I completely agree akushla, two of my children wont go to uni, two will. I can already see it.

If they are happy, well adjusted people, I could give two hits about those stats.




Ahhh Uni (looks up to the sky, dreamily).
I could've done without it myself...still, i met some lifelong friends.
Life experience is probably just as important; you know this though.

Did you actually read the link you provided?

en.wikipedia.org...

Australia has a literacy rate of 99%, exactly the same as France, Germany, UK, USA, Japan, Netherlands and numerous other countries.

So come on, please do provide another equally informative link to support your allegation.


1% is totally not acceptable. That is 200,000 people.

Not flash

His point is that it makes him feel special to put down others who cannot spell as well as His Highness.


It does not. You may be good at grammar, but you could touch up on philosophy.

It is only a suggestion though as, really it is about your choices and how you prefer to experience your choices.

Twas the post of the spelling and not of the grammer that was conceived.
but most, will avoid the truth.


Well, "guessing" nearly had us going, until he got to this gem, in his/her 4th post.

It is spelt "Grammar", dear guessing, not Grammer !!!

Epic Fail !!!...just like this post.

Perhaps one should educate one's self, on the difference between English Spelling, and Americanisms of made up phonetic spelling. eg correct spelling.."Colour"...Conversely, the American abortion "Color".
Fortunately, "Grammer" does not exist in the Americanisms...Unless your first name is Kelsey.

Oh Yes, by the way...Spelt is correct in English...but in Americanisms you would say...spelled

Have a nice day.

I'm just going with troll.

The fact that his grammar has been pointed out to him and he ignores this, claiming that spelling is more important than forming a correct sentence, is all the proof I need of his obvious trollish tendancies.

But Australia is no better or worse than most other countries in the world of comparative status / wealth etc.

I suspect you made an assumption and are now trying desperately to find evidence to support your arguement but are struggling because there simply isn't any!

Even if you posted examples of poor spelling here on ATS by Australians I'd bet you a pound to a penny I could find signifcantly more from people of other nationalities.

This thread is a joke and further evidence of how it is becoming increasingly common and acceptable to make any random claim or accusation etc here on ATS without offering any supportive evidence or reasoned thought and arguement.

ETA.
Sorry, there is one very good side to this thread and that is the quality and number of humorous posts extracting the urine out of the OP

Good point Kryties

Troll would also be a suitable label for the OP

Have you no sense of humor at all?!

Stick your chin out and cop it like a good bloke would at the pub, or a cruizy sheila.
It's just fun, best laugh I've had on ATS from the start.
They could all do with an injection of OZ humour.
Remember....Happiest place on Earth!!

Get those stats into ya'!!
