get flooded out here unless the sea level rises a few hundred metres. I can also legally stay in Australia until 2014.
