Speech pathology student numbers soar at SCU

The number of domestic applications for the undergraduate speech pathology course at Southern Cross University have increased 79 per cent compared to the same time last year.

Former coroner David Heilpern’s confession last week that he mistakenly recorded a death as from ‘onanism’ rather than aneurism (damn you, autocorrect!) is hilarious. There would be worse ways to go, I would think, including from the COVID Delta variant.

More importantly, David addressed the excessive onanism practised by those who hold to conspiracy narratives (‘theories’ is a word more suited to hard science) that contend the bulk of ICU doctors, epidemiologists and legal officers are serving a sinister global crackdown on human rights.

I suggest more people could choose to read David’s piece instead of the ravings of those with a degree in YouTube. It is still available online at https://bit.ly/2YIYWZD.

On a lighter note, the US writer Dorothy Parker (1893–1967) called her canary Onan because he ‘spilled his seed upon the ground’.
