Canucks....Is that correct or is that improper politicaly correctness.

Wait a minute. Be right back...This coffee isn't strong enough...Needs more whiskey...

Aah...There. Much better...Where were we...?? Oh yeah...

I would have to admit that if this continent was one country it would be pretty darn nice except we would have to invade mexico so we could spend all our tax dollars rebuilding it... You guys up for that?

I do recall that when I referred to us as Canuckistanians (an American senator's appellation for us if I recall) that Dimitri warned me that some people might find that offensive...hmm....I find them offensive. I think it's all a laugh. Politically correct can kiss my....ahem neighbor's wife..Wanna call me something, call me Stu that's m'name, or tracker, that's my nickname. Can call me friends with 1895 and Bushy and they're on different sides of the border!! Invade Mehico? OK, I'll bring the usual Canajun contribution to invasions....beer!!!

(Now if I happened to be in the right place at the right time and some big old buck turned and happened to step south of the 49th parallel, would I decline the shot? Oh yes officer, absolutely ROFL ROFL

As Canadian's we tend to be proud of our history (well most of us) so we tend to fight off comperisons to the Americans or the British, but really we Canadians are probably somewhere inbetween but at the same time unique, we have had alot of British infulance in the past, and more recently American influance.

A Canadian-American country would be interesting, could get the 2nd Ammendment into Canada. Cool

Canucks is the proper nickname for Canadians, Very Happy Cankastan is a Anti-Canadian American name for Canada. Mad

gelandangan...Do you feel lost maybe?? I guess they (the authors of the questionair) should have asked the question "Do you say "eh", "Mate"
or "Matey"??? That might get every one on the right continent or right part of a continent...

Poll says: "That's a Southern accent you've got there. You may love it, you may hate it, you may swear you don't have it, but whatever the case, we can hear it."


Well, shucks... you all... guess it was my southern drawl that gave me away. Very Happy

Now there's a good laugh. The quiz says that I am from the NorthEast ... most likely Philadelphia. wtf

Pretty odd as I was born in Sydney Australia and now live in Brisbane Australia. Laughing Laughing Laughing

Just goes to show how "stats" can be interpreted to suit the whims of the organisation collecting them. Very Happy

Cheers, Vince

Gave me an Inland North, with a very high Midland type.

The funny thing is if I am around someone for any amount of time I can pick them up right now and the vocal sounds would get me pegged for a local. When I was up in Alaska(Togiak) about three weeks before I found out about some bio family about 20 minutes east Moorehead, MN I fit in perfectly up in that part as I could make the sounds just like them as I had picked it up in Alaska from the Yupik natives, and they(relatives) were very surprised I was from South West Iowa, both areas had abut the same type of vocalizations it was kind of bizzare. Far-Gho, Nort-Da-koTah and snho, you wanna' come with?; let's see what else is there? Oh lots of different things. I once talked with a linguistics student at ISU and she was taught that the folks in this part of the country actually have no accent as we tend to pronounce words almsot exactly as they should be pronounced. Had a room-mate at Iowa Sate who was from Janesville, Whi-Skon-sin who got me to talking like him. So I am not sure just which "accent" I have as it varies according to who I am talking too. You call it I can pretty much do it except for most of the Asian stuff the vowels are so different from what I am used to, but I can say some Chinese words very well. My favorties are Scots and Irish with a good New Zealand and Austrailia, and pretty decent eastern Europe. I have not had the opportunity to try out the Scandanavian types as the only person I knew who could really teach me has been gone since last August but I know I could probably pick it up fairly decently. Had one gal at a local winery tell me I should try out for some acting roles as I sounded "unbelievably perfect."
