    When will Aussies learn to SHUT UP.

    They don't know when to stop antagonizing anybody who isn't an exact replica of themselves. They actually enjoy being selfish ******. I'm not just referring to the Anglo-Aussies who descend from convicts who started the disease known as boganism. I'm even more furious with the...

    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...
