More insanity

I watched Triple X last night for the first time. It was so action-packed and unpredicatable that I fell asleep. Not even the admittedly slightly delectable VinDieselArms were enough to keep me awake. And that base-jump off that low bridge? Please! When I fell asleep, X was outrunning an avalanche on his snowboard. Now, suspension of disbelief is one thing, but stupidity is something altogether different.

From notabouthim the other day came this information:

Average speed of downhill skier: 30-40m/s
Average speed of avalanche: 48m/s

And, skis are faster than snowboards. So, maybe I didn't miss anything by falling asleep, since X would've died trying this stunt and ended the movie. And, my dream movies were so much more interesting.

And Nicholas Cage's voice is sexier. Yes it is.

Now, here's a real base jump. Kids, do not try this at home. Tats will not try this, ever. Climbing up stuff, no problem. Sliding down stuff, no problem. Jumping off stuff - no way.

Now that I can eat again, I have some catching up to do, and I feel a fish and chip mission coming on. I have been to all the ones on my 'recommended' list (except the ones in places like Napier. There is no snow or rock in Napier - why would I go there?). So far, the top two are Aro (mmmm, Aro) and Miramar Fish Supply.

Anybody care to recommend somewhere?
