DoSing Parliament? That would be entertaining.
Acts of civil disobedience are far more likely to be effective.
Shutting off the internet? If done deliberately they'd be breaching contracts left right and centre.
Hmmm, thinking. And wondering if my avatar will show up black.

Teach the controversy. This theory has only been around for 100 years or so, and in that time has been criticised by many prominent academics and scholars, such as Sir Cecil Rhodes. It does not, for example, teach us why apples fall from trees, or why the sun rotates the earth - this is observable, and proven, while this theory has nothing to say on the subject - and when it does, is quietly hushed up. It's time NZ schools taught Ptolemaic physics alongside Newtonianism and Einsteinism, and explain that not everyone accepts the latter. I have had some good feedback from a number of politicians and expect that John Key will be receptive to the idea.
OK folks, you've warmed up on some easy targets try and extract the urine from comments that parody themselves in one hermetically sealed package.
I've just come back and in OZ and the US they have much lower use of relativity. I used to have faith in the system here, but it's failed, after 20 years of neglect. We've lost so much - and Clark is mainly to blame.
Mass does convert to energy, but it should be optional. I mean there are good rules, and bad rules, and rules that simply aren't needed. The red tape in the name of science keeps stacking up. Scientists should be able to believe whatever they want, and not be criticised by post-modern relativists. We're falling behind, because of a lack of moral and broadband fibre.
We're only being told half the story here. These "calculations" are merely speculation - done by Einstein using computer modelling and are now being used by the Look at the Swiss and French and Germans, suckered into spending billions into "Large Hadron" research.
A Wild Goose chase, while the inconvenient truth is buried. See truefactsaboutrelativity.blogspot.co.za E=mc^2 is a localised phenomenom, most pronounced in the middle ages and does not affect New Zealand.
And what has relativity ever done for us?
Oh, I should say that the above is a direct quote - the first search result for "Heleban". It happened to fit perfectly, so I saw no need to alter it.
Better late than never, I suppose.
Approximately 70% of the stuff dished on the Heleban by Ian Wishart still remains non-mentioned by the MSM anyway. This is just a sickening disgrace. Not only were the MSM rolling over and going to sleep on their watch, under the Heleban, but they literally participated in the cover-up when the country’s only real investigative journalist dug anything up.
Y'know, Capital coast health presently has just one clinical psychologist available to out patients, for the entire city of Porirua. That means only twenty people receive cognitive behavioral therapy, without needing to come up with around $120.00 minimum per session to go private, or meet the criteria for ACC assistance.
Mental health services in NZ are pretty poor.
the only ads concerned with drinking were either violent, deeply emotional scarring illustratons of worst case scenarios, or liquor ads featuring buff larrikans or rugged hard men with not a chick in sight. Is it still all scare tactics? or have they subsequently offered some positive scenarios as guides?
I remember a 90s ad that had people giving lines; "I don't because I'm pregnant", "I don't because I'm training", "I don't because I don't want to", etc. And at the end Temuera Morrison came on and said "when someone says they don't want to drink, they have their reasons. Respect that, that's what a friend would do."
It seemed like a good ad. But their current focus is on binge drinkers, and that's a fair call, from where they stand (minimising alcohol related harm).
The cost ????????? How about another 1000 police peeps?????
That's more than $40 million, ongoing, in wages. That would buy a lot of television advertising.
The ads were since suspended by the Labor Government, on account of their evaluating their 'effectiveness'.
I should say that this wasn't a specific slight against violence prevention - they've taken to cutting back dramatically on every type of spending.
