^ That reminds me of one of my old teachers who used to work at the border. Omg, the stories he told. Most of them relating to wheather misconceptions


Moral of the story: If it's July, don't bother bringing your skis.................or parka.

I know, it's insane how many people I've talked to who didn't realize that it's actually very hot and humid here in the summer!

And this other guy I used to chat with on occasion from the Milwaukee area didn't believe that we're a great deal more south than he is. Wow, just look at a map.


Btw, great thread, Dave

When I've gone to Florida, people don't believe me when I tell them I have a pool.
It is actually not uncommon for them to inquire if I can ever swim in it, or if it's always frozen.

Pool hockey


I do love hot tubs in the winter though, with light snow coming down.

I love that! We have a hot tub in our back yard, and my house is on a back road, so you can see the stars whenever they're out. When the snow is lightly coming down and you can see the stars from the hot tub - it's perfect!

But then again I live in Vancouver, so we don't often get a lot of snow. Rain, yes. Snow? Not so much.

i have a LOT to say on this. great thread, davec.

but lately i've been thinking a lot about what canada should do.
and most would think it's incredible regressive.

first off... let's go back to our old flag from 1964 and prior...



granted it's almost entirely british, but shit, that's what canada essentially is. or was. errm

i mean think about it this way. up until 1947 citizens of canada were considered british subjects living on canadian soil.

we always stress how we can't forget the past...
well then, let's not.

we are, essentially a british nation. it's because of them (and of course the french) that we are what we are today.

but i understand the need for a seperate identity.
however, don't let me forget, but i have a few thoughts as to why i think canada should once again be lining up with the uk.

being in the commonwealth isn't enough, in my opinion.

but anyway, here's the manitoba flag. this is the province i live in:



as you can see, it's very much like the old canadian flag. in fact, manitoba and ontario both switched to their current flags in protest of the maple leaf immediately after the great flag debate of 1964.

it's kind of funny that our manitoba flag not only has the union jack, but also st. richards cross (otherwise known as the flag of england). several provinces boast these on their flags.

and i don't know about the rest of you, but we had to sing both o canada and god save the queen in school. we have two official anthems.

oh canada is the national anthem, and god save the queen is the royal anthem.

Hey zoomerang I'm from Manitoba too!! We had to sing god save the queen too when I was in elementary school. You have a good point.

good stuff.

i guess what i'm trying to say is that we'd be better off maintaining our british ties because we have far, FAR more in common with them in terms of politics (parliamentary structure, etc.) and would help us from becoming america junior.

in so many ways that's what we're becoming, and i HATE it.
