The more the All Blacks align themselves with John Key the more I hate them.
One is known by the company one keeps...
and as I said elsewhere, with McCaw and Key it's hard to know who corrupted who the most !!
rumbled still skin...
If you want a metaphor for John Key, then I guess this ill-thought out, ego-driven, vacuous, and frivolous flag debate is as good as any.
He is spinning straw into gold!
(or so he thinks...)
It does seem then that there is not really a problem with 'loopy rules' but mostly 'loopy people' implementing them...
Context is everything - I'd have though that with databases and systems being what they are, a flow chart and 'idiot list' could be generated for any building consent process to aid both parties...
which lead to the extension cord catching fire (induction – don’t coil those things)
Moving house has its problems as well...
I think these are the folk who moved Dr Haywood to Dunsandel...
Students and artists should use a new building set to be demolished to make way for a stadium that "may never happen", a developer says.
The Kirk Roberts Consulting Engineers' office building opened at the corner of Barbadoes and Lichfield St in 2012. It was the first large commercial building rebuilt in central Christchurch post-earthquake.
The Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (Cera) acquired it with plans to demolish it to make way for the covered stadium as part of the blueprint.
According to 2013 forecasts, construction of the new covered stadium should have started in March this year.
Cera this year pushed completion of the contentious anchor project to late 2021. Christchurch City Councillor Raf Manji said in May the project had been pushed to late 2024 or 2025.
One of The Guardian commenters pointed out the Industrial Design Council of Australia's 1958 logo...
so it does have a design pedigree...
Semaphore play – talking flags
…if this is something that anyone globally is going to notice or care about besides New Zealanders who are paranoid about being mis-perceived by someone else’s manipulation of their flag.
it makes the Australian’s blog
I’m also thinking that for 5% of the population (thereabouts) the Red Peak flag will just be 3 similarly toned Triangles – I have trouble enough defining between the Black and Blue with my aging rods and cones…
(same for all the flags bar the krappy koru one, really)
S’peak’ing of ‘chevrons’ I see Z Energy is buying Caltex
the lucky country...?*
...an enduring symbol of mankind
the recent perverted use of which
does not diminish its rich heritage
among more enlightened cultures
* ...the Sanskrit term svastika, meaning any lucky or auspicious object, and in particular a mark made on persons and things to denote auspiciousness, or any piece of luck or well-being.
I thought I’d better check out what these Red Peak Nazi sentry boxes looked like, only to find someone is already using our Koru flag as a re-use prevention watermark!
