It seems Aussies are the booziest daters in the world.
An international survey has found that 80 percent of Australian men and 70 percent of women admit to drinking too much when trying to impress the opposite sex.

It has also found people across the Tasman [Australians] are the [B]least likely to find intelligence a turn on.

[least likely to find intelligence full stop]


This would explain alot.

What happened that old rule that pilots were not allowed to drink intoxicants within 100 feet of an aircraft?

It's a bit deeper than that I'm afraid.

We're basically a shy, retiring culture & don't normally "push our own barrow" so, dating can be excruciating. A little bit of amber courage just before we head out...okay, perhaps a lot...keg...gives us all the fortitude we need. Just like our pilots when they head off to work!

Getting dated in The Albury pub in Oxford St Sydney is a distinct possibility.

Don't care about the 80% of blokes, but the fact that 70% of women here drink too much on dates is music to the ears...

...and I'm looking forward to the ladies making a push for equality in this important area! :E

Bruce came back one night after a session in the bar with the lads to find Sheila crying her eyes out.

"What's wrong, Sheila?" says Bruce

"Bruce, I'm pregnant, and if you don't marry me I'm going to throw myself off the Sydney Harbour Bridge" wailed Sheila.

"Sheila, you're not only a good f:mad: ck, you're a good sport, too" said Bruce.

Coat, hat etc.
