Australian Oddities

The bizarre and the interesting of the Australian way of life.

1. They have no 1 or 2 cent coins anymore. All goods and services are still priced $9.99 and the like, but at the end of the transaction if paying by cash the amount gets rounded up or down.

Altogether a good idea, gets rid of excess shrapnel from your boardies, but why not go the whole hog and just round everything to either 95 cents or a round dollar???
