    Verboten. Sex at heights.

    A proposed "mega brothel" in Auckland's (that's in NZ for those who knowledge of cities extends no further than Memphis) CBD would be an insult to the city's heritage and offensive to residents, according to public submitters.


    Low-rise sex is OK.

    But we have to cater for dizzy American tourists somehow.

    Dear Santa,

    I want a zombie bunker that will withstand the inevitable collapse of our nation's corrupt leadership, the dark cabal the commands them, and the morons that make most of my countrymen.

    Ooops. An NZ scientist has discovered a new rocket fuel.

    NASA, the US military, Lockheed Martin and other assorted US companies have arrived en masse to admire it.

    A Maori trust official in Northland is apparently angry that thieving bees are gaining unauthorised and unpaid access to Maori manuka (a flowering bush) and is threatening retaliation.
    These people don't know when to quit. As individuals they are no worse than anyone else. When they get organised, claim a multitude of absurd rights to natural resources (which have included water and air) and demand compensation, they become laughable.

    Shucks.

    Forbes magazine has rated New Zealand the best country on the planet to do business in.It ranked "tiny" New Zealand at the top of its list, bumping it up from the second place last year. The South Pacific nation excelled because of what Forbes called a "stable" business climate, transparency and an environment that encouraged entrepreneurs.
    New Zealand came first for a lack of corruption, a low level of red tape, a high level of personal freedom and strong investor protection.
    We are, of course, delighted to be able to give Americans and Poms something to aspire to.

    Especially corruption-wise.

    New Zealand. Helping to save American culture. (Heaven only knows why.)

    Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) is betting that the upcoming release of the first of the three Hobbit movies and the new James Bond movie Skyfall will restore its finances.Chief executive Gary Barber was upbeat about Sir Peter Jackson’s ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ during a conference call with investors on Friday.
    The Hobbit was financed up front by Warner Bros, but under a joint deal MGM will repay a share of costs out of the upcoming proceeds.
    After that, Warner and its New Line unit, will split proceeds with MGM, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
    .
    You're welcome.

    You're welcome.

    That is what I am talking about. Can't wait for the Hobbit. Although I am not sure how stretching it into 3 movies is going to turn out.

    The missionary spirit is not dead

    There was an overwhelming sense of the All Blacks not wanting to publicly dissect their 42-10 victory against Italy. The post-match commentary was polite, bland and decidedly on-message as far as the game's wider stakeholders would be concerned.All Black coach Steve Hansen preferred to talk about the performance of the Italians rather than delve too deeply into where his own troops might have some issues. He also won serious brownie points for suggesting the occasion was not purely about the All Blacks securing a win - there was also a wider obligation to promote rugby in Italy, something that most definitely happen on their last visit in 2009.
    "The 70,000-odd people who watched the game would have gone home with the idea that rugby is a great game," Hansen said. "This was much better than last time we played [in Italy] and I'm very thankful for that.
    "We are conscious of the fact we are here to make Italian rugby popular as well as come here to play a test match and I think today that has happened.
    "I'd like to congratulate Italy on playing great game of rugby. I thought their attitude to the game, their physicality to the game and their commitment to the game was outstanding."
    We also extended the same "development" philosophy to Scotland last week by thrashing them by 30 points with another second-string team.

    Somehow we think they will learn to love that.
