  • Commented on Roe v Wade v Sanity
    I understand the preference is now Enslaver's Treasonous Rebellion? To show where the responsibility for circumstances lies....
  • Commented on Bad news day
    Cases in NZ are skyrocketing because we decided to delay border opening a couple of months in order to get most people boosted before they were exposed to Omicron (plus starting juvenile vaxing in January) . This was successful, with...
  • Commented on Omicron
    In New Zealand, non-squeamish drivers swerve to hit (Australian, bovine-TB infected) possums as a service to the community....
  • Commented on Omicron
    I'm somewhat relived that my 80yo mother got her booster this week, as I expect that Omicron will breach the NZ border sometime this summer (probably in the next few weeks). I am strongly encouraging her to stay with us...
  • Commented on An update on the revolutionary experiment
    A person in the group of about a dozen waiting our 15 minutes after Pfizer had to be gently assisted from his chair to the floor for a short lie-down. Was an extra 15 minutes wait for me as the...
  • Commented on Invisible Sun: Themes and Nightmares
    NZ attitude to healthcare in general is not great, our ICU ration is even worse than Australia's. This is a major reason the politicians were convinced of the elimination approach relatively early. We have flagged no more lockdowns after this...
  • Commented on Crib Sheet: Dead Lies Dreaming
    In NZ, Mobil's pay-at-pump solution is an app that geo-locates the station that you are at, you enter pump number & max$, then authorise payment to unlock the pump. No card reader on-site needed, although the station I use most...
  • Commented on Central Banking on Mars!
    As I shared on Twitter https://twitter.com/WhySharksMatter/status/1365391528923967493 @WhySharksMatter Hey friends? If you see one of your friends or colleagues getting the vaccine when you're not eligible yet and you're the same age, consider that they may have medical conditions you're not...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    Weight and balance calculations are part of any aircraft pre-flight checks. Get either aspect wrong enough and you will be in trouble. When you are near limits or have small sample sizes you have to be more precise, otherwise you...
  • Commented on A Quick Infomercial
    I've taken a DC-3 to a couple of airshows here in NZ, involving mutli-hour flights. Everyone is weighed, and the briefing included "If you purchase bottles of wine at any of the fine vineyards in the area, please report to...
  • Commented on Covid on Mars
    "Airline trade association IATA is working on a secure mobile phone based solution that interfaces between passengers, their passport plus health data, labs, and airlines." https://runwaygirlnetwork.com/2021/01/27/inside-iatas-verified-covid-testing-vaccination-app/...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    Yes, the tour at Waitangi gives examples of up to three pronunciations for some places, as well as differing vocab for some things - which is great for raising awareness for international visitors or those who's education is out of...
  • Commented on What happens now?
    apparently both the UK and US pronounce it "marry". While spending 4 years living in the UK South East, I can't remember any particular issues with Brits saying Maori, but you constantly deal with a vowel shift anyway. There is...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    It's not in the harbour, it's outside! (Just) My mate the geo-physicist noted that Rangitoto was atypical activity for the Auckland Volcanic Field. A last hurrah, or the start of a new phase? Hang on, scratch that last bit, earlier...
  • Commented on Submarine coming through!
    At least the new exclusion zone around Mt Ruapehu's crater lake (central North Is NZ, just south of the big lake formed by an eruption 26,500 years ago) doesn't reach as far as the popular path over the adjacent mountain,...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    JBS @377 If you mean convert mm to inches or inches to mm, I don't even have to search This is in the context of recipes, so linear distance probably only relevant for tin size, and the level of precision...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    If you don't know how to search for '$StatedMeasure as $DesiredMeasure' and evaluating the multiple results nearly all to tools giving the same answer, you aren't making full use of the modern world :-)...
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Right, I was aware of sticks as sub-units of NA butter....
  • Commented on So you say you want a revolution
    Apparently many Brits have an issue with the concept of tea/tablespoons in recipes, because they vary so much. The answer of course is the measuring spoon sets that are easily available everywhere that commonly use them in recipes! I'm converting...
  • Commented on Countdown to Crazy
    There used to be a recording on-line of the start procedure for a Bristol Freighter aircraft being explained to an aviation journalist as it happened - 1950's sleeve-valve radials are complex electro-hydro-mechanical systems....
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    In Aus these days, the only thing you can say about a bottle of (non-sparkling) wine that has a real cork in it is that it comes from overseas. Ditto in NZ. It's rare to see a fake cork as...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    as they have just done "allow the electoral commissioner to delay the election" Most of the potential delay without a Parliamentary super-majority is down to the intended election date being three months earlier than is allowable under current law, so...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Note NZ has three-year terms as a limit on power. Many also think that the current 5% barrier for List seats is too high, and the effective barrier in the current Scottish system is sort-of higher due to the regional...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    Some additional Battle of Britain points. A major reason the the Luftwaffe swapped to London was to 'force' the RAF to engage with them (things you learn when you look at German evidence rather than only looking at the RAF...
  • Commented on No comment necessary
    I checked in with my mate who works in Victoria Barracks, Melbourne. He (and his wife) have been working from home since March. He has gone on-premises about once a month to perform specific tasks. The new restrictions mean that...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    The Napier-Taupo Road in NZ (from the SE coast of the North Island to the Central Plateau) has better electric vehicle infrastructure than IC infrastructure. Only ~120km between petrol stations, but worth having warning signs for tourists. Not worth running...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    I can completely understand the two returning kiwis getting to where they did. Get confused by the on ramp that they should have taken being one of those roundabout by-passes rather than coming off the roundabout proper, so get on...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    BTW, New Zealand now has women (co-)leading the three highest-polling political parties. https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/politics/300056981/judith-collins-the-new-leader-of-national-party-promises-to-crush-the-government...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    And apparently you can still move to New Zealand if you are immigrating. If your move is signed off at Ministerial level. I assume guidance was sought before headhunting internationally, in this case for a forensic pathologist position - not...
  • Commented on "It'll all be over by Christmas" (Part 2)
    If anyone wonders if the guard geese referred to in Cold War spy novels etc were real, there is first-hand confirmation of them being used at a Pershing 2 site in Germany in this podcast interview. https://coldwarconversations.com/episode122/...
