    A girl in my uni course thought "indigenous australians" were from 'Indigenesia'... Like Indonesia...

    I kid you not. She is studying to be a teacher. :/

    my son thought aboriginals were called originals.

    he thought it made sense as they were the original people of australia.

    I normally recognise that they are a famous sportsperson but that is it.
    Well your doing better than me. I wouldn't even know that.

    I only just discovered that I have been driving our new car at night with just the side lights on not the proper ones. I was complaining because they were not bright enough! Oh the shame!!

    On the other side of the coin, a girl I know thought that the expression was "she was wrapped" instead of "she was rapt"....! WTF?? As she is an Aussie and I am an expat I found this most amusing
