    Just think - if Timbits were weapons, we'd have better access to them than Americans have to their darn guns. :D

    Ah, many a time have I wished I could throw a Timbit at some innocent passer-by... *reminisces*

    STL - You don't count as an American. I already told you you're one of us now. :p

    You live here, so of course you know what Timbits are. Bet you didn't know before you came though.

    You see? Canada beckons you. It saying "Tamber... Tamber... come home, Tamber.... Canada... you belong in Canada...."

    You cannot escape. It's hopeless to resist. :p

    Is this one of those Borg "Resistance is futile" things?

    It could be. Canada as the next superpower, soon all the world will add "eh?" to every sentence.

    They'll add "eh", but they'll never pronounce it right.

    I just don't get it. Canadians say ey. Americans say ay. Why can they not get it correct? I don't get it.

    All about "eh", posted by yours truly

    How can you NOT pronounce "eh" right? I guess because I hear it all the time from y'all, I can't imagine hearin it pronounced another way...

    BTW, in three years, I have never said "eh" and I don't intend to start!

    Yeah, saying "eh" right is as important as "rolling your r's right" when speaking french :D

    Americans usually overemphasize it. Canadians say "ey". Americans say "ay". Sometimes, they even say "aye". Say all three out loud, and see for yourself.

    Hm. But I say "aye" and sometimes I say "y'all" too. Does that make me any less Canadian? O_O

    *goes off to ponder this*

    For my part I once meet a group of French on a camping near Ottawa.

    When I met them, they were ranting about our "weird canadian sink". Finally, two of them were requiered to operate one sink.

    The next thing, they ask directions for the giants trees of BC. They want to visit before supper!

    You should have seen their faces when they learned they were about as far from France than they were from the trees.

    Almost presented them my pit beaver.
    We were due to hunt lièvreil that night so I passed.

    Or anywere in the world for that matter.

    The traveling possibilities would be very interresting.

    At least, they're working on making it a reality with their teleportation experiments.

    I don't think I'll volunteer to be the first human to be teleported... something about having my cells fried, stored in a computer and then recreated somewhere else....

    What's the worst that could happen beside having your head switched with your beaver.

    ...

    Okay, I see your point.
