What's that Dead Kennedys song about excess population?

That is the most plausible explanation I have heard.

Europe, an entire continent of dickless wonders.

Man, how many threads can I get that phrase into???????????????? :lol:

Jeez you wouldn't say that to the Mundaka boys.

They'd probably come around to your house and blow it up.

Meanwhile I think Bali's current state is probably Gina Rinehart's fault, she's insanely rich and a bit scary-looking, so fcuk it -- she'll do.

....and Clive Palmer.

I went to Kings Cross and there were drunks, druggoes and hookers everywhere. Australia is one rooted place. I don't know how anyone lives on that island.

Interesting. I didn't know that. In Bahasa Malaysia bisa does mean animal poison, and "racun" is poison.
Indo dreaming wrote: offcourse bisa more commonly used to ask question.
But it definitely isn't used to ask a question in Bahasa M.
Indo dreaming wrote: funny how the bahasa malay words are often very similar in subject matter but totally different in meaning.
Well more than 70 years of the languages growing apart led to this. Of course, things would have been different if the Indonesians got their way with the Confrontation in the early 60s when they wanted Malaysia to be part of Indonesia.

@Petulance

You mentioned you spent time in Medan, was there local dillect similar to Bahasa Malay?
(ive only been there overnight on way to Nias/telo's)

I ask because Bahasa Minang in Padang area i think is similar, well its similar to Bahasa Indonesia, not all words offcourse but some words are the same and some words very similar, while most local dilects in indonesia are totally different to bahasa Indonesia or Bahasa Malay.

^^^^
I don't remember the local dialects in Medan, though I did know that there was a Batak tribe living there. I only remember having conversations in English / Bahasa when I was there.

One interesting thing I noticed in Medan was the presence of Indonesians of Chinese origin. They spoke the Chinese dialect of Hokkien.

It is possible that both Bahasa Malaysia and Indonesia derived from the Minang (or Mnangkabau) people as they have a presence on the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia. Though in Malaysia, they all get lumped under one ethnic group called "Malay" while in Indonesia the groups maintain their own identity (Achenese, Bugis, Javanese, etc).
