    OMG (not an aussie) I totally just learned what a drop bear was the other day from someone who went there for a few months.

    I'm really disappointed @Applinator never told me!

    one tries to be polite and can never be certain that said person is either an aussie or, indeed, a kiwi.

    though i was under the misapprehension that a kiwi is a flightless bird.

    just imagine its stephen fry saying it

    A Kiwi is a flightless bird, but also what Aussies call people from New Zealand.

    Just a tip for those in North America - getting Aussie and Kiwis mixed up is taken about as well as mixing up Americans and Canadians.

    Most people not from our part of the world who complain about lag don't know how annoying it can be. I see posts with videos complaining about lag and what I see seems perfectly fine by me - maybe we are just used to it here.

    I haven't tried the drop bear thing, but someone from the states that I used to know got really mad and upset once when I told him that Aussie hamburgers with the lot contain egg & beetroot.
    He was genuinely pissed off, and disconnected from the skype call lol.

    Apparently, hamburgers should only ever consist of meat and cheese. Otherwise you can't get the full flavour ( of grease )

    I was eating in a speciality burger joint (i.e. they put more than just meat & cheese on the burger) and there was one burger which had blackberry jam and egg on it. I asked the server if it was good and he thought the egg was just too weird to put on a burger, he didn't mind the jam though....

    Blackberry jam?? And he didn't think THAT was weird? :D

    I suppose egg is an acquired taste if you're not as Aussie ( and if you ARE one sometimes I guess ) but I couldn't imagine a more boring hamburger than just meat and cheese.
    I also like a slice of pineapple on mine too, alongside that evil egg and beetroot.

    I often read in books or saw it mentioned about putting maple syrup on bacon and scrambled eggs. I always used to balk at it, until one day when I tried it.
    ...... SO DELICIOUS.

    Ah yes. The Aussie mocking of the Kiwi accent and how they say stuff like "six", "fish", and "chips". I worked with a guy from New Zealand and we would get into all sorts of verbal battles about what stuff is called such as thongs/jandels and eskys/chillybins
