^ and this: On Saturday night (local time), Kiss closed out the final performance of their The End of the Road farewell tour at New York City’s famed Madison Square Garden.

Local time here? That's what they usually mean, so it was Sunday local time.

Newstalk ZB story just now: "PM says the Labour government mis-managed the economy abysmally".

 

Sounds like a double negative. So they did OK?

I am so tired of hearing one side blame the other for things. Just fix it or shut up!

True but the point here is that Luxon didn’t actually say that double negative - ZB mangled its words and tripped itself up in trying to be very negative.

There was me thinking December was a month.

 





People often mistake me for an adult due to my age.

"Is it Monday or Tuesday?"

 

"It's December."

 

 

 

Or, in another version:

 

"Is it Monday or Tuesday?"

 

"Yes."

"Up to 200 properties estimated to be without wifi in mass Auckland internet outage"

 

-A Chorus spokesperson said planned work to move a fibre cable due to roadworks near Carrington Rd in Mt Albert resulted in a broadband outage for up to 200 homes and businesses.

I'm getting prepared for the "TikTok is down across Auckland due to a fibre break..." headline that I know is only a few years away...
