We have our own culture and it shits all over the rest of the world. Aussie humour is much funnier than the sterile crap that comes out of America. England ain't too bad, but it's not as edgy. Barry Humphries and Kevin Bloody Wilson are the funniest blokes that have ever lived.
Steve Irwin is a household name around the world, despite being dead for 17 years. He did more to get kids interested in conserving wildlife than the "cultured" Europeans and Americans.
Aussie lingo has taken the world by storm. The term "selfie" was invented in Australia. It's now used worldwide.
Greater Brisbane does have forests. Mount Nebo and Mount Glorious are in the City of Moreton Bay. There's more bushland on the south side, too. Down here in Logan there's plenty of bushland and wetlands.
No country has a greater array of unique fauna and flora than Australia.
1. Yeah nah on the first point. Our music, art and film is generally poor and so is our ‘comedy’. Seriously Kevin Bloody Wilson. At least pick somebody funny to illustrate your point.
We just don’t have the history and culture in our cities - that’s just inarguable. That’s just symptomatic of the fact that our cities are maybe 200 years old tops and other cities are 500, 1,000 and 2,000 years and older. There is just going to be more to see. Things that are of greater cultural and historical significance.I just don’t see how or why that is a controversial point.
2. Steve Irwin sure.
3. That’s great picking one word. I wouldn’t equate one word to taking the world by storm.
4. There you go. The only thing to see in greater Brisbane then.
5. That’s the greatest thing about our country. It ain’t the cities. It’s the natural environment surrounding the cities.
