We mock those reporters on TV that are doing the live-cross. You know, they get asked to stand in a storm while telling you not to go outside and stand in a storm.
But their job isn’t as easy as it looks. Especially during live broadcasts. Read more »
Awesome revenge. A woman is selling her cheating partner’s secret fishing spots GPS data on Trademe.
Guys, beware a woman scorned.
It seems nothing is sacred when it comes to a spurned girlfriend’s vengeance – even a bloke’s secret fishing spots.
A Waikato teacher – wanting to be known only as Angela – is selling her ex-boyfriend’s GPS fishing co-ordinates on Trade Me.
Angela hopes the co-ordinates will be bought by a “nice guy” who she believes deserves them more than her ex-boyfriend.
The GPS markings for the Bay of Plenty and many other areas of the North Island are being sold individually with a start price of $10 and no reserve.
“My ex-boyfriend is an avid and very successful fisherman who asked me to protect his collection of GPS fishing spot co-ordinates (with my life no less). Not a problem,” Angela wrote on the auction.
Listed on Friday night, the auction closes on Thursday and has gained substantial interest.
“Absolutely incredible. I only listed it on Trade Me last night and by this morning I had 650 responses,” she said.
Angela said she had been living with her fishing-mad boyfriend for six months before he spun her a line and left for Australia.
“We were living together and he got up one day and said ‘I’m going to live in Australia’ without any consultation. He gave me less than 12 hours’ notice and up and left.
“Basically he left with just a bag, which happened to be my bag, and left me to sort everything out at this end.”

Bullies are cowards. But what do you do when some bully coward keeps taking your drinks? You set him up is what you do.
background: Relative of a close friend (we’ll call him Todd) carried mountain dew in his backpack to school every day. For a few weeks, this bully (“Brian”) would go in his bag, say fuck you, and drink the mountain dew.
Fed up with this and being a cunning lad, last Tuesday Todd drinks the mountain dew before class, and pisses in the bottle. Brian drank the piss, shat brix, and Todd emerged the victor that day.
Now, Brian’s family is threating to sue, claiming Todd endangered Brian’s health. Todd’s family is apparently shitting and scrambling to collect character references for Todd from teachers, letters from doctors saying urine isn’t harmful, and generally thinking their son is a psycho.
I applaud Todd and think that he should walk into court holding a bottle of piss, it’s freedom of expression, some people like piss filled bottles, but IANAL.
Edit The school became aware of the incident when it happened. I believe Todd was suspended for a short period of time. The principal is actually instructing Brian’s parents to press charges because the school doesn’t want to get further involved
The first comment at Reddit solves the issue quite easily.
the bully stole Todd’s piss. Todd cannot be liable.
The second comment really sorts out the issue
Exactly. I would threaten to counter-sue for theft of personal property for stealing his beverages, invasion of privacy for entering his backpack without permission, and harassment for the constant bullying. That should shut them up pretty fast. Tell them you want to involve the police and press criminal charges, not just small claims court.
