I like White Raven, Alanis Morissette, and Jim Carrey. Therefore, no, I don't hate Canadians.

estadounidense is the proper way of addressing a, as their called, "american" or someone from the united states in spanish. unitedstatesian makes alot more sense than calling someone american for being from the us since not every american per say is from the us. im trying to start something but i dont think its happening.

technically Canadians are Americans. Don't call them that though, they'll get pissed. They seem obsessed with not being from the united states for some reaosn, probably because our cultures are so similar.

Americans get pissed when they drink Canadian beer. Canadian beer tends to have a wee bit more alcohol than they are used to.

Even more-so: Canadians, US Residents, Mexicans, and all of the countries below Mexico are Americans.

Bermuda, Canada, Caribbean islands, Greenland and the United States of America are North American.

Residents of Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama are Central Americans, though still "technically" North Americans.

Residents of Argentina, Bolivia, Brazile, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Falkland Islands, French Guiana, Galapagos Islands, Guyana, Paraguay, Peru, Suriname, Uruguay and Venezuela are South American.


Also, we (refering to the US) are still called "American" because "United States" refers to a group of states (ie: a body of people permanently occupying a definite territory and politically organized under a sovereign government almost entirely free from external control and possessing coercive power to maintain order within the community) as being united (ie: to put together to form a single unit). Also, "United States" means a federation of states especially when forming a nation in a usually specified territory.

Given that we call our country the "United States of America", we are known as Americans. Residents of Canada are Canadian. Residents of Mexico are Mexican. We could call ourselves New English, but that probably wouldn't float too well with the folks of England.

Look, it's not very unambiguous, but people that are from the US are termed Americans, particularly by people not from the Americas. If you want to refer to someone from North America, all you have to say is "North American". If you want to refer to all of the Americas, then all you have to say is "Panamerican". Isn't English cool?

Of course this causes even more mocking of accents and colloquialisms and each other's countries in general. No-one knows what jandals are.
Darn... I was going to post about how Aussies and Kiwis go at each other a bit. Any hoo, jaz and I were up in Seattle with the rugrat rambling around when we took a trolley back to our bus stop when a bunch of school kids and their chaparones got on. They were from New Zealand and one of the chaparones sat next to jaz, and they started chatting.

chaparone: You from Australia
jaz: Yeah
chaparone: Well, we won't hold that against ya.



Oh yeah, on his flight back here, jaz stopped at Auckland, and grabbed me a shirt: "When I grow up, my dad says I can do what I like..... except play for Australia."

From a news article about "Talking to Americans":

Quote:
Mr. Mercer says the segment is popular because it is as much about the Canadian search for national identity as it is about American ignorance of Canada.
"Canadians spend a huge portion of their social life trying to define what it means to be Canadian," he said in an interview.
"Americans never spend any time trying to define what it means to be American," he said. "Canadians have an identity crisis. We look like Americans. We sound like Americans. We know everything about Americans. They know nothing about us.
"We find that funny," he added.
So there he goes again with deadpan humor, wandering through the streets of Anytown, U.S.A.
The Americans he finds are all too happy to congratulate Canada on what Mr. Mercer, tongue in cheek, tells them are its latest "achievements."
"Congratulations, Canada, on legalizing insulin!" says a woman in New York City.
"Congratulations, Canada, for getting a McDonald's!" shouts a man in a baseball cap.
"Congratulations, Canada, on 800 miles of paved road!" says a man on the streets of New York. On a crowded Manhattan street corner, Mr. Mercer asks: "do you think America should be bombing Bouchard?"
"Absolutely!" a man emphatically responds. Never mind that Bouchard is not a place but a man, the former separatist leader of Quebec, Lucien Bouchard.
At Harvard University, Mr. Mercer asked students whether Canada should resume the seal slaughter in Saskatchewan. Student after student lined up in protest of a slughter, not one seemingly aware that Saskatchewan is a landlocked province with no seals.
Some Canadians say they suffer from a national inferiority complex. As the late former prime minister, Pierre Elliott Trudeau, once said: "Living next to you is in some ways like sleeping with an elephant. No matter how friendly and even-tempered the beast, one is affected by every twitch and grunt."
I'm desperately trying to find a full copy of the special.

Texas should split itself into four states (it has that ability, it's in the state charter) then Texas would have 6 more senators in congress to cast votes for pro-texas crap.

I perfer Canadian bacon over regular, hockey is my favourite sport, and I sometimes find myself posing a huge attraction to the Canadian ladies. So I guess you could say I don't have a thing against my friends up north.

Well....All In All..... I Still Say, I Have A Great Outlook On Such Issues!!

I have in my tapped in to my C Drive..A meter which can accumulate the higher fields of electronic cyber waves, which in turn subjects said waves to the importance of the question and automatically renders impulse reading to acknowledge said importance.....

As you can see the average or above average Canadian doesn't have any issues with whether or not Americans or anyone else..*Hates Or Likes Us*...(At least in my neck of the woods.. Like it might be important?? LOL!

Please note the consistency of the needle on my..

*Do. I. Give. A. Shit. Meter.*

The needle appears to be quite stationary and hasn't moved at all..Hmmmm??

Well there you have it *Sports Fans*.. The gauge doesn't lie.. Lmao!!!
