Australian currency is awesome, for the following reasons: a. All the notes are different colours, making them easy to distinguish; b. All the notes are different sizes, making them easy to distinguish (ever been in an American nightclub trying to work out if that was a 10 or 20?) c. All the notes a...

Depends on your POV. I don't care, as it's more accurate to say it is in the harbour. Same thing as a boat that is on a body of water that is connected to an ocean - it is more accurate to say it is in a bay, inlet or whatever. You are in a resort, which is located in the desert. But if you're insid...
