There seem to be to be at least two things that captivate Australians these days.

First, Australians are focused on whether Indonesia will execute two Australians for dealing in 10 kilos or so of heroin. Death by firing squad is the method of execution. If the firing squad doesn’t do the job, the captain of the squad dispatches the inmate with a pistol shot to the head. See here.
