Happy Australia day!!

Happy Australia Day, everyone!!

Now what the fuck does that mean?

I just saw it on my daily calendar. I guess I'll just go around saying "G'day, mate" all day.

It commemorates the landing of the first fleet in Australia. It's sort of like Columbus Day, if that holiday actually mattered to anyone. It's more akin to Independence Day in how big a holiday it is.

Anyway, eXcentris is right: it's over for the Australians.
