    • Extremely clever and creative. By the look of him he is not that old –early teens at the most. He will go a long way in some sort of engineering field.
      But he must get incredibly bored at school listening to all the woke BS, unless his parents have him in a good private school.

      • Hopelessly passing your time in the grassland away
        Only dimly aware of a certain unease in the air
        You better watch out
        There may be dogs about
        I’ve looked over Jordan, and I have seen
        Things are not what they seem
        What do you get for pretending the danger’s not real
        Meek and obedient you follow the leader
        Down well trodden corridors into the valley of steel
        What a surprise
        The look of terminal shock in your eyes
        Now things are really what they seem
        No, this is no bad dream
        The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want
        He makes me down to lie
        Through pastures green He leadeth me the silent waters by
        With bright knives he releaseth my soul
        He maketh me to hang on hooks in high places
        He converteth me to lamb cutlets
        For lo, He hath great power, and great hunger
        When cometh the day we lowly ones
        Through quiet reflection, and great dedication
        Master the art of karate
        Lo, we shall rise up
        And then we’ll make the bugger’s eyes water
        Bleating and babbling we fell on his neck with a scream
        Wave upon wave of demented avengers
        March cheerfully out of obscurity into the dream
        Have you heard the news?
        The dogs are dead
        You better stay home
        And do as you’re told
        Get out of the road if you want to grow old

      …. are far more likely the result of how we’ve been mistreating mental illness, depression and behavioral problems ….

      …. Only after antidepressants became commonplace did mass shootings really take off, and many mass shooters have been shown to be on antidepressants

      Antidepressants, especially selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), are well-known for their ability to cause suicidal and homicidal ideation and violence ….

      Then other tools come into play for use by the “tool”, to be able to complete his ruthless tasks more efficiently.

      Perhaps New Zealand’s non-treatment of these problems may have fatal collateral damage for the individual;— but nor is a form of that “non-treatment” aggravating to higher such degree?
      Or is there an increasing risk from some of that medication building up.

      It does make wonder what dl is on? as she seems to shoot up an entire country.

  1. Disruption in the global supply chain is among the reasons farmers are facing price rises for fertiliser once again.

    Prices have increased steadily over the past two years due to multiple factors, including hold-ups in the supply chain, the war in Ukraine and countries like China not exporting as much product.

    The prices of some products have doubled in the last two years which has prompted more farmers to look for cheaper alternatives such as chicken manure or seaweed-based fertilisers.

    One of the country’s largest fertiliser companies, Ballance Agri-Nutrients, notified farmers prices of its fertilisers would be lifted this week by between 6 and 25 per cent.

    Urea will rise $90 a tonne to $1330, Sulphurgain 30S has gone up $140 a tonne to $590 a tonne while DAP has increased 20 per cent to $1795 a tonne.

    • Viking ,I was living in Southern Germany in my 20s and was amazed that it was common for farmers to spray treated human effluent on there grasses, they had huge fan like machines that were towed behind tractors and it would spray the mostly liquid fertilizer about 20 meters.
      They’ve probably been stopped from doing it these days as the consumer wouldn’t like the thought of eating anything off the grass that had their own shit spread all over it.

    • I hope theyre not gunna tax me on capital gains made for the fert ive still got stored in the shed!

      Through the winter at work we feed about 140-150kg per day of urea, over 10-14weeks that adds up to quite a substantial cost. Then once the moos leave groundwork/planting/balage season starts and i haul in many truckloads of fert, glad i dont pay the bills as some truckloads last year were 15k a pop and even worse now… dont get me started on fuel grrrrr

      Our neighbour was complaining other day their fert bill last dairy season increased 150k on the year before! Maybe theyll vote for maori party so urea willbe banned by 2026, thatll save them a 200k+ //

          Mind you jimmy 2 mums and scribble face would likely want farmers on a terror watch list too if they have/use synthetic fertilisers.

          • That’s why I had to get out of Te Awamutu. 13 years ago I had a fertiliser factory right in the middle of TA. Neighbors were the warehouse, countdown, a dentist, and the working men’s club.
            I often had 4-5 tones of ammonium nitrate and urea.
            If that lot had gone up it would have taken half of TA off the map.
            Shifted out to Mystery Creek and they changed the laws about the storage of AN. This was after the incident in Bluff when a boat carrying tons of urea had engine trouble. They were worried about the urea getting mixed with the diesel fuel from the boats’ storage tanks.
            Miners used urea and diesel as a cheap form of gelignite.
            If that boat had exploded all of southland would have been affected.

  2. More green house gasses needed!

    Carbon dioxide shortage threatens to take fizz out of craft beer
    Tom Pullar-Strecker05:00, Jun 18 2022

    Drinks-makers are having slow production and run down their stocks as a result of a shortage of carbon dioxide, after supply problems at the country’s last remaining producer of “food grade” fizz.

    Businesses warned in March that the closure of the Marsden Point oil refinery, which used to produce much of the carbon dioxide needed by industry as a by-product of refining, could impact a wide range of food production firms.

    But now separate issues have been confirmed at a gas processing plant at Todd Energy’s Kapuni gas field in Taranaki, which since the closure of the Marsden refinery has become the country’s only commercial supplier of liquid carbon dioxide, including “food grade” carbon dioxide.

  3. If you haven’t seen this Kurosawa masterpiece it is now on You Tube. I saw it when it was released in London in 1975 and the impression it made on me has lasted all my life since. It took me many years of searching second hand bookshops, until the advent of AbeBooks, to find the book upon which the film is based. This is one of those rare occasions when the film is even better than the book.

  6. So Maori had such a large sealed roading network in New Zealand prior to the evil Colonialist coming to this country, it was so good, no Maori died.

    But since the evil Colonialist bought their Mk 2 Zephyrs and other steel Waka’s, to this once sophisticated pre Colonialist country, things have turned real bad and in Tauranga they are employing a Maori Road Safety Co-Ordinator to sort things out..

    The candidate has to be fully versed in Te Reo, be well connected in Maori Communities and have to work a 40 hour week.

    That last requirement should cut the applicants to bugger all.

    And you who live in Tauranga are paying for this Bullshit.

  8. The American legal system is totally screwed. This from Simon Black at Sovereign man.
    “GEICO to Pay $5.2 million to Woman Who Caught STD in Her Lover’s Car
    A woman caught a sexually transmitted disease, HPV, from her romantic partner while engaging in unprotected sex in his car.
    But luckily, her lover’s vehicle was insured by GEICO car insurance. Naturally, this lady contacted GEICO seeking a settlement “for her injuries and losses,” sustained while inside the vehicle.
    GEICO rejected the claim, because “damages claimed did not arise out of the normal use of the vehicle.”
    But when the case went to arbitration, the arbitrator ruled that the insured “negligently infected” his lover with HPV, and awarded the woman $5.2 million.
    And as ridiculous as it sounds, when GEICO appealed the ruling, the Missouri Court of Appeals affirmed that GEICO must pay $5.2 million to the woman.
    What do you think— will an entire cottage industry of back-seat-related claims rain down on insurers across the US?
    Gee I wonder if our insurance premiums are going to rise as a result of such frivolous lawsuits… “

  9. Bernard Hickey should run a successful business before giving advice. How to extort your boss from a socialist “expert”.

    Why expert recommends asking for 7 percent pay rise right now despite recession fears
    https://www.newshub.co.nz/home/money/2022/06/why-expert-recommends-asking-for-7-percent-pay-rise-right-now-despite-recession-fears.html

    Despite the uncertain economic situation, business journalist Bernard Hickey told Newshub Nation rampant inflation and staffing shortages make now the perfect time to ask for a pay rise.

    “They can also get, in many cases, cheaper housing costs so if you feel like you’ve got something special and that your boss is a little bit worried you might jump on a plane to Australia then yeah, go and ask,” Hickey said.

    “And if you can’t get it [a 7 percent pay rise] from this boss, get it from the next one and get a sign-on bonus as well.”

    • Did you read this comment Kea? It’s delightfully tongue in cheek:

      ……”Choices will HAVE to be made if the carbon supply in the atmosphere is reduced to feed the world because crop yields and food production WILL lesson if the CO2 isn’t there to feed these plants we depend on to have a food supply. The animals we grow to eat also have to be fed.

      One solution is to harvest the CO2, liquefy it and develop a ground treatment to resupply this nutrition to fields and greenhouses to keep food yield high. Carbon or regenerative farming will also be necessary reducing the chemical farming done today.

      Removing all the CO2 will cause famine without supplying it some other way?.”……

  10. Well, whoever guessed Matariki, the very recently found Maori New Year and now holiday had tradition feasts and food that will be served up like this.

    “Grant Kitchen is a very prominent figure in Māori cuisine and the National President of NZ Chefs Association. He will be serving up two special Matariki dishes at Apiti Tavern & Eatery. If you fancy the idea of smoked pork belly, bacon hock broth, horopito and kūmara gnocchi with wild cress; or kawakawa and rēwana crumbed smoked beef cheek, crispy rocket, cauliflower purée, Tuaropaki red pepper and tomato pastie, truffle and green peppercorn demiglace.”

    I did not realise, Pork, Gnocchi Beef Cheeck, Rocket, Tomato Paste and Cauliflower we traditional Maori dishes served up to celebrate Matariki, all being here before Jim Cook and Joe Banks sailed to this country.

    Soon no doubt you will be paying royalties to the Traditional Owners for these foods.

    NZ Ski chief executive Paul Anderson, Labour MP Rachel Brooking, Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and Remarkables manager Ross Lawrence celebrate opening the ski fields opening day for 2022.

    Home repair costs rise 20% due to labor shortages and higher materials prices
    TOKYO — Many elderly Japanese face an uphill battle to keep their home as the costs of repairing and maintaining property continue to rise amid chronic labor shortages and higher materials prices.

    More than 90% of those in their 60s and older who head families of two or more owned homes as of 2021, according to a survey by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications. But many seniors find it hard to finance the growing cost of home maintenance.

    The nationwide consumer price index shows that the cost of “work and other services for repair and maintenance,” which relate to the upkeep of the house, such as exterior painting and plumbing work, rose 20% or so in about 10 years through 2021.
