If you get the spiders, snakes, and drop bears drunk, are they less likely to attack you?
 
2013-11-19 08:23:40 PM
Or some combination of the two.

From a land with exploding trees, I'm not the least bit surprised.

I like to muddy the stats by feeding alcohol to the wildlife.

Drunk kangaroos are piss funny to watch.

You're not a HARD C*NT until you drank your cranial capacity in alcohol in the land down under.

A study showed that Drop Bears don't attack Australians, since they're repelled by Vegemite and Aussie accents. You're on your own with bunyips though...

The other seven were killed by drunken spiders.

If you had to hear Edelweiss over and over again, you'd turn to drinking as well.

Drop Bears are actually zombie koalas, and they eat brains. This is why they don't eat Australians.  This is also why young Australians drink so much - it is a race to get rid of your brain as quickly as possible before a drop bear gets you.

Society would be better off if marijuana were the legal drug, not alcohol.

But of course, alcohol is not a drug, it's a beverage.

1 in 8 UNDER age 25!!!!   Over age 25 they have adapted to the consumption of beverages and are the superior breed of Aussies, and several are good friends of mine.

The council's executive director, Gino Vumbaca, says the community is at breaking point, and he believes it is time governments stood up to the alcohol industry.

Don't say that. The government will just institute more sin taxes.

Perhaps it's time for a "don't be such a farkhead" advertising campaign?

OK, it may move a little slower than it used to, but it's still quite dangerous.

It's like antibiotics though. You don't stop taking them just because the symptoms go away.

They need more firearms.  That'd trim down the alcohol-related deaths.

Other causes of death in Australia:
1. Sleeping while your bed is burning
2. Stingrays
3. Getting Thunderstruck
4. Mel Gibson
5. Kangaroo Poisoning
6. Outback Steakhouse choking
7. The ghost of Paul Hogan

One in four Australians reported being a victim of alcohol-related verbal abuse.

Sounds pretty serious.

Met a few young Australians while traveling this year. They told me their favourite pass time was getting drunk then trying to run over bush chooks with their utes.

Someone tell the Austrians to come get Arnold. He sucks, and you need to take him back.

That statistic doesn't seem unreasonable. Young people mostly die of things that are tragic and often completely avoidable. Alcohol helps people make ill-fated decisions, also known as the "hold my Fosters and watch this" syndrome.

Sadly enough, it's been done.

"If you drink and drive, you're a bloody idiot" was a real slogan a few years ago. And a recent workplace safety campaign used the rather bluntly evocative slogan "Don't die". Yet we still don't get the point.

Probably because we're so farking drunk all the time. It's the only way to dull the terror of knowing you'll be killed by something venomous the instant you sit down to take a shiat somewhere. ;)

A week-long party of booze and sex. I remember my schoolies week - sleep in until about 10 or 11, walk to the beach for a swim, lunch, spend the afternoon in the beergarden at the Broadbeach hotel (now gone, sadly), more swim, dinner (if anyone could be bothered cooking), party, more drinking/sex, stagger home, sleep, repeat.

/what a waste of a week

I was rather partial to this campaign.

As an aside, I would like to ask all you foreigners to stop making jokes about Australia and dangerous animals. I have only been bitten by a venomous spider once every 13 years and I have never died from it.
