    Misconceptions

    Let's see how many common misconceptions we share on anything.

    That it's freezing cold in Canada.

    I live south of parts of the States, most parts of Canada (well the populated parts) the weather is comparable to much of the US.

    I used to work in a travel-oriented job and you would not believe the amount of people that would bring up skis in July and wanted to know where the nearest ski place is.
    If you go through a lot of hammers each month, I don't think it necessarily means you're a hard worker.
    It may just mean that you have a lot to learn about proper hammer maintenance.

    If those people were annoying, you could send them to the furtherest spot possible. I believe it has to do with people thinking it is always colder up north.

    Sushi...

    Sushi is a side-dish type of food from Japan. It is not raw fish! Sashimi is raw fish! Big difference. There may be sashimi on your sushi... but believe me, they are definately two-different things...

    Okay... let's get this straight about Canada.

    Canada is cold. However, you can go outside for longer than 10 minutes in the winter and not get hypothermia.

    Little known fact - You are actually capable of getting tanned in the summer in Canada.

    And I did not know that about Sushi. Mark me down for thinking that it is always raw fish.

    Good one, Miss F! I had that same problem when I lived in Buffalo. Friends from other parts of the country would ask me mid-August "so, is there snow on the ground?"

    I also used to get a lot of people who assumed I could just hang out in NYC all the time, because obviously every city in the entire state is a suburb of Manhattan. It was like "Um, no. It's several hundred miles away." I also had people ask me if I could see the smoke rising after 9/11, :rolleyes

    Good one to eldee, too. I had no idea! This thread will probably end up teaching me a lot!
