    It's obvious that the current generation has been educated by
    television when Zed becomes Zee, the emergency number is thought to be
    911, american "say something, mean nothing" expressions become common
    in conversations both in real life and the media even though few have
    any idea of the origin of said expressions.

    Aboriginal youth adopting Negro culture even though they've got a
    unique identity of their own.

    Going into a food court with dozens of exotic food shops only to note
    that the biggest queues by far are at Macca's.

    We could have had our own national identity, but it's an opportunity
    rapidly disappearing, swamped in a sea of fast food, cheap spectacular
    films and crap TV reality shows and sitcoms.

    I blame bloody Packer and the media barons.

    Too true and the number of people that call you buddy too, sheesh.
    That's so sad. As an average suburbanite brat with no great family or
    ethnic history to speak of save my adoptive parent's Scottish background
    there are times when I envy those with cultural roots to pursue.
    To be fair those same media barons only feed us what we'll eat. It's our
    own national apathy that's the main cause plus a healthy (or unhealthy) dose
    of the "no fault" generation.
    That's bloody marvellous. Pity it'll be lost on most.

    What is really giving me the shits is the rapid change in pronunciation of
    words starting with 'de.....'.

    Defence became DEEfence, delighted became DEElighted, etc
