I was that way for a long time. Never talked politics and stayed busy all the time. Things change though as you get older. I also have gotten interested in Australian rural culture after watching a couple of series relating to it. So anything on the news and stories about Australia always get my attention. The U.S. and Australia seam to have closer cultural ties than Great Britain and the U.S. in my opinion.Youd probably know more than me then, I dont watch TV, the news , or read newspapers.
Get along quite nicely without them.
