HAHAHA! My favorite is the thief of 42 Kg of Mayo (that's over 90 lbs). Yuck!

:D I snorted coffee at about "start a bastard" and now I'm doubled over, but wondering if I have ever meat an ugly Austrelian.

Apparently this possum snuck into a bakery at night and ate so much it couldn't manage to run away when the baker came in.

Eric Bana before he was famous. He actually lives down the road from me, no joke.

This one's a bit rough on the old eyes... although she is the 6th richest woman in the world, so she's got that.

Where I live.

Australia looks like an awesome place but man I'd be afraid I'd step on some kind of poisonous animal and die.

Josh, don't you live in Athens? Athens has nothing on the f'd up backwoods people of western NC :)

Ah yes, you got me there. But all I need to do is drive a few miles out of town and I am in the thick of it. North Georgia is pretty much the same as West North Carolina in my summation.

And Tiffany, is that not the American Dream?

Back to Australia, if I lived there I would never work because I would be too fascinated with all the wildlife. I definitely want to visit some day.

I'm actually making plans on moving there, just because the idea of ridding a spider to work seems fascinating.

haha, we don't actually worry or care much about the dangerous stuff, it's not like you see one everyday, (unless you live where the crocs are) but honestly, I can see how it must seem odd for someone who hasn't grown up with them just to tell them, "If you come across a dangerous spider or snake, just go around it."

I lived in Australia for a year when I was younger. We lived next to a "shark infested bay" so I spent countless hours looking over the water, hoping to see a shark. I never saw one, but I never went in the water either.

School was a culture shock because we had to wear a uniform and they still had the strap. The food in the cafeteria was really good though. I still remember the hotdogs. Shook hands with a kangaroo once.

Hot dogs? Aw man, we only ever had pies, sausage rolls and salad sandwiches. Uniforms are SO much better than normal clothes for everyone involved. Were you in Queensland?

We lived in Sydney. What I loved about the school lunches is that we would get an empty paper bag in the morning that had a menu printed on it. You'd check off what you wanted and write your name on the bag and it would come filled with your order at noon. I don't even like hotdogs that much but these ones were awesome and they came in a crusty roll rather than just a soft hotdog bun.

By the end of the year my school mates said I sounded "more Australian" so I guess I was picking up a bit of an accent. I wish I had stayed longer and maybe I would have acquired a full Australian accent instead of my boring Canadian one.

I remember loving Paddle Pops too. Do they still sell those? haha. The mascot was a lion I think.

Yeah, we've still got paddle pops, but they changed the recipe, so they're not what you'd remember.

And the paper bag system, that was pretty damn awesome... Although I'm sure I ate too many chocolate jam donuts in my day. I started in north Qld, but ended up moving to Melb when I was 6. I vividly remember in grade one getting my paper bag one day, but instead of my lunch, there was a cane toad in there!

Also, once, during story time, a carpet python slithered into the classroom behind me, the teacher told us just to "ignore it", and kept reading!

haha. I remember singing the Laugh Kookaburra song every day during the morning assembly. Waltzing Matilda was my favourite song though. Sad to hear about the paddle pops. They were good.

I've heard Melbourne is a really cool city.

Only deadly wildlife around here kills by way of smell. Yum!

My bro-in-law (who's French) brought back some stinky ass cheese from Corsica ... holy shit, talk about pungent.

Manupix

haha! I don't really know Corsican cheese other than by repute ;)

i live in queensland where most of the sharks are. its not like all animals are on the ground next to you and you have to hop around them. you see some now and then but you usually dont have to watch where you're stepping (except in snake season)

The only snakes I've seen since living in aus have been in zoos, but then I've been living in bris/melb CBD so it's not really surprising.

:D yeah - maybe not so nice and evenly spaced, but yeah Fins really are known for being what could be called antisocial everywhere else. Unless their drunk and I might say they are also known for being drunk, so go figure - a natural reaction in the morning to avoid others ;D
