Apple have been doing shit like this for years.

During the 1995 worldcup my primary school had to ban those sticker books, lol. We had a crude wooden replica webb ellis trophy that one of the boys in our year made that we would play for on the back field at lunchtime, was a bit of a laugh. Tried to replicate the final but it just turned into a shitstorm
I think it's lint.

nobody said it was new, they bought the all blacks in 1996 or something.

apple are also an evil empire, its a real shame NZ schools didnt have the fortitude to support locally made computers when they were viable, we could have had an computer industry like finland had/has phones, but lets not start up on that...

i pretty much stopped caring about rugby when they started wearing adidas gear, is aussie still wearing canterbury?

like scott mentioned, they've been buying their way into school sports teams for a long time too. Too much for me was not being able to watch crew mates race in finals at karipiro from the finish line because AON set up a fuckin huge marquee there for a corporate lunch for their clients, at a secondary school sports event. What fuckin bullshit. We managed to get in in the end, and ate their food. Cunts.

I fuckin hate the way apple push the laptops in schools thing. It's fucked and completely misses the point of having computers in primary schools.

I don't hate rugby, but fuck I hate this bullshit. Professional rugby in NZ is just about fucked anyway. Cunts in the NZRFU are packing themselves about what could happen if the ab's don't win, pretty funny really.
I think it's lint.

Pretty good initiative really, good way to trick kids into learning some shit, not least that rugby is superior to league and soccer.

Probably the most important part of any kids education.

the first 15 seasons would suffice.

here is the dialogue in english, for the barbarians that cant understand castellano

Troy: Now, turn to the next problem. If you have three Pepsis and drink one, how much more refreshed are you? You, the redhead in the Chicago school system?

Girl [her face appears picture-in-picture]: Pepsi?
Troy: Partial credit!

This is for primary schools right? There you go, teach the little barstards about some countries, and more importantly rugby.

They should replace English with pre-frontal lobotomies and Pantera appreciation.

why would that be necessary? this is not a formal environment, i certainly can use correct punctuation if i wish, but my typing skills are low so i dont bother unless i think its important, which in this case, its not.

i dont think there was a 'point proven' do you think me not capitalising letters by choice is analogous to your inability to identify spelling mistakes even when alerted to the presence of one?

Please rephrase so that this makes sense.
