    On the subject of Gap Filler, anyone who hasn't seen the wonderful documentary about it and other transitional projects, it's still available On Demand.

    after 5 years, we need to completely reconsider the ‘blueprint’. any business would do this: is it still what we want? what we need? what is best achievable? The only reason this isn’t happening is because there are egos too big to admit ever getting anything wrong.

    The Blueprint was ridiculous 5 years ago and even more ridiculous now. The CBD redevelopment needs to be driven by the locals to do the things we need. We all said this at the time, here on PAS.

    I find it unbearably depressing that the govt is still forcing their half-assed rush-job Plan on a city that doesn't want it. And that in the middle of a housing crisis the govt is happy to pour hundreds of millions into a convention centre and a stadium that will never break even, but that same government refuses to build social housing.

    truffles take about 10 years to grow and I think you need a pig to dig them up

    I've never had this problem with chocolate truffles, ever.

    aversion to humorous hyphenation outcomes

    Isn't that the title of a book by Alexander McCall Smith? The less-famous companion to The Careful Use of Compliments.
