  • A Tale of Lagers and Weizen Part II

    When I was 18 I went on Contiki. Naturally one of the stops was Munich for the last day of Oktoberfest. And so begins one of the greatest nights of my life.

    We all travelled to the event on trains from our hotel and were already "half cut" by the time we arrived from drinking a few of the local beers in the hotel... it seems just about anywhere you go in Germany you can just order a beer and it will be good and when I say good amazing by NZ standards. Interestingly enough the Germans have been brewing their beers under the Purity law of 1516, which basically states they have no additives. TAKE THAT Steinlager.

    Anyway back to my story... We decided there was no time to "fornicate spiders" and headed straight to the Hoffbrau Beer tent. The place was absolutely crawling with Kiwis and Aussies drunken and singing from tables and it was only mid afternoon. The night began to get messy from there and many a round of Stein was ordered the waitresses boobs got bigger and bigger and I somehow managed to get pretty cozy with a little sexy blonde frouline and her friend. They dragged me outside and lit up a joint, which one of the German Police saw and immediately kicked them out but left me to go back inside as I was a tourist and did not partake in the smoking.

    So I proceeded to drown my sorrows in the ladies absence and have a few more steins and we were all smashing things by this stage including our steins and each other. The Contiki tour made its way back to the hotel (God only knows how) via the train. Our tour guide was so drunk himself he fell in the Gap between the train and the landing a bit of an emergency occurred trying to free him and he was lucky not to loose his leg.

    All of this of course I struggled to remember and only figured out what had happened the next day by looking through my photos on my camera and asking the more sober individuals on the tour. Here's my favourite photo which pretty much sums up the night.

  • National supports whaling

    Last post: Jamie on 14.03.11 at 01:45 | Started by Jamie on 09.03.10

    I reckon on the surface we should agree with National and say that we support the Whaling. But wait there's more...

    Since we are quite a small country, going to war with Japan would ruin any chance of a trade agreement and greenpeace's boats are a waste of time being that they just engage in lage scale water fights with the whalers and get themselves captured. NZ it's time we go covert.


    NZ's SAS is the perfect means for a black opp against the whaling boats. They have amphibious assault capabilities, explosive experitise and to top all this off the resently dubbed "James Bond" on New Zealand. Cpl. Willie Apiata.

    That's right... we need to do what the French did to Greenpeace right under our noses and sink a Japanese Whaling boat. But why stop at one? All going well the assault team could board Jap vessel, neutralise the crew and blow a bloody great hole in the side sending those wildlife murderers straight to Davie Jone's Locker.

    Is it not ironic that we ourselve's would become killers??? Not at all because we would catagorically deny all alegations. We could pass it off as an "unfortunate shipping incident" in rough antartic seas where the chances of hitting an iceberg are far higher than an encounter with
    00 - Apiata.

    I think that I could potentially carry two women onto the ship and a backpack. My choices of females would be Laura Bingle in the hope the women's day might pay another 250 Grand for any photos we can take with all the other funky animals on the ship. And perhaps another Aussie cricketer's wife so that he might fly home and NZ may actually have a chance of winning another cricket game.

    In the backpack would be the necessary cameraequipment and an "oompa Loompa" as a photographer's assistant cus you know you'd like to see an orange midgit try get into a backpack!
