    18 Satisfying Things Non-Australians Will Just Never Understand

    Say it with me: "Ohhhhhh yeaaaaahhhh."

    1. Dipping a clean knife into the smooth, dark, beautifully tar-like surface of a new jar of Vegemite.

    2. Cracking open a fresh tin of Milo and peeling back the foil.

    3. Snipping the end off a Zooper Dooper and sucking out the little knobby bit that is stuck in the tip.

    4. Screaming "no way get fucked fuck off" in the chorus of "Am I Ever Going To See Your Face Again".

    Is this just an Australian thing To sing "no way get fucked fuck off" to the don't "am I ever gonna see Ur face again"

    Also "Alice? Who the fuck is Alice?" during "Living Next Door To Alice".

    5. And singing Daryl Braithwaite's "The Horses" at every opportunity.

    6. Plus, just, like, listening to "Untouched" by The Veronicas.

    Those violins!!!

    7. Starting and responding to the "Aussie, Aussie, Aussie" chant in literally any situation – especially when overseas.

    It's basically how we say "I love you" and I think that's beautiful.

    8. Feeling the cool change hit when it's been an oppressively hot all day.

    Honestly, this is better than sex.

    9. Finally getting access to cultural products that have been withheld from us for too long.

    himym, greys anatomy and buffy on stan??? I’m fucking dEAD

    Why do we always get LESS of everything/have to wait? We're impatient, petty and jealous, dammit.

    10. Oh, and finding a good VPN that actually works, or a decent pirated link.

    Like I said, we're impatient, petty and jealous.

    11. Actually getting tickets to see the few international acts who tour here.

    Sydney’s inner-west tonight is just people walking around in a daze, asking each other if they got Lizzo tickets, stumped that no one can find a real person who nabbed one.

    Shout out to all the mythical unicorns seeing Lizzo! If you need a plus one, ya girl is free.

    12. Going through the drive-thru at Macca's when there's no cars in front of you.

    13. Scoring a good bargain, even if it's not what you actually wanted to buy in the first place.

    before i moved out i used to turn my nose up at aldi and now i’m preordering their special buys

    "It was on special at Aldi" – Ancient Australian proverb.

    14. Fooling anyone from overseas about, well, everything. Especially if they're American.

    15. And on the flip side, being noticed by people overseas (again, especially Americans) at all.

    Don't Australians love it when the Americans pay attention to us!

    "What? We made American news? An Australia actor/musician is big in America? Americans are now making flat whites? THIS IS THE GREATEST THING TO HAPPEN TO THIS COUNTRY."

    16. Squeezing tomato sauce out of those little double-sided packets.

    17. Spotting fairy bread at a party.

    18. And, of course, going to Bunnings for a sausage sizzle.
