neb: Weeelll... that makes sense, they're reporting the results of a survey of 2K people, so all of those items are just what was reported on the survey, including "other" for uncategorisable replies.

 

If you're generous and count "being too far from my family", once you remove "Nothing would turn me off from a property" and "other", since one is miscategorised as a turn off and one is unspecific, you're only left with 17 factors. The headline promised 18 specific factors.

 

I'm surprised pseudoephedrine contamination isn't on that list.

 

I'd happily buy a asbestos-filled deceased estate on the flight path. Must have fibre though.

This, from a report about a murder in Stuff:

“He felt sorry for Watene's father who would grow up not knowing his father.”

This article refers to Wednesday morning a couple of times... isn't this happening today? Is it still Wednesday in Hamiltron? 😂





I'm not a complete idiot, I still have some parts missing.

It saves rewriting when they repost it tomorrow as "Shoppers shocked by threat" and Saturday as "Bomb found in Hamilton mall?"

This article is solid enough, just one persons brief brush with the industry and some lessons they took from it, probably something that normally be published in a magazine sold at a supermarket checkout. Anyway, the author noted how she had a moral objection to taking advantage of people just for money. Good for her.

 

Then came the kicker - the author is a "Wellington author, actor and tarot reader."

I noticed the same earlier. Haha. Perhaps she shoulda read her own Tarot cards and avoided being sucked into a MLM group.

Believe it or not, this is listed under “Headlines” in Stuff:

“What are Pandora Vanderpump and husband Jason Sabo up to these days?”

I haven’t the faintest idea who they are, nor why I should give a tinker’s cuss what they are up to.

I have even less idea why they are worthy of a headline.
