      If you are depressed you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace you are living in the present.

      that looked to be Australian companies that make a business of getting stuff from overseas and thus avoiding the tax. But I guess you can buy directly from an overseas company. Strictly speaking though, don't they have to fill in a customs form and declare contents and value? I guess they could lie, but they run the risk of their post being stopped. I guess with x-ray machines it wouldn't be hard to know what is in the parcels.

      I think the UK and USA try and tax everything. I expect some makes it through, but I know I have paid vat on some things I've bought overseas.
