    Uriah Heap got a reaction from tasman man in Olympics   
    The thing is with the Olympics is, you end up watching any old thing and you come up with some memorable gems.
    So yesterday I caught the 45 year old woman gymnast from Uzbekistan (sp?) other 8th and final Olympics. 45 years old??? and sailing off that one (vault?) where you sprint up to it and then flip off multiple times, like a young whipper snapper.
    Then I caught the Netherlands cyclist celebrating winning the Road cycle race....except the real winner (an Austrian) had finished 2 minutes earlier. Jubilation quickly turned to tears.
    Then I had the misfortune to watch our NZ goalkeeper look like he wouldn't get a game for a social team, down at the local park. Not one f..k up , but three howlers.
    Finally I saw that young swimming chick turn up and swim a new PB and NZ record. The look on her face when she realised what she'd done was priceless.
    It's all great. And this morning a bronze in Triathlon - except I missed that - got to work some of the time.!!!

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from Memphis3 in NZ's Women soccer Olympians to take a knee in support of racial equality.   
    I'll be watching the Olympics, now they're off and running.
    I'm personally no great fan of "the knee", but it's the "in thing" and we'll be seeing it for a while yet. No need to ditch the whole thing because of it. Just tune in shortly after the start and you'll never know it happened.

    I think the Shakespeare quote that best applies to 100 1 is, "...the fool doth think he is wise..."

    Thank you so much for addressing a servile plebeian such as myself, Nerula. I would abase myself at your feet, but I fear they are stuck in the mud.

    Questioning the independence of the media is a QAnon tactic.
    In fact, much of Nerula's rant is designed to scare weak minded people.

    Yeah; I see Ex President Trump; the GOP and their media lackies have got a real hatchet job going on Dr Fauci.
    They're using the same blueprint they've used to discredit other US public servants.
    These Dr's, heads of FBI, Ambassadors, etc etc just get on with their job; try to serve their country as best they can; try to correct exaggerations and straight out lies, while showing great restraint in how they comment.
    The problem is, this restraint makes them soft targets and they get cut down for political gain.
    It's a disgrace really, and lets hope we never see the like in NZ.

    Not only the female population Hesi. A snap poll of one young, first time voter in our house showed a sharp move away from Greens when their leader noted she'd defrauded WINZ; followed by a warm embracing of the new young attractive Labour leader. Ahhh the young -  On such minor matters as a small fraud and a good looking chick is our nations future decided.

    What about this latest guy impersonating his girlfriend and sending out sex images of her.
    Is the National Party choice full of deviants or what?

    Gruff unmasked!
    On NZ Today, TV program last night, Guy Williams interviewed a conspiracy theorist called Lorainne, from Nelson. She sounded a lot like you. Nice enough, but a bit of a nut-job.

    This thread was not initially about "dangerous Ardern", you have merely turned it toward that.
    The first post mentioned how Ardern would resonate with Gen X voters, and that is exactly what occurred.
    I would assume you are not Gen X, given your propensity for posting the rants of far right commentators.

    Blossom Lady - Came off 90 meters behind to win the Manawatu Trotting Cup.
    That story about Jumps Jockeys doesn't surprise me. if you've got around safely - you deserve to celebrate.
    The Hill going would be very sad, but hard decisions are required at this time.

    As his colleagues said to Speaker of the House Mallard. "If you just remain silent Trevor, you'll give them no oxygen."
    Unlike Trevor Mallard, I have self-discipline, and will thus be making no further comment on this thread. 😷
    Crackpot Gruff and Crackpot 100 1, now have the floor entirely to themselves.

    One of the great things about living in a free, democratic country such as ours, is that people such as 100 1 and Gruff can keep churning out their subjective, unadulterated drivel day, after day, after day, after.........................😔
