Gumtree gold

Comment I Made 14 days ago

Not to say that convo doesn't happen, but I think couchsurfing is a bit different in that it's not usually a medium for advertising paid accommodation like gumtree is - it's explicitly supposed to be for people to stay at people's homes for 'free' by contributing to the community of couchsurfers.

I wouldn't say it makes one jaded, I mean, haven't 99% of relationships throughout human history been an overt exchange of material resources for sex? Love or attraction didn't really play much of a part.

Ah yeah was implied in the ad, but amazinglyblended said he told him/her it was sex for rent. I think the 'female only' and 'free rent' would probably be enough for anyone to put 2 and 2 together.

Exchanging resources/money for sex doesn't make you a serial killer or rapist. It's not like he's preying on anyone, he's being honest that it's sex for rent. There are websites like Seeking Arrangement and stuff like that where this is goes on. It's not illegal.

Thanks, I think I get it now


Tax Returns

Comment I Made about 1 month ago

Looks like it was both the medicare levy and the new job. I don't really understand it though, so let's say you earn $1000 a week, and at that salary you pay $100 of tax. So for the period you are earning $1000 a week, you have paid the correct amount of tax. Then, you get a new job, $1500 a week, and you pay $200 in tax per week. Shouldn't that mean for both those periods you have paid the correct amount of tax according to the money you have earned and therefore not having to pay any tax at the end of it since you have been taxed correctly for each period?

I'm sure I've missed something here.

That could be it, I got a new job with higher wages in March. That's only 3 months though. I though they just charged you the correct rate of tax per salary?

I mean, if that's what I owe that's what I owe, just the last couple of years I got like a grand back, a nice little gift to help get you through winter.

Did my tax through the new MyTax thing. Calculates my return. I have to pay the ATO 200 bucks. What the hell??? I have never had to pay tax before. Always been a normal employee. It said ''this includes a HELP repayment of $xxxx'' whatever it was, but I have a normal salary, with Pay As You Go, and have been paying my HELP in each salary tax deduction!

Could the automatic calculation thing have made a mistake and when it's finalised it will be different?

Are these owned by private companies or on public land?

but where are the pine plantations? I found one near macedon, but as you say the trees were pretty tall and it was quite dank in there.

Sting: where's a good place to go for slippery jacks and pine mushies? I only go rarely and usually just spend the day walking without finding anything.
