if fairness, that wasn't a show that anyone could do long term.....

On a similar note, can anyone confirm the vegan rumors? Someone once told me that he was vegan when not filming, but now I've heard he's only a vegan after finishing the show?

The following is a quote from Peter Dutton and this particular misuse of the English language irritates me no end.  “If people think I’ll cower or take a backwards step due to their fake news criticism they’ve got another thing coming.”

It's THINK not THING - they've got another "think" coming.  The sentence makes structural sense with the second "think" at the end of the sentence and no sense when the word "thing" is used.  Also, Peter Dutton and his racism grinds my gears too.

The amount of AFL and cricket talk that creeps onto my Twitter timeline despite how many words and hashtags I've muted.

Whoah. As much as it makes me feel ill to be in the same camp as Dutton on anything, I've honestly always thought it was "thing" and had absolutely no idea what you were going on about until I Googled it just now.

I stand corrected, but that way of using "think" as a noun makes the "correct" way sound very strange to me and it'll take some effort to change over

When newspapers report a chess game, they don't show you the final move. They show you the position ten moves from the end because that is the most dramatic situation... The moment of the goal is not particularly interesting. What happens just before the goal: that is much more interesting.

^ I also thought it was 'thing'. There you go.

Something that I find baffling and also gear grinding: People taking videos of the buskers in Pitt St mall.
