It's global warming. I blame Bush.

It surprises me too, and I live here.

Who the hell thought settling here was a good idea?

Please don't talk about Canadian Winter. It will come soon enough. Allow us a little bit of fall. Still hope to take the top off my Jeep at least one more time without having to wear a parka.

Life in Canada? I guess it depends on how broad your definition of "life" is I guess...

Above freezing during the daytime on Mars is impressive, but

Air temperatures drop dramatically after the sun goes down, plunging as low as minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 70 Celsius) just before dawn, scientists said.

I'm still not moving there yet.

See? Other planets get warm too. The global warming oops, I mean "climate change" lie is falling apart wherever we look.
 
2012-10-02 02:39:18 PM  
Alert! Alert! The Earthlings have discovered our invasion!

/our quiet, polite invasion

There's a few more barriers than just "being able to walk outside in a warm jacket", such as "without an individual air supply"

It was much colder until we sent a big SUV up there to start driving around.

Can you imagine being one of the first settlers? Some boats go to the Caribbean, others go to South America, a bunch end up in the continental US, but nooooo your boat lands in what is now Halifax harbor. I would bet a lot of colonial wives were pretty pissed off at their husbands for having a hangover on the day they went and booked their passage.

This is my second waking thought in the morning between December and March.

The first one is generally surprise at waking up at all.

Well, it ain't the kind of place to raise your kids, in fact it's cold as Hell.

I'm guessing it's because of Tim Hortons.

I live in Vancouver. One of the best cities (if not THE best) in the world and is quite warm in comparisons to the rest of the country and the north east parts of America.

Like always, booze.

A former river pilot, John (Jack) Deighton, set up a small (24' x 12') saloon on the beach about a mile west of the sawmill in 1867 where mill property and its "dry" policies ended. His place was popular and a well-worn trail between the mill and saloon was soon established - this is today's Alexander Street. Deighton's nickname, Gassy Jack, came about because he was known as quite the talker, or "gassy". A number of men began living near the saloon and the "settlement" quickly became known as Gassy's Town, which was quickly shortened to "Gastown". In 1870, the colonial government of British Columbia took notice of the growing settlement and sent a surveyor to lay out an official townsite named Granville, in honour of the British Colonial Secretary, Lord Granville, though it was still popularly known as Gastown (which is the name still current for that part of the city).

OMG, it's a Martian! Oh, wait. Nevermind, it's just a Canadian.

That would make Canadians truly badass. Wait, where would the Lannisters live, Florida?.

/And the Starks would live in Jersey XD

Martian life is definitely being impolite in not welcoming us.

Temperature was never a barrier to sending humans to Mars. Atmospheric pressure (there isn't much) and very little water is the problem.
 
2012-10-02 02:53:19 PM  
Both are warmer and contain more life then Anne Coulters cooch.

Not as long as you'd think, if you were willing to pull a Major Kong and ride some a-bombs.

it evolved from poutine, this is why all canadian lifeforms require it. They must partake of the mother cells periodically or slowly die from within.

rain is something one deals with. you love it ? do you somehow live a life that does not involve leaving your house early for work, walking a dog, driving a car, playing outdoor sports, going to stores and carrying items outside, looking at women in bathing suits in the sun, wearing shorts or short sleeved shirts, etc ?
 
2012-10-02 03:07:42 PM  
Well they were bound to find intelligent life somewhere.

/that was a freebie Canucks, don't let it go to your heads

I don't suppose many of you darned kids are old enough to remember Donnie and Marie doing Is There Life On Canada?

But it was pretty funny. For the seventies. And, you know, Donnie and Marie.

Doug: How's it goin', eh?
Bob: Okay, so today's topic is life on Canada. According to, like, Martian scientists, eh, It's colder there than it is here!
Doug: Betcha that means their beer's colder, eh.
Bob: Yah, but we don't know if there's any life there, you hoser.
Doug: Take off, eh...

/Yeah, that was as funny as a case of the clap...

Those scientists are American, eh? I'm surprised they managed to find Canada on the map.
 
2012-10-02 03:14:29 PM  
In other news, the average Martian is smarter than all Fox News watchers combined.
