"Imagine my surprise today when I looked at a map for the first time ever."

Canadian girl: See, I always thought that Canada was North America, and that South America was the United States.

In a hundred years from now, Canada likely will be North America, and Mexico will be South America with the States becoming Central America.

I've actually heard of people thinking Canada was called "North" because on the world map that's what shows up over Canada, and "America" shows up over the USA. USA-holes!!!

10:45 --> Brazil will now form part of newly named "South Central America." It's the continent where people jack your Nikes as soon as speak to you at you and where cocaine flows through the streets just as freely as the blood does from freshly-quashed peasant farmer uprisings. In other words... it's paradise!

Also, in an unrelated effort to boost its tourism industry, Chile will be renamed "Super Smokin Hot" as soon as is practicable.

Don't love me, 8:22. Love my (near) universally derided degree in English for helping cultivate a perpetually fresh and entertaining vocabulary.

/I'm sure the science students will have an 'adequate' retort prepared in no time.

In other words, what?? And, way to go!!

obviously 8:22 started to write something different, like maybe "as soon as look at you", and missed deleting part of it when changing it. Faulty editing is to be expected in a relatively rushed form of expression, such as a blog comment. Way to be a jerk-face. :D

also, he (she?) pointed out you were going to retort... and then you did... hating on the grammar mishap, could be expected. doesn't that make you feel a little too predictable? a little like you played into his (her?) hands? come on now, science. pick up your game. gotta keep 'em guessing.
