    Then there is the wildlife - saltwater crocodiles, box jellyfish, the top 3 deadliest snakes in the world and so on, all in Darwin suburban life. Not unusual for the saltwater crocodiles to have a wander into town or maybe hangout around the town wharf for a toddler to drop in. Yet the locals are just so blase about it all. So alcohol definitely helps.

    I mean, why would you go swimming? But the locals do!

    Luckily there are no sharks - the crocodiles ate them all.

    So I am really surprised that they use toilet paper there? Sandpaper maybe. Tree bark?

    That explains the name "Darwin". Sounds like a truth-in-advertising sort of deal.


    The thing I don't understand about the panic-buying of toilet paper is, why are none of the stores out of hand soap? As soon as I finish with the TP, I go for the hand soap every time. It's a one-for-one.

    We have one of those Japan-style ones, where the top of the toilet tank is a sink. After a flush, you just wash your hands using the same water refilling the tank.

    This is a fun take on the CV, beware it does have some F bombs in it.
