I just had a pretty good interview Monday. And by pretty good, I mean great. Except that is a state government job which means I won't hear back on a hiring offer (if I get it) for another month minimum. Yeeeeeea, I can totally afford to twiddle my thumbs for a maybe.

Back to searching.


On another note, starting your own company is equally nerve wracking. Especially when you plan on using Kickstarter and you get put in charge of building the crowd/community interest in the project. Hey! I work in community management now! For free.... :P

I got my first unemployment check the other day and once had a girlfriend tell me she was pregnant to see what I would do. Needless to say, I did not appreciate that.

So, the first time you hit the Engage button, please tell me you pretended to be in a sci-fi scene.

Huh what?

We get Bushfires, Cyclones, Draught, Floods, Hailstorms (with hail as big as rugby balls :P), Tsumani's (yeah, we've had a few tsumani warnings go off here, tho luckily nothing bad came from them), heatwaves, and others... including idiotic tourist's :P

BTW Cyclones are basically beefed up Hurricanes :P

*cough*hurricanescyclonesandtyphoonsareregionalnamesbutarereallyexactlythesame*cough*

Your worst Cyclone ever killed 400 people (also the worst natural disaster in Australia). The US's worst hurricane on record killed over 8,000 and some estimates put it upwards of 12,000 (Galveston).

The worst flood in Australia killed 80, the worst in the US: 2000+. (The worst ever being in China at 1,000,000 good god)

0 Avalanches, Earthquakes, or Blizzards. Your heatwaves don't make the top 10 (the US has the honor of having 5 of them, more than anyone else).

Australia has one spot on the lists of 10 deadliest natural disasters for each disaster. The Black Saturday Brush fires took the 9th place with 173 deaths. Guess who took #1? The US, with a death toll in the thousands (along with taking 3 other spots on the list, more than anyone else).


Australia's natural disasters are a joke. Your animals might be trying to kill you, but that's about it.
