No, you don’t need photo ID.
Different documentation types have points/value associated with them. You need 100 pts of doco. One of the document types must be from a “primary” list which is a government product, although it could be any state/territory/federal government including a foreign passport (70pts).
But if you don’t want your mug shot associated the following is enough. Birth certificate (no photo, 70pts), electricity bill (20pts), phone bill (20pts).
Many “secondary” doc choices from non govt. orgs are acceptable, eg. banks, etc.
That said, they have pretty much everybody’s visage already so I imagine Face ID or Instagram could be added to streamline and simplify things, perhaps also create a source of income (jk). We, (EDS) were implementing facial recognition for passports (Aust. Customs) to speed entry way back in 2000. From memory getting Vista to work was a far bigger challenge.
… the money might be better spent figuring out how to create some sort of magnetic belt (braces) shielding, mimicking our one down here so they could just use COTS products like the rest of us, bonus taking COTS humans et al also. Although she’d probably see through such a cheap trick and so it remains medical experiments for the lot of you
So….. 128 Linguine, or thereabouts .. where are the other 5 bits
It’s hard enough to comprehend the implied relativistic anomaly of a single Alibaba delivery creating two (count them) craters when you quote ridiculous units of measurement.. I mean, FFS!
(Barbarella, Duran Duran .. I’m here all week, try the veal)
NASA has just started launching a few things from the Arnhem Space Centre in the Northern Territory, Australia.
Given AUKUS, the US defence base in Darwin (Chinese port) and the bloody great expanse (yes islands/people) of Pacific off to the right (east) perhaps Biden would allow Elon could relocate his shenanigans here.
Any RUD compliant starships will likely just land in the fields of hematite^ from whence they were borne, completing the circle
^actually, it’s several thousands of kilometres away, but Australia.. days drive mate :)
An interesting article, or response from a like minded regmind, would be to explain what current business problems these new fangled quantum computers are solving that traditional 1 and 0’s can’t. Or is it it a case of the blockchain replacing shekels, because we can and everybody mining their own cool shells on the beach is having an impact on the environment…
Aussie (Aussie, Aussie)
Ozzy was an ostrich
Plucka is a duck (not a chicken or a cow)
We’re also quite thoughtful and at times, respectful. My Australian mother in-law is technically Ukrainian given she was born in a Nazi camp in Poland after her mum was taken (lack of sons). She was also a fan of Red and Plucka
Not sure if I’m due a parrot … but, milo and nesquick are two distinctly different products. Nobody ever stuffed three spoonfuls of nesquick in their gob (and didn’t cough to death).. Milo on the other hand is eaten by the catering tin (it rarely sees milk).
People have been sticking chocolate in beer for ages and suggesting that a smooth merlot may have grown on the same side of a hill as a chocolate wrapper, it can be delicious.
Marketing it to kids is (always) pants though.
Let me google that for you
Looks like the navy is not releasing any info on its flight (altitude/speed/yada yada)...
I was given an iWatch as a gift, would never have considered it before.
It’s actually become the most useful Apple thing I have. I use it mainly as a wallet (tap and go pay), but it also allows me to read and send short messages, make quick calls, listen to music when exercising or in the car. It’s actually bloody useful and I find I don’t take my phone or physical wallet with me, or out of the backpack very often at all now.
Yes, I was surprised.
The health stuff (data) is interesting too, was quite surprised how my heart rate increases (doubles) with alcohol regardless of exertion or the multitude of heart meds I’m on.
He’s still considered a goose by most everybody, it’s just that there really isn’t any remotely good choices to had. I’m all for our trans Tasman cousins (NZ not Tas.) to rise up an overthrow our watery fowl overlords and install Jacinda, and their good sense and compassion.. that would be choice, bro :)
I’m even happy to say Jersey and call it a batch...
I’m just here for the headline
Maybe you’ll marry, maybe you won’t
Maybe you’ll have children, maybe you won’t
Maybe you’ll divorce at 40
Maybe you’ll dance the funky chicken on your 75th wedding anniversary
Whatever you do, don’t congratulate yourself too much, or berate yourself either. Your choices are half chance; so are everybody else’s
