    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

    The problems we face today are because the people who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who vote for a living.

    one of the problems with recording overseas vaccinations is that its being faked. so they need to have a system that can connect back to their country and into their database and thats only going to work with a few western countries.

    When I came through managed isolation a few months ago I had to present a covid test. Had one from Japan, it was by a private company and all it said was that I was negative- no stamp, no verification, nothing. Air NZ sighted it at Narita airport at boarding, and then when arriving at Auckland they had special queues set up before going on to customs/immigration- they just sighted it and then handed it back.

    Heck there have been stories recently of people faking mask exemption papers and getting caught lol. ****'s crazy.
