Amazing events this last month!!!

Three amazing events that’ve taken place this last months, and which serves to remind us how unpredictable and weird the Universe can really be…



Richard III’s skeleton discovered!


The grave of Richard III was discovered on 4 February, under a carpark in Leicester (fitting, being the 21st Century), and caused a worldwide sensation as this 528 year old King was prominent in British history as well as the subject of a play by William Shakespeare…

Meteor shower over Russia!

Straight out of a science fiction movie, a huge meteor entered the atmosphere and exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk, three days ago. Luckily, it exploded into fragments high up in the atmosphere.

Had it impacted the ground intact, the devastation and loss of life would’ve been far more severe.

It was a small taste of what our dino cuzzies must’ve experienced, 65 million years ago…

Hekia Parata fronts on Campbell Live – Sceptics Society shocked!


campbell live - hekia parata - christchurch schools -  18 february 2013



Yeah, I couldn’t believe it either…

After sending her ‘flunkies’ (see previous blogopost:  Parata, Bennett, and Collins – what have they been up to?) to front for her and take media heat for Christchurch schools closures, the Novopay debacle, and other foul-ups – Education Minister, Hekia Parata finally fronted for an interview with TV3’s John Campbell.

The media training that Parata has been given seems to have worked. Her demented grin…

– was gone.

Meanwhile, in ‘quake ravaged Christchurch, where increased stress is causing children to have nightmares and instances of bedwetting has skyrocketed (see:  Quakes traumatise kids), Parata has decided not to close or amalgamate 31 schools.

She’s only going to close/amalgamate 13 schools (see:  Minister announces fate of Canterbury schools).

Well, that’s that’s f*****g big of her, isn’t it?!

Why not further gut the heart out of a community that has lost 185 of it’s people to a violent,  natural disaster; thousands of homes damages or destroyed; businesses closed; insurance companies and EQC dicking people around; and entire neighbourhoods written off.

In case anyone needed proof that National has no heart, well, look no further.

And for all you National supporters out there who don’t give a rats because it hasn’t happened to you… well, Karma is working over-time at present.

Your turn will come.

To the people of Christchurch, and for those shocked by today’s announcements, I just want to say that a whole lot of your fellow New Zealanders are with you, in spirit at least. I just hope there’s a change of government before Parata can implement her rotten-to-the-core, penny-pinching, policies.

    Always voted National. Never again. I’m staying home in my caravan (house red-zoned) next time. Parata and Brownlee and the whole fucken lot can go jump in a lake.

    NASA Scientists estimate that meteors the size of that over Russia may strike Earth every 10-20 years. However it’s worthwhile looking at:


    A sizeable number of smaller meteors with large explosive yields are fairly regular. 8/10/09 South Sulawesi Indonesia, 31–50 kt (2.5-4 * Japan A-bombs), height: 25 km. Fair number over Russia – imagine many more not recorded taking place over the world’s oceans.

    Another interesting read is:


    A proposed submarine bolide impact crater south of Steward Island estimated to have occurred in 1443. Possible explanation for the abandonment of Maori southern coastal settlements and megatsunami deposits in eastern Australia, beach sand found 150-220 m above sea level (Steward Island) and megatsunami deposits 130 m maximum run-up (Australia).

    The Christchurch school closures are probably an experiment. If National is re-elected we can probably expect the same type of measures taken nationwide. Completely sick of the disgusting smiles of these lunatics in government – were many swayed by these cheap smiles in the run up to election day?

    US tested new weapon, no meteor in Chelyabinsk – Russian LibDem leader

    Trust Zhirinovsky to speak such garbage.

    Just read off Tumeke your role in The Daily Blog looks like a good one.

    Unfortunately Frank, I doubt Parata will be closing down schools in high income, National voting suburbs. The Nats know what side their bread is buttered on.
