I always rent a car when I'm in the UK or Eire. Driving on the wrong side is a bit easier when the steering wheel is on the wrong side as well. The first time was with my own car. I almost died.

I hear you on that, I once was a passenger in a car in the UK with an American friend in the countryside who attempted a U-turn and suddenly thought he was back in the US and almost had a head-on collision with a car coming the other way....fun times.

Why do people not know that the left side is the 'right' side???

Closest I ever came to death was on an Irish motorway near Bray. The off ramp was a motherfucking hairpin turn. I wasn't used to driving an automatic either. So I basically came to a full stop with my ass still on the motorway. The Irish are insane.

That's a bloody long way to go to lose a battle
How often do you actually see the spiders that can kill you (either by venom or heart attack). Do you have to check your shoes every morning before putting them on? What about the snakes?

And is running over a kangaroo with your car an actual problem or is it rare?

Seeing spiders that can kill you is pretty rare where I live, but seeing f#ck-off sized huntsman spiders in your bedroom when you wake up in the morning and can give a nasty bite is enough to make you crap your strides.

I live in suburbia so running over a roo isn't really going to happen....BUT....try playing golf with 15-20 full-sized roos casually feeding on the grass on the fairway, and don't move when you have to take a shot, it's surreal.
