This shall be the thread in which we discuss all the ways in which the people and culture of our friends in Upside-Down Land excel.
First, as an American, I appreciate how they've been by our side through good times and bad pretty consistently for almost a hundred years now. Even when it wasn't a good idea (see: Iraq) for anyone involved.
Second, while Advance Australia Fair is, well, boring, so are most national anthems. And I challenge you to find an unofficial national anthem that gets stuck between your ears as easily as Waltzing Matilda. Which led to The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, possibly the most beautiful and sad song about war in the English language.
That's actually the happiest-looking picture of Nick Cave I could find.
What other things about Australia kick arse?
