  3. Australia Banned a Kids’ Show Episode for Spreading Lies That Spiders Are Friendly

    ♫Spider-ban. Spider-ban.♫

  5. [UPDATED] Adam Baldwin’s Upcoming Appearance at Supanova Pop Culture Expo Incites Controversy

    For someone like Adam Baldwin, whose livelihood (and certainly his demand as a con guest) is fairly dependent on his relationship with fans, identifying as a Gamergater should be a career killer--and if women received the respect we deserve overall in nerd culture, it could be.

  6. Australian Cosplayer’s Stormtrooper Armor Stops Snakebite

    Of COURSE this was in Australia.

    "What kind of person creates armor that restricts the soldier's vision so much?" you ask idly, watching extras shuffle around in stormtrooper outfits. "ONE THAT UNDERSTANDS THE BEST GUARD AGAINST THE SERIOUS THREAT OF SPACE SNAKES," I interject, "IS CONSTANT VIGILANCE."

  7. Happy Boxing Day! Here’s A Kangaroo Punching A Drone Out Of The Sky

    You're welcome, Internet.

    This video was taken in Hunter Valley, Australia, and while the footage was salvaged, the device itself was damaged beyond repair. On the plus side, now little Timmy will probably feel a bit better about getting his new Christmas drone stuck in a tree already—or, if he's a different sort of kid, he'll be jealous that he didn't get any aerial kangaroo punching footage in the process. It could go either way.

  10. Monday Cute: Orphaned Australian Baby Bats, Rolled Into Tiny Bat-Ritos

    I believe in baby bat burritos.

    The Australian Bat Clinic and Wildlife Trauma Centre took in these baby flying foxes when their mothers were killed in an extreme heat wave. Swaddling the bats in fabric helps to nurture the infants until they are healthy enough to be released back into the wild.

  12. Duff Beer Banned in Australia Because Homer Makes Drinking Look Cool

    D'oh!

    Agent of S.T.Y.L.E.

    For generations, humanity has been fascinated by the power and destructive force of atomic weapons.

But what about the versions that preceded him? Let's take a look at the history of the heroes called Captain Atom, and a few related characters, from 1948 up to 1987.

  14. Australian Health Council Declares That Homeopathy Might Be Kinda Useless

    As long as they can ward off everything that's trying to kill them down there, they'll be okay.

    Holistic medicine fans just can't seem to catch a break lately. Just weeks after going head-to-head with Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia fame, now they've got the National Health and Medical Research Council to contend with, as the organization now claims that ‘there is no reliable evidence that homeopathy is effective for treating health conditions.’

  15. Look at This Giant Australian Bat and Tell Me Nightmares Aren’t Real

    This is not the Batman we needed. This is not anything we needed.

    Look, we know the whole "nature-you-scary" angle is played out, but you guys: Look. At. This. Australian. Bat. He is the size of Batkid. He could be a bat on which Batkid rides to the scene of crimes. He could be a Batkidmobile. But he will never be, because this freaking enormous bat is now dead.

  16. Watch This Ten-Foot Snake Devour A Crocodile, Alarm Humans [Video]

    Apparently living in Australia is like living inside an Asylum movie.

    Yesterday visitors to Australia's Lake Moondarra witnessed a 5 hour struggle between a ten-foot snake and its crocodile prey. As a reminder that nature is insane, here's some footage and images of the snake holding the crocodile tighter than its true love before dragging it onto land for lunch.

  19. If You Don’t Stay In School In Australia, You Will End Up In A Horror Film And Die

    Which is actually one of the least terrifying ways to die in Australia.

    Educational ads usually say, "stay in school or else you'll be unemployed and sad all the time," though that's also applicable to most university grads I know. In Australia, though, they're not satisfied with vague threats about your career and your future; oh no, they want you to know that if you drop out of school, you will die a horrible death.
