    Birkenstock-wearing, tree-hugging hippies, it seems, had a point sez the bald colonel.

    Has anyone else thought of this?

    (Is a word)

    Not a word play? Dont make me spell it out. I'll laugh too hard.

  • Hard News: A few (more) words on The Hobbit,

    great matches between all teams, upsets, courageous performances, new stars, friendships made, cultures experienced, goods purchased in massive quantities, sold-out stadiums, infrastructure that doesn’t collapse, parties that never stop, heated debates, a feeling of excitement that drags even the most dour stay-at-home out to stick their hands in the air.

    I further propose that in the midst of all this, two people fall in a glorious love.

    Just as long as they are two macho rugby types expressing their more sensitive caring side.
    It would made a( ...well .......lets wait till it comes out to pass judgement) movie.

    Mustn’t insult the oldies,

    Hey do your best!
    The BB's come in all varieties of mental makeup, as any generation/people do. Just pick your target, may sure its the right one and fire away. And make sure there is more to your insult that the accident of their birth date.
    And that's enough weapon imagery for me.

    I think it would actually be a very good place to start for people not to label someone a paranoid schizophrenic (which is actually a tricky diagnosis to make when you’re a mental health professional in the room) on the basis of fuck all squared.

    But because of recent evolution many, many people are schizotypal.
    It's a fabulous lecture if you have an hour and a half.
    It would probably help if we kept this in mind more often.

    nation whose film and television industries still have a rather nasty whitewash habit

    Sorry, is it still the 1950's?
    W.A.S.P. wash still holds sway in some minds.
    Who'da thunk it.

    early 20th century rural NZ cliches. I can imagine baby boomers feeling all gooey and sentimental about then

    (that would be them I guess)

    SHIT we’re not that old! You must be talking about the bb’s descended from the Four Shippers. Such cliches would only have had time to get into their memes.

  • Hard News: A few (more) words on The Hobbit,

    That’s why so many Kiwis are suspicious of individuals with too much talent.

    Are those the kiwis who filled their pockets from, and screwed the property market?

    It smacks of unfairness, privilege and elitism.

    Silly me, I thought a talent for something came from a combination of genetic makeup, upbringing and a fair amount of practice.
    You can get into all sorts of trouble when you talk in generalities like that, Trots.
