Satirical in what way? Are you glad that "real crime" was fought at the G20 summit in Toronto?

I had serious beefs with the whole security thing at the G20. I made that clear in other posts. Nice try though.

Here's what I got: The title of the thread is "Florida, Strange things in a strange state."

Gosthacked then said, in the opening post: On another forum I regularly visit, there are posts now and then that we term 'Florida'. Like only really strange things seem to happen there. Could it be all the retired Canadians living there? Could be, could be.

Is the insinuation that only strange things seem to happen in Florida because of all the retired Canadians living there, or that only strange things seem to get posted on this board because of all the Canadians living there, posting about strange things on the board? Because the rest of the post had nothing to do with Canadians doing anything strange.

I guess I confused some people here. I had put in the Canadian bit, because we all know BC likes to get his diggs in when he can. You can bank on him making some kind of statement. You could look at it as trolling the troll, but that was not my intention. He struggles in many occasions to try and get the hit in while trying to be funny. Trying being the key word here. And you know trying is for losers.

But anyways I shall clarify. Like Shwa says (you know I don't agree with him on many things and yet he was able to read my real intention for this thread) it was more of a localized thing. The term 'Florida' is just that. There is no need to assume I am speaking for ALL Floridians, or Americans for that matter. People are reading too much into this thread it seems, I mean relax a bit, take the gloves off and share a laugh with me. I even posted a Canadian example of this thing we term 'Florida', but zooooom right over the heads of people.

You know if I got offended with everything and everytime BC posts about Canada, I would not have lasted as long as I have on this board. You have to consider the source. :D

So here is another thing 'Florida'

I guess if you have not seen the evolution of these 'Forida' posts on the other forum, I can understand that initially people would be offended.

Next time I take queues from our American counterparts here and not caring of who I offend when I post.

But it wasn't enough to rise to the level of a "Florida"? Did you post a thread titled "Ontario...strange things in a strange province?"

No, like Heather Mallick and Alaska, trolling for "Florida" is for losers.

What term "Florida"? Did you make this up by yourself?

We are...laughing at you. Funny!

Payback is a bitch....this is a "localized thing" that perhaps goes over your head.

DUH! Ya think?

You already take all your queues from America and Americans...LOL!

I could. Hmm I guess I will. I am sure there is a bit of 'Florida' in all of us.

FISH ON !!!!! I think I need bigger test line. Or a down rigger.

I wish I could take credit for it, but they were not my brain child. It was the brainchild of a poster who actually lives in Florida.

Good, I am glad I can provide entertainment for you south of the 49th. I guess not everything that is entertaining is USA.

Over your head as well. There is no payback to be had. There is no game to be played.

DUH! Ya think?

Herp a derp durrrrr.

Not all, I still have a long way to go before I can equate myself with you. That pedestal is way to high for me.

I know you will view it one way, and that's not my problem, but in the end I am fine with it. I have accepted you for what you are, and again I will apologize for it in true Canadian fashion. :D

Why are you "apologizing" at all? Do you not have the strength of conviction that prompted the original post? If you are going to offend an entire state, even in jest, don't slink away after the fact.

Until the "state" somehow declares that it's offended, I don't know that this offense has occurred.

We'll have to wait until he takes yet another cue from a Floridian (American), his self admitted motivation.

He's not a "state" which can, as you say, somehow be offended.

Maybe...won't know until he reacts to the next stimulus from Florida or any other place in America. No wonder he hates digital copyright protection! :)

When I get another 'Florida' story I will be sure to post it here. And the DRM is irrelevant to the topic at hand. But at least you are consistent in your tangents. Actually come to think of it you would feel quite at home in Florida. You don't have a sense of humour like I thought you did. I guess you only laugh at Canadians and our stupidity.

Come on BC you can do better than this .. remember you ARE American which means you are better than me... right? I am just a lowly pitiful Canadian.

The trolls always eventually hang themselves with their own ropes.

But he can take comfort in the fact that his rope was Made in the USA!

Well like he said, if we did not make any posts about the US, he would not have a reason to post here. So that kind of tells you what we are dealing with.

Well, at least your "stupidity"....I don't know most Canadians just like you don't know most Floridians.

No...I have always maintained (and mocked) your assumed (and smug) superiority. I am only here all this time because of the scope and depth of America in so many aspects of expression and perception. And of course, I have no idea what it is to be so utterly dominated by another (stupid) nation's gravity.

I love the US and its people, and I love that the US is our neighbour. I especially appreciate the fact that if my country, Canada, was threatened by a mutual enemy that the US would be the first to come to Canada's defence and vice versa, of this I have no doubt. I am gratified that the US provides us a meter against which we can measure our worth. I like to think that the sentiment is mutual and so far, I have not been disappointed. The US learns from us and we learn from the US. We share the same continent and to a large extent the same values. What's there not to be thankful for.

All true, but not for the neighbourly reasons you have cited. Distinctions are made between nation state and individual relationships...which thrive because of mutual benefit.

But alas, this is a very one-sided circumstance...sometimes to the point of being harmful if longstanding Canadian "cultural" protections are any measure. As I have stated before, when it comes to Canada (and many other places), most Americans don't know, don't care, and don't care that they don't know.

Many Floridians are Canadians :D So I may know more about 'Floridians' than you Canadians, unless you live in Florida.

There is smug/superiority, but it's not coming from me. I know you have a sense of humour deep down inside that cold heart of yours. It really shows your mettle when you are offended by this kind of post.

Not only that it took you over 24 hrs to respond. You're slipping!

Ahem...far more Floridians are Americans, so I doubt you know more about them. I have actually lived in Florida (Pensacola, Jacksonville, Cocoa West, and St. Mary's GA). Perhaps you have been to Orlando on holiday to worship our Disney god?

More curious than offended....though I am certain that an American jab at Ontario or British Columbia would evoke a similar response. Heather Mallick sought to purposely offend Alaska, and succeeded!

"That's so Ontario!"

Now, Maui in the 1980s...there you might be able to argue a preponderance of Canadians to Americans. Time shares...yah know.

I would not mind a trip to Disney Land myself. Plenty of rides to experience. Maybe I can hang out with the Snowbirds while I am there.

Give it a shot, nothing holding you back.

It could very well be.

Then you'll have to go to California, since that's where Disneyland is. B) Not sure how many Snowbirds there are there, though.

Ahh yes .. is it Disney World in Florida. Either one sounds good to me. But not Euro-Disney.
