Apropos, negative nancy as usual.

Jaypee, you're not much better but your footy team sucks ass at the moment so I can understand.

Plenty of early 20's uni students I know spend their youth allowance every Saturday night on piss, pills and all sorts of other stuff that destroys their brain cells, a pair of shoes isn't so bad in comparison.

Sorry HC, but if I don't agree with something i'll go out and say it.. if you want to sit on the fence for the sake of your business, i understand that

Student allowance is meant to help with the basics while studying as you don't have the time to work.. Its not meant to be spent of luxury shoes..

Worse still, I pay for it..

To be frank, when I was a student at uni I was spending my youth allowance on going out, food, drinks and sometimes the odd selfie present like a MacBook. So I totally have no issues with what oli is doing now that I work full time and take a $1000 tax hit each month. At least he is spending it on augmenting his #menswear game rather than injecting trip juice. Y'all gotta make the most outta that hustle life to get educated and also obtain swag.

Are you incapable of understanding English?

 

There's a difference between the point you're trying to make, and someone being afforded an allowance because he falls within the relevant criteria.  Saying that he is 'entitled' to an allowance is perfectly acceptable, and doesn't imply anything other than that he falls within the eligibility criteria for doing so.

 

It's a moot point really, because it's his money and he can spend it however the fuck he wants.

 

I bet you're voting for Abbot because we need to "stop the boats" or because the government's "ruined our economy" or some tripe bullshit along those lines.

I didn't think you were eligible for the Youth Allowance if you were pursuing a second degree? Or maybe I don't know what I am talking about.

apropos - why do you not answer the phone mate?

You need to prove that you are meeting full time study load I think

I'd have thought the NAD was worth it.

The NAD C356BEE is a very very nice amp.

I keep my fingers crossed with my amps - been going for years now with no problems

You are allowed Masters level courses. Not PhD though. Poor struggling researchers.

They can also have various degrees of aesthetic appeal.

This is so true. I had a friend who heard the power of compound interest, and he had also heard that shoes are a good investment (probably from style forum or some other site). So he put two and two and spent most of his money on shoes, including like cordovan and loafers and other superfluous shit. In fact I'm not sure if he actually geared it up drawing from his mortgage? Anyways, recently the economic client in certain engineering sectors have slowed and he got laid off. Needless to say he is deep in the red with debt and his so called "investment footwear" are worth cents in the dollar. Had I met him earlier I would have given him the same advice as fxh above.

This just goes to show, don't listen to idiots on the internet or old men in guitar shops.

This is about the dumbest trio of lines that's populated the forum this year.

 

The simplification that you're using to grant you the self-righteousness required to be a bumbling ass is fucking abysmal.

Jaypee, what exactly don't you understand? 

 

You pay $250 a fortnight so that people can do post grad courses like engineering, commerce, medicine and law. Some of them will spend it on alcohol, smokes, and shoes (as much as $125 a week gets you after fuel, food, rego, uni books, computers etc).

You then get the ability to tax those people in the highest tax bracket for the rest of their lives. This isn't including feeding big/small business more than they likely could without a qualification.

 

If you think that everyone out there can be a Richard Branson or that somehow working your way part time through an 5 or 8 year degree is realistic (brb, applying as a 35 year old clerk) then click your heels again, Dorothy.
