The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. my friend from Canada send me this.



    1. Smarties.

    2. Crispy Crunch, Coffee Crisp.

    3. The size of our footballs fields and one less down.

    4. Baseball is Canadian.

    5. Lacrosse is Canadian.

    8. Apple pie is Canadian.

    9. Mr. Dress-up kicks Mr. Rogers ass.

    10. Tim Hortons kicks Dunkin' Donuts ass.

    11. In the war of 1812, started by America, Canadians pushed the Americans back...past their 'White House'. Then we burned it...and most of Washington, under the command of William Lyon MaKenzie King who was insane and hammered all the time. We got bored because they ran away, so we came home and partied...Go figure..

    12. Canada has the largest French population that never surrendered to Germany.

    13. We have the largest English population that never ever surrendered or withdrew during any war to anyone. anywhere. EVER.

    14. Our civil war was fought in a bar and it lasted a little over an hour.

    15. The only person who was arrested in our civil war was an American mercenary, who slept in and missed the whole thing... but showed up just in time to get caught.

    16. We knew plaid was cool far before Seattle caught on.

    17. The Hudsons Bay Company once owned over 10% of the earth's surface and is still around as the worlds oldest company.

    18. The average dog sled team can kill and devour a full grown human in under 3 minutes.

    19. We still know what to do with all the parts of a buffalo.

    20. We don't marry our kin-folk.

    21. We invented ski-doos, jet-skis, velcro, zippers, insulin, penicillin, zambonis, the telephone and short wave radios that save countless lives each year.

    22. We ALL have frozen our tongues to something metal and lived to tell about it.

    23. A Canadian invented Superman.

    24. We have coloured money.

    25. Our beer advertisments kick ass.


    24. The handles on our beer cases are big enough to fit your hands with mitts on. OOOoohhhhh Canada!!

    25. And we don't bomb our allies.

    oh yeah... and our elections only take one day.

    Pass this on , friends as many as u can, if you are proud to be Canadian!!! even if u have friends from USA then email them!!

  2. Peanut better M + M's mmmmmmmm :) You can buy them in Canada
  3. I have been living in Canada for 2 and half years but never seen such a long list of goodies for Canadians to be proud of. I want to add one more to it though. Free health care :lol:
  4. Here's something else: Those Yanks are secretly envious of you.
  5. If Canada is so wonderful.Why is every single Candian soldier(English or French speaking) I have ever encountered capable of boring people into a coma within minutes? :lol:
  6. Nice list.

    Soooo, this list of 25 items makes the world go 'round; and safer to boot?


    Unix? Windows? Macintosh? Relational Databases? Galium Arsenide chips? Microprocessors? Graphic User Interfaces?

    Bio-informatics? M-16, F-18s, C-130s? Polio and Yellow fever vaccine?

    Why does 85% of the Canadian population live within 100 miles of the US border? Pre-Invasion planning?

    BTW, I don't drink. I don't play baseball, basketball, lacrosse or Canadian Football. Hate Smarties and drink de-caf. I prefer sex, skydiving, guns and rock & roll; two of which are American and the others perfected by Americans.

    We don't make the world, we make it better.
  7. Canada invented the telephone, news to me.
  8. Poor Canada. Has such an iferiority complex.


    Here we go again. Rocketteer's Godwin

    Canada's French population just mostly refused to join up, (so they didn't have to surrender) and were the real reason behind the imposition of conscription in WW1 and WW2.

    The writer better do a little more research on that one.
    The fogotten Canadians at the fall of Singapore and Hong Kong don't count I suppose.
  9. You must live in Ontario or Quebec.

    Remember, you get what you pay for

    It's not "Free" everywhere in Canada, and not great.
  10. Must be because of Cadpat
  11. Ah, each country has something to be proud of.....except Lichtenstein. Gotta draw the line somewhere, right? So, let us have our moment. Yeesh!

    And it isn't Canadians that have an inferiority complex. It's Ontarians. The only good thing they've produced in a while is Shania Twain, but, mind you, that does make up for a lot. And one day, we will all punish Quebec for inflicting Celine Dion on us.
  12. When is the moment coming?

    I fully understand that distinction. But many non-Canadians (and Ontarians) will not :wink:
  13. Whoa, Tracy-Paul, you invented sex? Because you sure ain't perfected it according to my American wife :).

    Something to do with all you guys being circumcised, maybe...which, BTW, is of course the worst thing to be if you ever become a POW these days... :wink:
  14. I meant face-to-face WITHOUT the Wellington Boots and Saddle... :lol:

    OK, how does your wife know I didn't perfect it??? :wink: Just for that, the web cam STAYS off...
  15. I have never had the pleasure of an American (or a Canadian for that matter) but I have heard that Americans are rather sedate in the sack, unlike their European brothers....... anyone care to comment?!
