  • OT - Where is OZ?

    I see "OZ" all the time here (and elsewhere too), but the context has never unmistakeably revealed whether it's Australia, or New Zealand. or both.

    Where are you, OZ?

    It's a magical land with wizards and etc. Only accessible via tornado.

        Who cares!!

        Why would you want to know? Read the posts from the land of OZ. Those guys don't know anything and do everything backwards. I am surprised they even know how to log on to this site!

            When we moved into our new home the toilets had been imported from OZ, I told the wife that it was so the water would swirl counter-clockwise and flush better.
            I cut it twice, and it's still too short!

                People from Australia are known as Aussies so by reverse logic Aussies must come from the land of Aus, pronounced OZ.

                The only similarity between the musical and the actual place is that they both have more than their fair share of weirdoes.

                      Dissapoints me to read the replys here to this thread.
                      I had liked this site as it offered some great responces to engineering questions.
                      Did not belive my eyes as I read the responces to lynnl question.

                      And Black Forest your responce was the worst, a responce from a country that lost two wars and only claim to fame is Adolf Hitler.

                          So you may be slightly of base with that comment.

                            Not one to argue....but I can think of at least two other things.

                              Hey Keith, are you from OZ?

                              And if you want to hammer me please learn to spell. It is response not responce!

                              Everyone is having fun and no one but you is taking any of the replies as an insult.

                              And you have forgotten the Mercedes Benz!

                              The guys from OZ won't understand the insults.
