If I claim that there is a pink unicorn flying in orbit 200km above the earth surface, you cannot prove me wrong. You can say there no evidence, but I can easily claim you just haven found it yet. So “there no evidence” is the closest it can reasonably come to “proving” it wrong.

There no denying the potency and inherent potential in Danilova voice, whether she deadpanning malevolent moods, wallowing up a banshee wail of tender loneliness or breathing spectral whispers over minimalist passages of pensive melodrama.

Offer her a smile. Give her encouragement. Listen in silence. The shot missed, leaving nothing but a gunpowder graze on Mr Smart cheek but the judge decided that Magee should hang.First, Magee was a Roman Catholic and would therefore need to see a priest before he died, but there seems to have been no Catholic priest in the colony of South Australia in 1838. The judiciary pondered this problem for a day or so before deciding that a local tradesman fellmonger or blacksmith, the record does not say would have to do (Magee reportedly agreed to this arrangement, not, one supposes, that he had much choice).The second problem was more serious: besides having no Catholic priest, the colony had no executioner.Again, the judiciary pondered. The sheriff name was mentioned, but given he had also been the intended victim of Magee poorly timed shot, this was considered and so the job was put to tender.Who, now, would take five pounds to execute Michael Magee?Nobody came forward.Who now will take ten pounds to execute this man?Still no takers.By the day of the hanging it was a Wednesday all of Adelaide was agog with curiosity.
