Thanks, I think I get it now


Tax Returns

Comment I Made 14 days ago

Looks like it was both the medicare levy and the new job. I don't really understand it though, so let's say you earn $1000 a week, and at that salary you pay $100 of tax. So for the period you are earning $1000 a week, you have paid the correct amount of tax. Then, you get a new job, $1500 a week, and you pay $200 in tax per week. Shouldn't that mean for both those periods you have paid the correct amount of tax according to the money you have earned and therefore not having to pay any tax at the end of it since you have been taxed correctly for each period?

I'm sure I've missed something here.

That could be it, I got a new job with higher wages in March. That's only 3 months though. I though they just charged you the correct rate of tax per salary?

I mean, if that's what I owe that's what I owe, just the last couple of years I got like a grand back, a nice little gift to help get you through winter.

Did my tax through the new MyTax thing. Calculates my return. I have to pay the ATO 200 bucks. What the hell??? I have never had to pay tax before. Always been a normal employee. It said ''this includes a HELP repayment of $xxxx'' whatever it was, but I have a normal salary, with Pay As You Go, and have been paying my HELP in each salary tax deduction!

Could the automatic calculation thing have made a mistake and when it's finalised it will be different?

Are these owned by private companies or on public land?

but where are the pine plantations? I found one near macedon, but as you say the trees were pretty tall and it was quite dank in there.

Sting: where's a good place to go for slippery jacks and pine mushies? I only go rarely and usually just spend the day walking without finding anything.


Better Call Saul

Comment I Made about 4 months ago

The Fly episode is supposed to be an allusion to Kafka's Metamorphosis - about a everyday guy who slowly turns into a fly. Thus the ''Kafkaesque'' from the previous episode. It's a comment on Walt's own transformation and his increasing alienation from society, his family and his own perspective of who he is.

I don't see this as any slower than Breaking Bad. Most of BB was ridiculously slow with sometimes 5 minute discussions, or longer, between just two characters.

It's different, but I like it. What I think made BB so special though was the relationship with Jesse and Walt. Perfect odd couple. That hasn't been replicated in BCS. It's kind of BB lite.

Also, I guess we found out in this latest episode that it isn't set in Albuquerque, New Mexico, since Mike said he wanted to go there.


M&N Sick Bay

I woke up on Thursday morning feeling OK after slogging through a cold for a week, then Friday / Saturday I felt shit in a whole new way. Like a cold again or something like it. Fuck off sickness!

High fever? Could be pneumonia, I'd get that checked. I've had it before, it happens when you try to push through a sickness, you get better for a day or two then bam. If when you breathe in and out you hear a 'crackling' sound, could be it.
