    I was recently reading a book on languages and the extent to which they are capable of communicating complexity. One paragraph mentioned that Eskimos have 50 words for different types of snow, Trobriand Islanders have 100 words for Yams and Maoris of New Zealand have 35 words for dung.

    Whilst the first two examples at least appear to serve a useful function within the culture using them, the last one has got me beaten. Any of you down there know?

    • WAKE UP says:

      And I read somewhere that the idea of using, in the Pacific Theatre of WW2, a group of American Indians who shared a little-known minority language that could perhaps be used for secret communications, failed because they had no word for “torepedo” :mrgreen:

        But for atheist groups to claim that the display of crosses violates the separation between church and state is wrong and deeply dishonest.
        Militant atheists are liars and scumbags.

    This morning’s NZ Herald “Aucklander” supplement has a two-page article on migrants wanting their own culturally correct rest homes for old folks. This, on top of the like of Paul Spoonley calling for the current occupants of rest homes (i.e OUR old folks) to attend “cultural evenings” to get them used to being looked after by migrant workers. Verily, we are f**cked.
    I repeat:
    1) the fundamental Rule of Immigration is: the destination country is SUPERIOR to the country of origin – otherwise, the migrant flow would be in the opposite direction.
    2) Supplementary Rule: if you change the destination country to eventually resemble the country of origin, you might as well have stayed where you were – and you’ve destroyed a superior culture in the process.

    Also in the Herald is a report that ME students find it easier to get visas to study in NZ. Watch the sudden flurry of mosque building

        Why read the NZ Herald when you can read Crusader Rabbit?

        I have realised that one of the truly great benefits of getting old is that one can build up an entire personal dossier of things one doesn’t give a fuck about. Happiness comes in many forms.

    G’day Mawm. “Study” covers a multitude of sins, does it not? Odd, isn’t it, how there’s never been a major investigation in any Western country into the purposes Saudi funding is being used for?

      Yup. Could be ‘plotting’ ‘planning’ ‘scheming’ or ‘casing’. Or even ‘invading’

    Seneca 111 at 12.05 am asks if anyone knows why the Maori of New Zealand have 35 words for dung. Being an expert tracker and hunter myself I think I can throw light on this.

    When the Maori migrated to NZ some time between 850 AD and 1300 AD (there’s endless debate as to the correct date) they would have had to forage for food until they grew their first crops of sweet potato. I suspect the 35 words describe varieties of bird droppings as the ability to differentiate between the protein rich chubby birds and the scrawny and tough saved them time on the hunt and helped them find the best food faster.

    Of course along the way they managed to decimate the country’s birdlife which is a tragedy for any latterday felines who enjoy a good stalk and attack. I only pay attention to dung which I know has come from something edible and worth the effort of the hunt.

    • Katie says:

      Or maybe they were distinctly remembering the difference between the tasty dung from the horrible dung.

    • Seneca III says:

      Thanks, Pompuss, not an unreasonable hypothesis although I am not so sure that bird droppings can be classified as dung. Rgds, SIII.

      I guess they couldn’t find the correct blade guard when they restored that puppy? ;-)

    • WebWrat says:

      Bloody interesting Darin.
      I ran a portable mill (amongst other things) on my own for most of last year. If I had been puttin’ it out half as fast as these guys, I’d have had it all done in a couple of months!!

      • KG says:

        One hopes you asked the local Iwi before milling ‘their’ timber, Wrattus?

      • Darin says:

        What type?Circular or Bandsaw?I’ve seen those niffty Peterson circular mills made in NZ.Nice machines for being able to mill nearly any sized log.
        I’ve built three bandsaw mills and ran several more,but only the big ones equal what a circular mill can do.
        I ran one of these for an hour or two,amazing machines-

        • WebWrat says:

          Was a Rimu portable saw Darin. Two blades but the motor was tuckered out and made it a bit of a grunt cutting 250 x 25 weather boards and 200 x 150 beams out of 6 metre logs.

          The boss came to see how I was getting on one day. Gave me a hand to carry a beam to the stack and said “Shit, they are fucking heavy aren’t they!” Then he buggered off, leaving me to carry on on my own again!! :roll:

          • Darin says:

            Hehehe…reminds me of the time we were sawing Sinker Cypress.Logs that got away from the big mill rafts a hundred years ago and sank to the river bottom.
            Cyress is normally pretty light.We were running off wide planks 20-24″ wide and 1-1/4″ thick 18 and 20′ ,but they were totally water logged.Two men couldn’t lift one plank so we were sliding them off on to the forklift forks as we went.
            Owner of the mill walks over and tried to lift one,after he picked his nuts up off the ground he said “good job guys” and walked back to his office :mrgreen:

    • Katie says:

      The employers are chaining the non-union workers to their seats, forcing them to work for no pay, having sex with the women, and dictating their hours and conditions?

      If not, then it is not slavery. Unions are slavery.

    Perhaps Kiwi judges are simply getting used to evil and brutality?

    • Cadwallader says:

      I think you may be right. When there is a newby judge he/she/it is obliged to attend a marae weekend to better understand maoris (nearly everyone) who come before the bench.

      • Moist von Lipwig says:

        Not only judges..

        Certificate in Computing. :wtf
        You’ll also need to attend a compulsory visit to a marae and embrace the use of karakia, waiata, pōwhiri, whakawhanaungatanga and basic te reo Māori within the learning environment during the programme.

        Certificate in Health Sciences
        a marae based camp within the North Island, held in February. It is compulsory every new student in the Bachelor of Health Sciences, Bachelor of Nursing, Bachelor of Pharmacy, Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery Part II and Certificate in Health Sciences to attend.

    Zain Ali, University of Auckland’s head of Islamic research, said many Saudi students chose to study in New Zealand because it was perceived to be “more Muslim-friendly”.

    “The environment in New Zealand is seen to be more accommodating to students from the Middle East, and there’s a lot of halal food and there isn’t an issue with finding halal homestays as there are many Muslim families here,” Mr Ali said.

    Saudi students are studying here because NZ is seen as more accomodationg to Muslims.Saudi student Abdul-Azeem Fakhr came to New Zealand to study because he could not get a visa for the United States.

    Mr Fakhr claimed the Americans would not grant him a visa because the supporting documents he submitted for his visa application showed he had been known by three different names.

    “I was given one name at birth, but my mother changed it when we had to run away from my abusive father,” he said.

    “But I did not like the name my mother gave me, so I chose the one which I am using now.”

    Mr Fakhr said New Zealand is becoming a popular study destination for students from Saudi Arabia and other Gulf nations because it was “more friendly than America or Australia” and “easier to get a visa”.

    In 2002, there were just 67 Saudi students studying in New Zealand. Now, there are about 7000, according to estimates made by the Minister of Tertiary Education, Steven Joyce.

    This is a very scary issue facing NZ :rant
