GCSB need to fix their equipment

October 10th, 2012 at 11:48 am by David Farrar

Stuff reports:

A mysterious low-pitched humming sound has been troubling some Wellington residents for the last few days and it seems no-one has any idea what it might be.

The Wellington City Council has had several calls over the past few days with the most recent being about 5am today.

Spokesman Richard MacLean said the complaints had been coming in from Mt Victoria, Newtown and Mt Cook residents. “We are interested to hear if this starts to become a constant thing. We are keeping our ear to the ground.”

It’s just feedback from the underground surveillance system, as they change frequencies to go digital!

    Perhaps it is the water company increasing water flow through the pipeline to/from Wellington? Could cause the pipes to vibrate from the increased volume of water.

    Surely it’s Huawei installing their equipment? As they already know they’ve got the contract (they’re reading parliamentary emails now) they’re just being efficient and getting work done upfront.

    I’m sure it’s just the hum of government worker drones. It is Wellington after all.

    You shouldn’t have said that… now some moron from the lamestream media will miss the tag that says ‘Humour’ and think it ‘fact’ and before we know it, the departing Walrus or the resident Threedork will be breathlessly reporting it as some form of covert monitoring aimed at the Parliamentary Press Gallery…. :D

    Or worse… Penny Not-So will start gumming on about it….. :(

    A Cop in Northern Ireland found that he had been bugged by his ‘friends’ in British intelligence. To check if this was the case he decided to stop paying his phone bill. The phone was never disconnected.

    The problem though is that making this joke will only be treated as real by your local neighborhood conspiracy theorist.

    Reports of a tsunami scare in Wellington were also dismissed when it was pointed out that the suspected sound of waves crashing was in fact the normal sound of government beureaucrats (sorry spelling!) paper shuffling.

    It was the Greenpeace New Zealand Branch acting as moles popping up all over the place and calling for a Royal Commission.

    Taniwha. The problem will go away when you deposit a cheque with enough zeros.

    Peter- I was about to suggest the same thing! Everyone knows the Taniwha get grumpy if they are not ‘appeased’ with cash or cheque on a regular basis..

    That will be the “Love” taniwha then.

    In Māori mythology, taniwha (Māori pronunciation: [ˈtanifa]) are beings that live in deep pools in rivers, dark caves, or in the sea, especially in places with dangerous currents or deceptive breakers.

    Breaker Bay of course.

    They may be considered highly respected kaitiaki (protective guardians) of money and places, or in some traditions as dangerous, predatory beings, which for example would defraud others.
