Every time this sixty year old masters degree Geologist is working at his chosen profession, he is using computer programs that say "made in Canada" all over them. The instruments that gather his data in such an exacting degree all say "made in Canada" all over them. Each time some brand new whiz-bang tech improvement comes down the pipe that makes his job easier...it says "made in Canada" all over it.
And he works alongside a bunch of technicians who are also, largely, "made in Canada". (like me)
Thus...he has been convinced, over a period of several decades, that we are a nation of freakin geniuses. I chose not correct this false impression, while I worked with him for several months.
It wasn't a giant leap of faith for him to believe that we Canadians had been far ahead of the rest of the world in gene-splicing, way back in the fifties.
The idea that we had tried splicing human DNA into a root vegetable, way back then, was a bit of a stretch...but he went for it.
Especially once he had seem a photo of Carolyn Parrish. And had listened to her speak. That convinced him. [img]tongue.gif[/img] [img]graemlins/lmao.gif[/img]
It was a near-miss, though (whew!)
Now...can someone please remove this silly turnip from the power base in Ottawa? Before she makes us look truly STUPID...and before she manages to undo a whole LOT of good hard work that the brighter lights in this country have accomplished?
There's not a moment to lose!
Paul Martin seems to feel the same way. He gave her a pretty big verbal slap in Parliament today. And loudly pointed out the "her views were NOT the views of this Government, or of the Canadian public in general".
Save Canada's good rep. Duct tape her main vent and then use her as a doorstop for an obscure bar in Yellowknife.
Do it now. [img]graemlins/lmao.gif[/img]
