I know people like to make out that Australia is full of dangerous creatures and terrible deaths, but 99% of Australians have never seen anything more deadly than a pit-bull terrier.

In South Australia it's 'Bathers' for swimsuit (we used to use 'Togs' for swimsuit in Lancashire UK)..... No idea who Hemsworth's are ..... Also people in SA use 'Afto' for afternoon not 'Arvo'.

Chris is probably most known for his role as Thor in the Marvel universe and Liam had some international roles as well (in The Hunger Games e.g.). Funny thing: Chris and Liam have another brother who actually plays a role in the 2nd last answer of this quiz yet he isn't even mentioned. I guess his roles weren't big enough? Though he also appears in international productions like the HBO series Westworld.

To put it bluntly and sadly, the oldest brother got the genetic short end of the stick. Do a web search for the three men together and you'll see what I mean. Much of Chris and Liam's recognition and movie roles are due to status as heart-throbs. The older brother is half a foot shorter and much more average looking. The worst part is that he initially got his younger brothers into acting and now they're both internationally known.

Geez Quizmaster, are you trying to start a fight? Only Queenslanders say Togs!! In Victoria we are classy and say Bathers. In Sydney they say swimmers. There are others. Here is an entire article and map about it: http://www.australiangeographic.com.au/topics/history-culture/2016/01/togs-or-swimmers,-australian-lingo
