First I thought, "Isn't he a day early?" Then I remembered your time zone. I'll wish him the same when it comes to the Americas.

Yeah! :)

It's the one and only advantage I have of living in Australia, so I'm not going to pass it up! XD

Man you were quick to reply to this Deckardcanine! My post had only been up a few seconds!

It is not the only advantage! You have easier access to various cool animals.

As for being quick, it was incidental that your post was first on my Friends page when I brought it up.

Yes and no. The only Indigenous animals you'll find in this stinking city are occasional possums; furtive creatures that only appear at night. To see the exotic species you need to drive right out of the city. And even when you find them you need a telephoto lens, so it's not a lot different from seeing them on TV. I'm luckier than most because of the time I was able to spend helping to raise young kangaroos and wallabies. The vast majority of Aussies never know that privelige.

Besides, I think racoons, skunks (de-scented) and oppossums are pretty cool.

That's true; they are. But Australia and nearby islands, being relatively secluded, have more creatures that deviate from the biosphere's norm.

Anyway, there must be other advantages to life in Australia that aren't leaping to mind.

There's a theory that marsupials originated in South America. You guys have one of the remnants (the cute little rat-like things with pouches).

"Leaping to mind?" [Groan] I'll just set my kangaroo legs down on the floor.

I've lived here 3 1/2 decades and can't think of a single advantage of living here. Everything here is sub-standard and in short supply, except population. Nearly all of our consumer goods are imported from overseas.

Thanks!

You may have forgotten the <tt> and </tt> tags.
(that makes the font monospace, like a terminal's font and what you get when typing in posts)

dh, a little box told me your birthday was near, so have a happy one!
(or else!)

Thanks Carlfoxmarten! You're invaluable!

In my reply border boxes, is there a way to increase the font size?
