    Canada, The Only Place You’ll See Something Like This…

    When I ride my bike I feel free and happy and strong. I'm liberated from the usual nonsense of day to day life. Solid, dependable, silent, my bike is my horse, my fighter jet, my island, my friend. Together we will conquer that hill and thereafter the world.

    I do like our friends in the frozen north, for their sense of humor. That and Fudgeeo Cookies.

    Humor is always good. It makes things light, positive and happy if done in good taste. I also appreciate a good laugh.

    Having dated a Canadian & been to Canada, i can confirm all of this. The border with canada is something like this: US side, grey dreary, sad. Canadian side, bright, rainbows, moose, sugar maple forests, and tim hortons.

    and Smarties. I recall one time I was on a road trip and stopped in a mcdonalds in North Dakota, and ordered a mcflurry, and the lady asked me what kind of topping, and I said Smarties. She looked at me strangely because she have never heard of smarties. I had to change to M and M.

    I've had someone say that I am very british because I was brought up to be polite. So i guess thats a canadian thing to be polite..

    I explained this to my wife and then demonstrated it while we were out by gently bumping into people... she thought it was hilarious.

    That was so polite they deleted all the pictures after the second to get to the point and save our time, you realize. I thought that was nice of them.

    I'm an American and I do this, too. But then my parents were immigrants from Europe. Please don't tell Trump.
