    Lockdown?

    Um..... yeah about that. So I live in Otaki, but the day they announced there was going to be a lockdown I was flying down to see my missus in Lyttleton.
    So instead of being in self isolation in a closed pub with beer that needs to be drunk before it goes off, I am here in Lyttleton being thankful I remembered to bring more than one set of underwear.
    On a side note. My earphones got stood on the other day. Where on earth can I get a replacement pair? I normally go into JB HiFi or Noel Leemings as I get a staff discount there, but all the online stores are closed.
    And it is Lyttleton, not a lot of shops here, even when they're open

    It's not the least charm of a theory that it is refutable. The hundred-times-refuted theory of "free will" owes its persistence to this charm alone; some one is always appearing who feels himself strong enough to refute it - Friedrich Nietzsche

    Is it worth shutting the world economy off over .1%?

    And before you say yes, is this the new norm? Every SARS, Bird Flu or the like will now generate the same reaction?
    I think there's been too much hysteria over illness lately, panics over mumps, measles, now these..and look at the damage it will cause, far, far more than if left alone.
