    Meanwhile, doing our taxes at the moment, and my wife paid over 10 grand in student loan INTEREST last year. I don’t even want to know how much she’s paid overall, and that’s just the interest. What a ****ed up system.

    My dad encountered someone today about my age who can't read or write at all. He never even learned how to write his own name. I know there's still some illiteracy in America yet it still amazes me.

    Jeff , the more I learn about USA the more I think your Government is screwing you all . our Government student loans have a very low interest rate . also you don`t start paying back any money until you reach about an income of about $54,000 . most degrees in Australia cost between $5,000- $15,000 a year , overseas students pay a lot more . I feel for you all my friend.

    Jeff it`s $42,000 now for when you start paying . doctors , vets and dentistry are roughly the highest cost of degrees , it ranges from total cost of $110,000 - $150,000 and that`s Aust $ .

    Thank you my friend. These are federal loans too. Her private loans have a much lower interest rate. So yeah, it’s pretty backwards and demoralizing.

    Also sad to hear about the shooting.

    Jeff here if your a student , you receive Austudy which is about $430 a fortnight and you can earn the same amount working part time , if you go over , you start getting a deduction . also if your renting you get about $150 a fortnight for rent assistance . certain things are means tested , this is for a single person . for couples that are studying there are certain allowance . we also have a disability allowance which is $916 a fortnight the same as the pensioners get . also we have the N.D.I.S. ( national disability insurance scheme ) which has packages for your needs . also your scripts for medicine are only $6.50 that are on the PBS , which most are on it . the PBS has drugs from blood pressure tablets to drugs for cancer which are about $350,000.

    well done to our Kiwi cousins , it took them by both sides of Government only 3 days to agree to similar gun laws as us , they beat us by 9 days . I believe they are they handing guns in already .

    Last full moon of the winter is a worm moon. I have no clue why. So many goofy moon names. Good thing we only have 1 moon.

    My yard is all mud. Must be plenty of worms. I guess it makes sense. Still weird. Let’s collect the worms and go fishing.
