    Not needed, we have enough landlords to bash and this is not on the agenda!

    I like the idea of NOT killing ALL the trees, as the air they produce is needed for our type of life.
    It's the catalyst that enables us to have great thoughts and fast movements.

    I wouldn't call myself a Greenie though.

    Thank you for asking it.

    Personally, I see it as a matter of statistics.
    If I wear a mask half the time, I'm making life hard for the virus half the time.
    The more effort I put in, the more I stonewall it.

    Strangely, I don't even see that the virus has less right to survive than a human cell.
    It's very likely that a human cell is nothing more than an evolved virus /bacteria combination*
    So really, it's just a microscopic turf war between relatives.

    Unfortunately, in order to reproduce, this particular creature destroys human cells, and does it rather well.
    It's either us or them.
    I choose us.

    .see.

    Life lived in isolation and without risk is not worth living at all.
    A false premise. By isolating oneself forever, any good they may intentionally or unintentionally do in the world would not happen. If at any point in your life you will bring happiness or joy to someone otherwise unhappy or joyless, your absence does a degree or kind of harm.

    But on top of the false premise, this is a poor argument. McDuck never said he would do anything to avoid harm to others; he said he'd be happy to inconvenience himself a little in order to do so. As we all should be happy to, COVID or otherwise.

    I went for a walk yesterday in a large public space.
    I wore a mask the whole time.

    I didn't wear it out of fear.
    I've got a constitution like a horse.
    I wore it in case I had contracted the virus and might accidentally cough or sneeze at some poor child or older person that passed me by.

    It seemed a relatively small inconvenience, in order to save someone else a world of suffering.

    Self centered people seem blind to anything but self centered behavior.
    It's the most humorous form of cognitive bias,
    very destructive.

    That's no comfort. How many were stupid or foolish enough to heed the dubious prognostications of the after-the-fact soothsayers, anyway?

    Covid be damned – the market is booming


    So goes the headline from this article

    https://www.landlords.co.nz/article/...ket-is-booming


    National median house increase by 16.4% year-on-year for July.

    Half of the regional markets saw double-digit year-on-year increases and hit record median prices.

    Auckland’s median house price increased by 16.0% to a new record high of $950,000 from $819,000 at the same time last year.

    The number of properties sold nationwide in August increased by 24.8% from the same time last year.

    Economists retract their estimates of sharp declines in property values.


    Reasons cited, record low interest rates, the removal of LVRs and the lack of listings. One might also add that money is chasing worthwhile gain - something that is not possible by bank deposits. Moreover, I also imagine some of the $3 billion that will hit the market after the wind up of Bonus Bonds will find its way into property.

    I don't feel that way
    I simply do what is practical and sensible.
    Wearing a mask is a mildly inconvenient way to slow the spread of a particular disease.
    As with most things, timing is everything.

    I don't agree with your idea that that Flu and Covid are approximately the same thing.
    In Mathematical terms , that;

    Flu = Covid.

    I think that Covid is about 10 to 20 time more deadly than Flu.
    (Depending on the culture of the country)

    Mathemetically;

    Covid = Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu + Flu.

    This level of communism is insane, and all you sheeple out there need to wake up!
    Totally agree the whole thing is a nonsense. The UN have an official song that has kids praising and welcoming the New World Order, actual lyrics :
