  1. Obviously work in the job for 2 years. So 2 years from the day you start with the employer
  2. You are too young for God's waiting room anyway. Wait until you are in your 70s at least.
  3. I think you will find all retirement villages have an exit fee.
  4. What do you mean they discovered? Didn't they read the contract when they bought the place. All the fees are in the contract so if you don't read it you can only blame yourself.

    Climate Emergency 🆘

    Lots of crazy poliicies, not just ULEZ. Maybe you will get 20mph speed limits soon like in Wales
  6. I would only consider it a scam if people are not getting what they paid for. If people know the course objectives and syllabus and want to do it, it is not a scam. Not everyone does a course to secure a high paying job either, some just want to expand their knowledge in some field or other.
  7. You think Unis should be kept for the elites only? I don't really see a problem for it if there is a demand and people sign up for it. Your contention that it make Australia a laughing stock, maybe Melbourne Uni a laughing stock, will be borne out in time if there is no demand and they withdraw the course. So let up defer judgement. I'm sure the course is only offered if there is some demand out there. She is a major success story after all. And these days Unis have to make money to survive.

    Converting a Smart TV from UK to Aus

    The reality is hardly anyone ever needs to change a plug. I haven't in nearly 40 years in Australia. Only recent migrants who brought some electrical appliance from overseas would need to. But it is better to get a professional to do it when it comes to electricity. Many people have been killed thinking they would save a few dollars by doing it themselves. Just buy a new kettle for goodness sake. They are cheap as chips.

    That sounds a great idea, getting tiny children to mess around with electricity.

    NHS pension- asset/income test for pension

    I don't see why they wouldn't count assets in a fund outside Australia as an asset. I would be amazed if they allowed a loophole like that. Superannuation here is counted as an asset once you are over age pension age or have started to draw on it. This might help the OP. https://www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/income-and-assets-from-outside-australia-can-affect-your-age-pension?context=22526
  11. I wonder if many of you said the same things about Kevin Spacey when allegations surfaced about him. He has since been cleared of all criminal charges brought against him
  12. He dumped her actually. By text message.
  13. RIP to the wonderful man Ron Barassi. Simply the best and a wonderful man. Most of the people on here will have never even heard of this man.
  14. Lefties are not the sharpest tools in the shed as a general observation.
