Yeah, Wolf Creek wasn't a doco.
I'm going to be a bit all over here, just a warning.
I've got on my Netflix list The Snowtown Murders, and frankly, I'm afraid to watch it.
My husband said it disturbed him, and for Him to say that, it's gotta be bad. But, things like this happen all over the world, in every country.
I'll be honest. I don't get Australia, at all.
None of the following is me saying I dislike your country, I just don't understand so much of it.
As an American, I'm confronted with the worlds view that we are an obese lot. However, Australians are nipping at our heels on that, and I never hear boo. Sometimes I feel like the world looks at the U.S. like we are all racist, and wear white hoods over our heads. I look at Australias history of settlement of the continent, and get mightily confused. Besides the history of outsider takeover, you're a country of over 90% white people, so I don't think can really understand the day to day dynamics of living somewhere, where many times one person hasn't a clue that someone is looking at them as a racist, even though it might couldn't be futher from the truth.
Americans I think are largely thought of as loud crass bumbleheads. Southerners are stupid, North Easterners are rude, every Texan is walking around with 5 guns.
Much of this comes from how people from different areas sound, their accents.
To me Australians sound like they are going full tilt at all times. I know that can't be true, no more than it's true of anyone.
Me? I need a lot of quiet and downtime. I don't think I'd get much there. If Australia was a musical instrument, it would be a trumpet. I'm a gong. Sometimes loud, but many times zen.
I know this wasn't exactly the topic, but those are things I don't know.
hingehead, I remember being floored when I realized you are from Australia.
You have always seemed very calming to me.
