    LOL, such stereotyping...that is almost funny.

    Is that a quote from someone or did you come up with that on your own?

    ...and how does it relate to how sucky Canada is?

    I thought it was pretty funny. Most Canadians I know wouldn't get really riled up about something like that.

    Most often we get a good laugh about how Americans talking about Canada. We do get back at them with stuff like this though

    Woah woah, I'm not saying back down from the French. That's just crazy talk.

    I'm saying, we shouldn't be saying "the nerve of those people!" and get all indignant. Know it's coming, ignore it, and move on.

    See its never going to end . Some people will always find someone to hate. first its the other country, then some other province, then it go to the next city, etc untill they start to hate their own brother.

    The canadian army is a joke And is very small. That submarine fire cost the life of a marines. So its not even funny anymore. We used to laugh at our 50 years old helicopter but now its just sad. But no body in canada is willing to give more money to the army or at least the big majority of people think its useless.

    Um, how does a submarine catch fire? Sink it, hit a rock, but catch fire?

    Actually its pretty common. Of course the fire was inside and usually in an american submarine it would be out in a matter of seconds. But because its a canadian submarine the extinguisher near to the fire was not even fill up. And the fire start in to separate location at the same time. So marines work on a fire thinking they put it out but it was growing on the other location. It start with an electrical problem. I guess the U.K was selling those for a reason after all.

    It was not a retaliation to your post just commenting on the fact when i said it was not funny anymore i was not referring to your post. It is funny that submarine that you just bought caugh fire on delivery. Of course its sad that someone died in the process.

    Then I suppose, they opened a window to let the smoke out?

    Not exactly the most appropriate joke to be making considering that a person died because of this incident.
