    It would take us too long to learn the language... Kip, bugger, stuffed, knackered...

    ...pissed, tinnies, barby, g'day....

    Two far different cultures separated by a common language.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)

    Agreed. When I moved to the US several years ago it was like learning a whole new language. I still struggle in the stores if I'm looking for a particular item but don't know what Americans call it (or if it even exists over here).

    If you're looking for Marmite, in the US it's called 'spackling compound.'

    Just my point, English Marmite is "crack spackle", OUR national spread is Vegemite - Australian TV commercial - YouTube , but the bigger problems would be how you could change over all your cars so they drive on the right side of the road ( the left) and as for melting down all those guns for scrap metal
