List 5 things which are basic common knowledge in your culture, which people outside are unfamiliar with. This is not about obscurity, but something everyday to you, that others go "bzuh?" at.

1. Being called "an old bastard" is a complement. Being called "a bit of a bastard" is not.
2. Vegemite
3. Native trees don't shed their leaves, but the do shed their bark.
4. Most people in this country have little or no contact with wild animals (80% of the population is urban)
5. "Tin" (aka corrugated iron) is a common roofing material, especially outside major cities.
