    I was beat to it. Was going to demonstrate how pathetically bad Americans are at geography by saying: "Welcome, I used to live down under for a couple years." But CardCubFan beat me to the joke, and with something even better. At least I hope it was a joke.

    Welcome and Nice to have you amongst us. Bare with some of the negativity you will read on hear. Most of us are such long suffering Card fans. That first game and year you watched the Cardinals was a good one. We all loved our team with Larry, Anquan, and Kurt together. Certainly one of our favorites.

    Damn it, I honestly was on the fence with this one, but given that I have never heard that phrase I should probably watch Crocodile Dundee without german dub one day ;)

    Welcome. Always great to gain more global diversity. I’ll have a bottle of your F.X. Pichler 'Unendlich' Riesling.

    Love Austria! Spent two weeks there 15 years ago as part of the Master's program from WP Carey School of Business.

    Went to the opera, spent some time with the Finance Minister, visited Salzburg (amazing), the Monistary winery, Mauthausen, and more.

    Can't wait to visit again!

    Per "shrimp on the barbie" the clip from the movie would have helped:)

    Wow, what a...snide way to welcome someone to the board while insulting other posters. But winking makes it better? smh Thanks for the @, @BritCard, I guess?

    Welcome to the board, @AustrianCardFan! As you can see, we're like a giant family here lol Also, newbies buy dinner, but I don't want anything but schnitzel with mushroom gravy. Schnitzel for an appetizer, a main dish, and desert. Nothing to drink--the gravy will suffice. Oh, I guess we can throw in some pomme frites to dip in the gravy, too.

    Welcome!

    I’d be really interested to see how many countries are represented on this board. Is there any way to find that out? We should try to get someone from as many countries as possible.

    I'd really love to get back to Europe and visit Vienna. I went to loads of countries while stationed in Germany, but literally only got to stop at a bus stop in Austria :(

    That's really unfortunate. I think that Salzburg and Vienna are always worth a visit, even if it is only for a couple of days.
    Many people don't know but there are actually a few surveys, that place Vienna at number 1 in a quality of living ranking. For example the Mercer study:

    Ooh, I forgot Salzburg! Gah, there are so many incredible landmarks and cities in Europe to visit that I guess it's impossible to get to all of them. Well, once I'm an exceedingly rich spec fic writer, I'll get there :D

    Mm hm, figured that would be the reply, to (try to) turn it around on me. Pretending a lame joke by adding a winking smiley to welcome another poster to the board? Yeesh.
