No, wait that wasn't a type o (golly I should let myself wake up a bit before responding to the forums). I was trying to say mid -west OF the coast. =) Not that I lived on the coast on the the midwest. Make sense? Sorry to get that all mixed up. :P

No. There's no coast involved because it's not on the coast.

Technically, Utah isn't considered midwest, either. Like California, Oregon, and Washington, it is considered a western state, just not a coastal western state. The midwest states are around Kansas, Nebraska, and that area.

Something I hate hate hate hate hate is that when some kind of natural disaster occurs in America it is on our news for like a month. Happens anywhere else, its on for 3 days and then you hear nothing else.

Your episode 2 on your Biggest Loser competitions is always crap! What is wrong with your fatties, yo! Their weight loss is shit compared to the Aussie contestants! They totally need the Aussie trainers! Jillian and Bob would shit bricks over our contestants! :P

Your McDonalds portions are ridiculously, stupidly, pathetically over-sized! Our large is your small! Fuck-that-shit!

You have Graceland = awesome!

I find tipping stupid. And your minimum wage is absolutely shit house. You wouldn't get away with paying a 16 year old in Australia that poorly!

You have very few average females! There is like 45% obese, big mouthed, lazy women - who think they're hot (!!!!)... 45% barbie doll-like women - who also think they're hot... and 10% normal, average women!

Your accent... love it. Actually I should say accents.

Your Mcdonald's are smaller? I'd hate to live where you live. I think ours are way too small for what we have to pay for them.

Mcdonalds is really expensive, here we don't have super size or bottomless drinks, the chips don't have salt already added either.

My in-laws reckon England had the most expensive Maccas.

Here in Australia... a Small is about $4.95, Medium is about 5.95 and large about 6.95
Not huge meals though lol! And usually taste like crap. Also depends what you're ordering!

$10 for McD's? Holy crap! I pay like $5 for the McD's meal. If I had to pay $10 every time, I wouldn't be able to go! lol.

I've done the conversion. Australian minimum wage is around the same as U.S. minimum wage given the currencies. Give or take one dollar difference. Also depending on where in the U.S. you are comparing it to. Federal minimum wage is barely over $6, but each state gets to choose whether they stick with the federal, or whether they pay more. The state I live in pays about $2 more an hour for their minimum wage than the federal requirement. So basically, my State's minimum wage is comparable to Australia's minimum wage.

Seems the numbers have changed a bit since I did the conversion. When I did the conversion they were nearly comparable. I looked it up again after I posted my comment and the numbers have changed so they're not as comparable anymore.

"Something I hate hate hate hate hate is that when some kind of natural disaster occurs in America it is on our news for like a month. Happens anywhere else, its on for 3 days and then you hear nothing else." Why does that really bother you? So America gets a little more attention than other countries sometimes... that's bad why exactly?

I am not a big fan of Mc Death's personally, I do enjoy a Big Mac now & then & maybe a SMALL yogurt parfait, that's pretty much it though. Many Americans love to eat, so much that we usually celebrate our holidays by eating a lot of foods. Thanksgiving= just another excuse for Americans to get their grub on without feeling guilty. :D :D :D



Poor wages + tipping = not so poor wages :D :D :D

I consider myself to be about average. I am not obese or even close to fat, lazy, or a barbie doll. Yay me!!!

"Your accent... love it." Awww, I love Australian accents!!! Yay for Aussies!!! =)

YES, YO. LIKE THERE IS ANOTHER STEREOTYPE THAT I FORGOT TO MENTION - THAT AMERICANS ARE ALL RICH AND HAVE FAR TOO MANY POSSESSIONS. BUT REALLY THAT IS A VERY SMALL PROPORTION OF AMERICANS. THERE IS A MUCH GREATER DIVIDE BETWEEN RICH AND POOR THAN IN THE UK - THE POVERTY IS WORSE THAN IT IS IN THE UK. BUT WE DON'T TEND TO SEE THAT, BECAUSE AMERICAN TV SHOWS CENTER AROUND FAMILIES THAT ARE WELL-OFF, YO!
