haha funny thing, I have gf who works at an organic market and she tried the seasponge tampon thing. She said it`s not bad, but all I can think about is coral somehow being lodged in there and scratching the beejesus out of my vag. I`d rather use one of those cup things.

Yeah but you have to be very careful, because they are not regulated the way US and Canada are. That means that they can skimp, or refuse care in the case of complications. They are not legally obligated to you in anyway. If you think that malpractice is a very real thing which it is, it`s not a thought in their minds there. You poor American bastards... Gotta hate privatized health care.

Actually, visiting the dentist/doctor in Mexico is a very great way of saving money and not retarded at all. Their offices are just as nice or even nicer than the ones in the US and half the amount of money. I don`t see anything retarded with that, that`s like calling the Mexican medical field retarded which is quite opposite.

Oh and for all the nay sayers about saving money. There is something to be said for being frugal. There`s more to be said about saving in large conceptually real amounts... if you reason that your saving 10cents, but never see the cumulative results, of course it won`t seem to work. If you put it somewhere where all the little 10 cent deposits you save can accumulate, then you will see the benefit.

I actually agree with the embalming one... it`s a bizarre and uniquely western practice to emblam, and open casket funerals are completely morbid. We turn our nose up at a lot of funeral practices around the world, but the western world just as morbid as any. Why fill a body full of chemicals and delay decomposition??? My family is more european. No funeral for my Oma... just a wake dinner type thing. My grandpa was cremated and buried in a wooden box after we fought with the funeral home..Aparently you can`t bury people in wooden boxes...???

Don`t worry Lion, you live on an isolated continent that no one wants to go to. Things will be fine for you, just learn to live like the Aborigines.

The way the article was written was funny.
i actually accidently came across a site the other day about reusable pads. i was looking up "moon phases" and this " moon goddess" thing came up and was based here in Vancouver. so i was like wtf and clicked and it tells you when u go camping u have to put them in ziplock baggies to bring home and wash so the bears dont come and kill you.

f ucking strange!

Well I guess you Yanks will rule the world then Neg, cause the only people who have guns in Oz are police and nutcases, you have to pass 3 million types of checks to get one and even then they want to know what you NEED it for. So us Aussies WILL be using rocks. On the other hand, we`ve no shortage of them with 83% of the country being desert.

If the ammunition Negative speaks of is rocks... and the device to launch the ammunition is a railgun... he`s onto something

o_O... in some African nations the inflation of $$ is so out of whack due to the darker skinned people kicking out English caucasian farmers. The blacks in the country are trading GOLD they pan for rivers for bread.

So to any of you who think they have it bad during this global economic recession... remember... a guy in Africa has it worse off than you :).

If the "rot" method isn`t up your alley, try cremation. The key is to going directly through the crematorium. Skip the funeral home, they charge for every little thing they do, including transporting the body. And if you really *must* go the traditional embalming route, save money by getting your casket through a casket business *not* the funeral home. A friend of my in-laws owns a business selling caskets and they don`t charge you out the rear for one.
The more you know!

Money will be useless soon enough. Then where will you all be? Your useless money unreachable. Ammunition will be the new currency.

I don`t get why middle class people are so concerned about saving money, its not like they can`t buy gasoline or food (like REAL impoverished people). Economic theory just says spend your damn money regardless of business cycle. In English: recession do not last forever, and neither do booms. So just spend and don`t be sorry about it! That`s how you get out of a recession anyway. These retarded `save money` tips just complicate the problem.

SuperSmash like I said, it`s not any more gross than reusing your underwear. They work the same as cloth diapers (with less mess), just wash them without any other clothes in the wash and it`s clean. It saves a ton of money, you`ll (well not you, you`re a guy) never run out at the worst possible time, and it`s better for the environment.

Unless your a sports fan, you can find everything else online

Here`s a real tip:

Cut outside food from your routine. No fast food, no restaurants. You`ll see a major difference.

Number 1 would work better if it was just throwing the dead body in the forest. Saves a lot of money on the funeral.

The reusable pads are normally called cloth pads and work similarly to cloth diapers. They`re much more eco-friendly and they`re not any more disgusting than reusing your underwear after you wash it. I plan to use those when I move out. Plus side is they seem to stay in place better than normal pads and normally have cute designs xD

I`ve done the sleeping in airports thing. It often makes a lot of sense. If you`ve got a 6:30 am flight, you gotta check in at half four in the bleedin` morning, so you might as well say bollox to it and catch a few zzz`s on an airport bench as you won`t get a decent night`s snoozing anyway as you`ll have to be up so ridiculously early. I`ve even contributed to that website. Singapore airport`s got a great sushi bar landside with very comfy leather seats. You just have to glare at all the students nicking all the seats elsewhere as they study through the night. Why DO Singapore students do that by the way?
