    Pretty much, here, in this thread, you ask me, an Aussie, anything you have heard about Australia, and then I reply, answer, etc.

    For example:
    How dangerous is the drop bear menace in Australia?
    VERY DANGEROUS.

    What is your opinion on Abbott's proposed educational reforms, such as the chaplaincy program for public schools?

    Okay, let me see if I can answer all of your questions:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-EL4rGzDPo

    (that is me at the start)

    Pretty horrible at the moment. Some flash flooding, damaging winds, hail and lightning. And it is freezing. A pretty good day in comparison, actually.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cv-2Z1qrrHs

    yes, they are really delicious. LIKE IT SHOULD BE AN ELEMENT IT IS THAT DELICIOUS. (Australian logic)

    A kangaroo is a marsupial that jumps around on two legs and its TAIL! Little known fact. It is also how we choose our Prime Minister, which is why we have such a horrible one currently.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MIv94hTZR1g

    You just got De_Stroyed by a 1.5 year old.

    Also, it is on the bottom of the Earth, and the largest cause of death in Australia is gravity.

    100000 (sourced from http://www.uq.edu.au/news/article/1999/03/australias-spanish-speakers-studied)

    Witchetty grubs is another word for insects and worms. I believe they exist pretty much anywhere, so exportation successful.

    I have two words to this: DOUBLE DISSOLUTION!!!

    I hate the ideas of Tony Abbott's educational reforms, and I really hope a majority of them don't get passed. Some of the more annoying things I am finding about this new budget that he is trying to push through though are the massive hex added to university fees (coming up to about 20%, almost double what it already is) and the deletion of programs such as pension payments and benefits.

    Just to show what I hope happens, Tony Abbott in this video is Demi Lovato (female in the center of the judging panel) and the guy on stage is the general Australian Public and the Media

    The reason we elected an idiot came from a number of reasons.
    1. More than half a million people didn't vote/did a dummy vote
    2. We vote for PM with a kangaroo boxing match
    3. The Labour made a bad name for themselves with Julia Gillard
    4. Tony Abbott backed down on pretty much every promise he made during elections

    Also, just as some Aussy news, L4D2 you can now buy FULL GORE VERSION IN AUSTRALIA!!! (rated R18) here is comparison of what out L4D2 used to look like, to what you see...

    Thank You :D Please continue to post and I will try to answer more frequently

    How many people in Australia are incredibly muscular, have large moustaches, and go shirtless to show of their australia-shaped chest hair?

    Witchetty grubs is a specific (set of) species, native to Australia and a famous bush tucka food. They're the larvae form of the cossid moth, named from the Witchetty bush (another Australian native species) that they love to hang out in.

    They're actually relatively confined to central Australia, definitely not a world wide, or even Australia wide thing.

    Aly, I think we should be asking you questions about Australia.

    Like why do you know so much about Australia?
