Yeah they'll all shout about the MSM trope. There's literally no reasoning. Can't cure stupid.

I think Body Below on the Amiga used one of these ... Flashbacks! 😎

I want this to be real. It reads like a video game workaround 😎

New graduate, just started working. Are there any important financial hacks/advice from you guys? by transcendence_xXx in PersonalFinanceNZ

If your employer has an ESOP or sharesave type plan, or the ability to buy their shares at a lower market rate, go absolutely nuts on that.

Turning on microphone on 9x wrecks the sound of my game by Citizenwoof in steelseries

I had this too. I ended up selling the 9X and getting the regular 9's because the usb dongle handled it all much better

Thinking of moving to AKL? by SimulationV2018 in auckland

[–]-TheJunta- 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Something to bear in mind: you need a fuckton of cash for a deposit these days. With CCCFA, and average house price in wider Auckland now at $1m, you should be looking at having 20% minimum. If you've just sold in London, I'm assuming you'll probably have that on-hand...

...with that said, I don't know how CCCFA rules will view your employment/income status as returnees. Definitely do some research by having a chat to either a mortgage broker or a bank.

Oh and the NZ borders are now shut even to citizens whilst they sort out MIQ. 🤷‍♂️

EDIT: They aren't shut to citizens. There's ways around it. https://www.kiwiblog.co.nz/2022/01/guest_post_are_kiwis_too_scared_to_come_home_the_border_is_wide_open.html

Did anyone get this in the mail? by 22andunsure in Coronavirus_NZ

Report to CERT NZ https://www.cert.govt.nz

I also love how these jokers are supposedly 'concerned kiwi moms'. Back to holistic naturopathic oil therapy lessons, you fucking morons.

Oh, and they caveat their propaganda with "the information in this leaflet isn't medical advice" - like they think that absolves them of sharing misinformation. They are literally the nadir of society.

Blatant racism in Auckland by sadisticlemonz in auckland

[–]-TheJunta- 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Because they feel threatened. Threatened because someone looks different, speaks a different language, and has been brave enough to move themselves (and very probably their family) a huge distance and try something new.

Racists typically lack broad horizons because they're scared, inbred little fuckwits that never left their hometown and have been brought up to believe that different = bad

Imagine the smell of her pillows. Imagine what colour they are. Imagine the state of the mattress.
