    Australia lists Canada dangerous place to travel because of terrorism, dangerous winter driving and cold weather conditions.

    Well, I haven't run into any terrorists (that I know of anyway) but I have seen my share of shitty drivers in the winter and it's been fucking freezing here the last week. So maybe the Aussies are on to something. Or maybe it's the Aborigines who are the civilized ones, I don't know.

    Wonder if Canada put Australia down as dangerous for not just terrorism, but hot temperatures, jumping kangaroos and koalas getting high on eucalyptus...

    Well, if it that bit of silliness stops the boorish Australians from visiting, 35,000,000 people are grateful.

    I find this funny.

    Isn't Australia pretty much Canada, with an accent and kangaroos instead of beavers?

    I think the terrorists they're referring to are the drivers.

    Are there any pro teams nicknamed the Chinooks? That would be a great name.

    There was a band from western Canada (natch) named Anal Chinook.

    Not really, considering it means a warm wind coming over the mountains. Now, Blizzard is always a good name ... especially for Dairy Queen ice cream ... yum ...
