Bush Rat

No, this is not a political post.

Sarah's friend from the 'Zealand won $5,000 (AUD) for voting. Did he vote for a president? No, he voted for an invention. And which invention? A hand propelled macadamia nut harvester called the "Bush Rat." The inventor himself won $50,000. According to Sarah, $5,000 AUD is about $3,000 USD. Nice chunk of change.

For voting. Wow.
