the poll thread can be found here: http://www.trekbbs.com/showthread.php?t=226084

Sorry for posting it 1 1/2 hours too late - my [insert un-ladylike swearwords here] internet connection broke down again.
I live in a rather old house with lines that are too weak for several internet connections at a time. Whenever several of my neighbours go online, I get thrown offline and vice versa.

The new topic is: Something you consider typical Australian or very characteristic of that continent (including New Zealand and the islands).
As I'm sure both Aussies and Kiwis will adamantly insist, Australia and New Zealand are two completely different and separate countries, with over 900 miles of open ocean between them. Hell, they even speak English with different accents.
Absolutely we are very different from the kiwis. Interesting topic - pity I was too late.

Indeed. For one thing, Aussies tell sheep-shagging jokes about Kiwis, and vice versa.
