Hi all,

I have been reading the numerous threads on this forum for a week or so now, so I decided to finally sign up. There are heaps of interesting things that you guys discuss, which I look forward to taking part in.


Take it easy!

Good to see a lot of friendly INTJs! (not that I ever doubted that INTJs were friendly underneath all that hardened steel armour). :P

I note the presence of an Aussie or two lurking about… it is true that no forum is perfect, but I sharnt let such a minor detail rain on my welcoming parade.




(I'm kidding, I love you Aussies really… I just had to, I couldn't resist).

Does NZ have a "drop bear" problem?

Elfrun

No, NZ has a drop beer problem, only Oz has drop 'bears', you guys and your funny talk, go on say bear... You can't can you... How about 'the drop bear wants six beers? ;D

South Island for me - CHCH to be exact (apologies for the delay in responding, have been away for a bit).

Neither.

*positions Aussie phonetics hat* :crowngrin:

Well...

You pronounce Bare and Bear correct and the same, they have an 'air' sound.

Beer however should have an 'ear' sound, that is if you wish to order one at a bar in 'Stralea without receiving odd looks and a snigger from the bartender.

Obviously I'm assuming you pronounce ear and air differently ;)

I've been experimenting and it seems to me that they sound the same. I blame the English language. :P
