Fit's 'at?

What's this? You go guess.

This was sent to me by my cousin over the pond, so don't y'all go thinking we Brits are the only ones to go soft and wiberal.





















Any ideas?

Does this help a bit?







































This is in Austria. It is a Justice Centre.

Clearly they have a different idea of how to handle criminals.

It is called Justizzentrum Leoben.

Homeless people should have it so good!

My Colonial cousins quote that, "Once again the taxpayer gets stung." Where have I heard that before?

So much for punishment or deterrent. Hand me the switch-blade now.

Just in case you ever get these two environments mixed up, this comparison chart should make things a little bit clearer:

@ PRISON

You spend most of your time in a 10X10 cell
@ WORK

You spend most of your time in a 6X6 cubicle

@ PRISON

You get three fully paid for meals a day
@ WORK

You get a break for one meal, and you have to pay for it

@ PRISON

For good behaviour, you get time off
@ WORK

For good behaviour, you get more work

@ PRISON

The guard locks and unlocks all the doors for you
@ WORK

You must carry a security card and open all the doors yourself

@ PRISON

You can watch TV and play games
@ WORK

You could get fired for watching TV and playing games

@ PRISON

You get your own toilet
@ WORK

You have to share the toilet with people who pee on the seat

@ PRISON

They allow your family and friends to visit
@ WORK

You aren't even supposed to speak to your family

@ PRISON

All expenses are paid by the taxpayers with no work required on your part
@ WORK

You must pay all your expenses to go to work, and they deduct taxes from your salary to pay for prisoners

@ PRISON

You spend most of your life inside bars wanting to get out
@ WORK

You spend most of your time wanting to get out and go inside bars

@ PRISON
You must deal with sadistic wardens
@ WORK

They are called 'managers'

The politicians involved don't want to make it too harsh--After all, they might wind up inside...

Looks much like the new prison in Austria!

Prison:
At the end of the day you go to a cell, alone.

Work:
At the end of the day you go home to your wife/husband and kids and have a nice hot meal prepared for you.

Just another version Noddy.

Those pictres actually look very similar to the apartment I'm currently trying to buy a flat in.

And for once I'm not being sarcastic.

Dickie,

Not often I say this, but you are quite correct, if not politically. It IS in Austria and I have amended the post accordingly once my colonial cousins emailed me giving up their claim as one of theirs. There's no oil in Austria is there?

ATNS,

Apartment! Gee, don't you guys still have flats down south? Have a nice day.

Annette,

Bloody good point apart from the hot meal bit. I expect little and get less!

Apartment, flat... If I say apartment to myself it sounds nicer (and more importantly bigger) than the places I actually live in.

Thanks for bursting my bubble though Boss!
