You might also ask any young tourist in Thailand, NewZealand or probably anywhere else who has shared space with young Israelis just out from their military service what their general attitude toward others is like.

Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac considers the feasibility of love with men, and whether heterosexual fucking – or abjuring it – can be women’s self-propulsion into the making of history

Yes, well, so much for "the science". I'll go with my intuition: This salty smelling liquid can be sprayed on "weeds" (a plant who's virtues I don't yet recognise) and that plant dies. That probably has adverse affects on a whole number of things I don't yet recognise.

Increasingly, America, Britain and even Australia are relying on ‘private security contractors’ to fight their wars. It’s a multi-billion dollar industry, but it’s also largely unregulated. Are we headed towards a world where armies and navies are available to the highest bidder? Antony Funnell investigates.

Had a nice drive through the Dandenongs out to Gembrook, down into Bunyip and a loop around. Would be nice to camp by some water, but I suppose it would get ruined. Quite scenic area. Four Brothers Rocks was nice.

Checked website, not to mention this Google profile, and there's no mention of being closed over Easter. Not just the Friday and Monday either, but they took the Saturday and Sunday too. Days they're normally open for a few hours, and not public holidays. I've come to realise their opening hours are not useful for people who only have time to access and move stuff "after hours". If that's you, then find a place that is open for your convenience. Here we stand, in the car park, all ready for a big move, looking at a sign that they should have put on their website.

If you think $150 per hour is a fair charge, and you can expect the mechanics get less than $30, then this is the centre for you. Note: they don't take Motorpass, nor do they think to order in obvious parts when booking the service - meaning you'll have to come back.

Stylish, moody little arts bar with quality food and drinks, and innovative decor.

Centrally located, very tidy and exceptionally helpful staff. We stayed in room 202 for a week with 2 little kids. 202 is a very spacious, quiet and comfortable aircon room with a king bed, a single and a fold out single, fresh linen every day, a clean bathroom, minifridge, tv and good wifi (after rebooting the modem outside the door). Breakfasts are lovely. Charming decor and attractive wall art. A refuge.
