It's also the only place on earth where poisonous snakes outnumber nonpoisonous.



Even the Currency has pictures of things that could kill you

One side has a ruthless, endangered, poisonous creature, the other side has a picture of a platypus.

Sometimes perth/australia is called a two speed economy. There are those that are directly benefitting from the gov't fervently selling our natural resources, then there's the rest of us. The problem is, the huge demand created by the tradesmen on hugely inflated wages means that the rest of us get cornholed by high living prices.



Our wages are about double what you'd get in the US, yes

But our living costs are more than double

The buying power is therefore less



Ferds and Holdens you say? Alrighty then.

I like the vauxhall idea. People started chev badging LS1 commodores, then it's spread like wildfire to the point that 3800 and cadillac V6'd commodores are getting the chev badge treatment.



Get a ford f6 sedan/ute anyway, dohc 24v GT35 straight six superiority is definitely what's up. They've got 2JZ levels of indestructibility and you can take pride in the fact that it's a purely australian engine and chassis, instead of some global platform spin-off with an LSsomething.

Yeah, looking at that. I love the front of it, but the modular bed area makes it look like any other truck on the road I'm much more fond of the lines on the Maloo. But I have to admit that Barra 310T looks monstrous! a 4.0L I6 with a GT35 from the factory, so not only does your wildlife try to kill you, but your automakers do as well. And I'm jelly

ill just post up the important part


'Stoned wallabies make crop circles'



Wallabies have been observed acting strangely in poppy fields



Australian wallabies are eating opium poppies and creating crop circles as they hop around "as high as a kite", a government official has said.


sks to show you exactly how retarded they are about pricing, they proved here recently that it would be cheaper to take an emergency trip(like 1 week notice) from Australia to San Diego, buy Adobe Creative Suite and fly back than it is to purchase it from a store there.
