I don't think it's reasonable at all. Nor do I agree with conscription - as it is inherently sexist. And disempowers people (males anyhow, females are exempt) from making their own choices. My dad was conscripted to fight for Australia. His number was drawn and he had no choice. For an insight as to...

Hi Nightwing, I just replied to your post in another thread. Have you considered stepping away from teaching? I don't know what the local requirements are there but how about lawn maintenance? Strimming edges and mowing lawns is much lower stress than dealing with other people. Pay is reasonable and...

Maybe look into some private tutoring gigs so you're working with one or a small group of children versus an entire class? I can only speak for myself here, but I would find this much easier to cope with. One private student who is motivated to learn or a classroom of 30 unruly kids to deal with. A...

Technically should be 6 white Volvos, he's from the north pole after all.... Volvos are known as Swedish Valiants in Australia and driving one is liable to make you ribbing stock from all of your mates. In Aus a Volvo is usually found doing 70 in the right lane of the Monash Freeway with someone re...

I've always had side hussles. Worked all matter of jobs when at school and uni. When I graduated I worked full time, did another job in the same field one day a week and picked up casual work on my days off in other areas. It allowed me to get ahead financially while I was still quite young to buy a...

I typically like dogs more than people. Dogs are much much more trustworthy than people. Dogs always show you their true thoughts and won't stab you in the back. They also don't care about superficial crap, where you live, what brand clothes you wear or how rich you are. Give me a dog over a person...

I've always had a few special interests. Things that I've had a liking for as a kid that come back to me intensely for periods of time. Mostly I tend to read about them intensively online but as I get older don't feel the need to acquire the gear concerning them. I don't think of it as that much dif...

I've never understood the obsession with height, I'm quite tall that's just how nature made me. I noticed in the dating world it seems to be a big deal where a woman doesn't want a bloke shorter than her. Anyone who meets me in real life can see how tall I am, unless I wear platform shoes or saw 6 i...

Idk maybe as one gets older it gets a little easier to deal with, but I worry when I am old I'll be like afraid to sleep and such because I don't want to die in my sleep and never wake up again. I actually want to die in my sleep. No pain, no suffering, my time is just up and I don't wake up. I've ...

Yes. There is even a song about that, believe it or not, about outhouses and red back spiders. Slim Newton. Well known Aussie song from back in the 60s I think. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnEqmnOfV6Q Gosh. Didnt think that it would be so hard. Aussies and Kiwis on WP would just ...go to the ba...

You've heard of it...but what do you observe on a daily basis? When you flush the toilet, does the water spin clockwise or anticlockwise? I'll take a look when I go next and report back. It may also be influenced by the jets at the top of the bowl as to which way they face or are facing straight do...
