Too bad because I have insiders info on the test:

Canadian citizenship test: Question One: Do you want to be Canadian?
Question Two: Really?

I've always saw it as a generally decent country with a clean reputation, which is worth a lot for me, but I don't wanna live in a country where people are insecure, ashamed, and feel the need to compare themselves to someone else all the time. I'm in a MMO RPG klan team with 10 Americans and 4 Canadians and at least 1 and a half of the Canadians fit the inferiority complex description so I keep on encountering it. Even when I went to Britain and Australia neither of them gave 2 dusty f*cks about America or ever mentioning it, which was very very very comforting. I want to move out of America of course, but at least Americans aren't so bitter when it comes to being complimented, at least not right away. Mainly I just wanted to GTFO California but waiting until I finish my BA which is in 2 months. I might end up just aiming for Seattle, as it seems like the party is wild there in terms of jobs/economy/etc. that way I can always spend a weekend in Vancouver and enjoy the city for a day or two. That way I can have best of both worlds. I hope it works out.
Yea that is part of life, everyone has different beliefs/attitudes/behaviors many of which you man not like or agree with... and you know you can just not listen or talk to those 1 and a half Canadians right?

Or, as we say elsewhere on the 'Net, "an anecdote does not equal data."

Was the half a guy talking out of his head or his ass, because that could really sway the data one way or another...
