These dickheads have since been deported and charges dropped (which is ridiculous cos if they were Malaysians they’d be punished, but ~white boys~), but some dickhead Australian men stripped at the F1 in Malaysia committing the sins of a) almost nudity and b) an insult to the Malaysian flag.

    I found a great article in the West Australian about a rare birb sighting! A lady in Mt. Lawley, Perth found a leucistic willie wagtail in her backyard. A leucistic birb is different to an albino birb, and it causes its plumage to become white or pale. The picture was of a very cute white and grey willie wagtail. Hope the Margaret and David of birb watching appreciate this.
