    I think the reason Sean Spewcer called Austria Australia is because they are right next to each other in alphabetical order.

    Face it, if you take the 'al' out of Australia, you'd both be the same country. So it's easy to see why someone in the current administration would have trouble telling the two apart.
    It is for this very reason that I have been campaigning hard to have the country change it's name. Some of the suggestions we have put forward are: Old Zealand, New New Zealand, West Island, and The Kangaroo Joint.

    We expect it would be much easier to change the name of this country than to get certain Americans to acknowledge that we are not Austria. At least they could confuse us with Asia, because that is closer.

    I don't even know why they call it New Zealand. Was there an original Zealand and it went the way of Atlantis? Or was the land no longer zealous enough so it needed new zeal?

    And Americans think of Asians as being more Oriental or Indian.


    Unlike this Australian girl.

    I think it was origionally called Zealand, and after a decline in tourism during the '50s they repainted the place and renamed it "New" Zealand.

    Cowboys and Orientals just doesn't have the same ring to it, does it?

    And how could you unlike that Australian girl?

    I could not unlike that girl.

    Technically she's Austrian, but, that's my point.

    If there are enough blondes and beer, what difference does it make which hemisphere you're on?

    Canadian being devoured by miniature dinosaurs. They have already eaten the horse hair from his bow because they didn't like his style of fiddle playing.

    Everyone involved has to have a great amount of patience because of the diminutive size of the monsters, which usually don't attack creatures 100x their size, except...

    When in Rome, do as the Romans. (Also, any port in a storm)

    It may take 20 years or so for the chameleonosaurus to kill a man by tickling his back, usually requiring numerous successive generations, but eventually, the victim succumbs.

    If this lad had challenged the croc to a game of chess, the croc would have him in three moves.

    Don't forget, we are all engaged in a battle to the death against mediocrity.

    Factually an American, though.

    You know your celebrities! I had not seen a single thing she appeared in. Maybe you know her from the video game? I didn't think Russia gets a lot of American TV programs.

    Besides The Apprentice

    But that further bolsters my point. "She has Italian, and some English and German ancestry".

    She could just as well be Scandanavian, Polish, Russian, Scottish, Irish. All pretty much the same.

    Put a dirndl on her and a large stein of beer in her hand and she's Austrian. Throw a couple of poisonous snakes on the ground and she's Australian.

    Erm, not me. The credit goes to Google image search. I had to find more photos!

    Besides The Apprentice
    I am a bit confused at this point what's the general consensus on who's who's apprentice atm.

    You mean, facial recognition software? I thought that was still science fiction. Is there a special method you use? because I can't seem to make it work (see results below).

    What would be more relevant to me would be music pattern recognition in which you could upload a melody and be provided with a match, if one is available.

    I put the image into image search and the results were not impressive.

    I got the same keyword suggestion, but below among junk entries there were a few pages where the name was mentioned, see picture:




    As for music recognition, I thought Shazam was something like what you describe?

    PS for some reason the "similar images" were different for me.
