    : I got of the "Taulau Bus" only to find myself walking alone. So, Sione Mokofisi and the others, as much as you may not want to, the Tau Lau Bus will be kept in service because it is the most comfortable mode that excites our writers. In this Bus, you are not going to be responsible for anything and you are not required to do any work but throw trash into the fire to encourage the tau lau. - Sione Lousiale Kava

    : Most foreign and local scholars warned of a possible tsunami in our small island nation, Tonga, due to multiple earthquakes we are randomly experiencing. But what these scholars do not seem to understand that around the island of 'Eua, there is something hidden, we call 'Tonga Deep', with an approximate depth of more than 5 miles down the ocean. Meaning no matter how big an earthquake in Tonga, and if there is a tsunami coming, Tonga Deep diffuses the tsunami and weaken this monster before it even come to surface. - Siosaia Moehau

    : We live in a world where finding fault in others seems to be the favorite blood sport. It has long been the basis of political campaign strategy. It is the theme of much television programming across the world. It sells newspapers. Whenever we meet anyone, our first, almost unconscious reaction may be to look for imperfections. - Joshua Nehasi
