Everything that nature and humanity throws at them, and yet Queenslanders still exist. Why or for what purpose, no one knows.

I know "octopi" has become accepted (against all etymological sense), but I prefer the term "octopodes."

It makes me sound kinda smart. Or, if not smart, it makes me sound Greek. Or, if not Greek, it makes me sound like a philhellene.

What do you expect? The Allies using all kinds of bombs there during WWII, the Germans and their scorched earth earf policy.... I mean, come on, leaving the environment in that state will cause mutations like the spiders, crocs and Ah-nold.....

Basically vermin killer. When you see a house that's "bagged" for fumigation, this stuff is frequently used.

Also has a bad habit of self-igniting in it's pure form.

There are few poisonous snakes in XXXX, the explanation for this being that "most of them have been eaten by the spiders".

There once was a fellow from Australia
Who painted his ass like a dahlia.

Likewise the design.
But the aroma...oooh, that was a failure.

FIL used to use that stuff to kill off prairie dogs on his ranch in Texas.
water in hole to activate the pellets, drop in some pellets, fill in the opening, instant rodent gas chamber

stuff stinks like hell.

Now they have a much more fun method. Welding gasses into hole, spark ignitor, boom
flying rodent carcasses.
it gets fun when you way underestimate the amount of gas you have put into the hole.
Fun and dusty.
100 yards away.
Big boom.

Well to be fair: if you were a continent and had to put up with Australians you might have a thing against humanity too.

It's not that bad:

1. Don't pick up spiders.
2. Don't pick up snakes.
3. Don't pick up colorful octopi.
4. Don't swim in the sea or rivers in the north half of Australia without a stinger suit (IIRC it's basically a nylon body stocking) between November and June.
5. Don't dangle your feet in the rivers and lakes in the north half of Australia.

Most people manage this just fine. The real hassle is getting people to swim within flags marking rip-tides.

I've always liked the octopi variant, but seeing how common it's become, I think I'll switch to octopussen to liven things back up a bit.

I've lived down here (Perth area) for 3 or 4 months now, and to be honest, the only deadly creatures I've seen have been in zoos. The worst experience I've had (aside from the dropbears... *shudder*) would be walking in the bush and seeing a bobtail lizard (or 2) and thinking it's a snake. I was also attacked by a magpie a few months ago. In fact, just today, up in the Perth Hills, I saw a Western Grey Kangaroo in the bush, standing completely still (which was good, since I got photos). There were also some echidna burrows. The fauna here is more afraid of us than we are of it. Considering that the Europeans introduced rabbits, foxes, dogs, cats and Cane Toads, I don't blame them.

Why to conquer new worlds in the name of Mother Earth of course. Mother Earth isn't the peaceful serine figure hippies like to portray her, she's a power craven woman who will refine Queenslanders into her perfect tools of war like a blacksmith who beats a billet of iron and smothers it in the hot coals before it become a weapon. When the day comes when we finally break free from her after thousands of years of battering us with hurricanes, tsunamis, volcanoes, poisonous animals and meteors, Queenslanders will be the spearhead of our conquest fleet that will remake habitable planets into her image and hollow out the planets we can't change.

The creepy thing about the Azaria Chamberlain death is the way animals track young prey.

Have you ever been to a zoo and watched the predators watch babies and little children? Big cats just immediately shift into predation mode when a kid gets close.

That dingo might have watched the mother and the baby from a distance for quite a while. Then closed in when the mother left the kid unattended.

The dingo might have been out scavenging and just came upon the baby but who knows.
