we're the "dumb blonde" of the world, hey? I wonder what the Brits are? Whatever it is, I'd rather be a "dumb blonde"...

The "racial" violence against Indian students myth is revived again... I really must see this film. My many Indian friends agreed that it was a load of media bollocks.. and in all fairness, the attacks were committed not because a student was Indian, but because a student was in a vulnerable position. Indian students, more so than Chinese students and local students, more often find themselves in a vulnerable position, because of the (very independent) way they tend to live their lives in Australia (without a car, commuting alone and on public transport, working/studying evening-late hours, living in outer-suburbia).

So one of my bogan mates posted a complaint on the Things Bogans Like FB page. I am very conflicted, he's a nice bloke but it's an absurd thing to do. I think he found the site out through me, too.

Speaking of which, I love this. Excellent reading material (not one of my mates, luckily - found this guy on a blog).




I particularly enjoy the name of the bloke who liked the first comment.

I had a nice laugh at that Aussie diver by the name of Jaele. What, as in jail? Her parents weren't confident about her future ...!

Porn laws confuse travellers

Porn laws confuse travellers
Georgina Robinson
October 18, 2010 - 6:35PM
Confused travellers unsure about what sort of porn they’re allowed to bring into Australia have prompted a re-working of incoming passenger cards.

Home Affairs Minister Brendan O’Connor said he had asked to change the wording on the declaration cards travellers must fill out when they fly into Australia.

“The previous card stated that travellers needed to disclose any ‘pornography’ they were carrying,’’ Mr O’Connor said.

‘‘That has now been amended to read ‘illegal pornography’.’’

But with no further advice on hand about what constitutes ‘‘illegal pornography’’, travellers may be forced to run their selection by a Customs officer.

“My advice to travellers is that if you’re in doubt – find out,’’ Mr O’Connor said.

‘‘Customs officers operate with discretion and the penalties for failing to declare a prohibited import are steep.”

Prohibited pornography includes child pornography and material depicting bestiality, explicit sexual violence, degradation, cruelty and non-consensual sex, a statement from the Minister said.

Last financial year half of the 1300 instances of prohibited or restricted material Customs detected was brought in by passengers entering Australia.

A fine of up to $11,000 applies if travellers are caught making a false or misleading statement to a Customs officer.

Bringing child pornography into Australia can result in a fine of up to $275,000 and a maximum of 10 years in jail.

An express reference to pornography was added to the card in late 2009 after a rise in detections of child abuse material and material that had not been classified or had been refused classification.

“Even though there have been import bans on illegal pornography for a long time, some travellers still don’t realise that,’’ Mr O’Connor said.

‘‘Highlighting it on the incoming passenger cards is aimed at raising public awareness and reducing attempted illegal imports.
phew, a worry off my mind!
