Re Earthquakes in Christchurch, Firstly they are treating the damage to the CBD as new damage, my sister lives in Christchurch she said the constant shakes are really hard on the nerves, no one can relax and just when you do  along comes another shake. I live in Oamaru 3 hours south of chch and I have to admit I am glad that we are here and not there.

YOUR DRINKING ?? ;) i can tell.....he's a physocology student and they need lots of help in Cambodia.
I read an article recently about a hijack of an ice-cream van near Hastings a few days ago.  The guy stole the van and then bombarded people with ice cream....can you confirm the truth of the newspaper article. :scratch_ones_head:

Yes indeed , Sam, not two hundred yards from here round the corner.
He is of no fixed abode and is remanded in custody over Christmas-New Year.
It's amazing what journalists pick up to amuse us.

Mr Whippy van hijacked in drunken rampagePosted Thu Dec 16, 2010 11:37am AEDT
A drunk New Zealander hijacked a Mr Whippy van at knifepoint then hurled ice creams at passers-by during a vanilla and alcohol-fuelled rampage, reports said.
Joseph David Banks, 21, admitted running amok in the North Island town of Hastings last week, but was so drunk he could not remember the incident, the Hawke's Bay Today newspaper reported.
Court documents showed that on the evening of December 7, Banks armed himself with a butcher's knife and threatened the life of a woman holding her young child on the street, before crawling into a nearby Mr Whippy truck.
The unemployed man then used the van's facilities to make soft serve ice creams and throw them at people on the footpath.
When police confronted Banks, the ice cream van bandit refused to cool down and resisted arrest until back-up arrived.
Banks pleaded guilty on Wednesday to a series of charges, including threatening to kill, resisting police, disorderly behaviour and possession of an offensive weapon.
He was remanded in custody for sentencing on Friday.

GG, that would be very hard on the nerves indeed.  Hope your sister is OK.  There've been a lot of tremors in and around Christchurch, and it's a very scary feeling.  :air_kiss:
