Agent Smiths Laugh: Well they were bound to find intelligent life somewhere.

It's a great day for Canada, and by extension--the world.

/but instead, we are much better at fighting each other. Tribal warfare is what we have to break free from before we become anything as a species.

Almost everyone in Canada (everyone worth talking about) lives in a narrow band just north of the US border. The population density is the really cold parts is low. Really, really, REALLY low in much of it.

And you Americans are aware that Alaska is cold, right?

Nobody worth talking about lives in Alaska, you're aware of that, right?

Isuldirs: 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.


/Now the rain....
//Loves the rain


Oh just shut the hell up. I live near Vancouver and its a terribly small city that wants to be a big city without densification. So parking is 16 bucks a day for the 'prestige' of working there. I'd rather work in Whalley.

Egoy3k: thewulf: It surprises me too, and I live here.

Who the hell thought settling here was a good idea?

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.


At least the colonial wives missed this.

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

Fark Rye For Many Whores: Air temperatures drop dramatically after the sun goes down, plunging as low as minus 94 degrees Fahrenheit just before dawn, scientists said.

So really not puzzling for a superdesert.


Reminds me of Alberta in the winter... Or the summer sometimes. :)

jabelar: We are able to go for a hike every weekend. And so on.


I hear ya. I went from Vancouver to Calgary to Detroit(ish), and now I'm eyeing Oregon. Although... Rain.

Speaking of Canada
Hey, how's the bacon situation up there?
Appaerently we have a supply issue, if you believe the costume media. Just the same, its making the prices go up down here.
So, maybe if you guys are fat with bacon you can share some down here.
Maybe a trade, Celine has got to be worth 75lbs of bacon, you can have her back.
Oh, and what's with your cheese situation? Read that some fireman or cop or something got busted for smuggling US cheese into Canada. Guess there's a big black market for US cheese.

MCStymie: Bob: I'm Bob Zbg5ele'¥, and this is my brother Doug.
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...

Well you have to consider that Nova Scotia is actually south of Great Britain. I'm not precisely sure how the different air and ocean currents affect the average temperatures, but at least it's still a step up (down) from Merrye old england.

You wont want to hear this, but the US was pretty much on the way there before the Middle east decided to crap in its own mouth. There are half a dozen plans for putting permanent habitats on Mars for about 12% of Nasa's total budget per year over twenty years. Well some of them may run more than that as estimates and its in 1990's dollars, but still, its all 1990's technology too.

Only because Cohaagen won't turn the reactor on

sure u could sing "walking on the moon" when you're walking around on mars. in fact someone will probably do that very soon (within 24 years)

Holocaust Agnostic: See? Other planets get warm too. The global warming oops, I mean "climate change" lie is falling apart wherever we look.

Nuh uh, clearly the Martians are driving around in big SUVs to cause this. Climate change is real, Al Gore invented it, just like the internet. and the internet is real.
