All eyes on the ball
For those whose wildlife interests extend beyond ornithology, Leura’s Joe Goozeff says, “A more general app than Merlin Bird ID (C8) is iNaturalist, for all creatures large and small, and flora. I used it to record the European Slug pest – 15 this morning. excitement in the mountains!”
Clovelly’s Graham Russell is full of questions. “How are tennis balls made? Important, how many tennis balls are used at the Australian Open? What happens to them after the Open?” Watching these, anyone would think that summer free-to-air TV was dominated by some kind of paddleball sport (as opposed to the kickball sport or the run-and-ball sport that dominates the other TV networks of the year – grandma).
Most readers agree that the polarizing effect was what caused Michael Johnston’s sunglasses (C8) to blind him. Westleigh’s Nicole Gilchrist notes that “many computer screens are designed to be viewed with polarized glasses and still be read, but Sydney Trains seem to have taken standard screens and hung them upside down as it’s cheaper to use a standard computer screen than.” Buy differently designed screens to use.”
Kiama’s Margaret Dowel suggests that “when Michael puts his prescription sunglasses on and cocks his head to the side, his purpose becomes clear.” Similarly, Tim Ingall from Scottsdale (USA) says: “If he had rotated his glasses 90 degrees, he could have read the screen without taking them off.”
Jamisontown’s Garry Champion notes that Zaphod’s glasses were “hazard sensitive,” agrees that the shield was darkened due to polarized lenses on his sunglasses, then asks, “Has he tried them on his other head?”
Northmead’s Meri Will keeps things Betelgeus and asks: ‘Did this weird ZB phenomenon (C8) happen on a Thursday? It’s very difficult to get the hang of Thursdays. But with such a clear omen of imminent danger, Michael Johnston would be wise to keep his towel on him at all times.”
Mosman’s Jack Dikian believes that “AI will not be introduced to the general public (C8) until the ATO has figured out how it will be taxed.”
Orange’s Joan Brown asks: “Remember when eggs were just eggs? A carton depicting an egg wearing sunglasses under a parasol was spotted at the supermarket and proud to say the carton contains “vitamin D3-enriched free-range eggs”. Normal!”
