i think i make a pretty good patriot. i'm not overly protective or stupid about it, but i also seem to get really defensive whenever one of my foreign friends makes a comment about australia being a prison.
i think its justified, after all, as i frequently remind the americans, SA was not settled by convicts, and i'm only part aus-heratige anyways (kiwi pride).
but, there's somethign about being degraded by a total stranger that makes me wanna bounce around like Tas Devil.
nothing wrong with that, is there?
