    Well I'll be gosh danged! The kiwis got a forum before the aussies?? what is wrong with the world?! This does not bode well for my people... ;)
    J/k! You guys rule!
    And I guess I gotta be nice anyways... seeing as this is the only place in the southern hemisphere to hang out around here!

    So how's the weather in new zealand? :p

    I reckon Aussies and Kiwi could share a forum. But then as an Aussie-born Kiwi (expatriot of both) I am very inclusive. It could be the Australasia forum :)

    On the up side Aissies have their own smilie which we kiwis don't ;)

    i agree veinglory... we should just have one forum --- less work for
    Skip and a generally more social atmosphere for all involved! :D
  5. yeah, could be fun... as long as people know that NZ is not like tasmania and part of Oz. - WE ARE NOT THE SAME COUNTRY - *alright, sophs, breathe*. :)

    You would not believe the amount of anti-new zealand bullshit I have to put up with. As there are 6 new zealanders and over 80 australians its really getting too fucking much.
    I'm thisclose to going to the guy who I'm studying under and putting forward a complaint of racism. It's that bad.

    Frankly, I'd rather not have this as an Australasian forum. South Pacific forum would be a different issue. :p

    You Australians have an avatar.
    We have a forum.

    hehe. don't worry, you guys yelled that so loud i think everyone's heard it by now!

    Someone once asked me which language we spoke in Australia (after we had been conversing in English for several minutes.. this person was, needless to say, an American). I replied that we spoke mandarin and the entire country was full of asian midgets and I am the queen because i am the tallest. And they believed me.

    messing with foreigners is fun :D

    havent you learned that americans butt in everywhere? :D

    and haha..that reminds me..when i was in adelaide i went to the casino...and they had this game where you flip coins!! and all the guys were around chanting "aussie aussie aussie oi oi oi!" nothing to make fun of there :rolleyes:

    Ah, well the Adelaide casino is nothing to brag about. you're right there... :eek:

    the OI OI OI chant was sufficiently screamed to death during the Olympics. But we need it i think... i mean, it's basically our pledge of allegiance!

    lol, i know, it just sounds funny to someone who never heard it before :D
  14. that same chant is used for drama warm ups over here, and i believe the skin heads in chistchurch use it?

    Anyway, those enlightning comments aside, I have heard some pearlers about NZ - for instance "oh new zeland, thats the one near Spain, right?" - well, i think we are diectly opposite on the globe or something, so you couldn't be more wrong, but hey.
    On the net i have "ahaha, New Zealand. Do you own a sheep? I thought all new zealanders had pet sheep".

    and the best one ever (bear in mind I was talking ON THE COMPUTER - "New Zealand. Is that the place where they haven't invented electricity yet?" yes, fool, and I'm talking to you on my imaginary internet connection, by way of a magical computer...retard.

    haha, the stupidity and lack of common sense in some people amazes me

    didn't we invent electricity, i am sure the maori ha electricity for ever and ever. how elese did they getrotorua and the hot pools so hot?

    come on people common sense :p

    HA HA

    oh and i own a sheep (as well as velcrow gloves :p)

    na seriosuly i embrace the mocking of NZ and sheep because if you join in the mocking then they lay off and its not offensive, but as soon as you get angry about it thn they go more hard core.

    p.s. i'm not anti-australian, or anti-american, i just hate australians and americans (Ba ha ha ha ha just kidding, i love you all except for bush and howard (and heir die hard supporters)

  17. oh, don't worry, I love being mocked about sheep fucking. Its all in good fun. The sad thing was though, this fella was serious...he genuinely believed that we were all given sheep as pets at birth.

    Bah don't be shittin me sophie.

    i mean i always thought that these americans were given brains at birth, but the more i think about it, maybe my long understood sterotypes are not correct. :p

    On the whole being a Kiwi isn't to much trouble. Most of the steroetypes are nice. In the States, Canada and here is Scotland most people say 'Oh, I hear it's lovely, I've always wanted to go there.' There aren't many people who want to go around punching New Zealanders in pubs. the more I see of other nations (esp. Scotland/England) the more I realise that even the Aussie/Kiwi rivalry is really just for fun.

    oh hell yeah.

    aussies and kiwis love each other. i mean considering there are about 1/2 the kiwis in the world living in australia. i.e. we have 4 million in NZ and there are like a good 3 million living in australia (i am pretty sure)

    if australia becomes another stae of the US i think that there will be some real rivalry though.

    p.s. we are both new countries in historical terms so we havn't got any long term enemys deeply engrained in our blood yet.
