They never say "this video is currently unavailable"?!

I'll add a couple:

1) I wish it was a bit windier and colder here.

2) I am so glad we don't have a proper international airport and need to spend time and money going to Auckland before we can get off this rock.

3) Wow. Building million dollar homes on 45 degree slopes in an area prone to earthquakes was a work of genius!

4) I am so glad that they have never bothered bringing our public transport system into the 21st century! Who needs a commuter service that is regular and reliable? Pah!

Black is such a boring color, I think I'll wear something bright today.

lxsw20: Down with bucket fountains


1) We really have too many sculptures based on wind

2) I think it's great the the Cake Tin management have made it so expensive that we never get touring bands there now!

Of course you can make perfectly good coffee without using an espresso machine.

I have to admit, I come from Wellington. I can identify with the original video. It provided me with some LoLs. Now that I've moved down to Christchurch I just feel sorry for them.

"Of course a building with a bloody great hole in it is great!" (referencing the BNZ building.)

"The trains are so accessible for wheelchairs!" ... and no they're ******* not. They use a stupid short steep metal ramp up into the cab. I nearly deep-sixed my Dad trying to roll my wife off the train at Paraparaumu. Getting her on was bad enough... getting her off was worse.

"That southerly off the Strait is so refreshing."

"The New World near the Basin Reserve provides so much choice!"

Although, I must say when we were last up there, I got some pasta dropped off to my motel room that has to be equally the best of pasta I've ever had. So yes, Wellington does have its good points.

Bummer about the quakes. Us here in Christchurch feel for you guys in Welly and Blenheim.

Things MOST Wellingtonians would never say?

The Auckland Blue's are the best rugby team in the country and deserve to be Super rugby champions in 2014.

Auckland really is Much better than Wellington and better looking too,!!

Not quite correct. Thank a group of lawyers in Thorndon for that one. Most stadia size bands don't want to spend the money it takes to get to Wellington. An international airport (it's a good thing we don't have one of those!!) is probably the biggest stumbling block.
