A mild weather wise yesterday brought out the loonies from over the back fence alias another Barry Dogs head Melbourne Cup gathering all mouthing off while swilling their charred barbecued steaks and sangers down with copious amounts of home brew or moonshine.
I am not sorry the greedy trainer with the trademark eyebrows failed in his attempt to win his 13TH Cup, instead from what I can gather a yank horse was the bolter with a Frog coxswain at the tiller..Any way who cares, apart from the employers who will be deluged with sickies today.
I am a fortunate person who only uses a Debit Card with no indebtedness, unlike the persons in over sized homes on Struggle Street today slugged with higher interest rates in order to boost the $12 million per ann salary of the CEO of the Commonwealth Bank. It's a shame the old style bank robberies have gone out of fashion. secretly I was always disappointed when the swashbuckling robbers got caught, now the hype has gone and we are now becoming used to the swaggering inside jobs by those who are entrusted with our hard earned, It might help to know I have stabbed the picture of the Comm/Bank CEO, with a bread knife.
There were many failures contesting the Mathematical problem posted three days ago.. several (4) failed to give the reason for their answers, (no workings) However we have an outright winner, an old friend of mine, A clever dick, who you may remember once edited one of my posts the cocky sod. which unfortunately created a war of words but hopefully now forgotten.
The winner is Andrew Burt, Esq. IMS. Who States.....
More like a problem for Math enthusiasts.
However this is a very straightforward and easy calculation.
once one understands that a US Gallon and a Pound weight both have 16 ounces.
Whereas the Brits (Bless their silly confused minds) have decided that a pound
and a gallon will have a different weight, to confuse all the school children
Thus a US Gallon is has / is 3785.412cc
meaning 3.785412 Litres
An Imperial Gallon has / is 4546.092cc
meaning 4.546092 Litres
So: If the UK Motorist is paying (the equivalent of) USD 3.25 per Gallon
then $3.25 / 4.546092 = $0.7148997 or rounded off to 71 cents per Litre
In Sydney Australia at (the equivalent of) USD 0.75 per Litre (we are paying 4 cents more than the UK motorist)
Whilst in the USA @ USD 2.99 per Gallon = $2.99 / 3.785412 Litres = $0.79 per Litre
PAYING MOST US Motorists @ 79 cents per Litre
AU Motorists @ 75 cents per Litre
PAYING LEAST UK Motorists @ 71 cents per Litre
IMS B.eng Electronics. (member IEEE)
(Where Math is critical in Electronics & Chemistry alike because one is working with nuclear principles)
i.e. Electrons, Neutrons, Protons, Photons, Ions, and Atomic Particle Theory. - without it Electronics does not work.
And having worked in the Petro-Chemical Industry for 8 years the problem does not exist.
Good luck to everyone else.

Here is a Math problem for Motor Enthusiasts, I shall publish the names of those up to the task.
During a industrial strike in the USA Gas (Petrol) rose to U/S $2..99 per Gallon
While in England The motorist was paying The equivalent in pounds to U/S $3..25 per Gallon.
While in Sydney Australia Locals were paying the equivalent U/S $ 0..75. per litre.
Explain giving detail who was paying most and who was paying least.
