Are they states in Australia too? I did a quick Google but didn't come up with the term for their divisions.

Yes, we have six states and several territories:

 

States: Queensland, New South Wales (NSW), Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia

Mainland Territories: Australian Capital Territory (ACT), Northern Territory

 

Both the ACT and Northern Territory have had attempts to becomes states, but failed. I'm not sure of the legal situation or complexities, but I remember the Northern Territory having a recent referendum on the subject and the attempt failed. While these two territories are really states for most practical purposes, they don't have all the legal rights of the states. It only happens rarely, but the federal government has the power to overrule territory legislation. The two times I can recall are when the Northern Territory passed voluntary euthanasia laws, and when the ACT passed same-sex civil union legislation.

 

We also have some non-mainland territories, but I can't remember them. The main one I know about is the Australian Antarctic Territory -- the biggest in Antarctica.

Unites States of Australia? :wacko: :D

 

Ok, the silliness had started and CJ can now officially release the next chapter! :D:P

What? And deprive us of our weekend fun? :P

 

Whoops...the secret is out. Here's the Aussiebum swimsuits that Helen has selected for Brandon's shoot at the pool. Let's see how he fills it out. http://www.aussiebum.com/. :P

Ah yes, some fine eye-candy there. :)

Hrmmmm, the ACT is roughly analogous to America's District of Columbia. (DC). However, The ACT is not limited to Canberra and its environs, but also includes Jervis Bay on the coast.

 

I suspect a conspiracy.

Oh, love the story CJ, only issue with it is waiting for the new chapter every week! Keep up the good work.

Enjoy the tales and tail chasing around here.

G'day, shadowfire. Greetings from Melbourne!

 

I agree with the waiting for the new chapters. If he didn't spend so much time blaming everything on Shadowgod, I'm sure he could increase his posting rate. :P

Just to be clear, you are referring to CJ's story posting and not his forum posting, since we all know the self-proclaimed title of lurker has no basis in reality! 0:)

Yes, see Graeme? I'm not the only one to acknowledge Shadowgod as the king: King of Eeeeevil Cliffhangers :king:

EMOE!!!!!!!!!!!! :o

 

How could you say such a thing? My own editor, tarnishing my precious reputation as a quiet and shy forum lurker... :ph34r:

I'm shocked, shocked I tell ya! :ph34r:

 

Yes, I meant his story posting rate. He wastes too much time posting in the forums and not writing. :wacko:

 

But, but, but, being a lurker, doesn't it follow that I spend almost no time posting in the forums? :sheep:

 

Uh oh, I feel a "shy, innocent, lurker :ph34r: " comment coming our way.
