Who cares aboot Canada....seriously.

It's kinda like in high school when another school would claim to be our rivals -- what a joke. If you are nowhere near competing with us, you aren't our rival.

Betting systems suck, especially if you're trying to impress someone. If your idea is to impress, you do that buy playing BIG MONEY, not some shitty 5 10 20 40 80 160 320 640 1280 1560 3120 system. You're gonna look like a loser when you bust out. If you actually want to impress someone in a casino (wait what the fuck???), you flat bet big money. If you can bankroll that shitty martingale system, you can flat bet $100.

Wait, here's a better idea -- you don't try to impress someone in a casino, that's idiotic.


And don't kid yourself, seriously, you use a betting system because you think you can win with it and are making up some stupid shit excuse "for betting systems to be OK".

USING A BETTING SYSTEM IS NEVER OKAY. (Unless you're counting and the getting system is based on edge not wins/losses.)

This is true. Nobody in the US even thinks about
Canada. It has a tiny population compared to us.

I had a black cab driver who was always bitching
about the white man does this and that to the
black man, he's always plotting against the black
man. I finally told him the truth, it's worse than
that. We never think about blacks, let alone
plot against them.

That's Canada.

Ontariodealer said he couldn't believe we were as high as
19th. And Canada is 20th.

In theory, they should, but in reality, they don't. It's no different than people repeating the same mistakes throughout history over and over again.


Here's part of an 8th grade test from 1912. I doubt anyone on this forum would ace the complete exam.


This is often how many old people feel, that's probably due to getting old and bitter or being stuck in the past. They think EVERYTHING the young do is dumb.
kids then played with a stick for hours, now they play with I pads and the internet. I wish some oldies would find a stick again and leave the internet to the kids they bitch about, but no they are doing what they complain kids are doing.

If you do some research you will in fact find that kids are smarter today then years ago.

Smarter when it comes to technology? Of course, there were no smartphones or iPads 100 years ago.
Smarter when it comes to learning about gay history? Of course, public schools today love that kind of stuff.
But smarter when it comes to knowing the plot of 'The Odyssey' or locating countries on a map? I doubt it.

People don't know much about the son who never became king. They know about the son who became king.

Sorry Canada, but when you "ask for permission to be your own government" instead of claim it as your birthright you need to take a step down on the importance scale. The US has been more important than any other country for the last 110 years (to grab a figure off the top of my head)

There are plenty of things Canada does better than the US. However, knowing facts about the most important country over the last 110 years compared to an also ran...not shocking you know more than us.

This is the crucial element. Knowing the plot of The Odyssey is less important when I have a magic device which can deliver that information to me in less than a minute via a well crafted web search. This is why technology skills are more important, because the REPLACE memory skills.

You don't worry about how exactly to turn a cow hide into a pair of boots do you?

[BTW: I loved The Odyssey. I thought it was more fun than the Iliad or most of the other standard Greek canon]

The #1 reason for education (high school and lower) is to teach kids how to learn, so they can think critically, and have a brain that can adapt in the future. It's being able to think outside the box and put 2 and 2 together.
