Re: IT employment market UK vs Aus

I agree - managed 12 months in Sydney but no one would pay the rates. Moved to Brissie and doing better here. BUT there was still a lot more spare cash at the end of the month when I worked in the UK!

Re: Justine Egg Bieber

If you watch closely, 3 land at the same time, then 5 more. AND they all seem to come from above. I dont think the person paid to egg them, I rekon it was one of the stage crew from above.

Re: Soccer vs League

On the contrary, give the league blokes a soccer ball and they will show you an ok game of soccer. Give the girls a rugby ball and they wont have a clucking fue.
