ok, yes i've seen a kangaroo (many times) but only coz i travel. u need to get to the alice b4 ur gonna b able 2 c 1 easily, and even then thers no guarantees, but ull prb c an eagal. Kangaroos, wallabys, lizards and emus do not just pop up everywhere. you will not walk down a street and c heaps of wildlife. our sitys r like urs, but mayb not so crowded. im 14 and aus is NOTHING like what u c on tv. 2 start with, we dont actually say g'day all the time. we say hi and hello just like everyone else. yes, dude, mate and stoked DO come in a bit, but we don't intentionally talk like bogans. please refrain from using aussie slanf on this site, i only used it to... well im not sure coz it pisses me off. it is SERIOUSLY ANNOYING when u meet sum1 from a different nationality and their all 'oh, g'day mates. im totally stoked to meet you dudes'. that is painful and steryotypical. the beaches exist only on the gold coast, sunshine coast (both in QLD) and on Phillip Island where maddie and i both happen to live. pengins, koalas, seals and various birds can be found in abundance here, but it'll be hard to find them anywhere else. whales are not common where we live but NSW and QLD get a few in the summer. most of aus. is desert and even on the island, which is one of the most southerly points, it can hit about 35-40 degrees celcius in the summer. we do not walk around in bonds singles and bordies, and not ever male has a beer gut. you will not be able to find digeridoos, boomerangs or felt hats just anywhere. if you have anymore questions about life in Aus, then I (and possibly maddie) will be happy to answer them.

Meg and I live in the north eastern portion of the country, it's cold most of the year and warm for about 3-4 months, I just moved here two years ago, from the southern half [ Kentucky] and I miss the heat. It snows more the farther up north you go. Sorry, I really don't know a lot about up here, meg does she's from here, but I can tell you about the southern parts. It never snows anywhere below Kentucky, the people do have southern accents, but like you said, it's really annoying when people try to mimick the accent.The beaches in Florida, [which also has Disney World in Orlando] and California are the most popular. We don't say like that much maybe once or twice every couple of hours, but trailer park girls tend to say it a bit more then the rest of us. Oh yeah, we're trying to make Puerto Rico an official state. The people, well, it depends on where you live. In the more northern parts people have really... different accents, when saying the word bag they will pronounce the "a" with a long a sound instead of a short "a" sound, kinda sounds like beg when they say it. Down south we tend to like spicy food. Canada, and Mexico border us, but there have been a lot of illegal aliens crossing our border cough:from Mexico: cough. There was a civil war ummm, about 200 years ago, and it split the country in half between the north and south, but after the war ended we came back together, but there are some cultural differences now depending on whether you're in the south or north. We text a lot. You probably won't see a hippie, oh, and there is a volcano in the well populated city of Seattle [Washington] that could blow at any minute. Washinton, and Washington D.C. are two different places on opposite sides of the country. Why Washington D.C. isn't a state, I don't know. :D

That's really cool about the kangaroos and wildlife, yeah, we really don't know that much about you guys, unless you count the movie Finding Nemo, or Kangaroo Jack as educational. lol
P.S.The average american teen has at least 70-100 text messages per day, so if me or meg us a lot of " lol, btw, ikr" its because we're accustomed to it. Sorry if anyone finds it annoying. :D

How big do the kangaroos get, [sorry i know dumb question] and does Australia have a queen or king, president, or prime minister? Does Steve Irwin's family live there or did they move or something? [ I'm a Steve Irwin fan, although his daughter is a horrible actress, lol :D]

there are 2 types of kangaroo. red ones can get up to 2m, but the little gray ones can be on abt 500cm.
im guessing that u use farenheit, so i have no idea how hot or cold the tempretures you're talking about are, because you couldn't get to 100celcius without being fried alive.
so it wasn't steryotypical of me to asume that you both sent heaps of txts. that a relief, but considering that within my freinds the record in txts per day was only 50 you guys still txt to much for me.
yeah, i no about the locations of washington, and my record is naming 45 out the 50 states without getting help, and it shocking how much of your tv ends up over here. i heard about the civil war, but i didn't think that it totallt split the country.
australia has a prime minister (leader of the government) and a governer-general who represents the queen (and is te head of state)
aus dosen't have any acive volcanoes, but we've got some really awsome extinct ones, full of water or full of nothing.
umm, steve, bindi and the other one (bob) were all born here, but terri was american or whatever. bindi is the single most annoying person is australia to me. bindi is now the poster child for basically everything. we have 5 day weeks as well 9-3.15, so thats just over 6 hours, but only 4.5hrs of that is spent doing actual work (less on fridays). PE is complusory, and we play hockey, softball, netball, basketball, football (aussie rules, dif 2 yours), soccer, cricket, along with athlectics/running, swimming, cross-country, discus, shotput and high-jump. at our school, drama, art, woodworks/desing tech, and cooking, graphics are complusory for 2 semesters.
The hottest its got in recent years was the summer of 2009, were the februray bushfires (black saturday) claimed 173 lives in about a week. it was the biggest bushfire season on record, and coz victoria is one of the most bushfire prone areas in the world (and were looking at another hot summer) there are already warnings about this summer. it got up to 40 in the shade, and i no heaps of people who were affected by it.
i went on camp in gr4, and there was an american who i rekon said 'like' about 5 times in ONE SENTENCE! so u guys arealready doing better then her.
but for the accents...we don't have the same split that you guys seem to. all aussies pretty much sound the same, unless they had relos who were from another country.
and i can't believ that i haven't ever asked about yor families????

message 24: by Zoe, Always Dreaming (new)

for instance:
In my family there is
a) my sister: Jackie, aged 12yrs.
b) my mum: eva, one of 5 children from a greek family. shes stuck in the awkward position of haing an older and younger brother, and an older and younger sister (brother, sister, mum, sister, brother if that makes sense?)
c) my dad: ash, one of 4, oldest boy with only a sister above him.
i have 7 uncles and 6 aunts, and between them they have given me 17 cousins. 12 on mums side, of which only 4 are girls. 5 on dads side, and 2 are girls. so if it makes sense:
mum, boys:8
mum, girls:4
dad, boys:3
dad, girls:2
im scared to find out how many second cousins i have, coz mum had 20+ cosins herself, and dad had 12, so i have a HUGE extended family that i have no idea about.
my great-grandfather raced 'the trump' to win the melbourne-caufield cup double in 1937, and his brother raced 'nightmarch' to the melbourne cup victory in 1929.

Your grandfather was a champion jockey?!? THAT'S SOOO COOL! Ohh and bout the Celsius, Fahrenheit thing I used my phone to convert it: 40 d. Celsius is 104 d. Farenheit, 30 d. Celsius is 86 d. Fahrenheit, and 20 d. Celsius is 68 d. Fahrenheit. :D I love my phone :D
QUESTIONS: Is the movie on Pharlap the Australian racehorse true, or was he a myth?

And geez, 5 "likes" in one sentence? She really must have been trying lol. Yeah bout the civil war, we had two countries with two presidents, but after the union won it and we came back together the union president [Lincoln] became the official president.
I'm related to Elvis Presley, I'm like, his 7th cousin. [I swear I'm NOT JOKING!] A grandfather of mine to some extent signed the Mayflower Contract [To long to explain, but look it up on wikipedia if your interested]

message 29: by Zoe, Always Dreaming (new)

Zoe | 1343 comments Mod
OMFG!!!!!!!!!!!! u no elvis??? well, ur related 2 him anyway!!! that is so f****** awsome!

yeah phar lap (two wrods, 'farlap' means lightning in malaysian or something, but the guy who owned him wanted 7 letters) was completely real. i havent seen the movie, so i dnt no, but yeah, im guessing that it was pretty much all true. as in, the basic story line would've been the same.
u no how i told u abt my great-great uncle (he raced nightmarch)???? yeah well, he was one of the only ppl who could claim to have beaten Phar Lap! wow, we must have soo many ppl who are related to famous people in this group.
