I tell people I live in NZ so they can't possibly find me.

I'm more concered about [In reply to] Can't Post

how NZ is missing from the Earth in Star Trek: First Contact. What happens in the next few hundred years that wipes us off the map? Are we enveloped by a massive Klingon invisibility screen? Did a Lake Taupo eruption finally sink us? We need answers!

Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."

Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauronís master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

I thought the movies pretty much prove NZ is just an imaginary, fairy world [In reply to] Can't Post

Or just a CGI world. I mean, if you google images of the Argonath, for example, you don't find them, do you? Instead you just find some rocky river ravine that was CGI'd to look like that. Ergo, the whole "New Zealand" thing is a CGI hoax, probably based off Tasmania or Hawaii. And look, it's even in the name--someone ran to the end of the alphabet and thought they could get away with "Z-land" while no one was noticing, because who reads the whole alphabet anymore in these busy times? Sorry, but your cover story was blown a long time ago.

Happiness: money matters, but less than we think and not in the way that we think. Family is important and so are friends, while envy is toxic -- and so is excessive thinking. Beaches are optional. Trust is not. Neither is gratitude. - The Geography of Bliss by Eric Weiner as summarized by Lily Fairbairn. And a bit of the Hobbit reading thrown in never hurts. - NottaSackville

And Rose drew him in, and set him on the harpsichord bench, and put little Wilhelm Friedemann upon his lap.

He began composing a fugue. 'Well, I'm Bach,' he said.
