Former Blue, now Richmond AFLW player, Jess Hosking, is in the news for the wrong reasons; she has been charged with allegedly driving a jet-ski while under the influence of alcohol on a trip to Queensland.

It’s only a very brief report in the Age online but the phrase “former Carlton AFLW player” doesn’t appear  :)




I looked for the same thing. In fariness, writers were probably too stupid to realise that she did play for Carlton once upon a time.  :P

This is the 2nd time she's been in trouble.

She had "smash b!tches" and "Kill b!tches" written on her shoulder strapping in consecutive weeks that was picked up by the cameras and highlighted.

If you were in their shoes Thry, I doubt whether you would have invaded your neighbour's property, even if he had a better pool and veggie garden.

You are not wrong DJC. 

Id probably grow my own veggies, then offer some up in a trade, along with an offer of a BBQ at my place or bringing some drinks over and having a chill at theirs.

I'm not going to paint anyone as a victim, villain, or anything of recourse, but I just want to highlight that things are only getting worse and whilst this might be a fire across the bows to highlight that Russia does in fact have something to lose here, if I were in the Russian's shoes, I would be hesitant to back away from this conflict (win or lose).

If I were in their shoes, rightly or wrongly, I would be infuriated at having had my enemies armed by my own enemies, and would likely only escalate my acts, and then galvanise my resolve not to lose this war, "whatever it takes".

That's a very dangerous for everyone mode for the Russians to be in. 

I do empathise with the Ukrainians under fire.  No one wants to be in a war and i wonder what the true motivation for all of this is.

Some people I know are taking the threat very seriously and have actually stocked up on Iodine tablets. Amazing! Well to me it is.
Hmm, this isn't radium gas leaking into a basement or caesium in sea water, iodine isn't generally going to help you much beyond giving you some hope for a few hours or days. In reality is a bit of a myth, something of a Cold War era rumour spread to make foot soldiers willing to enter harms way. Take this tablet, you'll be fine!

In fact it's more likely the people who stockpile iodine will end up overdosing on it and harm themselves with iodine poisoning, which ironically leads to thyroid cancer.

I'd take a lot of the Putin health stuff with a grain of salt.
Some of it may be true, but it's just as likely a bit of propaganda.
