Destroy New Zealand's King Joffrey Statue With The Power Of The Internet

The character of Joffrey Baratheon from Game of Thrones is not a popular one, to put it mildly.

The Untouched Natural Beauty Of New Zealand Is Like A Magical World

I’m one of those horrible humans who take nature for granted and recharge myself through indoor fluorescent lighting. I like walking city streets, I like going into city bars and I like eating city food. Feeling tyres screech, hearing sirens wail, coming across unexplainable damp spots, that’s all what I’m used to.
