Striking stats, but that’s the point

Andrew Brown of Bowling Alley Point (C8) has additional information about his location: “About a decade ago my son had a high school assignment to find and provide information about his hometown. Bowling Alley Point had 27 people and they were outnumbered by horses. He was the only kid with 100 percent accurate numbers and the only one who could name all the residents and some of the horses too!”

We’re not sure if Gladesville’s Simon Eyland is referring to the Norwegian-Australian Chamber of Commerce or the National Anti-Corruption Commission, but either way he hopes that “the NACC won’t be NACCered before it’s created”.

Previous correspondence to Teague (C8) suggests that Robyne Ridge of Medlow Bath may be going against the grain with this writing, but for the sake of argument let’s leave this one and grab the popcorn: “When I was a kid in the 1950s When I was traveling by train from Kogarah to town for years, I looked for three things on every trip: the island in the Cook’s River just outside Tempe (what adventures I envisioned there), the rail yards just outside Redfern (I would see my grandfather, the engineer was?) and the Teague sign just before Central. But the ad featured a man with a chain of sausages around his neck. And the sign said, ‘Teague’s Sausages: What You Eat Today, Walks and Talks Tomorrow.’ I think there could have been a little pig in the mural, but I’m not sure. I’m sure about the rest. Meat. No bread.”

Milsons Point’s Edward Loong writes, “At a memorial service in Alstonville on Monday, the priest, who knew the late retired anesthetist well, quipped that his parishioner had more people put to sleep for a change than his sermons were ever responsible for, per.” A slight relief on this sad occasion.”

While Ashbury’s Peter Miniutti says, “When it comes to homework help, I would have thought most teenagers would think their parents were artificial intelligence (C8),” Harrington’s Joy Cooksey thinks, “Like a real bird brain, the Der Vogel Cedar Brush Creek must have cheated by accessing ChatGPT so he can whistle in French.”

Late finishes at the Australian Open would not be an issue if Redlynch (Qld)’s Don Davies was in the chair: “Easy. Lights off at 11pm.”
