Post Ask An Aussie!

Okay Shipheads, as the ships resident Australian (whom they keep locked in the hold, setting him loose from time to time to entertain the crew with shouts of "Crikey!" and "Cloaca!"), I wanted to start this thread for those who have ever wanted to find out a bit more about Australia, or simply wanted a crazy Aussie's opinion on any number of different subjects (I do this because every time I go on Xbox Live, I get inundated with all manner of silly/strange questions about Australia. Thought I'd get them out of the way here on the forums).

So anybody got a question that they want to... "Ask An Aussie"?

If by Pulse, you mean Australia, and Cocoon, you mean England, and are referring to how many moons ago, we, as convicts were cast out of Cocoon (England) to the world below, Pulse (Australia) <The Land Downunder>, then yes, we use to hate them. However, we no longer hate our bad teeth brethren like we use to, instead, we pity them and their country. It's small, wet, and cold most of the year, while down here, it's warm, sunny and full of wide open spaces.

I hope this answers your question (or confuses you further. I have a feeling I may have misinterpreted the question, as I am want to do from time to time).

If I missed the point, please re-submit your question using smaller words so my brain can process it, lol!

My question is if you stand on top of Uluru (that big ass rock down under) and piss off of the top of it, does is spiral down in a counterclockwise pattern? And if you happen to hit a 'Roo, does it wait till you get to the ground to box you, or hops up to meet you in the middle?

Funnily enough, it's also full of dangerous and rather large creatures, while England really isn't all that menacing in that department.





I think we just solved Final Fantasy XIII. This is a game about the future...
