This would be laugh out loud funny if it wasn't so, well, weird and sad. But having had a couple professional dealings with the Whales in the past 20 years... I can't say I'm overly surprised.

@lightweight Very weird story - I hadn't heard a word of it before.

Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence, as Carl Sagan (and others before him) are keen to remind us ...

@jim Indeed - you might even have been at Egressive when David Whale (the senior Terrible fella) came in to "discuss opportunities" with us... t'was amusing - those of us involved heroically maintained straight faces in the meeting but burst out laughing at the sheer depth and breadth of the bullshit he spewed the moment the door closed behind him. Needless to say, we never did any business together.

@lightweight @jim "The Terrible New Zealand Charitable Trust." Seriously??

@jim @lightweight It gets seriously weird around here:
"Seddon-Smith told the DIA how Zach’s growing capabilities were constantly surprising him"
