Far out in the uncharted backwaters of the unfashionable end of the western spiral arm of the Galaxy lies a small unregarded yellow sun. Orbiting this at a distance of roughly ninety-two million miles is an utterly insignificant little blue green planet whose ape-descended life forms are so amazingly primitive that they still think digital watches are a pretty neat idea.

Burning some mod points to respond - I think if you read the opinion pages and editorials of The Age you would have a different view of them supporting the Mad Monk's government. They get accused pretty heavily of being left leaning Labour party supporters. It's Murdoch's Newscorp who are the rabid LNP supporters.

I used to do consulting for Xerox, it was fairly typical for hospitals to depreciate hardware (such as beds, autoclaves, photocopiers) over 20 years. You can't even get parts for copiers after that amount of time, you are generally relying on 3rd party refill kits for toner and other consumables. From memory 10 years was pretty standard for printers.
