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 . . ?
He meant to say --> Does that damn Australian Zed ever produce anything accept.... blah, blah, blah!

What me paranoid? NEVER!

I said Cheezus wuz a Chew and well that prolly made me a bad man! :biggrin:

Well... kinda envisaged by a Dane! Some mildly surprised and rightly terrified engineers where asked to make the damn thing stand up! They did it, lots of bitching and sniping, lots of money and lots of years later it turned out to be the best investment in tourism that NSW ever made! Oh yeah, and I will be damned if it doesn't actually stand up!

God bless them though they love to party and wish they could own guns.
I may surprise many yanks to know you CAN own guns in Oz.

Not semi autos though. Serious hunters only need one shot with a bolt action. Only American gun wankers need a 30 shot mag to take down a target.

Then we have the 12's... if the 18's are Ferrari's the 12's are Mini's with full house blown V8s. You have to be slightly potty to sail them, #1 Rig carries a kite bigger than most 30' yachts, same number of strings as an 18 but you have one less crew! One of the best 12 skippers back in my day had one arm!!!!!

Kite up, trap on, feet under straps and hang on for dear life... U R half in control and half complete passenger!

Then there is...

Moths... they have taken off... literally!



Only an Aussie would have been mad enough to go there, sure lets make a boat 11' long and 11" wide, stick it on foils and see if we can control the damn thing! They look impossible to sail sitting on the beach... they are light years away from the Moths I sailed!

I was just looking to poke some good hearted fun at Zed. He has taken it in the spirit it was intended and has run with it - admirably I might add.

In seriousness - Australia is one of the few places I can think of that if I was to leave the US - thats where I would want to go. I had a couple of friends that were from there. Man that guy could drink. He would start pounding beer at 9am - pas out drunk in his car in my driveway at 2pm - wake up at 5pm and be good to go until midnight pounding more beer.

I always loved the Fosters beer commercial where they are looking for more firewood to keep the bonfire going and cant find any so they dismantle the hosts house to supply the bonfire. That was a great commercial.

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

omg that veg stuff. the only thing possibly as bad is grits. Imagine my horror when in the south one morning I ordered some pancakes and got grits.

Anyway, my jab at the Max franchise was just poking fun. Except for that thunderdome thing. It did truly suck. Also:




If there was ever an opportunity lost, It would have to be to have been to have been the first human in Australia. before the english got there.

Imagine being trapped on a tour bus in Sydney while the guide teaches a bus full of high school kids to sing this song incessantly:
(Needless to say I'll never volunteer to be a chaperone for such a trip ever again...)

Not only that, but my trip to Oz taught me that they essentially send us their toilet water (it's called Fosters here in the states) while they drink yummy Victoria Bitter instead :p. I swear I had to check for Fosters draft at a half dozen different pubs before I found it. The funny thing is the Fosters over there is definitely different than the Fosters here in the states. Then again, the stuff we drink here in the states is actually made in Canada ;). As if that bait and switch weren't enough of a crime the prisoner country downunder has recently given us the first "space" beer. I'm sure it's just as good as space ice cream ;).

:egg:

</rant off>

I raced in an "Australian rules Combat race" once. For those taht don't know, you qualify, fastest starts in the rear, if you get passed twice you are out, last car wins.

I'll never do that again!

Then there is the rat problem:


I will say that some of the best hospitality ever was courtesy of aussies, they are so tidy:


Australia!
