Enough to post, and that's all that really matters.

First full lockdown since, IIRC, May last year.

Been sneezing a little and throat a bit scratchy. Feels like allergy symptoms but I guess I should go get tested, especially as a co-worker was visiting Auckland (home of our current outbreak) 10 days ago.

In better news, I learned our 1pm covid briefings have an IMDB page.

Quote:
Set in a dystopian world where autocratic and populist leaders are in charge of the USA, China, UK, Brazil and many other nations. 1pm Daily Update takes place in the imaginary island nation of New Zealand, a utopian society where science, facts, strong leadership and a genuine care for its people and environment take precedence over money and big business.
Reviews are worth a chuckle.

Watching the NZ footage on YouTube now. We have those too, but they are always such doom and gloom, the NZ ones are more positive and upbeat and so I shall watch yours instead.

Downside for NZ vs Finland I suppose is Finland has the superior metal scene.

Makes sense, I guess.

There are reasons why Finland has so many metal bands per capita.

They dont allow it, but the USA does.

I will tell you why, they are garbage people.

I had a business relation from NZ, CEO of an international corporation. We gathered in Atlantic City for a conference with associates.

He took his dick out of his expensive suit in the middle of the room to try to turn-on a female peer.

These are uncultured people.

I for real thought Jerome was continuing the accent joking from the other thread for a moment.

But yeah, assuming this is a real story, dude is a shithead. We've got roughly as many crap people per capita as anywhere else.

Nice to know what you think of the rest of us based on one prick though, thanks!

In the northern hemisphere men undo their shirt to appear sexy, but in the southern hemisphere they have to undo their trousers instead, because they’re upside down.
It’s science, dumbass!

My favorite non american metal is Mongolian.


between the throat singing, the horse fiddles and the lyrics that harken back to Mongol hordes, they are all sorts of badass.

The official video without the english lyrics is prettier but I like knowing what they say.

"If you come as snakes,
We'll become Garuda birds and fly over you.

If you come as tigers,
Well face you as lions with blue mane"

You just know that's some old school shit.

Woo-hoo. Mrs. S breaks precedent. Not just a fully-vaxed person who has contracted COVID, but a fully-vaxed person who has contracted COVID and has required hospitalization.

And I'm a fully-vaxed person who has contracted COVID. So I will be working from home for the next couple of weeks, again.
