Just because I'm Aussie

This may sound corny, but I am proud to be an Aussie, so I have decided to blog about it....

Australia is known as
the land down under, forget about the fact that we started out as a place to store convicts...
it has a BEAUTIFUL outback, bush lands, beaches, coral reefs, sunsets, and scenery. We are the biggest island in the world, and we have the biggest rock.
We are stereotypically known as friendly people (although not all Aussies are) and it is probably a stereotype that I like. I like to think that we are friendly, funny and witty.

One thing I know we like doing is making fun of America, check this video out, it is a bit mean, but truth be told, it made me laugh. I know Americans aren't all this dumb, but this is a bit of fun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYjjynROFuI

(Admittedly, I didn't know all of the answers to these questions either)

We also like to make fun of New Zealand!:

We have some of the most deadly animals in the world, and we are proud of it:

Come to Australia, you might accidentally get killed :)

On a serious note, I know we have had our share of natural disasters, but there was definitely large community spirit in those disasters....

Melbourne Bush fires 2009

QLD floods 2011

There is nothing like Australia: I know this is Cornie but oh wells http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmxfqP401N4

My point is, I love Australia, minus the downsides.  

Love, me
God bless
