I've been in Australia for a few days now and one thing I've noticed is that almost everything seems backwards here. The water goes down the drain the clockwise. People drive and walk on the
wrong different side of the road (my wife has been right to remind me that there's no definitive way these things should be done). I even struggled with a zipper for five minutes because I didn't realize that the "inserty" part was on the opposite side. (You might want to remember this before acting on anything I say.)
However, despite all the opposites, I was amazed to read that things are surprisingly the same. It's interesting that Australia's Reserve Bank Chairman, Glenn Stevens, seems has the same problems as Ben Bernanke - not knowing what to do with the interest rate as it balances recession and inflation worries.
I think I need to make a return back to the United States as soon as possible. The world of opposites is tearing the fabric of the world apart. Britney Spears looks hot at the VMA awards and Tom Brady is injured for the season. I'm spending the rest of my day simply just shaking my head.
