Yes, that's right, I have a working holiday visa.

Why Australia Day Can F*** Off

It shows a staggering level of disregard for the indigenous population. We committed genocide. Probably best not to rub it in.

Doing what I do for a living, I spend my waking hours weighing up the potential of misadventure against the likelihood, the steps you need to take to minimize danger against the worst possible outcome.
