I CAN TAKE ANY ONE OF YOU MOTHERFUCKERS!!! No, wait, I'm just building a cup pyramid.

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? [more inside]

Looking for travel deals way ahead of time

I'm trying to keep track of cheap tickets for a dream international flight in end July 2011. However, almost all the sites I looked at say I'm searching way too early and have no information for me. When is the best time to look, and are there any websites that will email me with details once a good price or deal shows up? (I vaguely remember hearing of such a thing but can't remember the URL) [more inside]

Mashed yams and Tim Tams?

"American Thanksgiving" in Melbourne, Australia -- for a few Americans and a bunch of new Aussie friends who have never celebrated, but want to help with the cooking. How should I use the next few days to prepare? A few of the difficulties: I've never hosted Thanksgiving before, in ANY country. I'm not sure how to best coordinate the pot-luck aspect -- trying to shape a decent team-effort menu would be wise. I'm not even sure where the best place is to buy a turkey. Bonus points for menu suggestions that add Aussie flair to the American holiday (let's put kangaroo in SOMETHING), or that go over-the-top American (who says we can't have turkey AND bacon cheeseburgers?).

Prominent Australian Moustaches?

I'm trying to identify prominent Australians, preferably from the 1980s who had a moustache. Think Magnum PI, but Australian. For what its worth, I've already identified just about every bloke that played cricket for Australia in that period. Bonus points if you can tell me some songs about moustaches too.
