Happy Australia Day !!!

Postby BonsoWonderDog » Wed Jan 26, 2011 9:17 am

I love a sunburnt country,
A land of sweeping plains,
Of ragged mountain ranges,
Of drought and flooding rains,
I love her far horizons,
I love her jewel sea,
Her beauty and her terror -
The wide brown land for me.

My neighbour went there as a '£10 pom' post war, and came back when he decided there were too many forms of wildlife that could kill his young children, so Australia kind of scares me as a concept.

Happy Australia Day anyway! :lol:

lol we get chavs instead, but they get big dogs because they can't get guns.

only potentially lethal creature here is the adder/viper, and they're very rarely seen even in the country.

You're all welcome to visit.

The dangerous animal/insect thing is crap. Well, it's true, but nothing to worry about. I have never, nor do I know anyone who has ever been bitten by a snake or spider. Seen plenty of them sure, but never bitten.

CR I think you need to add "FLOODS" to a few places in that pic.

I have never seen an echidna in a house either, but I guess it could happen.

What is all this about "big beer"? A can of beer is 375ml.......is that big?

Standard beverage can size here is 12 fl. oz, which is 355 ml. So, I'd say no, that's not big.

But then, you probably haven't seen the Fosters ads we see here. :lol:

When Foster's became available around here it was distinguished by it's ginormous 'oil can' container, which contained 25.4 fl oz, which, by my calculations, compared to the normal Yankee sized can, is a bunch more beer.

But what's really important is the fact that the phrase "sharks with friggin lasers" most definitely deserves a place in the Lexicon of Iconic Lulzery. Right up there with "Hey! Where da white women at?"

Yes, I've long known that 1. Foster's is considered about the same level with urine in Australia, and 2. The whole big can thing is just for the US market.

lager is on a level with urine at the best of times.

apart from some of the indian ones like cobra which are quite nice.
