Are you trying to say you're happy?

Or something else.

    Do you mean the girl on the bike looks like a 55 pic. ?

    Right. That pic is too perfect. Looks like one of those weird poloroid photo shoots.

        Haymaker, the previous poster was just trying to say "weird A$$" in an acceptable way. A "5" replaces "S"....get it?

        Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

        The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

            OUCH!   Eek     That probably translates to around $9/hr. here in the states.  What good is making $50/hr. if inflation is at 300%?

              THEY CLAIM INFLATION IS AROUND %3.5 aroundhere,and bank interest on savings is easily %5.5.  theres a good section in " a conneticut yankee in king arthurs court" where he tries hard to explain that higher wages mean nothing if you pay even higher pricesfor stuff. read that one in 20s.  always stuck with me, the inflation taxation.

               

              also remeber  1 aud being = to 1 usd is a new thing we where under ; way under,  par for a while.its not  inflation killing us, its cost of living.  oh and some of the most expensive  housing on the planet

                  After annual property taxes and general maintenance costs (figure minimum 1% of the house's value), why should anyone be impressed that she still works? Did I mention utilities?

                      Is their economy that good? $17 an hour packing books?? ( 1 USD is equivalent to 1 Australian Dollar). It must be a union job. Good for them.

                      I'm glad she seems sensible with the money but she should remember that the devil is in the details. That sudden fortunes change people bad.

                      Yea, actually Aussies didn't get hit as hard from 2008 forward like the US did because they are a commodity exporting country of the highest order.  Many valuble materials that you get out of the ground come from there, and being the main exporter of these things to the Chinese have them sitting pretty these days.

                      As far as money changing people for the bad, I think the main topic of the article is how this young lady is well aware of that, and her successful efforts to not let that happen to her.

                      Be sassy and be happy.

                        does that filter  <snip> that word also ?

                          LOL  Kind of funny really, when everyone knows exactly what you mean to say, even without the infamous <snip> flag.

                          Darn that <snip>, <snip>, <snip> thing anyways!

                              The photo does look like a stock photo that one would license.  If she did modeling, maybe it is part of her portfolio.
