According to Robert Anton Wilson, in the south US when someone has a satori or is born again and then do nothing except walk around in intoxicated spiritual delirium, they are called a "bliss ninny".

Hearn - A hearn is like an Australian jock. - Nope, never heard this word down here

Westie - This used to mean something like Hesher, but now means anyone living in the western suburbs of Sydney. - The term is understood but in NZ the hesher is universally called a bogan.

Ace TV! - An extremely positive affirmation, as in "Awesome!", or "Yay I cannot wait to do this!" etc. sounds like a semi-ironic local thing.

Pike - A verb, meaning to not do something because one simply cannot be bothered. - Yes, this word is commonly used in NZ also

Everything gets shortened. "Opening the pressies after some schooeys around the the barbie with the rellies on chrissy arvo", etc. - yes to all that except the schooeys


Pike is pretty common in Adelaide.

One that I don’t think is used anywhere else but South Australia is “minda”, which would be used as a derogatory term for someone saying they have special needs or are retarded. It comes from Minda, which is a service for people with disabilities.
