Sure, in other countries you complain about abject poverty, drone strikes or forms of oppression; while we whinge about mediocre 3G coverage, slow internet speeds and whether we should take superannuation to 13% or 15%. But you really don't know how hard it is here, truly.
    they don't have a price on carbon, they just don't know what it's like here

    well except for all those other countries that do
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Never been but it seems like a great place to live. Similar to the UK culturally except more active and with better weather.

    Does come across as pretty racist, though.

    There aren't that many racists here. The worst I've experienced is casual racism or bogans.

    Spiders, too hot, friendly but with limited vocabulary, don't know what football is. Nice seas, but with lots of killer stuff in it, I got stabbed by a weaver fish once in Sandy Bay, that was enough for me.
    Do I contradict myself?

    Australians are a contradiction

    I feel they should all be arrogant, obnoxious imbeciles, although every single one I have ever met has struck me as being friendly, likeable and generous - possibly says more about me than them

    ....... and for the avoidance of doubt I've never met benchy - he, I am told is the exception that proves the rule - which rule that is I have never been told though
