Then why, oh why, every kiwi dreams of moving their shit across the ditch???
Happy Planet Index has ranked Australia as the 105th happiest country, out of 140, and New Zealand, wait for it, 67 places higher at 38th.
Why is it then everyone and their uncles in this country dream of moving to Australia one day?
[The pathetic, totally discredited World Happiness Report, most probably paid for out of the UN funds by a certain senior official, had previously ranked NZ in the top 10 happiest country, but just one place ahead of Australia.]
NZ scored poorly on the ecological footprint, ranking 119th, but ahead of Australia at 139th out of 140.
The swine-sewage-infested Luxembourg came last on the ecological footprint front, and was the 139th candidate overall, just one place ahead of the “worst” country, Chad.
“The Happy Planet Index measures what matters: sustainable wellbeing for all” according to its website.
“Wealthy Western countries, often seen as the standard of success, do not rank highly on the Happy Planet Index.”
“Instead, several countries in Latin America and the Asia Pacific region lead the way by achieving high life expectancy and wellbeing with much smaller Ecological Footprints.
“The Happy Planet Index provides a compass to guide nations, and shows that it is possible to live good lives without costing the Earth.”
Happy Planet Index: Top 20 Happiest Countries
1. Costa Rica
2. Mexico [Is Trump a factor?]
3. Colombia [YKM?]
4. Vanuatu [Only if you can,t live without earthquakes!]
5. Vietnam [REALLY?]
6. Panama [Will they pay you?]
7. Nicaragua [JIO]
8. Bangladesh [YFKM?]
9. Thailand [Are you a sex pervert?]
10. Ecuador [Doing more with less?]
11. Jamaica [What did you inhale for breakfast?]
12. Norway [Do not marry locally!]
13. Albania [Ouch!]
14. Uruguay [Rrrrrrrrrrrr…]
16. Indonesia [What about China?]
17. El Salvador [Any shred of evidence?]
18. The Netherlands [Promiscuity a factor?]
19. Argentina [And Chile?]
20. The Philippines [How many hurricanes does it take to change your mind?]

Man ‘mistakenly’ left in court cells for two nights
‘It was like torture!’
A man was left in the cells of Masterton District Court for two nights at the weekend without food.
“The only question was how long he would spend in a windowless cell with a toilet, a tap, a concrete slab for a bed, and a shoe for a pillow.”
He had no toilet paper, no mattress, and no natural light, reports said.
“One of the things he said was, it was like torture. [There was] no way of knowing how long he would be there or when he would get out,” his barrister Susie Barnes said.
It’s entirely possible that the victim, who has name suppression after pleading guilty to drink-driving, and was being held in the cell while his bail conditions were typed up, was conveniently forgotten and was being extrajudicially punished by police.

What should the Pussy-grabber in Chief do after he is impeached and forced to resign?
Move to New Zealand, of course! Drumpf would feel at home in NZ because:
- He’s a rapist, pedophile and sexual predator.
- He’s incestuous.
- He’s racist.
- He’s a conman and fraudster.
- He’s a pathological liar.
- He’s a slumlord.
- He’s a psychopath.
- He’s a violent narcissist.
- He’s a misogynist because of his family’s deep roots in sex trade (“prostitution and pimping” starting with his grandfather, and his own involvement in child-sex trafficking).
- “[Drumpf] appeals to an ancient fear of contagion, which analogizes out-groups to parasites and poisons.”
Sociopath vs. Psychopath: What’s the Difference?
A psychopath doesn’t have a conscience. If he lies to you so he can steal your money, he won’t feel any moral qualms, though he may pretend to. He may observe others and then act the way they do so he’s not “found out,” Tompkins says.
A sociopath typically has a conscience, but it’s weak. He may know that taking your money is wrong, and he might feel some guilt or remorse, but that won’t stop his behavior.
Both lack empathy, the ability to stand in someone else’s shoes and understand how they feel. But a psychopath has less regard for others, says Aaron Kipnis, PhD, author of The Midas Complex. Someone with this personality type sees others as objects he can use for his own benefit. [WebMD]

However, Otago University zoologist, Prof. Liz Slooten said the Rabbit Island stranding happened at the time one of the surveys was being conducted off Taranaki, about 60 nautical miles (111km) north of Nelson.
“The whale could have been very close to the air guns and may have suffered physical damage causing temporary or permanent hearing loss. This could have led to the stranding, but only a full autopsy can answer this question,” Slooten said.

Another Chinese woman killed in Christchurch crash
The 26-year-old Chinese tourist who was killed in a two-vehicle crash on State Highway 75, on the Christchurch/Akaroa Highway on 4th of January 2017, has been identified by police.
She was Jin Zhang of China, the latest victim of New Zealand tourism.
Was the dead Chinese woman sister of the earthquake victim Didi Zhang?
Didi Zhang, 23, had planned to bring her three Chinese siblings to New Zealand after she completed her English course and was registered as a nurse.
She was studying at the King’s Education language school on the third floor of the CTV building.
Didi came from the historic city of Luoyang in Henan, China. Her family described her as a loving daughter and a stubborn person.
Didi Zhang, 23, had planned to bring her three Chinese siblings to New Zealand.
She attended Tianjin Medical School and was considered an excellent student. She came to Christchurch in October 2010. [She was killed on February 22, 2011.]
Will the Chinese officials who profit handsomely from kickbacks in trade deals with New Zealand allow their media to publicize the road fatalities involving Chinese nationals in this country?
Most probably not, judging by past experience.
