Australia's biggest contribution is a difference.
We're yobbs. We see Americans as stuck-up and Europe as old-school.
But, while being yobbs, we do not swoop to the level of the American hippie. We are laxy, but more like a greek lazy. We'll do it when the shit's about to hit the fan. Maybe that's because Melbourne is the biggest Greek population outside of Greece

Yap, Tea bags were invented by Thomas Sullivan around 1908. The first bags were made from silk. Sullivan was a tea and coffee merchant in New York who began packaging tea sample in tiny silk bags, but many customers brewed the tea in them (the tea-filled bag was placed directly into the boiling water where the tea brewed, instead of the traditional way of brewing loose tea in a teapot). Later tea bags were made of thin paper.Jonesy55 said:You invented the teabag? and you don't even drink much tea. We missed out on that one, should've been us :no:
