    Duuuuude! Made in HOLLYWOOD!

    Nope we don't do anything of note down here at all, don't come here it is not worth the airfare! Complete and utter waste of time, stay where you are. We are all wastrels and convict crims with bad accents, no education, no talent, too much fat and no hope.

    Unlike Americans!

    Do yourself a favor, go to France or summin instead! :biggrin:

    The British pretty much used them for cannon fodder any time they can trick them into joining up. Of course the USA took note of this and began the same trick. It worked. "You guys just run up that hill", "Ok Mate". There having big water problems/no rain. The weather patterns have shifted and it rains out to sea now.
    Lots of fires, lots of water problems coming in the future. God bless them though they love to party and wish they could own guns. Lots of Asians walking around with lots of money. God bless them though, they love to party.

    A typical aussie's day:

    6:00 AM- Wake up early from the overwhelming heat.

    6:15 AM- Drink a couple cold Foster's

    6:30 AM- Hitch a ride on a kangaroo to work

    7 AM to 3 PM- Wrestle crocodiles, feed the Emu, flat out like a lizard drinking.

    5 PM- More Fosters, barbecue some prawn, talk about the last time they were in a brothel with a fist full of fifties.

    7 PM Chase kangaroos/play cricket

    10 PM Flog the log/ hit the sack.

    Oh, not much, just about 1/2 the iron ore sold globally and the majority of the zircon mined today, a big percentage of uranium ore and a lot of other minerals.

    Austrailia produces gold and a littany of other base metals (copper, zinc etc.), not too mention surplus crops that are exported due to the low population. As far as their city people producing anything, I would question that. Hopefully they are not Sprawl-Mart slaves like most of the Western World.

    I gotta admit, this one has me stumped Strawboss, what's with this esoteric question . . ?

    When has Australia ever caused the world strife or distress . . ? Isn't that the USA's usual job . . ?
