Went to my boyfriend's place yesterday to watch the new Doctor Who episode with him and his flatmates. One is also a Doctor Who fan and the other we have now converted, having showed her "Midnight", "The Empty Child/The Doctor Dances" and the new episode, "The Eleventh Hour". The episode was slow to download so we watched other videos while we waited for it, including the one from which the title of this post is taken: New Zealand's first home-grown internet meme. Or at least, the first home-grown New Zealand internet emem I've heard of. Basically, a guy from ACT on campus, the student arm of the ACT Party, was on a morning current afairs show talking about why Earth Hour is a bad idea. Hilarity ensued. The interview contains some truly headdesk-worthy logic (If pollution from our power consumption is causing environmental problems, let's just consume MORE POWER to solve the problems!) but also some gems: "It fails on three fun-loving levels" and the meme "I think my argument is so powerful, it's not necessary to talk about it".
And here's the video )
Aaaaand my thoughts on Doctor Who )

I heard about this on the radio this morning.  Best student prank ever (assuming that's what it was).
In other news, apparently there have been UFO sightings in Kaikoura.  Makes me want to write about aliens in Palmerston North even more.
I love this country.
