Hate to disappoint, But Austria is not down under, Australia is. Austria is in Europe, the headquarters of many things unpleasant in history.

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.


If you've never noticed that meme, you must be as blind as Anne Frank.

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 know, I'm tempted to start up Aussie Brand Ceramics[tm] and make a line of toilets with the jets mounted in reverse.

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.


French, Italian, real German or Swiss German?

I had a co-worker from Brazil who once remarked that his first Christmas in the US was a real revelation, because all of the winter-based Christmas imagery that he'd grown up with suddenly all made sense.

Sure, but how do they keep the angel/star from falling off?
