    I read that Aussies were statistically quickly catching up with the UK and US in terms of % of the population that were fat or obese and who lived sendentary lifestyles (i.e couch potatoes) I guess the chickens have finally come home to roost and the myth of mussle bound beach boys and slim but built Sheilas has finally been exposed.
    They champion falsehood, support the butcher against the victim, the oppressor against the innocent child. May God mete them the punishment they deserve

    When I was growing up in Australia to play sport was the be all and end all of our daily lives.

    You could swim before you could walk, when you did learn to walk it was with the aid of a cricket bat and when you could run you were passed a Rugby ball.

    The area were I grew up produced champions such as the Waugh brothers, Jeff Thompson and Len Pascoe amongst other great cricketers, Laurie Monoghan and Johny Raper who some say was the greatest Rugby League player ever, Graeme Windyart and Ian Thorpe olympic champions and too many more sporting champions to mention.

    Today it seems the Aussie youth have succumb to the good life that Australia offers and are too lazy to get out and have a go.

    I fear that the next Commonwealth games may be even won by England which will be the first time for decades so I believe.

    That to me would be the last draw.

    Nae the West Indians (mainly Jamaicans) have been here for generations now. Most recent immigrants are Eastern European .... So we could do well in sports that need big "gals" remember the soviet satalite state ladies? Sure they were so full of steroids and hormones they had to tape down their clits but they could sure chuck a shot-put. A lot of that kind of stock has moved to the UK in the past 4/5 years. Sure this generation will be without their steroids but they've still got the natural "brick shit house" build needed for field events.

    You are just so dead wrong with your assertion. Aside from having the highest per capita carbon footprint, Australia has now proudly overtaken the UK in the obesity stakes.

    Beat you again!

    Mind you, it will take us some time at beating the Yanks . . .

    Current Aussie contributors excepted, of course

    That is spelling rather than grammar surely?

    actually I was thinking it was both since mussel is a type of food.

    and spelled incorrectly.
