How, pray tell, are we going to mine one of those? Would it really kill the editors to run things through a spell checker? Would it, really?
Very interesting, and definitely worth a watch if you have a spare 15 mins.
Meanwhile the 'Voldemort Tax' you mention isn't to stop complaints about the Carbon Tax, but rather to stop business jacking up prices unfairly, and then falsely blaming it on the Carbon Tax. If their prices do need to increase due to the tax, then they are allowed to state this: http://www.accc.gov.au/content/index.phtml/itemId/1039037
I mean, Elephants are f***ing awesome and all, big, giant things that knock over trees when they get mad, but goats are well proven to eat grass and other things (like briers) that most animals won't touch. They handle dry, arid climates well, and provide other useful things like, Milk, Cheese, Meat, and Pelts. If you pick angora goats you get fancy wool from them as well.
Been there, done that they went feral : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Feral_goats_in_Australia. Though some farmers to make a fair living off mustering the ferals and then selling them for pelts and meat.
Considering how small their population is (~10M IIRC), that must not be very much oil.
Almost 23M (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographics_of_Australia), and apparently we use 946,300 barrels per day (http://www.indexmundi.com/map/?v=91) making us the 19th highest user in the world.
It's probably a wash, actually. Credit card charges will probably cost them as much as mailing that paper, which would be paid by check instead of credit card, usually.
Not necessarily - I work for a fairly large org (9000+ employees), and our bank charges us enough to deposit cheques that for payments under ~$100 it's actually cheaper to accept the credit card charge.
