it's not only terrorists who do these things

Last night in Auckland, as the votes were being counted in a cliff hanger general election, some guy stole one of these

and decided to have a go at flying it into this

the tallest structure in the Southern hemisphere

He was unsuccessful and ended landing in the sea, with police in hot pursuit.

Tall buildings, planes with kamakaze pilots, it’s not always terrorism. Long before violent threats from other nations or displaced people, we had nutters. Nothing like getting a little perspective on events.

I am reminded of the classic line from "Groundhog Day" by Bill Murray's character, Phil the Weatherman "People like blood-sausage too. People are morons". So, so true.
