  • @Bones Yeah it's not a fast drop like in turbulence, because the autopilot was flying it. But it was only 1500' above the ground with a target of 0!



  • @machpants @Bones Yeah. The plane "had become visual with the ground".

    Me no likey.

    Is this a lot? Olympians could run that distance in that time...

    At that rate/altitude - they had another 35 seconds or so before the autopilot "landed" the plane.
    No problem, clickbait "news".



  • Make up your bloody mind ,

    As the guys say above it is the proximity to the ground that matters and the fact that the autopilot had a capture altitude of zero - so conceivably would have just flown into the ground (they normally have an auto disconnect of about 500 ft so it probably wouldn't have kept going without a pilot doing something. The actual rate of decent isn't too excessive for a pressurised aircraft (at altitude).

    Strange thing is that the autopilots operated independently. Most airliners (even my light aircraft) only have one altitude setting to prevent that happening i.e put an altitude in and any autopilot engaged will take you there. I have never flown a Dash 8 but that doesn't seem like a very good system.



  • @jegga Surely if they were trying to even things out they should have 3 blokes?

    I've had Irish oysters in Ireland and still prefer Bluff but then I flew to Bluff from Akl for the day just to eat oysters.

    Agree about paua done well it's very good. Havent been able to try rotten cray and to me that is illogical.

    Pretty much the only thing from the sea I can't abide is sea cucumber although I haven't had whale. I have had seal and it wasn't great.

    I don't have an issue with eating different foods dog was OK insects are / can be good - Cobra blood shooters are just an excuse to brag.

    Croc is OK but a bit bland - like snake. Roo ostrich all the darker meats are good. Balut is actually quite nice although very rich. Heard mixed reports on guinea pig sparrows a lot of effort from not much return

    Guinea pig is similar to sparrows/partridges/other-small-game-birds... decent enough, but the effort/return ratio is dubious.
    Piranha - way, way too much effort for fuck all, and the little shits are still trying to kill you after they're dead... tiny razor sharp bones.
    And yeah - croc/snake/tortoise - pretty bland.
    Had whale in Iceland... can't remember much about it, which I guess is a review in itself.
    Roo steak - excellent... seems strange the ockers don't take more advantage of that. Are the wild ones disease-ridden?
    One thing very high on my list of things to try - koala. I figure it will be fatty shit, but just the looks on aussie's faces would be worth it.

    Please don’t assume gender , those people in the photo might identify as blokes .



  • Sounds like she's got issues from earlier pregnancies. That bit about her body 'failing her' as she had to have c-sections is actually insulting as fuck to other woman who've had too, or chosen too, take that route.

    Lol, kept in the family till she self-weaned at 9. Now there's just an online article to follow that poor kid around!!



  • Wonder if she was a GoT fan?



  • @paekakboyz Mrs TR had c-sections for both our kids, #1 was 9pd 13 and #2 was 10pd 4...#1 couldnt get enough through breastfeeding so he had to go onto bottle after a few months, #2 weaned herself off at about 10 months I think but doesnt have any deep seated issues...that I am aware of 🤔

    I only saw season one ,is there an obese delusional attention whore character she’s modelled herself off?



  • @jegga one of the ladies in it lost her husband and was cray cray. Her son (the lord heir) was a similar age and still sucking on the titty. It was maybe season 2 or 3.



  • Great proof-reading CBS

    One mistake maybe, but two bad ones in the same paragrapah

    Little cunt wanted to make Tyrion "fly".

    I think Littlefinger killed his Mum from memory ?



  • @kruse I'd forgotten piranha - I liked it sweet flesh

    @taniwharugby burying a rabbit for a couple of days doesn't sound excessive. In a previous life I worked fro a game dealer in London Lots of people used to bring us pheasants and other birds to dress (pluck and gut basically) Sometimes they'd been hung so long they were writhing - those we used to turn into pate

    The Phillippine delicacy is probably balut - as I said I didn't mind it - very rich, quite fatty. Although Phillippines is also where I tried Rover

    With all the online proof reading apps you can get these days how THE FUCK do people make those sort of mistakes ?

    Stuff.co.nz can always be relied upon for some doozies in their mad rush to get clickbait out there.....



  • The herald has its finger on the pulse again



  • @jegga it's only cause its white bread. Multigrain and there would have been nary a peep.



  • I'm not sure whos side I'm on here in this pointless bitchfight , one of them is an out of touch, self absorbed, narcissistic cretin and the other one is part of the Khardasian family.
