    Nice photos Synapse, but you left out the cool ones . There's too many so I'll go best of each animal family. Most of them you don't see very often, but I've seen all but the Taipan at least once outside a zoo. Blue-ringed octopus is the only one that is common here in Victoria. My younger sister used to poke them with sticks to make them glow blue.


    Box Jellyfish (Chironex fleckeri) - Most lethal jellyfish in the world and one of the most dangerous animals in the world.




    Blue-Ringed Octopus - One of the most dangerous animals in the world.




    Inland Taipan - Most venomous land snake in the world.




    Marbled Cone Snail (Cone Shell) - 7th most poisonous animal in the world




    Synanceia (Stone Fish) - The most venomous fish in the world and one of the most dangerous animals in the world.




    Sydney Funnel-web Spider - One of the most dangerous spiders in the world.




    Estuarine Crocodile (saltwater crocodile) - Largest living reptile. 4-6 metres in length.




    Paralysis Tick - Releases a toxin slowly into host which causes paralysis

    Freude, schöner Götterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden Brüder, Wo dein sanfter Flügel weilt.

    I think of the Aussie Democrats every time I buy fresh fruit and vegetables because they made sure there is no Goods and Services Tax (GST) on fresh fruit and vegetables.

    At the moment my favourite is papaya with fresh passionfruit and lime juice.

    And when I am feeling particularly grateful to the Democrats, I add a dash of vodka.

    Yeah, i liked their slogan - 'keeping the bastards honest'. They did good in the Senate. Tis a shame they died off, hopefully there'll be some kind of resurgence in the future.

    And your little cocktail recipe sounds quite refreshing too.

    Yeah, it's amazing - they shot themselves in the foot.

    We do of course have a two party system. One the party of business and one the party of the unions.

    So there is a no chance a small party will ever take government. So we have a stable system and small parties can play a spoiling role like the DLP, but they come and go.

    And yes I find the freshly squeezed lime juice and passionfruit lift the papaya or paw paw to something special, with vodka only on very special occasions.

    Used to be the case, there was clear distinction between blue collar and white collar, can't see it there anymore.

    Sure, they say the Labor Party has been taken over by the dregs of the middle class. And there is a sliver of truth in this. However the Labor Party was founded by the Unions and the Unions still have enormous sway.

    However from my point of view it seems that as we became more prosperous, the blue collar families moved up into white collar families but still kept their political allegiance to the Labor Party. And so it looks like the middle class have taken over Labor.

    And this was compounded by Prime Minister Howard of the Liberal Party successfully appealing to the votes of aspirational blue collars. But it seems to me that these same blue collars are now migrating back to Labor. I mean our Labor Prime Minister is very popular.

    I think it is probably fair to say that the Labor Party, one of the oldest political parties in the world, is a social democratic party backed by the Unions - and yes, you are right Trinity, also by the white collar Unions.

    And there are now two of you in South Australia. But why are there so many in Victoria? And why is there only one of us in the Capital Territory? - 'Cause the rest are too busy running the country and all they could spare was me.

    The socialists get shut down in Labour these days. Hawke and Keating moved the party to the Right... so now we have a two party system with one full conservative and one centre right party.
    Kevin's obviously more moderate than Howard, he has to be, taking into account the history of the ALP.

    Any thoughts on the National Party as a Conservative Rural Party? I had to write an assignment on it for my politics class this semester.
    Would you say it still exists as a seperate entity, or is more the rural faction of the Liberals?
