Is ANYONE on this forum from outside of the US or Canada? Does anyone else care?

I believe I've seen some Brits and Aussies here...yes?

I recall a post from a girl in Japan.

Leo used to be a frequent poster, from Australia. His apogee was a bone-chilling minute-by-minute blow-by-blow account of near-riot conditions on New Year's Eve in Sydney. May he survive to do it for us again next year, if the Lord say the same...

I crashed here on while on a vacation from the Zeta-Reticula binary star system. It's weird here and the air smells funny!

I'm in Sydney. Haven't been around here as much as I'd like to, mainly because I'm trying to make my first million BEFORE the economy disintegrates (and am working 10-14 hours a day to that extent.)

Riot conditions in Sydney, 2000. Not something I want to think about. It was nasty enough last NYE. Can you imagine how shitty it'll be when power goes out and all those drunken hoons realise they can be assholes with impunity?

I'm from Sydney (New South Wales state), Australia. I bugged out 6 months ago to the boonies in Queensland state, some 1,000 kms (600 miles) northwards. Land is cheaper up here and population is much thinner.
