    Icon5 Name Change

    Do you think we should change the names of South Australia and Western Australia?
    They seem quite boring to me

    I was thinking Bradman for Sth Aust. I know he was born in NSW but he died and lived most of his life in SA. I have no idea for WA
    You know it makes sense.

    Having the Australian regions named like that helps Australian children learn the points of the compass easier!

    Broganville would be more appropriate for South Australia.

    All states should be named relative to Victoria. I.e Tasmania should become South Australia and so on.

    I propose we call New South Wales Mexico, like many Mexicans, they all end up here.

    At my last job, we were sitting at out table for lunch and virtually all but a few they had all come from New South Wales (that's including the Sctosman who lived in Sydney for 12 years and moved up here).

    Their state must be pretty crap.

    l always found it funny that the black ranger was actually black....and the yellow ranger was chinese.....and that the white ranger was the one that was superior and more powerful than all the rest of them......suspicious if you ask me.

    regardless, Zordon the big blue talking head in the tube gets my vote.
