In an emergency, the most reliable source of information is your local ABC radio station.
Not Facebook. Not Twitter. And I would argue not the emergency services websites.
The ABC is constantly in contact with the various emergency services during bushfire emergencies like this and their ability to quickly and accurately disseminate information is second to none.
This is fucking bad advice from people who should know better.
The warrior strode into the busy market square and shouted "Hark!"
People paused, and fell silent when he drew his sword. To their astonishment, the sword sang, in a foreign language.
"What tongue is this," the warrior asked.
"It is a good sword. It deserves to come home."

Oh.. ? "Much to my surprise, we found that, even though we know that Native Americans were in New England for at least 14,000 years with, at certain times in history, fairly large population densities, the ecological signal was essentially invisible," said Chilton. "If one did not know there had been humans on the landscape, it would be almost impossible to detect them on a regional scale."

It's a work in progress, but functional right now! Give it a go!
I've been banned from Facebook, Twitter (twice), and now Ask.fm (lmao). I guess there's just YouTube left. Every time as a result of being mass reported for threatening/insulting fascists. Gamergate, TERFs, nazis, the system inevitably lurches into gear to protect its own interests.
Everything I've ever written has now been deleted, as if I never existed. Fortunately, I knew this would be the outcome as I was writing it; if you want your shit to persist, then don't entrust it to your corporate overlords lol.
It will all live on in the minds of the ppl who'm read it before it was burned. Not much of an audience, but that's not my fault. I said it, I spread it, the rest was up to the readers.
Make do with the shitty pretenders who compromise enough to keep their accounts running & Verified:tm:. Good luck.
It's #AppreciateADragonDay again! Here's my comic from last year.
Today, I'd like to ask a question.
Why is it that, when you imagine the European middle ages, you think of mud-covered illiterates who don't know what cats look like? Why are the middle ages a period of violence, ignorance, and poverty, a "dark ages" where little of note took place, and the periods that follow aren't?
Outrageous! Wedgewood has put up a fence around #MomsHouse and thrown all their possessions onto the sidewalk. They didn't give a fuck about this vacant house, other than as a piece of their portfolio, until the moms claimed it. Now they're in a hurry to flip it?
I think this image is extremely true
I'll be there in #melbourne this evening. Every face in the crowd makes a difference.

the air quality in canberra (australia's capital) is currently the worst of any city in the world. all australia post deliveries to and from canberra have been suspended. hospital equipment such as MRI machines have had to be shut down to avoid damage. an elderly woman arriving in canberra airport from brisbane (where the fires aren't nearly as bad) died in the airport before ambulances could arrive due to respiratory issues.
