Legal "A bill recently introduced in Congress would greatly expand the exemption to the Fair Labor Standards Act for IT employees, ending overtime benefits for many more types of workers, including network, database and security specialists." The Democrat senator of North-Carolina has introduced an even worse version of the bill, which specifically exempts database and network specialists and security professionals from overtime benefits. Say, isn't some company building a huge data centre in North-Carolina? I'm sure it's all a coincidence.

Europe is great if you want to live in a tiny apartment, drive a micro car and have miserable weather.

We Australians prefer our huge houses, big powerful cars, fantastic beaches and great weather,

Nah, that's England. Not Europe at all, ask any Englishman.

... and cheap booze and kangaroo meatballs. I truly envy you the last item, I hear it's great with spaghetti.

Be careful with your wish. It becomes reality sooner than you might want. :-)

That would be very bad joss indeed :-) We'd have to give up buying a shinier phone every other month and perhaps cut down on smoking too, I'm afraid.
