Yes, short for Aussieland (i.e. Australia). That's how I know it. I always thought it is wrong to use it to refer to the adjective (nationality) Australian.

That's what Treks told me too.

And no, I didn't mean it was disrespectful. Treks said so too

Hi! I have many Aussie friends and they don't consider that to me disrespectful.
I'm sure they would have informed me by now! LOL

Some of the best software I use comes out of aussie land. Auslogics How to Speed Up Your Computer-Best Software to Increase PC Speed
A tidbit about the company. They wrote the original defragger for MS. The free one they have on their web site will optimize your files. Meaning chunks of the file are not scattered about but are placed as a complete linear file. They load a lot faster when optimized.

I just can't get over the giant spiders. MY GOD... And they come in your house like they belong there. And from the videos I've seen they are not intimidated by people.
I'd be standing across the room with my crossbow. The wall would be full of holes and spider guts. A little sheetrock mud, a little paint and it's seti 1 spiders 0...

Just watch out for the...
Cassowary

Snakes

I am not going to list all of the animals that fall under that part.


Still, you can find solace in the water, if you stay exactly where you are told to stay, otherwise...


Saltwater Crocodile

Sharks

Box Jellyfish

Snails

Blue-Ringed Octopus

But thats ok, because you should be safe with the cute...
Drop bears

Giant centipedes

Well... at least you can walk along the shore. Just be aware of the
Stonefish



All of these can be googled, all are located in aus, and this list was made as a joke, true as hell, but made for fun.
