Australia: The Land Where Everything IS Trying to Kill You


THATíS 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! Itís 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, Australiaís 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 worldís 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 donít 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.Donít 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 Australiaís prime industries, we just donít like competition. No Baiting

4.We really tire of hearing how we are all descended from convicts- so donít 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

Given the Australian theme (of which I of course heartily approve), it seems an appropriate time to recognise also its role in respect of rule 6:

hmm. Thanks Jax and Terikel.

But anyway.

2017: Do you think it will be as bad as 2016 was?

I like the theme.

2017 has a lot of different things going for and against it. I guess we'll all have to find out together.

By the way, on Rule 4, it should be "unless a week has passed".

Edit: it's good of Jax to join us, otherwise it'd be a staff-only party.

Thanks- and fixed.

Well i see that overnight the US House of Reps has started to repeal Obamacare so it looks like 2017 will be alot worse for some people.:/

But he isnt staff at the moment so it is a bit of a grey area.

Ouch- sucks to hear Jax. TBH, I am kinda with you there. Something gives me a bad feeling about 2017. I kinda hope things start looking up soon though.

Have a nice trip, and don't get too drunk sample too much of the local beverages.

In the spirit of this thread, I should point out that it's Australia Day today.

I am observing Australia's national day in time-honored fashion and in accordance with our traditions. Hic

Speaking as someone experiencing the show firsthand, amusement and resignation. I pass my time proclaiming feigned support and love for the Trumperator just to piss off the liberals and feminists that populate my social circle

Some of these spambots are quite amusing.

Back to the thread.

Trump? Well, he seems to be delivering on his campaign promises, for better or worse. That makes him not a politician.

He is a bit thin-skinned and with too big a mouth for my tastes, but he does seem to do as he says, which I find refreshing for somebody in Washington. Of course the emdia treats him like a pariah, and the Democrats were whining and protesting before he even got into office, so I can't really show any sympathy for them. Let the man make mistakes then jump all over him. What they are doing now makes them seem like pantywaist whining sore losers. Donald won, Hillary lost, now get over it and come together as a country again.

Are we really going to bring that discussion in here. I thought this was the party thread, not a political piss house.
