Show 18 Thursday 20 April

Watch today's show at grouper or YouTube.

Note: On today's show - the sound/picture timing is out at the start - I don't know why this happened. There is also a strange noise in the background. Sorry about this. I will try to sort it out soon.


Kia Ora, in Stick News today, an American man has been fined for interfering with a traffic light.

The man said he had timekeeping issues. He was always running late. So, he turned to an online shopping site for help.
He paid $100 on ebay for a device which changes traffic lights from red to green.
He used the device for two years before police caught him. He said it was useful and help him cut his time driving to work.

The man now faces a fine of $50.
Police have also recommend that his next ebay purchase be an alarm clock.
And that was Stick News for Thursday the 20th of April.
Kia Ora.
