I have a saying that goes: The point of equilibrium has passed; satire and current events are now indistinguishable.
Here's the proof:
Ooh look! A new post.
A beautiful lesson in the human species and how society works.
I was scrolling through the latest list of top-level domain extensions, just to see what's new, when I was struck by the highest and lowest prices to buy one. These are the .science, etc that can now be bought and used instead of .com, etc. Prices range from the single example of extensions priced at $9-95, to the one at the opposite end of the scale, which is a staggering $4014-95. By comparison, a .com extension costs $21-50.
The most expensive extension? Predictably:
While the cheapest of all domains is .work.
26 October: A new low in policing. The filthy pigs using the cover of breath-testing to take details of euthanasia advocates. Little wonder they attract pejoratives like "pigs" and "filth".
A note for readers: I haven't posted anything new here for a while, and don't intend to do so unless something truly startling happens.
There are two reasons:
1 - I am bloody busy!
2 - I constantly find that I'm saying the same things on the same subjects over and over again, because nothing changes. One simple example: I was driving around yesterday with one of our workers and he commented on a massive swimming pool, which was clearly being delivered to someone's house. We agreed that the cost would be somewhere around the $30,000 mark. Easy when your house value has increased by $300,000 in the past year and will do so again in the next year.
I compare that side of Auckland with the other, where a family struggles to scrape up $50.
Nothing changes, and I'm sick of repeating myself.
Posts may be rare, but I haven't given up.
18 Years Married on 6/6/16! Wouldn't swap a day of it.

A new definition for "irony": walking into a Kiwibank and hearing two staff members chatting away in Hindi.
