I think I saw a commercial for that, recommending that I talk to my doctor before starting any new medication.


"You have more and more people who believe that they have a legal right to go through life without seeing or without hearing things they find to be offensive."

If these people would just stay under the covers in their mothers' basements, life would be so much easier for the rest of us.

“We’ve become way too sensitive. You can’t say anything anymore to anybody.”
"Canadians are becoming increasingly less tolerant of free expression."

Sounds like the American dream.

I may be a bit assumptive to think The Indigenous People of Manitoba wrote Jumpin' JacK Flash, not Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. They also opened for Queensrÿche.

In an unaired Star Trek episode, the Borg scanned Canada for possible assimilation. When the results were in, the Borg shook their collective heads and moved on.

I'm not sure why Bjorn Borg is offended ..... who else possibly could be ?

And if he had chosen the Kligons' motto, "Today is a good day to die", there'd be no problem?


Some one probaby saw it as ASS I'm L8 and thus...

Insurance is irrelevant.

Captain, sensors report no signs of intelligent life in the quadrant known as Canada. As an example, look at the sport known as "Curling".
