Who said students live tough?

To those students who whine about being poor poor poor, let me fill your heart with joy.
It was announced today that the average Australian income is $1,147.00. Let me reinforce that point, the AVERAGE income is $1,147.00.

Feel better?

Maybe that's the mean, but it's not the median. In case that makes you feel better at all.

Damn you with your wordy flim-flammery. I knew you were an instrument of 'the man'. The only thing that makes me feel better is knowing that one day we will defrost Lenin and he will rise and devour the capitalist monsters who leech upon the working class.
DOWN TOOLS AND UP ARMS!

That's...quite a lot of money, for weekly wages. How is this meant to make students feel better? (Perhaps I missed the sarcasm?)

Sarcasm missed. :D

Adam lives in a topsy turvy world where love is hate, puppies are kittens, and Sarah Palin is God.

Oooh, now I'm picturing a world run by MiniLuv, MiniPup and MiniPalin - the army would be made up of Palin clones and their many children, and the puppies would be shooting laser beams out of their eyes. Every day, people would be made to listen to Frankie Goes to Hollywood's "Relax" for two minutes.

You have clearly been reading my diary. Looks like my foil hat needs to be tightened another notch.
