Several I imagine, but not about Marmite for the first time in a cockpit!

And all those things that live there that try to kill you while you are getting to know the human population.

Aussies aren't worried about those things - but wave a jar of Marmite in front of them...

I thought Vegemite was a dual purpose cream that blocks the sun as well as preventing all those deadly creatures from attacking you. I didn't realise Australians actually ate that stuff.

All you Marmies need to do to convert the Aussies is give them a British passport. I was brought up on Vegemite, but the minute I graduated to a UK passport (and let my Aussie one lapse) I realised the superiority of Marmite. It was like a miracle! God doesn't spend all his time watching the bloody sparrows, you know.
