I've nurtured a long, slow hatred of American cultural imperialism. As a developer, having to spend every working day spelling "colour" wrongly in your code will do that to a man. So, petty as it is, wherever possible, I'll pick a British version of a thing over an American one. And if a British one doesn't exist, I'll seethe quietly while I wait for one.

I'm still waiting for a Canadian edition. But most of the world doesn't know we exist and when they do meet us immediately ask if we're American.

There's a newspaper article from S Korea (around 1997) and on the cover was a photo of a collection of world leaders. The American, English, Korean and Canadian leaders and underneath was the caption letting you know who was who, this is what it said... "From left to right is, Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Kim Young-sam, and an unidentified man" - HEY - that 'unidentified man' was Jean Chretien, our Prime Minister. My Dad cut it out and it's up on his wall. Great shot that does as much to define Canada as hockey or SCTV.





I heard this Marine did a lot of push ups after the game.

Bold, and possibly best opening sentence to a board game review that I've seen in quite awhile.
