What really scares me is that they all have significantly cheaper health care AND education, which means Americans not only make they least, they pay the most.
Bish whet? Fuck America
Also For Australia thats the minimum wage at 15 it goes up every year until you’re 21
Canada has actually gone up to 10.25 some times ago, still though, Australia damn, I guess it makes it worth surviving the heat
Pretty sure that’s he minimum wage for people at 21 in Australia, it’s lower if you’re younger.
Yeah, that’s the minimum. Maybe bamboothief was thinking of casual loading? (extra 25% if you work casual rather than part- or full-time)
http://www.fairwork.gov.au/pay/national-minimum-wage/pages/default.aspx Adding in what is an accurate link to these almost right statements.
(And yes, America’s attitude to employmee rights, much like health and education is absolutely nonsensical and this is why “lower middle class” standards if living in Australia are much much higher than in the US. Not that we don’t have our own problems with poverty but yeah. Working poor not nearly as much of a widespread issue, all up.)
hey so remember a while back there was a massive elephant seal hanging around west australia and people named him steven sealberg?
there’s now a massive 5 meters long shark hanging around the coast of west australia and they named it…

In 1808, Napoleon, running out of scenic holiday destinations to invade, somehow totally forgot about his neighbor to the south, Spain. So that year he dispatched his troops, kicking off the Peninsular War.
Only 20 years old and working as a barmaid in the town of Valdepenas, Juana Galan was not expecting a surge of French soldiers to come storming through her village. But on June 6, that’s exactly what happened. At that time, most of the men were fighting Napoleon’s forces elsewhere in the nation. Juana, unfazed by things like rifles and Frenchmen and French riflemen, began organizing the women in her village to form a trap for the approaching army.
When the army arrived, Juana and her friends were ready. They dumped boiling water and oil on the French troops, which by all accounts will instantly take the fight out of pretty much anyone. Then Juana, armed with only a batan, beat back the heavily armed French cavalry with her squad of village women, almost none of whom were armed with guns.
The French retreated, giving up on capturing not just Juana’s town but the entire province of La Mancha, leading to ultimate Spanish victory. Today, she is seen in Spain as a national hero, a symbol of resistance, strength, patriotism, feminism and hitting shit with a stick.
That’s one hell of a portrait.
hitting shit with a stick
This is maybe the best portrait of anyone that I’ve ever seen, ever.
Sometimes you just gotta.
Michelle Rodriguez wants you to read LAZARUS.
(Well, actually, I think she wants to play Forever, but, you know, the one could lead to the other…).
Mostly, I’m blogging this because it’s MICHELLE RODRIGUEZ and she likes our book! And that’s reason enough. So there.
One of my favourite actor’s raving about an excellent book by one of my favourite writers! <3
Today will be a good day.
Or be told they’re exaggerating or lying.
Not that I’m bitter about being left with no treatment for six months with a knee three times its size. Fucking orthopaedic surgeon.
I liked this scene.
Not as much as the one where he fought Mikel (awesome Israeli fighter with amazing boobs and they get all wet and hair flick and stuff).
But it’s a nice scene okay.
