ghost prisoners.

What about the ghost prisoners?

The men in Guantánamo represent fewer than 1% of the 27,000 prisoners being held by the US beyond the rule of law, says Clive Stafford Smith

Obama has yet to speak of the missing 99.1%. It is not clear how much he even knows about them. With America at war in two countries, new captives are being taken every day. They aren't coming to Cuba, so where are they being held?

Many are in Iraq and Afghanistan, but a smattering end up in US detention in Bosnia, Djibouti, Ethiopia, Kosovo and in 21st-century "prison hulks" off Diego Garcia and Somalia. The most miserable are held in proxy prisons in Egypt, Jordan and Morocco.

There is plenty of commitment to continue this project. Obama will keep Bush's secretary of defence and perhaps even his CIA director in place.


A prisoner is led to his cell in Guantanamo Bay
The US says pictures are 'not representative'
The US Government has released photographs of the Taliban and al-Qaeda suspects held at its prison camp in Cuba which show them being subjected to sensory deprivation.

The prisoners are shown kneeling down, wearing goggles, ear muffs, surgical masks and heavy gloves.

The chief medical officer of the human rights group, Amnesty International, Jim West, said the photographs were reminiscent of torture methods used in eastern Europe in the 1970's * ***************************************************************************************************************************************** Nazi Punishment Cell.

To be poor , committing a small crime, a black slave, a hippie who has three marijuana cigarettes, a Jew, a Gypsy, a socialist, a homosexual, a social democrat or an Iraqi fighting against a foreign (U.S.) invader or a Falan Gong believer....the result is the same: somewhere some government will lock them up and use them for experiments, torture them or kill them by punishment. Even to be suffering from mental illness could land a person into gas chamber or chained to the wall on bread and water. In recent times experiments were made on Canadian mental patients without their consent using mind-bending drugs. These experiments were funded by the U.S. government for the C.I.A. and U.S. Army . The "doctor" in charge was Penfield and they have named an institute after him in Montreal. * Amnesty International ************************************************************************************** note: Firefox has timidly omitted illustrations of a Muslim turbanned man and some camels.

******************************************************************************************************************************* I was irate for many years that my Aussie citizenship was taken away from me when I became a Canadian citizen. I thought I could have two. A Maltese or Italian can have both.
  • I am a descendant of First Fleeters and was born in Australia. My aunt Ida (Bonnie) O'Keefe had her citizenship taken from her when she married a Filipino in 1947. The bloody cheek of the Australian Governments!!
  • The only way the tide of "foreigners" can be excluded is for Australian women to have some children, instead of dressing and acting like what muslim mullahs would call them "immoral, underdressed, self-centered, libertines."
  • Australian men should spend more time humping their wives or girlfriends instead of each other.( It must be so exciting to be Gay) That's one excitement I don't need.
  • More than twenty years ago in Bali I saw Australians having sex in the open on Kuta beach, within view of the local population, an insult to local customs and morals.
Kuta beach, Bali. It was no surprise to me that Australian tourists were targetted years later at that same place. This horrible act against mostly young Australians must be remembered and deplored.. Still, Aussies going into other cultures should realize these cultures can be violated and cause much anger. Australians should realize that the world consists of many peoples and we all have to get along together, hard though it sometimes is. If the aim is for "pure" Australians, then we should all apply for Aboriginal citizenship and be able to sing a corroboree chant, eat a goanna and walk thirty miles through the desert without water.
  • Still, it is a good idea that citizens- to- be know more about Australian culture and history( the real ones though and not the sanitized varieties taught in schools.)
  • They should know why Aussie troops took so few prisoners in Turkey in the First World War and so few Japanese in the Second World War.(They got shot, both the enemy wounded and those who surrendered.) Italians and Germans were treated more carefully.
  • The aim at excluding groups with fanatical fundamentalist views is laudable. Please exclude fundamentalist Christians who do a great deal of harm to their children and others by spreading false assumptions and downright brain-washing lies. Maybe the teachings of Baptists and Catholics should be examined also by an Australian Board of Inquisition.
  • Yes, the right of free speech and assembly should be subject to what the Australian Government considers suitable for Australian Culture.
  • And while they are about it, the government might ponder why tax-payers should fork out for the education and care of children deficient physically or mentally? world clock printable calendar See the First Fleet voyage in action on chart: WORLD NEWS HEADLINES
The pioneers ate what they could get. This meant government rations, flour, dried peas, salt -beef and damper( A type of simple bread.) They soon learned to augment these rations with wallabies, possums, sheep and (later) rabbits. They usually had a kitchen garden with carrots cabbages and potatoes and a few hens. Still, they were much better off than the city poor in London. Transportation did them a favour. Many Aussies had a free sea voyage to the promised land, and lots work when they got there. (plus a ball and chain, in many cases). At least they did not have black hoods over their heads when transported or electro-shock to their genitals as in Guantanamo.

Boofhead had a vacation for a few months in a government mental institution. He found it pretty interesting and used to watch what was happening outside along the street below. One morning he saw a baker's cart pass by and the horse left a pile of manure. Soon a man came out of the suburban row house on the other side of the street with a shovel and broom. He proceeded to gather up the manure. "Heh, mister!" called Boofhead from the window above. "What are you doing?" The man looked up at the caller and said tersely. "Well I am going to put this horse manure on my strawberries." "Oh" Said Boofhead "You ought to come in here. We put ice-cream on ours." ************************************************************** After Boofhead had been in the institution for a few months, his case was reviewed. It was noted by the panel of doctors and staff, that Boofhead did not give very much trouble, but the medication he was given did not seem to affect him. He developed a liking for the candy-coated pills and would ask other patients if he might have some of theirs. As a matter of fact he seemed to be enjoying it in medical custody. He ate all his meals with gusto, even the tapioca pudding other patients refused. He would sit for hours watching the one T.V. children's channel that was permitted. Yes he had settled in. "What is Mr B. here for anyway?"Asked the superintendent to the panel members. "It seems that he wandered into a ward one afternoon with a pizza delivery and did not leave again." said the head nurse. "We accepted him as a voluntary, because he looked rather weird and we needed some volunteers for pre-frontal lobotomy." "Oh, he had the operation then?" asked the superintendent. "No," said the head nurse,"there was a problem. Initial examination could not determine where the pre-frontal lobes were located." "Very interesting case. I would like to look into the matter" stated the pathologist. "No chance of that. The patient is in perfect health," added the physiotherapist. He did thirty push-ups this morning and did not seem at all tired. Then he did another ten standing on his head. Very demoralizing for the rest of the patients, most of whom can only manage one or two." "Hmmm," mused the superintendent. "We'll have to get rid of him, I'm afraid. He does not fit the criteria here." The whole panel nodded in concurrence. "The trouble is, he is in the system and needs to be cured or kept indefinitely." The office manager said. "We have to show he was suffering from something and also that we have actually cured him, or the medical insurance won't pay." "Yes, of course.. Let's see. That should be easy. Let us dub it "Prefrontal Deficiency Syndrome." "Great idea!" There was a murmur of assent round the table. The brain-surgeon suddenly looked happy. "I could slip another couple of prefrontal lobes into the chap tomorrow afternoon. The ops room is free since old Mrs Jennings died during shock treatment and won't need the repeat she was scheduled for." The pathologist voiced an idea."Why waste Mrs Jennings prefrontals. She's on ice at the moment and I could extract them in a jiffy. I can patch over the incision, and the family will never know." "Right on" agreed the surgeon. The junior medical assistant, who was at the panel conference on sufferance queried."But will it bloody work? It has never been done before has it?" He looked worried. "That is not the point" admonished the superintendent sternly "It might work and if is does, it could be a breakthrough. We could write up a series of papers for the Psychiatric Journal and get lots of future funding. Why, we might start a new medical industry. Let us adjourn, all. "Here, here" from everyone. "Is fish on today in the cafeteria?" asked the ward nurse. Ric Accommodation is a bit hard to find in Sydney.

Woman jailed for testicle attack.
A woman who ripped off her ex-boyfriend's testicle with her bare hands has been sent to prison.

Amanda Monti, 24, flew into a rage when Geoffrey Jones,

37, rejected her

advances at the end of a house party, Liverpool Crown Court heard. She pulled off his left testicle and tried to swallow it, before spitting it out.

A friend handed it back to Mr Jones saying: "That's yours." Monti admitted wounding and was jailed for

two-and-a-half years. 'Pulled hard' Sentencing Monti, Judge Charles James said it was "a very serious injury"

and that Monti was not acting in self-defence. The court heard that Mr Jones had ended his long-term

but "open relationship"

with Monti towards the end of May last year. The pair remained on good terms and on 30 May she

picked him up from a

party in Crosby and went back for drinks with friends

at Mr Jones's house. An argument ensued and Mr Jones said there was a

struggle between them. In his statement, Mr Jones said she grabbed his genitals

and "pulled hard".

I am in no way a violent person
Amanda Mont

He added: "That caused my underpants to come off and

I found I was completely naked and in excruciating pain." The court heard that a friend saw Monti put Mr Jones's testicle

into her mouth and try to swallow it. She choked and spat it back into her hand before the friend

grabbed it and

gave it back to Mr Jones. Doctors were unable to re-attach

the organ. In a letter to the court, Monti said she was sorry for what she

had done. She said: "It was never my intention to cause harm to Geoff and

the fact that I have

caused him injury will live with me forever. I am in no way

a violent person." The letter added: "I have challenged myself to explain

what has happened but still I just

cannot remember. This has caused much anguish to me

and will do for the rest of my life."

An onlooker remarked that it was a good thing Ms. Monti had

mislaid her dentures

that morning,otherwise she might have bitten off his dick as well.

Let that be a warning to all men who refuse to have sex

with a woman,

no matter how fat or ugly!

I recall waiting outside this outback public toilet in Central Australia. Hearing someone or something grunting inside,(It could be a crocodile or a wild camel or just a constipated stockman) I was reluctant to poke my nose in, so I used the ghostgum tree instead. Looks a bit like an urinal anyway.(Ric) Cairns Beach (I slept there once or twice and was bitten by sand crabs and sandflies. Bluey and Curley cartoon...from my memories. currency lads aussie songs Goanna is supposed to taste like chicken. It eats carcasses of bush animals and is teeming with germs. It is a smaller relative of the Komodo Dragon of Indonesia. There were very large ones in Australia when the Aborigines first came, but the largest ones being easier to catch, were soon eaten to extinction, while the small ones ( about five feet) were agile enough to keep up their population. The Aboriginals would climb trees to get them. Red Bellied Black Snake (Paeudechis porphriacus) I would

often be running along a bush path and narrowly miss stepping on one of these reptiles. Somehow I would jump up as an automatic response and the "evil" snake would quickly slither into ferns and brush. Hair on the nape of my nape would stand up in my alarm. You should never go after a snake with stick or stone. That is when you are most likely to be bitten. My dog Peter, an Alsation, would want to chase them. Down along Brown's Creek he caught one once and tossed it in the air, managing to kill it by biting it at the back of the head. He was lucky. After it had stopped writhing around (It could still be alive) he would not go away from it so I put it in a hessian-bag with a stick and carried it home to show mum and dad, with Peter excited and triumphant sniffing often at the snake in the bag. They were not impressed. "Leave snakes alone, Siddie. You both could have been killed!" The snake was five foot long. I showed it to the neighbours' kids and enhanced my bush reputation. One mother though, told her boy "Don't go out in the bush with Siddie Williams. He 's a dangerous little bugger!" (I was nine.)

Vegemite, our Australian Delicious Sludge Residue!

With an excrementally poignant taste of savour faire. This is our national drug next to beer in popularity. If an Aussie male had to choose between a vegemite spread and a naked girl with her legs spread, he might have some trouble deciding. The one reminds him of the other. Probably he would take both with a dash of barbecue sauce. .From this comes the famous Aussie expression "Put a bit of meat in your Barbie." Wherever an Aussie goes, China, India or Spain the first thing he asks is "Got any vegemite and emmachisit?" An American looks at it and says "yukky!" A Frenchman exclaims "merde!" But the Aussie munches his vegemite sandwich (though it looks just like turd .)

Some lovers of Vegemite like to experiment, mixing it with ice-cream and tomato sauce. Others enhance the flavour with a dash of cod liver oil. Whatever you do, don't get confused with a similar looking but far inferior product, Mamighte, (Women's Liberation wish to name it Ma-might-not) which is made in Pommieland and is reputed to be made from the offal of mad cows.

Happy Vegemites Still happy: The stars of the Vegemite ad reunite for its 50th anniversary. (L-R) Trisha Cavanagh, Gary Kermond, Kevin Shephard, Kylie Donald, Cheryl Jarrett & Margaret Hole with a picture of the late Barry Coleman, and Barry's brother

The Chinese are working on a similar product, though made from the putrid ooze of leftover body parts, after they have harvested for sale the organs of political prisoners and Falon Gong (those people they call expendable sub-humans or "Dung Kok Poo". They g0t the idea from their Hundred year-old duck eggs, which are made by putting nearly hatched eggs in a dung heap and waiting a hundred years and then having it for breakfast with bacon from a hundred year year old pig, similarly prepared.

If you find all this disgusting don't you find what they do to prisoners also disgusting? If you do, then protest about it, because every day young "criminals" are being injected with a paralyzing drug, their body parts removed, while alive and dying and then they are shot in the back of the head.

I feel I could apply my expertise to the interesting experiments the Chinese government is undertaking (joke: ha ha ha) with objectional citizens. I am open to offers for employment. Perhaps the United States could employ me in one of their many experimental facilities, such as Guantanamo, or in the preparation of anthrax spores which they have been using for anti-terrorist propaganda. I believe there is a great opportunity to start up such facilities in Australia also, and I could be a great helpfe to their government and Herr Howard(Luckily not now prime-minister of Australia, but merely a hen-pecked stay- at- home retiree) who is on the Recht Track. Heil!!! The fact is Herr Howard was booted out last year.

Move elephants into Australia, scientist proposes

Feb. 1, 2012

and World Science staff

Aus­tral­ia may need an in­fu­sion of ele­phants and oth­er large mam­mals to solve its per­sist­ent ec­o­log­i­cal and wild­fire prob­lems, a sci­ent­ist pro­poses.

Ecol­o­gist Da­vid Bow­man of the Uni­vers­ity of Tas­ma­nia in Aus­tral­ia cites out-of-con­trol fires and bur­geon­ing fe­ral-animal popula­t­ions as quan­daries af­flict­ing the Land Down Un­der. Both could be solved by in­tro­duc­ing large mam­mals, as well as pay­ing ab­o­rig­i­nal hunters to con­trol the fe­ral an­i­mals and re­store the old prac­tice of patch burn­ing, he ar­gues. Patch burn­ing is a form of con­trolled burn­ing in­tend­ed to clean out and re­new bio­lo­gical re­sources.

“I real­ize that there are ma­jor risks as­so­ci­at­ed with what I am propos­ing,” as any tin­ker­ing with the en­vi­ron­ment can lead to un­planned con­se­quenc­es, said Bow­ma­n. “But the usu­al ap­proaches to ma­n­ag­ing these is­sues aren’t work­ing.”

Bow­man de­scribes his idea in this week’s is­sue of the re­search jour­nalNa­ture.

Feb. 7 will mark the three-year an­ni­ver­sa­ry of “Black Sat­ur­day,” when nearly 200 peo­ple died in a mas­sive fire­storm in south­ern Aus­tral­ia. Fires are a con­stant con­cern in the con­ti­nent, said Bow­ma­n, but so are its thriv­ing popula­t­ions of fe­ral pigs, camels, hors­es and cat­tle, among oth­ers.

Bow­man pro­poses to ma­n­age Aus­tral­ia’s trou­bled ec­o­sys­tem by in­tro­duc­ing beasts such as ele­phants, rhi­noc­er­os and even Ko­modo drag­ons. These would help con­sume flam­ma­ble grasses and con­trol fe­ral-animal popula­t­ions, he ar­gues.

The larg­est liv­ing land mam­mal na­tive to Aus­tral­ia is the red kan­ga­roo, which as an adult weighs about as much as an av­er­age ma­n. Larg­er mam­mals used to roam the con­ti­nent—such as a hippo-sized mar­su­pi­al re­lat­ed to the wom­bat and called di­pro­to­don, from the Great Ice Age—but they are no more.

The de­lib­er­ate in­tro­duc­tion by hu­ma­ns of po­pu­lations of over­sized, non-na­tive mam­mals to a new conti­nent would be un­prec­e­dent­ed in modern times. One group, though, has pro­posed in­tro­duc­ing large Af­ri­can mam­mals in­to the Great Plains of the Un­ited States, for some­what diff­erent rea­sons than those moti­vating Bow­man.

Carol Baxter is my distant cousin. She has not directly contributed to this weblog, and has not ever in fact acknowledged its existence, but because of the valuable information I received from reading her website about our family, I am very indebted to her.
Another family website helped me considerably. This was "Our Williams Story" by another distant cousin, Kieran Williams
Our Williams Story
I am heartened by the many emerging websites about the descendants of William Nash and Maria Haynes.
Then there are the many threads from Monaro Pioneers.
Thank you for all the sources.
I am hoping that when I am no longer able to continue (being nearly 79) that someone else wll pick up the ball and continue my blog.Of course I have included my political views and my non-religious attitudes because they are part of me and readers do not have to accept them, but may actually learn a little from them.

On 25th April 2010 Stephen Hawking, leading academic and cosmologist, told the Sunday Times: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach.” He also points out that making contact with aliens could be very risky, stating: “If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”

Gropecunt Lane

Gropecunt Lane was a name used in Oxford, London and other Englishtowns and cities in the Middle Ages for streets where prostitutes conducted their business. The name derives from cunt, the Middle English term forfemale genitalia, and the act of groping. There was also a Gropecunt Lane inDublin, Ireland near where the Savoy Cinema is now. Later sensibilities changed many names of streets bearing this name to more polite variations.

In London, the street that was Gropecunt Lane was near the present-day site of the Barbican Centre in the City of London. The street was called Grub Street in the 18th century, but renamed Milton Street in 1830 . Another street with a similar history in Southwark is Horselydown Lane ("whores lie down"), which is just to the south of Tower Bridge, and was also the site of the famousAnchor Brewhouse.

We come in Third with Williams.


is a patronymic form of the name William that originated in medieval England[2] and later came to be extremely popular in Wales. The meaning is derived from son or descendant of Guillemin, the French form of William. Derived from an Old French given name with Germanicelements; will = desire, will; and helm = helmet, protection.[3] It is the second most common surname in Wales and the third most common surname in the whole of the United Kingdom, the third most common in the United States of America and Australia and the fifth most common inNew Zealand.[4]

Old Harry Williams was asked how was it that the long list of Williams lead by far those of Nash over the last couple of hundred years.

"Well, let's see.Them Nashes they was more posh and they kept the family bible, so we lot had nothing to read at night.There was no T.V. in them days, and we didn't want to waste candles, so we used to all jump in bed together and make more Williams's."

Australia. The first fleet sailed from England in 1787 carrying marine William Nash and his common law wife Maria Haynes. They were the progenitors of an extensive Nash family in Australia. Another early settler was Andrew Nash. He had acquired the Woolpack Inn in Parramatta in 1821 and became well-known for the prowess of his racehorses. A later settler from Wiltshire was James Nash. He discovered gold along the Mary river in Queenland and helped precipitate the second Australian gold rush.

There were also Nash convicts in Australia. Some thrived; Robert Nash, transported on the Albemarle in 1791; John Nash on the Eleanor in 1831; and Michael Nash from Limerick, on the Rodney in 1851.

This is my niece in the Philippines who
needs serious attention from some sincere young man.

Neither here nor there.

If a man was on an escalator, but walking back down it and the elevator was located in a revolving restaurant on a large airliner going in a southerly direction and the earth was revolving on its axis and at the same time was travelling in an elliptical path around the sun, which was travelling around the galaxy, which was many movements was the man travelling in?

Wild man of North Australia.

I met Michael (Tarzan) Fomenko(shown here at 81 years) son of a Russian Princess when I was 18 and he was twenty. He was a handsome young man. I was in love with his sister Nina Fomenko, who was gracious to me but held my ardour at arms' length. In later years I met her in North Queensland where she and her husband Brian Patrick Donnellan were cutting cane. They had no mattress to sleep on, so I bought them one. Nina was always beautiful.

Toonoom Falls
Situated in the heart of Royal National Park to the south of Sydney, Toonoum Falls is a pretty, 5 metre high waterfall alongside Sir Bertram Steven Drive not far from the Garie turnoff. The photo shows the falls in flood.
Location: Royal National Park.

In the fifties, I lived close to here in a rock shelter once used by Aborigines. I used to swim in this creek a little further down the hill. My family thought I was crazy and I probably was, but life here on the edge of the National Park was idyllic if you could bear the flies, mosquitoes, snakes and centipedes.. (Ric)

*The Australian Lyre Bird is the world's best imitator; able to mimic the calls of 15 different species of birds in their locality and string the calls into a melody. Also been known to mimic the sound mobile phones.

*The echidna is such a unique animal that it is classified in a special class of mammals known asmonotremes, which it shares only with the platypus. The echidna lays eggs like a duck but suckles its young in a pouch like a kangaroo. For no apparent reason, it may decide to conserve energy by dropping its body temperature to 4 degrees and remain at that temperature from 4 to 120 days. Lab experiments have shown that the echidna is more intelligent that a cat and it has been seen using its spikes, feet and beaks to climb up crevices like a mountaineer edging up a rock chimney.

*Purple wallaby - The Purple-neck Rock Wallaby [Petrogale Purpureicollis], inhabits the Mt Isa region in Northwest Queensland. The Wallaby secretes a dye that transforms its face and neck into colours ranging from light pink to bright purple.

*The Fierce Snake or Inland Taipan has the most toxic venom of any snake. Maximum yield recorded (for one bite) is 110mg. That would probably be enough to kill over 100 people or 250,000 mice.

*The Wombat deposits square poos on logs, rocks and even upright sticks that it uses tomark its territory.

*A 10kg Tasmanian Devil is able to exert the same biting pressure as a 40kg dog. It can also eat almost a third of its body weight in a single feeding.

*Australia is the smallest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent in the world. It is the only country which is also a whole continent.

*Over 90% of Australia is dry, flat and arid. Almost three-quarters of the land cannot support agriculture in any form.

*A baby kangaroo at the time of its birth measures 2 centimetres.

birth of joey

*Kangaroos need very little water to survive and are capable of going for months without drinking at all. When they do need water, they dig 'wells' for themselves; frequently going as deep as three or four feet. These 'kangaroo pits' are a common source of water for other animals living in the kangaroo's environment.

Kangaroo attacks dog, man. ^

*A kangaroo being chased by a dog may jump into a dam. If the dog gives chase, the kangaroo may turn towards the dog, then use its paws to push the dogs head underwater in order to drown it.

*Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards, and are on the Australian coat of arms for that reason.

*A monotreme is a animal that lays eggs and suckles its young. The world's only monotremes are the platypus and the echidna.

*The male platypus has a poisonous spine that can kill a dog and inflict immense pain on a human.

*When a specimen of the platypus was first sent to England, it was believed the Australians had played a joke by sewing the bill of a duck onto a rat.

*Box Jelly fish - The box jellyfish is considered the world's most venomous marine creature. The box jellyfish has killed more people in Australia than stonefish, sharks and crocodiles combined.

*The Sydney Funnelweb spider is considered the world's most deadly spider. It is the only spider that has killed people in less than 2 hours. Its fangs are powerful enough to bite through gloves and fingernails. The only animals without immunity to the funnelweb's venom are humans and monkeys.

*Lung fish - Queensland is home to lung fish, a living fossil from the Triassic period 350 million years ago.


*It is estimated that by the time transportation ended in 1868, 40 per cent of Australia's English-speaking population were convicts.
*A census taken in 1828 found that half the population of NSW were Convicts, and that former Convicts made up nearly half of the free population.

*In 2007, it was estimated that 22 per cent of living Australians had a convict ancestor.

*Convicts were not sent to Australia for serious crimes. Serious crimes, such as murder, rape, or impersonating an Egyptian were given the death sentence in England.

*Crimes punishable by transportation included recommending that politicians get paid, starting a union, stealing fish from a river or pond, embezzlement, receiving or buying stolen goods, setting fire to underwood, petty theft, or being suspected of supporting Irish terrorism.

* Alcohol- It has been reported that the first European settlers in Australia drank more alcohol per head of population than any other community in the history of mankind.

* Police force - Australia's first police force was a band of 12 of the most well behaved Convicts.

* Mass moonings - In 1832, 300 female Convicts at the Cascade Female Factory mooned the Governor of Tasmania during a chapel service. It was said that in a "rare moment of collusion with the Convict women, the ladies in the Governor's party could not control their laughter.
