  1. That barrier is really really strange. Nice to see everyone making a party of it, having picnics and parties. Aussie ingenuity. How many leap over and join the other side.

    I suppose it works in general. You can’t drive through so there’s no big population change.


  2. This was really interesting and because you linked to ABC I started clicking their related links and got enjoyably lost in a Spanish flu rabbit hole
