Boy, with the NZ dollar sinking faster than a Russian submarine and the trade
deficit blowing out like a Firestone tire on a Ford Explorer -- I think we're more
than overdue for this week's dose of "Lighten Up."
Fun With Guns.
Everyone knows that guns are dangerous things if you're standing on the wrong
end of one -- but which is the wrong end if the gun is very powerful?
Check out the MPEG videos on this site -- they're large (2-3MB) but well worth
the time it takes to download them. You'll get the idea by starting at the top
and working down. I'm sure you'll get as much of a kick out of them as the people
who feature in them do.
Banks Never Make Mistakes?
Of course banks make mistakes -- and this site contains a very long and
entertaining diary of the events that surround one of those mistakes.
Kids, don't try this using your local ATM machine please.

That Magnetic Thing Again
I am currently organising to meet with Mr Nathan Balasingham and view some
of the supporting evidence he has for his magnetic
fuel conditioning device.
I have also invited Mr Balasingham to offer his response to the various
opinions and comments that have been made in respect to the device -- I hope
he will send me something I can publish next week.
With any luck, Aardvark readers will soon be able to draw their own
conclusions on these devices, having been given both sides of the story.
Calling All Australians
As regular Aardvark readers will have noticed, the recent change to the website
format included the addition of an Australian headlines section to satisfy
the growing number of Australian readers that visit regularly.
In order to expand into the Australian marketplace I'd like to hear from anyone
living across the ditch who fancies themselves as a bit of an "Ocker Aardvark"
and would like to contribute on a regular or occasional basis to this site.
If you think you've got what it takes,
drop me a line and we'll talk about it.
Political Rants And Raves
Since I'd like Aardvark to retain its focus on Internet and new-economy
issues, I've decided that in future I'll host any mainly political

it will attract the type of political debate and discussion I think the country
Anyone (left, center, or right -- the site will be politically agnostic) who wants
to have their own political rant and rave is welcome to
contact me and, providing your offering is not defamatory,
offensive, or too badly written, I'll publish it. Regular columnists would

you introduced some more of your friends or associates to Aardvark?
After all, what other site on the local Net scene offers fresh and often
controversial daily content without advertising? Come on folks -- spread the
word. Don't get carried away and start emailing everyone you know (that'd be
spam eh?) -- just tell one or two people who you think might find this site
as useful and worthwhile as you do.
As always, your feedback is welcomed.
