    [Pakeha forums] Protect yourselves...

    ...from the SUN!

    I found this cool app which shows the current and daily maximum forecast UV index for your location. Really handy, not just for us pasty people, but anyone who wants to be sun smart over the summer. Especially useful when you have kids.

    I'm heading home for Christmas. Every time I do this I'm like "yay sun" and then I get home and it's all "**** this shit". I don't need no UV index to remind me that the sun looks at me with the same excitement as an eight year old hovering over the icecream freezer by the supermarket checkout...

    lol

    Love hot summer days. Probably because it represents the coming of a few days of escape where I get blasted and muck around on a beach. Just gotta slip, slop, slap, and wrap.

    Off to a European winter soon, and missing five weeks of summer is a legitimate downside.

    Just feel more alive and active during the hotter months.

    its pretty good, plus company is paying for all the expenses and the boss is throwing in some extra stuff . Yeah, it is pretty nuts there atm, i am back and forth and also doing some remote stuff for the London and Manchester centres. I guess Kiwis are cheaper to hire ?:P

    In my experience of working in the UK and Germany, a typical Kiwi will impress people because we do five different roles at once, and do them competently, because that's the way we work in smaller NZ companies.

    Whereas a Brit will say "u wot m8, that's some other bugger's problem". And a German will say "nein, das ist nicht eine Funktion meines Stellenbeschreibung".

    It's more the fact that NZ companies are cheap cretins and won't hire staff, but try and get the one guy to do four different roles at once. THey will usually have 12 people in the HR department doing the same thing though. I think they may be breeding in those offices.

    Come on mate, your brother's drop-kick low-achieving daughter has to get a job somewhere, just chuck her in with all the other deadweights as a favour.
