I Hate Living In Australia

For those who wish they had been born somewhere else, or at least had the means to escape... 394 People

    All I know for certain is

    that the Australian culture is exceptionally boring. Some Australians appear on this forum in a defensive mode and they achieve nothing except proving us true to our word. Freedom or no freedom, elbow room or no elbow room, clear air or no clean air. The reality is: If it...

    Pure Denial

    Whilst I do love Australia in a lot of respects I increasingly find myself despising the banality of the place- the constant dumbing down of humour and news, the inability of Australians to understand that my kids didn’t support the Wallabies, that I don’t delight in boat...
