Re: Like crocodiles, green iguanas make appealing pets when young

A croc is more appealing than a pet bird say a Cassowary

Australia puts 300 sharks on Twitter

Neil of Qld

Go swimming sometimes

Not worried about sharks

I am worried about drunken morons in boats and jet-skis

Not to mention the road trip home.

Why a plain packaging U-turn from UK.gov could cost £3bn a year

Neil of Qld

Most of the smokers I know who purchased cheap illegal tobacco did so because it was cheap not because of the packaging laws.

The survey was paid for by tobacco companies who claim that plain packaging will not work.

This is why they have spent millions trying to stop it

Use your loaf, Europe! Eat more fibre - high-speed web lobbyists

Neil of Qld

Sad that half of you seem scared of. FTTH.

Try a NBN

Half the politicians here in Australia get it .The rest are opposed on political grounds secretly some of them also want it.

The secret to its success was not to let Telstra ( Australia's answer to BT )have anything to do with it.

Technology, bushfires and AM radio

Neil of Qld

If you live in the bush you should know the evacuation areas ahead of time. Visit your local SES or fire brigade,.

Local councils may be a good idea depending on the IQ of the front desk people.

Assuming the local council even has a disaster plan.

Social media will fail due to the number of morons who crap up everything. Look at any discussion on any social media site for the evidence.

Google defamed Australian man with links to gangster

Re: Hope this holds up.

Best way to stop this is not fines or adding to the cost of operating a search engine it is throw the senior executives in jail for a time.

They will quickly find ways of protecting peoples data and protecting reputations.

Whinging Brits reflect on epic Oz road trip

Neil of Qld

Of course the classic whinging pom insists on telling everyone how cheap, clean and friendly London is. Seriously they do, it really annoys every other British person in Australia.

Hint on outback adventures you don't get all the modern conveniences you expect in a large city.

The restrictions on alcohol are due to severe alcohol problems in the Territory. I think asking an obviously adult for ID was a piss take.
