Very curious if I can become more educated via lovely bubhub members.
I (out of habbit I guess) rely mainly on mass media to get my information about what's happening in the world.
Quite often I hear the other side of the story and realize how much the media can 'twist' things.
So do you know anything that many other people may not know?
Eg I hear surf lifesaving relies mainly on donations from the public and volunteers as the government subsidies they receive doesn't cover barely any of their cost.
Before we launch into how wrong this is in Australia, please remember this thread aim is to list anything you know about the real world that other mainstream people (like myself) may not know.
