Australians dating americans
Mediocrity has long been our station, and for quite some time, our laurels made for a great resting place. The rest of the world is catching up––scientifically, economically, educationally––and unless we make some major systemic changes to the way we do business, they’re going to leave us in the dust. Still incredibly lame, and far behind the UK’s 80%, but a lot better than you may have heard. It doesn’t matter how many people have passports, but how many them. Germany was #1, with 86.6 million trips abroad…compared to a population of 80 million. And all that would make sense, except when you take a look at Canada, where a respectable 60% hold passports, and according to tourist receipt data from 2009, they spent about 1/3 as much as (USA) Americans did on travel, but with only 1/10 the population, which makes them approximately triple the travel junkies we are. We’re not #1 in any category worth winning, and a lot of the worst stereotypes about Americans are embarrassingly true. They thought it was silly to think humans would end up as severely fat, immobilized, and digitally entertained as the characters depicted in the film…whereupon I informed them that a certain percentage of our population has already achieved such a feat. But our current 2nd place fat trophy is no reason to cheer.
But recent research, including the Baja California study, indicates that the initial settlement of the continent was instead driven by Southeast Asians who occupied Australia 60,000 years ago and then expanded into the Americas about 13,500 years ago, prior to Mongoloid people arriving from northeast Asia.So why are we different here at Free Dating America?The simple truth is that, people like to explore the pool of singles by sifting through simple location based searches and not relying on an algorithm and a bunch of gimmicks, not to mention a cash grab, in order to find someone they like the look of.

Pell, 76, said the laying of charges had strengthened his resolve to prove his innocence.
And according to a (somewhat outdated) study that ranked countries according to number of trips abroad, the USA is in a respectable 3rd place. Compare that to the 58 million trips that Americans took abroad, and our 300 million people, and they turn out to be quintuple the travelers we are. And both are in North America, so I don’t think problems like expensive plane tickets are good enough excuses. (PS: Ever notice how Cold War era world maps quite often placed the United States in the center, in a Mercator projection, thus implying America was the center of the world, surrounded by enemies on all sides, who appeared much larger than they are in reality? ) I won’t trot out the parade of ignorant Americans saying silly things about whether Europe is a country or Africa is a planet or whatever. And this is to say nothing of the Americans who don’t know the Earth goes around the sun.
A frequent argument put forth is that travel expenditures correlate closely with income and proximity to international borders, and that’s true enough, except when our Canadian buddies are upstaging us 3 to 1. What bothers me far more than mere stupidity is the cultural prejudice that festers from this ignorance, and keeps millions of Americans irreparably distrustful of the outside world.
A study of skulls excavated from the tip of Baja California in Mexico suggests that the first Americans may not have been the ancestors of today's Amerindians, but another people who came from Southeast Asia and the southern Pacific area.
The question of who colonized the Americas, and when, has long been hotly debated.
American Indians resemble the people of Mongolia, China and Siberia.
