    Does that incle accomadation for other people? Also how do we know that this island doesnt have some mestirious thing wrong with it and the only way to get someone to check it out is to not tell that somebody. Im willing to bet the person they pick will have have Spec Ops training and somekind of advanced combat technique.

    That doesn`t really sound like fun. I think i would get bored just staying on an island alone for half a year. You try to get to town and the people go " NO! Get back to your work!" "Nooooooooo" i yell as they drag me back to my big cozy beach house. " Its torture in there!" Seriously, i get bored really easily.

    I have never once in my life seen an actual dingo. I doubt you have anything to worry about.

    Still beats all these god damn koala`s.

    maromi, i doubt you have to try to blog.


    "weather nice. sand is warm against feet. soft breeze kisses skin. water clear. i saw a barraacuda while snorkling. it was awesome. the food is excellent. had roast duck with potatoes. yum yum. australians are nice people, very helpful."


    see? i can apply and already write the blogs i would post.
    unless australia doesnt have roast duck...

    Only bad thing about this job is how you know they are going to pick the eventual employee. Considering they are wanting you to post pictures and movies of yourself by the pool and walking along the sandy beach to promote tourism... how do you think they are going to want you to look. I`m saying pretty much model material or no job for you!! :-P I`m actually more interested in seeing who gets the job to see if i`m right in what i say.
