We dont't have to force them to be like us, that's the beauty of federalism-> states can do what ever they want outside of interstate commerce and foreign policy .

  Uh... duh... foreign policy? Gimmie a frickin break. I'm Canadian, and with some minor exceptions I prefer our foriegn policy (ie more neutral) to yours any day of the week. The only major gripe I have is that most of our politicians are more interested in ripping off the taxpayers than differing with our American cousins on policy issues... hence we get to 'participate' every time some small dicked president decides to bomb the crap out of some women, children, domestic animals, and - if the billion dollar war machine is having a good day, maybe a million dollar bomb can blow up a $100 mud hut someplace and you can crow about crippling some enemies 'command and control' ability. Please.... And don't get me started on interstate commerce. Free trade? NAFTA? Thank christ that Quebec decided that bulk water sales to the US were a bad idea and blocked them. So take your annexation dream and blow them out your collective lemming-brained asses, you are not welcome in Canada.

  You tell 'em mate. But i must admit that i wasn't too impressed with Montreal when i visited about 3 months ago.....but at least i found some sort of alcohol, unlike in america (i just got back today; jet-lag blows) where the stupid laws prevent anybody from having some good proper fun.

  I always meant to go to America and not drink, y'know, while I still couldn't. There's a whole drinking and counter-drinking culture in the US that I don't understand. I'll divide it up.

Firstly, American colleges are portrayed as drugged-up beered-up frat houses with parties all day, and little or no work being done. I know this is not the case. Get a grip. I'm guessing that British students drink more frequently (seeing as we drink every day. We're like less fussy versions of winos). Yet Americans, despite all this massive drink-a-thon they give us in concept can't actually drink to save their lives. Note the subtle irony in that, liver-merchants.

Secondly. I understand that some people in America don't want to drink. I wouldn't want to be drunk in a country where there are that many guns. I'd say something stupid. Offending a lot of people is second nature to me. Really it is. But I kinda like the no-drinking ideal. Except it gives rise to people like the lovely (though impossibly shaped and impeccably bizarre) Jennifer Love-Hooters saying that they'd be crazy if they drank, thinking that a few childish pranks are crazy.
The real glory of drunken fun is that those that enjoy it the most don't remember it, and you always end up with a cut. I've woken up with blood pouring down the side of my head - no idea why - in no pain, but been told I was 'crazy' by a lot of people.

I think what I'm saying is this. "Life, like a lot of things, works a lot better when lubricated". Drink, in moderation, but a lot occasionally. Don't not drink, but you can not drink if you wish.

Dang I lost it. Just enjoy yourselves and stay within the boundaries of the law, Patrick.
