that had made ''South Park'' so popular. He said the episode was particularly notable for its graphic violence: "Most sitcoms would have a problem doing an episode in which one regular character slices another regular character in half with a chainsaw. Not ''South Park''." Mike Higgins of ''The Independent'' said this episode helped "cement (Eric Cartman's) position as one of the great, obnoxious characters of the Nineties", particularly

The pilot sat forward of the hopper over the wing leading edge, a position which gave a good field of view compared with the American practise of placing the pilot behind the hopper, though this view was somewhat restricted by the extensive canopy joinery and bulky rear decking. The Agricola's handling was generally described favourably, particularly its slow speed performance and controls, while its rugged and simple construction allowed for easy maintenance and repair. The aircraft was utilitarian rather than attractive; one web site has short-listed the Agricola in a competition for the ugliest aircraft of all time Commons:Category:Australia Wikipedia:Australia Dmoz:Regional Oceania Australia


drinking quot

In Australia a number of cheaper bottled and box wines are produced by Australian vineyards and sold as "Lambrusco". They are typically medium-sweet, around 10% ABV (Alcohol by volume) and styled as an "easy drinking" product. In Argentina, Lambrusco Maestri accounts for several hundred planted hectares. International Rules Boylan coached the Ireland team in the 2006 International Rules Series against Australia in two games in Pearse Stadium, Salthill, Galway and Croke Park, Dublin in October, 2006. Australia won the series by 30 points but the game was overshadowed by violent incidents in the first quarter of the second test match, including a serious injury sustained by Graham Geraghty (Graham Geraghty (footballer)). He also admitted that he brought his players off at the end of the first quarter in protest and did not want them to return, later saying "I said I'd do it. Only the players themselves changed my mind. They said they wanted to go out and give it a go, they wanted to play football." Overview The term is most widely applied to describe a road junction in which the direct flow of traffic on one or more of the roads is not disrupted. Instead of a direct connection, traffic must use ''on'' and ''off ramps'' (United States, Australia, New Zealand) or ''slip roads'' (United Kingdom, Ireland) to access the other roads at the junction. The road which carries on through the junction can also be referred to as '''''grade separated'''''. History In 1965, The Strangeloves, a rock band who purported to be from Australia, decided to make the song the follow-up to their hit single "I Want Candy", and began performing the song in concert. However, the Dave Clark Five, with whom they were touring, told the Strangeloves that they were going to record their own version of the song, copying the Strangeloves' arrangement. The Strangeloves realized that the Dave Clark Five's version would probably outsell their own, but they were still enjoying success with "I Want Candy" and did not want to release a new single yet. So the trio—who were, in reality, three successful writer producers from Brooklyn, New York— recruited a group from Union City, Indiana, Rick and the Raiders, to record the song instead. The group's name was changed to The McCoys (to avoid confusion with another popular band of the era, Paul Revere and the Raiders), and their 16-year-old leader, Rick Zehringer, became known as Rick Derringer. The group added vocals and a guitar solo to the already-completed Strangeloves backing track, and the single was released on Bang Records. It entered the chart on August 14, 1965, effectively beating the Dave Clark Five to the charts. The single went on to hit number one on October 2. Use in Australian sport In Australia, the word "guernsey" is used to describe the usually sleeveless shirt worn by Australian rules football players, although the word “jumper” is also commonly used.

Australia

'''Australia''' is an Oceanian country comprising the mainland of the Australian continent (Australia (continent)), the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands (list of islands of Australia). It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area (List of countries and dependencies by area). Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands and Vanuatu to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east.

For at least 40,000 years who spoke languages grouped into roughly 250 language groups (Australian Aboriginal languages). Walsh, Michael (1991) "Overview of indigenous languages of Australia" in Suzane Romaine (ed.) ''Language in Australia'', Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, ISBN 0-521-33983-9. After the European discovery of the continent by Dutch (Dutch Republic) explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) in 1770 and initially settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing crown colonies were established.

On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated (Federation of Australia), forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic (liberal democracy) political system that functions as a federal (Federalism) parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy comprising six states and several territories (States and territories of Australia). The population of 23.6 million is highly urbanised (Urbanization) and heavily concentrated in the eastern states (Eastern states of Australia) and on the coast.

Australia is a developed country and one of the wealthiest in the world, with the world's 12th-largest economy (List of countries by GDP (nominal)). In 2012 Australia had the world's fifth-highest per capita income (List of countries by GDP (nominal) per capita). Data refer mostly to the year 2012. World Economic Outlook Database-October 2013, International Monetary Fund. Accessed on 8 October 2013. Australia's military expenditure is the world's 13th-largest (List of countries by military expenditures). With the second-highest human development index globally (List of countries by Human Development Index), Australia ranks highly (International rankings of Australia) in many international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties and political rights. Australia is a member of the United Nations, G20 (G-20 major economies), Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, and the Pacific Islands Forum.
