It’s rare to see good sportsmanship these days, so I have to give those kids credit. Both of those kids have compassion, so I’d say the parents are doing a good job. Nice doom break.

Well Aust went full blown nazi during covid…. Then theres that…
Cops beat up people for no mask….regardless that masks dont filter viruses. Cops seemed to enjoy that.
They also put unvaxxed people in camps….
The 5 eyes countries made NoKo look like disney land

Lol . I can only speak for where I live but in West aus cops carried masks and informed people to put em on .
A more likely scenario . Cop hands dude mask , put it on . No way fuck you blablabla . Cop beats shit out of person for being aggressive .
Pretty sure it isn't just Australia where that happens

Lol, this one didn’t exactly go as planned. I would say that given the VOLUMES of examples one could choose from to make the same point about American children/young men/ people, this was hardly that compelling.

I would also say as a lover of Aussie women and a spellbound traveller to the East Coast, from Melbourne to Cairns & the GBR, I am a huge fan of AUS, but others have adequately pointed out the Aussies are no different in the “pussy” department as a number of Americans are in submitting to questionable authority… if not, much worse.

I got beaned in the head in little league. Hit me right below where the helmet covered. There were tears, of anger when I took the walk. Next time at bat that pitcher was going to die. The ball went right over his head, even though I was aiming lower. That was my only home run.

He wasn't getting any hugs.

I dunno, when I worked for a rifle action company in TX we shipped actions to eleven different countries and all of them except one had a 66lb postal weight limit on single packages. Australia's package limit was 44lb... I used to tease them - 'Ain't y'all them guys with the big ass cans of beer?!?'
