They are below the equator. When we have summer, they have winter. When we have fall, they have spring. It has to do with the way that the earth wobbles.

Australia is south of the equator, so thermometers work in reverse: instead of measuring how warm it is, they measure how cold it isn't.

OR IT JUST MEANS THAT YOU'RE OLD AND HAVE CAPS LOCK ON. AT WHICH POINT YOU DON'T SOUND ANGRY, YOU SOUND DEAF. WHAT DO YOU HAVE AGAINST DEAF PEOPLE? WHY DO YOU HATE SO MUCH? YOU TAKE THAT BACK OR I WILL KICK YOUR ASS! NOW I'M DEPRESSED BECAUSE THE ALL CAPS MAKES IT HARD FOR ME TO TELL WHICH EMOTION I'M FEELING ANYMORE. I NEED A HUG.

Sargun: cryinoutloud: FlashHarry: The Australian city of Sydney is experiencing its hottest day on record, with temperatures reaching nearly 46C.

I JUST went and did that before I came in here. First I started thinking that I needed to multiply it by 2.2--no, that's not right. Find calculator....

Their beds are only burning because Australians are so sexy, the beds literally catch on fire. More beds are sold in Australia than anywhere in the world. The government tells them to stop having sex, stop sleeping in the nude, but no, they will not. They're sexy.

Australia has a massive obesity problem.


Wait. A massive problem with obesity or a problem with massive obesity?

No, it's because of the singular polarity of the earth's rays is 180 degrees from ours, magnified by the fact their shiatty air consists of nearly 80% nitrogen. The reason why is because of the Sahara Dessert is too much sand and not enough trees and vegetation, so the natural flatulence of a nearly all-beef diet by the locals creates it's own little biodome of funk and heat.

Like a big-ass Dutch Oven.
