    Nothing to outdo Keefster, that's the same sort of **** I'm talking about. Although when you said they made you engineer, i though you might have had to actually make the machine's engine work properly, rather than just put on a stripey cap and and point the train in the right f'ing direction! ;)

    (and if you're gonna play the Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald, then I'm tempted to play Wichita Linesman at ya...those c'nts (term of endearment in Australia) get $250,000 a year to sit in their LV's (trercks) to listen to MP3's and watch videos, and ocasionally climb a thing.)

    Did you know that if you have any Glen Campbell on vinyl and play it backwards, the lineman's dog comes back, his wife comes back, he has his first beer in weeks, the trailer levels out.

    Yeahnah, you got me to a tee. No argument there. I can't say I'm proud of anything particularly Australian, it's just another place, that happens to be going ok while everywhere else seems to be falling to ****. National pride is not so much our thing, compared to Americans.

    (ok, if you twisted my arm, the Saturday Night Fever soundtrack was actually pretty good, but that was before i was born, and it's at least 1/2 American.)

    The US has alienated nearly every nation on earth and now they are alienating their allies? I hear it the rhetoric of the new chief stooge, now I see it here. Oh well, the Aussie government isn't completely stupid, it has made good ties with the Chinese. Perhaps when they take over as the next superpower we'll just seamlessly switch across and avoid being dragged into the abyss.

    Doesn't Australia export a lot of valuable minerals? I am thinking of bauxite in particular, but there may be others.

    Who cares, I'm dead by then and being totally irresponsible I have made it invisible to me by applying the label "somebody else's problem" to it!

    Seriously?

    We will probably get Chinese recycle and build an island out of that. Preferable something mobile so we can change neighbourhoods every so often.

    Manson Nixon line? Really? So who is the redneck? Just as well Mason and Dixon probably never heard the descriptor themselves, they'd turn in their graves! Marvellous what a mental disorder and too much coke can do for a man!

    We have Bogans not Red Necks, they are cousins but kinda different. You might relate to them more than your home grown white trash.

    I guess if we end up in a mobile country we all become 'vagrant trash' (can't say white can I?)... We'd probably just park anyway, probably couldn't afford the fuel to move it.

    So yeah... over flowing with nasty bogans down here, what ever you do DON'T COME VISIT!

    You obviously haven't spend any time outside of the cities, rural Australia is full of rednecks. Gympie is a classic example, Thargomindah, Warwick, Tenterfield, I have spent time in all those towns and the locals are classic rubes for the most part. They will smile while you hand them money but if you weren't born there don't expect to fit in there.

    You obviously jump to erroneous conclusions, I have lived deep in "deliverance country" for long enough to know what is out there. Bogans yes, ferals yes, hippies yes, bikies yes, inbreds yes, belligerent natives yes but not your archetypal red neck... IMO they are a uniquely American product. Maybe you haven't travelled deep south USA?

    The locals in most places I have lived didn't consider you local unless you'd been there over 20 years... and then only just. One of the WORST lot where the NSW 'Palm Beach Hillbillies', wealthy open minded suburb? LOL, think again! It has a hard core of, possibly inbred, locals.

    Plagues of them. Apparently clearing a lot of land and growing grass for grazing rather suited the bouncy little buggers.

    Plagues of 'em, huh? There's ways to deal with plagues of anything. Are they good eatin'? Are 'roo burgers "a thing" there?
    ...and if you chaps still had guns down there, you all could treat 'em like we used to treat the buffalo. In short order, be no mo' 'roos. Except in zoos and such.

    Yup, we have roo meat in the supermarkets. Its ultra lean but a little strong for many, cooked well it is OK. Idiots from OS routinely scold us for shooting them, they just don't seem to get the numbers of them that bounce around some parts down here! We have 50 to 60 million of them hopping around the joint.

    People have guns legally where the roos are, out there you'd be lucky to hit a human even if you where trying.

    To get a licence, a person must prove a genuine reason to have a firearms licence. Shooting roos where they are an over population is a genuine reason, normally it is either a farmer or a professional hunter that sells the animal. Having a gun because you upset your neighbour is not considered a genuine reason, no matter how big or ugly he is.

    Vegemite, served right, is surprisingly good. Goes well with a few things.

    I guess deep fried anything tastes OK... although I have never had a fried Mars bar.

    I've never tried it, but this commercial tells me it's great for breakfast lunch or tea.
    ...but I'll have to just take their word on that. lol





    How 'bout a deep fried stick of butter? Yum! lol Seen that at a fair here once. Didn't try it either, but I remember people saying at the time it was alright.

    Although they're all dead now. Arteries clogged right up on 'em. lol

    If you do spread it VERY thin, that is how the locals have it... if you want a laugh then serve it to some smuck nice and thick.

    If you want to try Vegemite but don't want to buy a whole jar, take a "one a day" vitamin and chew it. You have now tasted Vegemite.
