    Glad To Have Left Australia!!!!

    After living in the '*** end of the earth' for three years, I am very happy to have left that country. I grew up there and even I can see how downhill both Sydney and Australia have gone since the 1980's. I can sum it by these observations: The cities are too damn expensive to...

    The 'Australian' Hate

    (And Why I hate it) I was born in a really **** part of England. There were robberies, gangs rife, the streets were dangerous and a majority of the muslim people in our town despised us (even though we were BORN there) and so it goes on, and on, and on. Now, I live in sunny WA...

    Music in Australia. Music taste is a very

    personal thing, however, I do believe that the type of music one hears in the environment is a major part of the ambiance. Some music is happy, some is aggressive, some sounds like it comes out of a mental institution. During my time in Australia, all I ever heard was very out...
