    Uriah Heap got a reaction from JJ Flash in Time for a bleat   
    I was painting on Saturday, so listened to the Mark Stafford show, on the new Brendan McCullum/Ian Smith radio station. They were hopeless tippers, but I enjoyed the banter and maybe you try listening to them with the sound down on your TV.

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from 6xes in THIS IS SERIOUS PEOPLE MAKE NO MISTAKE   
    Good on you for trying Nerula, but you'll never get through to them. This is the Gruff / 6xes thread. Gruff is an immovable Conspiracy Theorist, which is bad enough, but 6xes is worse. He is a "religious nutcase conspiracy theorist" and I doubt there can be a worse type.

    Paralymics on Duke - Channel 23. Some outstanding efforts, none more than the backstroker with no arms, who kicked his way to a silver medal. Got to admire that.

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from Gruff in All Whites team name to be cancelled   
    To be fair no independent person or body raised an objection to the name "All Whites"; it is NZ Football themselves who are considering changing the name.
    I agree, it's a dumb idea, but would assume "The Back Cocks" NZ badminton team will be the next to go.

    Gotta love the Olympics.
    So last night I'm watching this cycle race where they go round and round for 99 laps, with riders spread out all round the track. You can't tell what's going on and then they go "The Kiwi rider wins silver." 
    You beaudy!!

    Big Tom Walsh gave us heart palpitations last night. I don't know why he can't just jam his front foot up against the board like everyone else. That landing out to the side is going to cause more problems in the Final I reckon.

    The Mighty NZ Eights win rowing gold, just after Twiggy wins gold and the womens eights wins silver. A great day for NZ.
    Am I the only one enjoying the sport? The rest of u appear to only only want to pontificate about your own little hobby horses.
    Honestly Gruff, u seem completely obsessed by Covid-19. I'd suggest you see a Psychiatrist.

    Uriah Heap got a reaction from Pure Steel in NZ's Women soccer Olympians to take a knee in support of racial equality.   
    If you've got a Gold Medal in your back pack you get to party all you like. I used to love those trips home on the bus after a good "Away win." Great to see nothing's changed (except for whingers, who get far too much air time these days).

    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.!!!

    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.

    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.
