An Australian woman discovered a gigantic 2ft earthworm after it was driven above ground by heavy rains
It would have to be a pretty big early bird to get that worm!
An Australian woman discovered a gigantic 2ft earthworm after it was driven above ground by torrential rains.
Kelli Mace posted a photo on Facebook of her holding the huge creature with two sticks after it emerged from the earth around Tamborine Mountain, Queensland, and it was soon picked up by Australian news outlets.
The area, which is covered in rain forest, is known for the massive species of worm, known as Digaster longmani, and which can grow up to 3ft long.
Usually they remain deep underground, but heavy rain across the Gold Coast area last week has driven the creatures from their borrows.
The region on the east coast of Australia saw particularly heavy rainfall on Friday when over an inch fell in 36 hours.
Ameristralia – If the U.S. and Australia unite…
Scientists in Australia have announced that global warming has completely ‘vanished’, after adjustments made to dodgy climate change data saw temperature readings plummet worldwide.
Recorded temperatures at the Bureau of Meteorology’s Thredbo Top automatic weather station dropped below -10C this week, after the fraudulent climate change data was amended by engineers.
The Australian.com.au reports: A record of the Thredbo Top station for 3am on Wednesday shows a temperature reading of -10.6C. This compares with the BoM’s monthly highlights for June and July, both showing a low of -9.6C.
The BoM said it had taken immediate action to replace the Thredbo station after concerns were raised that very low temperatures were not making it onto the official record. Controversy has dogged the bureau’s automatic weather station network since Goulburn man Lance Pigeon saw a -10.4C reading on the BoM’s website on July 2 automatically adjust to -10C, then disappear.
Later independent monitoring of the Thredbo Top station by scientist Jennifer Marohasy showed a recording of -10.6C vanish from the record.

Now this is something really awesome. Jeremy formally from British Top Gear, had come up with this crazy and original idea to organize a `drag challenge` between the world`s fastest road car, Nissan Skyline GTR and one of the fastest female athletes in the world, the Australian 100 meters champion, Michelle Jenneke.
I`m sure that the great Nissan GTR does not need much of introduction, except the raw facts that it is equipped with an engine that generates 485 HP, has four wheel drive, has perfect launch control and is one of the fastest road cars in the world.
And its opponent is Michelle Jenneke. For those of you who don`t know much about sports, except cars, this athlete is Australian 100 meters hurdles women`s champion, who actually became famous for her warm up routine before each race – her dancing moves.
So, according to Jeremy, the most important question in Motorsport – which is faster? A Nissan GTR or a woman?
Amazing Dominoes with bricks or how they lay bricks in Australia!
|An American woman of 40 wants to get married, but she is only willing to marry a man if he has never been (sexually) with a woman. After several unsuccessful years of searching, she decides to take out a personal ad.
She ends up corresponding with a man who has lived his entire life in the Australian Outback. They end up getting married.
On their wedding night, she goes into the bathroom to prepare for the festivities. When she returns to the bedroom, she finds her new husband standing in the middle of the room, naked, and all the furniture from the room piled in one corner.
“What happened?” she asks.
“I’ve never been with a woman” he says, “but if it’s anything like screwing a kangaroo… I’m gonna need all the room I can get!”

Running to the Watering Hole, Australia
I took my team of 13 Working Australian Kelpies for a run with our quad bike on our southern farm. Once I uttered the words, ‘go have a drink’, they took off full speed for the watering hole. Fit, healthy, well loved dogs enjoying life to the fullest. Filmed in Moora, Western Australia. The Australian Kelpie, or simply Kelpie, is an Australian sheep dog successful at mustering and droving with little or no guidance. It is a medium-sized dog and comes in a variety of colors. The Kelpie has been exported throughout the world and is used to muster livestock, primarily sheep, cattle and goats. The breed has been separated into two distinct varieties: the Show (or Bench) Kelpie and the Working Kelpie. The Show Kelpie is seen at conformation dog shows in some countries and is selected for appearance rather than working instinct, while the Working Kelpie is bred for working ability rather than appearance. The Working Kelpie comes in three coat types: smooth, short, and rough.
Aussie teens catch mud crabs by hand and have a seafood BBQ.
Even though it’s nearly March, it’s still pretty cold and nasty outside. Not so in Australia where it is averaging in the mid 70’s right now. And the Tarra Darra Brothers are enjoying every minute of the nice weather.
In this extended clip, the boys go hunting for mud crabs and have a seafood BBQ that makes Red Lobster look like, well, Red Lobster. Jealous? Yes.
