I struggle a bit with XR from a scientific point of view.
I think it's lint.

You live in NZ Pert, noone in NZ can afford to do that with the current housing market. Well I'm sure John Key and Brian Tamaki might, but that's a little different.

I said " John key AND Brian Tamaki" instead of " John Key OR Brian Tamaki", the latter would be better suited, as using "and" suggests as if they were hanging out together. But I like this image of John and Brian hanging out drinking bloody Mary's through $50 notes, this hypothetical situation I conjured up in my weird little brain makes me smile. I wonder what they would talk about. I imagine they would have servants as furniture, like that scene from Borat.

It would be awfully unhygienic though wouldn't it, money is quite dirty.

Lol, your definition of a conservative is someone with a job who can afford a drink at a pub?.

I suppose your definition of a punk is someone who is on the dole and lives in their mums basement?

Insightful.

Fuckin oath.
The best punk ever written came under Margaret Thatchers reign. Imagine if destiny church got in, the quality of nz punk would sky rocket.

Speaking of politics. Christmas with my brother in law was good. Christian farmers who religiously vote national. Classic.
I've given up on arguing and I just steer the conversation back to tools and slam as many beers humanly possible.

One of the tragedies of 2019: Christchurch rock band Brian Tamaki and the Kool Aid Kids shortened their name to just Kool Aid. I'll stick to living in the past when it comes to appreciating them.
