    A little bit late to the party but I wanted to explain that haka that was linked further up the page.
    Originally doing the haka prior to the game was to signify the importance of Maori culture within New Zealand, and the haka that was performed was the same haka that was done by the North Island Maori before a major battle with the Maori of the South Island.

    It's purpose has been eschewed a bit since then, so much so that the new haka they do (that in the above video) is very much just a piece of propaganda for the New Zealand Rugby Union (you can see the translations on the wiki page here).

    Regarding the freezing in place of the opponent during the haka; opinions differ both here and abroad as to what the best reaction to it is. Some believe that doing anything other than walking away is disrespectful, while some players themselves believe the only way to not let it psych you out is to stare it in the face.
    A great example of this was a match against wales (Video can be found on YouTube or see below) where there was something of a stand-off after the haka, as neither team wanted to be the first to move.

    A perfectly lucid discussion of 12 tone music and what creativity and music is, featuring bird bowls, laser bats and zombie Schoenberg giving copyright law a kicking. I could not love this more.

    If you haven't already seen the Dumb Ways to Die video, you should watch it first right here.

    Then definitely watch this great parody:

    Here, have a thing.

    Edit: In case people get the wrong idea, this is uploaded and subtitled by the studio and is not piracy or anything like that.

    When I showed that grasshopper clip to a friend, her response was 'We haven't done that yet?'

    As impressive as that is, check this out from almost 20 years ago.
