eww Air Canada 

Air Canada isn't that bad [as it would seem] I suspect Air France is better.

'Murica.

Honestly that is one of the reasons I'd settle with Canada (even though France would be nice®, though they might be making that shift from pretty chill to like UK/US levels of "Peek-a-boo, you best not be doing something we don't like.") It's ridiculous how like US media (and maybe even British media) portrays all Muslims as vile people just because a small few do commit terrible crimes against those similar and dissimilar to themselves. From sheer experience I know this is not true and it's honestly depressing that a fairly large portion of the US and other places view a group of people that way. Granted I'm an Agnostic Atheist, it's just really annoying how people don't set aside differences and get to know someone different than themselves and live in pure arrogance and ignorance of their ways. 9 times out of 10 I bet you that if someone who was against marriage equality for same sex couples had a family member or loved one who was gay, I'm sure that person who was anti-marriage equality would see that this family member or this loved one isn't a deviant or an evil person. They're just different than oneself and that these differences should not be suppressed but accepted and maybe even celebrated. Another reason Canada seems attractive - The acceptance of difference and the celebration of difference. Whereas in the states, if you're not 100% like the rest of us then you don't deserve to be here.  But I think I sort of took this a tad bit off topic, so I do apologise for that. [Also I know I'm using the "real" way of spelling things not the awkward "American" way. (I.E I spell "Gray" - "Grey" though I do prefer "Gris")

I hope you realize the Canada is only about 7 years behind you in terms of stupid laws. We are following and have worse. In seven years Canada will be worse than the US today. Personally I'd rather a building or two blow up or someone get shot than have the majority of citizens lose their privacy and many of their rights. Majority wins so minor losses are okay with me.

Guessing that's mostly Harper's responsibility for just being all like "eh the US has some stupid laws let's adapt those laws for our own use even if the majority of Canada might not like it."

Wow I would have flipped on them for bending/breaking something.

Haha! That's the last thing you'd want to do. TSA takes themselves pretty seriously. They're kind of the airport Nazi's. They say jump; you ask how high... or you're in for, at best, a very long wait.

Don't take things too seriously on the Internet, you should already know that  :P.


The stars died for you to be here today.

If your card broke, can't you sue them for breaking a 200-300 dollar card? That's clearly NOT a bomb...


Follow the topics you create using the "Follow" button in the top right corner!

One day I will have my GTX 970. One day. PC specs are at my profile.

Not sure how to check what part works with what? Check out my compatibility guide!

hah even me as an arab that got searched multiple times by the TSA has not had them think computer parts were a bomb although they did think my 5kg of hotwheels were a bomb


Thats that. If you need to get in touch chances are you can find someone that knows me that can get in touch.

That's what you get for not having Matchbox cars. Hot Wheels are the toys of Communists. Matchbox cars are the toys of little Patriots!

 

Really though, how in the hell could 5kg of Hot Wheels be seen as a bomb..? "Oh sh*t! There's like 500 wheel-like things on cast-iron shells! They're mobile bombs!"

If I ever carry an electronic with me to the airport, I will ALWAYS have the product manual. 

 

And one question... WHY THE HELL WOULD A BOMB HAVE A FAN???

That was my first thought.


Computer's don't make errors. What they do, they do on purpose. By now your name and particulars have been fed into every laptop, desktop, mainframe and supermarket scanner that collectively make up the global information conspiracy, otherwise known as The Beast.

 

You just be careful. Computers have already beaten the Communists at chess. Next thing you know, they'll be beating humans.
