    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.

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

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

    woah, what? as someone from indiana, i was offended by your claim - but then i looked up nesmiths biography, and found that it's TRUE!!!!!

    James Naismith was a presbyterian minister of Scottish descent and Canadian upbringings. He invented basketball, or a very different look-a-like game, to entertain a majority of rugby and football players during the winter season.
    ok, canadians rule. enjoy it, you'll be annexed into the us soon enought

    that canadian list .. um... thing

    there are many many things on this list that make me sad to be canadian - but mainly the fact that most canadians judge how great it is to be canadian by how we can claim heir to popular american pass times and products. Very LITTLE of what we hold dear to Canadian "culture" was funded, believed in or supported by Canada or Canadians until OTHER countries TOLD us it was cool.

    Like:

    - although the writer of superman was brought up in toronto, he lived in cleavland when he conceived superman and the comic was about an all AMERICAN super hero and the american comic book company made him into a legend.

    - even though Tim Horton was a canadian hockey star and started the doughnut shops it is owned and made rich by Wendy's Hamburgers in the U.S. (just ask mr joyce how many complaints and law suits Mrs Horton has made against the company)

    - The Bare Naked Ladies suffered an incredible "drought" and weren't getting play in Canada until they got really popular in the U.S. and then everyone here was claiming them as national heroes.

    - And baseball... yeah.... russians had a game that was similar so did the english... but the 1839 game in Coopertown NY seems to be the first real one... maybe there were some "candians" there however you must remember :

    - confederation was in 1867... so those "Canadians" that pushed back the americans and burnt the white house in 1812... um... they were known as THE ENGLISH back then.

    However the beer thing for the mitts... very true! Corona is so thoughtful that way.
