This shit is awesome! 2 guys go to rob a bar... and pick the wrong day.. a bunch of bikers were in there for a meeting and they kick their asses with tables and chairs!

text from the article

Armed thieves trying to rob a bar in Sydney were chased away by an angry group of bikers drinking there.

I would too. My buddy goes to school there. From what i gather:

-Like in Europe, you need to start off on a lower cc bike and work your way up.
-They have little 'clinics' that you can do heroin at, with nurses that wrap the band for you.
-You can go to class a little tipsy.
-Drinking before 12pm is not frowned upon.
-Everyone there is pretty much in the same class (i was told there are no cars that are newer than a 98-99).

There are a few other things but i just ate a shitload of cake and am about to pass out.

Yup, not in all of the country though, but definitely in Sydney.

I've done this many times. The drinking age is 18 and the school tavern is always cheap. Tipsy though is a bit of an understatement, I've turned up to class barely able to walk more than once and never been kicked out.

Complete bullshit, where do you think the new Pontiac G8 came from? Or the Pontiac GTO? For the defuckified version just go to Oz.

Wollongong is not that small and is pretty well known. The prob is he doesn't recognize the Aussie models as well as he recognizes the Jap trash. Aussies tend to why away from Jap trash unless they are poor. That said really nice cars are very expensive over there, as in 3x the price minimuim. An 08 R6 is $24,000 worth of bike for example.

Yeah, he did mention that the cost of living is pricey, but hey, at least healthcare is free. Sounds like a place i can get used to.

You got the free clinic here for all your STD's, what's the problem?

Quite wrong, the cost of living is really cheap, the price of luxuries is high. If you want to buy a nice car or a big tv you'll pay through the ass for it, but if you aren't that way inclined you can live for next to nothing.
