Huh what?

We get Bushfires, Cyclones, Draught, Floods, Hailstorms (with hail as big as rugby balls :P), Tsumani's (yeah, we've had a few tsumani warnings go off here, tho luckily nothing bad came from them), heatwaves, and others... including idiotic tourist's :P

BTW Cyclones are basically beefed up Hurricanes :P

*cough*hurricanescyclonesandtyphoonsareregionalnamesbutarereallyexactlythesame*cough*

Your worst Cyclone ever killed 400 people (also the worst natural disaster in Australia). The US's worst hurricane on record killed over 8,000 and some estimates put it upwards of 12,000 (Galveston).

The worst flood in Australia killed 80, the worst in the US: 2000+. (The worst ever being in China at 1,000,000 good god)

0 Avalanches, Earthquakes, or Blizzards. Your heatwaves don't make the top 10 (the US has the honor of having 5 of them, more than anyone else).

Australia has one spot on the lists of 10 deadliest natural disasters for each disaster. The Black Saturday Brush fires took the 9th place with 173 deaths. Guess who took #1? The US, with a death toll in the thousands (along with taking 3 other spots on the list, more than anyone else).


Australia's natural disasters are a joke. Your animals might be trying to kill you, but that's about it.

Psh. Natural disasters? Australia? Say what? Australia is the safest continent when it comes to natural disasters by a large (huge actually) margin.

Welp, several more inches of snow here and it's still going. They completely missed the forecast on this one too. They were calling for less than an inch.

I'm basically locked in my apartment complex for this very reason. Though I can walk over to the grocery store if i absolutely have to.

Faking injury in American Football is steadily getting worse though. You won't often see a flop trying to get a foul in AF due to the difference in rules. AF fouls are very very clear cut and flopping just won't get you anything. Soccer fouls don't have the same clear cut definitions so flopping can call attention and get one called.

In AF you will see fake injuries used to get a "soft" time out when the other team has momentum. You see it more often in college and it is disgusting. A player lays on the field holding his right leg, the trainers run on the field and stretch it a bit, then the player limps off the field LIMPING ON THE WRONG LEG, then he proceeds to stop limping the instant he is on the sideline and returns to the game the next play. It is a horrid abuse of the rules that needs to start being punished. Watch a game that has a team that runs hurry up offense a lot (NCSU, Oregon, Arizona) and watch for the defense to cramp after a few down conversions.
