  • Hard News: Paths where we actually ride, in reply to Mark Easterbrook,

    Outside that area, but I do hope there's a plan to make getting from New Lynn to the Waterview connection something other than terrifying for cyclists.

    I second this. I've taken the cycle paths through Henderson to Te Atatu and along the motorway path, and then returned via Avondale, New Lynn, Glen Eden... WAY too unsafe in regular traffic.

    The Princes St overbridge has a curved wall doesn't it? Built after that schoolboy threw a concrete block through a car windscreen killing the driver instantly in about 2005?

    I'm 'with' the toaster. While you might not agree with them, they've made made some points but the PA regulars are pumped up on something and have the gloves on. KO.

    Play the ball not the 'man'.

    Since there’s not much action at the moment in this thread, and I am contemplating sleep before waking to run the subs at my daughters football tomorrow morning, I am going to post a Grime diss track.

    In summary this guy called Chipmunk who was in the grime scene left to American pop start fame. He did a track with Chris Brown (Champion), kinda crapped out, came back home (to England), did a diss track.

    And then got slapped silly by Saskilla, Bugzy Malone etc…
    It starts with Chipmunks track and then goes from there. Saskilla and Bugzy Malone = dope.

  • Polity: Unity, success: Chicken, egg?, in reply to Pharmachick,

    I simply don’t believe that welfare recipients have a right to the same standard of living as people that work for their living.

    Boogie man stuff. I teach the children of people on benefits. By the dozen. They don't live anywhere near the same standard of those who work for their living. In fact I teach kids with learning disabilities that would qualify them for teachers aides but their parents can't afford the fee to get them tested and diagnosed.

    It has nothing to do with communism.

    It's simply part of living in a functioning society. If people don't want to live in an actual functioning society then they are welcome to pull up a deserted island and Bear Grylls the rest of their life.

    Apols… carrying on this one man team talk here….

    Last 1 term government in the UK was the Conservatives 1970-1974 That’s 40+ years.

    New Zealand: Labour 1972-1975. That’s 40 years.

    Canada: Liberal Party 1980-1984. 31 years.

    Australia: 1974? help me out. That’s 41 years.

    USA: (presidential) Democrats (Jimmy Carter 76-80). So that’s 35 years and counting. The previous one term president/party was some bloke called Grover Cleveland 1884-1888.

    The conclusion I can make is that you have to be an utter abomination for people to not want to return you for another chance to completely balls things up further. So don’t go shoving your head up your arse too soon.

    Last one term government in the UK was the Conservatives 1970-1974 ???

    I’m relying on wikipedia for this. That’s 40+ years… [off to look at other countries].

    New Zealand: Labour 1972-1975. That’s 40 years since it’s happened here.

    Canada: Liberal Party 1980-1984. 31 years.

    Australia: 1974??? help me out. That's 41 years.

    People just seem to looooooooooooooooooove voting for the same old same old more often than not these days. Seems like shit has to blow for change to happen.

    Works both ways.
