    The Long Man hill figure...

    Saint Dalziel’s reality distortion field is still affecting the photograph in the post…

    Trying to capture photons when aligned with the portal is problematic at best, but the image from the other side as observed and interpreted by the good folk of ancient Wilmington (in true Report on Probability A style) looks like this...
    The trench becomes an invisible Ley Line...

    Penny dropping in low gravity...

    Joy Division and New Order were around back then?

    my point exactly...

    Dotting the tees and crossing the eyes...
    I see the City CEO, Tony Marryatt, decided to take a half day off to play golf at some council sponsored event - shame he had to miss a public excluded meeting about "additional governance arrangements for earthquake recovery planning". Which is one I would have thought he should have been at...
    But hey, I'm sure one of the other well remunerated senior managers will fill him in...

    Watch live demolition of the CrownePlaza

    I do hope some of these demolitions have had fixed timelapse records that may surface someday as a video...

  • Capture: Roamin' Holiday,

    What's wrong with this picture...
    a random 'snapshot' mystery for an open thread...
    I saw this story on The Herald's site this morning, and was mystified by the obvious disconnect of facts (or revelation of time travelling thieves!)...

    The Sun newspaper reported that the workers found a vault with hundreds of safety deposit boxes in the basement of the building in Manchester.
    The boxes reportedly date back to 1935 when the site was used by the Midland Bank.
    The Bank of England could not locate the owners and arranged for a drill to break open the boxes. Inside was jewellery, gold, a gun and master tapes by British bands Joy Division and New Order, all of which have been sent to the Treasury.

    !!!????
    Well it was reported by The Sun...

  • Hard News: This Is Not A Complicated Issue,

    speaking of the cost of access...
    Nice to see that Trevor Mallard has a profitable sideline in the ticket scalping business!
    While I don't know if the Homegrown Festival has applied for "Major Event" status as defined under the 2007 Act (that Mallard helped push through - for the RWC), Mallard comes across as a profiteer when telling one TradeMe bidder, who offered $500 for the 4 $95 tickets, 'I will let the auction run. And I think your price is cheeky.'
    I just hope he wasn't doing it from his work computer, during work hours...

    Pole position...

    I’ve seen two hearing-able people use sign as fast private communication in a crowded room. It was kind of badass.

    And so much easier than semaphore, hard to find flag-waving room in crowds, and I won't even start on the OSH implications...

    Doctor Where?

    Lockwit has been very definite about his authoritah being respected

    Looking at TV3’s coverage I don’t think Lockwood Smith respected the new MPs' Maiden Speeches enough to even be present – some of the editing gives the impression he is in the chair, but when you see the aerial shot with the woman doing signing on the speaker's left (about 28 seconds in) it ain’t Lockwood nestled into the fleece of power…
    What could have been more important I wonder?

    a parliament of rooks...

    Can we get subtitles too!

    Does each MP's seat/bench have a dedicated microphone?
    Couldn't software like Siri (or whatever it is iPhones now use) be used to transcribe what is said, with an attribution underneath as to who it is...
    ...and then all the juvenile heckling could also be ascribed to its source, and float around in the background like the aural pollution it is...
    Might even put a stop to it!
