Very good DB!

I was just looking at the trademe boards as off sick and looking for entertainment.
There is a thread about canesten pessaries that is highly original.
I'm not sure whether to recreate it here, but it is lunchtime

ahh, the trademe message boards - a whole different view of NZ society! Always good for a laugh but too scary to contribute cos they bite your head off worse than these boards

I look at them to remind me what life is like outside my loony liberal sandal wearing enclave. i get to know "what the people think" or rather what the lunatic fringe think.

It was my lifesaver buying my first home as I bravely posted in real estate and they steered me ( with just the odd scathing comment) through the whole process

Tell you what though, in the early days after the CHCH EQs it was a wonderful source of community information and news before the general media got there

Do animals commit suicide? If they do would the rate of animal suicide be quite high as is the rate for the population?

i think you will find that i used to spend many a happy hour at work making lemming fall of cliffs, and explode and generally abusing them. That might have been a game though...
