Australia

rubrika: English Corner


Somewhere outside of all major continents, where the human species normally lives, there is one smaller continent called Australia.

cairns-kangaroo-sign-next-to-the-highway-australia.jpgThere live Kangaroos, descendants of the older human tribes and descendants of the newer tribes from the major continents. The name Australia is derived from the Latin word Australis meaning to the south. Most of Australia is covered by deserts and semi-deserts. Recently I activated on Google maps the Street View, and from somewhere in the center of this small continent (near Alice Springs) I started a virtual car tour to the northern coast, where is situated Darwin. I expected that when approaching the coast in sight of tropical islands, the desert or semi-desert would be changing in tropical landscape change. Finally I received it almost in front of the gates of Darwin, almost at the coast.

Australia is notable because I can't recall that, in connection with this country, I've ever heard of some of the nasty social events, which are familiar in other continents. Any religious, ideological or other paranoic wars. Australians don't expand, don't attack anyone, living there for themselves and struggle only with the forest fires. Of course, there where the forests are most Australians live. In the deserts or waterless scrub (mainly in the Northern Territory), on the other hand, live the original inhabitants, aborigines. Assuredly, I a little bit idealize it, criminals are everywhere and Australia was in the early modern age the punishment camp. But nothing so horrible what has happened in recent years, and somewhere it still takes place in other parts of the world, I've never noticed in connection with Australia.

Thanks to my profession I have met several interesting colleagues. One of them was amazing and, for some time, he was visiting conferences with a plush kangaroo, which always stood up to the rhetorical pulpit when it came to his oral contribution. Introduction of his speaking presentation, which always involved very interesting and high-quality results from our field, always started with humorous and honest ideas using his plush kangaroo as a symbol of Australia.

One of the most amazing weapons ever invented, invented the original inhabitants of Australia - uncle Google told me that it was invented elsewhere, but I have it connected with Australia. As you certainly know, this weapon is a boomerang. When someone gets you angry, so throw on him boomerang, his head will nearly be broken and the boomerang will obediently come back into your hand. We have to learn from them.

Australia is indeed small continent, but also a big country. Its original inhabitants, who had arrived from Asia across the tropical islands, kangaroos, and the modern inhabitants, who mostly arrived at the beginning of colonization in the form of criminals, today form the essence of this wonderful country.

I fell in love with Australia. It's sort of platonic love, I've never been there. And so in that direction, at least, I'm sending my greeting.


Salute Australia

Pavlíno, samozřejmě že nemyslím, dělám si legraci, je to taková nadsázka. Ve skutečnosti jsem měl na mysli něco jako "trestný bumerang"

http://www.neviditelnycert.cz/blog/pel-mel/1417-trestny-bumerang.html

Seriál Xena jsem kdysi kousek viděl, Zaujali mě tam však spíš pohyby Xeny, než pohyby jejího bumerangu.

Úžasný

Opravdu si myslite, ze kdyz bumerang neco/nekoho zasahne, tak se vam vrati do ruky? To jste videl v serialu Xena, ne? Smějící se

Hezký večer pro Čertíka a dalši slušné lidi, kteří navštíví tento portál v daleké budoucnosti.
Já za sebe prohlašuju, že jsem tak nějak zvláštně spokojený, až do absolutního štastna, tak jak nikdy v životě dosavadním.
Zde nikoliv poprvé.
Nádherná země a celkem spokojení lidé přemýšlející v úplně jiném levelu, než u Vás.
Dost často jim závidím...
Žij a užij dokad žiješ.
