Melbourne is a pretty happening place. Gets pretty cold down there! They say you can get four seasons in one day in Melbourne.
It's one of the places that Sydney-siders love to hate. There's a lot of rivalry between the two cities ... you know "mine's bigger than yours" type of thing. The only good thing that comes out of Melbourne is the highway!
Do you guys have that sort of thing over there? Like people in New York hate people from some other city? Or people in one state don't like people from another state? Does the same go for sports?
EVERYONE hates NYers! Well, I should rephrase that. People OUTSIDE NY hate NYers and we hate them too (most of them anyways). We, in NY, even hate the fellow NYers. Cause like when you say you are from NY, that is to include NYC and Long Island. It DOES NOT include UP State NY!
I've gotten into fights with people over it, verbally. Just got into one physical fight but that kid, I punched him once in the head and he went down. He had a knot on the side of his head the next day the size of a softball.
But most people from NY know and understand the difference and will tell you exactly where they are from NY or NY State.
