    Prime Minister having tried his shaka hand sign on Police, then tries to disguise it having failed to impress.

    The shaka sign, sometimes known as “hang loose”, is a gesture of friendly intent often associated with Hawaii, surf culture, and public school pride.

    Anyone know what has happened to the Chris Trotter, Bowally Road blog?.

    That is a classic emotional sign that the person feels uncomfortable, holding your wrist or arm denotes that you need to relax. Remember, your parent probably did the same when you were you a child.

    “Sir, um we left that tape you gave us on the toilet window sill. Can we come back in and get it?”

    “Oh that.. it’s at sea now.”

    No he’s just telling the constabulary that young Todd is not home today and try again another time.

    Auckland Council is recladding its high-rise headquarters in the central city with aluminium composite panels – a building material linked to the Grenfell Tower fire disaster in London.

    The Alucobond PLUS panels being used on the 31-storey tower conform to the New Zealand Building Code and fire safety standards.

    However, the panels are more combustible than an alternative product, Alucobond A2, which is classified as 98 per cent non-combustible in some countries. Alucobond A2 is a requirement for use in certain European countries like Germany.

      Thanks for the heads up.

      Is this what the modern hell is? To have the air saturated with pulses of information, too much of it, and still have flammable panels put on high-rise buildings when everyone knows, and best practice knows, it shouldn’t be an option. It’s like a madhouse that we live in really with people paid lots to do their job spending the money on finding ways not to do it.

    ‘This is not the employment dispute you are looking for’.

    “Don’t tell me your problems, I’m not a lawyer”

  10. And this is what it looks like… when doves cry.

  11. David Mac 11

    ‘You won’t need those, I’ll cuff myself.’

    “I did not give New Zealand the fingers, Officer. As you can tell, I have them firmly in hand.”
