KFC is delicious.

Speaking of The Rabble, I went to their gig at the masonic a couple weeks ago. There was a good band playing with them called Tempo38. Anyone heard of them?

Good stuff.

does it not worry you that they might be mining for uranium to create bombs ?

when you say F*ck the american bullsh*t ... do you mean you support the middle east with what they have been doing ? ..

if so .. do you agree with petrol prices rising as a result ?

This country should move onto self sustaining hydrogen fuel cell production (like the Netherlands or was it Greenland? (read it on New Scientist somewhere)), and stop relying on the rest of the world to supply our fuel.

If they want to create bombs, it is their right to do so. Good on them I say. If you are too blind to see, the US are in control of the fuel prices. I do not support middle eastern religion and terrorist tactics, I do not support killing innoscent people, however I support them in the war against US.

If it wasn't for US in the first place, there would be no war.

I agree Grim_E, there are always two sides to every story, and then theres the truth...
for instance, do YOU call it Israel or Palestine? the people that live there, are they Israelis or Palestinians? how long has it been Israel? the jews say for thousands of years, the Palestinians say never, the history books say less than 60: Israel (as we know it today) was CREATED by the UN post-WW2 to 'house' homeless jews, in the process they made thousands of Palestinian Arabs homeless... huh?
here's another one: we call it Kuwait, but before Great Britain 'drew a line in the sand' (incidentally where the saying came from!) in 1939, it was called Southern IRAQ, and the reason why? to claim the oil there they needed to make it there own, so they did, with a stick, some sand and a shit load of deaths! now a few years back I remember a particular Hussein claiming that Kuwait belonged to Iraq and everyone cried "bullshit": check yer history folks!
now of course, Kuwait (as one of the richest nations in the world) doesnt want to be a part of one of the poorest nations (Iraq) anymore does it: so enter more confusion.
now I am not in the business of taking sides with megalomaniac world rulers so I am not here to argue WHO is right or wrong, you need to make your own decisions, and when you do, be fully informed so it is YOUR decision and not just you yapping away with someone elses words and ideas.
It is well known now that the biggest practitioners of terrorism are governments involved in colonialist/imperialist state terrorism plans and actions, the biggest of course being the USA. most small 'terrorist' acts are people like you and me who have had everything ripped from them, simply fighting for their lives and what they believe in, their home. you could probably strap a bomb to yourself too if you had seen your whole family raped and murdered in hideous ways in the name of 'western freedoms'. this is not terrorism (though it uses terror) - this is war - urban guerilla war to be precise!
and none of this even includes the whole petrochemical (dupont) vs hemp debacle that occured (coincidentally? I think not) around 1939 too, and how the whole world economy could have been built on hemp by now instead of petro-plastic/nylons (all conspiracy theories link in to each other somehow), too f'n bad for us huh?!
monologue one finished...

My boss was at one those stupid f*ckin' Whatever In The Park concerts and saw some dudes playing guitar a few meters away. When she got a bit closer she realised it was Jack Johnson. She also got flattened by some 6ft dude doing a cartwheel.

I read an interesting take of this a few days ago:

http://www.aardvark.co.nz/daily/2006/0227.shtml

Some New Zealanders are also making promising research with a biofuel crop:

http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/story.cfm?c_id=5&ObjectID=10370386

NZ is very small given the scale of the global fuel market. The best thing we can do it produce our own alternative fuels - we've certainly got the arable soil to do it!

It certainly can be done, just look at Brazil, a good percentage of their vehicles run on ethanol, produced from sugar cane.

I think there's a video somewhere of Temuera Morrison driving his jet-powered go-cart. He didn't seem too overly thrilled with the experience! Laughing
