> I guess there's too much resistance to changing from coal.

I guess so. I guess change costs money. That's why government is supposed to alter the taxation to give subsidies and handouts to incentivise the change. To help distribute the costs of change or something. Increase the tax on 'dirty industry'. Helping them see the 'true costs'.

I found jeans today.

I've been bitching and moaning for a while that I couldn't find any jeans in NZ at any price.

I found some 'PJ Jeans' a while back in Christchurch from a 'road works' shop... Where tradies go for clothes. Where prisoners go when they get out. Things like good socks for people to wear in their work boots... I found a good pair of moleskins in, uh, army green, I suppose. A little too small unfortunately. I also found a pair of jeans that were 100 per cent denim. A little too big unfortunately. I'm an 11 is the problem. Not a 10. Not a 12. An 11. And often times they don't make an 11.

Anyway... I managed to get another couple of pairs of the jeans. Made in china. Whatever.

But I actually found some 501s. Originals they call them. Button fly. Straight leg. Blue. Red tap. 5 pocket. Pre-shrunk, I guess. Cotton made in china. Huh. Probably better that way? I hope they pay their workers???

Not cheap. $170. I think... From memory... That's how much they cost when I was in High School. That is how much they cost when I was in College, for sure. $130 sometimes... But the 'classic' ones were typically $170 full price. And... There they were. Huh.

I really want some of these:
