  • The name TREWITS is the name given to a secret unit and stands for TEEN-REVOLUSIONERE INLIGTING TEIKEN SPAN which is Afrikaans for COUNTER REVOLUTIONARY TARGET TEAM. This unit was a top-secret unit headed by a Chairman who was a senior police officer from the Security Branch and had about 12 members represented by the police's Security Branch, The military's Department of Intelligence (DMI/AMI), The military's Department of Covert Operations(DCI/DKI) and the National Intelligence Agency (NIA). The unit operated at the highest level of the apartheid government and was tasked to identify certain enemies of the state both local and foreign and plan and operationally support their execution and elimination. Stephen Sander was a member of this unit from 1989 to 1991. This unit was also called Unit C4/C40 and brother unit on Vlakplaas was called Unit C1/C10.

  • Further note. Seeing as my childhood days are a fair bit distant, I have no idea whether young Australian kids still say this. And it's not an expression I've heard much in general usage this century.

    February 10, 2016

  • Australian National Dictionary Online has this:
    stacks on the mill
    In sporting contexts, a pile-up of players, usually on top of the ball. It was originally a schoolyard game, a call to children to pile in a heap on top of someone. The full cry in the Australian children’s game was ‘stacks on the mill, more on still!’ The phrase is now sometimes abbreviated to stacks on. ‘Stacks’ is a corruption of ‘sacks’, from an older British game ‘more sacks to the mill’.

  • Australianism for a children's game where people pile on top of one another. From 'stacks on the mill'.
    If you've seen what happens at a baseball game when a player hits a walkoff home run then his teammates all jump on him when he gets to home plate, that's probably a comparable kind of situation...maybe the American equivalent is dogpile?
    Typically in the playground it would just happen. Someone would fall over, someone else would yell out 'Stacks on Jamie!' and all the nearby kids would pile on.

    Used conversationally to note a situation where people are rapidly joining a movement or ganging up. eg.
    Person A: Hey, C has a big butt!
    Person B: Yep, mountain of lard.
    Person C: What is this, stacks on?!

  • Subirdia is the place many of us call home or work. Physically, it is a richly interwoven mixture of residential, commercial, and wilder land. Houses, allotments and gardens, derelict and vacant land, golf courses and other outdoor sports sites, cemeteries, schoolyards, highway and railway verges, municipal utility stations, business parks, and shopping centers occur among places dominated by natural vegetation such as greenways, river and stream corridors, parks and nature reserves, pipelines and powerlines, steep slopes, and quarries. In a variety of locales, natural vegetation constitutes one-third to two-thirds of subirdia. Functionally, subirdia is the confluence between city and country that promotes a mutual exchange of plants and animals. It is also a place where people from urban and rural cultures come together as neighbors, friends, and acquaintances. In so doing, we learn how varied is the human perception of nature.

  • It staggers me to contemplate the implications of our new lifestyle. We now live predominantly in a niche that was unknown only six thousand years ago! Generations of city people no long have the interest to live in the country and may truly struggle to survive doing so. The social customs, diet, climate, modes of communication, and transportation in the city would be as foreign to our ancient ancestors as theirs would be to us. We have evolved into a new ecological role with cultural barriers to our rural legacy. Evolutionary biologists might consider us well along the process called "anagenesis"—the evolution of a new species from its ancestors that results from the gradual accumulation of isolating differences over time. Certainly we are already culturally distinct from our ancestors, but most biologists would not consider this adequate to proclaim that we are truly a species apart from ancestral Homo sapiens. They would require more lasting distinctions that make our DNA incompatible with that of our ancestors.
