    Awesome. I knew the Bicentenial thing from memory, but I had to look up other options, in case you hadn't guessed. :p


    Oh, I never said anything about your Chapter. :p

    But you are different, strictly speaking. You are free, non-convicts. :p

    Why don't Australians fall off the bottom of the Earth? You're all upside down!

    Thanks, mate, but there's no need. I'm not bothering with him anymore. Or any Australians. I'm taking him as the representative for your entire nation!

    Well, maybe not :p

    What is renowned as an Australian delicacy? (For food, of course.)

    how bad is the dropbear problem in Australia?



    And why did Melbourne steal the Grand Prix race from Adelaide.

    Formula one was better in Adelaide.

    Or at least we havent been serious about it since the 1980's...

    Why don't YOU! You are, of course, on the wrong side of the earth.

    Australia has a wide variety of good, quality beers that does not include Fosters. Cascade, for example, is roughly ten times more enjoyable than Fosters. :p

    Well, as Tyi said, Lamingtons are up there. JGOC also mentioned Vegemite - something which I love. It's great, but I'm not sure it qualifies as a delicacy. . . oh, and Pavlova is my personal favourite. Go look it up. A delicious dish. :D

    We've learnt to avoid them by riding kangaroos to our various engagements.

    Melbourne did not steal the Grand Prix. Jeff Kennet stole the Grand Prix. You can have it back if you want, I hate it.

    Hahaha. Curse you! :p

    I can't find a solid number of medals to be handed out, but once I do I'll give an estimate. :)

    Make sure you break it down to each individual Gold, Silver and Bronze. :p






    Does Australia have the most number of athletes from one country in the Melbourne Commonwealth Games? [face_confused]>

    I have no idea. When I find out I'll let you know.

    I found a list of the previous games tally. Australia had 82 gold, 62 silver, 63 bronze with 207 total.

    Given the home advantage, I'm going to say that this time, Australia will get:

    90 gold, 72 silver, 70 bronze with a total of 232 medals.

    I have never endorsed the swill that is sold here in America :p I have a very discriminating palette because I grew up on German beer. Canadian beer isn't bad either...

    Well, the cyclone only affected the north of Australia in Queensland, an area where I have never been to. However, thanks for your kind words. :) My girlfriend's aunt was around that area, but she's all alright.
