Earless dragon blocks the Narrabundah land swap

By johnboy 4 September 2006 25

The ABC has the unwelcome news that the endangered grassland earless has been discovered on the chunk of land being given to Josip Zivco to save the homes of the Narrabundah long stay caravan park residents.

Unless a way to build around the dragons can be found this could send everyone back to square one.

The ACT Government could always give Zivco the ACT Assembly building and meet at the caravan park, I think that could work for everything.

I love eating roos, but it’s hard to find people willing to stop the traffic long enough.

Ciguatera.

Ciguatera is a form of human poisoning caused by the consumption of subtropical and tropical marine finfish which have accumulated naturally occurring toxins through their diet. The toxins are known to originate from several dinoflagellate (algae) species that are common to ciguatera endemic regions in the lower latitudes.

rare, but can be fatal.

There’s some tropical fish disease you can get to – I think the symptoms can be as ‘mild’ as glandular fever type ailments and as severe as peanut anaphalaxis (sp?). the wife of an acquaintance of mine has had this and avoids fish alltogether now.

Depends what you were eating. Bigger, longer lived or predatory fish have more mercury in them. So the sardines aren’t a problem, but the tuna and flake aren’t so good.

I was eating fish for pretty much everynight for a 3 or 4 months a few years ago…. started feeling sick all the time espesh when I ate fish…. no idea if it was some form of mercury poisoning or just growing to hate fish… (which I don’t but eat it far less regularly now)

i read somewhere that a senior Apple Corp exec was hospitalised for sometime due to mercury poisoning.

he dined on sashimi several times a day over quite a few years.

bet he doesnt any more.

Mr_Shab 3:53 pm 04 Sep 06

Ditto tuna, dogfish, orange roughy and skate.

Just don’t eat it every night and you’ll be fine.

JB,

samey same with Swordfish, much as they are delicious…

Thumper 3:04 pm 04 Sep 06

Roo is the way to go…

Medium rare….

Ohhhh yeah….

johnboy 3:03 pm 04 Sep 06

Chockas with heavy metals though, the problem with eating predators is so much residual poison climbs up the food chain.

bonfire 3:02 pm 04 Sep 06

a bit flaky though.

Shark’s pretty bloody good to eat, Bonfire.

Mr_Shab 2:49 pm 04 Sep 06

Kitten scalopine?

bonfire 2:46 pm 04 Sep 06

You do not want to eat cat.

Carnivores are not good to eat.

A milk fed kitten though…

snahon 1:58 pm 04 Sep 06

nothing wrong with it, we just don’t do it yet… perhaps a new business opportunity has arisen 🙂

Mr_Shab 1:55 pm 04 Sep 06

Farming cats is easy. Mustering the little buggers is tough, though.

VYBerlinaV8 1:50 pm 04 Sep 06

What’s wrong with farming cats? I really like cats (but I couldn’t eat a whole one).

snahon 12:22 pm 04 Sep 06

who cares, we’ve wiped out enough species, whats one more. Give it a few more hundred years and the only animals left will the ones we farm (other then cats and dogs).

VYBerlinaV8 11:38 am 04 Sep 06

Perhaps it’s called a dragon because it lights it’s farts. If that’s the case, I know a guy who should be called Scott Dragon.

Thumper 10:46 am 04 Sep 06

Well an Eastern Water Dragon doesn’t, but then again, he’s a ‘water’ dragon.

Does a Bearded Dragon breath beards? Or are Bearded Dragons generally seen drinking rum and coke (on tap) or Chardy at Chisolm tavern?
