I'd settle for being just half as cool as that dude.
looks like a cool and vibrant city.
I used to skateboard up the terrace every morning to work.
the business guy on skates with a massive cellphone was just really going for it and made my night is all.
skateboard *up* the terrace? in my first year we used to skate down it at night.
was this intentionally this rubbish?
It implies that the high-powered suit is late for a business class flight and ultimately misses it. Would watch again.
and may well be winning
Wouldn't it be better off if it just handed itself over to Australia?
More clout on the world stage - I mean, come on - a population of four and a half million is pathetic. And it'd benefit from being part of a union that would provide unchallenged financial resilience. And the cultural ties! They're basically inseparable, if we're being honest.
Seriously though, none of the reasons you've stated really give a good reason for us to combine. Not to mention that the ideologies of our countries are quite different (some of the stuff Australia has done with the US just wouldn't slide over here, as has been seen by the Dotcom case).
Our population wouldn't magically change if we were to combine - there'd still be 4 million people in the state of NZ (I need a shower after saying "state of NZ"). Unchallenged financial resilience? You know Australia's economy is on the slide at the moment after the clusterfuck of their budget? We're inseparable in a similar way to how Canada and the US are inseparable. Or England and France (to a lesser degree, obviously).
It's never gonna happen.
you're making the right decision
Enjoy the rest of your weekend. (Kind of jelly that you get to find out what happens in the future before we get a chance to have a go.)
my simplifying of centuries of bad feelings over war probably doesn't sit too well. You too! Feel somewhat left out of the daily ____day threads because of it :)
