ARMED men are holding 40 to 50 people hostage at a cafe in Martin Place in Sydney (http://www.news.com.au/national/a-man-is-holding-several-people-hostage-at-martin-place-cafe/story-fncynjr2-1227156241649)

There are reports that two gunman have taken hostages, some of which are standing with their hands up at the windows in the popular Lindt chocolate shop, which has two or three entrances. There is also a black and white flag being held up in a window. It is believed to be the Black Standard, a jihadist flag.

Lindt Australia CEO Steve Loane told news.com.au he believes there are 40 to 50 people inside the cafe, including customers and staff.

A 2GB spokesman confirmed to news.com.au that sources had informed them that the gunman claimed there are devices all over the city and they wanted to speak to the Prime Minister live on radio.

However, 2GB radio host Ray Hadley said on air that the gunman had made no demands, but told police he had complete control over the city.

The news reports on CNN were saying "we shouldn't use the term lone wolf, let's call him a bad actor"....huh? bad actor just sounds dumb.

Gunman dead and two hostages.

My guess is the location was chosen because it was opposite a television station.

"we shouldn't use the term lone wolf ...

That's not a bad point actually. The media here started referring to a "king hit" as a "coward punch" recently

Wasn't it always called a 'sucker punch' previously? I thought a 'king hit' related to cannabis.

Between that and the crazy bitch who murdered her entire family in Cairns, that had to have been a shit week.

It has been pretty shit.


This guy, the farmer who found the trio, is my hero of the year. What a fucking legend.

And the father of the missing boys deserves credit too.

The 54-year-old farmer, a father to three adult children, jumped on his quad bike armed with “bickies, water and a few sandwiches” and circled the entrances to Expedition National Park.

What're "bickies?"

We should ban Christmas.

Bikkies are biscuits.

You can put Vegemite on them and feed them to your pet kangaroo.

UK-style biscuits (cookies) or US-style biscuits (pastry)?

Ahhh, time to get technical with these things!

There are three types. If it is made from dough it is a biscuit. If it's made from dough but contains other things like choc chips, it is a cookie. If it is made from a brittle pastry it's a cracker.

As far as I know these terms are not region specific.
