But sure enough I was greeted 3 different times today with either ' cold enough for ya' or ' this isnt cold, one time in some year of yore it was minus a billion and we had to cut wood and sleep naked under pelts just to make it through the night....in a shoe box in the middle of the road'
If you got all the references in that last paragraph, you are either over 40 or have too much time watching netflix, either way, Bravo.
All I'm saying is while a certain Prime Minister is busy destroying our country from within and tarnishing our reputation world wide, couldnt he add taking over some warmer nations closer to the equator and moving the country lock stock and barrel there? With gas prices the way they are, I would totally chip in for gas.
Now I am not advocating starting a large scale war just to be warmer, but lets use our Canadianness and all vacation to the desired destination at the same time, and apologize our way into the hearts and minds of the local inhabitants. Or at least blind them all with our yeti white skin reflecting the sun into their eyes.
Now I dont mind crisp weather, a little cold, but I cannot abide anything below -20, i think that is fair.
I just dont understand people that enjoy that kind of cold, the same way i dont understand people that enjoy camping. BOOOM!
As a kid i was a boy scout and my dad had a job that if we wanted to see him in the summer months we were flown, helicoptered, sea planed, and or portaged to random obscure places in Northern Canada, so I speak from a place of experience and not ignorance. I did more camping before the age of 12 then some people will ever do in a lifetime.
Now that I am older and have had the pleasure of staying in hotels, i will never quite get why people would choose sleeping in a tent then sleeping in a room with a pillow top mattress and a working shower. If I want nature, I can get a massage with nature music in the background, i would gladly substitute the strong tough of Sven or Olga for my own hands swatting my flesh trying to kill the latest creepy crawly that has invaded my space. Various massage oils for calamine lotion and lastly a toilet that with a whoosh removes byproducts not required by the body instead of a hole in the ground with years of the same byproduct combining for potency to assault the nasal cavity and scar my brain.
So there you have it, I dislike the extreme cold, and camping, maybe I have to turn in my Canadian card or something but i love bacon and hockey so maybe it all balances out.
Two rants for the price of one!
