You don't go to Australia for the interior, where Mother Nature's cousin, Satan, lives. You go for the beaches.

But don't go into the water.

Box jellyfish
Great whites
Tiger sharks
Shark Tigers
Gatorfish
Cthulhu
Mermaids with guns
Giant swimming spiders
etc.

Agreed, but map shows that silos are basically around coastal areas. And a surprising number of people do a circumnavigation of Oz. Bucket list thing for some

So, if they were to exile Banksy to Australia, his stuff would become truly monumental?

They tried once, he stuck to the big cities like anyone else with taste.

It should be noted that Australia is so farking big that some of those "coastal areas" are hundreds of miles inland. But most of the interior is too dry to grow grain.

And us Aussies consider circumnavigating the country to be a bucket list thing... in the sense that you try it with your partner you'll probably kill each other.

They're going to regret those when they get old and start sagging.

Iowa is a substantial improvement from Nebraska and western Illinois.

It's pointy on top and stores grain. Close enough for Cult 45.

Australia is the reason for burnt sienna.

This text is now purple: Iowa is a substantial improvement from Nebraska and western Illinois.


And also not particularly flat. It's almost all undulating hills. Kansas on the other hand...

I don't have the balls to do a Priscilla, Queen of the Desert trek through the interior. There's no way a car would make it from one side of the country to the other without breaking down or me getting mugged by a kangaroo.

It's a sunburnt country and a land of sweeping plains, Subby.  It just sounds stupid when you get it wrong.

Incredible art: Australia's Guido van Helten is painting this Iowa silo with a wrap-around mural

That's funny you would reference Iowa, subby, because they came to Fort Dodge, Iowa and did one

That's pretty cool. Gives a better idea of how much work goes into a mural that size. Thanks
