Other stuff

I am appalled by Australia's treatment of refugees and people seeking asylum.

  • Gifts for Manus and Nauru run a crowdfund to provide phone credit to refugees in offshore detention on Manus Island and Nauru.
  • The Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC) put together this document on Myths, Facts + Solutions in 2013, still relevant today.

A couple of other things:

  • I used to spend some of my spare time spent writing songs. (Or maybe I just have less spare time now than I did before?)
  • Catherine Sophie Greenhill is believed to have been the first person to be resuscitated using electric shock. She fell out of a window in London aged three on 16 July 1774 and was pronounced dead, then revived by a member of the Humane Society, using a portable electrostatic generator. She even has the same middle initial as me.
