Australia: Not just an island, but a hella scary one too!

For some unknown reason, recently the most popular Google searches leading to our site have been “Australia Map” and  Australian Flag” and variations thereof  (barely – just barely – beating out “goatse” and “sarah plain naked,” it must be said.)

The “Australia Map” searches almost always lead to a post on Prime Minister Kevin Rudd’s keen observation on the ABC’s 7:30  Report back in 2008 that “Australia is not an island”:

Australia is not an island - K. Rudd, 2008

"Australia is not an island" - K. Rudd, 2008

However, our own Wizard of Woz has unearthed an even more accurate map of Australia which may give the rather pedestrian version above a run for its money in the page-impressions stakes:

The following ad campaign by our Alt-Tourism Authority would seem to back this up:


UPDATE: Australia has crazy-wild spiders.  Hey!  More cool spiders!

    PS Have you noticed how the Iranians who visit here usually hit one of our nudie pic pages? Poor bastards. No decent porn over there.

    Hell no. It’s heaven on a stick to be confined to a kennel on the very frontier of swine-flu-world. Weren’t for the sexy Vets, I’d make a break for it 😉

    That second ad would probably make Americansmore likely to visi Oz than thos gloomy slit-your-wrists-now-and-get-it-over-with ads there showing from that flop movie Australia.

    Adventure and danger is more fun the shit they show in those ads.

    Bragging rights rule OK.

    I think it was Dudley Moore (Tony Hancock???…some British comedian, any way) who said that when he visited Australia, he continuously jumped up and down. This meant that 50% of the time he was safe from being bitten by anything dangerous.
