That's called hubris, my friend.

After being rudely ignored in the random music thread, I came here to get my 'fair dinkum' fix and again am leaving a disappointed man. For shame, Australians. For shame

nice idea for a thread btw Cobl
For some reason, I thought you were American.

Now it doesn't surprise me that you hate the idea of an American film version of Stieg Larsson's trilogy.

I made friends with two Australians on the tour. They did Foxboro and East Rutherford with me and now we are Facebook friends.

it's no coincidence that they've sucked at every sport except "darts" ever since, either.

I lived in Melbs for 5 years and will be going back there to live after 2011, which is going to be great. I believe Victoria has it all, you've got the great cosmopolitan city, beautiful beaches like Torquay, stunning rainforest up near Dandenong, farmlands in Gippsland, awesome bushland and walks in the Grampains, the gorgeous Great Oceans Road, snow in the mountains and the spa/mineral springs country around Daylesford!

Its got everything! hahaha I've visited all those places, and also love its only 8 ours from Adelaide and Sydney and two from Tassie. Best spot ever!!
yeah i have to say it's an awesome state to live in. and i haven't even been to a number of those places.

don't forget the shit farm in Werribee

This is correct.


I agree that Victoria really does have a lot of good sights within fairly easy driving distance, the Great Ocean Road isn't too far from me. What we don't have is enough big things. Big Merino might be here

We are a classy folk.


I love using Oz words like Strewth and Crikey and Stone the Crows, that sort of thing.

Election will be interesting. Anyone but the Liberals is again my line, and am aghast at how poorly Labor have marketed themselves to voters this campaign, just abysmal. And it's a shame because I couldn't imagine a better representative of my country than Gillard, she's a star, with an ideology that is generally identical to mine, but this election campaign seems disasterous. The fact that someone as atrocious as Abbott is firming in polls as an increasingly preferred prime minister is simply nauseating. Will be hard to forgive my fellow countrymen and women if they let the Liberals lead this country again. We stagnated and become shite under Howard, and under Rudd our heart was in a better place but our policies were wayward and ill-implemented.
The Australian Sex Party are actually worth checking out, they have some pretty appealing policies, might consider throwing a vote their way in the Senate.

Australia 2022 will be huge, and bigger than Sydney 2000. Though I do fear that the USA 2022 bid will be particularly difficult to defeat. They are guaranteed to host a fantastic tournament with their incredible infrastructure and brilliance at hosting the '94 World Cup.

Aussie TV shows. Don't tend to watch much TV, but I keep meaning to get a DvD of City Homicide, looks awesome, and I've occasionally seen scenes being filmed in areas of Melbourne which is kinda cool.

Love this city... love Melbourne
