I’m outraged there hasn’t been a single All Black of Indian or Asian origin. Stay tuned for my disgruntled article on it.
If this kid is any good at cricket he can fucken well join a club and use all their gear and rely on volunteers like me ( I coach my boys team ). There’s a few brown faces amongst the kids in the various teams at the club and they’re certainly not all Indian.
@no-quarter wasn't it them that stopped The Red Pill being released in NZ?
I didn't realize they banned it. That goes way outside what they state on their website as that is pretty obviously politically motivated. Probably another example of the PC brigades exaggerated influence on society.
I am not 100% sure that's why I put the question out there. I know it was next to impossible to get hold of.
Oh lol. A short bit of googling revealed nothing, it's a bit of a mystery why it's not available in NZ. I figured no NZ companies wanted to pick it up given the "controversy"surrounding it.
It is available on Amazon Prime Video in NZ. Just checked, still available.
I have a good idea what the problem is and how to fix it, mainly related to his overexuberance and my reaction.
On the right track then. The energy that they have and what they portray to you is QI along with what you give back. My wife did an online thing when we got our wee girl called "Zen dog", I think that there is a book as well.
My pooch (sitting next to as I type) is generally well behaved, but if a rabbit is around, she's going to chase it. Birds she knows are no go, along with sheep. She even knows that tennis balls may belong to other dogs, or people, hers are fine. All of that came from her interaction with us and it is well worth it.
Have fun with your puppy they are really cool (especially when they lose some of the exuberance).
Recently finished Prodigal Son by Gregg Hurwitz (I'm always tempted to type Nathan Hurwitz, the off spinner), the latest in the Orphan X series. Just a good fun read where the bad guys generally get their beans.
Have also started the Mistborn trilogy for my sins. Have never been much of a fantasy fan, but I got put onto Wheel of Time twenty years ago - and I figured I owe Sanderson a few extra book sales after he finished off the sprawling mess that Jordan eventually turned WoT into.
@mariner4life See mate, my missus tells me I driving slower. But f*** it I just retired and moved home to godzone, so I figure I got all the time in the world. Mind you I do tend to set cruise control on 100 kph but I kind of figure there is too much to see in this country to rush. I may take off from lights a little slower than I used to, but figure I save the full revs for when I need it. I know when in Aus I tended to drive bit more over speed limit etc, but I practicing being one of thses grumpy old slow bastards and enjoying it so much. To be fair I make sure I leave cruise control on at passing lanes as I get pissed with people whi HAVE to pass car in front and then all are travelling at same speed anyway.
Ten years today. Wow. Horrible loss of life, a vastly changed city scape and so many different individual stories of the day. Feel free to share yours.
I was early for a haircut at Settlers Crescent in Ferrymead so was parked up on the side of the road, looking at my phone (maybe work emails but just as likely I was on Facebook). It suddenly started shaking violently. A side to side motion mostly from memory. I could see street lamps swaying. This lasted for a while but I don't think it seemed all that long whereas others recall it seeming to last for ages. Cracks opened up in asphalt footpaths and driveways but I think the road at that stage was ok. I pulled up into the driveway of my hairdresser where they'd all come outside. Ladies had foils and colour in their hair. There were lots of tears.
SHANGHAI, Feb 4 (Reuters) - SWIFT, the global system for financial messaging and cross-border payments, has set up a joint venture with the Chinese central bank’s digital currency research institute and clearing centre, in a sign that China is exploring global use of its planned digital yuan.
Feel for the dog: gets strangled, gets ... well ...
Agreed. Dogs running around in an excited state and parents of a three year old think it's fine he approaches a strange dog and attempts to strangle it. Dog and owner now face a high price. Kid is psychologically impacted . Parents complain about first world health care response.
@Higgins in the interests of justice I always feel that the family shouldn't have any input.
I must say I'm surprised at the sentence. This individual seems beyond redemption and as strange as it may seem given my previous occupation, I've always been opposed to the death sentence. People like him are making me reconsider that stance.
