New South Wales will be putting some licences on smartphones from 2016.
The first licences to be made available digitally will be those for recreational fishing, responsible service of alcohol and conduct of gambling licenses, NSW minister for Finance, Services and Property Dominic Perrottet announced on Wednesday.
The drivers license, the one that assumedly everyone wants, will be the last to digitise. It's set to come around in 2018.
"In 2015 our citizens are mobile and digital and that’s where the government should be too," said Mr Perrottet in an official statement. "The introduction of the NSW Digital Licence will mean the days of multiple plastic cards clogging up precious wallet-space are numbered."

If you're spooked by reptiles, then touching one can be a very traumatic experience
In this new video from America's Funniest Home Videos, one woman at an educational animal presentation is having a difficult time working up the nerve to touch a tiny alligator. And by "difficult time," we mean that she's frantically yelling at pretty much everyone.
Good on you for tackling your fears, lady!Viral Videos, Watercooler, Videos, Woman, and Reptiles

Stars of the latest Marvel installment Chris Evans (Captain America) and Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) introduced the film and an exclusive movie poster after chatting with Kimmel about what it was like to film the movie in AtlantaNovember 25, 2015

Australia has long had a drunken love affair with the kebab. A night out Down Under isn't complete without huffing down a tangled mess of cheese, meat and tabouli and trying to keep it down while taking a taxi home.
While not our own creation, the humble Turkish döner kebab has since become one of the country's treasured gems and is now the focus of a new documentary: Kebab Kings.
A fly-on-the-wall look at two Australian kebab shops — one in Sydney and the other in Melbourne — Kebab Kings tells the stories of the people who make the delicacy just as much as the people who splatter their faces with them at 3 a.m. while struggling to see straight Read more...More about Documentary, Film, Australia, Entertainment, and Sbs
One of the fastest-funded Kickstarters of the year dropped this week, and it's a board game unlike any other you've seen. A board game that may, in the age of Trump, start to feel uncomfortably close to our divided reality.
In fact, it's probably for the best that this game isn't available in time for you to play it at your Thanksgiving dinner
The game is called "Secret Hitler," and as potentially offensive as the title might sound, this game actually constitutes a great little history lesson on how the infamous demagogue rose to power Read more...More about Games, Hitler, Entertainment, and Gaming
Food blogging may not seem like a tough gig, but things can get rough when you decide to litter your reviews with pinches of casual racism and homophobia.
That's what the boys at "Burger Bun Day" — a supposed group of Melbournians trying their hand at foodblogging — learnt when they posted about their meal at Carlton restaurant Ike's Rack Shack.
Australian blog Brown Cardigan captured Burger Bun Day's Instagram post — and the complete annihilation given by the restaurant's response — before they took it down.
Fair warning, the original review is highly offensive. Read more...More about Australia, Food Blogging, Instagram, Watercooler, and Conversations
Warning: Don't continue reading if you don't want to know who won this season of Dancing With the Stars.
Dancing With the Stars has a brand new champ: Bindi Irwin
This is not a surprise, of course
The Aussie activist and daughter of late Crocodile Hunter Steve Irwin has been a favorite all season, winning over viewers with her bubbly personality, positive outlook, ability to drive us to tears with those tributes to her dad and skills on the dance floor
Backstreet Boy Nick Carter didn't go down easily, though. The singer ended his Dancing run with a perfect score on a salsa-tango fusion that really highlighted how far he'd come since that first dance Read more...More about Abc, Television, Entertainment, Tv, and Dancing With The Stars
With the likeliness of the Adele-aissance to completely blow the roof off the pop charts, it seems like a good time to contemplate where will we all be when every one of those nuanced, ballad feels hit?
It's no mystery that 25 is primed to rise to the top of the 2015 musical offerings, and a lot of people are going to be feeling a lot of things.
Therefore, it's probably a good idea to seek out a nice safe space to curl up into a ball as we all wait for the Adele emotional wave to crash over us real hard
Remember, the tighter the space; the tighter the ball you must curl up into — but your emotions can soar as high as they want. Read more...More about Music, Lists, Humor, Adele, and Watercooler
Sometimes, younger brothers can be kind of annoying. Which is why this little girl didn't react so well upon finding out that her mother is having another baby boy.
When the mother in this video uses a tin of blue paint to a hint that a boy is on the way, this little girl asks "because the baby likes blue, maybe?"
The guessing game ends, with this little girl's rather adorable tantrum in response to news of another brother in the family

Thanksgiving is a holiday founded on the spirit of manifest destiny, and your family plans to keep in that spirit by stomping right over each other's social and economic beliefs in a group setting
While you can't avoid this tornado of ill informed opinions, quotes from newspapers your relatives read in waiting rooms, and statistics that aren't just politically incorrect, but also mathematically impossible, you can take comfort in watching it happen to others Read more...More about Politics, Family, Humor, Thanksgiving, and Watercooler
If you're thinking cowboy, princess and astronaut are typical careers choices for the pre-adolescent child, you're out of step with the times
This year's annual Fatherly Imagination Report — based on 500 responses by kids ages 1-10 — discovered what this generation's kids really want to be when they grow up. The most popular answer of 2015 across all age groups was — drumroll please — a professional athlete
While most of the children interviewed dreamed of becoming the next Lebron James or Serena Williams, others hoped to find careers like doctors, firefighters, teachers and vets Read more...More about Kids, Parenting, Careers, Lifestyle, and Family Parenting
While popular among designers, the commercial 3D printer space has, so far, failed to capture much mainstream attention and instead seems to occupy a distinctly tech and academic niche
But one project hopes to change all that by introducing 3D printing to an entirely new, mostly untapped market for the technology: kids. The Rever 3D printer touts itself as an affordable and easy-to-use 3D printer for children looking to craft their own toys and harness their imaginations
Aesthetically, the small 3D printer starts in the right place by looking like a space helmet instead of a complicated, high-tech device or an oversimplified toy. But the design, which is fronted by a translucent visor–style cover, has a specific purpose — safety Read more...More about Kickstarter, 3d Printer, 3d Printing, Tech, and Apps Software
Alright, we'll admit it. We're suckers for unique marriage proposals — and this one is pretty sweet.
Actor and Jurassic Park fan EJ Cantu from Rochester, New York proposed to his girlfriend of five years, Katelyn Machnica, by re-enacting a scene from Jurassic World, where Chris Pratt tries to tame a group of dinosaurs.
Cantu tames the three dino-masked actors of course, and breaks into the Jurassic Park theme song, singing "Will you marry me?" to his longtime girlfriend — who of course said yes.

The Volkswagen Group announced Monday that it has prepared and submitted for approval updated engine management software for its U.S. versions of the Audi 3.0-liter TDI diesel engines. The revised software alters the auxiliary emission control devices (AECD) — the so-called "defeat device" — and brings the vehicles into compliance with the Environmental Protection Agency and California Air Resources Board emissions laws.
The VW Group will install the rewritten software on all affected U.S. models once it is approved by the agencies. Audi estimates installing the new software could reach into the "mid-double-digit millions of euros." Read more...More about Cars, Tech, Transportation, Audi, and Volkswagen

The city of Chicago released video Tuesday of police officer Jason Van Dyke firing 16 shots into the body of Laquan McDonald, fatally wounding the 17-year-old
Though McDonald quickly falls to the ground, Van Dyke continues to fire into his body as the teenager jerks on the street. Puffs of smoke from the bullets can be seen rising from his prone body thereafter.
"It is everything that it is described to be by the news accounts," Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez said of the video at an earlier Tuesday press conference. "It is graphic, it is violent, it is chilling." Read more...More about Video, Chicago, Murder, Police, and Us World
There’s curiosity, and there is just plain deviant. Some people aren’t satisfied with a guess or an imagined answer; these folks have to go out and try it themselves
That’s how we imagine these bizarre obsessions came about and eventually made it into the history books. Below, Fastrack gets down with the dirty deeds and not-so-fun fixations
Melolagnia = A state of sexual arousal caused by music: Somewhere between the tone deaf and musically bent, there’s a bunch of people who appreciate music entirely differently. And for the select few who belong to this group, chorus usually equals climax.
Objectophile = An unhealthy level of attraction to an object: Of all the things we possess, there are but a few that really possess us. Our money is with the metallic.
Maschalagnia = A deep fascination of armpits: Of all those deep recesses of the human body that nobody discusses, the pits are definitely up there. Some people, however, are happy to overlook the stench and possible growth, all for the bigger picture. Hands in the air if you agree. Read more...

The main suspect behind the Paris attacks plot likely planned to carry out a separate suicide bombing in the capital's La Defense business district with an accomplice, according to new information revealed by the Paris prosecutor on Tuesday.
The prosecutor, Francis Molins, said the attacks were planned for Nov. 18 or 19.
Abdelhamid Abaaoud, a 27-year-old Belgian man, was believed to be the ringleader of the attacks on Nov. 13 that left 130 dead and hundreds more wounded. He was one of three people killed during a police raid in the Saint-Denis neighborhood of Paris on Nov. 18. His female cousin, Hasna Ait Boulahcen, also died in the raid, while an unidentified third person is believed to have detonated a suicide vest, which led to part of the apartment collapsing.
