    You'll hate it, the traffic in Sydney is particularly bad due to the current Kangaroo plagues we are experiencing and most of them don't use indicators when they change lanes. :smile:

    Great to read about the drop bear zones. Surely they could have mentioned hoop snakes! Nasty buggers.....
     
  3. Is anyone else seeing more drop bears than usual these days? I'm thinking that maybe the old bounty system that ran up until the late 90s needs to be reintroduced.

    Blah Drop Bears...never bothered me.
    What concerns me is the reports of a huge migration of the Bogan to Mount Panorama in the Bathhurst region last month. I think it's a annual thing.

    Speaking of drop bears; did anyone else read the story on Ninemsn several weeks ago of an Asian couple being confronted by a very thirsty koala wanting water in Adelaide. The lady had a bottle of water in her hand and the koala ended up drinking from her hand and the bottle. In the end the husband had to lead the koala back to the tree by enticing him with another water bottle.

    Those answers seemed spot on to me. It's good to see our tourism folks are keeping up the good work.

    Hmmm. Totally bogus. No mention, whatsoever of Bunyips.

    Vegemite pasted behind your ears keeps the drop bears away.

    Actually this one is true, except for the asian couple part. It was a rural firefighter. The video is on youtube.
