I fully admit that I occasionally do it, but it's usually only when I'm thinking.
And I don't, to my knowledge, have a nasal twang. That's a Queenslander specialty.

Eh?
I think it's just to do with where you're from. School is compulsory until you're 16 - and from then until you're 18 you either have to be at TAFE (technical college), in an apprenticeship or at highschool. S'nothing to do with your education.

but it was a theory that someone came up with, by poor education I dont think they were refering to the actual qualifications but that schooling now is often about passing the exam as opposed to a wider preperation to adult life.

And the South Australians. And the Western Australians. Seems to be only Victorians and Tasmainians and ACT'ans who don't generally have the twang.

The ACT'ans are too busy watching porn and visiting sex shops to question anything.
