I keep noticing this... Is it because we are relatively peaceful and need to understand what it was like for others who have lived with centuries of war? Or just that Aussies are the worlds most geeky people?

Actually, nietsche, it is due to little understood scientific principles involving genetics, anti-podal magnetism and democratic socialism social engineering. Not even Australian scientists can quantify it and it just plain gives the willies to scientists from the rest of the world, especially those from countries that don't live their lives with their heads pointed galacticaly South. It has been theorised that the penchant for Australians and New Zealanders to butcher vowels in the English language, fight at the drop of a beer and have a strange predilection for sheep is due to iron ions in a specific location in the brain being acted upon by the Earth's magnetic sphere.

The dire prediction of this particular therory is that when the next reversal of the magnectic poles occurs, which could happen any day in the next 10,000 years and is actually over due to occur, all the Ozzies and Kiwis will suddenly begin to act like prim and proper poms and their northern Anglo bretheren will rapidly devolve into haka chanting tribes. Much to the natural horror and indignation of the Maori people, of couse, but this has been extrapolated from the effects of the internet and YouTube pirate submissions already downloaded and stored on millions of hard drives.

This rather off the wall theory has been derided by the scientific community, not so much on it's principles, but wild eyed fear of Canadians, Americans and Britons suddenly become Ozzie-fied and ANZACs turning into Essex fags.

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

I thought it was because our crappers flushed the other way down here, oh and the 'fight at the drop of a beer ' theory as well.

Beer, my precious.

ANZAC = sacred

I'm another one, standing, counted and playing.

Oh, and if they flush a different way in the southern hemi, do they go straight down with no rotation at the equator? And at the South pole it should just go round and round, never going down

Is your name not Bruce? Must be quite confusing... (tell me you've seen the Monty sketch!)

Though the one on Australian wines is even more hilarious ("The Château Louis Saint Wogga Wogga is a heavy wine; it is particularly suited for hand-to-hand combat.")

Good lord, Man!

Does this mean that as a North American, already too close to hockey-stick bearing barbarians, and with a bent towards beer with a specific gravity yielding an alcohol percentage of 8.1-10.5%, that at any moment I could convert from my semi-peaceful gaming ways to some sort of Online Ranting, Football Hooligan, fully prepared to find out where my opponents live and go there to rape thier dog, shoot thier garbage, and throw thier wife all over the front lawn?

Is there no hope? If this were to happen to all Americans, the chances of anything less than total Armegeddon would be slim, indeed! I've got 3 guns, and I don't even hunt! Imagine the ramifications!

'The horror...the horror..'

Hey I live near Wagga Wagga ... they make some very nice wines there too.
