Deep Contact: had98c: pacochu: Lights also wrap around the tree in the opposite direction down there too.

The very first thing I did when I got to Australia was flush a toilet to see if the reverse swirl thing was true. It made for a very disappointing start to my trip.

You have to use a toilet made in Austria for that to work.


I love the episode where Stewie got "booted" for insulting the Austrians about that.

Tomji: is it considered funny to mix up Australia and Austria? I just find it retarded and I am never fully sure if the mix up is intentional or the poster is really mentally only able to process 3-5 different countries.


I have to believe that you are merely trolling the headline in reverse. Otherwise I weep for humanity.

This. Could we get a little less low-brow around Fark? I miss the good ole' days of Fark where getting the joke actually took some inside knowledge; or, at very least, a 9th grade vocabulary.

You are off from the "good old days" by about 5 years. Just saying.

The Swiss are not noted for their sense of humor. Living that close to the North Pole, they require all their energy just to survive.

Duck_of_Doom: Tomji And since I am swiss and I had countless discussions with americans where they ask me "all about sweden" ... I have to believe it's not intentional and just sad...
That said, I've visited sweden and know a bit about it... but after the second reminder that I am swiss and not swedish - I just give up.

That one's easy. You're chocolate, not meatballs.  Watches, not Ikea.

One of my favourite weather stories is about a man near the US-Canada border (or was it the Canada-US border?) who dug a hole to plant a tree. A tornado picked up a tree on the way across the border and dropped it right in the hole. Ta-da!

The Lord tornado giveth and the Lord tornado taketh away.

I got that from a Canadian weather calendar with a weather story each day of the year. I can't remember which way the tornado went--from Canada to the US or from US to Canada, but I believe the State was New York and the Province was Ontario.

I also had a couple of astronomy calendars but they got dull. A new set of dots every month. Whee-ha! I could hardly wait. It was like an Advent calendar without the chocolate.

And they don't even connect to make a shovel and pail like connect-a-dots.
 
2012-11-26 03:35:03 PM
Please. Everybody knows that Austria is on the bottom of the earth. Therefore the trees would have fallen down towards the sky and not up towards the garden.

Down under they celebrate Christmas in the dread heat of Summer, around the backyard barbie and the swimming pool.

People did that in some of the American textbooks used in Canadian schools back when I was young. There were a lot of confused kids in some schools, who wondered why the illustration for Summer and Winter were the same. They just put it down to a printer's error. Which shows that Americans are not the only people who don't know much about geography.

The moral is clear enough: NEVER BUY TEXTBOOKS FROM FLORIDA.

If Republican or conservative, you can change that to: NEVER BUY TEXTBOOKS FROM CALIFORNIA.

Caveat emptor.

Dirge auto-comment: "Even if you're one of us, you'd better not make trouble!"

My Argonian: "Look muscle-head, I am the feckin' GUILD MASTER! I am your BOSS! What don't you get?"
