@Shawn: Incercargill? It's usually the lowest temp on the radio weather forecast anyway.

Which is the coldest town in Kiwi land?
Comment by Colin Gavaghan on April 19, 2010 at 2:54am
The difference, folks, is that we tend to have double glazing and central heating in Scotland!

Well, I for one would like to know what winter in Dunedin feels like. I think I might go and find out.

I think you'll survive winter, if you can survive scotland! :) Although cant remember ever spending a winter in Dunedin! :)

Hello. I've just recently arrived in Dunedin from Scotland. The place seems great so far - pretty vibrant intellectually and culturally, especially given its size - though we've yet to survive our first winter!

"The first buses started running on 6 January 2009 - 800 are running around the whole of the UK and it is also planned to place 1,000 adverts on the London Underground featuring quotations from famous atheists. Subsequently, two large LCD screens have been placed on Oxford Street, central London.[4]"

Woohoo!

I'm gonna have to take a trip up to london to see that! :)

I don't know if you guys have heard about the Blasphemy law that was passed in Ireland last year!!!!! Which is odd as England, Scotland and Wales knew NOTHING about it. There was little to NO press on the matter. Well Ireland is jumping back and everyone is blaspheming all over the place and they are having a vote later this year to removed the law! YAY there is justice, now lets see if it goes through!

I don't know where this bus campaign originally came from but they started to try it around London. A Bus driver refused to drive the bus as it was against his religion and he didn't want to have to deal with angry members of the public.
You have a job and you work for a company. For them to be able to employ you they get alot of money from advertising. You don't want to work there you don't. Nuff said.


I can't believe that because atheists aren't a 'religion' that we get less say that any other beliefs!!! Didn't a church respond with a similar yet more provoking campaign? (Or was that in london?) "There definitely is a god" with exactly the same font and sizes.

Lol we just call it QI. But those shows are basically all that I watch! Mock the week is awesome!

Update- we had some sun today! I mean proper sun!!!

Back to Nz! As this is a kiwi group! I heard that there was an atheist bus campaign, does anyone know if this is true?

Any country that gives us. Stephen Fry, Bill Bailey, Eddie Izzard, Jimmy Carr, Rhod Gilbert etc, etc, etc. Well it's a good place!

There's this TV channel over here (Called Dave... don't know why) Which shows some of the better comedy quiz shows. Unfortunately it shows it over and over and over again. lol
