      Both a funny cartoon and a stinging rebuke of a scientific theory that’s full of inconsistencies and proof.

        Funny.

        In terms of practical application, an understanding of evolution has been instrumental to developments in numerous scientific and industrial fields, including agriculture, human and veterinary medicine, and the life sciences in general. Discoveries in evolutionary biology have made a significant impact not just in the traditional branches of biology but also in other academic disciplines, including biological anthropology, and evolutionary psychology. Evolutionary computation, a sub-field of artificial intelligence, involves the application of Darwinian principles to problems in computer science.

              There’s a way of testing that Charles. And if you’re a sporting sort of Mallard (as your cousin Trevor claims to be). well you get the point.

              Pete would have to cull it immediately if I posted what Charlie just said.

      That lady would have a good Kettlebell routine. You don’t get functional strength like that by being a Cinderella like Jacinda.

  4. There are often ‘rumors’ that the illegal drug trade is being run by those in ‘authority’;
    mafia & the vatican ?
    Dunne & synthetics (his son employed) ?

    Latest news on Al Jazeera.. Philippines President Duterte, has been waging a WAR on Drugs campaign (1000s killed in the last year) since he took power; His Son & Son-in-law have recently been connected to a black-market gang, who are being investigated for a $125mil Meth importation

    It leads me to wonder, who else in NZ could be involved.. Which party is staunchly opposed to law reform/continue the status quo ? :/

      Don’t worry your pretty little head about that, Zedd%. You don’t want to run foul of The Lodge.

      You may remember a couple of weeks ago I told you the Lodge will deal to the Maori Party.

      Hey Presto. It would have been worse, but a contractor stuffed up. He is presently being fitted for a mobility scooter..

      Talking of this type of rort. I remember a Labour MP( retired) giving out $20 notes to pensioners to help with their power bill and maybe vote for the ‘ right’ party.
