How to drink like an Aussie.
You’re good. No one can tell. You’re a social drinker. Sophisticated. Adult.   These hilarious photographs, dated between 1863 and 1868, are believed to be propaganda from a New South Wales temperance group. While some might argue they’re a bit sensational, I’d say that for a certain type of drunk, they’re deadly accurate (Have drunks changed much since the mid 19th century? No, they just have Twitter now). They coincide with the 1866 “Drunkard’...

You know you're from South Australia when...   #adelaide   #SA  
1. Vili’s meat pies, FruChocs and Farmers Union Iced Coffee are essential parts of your diet. 

Yes, South Australia is home to fine food and great wine, but any South Aussie will gladly admit to loving all things Vili’s, those delicious things made here called FruChocs and iced coffee. But it can’t just be any iced coffee…it has to be Farmers Union!
[...]
8. Bottles and cans need to be kept not just thrown away…after all, they’re worth 10-cents each if taken to a deposit centre.
[...]
16. You pronounce pool, school and graph correctly.

17. Magic Mountain was the coolest place on the planet. 

Today it’s known as The Beachouse, but up until 2004 the theme park at Glenelg was called Magic Mountain. Kids, and those young at heart, flocked to the theme park for its water slides, carousel and arcade games. It was demolished in 2004 and replaced by The Beachouse in 2006.

It's worth it.  In other states there are empty cans and bottles littering roadsides and public spaces.  If the purchaser of the bottled product doesn't want to return it for the deposit there are plenty of other people lining up to do that for them to get the deposit.  The scouts get a lot of money from bottle runs, and other kids can also get some extra pocket money from collecting cans and bottles.  Homeless people go through bins to get the recyclables that others through away so landfills are are not the end destination.  There are many benefits that come from such schemes.  Everyone wins.

South Australia's X Files: Part 1 - Family car attacked by UFO, baffling crop circles
THE Knowles family set out from Perth for Melbourne, in the hope of finding new jobs. Instead, a terrifying and violent 90-minute encounter with a UFO on the Nullarbor Plain left them so shaken they turned around and headed home.

The family claim the glowing UFO, shaped like an egg in an eggcup, chased and even lifted their car off the road, dropping it so heavily a tyre burst.

If I was ever to leave the United States for another country, it would be Australia. I just love the scenery, and the people I have met from the country.

Vinegar water is great and a container of Bicarb of soda, opened and shoved somewhere in the back absorbs smells like ...well old mouldy stuff that lives in the back of the fridge before you find it. Use a cloth with vanilla essence on it for a return to nice smelling fridge after you get rid of the mouldy cheese.

This is something I'll never understand.
Once these beautiful forests are gone for the sake of the almighty dollar - they are gone forever.
Nothing we can do, even if the human race survives for another millennia will ever bring them back.
Shame Abbott shame!

Not my normal footshot. This one shows that shoes are required (even if they are your best town shoes!) in the rocky hills around Tennant Creek in the NT where the ground is very rough and the spinifex provides little relief.

Tennant Creek is in Warumungu country and the local area is called Partta - 'hard ground'. I reckon!

I was on the hill to get a view of the full moon rise on Friday 13 June 2014. A few hill kangaroos seemed to find the goings to their liking.

The buildings below are a low-security work camp for Aboriginal people - better than being in jail in Alice Springs or Darwin, away from the families. Anglo-Australia habitually imprisons First Peoples at very high rates.

I was in Tennant Creek to bear witness at the Federal court case where Warlmanpa people are opposing the Commonwealth of Australia's attempt to impose a radioactive waste facility at Muckaty station, which is Warlmanpa country noted for its good (non-radioactive) bush foods.

Perhaps it would be more cost effective from a transportation point of view if they established a nuclear waste dump in the ACT!
