  • If you ware wondering where New Zealand is – it is under the brightest bit.

    And why exactly are we surprised when there is an earthquake?

      Speak for yourself. It doesn’t surprise me one bit that we have earthquakes. Of course the fact that we have an earthquake commission doesn’t surprise me either.

      NZ. Land of bureaucracy, commission of inquiries, working groups and taxpayer funded consultants!

      As a rule they do startle me.
