    Yeah, so what! You are feeble minded.

    spoilt, indolent, selfish little individuals. Try living in a third world country and come to terms with what they have to put up with every day. Australia is a land of opportunity and a very comfortable lifestyle. It is up to you yourself to make the difference. Don't...

    Housing is a double-edged sword in Australia.

    It's expensive regardless of whether you rent or buy and both have major disadvantages. With renting, there is a risk of being kicked out of a place by the real estate or the owners, and I've had that happen to me recently, and be forced to look somewhere else to live, real...
