    Some points to ponder over the holiday...

    Only in America ......do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the
    back of the store to get their prescriptions while healthy people can buy
    cigarettes at the front.

    Only in America.....do people order a double cheeseburger, large fries, and
    a diet coke.

    Only in America... do banks leave both doors open but chain the pens
    to the counters.

    Only in America... do we leave cars worth thousands of dollars in the
    driveway and put our useless junk in the garage.

    Only in America... do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in
    packages of eight.

    Only in America... do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.

    EVER WONDER...

    Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?

    Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?

    Why don't you ever see the headline 'Psychic Wins Lottery'?

    Why is 'abbreviated' such a long word?

    Why is it that doctors call what they do 'practice'?

    Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?

    Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker?

    Why is the time of day with the slowest traffic called rush hour?

    Why isn't there mouse-flavored cat food?

    Why didn't Noah swat those two mosquitoes?

    Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?

    You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?!

    Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?

    Why are they called apartments when they are all stuck together?

    If con is the opposite of pro, is Congress the opposite of progress?

    If flying is so safe, why do they call the airport the terminal?


    Just some things to think about. Happy Thanksgiving! :D

    Ya! The red ones with the back door flap.

    Dexter, I wonder if they know their coloured (correct spelling!) money is printed by a branch of the Canadian Mint????

    That aint no surprise, most countries beg for our jobs at a cheaper rate!:nana:

    That's not the case.
    The money is printed by Americans in America, in a branch of the Canadian Mint.
    Canada holds the patents and the presses for the process.
    Going by Jack Roushes way of thinking, that would make it Canadian money, right?

    Toyotas are made in the States but Jack feels they're not 'Merican.

    And, just so you know, Canadian wages are generally higher than American for the same job.

    Your right about Jack's backward ass thinking!:smug:

    As for the wages, wouldnt that have something to do with the currency difference, cost of living and so on?

    Whatever.
    You made an assertion that Canada begs for American jobs at cheaper wages......I'm just saying.......... not true.:p

    The cost of living is cheaper in the US in every way. Gas is cheaper, food is cheaper, rent is cheaper, cars are cheaper, booze is cheaper, sporting events is cheaper.

    maybe its just on my end, but the download gets to 98% and then fails.

    I didnt have a problem with the download, it was pretty funny. But this board has been extremely slow this afternoon for me, but as you said, it might be on my end.
