Welcome to Canada, the beautiful land of maple syrup and people saying "Eh." (Sorry, Canada, but this is seriously what we think of first when we think of you — we're morons.) The land where people are known for being unnecessarily polite and for some reason there's a lot of moose.
They even have special containers in which to drink their bagged milk. Because how else would you drink something, considering it's in a bag? Wouldn't it explode all over you? Well, we can thank the metric system for this terrifically confusing milk delivery system.
When Canada converted to the metric system, it required liquids to be sold in liters. This was a problem for manufacturers, because their machines would have to be altered dramatically to package and bottle the liquid in the correct size. So they just put it in bags. There we go. Problem solved. They're also doing the same with water.
Because we needed to know if there were flying bears in Canada, we investigated. Turns out there aren't. The bear flew because it was hit by a car. But the Canadians, nevertheless, did not seem phased. They said it happens with deer all the time.
Not only is this real, but it's a huge thing in Canada. When the snow falls fresh, they break out their maple syrup. There's even recipes on it. Hey, it's cheap and literally fell from the sky, so might as well eat it, we guess.
One Tumblr user described their experience. "When I first moved to Canada, I showed up to a party and started putting my beer in the fridge. The entire kitchen stopped to stare in wonder and disbelief until someone yelled out ‘don’t fucking waste pizza space. This whole country is a f**kin icebox."" Fair enough, Canada, fair enough.
Alright, Americans are aware that we're known for not knowing where anything is. But admittedly, Canada is confusing. They literally have the Thousand Islands. That's 1,864 islands. That's a lot of islands. We'll stick to the 50 states.
Whenever we go to the bank, we're always thinking how cool it would be if we could see through our money. Right? Well, that's what they thought in Canada, so they did it. They're actually made out of polymer, and supposed to last longer.
13. They Don't Call Their Sweatshirts 'Sweatshirts'
This is called a Caesar. And it's supposed to be a hangover cure. It can be garnished with celery, olives, limes, or cucumbers. The other ingredients? Your preference of vodka, four dashes of Worcestershire sauce, and some Clamato juice.
