A tennis tournament website called Han Solo Pen, is that cool or what!?
http://www.hansolopen.com/2011/

That must mean Caro has the chance to become the Han Solo champion this year!

I had made this meme for another site but I thought I'd gift it to you Canadian guys also. This is a Canadian you can be proud of!

Well whilst we are on the subject of Canadians - I used to really like Leonard "slash your wrists" Cohen. I loved thsoe depressing songs with the weird lyrics like:

Quote:
Sometimes I need you naked.
Sometimes I need you wild.
I need to to carry my children home.
And I need you to kill a child.
In a different field (F1) - I regard Canada's Gilles Villeneuve as one of the best drivers I've seen. A tragedy when he was killed. He never won a world championship but was miles better IMO than his son Jacques Villeneuve who did.

Us Canadians are extremely insecure so all of this love for Canada is nice.

I am also a Nova Scotian. I hail from the small town of Trenton which you probably are unfamiliar with. New Glasgow is one town over from me.

On a serious note, really? From my arm chair, I always look at Canada and Canadians as holding your own.

I'm sure that it varies from individual to individual but there is a general national feeling that we are perpetually in the shadow of the country immediately to the south of us. In Europe most countries have a very distinct culture and language but the differences between Americans and Canadians are much more blurry. I guess you could say that English speaking Canada is like a low budget version of America.

WOW!That's a SERIOUS insult!There are some things about Canada that make me shake my head,but I've never thought of Canadians as being nearly THAT bad....and I'd say that most of the rest of the world agreed with me

Well, I didn't say that was true or that I think that but there is certainly a perception that Canada is like a little brother to America. The countries are very similar in their culture (for example we share a common language and are both descended from the United Kingdom) but America tends to do things on a much larger scale.

Bruce, I think you may have inadvertently offended some of the Americans that are regular posters here.

Don't paint with broad strokes. It may have been better if you had said: Its amazing how ignorant some Americans are of Canada.
