RE: Lockdown Check In
Had a few nice days in Cornwall, Looe, over the weekend, came home early as it seems spending time with my husband is actually a shit idea and looks like I'm probably getting divorced pretty soon.
Sounds like I'm joking but I'm not. Let's hope we don't get lockdown again anytime soon.
Been there done that but you can come out of it as great friends if you’re both grown up about it and above all compromise. My ex wife ended up with a great bloke, they have two kids who I adore and she just wrote my other half a sickening ( in a nice way....I think ) lovey dovey birthday greeting today. They’re basically bffs and naturally yours truly bears the brunt of any grief. Turns out I haven’t gotten any better at housework over the years.
Don’t ever fight in front of the kids or have a go at hubby just to ‘one up’....not sure how many kids you have but always remember that one. You might be in for a rough few months or years....depends on you and your situation. Luckily for me my ex was willing to work at things, as was I. No lawyers ( apart from those needed for property division etc ) compromise, putting the boys first etc. My folks and I even went to her sisters wedding this year prior to lockdown. It was a fucken awesome shindig and we were touched we got the invite.
Hopefully you both remember you got married in the first place for a reason. Maybe you drifted apart, differed as the years went by, other parties ( MN5 raises a guilty hand ).....but particular when there’s children involved it’s SO important to put differences aside and focus on the fact that person is the other 50% of what made the kid (s).
Best of luck to ya, you’ll come out the other side stronger
RE: Police Officer reported shot dead
No one should go to work and not expect to make it home safely.
I guess we are lucky at least these are so rare, first instance since 2009 accoutring to the media.
I'm pleasantly surprised by that stat. It feels more regular.
Yeah it is a reassuring stat but then any lose is terrible. I’d imagine other parts of the world it’s a daily occurrence.
Just the 33rd in NZ. Sadly for my family, as a few ferners are aware, one of those was my Grandad.
Shit like this always makes my Mum in particular pretty sad so I best give her a bell. Never nice to see her fathers name on the news.
No words to describe the piece of human filth who committed this latest offence so I won’t even bother trying.
@NTA rarely do either of us ever take our phones into our room, we dont use iPads much either and never for watching stuff in our room (we do have a TV in there though) more so since Miss 11 stood on one of them and has cracked the screen.
TR Jnr is pushing the boundaries on his phone, but I say we dont have ours in our room, so neither do you.
Ex and I got the boy an Iphone for his 12th birthday last friday. Needless to say there's already an absolute shitload of Star Wars and Bond memes getting sent. Just totally over the top. Some of them aren't even that funny.
I suspect he'll get annoyed at the constant bombardment and block my number sooner or later.
RE: Roger Tuivasa-Sheck
Do the ABs need him for the 2019 RWC ?
For the back three, they have : Ben Smith, Israel Dagg, NMS, Jordie Barrett, DMac, Naholo, Ioane, Savea, Havili, Duffie and Tamanivalu, plus maybe Nanai, Alaimalo, Will Jordan and Caleb Clarke if they can step up.
Bit of a long winded rambling post but you made your point eventually I guess
RE: Aussie Rugby
When he posts it loud and proud on social media, it is everyone's business
He broke the Inclusion Policy of AR (2014) that he signed up to, just the same as everyone who signs up to specific behaviour for their job. He got a warning last time - apparently not this time
If everyone just went about their daily lives and ignored his post the world would be a better place. Instead everyone is running around drawing attention to it, magnifying the problem they assert exists. Does anybody think sacking him will stop him posting religious nonsense?
What does the ARU think his fellow religious PIs think about this outcome?
I disagree with this 100%.
He’s in an incredibly privileged position, even by pro sportsman’s standards. He’s been clearly warned to tow the line when he’s done this in the past.
He’s upset a whole bunch of sponsors who help foot the bill for his massive salary.
Fuck him and all he stands for.

RE: World Test Championship
Just proving yet again England aren’t particularly good. Aside from Root and maybe Anderson who from their team would walk into the Black Caps ?
Stokes probably would as well.
No I don’t reckon. He is an all rounder but he’s not World Class in either discipline. In years gone by yes he would have walked in but not with the team we have currently. Our four seamers are all better than he is ( he’s currently the 30th best bowler in the world ) and the only way he’d get in as a batsman ( where he is ranked 11th which surprises me ) is if he magically reinvented himself as an opening partner for Tom Latham.
RE: TV Serieseseses
@NTA that's nothing for Paquin!
Side note: Her mum was my English teacher.
Taught you everything you know?
I'll have you know I got school C English!
I'm also old enough to know what that means!
I think I got 32% in the mock exam so it was touch and go.
51% for school C maths and was strongly encouraged to give it up from then on.
RE: Re: Movie review thread...
Watched the Foreigner on Netlfix tonight. Jacky Chan plays the father out for revenge who has a hidden past, Pierce Brosnan channels his inner Gerry Adams to play a Northern Irish politician and one time IRA member. Set in London and Belfast, the movie has a gritty feel to it, Chan is quite the opposite to his usual smiling Rush Hour style character. Great action, suspense, and a high octane ending. A solid 4 soda bottle bombs out of 5 viet cong style death traps
This review makes it sound quite compelling. There’s tonight’s movie sorted. Brosnan is actually pretty decent when he’s not being James Bond.
RE: What are you listening to, right now................
Some of those MTV Unplugged albums are really good. I prefer the full bands than solo artists though.
Bit of a novelty in the 90s but I don’t think any of them did anything better than the original ( ie full band ).
I saw Ben Harper on an acoustic tour and he just ended up sounding like a busker after a few songs. Pretty dreary as opposed to when he has the rest of the boys backing him up.
RE: What are you listening to, right now................
@mn5 haven't really listened to his rock stuff, but some singers shouldn't do acoustic and I reckon he is one of them. Just like some wonderful acoustic singers shouldn't rock.
Not much danger of him releasing anything new nowadays.
On the whole I’m not a fan of acoustic stuff, it takes an absolutely exceptional artist to make it work ( vocals and unplugged guitar only ) and most don’t cut it in my opinion.
