Sure, but that was an incidental reference in a clearly humourous [note the spelling] context - statistics just aren't funny... although I'm sure statisticians have some hilarious (to them) statistical jokes!

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

fearing canadians

I find it typical of americans to be ignorant of other countries and the people that live there. Maybe it is time you change your education system. I am not trying to knock americans, I just get a little tired of people asking if we live in igloes and if we have paved roads. I have met some verry nice people in your country, as you will in mine. We are not allowed to pack handguns and you are not allowed to bring one into canada. You will find the vast majority of canadians to be frendly and willing to help a person in need . As I am sure it is like that in yours. If you come to canada , let me be the first one to welcome you.

So... No house-warming parties when you buy a new Igloo eh?
Uh.... make that geodesic super-cool di-hydrogen oxide structure along an aggregate travelway!

Hey!

I SAW one- maybe more!!!

Only today, I was downtown in the Sleepy Border Town I live in with the rest of the Colorful Natives. There I was, mindin' my own business, and....BAM! What should draw up to the curb but a vehicle with Canadian Plates

There were people in it, too...

Naturally I didn't approach them, not being totally up to speed yet, but they checked in to the No-Tell-Mo-Tel so they'll still be there tomorrow when I go downtown to peddle my Native Wares...

What should I do/say if they speak to me? If I talk nice about Celine Dion/poutine etc., will they buy something? And if so, with real money?

Thanks!

Francesca

We Michiganders consider Canadians to be among our best next-door-neighbors.

That's how Leonard wrote it...you might take up your concerns with him.

Francesca, dear...you really need to get out there camping...being cooped up in the stix and brix too long is not good for a body.

Don't even get me started over the fact that except for you guys throwing in the towel just 'cause of that "54-40-or-fight" nonsense, I'd be speaking- and thinking- Canadian, too.

Oh I just have to share this little diddy that has been running through my head. Call it creative license but, to the tune of I'm Afraid of Americans, by David Bowie:

I'm afraid of Canadians.
I'm afraid of the beer.
I'm afraid I can't help it,
Eh! look out for the deer!

Canada VS United States

This is an actual radio conversation between a United States Navy aircraft carrier (U.S.S. Abraham Lincoln) and Canadian authorities off the coast off Newfoundland in October 1995. (The radio conversation was released by the Chief of Naval Operations on 10/10/95 as authorized by the Freedom of Information Act.)

CANADIANS:
Please divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

AMERICANS:
Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.

CANADIANS:
Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the South to avoid a collision.

AMERICANS:
This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

CANADIANS:
No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.

AMERICANS:
This is the aircraft carrier USS Lincoln. The second largest ship in the United States Atlantic fleet. We are accompanied by three destroyers, three cruisers, and numerous support vessels. I demand that you change your course 15 degrees north...
I say again...That's one-five degrees north.... or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship!

CANADIANS:
We are a lighthouse. Your call
