We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to share the most Australian things they've ever done. Here are the true blue results.
An actual drop bear, a koala fell out of a tree and missed a friend by about a metre.
I once nearly drove straight into a bushfire beside the highway when a huntsman spider crawled out of the AC vent of my car. My brother, who was travelling with me, beat it to death with one of his thongs while I was shrieking my head off and fighting the strong urge to leap out of the moving vehicle.
Went into our shed to grab some rope but grabbed a brown snake instead.
Pretty much every Australia Day: Goon of Fortune on the Hills Hoist, kangaroo steaks on the barbie, Triple J Hottest 100 blasting on the stereo, slip 'n' slide setup in the backyard and greeting everyone that arrives with, "Hey cunt! Want a beer, mate?"So, yeah. Straya everyday, mate.
I've been stuck in a traffic jam down a dirt road that consisted of - two headers, me in a ute carting an airman, dad behind me in a ute carting a fuel trailer. The best thing was, we were all stuck behind a mob of sheep.
A giant cockroach once set off my house alarm at 2 in the morning... my mum was standing at the top of the stairs holding a cricket bat to whack an intruder.
I once was at a mates place and we went to the milk bar on a scorcher of a day in our thongs and bought water balloons. On our way home we managed to pick an inter-street all-out water fight with a family a street or two over. So we spent the arvo fighting these random neighbors who we had never met before and will never meet again, we don't even know their names. There was like 4 or 5 of us teenage boys against a young (5yo?) kid, his dad and his mates. Fuckin' intense trying to run to their house sprinting in thongs while the maggie was swooping overhead.Good times...
Walking into my brother's room to see a big massive huntsman on the wall. I scream, he turns around and says "oh yeah, I call him Bob."
My dad once hit a kookaburra with a frying pan. It was trying to eat the bacon.

I've seen a snake drown in my pool.
We didn't have a pool and it was a hot summer's day, so we put a tarp in the back of the ute and filled it up with water.
Drinking out of the tap on the side of the house on a hot summer's day as a kid and having a red belly wrap itself around my ankle and decide to go for a nap for half an hour while I stood dead still trying to get my mum's attention. Also being chased by a frill neck and the giant centipedes that were in the shower that my dad mistook for one my brother's toys until it moved.
Rode in a kangaroo's pouch while wearing a cork brimmed hat and drinking a Foster's.
