on my list of snakes I wouldn't mess with Mamba is probably top, not many snakes will literally chase you if you annoy it. Also don't fancy messing with Eyelash vipers, tiny snake, mega brutal bite.

Eyelash vipers are stunning to look at though.

Mambas look like they're spoiling for a fight.

They had an eyelash viper for sale in a shop in Portsmouth once, Genuinely considered DWA licence for a few weeks to get one. Then read more about how badass there bite was and decided against it. get bit, lose the limb even if you pull through, no thanks

That’s about 6 years old but yes at the time she was our PM.

Personally I don’t see much wrong with what was said. Immigrants are fully welcome if they want to abide by the rules and laws of the country. Those that want to come here and convert Australia to the laws and ways of their country which are total polar opposite aren’t welcome is what she is saying.

Sydney itself is hugely multicultural, many of the other nationalities have had no problem immigrating and asymmulating into the Australian way of life while still maintaining their culture and national identity. That’s all that is expected.

Sharia law has no place in Australia or any other democratic Christian based country. I’m not religious at all and support people practicing their own religions within lawful means, but I don’t want an archaic religious law forced upon me.

I think if you move to another country then you adapt to their ways/customs/lifestyle & not the other way around. Otherwise why did you move...??

Fcukin' immigrants.....

There is only one animal in the world that has cube shaped t#rds and piles them high for territorial advantage, where do you think it lives?

What's so wrong with that statement?

Shouldn't people repatriating make a reasonable attempt to fit into the language and culture of their chosen home?

There are plenty of cultures that are a lot more forceful about their native beliefs than that.

They are pretty cool little creatures. They look all cuddly and soft but they actually have armour on their backs under that fur. Camping one night I heard a racket coming from my car and found one rubbing his back on my car bumper and had torn it half off!!! They do this to get rid of ticks.
