    Re: sport glasses

    But you did not say WHY you would want two pairs of glasses. You can only wear one pair at a time. So what do you do with the other pair? Give them to someone else? I just don't understand why you...

    Re: sport glasses

    When talking about Specsavers, I see their advertising talking about a special deal when you but two pairs of glasses. Why? What do you need two pairs of glasses for? It's not as if you wear you...
  3. Re: For those of us that are not familiar with judo or any other of the martial arts

    It's not "a slap after landing", it is a slap on landing which is that which helps break the fall. So it is not a sound effect as you say, but an integral part of the fall.
  4. For those of us that are not familiar with judo or any other of the martial arts

    Have you seen the Ministry of Health ad on TV? The young girl throws the man to the floor. Nothing extraordinary about that. In judo you learn how to throw someone bigger than yourself, but what is...

    Re: Help with Tinywall firewall, please

    Thank you for your replies, everyone.

    The consensus seems to be that I don't require a firewall as the Windows built in firewall which is all I need. I was told that a firewall was a good idea...

    What an absolute waste of money!

    Think of all the good that amount of money could do.

    You obviously are very anti religion. That puts you up against organisations that are in the majority of the world's population. Just because you have no time for church going does not mean that...

    Ha! Ha! Yes. I have heard that one as well. Used to take the occasional "maori day" off myself. I was REALLY sick! (Sick of work.):rolleyes:

    Re: What's with all the fuss about Matariki?

    At least it means something to someone - it's a day off, a long weekend. That will give them time to go somewhere for a break, so it's not a total loss.:rolleyes:

    Ah, now I know what you mean. I did not know they were called that. I wondered if that was another name for jiggers. Do they still use jiggers?

    Re: What's with all the fuss about Matariki?

    I think that you are right. It is tokenism.

    But your "soon be as many Chinese as maori" is not as correct. They are Asian and not necessarily of Chinese origin. Taiwan is one small example.

    What's with all the fuss about Matariki?

    Why are they making such a fuss? They are treating it as if it is something new. But we have known about the pleiades cluster (also known as the seven sisters) for aeons. I don't see why we need all...

    We rode the Eurostar from London to the Gare du Nord in Paris (about 20 years ago) via the Channel Tunnel - 300kph - 2 hours. And like the TGV (as psycik says) the Eurostar is very smooth. It is...

    They had a luggage compartment at the rear. I think that they carried small parcels as well. Certainly they delivered newspapers. I travelled between Ward (80km south of Blenheim) to boarding school...
