    Got a few.

    Richard Hammond in advertisements for Telecom

    Have always been a fan of his from Top Gear but I'm sick of hearing about how Andorra is lovely this time of the year and how you dropped a ******* shipping container off the coast of Auckland to see if a phone network works there. FFS, so annoying. But it gets worse.

    Having friends that will believe anything

    Watching the above ad (the container one) one of my friends made the following comment. "When did they do that? It should have been big news." I tried not to be mean and explain it as best I could, "Na, it's fake, they wouldn't have been allowed to do that plus how would the woman in the container get out of it while it's on the water, the door can only be opened from the outside and if she opened the door (somehow) it would have sunk before she got anywhere near the top." This was his response, "But they just showed her sitting on top of a container in the middle of the ocean....." I just gave up there, was no point trying any more.

    But that isn't all from that guy.

    Having dumb ****s for mates

    A while after the above the same guy then says, "You're coming to my house on Sat." I ask why and he basically blows up into a massive rant about how it's the All-Blacks first game of the Iveco (sp?) series or something and that (I couldn't believe this) it was my duty as a NZer to watch the game. Came close to punching him right there.

    Good call. And don't they go to Hong Kong, then say "how about somewhere more sophisticated?"

    Uh...what?

    If there's a bid in the last 3 minutes for a player, the deadline is extended. Not sure how you could not have known that.

    Clients who use floppy disks

    Deadset drive me crazy. If you're intellegent enough to use a bookkeeping program, how can you not get how a jump drive (USB stick) works ffs. I don't particularly enjoy having to try and restore your MYOB file from 7 floppy disks, only to have it fail each time when I put in the 6th disk. Get with the times, ****s

    I don't bid for a lot of players and don't spend a significant portion of my life on battrick. I'm still in the same division I started in 3-4 years ago and don't really intend spending time reading all the ins and outs to be honest. Basically sums up how I don't know a lot of things about it. I occasionally change my nets, orders, and watch bits of games if I'm at work. That's it. Will bid on a player, but usually forget about him. Especially if it finishes up at midnight - 6am.

    Loaded questions in referenda

    This one is ridiculous - "Should a smack as part of good parental correction be a criminal offence?" Maybe they should ask "do you hate polar bear cubs?" ****ing ridiculous. That question bears little relevance to the legislation, the purpose of which was to remove a loophole that allowed a few people to get off more lightly than they should have after their kids ended up in hospital or worse.

    Why even bother with this referendum, if you're using that question?

    Yeah, and just saw it on the news. It was on the same channel as tomorrow's Breakfast, in which they will discuss how the 3 strikes system in the USA is "working well". **** off.
