I've been throwing out triangular bandages from our workplace first aid kit when they apparently go off after about 2 years.

Does it matter? As long as people believe that they do, the manufacturers are happy.

Probably the sterility of the bandages isnt as effective after a period of time and the company would rather not be sued.

More anecdotal stuff, but trust me, it's true. Car keys on the table.

Mid level manager at work who migrated here from South Africa several years ago. "The trouble all started when apartheid ended." No, his surname is not Bolt, but he is similar in many respects except that he talks much faster and louder. Wouldn't surprise me if he had a KKK outfit in his wardrobe.

Give cherry tomatoes a go, last bush I had fruited continuously for 12 months and are reasonably pest and trouble free. My sister grows ox heart tomatoes? (She refers to them as uglies, they are) by far the tastiest, in my view.
Do the same as you with lettuce and just planted for the first time some corn, so a WIP. Also climbing cucumbers.
Fresh chilies freeze well. As does Rosemary curry leaves, lemon grass, ginger and Kaffir lime leaves (always bung one or two into the rice steamer makes a difference).
Unwanted coriander roots also get the freezer treatment, for stock or soup, not much is wasted at our place.

I've tried cherry tomatoes, I've tried all sorts of varieties but I did read somewhere that you need to rotate them around the garden or they won't grow as well in the same spot year after year so maybe that's the problem. Cherry tomatoes are my favourites by the way, very sweet and tasty in a salad.

I don't like freezing chillies - dried is easier to store and you can dry them easily in the summer sun. Never tried climbing cucumbers, do they need much of a trellis? I really like fresh cucumber, it's really nice in a salad - might have to give them a try.

And I HATE coriander so no dice there I'm afraid.

The cucumbers do need a trellis, I use a section of rigid fence panel, about 900 high and two star pickets.
Almost Any literature recommends rotating crops.
I’m going to try some parsley for tabouli, a favourite, but I HATE cooked parsley. Tastes like smeg.

You can trellis cucumbers, but I don’t routinely.

If you can find them (or import seed like I did) Armenian cucumbers are some of the best. Long, beautiful thin skin, I don’t generally each cucumbers fresh (I mostly grow pickling cucumbers, yes, imported seed), but the Armenian cucumbers I will cheerfully eat fresh.

Another cucumber/melon that I imported to grow, but is now readily available off the seed shelf in Bunnings is Kiwano aka African horned cucumber. Fantastic fruity almost banana flavour, makes great fresh eating product, or in salsas and smoothies.

While mentioning melons, it will need a trellis, but also now available through Bunnings I notice the other day is the Japanese Sakata melon a fantastic small, white melon.

You want to try making hot sauce, it depends on what fits in the garden, some seasons I'll grow nearly 100 plants, sometimes up to maybe 20 varieties, and 4-5 of plants of each.

All families annuums, chinense, baccatums, everything from Carolina Reapers, through Scorpions, Bhuts, Bonnets, Aji, Bird's Eye, Habanero, Jalapeno (some years 10-20 plants at a time), Aleppo, Cayenne, Korean Peppers (which I grow, dry and powder for making Kim Chi), Japanese Peppers, down to even Paprika (genuine Hungarian imported seed).

Some varieties I'll dry, but it's rare, others like Jalapeno I'll pickle and/or smoke (making Chipotle and similar).

Discussions often take a tangential angle to the original post.
I’ve found this one particularly interesting.
However, in the interest of harmony and repairing my reputation, I offer an apology to your clearly fragile sensibilities.

I'm well aware that tyrants like Dan 'Mugabe' Andrews and his sycophants would prefer I be locked up.

In all honesty 100000s of Victorians will be moving interstate in the next 12 months, and it probably accelerate if he wins the State election next year (that's if it's even held).

When you read about the number of lives lost to gun crime in the US per year it is just astounding.

I have a friend in the US and their little girl (at the time) had just left Sandy Hook School in the summer before the shooting there. That was a massively horrific day, and despite being out of the school at the time I don't think they or their daughter have ever come to terms with what happened that day.

We were talking a few years ago and my friend was talking about their daughter needing to attend an 'active shooter drill' at her school and how difficult it was for her to do that, given Sandy Hook. They were positively astounded when I told them that we just don't have such drills in Australia. My friend was things like 'well how will they know what to do if someone comes to the school with a gun?' It was incomprehensible to them that my sister takes her daughter (and every other parent takes their children) to school everyday and no one in the families hold even the slightest fear that one day the kids won't be coming home because of a shooting at the school.

They asked if the teachers were armed or if we had armed security - WTF? I said 'They're school kids, not a cash payroll.'

These US friends have 'been through a shooting', of sorts, and they just more or less expect that the experience is common everywhere. Americans in general have almost like an odd sort of delusion, they have all of these shootings, sadly, almost literally 'all the time' and they just sort of accept that this is normal, like it happens everywhere.

If you ever wonder how an average DPRK resident would react to seeing a western supermarket full of food, or an Apple store, or the real internet for the first time, find an American that's never left America (that's most of them) and tell them that nearly no other country in the World fears mass shootings anywhere, especially not in schools and look at their disbelief and bewilderment. Better yet, tell them that it was a 'Conservative government' in Australia that enacted the gun laws that generally make Australia so safe today - and that it really only took one 'big' event to do it.

They just don't get it that 'their normal' just isn't normal.

I just went back and rewatched that after initially watching when posted, because I can pay more attention today I noticed the bit at about 4:50...

'We have so many people there is just no way to prevent it' (yeah there is), 'we really cannot do anything' (yeah, you can), 'we just cannot figure out what to do, there's just really no way to prevent this' (Americans are so dumb) - and yet he at least acknowledges that 'it's really only happening here'.

Then lists:
  - Wide spread availability of guns
  - Very lax gun safety regulation
  - Fetishising of gun culture

The top two are relatively easy to fix, so long as you have the will to do so, the third is harder, but should largely be treated as being irrelevant, especially after the first two are fixed.

Maybe they could start by just coming to terms with the fact that if a 'hunter' needs a TEC-9, MP5 or any other high rate automatic, even semi automatic weapon like these, what that hunter really needs is a new hobby or occupation, because 'hunting' clearly isn't for them. The thing they really, really need though is a psych evaluation.
