@AlephKnoll Southern Quebec has historically been the most Americophillic part of Canada

2019-01-10 17:02:51 UTC

and it's full of....

2019-01-10 17:02:51 UTC

including the birthplace of both iterations of Parti 51

2019-01-10 17:02:55 UTC

We don’t want to absorb your shitty government or the Quebecois.

2019-01-10 17:02:57 UTC

take Toronto, please

2019-01-10 17:03:04 UTC

southern QC is amriphobic AF.

2019-01-10 17:03:27 UTC

We should take everything south of the saint Laurence

2019-01-10 17:03:39 UTC

well

2019-01-10 17:03:45 UTC

during the war of 1812, the americans tried to get the help of the quebecois, thinking they didn't like being ruled by the brittish... but they didn't know that the only people the quebecois trust less than the british at the time, were the americans.

2019-01-10 17:03:45 UTC

you don't have to take at this point

2019-01-10 17:03:49 UTC

Dunno about the city, but the southern part of the province as a whole has a history of pro-Americanism dating back some 100-200 years

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/532966360519802890/532967814726942721/Parti_51.jpg

2019-01-10 17:03:56 UTC

you could just ask and western canada would probably join

2019-01-10 17:04:17 UTC

my only problem is if ever you get a Hillary in office

2019-01-10 17:04:26 UTC

we're getting rid of Trudeau this year

2019-01-10 17:04:38 UTC

tbh it's a shame southern Saskatchewan didn't join circa Quebec independence referendum. The contiguous US could have been shaped like a giant middle finger flipping off the rest of the world.

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/532966360519802890/532968020759281691/American_Saskatchewan.png

2019-01-10 17:04:38 UTC

Well, if Quebec had left in the 90ms, Saskatchewan joining was a real possibility.

2019-01-10 17:04:39 UTC

I wouldn't be so sure about that... vote splitting is a thing.

2019-01-10 17:04:54 UTC

@RMS_Gigantic you must be murican?

2019-01-10 17:05:00 UTC

Alberta is considering it right now

2019-01-10 17:05:10 UTC

I heard that once before, but I want proof

2019-01-10 17:05:18 UTC

What party or referendum item?

2019-01-10 17:05:23 UTC

Give me something to research here

2019-01-10 17:05:24 UTC

If alberta is going to be annexed, I'm going to move to Alberta.

2019-01-10 17:05:26 UTC

look up Alberta seperatism

2019-01-10 17:05:37 UTC

Separatism and annexationism are two different things

2019-01-10 17:05:38 UTC

they need access to tide water for their pipeline..

2019-01-10 17:06:11 UTC

We’ll take Manitoba as well, give us access to the bay.

2019-01-10 17:06:13 UTC

well, on their own they'd be vulnerable. joining the US is an option.. although, I doubt it'll happen unless Trudeau gets re-elected

2019-01-10 17:06:22 UTC

I couldn't give less of a shit about separatism, I'm interested in annexationism, and to that end the Parti 51 political party in Quebec seems to be the only serious, organized, official entity in Canada putting forward a pro-American annexation platform in the entire country.

2019-01-10 17:06:24 UTC

if shit face gets back in, I'd look into it more seriously

2019-01-10 17:06:50 UTC

Also they've been putting out dank-ass images on their Facebook like this one

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/532966360519802890/532968573933715470/Parti_51.jpg

2019-01-10 17:07:21 UTC

well, I can say this, @RMS_Gigantic - I definitely feel closer to my american neighbours than I used to

2019-01-10 17:07:27 UTC

how do you feel about americans switching to metric though?

2019-01-10 17:07:34 UTC

theres no way we are switching to imperial

2019-01-10 17:07:43 UTC

switching?

2019-01-10 17:07:46 UTC

how old are you, son?

2019-01-10 17:07:50 UTC

Both nations use both systems due to their proximity to each other

2019-01-10 17:08:10 UTC

do constructions sites back east use metric?

2019-01-10 17:08:22 UTC

everyone does.

2019-01-10 17:08:27 UTC

???

2019-01-10 17:08:34 UTC

people still build using imperial here

2019-01-10 17:08:53 UTC

I-19 from Tuscon, AZ to the Mexican border uses Metric

2019-01-10 17:09:00 UTC

and some speed limit signs along the Canadian border

2019-01-10 17:09:36 UTC

the old school guys haven't changed. if you're gonna go on a construction site, you need to know how to do it in feet and inches

2019-01-10 17:09:36 UTC

And for the record, Quebec could continue to use the metric system

2019-01-10 17:10:06 UTC

Even if they adopt US road signage common to the other states, the guide includes metric signage for speed limits

2019-01-10 17:11:19 UTC

though thanks to the American application of federalism, states can maintain their own standards for a LOT of shit

2019-01-10 17:11:33 UTC

I was just saying that imperial is still used in some parts of canada, especially in house construction

2019-01-10 17:11:55 UTC

In fact, Parti 51 essentially advocates for their position as a sort of middle road between independence and federation, with the shortcomings of each addressed via American statehood

2019-01-10 17:12:08 UTC

Yeah, and metric is used in some places down here

2019-01-10 17:12:23 UTC

The Metric system is no less a barrier than language is

2019-01-10 17:12:32 UTC

There are a few parts of my state highways that use Metric

2019-01-10 17:12:41 UTC

and giving Quebec statehood wouldn't even be the first time the US granted statehood to a majority French-speaking area

2019-01-10 17:12:44 UTC

I don't really mind it so long as the imperial measurement is indicated beside it

2019-01-10 17:12:51 UTC

That particular honor goes to Louisiana at time of admission

2019-01-10 17:15:12 UTC

``` Yeah, and metric is used in some places down here ```
I'm actually surprised..

2019-01-10 17:15:30 UTC

Hell, look at US food labeling

2019-01-10 17:15:42 UTC

Lousana only has a french quarter or what?

2019-01-10 17:16:00 UTC

It does today

2019-01-10 17:16:07 UTC

they speak cooler french than quebecquer french

2019-01-10 17:16:09 UTC

but when it was first admitted as a state, it was majority French-speaking

2019-01-10 17:16:36 UTC

east of Quebec is the canadian cajuns called acadiens

2019-01-10 17:16:38 UTC

But yeah, soda cans, for example, have their sizes labeled as "12 FL OZ (355 mL)"

2019-01-10 17:17:17 UTC

and it's pretty common in science fields, while American engineers tend to work in US Customary units

2019-01-10 17:17:33 UTC

well good. metric makes more sense

2019-01-10 17:17:51 UTC

Nah, US Customary does, especially in engineering and day-to-day use

2019-01-10 17:18:57 UTC

what is us customary units?

2019-01-10 17:19:15 UTC

What most folks call "Imperial units" as used in the US

2019-01-10 17:19:25 UTC

It's called US Customary because it differs from Imperial in certain ways

2019-01-10 17:19:29 UTC

including volumes

2019-01-10 17:19:38 UTC

Imperial is how the Brits use it

2019-01-10 17:20:34 UTC

But yeah, on the engineering front, consider the following: If you're told to find gravitational potential energy but weren't given a formula or unit conversions, which would you find easier:
Height in meters, mass in kilograms, and informed that the answer will be in Joules
or
Height in feet, weight in pounds, and informed that the answer will be in foot-pounds

2019-01-10 17:21:44 UTC

Meanwhile on the mathematics side, base 12 is generally significantly easier to work with given that it has more factors than 10 (1, 2, 3, 4, 6, and 12, versus 1, 2, 5, 10 respectively)

2019-01-10 17:22:27 UTC

and on the everyday front, 2s, 3s, and 4s are easier to mentally approximate than 10s

2019-01-10 17:22:38 UTC

🤔

2019-01-10 17:23:15 UTC

Then just on the nomenclature and size front, a tablespoon generally makes for a damn good approximation, if not measuring instrument, for what constitutes a tablespoon of a substance

2019-01-10 17:23:35 UTC

And guess what common household item can similarly be used to approximate the US customary unit "teaspoon"

2019-01-10 17:24:45 UTC

Anyway, back to talk about history and annexing Canada

2019-01-10 17:25:35 UTC

There were repeated proposals, attempts, and invitations on the part of the US for Canada to get annexed

https://cdn.discordapp.com/attachments/532966360519802890/532973294849228831/Annexation_Bill_of_1866.gif

2019-01-10 17:25:43 UTC

We almost got Newfoundland back in 1946

2019-01-10 17:25:44 UTC

It was close

2019-01-10 17:25:55 UTC

But Congress rejected their invitation

2019-01-10 17:26:11 UTC

And the Brits prevented them from holding such a referendum

2019-01-10 17:26:42 UTC
2019-01-10 17:26:43 UTC

much like how the Brits forbade British Columbia from seeking American annexation following the Alaska Purchase, despite BC having been led by an annexationist governor at the time

2019-01-10 17:27:09 UTC

Also in 1946, we offered $100,000,000 to Denmark if they'd sell us Greenland

2019-01-10 17:27:30 UTC

In 1917 they had accepted $25,000,000 for their share of the West Indies, for perspective

2019-01-10 17:27:54 UTC

New Brunswick, coolest flag

2019-01-10 17:29:44 UTC

2019-01-10 17:32:03 UTC

just ask

2019-01-10 17:32:13 UTC

And yes, it would be, because Canada seemed very unlikely to declare itself a republic or allow US occupation of significant chunks of land at that time

2019-01-10 17:32:24 UTC

as stated here

The difference is, a core part of the American identity doesn't revolve around contrarianism against Canada

2019-01-10 17:33:35 UTC

2019-01-10 17:34:17 UTC

I mean that Canada is so hell-bent on anti-Americanism that they'll more eagerly hitch their wagon to *monarchism* than dare be a republic like the US.

2019-01-10 17:35:02 UTC

or a majority of Canadians would rather call China a larger economy than the US when it's demonstrably untrue

2019-01-10 17:35:29 UTC

@AlephKnoll A constitutional monarchy led by the head of a de jure absolute monarchy

2019-01-10 17:35:35 UTC

@RMS_Gigantic I don't know where you're getting your info, but there's not just snowflakes up here just like Murica isn't just Hillary supporters

2019-01-10 17:35:39 UTC

2019-01-10 17:35:49 UTC

the queen has basically no influence on our politics

2019-01-10 17:36:06 UTC

Well that's the rub now, isn't it, crypto: Either they're American contrarians or American annexationists

2019-01-10 17:36:09 UTC

@RMS_Gigantic you know what's a good Canadian?

2019-01-10 17:36:10 UTC

they apoint a govenor general, whose only job is to give royal assent to the bills we tell them to.

2019-01-10 17:36:14 UTC

A dead one.

@AlephKnoll Except when the governor-general ejects a duly elected prime minister as what happened in Australia in 1975

2019-01-10 17:37:05 UTC

not really, @RMS_Gigantic
I can see why you think Cads are snowflakes... our media's been taken over for one and our "leader" is a globalist puppet...
and it goes back pretty far because his dad did the same thing.

people are waking up to the socialism bullshit

2019-01-10 17:37:21 UTC

this history channel needs more ancient aliens

2019-01-10 17:37:29 UTC

it shouldn't happen... but it does.

2019-01-10 17:37:34 UTC

2019-01-10 17:38:54 UTC

or food

2019-01-10 17:38:57 UTC

2019-01-10 17:39:00 UTC

we're getting queer ones soon

2019-01-10 17:39:53 UTC

is annexation really *that* bad?

2019-01-10 17:40:08 UTC

Canadian annexation should have happened under the Articles of Confederation

2019-01-10 17:40:11 UTC

i'd rather we just stopped being such cucks on our own

2019-01-10 17:40:20 UTC

tru dat

2019-01-10 17:40:23 UTC

'cept we burnt down the frigin whitehouse

2019-01-10 17:40:35 UTC

To quote Article XI from the Articles of Confederation, ```Canada acceding to this confederation, and joining in the measures of the united states, shall be admitted into, and entitled to all the advantages of this union: but no other colony shall be admitted into the same, unless such admission be agreed to by nine states.```

2019-01-10 17:40:49 UTC

We laid out the red carpet and everything

2019-01-10 17:40:53 UTC

but nope, too stubborn

2019-01-10 17:40:54 UTC

you need still to control the border for a long time or the gay will spread in to the US after the annexation

2019-01-10 17:41:11 UTC

that's tru ^

2019-01-10 17:41:14 UTC

That's why I advocate for an American Samoa-style situation

2019-01-10 17:41:29 UTC

Make Canadians into American non-citizen nationals upon annexation, instead of citizens

2019-01-10 17:41:37 UTC

nope
