    Australia offers 'best job in world' on paradise island

    SYDNEY (AFP) An Australian state is offering internationally what it calls "the best job in the world" -- earning a top salary for lazing around a beautiful tropical island for six months.

    The job pays 150,000 Australian dollars (105,000 US dollars) and includes free airfares from the winner's home country to Hamilton Island on the Great Barrier Reef, Queensland's state government announced on Tuesday.

    In return, the "island caretaker" will be expected to stroll the white sands, snorkel the reef, take care of "a few minor tasks" -- and report to a global audience via weekly blogs, photo diaries and video updates.

    The successful applicant, who will stay rent-free in a three-bedroom beach home complete with plunge pool and golf buggy, must be a good swimmer, excellent communicator and be able to speak and write English.

    Hmmm. My husband needs to apply for this job! I tried going to the website where you apply but it seems to be having some problems, probably due to high activity.
    You won't cry for my absence, I know -
    You forgot me long ago. Am I that unimportant...?
    Am I so insignificant...? Isn't something missing?
    Isn't someone missing me?

    What's the catch though? Maybe the snorkeling has to be done in shark infested waters or the person has to live there alone or something.

    They are working on the problem, but I can't believe they didn't anticipate the huge amount of traffic.
