I think it's because they shrink Canada on globes. True Story.

Doesn't Austrailia also shrink to allow space for the Indonisian Islands? It sounds like BS, but I could've sworn somebody told me that.

Wait. I lied. I meant on maps. They shrink on world maps. Not globes.

We... we're bigger, sorry.

Australia is 2.97 million square miles.

Canada > Australia


0.o Well I was owned.....and on my 100th post too. :(
How the hell is Canada that big? Is there some tucked away in the back there or something?

And did you count Tasmania when getting square footage of Australia? Lol, 'course not...who remembers Tasmania? They're all a bunch of weirdies.

Cake wrote:And their ancestors weren't criminals. :P


Oi, only SOME of our ancestors were criminals. There's a very large populous of us that came from the middle class of British society thank you. And a few that came from the upper class...but only a few.

Besides, I think you'll find that even if there were direct descendants from the convicts here, their bloodlines would have been diluted enough to wring the supposed convict out of them. (Assuming of course, that the impracticality of genetic memory was passed down through the generations allowing the brand name of 'convict' to arise within them.)

Anyway, was Alex there?? I thought I heard his voice. Otherwise someone sounds a lot like him, or is way too quiet. Cool to hear Ash too, I recognised her voice. ^.^

"WHAT A TWIST." Lol, Robot Chicken. I use that line all the time....not enough people get it though.

Hrm, I wasn't actually aware that Blu Ray had basically won in the race between HD-DVD and itself. Cool info.

And yet again, another week passes without my new goal of getting my name said on a Podcast occurring....

I really didn't think blu-ray had been winning the the race, mostly because Blu-ray sounds like it's trying to be all edgy and cool, whereas HD-DVD tells you exactly what you're getting.

Maybe that's why it's winning, because large companies can use the fact that it sounds edgy as a selling point. And to my experience, the masses generally go for what sounds cool vs what is effective. Besides the quality difference between the two is minimal, correct?

Anyway, I'm going to bed at 2am...so G'consequential time of the rotation of the Earth to all. ^.^

I just bought Rock Band and I can not believe I made the funniest resolution. For achievements there's a Guitar Hero 3 achievement where you have to beat a developer of the game in a "duel" to earn it.

I've played Rock Band, and I'll still be buying Guitar Hero III instead...

I don't know what it is, but I honestly enjoy the PLAYING aspect of Guitar Hero III more. Maybe we weren't drunk enough, maybe one of our people consistently sucked too much, who knows, but Rock Band didn't quite cut it for me. There were many lol's, but as far as a game, I'm liking GHIII more.

Because there are fewer things funnier than a pissed off Orson Wells.
