    Travel Advisory to USA

    For those Australians thinking of visiting the USA with your family to spend your high Aussie dollar, you might like to consider that you have not twice the chance, or 3 times the chance, or 4 times, or 5 times, or 6 times, or 7 times or 8 times, or 9 times, or 10 times, or 11 times, or 12 times, or 13 times, or 14 times, but fifteen times the chance of being shot to death in the USA than Australia.

    Probably depends where you go. Statistics aren't consistent throughout the us.

    LOL, travel advisory to America. It depends on which part of the country we are talking about.

    If you are going to go to the the ghetto part of Chicago, of course your chances of getting shot is high.

    In fact, if you ever come to California, I advise you NOT to go to Stockton, most of us call it the other side of California (that is putting it nicely.)

    Yea don't come here. You'll get shot for sure. I live in Oakland. I get shot all the time.

    I heard Australians are fatties like us, though.

    Still preferable to the alternative: not being in America.

    I might want to speak seriously about this subject. @Victor, where do you get these statistics?

    This was your point, why not just skip to it?

    I'm not sure on what authority you speak for the rest of the world, though.

    Read any newspaper, anywhere in the world, except the USA.
