Report: Australians More Fat Than Americans
Found this story on Breitbart.com and, I hate to say it, but it's true. Australia is a nation of 20+ million, yet there are a lot of big people there. Don't get me wrong, there a lot of very athletic people there as well, including bronzed gods and goddesses along the coast. Probably more so than in the US, but there is a huge percentage of folks that just don't take care of themselves.
One observation we make every time we go there is how most Aussie men don't really take care of themselves. I've heard for years that Aussie men don't take care of their women-folk or treat them right, but I think it's because they don't take care of themselves.
Again, not all Aussie men are like this, but many are. I think their British roots are to blame. British men are infamous for not taking care of themselves or their women.
Good news! It is still true to this day that if you're an American man you will have the Aussie 'Sheilas' flocking to you because of the shortage of men who give a damn down there. I was told this years ago and it is 100 percent true. Even more so in Perth, on the west coast. The ratio of women to men is so lopsided, women will actually approach men in a club or bar and buy them drinks. Add an American accent to the equation and things really get interesting.
And ladies, there are plenty of good Aussie men out there that are gentlemen. Not all of them have gone to waste, so if you're looking for you're own Crocodile Dundee, I can tell you where to find yourself a beaut.
Why am I saying all of this. Because I feel it is my duty to help my American brothers and Aussie sisters. Australia needs a bigger population, and many American men need to travel oversees more to see the rest of the world. I want to help both the US and Australia any way I can, even if it means trying to matchmake.
Heck, you may even meet a nice American on the flight out there.
As for the Aussie eating habits, they have some great food out there, but many people spend way too much time at McDonalds and Hungry Jacks. Same thing we do here in the US.
Oh well, those are my thoughts on that. Now comes the hate mail from Down Under.

Please don't get in the matchmaking business. I spent most of the weekend of my 50th class reunion fighting off matchmakers... :-)3:15 PM
50th? Wow, and you're still knocking them dead aren't you.
I promise no matchmaking. I couldn't afford the lawsuits.
Sure I am! At our age it doesn't take much to knock any of us dead. ;-) The comment was made by one of my classmates that there was probably enough nitro in the room to blow all of us to kingdom come. We had fun anyway!11:31 PM
