Haha, yeah it kinda is! If you're a cricket fanatic (aka me,) then it's not bogan at all. You should hear it being chanted out by 80,000 odd people at the MCG, (if you haven't already) it sounds quite awesome then!

 

I dont really have too much a of a problem with it in the context of cheering on a national team in a sporting situation...

 

But when people were standing in the vatican yelling "aussie! aussie! aussie! oi! oi! oi!" when Mary McKillop was "raised to sainthood" by the Pope --- i wanted to shank them.

 

Theres a time and a place.

 

Hmmm I didn't know about that, just a tad tactless :)

I live in Golden, CO, USA (it's just west of Denver)

...home of Coors beer, which used to be brewed with "pure rocky mountain spring water," and now is brewed with mere "rocky mountain water." What's that about?

 

Ypsilanti, Michigan here. Though originally from Wyoming.

Was going make a joke about our crappy government but got beaten to the punch!

I'm from the land where sign posts are like deciphering an ancient obscure language, we give an extra 10% on exams if answered in our own language which we kinda don't use, the more corrupt you are the more you can get away with, we have a static travelling community, we insist on spending as much possible but winge when it's time to pay, we invented an underwater ship, tourists kiss our stones and we answer questions before it's been asked because we are so efficient 'well'.

 

I'm from Ireland. Tipperary to be precise. Well, how ya?

Oklahoma, and unfortunately that is the only place I've lived. I keep trying to move elsewhere and keep getting sucked in to staying. I have a love/hate relationship with my state. :p

It's Europe.

 

Anything west of the Urals is still in Europe.

In Europe, people that speak 3 or more languages are multi-lingual. People that speak 2 languages are bi-lingual. People that speak 1 language are.....americans.

 

 

 

Lol, thanks for sharing. I agree. We start kids on second languages in high school. Way too late, IMO.

 

 

California here.

Born in Pakistan, moved to Africa at 3, came to Texas to go to college at 16...and have been here ever since (20 some years).

I was not sure which box to check :biggrin:

USA

Southeast

Alabama

Birmingham to be exact, or just south of...literary capital of western civilization. Okay not really, but there is an unhealthy obsession with college football, long dead head coaches, and grilled swine flesh slathered in thick, goopy sauces.

Eastern North Carolina. From a town no one has heard of, 'bout an hour east of Raleigh.

 

Try me. You know where Hoffman is? Few people do but I can tell you the upper grandstands of the legendary North Carolina Speedway (known as The Rock) casts a long shadow on this tiny hamlet which is situated, oddly enough, between Hamlet and Southern Pines on Highway 1.

I was born and have live my entire life just in Africa, South Africa to be exact. I've never actually left the borders, officially at least, but there was that foray into Namibian land once...
