You are discussing polar bears or something (I cant understand). It looks funny country, In Turkey, There are only dogs and cats

But the real problem, There are a lot of snakes in Australia. How can Australians get rid of snakes ?

Why get rid of snakes? They were here before we were. There have only been ten fatalities from snakebites in the last fifteen years. In the USA there have been fifteen. Why are people so worried about snakes in Australia but not the USA?

Because Australia looks less Urbanized to America. (I don't know real)

Also Australia have a lot of different crazy animals so It looks more "Exotic"

I would not worry about snakes, sharks more, though there is a tale of a regiment lost to one of Australia's more prolific man-eating residents not far away. I have never been, but if swimming or sunbathing on the north shore, I confess my fear there is something to it.

I lived in Australia for 6 months, back in 1970... a great experience, I was 12...

My dad had come over a year earlier in a semi-retirement gig as the head dentist in a mobile dental unit in Western Australia. He and his team traveled east from Perth into the gold and iron mine areas of the Outback... several towns without dentists back then... Southern Cross, Coolgardie, Kalgoorlie, Menzies, Leonora and Laverton. After his gig ended he came back to California and got me to go back with him where he had a job lined up in Darwin at a new dental clinic there, at the top of Australia's Northern Territory.

We flew to New Zealand first, where I got the visa for Australia, then into Sydney (it was New Years Eve 1970). Then we flew to Perth (on Ansett ANA), my dad bought a car (a Holden Monaro) and we retraced his earlier route in the Outback before our drive to Darwin. In 1970, the paved highway ended at the border with South Australia and it was a wide, graded dirt road for the next several hundred miles across South Australia and up north to Alice Springs. We took a side trip to visit Ayers Rock and I climbed to the top (with others in a tour we were on). The paved road on to Darwin took us from red deserts to tropical jungles. We got a 'flat' (apartment) in Darwin, and I enrolled in school.... lot's of interesting differences between Darwin and San Diego living, but I can save that for another day!

"I want to be a doctor (because of their pays) in the future, but the problem is I have verbal intelligence, and Medicine needs the other intelligence (digital, or numerical, I'm not sure. Number-loving guys) type. So My way is too hard, I don't know anything about my future."

(If able) you should do what you want to do (heart) and good at, not do different just for pay. But i know that in this modern western "new right" world it is hard for many of us and we have to do what we can/forced for the money.

On the english language, we have a little issues here in NZ of not being able to understand some people not because of them not knowing English (they do have enough to get by) but because of the foreign accent making it really hard to undertsand what saying. Otherwise it is easy enough to pick-up english language.
(Ironically, people don't understand me alot in written because i don't have very good english writing skills.)

re the comments/replies a bout fluoride "facts" (Fluoride FAQs) and "some whack job on the internet not proper scientific studies" and the "You can buy water in the markets. Things that don't kill us makes us stronger. I don't hear any death for Fluoridation.":
See my new blog post in histrum blogs shortly (&/or see my web/net blog (link in profile), &/or see the other side's info sources not just the regime's).
And compare "genocide anything which harms us/our culture."

Sorry for the slightly off-topic and for the negative. I just meant to show that there are things to consider re shifting and re studies for some of us that people often don't mention. I actually meant the fluoride as a positive informing you/people.
I have always liked Australia ever since i was a child, though i have never been there. (The socio-economic/etc system is seemingly much same as here though re my comments.)

I like Turkish green lentils.

Maybe most Americans likely to encounter snakes here know what they look like. We're raised on identifying the "arrowhead" shape of the head of a dangerous snake since all but one species of poisonous snakes in this country are pit vipers. That, and some of the bad ones in Australia are so damned big.
