Australians of Metafilter, I want to hear from you! I've long heard that turning your glass upside down in a bar in Australia is the same as saying you think you could take anyone in the place. For some reason, this idea fascinates me. Is it true? Do people actually do this? What happens when they do? Where did it come from?

I've googled a bit, but I haven't found much beyond the general "don't do this." I'd love to hear firsthand experiences or see examples from TV shows or movies. Other bits of Australian bar custom would be cool to hear about, as well.
