  • Hard News: The climate changed,

    The weather at Capehorn isn’t looking so good now. There’s a manageable southerly, but that makes a lee shore. Then tomorrow it’s forecast to rise to a nearly thirty knot easterly. That’s right on the nose.

    At the risk of sending this thread into collapse, I’d just like to say that today would be an idea time to round Capehorn.

  • Hard News: Jacindamania: Word famous in…,

    Funny how word of the year is often famous during the last part of the year. Some of the runner-ups, however, where remembered from early in the year notoriety. I like that that happened. (Alternative facts.)

    You’d hope also, that medical professionals are keeping some sort of (hopefully anonymised) records of use, efficacy and safety of unregulated products that their patients have admitted using.

    Well, a diligent doctor would enter into patient records; the use of recreational drugs, alcohol and/or cigarettes. And, if the patient uses “alternative” medicines. If I noticed my doctor not doing that, I would seriously think about getting a better one.

    And Steven – you might be thinking of ionising radiation

    I was just kidding:-)

    I do know though, that the question about mabe scary affects of cellphone radiation on humans, has massive imperial data to help dispel fear, due to phone companies records.

    Another question about cellphones, now that they have turned into smartphones, is do they make people depressed? And that’s not easily figured out with numbers.

    I’d assume the Green fairys can produce evidence that they where supplying pharmaceuticals, not just garden grade weed. If not, they don't have much of a defence case. Just a mitigating argument for the sentencing.

    Regarding cellphone radiation. It kills cancer :-)

    if I knew what you looked like would have said hi.

    I only know hardly anyone one from Public address in person. Those I've met are mostly in Christchurch. I'll keep an eye out for the next local gathering, and hopefully see you there too.

    Had a big public toilets day today to be proud of:-) I was in there washing my hands at Te Rauparaha arena with the Special Olympics dudes, and I had my Porirua city council uniform on!

  • Hard News: Harkanwal Singh: What really…, in reply to WH,

    Newspaper reports indicate that investors have been purchasing 45% of all properties sold in Auckland.

    Good to use the word properties rather than housing there. It's most likely the land the investors are after, and the air space above it.
