Holy Smoke Batman... It's a full house!
Seems that yet again Tech Ed New Zealand will fill one of NZ's largest conference venues to capacity.
I'll be there! Will you? Let me know in the comments and we can catch up.... talk some politics and have a beer maybe.
The Keynote looks fantastic... a great surprise to pull out of the box... checkout what you're missing.

Deviating from the usual TechEd keynote, we are very pleased to bring you Dr. Joseph MacInnis, one of the world's foremost explorers and innovative thinkers. Dr MacInnis was the first man to dive under the North Pole, was a consultant to the Titanic discovery team and the discoverer of the world's most northern shipwreck.

Back of a Cereal Box
Was wandering around the Green Party Website today as stumbled upon their 'Spokesperson for Rainbow Issues' Mr Richard Davies...
Reckons he has
five degrees from Cambridge, Oxford & London Universities (BA, MA, Dip Th, Dip Ed, Dip ESOL).
Methinks that Mr Davies might do well to enrol in a 'How to tell the difference between a degree and a diploma' course. By my reckoning he's still a few short of his five. Maybe he can scrounge a few more of the back of an Organic Cereal Box somewhere...
... and what's all this Rainbow shit! Why can't they just call it like it is- it's gay rights! Good on them for having a spokesperson on it but 'Rainbow Issues'!?! Give us a break!

Sue Kedgley is pulling the wool
Compare the Sue Kedgely release
With the Official Food Safety Authority release
She is a fruitloop! I'm too busy working to really have a decent go at all of her claims but to take but one:
Even then, mussels and oysters were found to contain elevated levels of heavy metals such as arsenic, cadmium and lead.
Seafoods have always and will always have high levels of these metals because the environment in which they live has high levels of those metals as a result of quite natural phenomena. Even the Greenie web sites note this.

When pretty much everything sounds fantastic... Trance sounds the most fantastic...

We drew the curtains and darkened the room. Justin played for hours. Dreamily I would once in a while say things like, "Could you do the 2nd Area again? That's my favorite."
After many of my langorous gasps and moans, we stopped playing, and tried to analyze the gameplay experience. "I don't know exactly what the game designers intended with that trance vibrator thing - but it had to be this, right?"

Rod Donald from The Watermelon Party
Seems like most countries have a Watermelon party.... Green on the outside and red in the middle....
Here is former Social Credit pinup boy Rod Donald and Watermelon MP;
Yesterday's announcement that the Electrolux factory in Christchurch is shifting to Australia, with the loss of 150 jobs, is a reminder that our manufacturers need nurturing if they are to survive," said Rod Donald.
'Nurturing' is euphamistic watermelon speak for 'Protected by exhorbitant consumer demand killing tarrifs and taxpayer wallet destroying subsidies and corporate welfare handouts'.
P.S. This post is really just an attempt to see if I can get the #1 page on Google for a loony left wing MP.... I'm already doing pretty well for a Loony Conservative Christian Think Tank
