    Things Aussies can be proud of...

    Their cricket team has just gone on a 16 match winning streak and are one of the best sporting teams of any type i have ever seen.

    then there's ..... ehh...

    anybody else?

    What about the Sydney opera House?

    I think they can be quite proud of that.

    There's the aluminum cricket bat* I suppose. Snigger.














    *Incidentally, and not a lot of people know this, but the guy that co-founded/invented the infamous aluminum bat with Dennis Lillee lives right here in Chiang Mai.

    Yes, they should be very proud of their tolerance to both religious and ethnic minorities.

    also they ratified the Kyoto treaty very quickly.

    Also the famous "Impregnate a Kiwi girl", where for years Aussie males would travel to Kiwi land to have as many women they wished to help build up the population due to low sperm count of the natives, at least I think that is what kw said.

    * The bionic ear, a device that enables some deaf children to hear.
    * Flexible wine casks... the bag in the box.

    * The Electric Drill was the invention of Arthur James Arnot, who patented it in 1889.
    * Postage stamps. The world's first pre paid postage system was introduced at Sydney in 1838.
    * The world's first refrigeration plant was an Australian invention of 1858.
    * To our collective shame, the worlds first bathing beauty contest was held in Australia in 1920.
    * The famous "black box" flight recorder for recording aeroplane movements was invented in Australia in 1958.
    * Also in 1958 the worlds first regular 'round the world' airline service was begun.
    * The inflatable aircraft escape slide, which becomes a raft if the aeroplane ditches in water was an Australian invention of 1965.
    * The Automatic letter sorting machine - 1930
    * Two stroke lawn mower.
    * The rotary hoist washing line.

    Also many pubs in London have Aussies to be thankful for, if it wasn't for Aussies who else would clean up the puke stained floors and urinals?

    KW's talking about getting his knob chopped to marry some chick. Is that a) the type of guy that knows what he's talking about or; b) the example of the type of bloke that would be able to spread his seed under the Theory of Evolution??
