    @Adam It’s incredibly incongruous to claim one thing is ‘behind the times’ whilst using the term now-antiquated term ‘retard’ don’t you think?

    As for the allegations of being ‘behind the times’, I refer you to the Human Development Index by the United Nations (Link: where Australia is listed as #2 overall in 2009.
