another (disconcerting) similarity between myself and Bernard Black

I just found myself updating my Centrelink information the way Bernard Black does his tax—i am tired (though not drunk), so i am squinting and frowning a lot and struggling very much to understand the following language:

If a customer is sharing their accommodation with a person who is not an immediate family member who is 16 years of age or older, who has previously been wed to a person who is blind in one eye but nonetheless manages quite well to drive straight while waving at strangers out the window, then there will be a need to review the living arrangements of the household (an immediate family member is considered to be either a brother, sister, mother, father, grandmother, grandfather).

Also, every time i hit a radio button a bunch more open up, like some Kafkaesque telescopic text.

For now i am going to avoid going into considering how this parallel (between me being on welfare and Bernard Black generally failing to pay tax) extends to my own current moral quandary about being on welfare at all.
