    The IPCC don't produce data, they assess it. The IPCC findings are also reviewed by various scentific bodies, and submissions and corrections can be made which if found to be valid, are adopted in subsequent assessments. It's all out in the open. Given that, if you for example, had some...

    Rain, hail and shine. I hope that helps. Which of course it doesn't, just like your observations don't. After all this and you were yet to look up a definition of what you were disagreeing with? I expect wikipedia gave you enough concrete examples? There's plenty of evidence of climate...

    You're basing your opinion on anecdotal evidence gathered from your window, and a guy from an internet forum who reckons stuff just like you, and telling people to beware of peer reviewed science upon which close to 100% of the science community agree with. No wonder you're having fun, you're...

    You don't understand it, so how can it be true? Surely that's not what you're saying is it? How much is a "gabillion" by the way?

    Did you get any help from your Mum? A lot of kids out there don't right? And chances are, they're not pulling themselves up by the bootstraps, so the question becomes, how do we help those kids less fortunate than yours? If at all. You seem to be in the "we don't" camp, but that's not a...

    So you do want to help the disadvantaged, ok that's progress, but why only the Australian ones? As for your "working poor" I think we've established that these people are not necessarily disadvantaged. I get that you don't like whinging dole bludgers. Let's leave them out of the discussion.

    So you're saying you're quite comfortable with the current level of disadvantage in Australia, that however slim it may be, there is still a chance of success, so maybe they just need to put in a bit more effort? That's a pretty extreme view. Why is that you feel more entitled to succeed...

    You've missed the point entirely. Disadvantaged means having less chance of success than others. You're talking about people with the same level of advantage, making different decisions.

    That's a big area, care to narrow down your requirements a little? Regardless, personally I wouldn't expect any growth in that timeframe. I think you would need to be a bit creative as opposed to buying and holding.

    Are you talking about 181 Walcott? I'd be very interested to know more about this as I own an adjoining property. Do you know how many apts and how many stories they're looking at? Timeframes etc?

    I agree. The original application was for a small bar and cafe, not sure why that fell through but now it looks like it will be all residential. Commercial has always struggled that far from Beaufort but I think resi will be fine. It's a 5-10 min walk to Beaufort. I wouldn't want to live on...
