When I can't find the droids I'm looking for.

And when people say, 'Live every day like your last', you can't do that, then you wouldn't turn up to work, and spend all your money, then the next day you'd be screwed cause you're broke and got no job.

You have to live your life like you still got another 50 years to go. Plan ahead, set goals and such.

being one of 4 people in my department who arent foreign.

i sit here all day wondering wtf people around me are saying since they refuse to conversate in english

as sad as it sounds i have resorted to speaking to them like the Kalahari Bushmen from Gods must be crazy.  They stand there stare at me like im some weirdo but its my way of stating a point.

also when the snack vending machine steals my money - ive broken 4 pairs of shoes kicking the crap out of it.

oh and when our receptionist insists it isnt her job to get milk - even though it clearly states it in her contract, she says shes too busy but she isnt.  A receptionist who doesnt answer the phone and direct calls to the necessary departments.

oh and the wankers that study downstairs at the Ghandi center - mofos dont know what a rubbish bin is, they throw their lunch rubbish where they please.  Obviously they dont like the idea of a clean green country.

Advertising that doesn't relate to a product a company is trying to sell.

Every show on MTV except for scarred

When you beat the league for the first time and the professor doesn't say "I came as soon as I heard you won"

When you get killed by invisible demomen

When people make multiple accounts ona forum to pad rep

When people pm you thinking you have negged them as if it's a crime punishable by death

When stig doesn't accidentally me

When stig does accidentally me

When azure snores like a dragon

When Rii beats me at pokemans

When your work makes you redundant but the work and job hasn't actually dissolved

When steam doesn't let you invite people to your game

When I burn my toast :< :<

Just kidding, I know what you mean. On a related note, people who lengthen a word to make it sound more intellectual when all they end up with is a made up one.

As an example - instead of saying "He was not easy to understand", they say "His incomprehensionability makes it difficult to understand his rationality". That really grinds my gears.

However, it soon grinds theirs because I then push the matter to get them to explain what they just said and then point out that they just made up a word. My habit of doing that probably grinds their gears, but I don't care :).

Yeah, that annoys me too.

Though tbh, whoever came up with the letter W was silly. We have 25 single syllable letters, lets add a letter with 3 syllables!

They're all single syllable or under.
Unless you're 'naming' them.

Doesn't it stand for World Wide Web?

Of course, if you are referring to the letter in general, yes, that is somewhat inexplicable.

Post by: Pyromanik on January 26, 2010, 10:23:05 am
^ yea he's talking about the letter literal.
"double-eugh double-eugh double-eugh" stands for "world wide web", yes. It's where we get the web standards authority w3c from (world wide web consortium... however if doing math though, that would conventionally be written as 3w I guess, although technically it doesn't matter).
But some lazy faggot with a slack jaw decided to shorten it. And it's pretty much only kiwi's that use the term widely. Even aussies who managed to shorted the exasperatingly long "Sarah" to "Sass" don't do it ffs. (well, at least not that I've come across).



People who get angry about nature grind my gears.

The 'double-yew' name might have something to do with the latin 'u', which is written 'V', therefore two 'u's would make VV etc. Just a guess though.

But yeah, 'dub dub dub' is pretty annoying, "Look at me, I'm internet-savvy." Lazy bastards.

Yeah, It was originally two V's or something. In some fonts, the V's cross over, like in Times Bew Roman, which looks pretty cool.

Both are redundant IMO.
The "dot co dot nz" or "dot com" intrinsically defines the previous statement as being a web address.
www. is defunct as is, and everyone should be forced to use redirection to the subdomainless site.
As I understand it, it's a legacy from back in the day where it defined what sort of server you were connecting to (ftp, http, mail, etc), as a naming convention. Of course there are a few valid reasons for it, but often hosts are not set up this way, and it truely is nothing more than a convention.

No, it's one of two things.
1. They're lazy ignorant fucks.
2. The root domain is a seperate machine, and is being used for a different purpose, and there's no webserver on it.

Well, so far as I understand. Admittedly I'm no PhD on the topic.

So I am doing up my house and have delined( removed gib) all the walls, ceiling etc and I think I should put in wall insulation, redo the ceiling and do under the floor.

 So in I go to get my insulation and my government subsidy, which is $1500. Get this, I can't do it myself, even though my 2 year old could do it, I have to use a accredited installer and they charge fucking heaps.

It is cheaper for me to just buy the batts and do it myself, so this subsidy does fuck all except line the pockets of the installers.

Someone really needs to fix this

But hey, anti-virus software doesn't mean you're not going to get a virus either! Because if it did, and the subjects paid subscription actually worked, it would have saved me doing a fresh install of windows in the first place! (it was just easier, had f all files), So as for the user that doesn't know much I installed one,

And no I'm not a I.T expert, but Im not a dumbass and do know and learn things, so thanks for your input, much appreciated.

But where are our role models?
It is hard for the latest generation to appreciate the role models of the past like sir edmund hilary. These days our role models are sports stars and......

We also have a generation gap that hopefully will close with the next generation. I cant imagine we will be as ignorant with our kids as a lot of our parents were with us. Our culture changed very rapidly in a very short amount of time. The values and environment our parents grew up with were too different from the ones we dealt with. We were the "information generation", a kind of second enlightenment age. We started to question everything around us. For our parents and those of the "do as you are told generation" this was a shock.


We can change the gap with our children but i feel the damage has been done for a lot of individuals and thus their children.

Walking into a computer shop and getting treated like its a high st fashion store.
No one says hi or can I help you, which this time they could.
I know they must get sick of "Just looking thanks"
Do a couple of laps around the shop, try to make eye contact with anyone to say I'ld like to buy........
Do the proverbial shark circling the center counter. No one looks or asks.
Walk out with all my money in pocket.
Was looking at spending $300-500.
I know I  probably should have asked for assistance, I was the only one there and was put off as soon as I walked in the store.
I feel better now. Thanks.
Will save money now for better rig :)

And another time when i was looking for a bday present for someone... (different store to tv bitches)

You must have looked like you had money. Chain stores don't make profit off cash sales, it's all in the finance offers. They more than likely scope out the "less off" looking crowd and then convince them to tick it up on HP.

Working for an IT support firm, open my door wearing work shirt to a vodafone door knocker (was one of those indian-looking fellows who say anything to sign your name up) who treats me like an imbecile. He wanted me to change to vodafone so I could fuck my mysky etc up. Mysky isn't even connected to phoneline due to the amount of arsehole wiring required, he said he'd pay for that and any disconnect fees. I'm like really, you'll pay ~$500 to get a phone line run from one side of my house, just to hook it up to my mysky for which I don't even use any of the features that require a connection?

Cruelty to animals grinds my gears. Especially endangered ones.

Quote
Once a rhino's horn has been hacked off, they leave the animal to bleed to death. The horn is then smuggled out of the country by an international syndicate. The price of rhino horn is £35,000 ($70,000) a kilogram, making it more expensive than gold, according to the International Rhino Foundation. Three poachers came at dead of night, it is believed, shooting her and removing the horn with apparently clinical expertise (some rhinos are crudely hacked and disfigured). The animal appears to have walked for about 80m before collapsing and dying.

Bullshit newspapers that don't acknowledge their interests. For instance, the NZ Herald has breathlessly reported on Jonah Lomu and his "condition" all week: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10755154

Later, they report that Lomu has sold an "exclusive" to a "womens magazine", which happens to be the New Zealand Womens Weekly. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10755463

Then they get the All Blacks in on the act - interupting their training session to spell out "get well soon, Jonah".

All the while, the NZ Herald neglects to disclose that they are owned by APN, the same company that owns (drum roll)....... the New Zealand Womens Weekly. Personally, i'm picking that Jonah isn't as bad as has been made out and the Herald has prostituted it's newsdesk to help out a sister publication.

And that fucken grinds my gears.

Cant wait until those nutjob fuckers die, and realise there aint no fucking paradise but a deep hole in the ground with worms burrowing through you're dead rotting brain.


They also call me racist, for believing in evolution.

How when they "remaster" an album they include any remixes.

example: earthling by david bowie, instead of having the original "I'm afraid of americans" I'm afraid they've replaced it with the NIN + Bowie version, which while good doesn't feel as heavy as the original? that bass is almost dubstep. I think bowie was really close to inventing dubstep with that one.

I don't know, sometimes it works better than normal controls. Like in the latest Killzone's, where it's used to open valves or set explosives. It's not perfect but it beats having a single button prompt then the game going through a preset animation.

Last night really fucking grinded my gears.
RANT ON.

I hosted a smallish a going away party at my place last night and I heard a loud banging at the door at about 10pm once the music started to get going, thinking it's my neighbours I open it expecting to be told to be quiet or something but instead I see 3 drunk 20-something men smelling of beer.
They try to casually walk in thinking they can join the party but their inability to speak a word of English (i'm in Georgia) gives them away.
I block the doorway and push them back and slam and lock the door in their face.
2 hours later as some people start to leave I see 5 drunk men enter my unlocked door, I yell at them to fuck off but they just walk past me and sit on a seat like they own the place.
I start going apeshit and am told by my Georgian guests that this isn't uncommon and could get ugly if I keep trying to get them out of the house, so I have to just stand there trying to keep my cool (which I don't, i'm fucking fuming) while these douche-bags (one of which has now removed his t-shirt) sit on my fucking chairs acting like they are tough men while the girls try and calmly persuade them to leave.
After maybe 20 min they slowly leave and start yelling the few english swears they know from outside and then finish off by throwing a brick through my window hitting my mate in the arm.

So someone calls the cops and they arrive with 2 cars and one of my neighbors comes out acting like a mental patient telling me i'm a bad person and telling the police that I had been having immoral parties or some shit every night for a week. Some other neighbor arrives to inform me and the police that, that bitch be crazy so they ignore her and come up stairs.
After another 15min or so I end up with 8 cops in my house who seem more interested in me than the shirtless brick throwing douche-bags. And after making me fill out pointless forms for like 45min they leave me with a final comment of "You should respect Georgian Law and Georgian Customs".
Because fuck me for having a small party and having a brick thrown through my window by fuck-tards.

TLDR- Throw a party gets crashed by drunk idiots who smash my window with a brick, am told by my neighbor and the police that i'm in the wrong.
Fuck you Georgia

Well IIRC Scalping was made illegal a few years back. The most one is allowed to ask for an onsold ticket is their money back.

But yeh. Whinge whinge whinge.
Deal with it, and don't make promises you can't keep (especially when you know your chances are shit to begin with - why else would you enlist the help of your family?).

Scalping is not illegal, unless the event is subject to the Major Events Management Act 2007
http://www.trademe.co.nz/trust-safety/2012/11/7/ticket-scalping/ (http://www.trademe.co.nz/trust-safety/2012/11/7/ticket-scalping/)

Of course the issuer can void tickets which have been purchased via scalping, which I think is good idea, however hard to enforce.

There are benefits to Scalping, you can always get a ticket, if you are willing to pay the price.


Personally I think the issuer should be required to refund tickets for the same price and sell them again for the same price. Then there would be no valid reason to on sell them on sites like Trade me, then ban Scalping.

Steam grinds my gears.
When you're in another country all of a sudden it'll forget that you pay in USD and switch currencies (after being logged in for a certain amount of time). The games are more expensive in pounds, and not just because of exchange rate to NZ, conversion to USD also leaves a fair few dollars unaccounted for.
Steam community (thus your wishlist) always displays in foreign currency.
But even when you do check out in your normal currency (USD) you get all the way through, then pay after checking currency, then the reciept screen... suddenly $35USD is 35GBP and you've apparently spent twice as much as you intended/needed to. So off you go in a panic to check your NZ bank account, and thank fuck it's only charged in USD ($40NZD as opposed to $70), but that's a serious wind up.

I also hate it how it's so prolific in tracking and fucking your anus and fiddling with your naughty bits like a catholic priest but in a way you mostly don't notice... but makes a page take up 100% of your cpu resources and 80% of your memory... just because some fuckwit yank firm wants more dosh out of you by supplying you 'free' goods (regurgitated rubbish) while selling your info and/or fingerprint to the highest bidder.

I used to have Javascript, but then I discovered it's actually a really neat language, mostly because of it's prototypal origins. I have adopted it so much so, that internal scripting in my applications leverages Javascript :)

The only reason why it's so prolifically haved, is because of the shear number of people that interact with it daily. There are terrible Javascript dev's, just as there as terrible C dev's, just not many people see a direct impact when all they want to do is load their favourite pr0n site.

It's not necessarially that people want to or enjoy using it, it's that everyone else does.

Like Bounty Hunter said, try organising an event involving 20 somethings without it.
Just like when I was young, MSN was used because that's what all the girls used.

It's a tool that's abused more than it's used I guess. Keep in touch with friends and family far away? Nah, sign in, get dozens of feel good messages put on landscape photos, a couple of political activitim type images telling us what we already know (that politics is all shit) and then about 40 pictures of babies that you don't really care about.

There isn't all that much 'keeping in touch'.

The amount of kids (and people) who constantly reach for sugary drinks bothers me. NZ rivals the US for how many fatties we have but none of us want to accept it because of how well our government has branded us as being a nation of fresh produce and sports.

Thus you spend more time defacating and therefore, more time sitting on the toilet.

As a result of this, your percentage of time "on the throne" is higher than anyone elses is and you therefore have a greater chance of being the person present, when said TP runs out.

I somewhat disagree.

If it's the same product, whether you buy it digitally, or in a box, then it should be the same price. Doesn't make any differences whether the bits comes from a dvd, or downloaded from a server.

The idea that digital versions should be cheaper because they don't have to pay for printing CD's, boxes, is just stupid. Those are operational costs.


If of course there are actually differences, i.e Artwork books, collectables, then yes, the boxed version should be more, and marketed as a collectors edition.

Post by: Tiwaking! on October 18, 2014, 10:33:41 am
My biggest gripe is regional pricing.
Nintendo is famous for this. They would charge the same amount of Wii points for all their products. Sounds good, but in practice it means we would pay NZD$14 for 1000 Wii Points instead of the NZD$10 we should pay, because they charge USD$7.50 for 1000 Wii points.

Also: The console is region locked so you do not get access to all of the games
And they dont have the same release date
Even though it is an electronic version

I forgot what my original point was but: Nintendo really suck

Kiwi jihadist mistakenly broadcasts his location

A Kiwi jihadist who claims to be fighting in Syria with the Islamic State has been mistakenly broadcasting his exact location after forgetting to turn off a tracking function on his phone.

Mohammad Daniel, also known as Abu Abdul Rahman, and formerly known as Mark John Taylor, has now deleted 45 posts from Twitter after discovering that he had been revealing his location to intelligence agencies and enemies keeping tabs on him.

Advanced Precision Kill Weapon System
Unit cost: ~ $28,500
APKWS is a “plug and play,” “point and shoot” weapon, and is fired like the unguided 2.75-inch rocket. The weapon is easily assembled and can be shot with minimal instruction, as if it were an unguided rocket

It annoys me as well when someone says 'touch wood', and then knocks on the closest bit of wood they find.



WHY ARE YOU TOUCHING THE WOOD?! What purpose does this achieve? Are you verifying the structural integrity of the table?

Well, I think this will be the last time I ever decide to flat.

After my mid year trip with the mrs (providing it goes well) we'll end up moving in together.

Food going missing purely because they're [flatmates] too assuming - "oh, this must be xxxx's food, they'll be fine with me eating it" thinking it's food that belongs to another flatmate.

I want to invest in another italian steak grill and some knives, but after seeing how many frypans they go through purely because they go from stove top to water without cooling down, I don't want to buy anything decent in fear of it being ruined.

The rate NZ is 3.5%

And I thought having a low one was bad as it increases inflation.

Post by: Xenolightning on January 22, 2015, 06:55:01 pm
Xsannz, you are being a muppet.

Official Lending Rate is what we call the Official Cash Rate in NZ.

In layman's: Lower numbers are to encourage spending, higher numbers to encourage saving. It is altered in attempt to reduce inflation.

The MARKET lending rates are similar. 6% mortgage 13-18% Credit.




Just as a side note, if Canada was lending at 1% PA.

Borrow 1000CAD = 1075NZD

Put in NZD bank account @ 4.5% interest

12 Month = 1123NZD = 1044CAD

Pay interest of 1%x1000CAD = 10CAD

Profit = 35CAD

You made money, by doing nothing. Scale this up as there is no risk, and you make an infinite amount of money and crash the economy.

When mortage rates were pushing 9-10%, personal loans were 14-18%.. Mortgages are half that, loan rates are unchanged..

My guess is because personal loans don't have security. If a bank offered low interest rates on a person loan, they'll get more customers of their competitors, but more risk as well. If too many of those loans go bad, they'll be screwed.

With a mortgage, the bank can just sell your house, so they can afford to be competitive on the rates.

This and there's not much competition in that space as Personal Loans don't tend to make a large return for the bank. Bank's are happy to offer them, but won't fight over them.

Of course if your an individual who can share costs with other flatmates, renting going to work out much cheaper.


But in my case (2 and a half people), we were paying $360 rent for a tiny 2 bedroom place, and now pay $415 in mortgage payments for a decent sized 3 bedroom place.

Yeah, there are still rates, but buck for buck I think we still getting a much better deal then when we were renting.

No, it's that 'myself' is introspective.
The correct word to use there is 'I'. Or 'me', if you're a tad cuntfused.

Using 'myself' or 'yourself' when talking in second person is just... fucking wrong. It does not make one sound more intelligent. The opposite infact.

It's funny watching them fuck their own good kitchen items.

After they had a party, I woke up to make some breakfast. Their only good frypan has been destroyed by some clown with a fish slice. It looks like a chalkboard now.

I used metal tongs on my fry pan yesterday. Because that's how you like it.

I prefer Craigor now that I'm older, and given there is no 12 character limit enforced, having it shortened to 12 characters by dropping out a 'u' just makes it look like I can't spell, but adding the extra 'u' doesn't make it uniquely mine any more, so I'll keep it, but abbreviate.

people who drive at 80kmh in a 100kmh zone, but get to a passing lane and they do 120kmh so you cant pass then slow down....  fecking everytime ... whole Queue  of cars this morning all sitting at 85 the whole way get to a passing lane they all speed up and then all slow down.. fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

Fuck, that ruins me. People who speed up coming up to a passing lane. It's some stupid switch that fires inside a drivers head where they decide to go faster for no reason. If people are lining up behind me on an open road (while I'm going 100kph) and there's a passing lane, I will actually drop back down to 90kph to make the passing safer.

^ This
On the rare occasions there is someone behind me wanting to pass, when a passing lane approaches I will consciously slow down a bit so they can get past safely. It's all part of paying attention to your surroundings.
I say rare occasion because everyone frustratingly drives around at 70-80km/hr these days, unless of course you are at a passing lane.

I was at this NZTA focus group and the NZTA guy mentioned this, he said that as the road widens for the passing lane subconsciously drivers speed up due to the widening of the road(or something like that, was ages ago), also occurs in the transition from regular sized 100kph roads to motorways.

I didn't even know this was a thing.

Court-siding - People watching a game and texting what's going on to someone else so they can make bets on the game where the broadcasting time delayed.

I don't even understand how this can be a thing, who would be dumb enough to accept bets on a sports event that has already happened?!

And it's absurd that they are blaming the people who paid money to watch the game live.

Just broadcast the game live, then it wouldn't be a problem.

I think its more live betting. Like there are bets on who is the next man out, or method of dismissal etc. So if you are quick enough, you can get the bet in before they suspend the betting (because someone has got out so they need to update the odds).

I realise that.

But in my view, if someone is quick enough to get a bet in, then all power to them.

If the place that offers betting does not like that, then they should not offer those kind of bets.

If someone finds that a problem, then I suspect that they've never been good at checking how fast they're going, and thus don't know how to drive.

Tai chi group booted by church

A tai chi class made up of elderly women and arthritis sufferers has been booted out of a church hall over fears they are a threat to the church's "spiritual wellbeing".

The group's leader said the 20 women had been practising tai chi in the Central Southland Presbyterian Parish hall without issue for five years, but were approached by parish council clerk John Willis and told to leave last month.

Willis' approach came "out of the blue" and had left the group shocked and upset, she said.

"[The parish council] decided because tai chi had religious links we'd have to go," the woman said.

"Maybe it did hundreds of years ago when it was started by a Taoist monk, but the classes I teach are for older ladies and arthritis sufferers and have absolutely no religious significance."

The teacher said Willis' manner was "quite rude" and she could not understand why he had not discussed his concerns with her before deciding to exclude the group from the hall.

She had booked the hall for the remainder of the year but had to cancel the booking and find a new hall, which was not as well suited to the group's needs.

"If I could have just talked to them about this before it all happened, we could have avoided this whole thing," she said.

"I've been going to church since I was 13 but I won't be going back - that's how much this has affected me.

"All the other ladies have had to go home and tell their families. It's upset so many people and it's enough to put anyone off the church."

Ad Feedback

Willis said he had written to the leader of the group to apologise for the way he approached the issue.

He had not meant to cause offence, he said.

The council had spent "a considerable amount of time" debating the issue and acknowledged many of the women were achieving better health as a result of the classes, he said.

Willis said while the council understood the programme did not include any religious content, it believed tai chi conflicted with the church's teachings and threatened the church's spiritual wellbeing.

"As church leaders we need to look after everyone in the parish, and their spiritual wellbeing," he said.

"The first commandment is that we must honour God and have no other God before us, and having come from Taoism tai chi is promoting another God."

Willis said he believed most people weren't aware of the origins of tai chi and believed they were just doing exercises.

There had been discussions about allowing the group to remain in the hall if they stopped referring to the activities as tai chi, but the teacher had declined this, he said.

He was saddened that some parishioners had become disheartened with the church.

"We don't have a problem with any individual, it was just the tai chi," Willis said.

"We're saddened that we've upset some people and that they've taken it personally, because that's not what we wanted.

"Sometimes in upholding the truth people get hurt, but I hope they will come back to the church."

Late last year police top brass had warned motorists if they went just 1km/h over the speed limit they would be stopped. But between December 1 and Tuesday, just 14 drivers were ticketed. One was fined for going 1km/h over the speed limit, five for going 3km/h over and eight for going 4km/h over.

Each motorist was fined $30 and incurred 10 demerit points.

In comparison 13 drivers were fined in the corresponding period during 2013-14.

New Zealand First MP Ron Mark has called on police to refund the money to drivers.

He called the campaign a failure as the holiday road toll topped 17 - more than double last year's.

"They should not underestimate the amount of damage this screw-up has done to their reputation and the sensible thing for them to do now is refund those fines," he said.

But a police spokesman said each fine was reviewed and police were satisfied they were issued appropriately.

Am I the only person around here who thinks that the police should not be doing traffic enforcement at all? It was better when the MOT had a separate traffic section for that shit.

Maybe if we split them off again the police would have time to actually you know, investigate real crimes. A huge amount of minor offending goes unpunished in NZ, because police do not have the time/resources/political motivation (no fines income!) to deal with it.

I miss the days when a burglary would have 3 cops cars at your house in 5 minutes and  a truant kid would be dragged home to the parents by the ears with a size 10 up the jacksie (back when the police actually had size standards and didn't hire 5ft midgets).

You know you can get a job as a cop even with a criminal record now, so I probably could if I was even slightly enthusiastic about that idea.. I'd get fired in a week after I took the first prick out the back and beat them to death when they so desperately deserved it.

no because the drip tray for mains pressure has to be on the bottom to collect the TPR overflow and the cold water relief the only way to run it up form there would be some form a catch tank and a submersible pump...

Work has converted a massive car park at the top of campus to a staff only park, accessible by card access. This means that a 300+ carpark is now only used by about 15 people. I can park my car away from other jerks like it's stranded out at sea.

I've got dents on both sides of my doors from cocksuckers who don't pay attention to what they're doing when they get in and out of their vehicle.

However, I have a feeling that work has done this as a way of justifying turning the carpark into something else. "Well, only a few people were using it so we turned into a tire burning yard"...

Client - Yep, all good.

Client: Hi, I noticed that the print quantities on this job you did for me 6 months ago was wrong. Do you have emails confirming what I agreed to?
Me: Hi client, yes, here's an email that I sent confirming final print numbers.
Client: Hi, these numbers are wrong, I initially requested different quantities. I need more, but I want them for free.
Me: Hi client, the print numbers were confirmed by you and where printed.
Client: Hi, sorry, but at the time I was very busy, thought I was confirming different numbers, it was human error. Can you discount further prints please due to a shared misunderstanding?
Me: Hi, here's a new quote for a re-print at a discounted price. Probably should have said something 6 months ago.
Client: It's the suppliers duty (you) to provide the client with what was requested, I appreciate the discount but was expecting more.
Me: (at this stage, don't even know what I'm bothering). Hi, here's the print files, you're welcome to have them printed elsewhere if you're not satisfied with the cost of having the job reprinted.

I solved it by opening the door "No thanks we're fine, goodbye" and closing the door.

He said "Are you aware of whats happening with the deep sea oil exploration"
And I said "I know enough, but lets save us some time, you're going to tell me about it for a while, and then ask me for money, which i'm going to decline to give you, right?"
And he said "uh.. well.. yeah pretty much"
Then we politely said goodbye, and he left.

Much unlike the woman who drove down my driveway, parked in front of my open garage door while I was trying to leave for work, got out of her car and was like
"I know you're busy, but we have been trying to catch up with you for a while, we are in your neighborhood spreading the word! here I have a pamphlet for you"
*rummages through a folder and gives me a pamphlet about jesus*
"Now the stuff in there, thats not just what we say, Its what the bible says, so we have scriptures to back it up!"
.. and looks at me like that's supposed to not only make the pamphlet more legitimate, but also make this situation all ok
I said "right, well bye then" and made an extra effort to throw the pamphlet in the bin.

Oh yeah? Yeah. Because we changed the order after re-purposing the original stock item (to sell to a different order).
Oh so urgent? Yeah. Because it doesn't sit well with me as showing on the wrong screen.
Oh so no impact at all? Yeah, urgent. If we don't get this done we're going to have real problems.
Like the order might catch up to the status on screen by the items actually arriving in stock?
Yes, then we could process it as normal.

^ people who don't understand those coils suck
I remember once, there were people waiting to turn right at the traffic lights, but they were too far over (almost on the wrong side of the road because of a car that was in the wrong place before the lights went red) and they weren't sitting on top of the coils


So I pulled up to the left of them (in the right hand turning lane, on top of the coils) and the lights changed, and then when I went around the corner, nobody would let me merge back in, like I was the one being dumb by trying to 'skip traffic' or something

Exciting news, Tiwaking “tiwaking” ! :-)

Spring.me has joined forces with Twoo and now has 30% more charm, 40% more love and 70% more awesomeness.

And the extra cool thing? Your new Twoo account is ready for you, right now. Your important Spring.me data also made the switch! You're welcome! ❤

Who are Twoo? Well. A google search leads to this fantastic article:

http://techcrunch.com/2013/08/03/a-year-of-spam-twoo/ (http://techcrunch.com/2013/08/03/a-year-of-spam-twoo/)

Quote
Twoo, “the fastest growing place to meet new people,” has been spamming people for over a year.

Users have been complaining that they get unsolicited emails from the app, that the app messages all of their contacts without their understanding, and that it’s unclear how to delete their accounts.

I covered Twoo’s questionable growth techniques a year ago, when co-founder and CEO Lorenz Bogaert said it was “just not clear enough.” He claimed, “We do not send any messages without the prior consent of the user,” and said the company “had already decided to add an additional confirmation step to avoid any unintended actions.”

And yet, a year later, problems with Twoo persist. The connect with friends via email component, which is what users have complained about the most, looks functionally the same as when I wrote about the company a year ago.

Search “Twoo spam” on Twitter (don’t dare trying just “Twoo,” it’s an island of misfit grammar), and you’ll see user complaints from the past three years.

Is anybody else constantly amazed at the apparent performance difference between seemingly huge and slow trucks vs SUV's?

An anecdotal analysis of pseudo drag races from the lights would have me purchasing a B train over the fucking Santa Fe.

Here's how it goes:

Light turns green.
Concrete truck moves away, SUV driver puts down their phone.
Truck 1/4 of the way across the intersection, SUV driver puts car into Drive.
Truck half way across intersection, SUV driver checks left and right.
Truck 3/4 of the way across the intersection, a tradie in his hiace full of paint is behind the truck. SUV driver takes their foot off the brake.
Truck across the intersection, tradie changing lanes. SUV driver locates and applies 2% accelerator pedal.

At this stage the best thing a car company could do to sell me a car, is not sell cars to fuckwits. The fucking salesman will say "Does 0-100 in 7.4 seconds" "FUCK OFF IT DOES, NO SANTA FUCKING FE DRIVER HAS EVER BEEN 100, WE'RE STILL COUNTING THE FUCKING YEARS UNTIL THEY GET THERE"

And it's not really just SUV's, it's every single car that is shitty, hatch backs, sedans, 300Hp, 6 cylinder falcadore. FIND THE FUCKING ACCELERATOR AND PRESS IT YOU MONG.

Sounds like courier just kept it. It should be impossible to allocate a duplicate number, since the things come off of printed stickers. They don't just make one up from the top of their head when they pick up your package. Nor can you apply a physical sticker (with a fucking barcode on it) to more than one package.

I mean you don't even get hard rock during the day, its all emo indie poprock shit I could hear on ZM. You never even hear a downtuned guitar before about 7pm.

Not to mention Bryce and Tom in the mornings and Jono & Ben in the afternoons.. Seriously just get the fuckers off the air and play hard rock and metal.

Seriously, the only station I can stand is The Sound, Robert Taylor tells you an interesting quip about the band, album or song, THEN ACTUALLY PLAYS SOME MUSIC

Every other fucking radio station has dribbling fuck wits nattering on about complete fucking bullshit.

I also cant stand the adverts, every single advert on Hauraki or The Rock is aimed at middle aged men and tradies.

I literally cycle through stations until I find music, any music, I settle for Justin Beiber over Rog. Sometimes my entire commute is the sound of me switching stations until I find music. As soon as someone releases a half decent Android head unit with Spotify radio is fucked.

Mai fm. The edge. Flava.

These are the 3 radio stations I'm forced to listen to daily, and we're banned from headphones as it's a hazard.

The first two dj's play the same songs until 10
Then the next solo guy plays the same songs until 1
Then the next solo girl plays the same songs until 3
Then the next two dj's play the same songs until 5
Then the computer comes on.
and it plays the same songs.

The amount of times that I've listened to "King Kunta", "Shawty I don't mind if you're a whore",Taylord Swift, "I'm a young dad that has to work hard but i'll try to support you child", insert_generic_girl_name_with_generic_love_song , Ed Shereen, Taylor swift, Taylor swift, Taylor swift, "Shawty wont you come my way", "No flexing zone", "I'm a runescape classic man"...

Just my god. My fucking god. It's torture. This is insanity. I'm banned from headphones yet have to listen to this shit. On repeat.

And then.

And - fucking - then.

The Dj says some cutesy shit like "WOWWW YOOO I HAVEN'T HEARD THIS SONG IN AGES"

Hahaha.

I'm also really keen to learn the logic of the exorbitant prices on the Xbox store. It's not about the traffic. I already pay twelve dollars a month for that. There's no printing, manufacturing or logistics.

Xbox marketplace is notoriously inflated.

A lot of digital distributors try to palm off the higher than expected costs due to server hosting and the maintenance involved with said servers.

The Pitchey way of fixing this, get his name, goto the cops, file a willful damage report.

The Lias way of fixing this, If he's young, find his family, turn up with a car load of likely looking lads, politely tell his mother that her son owes you gentlemen some money, and you'd prefer it was settled quietly, but you're quite willing to do very bad things to him if he doesn't pay up. If he's older, has a girlfriend, kids, visits like that can work too.
You'd be amazed how fast people sort their shit out when you turn up announced at their home when only the wife and kids are there. Mothers are good too, once had a lady write me a cheque on the spot to keep her sons kneecaps intact.

One slightly older child who trys to "troll"

A 16-18 year old who has no friends so he tells everybody else to shut the fuck up

Some mysterious mic-less pagens

Quote from: I felt a compulsion to reply
Seems like a neat concept until one considers the reality of it. Unpacking a container to a (semi) permenant setup like that makes it pointless to use a container. But that's by the by. For the most part it is likely structurally unsound as cutting away the sides results in extreme compromise in the rigidity of the structure, which mostly comes from the corrugated panneling, not the support frame at each end. Plus it'd be extremely cold with a lack of insulation, or would suffer from extreme condensation and therefore rot if said insulation if it was added. Designers (architects) often make seemingly neat looking ideas, and the world does need lateral thinkers, don't get me wrong. But one must consider more than just asthetics before thinking it's a viable solution. When I was ten I drew a pretty awesome looking spacestation, but we're still not living amongst the stars. You'd be better off putting a kitset house IN the container.

I designed the most awesome space station when I was 10 with a mate of mine.

We designed the living sections down to the individual rooms, the processes for food, waster and oxygen supply. The engine configuration on the station. I think we made it rotate to produce artificial gravity.

It was for a school project. The teachers were really impressed with us as other kids just did crayon drawings while we did orthogonal projections with detailed measurements.

Quote for a job for a client a few months ago. Client accepts quote, work on job. Client decides they want the job put on hold, fine, but I have to charge out for the work that has happened thus far. Client is OK with this, pays invoice and goes away.

Client comes back a few months later, wants work to resume on job. Begin work, client is happy, work goes to print.

Client emails today complaining why they have another invoice for the complete job.

Client has always been troublesome to deal with. Shit like "can I please confirm a meeting with you later on in the week, I need to finalise other meetings" only to come back to me with "what time are we meeting" and "why haven't you given me an update on this job", "because you asked me to cease work on it while you communicated with your associates about the work you're wanting done".

Things that fuck me off:

Going to a meeting. A few cities over. Cool, road trip. Never been there before either, so that's neat.

Then next thing boss invites himself along. FUCK.

The head of department coming to a low level preliminary meeting mostly to do with technical capabilities rather than anything political. No point in him being there at all. Not least beceause he knows fuck all about IT. Or what we do. Just a control freak that can't handle trusting his staff to do the right thing. Plus we're in the middle of a merger so he's trying to make himself look good, and heard that there will be a couple of new directors at this meeting. And he loves the sound of his own voice, and will likely derail the meeting within seconds and commandeer the entire thing the whole way through (including talking over the top of people who actually know what they're saying - talk complete bullshit over the top of them that is) making the entire thing completely pointless.

And he insists on driving. Stuck in a tin box with this arsehole for 6 hours in the day for nothing, I'm scared for my life.*

Radio Hauranki are hack fucks. They have ripped the intro music from Brooklyn Nine Nine and play it in the morning segment as a lead up to their show. The afternoon show used to play the PS2 boot sound as their intro music.

WHY CAN'T ANY BODY DESIGN AN EFTPOS TERMINAL HOLDER THAT DOESN'T FUCKING SUCK?!?

Literally everywhere I go, you swipe, but because the stupid holder thing is made of loose nuts and sticky tape it flails around wildly so your card twists and jams and flicks out and falls ALL OVER THE FUCKING GROUND. WHAT THE FUCK IT'S ON THE GROUND NOW, so you've got to hold that fucker in a death grip with both hands, like some sort of peasant, while my wallet is sitting on some nearby flat surface waiting for me to forget about it while I restrain the FUCKING EFTPOS TERMINAL! FUCK.

This was so much easier when the robot behind the counter did it for me.

edit: having said that, the people trying to pay at self service is amazing, I've seen a women try to scan her eftpos card with the barcode scanner, a guy once tried to feed the machine two 20's at the same time, and another guy started talking to it.

I have a picture on my phone somewhere of FOUR people at the pump in front of me trying to make sense of the self service device... they eventually gave up

When Z first stating doing concierge service is was pretty cool. They wold fuel up my car while I go inside and pay, and by the time I got out it was all done.

But now that they have pay at pump, the concierge service is a bit redundant (for me at least).

I get out of my car, they walk up and ask "Would you like me to fill it up?"

To which I reply, "NO, GO AWAY, I DO IT MYSELF!!"

Men can't use toilets in this country. Piss everywhere. Not just the floor, but the rim, seat, lid, cistern, walls, fuck probably even the ceiling in some cases. If you're really unlucky you even get shit smear on the seat. Or a fucking can in the bowl. A bar toilet is not one you use if you can avoid it.

Then the fuckers have the worst hygene practice ever. Take your drink in with you (bottle, can, whole pint glass, whatever), piss everywhere, then walk straight out. If hads are ever washed it's by wiping them under a snotty nose.

I organized a game for work using those guys.

I agree, they are very misleading. While the value you get isn't that bad (what you end up paying is equivalent to what you would pay elsewhere), they way they advertise it is outright misleading. $8 for a whole day of paintball! But all that gets you is in the gate, then you gotta pay for all your paintballs. Caused some awkwardness when I had to go back to my workmates and ask them for more money.

I wont go with them again.

However it was actually the most fun I've ever had playing paintball. The play areas at the site were pretty good. (Woodhill)

Someone needs to tell this kid he has a dumb idea.

Quote
Lucas' idea is to develop small GPS trackers that can be stuck to anything from phones, keys and wallets to clothing and bags, which can then be tracked via a mobile app.

The aim is to have the GPS accurate down to a metre, enabling it to be tracked not just to a region but also within a home environment.


Firstly, GPS is not accurate down to a metre, particularly indoors.

Phones already have this feature, so it seams kind of redundant.

How will the trackers communicate, a mobile connection? radio? However will it be powered, GPS devices use a lot of power.

Anyone can come up with an idea. Probably thousands of people have already had this idea.

If he actually had a prototype then it would be interesting. But at the moment he's got nothing (and $5000).

Lucas' idea is to develop small GPS trackers that can be stuck to anything from phones, keys and wallets to clothing and bags, which can then be tracked via a mobile app.

The aim is to have the GPS accurate down to a metre, enabling it to be tracked not just to a region but also within a home environment.

6 months ago, move into house that is riddled with black mould (and leaky roof). Constantly bring it to landlord's attention asking for it to be fixed, ignores complaints. Over Christmas I get sick due to damp, mouldy house (GF has already fallen ill with pneumonia). Email landlord asking for it to be looked at (for the umpteenth time), offers to replace curtains, reply saying this isn't good enough, new curtains will not solve mould problems, he's not willing to do anything else.

Email asking for our tenancy to be terminated on the grounds of not providing house that is up to reasonable living standards. Agrees, and asks us to be out before the 18th - WTF. Email saying you can't force us out so quickly, he responds with "I'm the landlord, I have rights".

Also discover he pocketed our bond and never lodged it with Tenancy Services. Neat.

So, have a week to try and organise a new place and take him to the tenancy tribunal.

Ugh.

Yep. But given he hasn't lodged the bond with tenancy (which is blatantly illegal and he can be done for it) I doubt he cares much.

Retardo, talk to Tenancy, what he's done is called a "Retaliatory Notice" and Tenancy can quash it if you apply within 14 days of receiving it. I realize you don't want to stay in the shithole, but it would give you room to breathe and find something not in a hurry.

Title: Re: What grinds your gears?
Post by: Retardobot on January 11, 2016, 01:45:44 pm
Yeah, we've spoken to Tenancy Services and understand that he has to allow us a certain amount of time. Have made multiple attempts to get in contact with him since he told us to get out despite us throwing the law at him. He's not responding to anything so we have to plan for a contingency. If he refuses to respond to us then he'll receive notice of a tribunal hearing where he stands to be out of pocket $1700 (up to $1000 for not lodging bond and $700 of our bond + any compensation we might go for due to having to throw out clothing infested with black mould).

We have everything in writing, so when we're in court, I can cite everything.

I fucking hate some landlords. Had one not all that long ago who we thought wasn't too bad, despite being a bit tight about maintenance.

Turns out she was giving us shit references and calling us "difficult tenants" simply for asking for maintenance being done, and threatening her with Tenancy when the oven blew up and she wasn't going to replace it for a month.

Another time I  had to take an actual legit property management company (as in a nationwide brand chain, not a small local one) all the way to Tenancy to get them to do maintenance. Turns out the owner was being recalcitrant because they intended to subdivide once we moved out, and much of the work we were making them do would be wasted. Turned out the owner was a bit of a nutter, not long before we gave notice, she sent a couple of surveyors around without warning us or the property management company. We refused to let them on the property because we had no idea who they were, and the no notice had been given. She went postal at the property managers over it and tried to demand they evict us. She turned up in person after we had given notice (luckily I wasn't home) and tried to bully my partner and my mother into letting her and some other consultants onto the propery. Ended up with my mum calling the cops on her, and my mum is pretty much a peacemaking hippy (my polar opposite lol). Was rather glad I made her spend about $20k on stuff that got bulldozed :-)

Title: Re: What grinds your gears?
Post by: Retardobot on January 11, 2016, 02:30:58 pm
I've been told that the Tenancy Tribunal favours tenants because of how scum-laden landlords usually are (as well as property managers. In most cases, the managers will never pass on information to the landlord and just ignore tenant requests, and more so, in Palmy, it seems to be common place to pass on the letting fee to the tenants).

The property we're in; before moving in we were told that the property had been lived in by him (the landlord) so he always took every precaution to make sure it was a great home.

First week in, 5 leaks opened up. Roofer was called in. Membrane in the roof was shot and the corrugated iron had come away from the frame work so whenever the wind kicked up, it blew water in. Roofer said it wasn't up to code so the landlord just got a band-aid fix and had the flashing replaced. 2 weeks later, leaks still coming in through on the front of the house. Roof doesn't have anything to drive away the water from the walls so water just runs down the front, and had been coming in through the window frames so Landlord asks roofer to come back and fill in the gaps where the water was getting in....with silicone... trapping the moisture in the framework /facepalm.

We have a feeling he has been well aware of the mould for a long time and just gets in new tenants whenever someone complains about it. He subdivided the property not long before we moved in and had a new house built on the subdivision behind us, this makes me believe he wanted to capitalize on the land he owned before eventually having to bulldoze this house.

We're certain the framework has rotted out. There is plant matter growing out of the cracks in the stucko on the outside of the house. We've had to scrub moss from the master bedroom window frames and all the curtains have a healthy dose of black mould all over them.

Tenancy Tribunal application submitted.

Emailed him on Sunday asking how he wants us to return the keys, got 0 reply. At this stage I thought "is this guy even reading our messages?" So we decided to drop the keys in at the police station as we did not want to leave the keys on the property or hold on to them (too much liability). Emailed him saying your keys are at the cop station.

Police updated me yesterday he came in to collect them so he IS reading my emails, just choosing to brick-wall us. We went for a drive yesterday and saw that he was at the property after we had finished moving out. Wake up this morning to no bond so have thought "fuck it, lodging a tribunal application, sick of waiting for this guy".

Just lodged it asking for our bond back on the grounds he did not submit it to Tenancy Services, as well as including information about the early termination due to hazardous living conditions. Not going for compensation despite being legally entitled.

Apparently he gets an email alert as I included his email in the application saying I've lodged an application. Hopefully this is enough to scare him into returning our money, at which stage I'll withdraw the app (not telling him this though).

scum-laden [...] property managers. In most cases, the managers [are lazy as fuck and get paid exorbident sums to do shit all], in Palmy, it seems to be common place to pass on the letting fee to the tenants).

Paraphrased a bit there, but that letting fee bullshit is fucking rampant all over the country. Why just charge the landlord when you can double your income and charge the tennant too?

Literally fuck all. Missus had one once that didn't show up to the viewing, then tried to offer it to someone else before us. After complaints they squeezed in a viewing before the other people (first in first served apparently), to which they FORGOT THE FUCKING KEYS (and then tried to reschedule instead of driving FIVE FUCKING MINUTES to get them).

Fucking scum cunts. I ensure to do everything in my power to deal with a landlord that manages their own houses. That way there's no buffer of bullshit between me and the truth, and we can get an impression of the personality/competency in person.

Luckily for us in the situation above the landlord actually lived on the property and was good people. We dealt with them direct for about everything, meaning the agency was actually pretty unnecssary at all. But they don't live there all year around, so I guess there was a bit of security for them if we were shit tennants or something.

Deal direct. Saves great on not getting dicked around. Or paying for stupid shit unnecessarily.

Those photos are at LEAST a year old. Nowhere near indicative of what state the property is actually in.

Quote
Newly renovated, sunny and modernised two bedroom and study home. Open plan living with french doors opening onto a sunny and private courtyard. Designer kitchen with granite bench tops, and lovely features. Gas heating in the living areas, complemented by a pot belly stove in the study (this has a wetback). Landscaped and fully fenced section, with ample off-street parking.
Building inspection and report has been done on this property.


I'm gonna take a guess and assume the building report and inspection was done well before we moved in, as one was never done when we lived there and we've only been out of the place for 5 days.

It has not been modernized. The wetback stove doesn't work as it is not attached to the flu and never has been. It hasn't been landscaped, we simply kept the gardens in good condition. No off street parking as the hospital workers take these along with being right next to the netball court so they're taken up during the weekend and there are yellow no parking signs directly outside of the property.

He's obviously realised that the money required to bring it up to code so it can be livable is too much and is wanting to flick it off by bullshitting any would-be buyers (due to the private sale).

Would appreciate anyone going to the auction and reporting the listing as "listing contains false or misleading information" _b

Exterior is buggered.

Has cracks and in some places greenery growing from it halfway up.

Water would run down the front and then come back in the window frames because the roof is flat and nothing on the edge of the roof to guide the water away from just running directly down the front. How'd he fix this? Have the roofer seal the gaps with filler, locking in the moisture, clever move...

Interior is just as stuffed. Black mould would collect on the wallpaper, if you touched it and smelled your hand it'd smell like you just stroked a wet dog that rolled in its own shit. Cracks in the roof that have actually sagged, we had resigned ourselves to coming back to a house that had a collapsed roof after a huge deluge soon after we moved in.

Water stains on wallpaper that got in through the shitty roof:

Black mould build up on the curtains:

One of the roof leaks. This is also sagging quite a bit:

And how most of the window frames were. This is in the bathroom so you can imagine that the entire frame has probably rotted from the inside out:

The phone didn't boot because of an incompatible install (API update that wasn't made obvious on update info). Fixed that via recovery... So now I've finally got a chance, I find that most of the dirs are devoid of info. fuckers. An update isn't supposed to wipe data.

None of it was important. But I still lament it's loss.

I could have had some kind of backup service I guess (custom rom caveat emptor), but it's more a cry at shit OTA updates. Apparently if I'd had a different recovery installed it MIGHT have been ok. An in any case the last thing I'd have expected it to do is wipe all the stored info from apps that weren't contacts or sms. Maybe stop reading old version DB's or whatever, or fail to run because of some outdated API call, but not flat out remove the data (and only the data, apps all fine) from disk. Weird as fuck. But what's done is done :<

Windows 7 updated itself to a point where it can no longer check for updates.

And of course being windows update, it takes like 20 sequential runs to actually update a machine, it can't do it all at once.

So now I've a half updated system with a broken update mechanism. And the microsoft methods of fixing this (for which there are more than FIVE) all result in ... the same state.

I managed to manually install the patch I needed to get the G15 drivers working though, so that's ok. Motherfucker can stay broken. Every time I run it it bleeds the system of RAM until the entire thing grinds to a hault.

Fuck windows.

Windows 10 is great, and stable if you stick to the mainstream releases.

The broken one xssanz is talking about is the fast ring of the insider program (basically it's an Alpha version)

The release cycle looks something like this:
MS build test group  -> MS Systems Group -> MS internal (everyone) -> Windows Insiders (Fast Ring) -> Windows Insiders (slow Ring) -> Current Branch -> Current Branch for Business -> Long Term Servicing Branch

The slowest two (CBB and LTSB) are only available to business/enterprise customers, CB is "normal" windows 10, WI(SR) is "public beta" and WI(FR) is "public alpha".

For newer systems utilizing UEFI, running rm -rf / is enough to permanently brick your system. While it's a trivial command to run on Linux systems, Windows and other operating systems are also prone to this issue when using UEFI. The problem comes down to UEFI variables being mounted with read/write permissions and when recursively deleting everything, the UEFI variables get wiped too. Systemd developers have rejected mounting the EFI variables as read-only, since there are valid use-cases for writing to them. Mounting them read-only can also break other applications, so for now there is no good solution to avoid potentially bricking your system, but kernel developers are investigating the issue.

Couriers.

Last night, I wondered where an order of mine was, so logged into the site I ordered it from, and did a track and trace to discover that the day prior delivery was attempted and a "card to collect" was left..
I found this a little odd, because I hadn't received such card.

Checking my security footage for the time of "Attempted delivery" sure enough, I see the courier pull down my driveway, in what looks like his personal car, he gets out of the car holding his scanner thing, no card, no package.. he looks at my garage door, looks at the path up to the house, then gets back in his car and leaves... no card left.

This morning, I get an e-mail from another company for something else I had ordered saying "Delivery was attempted"
Wait... I was home this morning?!
Checking the cameras again, courier driver pulls down the driveway, DOESN'T EVEN GET OUT OF THE VAN, waits about 10 seconds, and just buggers off again.
I WAS HOME! how about knocking on the door!!

Maybe it's just me, I just don't like talking to people while holding my dick.

Even if I'm pissing into a toilet, with the door closed, I won't ever talk while pissing.

Hey homies, I know I haven't been around much/at all but I need a place to vent and this has always been an accommodating spot.

Do you know what really grinds my gears?

Fucking. NEON.

Firstly, I get that in a market is almost always good for the end user, except it, it appears, with subscription services. Some competition I really don't mind, especially if the providers become creators and continue making awesome shit like Narcos and Master of None. I gleefully await The Grand Tour on Amazon Prime.

So now, every single time I see a Facebook update from these scum sucking parasites advertising "What's coming up on NEON next month?", I sigh, and cringe as I see the titles of shows and films I wont be able to watch in HD on Netflix. I even tried to watch NEON, but the smudgy low bit rate crap they trickled down the tubes at my TV literally looked like Ned Stark made of dogs vomit mixed up with shit on a stick.

"Hmm, I feel like watching Inside Out....wait....wtf, it's not on Netflix? but all of Disney....wait....no....no....nooooooooooooooooo!"

I can watch Toy Story (1995) in HD on Netflix, and I can watch Inside Out (2015) on NEON in SD. These films are 20 years apart, and so too is the picture quality, except it's backwards. The film released in 2015 has 1995 picture quality, and the film released in 1995 has 2015 picture quality. Does this seem fundamentally wrong to anybody else?

FUCK OFF NEON, STOP BUYING FILMS SO I CAN WATCH THEM IN HD ON NETFLIX YOU CUNTS.

Wannabe terrorist who left America to fight for ISIS came back because 'life was too hard'

Bank clerk Mohamad Kweis had dreamed of a better life but told a local news channel that in reality life is in fact 'really, really bad' fighting for Islamic State.

An ISIS deserter who left the USA to fight in the Middle East claims he found life 'too hard' under the brutal regime - as he hated studying and missed smoking!

Mohamad Khweis, 26 - who was captured by Kurdish forces in Iraq after running away from Islamic State - had dreamed of a better life but says in reality life is in fact 'really, really bad'.

He only fled in December but today he arrived in the US to face criminal charges after being deported - and could now face more than 10 years in jail.

He said: “It’s not like the Western countries, you know, it’s very strict.

"There’s no smoking. I found it hard for everyone there”.

This statement is factually incorrect about 80% of the time.
Lights in busy areas work on a cycle, and the pedestrian light follows that same cycle.

Gotta be pretty late at night when lights are on sensor, or live in a less busy area to have triggers like that.

That... or be turning left. In which case you're fucked anyway, because a stream of people is just gonna keep rolling through until your light is red again. No matter what colour their walky lamp is.

The worst ones are the ones that stand there waiting. Then your light goes green, but so is theirs. AND THEY WALK SO FUCKING SLOWLY. You think you might have a gap, yay! BUT THEN THE SLOW FUCKS FROM THE OTHER SIDE COME. Human slugs. The kind with the gait of a gastropod.

Yup, both sets of lights I use to cross streets walking to work use a push button to trigger, no sensors. One is in the middle of a road, no intersection. The other is an intersection on a one way street, where cars turn left cross the pedestrian light.

Both annoy me when the button isn't pressed, with people waiting.

I quite like the lights where the entire intersection stops, for all pedestrians at once. Then the lights entirely return to letting traffic through.

The House of Representatives overwhelmingly passed a bill giving Congress the power to block any effort by the White House to weaken sanctions on Russia, offering a direct challenge to President Donald Trump's authority.

The vote was 419-3. The legislation moves to the Senate, but it's unclear when the Senate will vote on the measure, which includes new sanctions against Russia, Iran and North Korea. Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker indicated Monday he may want to make some tweaks to the bill, which was negotiated between the House and Senate after the initial version he drafted sailed through on a 98-2 vote.

The National Party has soared in popularity while Labour has plummeted, a new poll on the eve of the election shows.

NZ First has also fallen in the latest One News Colmar Brunton poll and is dangerously close to falling below the 5 per cent threshold.

In a complete reversal of momentum from the previous poll, National has arrested its fall and instead risen six points to 46 per cent. Labour is down seven points to 37 per cent.

Under the latest poll, NZ First is back to holding the balance of power, but only by the skin of its teeth.

Muslims are Locusts. Once they grow beyond a certain percentage then they become intractable and ruin the environment for everyone else. You need to fumigate before the problem grows uncontrollable.

The Muslim Council of Britain said it hoped Sunday's open day would show unity in "a tense time for faith communities". Three times as many mosques took part this year as last year, it said. There are about three million Muslims - about 5% of the population - and an estimated 1,750 mosques in the UK.Feb 7, 2016

Their takeover of a country, what Dr. Hammond refers to as “Islamization,” begins when the population of Muslims reaches a critical mass, and they being to agitate for various privileges.

Open, free, democratic societies are particularly vulnerable. “When politically correct, tolerant, and culturally diverse societies agree to Muslim demands for their religious privileges, some of the other components tend to creep in as well,” he notes.

This is how it works, according to Dr. Hammond:

When the Muslim population remains under 2% in a country, they will be seen primarily as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to other citizens. This is the current situation in:

United States — Muslim 0.6%

Australia — Muslim 1.5%
Canada — Muslim 1.9%
China — Muslim 1.8%
Italy — Muslim 1.5%
Norway — Muslim 1.8%

As the Muslim population reaches 2% to 5%, they begin to recruit from ethnic minorities and disaffected groups, within prisons and street gangs. This is happening in:

Denmark — Muslim 2%
Germany — Muslim 3.7%
United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%

Spain — Muslim 4%
Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

“From 5% on, they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population,” Dr. Hammond notes. “For example, they will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food” and increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature such food on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. This is happening in:

France — Muslim 8%
Philippines — 5%
Sweden — Muslim 5%
Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
Trinidad & Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

Soon they begin to apply pressure to allow Sharia law within their own communities (sometimes ghettos).

“When Muslims approach 10% of the population, they tend to increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions,” Dr. Hammond notes. “In Paris, we are already seeing car-burnings. Any non-Muslim action offends Islam, and results in uprisings and threats, such as in Amsterdam, with opposition to Mohammed cartoons and films about Islam.” These tensions are seen on a regular basis in:

Guyana — Muslim 10%

Riots in Pakistan, 2013
Riots in Pakistan, 2013
India — Muslim 13.4%

Israel — Muslim 16%

Kenya — Muslim 10%

Russia — Muslim 15%

The violence increases when the Muslim population reaches 20%. “After reaching 20%, nations can expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings, and the burnings of Christian churches and Jewish synagogues,” such as in:

Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

“At 40%, nations experience widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks, and ongoing militia warfare,” such as in:

Bosnia — Muslim 40%
Chad — Muslim 53.1%
Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

From 60%, persecution of non-believing “infidels” rises significantly, including sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia law as a weapon, and Jizya, a tax placed on infidels, such as in:

Albania — Muslim 70%
Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
Sudan — Muslim 70%

After 80%, expect daily intimidation and violent jihad, some State-run ethnic cleansing, and even some genocide, as these nations drive out “infidels,” and move toward a 100% Muslim society, which has been experienced to some degree in:

Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
Egypt — Muslim 90%
Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
Iran — Muslim 98%
Iraq — Muslim 97%
Jordan — Muslim 92%
Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
Pakistan — Muslim 97%
Palestine — Muslim 99%
Syria — Muslim 90%
Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

A 100% Muslim society will theoretically usher in their version of peace — the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace. “Here there’s supposed to be peace, because everybody is a Muslim, the Madrassas are the only schools, and the Koran is the only word,” such as in:

Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
Somalia — Muslim 100%
Yemen — Muslim 100%

Dr. Hammond observes this Islamic ideal is seldom realized. “Unfortunately, peace is never achieved, as in these 100% states the most radical Muslims intimidate and spew hatred, and satisfy their blood lust by killing less radical Muslims, for a variety of reasons.”

Once they get rid of everyone, they start eating each other. Like Locusts.
If you dont believe me, find a Punjabi or a Sikh and ask them what life in Punjabistan, the Pakistani side of Punjab, is like.

Also: I dont want a foreign religion which actively promotes death for Atheists and Apostasy and Faggots:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XRCYlZ4XOQ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XRCYlZ4XOQ)
Muslims deny it (Taqiyya is an Islamic juridical term whose shifting meaning relates to when a Muslim is allowed, under Sharia law, to lie). But ask them if they want Sharia law, which directly states the death penalty.

If they say 'No' or 'Absolutey Not' to Sharia Law. Do you know what the punishment is? Thats right.
DEATH


tldr; fuck Islam Im a racist

*sigh* They are all as equally good as each other, Tests is 5 days of cricket, what joy, ODI is probably slightly better because of the mixed tempo, but T20 has its good traits, but a real cricket fan knows the T20 isnt the best format

T20 is the 7's of rugby.
It's all for the crowd numbers...
I'd rather a 50 but 20 is good to watch when it's down to the wire.

US talk show host Stephen Colbert's visit to New Zealand cost Kiwi taxpayers just over $100,000.

The Late Show host was in New Zealand for six days last month, filming segments for an episode of the show that will air in late November.

Tourism New Zealand said while the CBS network had funded the majority of the production, it had covered the accommodation, some tourism experiences and meals for Colbert and 15 crew members.
