No country is perfect, but I like a lot of things about this place.'”

        1. I feel sorry for you. Truth doesn’t change just because you decide that you don’t want to believe it. There are absolute truths wether you chose to accept them or reject them is up to you. However, there are consequences for rejecting them and you’ll suffer those consequences wether you believe it or not. The sad thing is that you’ll have a very long time to regret your decision. For your sake, please reconsider.

          1. The truth did not change.

            Just like kids finally realize Santa isn’t real they figure out that the Old Jewish Book of Tales (thanks, Bill Maher) is fiction as well. The universe and the earth reveal themselves as something very different than anything described in any holy book.

            Steve Jobs- as smart as he was- delayed medical treatment for 6 months of prayer, fasting and things other than scientific medicine. In all likelihood, the delay was a death sentence- neuroendocrine tumors are not cured by sky gods, fasting, funky diets or healers.

            Peace to all. Festivus for the rest of us.

  1. I don’t blame Woz one bit. I worked on a movie on the Gold Coast and stayed in a place near Surfer’s Paradise and I LOVED it down there! Cannes, Port Douglas and all the other fantastic coastal areas circling the country are pretty awesome and beautiful. Brisbane with it’s waterways is pretty amazing too. The oldest tropical rain forests, the Great Barrier Reef – it spoiled me for Maui which did not seem nearly as “tropical” nor as unspoiled. The Aussie women aren’t bad to look at either…

  2. Hopefully, he will reside deep in the outback beside a little billabong with no road access, no radio service, and no electricity.

    That should cut down on his ridiculous commentary a bit.

  3. Woz needs to drag his arrogant arse back to someplace that will consider him useful. Self-appointed genius is not respected in Oz. Besides he’ll always be a GDY (Aussies will know what that means). Woz, you may be able to buy your way in but you’ll never be an Aussie. Go back to your fake garage and do something useful in this century. Your sojourn on DWTS was proof that you will do anything to suck to suds from a flat beer. Hoo roo.

    1. “Besides he’ll always be a GDY”

      This god damn yankee is more than happy to stay right here and have the ability to protect himself, unlike you pussies who allowed your liberal politicians to put you in the same situation as the U.K.

      Be careful in those cafes Aussie boy.

      1. And you’re also welcome to stay in a country with one of the highest rates of mass killings by firearm in the world.
        I’m sure Woz and his family will enjoy living in a country that has had zero such incidents since outlawing the possession of assault weapons by private citizens.
