Kylie Jenner 'freaking out' over Forbes' accusations she's not a billionaire

Why would anyone care what Kylie Jenner thinks about anything whatsoever?

NZ last in vaccine queue [stuff.co.nz]

 

There's no vaccine yet, and certainly no queuing for something that doesn't exist; and yet apparently we *WILL* be last, no questions asked.

 

Surely we can do without rampant scaremongering?

 

 

 

 

 

 

I expect Winston *WILL* be first in the queue to do something about rampant scaremongering. (Provided that there are votes to be had)

I don't even know who Kylie Jenner is! I recognise the name, but that's it.

That just means you haven't been infected by the Dumbdown celebrity bug yet.

Where do I go to complain that people don't think I'm a billionaire either?

Lucky it was marked as a “quick read”. Glad to know I can rely on that advice going forward

Australians once again are competing with Florida men for weird news.

Buzzfeed News: They agreed to a stranger's sexual fantasy involving a broom. But they had the wrong house.

A court decision this month in Australia contained some helpful advice: Always double-check you have the right address if you're going to a stranger's place for role play.

When the Australian man awoke to use the bathroom in his rural New South Wales home shortly after 6 a.m. on a Sunday last July, he noticed a light on his lounge room.

Assuming it was a friend who comes over to use his kitchen to make coffee, he yelled out for them to leave.

“Bugger off, it’s too early," the man said.

But in the darkness, he heard a stranger's voice reply.

“Is your name Kevin?” the stranger asked.

In shock, the man ripped off his sleep apnea mask and turned on his bedside lamp. Next to his bed, he saw two men holding machetes.

"What’s your name?” one of the men asked. He told the men his name.

"Are you sure you are not Kevin? As we were told to come to...pick up Kevin," one of the strangers responded.

The man told them no one named Kevin lived at the address or had ever lived there. Seemingly satisfied, the men started leaving.

"Sorry, mate," said one of them, shaking the shocked man's hand.

"Bye," said the other.

This bizarre interaction at a home in Goolgowi, almost seven hours west of Sydney, was not a crime, an Australian judge ruled this month, but rather the result of a bumbling attempt at carrying out another man's sexual fantasy, which went horribly wrong.

Motel business owner's incredible $10 bathroom cleaning hack

 

Wow, a hack? I love a hack!

 

A motel business owner has raved about a $10 grout cleaner that has left her completely "amazed".

 

Oh... so, when the Herald says hack, they actually mean using the product entirely as intended? Quite the opposite of a hack.

It is an advert disguised as news.

 

Pretty disgraceful Herald.

Actually no, this is a syndicated article nzh picked up from news.com.au, and it's in the lifestyle section. I find these easy to avoid and choose to spend my time in other sections of the paper.

Actually yes. Just because it is syndicated doesn't mean it isn't an advert.

 

The product mentioned is on sale at Bunnings NZ.

 

The author (Shireen Khalil), has a history of promoting products.

 

It is an advert.

Chief executive Nick Grayston says the job losses come as the business plans to move to an agile operating model from April 31.
Is April 31st actually May 1st, or is this April 2031?
