NZ road rules - second to none

Share |
NZ had finally decided to change its antiquated road rules. In its wisdom some years ago, NZ bureaucrats decided to develop a set of unique road rules which even its smartest intellectuals would not abide by. These road rules are interesting because they attempt to embody 'politeness' into driver road rules. The scheme was a blatant failure. Why? Because people are inherently self-interested. The 'polite society' succumbed to the realities of human nature.
I am not even going to bother describing these silly road rules. Why? Because they are so counter-intuitive, you will start to have nightmares. But get this - these road rules - which no one follows - will not be changed for another 2 years. You might wonder why because the logic is that they should come in after the 2012 Rugby World Club. Why? I guess because NZ loves the opportunity to suffer longer, and because it wants to utterly confuse foreigners with its 'unique culture'. And I guess it does not mind losing a few more lives in senseless accidents. Oh, and I guess it never occurred to people that what comes naturally to people will be an easy adjustment. Expatriate NZ'ers will thank you for sparing them any more confusion.
Rather than waiting until 2012 to apply the changes, why not simply send every household a brochure about the road changes. i.e. 1.5 million households x $2 = $3mil plus costs. This is a lot cheaper than the $70 mil in losses due to increased road accidents. NZ could also do with the resulting lives for population growth, and it might even improve the country's rankings in the international relevance index.

Japan Foreclosed Property 2015-2016 - Buy this 5th edition report!

Over the years, this ebook has been enhanced with additional research to offer a comprehensive appraisal of the Japanese foreclosed property market, as well as offering economic and industry analysis. The author travels to Japan regularly to keep abreast of the local market conditions, and has purchased several foreclosed properties, as well as bidding on others. Japan is one of the few markets offering high-yielding property investment opportunities. Contrary to the 'rural depopulation' scepticism, the urban centres are growing, and they have always been a magnet for expatriates in Asia. Japan is a place where expats, investors (big or small) can make highly profitable real estate investments. Japan is a large market, with a plethora of cheap properties up for tender by the courts. Few other Western nations offer such cheap property so close to major infrastructure. Japan is unique in this respect, and it offers such a different life experience, which also makes it special. There is a plethora of property is depopulating rural areas, however there are fortnightly tenders offering plenty of property in Japan's cities as well. I bought a dormitory 1hr from Tokyo for just $US30,000.
You can view foreclosed properties listed for as little as $US10,000 in Japan thanks to depopulation and a culture that is geared towards working for the state. I bought foreclosed properties in Japan and now I reveal all in our expanded 350+page report. The information you need to know, strategies to apply, where to get help, and the tools to use. We even help you avoid the tsunami and nuclear risks since I was a geologist/mining finance analyst in a past life. Check out the "feedback" in our blog for stories of success by customers of our previous reports.
