    I got one for ya! Here in the UK there's been a big scandal about expenses claimed by the members of our government. A huge outcry into the amount of taxpayers money being wrongfully or unfairly claimed by Members of Parliament led to a long investigation and audit. In the end, it was determined that the MP's had to repay a total of 1.2 million (about $1.85m US) to the taxpayer.

    The investigation/audit itself cost the taxpayer a little over 1.1 million.....

    I think this technology could be used for rapid deployment of supplies to a disaster zone, or be used by Fed Express to do International same day delivery!

    Yeah NSW. There are some areas of Sydney that have expanded recently and need a train line like North West Sydney.

    Hm, I do seem to remember the bus ride to Sony HQ in North Ryde was actually a total nightmare now you say it...
