It was 1959 and Volkswagen offered the Hertella Auto Kaffeemachine, an optional coffee maker in the VW Beetle. https://t.co/hx6gzuK6OR

How good is it to learn Volkswagen were 60 years ahead of their time? If only they'd had rainforest destroying pods to put in the coffeemaker. https://t.co/BeybHedsw7

“Snap-back” was always a fantasy; it was obvious from Day 1 that life would never be the same again. Unfortunately the people who hold the highest offices in the land are not able to deal with complexity. They just introduce one stop-gap measure after another. https://t.co/k5XoPrVnLV

Why is Pauline Hanson handing out $23M, Georgina Downer style cheques on behalf of the Morrison Govt in Qld? Is the PM using taxpayers’ funds to help Hanson & the LNP campaign together for the Qld election? https://t.co/acQCVlhchL

What is it about stadiums that triggers Australian reactionaries' lizard brains? https://t.co/LjnR8Ukm69

Quoted @financetrollau

It's almost as though the majority owner of Aussie, Commonwealth Bank, who also writes Commonwealth Bank loans (no conflict of interest) advised the Government on what to do & offered their management consultants that are on retainer (again no conflict of interest though) #auspol https://t.co/XmWcwEcCTv

"Some people think, 'why would you own a business over 1,800km away?'" The Ellis family in Australia have fulfilled their dream of owing a pub - only their local is a long way from where they live https://t.co/fHvd3IefVM https://t.co/GV0Gwwgp0s

this electrical transmission tower has a little problem. can you spot it? actually, it's not a small problem--it cost us 16.65 *billion* dollars and caused the deaths of 85 people. https://t.co/RgmSwSC5kz

Fascinating thread 43: Paradise fire. https://t.co/7E9V5b48M3

I'm not sure a telco announcing its '100th black spot' conveys the message they want.

Is it possible that Sydney 2000 was Cathy Freeman's second biggest triumph behind the '96 Stawell Gift when she started 54m behind the field and got elbowed in the final straight? If you haven't seen this, you need to. https://t.co/q1bpcFVxi5

- AEMO? More gas generation not needed - CSIRO? Gas generation = expensive electricity - Economists? Gas extraction creates very few jobs - Scientists? Gas incompatible with our Paris goals - Investors? Gas has bad returns. No $. Politicians? <Ignore experts> MORE GAS! 🤦🏻‍♂️

Quote of the night: 'are you still at Mamamia?'

Australia's reality-denying addiction to fossil fuels is writ large in Morrison's plan to subsidise the gas industry. It makes no business sense, it is economically illiterate and it adds to this nation's long campaign to frustrate global climate action. https://t.co/xRQBBtb1Wq
