    Our Mayer, the Mayer of Porirua also uses the libertarian argument that everyone has the right to choose to eat addictive formulations of sugar, salt and fat – the stuff thats heavily marketed with the help of child psychologists and presented with toys – and advertised wall to wall everyware.

    He’s had his stomach stapled.

    Its, Is the man who is tall happy? I recommend this film. It’s a great circuit breaker.

    I recently brought a mini deep fryer home from a Trademe auction. I’m now known around the house as big fat frydady Steve. So I ran an oil test which yielded this result:

    One feed of hot chips equals actually not much rice bran oil at all.
    My edmonds cookbook beer battered fish, soaks up much more.

    I have a favourite staple which is (And I am not trying to prove I dominate this discussion, OK!) Kumera.

    Is the man who is tall happy – The man who is tall is happy – Is the man happy who is tall?

    I watched a Noam Chomsky animation titled one of those last night. I'm going to have to think about it.

    If it’s any help, the last time I looked emergency vouchers issued by certain welfare agencies, redeemable at Pak’nSave, were endorsed to prevent their being used to purchase booze.

    Back in the day, when I turned twenty, my dole payments went up precisely enough to buy a crate of big bottles. The quandary was always getting a car to drive around drinking it in.

    BUT we should change the government and get one that actually does something, like taxing the shit out of crap. I pointed this out early on in the thread. I see you didn’t comment one way or the other on that.

    So, you want to make food more expensive for poor people?

    So, is wine and beer from the supermarket food?

  • Up Front: Fringe of Darkness, in reply to Finding A Voice,

    I believe the harms that occurred at Centrepoint to a selection of its children can be redeemed and healed. I want to encourage and actively participate in a process which brings those who were harmed and those who could have done more to protect them (and who are willing to acknowledge their Shadows), together in order to restore that which was broken within both parties.

    Do you have any thoughts on how to facilitate that?

    It’s good to have you here on this public forum. We live under an umbrella culture, that prefers to deal with these ugly truths behind closed doors – in ACC funded rooms, psychiatric hospitals, Adiction treatment centers and prisons.

    Passive observers, who for what ever reason, failed to even notice – at the time – that was going on was going to have serios long term consequences. Those ‘passive’ participants, don’t have a lot of easily recognizable outlets to begin to look at the pathologial rationalizing away the need to feel guilty of being naïve many years ago.

    They deserve only scorn.

    The problem with that, is that “they” also have other human qualitys seperatly from being psychologically unwell, among other things.

    Do they vent the oxygen to atmosphere?

    I see from the reading that the project didn't require any special permits, so yes. All the big problems happen when you start trying to compress it into tanks.
