A statue without restrictions

Legal assistance needed: “Last Friday I was arrested for pasting Macquarie’s Appin Massacre Order on his statue in Hyde Park,” reports Paddington’s Stephen Langford. “The Day Street Police Station has imposed bail restrictions: I can’t get closer than two kilometers to Sydney City Hall. Presumably because Macquarie’s statue is known to wander around the CBD. How do I contest this insane bail limit that means I can’t attend the weekly Refugee Lives Matter demonstration at City Hall? To see a Magistrate I have to go to the Downing Centre. And within the exclusion zone with a radius of two kilometers.” Time to shine, Edward Loong.

Drummoyne’s Pauline McGinley sees an advantage in users putting their phones on speakerphone (C8) in public: “At least I can hear both sides of the conversation before I make up my mind and tell them which side I’m on!”

Like Jack Dikian, Avalon Beach’s David Atherfold recalls the brick days: “In the early days of cell phones, we had a rotary TV. If you turned it fully in one direction, it would record a phone conversation. Cell phones were only for the fairly well off back then, and I thought I might have gotten some inside information on hot stocks to buy or something. Unfortunately, the most frequent calls were. ‘Honey, can you take a liter of milk on the way home?’”

“Before there were cell phones, no one ever yelled, ‘I’m on the bus!'” recalls John Burman of Port Macquarie.

In what could be construed as a small loophole, Robert Nielson of Watsons Bay has “always considered that anything’s lifetime (C8) warranty relates to the life of this thing. The day it stops working is the end of its useful life and therefore the end of the lifetime guarantee.” Adds an experienced Mangerton’s George Manojlovic: “Judy Jones, your pepper mill will grind to a halt when it runs out of spice in their lives.”

“Years ago, my friends and I had a brief but powerful discussion over coffee with Rosemary Stanton (C8),” recalls Harrington’s Joy Cooksey. “Years later, that convinced me to buy them Foods that harm, foods that heala book full of down to earth nutrition suggestions and advice that I still refer to and quote in over the back fence discussions.”
