    I think they got us beat with those land crabs invading Christmas Island. I saw a documentary on them and they end up in peoples houses, eateries and seem to be everywhere. It’s impressive people can just ignore the wave of giant red crabs at a picnic, I get annoyed by the flies. I wish there was a good song about Christmas Island now would be a great time to put one up.

    I think Florida wins for one reason - every headline that starts with "Florida man..." ;)

    Australia: Python bites and drags five-year-old into pool

    A five-year-old Australian boy has survived being bitten, constricted and dragged into a swimming pool by a python about three times his size.

    Beau Blake was enjoying a swim at home when the 3m long (10ft) reptile struck, his father told a local radio station.

    The pair - still entangled - were pulled from the pool by Beau's grandfather and the boy was prised free from the animal by his dad Ben.

    But Beau is in good spirits and escaped with only minor injuries.

    1) Top middle is true
    2) Middle right is true (I can fly to Singapore, Japan, Thailand, Vietnam, Bali cheaper than QLD and Sydney)

    Thanks, but enquiring minds are most interested in the accuracy of the middle bottom map, other than the Wine Snobs qualification, which is, of course, accurate. :D

    Wow, who needs trip advisor or the lonely planet guide! That's the most accurate and useful OZ summation I have ever seen.

    The Kids, who made it through Childhood here, are tough. Jungles, like Wall Street for example, pose no challenges in life...
