So you want to talk about natural selection…

Thousands of Kiwi kids poisoned by painkillers, household chemical…

[Thank god the Saudi air force pilots aren’t yet allowed to drop “toy” bombs on our playgrounds!]

Hundreds of kiwi kids are ending up in hospital poisoned every year, many after mistaking medicines for sweets, or experimenting with household chemicals.

“Safekids Aotearoa has crunched the numbers on poisoning hospitalisations for children, showing that over eight years nearly 2500 have ended up in hospital after unintentionally poisoning themselves,” according to a report.

Poisoning usually occurred at home, with children under five playing and experimenting with dangerous substances. Medicine accounted for about seven out of 10, with household chemicals, including toilet cleaner and dish-washing liquids, accounting for most of the rest, the report said.

There were 11 Inflatable Worlds in New Zealand and two others with the same jousting arena, a report said.

Accident Compensation Corporation (ACC) figures show there were 774 claims last year for accidents when “bouncy castle” or “inflatable” were listed in the accident description on the claim form.

The claims cost ACC $234,517.

‘Natural selection’ working at its best: Example 1

So you want to talk about natural selection…

A female “gossip columnist,” who works for a shabby news outlet, has mocked the death of the Cook Islands family, Cindy George and her three children in Ashburton as “natural selection”.

[Incidentally, the columnist in question was herself mocked by her friends while still at school because she never washed her hands after using the toilet, despite being a chronic nail-chewer.]

The Ashburton tragedy, whether it was foul play, or an accidental disaster, had nothing to do with natural selection, other than in the diary of a racist scumbag.

However, the mechanics of natural selection do have a strong presence in New Zealand, and play an important role in the evolutionary process…

Take the 2.98 million foreign visitors who arrived in New Zealand in the year ended May 2015 (www.med.govt.nz/).

The foreign visitors who visit New Zealand each year risk becoming victims of:

  • Inordinate number of homicides
  • Fatal incidents in NZ’s notorious tourist deathtraps
  • Deadly collisions on NZ’s deadly roads
  • Lethal food poisoning
  • Exposure to toxic chemicals
  • Potentially deadly UV radiation
  • Deadly viral infections
  • Extreme sports that become life-threatening due to inadequate safety measures and/or faulty equipment

[Borrowed from Apartheid Fort New Zealand]

Yet, they keep on arriving, year after year!

Now, that’s natural selection working at its best.
