I noticed that the  dont do this thread has been removed .. why ?

I thought it was a good example of someone being really stupid and shows new pilots what NOT to do.

Weellll yeah...but ya can't have it both ways there bro
I think we pretty much told the poster that they were out of bounds and persona non grata sooo my guess is they deleted it...and I'd have to say I'd do the same if it were me.
Agree it was an example but ya know you don't have to stick your head up the south end of a steer to see how good the steaks are gonna be

'Ya know you don't have to stick your head up the south end of a steer to see how good the steaks are gonna be '

Nice turn of phrase.

Hah, you are doing pretty good so far. BTW, that would surely have to be a Texas saying..... WE have some similar gems here, but they often don't get understood overseas.

Well I played a Texan once upon a time...but yeah I suppose it is...myself I'm a West 'By God" Virginian thank you very much!  ...I've moved around a lot so I'm more American than just a state owned boy.

Oh yes you guys do...I love hearing them, not just reading them but hearing you all say them, they are a hoot!  ...yeah, back in the day before the internet most of us here were left wondering what in the hell a vegemite sandwich was for that matter what was vegemite...I know now more or less, and I don't think I'd care for it.  I also like using the ole throw a shrimp on the barbie or burger, dog, whatever...

There are hundreds more. Like:

1. May all your chooks turn into Emus and kick your dunny down.
2. He's got a few Kangaroos loose in the top paddock.
3. Go stick your head up a dead bear's bum.
4. I am as dry as a dead dingo's donger.

I'll leave to you to try and figure them out, sing out if you need help. BTW, we don't 'throw a shrimp on the barbie', because in our culture, a shrimp is about an inch long and considered nothing more than an appetiser, normally eaten in dozens. The real ones, large, we call prawns. Which then raises another favourite saying:

5. Don't come the raw prawn with me.

And Vegemite is an acquired taste. Most of us prefer to spread it thinly on toast in the morning for breakfast. Any Yank I have fed it to (properly prepared) loved it on toast.

You can crash burn your drone, and video record it all, for us... Haha

Just kidding, but yes, all those rediculous uncalculated drones going bust in the night, that may never be recovered, why? Who needs a reminder? Got spare time? RTFM

That's right, the age-old war of the concentrated yeast extract spread. Marmite, a British favorite and Vegemite, an Australian staple, are very much an acquired taste.

Vegimite is concidered as its own food group here in aus.
Nothing better than starting your day with vegimite on toast and a cup of coffee

1. I know what an Emus is, but I had to look up dunny...so it sounds like they are hoping bad on someone
2. Yes, they are a few sandwiches shy of a picnic
3. I'd say you really don't want to hear what they have to say cause they are being stupid...a dead bear's butt does not sound pleasant, even if it were alive
4. really really really really dry; knew what a dingo was, and figured what a donger was but looked it up nonetheless  

You all have way too many Ausie isms

Oh yeah and 5. don't shine me on...had to think on that one, seems like some twisted logic with it

One of my favorite books is "Enders  Shadow".  It's a companion to Enders Game (on DVD).  In the book the lead person, Bean, says "You don't have to eat the hole turd to know it's not a crab-cake".  Great line.

We didn't say all of them make sense. There are many, many more that I would not put up because they would be meaningless, and yeah, we have far too many of them.
