Gibbo, we only have 2 dangerous spiders here, the Trap Door and the Redback and if you don't annoy them they won't harm you, it's the same with the snakes, but it's those blooming crocs you have to be wary of, a person would have to be a "flaming galah', to stand on a river bank in north QLD as the crocs can leap out of the water very fast at about up to 4 meters and grab you.

By the way Blue Cow ski lodge got it's name from when it was farmers land and they had one cow that loved going up into the snow line every winter and enjoying the cold and that's how Blue Cow Resort got it's name.

We then went fishing at a place in Victoria called Bemm River fishing for bream, never saw so many fish, you could catch one every 3 minutes and very nice to eat. :)

:eek:Oz a spider is a spider to me regardless of its breed:biggrin: Dont like them much i dont:rolleyes:

An Aussie shows signs of nobility when they trace their ancestors right the way back to their dad. :D

I read that joke. I dont know if I have missed anything out in that joke.

I think you might have Benny.

We are not very smart over here but we are very loyal to our mother country.

Did you Know we have the rightful King of England living right here in oz?. But Liz won't give up her throne.

This info as reported on 60 minutes documentary.You'll probably find it on google.

Memory of WW2 Brisbane.

When the American soldiers were stationed in Brisbane they weren't very well liked.

According to the Aussie Diggers the Yanks were overpaid, oversexed and over here.

A huge brawl ensued in Brisbane central station one night between the overbearing Yanks and the brash Aussie's over an Aussie girl with hundreds of Yanks and OZ"S fighting each other with fisticuffs.

Authority's had to turn the fire hoses on em all to break it up.:biggrin:
