God, I hate The Sun's jingoism - even if the comparison to Brighton and Bondi is tounge in cheek, there'll be thousands of Brit 'tards who read this like it's in-depth journalism.

Interesting little list...but as its been said a highly biased one. While its true I'd much rather have a pint of English beer. But I'd rather spend a week in Australian weather vs English weather. English are very polite when visiting but I'd rather have an Australian watch me back in a fight. As for music I can't believe Midnight Oil hasn't been mentioned. Plus its lead singer is one of the most active musicians in politics. He actually walks the walk instead of saying it the rolling stone interview.

Even though he does look like the guy from the first "where the hills have eyes" movie,

Brendanh: Pints vs Schooners

Yes, schooners are smaller, but you can also order a pint in Australia. Plus, the beer in Australia is served cold.

Aus: 1 | Eng: 0


The true test of a beer is how it tastes at room temperature. Don't believe me? Ask the Germans.

I'm not saying it can't/shouldn't be served cold but sometimes beer is served cold because if it wasn't you probably wouldn't drink it.

Because it tastes like shiat and your taste buds need to be frozen in order to get the swill down.

Ask the Americans about that.

Why does everything always have to be about you lot? This is a jingoistic thread about Poms and 'Roo-f*ckers. Let's keep it that way.

Cassiopeia: Why does everything always have to be about you lot?

That's my line.

If there was a meteorite which was going to smash into the Earth, and a story about same was posted on FARK, people would find a way to blame it on the U.S. and b|tch away. It's the s.o.s., over and over and over...

Radworld4: As for music I can't believe Midnight Oil hasn't been mentioned.

They probably would have been had they released a noteworthy record in the two decades - a single hit 20 years ago doesn't really count... attempting to use any contemporary Australian bands as an example of cultural superiority is a lost cause.

It's like a Scottish person trying to tell you The Proclaimers are hip...or that Welsh band, the fat chick who sang about Fox Mulder and then became a heroin addicted alcoholic?!!?

as a whole Britain has always been fairly nationalistic and patriotic, without the flag waving jingoism

Ever been in England when the Worldcup or Eurocup is on? There are lots of flags waving.

Deceitful cats?

Wtf?

But anyway, be serious. We all know Australia is better.

withnail420: Australian lager is the same as having sex in a boat though (fecking close to water)

That's the shiat we send to you poms because we know it's all you can handle. Come over and try our real beer like Coopers or Cascade.

And for the record people, the schooner is the exact sized glass of beer you can have that will take you to the legal alcohol limit (for Provisional drivers) for driving in Aust, 0.02. 1 per hour for provisional drivers, 2 per hour for full license drivers.

It' OK ,their just preparing themselves to lose the cricket. They often do things like this before an Ashes series in Australia. The Ashes is the traditional name for some big cricket matches between OZ and England.

It also shouldn't be b/w Oz and the UK. Scotland (and N. Ireland) do not play cricket w/ England. Which is actually England and Wales. I figure that England should lose a point or two because they are carrying Wales. It would be like Oz carrying NZ.

"The damned heathens probably don't even have a cricket team!"

They have one, but development of the game has been restricted by the US cricket governing body being incompetent even by the pitiful standards of the ICC.

------------
1950s Lagerphone- The lagerphone is a musical instrument made by nailing beer caps onto a stick. It is not known who invented it, but in the 50s it was popularised by the Heathcote Bushwackers as an alternative to the American wobbleboard.

LOL. Yeah, I'm not sure that qualifies as an 'invention' so much as 'something some bloke made when he was pissed'.

Just on the Aus vs British music thing.. I recently saw Wolfmother (Aus) who were AMAZING, followed soon after by seeing Placebo (UK) who I was horribly disappointed with.

The thing is, I was originally fairly uninterested in seeing Wolfmother, while I was looking forward to Placebo for months.


I saw them last night. That's some good rock and roll.

"TheDogsBollox: It's that day when the Americans give thanks for that dour, puritanical lot we kicked out landing over there, innit?

Yup, and thanks for the food to survive the winter that they got from the natives they then proceeded to all but exterminate.

Well done folks.

Hey, any aussies left on here, what say we all join forces and slag off the yanks? The damned heathens probably don't even have a cricket team!"

Uh-huh.

Nope. You're the one who implied I wouldn't find any American bashing, and I did. I made my initial comment w/out reading the thread. Red herring, much?

Slaxl:
I'm very appreciative of music history, but when it comes to listening to music, I prefer it to be listenable, rather than songs about being pretty vacant, an immature gag to be able to say the word coont on stage.

So you prefer the immaturity of singing about big swinging balls?

Malcom Mclaren just made the worlds first fabricated pop group/boy band.

World's first? And you claim to be appreciative of music history?

I implied no such thing. I implied that even if there wasn't any, you'd still make the same complaint.


I made my initial comment w/out reading the thread.

Thus backing up my initial implication.


Red herring, much?

Yes, you do.

Actually, I was referring to Def Leppard, the band I just slipped in there as a joke. They shouldn't really be on a best of anything list, unless it's "bands that sound like def leppard".

Dr Hemlock

Alsatian == from Alsace, a territory that was disputed between Germany and France for a long long time. I would think "German Shepherd" derives from the breed's origin in that area.
This is assuming my (very poor) dog skillz are correct to believe that alsatians and german shepherds are the same breed?
