    "Bad ice?" As in "can't go ice fishing?" (Around here, that's construction season, though nowadays construction is year-round, so I guess it should be "heavier construction season.")

    No, actually it was quite accurate. I should know, as they invade my city every weekend.

    I can't think of a single thing that I like more about America over Canada, except the cheaper prices.

    Come on over man.

    Not better, just faster.

    Having gone through multiple surgeries, I'm left to wonder if I was American would I be without an arm by now? Hmmm.

    edit: I should probability clarify that I was referring to the costs.

    No, better. Please, I'm a Canuck that lives in the US and I run healthcare organizations for a living. You might not want to believe me but I know of what I speak. It's also fun to tweak other Canucks with this as they always get bent out of shape.

    Nope. Please, I get into accidents and appear at the doctor's/hospital for a living.

    Second, what good is fast and nice healthcare when not every member of your population can afford it?

    I'm actually not a Canadian citizen, Swiss to be precise so no bending from this man.
