The only rule is that everything has to be factually correct.

I'll start.


New Zealand is currently 12 hours ahead of GMT. This makes it terrible to talk to family and watch live football games.

Football is not the number one sport

It rains more than England.

Well as the driest bit of NZ is reportedly somewhere near Nelson and in Stoke today they were a little inunated by rain then it follows logically that NZ is wetter than the UK..........mmmm........or does it.

It certainly is warmer at night here, 18C at 0600h this am, not bad for late May (AKA November).........
Oh yeah there is too much daylight for us insomniacs - I need more seratonin......cant understand why I cant go to work in the dark and come home in the dark too!!!!!

All this warm and dry weather is not actually a good thing for late May in New Zealand. The farmers are going to suffer, the price of lamb going down as people move stock quickly as they cannot afford to feed them. So over all, not actually very good for NZ economy as a whole. never mind though you still have good views to look at!
