    What do you think would happen?

    Every week ish we go up to the local four square....this is a Mob hangout, the shops up there.
    Watched an argument in the pie shop one day.......

    Haven't been mugged, or bothered yet.

    And once in mataura I had a job to go to, couldn't find address, street numbers seemed to be missing. No-one in sight except some mob guys have a punch up in the middle of road, literally middle...

    Stopped in the end to ask.
    They stopped beating on each other to assist and show me road continued past railway tracks, and as I drove off, in the mirror I could see they had resumed the fight.

    But we polite and helpful to me.

    That was a great Rocket-Lab launch - the only thing wrong is that it is now an American-owned company.

    I am a really pro-kiwi sort of guy.
    Very patriotic.
    But when I first read about Rocket Lab and Peter Beck I though they must be joking.
    There is no way little old NZ can do this and with a new type of engine.
    I thought of Peter Witehria and his no flat batteries
    But I took it all back when he launched the first rocket successfully and then an actual payload.
    So what colour is your Adkaf?
    Have you joined Proud to Be Kiwi yet?
