Saw that. And whoever wrote that the NZ Internet is slow as a turtle... is out of their mind and obviously never used mobile data in the USA or broadband in Australia.

 

Our Internet is so much better than these the service in these other places.

Let 'em roast NZ. There's no place I'd rather be; especially the way the world is presently.

Isn't jealousy an ugly thing?

 There are certainly things not to like, but none of those mentioned. I have to wonder if any of those 'wits' have ever been in NZ.

I enjoy a good roast, especially the Sunday type.

 

Seriously though, this is just stuff taken from an AskReddit thread: https://www.reddit.com/r/AskReddit/comments/66v4hr/how_bad_can_you_roast_new_zealand/

 

I'm pretty sure most of the comments are just jokes. I know for sure at least 3 are from kiwis.

Yeah i think this is a site promotion attempt if it is not original content, and what remains is lame.

In the last couple of months Failblog has started to post listicles that are literally taken from Reddit discussions, or even *sigh* Whisper posts... Getting to the point where I'm considering removing it from my RSS feeds.

Any one of those meme sharing site things are just making their sauce from Imgur and Reddit. 
Just copied user posts. And literally every single meme site shares the exact same content. Just google some of the headings and body of the articles.
