    Potentially, it could be worse than a hung parliament, if nothing can get through the senate :S

    Rudd vAbbott

    I saw the ALP how to vote guy and a Lib how to vote girl majorly flirting with each other. Was great to see considering it's been such a nasty 3 years, which btw I blame entirely on Abbott. Not even the party, just him personally. Libs should do well in govt I think , but somehow I'm...

    South Toowoomba - is this a good invesment

    Give me any street, any house and i'll tell you if it's a good buy ;) $325 for a townhouse in Sth Twba seems dear to me and risky as an OTP. Btw, middle eastern students like - no i should say feel entitled to - a brand new house near the uni and will pay good money for it, but won't exactly...

    At what age do you plan to be financially free?

    I'm 19 aiming to be financially free before 30. I suspect this may be achieved from my business ventures more than property. Very hard to plan for though. Flying blind starting a business for the first time is crazy!

    17 yr old car 140,000 kms Versus investing

    To add my 2c worth.. Just need to look at it from a numbers pov. If the cost to maintain it is going to exceed the cost of upgrading, then you should upgrade. That rules out getting a new car so why not compromise and save up and get a $5k 10yo car as suggested? I was in this situation...
