Looks like a whole lot of trouble for flinging a piece of lead in a 'forward but otherwise random' direction.

Depends on distance, mostly. And size/ number of shot, 'buckshot' if it connected could be a real hassle. War is the pinnacle of Stupid Human Tricks. smh.

We've got to stick to the important matters, or we'll never get anything done. I mean geeze, they didn't even specify which kind of rhino!! I mean there are 5 living species White, Black, Indian, Javan, and Sumatran, that range in size from 700 to 3200kg. All of which I've just learned from wikipedia in the last few minutes. Standards, dammit, we need STANDARDS!! :-D

"Earlier this month, a judge denied Navarro's request (https://abcnews.go.com/US/trump-aide-peter-navarro-sentenced-defying-jan-6/story?id=106653782) to remain out of prison while he appeals his contempt of Congress conviction. The Bureau of Prisons has not yet set a date for Navarro to report to prison."

If he "privately expresses" an opinion, why then must we be bludgeoned by it? Can't wait till I no longer need to know or care anything about .

This just in from WRPSA (World Rock Paper Scissors Association) a breakdown of different variations on the game: https://wrpsa.com/breaking-down-the-different-variations-of-rock-paper-scissors-played-across-the-world/

Toyota cars collecting and potentially sharing location data and personal information, Choice says, and it's not the only car brand facing privacy concerns (www.abc.net.au)

Rafi Alam from CHOICE told The World Today: “When we looked at Toyota’s privacy policy, we found that these Connected Services features will collect data such as fuel levels, odometer readings, vehicle location and driving data, as well as personal information like phone numbers and email addresses.”...

Thanks, that's helpful. I'm reluctantly considering purchasing a vehicle, possibly even relatively close to new. The ancient beater I drive when the bike won't do the job isn't subject to these issues, and might even be proof against an EMP. Tho' where the hell I'd get petrol in a post apocalyptic landscape is an as yet unanswered question. lol. I like the idea of the 'bells and whistles' of modern conveyances, and do so much in other spheres to limit corporate access that it makes sense to consider how to minimize in the case of a more modern car.

LoL, I must be living the 'life of Riley', then. My commute is less than a mile, and almost always by bike. And most of my errands, etc can be done by bike, as well. And yet the need for a car in our family is indeed extant.

More or less like that regarding work. And on weekends it's nice to go places, and/or have a vehicle to haul stuff. But that's not everyday. So yeah, common ownership of a vehicle for roadtrips, and/or hauling stuff would be an elegant solution.

I thought about your question, and did a search. Seems like key is above 16 C, hot and humid.

Here's an interactive map of Hardiness Zones in Australia:
https://www.plantmaps.com/interactive-australia-plant-hardiness-zone-map-celsius.php
It looks like only in the far North, unless you've got a big 'ol greenhouse.

You can get a started plant here:

Mur, looks like they are 'sold out' for now, but maybe you can find out when they get some going. Or maybe they will have other tips on finding yerba mate starts, growing, etc.

I bet a lot of us on m/YerbaMate would love to follow your project. :-D

I use a disc of some sort to cover the mate, for the shake. And I KNEW just what you were talking about.

I'll have to think about that. Mostly it seems I'm tootling around the house getting all the things done. Swinging thru the kitchen for a sip, as needed.
