I can't speak for the rest of Australia as to why it's not as popular as other beers, all I tell you is my opinion on it, which is that there are far better tasting Australian produced beers available that Foster's branded beer. Don't get me wrong, some people do drink Foster's, but the percentage would be small with all the other options out there. I think Foster's was more popular a couple of decades ago, but a lot has changed since then. I'm 30 years old, and it certainly hasn't been an all that popular choice with people since I've been of legal drinking age, which was over 12 years ago.

Actually Bourbon isn't that expensive, around $35 for 790ml, and I drink quite abit, mostly with cola and a slice of lemon.
And did you just ask an Aussie if he eats Vegemite?. thats like asking a Yank if he knows where Australia is, the answer is so obvious

Beware the m/20/aussies on omegle. They are many, oversexed and constantly horny

Never met an average Australian in real life but a close FB friend is from Australia. He's friendly, down to earth and funny. Very much into sports but also enjoys good food and beer. Just like his 200+ mates on his FB friend list.

Too me the price of a bottle bourbon here is pretty much on par with everything else. Depending on the week, Cougar is about $28-$35au for 700ml bottle, Jim Beam is appoximately $30-$38au for 700mls, Wild Turkey is usually around $33-$40au for a 700ml bottle, and a 700ml bottle of Jack Daniels is about the same price as the same sized bottle of Wild Turkey. They are all available in 1 litre bottles as well for between $40-$55au. To give it some prospective, cases of 24 beers are within those same price ranges. What's the approximate price for a bottle of bourbon in the U.S?

Where bourbon is expensive here, is when buying the premixed stuff, as our government slapped a large tax on all premixed drinks, to try to stop people from binge drink. Again depending on the week, a case of 24 375ml cans, of cougar cost $58-$70au, Jim Beam $65-$80au, Wild Turkey $75-$90au, Jack Daniels $70-$95au. Even though the premixed bourbon and cola cases are expensive, I still often buy them.

Vegemite, I like it just like most Australians do, but I don't eat it often.

I tend to mix it myself, not a fan of the ratio in the cans. I usally have 2 shots per 150ml of cola and a lemon slice just tops it off
Jim beam at my bottle store is on sale at $45 might grab it for the weekend:
I also have found myself eating less and less of Vegemite. Had it everyday for school and a lot on the weekends, might have some in the mornin...with grilled cheese

I'm starting to get back into the routine of mixing bourbon myself. I manily stopped because the size of my bourbon glasses I own require a double shot, otherwise it's too weak. With my fiancée and both drinking double shots, we were finding that we would only get 5-6 drinks each out of a 700ml bottle, so we started buying premixed as we found it almost goes just as far as buying 2 700ml bottles, and after buying the coke the price is very similar as well.

Haha well in your case premixed is the option. I don't have many mates who drink it so I leave it for when I'm watching a movie or tv, just really a relax drink.

Other than that, the only other venonous animals I've seen other than in a zoo, is 1 blue ringed octopus in a rock pool, and blue bottle jellyfishes.

My fiancée's half sister used to live way out in the bush, and one day got bit by a tiger snake while walking along a track. She almost died, but luckily managed to fight though it. Like I said though, coming into contact with Australia's dangerous wildlife in the cities and suburbs isn't common.

The average Australian man is generally too be found on the worlds battlefields,fighting other countries wars.

Starting with the Second Boer War; Breaker Morant(1980) through too current day Afghanistan.

Films depicting this include,Gallipoli(1981),The Lighthorsemen(1987),The Rats of Tobruk(1944),Kokoda(2006),The Odd Angry Shot(1979).

The one story that has not been filmed to date is "the battle of Long Tan", during the Vietnam war a group of Australian soldiers managed to survive contact with an overwhelming force of Viet-Cong by ordering artillery on their own positions!

Never ask the average Australian man,"show me your knife",
Never ask the average Australian female,"can I read your map of Tassie?",
