    Yeah.

    But they managed to parlay all that, and four drunken blokes in a pub with a banjo, into an American hit song.

    Now if they elect someone as unfit as the guy WE did, as Head of State...don't know if the PM is chosen by direct election, or what...but if they choose him because of PIGMENTATION, against all evidence that he's a drug-addled MORON...they deserve what they get.

    I have only met a few Aussies, but, everone one of them was super-cool.

    Never been to Australia, but, I had a dream I visited...and did not want to come back. I would likely love to get lost in parts of the Outback. And, if I had money, I could spend me a good deal of time around the Reefs.

    Don't know if this is true of most, but, one of my Aussie friends, who lived in an older home, had a pet Gecko he let loose in the house. Said they are perfect at taking care of small insects, mosquitos, and what not.

    Kept their cat, "Sinbad" entertained, as well.....

    Absolutely incorrect. My partner is Aboriginal and I have never heard of them eating cats. We have one culture, nothing like the USA I was actually surprised that only a few miles from the cities you could hear the banjo's playing Australia is much more homogeneous than the US

    I will say, you can tell city folk from country folk, but you can't tell what area or what state they come from generally.

    And they have Aborigines, when they elect one president like the USA did, THEN it will be interesting.
    The USA elected an Aboriginal, wow, what Native American Nation was he from, when did this happen, what did Barack say about it, when where, oh my god this is big news, holly crap.

    How long have we had a president, why wasn't I told, why wasn't anyone told, wow, holy crap, this is bigger news than the statement that the US has a Native American as the president.
