Watch: Is this the coolest thing to do in NZ?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

What do you get when you combine go-carts with the luge, and race down the side of a ski mountain? It's called mountain carting; and it's easily the most fun Brook Sabin has ever had.

This cool ride is at Cardrona - the South Island ski resort. Although most Kiwis head there during the winter ski season, in the warmer months it's a summer playground. Click here to read all about it. Have you given this a go?

Poll: Do you ever eat food past its best before date?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

In the US last year, Mom's Organic Market founder and CEO Scott Nash did something many are afraid to do: He ate a cup of yoghurt months after its expiration date. And then tortillas a year past their expiration date.

"I mean, I ate heavy cream I think 10 weeks past date," says Nash, "and then meat sometimes a good month past its date. It didn't smell bad. Rinse it off, good to go."

It was all part of his year-long experiment to test the limits on food that had passed its expiration date.

Poll: Would you expect your parents to help you into your first home?

Stacey Reporter from Stuff

Almost a quarter of young people say the older generations should help first-home buyers into the property market, a new survey shows.

Westpac NZ polled 1000 people about their opinion on parents assisting their children into their first homes.

It found widespread acceptance of the idea: More than half the parents said they would loan money interest-free and only 38 per cent would expect it to be paid back.
