"80% of people who were more than 65 years old and collected an aged pension also held $1m in assets"

Is this stat for real? If so, then this is clearly where savings in the budget need to be coming from!

I do not agree with raising the pension age, but assets being ignored in pension test is just leaving the system open to rorts.

I created this chart which compares the effective assets allowed if you're a median homeowner in Melbourne vs if you're not a homeowner - it's quite startling actually and kind of highlights the problem we now have http://i.imgur.com/2VXkYyE.png

Holy moly. If he’s reality-illiterate enough to repeatedly mis-represent carbon to the Australian public as a weightless substance, then he should be fully supporting carbon prices that are paid per tonne and therefore always zero. No wonder he’s such an avid cyclist, with all that weightless air giving him no wind resistance. Or has he just been living in his own policy vacuum for too long...

"the treasurer said the cabinet was not in the business of giving taxpayers’ money to private enterprises."

Unless of course that private enterprise is a school.

Just randomly came across Ben Nevis in the middle of the North Sea on Google Maps.

Mucking around with animating SVG using CSS. The result is now our logo is animated on our home page when you hover over it.

Pretty happy with the result. What do you reckon?

Story
Tagline
I'm your nemesis. You should keep tabs on me.
Introduction
I'm one of the co-founders of +Travellerspoint, an online community of over half a million travellers. I'm half Dutch, half American, was born in the Solomon Islands, moved to the Netherlands when I was 10 and then to Australia when I was 17. I have been living in Melbourne since then.

Since 2002, I've been running Travellerspoint with my brother Sam, who lives in Oslo.

Here's some ideas for the kinds of circles you might add me to: #Travel, #Melbourne, #ColdFusion, #Interwebs, #Gardeners, #Artists, #Entrepreneurs, #Photographers, #Superheroes, #Goodlooking People, etc.

All I ask is that you don't add me to a Circle full of annoying people whose company I would not like.

I run a few pages here on Google+ 

+Travellerspoint - if you're a member of the site, please circle it!

+Gardening - posting lots of fun gardening ideas. If you're into gardening, this is definitely a good page to add to your circles

And I set up this Travel community as well which I welcome you to join!
