if you move your country over a little bit (because you are an island so it will be easy to move) say next to africa (or if you have the strength around africa and into the atlantic ocean) then you'll be just fine

Nah, that's OK - I just wanna move to Holland anyway! Besides, why can't we move Australia closer to Europe?

how are going to move a country? maybe wait 50 billion years for them to come together again. australia is the culmination of bicentennial festivities in which the mold acquired henceforth et forwith came into being.

it should start at 6pm not am. this is the first year i can't watch it all day because i have to work for my parents full time in my uni break. luckily my office has a tv so i can sneak a peak every 20 minutes or so with the volume down.
