saintchristopher:
Can I tell you something? I'm thinking I definitely need to visit Canada. It's come to my attention that a startling number of the awesome things I've been enjoying recently come from Canada. Things like:

-LoadingReadyRun
-The New Pornographers
-Bryan Lee O'Malley's Scott Pilgrim books
-Broken Social Scene
-Degrassi (well okay, my girlfriend loves it; I've never watched)
-and more!

In fact, I might move there someday.

Pure Pwnage, always the awesome. :)

I'm sorry for Nickleback as well. :(

Just for the record, in America we pronounce the 'O' in 'Sorry' like the O in Otter. Whereas Canadians pronounce it like the O in Order.

The man's career only spans three decades. If that implies you thought Aliens, The Abyss, The Terminator, Terminator 2'and True Lies are all garbage then I find it quite difficult to find any common ground. Yes, he also made Titanic and Avatar, and while I didn't care for them, its obvious a great many people did. Even if I didn't like those movies, I still don't consider them outright bad by any stretch - they just were't for me.

I used your phrasing. Don't tell me I'm wrong because I applied your own words to the discussion at hand. It just looks silly.

Tell you that you're wrong? I would certainly not be one to imply your opinion is invalid or incorrect. You asserted that the three decades of the man's career produced nothing more than garbage. I simply cannot agree with such a notion. Where I'm willing to forgive the transgression of making a few movies I didn't like (which I incidentally do not believe to be inherently bad films), you are not because in your view he has never made a laudable film.

If you are truly of the opinion that the movies I listed were garbage, then there is no point in discussing the matter. My apologist campaign will make no headway if you do not believe the man has produced a notable film in his career and in making such a claim, it strikes me that your opinion is so incompatible with my own that it would be all but impossible to convince me of your position. We are therefore at an impasse.

A final note however, do not construct a straw man. I never asserted your opinion was wrong. I never implied it was wrong. I'm fine with disagreement, but descent into fallacy is more than a little silly, especially in an argument as silly as this one.

ahh, being Canadian is great. We're a friendly nation with Tim Hortons, maple syrup, and more square feet of awesomeness per person than any other nation in the world. I'm sorry for Justin Beiber and Celine Dion, and you're welcome for RUSH and AC/DC. Canada - America's Hat!

I worked as a Customer Service rep for American Eagle, it is a clothing company. I absolutely LOVED Canadians, whenever they called in, I begged my coworkers to let me take the call, EVERY SINGLE Canadian who called in was nicer and more polite than the last, I fell in love with your country when i had that job, I think you're all so nice because of your proximity to Tim Horton's, but I may be mistaken.

So to all Canadians, I love you.

It's not hard to be in close proximity to a Tim Hortons......since there is practically one on every block!!!!!

Baby Tea:

Great video, guys! It's a shame you are in the snobby west coast, and not the awesome, totally not stuck-up province of Ontario...except for Toronto. Toronto is a dirty hole. Nobody likes them, not even other Ontarians.

Being from Ottawa, I can completely agree with you on this statement!\
OT: Great video. I just had to come back and rewatch it for amid-Canadian Winter pick-me-up. Sorry this post is so late......

I love to apologise. Here's an example:

"I'm so sorry... sorry that you're an idiot! Ahahaha."
