You know you're an Australian when......

  1. You know you're in an Australian summer when.....
    * The best parking place is determined by shade instead of distance.
    * Hot water now comes out of both taps.
    * You learn that a seat belt buckle makes a pretty good branding iron.
    * The temperature drops below 35 degrees and you feel a little chilly.
    * You discover that in February it only takes 2 fingers to steer your car.
    * You develop a fear of metal car door handles.
    * You break a sweat the instant you step outside at 06:30am.
    * Your biggest bicycle-accident fear is, "What if I get knocked out and
    end up lying on the pavement and cook to death?"
    * Farmers are feeding their chickens crushed ice to keep them from
    laying hard-boiled eggs.
    * The cows are giving evaporated milk.
    * The trees are whistling for the dogs.
