Default Why Do Aussies Have All The Fun?

You mates are hilarious posting those cars with big crash bars on front and those steroid roos that you post.

By the way how poisonous is this snake?

like it says in the text on that page, it's poisonous enough to seriously mess you up.

that's a red belly black snake we get a few of them around here they wont kill you but at the same token you don't want to get bitten either the pain from the venom is agony ive been told from someone who has been bitten.
there not as aggressive as our brown snakes that have been known to kill and are more common then the red belly black snake .

I will find a video of a lunatic who uses deadly snakes to catch rabbits with lol

here ya go who needs a gun to go rabbit hunting all you need is no brains .

Okay here's the thing, of the top 23 most poisonious things in the world, 21 come from Australia.
Red bellied black might not kill you but, as that article says, you'd probably wish you were dead. Apparently the pain is very up there with the best of em.
However if you want to die quickly try one of our fierce snakes or Taipan-its good for 4-6 hrs without treatment-then I think you're pretty screwed !
As a guide your rattle snake, just doesn't cut it and your water mocossan comes in about #25
If snakes don't do it for you- maybe you should try our funnel web spider - they'd kill a black dog !

don't go outside inner-suburbia because you will get f##ked up by a badass snake
don't go swimming in the ocean because you will get f##ked up by a box jellyfish or a great white shark
don't go swimming in the river because you will get f##ked up by a saltwater croc
don't stay home because you will get f##ked up by one of many badass spiders

moral of the story, stay in the Cobra and stay moving

What a pair of pussies,
Its only a red bellied black,
I despatched one at the front of a roller door not long ago.

THE deadliest snake in the world is the INLAND TAIPAN or FIERCE snake, much deadlier than a normal taipan which is still VERY deadly.
They only live in a small area in central australia and were rediscovered in 1972, the venom will kill you in 30 to 40 minutes.

Plenty of taipans up this way and youre always hearing of dogs being killed around the canefield headlands, they dont have a chance as the taipan is very aggresive big and quick and wont back down.

Deaths were common from taipan bites to humans untill a MACKAY man from south sea islander decent named RAM CHANDERER caugh and milked them for their venom and the csiro made a antivenom which is kept at all hospitals.

He survived several bites himself, but is now deceased and has a park and road in Mackay named in his honour, his work has saved many lives.

Nobody's mentioned the stingray that took poor old mate Steve. I wonder how many snake and spider bites he survived?

We get a few snakes in Victoria but not as many as Queensland. Tiger snakes are quite common down our way as well as brown snakes. I found a Tiger snake at my daughters school when on a working bee.

We used to regularly see king browns up country when I was shooting a lot. A big one had been living in the back of the sofa at the rifle club room. We wondered why there were no mice. We discovered him after opening up the club rooms and he chased us out. He was a good 6 foot long and as thick as my wrist.

Red Belly Blacksnakes are quite cool.

50 years ago on the 9th October, 1965, I was a Trooper in the CMF, driving driving 6 x 6 Studebaker trucks on POL missions to supply Centurion Tanks with fuel on the Puckapunyal Army Range in Victoria.

I celebrated my 21st birthday whilst on at a remote camp on the range. I was sitting in my tent that afternoon when the Provos came down, arrested me and marched me up to the C.O.'s tent where I was officially charged with "Not notifying the Commanding Officer of attaining the age of manhood." The Commander sentenced me to drink a can of beer from every member of the Regiment. The Regiment consisted of over 100 personnel so I was pretty pissed by the time they carried me off the parade ground where I had sat for quite a few hours under a military guard, scoffing down numerous cans of VB.

They laid me on my stretcher in the tent and I slept well that night. Next morning, we had to clear camp and move to another location. When we lifted the floor boards of my tent, I discovered the biggest red belly black snake imaginable, coiled up, asleep under the exact spot where I had slept all night. It was about 15 feet long and as thick as a man's thigh. The diameter of the snake's coil was about 4 feet. ****'s were trumps.

We recently returned from a holiday in Europe and found a red belly swimming around in our outdoor spa. Not long ago, I found a funnel web spider, which will kill you quicker that a major Cobra rollover, floating around in my skimmer box. He was possibly there for a week at least and was still quite alive.

Don't you just love Australia. These deadly creatures are what keep us unique and isolated from all the horrible dramas which are occurring in the rest of the world. They are what keeps the undesirables from coming here.

Spread the word. Platypus and Koalas have poisonous spurs, Box Jelly fish will kill you in seconds, Great Whites love eating tourists and Kangaroos will rip your guts out.

Other than that, what a great country we have. I played golf today in the middle of Winter. The temperature was around 20 degrees C or in your language, in the mid 70's. Not bad for the middle of Winter. American's can't do that. I think I forgot to say that I had 35 points and won a nearest to the pin also. You can't do that in the snow.

Come if your game, but watch out when you're crossing the Sydney Harbour Bridge. That giant Bilby will pick up your rent-a -car up and heave it over the rails into Sydney Harbour. There you will be eaten by one of our Great Whites. What a fabulous holiday. You won't get this any where else in the world.

Yes we do have fun over hear. Get your mates together Stormbringer and come across. You won't regret it. Oh.. You will survive. Believe me. You will have the best time of your life and you won't have to drink that Bud crap. Our beer is amongst the world's best.

Talk about Box Jellyfish,
2 of my ex girlfriends back in the 70s had close friends that died excruciatingly from diving straight into box jellyfish, they didnt last long, one at seaforth beach just north of mackay and one at Saunders beach just north of Townsville, and ive seen a huge one with tentacles 2 meters long drifting along under the main jetty at shute harbour not long ago,
Deadly f***ers those Boxys.

Well you probably could but it would be a right bastard trying to find your balls !! And the golf balls would disappear in the snow too !

Hey I was over there earlier this year with a bunch of ex-military guys I employ. Had a few days on the reef diving and had a chance to visit that little rock sticking up in the middle of nowhere. Climbed up that little bridge in Sydney harbor & visited a few resorts. Never made it to that no speed limit road.

I thought some beaches had nets for the box jellyfish. The one I was worried about was that little one that is very dangerous that can go through the nets.

You make it sound so safe brown snake. lol No way. Yeah we were putting up fences in a rocky outcrop and found eastern variety of rattkesnakes that were not suppose to be in our area. Now they are on the endangered list. But no comparison to really venomous snakes.

Asia has some hairy snakes and oh those frigging vipers worldwide. Came across those in South America. Never went to Africa but those vipers and black mamba so fast and frigging aggressive too.

I visited a friend on Guam Naval base and they have those snakes that climb and cause multiple power outages a night by climbing up the wires.


Someone posted a picture of a roo that seemed gigantic and on steroids.


cheers
