Indeed,I'm often working quite hard to put myself out of a job, a good reference means another contract.

I've seen this here in Oz, smarmy TV spokesdrones telling us that the volume is no higher during the ads, this is true, as they are discussing the peak value in decibels.
What they don't mention is the loudness (the amount of sound) has been cranked right up, which is why they are too "loud"
When we want to discuss loudness, they always come back with irrelevant facts about volume.
Yes what was Australasia is now Oceania.
But neither of those two words describe the Australian continent, which is called Australia.
The word Oceania describes a region of the Southern Pacific ocean
It's so simple.
Also When you say "our continent" what do you mean ?
The people who would call Australia "our continent" would be usually be Australians.
So wrong, and so confident.
Australia is both the name of a country and a continent.
Australasia is a term for the region, usually including New Zealand and other small Pacific countries.
Lots of penguins in Au and NZ as well.
Always the FUD before the FACTS, the Fear before the Data, the Restrictions before the Research.
Brilliant. Sums up the madness here in Oz as well.
It's a joke.
You can tell by the way they use proper sentences, correct grammar, spell words correctly, and are aware of the function of the caps lock.key.

Salt water is nasty, evil shit.

Nasty to our electro/mechanical inventions, but not evil.

Remember the yeast is making carbon dioxide from the vegetable matter it is eating, which was removed from the atmosphere months or years ago. Nothing to do with anthropogenic climate change that is all about releasing gases that have been locked out of the atmosphere for thousands or millions of years.
i.e. Spent my 20's....experimenting.
I'm not sure it was pissed away, as I did learn a lot that isn't really taught anywhere, and keeping your head, while all about you are losing theirs, is a excellent ability that I feel my life experiences has given me. Early 30's decided I needed more direction, and of course I wanted to earn more than unskilled pay.
Cisco certs were the answer for me, easier than a degree, but still requires a certain level of self discipline.
They gave me the leverage to enter the internetworking field, in my 30's, and now with a decade of experience, I still look fairly secure even in these tough times.
I don't even want to think about where I may be if I hadn't got those pieces of paper.
It's almost impossible that you will be facepalming "If only I didn't have that pesky degree", and almost certain that it will be an advantage.
The correct piece of paper, will open doors.
