Julia Gillard is a pretty awesome prime minister. The Aussie PM has been chased by a violent mob and delivered an epic rant against the opposition leader calling him a misogynist. That was all this year, and now the PM has confirmed the Mayans are right and the world is coming to an end.
Australia’s all-time leading Test batsman and most successful captain, Ricky Ponting, has announced his retirement from international cricket. He had already called a halt on his captaincy of the Test and one-day team in March last year, but continued on as a player.

A warm-up routine by an Australian hurdler has racked up nearly 500 000 views in the past two days on YouTube. Michelle Jenneke was filmed just before her race during the IAAF World Junior Championship last weekend in Barcelona.
The video shows her smiling, hopping up and down, wiggling her hips, and waving to the crowd. Thanks to some super corny music that was added to the footage, along with slowing down some of her movements, we now have a video titled: The Hottest Hurdler Ever”.
But did her enthusiastic preparation help? Hell yes! Check her out – soaring past her competitors, and flying ahead to win first place!

The Scottish are not known to be the “winningest” of teams. So when a victory does come along, especially against a team like Australia, a celebration is in order. Sometimes, though, this gets taken just a little too far. It’s all fun and games until a flanker and a wing bash their heads open.

Julian Assange has found a way to run for the Upper House of the Australian Senate, in spite of, you know, being detained under house arrest in Britain. Which makes sense, I guess. Along with Assange’s candidacy, WikiLeaks announced on Twitter that they’ll be running a nominee against the current Prime Minister, Julia Gillard.
This really does look like a scene from a horrific, science-fiction film in which spiders take over the world. Unfortunately for arachnaphobes, and most of Wagga Wagga’s population, it’s very real, and is the result of spiders escaping floodwaters.
Diamonds are one of the world’s great fascinations. They enchant, mesmerise and sparkle. Nothing quite says “piss off, I’m rich” like a big rock. Not all diamonds are equal either – pink diamonds are the rarest of them all, accounting for only 0,1% of all cut diamonds.

Those Aussies just need to be the best at everything, don’t they? Except, a British medical journal recently revealed that Australia and New Zealand also top the global charts for usage of marijuana and methamphetamine! Awkward!
