Centrelink.

Blacktown Centrelink is a depressing, dirty white building. The roads surrounding it have been ripped up by traffic to the point where it feels like you're driving over unpaved ground. I've been down ugly country roads with nothing but empty fields and rusting tractors to show a change in the landscape that are in better condition that this. The buildings around it are, for the most part, armed with faded and broken signs (the Ice Skating sign, barely legible, dangles from the wall) and signs that are relics from the seventies, and which have been broken out to tell people that there is a generic supermarket here, behind the trees and trucks and next to the bowling alley.

Inside Centrelink, the posters show only non-white families. Make of that what you will.

MSU means Making Shit Up.

"Did you hear John Howard* on the telly tonight?"
"MSU?"
"Apparently, if we trust him, everything will stay just fine."
"MSU."




*if you find that you cannot connect with the concept of john howard lying to drive home the usability of this term (you're either one of those lucky foreigners or just plain ignorant) please feel free to add a political liar of your own choice.
