    "A massive 543 Australians were admitted to casualty in the last two years after opening bottles of beer with their teeth or eye socket."
    That's because they now use twist tops. Not like the good old days. Some just haven't sobered up yet.




    "3 Australians die each year testing if a 9V battery works on their
    tongue."
    /me serious here. HOW?? 9v isn't enough to kill.

    No Hipster I was telling you - but not telling you right - I meant to say it is the amperage that kills you - not the volts!

    Sorry I confused everyone - I must have had a "senior moment"!:D

    i think i read somewhere it said they didnt die due to the affect of the battery, but it had was due to other causes, or something along those lines!
