So an earthquake and tsunami devastates areas of Samoa and Tonga, kills scores of people, injures more, wipes out entire villages. The tsunami is on its way to New Zealand. How do some Kiwi's react? Do they panic?

Nah, they just go to the nearest beach and wait for it to arrive (link).

Facepalm. Frankly I'm kinda embarrassed I have to share a country with these people.....

I particularly liked the comment from one woman, who said "don't worry, we've got it sorted - we can get to our car in 10 mins if we run flat out".

They should be fined and charged for the potential cost of a rescue operation.
