Blackfella,we bin happy....

  • The original simple shelters of the aborigines, did not harbor vermin as the families would move on after a few days. The terrible housing allotted to Aborigines these days soon becomes infested and spreads disease.
An Aboriginal chain gang all women, about 1900, going to work at Wyndham, Western Australia. The guard is on the extreme right. imprisonment could result from leaving a designated place of work, having contact with a white man, or giving birth to a half-caste child, which would be taken from her and likely die of neglect.
*************************************************************************** We blackfella, we bin happy. We don't git no poisin in flour and sugar no more. Nobody shoot us too much. They give us vote, too. Gee, soon they gunna give us our country back, you t'ink? Not fuggin' likely mate!

And there are fairies at the bottom of my garden.

  • The First Astronaut and he could walk on water too! Jesus Christ the first Superman/ Batman and Robin combined.The Ascension by Brian Jekel
    There HE goes on his way, going up without a hot-air balloon or wings, not even a ladder. HE can do it because HE is the "SON OF GOD."............................................... It has always mystified me how HE could navigate, as going up would send HIM to some particular point among the stars (Heaven) somewhere near Paradise of the Moslems. ...........................................Since the world is round, going "up" from different points on earth, must aim towards different places. Ah well, maybe I am not supposed to figure that out. Asking such awkward questions at the Anglican school I attended found me sent to the detention room, where the only book was a bible. I used to turn to Leviticus straight away. A lot of good stuff there, mate.
Dr. Fredrick Töben, Director of Adelaide Institute and editor of Adelaide Institute Newsletter (Visiting Auschwitz). Historian Fredrick Toben was arrested in London and is being extradited to Germany to face five years in prison for doubting some facts about the Holocaust, (so-called.) This makes me very uneasy. I do not follow the Nazi doctrine or particularly hate Jews more than anyone else. I am unsure how many people were killed by the Nazis. It seems Toben's estimate is less than the World Jewish Congress has estimated. Even if one Jew was killed, that is a tragedy. One million or seven million, the horror is the same. The real scandal is that in the West only a handful of the murderers and torturers were ever brought to trial and far fewer received the death sentence. In this respect the Soviets did a more thorough job. The United States "denazified" many guilty Germans and took them to work in secret industries in America................................................................... The Jews who went to Israel in some respects became Nazi-like themselves in their treatment of the Palestinians, who had fought back against having their property and land "confiscated" by the Israelis. Maybe this Fredrick Toben is an idiot. Maybe he is a bigot, maybe a liar and worse...however I have not heard he has used force or violence. He has his opinion and it may be very wrong. But I would like to hear it as well as other sources, so that I can make up my own damn opinion. Sending this man to jail is suppression of freedom of speech. Now all my life I have been subjected to opinions as "truths" that Jesus Christ walked on water, rose from the dead, died for my sins. I consider that a bunch of crap. That is my opinion. In earlier ages I could have been burned at the stake for making such assumptions. However I do not want the local priest or minister sent to jail for making erroneous statements. No. Let them say whatever they want. Just make alternate information available. THAT IS THE NATURE OF ACQUIRING REAL KNOWLEDGE. (Ric) *********************************************************************************************** ****
Palestinians detained by Israeli security forces are routinely tortured and ill-treated, according to a new report published by Israeli human rights groups yesterday. The ill-treatment, which includes beatings, sensory deprivation, back-bending, back-stretching and other forms of physical abuse, contravenes international law and Israeli law, the report says.

The Centre for the Defence of the Individual and B'Tselem, an Israeli human rights group, compiled the report after interviewing 73 Palestinians who had been arrested in 2005 and 2006.

The report found that almost 50% of detainees who were arrested in raids or at random were beaten by the army or police before they were handed over to the Shin Bet security agency for interrogation. The prisoners were interrogated for an average of 35 days and spent most of their time in tiny cells in solitary confinement. They were interrogated from five to 10 hours a day. More than half did not see a lawyer or representative of the Red Cross for the whole period of interrogation.

The report found that prisoners were effectively starved by being offered food designed to appear rotten or unappetising. Their only exercise was the walk from the cell to the interrogation room during which they were shackled, handcuffed and blindfolded. In some cases more extreme treatment was used. One in five detainees were deprived of sleep for up to three days and a quarter were beaten by their interrogators.

Out of more than 500 complaints against Shin Bet since 2001, not a single one has been upheld. Israel's justice ministry said Shin Bet interrogations were carried out in accordance with the law, although it declined to comment ..... .*************************************************************************************************** How many Jews were murdered by the Nazis? I do not know. It could have been millions. It was a horrible ongoing series of events by a regime which had the support of the German people and Nation, the Third Reich. This is a mystery how a people the Germans who are intelligent, hardworking and good family people could do it. After all Jews are people too and made a great contribution to the German economy and arts. Thousands fought for Germany in the First World War. The Jewish religion is closely connected to Christianity which came from it, as did Islam. It is hard to find the reason unless one delves deeper. I think I have a clue. Jews consider themselves special and exclusive. They consider themselves "God's chosen people." In other words that they are better than other peoples. Jews have a tight-knit organization of self-help centred around the synagogue. They help one another, that is, OTHER JEWS. Because of this they achieve more and become more prosperous. This creates surplus cash which they have invested with interest and sometimes becomes the basis for large loans to governments and kings. This started long ago in the middle ages. Naturally this financial power has grown so you have Jewish investment in large banks and corporations, especially the multi-national corporations. Of course Jews are not the only ones doing it. British, Arab, Japanese, even teachers' pension funds are doing the same thing. The trouble was that the Jews were some of the first in the game, and their success and prosperity and especially their aloof exclusiveness created jealousy and suspicion among other groups who were not so well- organized and much poorer. This was the case after the First World war in Germany when the nation was obliged to pay huge reparations to France and England. German people were suffering, actually starving. World-wide there was a depression and unemployment was very high. When German parents have children crying for something to eat, it is easy to believe a brilliant but half-crazy demagogue, whose grandmother was reputed to have been seduced by a Jew that the JEWS ARE TO BLAME FOR EVERYTHING. Well, that is what happened. The Jews were reviled and blamed simply for being Jewish. Millions including pathetic little children were experimented on and exterminated by lethal injections of phenol, shot in the back of the head, made to dig their own graves or killed in poison gas ovens. You can't blame Jews for appearing to be paranoid about it happening again. It is not paranoid, it is justifiable concern. It could happen again....of course not just to Jews, but to any group of humans in ther world. Atrocities and racism are happening today in many parts of the world. Human beings are really one people. What happens to Jews, Gypsies, Iraqis, Tamils or so-called sexual deviants (gays?) happens to you and me also....because though it might not appear so, we are one human family.....even those bloody Germans. I think it regrettable that Jews, the Jewish Press and especially the Israelis do not mention the millions of non-Jews who also went into the concentration camps and were killed, tortured, starved and experimented on. There were Jehovah Witnesses, homosexuals, members of other German political parties, Gypsies, Poles, Russians, prisoners of war, resistance fighters, handicapped,( both mentally and physically) and quite a lot of others. JEWS were not the only ones to suffer. If Jews want to be liked better by others then they should include all non-Jews as their brothers in humanity, including Palestinian Muslims. I think it is their exclusiveness that has made others look askance at them. I am willing to include all Jews as my brothers in this amazing human family. When will the Jews include me as their brother? Maybe this is stretching it a bit, but consider: Jewish law says that you are a Jew because your mother was a Jew. If your father was Jewish and your mother was not, then yiou are not a Jew. If Adolf Hitler had been accepted as a Jew then probably he would not have been so anti-Jewish. The story goes and there is a lot of evidence to back it, Hitler's grandmother was a servant in a prosperous Jewish house. She was seduced by a male member of the family, maybe a son. Anyway she had a baby, Alois Schicklgruber and this boy was supported with an allowance and school fees for years by the Jewish employer. Alois' son was Adolph Hitler or Heidler, who was a very mixed up young man, and who supported himself with not so bad landscapes of Vienna and fervently wished to study to become an architect, but he was dirt poor. Now, if Hitler had been Jewish under Jewish law and not just quarter Jewish unofficially, most probably all those millions of murders of Jews (and others) might have been averted. So Jewish Law was indirectly responsible for the millions of Jewish deaths. (Ric)* *

Reasons for the Fall of Rome

America, Land of the Free.( There are more than two million persons in prison in the U.S.A.) Many parallels with present-day America. Press to read article. Christianity / Decline in morals / Public heath issues / Political Corruption / Unemployment / Inflation / Urban Decay / Inferior Technology / Increased Military spending In America preoccupation with fundamental Christianity has lead to an ostrich in the sand approach to modern problems. Decline in morals is centered around inequalities of wealth with more citizens becoming extremely poor. Also the state is prepared to kill other innocent citizens of the world by weapons of mass destruction. Public health is a mess with millions not being able to afford basic health care. Political corruption is so common in America that it is hardly taken notice of and when an official is caught for a crime, the penalty is a year or two at the most. Financial corruption is rarely punished. Unemployment is increasing rapidly, while millions of "employed" are either working part-time without benefits or are receiving a wage so small that they cannot house themselves well. Inflation ....yes it is happening and it is going to get much worse sooner, when the coterie of banks without government control, churn out billions of dollars. Urban decay: The infrastructure of U.S. cities are breaking down faster than they can be repaired or renewed. Inferior technology: American technology is dependent on oil and gas, which is the technology of yesterday.........this is simply unsustainable. Military Spending: See the following article. Since the world economies are integrated, these problems are not just of the American Empire in Decline. Good Luck Uncle Sam...Don't die yet! You can't afford your own funeral. (Ric)

The First Fleet.

Some of the" non- persons" Australia was stolen from.first fleet

1717-1776 Over 30,000 people are transported to the colonies in the West Indies and America as punishment for crimes committed. The American victory in the War of Independence means that sending convicts to America is no longer an option.
1776 Prison ships, called hulks, are first used to house prisoners. The hulks are moored on the River Thames and, as part of the punishment, the prisoners are set to work at cleaning the river.
1777 John Howard publishes his highly critical survey of prisons in England and Wales.
1788 The 'First Fleet' of convict ships arrives in Port Jackson (now Sydney), Australia. The fleet consists of 1030 people, of whom 548 are male convicts and 188 are female convicts. Transportation becomes a well-used punishment. It has been estimated that about one-third of all convicted criminals were transported to Australia and Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania).
Early 1800s The number of offences carrying the death penalty reaches a high point. Over 200 offences are now classed as capital offences. This includes pick-pocketing anything worth more than 2s or stealing anything worth more than £2. Juries become reluctant to convict people on minor charges as they do not want to condemn a person to death. This becomes an increasing cause of concern for the authorities.
1808 The penalty for pick-pocketing is changed from hanging to transportation for life.
1810 Work starts on the building of a new prison in Durham. The new prison has 600 cells and takes it first prisoners in 1819.
1823 The Gaol Act was introduced to try and improve the system of criminal justice. The death sentence is lifted from 130 minor offences, it is ruled that jailers are to be paid wages rather than fees and attempts at improving conditions in prisons were made (including forbidding alcohol and ensuring that female prisoners were looked after by female guards).
1829 Sir Robert Peel establishes the Metropolitan Police Force in London. The 'Peelers' or 'Bobbies' wore blue uniforms and tall hats and carried truncheons in a deliberate attempt to look different to soldiers. The first recruits were of poor cailbre: out of the original 2800 policemen, only 600 kept their jobs. Many were sacked because they were drunk.
1829 The last hanging for forgery took place.
1833 The last hanging of a juvenile took place.
1834 The practice of hanging in chains or gibbet irons was formally abolished.
1836 The last hanging for arson took place.

Captain, John Hunter (1793) said of his human cargo, "....the convicts (were) some of the worst characters ever sent out from Great Britain."

By standards today most of the convicts' "crimes" would be considered misdemeanors subject to a fine. In those grim days anyone stealing something of value above one guinea was sentenced to be hung (even children.) ************************************************************************************* I must learn to type as fast as this, but my two fingers get very tired already.

Lest We Forget.

Opium fields in Afghanistan RAWA: Since 2001 the opium cultivation increased over 4,400%. Under the US/NATO, Afghanistan became world largest opium producer, which produces 93% of world opium.
This is the poppy the war in Afghanistan is all about. The U.S. controls the export of opium/heroin, via government agencies including the C.I.A.<span class= The Taliban has only a small part of this as the growing is controlled by the Northern Warlords and the the puppet Afghan "government". The C.I.A. did the same thing in Vietnam and the Golden Triangle region of Laos. Now private "security" (read private army) firms are involved in the shipments. Taliban ruled 90% of Afghanistan from 1996-2001, it almost totally stamped out poppy cultivation as un-Islamic. The UN's drug control agency has confirmed this fact.

Remembrance Day ---- Poppy Day 2008

Lest We Forget that the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are about our troops invading to secure supplies of opium and oil. There is nothing heroic about it. ********************* Afghan boy whose family was killed by allied "liberating soldiers".A boy cries after U.S. soldiers broke open a padlock to search a room for weapons in his house in <span class=*Aftermath, Oct. 5 The twin towers terrorist attack had nothing to do with Afghanistan or Iraq.

Another one down. More to come. Why are Canadian troops in Afghanistan? 25% of returning men have psychological problems. Maybe they have doubts about them being there.


The real killer of this soldier is the U.S. War Policy that has sucked Canada in.

Don't blame the soldiers. Blame the governmental policy that sucks up to the American Administration.

Move elephants into Australia, scientist proposes

Feb. 1, 2012
Courtesy of Nature
and World Science staff

Aus­tral­ia may need an in­fu­sion of ele­phants and oth­er large mam­mals to solve its per­sist­ent ec­o­log­i­cal and wild­fire prob­lems, a sci­ent­ist pro­poses.

Ecol­o­gist Da­vid Bow­man of the Uni­vers­ity of Tas­ma­nia in Aus­tral­ia cites out-of-con­trol fires and bur­geon­ing fe­ral-animal popula­t­ions as quan­daries af­flict­ing the Land Down Un­der. Both could be solved by in­tro­duc­ing large mam­mals, as well as pay­ing ab­o­rig­i­nal hunters to con­trol the fe­ral an­i­mals and re­store the old prac­tice of patch burn­ing, he ar­gues. Patch burn­ing is a form of con­trolled burn­ing in­tend­ed to clean out and re­new bio­lo­gical re­sources.

“I real­ize that there are ma­jor risks as­so­ci­at­ed with what I am propos­ing,” as any tin­ker­ing with the en­vi­ron­ment can lead to un­planned con­se­quenc­es, said Bow­ma­n. “But the usu­al ap­proaches to ma­n­ag­ing these is­sues aren’t work­ing.”

Bow­man de­scribes his idea in this week’s is­sue of the re­search jour­nalNa­ture.

Feb. 7 will mark the three-year an­ni­ver­sa­ry of “Black Sat­ur­day,” when nearly 200 peo­ple died in a mas­sive fire­storm in south­ern Aus­tral­ia. Fires are a con­stant con­cern in the con­ti­nent, said Bow­ma­n, but so are its thriv­ing popula­t­ions of fe­ral pigs, camels, hors­es and cat­tle, among oth­ers.

Bow­man pro­poses to ma­n­age Aus­tral­ia’s trou­bled ec­o­sys­tem by in­tro­duc­ing beasts such as ele­phants, rhi­noc­er­os and even Ko­modo drag­ons. These would help con­sume flam­ma­ble grasses and con­trol fe­ral-animal popula­t­ions, he ar­gues.

The larg­est liv­ing land mam­mal na­tive to Aus­tral­ia is the red kan­ga­roo, which as an adult weighs about as much as an av­er­age ma­n. Larg­er mam­mals used to roam the con­ti­nent—such as a hippo-sized mar­su­pi­al re­lat­ed to the wom­bat and called di­pro­to­don, from the Great Ice Age—but they are no more.

The de­lib­er­ate in­tro­duc­tion by hu­ma­ns of po­pu­lations of over­sized, non-na­tive mam­mals to a new conti­nent would be un­prec­e­dent­ed in modern times. One group, though, has pro­posed in­tro­duc­ing large Af­ri­can mam­mals in­to the Great Plains of the Un­ited States, for some­what diff­erent rea­sons than those moti­vating Bow­man.

Carol Baxter is my distant cousin. She has not directly contributed to this weblog, and has not ever in fact acknowledged its existence, but because of the valuable information I received from reading her website about our family, I am very indebted to her.
Another family website helped me considerably. This was "Our Williams Story" by another distant cousin, Kieran Williams

I am heartened by the many emerging websites about the descendants of William Nash and Maria Haynes.
Then there are the many threads from Monaro Pioneers.
Thank you for all the sources.
I am hoping that when I am no longer able to continue (being nearly 79) that someone else wll pick up the ball and continue my blog.Of course I have included my political views and my non-religious attitudes because they are part of me and readers do not have to accept them, but may actually learn a little from them.

William Nash came to Australia as a Marine with the First Fleet 1788
William and Mariah's first child, William, was baptised on Sunday 25th May 1788
A wedding was celebrated at St Phillip's, Sydney, on 13 February 1789, between William Nash, a marine, and Maria Haynes, a convict, in the presence of Elizabeth Gratten and Samuel Barnes (Chaplain's clerk)
Mariah Haynes is not listed in John Cobley's 'Crimes of the First Fleet Convicts'
By 1803 William & Maria had separated, and she took the children with her. Maria later became associated with two other men, Robert Guy and in 1816, with William Neale.

6 Children1. William Nash born on 25 May 1788, buried on Friday 19th June 1789, a marine's child.

3. Mary Nash born 2 March 1793 and baptised 2 April
4. William Nash born 27 March 1795 and baptised 4 May
5. George Nash born 26 July 1797
6. Sarah Nash was born 16 Nov 1798

On 25th April 2010 Stephen Hawking, leading academic and cosmologist, told the Sunday Times: “We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet. I imagine they might exist in massive ships, having used up all the resources from their home planet. Such advanced aliens would perhaps become nomads, looking to conquer and colonise whatever planets they can reach.” He also points out that making contact with aliens could be very risky, stating: “If aliens ever visit us, I think the outcome would be much as when Christopher Columbus first landed in America, which didn’t turn out very well for the Native Americans.”

Gropecunt Lane

Gropecunt Lane was a name used in Oxford, London and other Englishtowns and cities in the Middle Ages for streets where prostitutes conducted their business. The name derives from cunt, the Middle English term forfemale genitalia, and the act of groping. There was also a Gropecunt Lane inDublin, Ireland near where the Savoy Cinema is now. Later sensibilities changed many names of streets bearing this name to more polite variations.

In London, the street that was Gropecunt Lane was near the present-day site of the Barbican Centre in the City of London. The street was called Grub Street in the 18th century, but renamed Milton Street in 1830 . Another street with a similar history in Southwark is Horselydown Lane ("whores lie down"), which is just to the south of Tower Bridge, and was also the site of the famousAnchor Brewhouse.

We come in Third with Williams.


is a patronymic form of the name William that originated in medieval England[2] and later came to be extremely popular in Wales. The meaning is derived from son or descendant of Guillemin, the French form of William. Derived from an Old French given name with Germanicelements; will = desire, will; and helm = helmet, protection.[3] It is the second most common surname in Wales and the third most common surname in the whole of the United Kingdom, the third most common in the United States of America and Australia and the fifth most common inNew Zealand.[4]

Old Harry Williams was asked how was it that the long list of Williams lead by far those of Nash over the last couple of hundred years.

"Well, let's see.Them Nashes they was more posh and they kept the family bible, so we lot had nothing to read at night.There was no T.V. in them days, and we didn't want to waste candles, so we used to all jump in bed together and make more Williams's."


Statistics are drawn from Australian government records of 2007.[1]

Australia. The first fleet sailed from England in 1787 carrying marine William Nash and his common law wife Maria Haynes. They were the progenitors of an extensive Nash family in Australia. Another early settler was Andrew Nash. He had acquired the Woolpack Inn in Parramatta in 1821 and became well-known for the prowess of his racehorses. A later settler from Wiltshire was James Nash. He discovered gold along the Mary river in Queenland and helped precipitate the second Australian gold rush.

There were also Nash convicts in Australia. Some thrived; Robert Nash, transported on the Albemarle in 1791; John Nash on the Eleanor in 1831; and Michael Nash from Limerick, on the Rodney in 1851.

This is my niece in the Philippines who
needs serious attention from some sincere young man.

Neither here nor there.

If a man was on an escalator, but walking back down it and the elevator was located in a revolving restaurant on a large airliner going in a southerly direction and the earth was revolving on its axis and at the same time was travelling in an elliptical path around the sun, which was travelling around the galaxy, which was many movements was the man travelling in?

Wild man of North Australia.

I met Michael (Tarzan) Fomenko(shown here at 81 years) son of a Russian Princess when I was 18 and he was twenty. He was a handsome young man. I was in love with his sister Nina Fomenko, who was gracious to me but held my ardour at arms' length. In later years I met her in North Queensland where she and her husband Brian Patrick Donnellan were cutting cane. They had no mattress to sleep on, so I bought them one. Nina was always beautiful.

Toonoom Falls
Situated in the heart of Royal National Park to the south of Sydney, Toonoum Falls is a pretty, 5 metre high waterfall alongside Sir Bertram Steven Drive not far from the Garie turnoff. The photo shows the falls in flood.
Location: Royal National Park.

In the fifties, I lived close to here in a rock shelter once used by Aborigines. I used to swim in this creek a little further down the hill. My family thought I was crazy and I probably was, but life here on the edge of the National Park was idyllic if you could bear the flies, mosquitoes, snakes and centipedes.. (Ric)

*The Australian Lyre Bird is the world's best imitator; able to mimic the calls of 15 different species of birds in their locality and string the calls into a melody. Also been known to mimic the sound mobile phones.

*The echidna is such a unique animal that it is classified in a special class of mammals known asmonotremes, which it shares only with the platypus. The echidna lays eggs like a duck but suckles its young in a pouch like a kangaroo. For no apparent reason, it may decide to conserve energy by dropping its body temperature to 4 degrees and remain at that temperature from 4 to 120 days. Lab experiments have shown that the echidna is more intelligent that a cat and it has been seen using its spikes, feet and beaks to climb up crevices like a mountaineer edging up a rock chimney.

*Purple wallaby - The Purple-neck Rock Wallaby [Petrogale Purpureicollis], inhabits the Mt Isa region in Northwest Queensland. The Wallaby secretes a dye that transforms its face and neck into colours ranging from light pink to bright purple.

*The Fierce Snake or Inland Taipan has the most toxic venom of any snake. Maximum yield recorded (for one bite) is 110mg. That would probably be enough to kill over 100 people or 250,000 mice.

*The Wombat deposits square poos on logs, rocks and even upright sticks that it uses tomark its territory.

*A 10kg Tasmanian Devil is able to exert the same biting pressure as a 40kg dog. It can also eat almost a third of its body weight in a single feeding.

*Australia is the smallest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent in the world. It is the only country which is also a whole continent.

*Over 90% of Australia is dry, flat and arid. Almost three-quarters of the land cannot support agriculture in any form.

*A baby kangaroo at the time of its birth measures 2 centimetres.

*Kangaroos need very little water to survive and are capable of going for months without drinking at all. When they do need water, they dig 'wells' for themselves; frequently going as deep as three or four feet. These 'kangaroo pits' are a common source of water for other animals living in the kangaroo's environment.

Kangaroo attacks dog, man. ^

*A kangaroo being chased by a dog may jump into a dam. If the dog gives chase, the kangaroo may turn towards the dog, then use its paws to push the dogs head underwater in order to drown it.

*Emus and kangaroos cannot walk backwards, and are on the Australian coat of arms for that reason.

*A monotreme is a animal that lays eggs and suckles its young. The world's only monotremes are the platypus and the echidna.

*The male platypus has a poisonous spine that can kill a dog and inflict immense pain on a human.

*When a specimen of the platypus was first sent to England, it was believed the Australians had played a joke by sewing the bill of a duck onto a rat.

*Box Jelly fish - The box jellyfish is considered the world's most venomous marine creature. The box jellyfish has killed more people in Australia than stonefish, sharks and crocodiles combined.

*The Sydney Funnelweb spider is considered the world's most deadly spider. It is the only spider that has killed people in less than 2 hours. Its fangs are powerful enough to bite through gloves and fingernails. The only animals without immunity to the funnelweb's venom are humans and monkeys.

*Lung fish - Queensland is home to lung fish, a living fossil from the Triassic period 350 million years ago.


*It is estimated that by the time transportation ended in 1868, 40 per cent of Australia's English-speaking population were convicts.
*A census taken in 1828 found that half the population of NSW were Convicts, and that former Convicts made up nearly half of the free population.

*In 2007, it was estimated that 22 per cent of living Australians had a convict ancestor.

*Convicts were not sent to Australia for serious crimes. Serious crimes, such as murder, rape, or impersonating an Egyptian were given the death sentence in England.

*Crimes punishable by transportation included recommending that politicians get paid, starting a union, stealing fish from a river or pond, embezzlement, receiving or buying stolen goods, setting fire to underwood, petty theft, or being suspected of supporting Irish terrorism.

* Alcohol- It has been reported that the first European settlers in Australia drank more alcohol per head of population than any other community in the history of mankind.

* Police force - Australia's first police force was a band of 12 of the most well behaved Convicts.

* Mass moonings - In 1832, 300 female Convicts at the Cascade Female Factory mooned the Governor of Tasmania during a chapel service. It was said that in a "rare moment of collusion with the Convict women, the ladies in the Governor's party could not control their laughter.
