i wouldn't advocate being on the dole...its an option, but only while trying to find something better. Some people treat it as a right though.
I'm in Bris about 3 times a year, we have family in Ipswitch too. I always look in Rockinghorse Records when in Bris! And that other record store abit down from there... i forget its name..the one where you have to go up the stairs.. its crazy! The thing i have trouble getting used to in Bris is the choice of venues in Fortitude Valley... alot of the action seems condensed there. The choice is good, but a little cluttered and boganish..maybe you can understand what i'm getting at..
ah. We jus call it, Welfare, food stamps, Disability, or Employment. They're all technically different things, but they all do the same thing.
And no shame, The United States, is a welfare state too, people are all for milking the government here.
oh and 2 make what i just said actually make sense.. we have whats called "medicare" which is almost like health insurance but its provided 2 everyone n lets u claim money back off the government just like u would an insurance company :)
i dont have either lol or, for that matter, any insurance of any kind ^_^
damn. That could really fuck you over if you don't have, or won't get the money in the future.
food stamps, well, basically, they're "stamps", kinda like coupons, i suppose you could say, but you apply for them, and if you don't make enough money, and based on the income you, and others living in your household receive, the government will issue you so much money that you can buy food with.
We also have medicare here, but you can't claim money off of it, it simply helps lower how much you'd have to pay for a doctor's visit, surgery, or the ER.
Yeah here it all has the fancy title of "Centrelink".
Most doctors are bulk billed here, so you don't pay anything for the doctors visit, the doctor claims the money direct from the government. I haven't payed for a doctors visit to date and the surgery I had was free - just that you have to wait in the queue for your turn.
They also have the "baby bonus" where you get paid to have a baby. $1000 hehh its often referred to as the "Plasma bonus" cos most people use the cash to buy a big screen TV! hahah..........
i forget what that store is called but i know the 1 u mean :) they hav records n tapes n hoodies n junk.. its awesome!
i go2 299 in the Valley.. its a metal club.. if u can call it that.. it has its moments :)
theres also Faith but the club it was in now hosts the things that use2b at 299. its all quite confusing. and theres Rosies but its more screamo n has way 2 many Hardcore Kids.. they stand around n try n look cool n never dance unless ther fight dancing. its lame -_- POSERS! haha
First of all, metalcore isn't hardcore.
Second of all, don't rip on hardcore kids, they will probably just punch you in the face.
Third, Fight dancing, hardcoredancing, moshing, fighting invisible ninjas whatever you want to call it, is fucking awesome and fun.
Stop calling people posers
metalcore/hardcore i dont know.. im not big on genres n i dont listen 2 either very regularly.
pretty sure were talkin bout different people here.. if uv been2 rosies then ud know what i mean. these guys arent really hardcore! they just stand around with there long fringes/long hair covering ther faces n ther caps on. which is pretty boring. n then they go n swing ther arms around while tryin really hard 2 not hit anyone or anything. basically there emos pretending 2 be hardcore.
iv got nothin against people fight dancing. i love it. it is awesome haha.
