Title speaks for itself.
My country's media glorifies and values stupidity and mediocrity. And that's only the beginning...

If you're from Australia you either love her and bow to her fear mongering bullsh*t TV show

Or you hate her with a serious passion!

I'm a proud member of Group 2...

To elaborate further I hate Australia's media in general, nothing but scare tactics, every night...

For example the news last night said Ibuprofen can be deadly...so half the country stops using pain killers...

In my country, you can not say ANYTHING without someone complaining. People are always complaining.
People come over here, get our goverment handouts, and still complain constantly.
Our goverment is stupid, dont come to australia, its GAY as. ****s expensive over here...
Ill tell you a little story. DID YOU KNOW, that its actually cheaper to go to canada or japan to the ski slopes and snow, than it is to go to the mountains here in Australia? The people over here are pathetic too, "Ban this! Ban alcohol! OLD PEOPLE COMPLAIN LOUDLY!"
Jesus.

only reasonably good musicians IMO are rush

and someone has got to tell me, is american beer really weaker than the canadian version of the same brand? cus that might just be sad

Well Let's just start with my city, the stupid fucking council is wasting something like 180 million on a freaking rugby stadium (a dying sport by the way) when things like drinking water quality in outskirt suburbs is sub-par and we lack a decent public transport system or tourism industry. Our whole city is fueled by the university which is attended by retards that somehow managed to get in when all they care about is rugby and beer.

I have to say that if I ever had a shotgun. And Anna Corens head was nearby....

The worst thing about Australia would be, not as bad as it seems people have said in this thread. I'm not very political so I don't know much about government or anything, but bands don't come to Aus sometime when they do a "world tour". And I'm from Perth which makes it ten times worse. :P

But the whole Ramsay incident it getting annoying (don't know if the Easteners are getting it) but recently they started playing "Ramsays Kitchen Nightmares" and "Hells Kitchen" on Free-to-Air TV. And as soon as people heard him swear, the complaints never stop. I reckon if you don't like it, TURN IT THE **** OFF AND GO OUTSIDE!

You speaking American in Austrailia!



I know this thread is about countries other than the US but I can't stand the blind nationalism one bit.
Quote by Shredder XXX
how about the way your entire country generalizes a culture by the actions of a few, citing any Americans idea of a middle eastern person.

Also we have a lot of xenophobes! But I guess, that's pretty much the same in all the western countries at the moment.

The media, exagerating every little situation to an extent I couldn't believe possible. For example, a politician got angry and exchanged some angry words with some night club staff, forced her staff members to sign statuatory declarations to say that she didn't. The media started comparing it to the Watergate Scandal.
The public and their general stupidity. "Gawd, I, liek, saw this thing on teh tv, it sez ahm getten ripped off at teh soopermahket!" They believe anything "reported" as truth.
The new government. Apparantly, after just 7 months, they have no more legislation to introduce, no new ideas. Bah, this isn't the political thread so i'll stop there, but I could go on for pages about them.
The music scene. Horrible.
Quote by Vornik
Thanks for the advice. I'm going to put it, along with your other advice, into a book, the pages of which I will then use to wipe my ass.
