Stats, graphs, misc numbers on various countries - how do you rate?

http://www.nationmaster.com/graph-T/mil_exp_dol_fig_cap

that's military spending, but there's lists for sport, education, most gun related deaths, violence...it's pretty interesting.

"They" have put Australia in Oceania not Asia. I wish "someone" would make "some kinda" ruling that decides WHICH section Australia is part of.

People

Perth is generally an egalitarian and relaxed city which, although it has pockets of extreme wealth and poverty, is almost entirely middle class and suburban. The population is easy-going and friendly, but can be parochial, especially towards the "Eastern States" which are often viewed with deep suspicion.
So watch out Angie, Im suspicious of you

Quote:
The 90 year-old University of Western Australia in particular is renowned for its monumental neo-classical architecture.... Many of the buildings are constructed from limestone, including the enormous Winthrop Hall with its Romanesque architecture.
(My workplace) Its Tuscan actually, and its a fire hazard. And the Union guy slammed his fingernail in the big stupid door and had to release the blood pressure by stabbing himself with a hot paper clip.



Better stop posting, lest people work out Im sitting in my suburban home, eating my middleclass Tic-Toc biscuits.

I guess you aren't big on rollmops in Canuck land
Eww. Its funny how Australia and The Netherlands are always so close in these kinds of comparisons. We're more conservative in a lot of areas, but Canberra's move toward being the capital of porn, pot and legalised explosives must make some kind of difference lol.
