Why are some members of a TEAM paid more than others?
It would give anyone the irrits to know that the player beside you,
doing the SAME WORK, is paid more.

Solution:  Salary cap divided by 13 (or however many ) equals no fines or loss of points.

Hugh knows, just like every other Aussie, that's how you spread it.  It's actually pretty good, not an acquired taste.  Even our fussy kids eat it.  You don't spread it on thick unless you know exactly what you're doing and are hardcore ;).

+da Vincenzo "Why should Australia and it's citizens bear the social and financial costs"

Because if you don't do it now, it's going to get worse, and you'll get so much people coming over here you won't be able to stop them. First they'll forcibly settle themselves in Indonesia. That will piss off and upset "TEH MUSLIMS" that you're so scared of and hate so much and they'll begin mass migrations here.

Interestingly, the Egyptian empire was almost brought to its knees by the Sea Peoples. Nobody knows who they really are, but current hypotheses are that they were people displaced by fighting or natural disasters.

Australian Marriage Equality figures show that Parliament is on the brink of having enough support to legislate same-sex marriage, needing just four more votes to pass a bill in the House of Representatives.
Former deputy prime minister Wayne Swan has switched his position on same-sex marriage, conceding he was "wrong" to oppose it, as Federal Parliament moves to be less than a handful of votes away from backing the landmark reform.
