Let's see... Canada and the US both have really low population densities... and the three cheapest countries have really high population densities...

 

That couldn't have anything to do with it, though.

The fact that we pay subsidized prices for our hardware couldn't have anything to do with this could it? 

If you ask me it's crazy that we purchase hardware from the service provider.  Then again, in many cases we don't have much choice.

I find it funny that Japan is the most "advanced" country of the three cheapest countries with cellphone plans.

 

See? They're doing something right. I would switch to a Japanese carrier in a heartbeat if they provided service here [/wishful thinking]

Not to be a smart*** or anything, but when did Canada shift away from North America...?

It's only a matter of time before the US annexes Canada anyway.

The post was updated. :P

 

Also, I can see it now... *US Marches across the border* "You guys are American now." *Canadians look surprised* "Wait, wha...? Ok..."

I don't know.  Frenchameranadian doesn't really roll off the tongue.

No, but being called a French 'Merinadian would make you sound delicious.

P.S.  MaxPC, why do I have to do a CAPTCHA to *edit* something I already posted?  Isn't the point to block spambots?  Making manual posts and sending my spambots back to edit them wouldn't be a little more difficult than copy/paste?

The US would kick Quebec out before Quebec would have a chance to try and seperate!

You think we'd give up that easily? Most of you yanks wouldn't last a week in our winters!

You'd be drunk off your ass after one drink of our alcohol too!

The United States sits farther North than Canada.  I'll just go ahead and say that Alaska is our 49th state.  It's also our largest state.  You want to talk about cold winters.

 

Now beer on the other hand.  Cheers mate.

Actually, if you look at the map of North America, we extend up in to the north pole. Well above Alaska.

 

But that's beside the point. Lets go for a pint eh!
