  • Hard News: Orcon IRL: Vote Auckland,

    Unfortunately, this decision ruled out all the 2016 mayoral candidates bar Chloe Swarbrick.

    I like what you did there.
    Chlöe might be even more interesting if you restored her umlaut though.

  • Legal Beagle: The Spinoff: Offensive and…, in reply to Gregor Ronald,

    But apparently it's now a crime, subject to legal sanctions. When did that happen?

    It wasn't a criminal investigation. The character alleged to have made homophobic statements was not the accused but the complainant.

    Lack of comprehension is a defect which can be cured by education and training. It's not a crime either, but I recommend the treatment.

  • Hard News: Obama's Mana, in reply to Russell Brown,

    I appreciated the way the Obamas clearly decided about halfway through to spare his embarrassment by moving around a bit themselves, albeit in a low-key kind of way. I think that was a gracious thing to do.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: New Classical,

    This is totally off-topic except it relates to live music in Auckland, and this seems like a discriminating audience to ask for advice.
    If I was to pay a flying visit to the Power Station for a gig later this year, what would you suggest as an affordably convenient establishment at which to overnight?

  • Hard News: Three Dreams,

    Do y’all have the remembered-as-real thing?

    and

    I always know it's time to wake up and go for a pee because I start peeing into all sorts of cavities because there's never a toilet.

    Most realistic dream I have ever had nested this two levels deep.
    [In the dream] I started peeing and stopped just in time because I remembered I was asleep and had to wake up and go to the loo. So I woke up [in the dream] and went to the loo and did my business, and then before I had returned to the bed I really did wake up - fortunately the very realistic micturation had only been part of the (outer) dream! It took a while to get back to sleep after that little escapade.

    Okay, that might just be the weirdest thing I've ever typed on PAS...

    Er, definitely!

  • Hard News: UMR: Medpot and the public, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    some sort of pass system

    A tax on buyers from other regions would do nicely.

  • Legal Beagle: The flag referendum:…, in reply to Myles Thomas,

    get a deeper blue

    Yes; I didn't like the Lockwood designs particularly and I strongly resent the way the PM has appeared to be gaming the process, but the first time I saw fabric versions of the old flag and the black Lockwood flying side by side my overwhelming reaction was simply "oh no, that's a really naff blue".

  • Hard News: What you lookin' at?,

    Spoilers, folks!
    I am a big fan of Orphan Black and I didn't know about something I have just read here :-(

  • Hard News: Art with a job to do,

    As somebody said on Twitter, the black Lockwood design is just the current flag with the Union Jack swapped out and the All Black fern swapped in.
