    everyone spies on everyone else anyway”. So is Hager right or not, Mr Key?

    Key used his usual 'many of Hager's spying claims have been disproved anyway' statement - I can't remember any specific instances of this, at best it has been proved that not as many people are interested as I'd hope, but no one ever asks 'which specific claims were proved wrong Mr Key?'

    ...and then we get Hooton foaming at the mouth - as a 'Right Wing activist' he finds it intolerable that their might be a 'sinister' to his 'dexter' - at least Kathryn Ryan did make that point, it went straight over Hooton's hot little head.

    Voices in the bewilderness...

    great restraint

    I needed that to not defenestrate the radio, while listening to that misanthropic trope peddler, Matthew Hooton on Nine to Noon...
    He took pains to insist that if Nicky Hager is a journalist, then he (Hooton) is the captain of the All Blacks - he really does think like John Key, poor deluded soul.

    I note on his bio page of influence peddlers and tinkerers Exceltium that he takes pride in having helped create that too-big-to-fail basket of eggs known as Fonterra - which is now a top heavy millstone for our primary production sector , facing diminishing returns and a crumbling international market.

    Dairying addiction may well bring this country to its knees...
    ...on so many fronts.

    curiouser and curiouser…
    numbering was 5468 first thing this morning
    I’ve posted two comments – back to 5466!!

    <edit: stasis - still 5466>
    trying to get my head around how a digital program could do this - I can see how a mechanical counter might 'seize up' or 'freeze' - but computers are our friends, they're here to help... just so long as it doesn't devour my organic data and presence.

  • Capture: Aurora Australis,

    Incoming!
    http://www.spaceweather.com/ reports:

    Yesterday, April 18th, a magnetic filament attached to sunspot group AR2321 erupted, producing a C5-class solar flare. A movie from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory shows the filament splitting the sun's atmosphere as it hurtles away from the blast site:
    Part of the escaping filament formed the core of a faint CME, which is now heading almost directly for Earth. The cloud should reach our planet during the late hours of April 21st. In combination with a solar wind stream already en route, the impact could spark geomagnetic storms around the poles on April 22nd, Earth Day.

    That’s really quite odd.

    what’s odder is now it’s going backwards
    this one was 5465!
    The Big Crunch is beginning….
    I’m guessing this post’ll be 5464…
