    Canadian's make fun of America because their economy is beyond repair and American's make fun of Canada because our biggest mall once had more submarines then our entire navy (true fact).

    I think it's kind of one of those love/hate things.

    Generally, we're pretty good and friendly neighbours but, for the most part, both tend to take some kind of satisfaction in their differences and like to rub one anothers' noses in it.

    Canadians seem to take pride in their less power hungry persona on the world stage while the Americans seem to take pride in their power and riches.

    In a more important way though, I think it's just a larger scale example of typical "accident of birth" geographical pride posturing.

    I don't know about where all of you live but here it's like, one community in the city thinks it's better than another for various reasons and then one city thinks it's better than another city for other reasons then one province better than another etc, etc. I'm sure that, if we were ever to have intergalactic relations with beings from other planets, the same thing will play out there as well. Truth of the matter is (my truth anyways), there's pros and cons to every age/race/gender/geographical residence/job/social standing/ad infinitum/nauseum but ppl in general just often like to elevate themselves (make themselves feel better) by putting others down somehow. Sort of part of that survival of the fittest hardwired psyche we're all cursed/blessed with :lol:
    So far at least, 2011, 2012 & 2015 were enough for me

    Oh yea, quoting myself. It's happening.

    I love being in Alaska, but I'm not a fan of being in America. If Alaska ever declares independence, I'll never leave the state. But as long as AK is part of the USA, I'm not too stoked about living here. And Canada isn't the the only country I want to run away to, there are quite a few countries in Europe that catch my eye. Specifically the ones with blond, long-haired men :mrgreen:

    Whoa Rachel, who's that super sexy looking band that you posted amongst the other flapheads?


    Though I was born and (mostly) raised in Canada, my mom and her family were all born in the states and grew up there. Thus, I have spent quite a bit of time down in various places in the states. Naturally, there are pros and cons to each country (and it's hard to generalize these two massive countries into a sort of prime example), but I think the main difference (in my experience) is the attitude.
    The generalized american attitude is based strongly in patriotism and a strong belief that the 'american way' is right.
    Canada has a sort of 'snobbish' attitude where we look down our noses at america and scoff at their mistakes (Though we have many, many shining examples of things wrong with us..)

    Either way, I love being a canadian and living here, although our more 'relaxed' attitude comes of as indifference sometimes.

    Exactly :) Like the Danes always insult the Swedes (because they are better looking and more famous in the world :lol: ), but when they are abroad they defend them if anyone tries to insult them :lol:

    I've never really experienced a problem with Canadians, and I used to visit a lot. But then again, I'm not American. I'm Texan. :headbanger:
    Never take anything I say seriously.

    :heavydrink: Canada is our idiot kid brother. We don't hate them, we just find it hard to take them seriously. And they procuce tons of shitty death metal and Blackguard.

    But it's always fun to smack them in the back of the head whenever you feel the need to and not have to worry about any reprecussions. Image

    I pretty much stand beside all of you in this, but I still think it's hilarious that last night everyone was all, "USA! USA!" and now that the 4th of July is over we've gone back to, "Yeah! Fuck America!"

    Good point :lol: How can we compare the two countries when the people in the US don't even get along? The north hates the south. The coasts hate middle america, the northeast hates everything and everyone hates Texas :cool:

    Alaska isn't even a real part of the USA anyways. Just like Texas.

    But to Canada's credit, I think when you murder children they find you guilty. All thee Floridiots can't understand basic facts and evidence.

    Man, the Canadian justice system is broken too, just in a different way. That whole baloney with Casey Anthony is something else though...

    We feed heavily off the sterotypes that people have about us... we love it.
    We are completely inendated with American culture--we know more about your politics,entertainment,and news than our own.
    We differ in lots or areas--we are more liberal as far as stuff like personal freedoms(dope,same sex marriage,titties on TV! :beerwink: )

    Religion here plays relatively zero influence on anything(more in Quebec which is very Roman Catholic)--especially gov't!! Thank GOd!! (Pun intended)

    Most Americans(except for the people on the boat and forums of course) really know Sweet FA about us. We like it that way,,. makes it fun.
    Jake make some very good points about the "snobbish" attitude--I agree totally.

    We have our own faults, but you guys don't know about them!

    There are lots of variables and reasons--we don't hate each other. We are each others biggest trading partners and tourist visits.
    We've never lost a war,never been in invaded and our gov't formed in 1867 --between 4 territories and made Canada--over some mead or wine or something.
    People joke about our military--BUT ask anyone who has served with Canadian military personnel, they will tell you how well trained and tough we are. And we certainlly don't have the eqiupment and manpower as other nations... I'm glad we are finally leaving Afghanistan.

    But I gotta say, Americans I have met in the last 5 yrs(cruise,work,travels etc) have been great and very inquisitive and dare I say, apologetic of "Americans"
    You had Dubya,Slick Willie, we had um...... Jean Chretien who chocked a protester(we all loved THAT!) and Pierre Trudeau(whose wife was fucking Mick Jagger!!) and now we have Stephen Harper.....in a passionate,crowd arousing speech on Canada Day said...... wait for it.... " Happy Canada Day to all Canadians"--Our leader!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I feel the need to do that everywhere I go :roll: I'm embarrassed to say I'm American when I travel because our biggest export seems to be idiocy. Of course, damn near all people in the country are not like the Americans you see on TV or in the news, but those ones are the most visible.
