Fuckin' Australia. The land where everything can kill you. Even the octopuses there have venom!

Yeah but noticeably absent gun violence and homelessness.

Umm, doesn't Australia actually have more homelessness than the US?

It’s different than the US. You don’t see huge homeless encampments. Well at least not around Melbourne anyway. There are however similar rates of what are considered homeless as In people with no fixed address. Having lived in the Bay Area and here I can tell you that our vulnerable people are far better looked after.

I mean yeah, you can't do much worse than the US. I was surprised about the numbers as well
