    With the acknowledgement that this does not imply causation nor is it even slightly fact-checked. I'm assuming that the students wouldn't lie cos they have to use proper data, right?

    Denver: population 630,000ish
    Auckland: population 1,400,00ish

  • Hard News: Show some decency, in reply to Chris Waugh,

    Back in NZ, I think Key's lack of strategic smarts is starting to show, and that gives me hope he'll be out of the picture soon-ish. The big question is who comes next.

    I'm hoping at least one bloody journalist will push Key on whether he intends to see out the entire term if re-elected. I highly doubt it and it is only fair* for him to let us know who he sees as replacing him.

    *this part could be difficult for the slimy prick to achieve.

    What’s more none of them are looking forward, they are all blindly heading into the future towards something beyond their reach, attention fixed backwards to the lightweight in the stern calling the shots

    Such a flaccid cox...

    And then the gang mentality kicks in with a viciousness that makes this place as scary as Kiwiblog on a bad day.

    Well I don't think it's ever going to be that bad here. People step in...

    Yeah I know…but still. Either kick him off or let him go relatively unscathed. There'll be no middle ground.

    Re. Mr George:

    Not everyone's cup of tea and offensive to some, but this reads like bullying to me. I see him as somehow earnest and wanting to engage others to consider his views. It's almost brave on some level, knowing it's a tough crowd.

    It's a fine line on who's being dirty sometimes.

  • Hard News: Friday Music: Festival Furores,

    Re. the conflict of interestings, maybe Lorde could phone it in - by way of live feed to a not-particularly-big screen?

    Also: I enjoyed this tear it down and put it back together acapella.
