The frozen Chinese food at TJ's better not go away.
Sorry, the page you requested was not found.
u suffer from click original link fail
You of all people, should know how to copy/paste.
no more og basmati?
so wait, what is wrong with deciding to go with more local food products?
That's the right decision, but this isn't being done for that reason. The reason is dumb.
Agree w. Opie.
word to that.
For those who could not get to the linky...
My wife is on a "nothing from China, it's all crap" campaign at the moment. I kind of roll my eyes as practically all Japanese culture descends from China. She also refuses to buy the American steaks the supermarket sells because she doesn't want to "get mad cow disease"...Me asking "how could we tell if you did" got me a slap.
second, isn't Japanese beef generally superior to American?
I suppose but in the sense that a Porsche is superior to a Toyota. Plus there has been reports of mad cow in Japanese cattle too. No reasoning with her I tell ya. I generally only eat Australian beef anyway. Even my missus grudgingly admits it's pretty tasty and disease free.
It turned out that a bunch of that China/poison stuff was made up by the media anyway. The problem has been blown out of proportion (shocker) by the media.
Also VB, remember to point out to your wife that like 40 people have got CJD ever, and most of them worked in meat processing plants where they bathed in splattered cow's brain daily. You're considerably more likely to be hit by lightening.
NZ Beef FTW, BTW.
I could tell her that until I'm blue in the face, won't make any difference.
Not that the Americans have done themselves any favours over this though. When beef shipments resumed after the original ban, in the first shipment, the very first, the Japanese inspected it and they found brain stem material. Ban, ban, ban for another 12-18 months or whatever it was.
LadyOpie says, "I wouldn't doubt that... everything in NZ is great."
It really is good. I'm not just saying that.
Things NZ does well:
Beef, Lamb, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Milk and certain cheeses, Rugby, Schooling, social cohesion, 3rd party liability.
Things NZ does badly:
Home heating, nuclear power, stopping whaling protests, fiscal policy.
Don't forget Riesling.
Crawford wine makes my favorite, from Marboro area.
In my countrys defense against this pommie upstart!.......
Yes we suck at nukes.........Bloody awful at them! which is why we shouldn't be trusted with them
ps we also don't need them. irate2:
Meh if some aussies et al want to go go kill themselves down there. GO FOR IT!!!!
and if they by chance also happen to kill off a few whalers, no biggy.
Quite happy with Cullens fiscal policy (intrest rates hurt at the mo but it was nessesary to slow the housing market and it is working).
Cullens economic stabilizer policy is likewise working well, all those multi billion dollar surpluses that the government has had, are now getting used to keep the economy sweet now that we are looking like being on the receiving end of an overseas recession. and that will see us thru till the next upward part of the world economic cycle.
Yeah no comeback with the home heating though.
But that said, my place is pretty good..... average power bill for the house with 3 adults over winter was $110-$115 per month. And my house is pretty warm.
We could do with nuclear power, but the population has been brainwashed, and is generally convinced it is the root of all evil...
It's more than working! He's overcooked it IMO.
Nah, they're gonna give them away in tax cuts.
Mind you, I'll be voting for whoever promises me the biggest cut! irate2:
And maybe we can get rid of the retarded smacking legislation too!
I got me some heat pumps, working out pretty good. Now I just need double glazing to save me in a southerly.
Double glazing is a great idea, got it on my house, the heating/cooling issue aside, it's worth it for cutting out the noise.
BTW, I hope you two appreciate the self-restraint I'm showing not posting about the good and bad of en-zed.
And we will refrain from pointing out the honest home truths about Ostralya mate!
Been looking at doing double glazing at my place...... That glass looking over cook strait gets pretty cold in a winter southerly (plus the noise factor) but at the mo it's just too bloody expensive.
All right, all right, since we've been saying sorry this week I guess I better do a few "mea culpas" to the rest of the world as well on behalf of my country...
1) Fosters- this is a joke that went really wrong. We didn't actually think you'd drink it.
2) Air Supply- we had to get rid of them somehow but foisting them on the rest of the world was just plain mean
3) Every movie Paul Hogan made after Crocodile Dundee- we shouldn't have encouraged him.
4) Rupert Murdoch- the Australian robotics industry has a lot to answer for.
Is that the same as double bagging? Or is it like f*cking two donuts at once? You Kiwis are very odd.
One cow looks at another and says, "Hey, you heard about this new mad cow disease?" The other says, "How could I? I'm a tractor."
this thread has turned into a haven for quim diggers
I didn't know it was tuberous...I should carry a shovel more often.
This parrots fricking DEAD I tell you!
Thank you (and Wiktionary) for my new word of the day.
Interestingly, I didn't get it even though I have heard/used quinn, quinny, and quandana
i thought all males over 14 knew that word.
Thank you for at least the next 10 minutes of visualization.
