    Along with Australia being really hot,

    I don't think people realise that Australia can be bloody cold at times, I live north of Sydney and we have had it down to around 6-7 degrees around mornings and nights.

    Best Aussie Pick Up Line Ever:

    An Aussie walks into a pub and takes a seat next to a very attractive woman.. He gives her a quick glance then casually looks at his watch for a moment. The woman notices this and asks, 'Is your date running late?' 'No', he replies,'I just got this state-of the-art watch...

    I live in Adelaide, but I was born

    and raised in QLD. I find the people in Adelaide to be friendlier, but I don't really have any friends down here. Ah well..

    A misogynist, a racist

    and a homophobe walk into a bar. The bartender says, 'what are you having Tony?'

    Purple Liza The Funnel Web Spider And Sparkle

    We have a huge but harmless spider in Australia called a Huntsman. One summer when my daughter was a toddler, a large Huntsman took up residence in the cornice in our living room. We named her, "Sparkle."  She coexisted with us happily in the house until one day she was gone...

    Yesterday I read about the woman Sydney forgot.

    ..Natalie Wood, who lay dead in her home for 8 years, not missed by a soul. The account of her very lonely, austere life had me in tears and hit home a little, I guess. Every life is of value. You can read the article here http://www.smh.com.au/nsw/natalie-wood-the-woman...

    As much as I love to travel, I would much rather see my homeland first, before I go overseas.

    Does anyone have any idea on

    why my iPad takes 8 hours to fully charge, but my phone (iPhone 5C) takes at most an hour? I've been charging my iPad since 2pm, at that point it was at 5% and it's only at 23% now. It's not the cord or anything because I use the same one to charge my phone.

    10 years since the Cronulla riots ,

    it's easy to be disgusted with the racist Australians but let's not forget it all started with the bashing of a junior volunteer lifeguard , both sides represent the minority of dickheads in society , hopefully the proposed ' celebration' doesn't go ahead.

    There is a road between my home and the clinic, where I work. It is a long, straight and has only a single lane each way. It's a fast road, with no traffic lights and has a 90 km speed limit. As you can imagine, one slow car ruins the show for everyone behind and on this day...
