How Stereotypically Canadian Are You (http://www.buzzfeed.com/tanyachen/how-stereotypically-canadian-are-you)

I got 29 out of 96 and was rated..

You are as Canadian as two geese standing in a doorway playing a friendly round of “no, you go first!” You are not TRUE-ly-NORTH-STRONG-AND-FREE, but you are still pretty darn Canadian. Although you have some thoughtful and caring Canadian tendencies, you’ll need to implement a few more “sorrys,” snowmobiles and syrup skills into your life.

"You are THE ULTIMATE Canadian! And that’s a pretty, shiny high score, eh? You are the most Canadian. You are the model Canadian. You grew up playing pick-up shinny on your backyard pond every winter weekend and maybe even lost a few teeth in the process. You are impossibly polite, considerate, and say sorry at least once in every conversation. Your kitchen is always stocked with KD and you’ve got enough flannel shirts to last you an entire month. While everyone else is enjoying summer you’re depressed because it’s the NHL off season. Raise a bottle of Molson and cheers to your awesomeness (but not too much because you’re a humble Canadian who doesn’t like to draw attention to yourself!)"

Hmmm. "kind" of Canadian. 31 of 96. But then, I'm a New Englander and a lot of that hockey and snow and maple syrup stuff comes nacherlly. The rest I see at Hampton Beach every summer. I didn't notice speedos on the list however.

You are SUPER Canadian! You are as Canadian as two Mounties tossing a hockey puck back and forth in the great outdoors while humming the national anthem (in English AND French) under their sub-zero-degree breaths.

Upon reflection Colonel, I think you might be correct. Australians might may be Canadians by default and vice versa. Two vast nations united by a shared history, a love of wide open spaces and a disdain of baseball.

You have the southern neighbors as a final destination for it and the other tool.

Besides, Aussies have all those exotic life forms around their coast, just in case.

Tell me about it Colonel. A lot of those Frostbacks are bent a menace on I-95 these days. Had 3 run ins with bad with bad Canadian drivers yesterday in a 10 mile stretch....nothing like an RV on your bumper doing 70 in a 55 MPH zone....and when I could finally pull over to center lane, which was packed, it zoomed past me...towing an Explorer.

Of course. What is Canada but a colder, bogan-free, poisonous mammal-free (am I being redundant here?) version of Canada? You have your Foster's and we have our Molson's. We're united by shitty beer and a common language.

Not sure if Canada is bogan free but it does produce some good whiskey and we produce some good wine so we can both avoid bad beers if necessary. A for poisonous mammals, I think I would prefer to be spiked by a platypus rather a porcupine.

Love to have you Doc. Just eat plenty of Vegemite to keep the drop bears away & NEVER go outside....except when you bug bomb the house to kill the spiders;) Oh, and watch out for the kangaroos. Just talked to a guy whose stationary car was attacked by a 'roo. Fast, strong & hostile. Eating them is the best revenge. :biggrin:

It's cheaper to just buy a bag of milk and add sugar to it. It'll have more caffeine than a Timmies anyway. Yes, rest of the world, we get our milk in bags.

Yup. Never touch the stuff.

Coffee liqueur, Bailey's Irish cream, coffee flavoured ice cream all good, but actual coffee? No. Means there are several suburbs of Melbourne I am banned from and I got strange looks all over Ethiopia, but never acquired a taste for the beverage.

We did that back in Taiwan. I grew up on powdered milk. My parents still boil water every single morning to make their tea 'til this day, in the US. They don't trust the water from the faucet. They never have to worry about water borne illness that occur here from time to time. The advice from the news channel is always this: boil the water...

I'm afraid I'm not very Canadian. I missed a lot of points on living in the cold. I did feel terrible when the US Women's team blew a 2 goal lead with 3 minutes to go in the gold medal game.

Does watching the CSpan coverage of the Canadian election earn any points?

Yup, we do that at home too. We have these huge copper urns with water that are boiled on the gas. Then covered with lids, and allowed to cool down. And then one by one, depending on consumption rate, poured through a fine muslin cloth (doubled up) into an eartheware pot with a lid and a tap (matka we call it in Hindi). This keeps the water cool and fresh the whole day, and is the drinking and cooking water source for the whole household.

Even when going outdoors, or even outstation, we prefer to carry this water for the kids rather than buy bottled mineral water.

1. Boil the water
2. Put the tea in the boiled water
3. Leave it like that to cool down
4. remove the tea
5. put in the fridge
6. put ice cubes
7. serve

If you are a Canadian, skip steps, 3, 5 and 6 :hug:
