>>739281178 "fucked up shit in Australia and nowhere else" >Haven't had a mass shooting since the 90's >Only had one muslim extremist try to kill people on Australian soil and didn't succeed anyway >Won't get shot even if I walk around a rough neighbourhood >All harmful wildlife will leave you the fuck alone as long as you do likewise >A lot of states are slang termed "nanny states" because of how overprotective the government and the police are of the population
Australia is literally one of the safest countries to live in at this moment in time unlike Amerifat where you get shot by the police, gang bangers, extremists and school shooters if you walk outside
>>739282829 >The wildlife here is chill as fuck It's really not, mate. You just think that because you live there and you're used to it. The plethora of poisonous/oversized shit in Australia is most definitely not chill as fuck.
>>739282583 You have approx 24 mil people in your dumbfuck country, we have 326 mil. Of course we have more crime, we have more people. Plus, no one wants to steal your dingos and scrub brush, there's no incentive for crime.
>>739282887 >>739283043 Don't get me wrong, there are some animals here that will kill you if you get injected with their venom or eaten but it's rare for that shit to happen to people here. If you came here to visit and actually walked through the bush you'd see how chill the wildlife is. Snakes and spiders stay away from people because we're much bigger than them
>>739283146 Brings nothing to the conversation, only criticises someone he knows nothing about, and a country he has never been to. Back to the basement, American neckbeard, I hear it is still summer out there.
>>739283892 Listen to me, gimpshit. I don't give a fuck about how people are affected. There are small islands in the world that are completely covered only in giant spiders. It doesn't matter whether people live there or not. It's still an absurd environment because of the shit that lives there.
>>739283612 >>>739283612 1) Not same person as>>739282583 2) Above person brought valid points. 3)>>739283146 Has only engaged in Ad hominem Logical fallacy attack. 4) Pretty sure Brits are in summer too, and have an extreme level of pasty Neckbeard equivalents. 5) I have never been attacked by wildlife here... Except for that one time I hit a spider the size of my hand with my slipper, and it didn't die. Then instead of running, the fucker tried to attack. Good thing i had a broom handy. Still took a couple of good whacks to kill it. Scary to see a spider get up on it's hind legs and be like, 'It's go time!'
>>739282829 Bears and cougars in America will run from you as long as you don't get near their cubs. Poisonous aussie shit on the other hand will bite you just for coming home and not realizing you house now belongs to spiders.
>>739284661 If It was during the day, it would have tasted my steel cap boots. You know spiders though, just waiting in the dark, for the right moment, particularly in rural public toilets with poor lighting.
>>739284767 Is this based on personal experience or that Bear Grylls episode you watched last night? I've encountered enough poisonous snakes and spiders in my own backyard to know they don't want anything to do with me. Unless you're dumb enough to stick your hand down a dark hole without checking what's in it then 99% of the time you'll be right
>>739285044 Dude, tradesmen make more than average office workers. They have actual real life practical skills, unlike the office cucks who just sit in a chair and get fat. Tradies get fat on the worksite.
>>739285532 Didn't mention anything about work ethic. In a desert island scenario, the office guy is the one sitting around whining (also probably first canabalised because fattest and least useful) while tradie plumber proceeds to build rainwater storage facility out of palm leaves and bamboo fishing rods.
>>739285425 >tradesmen make more than average office workers. Incorrect. They have actual real life practical skills Kek >unlike the office cucks who just sit in a chair and get fat. Incorrect >Tradies get fat on the worksite. Ok
>>739285072 Cougars and bears running when they see you is based on personal experience. Even if they didn't at least I can carry a gun it the woods. As for the poisonous animals yeah they won't seek you out but they aren't as smart as mammals either. Easy to get bit just for being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Just look at the stats, bears and cougars aren't even on the list.
>>739285891 Can't find Proper infographic, but 5 sec google search will do for now http://www.smh.com.au/comment/tradies-have-time-for-the-good-life-thats-an-office-workers-dream-20150312-1422x1.html >>739285891 >unlike the office cucks who just sit in a chair and get fat. "It's not just that we're stronger, fitter, less stressed, and better lovers than our disadvantaged desk-potato cousins."
>tradesmen make more than average office workers. https://www.traderisk.com.au/how-much-do-tradies-earn In Aus Office drone 45k - 55k Plumber 79k
Another choice quote: "It's the paper-pushers I feel sorry for: The legions of soft, snuffling office workers, jammed in their cubicles like pupae in hive cells, victims of misguided careers adviserswho shamefully convinced an entire generation that university was the only option. Many graduates have learnt the hard way that a university degree can lead to a career as intellectually stimulating as a mute game of musical chairs."
>>739286157 Really? I always had the impression that bears and cougars were territorial. Most people who get bit are the ones who stick their hand down a dark hole without checking first. I've almost stepped on a red bellied black snake before and have accidentally tipped them out of homes they've had in the garden and both times they didn't want anything to do with me. Brown snakes can be quite aggressive though and they're quite common.
The average person has a far greater risk of being shot in America, than an average person in Australia has of being bitten by a wildlife. Even if a spider or snake bites you, almost every hospital has Anti-venom, which is also free for citizens. Almost no one dies from snake and spider bites, just the odd old person or toddler. You just take a photo of the critter into the hospital, the doc says, oh, the anti-venom, and job done. Unlike the US, where people die from gunshots all the time. if I recall, the figures were 3-5 gunshot deaths per day in the US vs less than 10 deaths per year due to critters. So, much safer than the US.
>>739281178 Weirdly worded question. Pretty sure evolution is real. Australia is mostly desert, so most of the country remains wild. Not being disturbed, the emu army continues to gain strength, until they finally have the numbers to push the man-apes back into the sea.
>>739288292 If there's a choice between having to fend off a guy with a knife, and a guy with a gun, I'm far more likely to survive the knife. So we banned guns. In Europe, Tyrone robs you with a knife. In the US Tyrone shoots you and takes your wallet, he doesn't even have to risk getting close to someone who could out wrestle him, and stab him with his own knife.
>>739281178 Don't understand the question. Plenty of fucked up shit in the rest of the world. Are you asking a hypothetical question, ie: If Evolution wasn't real, why are there crazy animals in Australia? Two contradictions straight away >If evolution isn't real Evolution is the most plausible scientific theory we have, much more plausible than 'muh bible' >why is there so much fucked up shit in Australia and nowhere else Plenty of shit going wrong in the rest of of the world too. Animal, Mineral or Vegetable, Rephrase your question.
>>739281178 The most fucked up hypothesis I've heard is that after noah's flood, volcanoes launched some of the weirder animals all the way to Australia. This is not a joke either, many people actually believe that.
>>739291550 Why didn't he just say that himself then? He could have written: 'Attention Creationist fags, if there is no evolution, what's with all the crazy animals in Australia.' Careful nuance, that other countries have crazy shit too.
