    that's because root beer is an abomination and luckily one that is limited to north america and hasn't infected the rest of the world.

    Boke. Root beer is minging.

    Also - F off AO! We're not cheapos! I've never been charged anywhere for tap water, I wonder where on earth you were going that they thought that was a weird request. I'm seriously loling at the squash drinking, that must have been awful!

    You can add Dr Pepper to the Satan's urine list too. And Irn Bru, flagship of Scottish cuisine. Don't get pissy Karistonia, I'm mad about haggis too even though I know what's in it. Deep fried Mars Bars are more of an acquired taste.

    I have pure (diet) irn bru running through my veins. I'm actually drinking it right now. It's orange ambrosia. Not a fan of the deep fried mars bar myself. Have you come across that Scottish classic, deep fried battered pizza crunch?

    I love Dr Pepper and Irn Bru and yes, I do like root beer on the odd occasion I can get it. Haggis is the Devil's testicles.

    Every country has love/hate food/drink. It's probably Vegemite (love) and Cherry Ripe (hate) here. Thanks to clever advertising everyone thinks Aussies only drink XXXX when in fact nobody does. Many pubs don't even serve it.

    Oh and I'll put a deadly Aussie snake against a equally deadly US rattlesnake. I don't hear Americans squealing about their own deadly fauna.

    ^Yeah, how come we cop it? Aren't there deadly critters everywhere? Sure, I have some living in my letterbox, but doesn't everyone?

    And vouch to the XXXX hate but they do drink it in Queensland - that tells you all you need to know. *waves to sleuth as I quickly exit the building*

    No, there aren't deadly critters everywhere. Just the weird places.

    Hey, do huntsman spiders routinely drop out of sun visors and into the laps of Australian drivers while they are in traffic? Or is that some overblown urban legend? I read about a year ago that it causes lots of car accidents in Oz.

    Also, you guys do have the irukandji. We don't have anything like that here --- yet.

    yeah we have poisonous rattle snakes but they are mostly found in the desert, away from people. You aussies have those gigantor spiders hiding under your cars or in the corners of your living room. *shivers* I would pass out dead if I encountered that shit.

    Huntsmen spiders very rarely drop out of sun visors - not quite an urban legend but close. They are certainly not responsible for "many" road accidents. Drunken young P platers can be blamed for that. I have seen probably 4 real Huntsmen in 14 years, all in the corner of a ceiling in the house. They can be big mofos for sure but harmless to humans, especially if you just leave them alone. They do a great job dealing with other bugs, hence the name. They don't hunt Men, they hunt Flies.
