  • Speaker: Broadcasting and the Public Interest, in reply to Rich of Observationz,

    Broadcast TV is pretty much obsolete technology – looking at a clean sheet of paper, why would you spend millions on a dedicated radio pipe to do the same thing as near free internet bandwidth?

    Like it or not it's still where the eyeballs are.

    "PHIL GOFF = MORE OF THE SAME"

    Weird attack given we've got a unitary plan signed, CRL underway, cycle lanes springing up all over, and so on... Not sure who they're pitching to exactly but the people that line works with are total bloody thickos.

    If he hadn't screwed around on his wife strange old Len would have been a shoo-in.

    More of the same? I don't like the guy but I like the results so fucking sign me up.

  • Speaker: Her outdoors,

    I'd forgotten about the flower guy. I never thought of him as a boy, perhaps because I was so young the last time I saw him. He always seemed old to me. Or are we (as unlikely as it seems) talking about different people? He couldn't walk, yes?

  • Speaker: The real problem with the ‘Kiwimeter’, in reply to Jason Kemp,

    Attachment

    Where I did have trouble was in the later stages of trying to choose between say rugby and the All Blacks as a NZ symbol.

    I found that to be a very interesting challenge.

    "Get in the sea." I don't really know where it came from or why but every time I see it I love it.

    No I didn't read all 5 pages of comments before adding that, yes I do now see it's already been suggested. Argh I hate it so much but I had to make sure.

    Mansplain. Which is a word I loathe, but other words of the year seem to fade away pretty quickly so maybe this is the way to kill it.

  • Polity: Too much to swallow on the TPP, in reply to Alfie,

    I think it's something like "industries that have gone away already".

  • Speaker: Abortion: morality and health, in reply to Bart Janssen,

    with Russell absent no moderation was possible

    Yeah that's the key. With no guiding hand getting rid the most derailing comments it would quickly devolve. I don't believe Russell would have pulled that trigger if he wasn't about to step away from the keyboard, not so quickly anyway.

  • Speaker: Abortion: morality and health, in reply to kiwi_guy,

    Unfortunately feminists seem to demand exactly that.

    Please tell me about more of your funny ideas.
