    Terror attack in NZ

    Well compared to the history of humans it's a blink really. A lot of things have changed comparatively quickly.

    Yeah, those two both, and Terry Gilliam (in film obviously) is another one that comes to mind. For me they are usually either really on or really off. But I like that they try different things and push boundaries even if it doesn't always fork for me. I'd rather than than more bands/artists that just sound the same.

    I'd say she could be an acquired taste. You're probably better starting at a different song/album. I'm afraid of amaericans by David Bowie

    Can't we all just say he indescriminately fired into a group he discriminately discriminated against and get on with it?

    how crap is this government ?

    I'm sorry, I really think you are misunderstanding me. I'll try to get this as right as I can but try and see this through fresh understanding and not through the lens of what you think om trying to say (easier said than done, I know). I was saying that they *did* act like security but that the boy wasn't to know how they were to react, they weren't exactly uniformed people who you could guarantee would behave in a way that was safe for him. You could hear the journalists tell the guy who had him in a headlock to take his hand off his neck. That guy at least felt that they may be going at him a bit hard but like I said, they are unlikely to be actual trained security people so probably restraining best as they could. In that respect it was a dangerous move for eggboy to make. But at the same time putting your arm around someone's neck can be too. Again, I don't know if that guy was trained to do that safely or not but I'm pretty sure he would be pretty fired up when he did it. I can understand that too though. Hitting someone from behind, also dangerous for him because, as you said, anning would not know at first that it was just an egg and he put himself in arms reach. The guy holding Anning back appears to be part of the journalistic crew, I didn't look like it was one of his supporters so I can't really credit them with that restraint. As far as supporting egg boy? I can say it was a poor move on his part, sure. Disrespectful? Sure. But have if you have ever seen a kid do something that is wrong and you have to tell them off for it but inside you are trying like hell not to laugh then you know how I feel about it. I am not *as* condemning of it as you are of his actions but I think we both just have to live with that. I hope that clears up a few things. If not I'll leave it there anyway... unless you particularly want something clarified. Also, I truly am sorry if I've made this whole thing uncomfortable for you. I know you're big enough to handle yourself. I just want to you know I'm not trying to be disagreeable or piss you off.

    What Did You Watch Lately ?

    Wow. I'll never understand that but it sure looks good from a film perspective

    Sorry, I'm not sure what you are reading into my comment there but I'm pretty sure you have got me wrong on this. Maybe I've written it thinking it one way and you're taking it another?

    Haha, sorry I didn't mean "guy like that" to refer to anning but to mean walk up behind someone to egg them. "someone in that manner" would be a clearer substitute of words I think. I'm not approving or disapproving but just saying I don't see it as a violent act and that saying it might have been something else in hand is pointless because it was what it was and nothing else. And sure they acted like security but given that these are people who would just about sympathise with the terrorist in NZ, well let's say I don't want to be "30" to 1 against them. He might be lucky there was a police presence.

    What's on your mind?

    I think J is talking about other people about to be out of work... Tell me about it. Did a macbook keyboard the other day. 67 screws I think I counted just to take the keyboard out and I had to pull everything apart from a speaker out to get to it. I didn't count the rest of them. But if you don't do laptops these days you don't have a lot of customers.

    I hear good things but haven't watched it yet. Most of the good things have been from people who love Ricky Gervais.

    No doubt he put himself in possible harms way by coming up behind a guy like that. But as far as "if the kid had chosen a bottle", well he didn't. *Maybe* he randomly picked up an egg instead of a bottle but maybe he had the sense to pick some thing that is more prank than damaging. It wan't the best idea as far as his own safety goes. I'll absolutely agree with you on that. Doing that in a room filled with the people like the ones that jumped on him was definitely risky.

    Tim Dean used to write and then edit Atomic MPC mag. So it was an appropriate person to quote on this forum If it was a bottle it would have been *completely* different in my point of view. If it had been a bottle he should have (and probably would have been) arrested. That would have been an actual violent attack. I'm not even sure how you could really equate the two except by the angle at which it happened but then you could start coming up with all sorts of spurious what ifs. I don't think it's the method of entry into parliament that people want him gone. If he'd been some middle of the road polly, few people would know or care who he was.

    1. If you say the real reason for the violent act is that these people are there in the first place then you could sound like you are condoning it the violence. Like it's some natural progression. 2. I originally got into the egg discussion because I am questioning if you can really call that violence because you described it as such. It doesn't seem like eggboy (who will now be known as that for life) was trying to injure Anning. 3. I was originally just responding to your post on people wanting to ban other people from speaking. Which didn't seem to be about egging... Maybe the message was scrambled? . . . Not backing down from that pun.
