Why didn't you just set your pet bear on him?.

Wrong! I'm there quite regularly and it's all about NYC and SoCal.

You do realize we issue more vacation visas from Europeans than Canada by far right? The US is the 2nd most visited country in the world. First if you include extended stay visas. Only France is ahead of The US. But hey, your random statement with no factual grounding, while ignorant and pompous, was definitely a good addition to the thread. You are a valuable asset to this community.

So you missed the constant and regular "minimum speed" signs every 10 ft in ND? You thought your story would be amusing but it sounds like the officer knew he was dealing with a real winner.

I can't put this into words but we Canadians are more civilised for some reason, maybe because there are few of us compared


You know, when you start things out based on a presumption of superiority based off of the geographical location as to where you were born....and the "nation" you have a "citizenship" in....

You're going to get discounted immediately.

Honestly, with your opinion of the states...I'm perfectly glad you're afraid. Stay that way.

I wasn't driving below the minimum... I was actually only about 10 mph below the speed limit, not breaking any road laws at all.

Even Mr. Super Trooper didn't catch on to my little mathematical wisecrack... by converting miles per hour to kilometers per hour it would've actually increased my speed, not lower it.

3 cheers for the US public education system.

Weeeee !

Make sure you indulge in some poutine while you're at it. Who needs ketchup for fries? That's for us thin blooded southern folk. Up north they slather 'em in gravy and cheese.

So if you thought the signs were in kph, then you'd be going slower. (if the sign said 60 and you thought it was kph, it'd be like 36 mph.)

But I don't know the maths. I'm frum Merka.

I always do. I have my spots I frequent whenever I am in Canuckland.

Ah, yes. The infamous 'Disco Fries' ubiquitous at every New Jersey diner.

Your story is untrue then. You were either going under the minimum speed or you made the whole story up. Sorry, maybe be familiar with the laws here before you try and BS a story about ND. And we all got the "wise crack". The fact you thought you had to explain it seems to indicate you are a predisposed hater. Enjoy your sunny beaches.

2 questions. 1- Have you ever been to the States? 2- How old are you? These don't demean you. I'm just saying that this Canadian has been to the States numerous times. East, west coast and central. Migh and Northern NY. I've met the best people. That's over 35 years.

No, I can't remember my exact words to the cop... it was 25+ years ago.

But it was something along the lines of "sorry officer, I guess it's because I'm converting the mph to kph."

Something along those lines.

Needless to say, it flew right over his head.



Anyways...

The point of my story was relating an experience I had with a state trooper and his childish neverending pokes at my being Canadian.

25 years ago means it was in the 1940's. Right after WWI. Weren't we still fighting you then?

Yes.

But if you think that means you guys get to keep that cheez-in-a-can stuff all to yourselves... you got another thing coming bub.

Did we suddenly start importing Red Back Spiders, Taipans and Drop Koalas?

Come to Canada. We have no Brown Recluse. Snakes? The Massasuaga Rattler is said to be poisonous but it's on the islands of eastern Ontario. The snow and cold might do you in if you don't live on the west coast though.
It's even I think I could barely survive your "winters". Hate the heat.

perhaps you could clarify for me. What exactly did you mean?

Using the term "like flies" while discussing immigration is pretty inflammatory.
Don't you think?

Don't you agree?

So - if I got your sarcasm and/or meaning wrong......
for the sake of other members and guest readers.......
please explain yourself.





I don't think there is a person here other than you that cares what I meant by "like flies". You have it wrong. That's all I'll say. Now go to the Safe Space forum and suck your thumb.
