NZ - a technology backwater

Post by Burke's Boot »

I don't suppose we will be seeing Bled II in lovely 4K this weekend as our sanzaar partners all seem to be technology backwaters only shooting in eye hurting 1080i at best.

And here's New Zealand laughing at Australia for not having proper internet. Hopefully we can get around to sending one of our locally made satellites into orbit on one of our own rockets one day.

This is the shittest spite thread ever.

Personally, I think Australia will get their arse handed to them much to the joy of the barely literate AB supporter base on social media. Can't wait to be put back into my box.

If the Wallabies work hard and play by the rules they'll get ahead. If they have a go they'll get a go and if they get a go the ABs can kiss goodbye the Bledisloe - ScoMo, barely literate Australian P.M

Haven't you got something better to do than spite kiwis? Like choosing a new PM, or having a date with a sheep or a kangaroo?

He’s gotta do something while he waits for his government to build a broadband network that... we’ll, works, let alone support 4K.

From the sounds of it he's on the side of the street that has the NBN installed - his poor neighbours directly across the street are probably having to make do with wireless and will watch in 480p.

He's long gone so I would've thought that would be too. Don't actually know though. Just know that I never see or hear that nauseating little twat on the TV or radio anymore.

If you are missing your Veitchy on sport fix, can't imagine why but each to their own, take a look at Martin Devlin's page. Veitch apologist in no small order.

I have real NBN with fibre to the home and you should excuse yourself from the Australian policitical thread with language like that.

Wouldn't dating your lovers still be 'spiting kiwis'?

Our national song isn't about a man having a date with a sheep. So I'm not sure why you would think they're our lovers.

'Lovers' is flowery language at best. You fudge sheep because your country is boring and women are ugly.

Our national song is about stealing a sheep. Because we're filthy convicts, that are never far from criminal behaviour.

Sure it is. And there is nothing remotely dodgy about tying those kangaroos down either....

And thank you for an insight into how your mind works. You've basically said that if you were bored enough you would find sheep shagging an acceptable option!

You sick perverts!!

Well of course. Boredom sucks. You wouldn't like us when we're bored.
