Australian Retail

Dremel 654  1/4" Straight Routing Bit
Australian retail is price gouging on the back of a steady strong AUD.  This Dremel bit is AUD $28 here in Sydney (Bunnings), and retails for USD $8.50 in the US.

Wait wait, I found it for $20 (before shipping) on an online AU hobby shop.  But the point stands.  Expect to pay 2~3x the US price for things in AU.

I want it to router out my skateboard for weight savings.

Street Views Germany

So Google Street Views did manage to map some of Germany before giving up due to NIMBY concerns. Look at this country house. So nice.
