    Been there before ('05) and had a nice little tour from Sydney to Cairns(I liked Hervey Bay plenty). This just makes the land down under so much sweeter.

    Yeah but you won't have L4D 2, so its a tradeoff....

    ...and spiders as big as your head. Not to mention literally everything there is deadly in some way or other. Even the seashells will try to kill you. Have you not read Bill Bryson's Down Under!?

    And a bit of a lack of culture.

    Who the hell needs culture, and worries about spiders when you can just hermetically seal your computer room, and stay inside forever? With fibernet you won't ever need to go outside again!

    well, aside from the obvious that a hermetically sealed room will eventually kill you from oxygen starvation...

    go to japan, they've had fiber optic networks for ages now. and epic speeds, and an awesome (and weird and sometimes incredibly disturbing) culture.

    Australia has a ludicrously censored internet. 2 words - NO PORN.

    If all you want is fast Internet then you might as well just go to Korea.

    And who said anything about a lack of culture? If their culture includes regular barbecues on the beach, drinking beer while ogling hot, scantily clad women, and a relaxed attitude towards pretty much everything, then I'm all game.

    Though no L4D2 and Vegemite are major turn-offs.

    Have fun being chased by kangaroos and spiders the size of household pets.

    Can we split your stuff if you get beaten up by a rough kangaroo?

    A bit of my point as well, why would you need crazy fast internet if you can only use it for things they allow?

    No point. Spiders and censorship kinda ruin the sweetness of the deal.

    On the way to said beach, you might well encounter a herd of angry spiders and kangaroos, but be drinking beer, so you won't be able to fight back or flee properly.

    I didn't think it was possible for a place to suck MORE after is ceased to be a penal colony.

    Don't worry, I'm sure those industrious porn-loving Aussies have found a way around such censorship measures by now. I've not been to Australia, but I know people that have and I don't remember them saying that their beaches were filled with a load of guys fapping away to their heart's content.

    Oh, there are ways around it, I have numerous Aussie friends (from both coasts) who have no issue watching porno to their hearts content.
