That the incivility of political discourse is so low that people approve of tactics more appropriate to propaganda during wartime, as the "new normal".

surfisup1000:

Kia New Zealand who offer a 5 year warranty but Kia Australia have a 7 year warranty on new cars. 


Why the difference? 2 years is a long time. 



I wonder if you could use that as evidence that Kia believe 7 years is a reasonable time under the CGA?

Having to wait until the bank is open on Monday to withdraw the cash for my X5. It's 2017, why can't banks be 24/7? I have a 4.4 litre V8 to drive!

My Kiwibank account is 24/7? Pay online and the ’cash’ clears in around an hour to any main bank these days?

It might disappear from your account 24/7, but it won't go to the other bank 24/7 - e.g. not between approx 11:30pm to approx 8am and not over the weekend.

Happens every time. That or the free shipping becomes the amount of the discount from normal.

 

I get sick of their BS sales and the constant emails about coupons expiring or something in my cart or wishlist has got cheaper, and when I look its like 12c less or something equally not worth me wasting time with.

People that download and register some communication app on their smartphone (Viber, LINE, Signal, WhatsApp, WeChat etc) and never use it because they "have enough apps" so they uninstall it but don't bother de-registering their number.





"War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself."
- John Stuart Mill

Communication apps that use a phone number and are too stupid to realize they are uninstalled and sort that out itself.

Followed a vehicle today that would have had 5 bulbs for their brake lights - three in the hi-stop, one each in the tail lights.

 

Only one - a very dim one - working, in the Hi-stop light.

 

This is a pre-2000 Toyota Surf, so 6-monthly WOF. Surely no way that the other 4 bulbs have gone since the last WOF check? Who is handing out these Warrants?
