    KIWIS In Space

    I understand that NZ will be launching a rocket tonight and wish all the best for success. I hear the rocket was built here in the US, but the entire project is NV.

    Let me know how it goes.

    That company has launched quite a few from Mahia Peninsular, near Gisborne.
    A company launch pad for development purposes.
    A credit to the local fledgling space industry and the local Iwi (Māori sub tribe).

    You forgot ‘political studies’
    Just what the hell is that, anyway ?
    He nui to ngaromanga, he iti to putanga.

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    its the art of saying what you need to say to get what you want and once you have it not delivering on what you said you would do to get what you want and still keeping your job

    Looks like it all went to plan. Pretty cool to think little old nz can put rockets up into lower space. Does that make us more of a war threat than north korea now, haha.

    Now there's a thought. Pineapple lump cluster bombs, Pavlova grenades, buzzy bee drones. Ha ha ha what a hoot that would be.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    There's only a handful of people in North Korea that deserve to be treated like that. Inflicting Sage on the general population would probably be against the terms of the Geneva Convention.

    North Korea remains one of the few countries not to have signed or acceded to the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC).

    All good by the looks of it.
    There are only three types of people in this world. Those that can count, and those that can't!
