Friday Night Free For All

Now open. Here are the rules, to broken or followed as you see fit. Note suggested topic of conversation :
contemplate the quirk of fate which gave New Zealand Michael Cullen and America Michael Jackson
And the last Free For All lasted well into the weekend and got a bit serious. Roger, behave yourself this time.

But really, you can talk about anything.

UPDATE: I've got it, you have to tell us something interesting about yourself.

Ok, in line with my update, something interesting about myself ... would be: I used to play AD&D for years, and even DM'ed a Dark Sun campaign. A while back now, kind of lost interest when I had kids.

In the same house once occupied by JFK when he was a Senator.

Blogger Roger said...

Ok, here I go. I just read on www.michaelmoore.com that ten Senators (all Republicans) did not vote for a bill apologising for lynching or some such thing. Showing their true colours, or an aberation? Originally there were twenty Republican hold-outs, but the number has reduced to ten.
And to think, that this is the party of Lincoln, etc etc.
Shameful.

Back on the D&D: Please tell me you guys don't dress up for it! I've only ever played once myself (didn't dress up) but got hold of a copy of baldur's gate 2 and spent far too much time with it. Though I get the impression that D&D computer games to the purist are a bit like baseball to a cricket lover.

6/17/2005 09:02:00 PM  
Blogger David Farrar said...

The rolepaying is not through a commercial game, but just a system created by the guy who DMs it. It is similiar to the old D&D.

But it is very much about having fun, playing your characters true to life - ie sometimes deliberately doing stupid things, with the focus on the character interaction, not on "winning".

And no, no costumes. Just lots of red wine.

Any opinions on ACT's TV3 poll rating? Personally I feel the average ACT/National voter will actually take the time to travel to a polling & vote. Whereas your average leftie is not as statistically inclined to get off their ar** and vote.

So the TV3 poll, however it was taken, may be inaccurate.

Am I alone in this opinion?

6/17/2005 09:07:00 PM  
Blogger Berend de Boer said...

coge, although I've some doubt that the support for ACT is that low, it is of real concern that ACT doesn't have a large core vote as the Greens have.

6/17/2005 09:10:00 PM  
Blogger Gooner said...

No coge, but it's getting to the stage where a lot will have to travel, scarily at that stage. A huge shame if we don't make it. A bloody tragedy actually. I am very optimistic by nature so will never give in until the polling booths close.

I am still very confident that Act will get back in. I have great faith in Rodney's ability, and the ability of the whole campaign team, especially Brian Nicolle. I think Act will get between 6 and 8 percent.

6/17/2005 09:13:00 PM  
Blogger Gooner said...

Brian is a star roger, no doubt. And the most selfless man I know. I too believe ACT has about 3-4% core support so don't understand the polls. I am confident too roger, but would like to be 6-8% right now so I can sleep better. As a list candidate I will be very nervous on the hustings and would like a 'buffer'.

6/17/2005 09:20:00 PM  
Blogger Roger said...

Be confident in your vision, Gooner, that the principles and values that the Act Party stands for are the principles of the right and the virtuous. Never waiver in your conviction that you are standing for a cause, that you want New Zealand to be the country that it can be, and work harder than you ever have before, because our children depend on the efforts of yourself and every person like you.

6/17/2005 09:25:00 PM

Balder's gate, I rememeber that. I think it might have been based on a book, or maybe on an actual campaign.. I never played the computer games, since my job is basically at the computer, I try to get away from it to relax.

I liked the social interaction that I got with AD&D. Though, I ended up getting really sick of pizza and coke and chips, because that was the standard fare of our games. I think we might have eventally progressed to beer as well, but it's really hard to remember. It was like another life. Never dressed up, though I would have liked to. I did paint a whole lot of those tiny metal figures.

Coge, I think they have got the flu. It started with sniffles and stomach upsets and throwing up right after the vaccinations (which they didn't get) ... they got better, but it kept going with coughing and now a couple of weeks later it's high temp, coughing, throwing up and my 4yo has just told me his ear hurts. It's just so bizzaire that they are both sick.

roger,

Have you had yourself tested for multiple personality disorder? First quoting from michaelmoore.com, then inspiring words to Act supporters, and then last week banging on about Saddam Hussein's rights under international law?

We right-leaning types generally don't like Michael Moore or international law. If you really are an ACT supporter, did you not get the memo?

Are you having us on?

6/17/2005 09:33:00 PM

I think ACT will get in too. Rodney just has to do more interviews. That's what swayed me, I heard him on the radio a year ago, just after he had become leader.

6/17/2005 09:34:00 PM

You assumption of my political persuasion was incorrect, Lucyna. I am a free thinker and do not stick to one rigid doctrine of thought. When I think the right is deserving of criticism, I criticise.

I know someone else who liked it, Murray. Maybe it's a woman thing?

Gooner, F5 is a button on your keyboard, on the top. It refreshes the view. If a refresh doesn't occur, hold down the ctrl key, and press F5. That forces a refresh whether it thinks you should do one or not.

Coge, my kids are both allergic to dairy, but they do get small amounts from time to time. Evil cocoa pops that got bought with their dad last week will have to go. I'll have to find out if there's the kindy is feeding my 4yo bread with milk products for morning tea.

You can learn about socialism by watching Yogi bear. "Don't feed the bears". They become fat & lazy, unable to provide food for themselves. As I suggested earlier, this will ultimately manifest itself in their voting propensity.

The problem if socialism is abruptly cut off, was demonstrated to me on a TV doco some time ago.
It showed what happened when some Alaskan bears had been allowed to forage at a rubbish tip unchecked for a length of time. When the tip was fenced off, the bears became quite ferocious at having their food supply cut off. Apparently they were completely unable to adapt back to their previous existance.

LOL, oh good, Gooner. I've just come across so many people that don't know the basics that I never assume anymore, just start from the begining. I used to train people on how to use software, and the first part was generally on computer basics. Don't like training.

Spotlight seems to have lots of crafty stuff, Murray.

Coge, the bear analogy is good. Except the bears in our case get to vote every 3 years. But they're not as bad as the people defending the bear's "rights" to food. Grrr.

Roger, from what I've been reading, and I don't actually *know* because I don't follow the republican party, is that the republicans aren't what they used to be. But, like with many organisations, they are made up of individuals, not clones, so maybe those republicans didn't vote for the apology bill because of "true colours" or maybe because they didn't want to open up the gov't to litigation. I don't know.

As for thinking you were a leftie, I originally didn't think you were, but the way you were acting screamed "leftie" to me.

But you are right - if you are going to critise in blogs you have to be able to take what is inevitably and rightly going to come your way. I suspect that is a concept that your average 'leftie' has some trouble with. Hence my comment about 'lefties' and free thinking being mutually exclusive

I was at work when I saw 2 cops with guns run past. Looked over the road at the ACC workshops and saw what I thought was a cow running around. Could see how it was going to escape the cops so thought I would give them a hand. ( This 2pm Tues arvo)
Met the 'cow' under this overpass thingy about 5 metres apart when he saw me and I saw she was a he. He had a big flap hanging off his side and didn't look very happy. There was a TV3 cameraman on the overpass above us. The bull stamped his foot once and charged me. I turned and ran for it to a pile of rubble about 50 metres away and the TV guy got it all.
On the news that night , police stop the next week and then a friend rang me from New Orleans and said I was on the TV over there.
My 15 seconds of fame.

Poor bull got shot by ADS but in 7 shots poor bastard.

Allah protect that poor bull

Turn your back for a moment and look what happens. Place goes mad. Prophet, I remember that. Bloody lucky they didn't miss the bull and get you. Were they using pea shooters?

Roger, I must be getting old!!! A 'dirty stop out' is or was a person who stays out playing up well into the small hours of the morning.

Adolf - They ended up trapping it in a driveway just over beside my business. It was Ash Edwards the ADS head honcho and he had for some reason a 30/30 ?? don't know why. The first shot his eye was a little close to the scope and he opened up his eyebrow. Put about 5 into the chest and body of the poor thing. Then one in the head that bounced off then finally the good head shot and put it out of its misery.
I asked for it for dog tucker but they weren't amused. I think he was a little embarrassed at looking like such a nob.
Well I'm doing 12 hr days at the mo so of to the cool face.
Rodger - 11pm maaaaaate.

Allah protect us.

OMG, Roger, that blog is so boring! You need to put some life in it.

Any suggestions, Lucyna?

It's like the frogblog, incredibly impersonal. I read different people's blogs because I like the people. I read your blog because I liked you. This blog is just bland. Can't tell who is writing because it all looks like one blogger. Therefore, my suggestion is to use different names, allow personalities and opinions to come through. Right now it's very dry.

Both throwing up water. I'm working very hard to keep them hydrated. My older one especially wasn't looking too good this afternoon, but 10ml every 5 minutes works .. phew. My younger one keeps asking for food.

Whoops, just threw up again. Luckily the amount being thrown up is less than the amount of water being taken in.

And their temperatures have gone down today.

Poor them, and you. Are you giving them that dehydration powder stuff? It worked with me.

No, not able to get to a chemist. If they are still this bad tomorrow, I'll ring around and ask someone to get some for me. I've never had them throwing up for this long.

Yeah, Prophet, they're not throwing up today - YAY! I've managed to get quite a bit of water into them this morning, and have now progressed to lemon juice and honey in warm water. Hopefully they'll keep that down too.

And Gooner, it is a pity Auckland's so far away, it would have been nice to meet you.
