In my Internet wanderings I discovered the following page, which has a lot of information about Australian culture and language: http://www.australianbeers.com/

I ran it by stales, since he actually lives there, and he says it's "a gem of a site" so I gather that it has his seal of approval! So if any of you Northern Hemisphere types have been wondering more about life in Australia, or better yet, assuming that it's just like North America, but with the seasons reversed, have a look. It's a good way to spend an afternoon!

When asked what he thought of Western Civilzation, M. K. Gandhi replied, "It would be a good idea."

And here was I thinking Bean was starting a new thread on oxymorons.

But she was, Max. Note her link: www.australianbeers.com

What's oxymoronic about Aussie beer? The bludgin' bastards've gotta be good at somethin'. Even if all their bloody breweries are owned by the flamin' Kiwis.

How said there was anything oxymoronic about Aussie beer?
Now "beer culture" ... that's something entirely different.

oxymoronic ... "beer culture"

Hey, you think they use just any old yeast that comes along, like a bunch of Flems?
