    Well, in this country fire is a way of life and death.

    There's nothing unnatural about it - some plants need it to seed. But I really didn't know that the birds were in on it, too. But I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise.

    Every last bit of wildlife in Australia is out to kill you.

    Yes but I thought "Kill it with fire!" was our mantra, not their's.

    Mind blown. Thank you so much V C Scafati for posting this article. I have seen remarkable evidence of avian intelligence, even tool use, but the use of fire has long been considered a human-only purview. Articles like this make life worth living. Consider me your newest follower.

    Oh that's not true. Some of our sharks are perfectly harmless.

    Grey Nurses are a bit pathetic. They are quite large, look dangerous, are very common around here, and won't harm you at all.

    I was saying the other day to a Christian Fundamentalist that there are no demons in Australia, the snakes got 'em all.
