Do Aussies always ask lots of questions?

I know a few Australians ... and they're always asking lots and lots of questions. Do you know any Aussies? What are they like?

Australians answer their OWN questions:

"What's your favourite colour blue?"
"What's your favourite pass-time sport?"
"What's your name Bruce?"

Yeah, we ask heaps of questions because we're insecure, misguided and don't know much. ;)

One thing I've noticed with the English is they try to answer questions for you. Such as:

How are you, good yeah?

And they end everything with 'yeah' to make up for the fact that they can't form a sentence into a question.

What a great goal, yeah?
I think that's a great pub, yeah?

Aussies are cool, same as Kiwis.

Haven't met any I didn't like, and I met a few.


Heh, they always want to drive my car though... Actually, they keep forgetting that our steering wheels are on the left hand side of the car, whereas &quot;down-under&quot; they are on the right. So when they go to get in the passenger side of the car, they actually get in the driver side, then we have to switch.


Always get a chuckle out of that.

If they are asking questions alot, its because they are trying to convert english units to metric units. Temperature is a common one.

Yay, we're 'cool'. I am no longer insecure. ;)
I'll go tell Shazza and Macca here in Down Under. ;)
