TweetFacebookTassie Tiger TalesAs we recently reported, reader Christian Kropp told us he’d twice had encounters with the Tasmanian tiger, deep in the Barrington wilderness.

For the record, we believe Christian. What can we say. He sounded sincere.

Academics reckon Tasmanian tigers have a 1 in 1.6 trillion chance of being alive.

Anyhow, as we’ve said before, scientists saythe Tasmanian tiger [also known as the thylacine] became extinct in Tasmania in 1936 and on the n mainland about 2000 years ago.

Now a report in New Scientist magazine said mathematical modelling done at the University of California suggestedthe probability of Tasmanian tigers still existing was 1 in 1.6 trillion.

Christian’s sightings (the latest of which occurred five years ago) did occur deep in the Barrington wilderness in a World Heritage Area. This is a place the National Parks and Wildlife Service describes as an “ancient landscape”.

Could his sightings really be true? Stranger things have happened.

Can’t Buy Me LoveThe average n would spend $3311 on an engagement ring, a survey says.

Aussies think $3311 is, on average, the right amount to spend on an engagement ring.

But the lawyers who did the survey warned that expensive rings don’talways buy happiness.

The survey of 1000 people found almost half of ns think the cost of an engagement ring doesn’t matter.

Men were willing to spend an average of $3487 on a ring, while women thought$3111 was the right figure.

The survey was commissioned by Slater and Gordon Family Lawyers.

One of the firm’s lawyersMona Emera said “you only have to look at celebrity couples to see that an expensive ring does not always buy happiness”.

“If James Packer had been part of our survey, there’s no doubt the $10 million, 35-carat diamond he bought Mariah Carey would have thrown off our results,” she said.

“But the average n couple can take comfort in the fact that even a $10 million ring doesn’t safeguard against relationship breakdown.

“In our experience, the relationships that are built on solid foundations are the ones that go the distance. There’s a reason ‘for richer or poorer’ is included in traditional marriage vows.”

We do wonder why lawyers would do a survey on engagement rings.

Hmmm. In their press release, they did provide legal answers to the question, “Who gets to keep the engagement ring if a couple breaks up?”.

Ahhh. Now we get it.
