patatrat: Only in NZ do we drive at 80 in a single lane for kms, then speed up to 120 just to pass that damn car in front. Only to drop down to 80 once its a single lane again.


Bugger - I was looking forward to doing just that in a campervan when I hit 80! Innocent  Seems everyone else is already doing it - Karma/revenge will be sweet Laughing

Only in NZ do you get a community based sentence for murder, not to mention the discount (time-off) for multiple - murders  Sealed

On a brighter side....Only in NZ can one own their own slice of paradise - complete with scenery that could be from anywhere else in the world Smile

Only in New Zealand do we publicly express our utter distaste of American style reality, game & talk shows, then act all surprised when we try to ape them, and fail. Badly. Whilst Australia tries, and succeeds.

Only in New Zealand could 3 pies and a penthouse have been items of national security.


Only in Dunedin could the presence of riot police (or the arrival of students from another city) be considered as an invitation to riot.

Only in New Zealand (or more specifically Wanganui Whanganui ??!?) can the letter "h" cause so much trouble and divide a community.
