Lock up your investments and leave them. If you're saving for the long term, sometimes choosing investments well, then virtually forgetting about them for a time is the best thing to do.
That's really what
KiwiSaver investments are about. If you don't have a really good reason to cash up, such as buying your first home, and you're in an investment that will grow at the best rate for someone with your risk tolerance, then the set and forget approach will repay you handsomely when you finally retire.

81 People Describe The Moment They Realized They Had Met The Dumbest Person Ever


4 in 10 Americans believe that humans were created in their present form about 10,000 years ago, showed this Gallup survey, a belief that will likely raise many eyebrows among the educated rest of the world.
Meanwhile, psychologists say that in order “to understand American anti-intellectualism, it’s important to realize that smart people can embrace dumb ideas.” But the truth is, it’s not only Americans in particular who fall victims to clearly fake bits of wisdom. Nobody is immune to that, but it doesn’t make it any less cringy.
So when someone on Reddit asked a seemingly basic question “who was the dumbest person you met?” the answers started flowing with each one overshadowing the previous one. And although we can’t jump to conclusions to determine someone’s sheer level of stupidity just from a single post, it doesn’t mean we can’t at least eye-roll on repeat.

Batuhan: Dumb statute

SunStar
April 11, 2021
STUPID laws do exist, even in the most civilized countries in the world. Here are some that, believe it or not, still exist in the United States today (“50 Craziest State Laws From Around the United States,” Kara Ladd, “Good Housekeeping,” 18 June 2020). Here’s a sample of some of the dumbest.
In Arizona ... it’s illegal for a donkey to sleep in a bathtub.
In Virginia ... you can’t go trick-or-treating if you’re over 14 years old.
In Vermont ... it’s illegal for women to wear fake teeth without their husband’s approval.
In New Hampshire ... it’s unlawful to pick up seaweed off the beach.

Dubai diaries: Are documentaries dumbing down?

Can The Lost Pirate Kingdom be called a doc?
When did documentaries become more about entertainment than learning? Far be it from me to say ‘it was better in my day’, because generally I welcome time’s evolutionary processes. “No, dad, packets of crisps and chocolate bars aren’t as big as they once were, but your trousers fit a bit better right?” However it was after being seduced into watching Netflix’s new The Lost Pirate Kingdom a thought crossed my mind: “are we missing out on these series’ purposes: to acquire knowledge about history, in favour of merely recounting racy pirate stories?” A similar flashpoint arose when clicking on the streaming giant’s Roman Empire (2016). Following much the same formula as TLPK, stories of Caesar, Caligula et al. are presented as true study with trite analysis from various bespectacled experts whilst a classic British actor narrates the action, though for the main part the programme consists of a collection of shonky vignettes performed by actors whose combined wage bill could not have outweighed the catering budget. The footage invariably shows reenactments of violence, passion, deception or a combination of all three.

Illinois Car Thief Arrested After Asking Cops For Directions


Illinois Car Thief Arrested After Asking Cops For Directions
You'd think that after stealing a car, you'd know better than to stop for a minute to chat with the police about the best way to get where you're going. You'd think that, and you'd be quite wrong.
Before you judge too harshly, you need to remember that there aren't a lot of copies of "Stealing Cars For Dummies" still in print, so it stands to reason that a newbie in the world of grand theft might make a mistake or two.

And that's exactly what happened to a man named Lafayette Moore. According to a story up at Patch.com, Joliet police say he stole a car from the BP Amoco gas station in Joliet late Friday afternoon. The police say Mr. Moore drove the stolen car several miles toward Joliet's far east side only to ask a Joliet officer for some help in finding his way to Interstate 80.

Whanganui beach sand issue: The problem is blowing in the wind
10 Mar, 2021 04:00 AM
3 minutes to read
Laurel Stowell is a reporter for the Whanganui [email protected]
An annual spend of $50,000 to shift sand around on Castlecliff Beach is "dumb" and people who want it changed should tell the Whanganui District Council, councillor James Barron says.
The long-time problem of windblown
sand at Castlecliff Beach became a focus for the Coastal Restoration Trust conference's free workshop Working with Nature on Tuesday, March 9.
Before leading the 70 participants out into the dunes, Castlecliff Coast Care co-ordinator Graham Pearson said the council spent about $40,000 a year on shifting sand and driftwood off the swimming area by the Surf Club, only for westerly winds and longshore drift to bring it back.

Birmingham rapper/singer Miss Lafamilia has shared a new single: a collaboration with Tottenham's Abra Cadabra. 'Dumb Flex' is her first release on new label Island.
An icy drill track, 'Dumb Flex' sees Miss Lafamilia both rap and sing the catchy hook. She's a natural singer and her bars are solid - especially when you consider she's only been rapping for about a year.
A matching video premiered on GRM Daily last night. See it:
"Dumb flex is being lit in all your might!!" she said, "whether it be clothing, cars, jewellery or even just your aura, flex what you can."

If You're Handsome and Dumb, You'll Do Great on Dating Apps | 94.1 ZBQ

Are you a good-looking dude who can't do basic multiplication? If so, be thankful for Tinder! Also, it looks like you have a little drool on your chin, might want to wipe that off.
According to a new study out of the University of Geneva in Switzerland, dating apps have led to an increase in the number of couples that are, quote, "high-educated women and lower-educated men."
Why? Because dating apps are so focused around PICTURES, women can overlook a guy's intelligence . . . which is something they wouldn't necessarily be able to do if they first met in person.

The 20 Best Scottish Albums Of The 21st Century

A special St Andrew's Day countdown...
The past two decades have drastically altered Scottish life at an intimate level.
When the Millennium dawned the country was only just learning to grapple with self-governance, attempting to escape the harsh Thatcherite shadow of de-industrialisation by embracing the future.
Since then, the question of Scottish identity and what it means for the nation's future has been blown wide open, resulting in the nation-wide debate that erupted around the 2014 independence referendum.
The fault lines remain, and these are most obviously visible in Scottish arts, in the way that a fresh generation of creative minds have pursued new endeavours.
