Australia: The Land Where Everything IS Trying to Kill You


THAT’S right everyone- of course I would do an Australian themed Holy Roman Party. Or should I say HOLY AUSTRALIAN PARTY! Australia is the land of Dangerous Animals, dangerous weather, and dangerous women! Our cemeteries are so full cause everyone is dying to get in them! It’s a land where most of the people believe that centuries of injustice to the aboriginal peoples can be wiped away by a little apology!

Oh, and by the by, Australia’s military record is pretty good too! You would expect people from a land where the weather, women and animals are so dangerous to be pretty decent shots- and hardy! Aussies and New Zealanders paired together in World War One creating one of the world’s most iconic and instantly recognised acronyms- ANZAC. Australia is proud (and very defensive) of its ANZAC tradition- so fine travellers, when you get to Australia don’t mention that most of our troops in WW1 were aggressive and violent thieves and brawlers, even though they most certainly were!











Although Australians love to break the rules, these are some that cannot be broken in this thread:

1.Don’t be a flamin Galah (look this up if necessary)! No Flaming

2.Trolls were left behind in Europe due to the lack of space on the convict ships. No Trolling

3.Fishing is one of Australia’s prime industries, we just don’t like competition. No Baiting

4.We really tire of hearing how we are all descended from convicts- so don’t tell us more then once a week! No double posting unless a week has passed

5.Only the golden oldies still love a nice tin of heavily processed meat! No Spam

6.We landed on Australia because we stole rule 6.

7.And then once released we went and stole rule 7.

8.Here in Aussie, a bit of stupidity- like trying to tickle a brown snake, can get you killed. No Stupidity! But the long hot days need a bit of humour to help them pass. Silliness, on the other hand, is allowed

Actually, that is how it worked in every election up to this one.

One won, the other lost, then the parties join hands and worked together for the good of the nation.

In this instance, the Donald was the victor. Hillary was the losing candidate, and nobody is interested in working together. That is what I find disturbing.

As the Australian nation is totally reliant upon the US both for Trade and defence- i find some of the things happening truely abhorrent. What i think many people dont fully comprehend is that what happens in the US directly and massively impacts upon the rest of the world due to its super-power status. But anyway, as an Australian with no voice in US affairs- i cant really have a true opinion- i can only work towards my ideology in my own nation through the democratic process.

But i do sense a growing power in the 'Far Right' that worries me to no end...

Think it was from back in AoKH someone made an OT thread. Of course everyone on the forums then was 13 years old so almost certainly it was awful.

I rather like the edit to the latest spambot.

Welcome back, Drak.

The spambiots are getting clever. Still no better in language usage, but they are giving incredibly erotic ideas with how they misform the English language. I just go where the advert leads...

Or maybe they should be rejoicing, since they're no longer connected to New Zealand. Welcome back Drak!

If you've been fine before now, you'll be fine again. Just work harder.

I've applied to go back to uni and do a masters in Toxicology actually. I'll know in a few weeks

Good luck.

I know a few good poisoners. Shall I have them look you up and share their art?

The extent of my knowledge of toxicology is that I watched an Alice Cooper music video.

That, and Mithridates of course.

I've simultaneously found my masters harder and easier than undergrad. Still got my project to go though, that should be fun.

So I haven't been on in like many years. I don't think I've missed much apart from some troublemakers before that I'm sure finally got banned. lol

Huh, I still live in Brum. I'm actually applying to do a masters for next year too!

You in a house or halls? And/or not bothered to join the archery club?

Nah, I decided two clubs would be too hard to keep up with, and I've been fencing far longer than archery and I let my fencing go a lot at NTU. I'm currently living in a house close to uni.

Assuming you go back, you'll actually get to use the sports centre they still haven't finished. I first heard about that like 5 years ago nearly in my first year when I came up for a BUCs match and its still not done. I'm fairly annoyed about it.

I get regular updates about how it gets pushed back from friends and my girlfriend who now works for the postgraduate office. It's hilarious.
