  • OnPoint: Don't put words in our mouths, Rob, in reply to Ian Dalziel,

    <Doh!>

    ...like a CETI program

    I meant SETI, or more specifically SETI@home.

  • Hard News: Auckland: The songs of the city,

    Aural tradition…

    Westside The creators have underlined the importance of the songs by publishing the soundtrack for each episode.

    ditto for Outrageous Fortune – I note that Blair Parkes’ band, The L.E.D.s, had songs in quite a few of the episodes of the last three series (they also featured heavily in Go Girls as well) – shame their tracks didn’t make it on to the two tie-in O.F. soundtrack albums – Blair is yet another unsung mainstay of NZ Music!

    Hmmm – Westside sounds a bit like Wildside…
    - which makes one think of Murray Cammick and his influence over the years as well…

    panning for gold...

    Brainspacetime is a precious resource...

    ...and yet it seems this country may have quite a bit of it being frittered away, maybe it's time for a timeshare exchange on underused brain-spaces!
    You know, kind of like a CETI program searching in the background, and down time, for intelligent life on earth...

    Ultra Share Hosiery?

    ...and the value of hosing in NZ

    Leaven it up to you...

    ...happy to accept half-baked statistics* from Labour?
    *Actually, I don’t think they went near the oven.

    Houses and house-buyers are much affected by the 'kneady' and the 'doughy' - rather than put their floury and watery 'statistics through the normal 'proving' pass, Labour chose to aerate the lumpy mix by just giving it air and seeing what rises...
    There's always some fungis in the mix to heat things up!

  • Speaker: House-buying patterns in Auckland,

    Chinatown redux...
    a quote from Paolo Bacigalupi's The Water Knife that seems apposite:

    "Pure data: you don't believe data, you test data... If I could put my finger on the moment we genuinely fucked ourselves, it was the moment we decided data was something you coud use words like believe or disbelieve around."

    The Zhang Heng Code
    The 'problem' may go deeper - Twyford may have lifted the lid on a millennia old Dynastic land grab plot!

    A new study has revealed that millions of modern Asian men have descended from 11 powerful dynastic leaders who lived up to 4,000 years ago, including Mongolian warlord Genghis Khan.
    The study from the University of Leicester examined the male-specific Y chromosome, which is passed from father to son, in more than 5,000 Asian men belonging to 127 populations.

    see:

    Obviously this will mean DNA testing before and after all land and house sales to curb this annexation by stealth!
