    2 Australian women from an online mums forum show TeakDOOR how it is done...

    The doghouse is tame stuff by comparison with these mum-forum sheila's walkin the walk.

    A proper online shit-fight involves a meet-up, some spectators from the forum, a bashing, hospital and finally being charged with affray by police.

    Online argument ends in violence with two women charged with affray

    Police have charged two women from an online mothers' group after they allegedly got into a brawl over an online disagreement about the coronavirus.
    Key points:

    The pair argued about the coronavirus online before meeting up in Brookvale
    The women were treated in hospital for their injuries before being released
    A Facebook post about the incident on a local police page has since been deleted

    Police said the incident occurred on January 28 when two women decided to meet up in person after having a discussion in an online group chat.

    From the 'Only in Australia' File #001-11351118-3x2-700x467-jpg

    They allegedly became involved in a physical fight at Brookvale, with two other women from the group attempting to separate the pair.

    Police and NSW Ambulance paramedics attended the scene and both women, aged 33 and 36, were taken to Northern Beaches Hospital.

    The 36-year-old was treated for a head and shoulder injury and a cut to her arm, while the younger woman was treated for a sore shoulder and other non-life-threatening injuries.

    Last week, a post about the incident was shared on the Northern Beaches Police Area Command Facebook page.

    "It began with an argument between two women on a mothers' group chat site about the current coronavirus and its effects," the post began.

    "From there, the women … agreed to resolve their differences in person …"

    Not long after the ABC made inquiries about the post, it was deleted and police did not return calls.

    Both women have since been released from hospital and were yesterday charged with affray.

    They are due to appear in Manly Local Court on March 25.

    Y'know it's funny. Here in Oz I can freely read much more dirt on Thailand than you poor huddled masses ever can in Thailand. Unless you resort to sneaky means.
    But I can't get quite a few of your ónly in Oz' pics & videos here in Oz- not available in your country. go figure.
    Anyway, a Facebook site- "Shit Towns of Australia". It's gone quite viral- they've even published a book. Probably the funniest thing is the reactions of some of the shit town bogans. Check it out.

    I am still confused at what constitutes an aboriginal. Mundines father is part aboriginal and his mother is a white european which makes his ancestry predominantly white european.
    As far as I am aware as long as you have some member of your family with some aboriginal heritage no matter how small and you "identify" as an aboriginal, that allows you on to the aboriginal gravy train.

    Need to also show Alaska ... in total, my understanding that the USA is about 10% larger, in land mass then Australia.

    I hear the same thing about Maori in NZ, and I agree with some of it, but a large percentage of the Maori population sees very little, like here in Malaysia or Australia

    Nope, no blood line needs to be proved

    An Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander is a person of Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander descent who identifies as an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander and is accepted as such by the community in which he [or she] lives.

    Yes, roughly. By the same token the US has a population of 340 million and Oz has 26 million

    Unofficial quotas within government agencies ... the question is asked on almost every job application.

    As for benefits ... ABStudy comes to mind.

    The question is asked, yes. How many Aboriginals are hired? Calling something 'unofficial quota' is a bit disingenuous.

    I think some positive discrimination is acceptable, even necessary

    Baboons captured after running loose in Sydney's inner west
    February 25, 2020

    A male baboon on his way to a vasectomy managed to escape his transport with his two female companions and run amok on the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital campus on Tuesday afternoon.

    NSW Health Minister Brad Hazzard said the trio of baboons were arriving at the facility when the lock on their vehicle door failed.
