It’s an obvious and self-validating truth that most citizens of Australia are inferior to most citizens of the United States of America. The only remaining question is, why is that so? Could it be that most Aussie mothers feed their children Kangaroo milk? And dress the children in Koala skins?Dec 16, 2011 at 4:40 pm #1813028
I don't believe that. I think they are great people as demonstrated in Roger.Dec 16, 2011 at 4:42 pm #1813029

Maybe so, but when I get my backpack kit small enough to fit in one of these kangaroo ball bags I'll get even.Dec 16, 2011 at 5:28 pm #1813054

I'm trying do decide if the OP is meant to be funny, sarcastic, or….??? Not trying to be mean, but I'm just not sure what this thread is really for.Dec 16, 2011 at 7:55 pm #1813112

"Cabin fever time…"

Really hope that your account was hacked or this was an inside joke, as I worked side-by-side with Australians while deployed, they are usually pretty good characters. Likewise, a couple of my current pre-nursing Australian students are top notch. Sure, there's always a few exceptions but the OP is way out of line (even if an attempt at humor).Dec 16, 2011 at 9:31 pm #1813138

I'm not sure I get it…..but I THINK it's the inside joke angle.
Judging by the Aussies' responses, they don't seem worked up! They've played along – quite well, I might add!!!
This will be offensive to (I feel) the majority who read this (esp newbies). I love it when we don't take ourselves too seriously though.Dec 17, 2011 at 8:21 am #1813234

"Man in Black: You've made your decision then?
Vizzini: Not remotely. Because iocane comes from Australia, as everyone knows, and Australia is entirely peopled with criminals, and criminals are used to having people not trust them, as you are not trusted by me, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of you.
Man in Black: Truly, you have a dizzying intellect.
Vizzini: Wait till I get going! Now, where was I?
Man in Black: Australia.
Vizzini: Yes, Australia. And you must have suspected I would have known the powder's origin, so I can clearly not choose the wine in front of me."Dec 17, 2011 at 8:24 am #1813235

If we could get Roger C. to set up a competition between the Blokes and the Yanks in February, say in the Red Center 100 Km west of Alice Springs, we would learn the truth. We would compete in 4 categories:
1) Rugby match
2) Desert survival
3) Polite tenacious fist fighting (re: Galipoli)
4) Power beer drinking
My prediction: Blokes 4-Yanks 0
We Yanks are wimps compared to the Aussies.Dec 17, 2011 at 9:09 am #1813246

I have rarely met an Australian on vacation anywhere in the world who wasn't on an extended walkabout for 6 months or more. This struck me as a vastly superior practice compared to our Puritan-derived only-2-weeks-a-year vacation standards.
Also, their flag is the New Zealand flag plus two stars and Kiwis are just cool people.
And they have more synonyms for "vomit" than any other Anglophone peoples.Dec 17, 2011 at 12:13 pm #1813295

Yes we are inferior to the people of the great USA and we like you to think that.
We only know about the GFC because we read the the rest of the world and especially the US has a GFC.
>Australia is entirely peopled with criminals.
I must object to calling us criminals, we are convicts not criminals.
