Ooh, are we telling crazy Scientology anecdotes here?
I once spent a couple of days in LA as a member of the New Zealand Youth Choir. On our one precious free afternoon, someone in the organisation had arranged for us to visit a local landmark and perform to a group of young musicians. What this turned out to be was a visit to the LA Celebrity Center, where a lively song-and-dance number informed us of the importance of keeping kids off drugs. We escaped as a group as fast as we could, chased by smiling PR androids bearing CDs and magazines (Jenna Elfman was on the cover, which dates it a bit).
To this day I don't know if our choir admins were a) misled, b) infiltrated or c) possessed of an evil sense of humour.
the return-to-feudalism of the Greens
But hey, we’d have the world’s first Feudal Republic.
I'm seeing a nice Dr. Seussian dichotomy between the hat-twat twatcockers and hot-twat twatcockers. I imagine we'll discover in the end that our twatcocks are all the same underneath.
I have always heard "twatcock" to rhyme with "hot rock", but "twatock" clearly rhymes with "mattock" (a sadly underused word itself).
Without trawling through 200+ responses, does anyone else really like the Typekit fonts (of those for whom they work properly)?
FTR, I really like them (FF 3.6.12, Ubuntu 10.04 and FreeBSD 8).

don't you know the Constitution has an article written in invisible ink that says "none of the above applied to fags or rag-heads"?
I've always assumed it's in the secret constitution given out to True (white, male, protestant) 'Mericans when they turn 21, much like the secret road rules you get when you buy a Mercedes or Porsche.
I wish there was a word for "person you are in a civil union with"
Surely one half of a Civil Unit is just a Civil Half?
To be fair, I thought the overall tone of the Kiwiblog comments on this issue was relatively sane (no doubt partially due to DPF being so unequivocal for once). Even Redbaiter isn't arguing that he's in the majority - only that he's right.
(PAS: "We Read Kiwiblog So You Don't Have To")
if there were a civil emergency here
Well the Newmarket Viaduct is closed this weekend remember, which seems to be the apocalypse.
James, can you email me with some more details?
