Posted:If you were a real hobbit those big feet would have hair.

Try eating lots of wasabi I have been told it clears the sinuses and makes you grow hair on your chest...then you can shave that off and super glue it to your feet.

hehehe

I think we have hijacked this thread....

Aren't you glad you live in this beautiful country!

Posted:ok, chemical industry in australia? pretty much everywhere.

it really depends on what industry your after - petrochemical? mining? pharmaceutical? food? chemicals? water? energy? environmental? nuclear?
do you really have a preference, and do you have any previous experience?

it also depends how far out from the major centre you wish to be. for instance there is a polyethylene plant 6km from the heart of sydney, and there are mining facilities 600km away from the next community.

a good resource for general information on the different industries available is at www.chemlink.com.au

if students have gone to exchange to australia before, maybe someone in your department at uni can help you with how previous students went?

im a chemical engineer working in the process control and instrumentation, and have a reasonable good idea on whats around, but it depends on what your after.

Posted:petrochemicals,pharmaceuticals,chemicals are my thing(inorganic and organic).
nobody else has been to australia from my uni thats my problem.have experience to the extent of lab experiments at a-level and uni.my year in industry is to get that experience.
i would preper places close to some sort of civilisation.6km from sydney sounds nice.
where do you work? which company?
do you have a GlaxoSmithKline out there?

Posted:What about last year wasn't there a flood then?

I know one of my friends went there last year and she was having lots of trouble with too much rain and some of the roads being totally washed out.

Rain? I haven't seen real rain in a long time. Every now and then it drizzles...does that count?

The only reason we some areas a little flooded is that there's poor drainage .

Posted:Hi Perth spinners,

I'm heading your way on Saturday with my girlfriend - Perth (or 'Pwerf" as she jokingly calls it) is her home town. Just there for a holiday but I'll attempt to make it along to one of the fire spinning meets as per listed in the "Meet Others" database. Would be quite good for me 'cause I have no one to spin with in my part of the world, I'm getting very, very stagnated. Not sure how I'll handle the heat though, anyone who has been to Southland in NZ will know just how different it is here. See ya next week (hopefully)

No we don't have a moonfest but we have other strange things going on around here like the Bathrobe conspiracy (only ask if you truly mean to understand this)...

Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and Better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
