    Hmm... Apparently New Zealand men have the highest rate of cancer in the OECD with a 1 in 2 chance of getting cancer in their lifetime.

    Someone fix that fucken ozone hole.

    Headed into the frank church, our largest wilderness area, for 5 to 7 days. I'm to the point where they tell me this, and I just think okay. It'll be cold but I look forward to sleeping under the stars.

    Also, today my supervisor said if I was an animal, I'd be a musk ox, because they just quietly endure whatever circumstance they're in.

    My supervisor is probably the best boss I've ever had.

    Supposed to be back to pre-1980 levels by 2075, so hang tough. Unless Trump dismisses the ban on CFC's as fake science/news and reverses the ban on them.

    I might just make 2075 if I live to 113. Not much chance of not getting skin cancer though considering how much time I've spend in the sun; hopefully just non melanoma skin cancer.

    If anyone wants to know what Boulder, CO is like, imagine an entire city of people that would unironically buy this book:

    Fuck China, the best headphones I've ever owned were made in the Philippines.

    Never see anything "made in America".

    We don't import that shit, we put a ban on that shit.

    Today is the 125th anniversary of NZ women getting the vote. Yesterday my little sister and I went to the National Archives and had a look for my Great Great Grandmothers signature on the Petition. Archives have a museum like display with the 25,000 signature petition, the United Tribes 1835 Declaration of Independence and the 1840 Treaty of Waitangi.

    We also had a look at one of the family history books in the National Library that I hadn't seen.

    The petition is 270 metres long, weighs 5 Kgs and when it was presented in Parliament it was rolled out on the floor until it hit the wall with a thud...

    It was a very New Zealand sort of affair. I found an on-street park 3 minutes walk from the Archives, it was free and there was only one small group of schoolchildren getting a tour and we had two librarians helping us find the book...

    I've bought a lot of headphones and the best sound I ever heard is from my JBL Synchros 700s.

    Not sure where they're made, probably China, but it says on them "designed in California".

    You need to listen to this track with them in "Livestage mode" (they have built in DSPs) - it sounds simply amazing, like you're marching to war with the Orange men of Ulster!
